Vashon’s late push tops Titans

Colombo, a 2000 graduate of Dogtown’s St. James the Greater Catholic School, served for the sixth time as emcee of the 11th Annual Church Decades of Dreams dinner auction in the parish gym. Added to the normal banter of the event was the revelation that Archbishop Robert Carlson had accepted a recommendation that the...
