Summer solstice sunset viewing at Solstice Park @ Solstice Park
Jun 20 @ 8:45 pm – 9:45 pm

From Alice Enevoldsen of Alice’s Astro Info and NASA Solar System Ambassador fame:

It’s time for the seasonal sunset watch!

When: Saturday, June 20, 2016 at 9:00 pm (so come at 8:45 pm)
Actual sunset is supposed to be at 9:11 pm, but we have noticed that the Sun sets about 10 minutes earlier than the USNO says, because of the horizon altitude.

Where: Solstice Park — all the way up the hill from the tennis courts (or, if you’re not in Seattle, wherever you have a view of the western horizon!)

Who: Everyone welcome, as usual.

Come watch the sunset at Solstice Park in West Seattle. It’ll be there even if it is cloudy because sometimes the Sun peeks through just as it begins to set, but if it is driving rain or sleet I’m staying home.

This event is my part of the NASA’s Solar System Ambassador program, and thanks to West Seattle Blog for publicizing all of them!

Everyone is welcome, see you there!

Each contestant is immediately judged by five members of the audience, who have been selected before the show to be judges. They rank each punner on a scale of 1 to 10, often with hilariously long decimals and other commentary.

Then they do it again, only this time contestants get their prompts on stage and only have 30 seconds to think and another two minutes to make puns.

The top four contestants go head to head in a final pun-off.

Dermody, Johnson and Miller Sing & Play the Blues @ Kenyon Hall
Jun 24 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Acoustic Blues at its finest, featuring three masters of the genre, Grant Dermody, Orville Johnson, and John Miller. All of these superb musicians have played, studied, and taught others about country blues for most of their lives. They got together a few years ago when they were on staff at the Port Townsend Blues Workshop. Since then
they’ve created two CDs, and are bringing their ensemble back to Kenyon Hall for another rollicking evening.

As Orville says, “The blues in its purest form doesn’t require screaming electric guitars, pounding drums, and flashing lights. A harmonica, a mandolin, an acoustic guitar, and the kind of singing that has been marinated in three lifetimes of soulful music making is more than enough.”

To hear a sample of their artistry, please visit www.johnsonmilleranddermody.com, then join us for an evening of delicious down-home delights.

Reserved table seats are $14 and row seating is $12 general and $10 seniors. With a reservation, row seating is only $10 general and $8 seniors. Elementary, middle & high school students are $5. Pre-school children are free. To make a reservation, please e-mail kenyonhall@earthlink.net. You’ll receive an e-mail confirming your reservation.

Jun 25 – Jun 26 all-day

Seattle Amateur Radio Club Field Day at South Seattle College (WSB sponsor):

Members of the Puget Sound Repeater Group (PSRG) and the Seattle Auxiliary Communications Service (ACS) will be participating in the national Amateur Radio Field Day exercise, June 25–26, 2016 South Seattle College (behind Olympic Hall) in West Seattle. Since 1933, ham radio operators across North America have established temporary ham radio stations in public locations during Field Day to showcase the science and skill of Amateur Radio. This event is open to the public and all are encouraged to attend.

For more than 100 years, Amateur Radio — sometimes called ham radio — has allowed people from all walks of life to experiment with electronics and communications techniques, as well as provide a free public service to their communities during a disaster, all without needing a cell phone or the Internet. Field Day demonstrates ham radio’s ability to work reliably under any conditions from almost any location and create an independent communications network. Over 45,000 people from thousands of locations participated in Field Day in 2015.

Anyone can come to this Field Day event and get on-the-air! A special station will be staffed with a licensed mentor for use by newcomers or those interested in ham radio including youth and adults. This station allows people who have never used a ham radio to do so, and allow people to explore the world. Even licensed individuals can explore operating on in ways new to them. The site is normally an empty field, but for Field Day it will be filled with numerous antenna masts, four operating radio stations, and emergency power. Which demonstrates radio operation on multiple frequencies using different communications techniques without normal power or facilities. Field Day is practice for operating under emergency or disaster conditions.

“It’s easy for anyone to pick up a computer or Smartphone, connect to the Internet and communicate, with no knowledge of how the devices function or connect to each other,” said Sean Kutzko of the American Radio Relay League, the national association for Amateur Radio. “But if there’s an interruption of service or you’re out of range of a cell tower, you have no way to communicate. Ham radio functions completely independent of the Internet or cell phone infrastructure, can interface with tablets or Smartphones, and can be set up almost anywhere in minutes. That’s the beauty of Amateur Radio during a communications outage.”

“Hams can literally throw a wire in a tree for an antenna, connect it to a battery-powered transmitter and communicate halfway around the world,” Kutzko added. “Hams do this by using a layer of Earth’s atmosphere as a sort of mirror for radio waves. In today’s electronic do-it-yourself (DIY) environment, ham radio remains one of the best ways for people to learn about electronics, physics, meteorology, and numerous other scientific disciplines, and is a huge asset to any community during disasters if the standard communication
infrastructure goes down.”

Anyone may become a licensed Amateur Radio operator. There are over 725,000 licensed hams in the United States, as young as 5 and as old as 100. And with clubs such as ACS and PSRG, it’s easy for anybody to get involved right here in Seattle.

For more information about Field Day and the organization, contact ACS at www.seattleacs.org and PSRG at www.psrg.org or visit www.arrl.org/what-is-ham-radio.

Community focus group: Crime and police issues @ SPD SW Precinct
Jun 29 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Jennifer Burbridge, the Seattle University Graduate Research Analyst who has been working with Southwest Precinct police is holding community meetings again this year to hear from you.

Last summer I conducted crime and safety focus groups with all the micro-communities in the Southwest Precinct. These focus groups were semi-structured and lasted about 1 hour. Some of these focus groups were held during regularly scheduled community meetings, and others were held as separate meetings.

This summer, I will be conducting focus groups again! I am again interested in talking to all the micro-communities in the Southwest Precinct area about knowledge of the micro-community policing plan project, interactions with the Seattle Police Department, crime and safety concerns and suggested improvements for each of your unique neighborhoods!

In case residents are unsure what community they fall under, the following website has an MCPP locator map, where residents can see the boundaries for the micro-communities throughout West Seattle, with the exception of the micro-community of South Delridge/Delridge Triangle (this micro-community has not been updated on the SPD map yet): http://www.seattle.gov/Police/MCPP/default.htm

Here is a list of the focus groups I have scheduled as of right now, including what community it is focusing on and when/where the focus group is being held:

Community focus group: Crime and police issues @ SPD SW Precinct
Jun 30 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Jennifer Burbridge, the Seattle University Graduate Research Analyst who has been working with Southwest Precinct police is holding community meetings again this year to hear from you.

Last summer I conducted crime and safety focus groups with all the micro-communities in the Southwest Precinct. These focus groups were semi-structured and lasted about 1 hour. Some of these focus groups were held during regularly scheduled community meetings, and others were held as separate meetings.

This summer, I will be conducting focus groups again! I am again interested in talking to all the micro-communities in the Southwest Precinct area about knowledge of the micro-community policing plan project, interactions with the Seattle Police Department, crime and safety concerns and suggested improvements for each of your unique neighborhoods!

In case residents are unsure what community they fall under, the following website has an MCPP locator map, where residents can see the boundaries for the micro-communities throughout West Seattle, with the exception of the micro-community of South Delridge/Delridge Triangle (this micro-community has not been updated on the SPD map yet): http://www.seattle.gov/Police/MCPP/default.htm

Here is a list of the focus groups I have scheduled as of right now, including what community it is focusing on and when/where the focus group is being held:

Wednesday June 29th 6-7 pm ALASKA JUNCTION (at the SW Precinct community meeting room- 2300 SW Webster St)

Find It on Friday! begins @ High Point & South Park Libraries
Jul 1 @ 11:00 am – 6:00 pm

Find It on Friday! The Seattle Public Library Releases Collectible Cards for Branches With New Friday Hours:

Thanks to funds from the seven-year, 2012 voter-approved Library levy, The Seattle Public Library will restore Friday operating hours at the High Point, International District/Chinatown, South Park and University branches starting July 1.

These four Library locations will now be open every day of the week. New open hours will be: 1 pm to 8 pm Monday and Tuesday, 11 am to 6 pm Wednesday through Saturday and 1 pm to 5 pm Sunday.

To celebrate, the Library is launching “Find it on Friday!” with four collectible trading cards featuring architectural images from the branches with new Friday open hours. For a limited time, Library patrons can pick up a branch trading card at each of the four locations with newly added Friday hours. When patrons locate where the photo on the card was taken, they will receive a collectible stamp.

HOW TO PLAY

1. Pick up a branch trading card from Library staff.
2. Find the spot at the branch where the photo on the card was taken.
3. Tell Library staff the location of the photo spot is and ask for a stamp.
4. Did you Find it on Friday? In addition to a collectible stamp, you get a gold star!

Cards and stamps can be collected by visiting the High Point, International District/Chinatown, South Park and University branches from July 1 until Aug. 31, 2016. Cards for other Library locations will be available later this year.

To show love for the Library, patrons are encouraged to take a selfie with their trading cards and share it on social media using #finditatspl.

For more information, visit www.spl.org/finditonfriday, call the Library at 206-386-4636 or Ask a Librarian.

Friday Hours Return to High Point and South Park Libraries
Jul 1 @ 11:00 am – 6:00 pm

Thanks to funds from the seven-year, 2012 voter-approved Library levy, The Seattle Public Library will restore Friday operating hours to four neighborhood branch libraries whose hours were reduced during recession-related budget cuts.

The High Point, International District/Chinatown, South Park and University branches will all have restored Friday hours as of July 1.

The new open hours at the four branches will be: 1 pm to 8 pm Monday and Tuesday, 11 am to 6 pm Wednesday through Saturday and 1 pm to 5 pm Sunday.

“We are so glad to be able to restore hours at these four branches,” City Librarian Marcellus Turner said. “Expanding Library hours in neighborhoods that currently have limited access continues to be a priority.”

When the levy passed in August 2012, 15 of the Library’s 27 locations were closed on Fridays and Sundays. In 2013 the levy funded the restoration of Sunday hours at all locations and the expansion of the Columbia and Northgate branches into branches operating seven days a week, but patrons often tell the Library they wish more branches were open on Fridays.

Last year, the Library Board prioritized adding open hours at several branches when a limited amount of funds became available from inflation savings from the levy. The $378,000 in levy funds to restore Friday hours at the four branches were approved as part of the Library’s 2016 Operations Plan.

The branches were selected after an administrative review of traditional Library statistics, community demographics, income distribution, transportation links, key partnerships, internet and Wi-Fi sessions, and review by a Library staff team involved in the city’s Race and Social Justice Initiative and more.

For more information, call the Library at 206-386-4636 or

Skating Polly performs free all-ages show @ Easy Street Records
Jul 2 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Skating Polly performs live at Easy Street Records on Saturday, July 2nd at 7:00 pm. Free and All Ages!

What do X, Babes In Toyland, Deerhoof, Flaming Lips, Mike Watt, Ty Segall, Rosanne Cash, Sean Lennon, Rodney Bingenheimer and the man who broke grunge, Everett True, have in common? They all love Oklahoma sister duo Skating Polly.

While still in middle school, Skating Polly recorded an album in their living room and called it Taking Over the World. Today, it seems like they could actually do that. The band’s latest effort, The Big Fit, is their most fully realized collection of head-bopping, not quite sugar-sweet pop music infused with visceral, distortion-drenched punk sounds. It’s raw, infectious, and inciting. It’s real.

Stepsisters Peyton Bighorse and Kelli Mayo describe their sound as “a little bit musically schizophrenic.” Their songs tend to fluctuate in tone and intensity. A whisper. A scream. A piano ballad right next to a punk punch in the throat. It’s all very “ugly pop,” as they like to point out.

It’s been six years since those original living room recordings, and the band has released three more albums, toured extensively in both the U.S. and the U.K. (with their idols, Babes in Toyland), and turned many of their heroes into vocal fans. They’re even the subject of an upcoming documentary directed by Henry Mortensen (son of Viggo Mortensen and Exene Cervenka). What’s the fuss about? Mayo sums it up: “I think people can tell we’re pretty authentic. People can tell when songs don’t mean it, no matter what the song’s about. We try to be ourselves…and to make everything catchy.”

Skating Polly is currently on tour with Deerhoof, with a show scheduled at Neumos on July 9th. Don’t miss that show, but also come and see Skating Polly for free at Easy Street on July 2nd! All-ages!

Not only will you witness the Puget Sound’s multitude of marine plants and animals, but you’ll also see advocates for these living wonders sharing their knowledge with beach goers – Beach Naturalists.

Beach Naturalists are local citizens who care about Puget Sound beaches and want to help protect them. More than 100 have volunteered to help people learn and enjoy area beaches this summer. Be sure to visit a local beach this summer and meet the Beach Naturalists. They know their beaches. They can help you enjoy the beach without harming it. They can tell you what sea stars eat, why barnacles stand on their heads and how moon snails lay their eggs. “The enthusiasm and excitement of our Beach Naturalists transfers directly to the public-it’s a wonderful infectious thing!” beams Janice Mathisen, Community Outreach at the Seattle Aquarium. “To be able to meet a family and educate them on what a treasure we have here in Puget Sound is amazing.”

Words, Writers & West Seattle: Once and Future River: Reclaiming the Duwamish @ Barnes and Noble, Westwood Village
Jul 8 @ 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm

Once and Future River: Reclaiming the Duwamish, is just published with the University of Washington Press and is about the damaged landscape of Seattle’s Duwamish River, finding hope in the story of our past, present and future impact on the earth. The project has also been honored with sponsorship from Blue Earth Alliance.

Photographer Tom Reese and journalist Eric Wagner’s presentation is rich with photos from their new book,and they discuss local efforts to reclaim the river, what its future might look like, and how life can thrive even in the murky waters of this iconic river.

The Southwest Seattle Historical Society sponsors this Words, Writers & West Seattle” target=”_blank”>free book-talk series and this presentation of Once and Future River, the 34th installment of the series, will take place at 5 pm Friday, July 8th, 2016, at Barnes & Noble/Westwood Village.

Declared a Superfund site in 2001, the Duwamish River has faced a battered history; it’s been straightened, dumped into by over 40 companies, and neglected to the degree that the river now has only a small percentage of its original natural habitat. As Seattle joined several other cities in a lawsuit against Monsanto to help pay for cleanup, and Boeing invests millions into restoration, the hope for rejuvenation seems positive but according to Reese and Wagner, reclamation of the Duwamish is nothing new.

Once and Future River has been called an instant classic. It illuminates what was lost in destroying the lower Duwamish River, and what our souls can gain from restoring it. Photographer Tom Reese and author Eric Wagner make tragic poetry out of a riverscape damaged and overlooked for a century, and miraculously generate hope from neglect. “Describing the Duwamish River, poet Richard Hugo wrote: ‘This river’s curves are slow and sick,’ and just as many of Hugo’s first poems rose up along that river, Tom Reese has turned his camera on the waterway for a number of years. The resulting photographs, with clarity and ache, bring us close up to this ruin of a river and our desperate attempts to restore it.”

Reese’s work as a newspaper and magazine photojournalist has been nominated for Pulitzer Prizes in breaking news photography, feature photography and explanatory reporting during his career at the Seattle Times. Currently he is an independent photographer and editor based in Seattle, where he lives with his family. Recent books and projects focus on the complex relationship between humans and the rest
of the natural world. Wagner writes from Seattle, where he lives with his wife and daughter. He has a Ph.D. in biology from the University of Washington, for work he did on Magellanic penguins in Argentina and he is currently working on a book about penguins.

“Words, Writers & West Seattle’s” next book-talk is scheduled for August 5th and will feature Georgie Kunkel and her autobiography, Color Me Feminist, that includes her activities in the women’s movement years. For videos on these and other authors’ presentations, visit: www.loghousemuseum.info/events/words-writers-and-west-seattle. Additional information on future presentations can be obtained by contacting Dora-Faye Hendricks, Chair, “Words, Writers & West Seattle” by phone at 206-280-9983 or by e-mail at Dora-Faye@comcast.net.

*SOLD OUT* Uncle Bonsai performs @ Kenyon Hall
Jul 9 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

*Kenyon Hall says this show is SOLD OUT*

Uncle Bonsai comes to Kenyon Hall on July 9th at 7:30 pm:

Imagine what might happen if Tim Burton hijacked the Andrew’s Sisters en route to a Stephen Sondheim festival with The Beatles and Tom Lehrer in the sidecar; you’d get Seattle super-harmonizers Uncle Bonsai. With just three voices and an acoustic guitar, Uncle Bonsai presents an often dizzying vocal array of intricate harmony. Their songs, dark and hilarious at times, just as often delight with moments of great insight and beauty. The trio aligns itself with the under-achiever, the dejected, the outsider, the black sheep. Densely-packed lyrics fly by in a whirr at times, and take a skewed stance on topics such as first-world problems, the creation of the universe, the afterlife, and, of course, holidays with the family.

Front reserved table seats are $14 and row seating is $12 general and $10 seniors. With a reservation, row seating is only $10 general and $8 seniors. Elementary, middle & high school students are $5. Pre-school children are free.

To make a reservation, please e-mail kenyonhall@earthlink.net with your request; you’ll receive an e-mail confirming your reservation. For complete program information, please visit www.kenyonhall.org.
