ederal budget cuts kept the Blue Angels from appearing at Seattle’s Seafair last weekend. But rest assured: There will be planes roaring across the sky at Freedom Fair this Fourth of July. They just may not rattle as many windowpanes as they did last year. “The air show itself is still going to be a spectacular show. The one thing that’s going to be missing is the military support – the big, thunderous jets that they usually bring,” said Gary Grape, director of events for Tacoma Events Commission, the mostly volunteer group that runs Freedom Fair. Tacoma’s big Independence Day celebration is expected to draw more than 100,000 revelers to Tacoma’s Ruston Way Waterfront on July 4 for the air show, music, food, libations and, of
course, fireworks. “We’re one of the few areas that still has an air show and a fireworks display of this magnitude,” said Lori Linenko, who took over as the commission’s chairwoman and president after longtime director Doug Miller stepped down last fall. Government cutbacks and sagging donations have presented challenges for many summer festivals. But organizers say Freedom Fair has bounced back, if only slightly, after an uncertain 2012. Freedom Fair costs about $900,000 to produce each year, according to Grape. Toward that end, Tacoma Events Commission – a non-profit 501(c)3 hired by City of Tacoma to run the event – receives lots of “in kind donations,” pledges of free advertising and services provided by Tacoma Police, Tacoma Public Works and other agenX See FREEDOM / page A12

Tacoma artist Lynn Di Nino is leading the charge in a community art project for the City of Lakewood’s first-ever event Sept. 15 to welcome troops home from Afghanistan. The goal – for people across the South Sound, or anywhere for that matter, to help make approximately 4,000 (or more) yellow flowers to decorate an arch for the front of the main stage. To get the project going, Di Nino has held four public workshops to demonstrate how to make the flowers. “The workshops are mostly to show people how to do it so they can go back and show their own groups,” Di Nino said. (Also, this YouTube video explains the very easy process: http://www.youtube.com/ watch?v=aK6QBG6IhX0.) She is looking for individuals, families and members of organizations who can enlist others to help. Di Nino’s next flower making workshop will be held on July 22 from 6-9 p.m. For location, e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (253) 396 -0774.

POTHOLE OF THE WEEK
6th and Skyline Tacoma has a tremendous pothole problem, and the city knows it. During the past couple of years, the city has acknowledged this issue by spending millions of dollars in major arterial repairs with the council’s “pothole initiative.” And in 2010, routine maintenance by Tacoma’s Grounds and Maintenance Division completed street repairs on 229,638 square feet of road. In 2011, the city repaired about 150,000 more square feet of road riddled with holiness, and continued those efforts in 2012. And while that may sound like a lot of ground, new holes pop up – or return – each and every day, which means a pothole-free road might never exist in Tacoma. With the help of our readers and our dedicated Pothole Pig, we will continue to showcase some of the city’s biggest and best potholes through our weekly homage to one of T-Town’s most unnerving attributes. Help the Pothole Pig by e-mailing your worst pothole suggestions to SaveOurStreets@tacomaweekly.com. Potholes in need of repair can be reported to the City of Tacoma by calling (253) 591-5495.

The 1930 Lincoln Brougham, designed by the Brunn and Co. of Buffalo, N.Y., had everything a passenger of the “chauffeured class” of the post-Gilded Age could possibly ask for when it came to an all-around vehicle. Brunn called the car an All Weather Brougham because of the configuration of the two retractable tops that allowed the passengers to be in the sun while the driver could remain in the shade. The passenger compartment’s roof could even be folded back while a mixed middle section remained in place if the forward-seated passengers wanted to see the sky while the rearseated passengers in the “jump seats” remained under the cover. The car’s design also shows the evolution of the Lincoln Motor Co., which was founded in 1917 by Henry Leland to produce Liberty engines during World War I. Leland founded Cadillac and sold the company to General Motors in 1909. After the war

was over, he decided to re-enter the luxury car market with a new car, the Lincoln. His first production model, the Model L, was produced from 1921 to 1930. It was a V-8 machine that overpowered the Cadillac. Costing up to $6,600 each, it was also a car reserved specifically for the well to do, although sales were disappointing because it lacked the fashionable stylings other car makers were offering. Leland sold the line to car giant
Henry Ford in 1922, which marked a turning point of the now iconic line. Lincoln was refined through the styling ideas of Edsel Ford, who crafted an elegant look that would soon make Lincoln one of the premier motor cars in the world. The 1930 model is seen as the top of that peak during the golden age of car making. The Lincoln Brougham town car offered a 90 horsepower, V-8 engine that was controlled through a three-speed transmission.

somewhere over Tacoma.
By Kathleen Merryman firstname.lastname@example.org
We stumped you with our first Tacoma Quirk contest, which proves three things: You probably don’t drink enough. You don’t visit us enough. (But if you did, we’d give you lettuce.) Our question was too tough, and that nice Steve Dunkelberger obscured too much of the object by hugging it. So we’re taking it easy on you this week, at least with the object. If you come from the right part of town, you’ll recognize it. But how much do you know about it? Where is the Motorcycle on a Stick? Wrench. What does that have to do with anything? What’s the nearest park? The nearest bar? What do they have to do with the Motorcycle on a Stick? What’s keeping that mini-chopper in the air? What does F.R.O.M. mean? What’s the significance of the base of the nearby granite structure? The person who e-mails kathleen@tacomaweekly. com first with the correct answers will win two Rainiers tickets, a box of sidewalk chalk and a locator map for Frost Park.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR A GREENER TACOMA
Got a passion for great recycling? The City of Tacoma needs volunteers willing to share how to go green by helping attendees properly sort recyclables at this yearâ€™s Fourth of July Freedom Fair. Last year, Freedom Fair-goers generated 60,000 gallons of trash that was sent to the landfill. This year, City staff want to reduce that number. Volunteer teams will staff two recycling stations near food vendors to educate and remind fair-goers about how to properly recycle their cans and bottles. As a thank you, the City will provide volunteers who work a two-hour shift with a food voucher redeemable at several food booths. Volunteers must be 16 years of age. Volunteers may visit http://www.cityoftacoma.org/ cms/One.aspx?portalId=169&pageId=31267 to reserve a space. Other efforts to reduce trash at this yearâ€™s Freedom Fair include setting up temporary drinking fountains to reduce bottled water waste and composting pre-consumer vendor food scraps.
Acting on a tip, police went to an East Pierce County home early June 16 and arrested a couple for allowing their residence to be used for an after-graduation underage drinking party for their daughter. Upon obtaining a search warrant to search the property, officers found a keg in the garage that was strewn with beer cans, wine and hard liquor bottles. Police also discovered an unconscious 18-year-old male inside a tent next to a beer cooler in the back yard and immediately summoned Central Pierce Fire and Rescue. Once on site, first responders also evaluated the homeownerâ€™s daughter for alcohol poisoning when officers found her on her bed unresponsive amid pools of vomit. Thirty-two underage drinkers, primarily from Puyallup and Emerald Ridge high schools, were arrested for minor in possession along with an additional four youths in a vehicle parked outside the party. The driver of the car had a large amount of marijuana in his vehicle, which partygoers told police had been sold to some of the students earlier in the evening. Officers working the emphasis also arrested a motorcyclist who tested three times over the legal limit to drive. After years of Party Intervention Patrols in
Pierce County, â€œyouâ€™d think parents would rethink their â€˜donâ€™t ask, donâ€™t tell policyâ€™ when it comes to alcohol use, especially during prom and graduation season,â€? said Bob Thompson, sergeant with the Puyallup Police Department and law enforcement coordinator for the multiagency Party Intervention Patrol last weekend. Parent volunteers who met with the parents of the arrested youth when they came to pick up their children emphasized that parents can keep their kids safe by keeping close tabs on their nighttime activities and asking for the details of their alcohol-free plans, especially when the plans involve events on family property. The parents arrested told police their daughter said the party would be alcohol-free. Parents also have the option of reporting to police the addresses of houses where suspected juvenile parties take place throughout the year, with or without adults present. â€œSilence is never good when parents donâ€™t report the parties in their own neighborhoods. Our goal is to get kids home safe and to give them another day to make a better decision,â€? said Liz Yotty, a parent volunteer with Party Intervention Patrol.
TACOMA GOODWILL COMMITS TO WOMEN VETS
On June 21, Goodwill Industries International in Washington, D.C. committed on behalf of 165 agencies across the U.S. and Canada to help 3,000 women veterans find employment over the next year. Tacoma Goodwill and its 15-county area of operations stand on the front lines of this issue in Washington State. Operation: GoodJobs, Goodwillâ€™s partnership with the Walmart Foundation to serve veterans and their families with the tools they need to succeed in the workplace, will be Tacoma Goodwillâ€™s primary program to address these emerging needs. Tacoma Goodwill was one of three Goodwill agencies in the country selected in May 2012 to participate in a pilot program to empower military veterans with the tools they need to find employment, succeed in the workplace and permanently support their families. The other two Goodwill agencies are Houston and Austin, Texas. Funded by a $1 million grant from the Walmart Foundation, and administered by Goodwill Industries International, Operation: GoodJobs assists veterans with job training and placement, but also plans for each participantâ€™s continued success by designing individualized, holistic plans that encompass the needs of their entire families, helping ensure their long-term financial stability. Tacoma Goodwill hired Mike Tassin as Veteranâ€™s Career Navigator to head up the Operation: GoodJobs efforts here in the area. â€œI was a sergeant in the U.S. Army where I served for eight years with tours of duty in Korea, Iraq and numerous state side locations,â€? says Tassin. â€œI have been fortunate as a disabled veteran to experience a successful transition from military to civilian life. I am passionate to serve veterans and their families in achieving their post military goals.â€? Each participant in the Operation: GoodJobs program receives a complete career assessment and an individualized development plan that will
encompass a range of family needs, from basic needs like nutrition, shelter and child care, to specific job training identified in the assessment process. Veterans will be encouraged to include their spouses and other family members in the process so Goodwill can holistically support their personal and financial goals. To date the program has helped more than 300 transitioning veterans, of which 50 are women.
SOUTH TACOMA CELEBRATES JON KITNA DAY SATURDAY
Jon Kitna and the South Tacoma Grocery Outlet crew are teaming up Saturday to raise money for the Lincoln Abes Booster Club â€“ and to spread the fun. A former Seattle Seahawk, Kitna spent 16 years in the NFL. Instead of retiring, he returned to his alma mater, Lincoln High School, to teach math and coach football. That choice, and his familyâ€™s support of the booster club have earned him local hero status. â€œI got the opportunity to play on a world stage in the NFL. Now I want to be able to pass the torch on to these kids and see them have the same opportunity,â€? he said. â€œThere is so much power in a dream and having someone telling you to believe in yourself.â€? The message resonates with David and Jessalynn Greenblatt, the Grocery Outlet owners with a mission of community service. In addition to running food drives, sock drives and supporting community projects, theyâ€™re signing on as sponsors of the Lincoln Abes Booster Club. â€œWe are so honored to be working with the Kitna family for such an event for Tacoma and the kids in this community,â€? Jessalyn Greenblatt said after working with Jeni Kitna to plan Saturdayâ€™s celebration and fund-raiser. The fun will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. June 29 in the Grocery Outlet parking lot at South 56th Street and South Tacoma Way. Chris Caillier, the storeâ€™s Chief Fun Officer, promises live music, food, community vendors and appearances by local celebrities. In a neighborhood fueled by civic activism, the roster is likely to include city officials ready to listen. Jon Kitna will be there from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., signing autographs, and having fan photos taken for a small donation. All those donations will benefit Lincoln Abes Booster Club.
HOUSING AUTHORITY GROUNDBREAKING FOR NEW HILLSIDE TERRACE
Demolition munchers are making short work of Tacoma Housing Authorityâ€™s old Hillside Terrace apartments. Good riddance. The buildings were badly designed and built, and the housing authority has been working for years to raise the money to replace them. THA has funding for the first phase of the redevelopment, which will add units, a community center and more open space to the site at 2520 South G Street. Tuesday, it will celebrate the end of demolition and the beginning of construction with a groundbreaking ceremony from noon to 1 p.m. Everyone is welcome to attend, and learn more about Phase One of the two-phase project.

Police seek the publicâ€™s help to identify a man who robbed a bank on June 24. The suspect entered the U.S. Bank branch in the 800 block of South 38th Street at about 10:45 a.m. He handed a note to a teller demanding money and said he had a gun. He was given cash and ran out of the bank. He is described as a black male in his 20s, between 5-foot-6 and 5-foot-8 inches tall, with a thin build and short, black hair. He wore dark blue jeans, a black North Face jacket, a black Chicago Bulls cap and black gloves.

Stephanie Butow began dreaming up a workplace garden 20 years ago. Three years ago, she began work on the Kapowsin Elementary School PTA Giving Garden and Fruit Forest. Last week Tacoma Garden Club honored her with its first Green Visionary Award. â€œOne of the core values of our Tacoma Garden Club is to be supportive of cutting-edge gardening ideas in our community,â€? club member Sue Stibbe told Butow at the clubâ€™s annual meeting. â€œWe wish to recognize outstanding individuals who are working to do something unique and creative to enhance gardening and the care of the environment in our community.â€? Butow, who lives in Seattle, has for 20 years been a social worker at Kapowsin Elementary School in Graham, and she admits the garden has a tinge of self-interest. â€œI live in a city where land is scarce, and I work in the country, where thereâ€™s lots of land,â€? Butow said. So there was garden dreaming, lots of it, on her commute. â€œMy dream was to encircle the school perimeter with espaliered fruit trees,â€? she said. â€œAsian pears, pears, plums, apples, frost peaches, golden and red raspberries, tons of strawberries, lots of vegetables and herbs and many different kinds of flowers.â€? Sheâ€™s specific because those pickable trees are all planted now, and the bushes, and the veggies in raised beds. â€œAbout three years ago, a former PTA president, Alexis Derry, told me about a Washington State Potato Commission garden grant three days before the deadline,â€? she said. â€œI went to the kids, and in three days, they pumped out potato artwork and poems and put them in a scrap book.â€?

Butow said. â€œWelchâ€™s Grape Juice for $200, Home Depot for $1,000, Loweâ€™s Toolbox for Education for $4,000. Many individuals have donated money, plants, tomato cages, used rain barrels. I take anything. Wood chips, horse manure.â€? That includes advice from Master Gardeners, and support from school principal Machelle Beilke, staff and PTA members. Itâ€™s paid off from the classroom to the lunchroom to the office where children go for help with their personal troubles. Stibbe complimented team garden treasure hunts and vocabulary building exercises. She said the students write a Garden Gazette, composed a theme song, â€œWeâ€™re Out in the Garden,â€? and are experimenting at home with alternative garden containers and styles. Students know their garden is a privilege, Butow said. â€œTheir school work must be done. They have to earn it.â€? Stibbe noted two programs, â€œSeeds of Toleranceâ€? and â€œCooperation Soup.â€? â€œStudents learn seeds come in many sizes, shapes and colors, and

they have different habits â€“ just like people. Like seeds, even though we have so many differences, we all produce something wonderful,â€? she said. â€œWhen it comes to the soup, kids learn to cooperate, and the final activity or reward is to make cooperation soup from the garden veggies and serve it to their classmates. The lessons feature cooperating as gardeners and cooks, and also how the weather and other aspects of nature cooperate in helping us grow food.â€? They also follow food past the lunch table. â€œWeâ€™ve done lessons on composting and worm bins and built four worm bins,â€? Butow said. â€œWe did a waste audit, sorting through the garden to determine how much could be recycled and composted.â€? The kids love it, she said. â€œThey say â€˜This is funner than recess.â€™ They donâ€™t have to compete. In the garden, itâ€™s just between them and the plants. Iâ€™ve heard several times kids when they are sad or angry say, â€˜I feel better now.â€™ Iâ€™ve had kids who are furious, and they are able to do that physical labor and get distracted. Iâ€™ve had kids sobbing. This one little girl just started singing.â€? Thereâ€™s one more thing this garden does for the students who tend it: It feeds them. â€œThe food goes to local students in need during the year, and we supplement holiday baskets with it,â€? Butow said. â€œI also push the cart out when the buses come, and, oh my gosh, they mob it,â€? she said. â€œEven the chives.â€? Hereâ€™s your weekly gardening tip, compliments of Travis Valbert of Gardensphere: Earlier in the season tomatoes are prone to blight, a fungal condition causing blackening of the leaves, be sure to water your tomatoes at the base of the plant and not the leaves!

No matter how large or small a business is these days, it canâ€™t exist long without access to the Internet, whether itâ€™s emailed orders or online-traffic watching. Having â€œtechnological issuesâ€? can cost big dollars in lost sales and lost productivity. â€œIf you engage in activity using software, network or the Internet, you have your business at risk,â€? said IntuPlex Manager Ryan Hallock. â€œYou may be compromised by hackers, domestic or global, that threaten your security, or you may be surpassed in your core business by competitors, if you or your staff focus on IT instead of the business, or you may miss perfect opportunities due to outdated IT software, hardware or network. IntuPlex can help with these issues and more.â€? The Tacoma-based technology firm was founded by experienced â€œtechiesâ€? with the idea that they would handle the technology so businesses could focus on building their companyâ€™s operations. They provide a comprehensive suite of services that include communication and technology support, data backup and cloud computing that is backed by a reliable, local service team available around the clock. But on top of providing the support for todayâ€™s business essentials, the firm also works to find affordable solutions that nontechies might not know exist. â€œCore to our approach is rigid cost control, cost predictability and cost efficiency,â€? according to the companyâ€™s mission statement. â€œWe believe IT resources should contribute to your companyâ€™s success, not be a drain.â€? True to that pledge, IntuPlex has a tiered pricing model to fit any business budget. Clients pay for what they use, and nothing more with an Ă la carte roster of options. The firmâ€™s managed services come at fixed costs that provide on-going preventive maintenance to minimize those â€œsurprise outagesâ€? and helps businesses to budget for technology costs that include upgrades and replacements of equipment when the end of its life-cycle nears. IntuPlex has a staff of Microsoft-certified support specialists who manage business systems 24/7 so business owners and managers can focus on whatâ€™s really important, the business. IntuPlex can manage email, computer networks, hosted phone systems, servers and secure cloud synchronization of mobile devices and tablets. â€œWe specialize in small office suites for core business functions and many specialized applications used by various small businesses,â€? Hallock said. â€œThe hardware is just a tool, and we use all tools that are available if they meet the mission of the business and within the budget. New hardware is fun and full of features, but may have features not needed for your business.â€? To learn more, visit www.intuplex.com, e-mail info@ intuplex.com or call (253) 303-3829.

ISAIAH THOMAS RETURNS HOME TO LEAD YOUTH SKILLS ACADEMY Former Husky guard active in instruction, encouragement
RAINIERS BATS EXPLODE EARLY TO ROLL PAST FRESNO

rad Miller has been hitting everything in sight lately, and his teammates followed suit early on June 24 as the Tacoma Rainiers scored 10 runs in the first four innings and banged out 15 hits in cruising to a 14-4 win over the Fresno Grizzlies. “When you score that many runs it’s a luxury,” said Rainiers manager John Stearns. “You’re able to kind of relax during the game. You don’t have many of these, but you enjoy having them.” Abraham Almonte and Miller led off the bottom of the first with backto-back doubles, Dustin Ackley had a run-scoring groundout and Carlos Peguero notched a sacrifice fly to center to quickly make it 2-0. Miller and Ackley then drew one-out walks to start a rally in the third, as Rich Poythress drew a bases-loaded walk to plate Miller, Nate Tenbrink followed with a bases-clearing double to left center and Brandon Bantz plated Tenbrink with a single to left to make it 7-0. “That was fun,” said Miller, whose double in the first extended his hitting streak to 20 games, currently the highest in the PCL. “Everybody was clicking. First hitter of the game, Abe ropes a double off the wall. It just kind of went from there.” Brandon Maurer, making his fifth start with the Rainiers after being demoted from Seattle, cruised through the first three innings, retiring nine straight batters after a leadoff walk in the top of the first. But he ran into some trouble in the fourth, as Brett Pill crushed a two-run homer to left and Carter Jurica later added

After stellar careers at both Curtis High School and the University of Washington, Isaiah Thomas decided two years ago to do something for the community and city that helped him reach the pinnacle of basketball. For the second straight year, Thomas held the Isaiah Thomas Youth Skills Academy, which ran from June 24-27 at the Henry T. Schatz Boys & Girls Club in University Place. “This is the second year of the camp, and I’d like to make sure that these kids get some topflight instruction for the three days that they are here,” said Thomas on June 25. Thomas has also added another former Washington Husky, Dave Hudson, to help run the camp. Hudson brings a wealth of collegiate playing experience from 1999-2003 to go along with another key ingredient: discipline. “You make the kids understand early that you must have their attention at all times to pick up all the things they are being taught, or else it’s five-pushup-time,” said Hudson. Ages of the campers ranged from 6 to 18 years old, and the always-gregarious Thomas liked to get in the middle of the drills and take a hands-on approach with the boys and girls. “They like all the encouragement they can get, and I give them a whole lot of it,” Thomas said. With his rise to the top of the basketball world, Thomas gives a whole lot of credit to a coach that was more than just a coach to him. “(University of Washington Head Coach Lorenzo) Romar was a great father figure to me also who made me a better person both on and off the court,” Thomas said. “I owe him a lot. “The three years I spent at the UW were the best three years of me life, surrounded by a lot of great friends and teammates. I would not trade them for anything.” With much media attention focused on Sacramento lately with the possible move to Seattle, Thomas decided to take another approach when looking at the California capital city. “The fans have been great to me, and it’s

Joining him again will be Curtis High head baseball coach Bryan Robinson, with featured appearances from Jon Kitna, Tacoma Rainiers catcher Brandon Bantz and Seattle Mariners coach Scott Budner. The camp is open to those ages 6 to 16, with a full-day option open to those ages 11 to 16 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day. There is a halfday option as well for those ages 11 to 16 from 9 a.m. to noon, while players ages 6 to 10 will train from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. “The afternoon option is going to be a lot more competitions, events, prizes,” Trolia said. “We’re going to grind the skills and drills in the morning. The afternoon is going to be the time to see it work out.” While this is the main camp during the summer for his organization AT Baseball, Trolia and his staff will continue to hold clinics and camps throughout the summer.

CHAMBERS WINS 400 (;1<50695(;065(3: Recently graduated Foss athlete Marcus Chambers won the 400meter dash at the U.S. Junior Outdoor Track & Field Championships on June 21-23 in Des Moines, Iowa to qualify for the 2013 Pan American Junior Championships. Chambers, who won the 400and 200-meter titles at the 3A state meet in late May, finished in a time of 46.55 seconds in the finals of the 400 on June 23 to edge Juan Paul Green of Illinois by nine hundredths of a second. “It was great experience racing against all the top guys of the country,” said Chambers, noting that a brutal wind at Drake Stadium – on the campus of Drake University – was a difficult challenge. “That last 110 meters was hard for all of us.

:6<5+,9:<: -(33;6=(5*6<=,9 Despite a pair of goals from forward Sean Okoli, the Sounders U-23s fell 4-2 at Vancouver on June 22 to drop to fourth in the PDL standings. The Whitecaps’ Bobby Jhutty tallied a hat trick, including his first strike in the 13th minute to give Vancouver a 1-0 lead. Okoli
tallied his first goal in the 24th minute on a diving header off a cross from Steve Mohn to equalize, but Jhutty answered in the 32nd minute with his second goal off a pass from Niall Cousens. Okoli again equalized in the 61st minute with his second goal, sending in a rebound after Blake Wise’s shot was deflected. But Jhutty drove in a penalty kick four minutes later, and Harry Lakhan added a goal off Jhutty’s corner in the 68th minute to put it away. The Sounders dropped to 4-4-1 in league play, sitting nine points behind first-place Victoria in the standings. They will take on the Washington Crossfire – whom they have already beaten twice this season – on June 30 at 6 p.m. at Redmond High School before travelling to take on the North Sound SeaWolves on July 4 at 4 p.m at Edmonds Woodway High School. The Sounders’ next, and final, home game will be against Victoria on July 7 at 2 p.m. at Sunset Chevy Stadium in Sumner.
:;<+:>05;/9,,6--6<9 With the summer season well underway, the Cheney Studs won three of four games at the Marysville GoldSox on June 20-23 to
improve to 17-7 on the year. The Studs won 5-3 in the weekend opener on June 20, as University of Puget Sound grad Taylor Thompson picked up the win in pitching one and two-thirds innings of scoreless relief. Second baseman Jared Van Hoon was 2-for-4 with two runs batted in for the Studs. The GoldSox picked up a 6-5 walk-off win on June 21, despite being outhit by the Studs 12-5. Left fielder Kyle Boe was 2-for-4 with a triple and three runs batted in for the Studs, and catcher Kyle Sutherland was 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI. The Studs responded with an 8-3 win on June 22, as they scored five runs in the sixth inning to put the game away. Starter Ross Humes picked up the win in pitching six innings of one-run ball, allowing six hits and one walk with seven strikeouts. Shortstop Yusuke Akitoshi and designated hitter Lee Stoops had two RBIs apiece for the Studs. They finished the weekend with a 6-4 win on June 23, as left fielder Jordan Copeland had a two-run triple in the sixth inning and Stoops gave the Studs the win with a bases-clearing double in the eighth inning to make it 6-4. Boe finished
3-for-5 with two runs scored. The Studs will travel to Kelowna, B.C. for the Canada Day Tournament from June 28 to July 1, and will host the North Sound Emeralds on July 3 at 5:30 p.m. at the University of Puget Sound.

still pretty close to home, but hereâ€™s hoping we do get a team here in Seattle in the near future,â€? he said. With the drills winding down in the morning session on day two, Thomas decided to liven it up a little bit. With split up teams running four-on-four fast break drills, Thomas began to lead cheers for both units. â€œIt makes me feel young again, and I love to see the smiles on both the boys and girls faces, they can tell their parents an NBA player was cheering for them.â€? With headlines involving name athletes popping up in the police blotter pages more and more, itâ€™s refreshing to see over 100 kids having a blast learning basketball from an NBA player from your home town. These kids will take away more than just the new skills they learned in the four-day duration of this camp, they will also take away the memories of a real hometown hero who gave more than just his time and money to improve these kidsâ€™ basketball skills. Theyâ€™ll tell their kids down the road of their experience with Isaiah Thomas.

a run-scoring single to cut it to 7-3. The Grizzliesâ€™ Johnny Monell would add a monster solo homer well over the wall in right field in the fourth off Maurer, who finished by giving up four runs on five hits in five and two-third innings, with two walks and nine strikeouts. â€œHe definitely has the body, and the arm, and the head to be a major league starter for a long time,â€? Stearns said. â€œWeâ€™ve got to get him there. Heâ€™s not there yet.â€? The Rainiersâ€™ offense kept on churning in the bottom of the fourth, as Peguero â€“ who finished 4-for-4 with two doubles and three runs batted in â€“ sin-
gled to score Ackley and Alex Liddi followed with a mammoth homer over the bullpen in left to plate Peguero and make it 10-3. That capped a very unpleasant outing for Fresno starter Fabio Castillo, as he gave up 10 earned runs on 10 hits in four innings, with four walk and four strikeouts. Liddi and Tenbrink added run-scoring singles in the sixth inning to extend the lead, while Peguero plated Almonte with a double in the seventh and Poythress later singled to bring in Ackley and cap the scoring. The 14 runs were a season high at home this season for the Rainiers, who also matched a season high with eight doubles. Almonte, Miller and Ackley combined for seven runs scored in hitting 1-2-3 in the order, as each player sported a batting average of at least .324

to that point. â€œThose three guys at the top of our lineup are really outstanding hitters,â€? Stearns said. â€œI donâ€™t know how long weâ€™re going to have all three of those guys.â€? Miller was batting .386 (32-for-83) during his 20-game hit streak to that point, as it began on May 29. â€œIâ€™m just trying to get a routine and be aggressive, really let it fly all the timeâ€Śnot give away any at-bats,â€? Miller said. â€œI think the main thing is just going up there trying to be really aggressive and be on the attack.â€? The win put the Rainiers at 46-33 overall on the year to maintain their lead atop the PCL Northern Division, as they were scheduled to begin a four-game series against Las Vegas at Cheney Stadium on June 27.

“People in the community can express their own caring by doing this,” Di Nino said, as the finished product – the decorative arch with thousands of flowers – will have a high visual impact and allow for many people to welcome the service members home. “We want everyone in the community to express their gratitude that these troops have returned safely.” All you need are two materials – anything yellow that can be made into a flower and pipe cleaners (preferably green). Di Nino encourages recycling – yellow wrapping paper (predominately yellow), crepe paper, tissue paper, yellow plastic bags (like the kind from Grocery Outlet), feathers, old yellow tablets, plastic tablecloths, fabric, newsprint (not newspaper) spray painted yellow (afterward), and even silk/plastic flowers can be part of the mix if you have some lying around. It’s important to use something bendable (like green pipe cleaners) to make the flowers so that they can be securely fastened to the chicken wire stage arch. Looking through the boxes and bags full of flowers made so far reveals a multitude of textures, styles and shades of yellow. Some are even made with goldglittered paper, which blends in beautifully with the yellow flowers. “Everybody can do them according to their skill level,” Di Nino says. “We are finding that napkins

work the best because they look so great.” The deadline is Sept. 1 to have all the flowers made. There are two drop-off points where finished flowers can be delivered, and Di Nino asks that flowers be packed in boxes in order to protect them: Washington Women’s Employment and Education (WWEE) at 3516 S. 47th St., Suite 205, Tacoma, WA 98409; and Little Church on the Prairie at 6310 Motor Ave. S.W., Lakewood, WA 98499.
THE RAIDERS RETURN
The Raiders Return Welcome Home Event on Sept. 15 is being organized by the City of Lakewood in coop-
eration with the 4-2 Stryker Brigade Combat Team (SBCT), the Lakewood SubChapter of the Association of the US Army (AUSA), and other community partners. The day will include two welcome home events for the 4-2 SBCT after their nine-month deployment to Afghanistan. First up will be a Raider Welcome Home Parade starting at 9 a.m. The route will go from the Lakewood Police Department (Lakewood Drive and 95th St.) to City Hall (6000 Main St. S.W.). Mary Dodsworth, director of parks, recreation and community services for the City of Lakewood, said the parade will be all about the
troops, with about 2,000 of them marching. “It’s really a procession of the troops,” she said. The Raider Welcome Home Celebration will then start at 1 p.m. at Fort Steilacoom Park (9200 Steilacoom Blvd. S.W.) and run until 6 p.m. There will be music and entertainment; a public market full of arts and crafts vendors and booths representing non-profits and businesses; a motorcycle rally sponsored by Northwest Harley Davidson; kids inflatables and a petting zoo; a classic car display with police, fire and EMT vehicles; competitive activities like baseball throws and tug-of-war; a beer garden
and more. Dodsworth said the city isn’t planning for this to be an annual event, as it is being held for the specific purpose of welcoming home the 4-2 Stryker Brigade Combat Team. “It’s a way of just saying welcome home and thank you for your service and to recognize those lost to the battle.” Di Nino’s involvement in this project stems from her participation in the American Leadership Forum of Tacoma/Pierce County (www.alftacomapiercecounty.org), the local chapter of this national organization that works to connect, and strengthen diverse leaders for the public good in their
own local communities. Di Nino is part of the just-graduated ALF Class XIX and as they are required to do a project to enforce their learning, her class chose to support RallyPoint/6 and this organization’s part in the Raiders Return Welcome Home Event. Headquartered in Lakewood, RallyPoint/6 is a new non-profit consortium of public, private and community partners in Washington State working to help returning veterans with reintegration issues. RallyPoint/6 is, in the simplest terms, a “one-stop shop” resource center for active and reserve military, veterans and their families. Developed by a coalition of more than 55 veteran and military-serving organizations, nonprofits and government agencies, RallyPoint/6 aims to inspire, equip and mobilize veterans to engage their local communities through meaningful service in eight impact areas: community, reintegration, employment, education, family strength, health/ behavioral health, finance/ legal, housing stability, and volunteerism. ALF Class XIX is assisting RallyPoint/6 reach military, veterans and families at the welcome home event. Sponsors are still needed for the Raiders Return Welcome Home Event, and space is still available for those non-profits or businesses that wish to participate in the public market. Visit www.cityoflakewood. us for applications and additional information. To learn more about RallyPoint/6, visit www.theunfinishedmission.org.

cies that would otherwise add up to $700,000 to $750,000. Then the commission must come up with another $200,000 to pay for fireworks and other entertainment. That seemed like an especially shaky proposition this time last year with donations lagging and no title sponsor to foot the bulk of the bill. In the end, Tacoma Events Commission managed to put the festival on without significantly scaling back, but there briefly were discussions about discontinuing the event altogether. “The last couple of years have really been tough,” said Grape. “Not that it hasn’t been tough this year, but a lot of pocket books are opening up more than they have in the past few years. Just that the Emerald Queen is considering being a major sponsor is a real plus; and we have a few grant foundations that we’ve never been able to tap into.” “We’re still nailing down some of the sponsorships that said they would help us,” Linenko said. “Some of the sponsors who have given generously before have scaled back due to the economy, and we don’t have the funding we once did to cover (the budget.) So we are asking people to give generously and donate in hopes that we can rekindle some of the relationships that we had lost in the past and develop new relationships.” Tacoma Events has set up a Paypal account to solicit donations online at www.freedomfair. com. Donors that give $45 can join the Freedom Fair Fan Club and gain VIP privileges on July 4. And while there is officially no entry fee to attend Freedom Fair, organizers are requesting that attendees voluntarily contribute when they arrive, with a suggested donation of $2 to $15. “If we continue the way we have been, I have no doubt we’ll be back in 2014,” Linenko said.

FOR THE FIT AND DARING:
A playground in the trees By Kathleen Merryman firstname.lastname@example.org
Metro Parks Tacoma is kicking the concept of “playground” into a new dimension. We are not talking about the snazzy new spray parks and climbing structures throughout Tacoma. Fun, healthy, safe and adventurefilled all at once, they dare kids to test their muscles, balance and imagination. They are why play is good for kids every day. And they are good practice for the new big thing. Even while Metro Parks is investing in the neighborhoods, it has partnered with Deep Forest Challenge to build a new set of adventures at Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium and Northwest Trek Wildlife Park. They have put swings 50 feet in the air and launched climbing walls into the tree canopy. They are challenging us to get over heights, and test – or discover – our limits. They are an incentive to develop, or reclaim, the strength and skill to take them on. Trek’s complex of four courses is a marvel of engineering, with zips, tunnels and wobbly bridges built over and around each other – and the paths walkers take around the park. The quartet begins with the Super Kid Course, for kids 6 and older, then moves on to the Discovery Course, with a minimum age of 8, and Adventure Course for people 10 and up. Last year, word spread that Adventure was extreme. From the 30-foot wall at the
beginning to the 55-foot high tightrope, it was a challenge beyond Point Defiance Zoo’s Discovery Course, itself no walk in the park. This spring, Sensation opened. It is Adventure times two: Higher, tougher, wobblier. On a warm, drizzly day, a collection of soldiers, theater people and an educator brought their best to test Sensation. Photographer Jesse Gardner Michener had invited them to be the faces, feet and muscles on the Metro Parks website. You can see her gallery, and shots of the course at www.nwtrek.org/zipwild. Deep Forest Challenge course manager Jennifer Robinson put those photos in context. “When people complete Sensation, they will know they’ve had an incredible workout, and they’ll walk away with a triumphant sense of satisfaction,” she said. That’s what you see on the faces: exertion, concentration, triumph and elation. That’s what the loose team experienced, or, more accurately, contributed. As individuals, they may be competitive, but cinched into their harnesses and clipped onto the safety wires on the course they were cooperation incarnate. On the rope ladder to the first platform, they experimented with technique, shared tips, and for the least acrobatic suggested anchoring the bottom of the ladder, rather than allowing it to flail. They took the spaced slats of the first rope bridge at a good pace, demonstrating how smooth one step at a
time, or a two step to each plank, can be. They clipped and zipped. On the monkey ropes, they called back a warning about the harness clip catching on bolts on the safety cable. The bolts are there to prevent anyone who slips between the rope loops from sliding backward on the inclined wire, explained guide Victor Robinson. And so it went through the 12 challenges, including the Cherokee Net, Monkey Bridge, Tyrolean Zip Line, Tightrope, Barrel Bridge, Himalayan Bridge, Squirrel Bridge and two daunting Corsair nets. “Lean to your left,” soldiers and dancers yelled 30 feet up to Michener on the treacherous zig zag of the Kodiak Beams. Her camera was swinging around her neck, an extra impediment just when she didn’t need it. “Now reach ahead with your right hand! That’s it! You’ve got it! You’re doing great! You’re almost there!” Her new fast friends sent up a mighty cheer when she stepped onto the platform, then the Corsair Net to climb up to the final zip line. Michener is an adventurous, conscientious mom who, if you add up the hours, has spent weeks on playgrounds with her daughters. When, on that drizzly morning, she stepped off the net onto the duff-covered ground, she found a new balance, tested her limits and played well with others. She had faced the Deep Forest Challenge. She had conquered Metro Parks’ playground of the next dimension.

LAKEWOODâ€™S â€˜IMPORTANCEâ€™ â€˜Spamalotâ€™ hams it up GOES WILDE WELL at Paradise Theatre
PHOTO BY DEAN LAPIN
SEATED. Algernon (Andrew Kittrell) and (in window) Cecily (Cassie
Fastabend) and Gwendolen (Deya Ozburn) star in the Lakewood Playhouse production of Oscar Wildeâ€™s â€œThe Importance of Being Earnest.â€? By Steve Dunkelberger email@example.com
owerfully nuanced acting in Lakewood Playhouseâ€™s staging of â€œThe Importance of Being Earnestâ€? brings the 118-year-old play to the current day without losing its heritage. Oscar Wildeâ€™s farcical comedy, after all, had created the formula of compounding white lies into mistaken identities and fast-talking that pretty much every modern sitcom uses to this day. On one level, the play is a comedy, while on another, it is a biting commentary about social norms told through the adventures of two well-travelled men about town who use fictional â€œcover storiesâ€? to live separate lives in the country than they do in the city. Their separate ruses come to light when they inadvertently merge lies and struggle to keep them straight when they fall in love along the way. The trick to staging a British â€œperiod pieceâ€? of this caliber is that while the script is a proven hit, weak acting in a show that is so word heavy could bring ruin. The play lacks fight scenes, deep drama and over-the-top comical lines machine gunned from the stage. It just rolls along with giggles here and there brought by subtle delivery and strategic eye rolls and nods. Unskilled actors and untrained directors could miss the moments. Such is not the case with Lakewoodâ€™s show. Director Marilyn Bennettâ€™s doctoral work
in Theatre History and Criticism was well used in staging this season-ending show. Each scene seems to have been hammered and folded and hammered again to forge a sharp sword of theatrical awesomeness. The multi-layered lines were allowed to soak and age to perfection. At the center of the awesomeness are John Worthing (played by Bryan K. Bender) and Algernon Moncrieff (Andrew Kittrell), who find themselves in love with Hon. Gwendolen Fairfax (Deya Ozburn) and Cecily Cardew (Cassie Jo Fastabend), respectively. The trouble is, their loves know them both as Ernest, their cover story names. Their portrayals are three dimensionally realistic but over the top in their hilarity. Fastabend is just adorable as the youthful but cutting ward in love, and Ozburn owns the stage every time she does a period piece. This show continues that trend. Wilde must have had a premonition five generations ago that Ozburn would handle his words like she were wearing a pitcherâ€™s mitt â€“ each line was worked and oiled and tooled for a full delivery. Ozburn delivered. â€œThe Importance of Being Earnestâ€? runs at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and at 2 p.m. on Sundays. Tickets are $24 with student and military discounts. The theatre is located within the Lakewood Towne Center, 5729 Lakewood Towne Center Blvd. Contact (253) 5880042 or lakewoodplayhouse.org.

LAUGH-A-LOT. â€œSpamalot,â€? the musical inspired by British comedy classic â€œMonty Python and the Holy Grail,â€? runs weekends through July 7 at Gig Harborâ€™s Paradise Theatre. By Steve Dunkelberger firstname.lastname@example.org
ig Harborâ€™s Paradise Theatre opened the Northwestâ€™s premiere of â€œMonty Pythonâ€™s Spamalotâ€? on Friday as a way to end its regular season with a hearty helping of British humor all dressed up in outrageous accents. The gig includes flying stuffed cows, killer rabbits, taunting Frenchmen, mothers who bear a striking resemblance to hamsters and fathers who apparently smell like Elderberries. All this and more left the audience with aching sides from laughter. Winner of the 2005 Tony Award for Best Musical and nominated for 13 other awards, â€œSpamalotâ€? pulls from the 1975 comedy â€œMonty Python and the Holy Grailâ€? in its musical retelling of the adventures of the King Arthurâ€™s Knights of the Round Table. All the great scenes are there, including â€œThe Knights Who Say Ni,â€? â€œKnights of the Round Tableâ€? and â€œBrave Sir Robin,â€? and a shout out to â€œMonty Pythonâ€™s Life of Brianâ€? with the addition of â€œAlways Look on the Bright Side of Life.â€? Anyone who is a fan of the movie will know what is in store during the stage production. Those unwashed heathens unfamiliar with the celluloid gem will be surprised. The book and lyrics by Eric Idle and music by Idle, with help from John Du Prez, take the best of the movieâ€™s humor and wrap it into a stage show that plays like
a movie on a stage. The costumes and dance numbers are period and tight in a show where timing is everything. There are no big laugh moments, just a machine gun of vaudevillian one liners and deadpan deliveries that only work with practice and British accents. Anchoring the show are King Arthur (played by Jonathan Bill) and his â€œhorseâ€? Patsy (Gary Fetterplace) as they venture around their Middle Age realm to find knights worthy of the quest to find the vessel used at the Last Supper between Jesus and his followers. Along their route, they find the famed Lady of the Lake turned spritely diva (Alicia Ross) and the likes of Not Dead Fred (Jake Atwood) and Sir Robin (John Mobus). Solid acting was done by all, however, the translation from film to stage could have used a bit more energy and antics. The movie played well in theaters because it included so many oddball close-ups and subtle line deliveries that simply canâ€™t shuttle to a stage version without some impact loss. But it was well worth the trip across the bridge, nonetheless. â€œSpamalotâ€? runs at 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and at 3 p.m. on Sundays through July 7. The theater will host a special dinner show at 6 p.m. July 6 as well. Paradise Theatre is located at 9911 Burnham Dr. N.W. in Gig Harbor. Tickets are: $20 for adults, $17 for seniors and $10 for students and are available at www.paradisetheatre.org.

FISH TALES. Closed last Halloween, The Goldfish Tavern will operate an outdoor beer garden during the upcoming Taste of Tacoma. Under new ownership, the venerable establishment will be fully functional later this year. By Ernest A. Jasmin email@example.com
acoma’s Goldfish Tavern will reopen for Taste of Tacoma. Well, sort of. “We’re not open inside, we’re just opening a beer garden,” said Teresa Smith, whose family owns the iconic watering hole, which has stood at 5310 N. Pearl St. since 1933. Previous business owner Sandie Stevens shuttered the Goldfish last Halloween, unable to keep up with lease payments. The building’s owners – also Smith’s sons-in-law, John, and Bill Eberhardt and their mother Carol Gore – have since applied for a new liquor license, intent on reopening later this year. Smith said they are awaiting approval of a loan needed to do $150,000 to $200,000 worth of renovations, and they hope food and beer sales this weekend will allow them to continue the work of bringing the building up to code. The Goldfish beer garden will be open during Taste of Tacoma, which will take over adjacent Point Defiance Park with more than 50 food booths, music and other entertainment June 28-30. About 225,000 hungry attendees are expected to turn out this weekend, an opportunity that Goldfish owners felt they
couldn’t pass up. “A few weeks ago, we were looking at the time ticking down until the Taste of Tacoma, and we knew we had to do something there,” Smith said.
“[The Goldfish Tavern] will look a lot like its old self, only better. We don’t want to change it so much that people don’t recognize it.” – Teresa Smith Owners’ resources were tapped from making improvements to the building, she said. They held a rummage sale and turned to the fundraising website Kickstarter.com in hopes of making enough money to set up shop before a benefactor came
through in the 11th hour. “This actually just solidified over the last few days. It’s flying by the seat of your pants, but we did it,” Smith said. “We have the event license that will carry us for another couple of months, so we might do the Fourth of July there, too.” Smith said the Goldfish needs many improvements just to bring the building up to code, repairs to its floor, plumbing, roof and frayed wiring. But she said owners also plan to make other changes aimed at expanding the tavern’s menu and making the building more comfortable. “It will look a lot like its old self, only better. We don’t want to change it so much that people don’t recognize it,” Smith said. “We’re gonna have a little kitchen there. We’ll be able to do sandwiches and soup and food to go and things like that.” “Our intention is to be open about 7 o’clock in the morning and have coffee and breakfast sandwiches and stuff like that for walkers. There’s a lot of traffic that goes by there.” The Goldfish beer garden will be open during festival hours, which are from 11 a.m. until 9 p.m. on June 28 and 29, and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on June 30. See sidebar for lineup of entertainment at this weekend’s festival.

GUITAR HERO. Buck Ormsby holds court at the Pantages during a reunion of the Sonics. By Ernest A. Jasmin firstname.lastname@example.org
assist Buck Ormsby formed Etiquette Records in 1961 with his Fabulous Wailers band mates, Kent Morrill and Lawrence “Rockin’Robin” Roberts. During the next few years, Etiquette would issue some of the most influential recordings in Northwest rock history: the Sonics’ garage classics “Boom” and “Here Are the Sonics;” the Wailers’ own iconic rock revamp of Richard Barry’s doowop gem “Louie Louie,” a template that Portland’s Kingsmen would ride to international stardom. “It’s still active, but I haven’t done anything other than release Kent Morrill’s album,” Ormsby said of Etiquette’s latest output, a reissue of Morrill’s solo work released after the Wailers singer and keyboardist died in 2011.

But Ormsby was inspired to fire up the Etiquette machine once again as he trotted the globe with the resurgent Sonics, a band he managed until recently. Australian and European fans constantly queried about the label’s current output; and thus encouraged, Ormsby finds himself immersed in “The Guitarists,” his first new Etiquette project in years. “We have some great talent up here,” he said. “It’s not just guitar players, it’s excellent everything. The Northwest has always been known for being inspirational to a lot of other areas of the world. But when people like Rod Cook – who is an absolute killer guitar player – is not recognized in the world of guitar players, to me it’s important that he gets recognized.” The idea is to capture live performances of great Northwest guitarists past and present. Ormsby and a small crew have been recording local guitar heroes with their bands at Tacoma’s Swiss Tavern, and early sessions have captured Mark Riley, Jho Blenis and Jerry Miller, the Tacoma boy who – thanks to his work with Moby Grape – made Rolling Stone’s 2003 list of 100 greatest guitarists of all time. Ormsby said he has invited other Northwest greats to participate – the Ventures’ Nokie Edwards, the Sonics’ Larry Parypa – and that he also plans to dust off from Etiquette’s vaults unreleased recordings featuring the Wailers’ iconic guitarist, the late Rich Dangel.
And Ormsby already has his sights set on the next recording in the series. “I’m going to do the singers,” he said. “The singers are going to be Kent Morrill, Rockin’ Robin Roberts, stuff that people haven’t heard; Gail Harris, Little Bill (Engelhardt). I want to do that and promote some history. It starts with history, and hopefully it will be inspirational for a lot of people who listen.” Scheduled performances for “The Guitarists” series at the Swiss Tavern, 1904 S. Jefferson Ave., in Tacoma, are as follows: Rod Cook (July 8): A stylistically versatile guitarist best known as the leader of Rod Cook and Toast and for past collaborations with Seattle singer-songwriter Laura Love and Tacoma girl turned “The Voice” star Vicci Martinez. In 2012, Cook received a lifetime achievement award at Washington Blues Society’s Best of the Blues Awards. Neil Andersson (July 24): Andersson learned how to play guitar in high school and joined the Fabulous Wailers in 1964. Nearly three decades later, he became a founding member of popular gypsy jazz outfit Pearl Django, but retired from that band in 2010 to focus on art and other musical projects. Dean Reichert (July 29): Reichert is probably best know for Butterbean, his band with drummer Michael Kinder and keyboardist Buck England. He is also a veteran of the New Blues Brothers Revue.
