“Boys, don’t bowl on the green. The green is for the king, the king is for the queen ”

This evening as we approach the bowling green, three peregrine falcons stop their dance on the putting green like surface and eye us suspiciously before flying to the top rail of the enclosure’s cyclone fence. They join a fourth falcon in the green cover of a large, leafy tree, and we unlock the gate to Spokane’s only remaining lawn bowling green.

It has been a sweaty afternoon; the temperature still hangs in the high 90s. We have learned to anticipate the calm coolness offered by the reclusive grassy rectangle tucked into this tree shaded section behind Mission Park’s Witter Aquatic Center. Railroad tracks border on the west side, and the Spokane River angles on the east.

In 10 minutes, tonight’s bowlers will drive down the path leading from the west end of the swimming pool’s parking lot, uncurl from their air conditioned cars, and approach the clubhouse to gather their equipment. The night’s conversation will include asking Julenne about her family reunion, guessing from Rich Gaffey’s stride how many soccer games he refereed today, and gauging how Candee Compogno’s orthopedic recovery is proceeding.

We unlock the door to the century old Italian Renaissance bathhouse and descend into the Spokane Lawn Bowling Association’s clubhouse. This wall is filled with photos of SLBA’s presidents since the club’s 1976 founding (the atmosphere belies the club’s mere 38 years), though I recall a photo on the back wall includes nine men in bowler hats and white shirts on Manito Park’s former bowling green, dated 1913. There are several old trophies won at tournaments in Canadian bowling strongholds like Vernon, Kelowna and Penticton.

Along the lower counters are piles of mini booklets, one with the typeset green title “The ‘HOW’ of Lawn Bowling and Terms Thereof.” Eleven small pages end with the reminder that “all bowlers are to shake hands with each member of the opposing team. Winners should always be gracious to the losers and the losers should be sports and just as gracious to the winners.”

During our three years of seasonal evening bowling here, my husband and I have found the competition instructive, friendly and encouraging, with each bowler intent on his own best shots. The club is open to anyone in Spokane. Members manage “our green and clubhouse” personally: Two members alternate mowing duties before our twice a week bowling days (spending our modest dues on gas and blade sharpening), ensuring a well striped green for the evening’s match. Rich Gaffey, a local teacher and soccer referee who has been a member for more than 20 years, dedicates his nightly Centennial Trail bike ride to clicking on the sprinklers.

Back inside, we move to the cubbyholes and each gather our box of four bowls for the evening’s game. My husband chooses the midsize black bowls adorned on either side with Scottish thistles, an historical bow to the game’s regal roots. I “borrow” Loretta’s bowls, identified with family crests on either side. Many cubbies contain dusty bowl cases, untouched in our three years of association with the club, and a few even hold shoes and straw hats awaiting their owners.

When Sam pops into the clubhouse, we move toward the green where we choose a “rink” or lane that runs the 120 regulation feet to the other end. Steve’s team wins the roll, so he uses an underhand toss of the small white jack ball toward the opposite end. All bowlers in our rink now know their target. The game commences with alternating bowlers using this same underhanded release, trying to place their lop sided, softball size bowls closest to the jack while avoiding (or blasting) the other resting bowls. Sam is especially smooth in his genuflecting delivery, and is able to finesse his one side less rounded (biased) bowl around two others protecting the jack ball, smacking the jack 3 feet deeper in the rink. All the earlier near bowls are now obsolete. The “end” finishes with a “3” chalked on the pocked scoreboard for Sam’s team, and his opponents hoping for more luck during the ensuing 13 ends.

Right around the time we are bowling from the seventh end, on schedule, the BNSF Railway engine chugs along the green side tracks. The engineer, needing to blow the horn as he approaches the nearby Mission Avenue railroad crossing in front of Avista’s headquarters, checks to see if any of us is in a mid bowl stance. Only after the bowl is released, the engineer toots his horn, and we turn to meet his wave. I breathe in deeply and appreciate my fortune what a relaxing way to pass two hours outdoors on a perfect summer’s eve.

Candee likes that the game is “something we can play together as a couple,” with a woman equally capable of having a perfect night. Rich offers one word: “Relaxing.”

Fourteen ends take almost two hours tonight; the scoreboard shows Steve’s (and Sam’s) team: 16, Tim’s team 12. We shake hands all around.

Each of us gathers a piece of equipment and our bowls, stopping to swipe a cookie from Julenne’s generous plate, and in five minutes the green is darkened, the goodbyes are quieting, and the sprinklers are whispering. Likely the falcons are breathing a sigh of relief.

polo shoes Local moms embrace free clothing exchange

company polos Local moms embrace free clothing exchange

They did it without exchanging a single dollar.

“I love the idea of trading clothes straight across,” said one of those moms, Samantha Gee, as she rummaged through a table of kids’ clothing. “It just makes raising kids a whole lot cheaper.”

A dozen or so toddlers and young children ran between tables of clothes and played on plastic playground equipment that lined the wall at the First Presbyterian Church’s indoor playground on Saturday afternoon as their moms dug through the merchandise: clothing for men, women and children of all ages and sizes.

Gee and her friend, Jamie McKinley, each have three children, ages 1, 3 and 6. They’re used to trading kids’ clothing amongst each other and hunting for good deals on used clothes.

That same mentality among a circle of moms is how the clothing swap began in the spring of 2012. Rachel Stalter and Kim Knudsen organized a group of friends to bring their unwanted clothing, household and baby items to exchange with each other as an alternative baby shower for their friend, Chrissy Dashiell, who was pregnant with her second child.

It was such a hit that Dashiell organized a larger scale swap last fall. She and friends have been perfecting the event, holding the third one this spring and the fourth one on Saturday.

This time, organizers asked people to bring only clothes no toys and added menswear to the table. They worked to spread the word to expecting mothers since last spring they were left with a mountain of baby clothes.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if we get more around 100 this time,” she said.

Many mothers who participated Saturday were repeats from the spring clothing swap. In fact, some of the clothes they dropped off on Saturday were ones they picked up six months before.

“They grow out of them so fast, especially newborns,

” said Anna Dammshauser, whose 7 week old son, Milan, rested on her stomach in a baby sling. “Last time, I got stuff that still had the price tag on them.”

This time, she dropped off three bags of clothes, some of which Milan was born too big to wear.

At the end of the event, leftover clothing was headed to local charities Vina Moses, Community Outreach, The Arc Thrift Store, the Relief Nursery at Old Mill Center Relief, June’s Kids Kloset and Heartland Humane Society Thrift Shop.

Dashiell hopes that the family clothing swap will inspire people like she was inspired at her baby shower last year.

“Instead of new things for a new mom, there are so many used things that are just as good,” she said. “It’s not that people have to come to this clothing swap. I want people to think, ‘Oh, I can start my own swap.’ I want people to think more in that mindset, to save money and help each other out.”

LIMA After spending the last eight years in Columbus, Lima native Kortnee Williamson has returned to open up a new children clothing store in her hometown.

Lucky Lamb, which opened June 30 at 2720 Elida Road, specializes in apparel and accessories for newborns to 12 year olds. Williamson, a 26 year old who is taking a break from college, described her store as a high end boutique without the boutique prices.

She plans to take a year off in order to get her new business off the ground, but will return to CSCC to finish her bachelor degree. When she moves back to Columbus, she will entrust the business to family members.

Williamson is the business sole employee, though she said her mother, Diana Ross, is her biggest supporter and investor. A successful business owner herself, Ross owns Kleen Sweep, a cleaning service in Lima. Seeing the success of her mother and grandfather, who is also a business owner, motivated Williamson to open her own store.

Next week is Dance Like the Stars, which benefits Boys Girls Clubs of North Mississippi. Grist, George Stone, Ashley Buse, Anne Haire and Peggi Phillips from Tupelo; Matt Koon of New Albany; Laquita Wilkerson of Ripley and Ruby Lee Lancaster of Houston.

Whereas most of the students at the Dance Studio are just learning how to dance, the stars are learning a routine and those are two very different things.

With students, we start off with basic dances in a very systematic approach to learning, Wilson said. With stars, they dont need to learn how to do the rumba, but how to do a rumba routine. Well sit down with each contestant and get ideas of their styles and song choices, that way we get a variety of different dances. We spend the first couple of weeks moving in that style.

This years Dance Like the Stars will feature the celebrities dancing in styles like cha cha, salsa, samba and foxtrot.

Members of the Boys Girls Clubs also dance at the event, so the instructors teach them their moves, too.

All of this work is done on top of the instructors regular duties: Embler is called the studios jack of all trades. He does everything from repairs to party planning. Wilson is also the studio manager who returns phone calls and emails.

They each train, choreograph numbers and prepare lessons for their students in addition to teaching.

For Dance Like the Stars, Wilson also picks out and orders costumes, shoes and other accessories the stars may need.

The celebrities dancing at this years show arent known for their dancing skills, but Wilson said she often sees a lot of talent in those who think they have two left feet.

custom polo boots Lo clothing sale for QEH starts Wednesday

Jeff Rogers, far left, and his wife Krista Montgomery, far right, from Cape Traverse are thankful to staff of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. They also commend the work of the Wo He Lo Club and invite Islanders to support its upcoming spring clothing sale at the QEH, beginning on Wednesday. Looking on are their children, baby Olivia, on dad’s knee, sister Hailey, brother Tyler and baby Hannah, on mom’s knee, who spent most of her first year in the QEH Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

The annual sale is put on by the long time service Wo He Lo Club that aims to raise money to purchase much needed medical equipment to care for infants at the hospital.

The sale will feature a selection of gently used, reasonably priced, quality clothing and accessories for men, women and children.

Club vice president Judi O’Hanley says this sale will feature a wide array of spring and summer fashions, including dresses, business and casual clothes and a wide selection of summer shoes and sandals along with stylish purses, belts and jewelry.

As for hospital equipment, Kathy Larter, nurse manager of the QEH nursery and the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), says its top priorities this year are to purchase a portable cardio respiratory monitor at $10,000 and a new fetal heart monitor at $25,000.

“The neonatal resuscitation program has new requirements for 2017 and that is to have cardio respiratory monitoring available during the resuscitation of a newborn, so we need to purchase a portable monitor right away,” says Larter.

“Another new guideline is for fetal health surveillance, and it recommends we purchase a new fetal heart monitor that can compare a mother’s heart rate on the same screen as the fetal heart rate. The QEH monitors can only check the baby’s heart.”

The Rogers family from Cape Traverse is thankful for the care provided at the (NICU) and thankful for all that the Wo He Lo Club has done to help.

“Our baby, Hannah, and her twin, Olivia, were born at 31 weeks at the IWK. Hannah weighed only about one pound at birth and spent almost her first year of her life between the IWK and QEH’s NICU,” says mom Krista Montgomery.

“The care by the QEH pediatricians and neonatal nurses was exceptional. We are so fortunate the QEH is here, that they stepped up and were able to give Hannah care that we could not in her early days along with the follow up she continues to receive. Because of wonderful fundraisers, such as this one, our family was able to be together in our most difficult days, and we are ever so grateful.”

polo shirts men Let's Talk Science Outreach
! My flight is leaving today from Timmins. Unfortunately one of my bags could not be on the same flight as me so I scrambled to get glue and borax out of my pack just incase!

I definitely encourage those of you going to remote towns to pack at least one change of clothes and a Let’s Talk Science activity in your carry on!!

I finally arrived in Kash on the SMALLEST plane I have ever been on! A 9 passenger plane I could see everything the pilots were doing! I must admit I have never been that scared and intrigued at the same time!

Its lucky that I took out that glue and borax, 15 mins after I arrived I was set to go into classroom number 1! We made slime and the kids seemed super excited! So much so that they all drew me a pictures to take home!

I went to the one grocery store in town with another teacher after school closed and was followed by a group of kids that I just did slime with. One thing that I notice about doing outreach in rural communities is that the kids are a lot more intrigued with who you are. I have had so many youth come up to me and ask me questions about who I am, whats my name, whats my last name, do I have a family, etc.

It has been a long day but I am so excited to be here and meet everybody I am now known as the science lady!

Here are some fun facts that I found out about Kash and my first impressions of the community:

Kids don’t have allergies here! Nobody is allergic to peanuts.

People call “Kashechewan” Kash (thank goodness!).

Chief represent the community and kind of “runs the community.”

There are no number plates on the cars here!

“Shagging” means that kids grab onto a car bumper and because its so snowy and icey get pulled along!

Broomball is a sport played here. Its kind of like hockey but the players wear special rubber shoes and their stick kind of like the handle of a spade. There is a ball instead of a puck and the net is slightly bigger!

I am definitely still in Canada as hockey is HUGE in this community! I got the chance to watch the local men play a game in their arena.

In the winter, the local river freezes and you can actually drive on it to the next community (about three hours).

A good time to come here is during fall. The locals will head into the woods, hunt and pluck ducks or geese and cook them on fires. In fact, two times a year (around October, and spring), the locals head for a week to camp and hunt,
polo shirts men Let's Talk Science Outreach
moose, geese and ducks. They will actually carry a moose in their boats!!

Here are some facts about the elementary school:

Teachers give a lot to the kids here. They buy most things for their classroom even pens pencils, food etc.

The school is made up of mobile classrooms.

The school provides a morning breakfast program.

I found that attendance is very good here. However the teachers did tell me interesting excuses from kids as to why they didn’t come to school!

At 1:30 this morning, Berkeley’s City Council decided unanimously to delay hearing and consideration of four proposed new anti homeless laws until after the Summer recess. that neither the broader public nor City Councilmembers had had the opportunity to review. Councilmember Kriss Worthington objected that the introduction of such dramatic changes after midnight was deeply undemocratic. Councilmembers Max Anderson and Jesse Arregun announced that they would not participate in such a process. Members of the public voiced support. In response, the Mayor suggested that the matter should be held over, and referred to the Agenda Committee. foreign policy.

Despite glimmers of hope a tentative nuclear agreement with Iran, for one, and a long overdue thaw with Cuba we’re locked into seemingly irresolvable conflicts in most regions of the world. They range from tensions with nuclear armed powers like Russia and China to actual combat operations in the Middle East, South Asia, and Africa. foreign policy. We still act as if our enormous military power, imperial alliances, and self perceived moral superiority empower us to set the terms of “world order.”I am writing to tell you of my strenuous objection to the scheduling of a Council meeting on June 25 to consider significant community benefits that will be required of Downtown building projects over 75 feet. One of those buildings, 2211 Harold Way is not only the largest single building proposed to be constructed in Berkeley, it would be the tallest building (194 feet) in our Downtown, and, as such, has generated considerable interest, to say the least. Our City must immediately address the problems that have been revealed regarding the safety of balconies, even in fairly recently constructed buildings, whether rental or for sale. Prevention of the re occurrence of such problems must become a priority for Berkeley. Tom Lochner of the Contra Costa Times has found a video in which Berkeley Mayor Tom Bates tells his landlord buddies in the Berkeley Property Owners Association that he’s on their side all the way. And so, he says, is Laurie Capitelli. He says he started out as a developer himself, as did Capitelli.

Closing out their 3 week Beethoven festival, San Francisco Symphony gave the first of three concert performances of Beethoven’s only opera, Fidelio,
marco polo song Local News and Opinion from The Berkeley Daily Planet
on Thursday evening, June 25, at Davies Hall. With Music Director Michael Tilson Thomas leading the orchestra, this Fidelio featured Swedish soprano Nina Stemme as Leonore, the wife who, disguised as a young man (named Fidelio) saves the life of her unjustly imprisoned husband, Florestan. This opera caused Beethoven much labor. In this Akademie, or public as opposed to courtly concert, which lasted well over four hours, Beethoven presented the first performances of his 5th and 6th Symphonies, his 4th Piano Concerto, his Fantasy for Piano (Opus 77), and his Choral Fantasy (Opus 80), as well as his previously performed concert aria “Ah! perfido,” plus three movements from his already ill received C major Mass. As Jacob Reichardt wrote in a letter, “There we sat from 6:30 till 10:30 in the most bitter cold, and found by experience that one might have too much of a good thing.”On Saturday evening June 13, San Francisco Opera presented the World Premire of a new opera commissioned by General Director David Gockley Italian composer Marco Tutino’s La Ciociara (Two Women). Based on the 1958 novel of the same title by Alberto Moravia, this opera, with a libretto by Luca Rossi, Marco Tutino, and Fabio Ceresa, recounts the trials and tribulations of a widowed World War II mother and her teenage daughter who flee Rome because of allied bom bardments but find no haven from the war in the mountain villages of the region known as La Ciociara. From this same novel a 1960 film starring Sophia Loren was directed by Vittorio De Sica with a screenplay by Cesare Zavattini.
