The Crocuses

"Soon a host of lovely flowers
From vales and woodland burst;
But in all that fair procession
The crocuses were first."

From: The Crocuses by Frances Ellen Watkins Harper, 1825-1911


Studded tire removal deadline is March 31

Starting midnight April 1, drivers with
studded tires face a $136 fine
With a record-setting winter finally in the history books, the arrival of spring means drivers in Washington have until Sunday, March 31, 2019 to remove studded tires.

The Washington State Department of Transportation reminds drivers that state law requires all studded tires to be removed by the end of the day March 31. 

Starting at midnight on Monday, April 1, drivers with studded tires face a $136 fine.

Studded tires also damage pavement, so removing them promptly after winter has passed helps preserve state roadways. Tire removal services can get crowded near the removal deadline, so please plan accordingly.

WSDOT will not extend the studded tire deadline this year, but crews continue to monitor roads, passes, and forecasts and work to quickly clear any late season snow or ice. 

Travelers are always advised to “know before you go” by checking road conditions before heading out and staying up-to-date on changes by using WSDOT’s social media and email alert tools or calling the 5-1-1 road conditions report.

Washington and Oregon share the same studded tire removal deadline. Other states may have later dates, but the Washington law applies to all drivers in the state, even visitors. No personal exemptions or waivers are issued.

More information about studded tire regulations in Washington is available online.


Öngtupqa musician Gary Stroutsos shares cultural connection to Grand Canyon on the park’s 100th anniversary

Shoreline musician Gary Stroutsos

In celebration of the centennial of the Grand Canyon’s designation as a national park, Shoreline musician Gary Stroutsos will present an evening about traditional Hopi music and the making of the album and accompanying documentary, Öngtupqa.

Öngtupqa - the Hopi name for Grand Canyon - is the creation of musicians Clark Tenakhongva, Vice Chairman of the Hopi Tribe and renowned traditional singer, Stroutsos playing the Hopi long flute, and Matthew Nelson playing clay pot percussion.

The trio recorded the album inside the Grand Canyon’s Desert View Watchtower, a stone edifice located on the south rim of the canyon, whose architecture is inspired by Puebloan ruins.

In conjunction, a documentary film about the artists’ cultural connections to the Grand Canyon and the ancient music from the Four Corners region of the canyon was released last fall. It has received recognitions and awards at several film festivals.

The event is Thursday April 11, 2019 at 6:30pm in the Edmonds Plaza Room, located at 650 Main St, just above the Edmonds Library. The program is presented by Edmonds Library with support from the Edmonds Arts Commission. Admission is free. More information about Öngtupqa HERE.

It's all a matter of timing; Steve Robinson and the Viking cruise ship

Aurora Borealis in Tromsø, Norway 

Photos by Steven H. Robinson

Steve Robinson and his wife Leslie went on a Northern Lights cruise in Norway, up to the arctic circle January 23 - February 8, 2019.

They were on the Viking Sky cruise ship. Steve came home with beautiful photos of the skies full of moving green light.

The Viking Sky cruise ship

On Saturday, March 23, 2019, that same ship on that same cruise nearly met with disaster. The engines malfunctioned, stranding the ship in rough, frigid waters, in the middle of a storm. The ship was in danger of running aground. Waves crashed through windows, sweeping passengers across the floor. Water came up under their feet.

Search and Rescue boat

Steve photographed a Search And Rescue (SAR) ship in Stavanger, Norway, possibly one involved with the rescue operation. However, the seas were too rough for them and they turned back to port.

The Viking Sky

The Norwegian authorities were so concerned that they sent helicopters to rescue the passengers, hoisting them one by one up wires. They managed to evacuate 479 people, with 900 more to go, when the ship's crew managed to restart one engine to control the ship enough to keep it off the rocks. They waited out the storm then limped back to port under their own power. (NPR article here)

Steve says that "We also hit some rough water and skipped one port because of winds and waves. The coast of Norway can be rough at times."

Aurora Borealis at Tromsø, Norway

The main draw for the trip is the sight of the Aurora Borealis, which Steve was able to photograph in port at Tromsø, Norway.

What a difference a few weeks makes.


The Kenmore Quickies: As If Theatre Company announces First Annual Short Play Festival


As If Theatre Company is pleased to announce the first annual festival of short plays, The Kenmore Quickies; eight prompted short plays written, directed and performed by local theatre artists.

Each year, eight local playwrights will be given a specific prompt from which to write a ten-minute play in a four-week timeframe. The festival will be a weekend of performances of all of the plays, with a winning play chosen by the audience.

This year the prompts will be pulled from the Kenmore Mural Project (KMP), created by Gaul Culley and Staci Adman, located at 7304 Bothell Way NE – on the St. Vincent de Paul building. Each playwright will be randomly assigned a portion of the mural as their specific prompt.

All writers, directors and actors will gather in early May, when each playwright will be randomly assigned their specific section of the mural, and directors and actors will be assigned to writers.

From there, the writers will leave with their prompts to write their 10-minute plays. After the playwrights deliver their work, the directors and actors will bring them to life for The Kenmore Quickies on July 26-28, 2019. The winner of the Audience Favorite Award will be announced after the Sunday performance.

Dates/ times: Friday and Saturday, July 26 - 27 at 7:30pm. Sunday, July 28 at 5pm. All plays will be presented at each performance.

All tickets are $20 and on sale now HERE.

Interested playwrights should apply by submitting a writing sample (preferably comedic) of either a short play or an excerpt from a full-length play, by April 12, 2019. Submissions can be made through As If Theatre’s website.

Pratt Family interview on NPR

Sunday, March 24, 2019

Bettye, Miriam, and Edwin Pratt
When the Pratt Family was in town for the dedication of the Edwin T. Pratt Early Learning Center in Shoreline, the local NPR affiliate did an interview with Pratt's daughter Miriam, and her godmother, Shoreline resident Jean Soliz.

Miriam was a little girl when her father was assassinated in his Shoreline home; Jean and her mother were their next door neighbors and friends.

The story is HERE

According to Jean Wiebe, mother of Sarah Haycox, whose campaign was responsible for naming the Pratt Center, the visit of the Pratt family to the new Edwin Pratt Early Learning Center on February 1 is scheduled to air nationally next Friday March 29 on the CBS Evening News.

"Unfortunately," Jane says, "because of the NCAA tournament it likely will not be shown on the West coast. KIRO 7 may broadcast it Saturday morning on local television news but it should be accessible online at CBS News by Saturday 3/30."

Poem: Welcome Spring

Welcome Spring 

Welcome Spring from winter sleep 

Beneath the soil buried deep 

Greetings bud and new green leaf 

From grey and gloom you bring relief 

Hello to color bursting ‘bout 

As blossoms make their coming out 

Just like you sweet newborn lamb 

And chirping nest, how glad I am 

To welcome spring

Meridian Park PTA presents Stop the Bleed Apr 4

APRIL 4, 2019 6:30 - 8:00 PM IN THE MP SCHOOL LIBRARY 

Stop the Bleed is a national awareness campaign and call-to-action. Stop the Bleed is intended to cultivate grassroots efforts that encourage bystanders to become trained, equipped,and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives.

Blood loss is the leading cause of preventable death in multiple casualty events, like mass shootings, terrorist attacks and earthquakes. Significant external bleeding can also result from everyday events such as a motorcycle crash, or industrial accident.

Rapid control of bleeding at the scene of the event can be life-saving. That’s why we’re teaming up with volunteer coordinators Matt Alford, April Ingle, and Edmonds-based Disaster Medicine Project to train MP families to be informed bystanders.

This free 1.5 hour course teaches basic life-saving medical interventions, including a brief Active Shooter preparedness presentation and methods to control bleeding. 

Upon completion, participants will be able to:
  • Understand the principles of your response during an active shooter event.
  • Describe the progressive strategy for controlling hemorrhage.
  • Demonstrate wound packing and learn about topical hemostatic dressings.
  • Demonstrate the appropriate application of a tourniquet to the arm and leg.

If you are interested in signing up for this event, please contact April Ingle at . We have space for 30 participants (adults only please).

Our intention is to offer this monthly for the rest of the school year, so if you don’t make this class, you will be first for the next one on May 9th.

We look forward to serving you and strengthening our community!

Seattle Times: Shoreline man and his wife are caught behind Trump's travel ban

The Seattle Times: Under the radar, Trump's travel ban keeps families waiting years to reunite in America

Shoreline resident Rad Cyrus has a marriage by video chat. He and his wife Samira were married in February 2015. He came ahead to start a job at Amazon, while she stayed in Tehran, Iran. In June 2015 she applied for a visa to come join him.

Then Donald Trump was elected president and began his series of Muslim bans.

Unlike the second version of the ban, the third grants no automatic exceptions to family members of people in the U.S. Visa applicants must apply for waivers to the ban.
Yet, there is no actual application form.

Cyrus bought a condo in Shoreline, and moved to a new job at Best Buy. Every evening, he and Samira spend several hours on video chat, until it's time for her to go to work.

Many awaiting visas say they are stuck in perpetual limbo, separated from spouses, children and parents without any information about their cases other than they are in “administrative processing.”

Saturday, March 23, 2019

Entrance to ECCC 2019 after going through security

Emerald City Comic Con (ECCC) took place March 14-17, 2019 in the Washington State Convention Center in downtown Seattle.

Hogwarts School students

Emerald City Comic Con is the destination comic and pop culture show for the Pacific Northwest. ECCC delivers the best that the comics and pop culture industry has to offer directly from the creators, bringing super fans exactly what they crave: interaction with quality content and guests and an inclusive space to celebrate their fandom.

R2 Robots from Star Wars come from far away
to attend ECCC

In 2018, Emerald City Comic Con saw 95,000 fans over four days and featured hundreds of comic book guests, celebrity guests and more.

Rebel Alliance pilots from Star Wars

Cosplay is part of the fun. Cosplay (costume + play) is the practice of dressing up as a character from a movie, book, or video game.

Two witches from Oz

Photographer Steven H. Robinson was costumed as a roving photographer, complete with camera around his neck. He found hundreds of willing subjects, and put 12 miles on his FitBit. Who knew that Comic Con was good exercise?

Supergirl compares costumes with Fairy Godmother

Emerald City Comic Con is produced and run by ReedPOP, with a full team dedicated to bring you the best content at ECCC each year. ReedPOP also runs New York Comic Con, C2E2, Keystone Comic Con, Star Wars Celebration, BookCon and the PAX shows, among many others around the globe.

Where’s Waldo / Wally and Carmen San Diego

Show Flow, Panels, and Vendors.

In 2018, ECCC brought the best in comics, collectibles, and content to the forefront. Artist Alley was back, right next to the Writer’s Block and the Musicalley!

Vendor floor

The Show Floor continued to amaze with comics, apparel and exclusives around every corner! 

Doctor Who. (Dad) the 4th Doctor and (Daughter) the 13th Doctor

ECCC also introduced Homegrown, a dispensary of local arts, Nintendo brought the gaming to the Skybridge lobby, with a giant Kirby to boot, and MoPOP had Lockjaw on lockdown in their booth for photo ops and fun!

Athlete from A League of Their Own

The only rules pertain to behavior and weapons - and there are a lot of those rules! What costume you choose is up to your particular passion for a fantasy world. The costumes are, for the most part, authentic, elaborate, and expensive.

Comic Con will be back next year, so you have time to choose your persona and get your costume ready.

Einstein wrestling battles Kellogg and sibling coaches compete for league title

It was a battle for the league title on Thursday, March 21, 2019 as the undefeated Einstein Tigers wrestling team visited the 2nd place Kellogg Knights.

Kellogg took the early lead with a pair of pins from George Fernandez at 81 pounds and Kaiju Ferguson at 88 pounds. Einstein bounced right back and won the next three matches to take their first lead at 13-12. 

Over the several weights the two teams traded victories back and forth. When Kellogg's Matthew Curtis came back from a 4-0 deficit to pin his opponent in the second round of the 133 pound match the two teams found themselves tied at 30-30. 

Einstein's Grant Harley held on for a 9-7 win at 140 pounds to reclaim the lead for the Tigers that would start an 18-0 run over four weights. Kellogg tried to rally, but three late pins from Ryder Baldwin, Jessie Gigrich and Jacob Smith weren't quite enough as Einstein held on for a narrow 54-48 victory.

The win also gave Einstein Coach Derek Norton his first undefeated season in fifteen years as head coach at the school

Scot and Soda: Author Catriona McPherson previews her newest Lexy Campbell book at Third Place Books Sunday

Multi-Award-Winning and Best-Selling author Catriona McPherson is making a stop over at Third Place Books on Sunday, March 24, 2019 on her road trip through Oregon and Washington on her way up to this year's Left Coast Crime in Vancouver, BC.

Scottish-born California transplant Lexy Campbell sails again when a body is found during her houseboat Halloween party. 
The smart choice is to leave it to the cops to identify the body and catch the killer. 
But of course... Lexy and company make a different choice, and they're on the case before you could say "Tam O'Shanter!"

Her solo road trip is bound to end up as part of Lexy's life in her next book, so now's a good time to jump on the Last Ditch bandwagon, meet the author and get yourselves a signed copy while you're at it!

Denny Clouse
North City Water District
Join Shoreline Rotary on Wednesday morning, March 27, 2019 at the Shoreline Community College HUB, 16101 Greenwood Ave N, 98133.

The meeting starts at 7:00am with breakfast and camaraderie; formal program starts at 7:30am.

We often turn on our faucets without giving it a thought. Water runs out, and we fill our coffee pots, rinse our dishes, or take a drink of that cool, refreshing H2O. But how that water gets to our homes is a multi-dimensional challenge with a long, complex history.

What is now known as the North City Water District, came into existence by vote as Water District 42 on August 1, 1931. Ever since then, the District has been committed to excellent, uninterrupted service to its patrons.

Denny Clouse, Operations Manager for the North City Water District, is one of the people working tirelessly to make sure that commitment remains strong. With over 39 years in the water industry, Denny has a vast education in domestic water supply and four certification levels, and has worked as the Operations Manager for the District for 13 years.

Clouse is the Past Chair of the Pacific Northwest Section of the American Water Works Association (PNWS-AWWA).

He will tell us all about the NC/DC Pump Station and its importance to the water supply in the District’s service area. Come meet Denny Clouse and hear his fascinating perspective on the most vital substance on earth.

March 22, 2019 proclaimed Rep. Ruth Kagi Day in Seattle

Whereas, a long-time resident of Seattle, Representative Ruth Kagi was elected in 1998 to represent the 32nd district in the Washington State legislature; and
Whereas, from 2002-2009 Ruth served on the Early Learning and Human Services Committee, acting as a fierce advocate for all Washingtonians; and
Whereas, a tireless advocate who has long believed that every child deserves to have asses to a quality education, Ruth sponsored the Early Start Act to expand access to early learning statewide; and 
Whereas, throughout her service in the legislature, Ruth demonstrated time and again that every child deserves an equal right to succeed in life, and that their path should never be predetermined by income, race or background; and 
Whereas, Ruth's colleagues attest to the way in which she actively shaped the way our state views early learning opportunities, and transformed the way these issues are addressed with a holistic approach; and
Whereas, with her retirement from the legislature in January, the City of Seattle remembers how lucky we are to call Representative Ruth Kagi a friend and ally as we work together to support our children and create the most vibrant and inclusive region possible;

"So pleased to be honored at the Wellspring lunch today, and given a proclamation from Mayor Durkan for Rep Ruth Kagi day. It is awesome to work with such outstanding organizations like Wellspring to give all children the opportunity to succeed." --Rep. Ruth Kagi

Rep. Kagi served the 32nd Legislative District from Lake Forest Park, then from Seattle after redistricting put Lake Forest Park into the 46th Legislative District. She served the City of Shoreline for her entire legislative career.
