October is Domestic Violence Action Month. Domestic violence is a universal problem, and Vashon Island is not immune.
Community Events, October 2014
The community council, while well-intentioned in its hope to update the Vashon Town Plan, should think carefully before taking on the task. The council should nail down how much help King County will provide and consider what it realistically will be able to accomplish by 2016. An out-of-date town plan that was done well 20 years ago would be better than one updated with changes that were not carefully considered and fully vetted by Vashon residents.
The Friends of the Vashon Pool have some ambitious ideas and little evidence or plans yet to prove their ideas are financially viable. But the idea of a friends group for the pool seems obvious as a way to take this underutilized community resource to the next level.
I am Captain Joe, and many of you know me as the head of the Keepers of Point Robinson, or as a member of the small — and getting smaller — public at the meetings of the Vashon Park District. This is not about parks, nor Point Robinson, but about Vashon Community Care (VCC) and its foundation, for I sit as treasurer of both of those organizations.
I’m sitting on a wobbly green plastic resin chair, on the front lawn, in the dark. Across the harbor, pale-yellow lights of a distant cabin echo on black water, undulating pillars of light, a dozen stilled comets.
