    11. The Whale Trail Speaker Series: 2015 Killer Whale Research Survey @ C & P Coffee Company
      7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

      The first in the 2015 series Orca Talks hosted by The Whale Trail in West Seattle takes place Thursday March 26th, 7:00–8:30 pm at C & P Coffee Company (WSB sponsor). $5 suggested donation, kids free. Tickets are available online.

      “2015 Killer Whale Research Survey”
      Presentation by Brad Hanson, Northwest Fisheries Science Center

      Researchers recently spent 21 days aboard the NOAA ship Bell M. Shimada, tracking endangered Southern Resident killer whales (SRKWs) off the coasts of Washington and Oregon. Good weather and ocean conditions allowed researchers exceptional access to the whales, including the first sighting of new calf L121, during their winter foraging period.

      The winter survey addressed a high research priority to fill a major gap in our understanding of SRKWs life history – where these whales go during the winter, what they do, and what they eat.

      Join us for this special presentation by Dr. Brad Hanson, NWFSC lead killer
      whale researcher. Be the first to hear what researchers observed, and how
      data collected on this cruise will help recover J, K and L pods.

      This is the first in the 2015 series Orca Talks hosted by The Whale Trail
      in West Seattle. The event also features updates from Robin Lindsay (Seal Sitters), and Diver Laura James (tox-ick.org).

      Buy tickets early to reserve your seat. And hurry! This will likely sell
      out.

      About the Speaker

      About The Whale Trail
      The Whale Trail (www.thewhaletrail.org) is a series of sites around the region where the public may view orcas and other marine mammals from shore. Our mission is to inspire appreciation and stewardship of whales and our marine environment by establishing a network of viewing sites along the whales’ trails through the Salish Sea and the coastal waters of the Pacific Northwest.

      Our goals are to increase awareness that our marine waters are home to orcas and other species; connect visitors to orcas, other marine wildlife and their habitat; inspire stewardship and build community; promote land-based whale watching. Our over-arching goal is to ensure the southern resident orcas do not go extinct.

      The Whale Trail provides simple, powerful, and long-lasting reminders to visitors and residents alike that orcas and other whales live in our waters. Through our current sites and signs, including two on every Washington State ferry, we reach more than 22 million people each year. Our near-term goals are to add a site in every coastal county in Washington, and around Vancouver Island, throughout the orcas’ range. Together, we will turn the tide for the whales!

      The Whale Trail is led by a core team of partners including NOAA Fisheries, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, the Seattle Aquarium, the Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary, and the Whale Museum. Donna Sandstrom is the Founder and Executive Director. The Whale Trail is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, registered in Washington State.

      7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

      Chinglish
      By David Henry Hwang

      March 5 – March 29, 2015
      Seattle Premiere

      This laugh-out-loud comedy by the much celebrated Tony-Award winning playwright David Henry Hwang (M. Butterfly), merrily spews forth mutilated and mangled idioms, slang and pronunciations, against the backdrop of stranger-in-a-strange-land tensions. Our protagonist, a naïve American business man, finds himself in China trying to sell a Cultural Minister signs with proper English translations, all the while making his own blunders not only in language, but in cultural etiquette, sex, and in searching for the best guanxi!

      *mature themes

      Performances: March 5 – March 29, 2015
      Wednesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Sundays at 3 pm

      Tickets are available online at artswest.org or at the Box Office: 206-938-0339. Learn more about the show here.

      Chinglish
      By David Henry Hwang

      March 5 – March 29, 2015
      Seattle Premiere

      This laugh-out-loud comedy by the much celebrated Tony-Award winning playwright David Henry Hwang (M. Butterfly), merrily spews forth mutilated and mangled idioms, slang and pronunciations, against the backdrop of stranger-in-a-strange-land tensions. Our protagonist, a naïve American business man, finds himself in China trying to sell a Cultural Minister signs with proper English translations, all the while making his own blunders not only in language, but in cultural etiquette, sex, and in searching for the best guanxi!

      *mature themes

      Performances: March 5 – March 29, 2015
      Wednesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Sundays at 3 pm

      *The Episcopal Church of St. John the Baptist was established in West Seattle in 1892, for a “broad-minded and liberal churchmanship, which should not only develop the spiritual side of life, but also encourage the social welfare in the most thoughtful and progressive minds of this community.” Today, the people of St. John’s continue to strive to live into this statement of purpose through such programs as our Just Garden Project to provide fresh produce for area food banks, feeding the hungry at Nicklesville and with the Community Meals program and building for the educational needs of students in the Mulundi Village in Kenya. Sunday worship is at 8:00 and 10:15 am, with Christian Formation classes at 10:00 am. We invite you and all whom you love, to “Come as you are!

We have a large outreach to the homeless population of West Seattle… Sunday service is 6 PM held in the fellowship of our dear friends at St. John The Baptist Episcopal Church – enter through the doors on the southeast corner of 42nd Ave & SW Hanford SW. 206/890-8110.

      Chinglish
      By David Henry Hwang

      March 5 – March 29, 2015
      Seattle Premiere

      This laugh-out-loud comedy by the much celebrated Tony-Award winning playwright David Henry Hwang (M. Butterfly), merrily spews forth mutilated and mangled idioms, slang and pronunciations, against the backdrop of stranger-in-a-strange-land tensions. Our protagonist, a naïve American business man, finds himself in China trying to sell a Cultural Minister signs with proper English translations, all the while making his own blunders not only in language, but in cultural etiquette, sex, and in searching for the best guanxi!

      *mature themes

      Performances: March 5 – March 29, 2015
      Wednesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Sundays at 3 pm

      “I know, I know, karaoke is supposed to kinda suck. It is traditionally composed of bad sound, limited song choices, and frat boy margaritaville sing-alongs. We do it all wrong with flattering sound systems, songs that you actually want to sing but can’t find anywhere, and magical song slips that self destruct if “grease megamix” is written on them.”

      Tickets:
      $7 with reservation (email tickets@westsidedrama.com)
      $12 at the door

      About the Show:
      The Pajama Game was awarded the 1955 TONY for Best Musical and over half a century later claimed the award for Best Revival of a Musical – proving the story is truly timeless. With an energetic score by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross, The Pajama Game is brimming with songs and dances that have become musical theatre standards, including “Steam Heat” and “Hernando’s Hideaway.” Conditions at the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory are anything but peaceful, as sparks fly between new superintendent Sid Sorokin and Babe
      Williams, leader of the union grievance committee. Their stormy relationship comes to a head when the workers strike for a 7-1/2 cent pay increase, setting off not only a conflict between management and labor, but a battle of the sexes as well.

      Featuring plenty of fun and splashy production numbers, including a comic “dream ballet,” The Pajama Game is a perennial favorite, a sure-fire crowd-pleaser and a glowing example of solid, classic musical comedy.

      About the Show:
      The Pajama Game was awarded the 1955 TONY for Best Musical and over half a century later claimed the award for Best Revival of a Musical – proving the story is truly timeless. With an energetic score by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross, The Pajama Game is brimming with songs and dances that have become musical theatre standards, including “Steam Heat” and “Hernando’s Hideaway.” Conditions at the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory are anything but peaceful, as sparks fly between new superintendent Sid Sorokin and Babe
      Williams, leader of the union grievance committee. Their stormy relationship comes to a head when the workers strike for a 7-1/2 cent pay increase, setting off not only a conflict between management and labor, but a battle of the sexes as well.

      Featuring plenty of fun and splashy production numbers, including a comic “dream ballet,” The Pajama Game is a perennial favorite, a sure-fire crowd-pleaser and a glowing example of solid, classic musical comedy.

With an energetic score by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross, The Pajama Game is brimming with songs and dances that have become musical theatre standards, including “Steam Heat” and “Hernando’s Hideaway.” Conditions at the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory are anything but peaceful, as sparks fly between new superintendent Sid Sorokin and Babe
      Williams, leader of the union grievance committee. Their stormy relationship comes to a head when the workers strike for a 7-1/2 cent pay increase, setting off not only a conflict between management and labor, but a battle of the sexes as well.

      Featuring plenty of fun and splashy production numbers, including a comic “dream ballet,” The Pajama Game is a perennial favorite, a sure-fire crowd-pleaser and a glowing example of solid, classic musical comedy.

Instead, the return is prepared remotely and completed tax returns can be picked up within a week.

      This service is free and available to individuals. Reservations are not required. The free service is not available for business tax returns.
      Due to federal budget cuts the IRS is unable to provide the Library with certain tax forms and instruction booklets. Most IRS forms are available online at www.irs.gov. You may make black-and-white prints of the forms from Library computers for $.15 per page.

      Drop-off tax help is offered on a first come, first served basis.

      Required Documents
      To receive tax help, bring the following documents:
      - Photo identification (required)
      - Social Security cards for everyone listed on the tax return
      - Tax form SSA 1099 (Social Security benefits)
      - Medicare card (if Social Security number is followed by an “A”)
      - Official documents on Social Security Administration letterhead
      - Last year’s tax return, if available
      - All tax-related documents, such as W-2s and 1099s. Be prepared to provide information about health care coverage for each person on the return.

      Photocopies or computer print-outs of any these documents will not be accepted.

      Drinking Liberally gives like-minded, left-leaning individuals a place to talk politics. It’s an informal setting for folks to discuss and learn from their peers while hanging out in a casual environment. Here you can meet elected officials, candidates and other like-minded folks to share the bond of common ground. Some of us decide to eat dinner, while others just enjoy a glass of wine, beer or a nonalcoholic drink such as soda or tea.

      6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

      Councilmember Tom Rasmussen is holding a series of public meetings to gather community input about a proposal to establish a Neighborhood Conservation District (NCD) program in Seattle. This would be a voluntary program through which residents have a voice in the design of proposed developments.

      April 7, 6:00 pm
      High Point Community Center
      6920 34th Ave SW

      The purpose of a NCD program is to help neighborhoods keep their unique physical attributes through design guidelines and review. Under the proposed program the City’s Department of Neighborhoods would review requests of neighborhoods to become a Neighborhood Conservation District and would manage a Neighborhood Conservation District Board which would review development proposals to ensure that they are consistent with the distinctive physical character of a neighborhood.

      Qualifying neighborhoods would have strong design characteristics that the community would like to see preserved, but may not be eligible or appropriate for historic district status.

      Neighbors are invited to attend to learn more and share their perspective.

    11. WSHS’s Drama Club “Pajama Game” @ West Seattle High School
      7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

      West Seattle High School’s Drama Club and Music Department proudly presents:

      Pajama Game
      April 2, 3, 4, 8, 9 at 7:30 pm
      April 10 – special benefit performance at 8 pm

      Tickets:
      $7 with reservation (email tickets@westsidedrama.com)
      $12 at the door

      About the Show:
      The Pajama Game was awarded the 1955 TONY for Best Musical and over half a century later claimed the award for Best Revival of a Musical – proving the story is truly timeless. With an energetic score by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross, The Pajama Game is brimming with songs and dances that have become musical theatre standards, including “Steam Heat” and “Hernando’s Hideaway.” Conditions at the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory are anything but peaceful, as sparks fly between new superintendent Sid Sorokin and Babe
      Williams, leader of the union grievance committee. Their stormy relationship comes to a head when the workers strike for a 7-1/2 cent pay increase, setting off not only a conflict between management and labor, but a battle of the sexes as well.

      Featuring plenty of fun and splashy production numbers, including a comic “dream ballet,” The Pajama Game is a perennial favorite, a sure-fire crowd-pleaser and a glowing example of solid, classic musical comedy.

      Our Daily Homage
      Eric Carson
      Mark Daughhetee
      Jenny Fillius

      M​ARCH 12 – MAY 2, 2015
      ​Reception & Artist Talks: Thursday, ​April 9th, 6-9pm

      With sculpture, drawing and painting, Eric Carson, Mark Daughhetee, and Jenny Fillius each work with found mythology to suggest themes of reclamation and devotion in our contemporary world.

      Eric Carson uses the format of the mandala [the Hindu/Buddhist ritualistic design that organizes a spiritual experience in visual terms] to symbolically connect the world’s religions to each other, and to comment on the intersection of those beliefs with political and cultural issues. The way these line-based drawings are made—as well as their content—suggests a hybrid of references, from Western cartoons to Hieronymus Bosch to Hindu devotional painting. Carson writes, “These pieces present insight traditions around the world as petals of the same flower, not creeds to divide by or kill for.”

      Mark Daughhetee’s Stations series of assemblage sculptures pay homage to old TV shows like Bonanza and The Lawrence Welk Show. Plastic cowboys stand stoically among clumps of hobby shop moss under a peaked roof. The format is reminiscent of compositions from the Renaissance and inspired by roadside memorials, as well as Thai spirit houses. Humor, child-like reverence for TV, and manhood (as defined by old Hollywood) are the main characters. Daughhetee writes, “Like one’s journey through life, each television program, in its turn, occupied center stage for a while and left when the curtain fell for the last time.”

      Describing her process, Jenny Fillius writes “Being observant, anything can trigger an idea—an overheard expression, something on the street, an experience, the metal, a broken tin toy; literally anything.” Fillius finds and repurposes decorative sheet metal in the form of broken toys and used tin food containers to make sculptures suggestive of the retablos of Mexican folk art. Since most of the metal Fillius uses appears to have come from one’s childhood, or one’s parent’s childhood, the narratives that ensue are partly-articulated hints that nostalgia has gone awry in some way that we in 2015 are privy to.

When you provide good habitat for birds and beneficial insects, they will in turn provide you with natural pest and weed control, increasing your garden’s health while decreasing your maintenance time.

      This workshop will teach you about the plants and design techniques that attract these delightful creatures to visit and live in your garden. We will also cover problematic wildlife and how to manage them in the garden. A Village Green Perennial Nursery garden tour and a chance to pick up some great wildlife friendly plants to take home for your own garden is included. Informational brochures will be available. Dress for the weather, we will be outside. Street parking, walk down driveway to back of house. Village Green is a residence/business/permaculture farm and garden.

      What is certain in life beyond death and taxes is poetry. From the Tuareg nomads of Niger to the troubadours of France, people from every culture connect to the spoken word. For the April 15th, 2015 edition of WordsWest Literary Series. Washington poet Kelli Russell Agodon and Massachusetts poet, January Gill O’Neil, will join us for a night of poetry, including a few poetry exercises. This month WordsWest is again very grateful for a grant from Poets & Writers that allows WorsdWest to pay the poets for their time and talent.

      Kelli Russell Agodon is an award-winning poet, writer, and editor from the Pacific Northwest. Her most recent collection is Hourglass Museum (White Pine Press, 2014) and The Daily Poet: Day-By-Day Prompts for Your Writing Practice, which she coauthored with Martha Silano. Her second collection, Letters from the Emily Dickinson Room was chosen by Carl Dennis for the winner of the White Pine Press Book Prize, and was also the Winner of ForeWord Magazine’s Book of the Year in Poetry as well as a Finalist for the Washington State Book Prize. Her other books include Small Knots, Geography, and Fire On Her Tongue: An Anthology of Contemporary Women’s Poetry. Kelli is the cofounder of Two Sylvias Press and is a Co-Director of Poets on the Coast: A Retreat for Women Poets. www.agodon.com

      January Gill O’Neil, visiting for one night only from Salem, Massachusetts, is the author of the recently released Misery Islands (fall 2014) and Underlife (2009), both published by CavanKerry Press. She is the executive director of the Massachusetts Poetry Festival and an assistant professor of English at Salem State University. You can follow her ‘Poet Mom’ blog at http://poetmom.blogspot.com.

      Every third Wednesday, 7pm, at C & P Coffee Company, WordsWest hosts literary events that range from readings by published local and national authors, to craft discussions and guided writing explorations for every experience level. Each month a community member from a local, independent business shares his or her favorite poem as part of the Favorite Poem Project. On April 15th, we welcome Paul Nojaim of West Seattle Acupuncture.

      WordsWest is curated by West Seattle writers Katy E. Ellis , Susan Rich , and Harold Taw .

      Gene Tagaban, Mary Anne Moorman, and Lorraine Bayes will entertain, inspire, and delight us with their storytelling gifts, as we put a special focus on New Seeds, New Growth: our up and coming youth. A short video will be shown about the youths in the Delridge neighborhood who were inspired by one of last year’s stories to paint a 210′ mural of the history of the Duwamish River. James Rasmussen from the Duwamish River Clean-up Coalition / TAG will update us on plans to clean the river. We may have a few other surprises, too!. Food and refreshments will be on hand. Donations welcome. Come and enjoy! Be a part of something special!

      Made possible in part by a grant from the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods / Neighborhood Matching Fund, The Duwamish Longhouse and Cultural Center, and other friends of the Seattle Storytellers Guild.

We do it all wrong with flattering sound systems, songs that you actually want to sing but can’t find anywhere, and magical song slips that self destruct if “grease megamix” is written on them.”
