2 hours 43 min 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.

Photos and Story by Isabel Herbruger, age 10

The Pirates took on Foster Bulldogs at Renton Memorial Stadium on Thursday, March 26, 2015.

There were some frustrating moments between other teams when runners missed the relay baton transfers and a close finish between a couple of Pirates made it a fun afternoon in the sun.

Hurdles were exciting because I found a great spot to get photos from and not interfere with the runners.

The unofficial scores posted on Seamount League this morning say Highline Boys lost a close one (63-72) and the Lady Pirates won (81-37).

The next meet is 3:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 2, 2015 at Highline Memorial Stadium.

Track season started last Friday (March 20) with a Highline Schools Jamboree at Memorial Field.

These are some of my best shots from the event (click images to see larger versions/slideshow):

There was always something happening on different parts of the field, so it was hard to figure out how to get good photos and the scores too.

The next meet for Highline is at Renton Memorial Stadium this Thursday, March 26, at 3:30 p.m.

I started a new community Facebook page for the rest of the good track photos and stories I get:

Stunning jewelry from five Artists a welcome addition to Burien Arts Gallery

Tue, 03/17/2015 - 10:34

The Burien Arts Gallery is now also offering stunning jewelry from five talented artists.

The affordable wearable art, created by Checha, Bob Hoffmeyer, Amy Reeves Silvana Segulja and Victoria Leep, is on display at the Gallery, 826 S.W. 152nd Street in Olde Burien.

Checha grew up in Yugoslavia and moved to Seattle to pursue an architecture and interior design career. After years of collecting fine jewelry, she began making her own, exploring architectural forms and materials in unexpected scale.

“My jewelry is intended for those who are not afraid to make a statement and draw attention,” Checha declares.

After a long business career and many years of purchasing glass art, West Seattle artist Bob Hoffmeyer started creating lamp work and fused glass pendants, beads and jewelry.

“Sometimes what emerges are expressions of scenes and the infinite color variations of nature. ” Bob reports. “Other times, the pendants and beads seem to reflect aspects of the human experience of life. They can be variously playful, elegant, flamboyant, reserved and, often, ethereal. Whatever else it expresses, always the glass is alive and sensuous to the touch.”

After earning a degree in metals at University of Washington, Amy Reeves worked as a professional in fine jewelry for many years. Since 2009, she has been the sole proprietor of Tacoma Metal Arts Center as well as teaching classes in jewelry making.

“My work explores the relationship between the manmade and the natural, and draws influence from the structures and surfaces of botanical and anatomical objects,” Amy explains.

Silvana Segulja travels internationally collecting beautiful beads that she handpicks to use in her jewelry. Since beginning Silvana Segulja Design in 1999 she has continued to collect gemstones, pearls, Murano glass, and much more.

Her jewelry is inspired by nature, which is expressed in the subtle movement of each piece.

Victoria Leep, from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, creates using the birch bark from fallen trees along the shores of Lake Superior. Utilizing the bark in all of its varied tones, feathers, pearls, semi-precious stones, leather and steel she designs one of a kind necklaces and super lightweight earrings.

Her walks along the shore during all seasons of the year provide her inspiration.

The Gallery is open Wednesday-Saturday, noon-6 p.m. and Sunday, noon-4 p.m. It is closed Monday and Tuesday.

More information is available at www.burienarts.org or 206-244-7808.

Burien City Council awards Eric Mathison its 2015 ‘Citizen of the Year’ award

Mon, 03/16/2015 - 19:51

Photos of Eric Mathison from his Facebook page.

At Monday night’s City Council meeting, Eric Mathison was named as Burien’s 2015 “Citizen of the Year.”

Mathison, who recently retired as Editor for the Highline Times, was unanimously voted as the sole award winner.

He currently serves on the city’s Parks & Recreation Citizen’s Advisory Board, as well as volunteering as Secretary for the Burien Arts Association.

The Mathison family has deep roots in Burien, once owning five acres where what is now Mathison Park at 533 S. 146th Street. The Mathison children had many adventures on the property – climbing trees, building forts, and picking fruit from their gardens.

“Just because we lived on five acres on the top of a hill, I don’t want you to think we were rich snobs,” Eric said on the city’s website. “My dad was a Boeing middle manager. My mom took care of five kids and volunteered in the community. My parents were into voluntary simplicity before voluntary simplicity was cool.”

Mathison’s award earns him the right to serve as Grand Marshal in the city’s Independence Day Parade on July 4.

Seattle P-I: Investigation of Maury Island UFO ‘Incident’ haunted by coincidence

Mon, 03/16/2015 - 12:44

The Seattle P-I on Sunday posted a very interesting story about the local film “The Maury Island Incident,” in which journalist Jake Ellison dives deep into a ‘rabbit hole’ about the 1947 UFO case and uncovers some great new information about an FBI agent.

“But soon after my first interview with the moviemakers, I found myself on a little trip through the looking glass into a world where coincidence spawns suspicion, and fact and myth get all tangled up,” Ellison writes, “…when I settled in to do a brief story on the movie’s latest successes … a simple question derailed me for a spell: Did the FBI agent who wrote the declassified FBI memos central to the movie even exist?”

The film, which was shot in Burien, Des Moines, Tukwila and off the waters of Maury Island, world premiered last year at the Big Island Film Festival in Hawaii, then had its North American premiere at the Seattle International Film Festival. Since then it has played over a dozen festivals and screenings, and won two awards – audience choice award for “Best Short” at the Gig Harbor Film Festival, and “Best Short” at the International UFO Congress in Tempe, AZ. It also premiered as Indieflix’ first “Original Series” and six webisodes can be seen for free on Hulu here.

The film will screen next at the Burien UFO Festival on April 1st.

Read Jake’s full story – which includes a video interview with filmmakers Steve Edmiston and Scott Schaefer – here.

PHOTOS: 10-year old Isabel Herbruger’s final pics of Highline High Wrestling

Mon, 03/09/2015 - 18:24

[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. She also has three brothers on the Highline wrestling team. 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

Dear Pirates and fans,

This concludes my adventures in Pirate Wrestling for this year (click images to see larger versions/slideshow):

This season, I learned a lot about taking better photos and writing good stories to go with them. The more I learned about wrestling moves, the better I got at knowing when something exciting would happen. I also learned a lot about camera settings and a little about which lens to use. My photos got less blurry during the season and I kept getting lots and lots of great shots each week instead of just a few great shots.

It was really neat to be able to give each of the Seniors a special photo of themselves during the season at their award ceremony. I even had a nice photo college I was able to share with each of the coaches. I was surprised when they thanked me at the award potluck.

I am also very thankful for the help from the following people this season who helped me accomplish all of this:

  • Mr. Scott Schaefer from The B-town Blog, for publishing my photos and articles.
  • Mr. David Willoughby from Seamont Athletics, for advice on taking better shots and granting permission to upload photos to that site. He was also helpful in helping get the media pass for State.
  • Mr. Conor Laffey from WIAA, for taking a chance on me and granting a one day media pass at State to take photos. I hope I exceeded his expectations.
  • Ms. Box, the Highline High School Athletic Director, who said I was worthy of the media pass at State because I take good photos.
  • Mr. Kurt Howard, who loaned me a lens during the season and a special lens during State to help me take even better photos. He also spent time giving me pointers on how to change my camera settings in the different school gyms.
  • The Pirate Coaches, they let me follow them at tournaments and matches. I really felt like I was part of the team, even though I was way too young!

And finally a big thank you to the Pirate Wrestlers. They let me hang out with them and take all sorts of photos. It was like they were movie stars and I was writing stories about each of them. I hope I never distracted you during a match or told a bad story about you. It was a lot of fun to watch you every week and figure out when you would do a great move on your opponent. Thank you for never landing on top of me!

I really hope I am invited back next year as your OFFICIAL Unofficial Photographer.

Until the start of next match…..

Love,
Isabel

P.S.: I hope to see you this spring when I learn how to take track pictures!

Nina McLemore Trunk Show benefits Highline Music4Life

Mon, 03/09/2015 - 10:38

The Music4Life™ initiative – including the local version called “Highline Music4Life” – has won corporate support from New York-based Nina McLemore, the clothing line for executive and professional women.

McLemore’s boutique store in the Fairmont Olympic Hotel in downtown Seattle is providing 15 percent of proceeds until March 15 for purchases by customers who identify themselves as supportive of Music4Life.

“This is a wonderful gift,” says Betty Woods, former President/CEO of Premera Blue Cross and current Governing Board Chair of Music4Life ( www.Music4Life.org ). “From the beginning, Nina has told us how much she values both the arts and education. We are very grateful for her – and her company’s – support.”

Music4Life is the Seattle-based non-profit that acquires “lovingly used” musical instruments, gets them repaired and then provides them to participating public school districts for use by elementary-aged students of low income families. Besides Seattle Public Schools, Music4Life also operates programs supporting Edmonds, Highline, Mukilteo and Shoreline Public Schools. The program acquires used instruments from adults who understand that their highest and best use is to put them back into play. With adequate resources, Music4Life can also buy new musical instruments for school districts.

Nina (pronounced as NEYE-nah) McLemore LLC (www.NinaMcLemore.com) has high-end stores in Nantucket, Palm Beach, Palm Springs, Chapel Hill, Aspen, Chevy Chase and other similar locations. McLemore designs “clothing to address the needs of senior professional and executive women and women who are active in their communities.” She was featured in a Wall Street Journal article in July that referred to her clothing as “a weapon in the wardrobes of authoritative women.” (Click here to see the article.)

The March 1st kick-off event featured live music by a student as a celebration of Music4Life in the Seattle area. Music4Life volunteers were on-hand to explain the program in detail.

One recent national report found that half of all public school students are from income-eligible families that qualify for participation in the Free-and-Reduced-Lunch program. The Seattle area is no exception.

Music4Life enjoys the support of notable music advocates and other community leaders. Gerard Schwarz, world-renowned conductor laureate of the Seattle Symphony Orchestra, has endorsed the program, saying:

“This wonderful program begins with children in elementary school at a time when, if they’re interested and talented in any way, they have the greatest chance of success. Many people tell me of the impact that direct knowledge of instrumental music has had on their lives. We intend to give this advantage to all our children.”

In addition to Nina McLemore, Music4Life™ is supported in part by grants from the Hazel Miller Foundation, First Choice Health; 4Culture (the former Seattle-King County Arts Commission); the Knossos Foundation; various local Rotary and Kiwanis clubs; the Highline Schools Foundation; as well as by the law firm of Garvey Schubert Barer; Seattle Symphony Orchestra, Cascade Symphony Orchestra, the Edmonds Center for the Arts; Kennelly Keys Music; Hammond Ashley Violins, the Guitar Store and others.
