Lake Stevens Journal September 21, 2011 Page 7 Lake Stevens resident releases EP, runs recording studio JOURNAL STAFF Joachim Nordensson is only twenty years old but that hasn’t stopped him from releasing an EP and running a re- cording studio. Nordensson is a crossover guitar artist and balladeer with a style that fits in with the likes of John Mayer. His eclectic music meshes upbeat and mellow rock with a serving of jazzy folk. Since childhood Nordensson has stud- ied the guitar and was taught Chet Atkins' picking style by his father, Bengt, a musi— cian who toured Sweden and Norway a generation ago. Nordensson’s grandfather was awell- known Swedish banjo player, and his great grandfather was a respected violin composer in Sweden. Together the family represents over a century of contemporary music. Nordensson has been writing and per- forming music in the Pacific Northwest for the past three years. He got his start as a performer by play— ing guitar with friends gathered around bonfires. This led to further requests to play, and soon he was on his way as a performer. When he’s not writing or per- forming his own music, Nordensson is busy recording the music of others at his respected Nordensson Recording Studios ' GETYQUR FILL‘OF'; VIKING FOOTBALL STATS.

Community comes together for roundabout artWOrk JOURNAL STAFF ‘ Although the Lundeen and Vernon roundabout has been operational for about a year the project had not been completed until recently. The large center island was intentionally left unfinished while the Lake Stevens Art Commission worked on a recommended art piece that represented our Lake Stevens area. After many months of work, they pre- sented to the City Council a piece that reflects the two bald eagles that have nested near this site. The eagles have been referred to as George and Martha and have been observed frequently flying over the roundabout. The Art Commission put in many hours at the site to determine the best place- ment of the sculpture wanting to make sure that it would provide people travel- ing by with a great view from all angles. The City then constructed the founda- tion, installed the Eagles and filled the area with earth. The landscape was then completed with help of volunteer and former Mayor Diana Hale. Hale put in many hours preparing the design, research- ing plants, purchasing materials, and directing the installation of all the landscaping work. She was given a small budget and was able to work with the site to capture a unique feeling of a natural setting that greatly enhanced the sculpture’s present. When the landscape work was in the early stages local resident Kara Vietti offered a large log from her win yard’s landscaping that She thought would be a nice addition to the site. Local developer and landowner Tim Kaintz also donated the large boulders helping to complete the landscape project. The City has re— ceived numerous positive comments on the artwork and landscaping One question that comes up is that the artwork blocks the view across the roundabout but this was actually done by design as it helps with the operation of the roundabout. ' Because of the size and speed of this roundabout it is only necessary to have a clear line of sight to traffic entering to the left for a driver to safely enter the roundabout. “This is a great addition to the City, cre- ating a landmark for the community” said Mayor Vern Little. “The City greatly ap- preciates the volunteer commitment and would like to thank Diana Hale for the many hours donated for the design and implementation of the landscaping. A special thank you also goes to Ms. Vietti and Mr. Kaintz for their contribu- tions to this project. And, thank you to the Art Commission for the selection of the Eagle artwor ." LAKE.
