Retirement Celebration for Dr. Paul Smith @ West Side Presbyterian Church
Jun 12 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

West Side Presbyterian Church is announcing the retirement of its senior pastor and inviting the community to a celebration:

June 12th will mark the end of 45 years of service and vocational ministry for Dr. Paul R. Smith of West Seattle. He has been the senior pastor at West Side Presbyterian Church (PCUSA) since 1981, when he moved with his family from Pennsylvania to Seattle.

A retirement celebration for Dr. Paul Smith will be held:

June 12, Open House 1:00-4:00
(Special program begins at 2:00)
West Side Presbyterian Church

The public is welcome.

More information about the celebration is on the WSPC website.

* * *
In the 35 years since arriving in the NW, he has served as the senior pastor of West Side Presbyterian Church. A recent tally showed he had officiated 180 wedding ceremonies, led 256 memorial services, and baptized more than 430 children and adults. He has also been active in renewal ministries with the Presbyterian Church (USA) and has served the church both locally and nationally in promoting and equipping churches for evangelism.

Born November 25, 1945, Paul is the son of a banker and one of six children. He grew up in a small ranching town in Western South Dakota near Badlands National Park. He graduated with honors from Wheaton College in Wheaton, IL, before marrying his wife, Carreen Armerding and earning an MDiv from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in Boston, MA.

For the first ten years of his ministry, Dr. Smith served as Assistant Pastor and then Senior Pastor of Immanuel Presbyterian Church in McKeesport, PA.

He completed his Doctorate of Ministry from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School shortly after arriving in Seattle. And in the years since, he’s written four books: Jesus, Meet him again for the First Time; Close Encounters: Knowing the Savior; Enjoying God Forever; God’s Plan for our Good. He has also traveled extensively throughout Israel and Jordan and has co-led a half-dozen tours, in Israel, Jordan, Egypt, Turkey, and Greece.

Paul and his wife, Carreen are the parents of four children: Lucian, Taleigh, Lindsay, and Miriam, and grandparents of seven.

Following retirement, and a long-awaited trip to Africa, the Smiths will return to Seattle, where Paul plans to continue his writing and looks forward to spending more time with his family and grandchildren.

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!

West Seattle Amateur Radio Club Field Day @ South Seattle College
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

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

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.”

Greenstage presents ‘Pericles’ @ High Point Commons Park

Free outdoor Shakespeare from Greenstage!

Pericles
Directed by Ken Holmes

Saturday, Jul 9 @ 7:00 pm
at High Point Commons*

Pericles is a risk-taker. He realizes that whatever answer he gives to a riddle will get him killed. So begins an epic journey of ambitious risks, great rewards, and big falls for the Prince of Tyre. Pericles marries, has a daughter, and is separated from both along the way; shipwrecks always seem to happen at the darndest times. All three of them lead strange, marvelous lives and travel convoluted pathways to the end, when they’re miraculously reunited.

*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.

Community focus group: Crime and police issues @ SPD SW Precinct
Jul 11 @ 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):
