SUPREME COURT VISITS TACOMA FOR PUBLIC HEARINGS Court hears three appeals to criminal convictions By Steve Dunkelberger


SHE RULES. Supreme Court Chief Justice Barbara Madsen is the first

female Chief Justice of the state’s highest court and presides at a time when the majority of the justices are women, another first. The Supreme Court held a traveling hearing of cases at University of Puget Sound.


Washington’s State Supreme Court held a public hearing on three actual court cases for students and legal eagles to view on the campus of University of Puget Sound last week. The current Supreme Court is at an historic point on two counts. Chief Justice Barbara Madsen is the first female Chief Justice of the state’s highest court. She presides at a time when the majority of the justices are women, another

first. The high court last visited Tacoma in May 2005 at Tacoma Community College. They also visited the Puyallup campus of Pierce College in 2009. The recent “have gavel, will travel” event at UPS was meant to provide the public the opportunity to observe the justice system in action and to pose non-case related questions to the nine judges. This “traveling court” is part of the Supreme Court’s policy of providing open access to communities. X See SUPREME COURT / page A5

(Right) The Byrnes and Marlene Carrillo’s family mustered young volunteers, including students and members of Young Business Men, for a summer of painting.


By Kathleen Merryman At 29, Paint Tacoma-Pierce Beautiful is getting younger. This summer, it expanded its pool of eligible homeowners, and in doing so it attracted teams of young volunteers rounded up by Moms. That Mom-power is a fresh force in the program that has, by painting one house at a time, raised the standards for neighborhoods all over the county. Before Amy Allison and

Megan Shea took over leadership of the Associated Ministries program, volunteers painted homes for owners who were low-income and senior or disabled. This summer, they opened it up to all lowincome homeowners. Allison and Shea hit their Matterhorn of a learning curve relying on veteran team leaders to acquaint them with the mechanics of choosing houses, ordering and sorting supplies and motivating teams. Between them, John and Mary Herem, Roy Kilgore, Joyce Schuetz, Caleb Orr, Marv Sandberg, and Jay Langford brought X See PAINT / page A4

A report drafted by Sound Transit recommends that Tacoma’s Link light rail line from the Tacoma Dome to the Theater District start charging riders. A Sound Transit Board vote on the issue was set for Thursday, so results were not available at press time but will be available online. What is clear is that free rides on the Link are ending. At issue now is the fare, between $1 and $2 a trip or double that amount for a round trip that also works as a day pass. The driver behind the switch from free to paid is the fact that the 10-yearold Link is popular, tallying more than a million riders last year. Until now, the cost of collecting fares would be higher than the money they would bring in. That changed last year, when ridership topped a million passenger trips. A Sound Transit Board decision has held that services would be free as long as it would cost more to collect fares than the system would make in ticket sales. Link has reached that point. A policy goal of having ridership revenue make up 20 percent of the route’s budget folds into the decision as well. But revenue from ridership isn’t a straight calculation. The higher the cost for tickets, the fewer riders the Link will have. If one-way tickets cost $1.50, for example, ridership would drop by about 30 percent, down from a million to 693,000 riders a year, according to Sound Transit analysis. At that ridership volume, it would take between one and four years just to recoup the cost of installing the $500,000 ticketing system. The variation depends on the fare rates and the system Sound Transit adopts to mitigate impact the fares would have on low-income people who might qualify X See LINK / page A4

Cami Apfelbeck walked out of LeMay: America’s Car Museum after a Father’s Day day-trip visit from Poulsbo. She was walking to her car in the parking lot and turned around and ventured back into the museum to buy a single $20 ticket for the museum’s Mini Cooper raffle. She didn’t think anything of it at the time. Then she got the call that she won the 2013 Mini Cooper S Hardtop that was donated by BMW Northwest, which had pooled its marketing budget from its Fife and Seattle location. The new car couldn’t have come at a better time, as Apfelbeck had been without a car for two months after she gave her son her car. “I guess I had the golden ticket,� she said, noting that she was never


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.

Broadnaxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commitment to government transparency through core service delivery, continuous improvement and credibility, the City of Tacoma will launch a new customer service effort called the P.A.S.S. Customer Support Initiative. P.A.S.S., which stands for Public Access, Service and Security, will provide residents a level of access to City services designed with an enhanced customer experience in mind. The P.A.S.S. initiative will combine the new one-stop TacomaFIRST (Fast Information Resource Service Team) Customer Support Center with technology tools to deliver an improved and streamlined process for responding to customer service requests. This new center will open Oct. 1 on the second floor of the Tacoma Municipal Building (TMB). â&#x20AC;&#x153;This unified, more centralized access is part of our organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comprehensive strategy to continually improve the way we deliver core services,â&#x20AC;? said Broadnax. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Critical to this strategy are principles to ensure increased public access to information and increased access to services through automation.â&#x20AC;? In addition to the TacomaFIRST Customer Support Center, office footprints have been reassessed in the TMB complex, which includes its TMB North annex, to move all public interface functions to the first three floors of the TMB. Residents and visitors will be greeted on the first and second floors of the TMB by staff specifically trained to guide them to the services that they need. A number of self-service tools that would allow them to submit and track service requests online will complement the Customer Support Center. One such tool is the Customer Relationship Management CityQA online system designed to track and resolve service requests, provide answers to questions pertaining to City policies and programs, and allow for users to ask questions. CityQA will allow for the City to respond more efficiently to residentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; requests. A centralized 3-1-1 telephone number will be phased in at a later date to provide live and after-hours voicemail telephone support for callers seeking City services. Additionally, the City will launch a mobile application during the second phase of the initiative. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What this initiative does is put Tacoma residents first,â&#x20AC;? said Broadnax. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The goal is to deliver multi-modal access to City services in an exceptional way, and provide a one-stop approach in service delivery that offers a concierge feel in the way of reception, face-to-face interaction, telephone and online contact.â&#x20AC;? ;(*64(@6<;/;/,(;9,0:)96(+>(@)6<5+ Tacoma Youth Theatre is creating a new theatre facility at 924 Broadway, right in the heart of Tacomaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Theatre District.

re you faster than a cop? On Saturday, Sept. 28 at 10 pm at Pierce College in Puyallup, see if you can outrun the men and women in blue and raise money for Special Olympics athletes. Walkers, runners, kids and costumes are welcome. Puyallup Police Chief Bryan Jeter says, “It is not your typical 5K run where people are really worried about their time. It’s more about having fun and raising money and awareness for a great cause. So, we’re really excited to see the creativity of people, and what they have for their uniforms.” Law enforcement will be staged throughout the course. You will need to cross the finish line in 30 minutes or less to avoid being locked up in the “Special Olympics Slammer” and ticketed for not being able

to outrun the cops. Registration is $40 per person and includes an event T-shirt. Q13 FOX news anchor and “Washington’s Most

Wanted” host David Rose will be there with the Washington’s Most Wanted Dodge Charger, so stop by and get your photo with

the Crime Stoppers team. Grab a “partner in crime” and “Run from the Cops.” To register, go to www.


The City has given a “deploy” command to a pilot program that would fund a “rapid response” team to battle graffiti along main roadways. Think of the new program as Tacoma’s Seal Team 6, the Naval Special Forces unit that tracked down and killed terrorist bomb plotter Osama Bin Laden in 2011. But these commandos have paint rollers and power washers, not assault helicopters. Under the rapid-response model, a contractor will be tasked with removing graffiti from a private property within three days of when spraypainted “tags” or graffiti appear. The city is talking to several community nonprofit groups to handle the graffiti contract. The work would be free to the property owner up to three times during a calendar year, however restrictions apply. Upon the second incidence, for example, the property owner would have to conduct a Crime Prevention Through Environmental

Design assessment and be required to implement at least one suggestion to receive further painting services. The design suggestions would likely include things like install lighting or cameras, or cut back hedges in efforts to make properties more visible and easier to monitor. The $50,000 graffiti effort is a product of a meeting of Tacoma’s Community Based Services Resource Team last summer. The group is made up of city officials and members of the business and community that explore ways of solving community issues. The team examining graffiti is made up of staff from the City Manager’s Office, Public Works Street Operations and Facilities Divisions, the City Attorney’s Office, Community and Economic Development Arts Administration and Neighborhood and Community Services as well as

staff from the Washington State Department of Transportation and the Downtown Business Improvement Area. This pilot effort will focus on graffiti removal around the main entrances to the city, around clusters of hotels and apartments, commercial strips and main bike routes. “We want to get those highly traveled corridors,” Community Based Services staffer Allison Griffin said. The team is also looking for ways to install cameras in various locations and boost penalties for graffiti offenses. Until now, Tacoma’s nuisance code required private property owners to remove graffiti, at their own expense, within 18 days of being reported. The city is also working on an informational campaign to remind retailers that the city has rules against anyone under the age of 18 years old buying spray paint cans

and pens often used by graffiti taggers. The rules are on the books, but littleknown and rarely enforced. The program should be in place and ready to start later this year. Anyone can report graffiti by calling (253) 798-4721 or learning more at

The tip today, boys and girls, is that if you are going to skip school, it is best to not spend your day walking around the school while passing around a joint with your friends. This lesson comes to you courtesy of five students from Mount Tahoma High School. The lesson began when an off-duty patrol officer was working as a truancy officer for the Tacoma School District, driving around in a marked patrol car during the school day of Sept. 19. The officer was driving across the street from the Mount Tahoma campus that morning and spotted four students. Two were walking toward the school and two were standing at the corner. The officer noticed one of the students blow out a large cloud of white smoke. “I recognized the smoke as being consistent with the use of marijuana, and noted that it was not a cigarette smoke,” the officer reported. Two of the students began walking away as the officer approached. The officer smelled the distinct odor of marijuana. When questioned, one of the students started to argue with the officer, stated that he needed to call his mother and suddenly reached for something in his pocket. The officer responded with handcuffs for all four students and a trip to the principal’s office. The assistant principal immediately remarked about the strong smell of marijuana on two of the students. The two other students were released to class. A search of the two weed-smelling students, however, revealed a mysterious marijuana joint that had magically appeared where the students were sitting just moments prior. Absent evidence that the chair was some mystical weed-producing piece of school furnishings, school officials and the officer concluded that one of the class-skipping, whitesmoke-producing, attitude-copping students with bloodshot eyes likely dropped it before he was searched. He was rewarded with a trip to Remann Hall. Written by Steve Dunkelberger

At 11:45 a.m. on September 23rd, 2013, the pictured suspect robbed the US Bank located in the 7000 block of Pacific Ave. S. in the City of Tacoma. The suspect entered the bank wearing a knit cap pulled over his face and carrying a large knife. The suspect demanded cash from the tellers, then grabbed the money and walked out of the bank. The suspect is described as a white male, approximately 6’ to 6’2” tall, medium build, with auburn hair and a beard. During the robbery he was seen wearing a hooded blue plaid shirt, jeans, and had a bright green knit cap worn as a mask. Fridays at 10:30pm on

But there are no proposals at this point, at least not formally. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have certainly heard inquiries about that option,â&#x20AC;? said Sound Transitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s manager of research, policy and business development Brian Brooke. Following the 20 percent formula, a trip on the planned expansion route that would run a line from the Theater District station up to Hilltop along Martin Luther King would cost between $2 and $4. That expansion is still about 10 years away, and therefore not part of the current fare debate. That route is still not funded because the $50 million â&#x20AC;&#x153;local partnershipâ&#x20AC;? that would fund a third of the project has not been solidified. Sound Transit and federal grants are slated to cover the remaining two thirds of the $133 million pricetag.

of goodness and achievement. Carrillo barged in on Paint Tacoma-Pierce Beautiful (PTPB) in July 2012. She had seen the crewsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; signs around town and one Saturday read on Facebook that a team was shorthanded. She got her son, Loren, 16, in the car with a few of his friends and pulled up to a work party. She asked if they could help, and the boys got to work that day and they next. This year, her crew was among the first to register. On a panel to choose the homes, the single mom of two was reading applications when she realized she qualified. Carol Byrne, who has sons ages 15, 19, 23, 24 and 29, had looked into the program when the paint began to fail on the family home a few years ago. When they read that they had to be senior or disabled, they put it out of their minds until a stranger knocked on their door. The stranger asked if they were done with a dresser theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d put out by the sidewalk. They were. Then the stranger, a Paint veteran, got nosy and asked if

they were low-income, and then if they would like their house painted for free. The Byrne and Carrillo families met at PTPBâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s training session and decided on the spot to become one big team working on two houses. The synergy they created was just two steps shy of magic. It was a great summer for painting, long and not too hot. But, as the teens and young adults realized, it was always too early. Byrne recalled her sonsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; reaction to the project. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The free paint and supplies were exciting. That was our motivator,â&#x20AC;? she said of her husband and younger daughters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But how was I going to motivate my sons? It was not their idea of fun. Marleneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s volunteers motivated us. They were up early and working when my son was still in bed.â&#x20AC;? It was a point of manly pride, then, to be up, too. It was a point of momly pride to meet the unexpected challenges that came with prepping, scraping, priming and painting two homes with a team that shifted in size from 20 to 30 on any given day, with 60 to 70

Most of them did like food, something Byrne had not considered. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was feeding my own sons,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There were times in my life that I got burned so bad it was down to just me and my family.â&#x20AC;? Carrillo helped her open up. She did it by inviting the community to help with food, equipment, money. By the time she was done, Connieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Donuts, South Tacoma Grocery Outlet, Austinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pro-Max, Eloise Cooking Pot, Lincoln Hardware, Home Depot, Happy Days Market, Teamsters Local 117, Legends Da Shop, K.N.O.Eâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Clothing, Safeway, Albertsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Walgreenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Teresa Springer and Doo Wop Coffee were honorary team members. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You introduced me to community involvement, reaching out to others not within your framework,â&#x20AC;? Byrne said to Carrillo. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To create an ongoing friendship, I go back to the business that helped me, and tell my friends to go to them, too. That creates a long-lasting partnership,â&#x20AC;? Carrillo replied. That partnership, like all the others the moms, leaders and students forged through Paint Tacoma-Pierce Beautiful, is how community becomes sustainable, stays fresh and attracts new generations committed to service.

summer-long volunteers. The young people included students from all Tacoma high schools, Bethel High School, Lincoln High School ASB, Key Clubs of Pierce County, and Young Business Men Organization members led by Thrett Brown. The high school students earned community service hours to meet school requirements, and credit toward United Way of Pierce Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s letter in community service. The YBM crew learned skills and earned respect. They also saw the wider effect of their work, inspiring neighbors to paint houses and clean up yards. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The young men were interested in learning how to paint and build fences,â&#x20AC;? Brown said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They helped Megan and Allison put together buckets and load up paint. They did a lot of background work. It was very empowering for them to be painting a whole house, and they learned new social skills.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was overwhelmed by the amount of volunteers,â&#x20AC;? Byrne said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They had to be organized. The spilling of paint kind of drove me to the point of having to supervise.â&#x20AC;? Byrne learned to assign kids to jobs, including the ones nobody wanted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was very tedious, so tediousâ&#x20AC;? said her son, David, 19. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was the main one working on our house. I wanted it to be done the best way, but it takes a long time. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d just keep going over it, and I had to clean up after all my brothers.â&#x20AC;?

At the court sessions at University of Puget Sound, attorneys for each side explained their legal arguments for the Supreme Court to consider. The three appeal cases were:

Playful sea otters will entertain crowds with their antics – and receive special treats and toys – during Sea Otter Awareness Day at Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium on Sept. 29. There will much for humans to do, too, with special otter activities and crafts in the zoo’s Marine Discovery Center and tours of the area where zookeepers prepare food for marine mammals each day. During the event, visitors will meet the zoo’s always playful and entertaining sea otters, learn about their importance in the world’s ecosystem, touch sea otter fur, make a sea otter craft, and watch as they enjoy special enrichments throughout the day. Sea Otter Awareness Day recognizes the vital role that sea otters play in nearshore ecosystems. Zoo visitors will learn about sea otters, their natural history and the conservation issues that face them. All Sea Otter Awareness Day activities are free with zoo admission. Visit for more information.

State v. Kipp: William John Kipp was convicted of child abuse. At the jury trial in 2009, the defense tried to suppress a recording of a conversation between Kipp and the father of the two girls he was accused of assaulting. Kipp’s defense argued that the recording was made without Kipp’s knowledge or consent and therefore was a “private conversation,” not admissible under the Privacy Act. This argument was rejected and the recording was heard by the court. Kipp has now appealed his conviction, citing the Privacy Act. His case is supported by the American Civil Liberties Union. State v. Coley: Blayne Jeffrey Coley was convicted of sexual abuse of a minor in 2008. The presiding judge in the case questioned Coley’s mental stability, and medical examinations followed. A state medical examiner concluded he was competent, while a defense expert stated he was not. Coley claimed he was not mentally competent to stand trial and that the prosecutor had to prove his competence. The court disagreed and ruled that the burden was on Coley to prove his incompetence. After his conviction, Coley won an appeal on the question. That last judgment is now being contested by the state. State v. MacDicken: Abraham MacDicken was convicted of robbing two people at a Lynnwood hotel at gunpoint. When he was arrested in 2010, the police took his laptop bag and duffel bag from his car, placing them where MacDicken could not easily reach them. The police searched the bags and used the evidence at trial. MacDicken argues that recent Supreme Court rulings make it necessary for police to have a warrant if they search belongings in a location where the accused cannot access or tamper with the goods. MacDicken is asking the court to reverse his conviction and to order that the items found inside the bag, including a gun, women’s clothing and a letter to one of the robbery victims, be suppressed in a new trial. For full details about the cases, visit: coaBriefs/index.cfm?fa=coabriefs.briefsBy HearingDate&courtId=A08&year=2013#a2 0130919. The decisions of the court will be posted on the Administrative Office of the Court’s website.


LAW. Chief Justice Barbara Madsen sees herself more as a beneficiary than a trailblazer.

WSupreme Court Attorneys for each side explained their legal arguments for review. “The members of the court see the traveling court initiative as an opportunity to give people a first-hand experience with the justice system, “Madsen said. “We believe that when people see the way the system works, and can ask questions of the justices, they will have confidence in the fairness of the decision making process and in the decision makers. We try to take some of the mystery out of the decisional process. Hearing the questions and interacting with the students and public members also gives us information about where the courts can do a better job in meeting the needs of the people we serve. Additionally, the court uses these trips as a chance to encourage the next generation of leaders to consider the law as a profession, or at least to emphasize the role and importance of the law in the life of the broader community.” UPS Junior Carolea Casas is a history major but comes from a family with a long history of law enforcement careers. As a teen, Casas also had a job in a worker’s compensation firm. She loved watching the high court in action. “It’s all about the details,” she said, noting that she hasn’t ruled out a career in law. “This is like being a kid in a candy store for me. This is a big deal.” The day prior, a panel discussion including several of the justices presented the topic of “Legal Issues in Diversity.” Panelists explored

From page A1

recent controversial legal issues, including rulings relating to samesex marriage and affirmative action in college admissions. The court visit and the panel are sponsored by the School of Business and Leadership and the Office of the President at University of Puget Sound. The Supreme Court visit came as the university celebrated its 125th anniversary and provided a natural opportunity to reflect on the advancement of legal justice since 1888. Those legal changes include Washington statehood and women’s rights to vote and serve on a jury. And here we are flash forwarded to today, with a female Chief Justice and a female majority on the state’s highest court, courtesy of more than a hundred years of marching toward equality. “As a female chief justice, I do not see myself so much as a trail blazer as a beneficiary of the incredible sacrifices and hard work of so many who came before me, Madsen said. “But, I also recognize the excitement and pride that many women feel when they learn that our state Supreme Court is led by a female justice. Women of all ages have expressed this; older women often remark that a goal has been achieved while younger women see me, and the other women justices, as role models -- even ‘rock stars.’ A female majority of justices reflects the number of females in the population -what is surprising is how long it has taken to come to this balance, which just reflects the real world.”

PUGET CREEK RESTORATION SOCIETY In the middle of October Puget Creek Restoration Society will do the pitfall and in-stream monitoring of amphibians, and those who would like to participate in this project are invited to get involved. On Sept. 29 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Society’s office in downtown Tacoma at 702 Broadway, volunteers will be trained in how to conduct Salmon Spawner Surveys for Puget Creek. This will entail going through protocol via a presentation, looking at equipment and data collection scenarios. Then it’s off to South Prairie Creek and the Voights Creek Salmon Hatchery to look at salmon spawning, then to Puget Creek to do a run-through on how to do it at Puget Creek. Bring a lunch, rubber boots. For more information, call (253)779-8890 or e-mail pcrs@ Visit for more on what the Society has going on.

TIGERS IMPRESS IN CITY CROSS COUNTRY SHOWDOWN Stadium takes boys, girls individual titles


Foss comes up just short, Fife topples Clover Park


oach Don Clegg was worried coming into the 2013 season. A big staple from recent, successful Rams teams was missing – size on both sides of the ball. Three games into the season, those fears have been erased, as speed has become the main factor the Rams have sprinted out of the gate to a 3-0 start. Wilson displayed more speed on Sept. 20, blowing out Shelton 41-7 at Stadium Bowl in the Narrows 3A opener for both clubs. “We did a good job of taking them out of the game early, and (quarterback) Isaiah (Simpson) was tremendous,” said the dean of Tacoma coaches, who is now in his 26th year with Wilson. The Rams wasted little time getting on the board, as Simpson found plenty of room down the right sideline and went untouched for a 60-yard touchdown on their first offensive play to give Wilson an early 7-0 lead. “I give it up to my teammates tonight. We went hard every play and executed all night long,” said Simpson. “It was a great team win.” Simpson would score the second of his three touchdowns on the night early in the second quarter when he scampered 62 yards to the end zone, as he would compile 202 of his game-high 242 rushing yards in the first half. After Shelton scored to cut the lead in half, Simpson did it again, scoring from 53 yards out to make it 21-7. “I can’t say enough about the clinic that Isaiah and his teammates put on tonight,” Clegg said. With the Rams sporting a 34-7 lead late in the game, quarterback Julius YatesBrown put the capper on this league opener with a 62-yard touchdown run. “I’m pretty happy with the offensive display tonight, but we’ll have to get better at stopping the run when we come up against the likes of North Thurston, Timberline, and Lincoln down the road,” Clegg said. “And look out for a muchimproved Foss team, too.” Yates-Brown, who like Simpson gives the Rams loads of athletic ability, also has caught Clegg’s eye early on. “Julius did a great job of running our option game tonight. He’s been very good to this point of the season and we’ll need him to execute like he has for the rest of the season,” Clegg said.

In just his second year at Foss, Pat Johnson has his players adopting the never-give-up mindset. Battling miscues and turnovers all night, the Falcons still gave themselves a chance to move to 3-0 on the season, but missed a two-point conversion late against North Thurston to give the Rams a 22-20 win on Sept. 20 at Mount Tahoma Stadium. “It’s nice to know that they believe when they walk on the field that they are going to win,” said Johnson of his squad.

“Our goal is to be in every game. I think our kids are buying into that. They play for each other.” Senior bruising fullback Patiole Pesefea scored his second touchdown of the night with 28 seconds left to cap a 10-play, 73-yard drive for the Falcons to bring them within two points. But he was stopped just short on the two-point attempt, and the Rams recovered the resulting onside kick and ran out the clock. Pesefea got the Falcons on the board on the first drive of the game, scoring on a 7-yard run to cap a 15-play, 67-yard drive. Converted to fullback from the offensive line before the season, the 6-foot-2, 295pounder finished with nine carries for 52 yards. “It’s been good for me, helping my X See FOOTBALL / page A9

If early results mean anything, Stadium might make some noise this cross country season. In a clash against Wilson, Lincoln, Foss and Mount Tahoma – a preseason version of the city championships – the Tigers took the individual and team titles in both the boys and girls 2.5-mile races on Sept. 18 at Wright Park. Junior Shay Glackin-Coley began the day by winning the boys race in 12 minutes and 53 seconds, leading almost from the outset. After battling both back and hamstring injuries his freshman year and knee injuries last season, Glackin-Coley noted that he hopes it is the start of a successful run to the state meet. “I have not been able to complete a full season without facing some obstacles,” Glackin-Coley said. “I’m just really excited to be healthy and see what I can do this year. This is hopefully just setting up to get better and better. “I definitely want to make it to state, because I feel like I really

ellarmine Prep certainly looks like it has the offensive threats and the defensive prowess to rebound from a disappointing exit in the district soccer playoffs last fall. The Lions scored early and often against Wilson in their second match of the season, as junior midfielder Kaylee Kebba scored two goals and added an assist to lead Bellarmine Prep to a 6-0 win over the Rams on Sept. 19. “It’s all about playing as a team,” Kebba said. “My

teammates were getting open for me and playing me the right balls. We were just working together.” Kebba tallied her first goal in the fourth minute, taking a pass from Joey Cisakowski near the left sideline and sending a high arcing shot over Wilson keeper Becca Simansky and into the far post to make it 1-0. She made it 2-0 just eight minutes later, as sophomore Alyssa McKiernan delivered a nice through pass from midfield to Kebba, who drove it into the right side past Simansky. Kebba was on the other end of the scoring in the

19th minute, taking a low pass near the left sideline off a corner and sending a chip to the far post, where defender Emily Nelson drove it in to make it 3-0. “That’s what we’re hoping to do, is beat people on the outside,” said Bellarmine Prep head coach Joe Waters. “Get people going on the overlap, get crosses in and get shots in.” The Rams, meanwhile, had little opportunities to score in the first half, but their best chance was snuffed out when Lions keeper Sidney Roberts dove to stop Payton Costello’s free kick from 20 yards out in the 16th min-


ute. McKiernan gave the Lions an insurmountable 4-0 lead in the 59th minute, getting free on the left side of the box and sending a low shot past Simansky and into the right side. Senior Hope Fleckner added a goal off a free kick from 35 yards out in the 71st minute, and senior Maizy Medley capped the scoring with a goal in the 79th minute for the Lions. “It was a good start for us,” Waters said. “I was pleased with the clean sheet. I thought we scored some good goals.” The Lions’ dominated possession for much of the

game, forcing Simansky to make 10 saves in addition to the six goals surrendered. As they venture into the Narrows 4A schedule, Kebba noted that her squad will be relying on their unity to be successful.

“We’re all best friends and we work together,” Kebba said. “We love each other on and off the field, but at the same time we’re able to get on each other and be competitive, and try to beat out each other. That’s how we get better.”

SPORTSWATCH LOGGERS END 20-GAME LOSING STREAK The Puget Sound football teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s much-maligned defense forced five turnovers to help earn a 42-33 win at Whittier College on Sept. 21, ending the Loggersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 20-game losing streak. Jacob Wuesthoff led the Loggersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; defense with 17 tackles while adding an interception, while cornerback Connor Savage added an interception and a fumble recovery. The Loggers also tallied 14 tackles for loss, as Mike Raub came up with 4.5 tackles for loss and two sacks. Braden Foley led the Loggersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; offense, going 16-for31 for 233 yards and three touchdowns. He got UPS on the board in the first quarter, tying the game 7-7 on a three-yard touchdown run. He connected with Josh Gilbert â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who led the Loggers with four catches for 63 yards â&#x20AC;&#x201C; on a three-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter, and Kupono Park gave UPS a 21-7 lead at the break with the first of his two touchdown runs. Foley connected with Bryson Calma on a 19-yard touchdown pass in

the third quarter to make it 28-14, and hit Peter Bell for a 15-yard score late in the fourth to make it 42-25. Wuesthoffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defensive performance was good enough to earn him the Northwest Conference Defensive Player of the Week. Jeff Walton boomed a 74-yard punt in the fourth quarter, with the Loggers nursing a slim 28-25 lead, as part of his strong performance â&#x20AC;&#x201C; featuring three punts inside the opponentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 20-yard line â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to earn the Special Teams Player of the Week.

LUTES STAY UNDEFEATED The Pacific Lutheran menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soccer team earned two hard-fought wins last weekend to move up to sixth in the most recent Division III Top 25 polls. The Lutes won 1-0 over George Fox on Sept. 21, as defender Taylor Jackson scored his first career goal off Diego Acevesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; corner in the 90th minute to earn the dramatic victory. The Lutes outshot the Bruins 22-14 in the contest, and keeper Joe Rayburn made four saves for PLU. Jackson struck again the next day, helping the Lutes to a 2-1 win over Pacific

Jackson scored from 20 yards out in the 73rd minute after Pacificâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ian Farley had scored in the 57th minute to give his squad the lead. The Lutesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Tyler Bennett then provided the game-winner in the 84th minute off Joe Oleginskiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assist. Pacific Lutheran will look to continue their impressive streak when they return home to host Linfield on Sept. 28 at 2:30 p.m. and Willamette on Sept. 29 at 2:30 p.m.

36..,9::>,,7 THROUGH NWC 67,5,9: The 15th-ranked University of Puget Sound volleyball team swept both Linfield and George Fox in three sets at home last weekend to move to 2-0 to start conference play.

LUTES FOOTBALL MOVES TO 2-0 The Pacific Lutheran football team tallied 474 yards of offense in cruising to a convincing 35-14 win at Redlands on Sept. 21. The 15th-ranked Lutes

scored on two first-quarter drives to go up 14-0, as Dalton Ritchey hit Lucas Sontra for a 12-yard touchdown and running back Niko Madison scored from one yard out. Ritchey was the catalyst again for PLU, going 19-for34 for 306 yards with two touchdowns, with two interceptions. The score stood at 14-0 until the fourth quarter, when the Lutesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Dalton Darmody fell on a fumble in the end zone to make it 21-0. Darmody also tallied a teamhigh seven tackles along with Ben Kaestner and Jordan Patterson. Ritchey then connected with wide receiver Kyle Warner â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who led the Lutes with five catches for 137 yards â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for touchdowns of 41 and 32 yards later in the quarter, the latter giving PLU a commanding 35-7 lead. Madison led the Lutes with 16 carries for 118 yards. Pacific Lutheran returns to action when they travel to take on Wisconsin-Eau Claire in their final nonleague contest on Sept. 28 at 10 a.m. PT.

North Thurston answered when Ryan Mets hit Brandon Morgan for an 11-yard score to make it 7-7 on the first play of the second quarter. The Rams took a 13-7 lead when Josh Ramirez scored on a one-yard run with 7:21 left in the first half, two plays after a botched punt snap gave North Thurston the ball on Fossâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 2-yard line. The Falcons looked to take back momentum before the half after backto-back nice runs by quarterback Isaiah Littlejohn and running back Devon Clark â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who led the Falcons with 15 carries for 99 yards â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but another botched snap resulted in a loss of 18 yards. Littlejohn narrowly missed hitting Bacaari Kiner for a 34-yard touchdown on fourth down. But Littlejohn later gave the Falcons a 14-13 lead with 2:15 left in the third when he scored on a threeyard run. The Falcons had several chances to add on in the fourth quarter, but Littlejohn was intercepted on three straight drives â&#x20AC;&#x201C; two coming deep in North Thurston territory. The Rams took a 19-14 lead early in the fourth when Mets hit Luke Yanna for a 27-yard touchdown, and added a 21-yard field goal with 6:12 left in the game. The Falconsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; defense â&#x20AC;&#x201C; headed by the front four of Pesefea, Felix Atoa, Ben Faalavaau and 340-pound Tray Williams â&#x20AC;&#x201C; gave the offense the late chance to tie with a key stop, as they limited North Thurston to less than 200 total yards of offense on the night. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve really built a (defensive) line anchored by (Pesefea) and Tray,â&#x20AC;? Johnson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They take

on some blocks.â&#x20AC;? And despite the bitter end, Pesefea and his teammates are beginning to see the positive changes under Johnson, after three disappointing seasons. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The past three years at Foss weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been dealing with adversity,â&#x20AC;? Pesefea said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve finally figured it out my senior year. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just got to learn how to handle itâ&#x20AC;Śyou never know the outcome.â&#x20AC;?

Nelson, the Warriorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; main source of offense on the night, was shut down for the most part in the second half, finishing with 28 carries for 140 yards in the game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He is a talented athlete, and he brings it every single play,â&#x20AC;? Nevin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We really tried to do our best to corral him with our safeties and linebackers.â&#x20AC;? By Jeremy Helling

ing drive, and had 18 carries for 119 yards by halftime. Nelson added an interception to with 3:48 left in the first half, wrestling the ball away from Fife tight end Kaleb McGary to snuff out the Trojansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; drive in Clover Park territory. After going to the break scoreless, the Warriors looked as if they would put up the first points when quarterback Keila Pritchard connected with Damien Davis â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who finished with six catches for 105 yards â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to the Trojansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 1-yard line. But Fifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defense stood firm on three straight plays, and another botched snap on the field goal attempt forced Pritchard to scramble and fire a desperation pass, which was intercepted by Colin Mozzone. Fife then marched 84 yards in 14 plays, settling for a field goal with 4:13 left in the third quarter. But the Warriors responded, as Pritchard hit Davis for a 33-yard gain on the next drive and Nelson scored on an eight-yard run to make it 7-3. The Trojans struck right back, as crucial penalties helped them move downfield and Keanu Songcuan regained the lead, scoring on a 22-yard sweep. The Trojans made it 17-7 early in the fourth quarter when Austin Woods scored on an 11-yard sweep on the right side. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We talked to our guys about just taking it to them instead of just waiting to

In an early league showdown between Fife and Clover Park, it came down to the defenses. The Trojans made a few more defensive plays, and got a couple of key scores in the second half to take a 17-7 win over the Warriors on Sept. 19 at Harry Lang Stadium. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a defensive battle,â&#x20AC;? said Clover Park head coach Jon Randall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were able to stop us when they had to, and we werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t able to stop them.â&#x20AC;? Both defenses stood tall in the first half, as the Warriors stopped the Trojans on fourth down at their own 25-yard line on the first drive of the game, but then botched a field goal attempt after driving to the Trojansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 9-yard line on the legs of running back Cordell Nelson. The senior tallied six carries for 66 yards â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including a 48-yard scamper â&#x20AC;&#x201C; on the Warriorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; open-

The Tigers placed six runners in the top ten finishers on the day, with sophomore Zach Lam taking third place and Kyle Hammond claiming fourth. Stadium seniors Ben Manning, Mark Harris and Trevor Dent took sixth, seventh, and ninth place, respectively. Lincoln junior Mecca Amen finished a minute behind Glackin-Coley to take second place, while the Abesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Zachary Bennett finished tenth. Wilson sophomore Alex Gayvoronski took fifth place, while sophomore teammate Andrew Bone finished eighth. Competing without their top two runners, the Stadium girls still placed six runners in the top ten, as junior Skye Chen-Johnson won the race in 17 minutes and 46 seconds â&#x20AC;&#x201C; edging out teammate Miri Hyman by three seconds. But the Tigers utilized their teamwork, as Chen-Johnson, Hyman and freshman Heather Phipps â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who took fourth place â&#x20AC;&#x201C; ran side by side for the early portion of the race to maintain a good pace. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We planned it out and worked together the first mile,â&#x20AC;? said Chen-Johnson, who tallied her first individual victory in her high school career. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We tried to stick to (the plan), and it worked out.â&#x20AC;? The Wilson girls had a solid showing as well, as senior Rachel Russell, sophomore Christina Requa and junior Hunter Fruehling-Thomas took third, sixth and eighth place, respectively.

Turn to pg review . B4 for must-see s of two TFF film s.


By Kathleen Merryman

There will, of course, be zombies, or at least the expectation of zombies amid the gracious retirement living in a place called Laurel Grove. There will be young people making sense of real life by punching old prejudices in the nose. There will be pasts that return to haunt, and futures that turn out the light of hope. And there will be the story, in eight minutes, of science class alums of a turreted high school averting the end of the world. All that will be ours, easy as 1-2-3, at the eighth annual Tacoma Film Festival running Oct. 3-10.

Advance tickets are for sale at The Grand Cinema, 606 S. Fawcett Ave. For more information, check or call (253) 5934474.




Based out of The Grand Cinema, Tacomaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beloved non-profit indie-hub, the festival will show 123 films, some as short as two minutes. It will bring film folk to town, and encourage them to talk story among themselves â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and with the fans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;G.B.F.â&#x20AC;? screenwriter George Northy, for example, will meet the audience at the opening night reception and screening at Annie Wright School ($30 gala and film; $11 film only). Tacoma Weekly Managing Editor Matt Nagle discusses the movie with Grand Cinema Senior Projectionist Lisa Fruichantie on Page B4.) Warren Etheredge will lead â&#x20AC;&#x153;Know the Score,â&#x20AC;? a free filmmakersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; workshop on soundtracks, open to everybody, at 10 a.m. Oct. 5 in the Grandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lower lobby. TFF staff is using Facebook to broadcast the filmmakersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; appearances, and generate buzz. â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Euphoniaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; plays on Friday, Oct. 4 at the Grand Cinema at 4:40 p.m. Filmmakers will be in attendance!â&#x20AC;? they posted this week. The festival has been earning respect, celebs and entries, said TFF Director Laura Marshall, who took the job a year ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are getting about 200 more submissions than the first and second festivals,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are generating a much larger filmmaker base, building a reputation in the film community in the Northwest, on the West Coast, nationally, even internationally. This year, we got 100 submissions that are not from the U.S. A lot from Australia.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Woody,â&#x20AC;? a 10-minute animated story, is one of them, and one of 400 shorts submitted. Marshall answered the great film fes-







tival question: Where do all those shorts come from? And why, when we never see them in mainstream movie houses? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Shorts are a way of honing skills,â&#x20AC;? Marshall said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re also a way of pitching films to producers. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in the audience and you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like one, wait 10 minutes and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be another. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quote me on this, but I think â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Woodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; might be nominated for an Academy Award.â&#x20AC;? We persuaded, and she agreed, to predict. After all, TFF has been a good omen for its shorts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Woodyâ&#x20AC;? has been short listed for an Australian Academy - Cinema Television Arts Award this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore,â&#x20AC;? its 2011 best animated film winner, went on to earn the Oscar for best animated short. Marshall has a few more Aussie favorites. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Telegram Man,â&#x20AC;? a 14-minute drama

about Bill Williams, the man who delivered the worst news of all in a farming community during World War II is one. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Antarctica: A Year on the Iceâ&#x20AC;? is another. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has a link to Tacoma,â&#x20AC;? she said. One of the people featured in the documentary has relatives here, and he has been e-mailing Marshall so she can get them to come to the screening. Though accidental and peripheral, that Northwest connection fits one of the festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With feature-length films, we focused on the Pacific Northwest, to let that shine through,â&#x20AC;? Marshall said. Look for glimpses of Purdy and the Key Peninsula and Dayna Hansonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mockumentary, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Improvement Club.â&#x20AC;? Consider the role that pets, including one from Tacoma, play in our lives, even in their after-lives in Amy Finkelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s documentary, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Furever.â&#x20AC;? Make a break from a Puget Sound nursing

artisan brew while watching the sunset over the Puget Sound. Chef Joshua Corcoran and his culinary team will pair each course with a handcrafted beer from the Harmon. Special guest Danny Sink from the United States Golf Association will be in house to bring everyone up to speed about the 2015 U.S. Open.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;ZERO CHARISMAâ&#x20AC;?

A festival like this is as much about the conversations as the films, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where the economic impact blooms. The Grand encourages schmoozing, and suggests doing it at sponsorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; establishments, including Maxwellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Restaurant, Farelliâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pizza and Savor. Locals, including members of the 253 Film Collective, will likely have haunts of their own. Expect to hear a good deal of movie talk all over town â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and feel free to ask to listen, or join, in the discussions. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what puts the fizz in a festival. Tacoma Weekly will partner with Marshall and Zach Powers, director of marketing, to add some of that fizz to the Internet. During TFFâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eight days, look for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Behind the Screensâ&#x20AC;? featurettes daily at and, and on our Facebook pages. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll introduce you to the people who craft this festival, tell the tale of the poster and meet local filmmakers. Powers will make daily suggestions on â&#x20AC;&#x153;If You Liked.â&#x20AC;? If you liked â&#x20AC;&#x153;Perks of Being a Wallflower,â&#x20AC;? for example, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s betting youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll enjoy â&#x20AC;&#x153;G.B.F.â&#x20AC;?

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

Support For Our Native Community With more than 4,400 Puyallup tribal members locally and across the country, and an Indian community of 22,000 in the tricounty area, the Puyallup Tribe of Indians takes great pride in continuing its ancestral ways by caring for all of its membership. The Tribe stays united and strong by ensuring every member has the opportunity for good health, a safe and clean home, educational advancement and financial security. When it comes to social services for its membership, the Puyallup Tribe stands as a model for all governments. During 2012, the Tribe spent more than $100 million on social service programs such as funeral assistance, energy and crisis assistance, small business start-up grants, assistance to members who are veterans, and per capita distributions. The majority of these funds are subsequently spent in the local economy. Caring for its elders is a top priority for the Tribe, with $3.6 million spent last year on elder care services. A major way the Puyallups treasure their elders is through the Elders Center House of Respect. The beautifully constructed center opened in 2009 to offer a variety of health and recreational options for Puyallup elders over 45 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a dining hall, stateof-the-art kitchen, relaxation areas, workout facility, spa, massage room, activity rooms for classes such as quilting and crafting, and a tranquil outdoor â&#x20AC;&#x153;Spirit Garden.â&#x20AC;? Youth are a top priority for the Tribe as well. The Tribe works in many ways to proactively instill positive values in its youth as early as possible, and a focal point of this effort is the Puyallup Tribal Community Center. During the past year, the Center underwent a $7 million renovation. This nearly completed facility is approximately 34,000 square feet, including a 15,000-square-foot gymnasium and other areas for youth activities. The facility will also accommodate gatherings for meetings, weddings, funerals, and cultural activities. The Tribeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chief Leschi School offers a Native-focused academic environment for children in pre-kindergarten through high school. In 2011, approximately 770 students were enrolled in grades K-12 and 130 in preschool classes. The school was founded in 1976 with the mission to â&#x20AC;&#x153;educate students in an atmosphere of mutual trust and respect,â&#x20AC;? to promote a lifelong love of learning, and to

inspire in them a commitment to being valuable, contributing citizens of both their tribal and civic communities. The Tribe recently invested more than $8 million for athletic fields accommodating football, soccer, track and field events, with synthetic grass on the infield and natural grass on the outfield. The Puyallup Tribe also ensures that higher education funding is available for its membership. In 2011, the Tribe assisted more than 285 Tribal members with tuition assistance, books, and tutoringâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;many of these members attended local colleges and universities. Educational incentives are also available for members with good grades and attendance. Everyone deserves a comfortable home to live in, and the Puyallup Tribe and the Puyallup Nation Housing Authority strive to provide decent, safe and sanitary housing for qualified low-income tribal members and other Indians. During 2011, the Housing Authority spent more than $7 million on providing housing assistance to 150 households, which included nearly $4 million in construction costs for the Northeast Gym/Commons building, which is part of the recently completed Phase 1 Longhouse project in Northeast Tacoma. This Longhouse project provided 10 new townhomes built in an energy efficient manner (LEED Platinum status) and culturally relevant to the community. This visionary project has received national and international recognition. Phase II will be complete in May, to house another 10 families. The Tribeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grandview Early Learning Center provides quality and culturally appropriate early childhood care for Native children in the community and during 2011 served more than 100 families and 200 children. The Tribeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Health Authority opened in 1974 and today offers a wide variety of services annually to a patient population of more than 9,000 from more than 200 tribes. Services provided include medical, dental, pharmacy, laboratory, radiology, mental health and counseling, tobacco cessation programs, problem gambling programs, and alcohol and drug treatment programs, In a time of reduced federal, state, and local government spending, the Puyallup Tribe has created a self-sustaining model for its government, its people and the future of the larger community throughout the reservation and beyond.

SYMBIOTIC. Jason Sobottka’s “Deer with Pitcher Plants” is one of the stars the 11th Annual Juried Local Art Exhibition on view at the Gallery at TCC through Oct. 18.

By Dave R. Davison


he Gallery at Tacoma Community College is showing its 11th Annual Juried Local Art Exhibition. The TCC show is the best chance to view some of the finest of what area artists, (ranging from Seattle to Olympia), have to offer. There are other shows of local art: the annual art show at the state fair in Puyallup, for example, is almost totally wide open to artists of every skill level (which is part of the charm of the show). At the other end of the spectrum, there is Tacoma Art Museum’s Northwest Biennial. TAM’s definition of the geographic boundaries of the northwest, however, includes Montana and California and the curatorial screens are so finely-meshed that their “local” show comes across as cerebral and highfalutin. TCC’s annual show of local art is in the Goldilocks spot: not as wide open as the state fair, not as

hoity-toity at TAM’s biennial. This year’s offering contains work by more that 40 artists working in the standard range of media: painting, drawing, print, sculpture, ceramics and photography. What follows is a mini-tour of some of the highlights of the show. There is so much to see that it would take a small book to engage every item on display. Painters make up the majority of artists represented in the exhibition. There are small, intimate works that invite the viewer in for closer inspection, and there are gigantic canvases that take up huge chunks of wall space. Nathan Barnes is one of the latter with his large, slightly surreal scene of a possible hobo in an industrial district contemplating a young woman in a blue dress who appears in a state of ecstasy. Tacoma artist William Turner also works at a fairly large scale

with his semi-abstract landscapes like “Caliente.” Former TCC faculty member Frank Dippolito presents a series of watercolors that are impressions of atmospheric conditions and moody cloud formations. Thomas Nguivoum, originally from central Africa, is a life-long painter. His “The Flute Player” is a charming scene of an Orpheus-like flute player surrounded by sculptural animals. Exotic trees and round, thatch-roofed huts are in the background. Nguivoum’s colors are a rich, murky blend that creates a twilight atmosphere. Alain Clerc’s obsession with big slices of watermelon pays off big with his delightful “Green Dog,” a big, green doggie that is bursting with good cheer as it bites into a big slice of melon. The painter Jason Sobottka is perhaps the star of the show with “Deer with Pitcher Plants.” This

horizontal canvas depicts several deer with unusual plant forms growing from their backs. Some areas are left as if unfinished. Some areas are broken into colorful facets. One trapezoidal space is done in purple glitter, a stunt that would seem over the top if attempted by a less surefooted painter. Sobottka is so balanced and selfassured, however, that he can pull off such high wire tactics successfully. Amongst the drawings in the show, one of the finest is “Lost” by KoreanAmerican artist Patsy Surh O’Connell. This is a wonderful portrait of a crow set amidst a surrounding of dried leaves. Everything is crisp and concise and vivid. Former University of Puget Sound instructor Bill Colby is Tacoma’s master of the woodcut print. His several prints in the show feature natural wood grains, images of pine

boughs and birds. His use of colored inks makes his works festive. Sculptors include the likes of Ron Hinson, Gerry Sperry and Nathan Barnes all of whom have contributed wall-mounted, three-dimensional work. David Murdach’s “Drone (the magnificent killing machine),” composed of a variety of fancy, found objects, looks like a Victorian era rocket ship. Marilyn Mahoney’s “New Orleans Band” is a row of spontaneously formed, bronze-cast figurines of musicians and marchers in a parade. They seem like rustic antiques; loose and lumpy. The inclusion of a funny little cat in the procession is a whimsical touch. There are a few artists in the show who work in ceramics: Michael Topolski has three eastern-influenced, lidded vessels. Two of these have the rustic,

random glaze resulting from molten ash flow of a wood fired kiln. Laura Hoivik has several of her comical ceramic animals in this exhibit. Her free-form style and use of colorful glazes and playful patterns hearken back to the “funk movement” that was prevalent among some ceramics artists of the 1960s and 70s. Her work is comparable to that of Clayton Bailey, one of the foremost proponents of funk art. This is by no means an exhaustive survey. There are many more highlights to see in this show. TCC’s Juried Local Art Exhibition should be an annual pilgrimage for everyone interested in getting a glimpse of what’s coming out of little studios in our midst. The show runs through Oct. 18.

7!.4%$ -!. Drama diva Caprice (Xosha Roquemore, left) and

blonde bombshell Fawcett (Sasha Pieterse) are both determined to have Tanner (Michael J. Willet, middle) for her very own gay best friend. "Y -ATT .AGLE

The Tacoma Film Festival has a delightful comedy lined up for its opening night gala screening on Oct. 3, one thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sure to set a tone of fun and excitement for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third annual festival. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s called â&#x20AC;&#x153;G.B.F.â&#x20AC;? (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gay Best Friendâ&#x20AC;?) and it premiered as an Official Selection at the Tribeca Film Festival this past April to rave reviews. If you enjoy classic high school comedies like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sixteen Candles,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fast Times at Ridgemont High,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Clueless,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Romy and Michelleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s High School Reunionâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mean Girls,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;G.B.F.â&#x20AC;? will definitely be added to that list. At North Gateway High in the heart of suburbia, U.S.A., a buzz circulates around the school over the latest accessory every popular girl should have â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a G.B.F. When the queens of the high schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s social hierarchy get wind of this new musthave, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all out war among them to be the first to get one. Bossy, blonde bombshell Fawcett (Sasha Pieterse), drama club diva Caprice (Xosha Roquemore) and Mormon good girl â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Shley (Andrea Bowen) scheme and conspire to sniff out their gay prey from among the student body, and end up finding someone who doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite meet the glamorous stereotype they were expecting. Enter BFFs Tanner (Michael J. Willett) and Brent (Paul Iacono), both of whom are gay but not â&#x20AC;&#x153;outâ&#x20AC;? to anyone â&#x20AC;&#x201C; yet. Tanner wishes to keep it that way, but his more flamboyant pal Brent has different ideas, believing that his social standing would skyrocket were he to become the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s #1 (and only) gay status symbol. From there things spiral into a hilarious comedy where oversharing on social media really can get you into all kinds of trouble and being yourself is sometimes the hardest lesson to learn. Lisa Fruichantie is lead projectionist at The Grand and she also works at the new Rainbow Center/Oasis Youth head-

quarters on Pacific Avenue. She said that out of all the films submitted for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tacoma Film Festival, â&#x20AC;&#x153;G.B.F.â&#x20AC;? stood out in numerous ways. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The production quality, the acting, the contentâ&#x20AC;Ś all of it. It really stood alone,â&#x20AC;? she said. Full of witty quips, hip one-liners and sharp dialog, â&#x20AC;&#x153;G.B.F.â&#x20AC;? includes its share of dramatic, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whoa!â&#x20AC;? moments as well in its insightful look into the lives of teenagers in the 21st century. Its story is universal, one that all audiences can relate to thanks to the filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talented writer George Northy (his first screenplay) and direction by Darren Stein (writer and director of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jawbreakerâ&#x20AC;?). Northy will be in attendance at the opening night gala to talk about the film and take questions from the audience. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the person who wrote it all and has the inside scoop,â&#x20AC;? Fruichantie said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m curious to hear what he has to say that led him to write this movie.â&#x20AC;? Fruichantie said that the magic of â&#x20AC;&#x153;G.B.F.â&#x20AC;? is in its ability to create a means by which communities can talk about the issues highlighted in the film. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Grandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing partnership with Oasis and the Rainbow Center allows us in our own community to have that conversation,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;G.B.F.â&#x20AC;? is a smart film in its portrayal of how gay youth, and gay people in general for that matter, often struggle to find their place in life, and in its insightful commentary on how gay men in particular are still generally perceived in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s society. This film challenges stereotypes across the board and not just in how gay people are seen but also in how we see each other such that even the popular rich girl in school may not be as shallow as she seems on the surface. Tacoma Film Festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opening night gala and movie takes place at Annie Wright School, 827 N. Tacoma Ave. For tickets, visit www.TacomaFilmFestival. com, at The Grand Cinema box office or by calling (253) 593-4474.


342!)'(4 3(//4%2 â&#x20AC;&#x153;Her Aim Is Trueâ&#x20AC;? explores the life and art

of 96-year-old photographer Jini Dellaccio, with a screening set for 6:45 p.m. on Oct. 5 at the Grand Cinema. "Y %RNEST ! *ASMIN

It was the early 1960s. The British Invasion had yet to infect Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s teens with incurable Beatlemania. Here in Tacoma, kids had an obsession of their own, though. They couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get enough of local garage-rock legends in the making, the Fabulous Wailers, and their addictive party jam, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Louie Louie.â&#x20AC;? What would later be dubbed as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Original Northwest Soundâ&#x20AC;? was in full swing. And the seemingly unlikely person who documented that golden age of regional rock was Jini Dellaccio, a selftaught photographer who was old enough to be many of those early rockersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; mom. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was one of the pioneers of rock nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; roll photography,â&#x20AC;? Seattle radio legend Pat Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Day declares near the beginning of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Her Aim Is True,â&#x20AC;? among the most buzzworthy films being shown at this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tacoma Film Festival. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also safe to say she addressed it in a brand new way, different than (Annie) Liebowitz and different than anyone else.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Her Aim Is Trueâ&#x20AC;? will be screened at 6:45 p.m. on Oct. 5 at Tacomaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grand Cinema, 606 S. Fawcett Ave. It details how Dellaccio captured some of the most enduring images of early Northwest rock, from that iconic black-and-white portrait from the Sonicsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Boomâ&#x20AC;? album â&#x20AC;&#x201C; shot near Dellaccioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s former home in Gig Harbor â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to early concert shots of the Yardbirds, the Who and the Rolling Stones. Dellaccioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work is bold and visionary, an evolutionary leap in the art of rock photography. Yet the 96-year-old trailblazer is not nearly as well known as Jim Marshal, Charles Peterson and other celebrity rock photogs that followed. British director Karen Whitehead hopes

her film will help change that. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Her work is beautiful. I think sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an undiscovered American master,â&#x20AC;? said Whitehead. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I found out she was 92 and very active and had a story to tell, I decided someone ought to tell her story soon. Then I realized thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just such a rich story of the Northwest music scene, but I very much wanted to see it through Jiniâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eyes.â&#x20AC;? The film is an excellent document of Northwest rock in its infancy. Providing context to Dellaccioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s story, we see bassist Buck Ormsby revisit Tacoma Armory, a site where two of his bands, Little Bill & the Bluenotes and the Wailers, threw teen dances in the late â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;50s and early â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;60s. Later, Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Day recalls putting on some of the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first big rock shows at Seattleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Coliseum. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We needed somebody taking pictures at our shows because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing some things that are just extraordinary,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The newspapers have a few pictures, but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not appropriately recording those moments.â&#x20AC;? History lesson aside, Whitehead hopes viewers will be inspired by Dellaccioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enthusiasm for her craft, the people she photographed and for diving into the unknown. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What I was drawn to was this idea of this woman who was doing it when no one else was,â&#x20AC;? Whitehead said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a woman who â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at 17, graduating high school in 1935 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; went on the road as a jazz saxophone player. Who was doing that? Not many women. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then the way she took on photography: She was always reinventing herself, and I felt strongly that that is a story of great inspiration to anyone interested in following their dreams and creativity. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great life lesson that is relevant today.â&#x20AC;?

Make a Scene Your Local Guide To South Sound Music

Arthur Migliazza: Boogie-woogie bluesman heads to Memphis

Friday, September 27, 2013 • • Section B • Page 5

Live Music





MAGIC FINGERS. Arthur Migliazza will perform at an South Sound Blues Association fundraiser on Sunday. By Ernest A. Jasmin


rthur Migliazza moved to Seattle last year, and already he’s developed a reputation as one of the region’s best boogie-woogie blues piano players. In July, he won in the solo category of South Sound Blues Association’s Back to Beale Street competition at Freedom Fair, earning him the chance to compete at the prestigious International Blues Challenge in Memphis next January. And on Sunday, Sept. 29, he and group winner, the Randy Oxford Band, will play an SSBA show aimed to raise funds for the trip. The bill will also include local favorites Mark Riley Band, BlenisEhly Band, Rafael Tranquilino Band and Blues County Sheriff, with music starting at 4 p.m. Recently, we caught up with Migliazza to find out more. Tacoma Weekly: Have you competed in the IBC before? Arthur Migliazza: I actually competed in 2010, and I was one of the finalists in Memphis. So this is like “Rocky 2,” the rematch. TW: What does an opportunity like this mean to artists? Migliazza: First of all, it’s a chance to be out in front of people that are involved in booking festivals and booking cruise ships and record industry people. A lot of them are the judges, so that’s a big thing. And then, if I win, I believe I get to make a record. TW: You’re relatively new to the Northwest. How did you wind up out here? Migliazza: I’m originally from Maryland. Then my family moved to Arizona when I was 11, and I lived there, basically, until I was 29, and then moved to New York City. I lived there for two years, met my fiance and moved here, because she’s from Kirkland. TW: So you chased a lady out here. Migliazza: (Laughs) Right. I’m really happy with being out here because the music scene is so much more rewarding than it ever was in New

York City. There’s a way bigger scene in the Northwest than there is in New York or on the East Coast. TW: What first drew you to the boogie-woogie style of blues, and when did you start playing? Migliazza: I’ve been playing boogie-woogie since I was 10, and I started playing piano when I was 9. I really took to it, and my teacher was also really into blues and stuff, and she gave me a little blues piece to learn, out of a little kid’s music book, and I really liked it. I remember, also, watching “Great Balls of Fire” with Dennis Quaid. Those parts where he plays not necessarily the rock n’ roll stuff that he became famous for, but at the beginning where he’s playing the blues stuff. I was like, “I want to play like that.” TW: Do you have a CD you’re working on now? Migliazza: Yeah, I got a lot of help from Kickstarter. I was able to reach out to a lot of supporters and got some generous support, which has made it possible for me to make an awesome record … We’ve had two days in the studio so far with the band. I had a huge all-star cast, the who’s who of Seattle. TW: Who are you working with? Migliazza: I’m working with Keith Lowe on BLACKFISH (83 MIN, PG-13) Fri 9/27: 2:10, 5:00, 7:00 Sat 9/28-Sun 9/29: 11:50am, 2:10, 5:00, 7:00 Mon 9/30-Thu 10/3: 2:10, 5:00, 7:00

the bass. On drums I had Eric Eagle, Andy Ross and Kelly Van Camp. So I had three different drummers. On guitar I had Jeff Fielder, Bill Molloy and then my fiance (Laura Martin). I had Sean Divine play harmonica on one song, and then I had Grant Dermody. I’m gonna have Suzy Thompson – who is a fiddle player in Portland, one of the world’s best. She’s gonna put a fiddle part on one of the songs. And then a friend of mine who plays Zydeco accordion in New Orleans, Sunpie Barnes, he’s putting an accordion track on one of the songs. TW: So you got to do it up this time? Migliazza: Exactly, it’s like a dream come true. I’m so happy with this and it was really meaningful because a lot of people are supporting it and counting on me, and they’re excited about it. It’s kind of like a turning point for me. It’s gonna be, by far, the best thing I’ve ever put out.

BULLETIN BOARD “ARSENIC AND OLD LACE” The Lakewood Playhouse is proud to present the first show of its 75th anniversary season – Joseph Kesserling’s wonderful black comedy with a little extra kick: “Arsenic and Old Lace.” Play times are 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays. The show runs through Oct. 13. This show marks the playhouse’s first presentation with its auditorium’s new chairs. They are built for comfort and include lower back support as well as cup holders for your soft drinks and popcorn. Presented with views from all sides, in the Lakewood Playhouse’s unique “in the round” seating, this production of “Arsenic and Old Lace” will help you feel as if you are inside the show. About the show: A drama critic learns on his wedding day that his beloved maiden aunts are homicidal maniacs, and that insanity runs in his family… along with a fondness for serving arsenic-spiked elderberry wine. The show returns to the Lakewood Playhouse stage for the first time since 1997. Info: AL-MUTANABBI STREET STARTS HERE The traveling exhibit of artist books, created to defy an Iraqi bomb, runs now through Oct. 31 in the Collins Memorial Library of the University of Puget Sound. On March 5, 2007, in the middle of the Iraq War, a car bomb devastated the literary and intellectual heart of Baghdad, ripping through booksellers, cafes, and tea shops, killing 30 people and wounding more than 100. San Francisco poet and artist Beau Beausoleil and British scholar Sarah Bodman

responded to the devastation by asking artists and poets from around the world to create artists’ books as a show of solidarity with those slain and injured. The result is a remarkable exhibition of some 200 handmade artists’ books and single-sheet broadsides. The co-curators say the display aims to “pay homage to the truth that can rest between any two covers,” and to reflect “the ultimate futility of those who try to erase thought.” Collins Memorial Library at University of Puget Sound is proud to be hosting the national traveling exhibit Al-Mutanabbi Street Starts Here this fall. (Al-Mutanabbi, the bombed street, was named after Iraqi poet al-Mutanabbi, the Arab world’s equivalent of Shakespeare). The show includes more than 50 works from the original collection.
