Another program Baysinger is hoping to run is an automotive painting program that will teach a variety of skills to young adults. The tutoring program will also continue at the community center. Baysinger praised teacher Robin Barcenas, who has put a lot of effort into educating Sunnyside's youth with both the tutoring program and the American Academy, which offers on-line courses for nontraditional high school students. "We've been blessed as a community to have some of these people work with our kids," said Baysinger. Also, the soccer fields near the law and justice center prepared last year are nearly ready for games. "We're still looking for a lawnmower," said Baysinger. But he had some promising news about the fields, as well. Sunnyside's Promise Daily Sun News file photo has garnered some attention outside the valley for its efforts, and one person who heard about the group is Richard Tait, inventor of the game Cranium. Tait, who is now marketing an energy drink called Golazo, visited Sunnyside with the thought that he might be able to help out the community. "He may bring out Santa Maria Rivera, a Seattle Sounders player, to see our soccer field," said Baysinger. He expressed hope that Tait might help out with youth soccer in Sunnyside. Baysinger also reported that Allied Arts is working on trying to repeat last year's program that helped turn graffiti into murals around town. Sunnyside's Promise has also partnered with the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and the local hospital to provide health education and screenings and nutrition advice. A partnership with Worksource provides skill building, including resume writing and interviewing skills. Sunnyside's Promise has worked in the past to help keep children busy and away from dangerous activities, and has promised to continue to do so this year. - Laura Gjovaag can be contacted at 509-837-4500, or email LGjovaag@DailySunNews.com JANUARY 19, 2012 "JUST SAY NO" COLORING BOOK DAILY SUN NEWS 3 Real friends never ask you to take anything that will hurt you!
