It's been an all-out race to the finish line, and despite being the wettest winter on record, construction on the new Vashon Center for the Arts is wrapping up on budget and mostly on time. Last Friday, Sellen Construction, the general contractor for the project, turned over the keys to Vashon Center for the Arts (VCA) Executive Director Molly Reed, one week before the promised opening of the building to the community at large at 10 a.m. Saturday.

The parents of two Vashon students are suing the Vashon Island School District, superintendent and multiple administrators on behalf of their children, alleging administrators failed to address and stop daily harassment and discrimination.
Vashon Center for the Arts (VCA) unveiled its new arts center, the Katherine L. White Hall, on Saturday. The event began at 10 a.m. with remarks by VCA Director Molly Reed and a ribbon-cutting by islander Kay White, 95, who donated the millions of dollars with which the project was largely funded. The public was then free to roam the entirety of the building and ask questions of the volunteers stationed throughout.
The Vashon school district's technology and facilities levy is passing with nearly 70 percent of island voters in favor of the measure as of midnight Tuesday.
A gray whale that was reported dead off of Vashon last week likely died of starvation, whale experts say, though it is not yet clear if there were additional causes that contributed to the animal's condition.
