    LETTERS TO THE EDITORBeachesStyrofoam floats pollute beaches

    Please dont use styro-foam for flotation. This is what it is doing to our beaches. This picture is of my beach in the 24100 block of Vashon Highway S.W. Please check your flo-tation, and if you are using styrofoam, will you please replace it with something that doesnt get pulver-ized and grow all kinds of germs inside?

    Fourth of JulyHydroplanes mean summer is here

    At 5:39 a.m. July 4, I shut my three-pane windows,

    sure that the Vashon thun-derboats had cancelled due to weather. The gray showing from the Tacoma direction looked like any moment the wet would be ours again, so I thought, I dont blame them one bit.

    So, at 6 a.m., whats that sound? Can it be? It is that obnoxious yowl of one, or were there more? Between my trees and that grayish haze I couldnt

    be sure, but there he was. Yippee and hallelujah! My July 4 is complete.

    Through triple-paned windows a smile on my face the rest of the sum-mer can begin.

    Thanks for all the work you guys and gals put in, it is appreciated so much. Such darn good enjoyment, right, Vashon? Thanks again.

    open to the public, and the community residents attending the general meetings, held on the third Monday of each month, vote on these community decisions. Attendance of 25 (yes, that magic popula-tion number) is required to have a quorum for a vote and the majority yup, the votes of just 13 intrepid residents pass or fail a motion. And do our votes count beyond our little floating piece of rock and dirt? You bet they do. King County funds our council to the tune of $10,000 a year and is in constant contact with the council via the countys designated representative. The decisions of our council have various impacts within the county, depending on the department, issue or rule affected. But impact we do have.

    One of the best examples of the incred-ible power us 25 or so Islanders wield will be demonstrated at the July 19 meeting of the community council. Up for a vote is whether to extend the existing Town Plan to the north in order to extend the service boundaries of the sewer district. Interestingly enough, none of the prop-

    erty owners affected by this motion were in attendance at the recent forum on the issue. Just remember, we 25 or so will be voting on a possible alteration to the Town Plan that will, either way, affect Islanders, and you will have to live with it. If the motion is approved by the community council, it will then go to the King County Council. And if we vote it down, it dies. Now that seems like power to me.

    Planning a move to Vashon Island? Love what you have found here? Want to have some say in the future of your com-munity and lifestyle? I urge you to show up at the community council meetings. Surprisingly enough, the 25 or so of us dont really want all the power conferred on us wed love to share it. And like any small town, we 25 or so have our differ-ences, but we are generally a pretty con-genial group and are eager to add to the population.

    Chris Beck serves on the Vashon-Maury Island Community Council executive board.

    St. Anthony provides Vashon residents with advanced medical care close to home.

    Today, when someone asks Gig Harbor resident Dick Brynestad about his knee pain, he has to stop and remember. For years, the pain made it impossible for Dick to fully enjoy life. But now its become a distant memory.

    Dr. Jiganti performed knee replacement surgery and with the help of the St. Anthony Joint Camp team, I was up and walking the very next day, says Dick. Today Dick is back to xing faucets and cleaning gutters for family members, pain-free.

    Vashon residents have easy access to expert emergency services 24/7, sophisticated in- and outpatient surgery, complete outpatient cancer care and much more at St. Anthony Hospital. Let us help you get back to living the life you love.

    Thanks to St. Anthony Hospital, I feel 80-years-young again.

    With each case, I think about how I can help ensure the best recovery possible for my patients. At St. Anthony Hospital, our team works together to help people return to enjoying everyday activities again.

    Singers, dancers and actors bring a lively production of Oklahoma to the stageThe cast of Drama Docks new pro-duction of Oklahoma is gearing up to open the show this weekend for a two-week run at Vashon High School.

    Tom Hughes Photo

    Drama Docks summer musical, Oklahoma, will open at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, July 8, at Vashon High School, and continue with additional performances scheduled through July 18.

    More than 75 Islanders are involved in the produc-tion and have been preparing for the show for the past several months.

    Oklahoma, by Rodgers and Hammerstein, is one of the most celebrated shows in the American musi-cal theater canon. Vashons production is directed by Phil Dunn, who stepped in to take the place of Drama Dock director Elizabeth Anthony, who had to step down from the show in early June due to health

    problems. Teenage thespians David Katz and Zoey Rice will

    play the leading roles of Curly and Laurey, singing such well-known songs as Oh, What a Beautiful Morning and People Will Say Were in Love.

    Performance times are 7:30 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, 2 p.m. on Sunday, July 10, and 4 p.m. on Sunday, July 18. Ticket prices for Thursday evening performances are $10 and $5; tickets to all other performances are $15 and $10. Buy tickets at Books by the Way, Vashon Bookshop or at Group rates are also avail-able; e-mail for details.

    When Puget Sound Energy challenged Vashon residents earlier this year to sign up for its Green Power Program, in which custom-ers tack a few extra dollars onto their bill each month

    to support development of renewable energy resources, they quickly responded.

    Promised a $10,000 grant for a community solar proj-ect if there were 110 new enrollments by the end of the year, the Island proved its support for renewable energy when it met the challenge in about three months. Now, PSE is upping the ante with a new chal-lenge and another $5,000 in grant money hanging in the balance.

    Heather Mulligan, who heads up PSEs Green Power

    Program and has imple-mented similar Green Power challenges in communities such as Bellingham and Whidbey Island, said that Vashon easily had the fast-est response to the program she has seen.

    Were thrilled that Vashon met the goal that early. ... Weve never seen a goal hit this quickly, she said, adding that the achievement was especial-ly impressive considering the already high program participation on the Island compared wi
