Peaceful Parent, Happy Kids @ Brockey Center at South Seattle College
Mar 21 @ 7:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Dr. Laura Markham,, Tuesday, March 21st, 7 pm, Brockey Center at South Seattle College

Peaceful Parent, Happy Kids: How to help children WANT to cooperate without yelling, bribes, threats or punishment

Description:

Are you tired of battling with your child? Do you wish you knew how to get your child cooperating without yelling and threats? Are you trying to find the sweet spot between spoiling and strict? Dr. Laura Markham gives you practical everyday strategies to help you raise a child who WANTS to cooperate, by working with your child rather than trying to manipulate or control.

No parent is peaceful all the time, but it’s completely possible to create a more peaceful home where affection, connection and humor help you resolve conflict happily, and where kids WANT to follow your lead.

In this talk, you’ll have a chance to ask questions about your own parenting, and you’ll learn:

· Why children misbehave — and how to help them WANT To Cooperate without yelling, threats, bribes or consequences

· What research shows about how children develop self-­discipline

· The four power tools you can use to connect with children and help them with their emotions

· Why yelling and timeouts actually cause more misbehavior

· How you can create the relationship you want with your child

· Two Hour Talk includes 1 hour Q and A to help parents apply these ideas to their own families.

Dr. Laura Markham trained as a Clinical Psychologist, earning her PhD from Columbia University. She is the mother of two children, now ages 20 and 24. Dr. Laura is the author of the book Peaceful Parent, Happy Kids: How to Stop Yelling and Start Connecting and Peaceful Parent, Happy Siblings: How To Stop the Fighting and Raise Friends for Life. You can find her online at http://www.ahaparenting.com

‘The Ship Sails Again’: Admiral Theater celebration
Mar 22 @ 5:00 pm – 11:00 pm

Just two years shy of 100 years old, the Historic Admiral Theater will celebrate its recent $1.7 million renovation with a unique evening saluting four key periods in the history of the art-deco, nautical-themed moviehouse.

The event on the evening of Wednesday, March 22, is called “The Ship Sails Again: Four Screens, Four Eras.” Launching the event will be an indoor ribbon-cutting (using film instead of ribbon!). Also, the long-dormant outdoor ticket booth will come alive with public office-holders and volunteers distributing keepsake postcards commemorating the evening.

On the bill for this special evening will be four programs, each representing a turning point in the theater’s history and featuring films that have played the Admiral or its predecessor, the Portola Theater (which was in the building that is the current theater’s lobby):

n ERA ONE, the Portola Theater’s opening in 1919: A slate of classic silent films: Charlie Chaplin’s war parody “Shoulder Arms” (1918), plus three shorts, Harold Lloyd’s “The Marathon” (1919) and Buster Keaton’s “One Week” (1920) and “Cops” (1922). “Shoulder Arms” played the Portola Theater in August 1927. Showtimes: 6:50 and 8:40 p.m.

n ERA TWO, the Admiral Theater’s opening on Jan. 22, 1942: The Humphrey Bogart detective story “The Maltese Falcon” (1941), which played the Admiral Theater six weeks after it opened in 1942. Showtimes: 6:30 and 8:50 p.m.

n ERA THREE, the Admiral’s twinning in spring 1973: The nostalgic comedy “American Graffiti” (1973), which played the Admiral Theater in August 1974. Showtimes: 6:40 and 9 p.m.

n ERA FOUR, the renovation of the Admiral to four screens in fall 2016: The new Disney fantasy “Beauty and the Beast” (2017), which is slated to open at the Admiral on the previous Friday, March 17. Showtimes: 6:20 and 9:10 p.m.

Tickets for each program will be regular prices: $11.50 for adults, $9.50 for children (under 13) and seniors (60+) and $10.50 military. Those purchasing a pair of tickets for an early-evening show and late-evening show will receive a complimentary bag of the Admiral’s famous popcorn.

Advance ticket purchases are encouraged because of the expected crowds that evening. Advance tickets can be purchased at the theater, 2343 California Ave. S.W., or online at farawayentertainment.com/location/admiral-theater/ (click “Buy Tickets Online” in upper right corner).

The ribbon/film-cutting ceremony will take place at about 5:30 p.m. on the stairs inside the theater lobby. Participating in the ceremony will be a pair of public officials and West Seattle residents:

n Seattle City Council member Lisa Herbold, of District 1 (West Seattle and South Park), marking the city’s role in the 1989 landmarking of the Historic Admiral Theater, resulting from a grassroots campaign led by the Southwest Seattle Historical Society.

n King County Council Chair Joe McDermott, of District 8 (West Seattle, Vashon Island and parts of downtown), who championed the 4Culture “Building for Culture” grant of $95,000 that assisted in the renovation of the Historic Admiral Theater in 2016.

Also participating in the ceremony will be representatives of Far Away Entertainment, which operates the Historic Admiral Theater, and the Southwest Seattle Historical Society.

Other participants will include West Seattle residents Maryanne Tagney and David Jones, winners of a Historic Admiral Theater package at the historical society’s 2016 Champagne Gala Brunch.

The outdoor ticket booth will be open for the distribution of keepsake postcards at 5 p.m. Working the booth in shifts will be Herbold, McDermott and volunteers from the Southwest Seattle Historical Society.

Before each screening that evening, the Southwest Seattle Historical Society will speak briefly about plans to restore the 1942 underwater murals that are now exposed on the interior walls of the outside walls of the theater. In the lobby, the historical society also will have an informational booth about the mural restoration.

For more information on “The Ship Sails Again: Four Screens, Four Eras,” contact Emily Adamson of Far Away Entertainment at 206-930-3383, emilydance@gmail.com, or Clay Eals of the Southwest Seattle Historical Society at 206-484-8008 or clay.eals@loghousemuseum.info.

Washington State’s Regional Fishery Enhancement Groups: Making a Real Difference for Salmon (and Orcas) @ C & P Coffee Company
Mar 30 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Washington State’s Regional Fishery Enhancement Groups: Making a Real Difference for Salmon (and Orcas)

Presentation by Jeanette Dorner
When: Thursday March 30, 7:00 – 8:30 pm.
Where: C&P Coffee Company, 5612 California Ave SW
Cost: $5 suggested donation; kids free!

Presented by The Whale Trail

Salmon, the primary food for our endangered orcas (J, K and L pods), are in trouble. Almost 20 years ago the state of Washington created a network of 14 non-profits to work with local communities on salmon habitat restoration projects in different watersheds.

These Regional Fishery Enhancement Groups have worked since then with private landowners and community partners to identify and implement valuable projects that can help increase the number of salmon returning to Washington state.

The latest report on the state of Washingtons salmon shows that overall the recovery of endangered salmon is mixed and salmon populations in Puget Sound are still declining. It is even more important to support and invest in these efforts to restore habitat.

Jeanette will share what the Regional Fishery Enhancement Groups across the state are doing to make a difference and also about the group in Seattles backyard: the Mid Sound Fishery Enhancement Group and how you can help.

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

About the Speaker

Jeanette Dorner has a long history working to recover salmon in Puget Sound. She worked for 11 years as the Salmon Recovery Program Manager with the Nisqually Tribe, coordinating the protection and restoration of salmon habitat in the Nisqually watershed. She played a lead role in helping facilitate with partners major salmon restoration projects including the 900 acre restoration of the Nisqually Estuary. She then worked as the Director of Ecosystem and Salmon Recovery at the Puget Sound Partnership, supporting the work of hundreds of partners around Puget Sound to protect, restore and clean up their rivers, streams and Puget Sound shorelines.

In January of this year Jeanette became the Executive Director of the Mid Sound Fishery Enhancement Group. In her new role she is focused on working to grow the organization to achieve a broader impact on restoring salmon habitat in the Mid Sound area which includes the Green – Duwamish watershed, the Cedar/Sammamish/Lake Washington watershed, the watersheds of Eastern Kitsap County which drain into Central Puget Sound, and all the Puget Sound shorelines in the Central Puget Sound area in King County and Kitsap County.

Jeanette is also the mother to two wonderful kids – a thirteen year old boy and a seven year old girl. Part of her passion to recover salmon habitat and to preserve and protect this beautiful place we call home is to try to pass on to her children a home where they can continue to enjoy the natural wonders of this place with their families – going to watch orcas swimming through Puget Sound, visiting salmon spawning in our local streams, and hiking in the majestic forests of the Pacific Northwest.

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. Our overarching goal is to ensure the southern resident orcas recover from the threat of extinction.

Through our current sites and signs, including two on every Washington State ferry, we reach more than 50 million people each year. The Whale Trail is currently adding new sites along the west coast, from California to British Columbia, throughout the southern resident orcas’ range and beyond.

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. Our BC team is led by the the BC Cetacean Sighting Network. Many members of the Whale Trail teams met when they worked together to return Springer, the orphaned orca, to her pod.

The Whale Trail is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, headquartered in West Seattle. Join us!

Bonnie & Clyde

Mar 30, 31, April 1, 5, 6, 7. There will be a special performance on April 1st to raise funds for musical rights, costumes, props and building supplies.

Join us for a thrilling musical with a non-traditional score combining blues, gospel and rockabilly music. At the height of the Great Depression, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow went from two small-town nobodies in West Texas to America’s most renowned folk heroes and Texas law enforcement’s worst nightmares. Fearless, shameless and alluring, the Tony-nominated Bonnie & Clyde, from the legendary Frank Wildhorn (Jekyll & Hyde, Civil War, Dracula) is the electrifying story of love, adventure and crime that captured the attention of an entire country. When Bonnie and Clyde meet, their mutual craving for excitement and fame immediately sets them on a mission to chase their dreams. Their bold and reckless behavior turns the young lovers’ thrilling adventure into a downward spiral, putting themselves and their loved ones in trouble with the law. Forced to stay on the run, the lovers resort to robbery and murder to survive. As the infamous duo’s fame grows bigger, their inevitable end draws nearer.

Tickets are $10 with reservation, $15 at the door.

Forced to stay on the run, the lovers resort to robbery and murder to survive. As the infamous duo’s fame grows bigger, their inevitable end draws nearer.

Please join us for our next JuNO meeting with two Guest Speakers from Seattle Parks & Recreation Department Tuesday April 4th 6:30-7:30 pm at the WS Senior Center – Nucor Room.

Superintendent Jesus Aguirre is sending staff representatives to discuss the Open Space or Green Space opportunities for the West Seattle Junction Urban Village – past/present/future. JuNO members learned about a year ago that the WS Golf Course and WS Stadium spaces were included in the open space/green space quotas which made our neighborhood appear that we are actually ‘over’ the amount of green space needed for our neighborhood. We were shocked to learn this as the Golf course and Stadium are have a cyclone fence around them and are not truly open spaces like Hiawatha Park or Lincoln Park.

Guest Speakers:
Kathleen Conner – Major Projects & Planning Manager
Paul Wilkenson – Golf Programs Manager

Bonnie & Clyde

Mar 30, 31, April 1, 5, 6, 7. There will be a special performance on April 1st to raise funds for musical rights, costumes, props and building supplies.

Join us for a thrilling musical with a non-traditional score combining blues, gospel and rockabilly music. At the height of the Great Depression, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow went from two small-town nobodies in West Texas to America’s most renowned folk heroes and Texas law enforcement’s worst nightmares. Fearless, shameless and alluring, the Tony-nominated Bonnie & Clyde, from the legendary Frank Wildhorn (Jekyll & Hyde, Civil War, Dracula) is the electrifying story of love, adventure and crime that captured the attention of an entire country. When Bonnie and Clyde meet, their mutual craving for excitement and fame immediately sets them on a mission to chase their dreams. Their bold and reckless behavior turns the young lovers’ thrilling adventure into a downward spiral, putting themselves and their loved ones in trouble with the law. Forced to stay on the run, the lovers resort to robbery and murder to survive. As the infamous duo’s fame grows bigger, their inevitable end draws nearer.

Green Wall installation ceremony @ South Park Library
Apr 8 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

Community, non-profits, and government are collaborating to take action on community and health priorities through an innovative green solution located at the South Park Branch of The Seattle Public Library (8604 8th Ave S, 98108).

To reduce the impact of air pollution, the Duwamish River Cleanup Coalition/Technical Advisory Group (DRCC/TAG), and Just Health Action (JHA) are partnering with the South Park Branch to install 7 artistic green wall panels, each 3 feet wide by 5 feet tall, creating a free standing vegetated trellis system.

When fully grown in, these panels of green leaves will filter the particulates passing through it and absorb air pollution. In addition, these climbing vines and native plants will provide habitat and beautify areas while simultaneously providing water quality benefits.

The historically industrial neighborhood in the South end of Seattle has long dealt with environmental hazards and health issues stemming from misuse by industry. Zip Code 98108, home to the Duwamish Valley, has the worst air pollution in the city of Seattle and the neighborhoods of South Park and Georgetown include the highest hospitalization rates for childhood asthma, as highlighted in the Cumulative Health Impacts Analysis published by JHA and DRCC/TAG in 2013.

The Duwamish Valley community continually identifies addressing air pollution as a top health priority. Based on this, DRCC/TAG, JHA, project partners, and the community worked together to gather information on the sources of air pollution and take action to reduce residents’ exposure to air pollution through the Duwamish Community Action for Clean Air project, funded by the U.S. EPA Environmental Justice Cooperative Problem Solving Agreement (EJCPSA).

Installation and Inauguration Day!

On Saturday, April 8th, at 11 am the community and others are invited to our installation ceremony. The Duwamish Valley Youth Corps will be on site planting climbing vines and spreading mulch. The Youth Corps have been learning about air pollution and taking action in the community to reduce it, including planting trees, building and distributing home air filters, and educating community members.

The Seattle Park District provided the funding for this play area improvement project. Approved by Seattle voters in 2014, the Seattle Park District provides more than $47 million a year in long-term funding for Seattle Parks and Recreation including maintenance of parklands and facilities, operation of community centers and recreation programs, and development of new neighborhood parks on previously acquired sites.

Walking the labyrinth can clear the mind, give insight, and soothe your heart. The simplistic symmetry is made even more meaningful when accompanied by music.

We extend an invitation to all in the community as we move through Lent and Holy Week and into the Joy of Easter.
