STEWART GIVES BACK Bring a turkey, earn an honorary Panther Paw

Put A Sock In It!



Black Friday in Tacoma takes the music to local merchants


KID POWER. Stewart

Middle School students DaZhana Schreiber, 13, and Sedric Ferguson, 13, carried in Safe Streets’ donations to the school’s food drive.



By Kathleen Merryman

Stewart Middle School students have been putting the thanks back into Thanksgiving this month. The 516 students and many of their families have organized a food drive and invited their neighbors to contribute and celebrate with them Thursday at Stewart Gives Back Night. The centerpiece spaghetti dinner, principal Janet Gates-Cortez noted, is not your ordinary school spaghetti. This is the school cook’s personal masterpiece, the one that leaves diners begging for the recipe. First on the agenda was assembling all the donated non-perishable items into 25 food baskets. Kale Iverson’s students will harvest fresh kale, chard, beets and carrots from the school garden to add with the turkeys next week. That’s where we can kick in a little help. This is the year of no cheap frozen turkey sales, Gates-Cortez noted. Just look at the grocery ads. So far, Stewart has only two turkeys committed. That leaves you eligible to earn a prized Panther Paw. If you live in Stewart’s East Side Neighborhood, chances are you know all about the Paw cards. Merchants and residents can request a stack of them from the school. Then, when they see a Stewart student setting an example of kindness, help and respect, they fill out the card with the child’s name, date and nature of the worthy deed. The cards have a lovely effect on the children who earn them, Gates-Cortez said. Those comments tell children that their neighbors notice them, and respect and like them. They tell them that they are valuable citizens, and they encourage them to continue on that good path. Bring a turkey, or money to buy one, to Stewart early

ų Here is where to put a sock in it:



acoma Weekly’s entryway is getting cluttered, and we are over the moon about it. Actually, we are at 2588 Pacific Hwy., between the Harley Davidson dealership and Meineke Car Care Center, but the boxes of food, toys and, coming soon, socks, are sending our hearts skyward. Folks are stopping by with donations for Toys for Tots, PCMARVETS, Charlie’s Dinosaur and the Thanksgiving food basket drive organized by Planting Seeds. Never mind that two of those drives date back to the spring and summer. Over the past year, we’ve been loaded up with proof that Tacomans don’t forget who needs help. If they know where to give, they keep doing it. Just tell them where and when and that it’s never too late. Last November, the Tacoma Weekly staff embarked on our first big community drive. We asked you to keep alive what was then the 10th annual citywide sock drive. It started a decade ago a few days before Thanksgiving when Wes Wesley, who ran the donations closet at Catholic Community Services’ Hospitality Kitchen, told me, “Socks. Socks are like gold.” Many, most, of the guests at Hospitality Kitchen, Nativity House and the city’s other drop-in centers get cold feet during the winter. They spend a lot of time walking, and if their socks get wet, they stay wet. Wet feet are beyond miserable. They are susceptible to disease that can lead to amputations. Not to get too pragmatic here, but it’s in taxpayers’ best interests to do whatever it takes to help people of the street keep their feet. Given that, good wool or polyester socks that wick moisture away from the skin are, indeed, like gold. So Wesley asked for the best for the poorest, and you responded. Each year, you donated around 1,000 pairs of socks shared among drop-in centers, X See CHARITY / page A10

Thinking big about Black Friday, Zach Powers let a few anti-megacorp rants cycle through his brain. You know, the brawls that break out when giant retailers advertise smashing deals on electronics and games to generate “excitement,” then deliberately understock the goods, and then send forth PR people who say they are shocked, shocked, that customers fought over the loot. Every year. You know, the megamerchants that open so early, if they close at all, that a family Thanksgiving is but a fading dream to their employees. You know, the media turning Thanksgiving weekend into an indicator of whether we’re doing our civic duty by buying enough stuff to support the economy. Then Powers thought small. He thought about Tacoma’s gutsy buy-local movement, the shops and people it supports and the money it keeps in the area. And he thought about making it fun. Powers is no minimalist. He likes it when people buy stuff, from movie tickets to CDs. He’s director of marketing and communications for The Grand Cinema. (Buy the annual membership, and popcorn by the tub!) He’s also Rockwell Powers hip hop artist, who has just released his third CD, “BUILD,” with DJ Phinisey. They would be pleased if you would

Pothole pig’s


So. Junett St. and So. 47th 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.

  SsRr2 By Steve Dunkelberger

The Chevrolet Corvette SR2 was a project car designed and built by General Motors at the peak of its dominance at country’s largest automaker. The company had annual revenues that rivaled the gross national product of many countries, some $13 billion a year during the middle of the last century. It was America’s largest company, more than double the runner up, Standard Oil. So GM set out to make a “statement car.� The Corvette was new to the market and it had yet to become the signature vehicle it is today. The Corvette is the first all-American sports car built by an American car manufacturer. The SR2 helped craft that legend. Zora Arkus-Duntov, known in car circles as the “father of the Corvette,� crafted the “Special Racing� or “Sebring Racer,� with Chevrolet’s Chief Engineer Ed Cole, with the goal of creating a car that could outrun the competition. The SR 1 was showcased at the Daytona Speedweeks in February of


1956. Its V8 engine produced 240 horsepower and carried the car to an average speed of 150.58 miles per hour. Fine-tuning and upgrades came throughout that year and led to the SR2, with inspiration from Jerry Earl, who was head of GM’s styling department at the time and an automotive sports car enthusiast. The SR-2 models had a chassis similar to the Sebring cars, with a body designed by Robert Cumberford and Tony Lapine using inspiration from

City News TACOMA BECOMES FIRST STAR-CERTIFIED COMMUNITY Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s official. The Tacoma community is more sustainable than some might expect with a rating of four out of five stars. Tacoma is the first of 30 pilot communities to submit and receive STAR certification, the first national community livability and sustainability rating system. The quantitative assessment is robust. The Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office of Environmental Policy and Sustainability led the communitywide effort to collect and analyze more than 500 possible areas of data-supported achievement across seven categories. Tacoma performed particularly well under built environment; climate and energy; education, arts and community; and natural systems, leaving more room for improvement in the economy and jobs, equity and empowerment and health and safety categories. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the values of this assessment is its ability to quantify future progress.

Local governments can use the rating system to evaluate, quantify and promote livability and sustainability efforts. They can also share expertise with each other. As other communities are certified, Tacomans will be able to see how Tacoma benchmarks in apple-to-apple comparisons. Mayor Marilyn Strickland accepted a certification plaque during the National League of Cities conference in Seattle on Nov. 16. She stated that, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The STAR rating will help us identify gaps for improving the quality of life for our residents in a variety of areas ranging from civic engagement to transportation and access to family-wage jobs.â&#x20AC;?

MAN CHARGED FOR KILLING GIRLFRIEND Pierce County Prosecutor Mark Lindquist charged Refugio Sanchez, Jr., 32, with Murder in the Second Degree for beating his girlfriend, Angela Cannizzio, and strangling her to death in their Lakewood home. On the evening of Nov. 12, 2013, the defendant consumed a six-pack of Bud Light and a â&#x20AC;&#x153;shot of Bacardiâ&#x20AC;? after returning home from work at Joint Base Lewis McChord. The defendant and the victim began arguing about the victimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s estranged husband, who lives in Connecticut. The defendant became angry and struck the victim twice with an upright vacuum, including one blow to the back of her head. He then dragged her limp body down the stairs by her legs. The defendant said the victim appeared to be unconscious and that â&#x20AC;&#x153;she was like a rag doll.â&#x20AC;? At the bottom of the stairs, he slammed the victimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face into the floor and strangled her to death.

The medical examiner determined the cause of death to be strangulation and blunt force trauma to the head. The victim suffered multiple injuries including a lacerated liver, broken rib and fractured hyoid. She leaves behind two children, ages 2 and 13.

FALLEN OFFICERS FOOD DRIVE /,37:/,(3.90,-(5+/<5.,9 By David Rose Correspondent

For the first 43 years of my life, Nov. 29 was simply a day I celebrated my birthday with close friends and family. That all changed in 2009 when a murderous gunman killed the DAVID ROSE four Lakewood Police officers. Now, I dedicate that day to their memory and to helping the department collect donations for their annual Fallen Officers Food Drive. My plea to you is to join us in helping feed thousands of families this holiday season. Lakewood Police Chief Bret Farrar says, “If I sit down and start to think about it, I can tear up really easily. It’s still very emotional for me and everybody in the Lakewood PD and that’s why we look so forward to this food drive to really take that bit of negative energy and turn it positive to do something positive for the community.” This year’s goal is 150,000 pounds of

food and $50,000 for Food Life Line and the Emergency Food Network. The food drive is dedicated this year to the memory of Washington State Trooper Sean O’Connell. He was killed in the line of duty on May 31 when his motorcycle collided with a box

truck in Skagit County. You can drop off donations at any Les Schwab Tire Center or you can deliver the food to the Lakewood Police Department at 9401 Lakewood Dr. SW, Lakewood, WA 98499.

Social media rallies Hilltop neighbors in fear of ‘backsliding’ By Steve Dunkelberger

It is a case that most fits the “old Hilltop” of the 1980s, when the neighborhood was plagued with drug dealers, gang shootings, street-corner love brokers and random gun shots in the night. But senseless violence struck again this month, and neighbors are worried. Justin Winter and his fiancée Mishele Dupree were walking with a group of friends earlier this month, when a group of about 20 teens started yelling at them from the corner of Martin Luther King Jr. Way and 19th Street. The gaggle of teens then jumped Winters, hitting and kicking him to the ground because he had apparently slighted a female member of the group a few days prior by refusing to give her a cigarette. “All of a sudden I see five guys stomp my friend in the face,” witness Nikki Weather-

police officials to talk about what they believe is a rise in crime in their once troubled neighborhood.

head said. “I don’t want to live in a neighborhood where that goes unnoticed.” They kept kicking as he fell to the concrete. His jaw shattered by the time the beat down ended.

The victims called police. And they waited, and waited and waited. The group has been seen at the corner several times since Winter and Dupree were told the case was “under investiga-

tion.” They waited. Then they took to Facebook and told their story. Hilltop residents wanted action, and some suggested vigilante solutions. Others circulated a petition to reopen the Hilltop Police Substation in hopes it would boost patrols of the Upper Tacoma neighborhood. A community meeting with Tacoma Police Department top brass and Hilltop Action Coalition (HAC) gathered Monday night, Nov. 18, to find solutions for what some fear is a return of the violent days of the neighborhood’s distant past despite Hilltop having the lowest crime rate in Tacoma, according to statistics on reported crimes per capita. “We aren’t setting off the police alarms,” HAC organizer Lisa Lawrence said. “We know that people are scared. We know that people are concerned, and we know that people are frustrated.” X See HILLTOP / page A4

Old rockers apparently never die; they just get weird. That is the lesson we take from a Nov. 18 case in Tacoma. A man apparently went to band practice and decided it was a good idea to buy a 24-ounce beer for the 19-year-old grandson of a woman he used to date. The teen got drunk. The two went to the teen’s apartment on the 4000 block of Lawrence Street. His family was not pleased with his intoxicated state and began to argue with the older wanna-be rock star. Police were called. He went to jail with a questioning look about why he was being arrested. He fought the law, and the law won. The buyer of a used car from a lot along the 6400 block of South Tacoma Way was having a bit of buyer’s remorse on Nov. 18, when his 1998 Mercury was reportedly having engine troubles just a day after he purchased it “as is.” The man returned to the dealership in the afternoon and demanded mechanics fix it. None were available. That was news he didn’t want to hear. He reportedly “hocked up a loogie” in his throat and spit a slime blob into the sales clerk’s face. That prompted a call to the police. Police handcuffed the man. He was later release with a citation for assault. Compiled by Steve Dunkelberger

GO COUGS! A roster of 22 Foss High School seniors received early acceptance notices from Washington State University

this week. A total of six students were accepted last year. By Steve Dunkelberger

Washington State University recruiters held early admission acceptance ceremonies around Tacoma High Schools this week to award admission letters to the top students with thoughts of wearing crimson and gray next year. Mount Tahoma has 13 students accepted under early admission; Lincoln has about 30; Stadium has 20 and Wilson has about 15. But the big story this year is at Foss, where 22 of the 35 early applying students received acceptance letters. Foss only had six Pullman-bound prospects last year. Counselors are now working with the remaining 13 students to reapply by the official deadline on Jan. 1. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The idea with them is to give them a jump start in the process and work with them on what they need to do,â&#x20AC;? WSUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Assistant Director of Regional Enrollment Sativah Jones said, noting that she is a 2004 Foss grad. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These students are way ahead

of the game as far as that is concerned.â&#x20AC;? The Foss students who received early notification of acceptance to Washington State University are: Sarah Sachs, Alan Ngo, Darren Yann, Marcus Anthony Ransom, Bailey Dugan, Jessica Orozco, Cameo Miller, Daniel Phung, Jaysha Wharton, Jonathan Thomas, Laura Dittell, Kylie Thornton, Jenny Dittell, Savannah Gregory, Cenecia Hopkins, Emani Donaldson, Brianna Fenske, Jeanelle Vega, Bao Nguyen, Phu-Lam Pham, Michael Cabrera and Jennifer Hoang. Most of them are expecting other acceptance letters through the holiday season, but the WSU notification starts the college decision making. Such is the case for Sachs, a Regents Scholarship student along with Miller. Sachs is also looking at schools in New England, including Wellesley College to gain training for a career in something related to math and science education. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It sounds clichĂŠ, but I really want to make a difference in the world,â&#x20AC;? Sachs

said. While the WSU acceptance marks the first of many letters to come for these students, it is the only one that matters for Donaldson and Hopkins. They have talked about being roommates at WSU since they were freshmen. They have been friends their entire lives and want to share their college experiences after their high school graduation. They have it all planned out. They will live in a dormitory for the first year, someplace with big bathrooms. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And it has to be co-ed, of course,â&#x20AC;? Donaldson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want the full college experience,â&#x20AC;? Hopkins chimed in with a laugh. They plan to get an apartment together once they become sophomores as Donaldson studies communications and Hopkins seeks her criminal justice or education degree. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Both of us are first generation college students so getting into any school is a big accomplishment for the whole family,â&#x20AC;? Donaldson said.

Despite the recent assault and a few other crimes, she said, the neighborhood, the most diverse in the city, will stay safe if people get involved by watching after their neighbors and calling police whenever they suspect crime. Much of the Monday meeting echoed those thoughts. Neighbors need to know each other, and they need to watch out for each other. And they have to share their stories. And they need to stay vigilant. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Local residents took back the streets of Hilltop block by block from gangs and violence back in the 1980â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, creating what is now one of, if not the, safest neighborhoods in Tacoma,â&#x20AC;? stated Lawrence in her meeting announcement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To allow it to backslide would disrespect the hard work of those brave individuals. We owe it to those who fought, as well as future generations, to continue our vigilance.â&#x20AC;? Tacoma Police Chief Donald Ramsdell was a beat cop â&#x20AC;&#x153;back in the day.â&#x20AC;? He remembers pulling cars over for crimes only to hear gun shots a block away during the arrest. Those days are largely gone because neighbors back then said enough was enough and got involved in their community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Public safety is not a spectatorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sport,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Will Washington be big in Boeingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s jumbo jet future? By Don C. Brunell When the first passengers took off in Boeingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 747 in 1970, the aircraft was dubbed the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Queen of the Skies.â&#x20AC;? Since then, the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mammoth plant just south of Everett has been the kingpin of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s jumbo jet production. To date, Boeing has built 1,500 747s â&#x20AC;&#x201D; all of them designed and assembled in Washington. In 1994, the company launched the 777. Developed in consultation with eight major airlines, it was designed to replace older wide-body airliners and offer passenger capacity between that of the 767 and the 747. The 777 was a technical marvel. It was Boeingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first fly-by-wire airliner (electric motors to move flaps) and the first commercial aircraft designed entirely by computer. It too was designed and assembled in Washington. But things are changing. Just as Boeing competes headto-head with Airbus in the jumbo jet market, Washington is competing with South Carolina and other parts of the country to assemble the next generation of jumbo jets. Nowhere is that rivalry more evident than the next generation of Boeingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 777: the 777X. The stakes are high for everyone. Boeing employs more than 86,500 people in Washington, averaging $120,000 a year in salary and benefits. In addition, the company spends more than $4.6 billion a year

on purchases from 2,000 suppliers and vendors in the state. But over the years, Boeing has shifted engineering and operations and thousands of jobs out of Washington. To stem that tide, Gov. Jay Inslee (D) convened a legislative task force to find ways to make our state more attractive for Boeing to build the 777X here. The governor has reason to be concerned. At the Paris Air Show last spring, Boeing announced that the 777X and the newer, larger 787-10 might be assembled elsewhere. The prime candidate is South Carolina. One big factor is the high cost of doing business in Washington. The governor asked lawmakers to find ways to address those costs and provide tax incentives to offset them. Legislators are also asked to address environmental regulations, workersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; compensation costs, and education and training â&#x20AC;&#x201C; expenses that impact all employers and local governments in Washington. The 777X could determine our stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s role in future jumbo jet production. Using 20 percent less fuel than the current 777, the 777X will be the first twin-engine jet able to fly longhaul routes with payloads comparable to the larger jumbos. According to Bloombergâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s News Service, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s likely to accelerate airlinesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; shift away from mammoth, four-engine fuel-guzzlers such as Boeingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest 747-8 and Airbusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s double-decker A380.

Boeingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s order backlog with 777s has swelled to nearly 350 while it has just under 60 747s yet to build. So the preference is clearly in the 777â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s direction. The 777X will borrow composite technology from Boeingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 787 Dreamliner. That is good news for us, because that technology has been perfected in Washington. But Boeing is maximizing its flexibility â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and its options â&#x20AC;&#x201D; by placing composite technology in South Carolina as well. Remember, the 787 is assembled in both Everett and Charleston. The location of the new 777X is also important because the winning site will have an edge as Boeing develops its future aircraft. The stakes are high for Boeing as well, because global competition is getting tougher. While Boeing and Airbus are going head-to-head today, in the future, Brazilian, Canadian, Chinese and Russian aircraft manufacturers will compete for a greater share of the commercial airplane market. Boeing estimates that between now and 2031, the fleet of passenger aircraft will double. If our state is going to keep those high-paying aerospace jobs, we need to take a serious look at the cost factors that Boeing, and for that matter, other manufacturers face in this increasingly competitive world. Don Brunell is the president of the Association of Washington Business.

Pay attention to teachers who bully By Laura Finley, Ph.D. While bullying between school children has rightly received much attention in recent years, other types of school-based bullying are rarely discussed. Bullying of students by their teachers remains a significant problem and is every bit as dangerous as peer-to-peer bullying. Teacher-on-student bullying takes many forms, ranging from physical to verbal and emotional abuse. Like youth bullies, teachers are most likely to pick on students they perceive as vulnerable. Teachers can take advantage of the inordinate amount of power they have over students and can generally feel safe that they will face no repercussions, as school systems are set up by adults and supposedly any and all â&#x20AC;&#x153;disciplineâ&#x20AC;? is for the childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;own good.â&#x20AC;? Parents and administrators often do not believe students who report that their teacher is a bully. There are no tools specifically designed to measure teacher-on-student bullying, while there is a plethora of surveys and other data sets about youth bullying. Sometimes, however, incidents of teacher-on-student bullying do make the news. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Teaching Toleranceâ&#x20AC;? featured a story in fall 2011 about a teacher who encouraged her class to make pig noises at a boy she thought needed to be more organized. That

same fall, the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Today Showâ&#x20AC;? aired a video of a teacher berating a special needs student for her appearance and her class performance. The tape was captured when the girlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parents sent her to school wearing a wire. On the tape, the teacher swears, verbally humiliates the girl, and throws a chair around the room. In October 2012, another teacher embarrassed a six-year-old boy who kept twirling his hair by tying it into pigtails in front of the class. Later that year, an elementary school teacher encouraged students to spit at a 9-yearold who had made a â&#x20AC;&#x153;raspberryâ&#x20AC;? at a classmate, while a New York City math teacher was â&#x20AC;&#x153;reassignedâ&#x20AC;? to administrative duty for swatting at and spitting at students. Students claimed that this was a regular occurrence that just happened to be caught on video. In June 2013 the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Huffington Postâ&#x20AC;? reported about a Florida science teacher who harassed his students by writing test questions like this one: â&#x20AC;&#x153;A 50 kg student has a momentum of 500 kg m/s as the teacher launches him toward the wall, what is the velocity of the student heading toward the wall?â&#x20AC;? Policies at many schools allow this type of abuse. Corporal punishment remains an option for school districts in 20 states, despite decades of research showing that it is harmful to students and counterproductive. In their 1999


book â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dangerous Schools,â&#x20AC;? Irwin Hyman and Pamela Snook document the stories of students who were hurt so badly by a teacherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paddling that they began hemorrhaging. Students told them horror stories about being beaten with all kinds of implements, often in front of others so as to maximize the humiliation, all with the approval of the school district. They also told stories of other types of degradation, such as when teachers refused to allow them to use bathroom facilities and they were forced to urinate on themselves. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get me wrong: Most teachers do not do these things. Most teachers work hard and care deeply for their students. It is also true, however, that most students do not bully anyone, either. Yet we still work to end the problem of bullying because we know how awful it is, both in the short and long term. I believe that we must also critically examine teacher-onstudent bullying as well, including those policies that endorse abusive behavior. If we do not, our silence says that bullying is OK as long as the perpetrator stands in front of the classroom.

As houses around the 253 fill with the scent of baked pies and roasting turkeys for Thanksgiving, ponder the fact that there are many of your neighbors who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have pies cooking in the oven, or hams roasting on a fire or a roof to shelter them from the rain. Official statistics state that about 12 percent of Pierce County residents live below the poverty line, but that stat might be much higher because of the chronic trouble of underreporting of such things. In any event, there are a lot of people in need as the economy continues to flounder and jobs, even if they are available, fail to make ends meet for many families. That fact makes the holidays particularly stiff since heating bills go up as the thermometer level drops, and children are out of school for holiday break, which creates child care expenses or lost work hours for parents while society demands a culture of spending and gift giving. Toss in the expenses of a persistent cough or a slip on an icy road, and the balance tips against a lot of paycheck-to-paycheck neighbors. But there are many ways to help your neighbors in need. Businesses, including the Tacoma Weekly, are gathering food and supplies. So drop a few cans of soup in the collection bins or a few dollars into the collection baskets. Maybe even donate some time to aid the effort and see the need first hand. Another effort to watch is Emergency Food Networkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual Empty Bowls event this weekend. Groups and individual artists decorate bowls for sale with all the proceeds going to efforts to aid the needy. Empty Bowls began as a grassroots project more than a decade ago for local artists and community members to work together to assist people suffering from hunger. The event now spans to 12 countries and many states across the U.S., generating millions of dollars for various hunger relief agencies. Bowl buyers then get them filled with soups of all sorts, donated by Pacific Grill, The Swiss, Adriatic Grill, Infinite Soups, AmeRAWcan Bistro, The French Hen, The Hub, Masa, Alina Soups, and Chambers Bay. More than 1,200 bowls are purchased for the home or for holiday gifts, and more than 700 bowls of soup are consumed during the two-hour event. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event will be held on Saturday, Nov. 23, at Charles Wright Academy from 1-3:30 p.m. Admission is free. Bowl prices start at $10 and go up from there. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Empty Bowls has an exciting new element, an Empty Bowls Cookbook. This cookbook contains more than 50 soup recipes from local restaurants, elected officials and executive directors of nonprofit organization from around Pierce County. The cookbook will be sold at Empty Bowls for $20 per book, with all proceeds going to EFN. For the last 14 years, EFN has hosted Empty Bowls in Pierce County, highlighting works from talented veteran artists and new local talent. In 2012, EFN raised $28,000 from Empty Bowls, this is the equivalent of 148,965 meals for food-insecure Pierce County residents. In 2012, EFN distributed 15.1 million pounds of food to 67 area food banks, meal sites and shelters. EFN made it possible for our partner food programs to accommodate 1,381,602 total visits, providing 16.7 million meals to hungry people in Pierce County. Since 2008, the demand for emergency food has increased 67 percent. With an administrative overhead of under 4 percent, EFN distributes $12 worth of food for every $1 it receives, so a little really goes a long way. The above opinion represents the view of Tacoma Weeklyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s editorial board.

Letter to the Editor Dear Editor, The gift from Bank of America for the food banks is very timely (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bank of America gives $200,000 to FISH Food Banks,â&#x20AC;? TW, Nov. 15.) The food banks are being called on more than ever. There were one in five children having â&#x20AC;&#x153;food insecurityâ&#x20AC;? even before the Nov. 1 cut back in the food stamps program due to the stimulus monies expiring. Now even more cuts are on the horizon with the proposals in the new Farm Bill. But what are the underlying causes? Poor wages, no jobs, just to name a few. Citizens, time to contact your legislators and ask them to do something about this. But while they are answering the causes question, tell your elected officials to feed the hungry!

CHARD WINS TITLE AT 3A SWIM MEET Curtis, Stadium swim at 4A meet

LATE RALLY LIFTS BELLARMINE PREP PAST NEWPORT Turnovers hurt Lakes in loss to Meadowdale


own two touchdowns with less than four minutes to play, most teams would cash it in. But Bellarmine Prep pulled off some familiar playoff magic, rallying to score 17 points in the final three minutes – capped by a 20-yard field goal by Matthew Philichi with nine seconds remaining – for a 38-35 win at Newport on Nov. 16 in the 4A state playoffs. “We’ve played a lot of games like this,” said Lions senior quarterback Lou Millie, referencing some hardfought playoff victories in recent years. “This is just like usual for us. We’ve got a lot of heart, and we want to stay together as long as we can, so that’s why we play like this.” The Lions trailed 35-21 after Newport quarterback J.P. Routen connected with tight end Drew Sample for a 54-yard touchdown pass off a play action with 11:13 to go in the game. But Millie began the comeback effort two drives later, finding Garrett McKay – who finished with 14 catches for 232 yards and three touchdowns – on a deep post rout for a 57-yard touchdown. That cut it to 35-27, after Philichi’s extra point was wide left. The Lions forced a quick threeand-out, and a 10-yard punt gave Bellarmine Prep the ball at the Newport 35-yard line. Millie connected with McKay on a 27-yard pass, and Jamal Ervin scored from three yards out – his second touchdown of the game – on the next play. Millie then connected with Drew Griffin, who made an acrobatic catch to haul in the two-point conversion and tie it 35-35. “They have realized that it doesn’t matter what is going on, just go hard,” said Bellarmine Prep head coach Tom Larsen. “They have bought into (the belief that) the scoreboard doesn’t tell you how to play, your heart does. And they did that.” After stopping Newport on three plays the next drive, Millie tackled the Knights’ David Kim three yards short of a first down on a fake punt attempt, giving Bellarmine Prep the ball at Newport’s 37-yard line with under a minute left. He hit Griffin for a 24-yard strike to set up the game-winner by Philichi.

FULL SPEED. Wilson’s Madeleine Dodge (top) and Foss’ Sarah Sachs (bottom) swim during the 200-yard freestyle at the 3A state swim meet on Nov. 16. By Jeremy Helling

The 3A state meet was the final piece of business for Foss swimmer Emma Chard before preparing for her college career at Boise State. And the Falcons’ senior didn’t disappoint, winning the 100-yard freestyle in an All-American time of 50.17 seconds on Nov. 16 at the Weyerhaeuser King County Aquatic Center in Federal Way. “It’s been really fun this season,” Chard said shortly after leading off the meet with a 14th place finish in the 200-yard medley relay with seniors Sarah Sachs and Yana Kuloff and sophomore Nicole Ripley. “(I’ve) kind of been sad and happy at the same time. (But) I’m excited for this.” Chard added a second-place finish in the 100-yard breaststroke, finishing in a time of one minute and 3.89 seconds that earned AllAmerican consideration. Despite being hampered by a stress fracture in her foot early in the season, Sachs added a tenth-place finish in the 100-yard backstroke in a time of 1:00.53, and placed 13th in the 200-yard freestyle to help the Falcons finish 12th as a team with 54 points. “My first year as the girls coach was their freshman year,” said Falcons head coach Matt Wood. “It’s really been fun to see them grow from these little girls, and every year see them improve and improve…it’s been really fulfilling and fun to experience that with them and be a part of it.” Wilson sophomore Madeleine Dodge helped the Rams score 15 points to finish 28th, as she placed 15th in the 200-yard freestyle relay and teamed with Karli Stevenson, Rachel Duke and Kelly Tran to take 20th in the 400-yard freestyle relay. Wilson senior Hailey Viehmann took sixth in the diving competition with a score of 302.15. Dodge also took 21st in the 500-yard freestyle relay, while Stevenson placed 22nd in the 200-yard individual medley.

Freshman Kaycee Simpson helped lead the Stadium Tigers at the 4A state meet, placing 14th in the 200-yard individual medley and 16th in the 100-yard butterfly to score four of the Tigers’ six points. She later teamed with fellow freshman Cameron Thurston, sophomore Mellanie Muller and senior Amber Longrie to place 16th in the 200-yard freestyle relay in a time of one minute and 44.13 seconds. Longrie also teamed with senior Hannah Fransman, junior Katelyn Michael and sophomore Jensine Rasmussen to place 24th in the 200-yard medley relay. Curtis, meanwhile, scored 58 points to place 14th overall as a team. Senior Hannah Holly led the way for the Vikings, taking sixth in the 100-yard freestyle in a time of 54.13 seconds. Freshman Willow Lopez-Silvers narrowly missed advancing to the “A” final, taking ninth in the 100-yard freestyle in 54.23 seconds. The duo teamed with Jessica Wilson and Jenna Postma to place seventh in the 200yard freestyle relay in a time of one minute and 41.74 seconds. Holly, Postma, Wilson and Emma Friedman rounded out the meet with an 11th-place finish in the 400-yard freestyle relay.

:*/>(5:7(92:+6405(5; 05-0=,:,;;/9033,9 The final hurdle toward back-to-back titles proved to be the biggest challenge for Bellarmine Prep. Getting pushed to five sets for the first time all season, the Lions outlasted Curtis 25-22, 18-25, 25-17, 19-25, 15-9 in the 4A state volleyball championship on Nov. 16 at Saint Martin’s University to win the crown for the second straight year. “This was the right team to do it with, if any,” said Bellarmine Prep head coach Jody DeGroot. “These girls had to do

a lot of work, not just working on the court every day but they had to work with their heads a lot. Those little things pay off.” Narrows 4A MVP Courtney Schwan was again the catalyst for the Lions, finishing with a team-high 25 kills. But she was matched, and then some, by Vikings senior outside hitter Janell Sparks, who kept Curtis in the match with 32 kills. The Vikings embraced the challenge against the state’s top team from the start, blocking Schwan’s shot to take a 12-11

lead in the first set before sophomore Camryn Buell followed with an ace. Camryn and Taylor Buell helped lead the Vikings’ defensive effort on the day, consistently diving for digs to keep plays alive. “They were getting up every single thing we put down,” Schwan said. “It was definitely a challenge every point. It was never a one-ball kill. It’s a lot more fun that way.” The Lions regained the lead at 17-16 in the first set on a kill by sophomore Megan Jacobsen, and Claire Martin and Emily Newberry teamed to close it with a block. But Sparks responded in the second set, collecting three early kills to help the Vikings to a 10-5 lead, and adding five kills


in the final ten points to help the Vikings close it out. The Lions never trailed in the third set, as Jacobsen collected five of her 10 kills to give Bellarmine a 13-7 lead, and freshman McKenzie Schwan extended it to 19-11 with backto-back aces. Martin and Newberry again ended the set with a block. “That’s like a Division III (college) team,” said Curtis head coach Michael Miller of the Lions. “They’re awesome. Their third gear is everyone else’s fifth gear. It’s hard to keep that focus and momentum for the entire time.” Trailing 9-8 in the fourth set, Sparks slammed three straight kills to ignite a 10-1 run to give the Vikings control, and later

ended the set with a kill to even the match. But the Lions bounced back in the final set, as Martin began with a block and a kill by Reghan Pukis quickly made it 5-1. Sparks later had three kills in the span of five points to pull the Vikings within 12-8, but Schwan responded with a powerful slam and Newberry ended the match with a block. “Our (middle hitters) definitely lit up this match,” Schwan said. “I was very proud of them. You couldn’t stop them this match. That was wonderful.” Martin finished with six kills and seven blocks, while Newberry added five kills and six blocks for the Lions. Senior Jessica Woodruff tallied 13 kills and a block for Curtis.

SPORTSWATCH CRUSADERS FALL IN STATE OPENER Tacoma Baptist fell 4-1 to No. 1 St. Georgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on Nov. 16 in Spokane in their 2B boys soccer state tournament opener to be eliminated. The Dragonsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Nik Avakyan scored three second-half goals to provide the margin of victory, all three coming off assists from Erik Muelheims. Corey Spalding gave St. Georgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a 1-0 lead with a goal in the 27th minute. The Crusaders avoided the shutout when Casey Slattery â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the 2B state leading scorer â&#x20AC;&#x201C; scored off an assists from Austin Lutterloh in the 78th minute. Tacoma Baptist created several chances in the match, having taken 15 shots. The Crusaders finish with a 15-6-1 overall record, having gone 8-1 in SeaTac 2B play to finish second to Bear Creek.


ANNIE WRIGHT TAKES EIGHTH AT STATE After falling in their first match, Annie Wright rattled off two straight wins before falling in the consolation bracket to settle for eighth place at the 1A state volleyball tournament on Nov. 15-16 at the Yakima Valley SunDome. The Gators were topped 25-21, 25-17, 25-17 by Zillah in their opener on Nov. 15 to drop to the consolation bracket. It was the second straight year Annie Wright fell to Zillah in the opener. They rebounded to top South Whidbey 16-25, 25-13, 25-19, 25-22 later in the day, and beat Woodland 25-18, 17-25, 25-22, 27-25 on Nov. 16. The Gators fell 25-20, 25-17, 24-26, 26-24 to Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to earn eighth place. The Gators finished 17-3 overall on the season, as they won the Emerald City conference with a 14-0 record.

Newport had raced out to a 21-0 lead early in the second quarter, as Routen hit Sample for a 51-yard touchdown on the Knightsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first drive and Conner Baumann exploded for touchdown runs of 53 and 54 yards. Routen finished 6-for-7 for 212 yards and two touchdowns, and Baumann finished with 22 carries for 169 yards and three touchdowns. But Bellarmine Prep limited Baumann to just nine carries for 29 yards in the second half. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mr. Baumann has our respect,â&#x20AC;? said Larsen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Their team has our respect. We knew coming in it was going to be rough and tumble.â&#x20AC;? The Lions struggled on the ground early, as Nathan Goltermann was limited to just nine carries for 49 yards. But Millie started to get the passing game going midway through the second quarter, connecting with McKay for a 14-yard touchdown to cut it to 21-7 with 5:18 to go until halftime. He connected with McKay for an 11-yard score on the Lionsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; next drive to make it 21-14 with 1:49 until


It couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have started much worse for Lakes against Meadowdale. The Lancers committed turnovers on their first two drives, and lost quarterback Nick Webster to an early knee injury on their way to a season-ending 24-0 loss to the Mavericks in the 3A state playoffs on Nov. 15 at Edmonds-Woodway High School. Webster was intercepted by Josiah Evans on the third play of the game, and the Mavericks converted it into a 34-yard field goal by Brett Schafer. Then, after scrambling for 46 yards on the first play of the second

drive, Webster was pushed out of bounds and came up hobbling.

Meadowdale forced a quick three-and-out defensively, and was in the end zone again with 22 seconds to go in the first quarter on a 1-yard quarterback sneak by Jeremiah Evans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That first quarter kind of told the tale right there,â&#x20AC;?

For the past nine years, Pit Stop Deli has been a quiet success, offering loyal customers delicious, hefty submarine sandwiches for a great price. Located at 1820 E. Portland Ave., owner Lisette Clarkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mobile food truck has reliably provided hungry truck drivers and workers with a quick, hearty lunch option. Although Clark has no formal experience in restaurants, she attributes the success of the deli so far to hard work, long hours and lots of practice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We buy everything fresh, and use only the highest quality meats,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to be hungry to eat here.â&#x20AC;? The restaurantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roster of regular customers continues to grow, mainly by word-of-mouth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have gotten to know our customers very well,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have gotten to the point where we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need big signs outside. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve grown by word of mouth.â&#x20AC;?

to mix it up every so often. Regular specials include Taco Tuesday, Reubens on Thursdays, tuna and clam chowder on Fridays, and usually meatball subs on Mondays.

next week, and you, too, can get a pat of the paw. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have earned a place in the Communities that Care program that has operated in and around Stewart for five years. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a six-year grant that gives the school extra resources to invite families and neighbors into school life.

WCharity From page A1

Phoenix Housing Network and Pierce County Housing Authority. This year, all Emergency Food Network and FISH Food Banks are joining the drive. The new socks you take to your local food bank will stay in your neighborhood. Last year, Communities in Schools joined the drive, and broadened the range of great socks to share. With a place for every sort of footwear, we counted 2,920 pairs, including cute pairs for little kids, athletic socks and socks for work. And those were only the ones we counted. Hundreds more went directly to services â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and onto happy feet. We learned, too, how much fun people had when they joined the drive. Students at Franklin Elementary School turned it into a contest. St. Matthew Episcopal Church parishioners trimmed their tree with socks. City of Tacoma employees set up drop boxes in their departments, and Columbia Bank employees invited patrons to donate. Tacoma Strength & Conditioning challenged patrons KMPSHoHoHoTWad6x4.pdf 11/18/2013 2:12:48 PM of other gyms to match them.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our focus is on preventing bullying and supporting giving back,â&#x20AC;? Gates-Cortez said. Stewart Gives Back Night is part of it, as are neighborhood screenings and discussions of an antibullying film so powerful that Gates refers to it simply as â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Film.â&#x20AC;? Lawyers, real estate agents, police, Safe Streets groups, Catholic Religous sisters, Gibson Gardens residents and Pacific Avenue merchants, including Josefinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mexican restaurant have gotten involved with Stewart through the

grant, Gates-Cortez said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been like getting a big hug.â&#x20AC;? And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s working. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are seeing big changes in behavior. Kids are more settled,â&#x20AC;? she said. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the norm now that when Stewart kids go on a field trip, the feedback is about how attentive and courteous they are. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a powerful change, and one we can support with something as simple as a frozen turkey.

At Thanksgiving dinner at our house, we say grace, then pass the collection basket for money weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll spend on Fred Meyerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legendary half-off sock sale on Black Friday.

Those members of the Marine Corps League work with the state Department of Social and Health Services caseworkers who enroll kids on the eligibility list. The social workers are the contact people for families. And they collaborate with Pierce County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department deputies, including. Det. Ed Troyer. Troyer, the department spokesman who goes on television with the details of all our bad news, has a semi-secret life spreading good works. His connections at Port of Tacoma alert him when shipments of toys are bound for surplus. His friends in the community look forward to the fun of joining the drive that dates back to 1947. And fun it can be. Last year, Troyer combined monetary donations, summoned teams of elves and gave them each a $500 VISA card and challenged them to spend it on the best possible deals within five hours. This year, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re aiming at giving $40,000 worth of toys to needy children in the South Sound.

If you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t extort your family for socks for cold feet, what can you extort from them? Toys For Tots, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what. That brings us to the other boxes in our lobby now. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re thrilled to join the 80-plus drop sites throughout Pierce County as a Toys For Tots collection site. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re excited to work with the people who run the show, the Marine Corps League Detachment #504, with George Hight as volunteer coordinator. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a Tacoma Weekly reader and Hightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name sounds familiar, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because he and Kelley Byers founded PCMARVETS, which connects veterans to the benefits they have earned. Those guys are the kings of logistics, picking up donations and enlisting the volunteers who come to sort them from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re interested in joining those crews, e-mail Hight at or call him at (253) 861-4525.

WShopping consider it (and its siblings, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kids in the Backâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kids in the Back IIâ&#x20AC;?) for holiday giving, or receiving. But Powers does believe in shopping as a deliberate choice, rather than a Pavlovian response. He likes the way Go Local and Shift Happens have been encouraging that, and he came up with an idea to add to that work: He has enlisted five musical acts to perform at five downtown stores on Black Friday afternoon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Each set will be three or four songs, 15 minutes,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want it to work like a flash mob dance. I want people to stand there and engage with the music and art, and then get on with their shopping.â&#x20AC;? Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paired the acts with stores that suit their styles. At 1 p.m., Olivia Joy Hustoft and Jenny Snipstead will start the event at Learning Sprout Toys at 809 Pacific Ave. Their ukulele sweetness is perfect for kids and their families, Powers said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wanted to find something for the toy store that is playful and gentle and warm, something a kid can stand around and engage in,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be a great fit.â&#x20AC;? And then it will be over,

and Powers will be setting up for some 2 p.m. hip hop for UrbanXchangeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s target audience â&#x20AC;&#x201C; people from middle school-age to about 30 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at 1932 Pacific Ave. At 3 p.m. Goldfinch, one of Tacomaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bestknown bands, will bring their acoustic sound to Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Books at 218 St. Helens Ave. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be music for people browsing for the newest Kate Atkinson novel, or perhaps a copy of Ken Millerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Langata Rules: Pirates at Lat 10.â&#x20AC;? By 4 p.m. Apartment Lights will be aptly matched with Millesime Designs at 743 Broadway. Q Dot will emcee at 5 p.m. at hipster Feather & Oar at 759 Market St. He will have to work it to keep Chloe, the new store puppy, from stealing all the attention. Powers thinks the music will bring customers to the stores. It would bring him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Incentivized programming works for me,â&#x20AC;? he said. And incentives will help change old mall habits by introducing people to attractive, homemade, home-run alternatives in a fun and spunky downtown. Powers is pretty sure the people who come for the music will stay for the food then meander to more shops to put their money into the local economy. With this event, your buck stops here and stays here. Speaking of bucks, the Black Friday event cost organizers just under $100, the amount Embellish Salon owner Patricia Lecy-Davis spent on the posters. All the musicians and Powers are volunteering their time and talents. And, Powers added, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be back downtown the next day for Small Business Saturday. The new Tacoma shopping scene is too big to fit into one day of fun.

Evening of Keys






octor Who will celebrate its 50th anniversary of adventures through time and space Nov. 23 with “The Day of the Doctor” on BBC America – and at 3-D theater events and a festival at Seattle’s EMP. It will be an intergalactic mash-up of Daleks, Companions, the Tardis, fezzes, Captain Jack, Weeping Angels and Sonic Screwdrivers, plus the impossible appearance of three doctors at the same time. And everybody lives. If you understood any of the above paragraph, you’re a Whovian, and we have a treat for you on this page and on our website at Tacoma Weekly’s owl-eyed journalists spotted the Tardis at Metro Parks Tacoma’s Ferry Park. It’s disguised as an informational kiosk, and it’s black instead of police box-blue. But it got us digging into the history of the park, Tacoma’s first, donated by Col. Clinton P. Ferry. Ferry and his too-lovely wife Evelyn. Ferry, the grandson of one of Napoleon’s soldiers, was born in Indiana and moved west for adventure. He found it as a telegrapher, trader, aide to the territorial governor, lumber mill worker, broker and the land speculator who spurred development of Tacoma. He dubbed himself “The Duke of Tacoma” and made no secret of his vast earnings. He was a jealous man married to a beautiful woman, the former Evelyn Trafton. Together, they also donated Tacoma’s first international love scandal. He represented Tacoma at the Paris Exposition of 1889, and brought his lovely wife with him.


HUZZAH! Tacoma Whovians cheer Col. Clinton P. Ferry for donating the city’s first park. While he attended to his mission, she was attended to by the suave and handsome Henri LeClerc. Col. Ferry suspected them of having an affair and attempted to have the two arrested and his wife sent to a prison for disgraced women. The charges did not stick, but the ensuing divorce did. On top of that, their story has been passed down incorrectly, starring a mysterious woman named Cynthia. It’s all a mystery, a ripping tale begging for the space-time intrusions of The Doctor. So we combined that historic tale with a pop-culture story, and invited Tacoma’s Whovians to star in it.

Metro Parks Tacoma declined to let us illustrate this story at Ferry Park unless we formed a movie company and bought an insurance policy, but Bellarmine Preparatory School graciously allowed us to shoot the first scene on its campus. The Knights of Pythias invited us to their Temple for the interiors. Everyone had a grand time. As The Eleventh Doctor might say: “Newspapers are cool.” Yes. Newspapers are cool. Allons-y! To see this as a silent video, visit

FERRY PARK, TACOMA, MAY 14, 1883 Colonel Ferry! Colonel Ferry!

Ferry? Ferry? Why does the Tardis say Ferry? It should say Police Box.

Yeah? Well I’m the Lord of Time. If the Titanic were already built, it would be a metaphor for this marriage.

I am The Doctor.

Beautiful cities have boulevards and parks, and I own this division of what will be a beautiful city. That is why I and my wife, Evelyn, are proud to set this land aside as Tacoma’s first park.

I prefer the term ‘Duke.’ I am The Duke of Tacoma.

I am pleased to hear that. Our city is in need of doctors, and soon will need more of them as the railroads expand.

I am at your service, any time, any space.

Unhand her, presumptuous fellow!

Should we divert the voyage?

Fezzes are cool! Allons-y!

And miss the passion? The gendarmes? The nosebiting? And the statues? What this town needs is more semi-clad maidens. And lions. Lots of lions. And fraternal orders, Masons, Odd Fellows, and temples with knights. Knights of Pythias—

Fezzes are not cool.

KEY PLAYERS. Flying in from Iowa, Maurice the Fish Records affiliate artist Krista Haugland (left) will headline “Evening of Keys” with seriously talented keyboardist and showman Brooke Lizotte. By Matt Nagle


hose looking to get out of the house and have some postThanksgiving fun this year have a much better option than the malls on Black Friday. At 8 p.m. Nov. 29 at Louie G’s in Fife, the curtain goes up for “Evening of Keys,” and all-ages night dedicated to the almighty keyboard featuring nine of our area’s most accomplished performers, and some surprise special guests. Rock, blues, pop, jazz and more genres will be showcased, representing styles as varied as the performer line-up, which consists of more keyboardists than ever for this, the ninth show in the series. Headlining will be keyboard god Brooke Lizotte and jazz singer/pianist Krista Haugland, who’s flying in from Iowa to play this show. Maurice the Fish Records CEO and keyboard player/singer Raymond Hayden (Nolan Garrett Band, MonHAYDEN sters in the Dark) has been the producer of “Evening of Keys” since it first started back in the days of the Mandolin Café. He consistently brings in

new talent to keep the show fresh, built upon a core group of four players, including himself, that returns each time. “I want to make each one a little different than last one,” Hayden said. “I do this in two ways: keep the core players that started it – Anthony Ciarochi, Doug Skoog, Mark Bittler and me – and to also bring new blood to the table.” Hayden is working to build up the whole presentation of this one-of-a-kind event, which this year will include a detailed printed program for the audience and a camera strategically placed so that the audience can see the player’s hands as they play. This is also the first time “Evening of Keys” will be held on a weekend. One thing that hasn’t changed, though, is the admission price - $10 for nine topnotch performers. “That’s like $1.10 a performer,” Hayden said. “I want to put on a show and give people a real bang for their buck. Every single one of the payers on this bill is known in the music industry. Every one of us is out there doing it…” Lizotte comes from a long history of international touring, major film and television work, and working with some of music’s top names, like Jennifer Hudson and Leona Lewis, Randy Meissner (The Eagles), Bob Marley and the Wailers, The

Ohio Players, Bootsy Collins, Lou Reed, Nick Lowe, The Tubes and many more. Local music fans are loving his Monday nights at Stonegate Pizza with rock and blues guitar phenom Rafael Tranquilino. “I was tickled when Ray (Hayden) asked me to headline this next ‘Evening of Keys,’” Lizotte said. “Everyone in the lineup are really great players – not a bad apple in the group.” As far as what Lizotte plans to play that night, he’s got something special in mind. “This time around I’m working on a bunch of new material so I’ll use it as a sounding board for my new stuff. I’m excited about that.” Joining headliners Lizotte and Haugland for “Evening of Keys” will be: Doug Skoog (Blues Redemption) – Skoog received perhaps the biggest compliment ever when the legSKOOG endary Chuck Berry stopped his show to feature Skoog on keys and said of him, “This player is from my alma mater!” His soulful, funky playing is as technically challenging as it delightful to hear, earning him numerous blues nomi-

nations and awards from the Washington Blues Society including Best Piano Keys, Best Male Vocalist, Best Blues Album, Best Blues Band and Best New Blues Band. Jonathon Sindelman – This northwestbased musician and composer is among the region’s most sought-after keyboardists in contemporary music. He has studied under and worked with Philip Glass, Krzysztof Penderecki and George Crumb. He currently works with the Seattle-based White (Alan White of Yes, John Lennon, Plastic Ono Band), six-string electric violinist Geoffrey Castle and Rising (internationally acclaimed tribute to Ronnie James Dio), among others. Mark Bittler (Bump Kitchen) – Soul and funk are Bittler’s calling cards. When most radio stations were playing “Disco Duck,” this composer, musician, on-air talent and producer was on the air at KNPT radio in Newport, Ore., playing Bootsy Collins. Gabe McPherson (Solo, Doxology) – In a professional entertainment career spanning over 18 years, McPherson has worked on almost every major stage in the U.S. either as an actor, musician, singer, director, designer, comMCPHERSON poser or producer. He is a member of the band Doxology and has shared the stage with artists including The B-52s, Wyclef Jean, Hoobastank, 311, Garbage, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Blake Lewis and Snoop Dog. Anthony Ciarochi (TinMan, Aury Moore Band, Stoneage Thriller) – In addition to having been a featured songwriter for, Ciarochi has performed with current and former members of Yes, Heart, Bad Company, Blue Cheer, Nicolette Larson, The Dan Reed Network, The Harry James Orchestra, Jimmie Rodgers, Moby Grape, The Grassroots, Bighorn, and others. His own original music project, StoneAge Thriller (, specializes in Beatlesque power pop with a classic early-70s feel. Lee Gregory (Strangely Alright) – In addition to being keyboardist for power pop band Strangely Alright, Gregory is also a studio owner where he crafts electronic music, a taste of which you’ll hear at “Evening of Keys.” GREGORY

Joe Rosati brings his elegant, introspective music to the Spar



By Ernest A. Jasmin

NEW TUNES. Joe Rosati will headline the Spar with songs from

his latest CD â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Candelabra Light,â&#x20AC;? which can be found on iTunes, and elsewhere.


eattle comedian Morgan Preston will bring his Biggest Tour Ever Ever to Tacomaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s North Point Bar & Grill on Tuesday, Nov. 26. Normally, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d just head south on I-5, but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taking a fairly roundabout route as he guns for a Guinness World Record. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a record he kind of holds already. But, technically, he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. It gets confusing. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll let him explain. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will be the very first people ever to do a comedy show in all 50 U.S. states,â&#x20AC;? he said, calling from the road. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The record exists under music, and there have been quite a few people who have done â&#x20AC;Ś a concert in all 50 U.S. states. So I sent in the application and everything, and they approved it. We went out and did 50 shows, 50 states, in 50 days. But I asked them a question or something during that time period and they said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oh, we messed up. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a comedian. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no category for that.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? What made this news even more frustrating was that Preston and his crew may have actually risked death in pursuit of the record last year. Hurricane Sandy was bearing down on the East Coast as they headed toward their gig in Cambridge, Md. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was where the eye of the storm came over,â&#x20AC;? Preston recalled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought it was our out. Once youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re 10 shows in, you realize that you have 40 more shows to do. And youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;My god, the United States is really large.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize how large until youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in the middle of it doing this. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So I thought it was going to be our out. Nobody is gonna call (B.S.) if you had to quit because of a hurricane. And then the place where we were headed was like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Well, we got generators. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just do it.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; So we did it. We just drove into it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We kind of lucked out because we had some inside information. People were texting us, telling us when bridges were gonna close and what was gonna happen. We followed the National Guard, which were basically the only people out. (Stuff) was flying around. We went in and did a show as stuff was flying by the window, and we had a great show. There were actually people there.â&#x20AC;? Undaunted, Preston and his tour mates are back at it. The Biggest Tour Ever Ever will also feature Andrew Ouellette, Billy Anderson and Keith Walker with the laughs staring at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10 in advance, and are available online at For further details, call (253) 927-7767 or visit

oe Rosati is no stranger to the local arts scene, having been the principal actor in two independent films shot in Tacoma â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Limboâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Perfect Lifeâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and the owner of the Shoboat, a short-lived music venue that rocked Ruston a dozen years ago. But now the Park City, Utah resident has returned to his hometown wearing a different creative hat, that of seasoned singer-songwriter. Rosati will headline the Spar Tavern on Nov. 27 with songs from his elegant and introspective new CD, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Candelabra Light,â&#x20AC;? a disc that was, in many ways, two decades in the making. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of the songs are older and done in a new way,â&#x20AC;? said Rosati, 42, tracing some of the new material back to Isaac Purrs, his band from 1991 to 1994. Purrs started to fall apart after Rosati went off to Western Washington University, a situation that came to a head when the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lead singer quit the day before a scheduled recording session. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I went ahead with the bass player and the drummer. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really sing, and we just recorded the music,â&#x20AC;? Rosati recalled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I kind of sat on that music for about a year, between â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;94 and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;95, not really knowing what to do and started writing my own lyrics.â&#x20AC;? Some songs resurfaced on a solo CD that Rosati put out in 1997. But, for the most part, his focus strayed from writing music until â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Perfect Life,â&#x20AC;? an independent movie that was written and directed by Tacoma filmmaker Chad Ruin and released in 2011. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Chad had written â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;A Perfect Lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; primarily listening to the Cureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s album, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Bloodflowers,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Rosati recalled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And I thought, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We need music for this. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a big fan of the Cure and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of my style.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Rosati stars as a homeless man musing about the idyllic life heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s squandered. In one scene he starts singing an early version of â&#x20AC;&#x153;At Ten,â&#x20AC;? one of the cuts from the new â&#x20AC;&#x153;Candelabraâ&#x20AC;? CD. The filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s score went on to win a gold medal at the Park City Film Festival in 2012. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Winning that makes you feel good,â&#x20AC;? Rosati said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You start thinking what else could I do?â&#x20AC;? Perhaps a bigger boost to the singerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s confidence was working with Tacoma singer-songwriter Ben Fuller, the

frontman for local rock outfit China Davis. Rosati moved to Utah in 2010, but whenever he was in town the two would jam in his momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dining room; a chandelier hanging there inspired his new albumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s title. The duo was recording some cover songs Rosati intended to shop around to get gigs when Fuller suggested his friend dust off some of his old originals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That first little session we probably ended up with eight songs,â&#x20AC;? Fuller recalled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Joe, you really have something here,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and I really started getting him excited about doing a good, serious project.â&#x20AC;? Fuller produced â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Candelabra Lightâ&#x20AC;? with an emphasis on minimal, acoustic arrangements that allowed Rosatiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s poignant lyrics to shine through. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My philosophy is when people write songs that are really personal you should try to strip them down as much as you can so that people can get that,â&#x20AC;? Fuller said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really blown away by the subject matter that Joe writes about,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really a fan of that kind of stuff, where people really dig deep into what life is. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably the main reason that I was drawn to working with him on something.â&#x20AC;? Many of the lyrics are inspired by Rosatiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s creative struggles: going bankrupt with the Shoboat, struggling to be recognized in the competitive world of film. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of the people we see who have success, we assume they had success in their 20s,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Rosati said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You hit your 30s and early 40s and you just start going, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oh, my life didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work out that way. But Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not going to give up.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; So thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of where the theme of the music came from, maybe to inspire hope for people who are a little older to still go for whatever it is that makes them tick.â&#x20AC;?

FRIDAY, NOV. 22 JAZZBONES: Nick Moss Band (blues) 8 p.m., $10


OLD SCHOOL. ‘90s noise-rock band Swelter featured Dave Takata, Chad

Baker, Micah Hembree, Stu Linkert, Sean Lanksbury and Jason Dietrich. The band will headline a 15-year reunion show at the New Frontier Lounge on Nov. 22. By Ernest A. Jasmin


f you followed local punk in the ‘90s, chances are you remember Swelter. The band formed in Puyallup in 1989, as Swelter Cacklebush, shortened its name and went on to become one of the South Sound’s most popular altrock acts. The group disbanded 15 years ago, but its imprint is still quite visible on the local hard rock scene: Mahnhammer, the F---ing Eagles, CFA, Argonaut and Mico de Noche are among popular bands that can trace their lineage directly back to Swelter. “Mahnhammer is pretty darn close to what Swelter was towards the end – just kind of brutal,” recalled Micah Hembree, lead screamer for both groups. Laughing, he added, “The only difference now is that we know how to play our instruments.” Swelter’s refined musicianship will be on display, at eardrum-shredding decibels, during a Nov. 22 reunion show at Tacoma’s New Frontier Lounge. “We’re not planning on doing anything else after this,” Hembree said. “This is a one-time deal. You’ve gotta be there, or it’s done forever.” Swelter Cacklebush started with four friends from South Hill: Hembree, drummer Stuart Linkert, guitarist Jason Harsin and bassist Chad Baker. Hembree described the band’s original sound as being closer to power-pop; but the aesthetic veered in a more foreboding direction after Harsin left the band and guitarists Jason Deitrich and Dave Takata joined up. “We would set up house parties, play in barns and do all this great stuff,” Hembree said. “And we just started getting heavier and heavier and heavier. At the time, we were too metal for the punk-rock kids and too punk rock for the metal kids. It was

an oddity, because people still liked us.” Swelter’s sound is captured on two albums: a selftitled debut disc that was initially released in 1996 by local punk imprint Big Enormous Records, and an unnamed sophomore album that almost didn’t see the light of day. Relationships soured before the second disc could be released, but both albums live on thanks to Bandcamp. You can find them at “It was the beginning of the end,” Hembree said, recalling recording sessions for the second album. “Just like with any marriage, it’s bound to happen. You get in a fight, and sometimes it’s done. We had been friends since high school, and we had spent enough time together at that moment in time.” But old wounds healed over the years, and the

notion that Swelter needed to play a reunion show became something of a running joke. Then a friend of the band, promoter Brian Skiffington, finally talked them into the New Frontier gig. “It’s a true test of age and humility,” Hembree said. “I didn’t think some of these people could be in the same room together any more.” Providing support for Swelter on Friday night will be Bali Girls and Negative Press. Music starts after 9 p.m., and the cover charge is $5; (253) 572-4020 or visit www. thenewfrontierlounge. com for further details.

TREE LIGHTING FESTIVITIES/SING-A-LONG Ever want to know what it’s like to be a T-bird or a Pink Lady, but never quite felt cool enough to pull it off? Well, now is your chance to don those poodle skirts, grease back those pompadours, and let your inhibitions go for an afternoon where you are the star! And remember – “grease” is the word. From the producers of the smash hit “Singa-long-a Sound of Music,” this fully interactive screening of the favorite film “Grease” is “the one that you want!” The show host will lead a vocal warm up, judge a costume competition and show you how to use your free goody bag. Then it’s up to you – sit back and sing along with John Travolta, Olivia NewtonJohn and the gang! It couldn’t be easier... or more fun! Dressing up is strongly encouraged and full audience participation essential. Immediately following the ticketed film, join the festivities for the 68th Annual Holiday Tree Lighting, which begins at 5:30 p.m. in the Pantages Lobby. Kick off the holidays by gathering for carols and photos with Santa! The Tree Lighting is a free community event, open to the public.

BULLETIN BOARD TACOMA IS FOR LOVERS Tacoma Is For Lovers and King’s Books presents a special two-day Artist Craft Fair with different artists each day.

The festivities take place Nov. 23-24 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. ‘THE SANTALAND DIARIES’ Tacoma Little Theatre in partnership with The Changing Scene Theatre Northwest, the Kitsap peninsula’s only fringe theater, presents David Sedaris’ irreverent holiday one-man show “The Santaland Diaries,” about a starving actor in New York City who reluctantly takes a job as an elf at Macy’s department store. In what The New York Times calls “a delightfully thorny account of working as a Yuletide elf at Macy’s,” the story follows our hero, Crumpet, through a maze of terrified children, outlandish holiday shoppers, and drunken Santas. This production features Charlie Birdsell as Crumpet, and is directed by Pavlina Morris. For mature elves ages 14+ due to strong language and content. Two performances only: Dec. 12 and 15 at 7:30 p.m. All tickets are $12 and may be purchased online at www.tacomalittletheatre. com, or by calling the Box Office at (253) 272-2281. ‘IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE’ Tacoma Little Theatre warms up the holiday season with its stage adaptation of Frank Capra’s classic film “It’s a Wonderful Life” by Anthony Palermo. The saga of George Bailey, the Everyman from the small town of Bedford Falls whose dreams of escape and adventure have been quashed by family obligation and civic duty. George’s guardian angel must descend on Christmas Eve to save him from despair and to remind him, by showing him what the world would have been like had he never been born, that his has been, after

all, a wonderful life. This production is directed by Maria Valenzuela and includes a cast of 25 local actors including Dan Lysne (George Bailey), Kirsten Deane (Mary Bailey), Gary Spees (Clarence) and Tom Birkeland (Mr. Potter). “It’s a Wonderful Life” will run Friday, Nov. 29 until Sunday, Dec. 22. Friday and Saturday showings are at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. This show is recommended for all ages. Tickets: $15-$22, available at ‘DRIVING MISS DAISY’ After demolishing her brand new car, Daisy Werthen, a rich, sharp-tongued Jewish widow from Atlanta, reluctantly surrenders the driver’s seat to Hoke Coleburn, a proud, soft-spoken black man. At first, Hoke’s presence in her life is met with disdain. But over the course of 25 years, Hoke becomes not only her chauffeur, but against all odds, her best friend. The place is the Deep South, the time 1948, just prior to the civil rights movement. “Driving Miss Daisy” tells the tale of an unlikely friendship between two persons who come to realize they have more in common than they ever believed possible - and that times and circumstances would ever allow them to publicly admit. The production runs Nov. 8-23 at The Dukesbay Theater, located inside the historic Merlino Art Center at 508 S. 6th Ave. All tickets are $15, and include coffee and an assortment of baked goods. The show runs Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., Sundays at 2 p.m., and Thurs., Nov. 21 at 7:30 p.m. Info: IRISH CYLINDERS BY DALE CHIHULY Created almost 40 years ago, the legendary “Irish Cylinders” by Dale Chihuly are now on exhibition at Museum of Glass. Among the earliest series of Chihuly’s oeuvre are the little-known, legendary Irish Cylinders, created in 1975 at the Rhode Island School of Design, begun on St. Patrick’s Day and completed over Thanksgiving weekend. The 44 vessels, loosely categorized as St. Patrick’s Day Cylinders, Irish Cylinders and the Ulysses Cylinders, which were inspired by James Joyce’s masterpiece “Ulysses.” Minty and milky, the Irish Cylinders feature glassdrawing pick-up techniques similar to Chihuly’s more abstract Blanket Cylinders. The series was briefly exhibited at the Benson Gallery in Bridehampton, NY in the summer of 1976, but then placed in storage. The

complete series of Irish Cylinders has been previously exhibited at the Portland Art Museum in 1997. The Stromple Collection now numbers more than five hundred objects and is the largest single holding of Chihuly’s work. The Museum of Glass is located at 1801 Dock St. Info: www. ‘DAVID DOUGLAS: A NATURALIST AT WORK’ Discover the history and intrigue of nature in the Northwest.

Danny just wants to be noticed. He adores affection, wants to play, and is potty trained. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d make an excellent hiking buddy, as heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got the energy for it. Help this young boy find the Forever Family heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been waiting for!

Pell â&#x20AC;&#x153;Flameâ&#x20AC;? This weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Featured Pet is one hot commodity. Properly named â&#x20AC;&#x153;Flameâ&#x20AC;?, this gorgeous 6 year old Flame Point will bring warmth and happiness to your home during these blustery Washington days. He would love to curl up on your lap while you read a book or chase a toy if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re up for playtime! Flame came to our shelter because his owners moved away, he is patiently waiting for his new forever family to take him home. This handsome feline has been a bit nervous since heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been at the shelter, but he comes around quickly once you give him a gentle touch. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss out on your chance to make this wonderful kitty the newest member of your family. Reference #A480752
