August 11, 2016 www.edmondsbeacon.com Edmonds Beacon - 3 CITYBRIEFS E- W teacher OK after head-on collision An Edmonds-Woodway High School teacher is back home after being involved in a head-on collision in BotheU. The crash on SR 524, other- wise known as Filbert Road, occurred Friday morning, Aug. 5, between Ninth Avenue SE and and Royal Anne Road. Brienne Townsend, 33, who teachers marine science, was taken to Evergreen Hospital. The other driver, a 77-year-old woman, was taken to Harbor- view Medical Center. "This was my morning," Townsend posted on Facebook, which included a picture of the two mangled cars. "So incredibly grateful to be just a bit battered and bruised Even more grateful that the kids were not with me and that the other driver is okay too." Townsend has been a teacher at Edmonds-Woodway since June 2005. She graduated from Stanwood High School and the University of Washington.

Owners Mark and Linda Horn say they expect to close at the end of the month. CITY BRIEFS Snohomish artist Michael Eggers' temporary art instal- lation, "Salmon Run," can now be viewed at Dayton Street and Second Avenue South as part of Edmonds Arts Commis- sion's "On the Fence" program. The installation is a reminder of the salmon spawning runs through local rivers "Salmon are a part of our Northwest identity," Eggers said. "It is our responsibility to sustain their habitat for the future." The art features salmon silhouettes cut out of plywood and painted in sparkle spray paint to reflect sunlight. The silhouettes are arranged in a repeated infinity symbol pat- tern symbolizing the endless pursuit of environmental stewardship. Eggers is a self-taught photographer, sculptor and painter. He said his preference is for the abstract because of the way abstraction is left open to interpretation by the viewer. His work has been shown at the Schack Art Center, Shoreline Arts Festival, Saa- ski Gallery in Snohomish and artEAST Art Center in Is- saquah. Three fence sites are avail- able for art installations as part of "On the Fence": the one at Dayton and Second, one on Sixth Avenue North and one just east of 700 Main Street at the Frances Anderson Center playfield. Artists are encour- aged to apply. Information is available at www.edmondsartscommis- sion.org or by calling 425-771- 0228. For more information on Michael Eggers, go to:www. arteggers.com.

Photo courtesy of Edmonds Arts Commission "A Tired Pup Is A Good Pup" Four years ago, we adopted a lab who came with some aggression issues. After he got into it at the dog park a couple of times and when it was apparent that simple walks in the neighborhood were going to be snapping, growling, barking fiascos, I called Whole Pup. Through their patient work with Emmitt at dog daycare, he came out of his fear and into a cool dude. The staff helped us during dog classes, to learn to stop the reactions. They knew it would take time, repetition for our pup to come around. Most important, we know how to help our dog get through the lapses and come out the other side with a wag and a smile. Thanks to our friends at Whole Pup, we have a happy pup and we are well trained owners! ~FIND us ON FA~EBOOK.~ Emmitt The Whole Canine Education & Care Center DAYCARE BOARDING TRAINING GROOMING STAFFED 24/7 SALES@THEWHOLEPUP.COM One- p shopping urhea .
