After three years as the founder and director of Shape Up Vashon, I have turned the reins over to my successor, Laura Wishik.
Community Events, October 2014
Halloween is nearly upon us along with that scary yearly ritual: the family gathering. Recently, my father and I traveled back to our ancestral home to visit his one surviving brother and to haunt the inhabitants of the places we used to live.
Joe Fitzgibbon, the incumbent who is being challenged for his seat in the House, is the clear best choice for Vashon and for the 34th District.
October is Domestic Violence Action Month. Domestic violence is a universal problem, and Vashon Island is not immune.
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 An out-of-date town plan that was done well 20 years ago would be better than one updated with changes that were not carefully considered and fully vetted by Vashon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.
