PHOTOS: Highline Pirates vs Lindbergh track by 10-year old Photographer Isabel

7 hours ago

[EDITOR’S NOTEThe following article is another from our youngest-ever Contributor – 10-year old Isabel Herbruger – who has been submitting stories and photos as part of her effort to earn a Girl Scout badge for journalism, as well as qualify for a 4H photography project. We encourage residents of all ages to submit stories and photos for posting – for consideration, please email yours to [email protected]!]

Photos and Story by Isabel Herbruger, age 10

Last Thursday (April 23), the Highline Pirates took on Lindbergh at Renton Memorial Stadium.

The boys score was Pirates 23 to Lindbergh 103.

For the girls it was Pirates 34 to Lindbergh 109.

Kennedy was competing against Foster at the same event.

There are a lot of injured Pirates right now, so the team has gotten pretty small. It was cold and wet during this meet, so it was a good one to miss. I got pretty wet taking these pictures (click images to see larger versions/slideshow):

This week there was a Lady Pirate pole vaulter. It is special because there is not a place to practice pole vaulting at Highline right now. The Booster Club is working on earning money to get a pole vault place at Highline.

A neat story I learned about one of the Pirate coaches is he still comes to every meet to help the Pirates even though he is really sick right now. I always see him talking to the sprinters and the hurdlers before and after races. He is always trying to get them to stretch more.

Kelvin (Herbruger), who got a personal record in the mile, was always one step behind Kennedy runner, Lincoln (Marino), in the long distance races.

The 4×100 relays happened during and right after a downpour. The Lady Pirates beat Lindbergh and the boys lost to them.

The next meet is against Foster at 3:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 30 at Renton Memorial Stadium.

As always, there are more pictures at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Highline-Pirate-Track-Field-by-Isabel/1624565417777378

Thank you for time and consideration,

PHOTO: 102-year old schooner ‘Adventuress’ sails past Three Tree Point

Fri, 04/24/2015 - 13:46

Dory Hamlyn sent us this photo, showing the 102-year old schooner ‘Adventuress’ as she rounded Three Tree Point and headed south on Friday, April 24:

Here’s more info about this schooner, according to Sound Experience:

The schoooner Adventuress was built at the Rice Brothers Yard in East Boothbay, Maine. Designed by B.B. Crowninshield, the two-masted, gaff-rigged schooner was launched in 1913. Her owner, John Borden II, of Chicago, commissioned the vessel for his personal use to embark on an Arctic expedition to collect specimens for the American Museum of Natural History in New York, with the particular goal of adding a bowhead whale skeleton to the museum’s exhibits. The goal would go unrealized, however, and Adventuress would move on–without Mr. Borden–to other endeavors, including several decades of service to the San Francisco Bar Pilots.

Adventuress came north to Seattle in 1952, and today she serves as the flagship of Sound Experience, a non-profit organization dedicated to the protection of Puget Sound. Carrying more than 3,500 passengers each year on educational expeditions, the vessel has become an icon for environmental awareness and stewardship.

Four all-new plays in 2015 Bill & Peggy Hunt Playwrights Festival start May 1

Wed, 04/22/2015 - 18:49

Four all-new plays by Washington playwrights will be featured in the 2015 Bill & Peggy Hunt Playwrights Festival, which runs at Burien Actors Theatre from May 1 through May 24.

For about the price of a matinee movie theater ticket – just $10(!) – you can see TWO brand-new and award-winning plays live in May during this Playwrights Festival.

From May 1-10, the one-act The Study Group is paired with the full-length The Skilled Use of Blunt Objects. The Study Group, written by Stephan Feldman, is a one-act comedy-drama in which a hare-brained prank involving a mouse and a desk leads to issues of sexual ethics. The Skilled Use of Blunt Objects, written by Thomas Pierce, is a full-length drama that explores just how far people will go to get elected.

From May 15-24, the one-act Dr. Kritzinger’s 12 O’Clock is paired with the full-length Four Gone Conclusions: Some Brief Field Trips into the Absurd. Dr. Kritzinger’s 12 O’Clock is a one-act study in evil about the 1942 meeting in which Nazi and German officials set in motion the “Final Solution” for the Jews. Four Gone Conclusions: Some Brief Field Trips into the Absurd, written by Kevin Boze, is a full-length comedy that offers an absurdist look at life, the afterlife, whales, aliens and more.

After each play is performed, audience members are invited to participate in a talk-back with the director and playwright. These talk-backs provide the playwrights with fresh ideas, valuable comment and honest audience response.

The shows are suitable for ages 13-plus due to some adult language and content.

Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m.

Festival sponsors include the Mark Restaurant & Bar, 4Culture King County Lodging Tax and the City of Burien.

BUY TICKETS ONLINE
For tickets and information, go online to www.burienactorstheatre.org or call 206-242-5180. Burien Actors Theatre is located at 14501 4th Ave SW in Burien.

ABOUT THE BILL AND PEGGY HUNT PLAYWRIGHTS FESTIVAL
The mission of the Bill and Peggy Hunt Playwrights Festival is twofold: to encourage Washington State playwrights to pursue their craft and to showcase previously unproduced plays written by Washingtonians. Playwrights are invited to submit their scripts, which are evaluated by a panel of judges who select the winners. Burien Actors Theatre (BAT) produces the winning plays in the festival. Top winners in the one-act and full-length script categories are produced as fully staged performances on BAT’s main stage.

The Festival was named to honor Bill and Peggy Hunt’s dedicated service to theater and their devotion to and involvement with BAT. Peggy Hunt joined Burien’s theater scene in 1960. Over the next 35 years both Bill and Peggy appeared in and directed plays, designed and built sets, served on BAT’s Board of Directors, and were involved in some aspect of every theater project.

BAT officially launched the Bill and Peggy Hunt Playwrights Festival in 1999. This year, BAT has chosen four playwrights to be honored with awards.

ABOUT BURIEN ACTORS THEATRE
Incorporated in 1980, Burien Actors Theatre has been a leading producer of quality live theater serving residents of the Seattle and south Puget Sound areas.

BAT gives audiences an intriguing and invigorating theatre experience with unusual and fantastical productions they can’t get on a DVD or see anywhere else. The company’s mission is to treat audiences to productions of the highest artistic integrity that excite, engage and involve both the local and expanding theatrical communities in the Puget Sound region.

BAT is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) entity and operates on revenue from ticket sales, donations, grants, sponsorships and volunteers.

‘Abstract by Nature’ solo show at Burien Arts Gallery opens Friday, May 8

Wed, 04/22/2015 - 13:36

“Abstract by Nature” – a solo show by Olympia painter Becky Knold – begins Friday, May 8 at the Burien Arts Gallery.

“The paintings selected for this exhibit at the Burien Arts Gallery are visual evidence of things I’ve seen in the natural world, even though they may not depict the realistic appearance of their source,” Becky explains.

“In fact, it’s not my intention to paint ‘reality’ but to capture the essence of a memory. These paintings have as their source a vision of nature that has been internalized, distilled and held onto as a kind of visual memory, and finally expressed as a painting that is ‘Abstract by Nature.’”

Meet Becky at the Opening Reception Friday, May 8, 5-8 p.m. at the Burien Arts Gallery, 826 S.W. 152nd St.

The exhibit ends Sunday, May 31.

Becky will also exhibit contemporary sculpture pieces.

Works by Liz Simpson and Marta Creswell will also be featured in the Artists United room at the Gallery. Both artists like to experiment with different art forms, including mixed media and collage.

The Burien Arts Gallery is open noon-6 p.m., Wednesday through Saturday and noon-4 p.m. on Sunday. The Gallery is closed Monday and Tuesday.

For more information, call 206-244-7808 or visit www.burienarts.org.

PHOTOS: Burien Parks’ 360-degree views of Seahurst Park

Sun, 04/19/2015 - 17:09

Our friends at Burien Parks recently shot and created some pretty cool 360-degree photos of Seahurst Park, which may inspire you to make a trip – in real life! – out to one of our city’s wonderful parks.

After clicking on “Click to view,” use your cursor to drag the photos around and take a look all around:

View of North Beach Area:

View from The Nori Picnic Shelter Area:

View from The Coral Picnic Area:

View from Sea Star Picnic Area:

Here’s some background info from Parks Director Michael Lafreniere:

I set up a digital camera on a tripod, then simply start taking lots of pictures, panning up and down or left and right, and taking a picture each time. Then incrementally moving the camera horizontally about 15 degrees, sometimes also taking several photos panning vertically. Eventually I end up with LOTS of photos. The key thing that makes the software work best at creating a better panoramic is to keep the camera in the same position, i.e. all the photos taken from the same point in space.

The next step involves taking all the pictures and importing them into a free software program from Microsoft called Image Composite Editor (http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/um/redmond/projects/ice/). A very easy program to use, just dragging and dropping all the files into the program, and it does all the work. That’s it! After several minutes, it’s done processing the pictures and creating the seamless overlap and integration of all the photos. Then I create some hotspots of interest, calling out key facilities in the shot. The final step is uploading the resulting image file to Burien Parks’ free account at Microsoft’s Photosynth website (www.photosynth.net).

I’m hoping to hear from residents what their favorite spots are in our other parks and have them nominate a future 360 photoshoot venue.

To let Michael know your idea for a favorite spot for one of these cool 360-photos, send an email to [email protected].

PHOTOS: Highline High Track vs Hazen by 10-year old Photographer Isabel

Fri, 04/17/2015 - 12:08

[EDITOR’S NOTEThe following article is another from our youngest-ever Contributor – 10-year old Isabel Herbruger – who has been submitting stories and photos as part of her effort to earn a Girl Scout badge for journalism, as well as qualify for a 4H photography project. We encourage residents of all ages to submit stories and photos for posting – for consideration, please email yours to [email protected]!]

Photos and Story by Isabel Herbruger, age 10

Spring break meant there was no track for two weeks. I really missed it. Yesterday (Thursday, April 16), the Pirates hosted Hazen at Memorial Stadium.

The final meet score for the girls was Highline 13 to Hazen 135.

For the boys it was Highline 19 to Hazen 113.

The scores may sound really bad, but they are not. Hazen has many track and field players, so it is easy to score lots of points. The great thing about the Pirates is, 35 different personal records were set yesterday! There are only 68 Pirates in track, so more than half gave their best performance yesterday (click images to see larger versions/slideshow):

The next meet is Thursday April 23, 2015 at 3:30 pm at the Renton Memorial Stadium. There is no admission fee to watch several schools compete and they have really good hotdogs there.

I included my best photos and have many more at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Highline-Pirate-Track-Field-by-Isabel/1624565417777378
