Tacoma Art museum held a ground-breaking ceremony last week to mark the beginning of the museum’s building expansion and redesign to house the Haub Family Collection of Western American Art. The new galley space is set to be

“transformative” and launch TAM into the highest rungs of Western American Art in the nation. “This is a remarkable moment for the museum,” said director Stephanie A. Stebich. “We are taking a historic step toward connecting Tacoma’s past and present through art. This extraordinary project

is proof of our community’s dedication to the arts, and we are honored to be able to create a gathering space where we can all meet and share art moments for generations to come.” Construction of the Olson Kundig-designed, 16,000RENDERING COURTESY OF TACOMA ART MUSEUM square-foot wing begins in late October and will double the HAUB.

The call is out for CASA volunteers for foster kids By Kathleen Merryman


The dentures arrived first, then the stove. It was the Puyallup Tribe’s third free neighborhood cleanup of the summer, and teeth are turning out to be a regular occurrence. “It seems like we get them every time,” said regular volunteer Theresa Sportsman. “Uppers and lowers, a full set,” quipped David Whited, the poet and tribal grant writer who initiated the clean-ups and coordinates them all. “Albert picked up a stove by the sweat.” That would be the sweat lodge where tribal members gather to pray and meditate. It’s a sacred place, Albert Combs said, and it baffles and offends him that people would use it as a dump. So he and his wife, Merrilee Satiacum-Combs, make it their business to clean up other people’s misdeeds there, and on Browning Street. They carry pitchforks in her truck to heave the garbage. They, Theresa Sportsman, John Strickler, Kyle Grobler and Ron Heinz show up at every clean-up day to help offload trash into containers bound for the City of Tacoma’s dump. They sort out the tires, and the metal for recycling, and they

sweep up the tribal headquarters’ parking lot. In three clean-ups this year, they’ve gotten 67.52 tons of junk out of their East Side neighborhood. “My volunteers are really shiny,” Whited said, and grinned. “Whoa,” he said as Frank Costello pulled in with a pickup near to overflowing with trash bags. “This guy’s a machine.” Costello had just been there, unloading another pickup load. Now he was back. “I go around to the Puyallup elders and take this stuff out of their yards,” he said. “We help all the tribal members who don’t have cars. God believes you should always give.” Combs feels an element of the sacred in the work he and his wife do on their own at the sweat lodge. “It’s a place of prayer, where people come together to pray,” he said. And it’s a place heedless jerks defile. He’s picked up sofas, needles and drug paraphernalia, beer cans, liquor bottles, blankets – and that stove. That’s nothing to what he and Satiacum-Combs have found on Browning Street, the narrow, winding road that connects Grandview Street with Pioneer Way. “I have this special little street over here where everybody dumps stuff,” she X See CLEAN-UP / page A5

Pierce County children pulled out of dangerous homes and sent into foster care face a new world in which most everything changes for them. For the lucky kids, a CASA is the one exception. In Pierce County, Court Appointed Special Advocates are the constant for children whose families are struggling through the foster care process. Judges, lawyers, guardians ad litem and caregivers can shift around them. But the volunteer CASA stays, meeting with the kids, playing with and listening to them, until they return to competent parents or are free to go to a different, safe and permanent home. The child is the CASA’s first priority. “Basically, we are volunteers concerned about the children in our community who wind up in foster care,” Mary Bartley explained. “It’s our job to advocate for them.” They are a comfort in short supply. There are enough volunteer CASAs to stick with about half the Pierce County foster children who need them. Bartley is pretty sure that’s because potential volunteers aren’t aware of the program. “It’s the best volunteer job,” she said. “We would have more CASAs if people knew about it.” There’s likely more to the scarcity. Unlike Bartley, who is a retired social worker, some people are intimidated by the prospect of working with courts, social workers and children who have been through emotional, and possibly physical, trauma. It looks tough, and is tough, at first, but the rewards are worth it, say long-term CASAs. It’s a job that a good person with sound judgment, but no special social work or legal skills, can do, said program director Julie Lowery. “You have to be at least 21 years old and pass a CPS check and a background check with no crimes against persons,” Lowery said. “You fill out an application, and there is screening from the application to the end of the classes.” Those who are interested in volunteering or want

2nd and ‘I’ 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.

Some cars are noted for their beauty. Some are known for their speed. Others become famous for their landmark design and innovations. Others are remarkable because of the roads they traveled. Such is the case with the 1953 Citroen in the LeMay Collection, which was driven on the 90th anniversary of the Peking-toParis Rally by LeMay Museum Board Member Burt Richmond in 1997 and was later donated to the Collection of the Harold E. LeMay Museum. Richmond and his co-driver finished the race second in his class. The Peking-to-Paris motor race was first held in 1907 for automobiles between Peking (now known as Beijing), China and Paris, France as a way to show off the relatively new invention. The race spanned 9,317 miles. Known as the “Deux Chevaux,� which translates to “Two Horses,� the French “people’s car,� was conceived


before World War II and secretly developed during the war. It made its official appearance at the 1948 Paris Auto Salon. Designed under the direction of Pierre Boulanger, the Citroen was designed for working-class country farmers. The car was designed to “carry two farmers wearing clogs, plus 110 pounds of potatoes or a small cask of wine at a maximum speed of

Each year since the food drive inception in 2007 the record has been broken, and this year is no exception. This year, in six hours on Sept. 6, fairgoers gave over 212,000 pounds of food to help neighbors in need. While the volume of non-perishable donations was down, monetary donations boosted the number to a record high. One donor, who preferred to remain anonymous, gave a check for $13,000, and said it would end up being a $26,000 donation, as their employer, Microsoft, matches contributions. Food banks use a standard calculator to convert dollars into pounds of food. The first Fair food drive in September 2007 brought in 5,000 pounds, and slightly more the next year. By 2009, 25,000 pounds were collected on opening day, followed by 90,000 pounds in 2010; 160,000 pounds in 2011, and 200,000 pounds in 2012.

Tacoma police are asking for the public’s help identifying a suspect who robbed the Shell gas station in the 5700 block of N. 26th St. on Saturday, Aug. 17. A surveillance camera caught him brandish- DAVID ROSE ing a large knife. He held it to the clerk’s throat and can be heard on the video saying, “Open it or I’m going to cut your [expletive] head off.” The clerk pleaded with him not to rob the store but eventually agreed to give

him the money as his threats escalated. The suspect is described as white with brown hair, in his 50s, approximately 6’3” and 200 lbs. He was wearing a dark blue shirt, dark blue pants, white tennis shoes and a beige baseball hat with a green bill. Video of him robbing the gas station will be featured on “Washington’s Most Wanted” Friday night, Sept. 13. Detectives are hoping someone recognizes him or his voice and can identify him. Call Crime Stoppers of Tacoma-Pierce County at 1-800-222-TIPS if you know his name. There is a cash reward of up to $1,000 for the information leading to his arrest.


Man apprehended, threatened to continue burning spree By Kathleen Merryman

An arsonist raced through Midland just past midnight Thursday morning, Sept. 5, torching an abandoned house, a car and destroying Golgotha Baptist Church. Firefighters saw a man walk away from the burning church when they arrived, and deputies swarmed the neighborhood around East 84th Street and Portland Avenue searching for him. “We got a call about somebody trying to break into a house,” Pierce County Sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer said. “We responded and snatched him up. He made statements that he was going to burn that house, too. We have no doubt that he is the arsonist, and that he acted alone.” The suspect is 30 years old, Troyer said, and spends time in Vancouver, Wash., and Tacoma. “He is back from Vancouver to here, where he has relatives,” Troyer said. “In fact, he has relatives in the neighborhood.” The man, who has been booked into Pierce County Jail, has a criminal record in Pierce County and was disoriented when he was arrested. “It is quite obvious that he has mental health issues, whether or not they were assisted by drugs or alcohol,” Troyer said.


IN RUINS. Golgotha Baptist Church Pastor Pavel Sandu

tried to come to terms with the random arson that destroyed it.

The suspect did not target the church, he added. “He was randomly lighting fires.” It is the second time a building has burned on the site where the church stands. On Aug. 12, 1987, fire destroyed Weir’s Appliance, which later moved to 112th Street East and Portland Avenue. Harvard Covenant Church built on the site and in March 2012 sold it to Golgotha Baptist Church for $700,000, according to the Pierce County Assessor’s website. Thursday morning, Golgotha Baptist Church members came to the campus at 1611 85th St. E. on

Portland Avenue to see the damage, and try to make sense of it. Pastor Pavel Sandu’s eyes were red from fatigue, smoke and sadness. Fire inspectors told Sandu that someone had put an accelerant over the main entrance, and the fire spread upstairs and into the community rooms and offices. “He is in custody,” Sandu said. “I don’t know who this guy is, or why.” Congregation members are from Moldova, in the former Soviet Union, and have been working for decades for their own

building, which was insured. Now, 18 months after they bought that building, it is charred. “Every member of this church is here because of persecution,” Sandu said, shaking his head. The building had served them as a church home and community center. “Culturally, we stick together,” he said. “Every baby shower, every birthday, every day of the week, this was our home.” Men come every day for coffee, and to play ping-pong. The men’s choir had a practice set for Thursday night. “Tomorrow, we have a wedding,” Sandu said. Except, they don’t. By mid-morning Thursday, pastors of other churches and other denominations were praying with Sandu, and offering to share their sanctuaries. Calvary Baptist Church will host the wedding. “Everybody is coming, saying a little prayer and crying a little more,” he said. “We are not alone.” As he watched his church burn, his prayers transformed his anger and questions into a lesson. “Like a man, I have many questions,” he said. “As a Christian, it is a lesson. I am asking God what I need to learn from this.”

Police Blotter DUMBEST CRIMINALS Police officers find it suspicious when people walking along the sidewalk suddenly start running when they see a patrol car roll by. That is a lesson lost to an 18-year-old felon. He was reportedly walking along the 3900 block of East T Street on Sept. 6, when a patrol officer drove by during a search for a suspect. The man immediately started running and sparked the officer’s attention. The man only stopped when he was found in a yard. Witnesses contacted police and said they saw the man running with a gun in his hand and that he had tossed it into some nearby bushes. The officer found a fully loaded .40 caliber handgun with its safety off. The officer ran the man’s name for warrants and found that he was a convicted felon. He was arrested and advised that he likely wouldn’t have been spotted had he just kept walking instead of running from police, since he was not the suspect the officer was looking for while driving along the street. A woman wanted to get her brother and her baby-daddy some clothes, so she opted to try to shoplift the items from a department store at the Tacoma Mall. She was spotted by store security and arrested by police, who then searched her. The officer found a straw and a glass pipe during the search. The pipe contained suspected drug residue.

A MILLENNIUM. This photo taken at Buschâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 62nd reunion is a very rare, and a first-ever, gathering of car hobby legends who represent more than 1,000 years of loving the great American auto. Each of these 26 participants have been involved in the hobby in some capacity, other than just attending rod runs and car shows for at least 50 years. Their contributions have included organizing car clubs, building cars, painting, upholstery, pin-striping, fabricating, just to name a few of the many contributions made. These are the legends of the hobby and the driving force that has made it possible for future generations to build on. By Matt Nagle


he 62nd Buschâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Reunion was held at Tacomaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Griotâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Garage on Aug. 25, and by all accounts it was a very fun day in the summer sun for everyone. People came from all over to take part in this celebration of Tacomaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s place in the annals of a great American pastime â&#x20AC;&#x201C; cars and cruising. Among the 190 registrants were local car enthusiasts and those from as far away as Eastern Washington and British Columbia who brought their hot rods, customs, vintage and muscle cars to Tacoma for this popular and very unique family event. Each entry received a 1951 photo of the famous Buschâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Drive In, suitable for framing, a dash plaque of what the restaurant looked like in 1936, and the history of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cruising in Tacoma, How It All Beganâ&#x20AC;? on glossy card stock. Known as the car cruising capital of the West Coast back in its heyday, Buschâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s was the place to be during the 1950s and to this day it remains a beloved icon for those who lived during those carefree times. Back then, students at Lincoln High

School made Buschâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s their home away from home, as on any given Saturday night it was commonplace to see teens in hot rods and customs from throughout the Northwest and Canada lined up at Buschâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, the largest drive-in north of San Francisco. Many of these youngsters continued their love of the automobile as serious experts in auto detailing and restoration. Even though this cruising hot spot at South 38th Street and South Tacoma Way is no more, and owners Bill and Thelma Busch have since passed away, their spirit and the great memories of Buschâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s were honored at the 62nd reunion in numerous ways. The day began with a moment of silence in memory of those who are no longer with us, followed by the Canadian National Anthem and our own National Anthem, which the very patriotic group enjoyed immensely. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As in our past reunions, this one also brought together the young and the old of the hobby,â&#x20AC;? said reunion organizer and host Walt Kaplin. He named those who helped make Tacoma the cruising capital of the Northwest that were in attendance for the third straight year, including: Dick Page, Gary Dinwiddie, Bob

Jasper, Chuck Johnson, Jimmy Olson, Jim Walden, Junior Nelson, Harry Schaffert, Bob Davidson, Chuch Traaen, Jack Babbitt, Ken Bradford, Jack Butler, Denny Hall. They and many others shared fond memories of cruising past. There was also a first for the Northwest â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 26 attendees with at least 50 years of experience in the hobby as builders, painters, pin-stripers, upholsterers, and fabricators were included in the historic group photo that accompanies this article. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All in all, the photo represents more than 1,300 years of hot rod experience,â&#x20AC;? Kaplin said. During the event, Kaplin and wife Joanie Kaplin announced that a special meeting took place the day before at Griotâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at which those in attendance unanimously approved to launch the Pierce County Rod & Custom Car Association and the Pierce County Rod & Custom Car Hall of Fame.

SHOW THEM YOU CARE â&#x20AC;&#x201C;WalkWALK THE AIDS WALK kicks off from Cheney Stadium at 9 a.m. Sept. 21 By Matt Nagle

Public events built around efforts to make a difference in the lives of people with chronic illnesses are as much about raising money as they are about getting people there to take part in the day. Whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for breast cancer, lupus, multiple sclerosis or any type of disease, it does a world of good for people living with the disease, as it does their families and friends, to see a large turnout of people who care about them. Such is the case with the upcoming South Sound AIDS Walk on Sept. 21 at Cheney Stadium. The goal this year is to raise $100,000 for the Pierce County AIDS Foundationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (PCAF) prevention and case management in Pierce, Thurston and Lewis counties. There is another goal as well â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to raise the hopes and spirits of the HIV positive people and people with AIDS who will be walking with everyone else. Seeing so much community support helps lessen the blows of negativity and judgments that people with HIV/AIDS still must endure, as they have been since the beginning of the AIDS crisis back in the early 1980s. â&#x20AC;&#x153;On the day of the AIDS Walk, when I look back on that day and assess if it was a successful day, it really has a lot more to do with whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s there and the spirit and the dedication that you see in the community,â&#x20AC;? said PCAF Executive Director Duane Wilkerson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People showing up says a lot about supporting those living with this disease. There will be a lot of people there with HIV or AIDS and what they get from that really canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be quantified.â&#x20AC;?


MUSIC & MORE. The Travis Larson Band will be perform-

ing at the Sept. 21 South Sound AIDS Walk, and favorite emcee Amanda Westbrooke from TVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;CityLineâ&#x20AC;? will return again this year. The Resource Expo will feature AIDS Housing Association of Tacoma, Community Health Care, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Tacoma Alumnae Chapter, MetMeds Pharmacy (Presenting Sponsor), OASIS Youth Center, Pierce County AIDS Foundation, Point Defiance AIDS Project, Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest, Tacoma Rainbow Center, Rescare Homecare, United Way Pierce County, WIRB (Premier Sponsor) and YWCA Pierce County. Also look for the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, who will be leading the Walk.

Even though more than 30 years have passed since AIDS became a national health crisis, people living with the disease still face barriers of insensitivity and prejudice. Wilkerson plans to touch on this in his address to all the AIDS walkers on the 21st. â&#x20AC;&#x153;HIV/AIDS is a disease that flourishes when ignorance, fear and apathy thrive. It is what I call the H.A.R.P. dilemma: homophobia, apathy, racism and poverty.â&#x20AC;? These serve only to undo the work being done at PCAF and to prevent people from getting tested for HIV and seeking help in managing the disease. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We still have clients who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want anyone to know they come to the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;AIDS building,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

which is why we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have our name on the building,â&#x20AC;? Wilkerson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those challenges are still there. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the main points of the AIDS Walk each year is â&#x20AC;Ś to address the stigma and discrimination. It says, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re here with you, we stand with you, that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re worthy of our time, our love, our care and our support.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Wilkerson said he wants to reach out to the LGBT community in particular this year. Even though there have been local and national wins for this community that PCAF has helped nurture and celebrate such as marriage equality and, here in Pierce County, the opening of the new Rainbow Center/Oasis

(ORC) headquarters on Pacific Avenue â&#x20AC;&#x201C; HIV remains a critical issue for the LGBT population. In the past 10 years, more than 60 percent of all new HIV diagnoses nationally have been among gay and bisexual men, yet they represent 2 percent of the overall U.S. population. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a very small percentage of our total population but they still represent the majority of infections,â&#x20AC;? Wilkerson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true in our county and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true in our state. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want the community to forget that. Part of (PCAFâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s) job is to lift that up, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of what the AIDS Walk does.â&#x20AC;? Gay and bisexual men of color, predominantly AfricanAmerican and Latino, are at even more risk, as are women of color. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nationally, state-wide and locally, over two-thirds of women infected with HIV are African-American,â&#x20AC;? according to Wilkerson. Then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the false sense of security based on advances in pharmaceutical treatments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just such a feeling that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a handle on it because there are a lot of articles in the news these days about all the wonderfulness of the new drugs â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and there are people who can tolerate the side effects and who can afford them â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but we still have 55,000 new infections every year nationally and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just way too much,â&#x20AC;? Wilkerson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still no fun to live with this disease, even if the drugs help you.â&#x20AC;? Between their young clientele newly diagnosed with HIV and those who are aging with the disease, PCAF will put to use every penny received from the Walk.

A LOOK AT TCC MEN’S AND WOMEN’S SOCCER TEAMS Titans’ rosters stocked with standout local high school products



ellarmine coach Tom Larsen knew before the start of the season that he needed a few shoes to be filled to again put his team in contention for the state playoffs. If the opener against Peninsula was any indication, it seems as if the Lions will make noise again this fall. Lou Millie stepped in to replace the graduated Sefo Liufau and threw for 245 yards and two touchdowns, and the Lions’ defense held the high-powered Seahawks’ offense in check for a season opening 26-14 win at Memorial Stadium on Sept. 6. “I was proud of our effort, especially in the second half,” said Larsen. The Lions struggled to find an offensive rhythm early, and the Seahawks capitalized when Marque Kriebel hauled in a short screen and rambled 74 yards untouched down the right sideline to give Peninsula a 7-0 lead with 2:47 left in the first quarter. Bellarmine would get the equalizer early in the second quarter when Millie hit a streaking Garrett McKay for an 80-yard touchdown down pass with 10:19 to go in the half. “I felt pretty good out there and got rid of the butterflies, and the coaches showed a lot of confidence in me,” said Millie. The Lions’ defense stood firm against Peninsula, and running back Avega Siolo, and Bellarmine Prep took the lead for good when Millie hit Drew Griffin in the back of the endzone for a 25-yard touchdown strike to give the Lions a 14-7 lead at the half. “We got control of the game in the early part of the second quarter and our defense was outstanding the rest of the way,” said Larsen. Leading 16-7, junior running back Nate Golterman took over. The 5-foot-7, 110-pounder would account for 61 yards, including a 16-yard run late in the third quarter for a 23-7 lead. The Lions would account for 336 yards of total offense, including 91 yards on the ground, which made Larsen and his staff happy. “We were hoping for some balance tonight and we found some, which gives us a little momentum going into the Lakes game in Lakewood (on Sept. 13),” Larsen said. “It will be a tough one.” Noting last year’s loss to Lakes at home, Larsen said it won’t be hard to get his team prepared to play the Lancers. “The only motivation they will need will be last year’s score at Memorial.” By Steve Mullen X See FOOTBALL / page A9

The results have been mixed so far this season for the Tacoma Community College men’s and women’s soccer teams, but the talent – both from veterans and newcomers – on the rosters suggests the potential for success in the near future. The Titan men look to have a strong number of scoring options, having been boosted by the addition of several former high school standouts. “We’re going to be able to create a lot of goals,” said TCC head coach Jason Gjertsen. “It’s just going to be a matter of if we can defend. If we can defend, we’re going to be right there at the end.” Among the talented newcomers to the Titans is reigning Narrows 3A co-MVP Pablo Santos, who flashed a strong leg and scored 12 goals for Foss High School last spring. The Titans have also added speedy forward Brian Wambaa, who was a catalyst for Mount Tahoma last year. The two should combine well with the Titans’ veterans, as former Wilson star forward Chris Peterson and two-time SPSL 2A MVP Cesar Esquivel – from Fife – provide TCC with more dangerous options. Freshman Suwilanji Silozi and sophomore James Glavin, both from Bonney Lake, are two others to watch on the offensive side. But Gjertsen noted that “our most dangerous player overall” is sophomore Joe Snow, who not only possesses strong scoring ability, but defends well. Through four games this season, the Titans had scored eight goals, X See SOCCER / page A9

With matches beginning next week, local girls soccer teams are rounding up their training and starting to figure out who will be their key players. We take a look at a few of the Tacoma schools in this year’s preview.


The Lions have plenty of experience returning from last year’s squad, and will look to go further into the postseason after falling in the district playoffs last year. “What I like about this year’s team is the girls are really united,” said head coach Joe Waters. “They all want to work hard. That’s really half the battle.” Senior midfielder Hope Fleckner and junior midfielder Kaylee Kebba will be able to create chances for the Lions, and promising sophomore Alyssa McKiernan is a dangerous threat at forward. The Lions will have to withstand the loss of senior defender Aly Hirz, dealing with a torn ACL, but seniors Abby Gallinatti and Chanelle Pederson should be solid in the back. Waters noted that junior Angel Kintz will be counted on to produce as well this

First-year head coach Jeremy Leffel inherits a relatively young group, but one that also features a good amount of experience. “I love our youth and our speed,” Leffel said. “We only graduated a couple players and we only have a couple seniors. I’m excited to see what they can do.” The Tigers should be solid in the midfield, with juniors Madison Putnam and Taylor Cecil and senior Alecia Williams leading the way. Junior forward Joyce Jensen provides a solid scoring presence up front, while sophomore Emma Lynch will lead the Tigers’ defense, but is a scoring threat as well. Senior all-league goalkeeper Jordan Sallee also returns and should solidify the defense and provide leadership in guiding the back line.


The Rams will have to replace Narrows 3A MVP forward Brittainy Canonica, but first-year head coach Cory Hoffman – who has been an assistant at Wilson for four years – thinks he has the senior leadership in place to have success early on.

“We’ve got a really good team, a real solid group of kids,” Hoffman said. “We’re going to rely on their experience.” Junior forward Megan Chambers scored some big goals last year, and will be a major threat up front. Seniors Summer Henricksen and Perry Henricksen will solidify the midfield, while captain Sabrina Wilson leads an all-senior defense, which has Hoffman excited. “Defensively we’re going to be better than we’ve ever been before,” he said. The Rams will also have to replace allleague keeper Danielle Rhea, but senior Rebecca Simansky should step in nicely.


Coming off of their first ever playoff appearance, the Falcons will have to overcome some key losses due to graduation and injury in order to have a repeat performance. “It’s going to be a work in progress,” said head coach Mark Kramer. “Hopefully the girls that are returning can step in and fill some of these holes that we have.” Leading the way is senior all-league defender Tyfanni Chin, who not only is stout on the back line but can push up the field and score. But the Falcons will be without

fellow all-league defender Jessica Orozco, who is injured, and will need to find a successor to all-league second-team goalkeeper Pow Onmun. Junior Emma Rue-Johns and sophomore Tyra Goshay should be solid in the midfield, and senior Jennifer Dittell and sophomore Treaunna Madison will be counted on to help the attack at forward.


After the Abes struggled in her first season at the helm, head coach Emily Abbott noted that her players are more aggressive in practice so far, and she hopes will pay off during matches. “We’re getting a lot more crosses off, and finishes,” Abbott said, adding that the players are gaining a greater understanding of the game. “They’re just starting to play really well together.” Junior midfielder Joelle French should be very active in setting things up in the middle, and incoming freshman Naravie Phaisan is a promising midfielder as well. Senior Danely Caldeo and junior D.J. White will look to be the scoring threats at forward, and senior goalkeeper Heidi Leeper also returns to lead the defense.

They defeated Chapman in five sets and La Verne in three sets, but fell to Cal Lutheran and were swept by Claremont on Sept. 8.

Whenever the Lincoln Abes needed a big play in their season opener against Bonney Lake, Rayshaun Miller stepped up and provided it. The senior running back turned two short screen passes into long touchdowns and added a kickoff return for a score to help the Abes to a 25-7 win over the Panthers on Sept. 6 at Lincoln Bowl. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We knew what he was,â&#x20AC;? said Lincoln head coach Jon Kitna, noting that Miller was hampered by a hamstring injury last year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re glad to have him healthy and see what he is. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a dynamic football player.â&#x20AC;? Miller gave the Abes a 7-0 lead with 4:03 left in the first quarter, taking a screen pass from Jordan Kitna on the right sideline and weaving back down the left sideline for a 40-yard touchdown to cap a nine-play, 77-yard drive. Bonney Lake quickly answered with an 11-play, 73-yard drive capped by Ethan McElderryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one-yard touchdown run to tie it up early in the second quarter. But Miller used his speed and quickness to strike again late in the first half, taking another screen on the right side, making a couple of juke moves and dashing 60 yards untouched into the end zone with 19 seconds until halftime. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just give it all to my line,â&#x20AC;? Miller said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were downfield blocking for me. When Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in space I just do my thing.â&#x20AC;? And Miller wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t done, as he received the opening kickoff of the second half and sprinted 95 yards nearly untouched for another score to give the Abes a

with a different player accounting for each. While the defense has been slower to develop, Gjertsen is encouraged by the return to health of Michael Dick, the former Bellarmine Prep star who arrived at TCC after playing at Saint Martinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s University last year. Freshman Austin Hammer should also solidify the defense after nursing a back injury.

The Titans will look to a pair of freshmen â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Stadium grad Ian Fry and Emerald Ridge grad Nicolas Lopez â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to try to establish themselves at goalkeeper, as the two have split time in the early going. Similar to the men, the TCC womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soccer team is still rounding into form, as players have been playing in several different spots to see where they best fit. But the group features a few very talented incoming freshmen who have impressed Gjertsen, who took over as head coach

of the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team this season. Among them is former Gig Harbor standout forward Toria Southworth and former Curtis forward Shayli Housman, who transferred in from Washington State University. The duo should see plenty of action up front along with sophomore Alejandra Zuniga, a Lincoln product who Gjertsen called one of the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best players. Sophomore Rachel

Kimmerly, who scored two goals against Wenatchee Valley in the early going this year, offers the Titans the versatility of playing in the middle or as a defender. But Gjertsen noted that replacing star defender Nicole Davis â&#x20AC;&#x201C; out for the season with a torn ACL â&#x20AC;&#x201C; will be a challenge. Gjertsen is counting on Curtis grad Hailey Bell to be solid in goal for the Titans, who have stumbled out of the

commanding 19-7 lead. Miller also had an impact defensively, adding an interception off quarterback Isaiah Weed to snuff out a Bonney Lake drive midway through the third quarter. The Lincoln defense was stout all night, as senior linebacker Ike Castro and junior cornerback Marcus Johnson delivered some crushing hits and junior Dehonta Hayes picked off Weed in the first half. The Abes limited the Panthers to just 143 yards from scrimmage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They paid attention to detail all week,â&#x20AC;? said Jon Kitna of his defense. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They played as hard as they could.â&#x20AC;? But the night was not without first-game mistakes, as two touchdown passes from Jâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Maka Love to Kashawn Johnson â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including a 43-yarder on the Abesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first offensive play â&#x20AC;&#x201C; were negated by penalties. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is our term: itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s understandable, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s totally unacceptable, if we want to play to our ceiling,â&#x20AC;? Jon Kitna said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll fix it.â&#x20AC;? The Abes salted the game away late in the fourth when Jordan Kitna connected with Dionte Simon on a 31-yard out-and-up route on 3rd-and-1. Kitna, in his first varsity start, finished 14-for29 for 244 yards and three scores, with one interception. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought he let the football go and moved in the pocket great the whole night,â&#x20AC;? Jon Kitna said of his sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s effort. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought he got into the game early.â&#x20AC;?

GALLERY. Tacoma Art Museum’s ground-breaking ceremony of the Haub wing sets the stage for a transformative gallery.

museum’s gallery space, provide greater art experiences for visitors and increase the museum’s role in downtown Tacoma. The ceremony began with a blessing by the Puyallup Tribe and a performance by the Puyallup Canoe Family. It included speeches by U.S. Congressman Derek Kilmer, Gov. Jay Inslee, Mayor Marilyn Strickland, art collector Christian Haub, TAM Board President Steve Barger and Stebich. The $15 million wing will double TAM’s exhibit space just 10 years after the museum opened, and the Haub collection will vault the museum into the top ranks of American Western Art in the nation. “The arts are one of the great economic engines in our state,” Inslee said. “This is a great economic investment for our state. It means 135 construction jobs. It means 10 permanent positions at the museum. It means 20 percent more projected visitors making investments right here in the state of Washington. The Seahawks are a great economic engine. Boeing and Microsoft are great economic engines, but it’s great that we have a new economic engine right here in Tacoma.” The expansion translates into a boost of the museum’s economic impact by $1.5 million annually for a total of $5.9 million in tourism spending. The project’s team also includes Murase Associates as the landscape architecture firm, Sellen Construction as the project’s construction company, and Bonewitz Project Leadership as project management. The project will create a lobby and gallery space. It will also include a new family interactive gallery, a sculpture hall and a visitor orientation room. Changes to the existing museum will include a new entrance from the parking level, a faster elevator from the parking level and improvements to the cafe and museum store. The museum’s outdoor plaza will also be transformed with a canopy that will arch over both the existing museum and the new wing. Outdoors, public art installations will be woven into the areas surrounding the museum. The Haub donation includes three parts: The art work itself, a donation toward housing the exhibit in the new wing and an endowment to provide money for restoration and programs that highlight the art. Other partners in the TAM expansion include private donors, the National

Endowment for the Arts, the State of Washington Building for the Arts program and the City of Tacoma. The Haub Family’s donation of 280 works of Western American art was announced in July 2012 after two years of study and negotiation. German industrialist billionaire Erivan Haub has ties to Tacoma, dating back to when he visited with his wife Helga in the 1950s. Three of his sons were born at Tacoma General Hospital. He has had business and family interests in the area ever since. So, his son Christian Haub said, it only seemed natural that the family donates the collection to Tacoma. “It had to be somewhere where the family had a heritage,” he said. “Fate brought us together.” It also didn’t hurt that Stebich spoke German and was born in the same German town as the Haub family business’ headquarters. The museum currently has two works from the collection at the museum on view in its exhibit “Sitting for History: Exploring Self-Identity Through Portraiture.” The rest of the works will be coming to the museum in the future. Around 100 of those works will be on view in the new wing’s opening exhibition. Future exhibits of the collection will tackle how artists portrayed the West, how they depicted Native Americans and now non-Americans viewed Western legends and icons. The collection includes prominent 19th century artists who shaped our views of Native Americans, mountain men, cowboys, and pristine American landscapes. Big names in the collection include George Catlin, John Mix Stanley, Thomas Moran, and Frederic Remington. From the 20th century, the collection includes artists, such as E. Martin Hennings, Georgia O’Keeffe, Tom Lovell, and John Clymer. who brought modern art movements west and who explored western history and American identity The collection also includes many artists who are active and working today. Contemporary Native American artists William Acheff and Kevin Red Star take a fresh approach and portray American culture in a modern light, and pop artist Bill Schenck uses humor and satire to challenge long-held assumptions about the American West. Together, these collections will offer a comprehensive understanding of the Northwest region as part of the expanded history of the West. “There really is a wonderful depth in this collection,” said curator Laura Fry. “It really is a treasure trove.” The exhibit will open in fall of 2014.

The program is recruiting volunteers, inviting them to the all-day training sessions that begin Sept. 21 and continue Sept. 22 and 27. The training is a big gulp at first, Lowery admitted. “It can be pretty overwhelming.” At the end of the first set of three allday classes, volunteers choose their cases, and, armed with their manuals, meet the children they will champion. “Your learning curve at that point is pretty much vertical,” said CASA Emily Taylor. “You have the support of this office. You can chew things over with your supervisor. I remember thinking, ‘I can’t do this. These cases are really terrible.’ I womaned up and did pick a case and ended up loving the children. It’s a relationship that’s steady and solid. I’m someone they can rely on. I have one child who has had six social workers” CASA Sally Mednansky is frank about the situations kids in foster care have survived. She estimated that about 60 percent of the cases involve parents’ drug use. Incidences of physical abuse, harsh discipline, shaken babies, and over-stressed or mentally ill parents have risen, she said. “Maybe it’s the economy,” she said. “That’s an added stressor.” She has been heartened by parents accessing resources and working hard to deserve their children. Their goal is the program’s goal: Reunification. “I have had a great experience with parents who are actively involved in treatment and services,” Mednansky said. “It’s been rewarding to represent their viewpoint.” Taylor has worked with six families since 2011. “I see my role as the CASA who shepherds the child through the process and tells the court what I think is in the best interest of the child,” she said. “You are not there wallowing around. You are moving them on…” “To their forever home,” Bartley continued. “Whether it’s reunification, or

being allowed to be legally free and find an adoptive home.” “It’s like the best of social work,” she said. “You get to pick your cases. If you like working with babies, you work with babies. With this, I take on what I can take on, and really get into it. It’s the best volunteer job.” She likes working with babies. “I have one family right now with three children, ages 4, 3 and 2. In two years, they’ve been in four different foster homes.” Their grandparents could not handle being foster parents to all three, Bartley said. Now the 3-year-old is in one foster home and the two others are in another. “They’ve had two different social workers, and their parents’ attorneys have changed,” Bartley said. “I’m the only person who’s been constantly on the case.” Though she is the children’s steady person, the time she spends with them is flexible. “It fits so well into your schedule,” she said. She travels a lot, she said, and tucks the visits, reports and half-yearly court dates into the time she’s here. “Working people can work with the kids on weekends and nights,” she said. The program is supportive, flexible, and gives them the tools they need to be effective advocates. “We aren’t out there by ourselves,” Taylor said. And, they say, they have been surprised by what they have learned. “The children themselves are a wonderful source of energy and love for us,” she said. “I am amazed at their resilience, their ability to carry on with their little lives. We tend to think of them as little sad sacks. They’re not.” Instead, they work as hard as all the people who are trying to get them settled in safe homes. Those people, said Taylor, are inspiring. “I’ve been amazed at how many wonderful people I’ve met,” Taylor said. “Foster kids, fosters families, teachers. They are so important to the fabric of the community.” “I’m amazed at these foster families,” Bartley said. “They take these children who are so difficult. They are the saints of our time.”

CALL TRENT, MAYBE: THE CASE FOR A CARLY RAE JEPSEN, NINE INCH NAILS TEAM-UP â&#x20AC;&#x153;Call Me Maybeâ&#x20AC;? singer headed to Washington State Fair PHOTO BY ROB HOFFMAN

â&#x20AC;&#x153;CALL ME MAYBEâ&#x20AC;? singer Carly Rae Jepsen will headline the Washington State Fair grandstand on Sept. 20. By Ernest A. Jasmin


Carly Rae Jepsen called us. She definitely called us. We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to guess like the heroine of her omnipresent breakthrough hit, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Call Me Maybe.â&#x20AC;? For the two Amish people and the guy awakening from a coma that have not heard it, that would be the best best-selling single of 2012, with more than 12.5 million units moved and a video thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s approaching 500 million views on YouTube. Spoiler alert: Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be on the Canadian pop starâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s set list on Sept. 20 at the Washington State Fair. But we had plenty of other cool stuff to talk about, too; you, Nine Inch Nails, mermaids, the worst opening pitch of all time. Just the obvious stuff. Tacoma Weekly: I just saw a clip of you throwing the opening pitch at a Devil Rays game. (The ball hits the ground roughly 80 feet short and rolls over the first base line 10 feet off target â&#x20AC;&#x201C; unless she meant to hit that camera.) Jepsen: That was impressive, wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it? TW: Very. Have you been practicing your curve ball just in case? Jepsen: Oh, obviously Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been working my whole life for that moment. (She laughs) TW: I think there was too much pressure. You built it up too much. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what it was. What are the odds youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll do that again? Jepsen: Oh, I want redemption. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m goinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; back for sure. (Laughs) TW: One thing I know you have been doing, though, is working on new music. Should we expect new songs when you get to the Washington State Fair? Jepsen: Yeah, last night we were in Cape Cod, and (co-writer) Tavish (Crowe) and me had written a song that morning on the bus, and we decided, just spontaneously, to sing it for everybody. We used to do that all the time when we started out together, about four years back. So it was really kind of a nostalgic moment to do something that brave again. It was fun. TW: Do you have an album title yet or a release date? I think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve read that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been working on it since the last one came out. Jepsen: Yeah, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of how I work. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just sort of a constant thing; and then, when an album cycle comes around, I have a whole lot of songs to pick from. But, no, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a little too soon for me to know any title or any release date. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m having a lot of fun creating music, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure all that stuff will come together in no time. TW: I read that you grew up listening to stuff like James Taylor and Van Morrison, which might surprise



people given the style of music you do. Might you get more in touch with your singer-songwriter style? Jepsen: I think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m writing, like, three albums at once, and one of them is (that style). One of them is a little dancier, and then oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just pure pop. At the end of the day, production can kind of change anything. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be about the strength of the song more than anything else. TW: On the last CD you worked with Owl City and Justin Beiber. Are you collaborating with any new people that you can mention? Jepsen: Actually, the first person â&#x20AC;Ś Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m working with is Adam (Young of Owl City) again. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be flying down to L.A. for a couple of days, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re gonna work together. Actually, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Good Timeâ&#x20AC;? (from last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kissâ&#x20AC;? album) was just his song. I think he worked on it with a couple of other writers, too, but they just asked me to feature on it. I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t actually part of the writing on that song. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never really written together before, so this will be our first time trying that, and I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re both really excited. TW: So many people know you for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Call Me Maybe,â&#x20AC;? your hit that was just everywhere. When did you realize you had something special with that song? Jepsen: One of the first moments was seeing Katy Perry do a cover of it. Justin, of course, had done one earlier; but, as soon as I saw her version I thought, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh, maybe this will be something that will catch on.â&#x20AC;? So that was an exciting. I also felt a thrill the first time I was in Mexico City, and I was Justinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s special surprise. I came out just to sing that one song, and it was crazy. There was about 300,000 people in the audience, and they were all singing along to every word, and it was my first time in Mexico. So that felt pretty incredible. TW: There have been a lot of mashups, but my favorite was on the Spin web site. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got one with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Call Me Maybeâ&#x20AC;? and Nine Inch Nails. Have you heard that one? Jepsen: (Laughs) You know who was especially happy with that? (Producer) Dave Ogilvie, who was the mixer of both songs; he mixed â&#x20AC;&#x153;Call Me Maybe,â&#x20AC;? and he mixed (for) Nine Inch Nails. â&#x20AC;Ś So he called me and was like,

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh my gosh! My two artists ... and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re combining them.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hilarious. We were just giggling about that. TW: I was checking your tour itinerary, and it looks like youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be off the road around the time Nine Inch Nails is really getting going. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just throwing that out there. So what else do you have coming up for the rest of this year? Jepsen: My inner 6-year-old kind of died of happiness. I got to be Ariel in â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Little Mermaid.â&#x20AC;? That was kind of fun. Disneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;Ś releasing the diamond edition collection (an enhanced, HD version of the animated classic, due on Oct. 1), and they asked me to play the part of Ariel for a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Part Of Your Worldâ&#x20AC;? music video, which was totally fun. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actually the reason I dyed my hair red. TW: So the single is going to be in the movie rerelease? Jepsen: Yeah, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just gonna be kind of attached to (it), kind of how Christina Aguilera was in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mulan,â&#x20AC;? I was either three or four when it first came out, so it was definitely the Disney show I grew up falling in love with. I can even remember pretending I was Ariel when I was little and at the lake for a beach day. It was totally a fantasy of mine, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty cool that it actually got to happen. Who knows? One day I can have my little babies around and be like, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh look, mumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ariel.â&#x20AC;?

Lakewood Playhouse celebrates 75 years


akewood Playhouse will mark a milestone when the stage lights flicker on Friday night, Sept. 13. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Arsenic and Old Laceâ&#x20AC;? will mark the community theaterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 75th anniversary, entertaining generations of South Sound residents with more than 400 shows. Lakewood Playhouse opened in 1938 and has evolved with the city since its incorporation in 1996. An intimate theater seating 167, Lakewood Playhouse is the oldest â&#x20AC;&#x153;black boxâ&#x20AC;? theater in Washington. The black box theater environment concentrates on the theatrical performances, with minimal sets, and it parallels the playhouseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s focus on community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theater is created through the relationship between performers and their audience,â&#x20AC;? said Lakewood Playhouse Managing Artistic Director John Munn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theater is like a family, and we look forward to many more generations of designers, actors, directors and audience members who will join ours for years to come. We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to share this momentous anniversary and 75th season with the community.â&#x20AC;? During its 75 years, the playhouse has flourished, thanks to the Lakewood communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s involvement and love of the performing arts. Volunteers have donated more than a million hours as designers, actors, directors and front of the house staff. Additionally, the Lakewood Playhouse Institute of Theatre offers an education program to build confidence and theatrical skills. More than 4,500 children and young adults have graduated from the program during the last 15 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our community is fortunate to have a cultural gem for the performing arts such as the Lakewood Playhouse,â&#x20AC;? said Ellie Chambers-Grady, economic development manager for the City of Lakewood. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking forward to the 75th season and to someday celebrating the Playhouseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s centennial anniversary.â&#x20AC;?

WALKER. City Councilmember Walter Neary


he trouble with community theaters staging plays by William Shakespeare is that they have to appeal to families since bread-and-butter shows require adults to bring their children to fill seats. Well, some little folks â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and even larger ones â&#x20AC;&#x201C; find the Old English of the Bardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s era to be a bit tough to wiggle through. Tacoma Little Theatre solved that problem by staging the whole canon of Shakespeareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s works as an impromptu comedy that spans the width and breadth of the legendary playwrightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s works through a series of skits that range from a football game, to puppet show, to a cooking show. Sure, the nuance and subtle sub plots of these classic plays get lost in the conversion, but that is sort of the point. Dancing dudes in drag never fails to get children laughing, especially with the actors pull in the audience with chants and gags. This returning show is full on camp and Shakespearian goodness. All 37 comedies, histories and tragedies the Bard wrote get at least shout-outs in ways adults will find hilarious and children will not only understand but laugh out loud from the overflowing absurdity of the show. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Complete Works of Shakespeare (abridged) [revised],â&#x20AC;? is directed by Suzy Willhoft and has veteran actors Luke Amundson and Blake York going head one with up-and â&#x20AC;&#x201C;comer Coleman Hagerman to present a collection the best plays ever written in the English language. They succeed. The show was staged for a short run of two weekends last year and played to full houses, so TLT know it had a hit worth staging again and brought it back this season for a full run. Amundson and Hagerman anchored the show last year and opted in this go around as well. The uber-talented York replaces Alex Smith, who rounded out the cast last year. Some tweaks and changes and updates were folded into the batter of Shakespearian goodness to make this a show to watch again. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just that funny. Rounding out the fun show was the special touches in the costume department by Michele Graves and puppets by Sarahann Rickner. One criticism, if you would like to call it that, is that the show might have been a bit too polished. The whole concept is that three guys are tasted with educating the audience about the works of Shakespeare in a way that is accessible and fun. So, they do the cooking show and football explanations, â&#x20AC;&#x153;impromptuâ&#x20AC;? for the audienceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s benefit. Since two of the three actors are repeaters in their roles, it would have been interesting to get a bit more â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Line Is It Anyway?â&#x20AC;? with the script that showcase the improv skills the actors have. Having the actors laugh at their own absurdity while they round out the script with stream-of-thought lines would have been theater gold. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Complete Works of Shakespeare (abridged) [revised],â&#x20AC;? runs at 7:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and at 2 p.m. on Sundays through Sept. 22. Tickets are $10 and available online at or call the box office at (253) 272-2281. The theater is located at 210 North â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; St.

Books versus bombs Artists pay tribute to victims of 2007 Baghdad bombing


THE WRITTEN WORD. In March, 2007 a car bomb ripped through Baghdadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book-selling district, Al-Mutanabbi Street. Artists from around the world

were asked to create books to show solidarity with the victims of the blast. A show of the artist books are currently on display at the Collins Memorial Library at UPS. (left) â&#x20AC;&#x153;Witnessâ&#x20AC;? by Miriam Schaer works with an account of the bombing translated into numerous languages. Barbara Hoseinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Waning Gibbous Moonâ&#x20AC;? employs backward script and mirrors. By Dave R. Davison


he University of Puget Soundâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Collins Memorial Library is currently hosting a traveling exhibit of unique artistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s books. These one-of-a-kind or limited edition books (or book-like objects) are a response to a 2007 car bombing that occurred in Baghdad on a street that was famous for its sidewalk book sellers. The bomb ripped through the heart of one of the Arab worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intellectual centers killing 30 and destroying countless books. Destruction of books that contain ideas contrary to their own ideology is a hallmark of

zealots through history. In response to this attack, San Francisco poet/artist Beau Beausoleil and British scholar Sarah Bodman asked artists from around the world to create artistsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; books as a gesture of sympathy and solidarity with those slain and injured. Titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Al-Mutanabbi Street Starts Here,â&#x20AC;? the show will be on view at Collins Memorial Library through Oct. 31 before it moves on to Portland, the next stop in its odessy. The show consists of dozens of artistsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; handmade books kept in glass cases arranged just inside the library. Informative slips of paper beside each book disclose something of each artistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thoughts,

intent and process for their particular book. Some describe the process of their work in exquisite detail. For the production of her book, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just another suicide bombing/I was there,â&#x20AC;? Kristen Hoops created a set of 40 pristine little books, set them on fire and then shot pictures of them as they burned. Her resulting â&#x20AC;&#x153;bookâ&#x20AC;? is a fragmented photograph of the charred remains of the books. The description of the process is more interesting than the final result. Artist Miriam Schaerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s process was as elaborate as that of Hoops but the end result is more visually successful. Shaer had the New York Timesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; account of the bombing translated

into numerous languages and printed on sheets of paper. These pages were all cut into the shape of a hand and bound together. The title â&#x20AC;&#x153;Witnessâ&#x20AC;? is stenciled on the front page. Flame was used to scorch and damage the hand-shaped book. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Al-Mutanabbi Streetâ&#x20AC;? includes books with accordion folded pages, scrolls, broadsheets, and books with elaborate pop up sections. Julie Chenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Momentoâ&#x20AC;? is an elaborate, decorative box that includes a miniature book that is contained in a wearable locket. There is also a pull-out tray in the bottom of the box. Barbara Hoseinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Waning Gibbous Moonâ&#x20AC;? is an elaborate construction of triangular pages with neat print done backwards. Little round mirrors attached to the pages hearken to the

moon and aid in reading the backwards writing. Many of the books contain beautiful examples of printmaking and other graphic techniques. Some are rustic constructions and others are jewell-like little books that look both delicate and valuable. Christine Kermaire of Belgium made small, beautifully crafted little books bound with neat stitches. Diane Scheelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Cycle of Censorshipâ&#x20AC;? is elaborate and rustic: A circular container composed of triangular pockets holds folios of found pictures and slips of paper printed with script. Every slip of paper in each folio has been scorched around the edges. In fact, there is much burning, scorching and torturing of books in this show. It seems a little

ironic that the way many of the artists have paid homage to the victims of the bombing (both human and book) is by recreating the act of destruction. One artist, Christina Mitrentse of the United Kingdom, even went to the extent of taking â&#x20AC;&#x153;readymadeâ&#x20AC;? books and shooting them so that they have bullet holes running clean through them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Al-Mutanabbi Street Starts Hereâ&#x20AC;? began its tour last year at the Westminster Reference Library in U.K. Next year it will visit such locations at the Craft and Folk Art Museum in Los Angeles and the American University in Cairo, Egypt. Several events related to the show are scheduled at UPS. Show co-curator Beau Beausoleil will give a talk Oct. 16. The library is also highlighting works received through the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Muslim Journeys Bookshelf,â&#x20AC;? a collection of books and DVDs on people, places and history of the Muslim world.

502: Ed Taylor (jazz) 8 p.m., NC


PONTOONIN’. Little Big Town – featuring Jimi Westbrook, Kimberly

Schlapman, Karen Fairchild and Phillip Sweet – headlined the Washington State Fair on Monday with songs from their hit album, “Tornado.” By Ernest A. Jasmin


ountry megastar Taylor Swift headlined the Tacoma Dome on Aug. 31 followed by the formidable one-two punch of Craig Morgan and Trace Adkins kicking off the Washington State Fair concert series last weekend. Then – as if local country fans weren’t spoiled enough – Little Big Town dropped by to headline the Fair grandstand on Monday, a raucously-received appearance before the quartet headed back out on the road with Keith Urban’s “Light the Fuse” tour. Little Big Town is enjoying the hottest streak of its 15-year career having scored its first No. 1 on the country album charts with “Tornado” last year and a Grammy for its laid back summer jam, “Pontoon.” Curlymaned singer Kimberly Schlapman acknowledged her band’s big year a few songs into her band’s soulful, harmony-rich set. “We can thank all of y’all, the good Lord and a song about a boat,” she declared. The mere mention of LBT’s smash hit triggered rumbling waves of thunder from the bleachers as many of the 6,500plus on hand stomped their approval. “I’ve never seen such anticipation for some motorboatin,’” Schlapman added, flashing a coy, dimply grin. Fans had been with the band from the opening notes of “Little White Church,” but they seemed to turn their enthusiasm up a notch at this point. Backed by a threepiece touring band, the members of Little Big Town – also Karen Fairchild, Jimi Westbrook and Phillip Sweet – took turns leading songs. Schlapman’s early set showpiece was “Sober,” a tribute to the intoxicating power of love. Sweet took the helm on the equally romantic “Bring It On Home.” And Westbrook and Fairchild

brought palpable desperation to “Your Side of the Bed,” a song about strained relations that had some fans worried about the state of their marriage. (In reality, things seem to be going pretty well.) Fairchild seemed to take charge during the latter half of the set, really catching fire with her sassy lead vocal on “Good As Gone.” But, more than anything, Monday’s set was a showcase of the band’s easy chemistry and lush harmonizing, perhaps best exemplified by their cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “The Chain.” The quartet lilted fans before building to an epic, flickering finale with guitarist Johnny Duke convincingly channeling Mac’s Lindsey Buckingham. “If you can’t sing that one and lay it all out, you can’t sing a song,” Fairchild joked, acknowledging LBT’s 2006 appearance with Buckingham on “CMT Crossroads” as a pivotal moment for her band. “Pontoon” drifted into the set before the encore. Fans cooed and sang along to to lyrics about floating the river and soaking up sunshine, as fitting a celebration of waning summer

as any. But as enthusiastic as the crowd’s response was to that song, it was eclipsed by the uproar for 2005 hit, “Boondocks.” The faithful stomped to the rhythm and howled so loudly during the final that Westbrook had to take a moment before getting the song started again. Not that he minded with love like that being heaped on his band these days. Set list: Little White Church, On Fire Tonight, Bring It On Home, Pavement Ends, Bones, Sober, Front Porch Thing, Your Side Of the Bed, Leavin’ In Your Eyes, The Chain (Fleetwood Mac), Can’t Go Back, A Little More You, I’m With the Band, Good As Gone, Self Made, Pontoon Encore: Tornado, Boondocks

SUN., SEPT. 22 RICK STEVES AT THE PANTAGES Join travel guru Rick Steves as he leads a discussion on Travel as a Spiritual Act. Steves is the author of more than 50 European travel guidebooks and host of the public television series, “Rick Steves’ Europe.” He believes that thoughtful travel expands our worldview and shapes how we address the challenges confronting our nation. Having spent four months each year overseas for the last 30 years, he believes that travel helps us “challenge truths we were raised to think were self-evident and God-given.” Travel also helps us appreciate the spiritual diversity of the planet while nourishing the soul of the traveler as he/she encounters the beautiful and the unique in new and unfamiliar places. His classes have helped millions of Americans not only enjoy maximum travel thrills per kilometer, minute and euro, but become better citizens of our planet. Steves shares how the other 96 percent of humanity sees our nation and explores how his social activism has grown naturally out of his travel experiences. The $75 ticket includes a postshow meet and greet, and the 2014 edition of his popular guidebook “Europe Through the Back Door.” The performance is at 5 p.m. at the Pantages. Info:
