Ripcord opens Mar 29 at Phoenix Theatre

Tuesday, March 19, 2019

Next up at Edmond’s Phoenix Theatre is Ripcord by David Lindsay-Abaire, directed by Eric Lewis. Called “tastily sweet-and-sour… great fun” by Time Out (New York), Ripcord is a side-splitting comedy that delivers a dose of emotional substance.

Set at the Bristol Place Senior Living Facility, where the cantankerous Abby is forced to share her quarters with newly-arrived Marilyn. Abby has no choice but to get rid of the infuriatingly chipper woman by any means necessary. Starting as a harmless bet between the old women the dangerous game of one-upmanship reveals not just the tenacity of these worthy opponents, but also deeper truths that each would rather remain hidden.

Directed by Eric Lewis, the ensemble includes Thomas Glass, Melanie Calderwood, James Lynch, Susan Connors, Renee Gilbert and Gregory Kleciak.

Performance Dates: March 29-April 20, 2019
Performance Times: Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm, Sundays at 2:00pm
Location: The Phoenix Theatre, 9673 Firdale Avenue, Edmonds 98020
Tickets are $25 for adults. $20 for seniors / students/ military.

Tickets or information online, or by phone at 206-533-2000.

There is plenty of free parking and ADA accessible access around the back of the building. Please call if you will need to use the back entrance or to have ADA seats reserved.

Sewage spill into Lake Ballinger

On Thursday, March 14, the Lake Ballinger pump station, located in Shoreline on N 205th St, and owned and operated by the King County Waste Management Department, pumped overflow sewage into Lake Ballinger after a backup in the local Edmonds sewer line. 

Initial estimate of the overflow from the sewer backup was approximately 236,000 gallons. The wastewater backed up in the local Edmonds sewer line along the south side of Lake Ballinger and affected approximately 12 properties adjacent to the lake.

Clean up has been completed at those properties and landscape restoration is underway. Four side sewers that were affected have been repaired.

Protocols dictate the closing of Lake Ballinger to all recreational uses until the water has tested at safe bacterial levels for two consecutive days. Testing the samples takes a day, so the boat launch and beach were closed over the weekend. 

The water quality sampling results over the weekend showed water quality had returned to normal and four notification signs were removed that were placed at Lake Ballinger Park and Nile Shriners Golf Course.

N 205th, just east of Meridian

The pump station moves area wastewater from Snohomish county to a King county treatment plant. Sewage flows out of the pump station are part of a “flow swap arrangement” with King County. Under that arrangement, Edmonds treats wastewater from Richmond Beach in exchange for an equal amount of Lake Ballinger area flow that is sent to the King County treatment plants.

The cause of the backup is still under investigation.

Paper collage
Artist Constance Perenyi
Shoreline artist Constance Perenyi was delighted to hear that her paper collage crow, "Giselle", was accepted into the Pacific Northwest Quilt and Fiber Arts Museum's show Birds of a Fiber.

The museum is in La Conner, Washington in the Skagit Valley, home to thousands of migrating birds.

The show, which ran January 23 to March 3, 2019, is timed to coincide with the huge flocks of birds which return to the Skagit Valley every spring.

Said Constance, 
"I've long imagined getting a piece into the Pacific Northwest Quilt and Fiber Arts Museum. 
"Imagine my delight when this crow was accepted into their Birds of a Fiber show, in the main gallery. 
"The piece portrays "Giselle", a lovely bird who shared our garden for many seasons."

"Living Between the Lines"

LFP Garden Club: Gardening in Tough Spots

Christina Pfeiffer
On Tuesday April 9, 2019 the Lake Forest Park Garden Club will host Christina Pfeiffer talking on "Gardening in Tough Spots".

Every garden seems to have a spot where it is more difficult to keep plants thriving. This class offers practical tips on how to turn those spots around and determine best plant choices.

Common garden challenges including soil conditions, light levels, too much or too little moisture, root competition, slopes and tight spaces will be covered.

Christina Pfeiffer introduces herself:
Educated in landscape horticulture at Michigan State University and the University of Washington I have enjoyed a career working in public gardens, horticulture education and consulting that spans over 35 years.  Horticulture is my vocation, hobby, and passion.  

General meeting is from 9:15am to 10:30am, then a break for coffee and cookies. At 10:30am our speaker will talk.

We are located at LFP Town Center upper level, stage area. Ballinger Way NE and Bothell Way NE.

All are welcome to sit in to two free talks and then can join the club. The dues are $25 a year. Any level of gardening skill is welcome.

We meet from Sept to May each year. Special events include a summer potluck picnic, a Christmas party, and a potluck summer soiree with spouse and friend included.

There are occasional small outings. We have had bus trips when there is enough interest, to private gardens and nurseries.

Members get a great newsletter every month with really interesting information on our speakers, upcoming events and gardening tips.

Come one and all....

What Matters Most: The Get Your Sh*t Together Guide to Wills, Money, Insurance, and Life’s “What-Ifs”

In 2009, Chanel Reynolds got the call we all fear: her husband, José, had been struck by a van while cycling. In the wake of his sudden death, Reynolds realized that she was completely unprepared. Were their drafted-but-still-unsigned wills valid? How would she afford the house? What was the password to his phone? Simply put, she quickly learned she did not have her shit together, and most of us don’t, either. Blending personal narrative with hard-working information, What Matters Most expands, contextualizes, and illuminates the challenges we face in being prepared.

WeatherWatcher: Near Springtime heat wave coming to area

Sunday, March 17, 2019

Sunny N 185th St, Shoreline
Photo by Carl Dinse

It's going to feel like June for the first half of the week. An upper atmosphere circulation pattern is causing very warm and sunny weather over the region for Monday through Wednesday. High temperatures for all three days are expected to break 70°F, with Tuesday being the warmest at possibly 72-73°F. Low temperatures are out of the risk of freezing for now, with lows in the low 40's.

Thursday is a transition day, with temperatures more seasonal, high around 63°F with a low near 40°F. Clouds will be increasing during the day Thursday as well. Friday a chance of rain returns, and right now it looks like the bulk of the rain will be Friday evening or Saturday morning. A threat of showers remains through next weekend with seasonal temperatures. Highs in the upper 50's to near 60°F and lows in the low 40's.

For those that are wondering about the statistics for February, it was 3rd coldest on record, and snowiest on record. We had two days with a high temperature below freezing, 18 days with a low temperature below freezing, and five of those nights got into the teens. The average temperature at the Northridge weather station in Shoreline was 34.1°F; normal for February at that station is 41.6°F.

The graph below shows the real picture of last month's cold weather.

As for snow, there were several events, with accumulations on seven days out of the month. Several of these events were back to back from February 8-12th. First snowstorm arrived Sunday evening February 3rd and ended around 11am February 4th. The last of the snow was Tuesday February 12th in the morning as things warmed slightly with rain mixing in.

For the second half of February we remained cold and on the margin of snow, with occasional showers. Some showers were mixed with snow or were all snow but they were non-accumulating. We had a total snow accumulation of 19.7 inches, and I believe the most we had on the ground at any one time was close to 14 inches. Our snowiest and coldest period since December 2008, and February 2019 is now ranked in history among the few Seattle region big snows.

Rainfall totals were below normal for the month, but part of that was due to the majority of our precipitation falling as snow. Some snow melt off makes it into the rain gauge but with the cold, dry winds during these snow events a lot of the snow was blown off of the gauge and evaporated from the gauge before it melted.

Longer range: Cooler weather is possible again near the beginning of April, but nothing like February. I think we are still at risk for some overnight frosts, probably through late April. We will probably have several dry periods with weak rainmakers once a week or so, but the trend is looking drier than normal with seasonal temperatures on average.

This morning from my kitchen window, I was greeted by what I believe to be a female Peregrine Falcon. The West Coast Peregrines are one of the fastest creatures in the world, reaching speeds of up to 100 mph.

Spotting one used to be a very rare treat. Then in the 1990’s we were surprised by an active nest built on the Washington Mutual Building in downtown Seattle.

I have become a talons scout.

Islamic Community of Bosniaks in Washington

In light of the horrific events in Christchurch, New Zealand, the Shoreline Area News reached out to our friends at the Islamic Community of Bosniaks in Washington to see if there was anything we could offer and ask what they would like to say to the community.

Nihad Dozic, President of the ICBW, whose mosque and community center has been located in the Ballinger Neighborhood of Shoreline since 2011 (see previous article), sent this statement:

Muslims and Christians across the world were appalled to wake up to news of the terrorist attack on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, that killed and injured so many people, including children.

We extend our deepest condolences to the families and friends who lost loved ones in this senseless tragedy. To the people of New Zealand and to Muslim communities around the world: you are in our hearts and minds.

Far too often, Muslims suffer unimaginable loss and pain in the places where they should feel safest. Not long ago we remember too well the sorrow we felt when a senseless attack on the Islamic center in Quebec Canada claimed the lives of many innocent people gathered in prayer. 

Across US Muslims have experienced attacks on the mosques too.

To move forward as whole world, we need to recognize diversity as a source of strength, and not a threat. This week's victims were fathers, mothers, and children. They were neighbours, friends, and family members. As with every life taken too soon, the full measure of their loss will never be known. CBW condemns this attack, and will continue to work closely with local authorities our close friend, and others to take action against violent extremism.

Hate has no place anywhere. We must all confront Islamophobia and work to create a world in which all people, no matter their faith, where they live, or where they were born can feel safe and secure.

Kellogg Middle School wrestling faced two teams Thursday - and prevailed over both

Kellogg hosted a pair of schools on Thursday, March 14, 2019 and proved themselves up to the task.

In their first match they faced off against the Eisenhower Patriots. Thanks to the Knights' superior depth they opened the match by receiving three forfeits for an 18-0 lead in the team score.

When Eisenhower did have wrestlers, Kellogg continued their dominance as they expanded their lead to 42-9. Kellogg never let Eisenhower get close thanks to pins from eight different Knight wrestlers, including a lightning quick 17 second pin from Shokan Conway-Yuasa at 103 pounds, as they pulled away for a 78-33 victory.

In the second match of the day, Kellogg faced off against the Guardians of Gateway Middle School. 

Early on it was all Gateway as they raced out to a commanding 30-12 lead. Kellogg rebounded by picking up a trio of forfeits and a pin from Ole Burns at 128 pounds to take their first lead at 36-30.

Gateway was not to be denied, though, as they won the next three matches to move back in front. At 167 pounds Kellogg sent out team co-captain Cage Jensen. After his first takedown was nullified because of a slam call Jensen continued to be aggressive, picking up his opponent and taking him down straight to his back for a 36 second pin. The Knight's other co-captain, Ryder Baldwin, followed Jensen at 178 pounds and overwhelmed his opponent to remain perfect on the season and reclaim the team lead at 48-45.  A pin from Ramy Abdalla at 188 pounds and a pair of forfeits gave Kellogg a final come-from-behind victory of 66-45.

Kellogg wrestles next on Monday, March 18, 2019 at Olympic View Middle School.

Destinations: Seattle Kennel Club annual dog show

Text and photos by Wayne Pridemore

The Seattle Kennel Club held their annual dog show this past weekend at CenturyLink Field. There were approximately 1600 dogs registered for the events.

The organization began as the Queen City Dog Club in the late 1890s which transformed into the Seattle Kennel Club.

The show events were Confirmation, Junior Showmanship Obedience, Rally, Agility, Demonstrations, and Tours.

A dog must put its best paw forward to compete against peers in the day's events. That means grooming -- a lot of grooming, if one has a long coat. Just about all of the dogs are accustomed to the routine.

" Everyone thinks they have the best dog and none of them are wrong"
--W.R. Purche

At the show there were dog faces from Affenpinchers to Yorkshire Terriers. Small Chihuahuas' faces to large Mastiffs' faces. All lovable faces.
