Bedlam breaks out at council meeting by Laura Gjovaag

Standing up toward the end of last night’s meeting, Pete Sartin told the Sunnyside City Council that the city had become a laughing-stock due to the council’s actions. “If I could hook on to my trucking company’s buildings and take the land with me, our cold storages and take the land with me, I would move them out into the county,” said Sartin. “My house would go with them.” The comments came at the end of a raucous meeting that started with hope and promise and ended with accusations, shouting and council member Nick Paulakis tendering his resignation from the council. Early in the meeting, students from the Sunnyside High School leadership program gave a presentation on the efforts of the students to foster strong character in local youth, and how they wanted to expand the program into the community. At the end of their program, the students presented every member of the council with “Respect” bracelets, the reward given for demonstrating respect in action. The good will lasted through most of the regular agenda, until nearly the end of the meeting when council

Talk of school uniforms at Grandview Middle School by Amber Schlenker

GRANDVIEW – By this fall, Grandview Middle School students could have a dress code policy in place that requires students to wear school uniforms. Beginning this past November, Grandview Middle School Principal Paul Voorhees began a discussion with parents about the possibility of school uniforms. The initial reaction was a positive one, according to Voorhees. “We feel it’s important to improve our school’s culture so (students) can focus

on achieving at their highest level,” he said. He says school administrators are looking at starting the policy at the beginning of the next school year, 2012-13. After the initial discussion, Voorhees took the conversation to middle school teachers. He says most were in favor, but all are willing to enforce it. The policy made it a step further with a parent meeting held last Thursday at Grandview Middle School. Voorhees says there were nearly 120 in attendance. He says that of those in atten-

dance around 10 people were opposed to the idea of enforcing school uniforms at the school. Last night (Monday), Voorhees presented a preliminary draft of the uniform policy to the school board. He said, “based on the fact that we have been designated as a persistently low achieving school, the mandate from the state is to get our (test) scores up.” Grandview Middle School students deal with daily distractions, according to Voorhees, that revolve around clothing. “Our kids get bullied,” he said at Monday night’s meeting. “… and part of that starts with what they are wearing.” He says implementing a uniform policy will level the

playing field for students, create unity and a sense of equity at the school. As a previous administrator at a school district with a uniform policy in place, Voorhees says he could not tell the difference between students’ parents’ income levels. “It really did level the playing field, and students could focus on school,” he added. He says the idea is to balance the policy by giving students some choice in what they wear. According to the draft of the policy, students will be required to wear black pants, skirts, skorts or Capri pants. Students will be able to choose from white, gray or maroon polo shirts. Shoes, also, must exclude red or blue see “Uniforms” page 3

Intervention helping more Mabton seniors graduate by John Fannin

MABTON – Six months ago less than twothirds of Mabton High School seniors were on track to graduate this June. Today that number is nearly 80 percent thanks to a series of intervention steps. That’s according to a presentation last night, Monday, to the Mabton School Board. Dave Mendoza is a site advisor at Mabton High School for GEAR UP, a grant-funded program that helps students prepare for college. Mendoza and school counselor Lucia Tovar created opportunities for students to get back on track for graduation. Mendoza told the board last night that since the start of the 2011-12 school year programs

have been created such as an early morning Algebra II study class, the Viking Spot study time, as well as improved monitoring of students who have failed or are failing a class. At the same time, Mendoza noted the success of these programs ultimately depends on student effort and parental support. “Opportunities are still opportunities, but the students have to commit to the work,” he told the board. Mendoza noted that students taking advantage of the opportunities to get caught up are held accountable. “They need to correct the actions that are getting them behind,” he said. The effort is also having an impact on juniors, as to date 83 percent are on track to

Granger Historical Society unveils new Archives Room GRANGER – At March’s Granger Historical Society monthly meeting the group decided to open the Archives Room (located at the Granger public library) each Wednesday from 1 to 4 p.m. Anyone interested in the history of Granger is invited to visit the room and learn more about Granger from the beginning in the early 1900’s to present day. There are several pictorial displays as well as available are two books showcasing the

town. The first history book was published in 1975 by the Granger Library Club and a second was published by the Granger Historical Society in 2011. The books are also available for purchase. In addition, the society is inviting the public to share historical items and photos in the archives room, either as a loan or a donation. For further information, call Helen Dodd at 854-1131 or e-mail Elissa Simon at maesimon@msn.com.

Trevino crowned Mr. Grandview GRANDVIEW – Grandview’s Nate Trevino went away with the crown and Mr. Grandview title at this year’s Mr. Grandview pageant. Sawyer Schilperoort and Daniel Lara were the first and second runners up, respectively. Trevino was also voted best at the interview portion of the contest, Lara was voted best at the fitness and talent portion and Schilperoort was voted best at self expression during the competition. The contestants also chose Schilperoort as Mr. Congeniality.

graduate next year. But with all this success, Mendoza noted Mabton High School students are still lagging when it comes to college preparation. He provided the board with the most recent results from the ACT exam. They show only 13 percent of Mabton High School students will be prepared for a college-level English composition course, compared to a state average of 76 percent. In addition, the ACT scores from 2011 bear out that less than 5 percent of Mabton students are ready for college algebra, college social science and college biology. Statewide, the percentages of students ready for those same college courses are, respectively, 60, 64 and 40 percent.

Even so, Mendoza said Mabton students are getting into colleges and universities – 29 seniors in the class of 2012 have already been admitted – but some need to take remedial courses when they advance to the postsecondary level. “They need to learn the things good college students do to be successful,” he said. Moving forward, two ideas discussed last night involved monitoring D students as well as failing students and developing a budget to take Mabton students to visit college campuses to help them in their planning and preparation for life beyond high school. - John Fannin can be reached at 509-837-4500 or e-mail him at jfannin@dailysunnews.com

Yakima County implements changes after auditor’s finding by John Fannin

Warner said of combining both sets of information. “The challenge is to marry together the financial and client program needs.” Warner said the county thought it had a fix for the issue in 2010, but that system proved unworkable. It was that same year that the state audited the probation department and, in the report issued last month, found the department “…does not have adequate internal controls over cash-receipting and accounts receivables, increasing the risk that undetected errors or losses could occur.” Specifically, the auditor’s office noted the probation department’s accounts receivable system could not generate a report showing

Colleges waiting on word from Olympia by Laura Gjovaag

The current status of colleges and universities around the state is one of fiscal uncertainty, according to YVCC Grandview Campus Dean Bryce Humphreys. “The legislature hasn’t settled the state budget yet,” said Humphreys. “So we don’t have knowledge of what will happen.” Humphreys was speaking to the Sunnyside Noon Rotary Club this past Monday about the difficulties incoming students are facing this year at YVCC and other colleges and universities around the state. Laura Gjovaag/Daily Sun News Community colleges are funded by state allocation and Bryce Humphries speaks student tuition, according to Humphreys, and the state porto the Sunnyside Noon tion has declined by 34 percent. The difference must be Rotary Club on Monday afmade up either by raising tuition or cutting programs, and ternoon about the financial problems facing colleges the colleges cannot raise tuition. “The state board controls tuition costs,” said Humphreys. and universities. “That leaves us with fewer options.” He noted that this year’s budget battle has been different than in previous years. “In the past, the governor comes out with a budget, the House comes out with a budget and the Senate comes out with a budget and we know we’ll end up with something in the middle of all three,” said Humphreys. “This year we’ve seen multiple budgets and they are very far apart.” As a result, Humphreys had some advice for all potential students. “Have a back-up plan in case you can’t get into the school or even the class you want,” he said. “We’ve had to cut programs, so be ready to find a different path.” He explained that, due to cuts in the budget, YVCC is offering fewer classes than just four or five years ago. In addition, with the economy in bad shape, many people are returning to school to gain new skills. “What we have is fewer courses offered and more students trying to get into them,” Humphreys said. “Plan for your college career to last longer than you expect and be Match 4: 4, 12, 21, 22 ready to try something else if your first choice doesn’t work Latest Results out.” He also advised students to analyze the cost versus the Daily Game: 9, 2, 0 benefits of going to school.

colors. Some parents attending last night’s school board meeting were concerned with costs associated with uniforms, and others say the policy is addressing the wrong issue. A parent added that involving parents of fifth grade students would be helpful, since those students will be required to follow the policy beginning the following school year. During school conferences Voorhees says he plans to have surveys distributed for parents and students to hear additional feedback about the policy. In addition,

Superintendent Kevin Chase suggested getting a survey to elementary school parents as well. Voorhees says, also, if students are dressing like professionals or much like they would when going to a job interview, they are more likely to care about success in the classroom at a deeper level. An additional meeting is scheduled for parents on Thursday, April 19, at 6:30 p.m. at the middle school. - Amber Schlenker can be contacted at 509-837-4500, or email ASchlenker@DailySunNews.com

Are you prepared for long-term care costs? Like everyone else, you hope to remain physically and financially independent your entire life. And you may well achieve this goal. Nonetheless, the future is not ours to see, so you’ll want to prepare yourself for as many contingencies as possible — one of which is the high cost of long-term care. As you may know, long-term care primarily refers to nursing home expenses, but it also includes services provided in your own home. In either case,

though, it could be expensive. The national average rate for a private room in a nursing home was more than $87,000 per year in 2011, according to the 2011 MetLife Market Survey of Long-Term Care Costs. The same survey found that the average private-pay hourly rates for home health aides and homemaker companion services were $21 and $19, respectively. With luck, of course, you won’t need to worry about these

types of expenses. But consider this: People who reach age 65 have a 40% chance of entering a nursing home, according to a study by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. And about 10% of those who enter a nursing home will stay there five or more years. Clearly, if you take no steps to prepare yourself for the potentially devastating costs of an extended nursing home stay, you could be jeopardizing the assets you’ve worked so hard

to accumulate. Even worse, if you run through your money, you might end up creating a financial and emotional burden for your grown children. Unfortunately, many people assume that a federal or state government program will help them pay for their longterm care expenses. However, Medicare pays only a small portion of nursing home costs, and to be eligible for Medicaid, you would likely have to divest yourself of most of your

financial assets. Consequently, you’ll probably need to find another way to pay for longterm care. Fortunately, there are investment or protection vehicles designed specifically to help you meet long-term care expenses. Your financial advisor can help you pick the option that’s most appropriate for your individual situation. Having the ability to pay for long-term care is obviously important. But other issues

FINANCIAL FOCUS may also enter the picture. For example, if you need to enter a nursing home, you may be suffering from a physical or mental disability that might prevent you from handling your own affairs. This impairment could prove disastrous to your finances — which is why you can’t afford to take see “Long-term” next page

Sunnyside police Darigold animal survey earns McKudos to start business watch program In cooperation with the Sunnyside Chamber of Commerce, the Sunnyside Police Department is working to put together a business watch program to help local businesses with their safety and crime issues. According to a press release issued by the police department, the concept of a business watch is much like a neighborhood watch in the neighbors looking out for neighbors concept, but on a commercial level. Business watches seek to reduce and prevent crime through education and cooperation, as well as promote communication between law enforcement and business.

Mount Baker tops 22-school field at Grandview invite

Only a sophomore, Sunnyside’s James Voorhies broke the 90-mark for the first time this season with front and back nine scores of 43-46. Here, he reacts to his long par putt just coming up short of the cup on No. 17.

An even-par 72 by Jon Schemstad and a 77 from teammate Addison King propelled the Mount Baker Mountaineers to a first-place finish at yesterday’s 22-school Grandview Golf Invitational, staged at Black Rock Creek Golf Course. The Mountaineers, who also got rounds of 81 and 83 from Kristjan Toivola and Shane Harkness, respectively, clipped the second-place finishing Ephrata Tigers by eight strokes for top honors in the boys team scoring. Ephrata was powered to its second-place finish by the day’s medalist, Andrew Whalen. He toured the Sunnyside-area course on a bright and nearly windless Monday morning with a

Of the six Lower Yakima Valley schools competing yesterday, Sunnyside claimed the top finish. The Grizzlies, getting a fairly polished 8-over-par 80 from junior Chandler Luther, tallied the fifth lowest team score at 355. “Placing fifth from this large of a field is a pretty good finish for us,” said SHS Coach Gary Rohde.

Sunnyside’s Promise basketball program delayed until April 2 Because of the extremely large turnout of youngsters for the spring basketball program operated by Sunnyside’s Promise at the Sunnyside Community Center, the action on the court has been delayed a week. The first team practices of the season were to have got underway yesterday (Monday). Instead, practice sessions will begin next Monday, April 2. That, in turn, will push back the first games of the spring season to Saturday, April 14. Sunnyside’s Promise spokesman Lisa Fairbairn said more than 400 youngsters, ages 5 to 12, signed up to participate in the spring hoop program, about 150 more youths than participated in the last basketball program conducted at the community center. Fairbairn said organizers need an additional week of preparation time to accommodate the large spring turnout. She also noted that additional coaches are needed. Those who would like to volunteer their time as team coaches, or need additional information about the local program, can contact Edgar Mendez (509-643-4262).

included 13th-place finishing Prosser, which received a pair of team-low 93’s from Macauley Homan and Riley Hogue; the 15th-place finishing Zillah Leopards, whose low scorer with a 101 was Brady Widner; 16th-place finishing Toppenish, which got a squad-best 101 from Adrian Pacheco; the 18th-place finishing Wapato Wolves, whose low round of 95 came from Garrett Jacob; and the 21st-place finish from the host Grandview Greyhounds, who could only muster up a 119 from their best golfer on the day, Matt Dailey. A total of three linksters shot even-par 72 or better. Ephrata’s Whalen bested the field of more than 90 golfers with his 2-under-par 70. Also under par was East Valley’s Andrew Raab. The Red Devil finished at 71 with front and back side scores of 34-37. Mount Baker’s Schemstad rounded out the trio with his even-par 72. One stroke back of joining the select group was Cle Elum’s Rylee Iacolucci. He went 37-36 for a 1-over-par 73. Also carding sub-80 rounds were Mount Baker’s King and Ephrata’s Heer with identical 77’s, and Beau Wangler of LaSalle and Keegan Crafton of Hermiston with a pair of 78’s. In winning medalist hon-

ors Monday, Whalen snared three birdies while only giving back a single shot, that via a bogey on the 210-yard, par-3 second hole. His tweeters came on the short, par-5 third hole, the dogleg right, par-4 seventh and on No. 14, a 500-yard plus, dogleg left, par-5 hole with a pond that fronts the left side of the fairway. The other 14 holes, Whalen got down in par. In leading Sunnyside to its fifth-place finish, the junior Luther posted a solid 5-over 41 on the front nine.

He parred five of the nine holes, absorbing bogeys three times. Luther’s one blow-up before the turn came on the par-5 sixth, the toughest rated hole at Black Rock Creek. He, along with all three of his teammates, settled for double-bogeys there. Luther got into an even cleaner rhythm on the back side, cruising down the stretch with a 3-over-par 39. His one and only birdie of the day came on the par-3, 17th. He closed out the back side stretch with a par on No. 18,

one of five he recorded after the clubhouse turn. His back nine hiccups were a doublebogey on No. 10, and bogeys on 11 and 16, both par-4 affairs. Rohde credits Luther’s flat stick for his solid play yesterday. “(Chandler) is putting much better right now,” Rohde said. Second in for the Grizzlies yesterday was junior Nathan Meyer.

Local grapplers tearing up the mats WAITSBURG – Two local wrestling teams, Sunnyside’s Little Grapplers and Grandview’s Team Outlaw, on Saturday, March 21, competed in the Waitsburg Tournament. The teams both fared well at the tourney. Grandview had 22 wrestlers earning honors and Sunnyside had 10 wrestlers with top-three finishes. Champions for Sunnyside included Riley Guerrero in the 7-8 year old division; Abraham Arreola and Alan Ochoa in the 9-10 year olds; and Daniel Cardenas (11-12). Top honors for the Outlaws went to Adrian Benitez, Romeo Campuzano, Lucas Diener, Juan Fernandez, Miguel Flores Jr., Markos Mendoza, Damian Monreal, Idrian Monreal and Jesus Sanchez. Six Outlaws earned runnerup honors. They were Aulani Benitez, Shaun Diener,

Juanito Martinez, Viannei Perez, Nate Rodriguez and Julian Sanchez. For the Little Grapplers, runner-up honors were presented to Jesse Denson and Rey Palomarez in the 5-6 year olds; Marcos Velasquez of the 7-8 year old age division; Victor Ochoa (11-12) and Jeniya Guillen in the 1314 year old division. Sunnyside Coach Daniel Guillen said there were some team members bumped from the medal rounds by their own teammates. “I guess it’s kinda hard to avoid each other when they are the same age and almost identical weights,” he said. There were two Little Grapplers who earned third place honors, Joseph Paleyo (9-10) and Stephanie Blankenship. Outlaw Coach Juan Jaimez was also proud of his team’s efforts at Waitsburg.

“All their hard work is paying off, but there is always room for improvement,” he said. The Grandview team had four third place medalists in Waitsburg. They included Liberty Ashley, Jaden Lopez, Noe Medina and David Saunders. Earning fourth place honors for the Outlaws were Jordan Ashley, Amaya Benitez, Evan Benitez and Taylor Lakey. Grandview Coach Patrick Galvan said, “I am very

happy with the progress and success our kids are having in our program…I have the group with all the new kids and it’s a challenge, but they put their heart out there on the mat.” The two teams this past weekend competed in West Valley. Results are pending. This coming Saturday, March 31, Grandview will host a Little Guy Wrestling Tournament at Grandview High School. The action begins at 9 a.m.

Macedo, Cisneros spark Mabton to 1A league victory over Wahluke by Jennie McGhan

MABTON – The Mabton Vikings were victorious at home yesterday against the Wahluke Warriors, winning the league soccer match 3-0. It was Mabton’s fourth match in the last six days. The Vikes improved their league record to 4-1, 4-2 overall. Coach Junior Garcia said he was proud of the Mabton boys’ efforts

on the field Monday evening. “They really connected with one another,” he said, stating the team worked to communicate well. The match was scoreless at halftime, but Mabton returned to the field with visions of scoring. It was that focus that propelled the Vikings to force the ball toward the Warrior goal just three minutes into the closing half. Guillermo Macedo gained posses-

boys prep soccer sion and got through the Wahluke defense and connected with teammate Edgar Cisneros. Cisneros spotted an open shot at the crossbars and took advantage of the opportunity to score the first goal of the match. After nearly 20 minutes of bat-

tling back-and-forth with the Warriors, the duo connected again. Cisneros got the ball to Macedo at the 60-minute mark, and Macedo scored. The final goal was attributed to the pair’s teamwork again. Cisneros scored with eight minutes left in the match off an assist by Macedo. Both teams had nine opportunities apiece to score, but Garcia said the Viking defense was solid.

“My defense, as well as keeper Gerardo Barajas, did an outstanding job,” said Garcia. “The team played well,” he said. Garcia credited Wahluke for creating its own opportunities to score, stating, “They just couldn’t finish because my keeper was able to stop it.” This coming Thursday Mabton hosts 2A Grandview in a non-league contest.

Mabton blanks Naches varsity, loses to Toppenish JV squad by Jennie McGhan

The Toppenish JV soccer team defeated the Mabton Vikings varsity team 4-2 last Thursday during a non-league match-up. The Vikings turned the loss around and were victorious 9-0 against Naches this past Saturday. Saturday’s match was inspiring, according to Mabton Boys Soccer Coach Junior Garcia. He said, “The Vikings did a good job touching the ball.” Viking Edgar Cisneros was

the first to draw blood, scoring a goal in the sixth minute of opening action. He was assisted by Guillermo Macedo. The pair traded places when the next scoring opportunity presented itself. Cisneros gained possession of the ball at the 16-minute mark, kicked it to Macedo and Macedo got it past the crossbars. Teammate Damien Diaz earned the third goal for Mabton seven minutes later. Macedo shot the ball toward the goal, it was blocked by the keeper who didn’t maintain

possession and Diaz capitalized on an open opportunity. It was Macedo who scored the next pair of goals. He scored in the 31st and 40th minute of the match for a hat trick, but that wasn’t the last the Rangers would see of him. Both those goals were assisted by Cisneros. Mabton had a 5-0 lead at halftime, and continued to pressure the Naches defense in the closing half of the match. Gerardo Barajas of the Vikings gained possession on

the Naches end of the field in the 55th minute. He lobbed it to Cisneros for the goal. Macedo, after 13 minutes of battling on the field, was able to score his fourth goal of the match. Barajas provided the assist. Macedo at the 74-minute mark provided an assist on the next goal. He booted the ball to Carlos Cruz, who had moved up from JV. Cruz saw an open shot and kicked the ball past the Rangers’ keeper for his first varsity goal. Mabton quickly regained

possession and it took just five minutes before the Vikings scored the final goal of the match. It was Barajas who scored on an assist by teammate Mauricio Palominos. “It was a really outstanding performance by Guillermo and Edgar, hooking up with one another to take advantage of scoring opportunities,” said Garcia. Mabton had 11 shots on goal and Naches had seven scoring opportunities. Viking keeper Juan Macedo made the save on each of the

boys prep soccer Rangers’ scoring attempts. Garcia said Thursday’s match wasn’t as clean, but “…Toppenish is a really strong team and have always been solid.” The Vikings scored the first goal of the match in the eighth minute. Scoring the goal was Jose Andrade. Teammate Tony Espinoza gained possession of the ball at the 29-minute mark and moved it past the Wildcat defenders to score the second goal. Toppenish’s German Ledezma three minutes later battled past the Mabton defenders to get the ball past the crossbars. Mabton had a 2-1 lead at halftime. The Viking defense seemingly broke down in the second half, allowing Wildcat David Chavez the opportunity to tie the match 2-2 in the 50th minute. It took another nine minutes before Toppenish’s Jose Chavez scored. The final goal was scored at the 70-minute mark by Wildcat Servando Fuentes. Toppenish keepers Martin Perez and Leonardo Vazquez combined for seven saves. For Mabton, Gerardo Barajas had 10 saves. Garcia said he isn’t really certain if the Vikings broke down due to conditioning, but he realizes where the team can improve its efforts. “We will be working on our passing game and we need to finish on scoring chances to put the ball away as necessary,” said Garcia. ‑ Jennie McGhan can be contacted at 509-837-4500, or email JMcGhan@DailySunNews.com

front and back nine scores of 42-46. Meyer’s chief highlight from his 18-hole round was a birdie on the par-5 third hole. He ended up with pars on five holes and settled for bogey seven times. Meyer took double-bogeys on the five other holes. SHS sophomore James Voorhies turned in his best round of this young season, shooting an 89. Voorhies re-

mained consistent throughout yesterday, going 43-46 on the front and back. No birdies on his card, but Voorhies did par a third of the holes and picked up bogeys on nine others. His only real downfalls were a pair of double-bogeys and one triple, that coming on the par-5, 14th hole, where he absorbed an 8. Rounding out the Grizzlies’ team scorecard was fresh-

man Ian Heffron’s round of 98 (49-49). It’s the first time ever Heffron has been under 100 for 18 holes of play. The underclassman had a few stumbles along the way, but found some solace in that he led the Sunnyside contingent with two birdies on the day. The tweeters for Heffron came on No. 3 and No. 8, par-5 and par-4 holes, respectively.

The host Greyhounds, with a couple of varsity golfers missing yesterday and going with JV linksters in their stead, had rounds of 119 (5168) from Dailey, 122 (61-61) from Cameron Stinnett, 126 (60-66) from Sean Charvet and 133 (62-71) from Ty Adamson. For Adamson, yesterday was his first 18-hole round in a competitive setting. GHS

Caring for problem skin (Family Features) According to the National Institutes of Health, skin is the largest organ of your body. Skin can be a very delicate thing, and as the outermost layer, it needs to be cared for in order to look and feel its best. Unfortunately, for those who suffer from highly prevalent skin conditions, such as eczema, caring for and maintaining skin can be a daily challenge. What is eczema? Eczema is a chronic, in-

Controlling your weight may minimize cancer risk Controlling weight can help a person reduce the risk of cancer, says an oncologist from the NCI-designated Dan L. Duncan Cancer Center at Baylor College of Medicine. “There have been countless studies comparing cancer risk in obese and normal weight people,” said Dr. Kent Osborne, director of the Duncan Cancer Center and the Lester and Sue Smith Breast Center, both at Baylor College of Medicine.. “We do not know exactly how and why obesity affects cancer risk, but we know there is an increase, so it is important for everyone to control their weight to minimize this risk.” Research has linked obesity to a greater risk of developing esophageal, pancreatic, colorectal, breast, endometrial, kidney, thyroid and gallbladder cancer, Osborne said. In some cancers like breast cancer, there is also an increase in the risk of recurrence if a patient already has the cancer and is obese. Many other factors, such as genetics, may play a role in cancer development, but keeping a normal weight is one thing people can change and it may help, he said. Baylor College of Medicine researchers are actively engaged in studying the relationship between cancer and obesity. Dr. Sao Jiralerspong, assistant professor in the Smith Breast Center, is specifically looking at the effect on breast cancer. In December 2011, Jiralerspong presented new research that showed obesity may contribute to worse survival outcomes in early stage breast cancer patients. is now studying drugs like metformin that reduce the effects of obesity in the body to determine if it can reduce the risk of developing cancer. “This study is one of many important examples that provide more evidence that weight control is an important factor in the fight against cancer,” said Osborne.

Free birth classes offered at local hospital Sunnyside Community Hospital is now offering childbirth education classes to mothers-to-be. The class is held in two, two-hour evening classes each month. It is recommended that the mother and a coach take the class together at least two months before the child’s expected delivery date. The next series of classes is slated for Tuesday and Thursday, April 10 and 12, and again May 8 and 10. The classes are free of charge to mothers planning on delivering at the local hospital’s birthing center.

flammatory skin condition characterized by dry, itchy skin and visible skin rash. Over 35 million Americans, both children and adults, suffer from eczema. The prevalence of eczema has increased nearly 400 percent over the past 30 years and is projected to continue to increase due to environmental and other factors such as stress, according to the National Eczema Association. In a healthy state, the external layer of your skin acts as a protective barrier. For eczema sufferers, the skin has a deficiency in the external

layer that allows the moisture to escape and causes chronic dryness. When skin is dry and unprotected, irritants can reach the sensitive layers below and cause uncomfortable itch flare-ups. - Common triggers. There are a number of things that can trigger an eczema flareup, such as irritants like synthetic fibers, detergents, perfumes, rough or poor fitting clothing, dust or sand. Environmental factors such as hot or cold temperatures, humidity, or dry air. Emotional factors such as anxiety or stress. see “Skin” next page

There are ways to manage those pesky sinus symptoms Sinus infections can last up to two weeks and bring about pesky, uncomfortable symptoms – sore throat, sinus pressure, coughing, fever and drainage – but you can manage these until your body fights off the infection, says a physician assistant from Baylor College of Medicine. Sinus infections are an inflammation or swelling of the tissue lining the sinuses caused by blockage of bacteria, viruses and fungi. “Most of the time, sinus infections can be managed without antibiotics,” said Isabel Valdez, a physician assistant and instructor of family and community medicine at Baylor College of Medicine. Valdez offers tips to help make the duration of the infection more comfortable. Drainage “There are two options you can use to control the drainage – decongestants or expectorants,” said Valdez. “Decongestants dry up the mucus that collects in the back of the throat as a result of the infection. Expectorants melt the mucus.” Look for over-the-counter

decongestants that contain pseudoephedrine or phenylephrine, such as Sudafed. “I recommend taking this in the morning only. These can increase your heart rate and blood pressure and keep you up at night,” said Valdez. Mucinex or products with guaifenesen are great options for “mucus melters” because these loosen the thick mucus, she said. Sinus pressure The expectorants and decongestants can help relieve sinus pressure but if the pressure becomes unbearable, a nasal steroid prescription may be necessary, she said. “This is that ‘head-ina-vice’ feeling where the pressure is felt in your eyes, ears and sinuses,” said Valdez. “At this point you should get your doctor involved.”

- Tips for managing eczema. The National Eczema Association says that daily skin care is essential to help manage eczema. When bathing, wash in warm water for five to 10 minutes. Use a non-irritating and fragrance-free wash. Do not scrub skin harshly. Moisturize within three minutes after every shower. It helps lock in your skin’s natural moisture to help prevent eczema-related dryness. In addition to your daily skincare routine, try applying a cold compress to soothe your skin. - When choosing skincare products, look for gentle, fragrance-free washes and moisturizers, such as Neosporin Essentials products, a line of skincare products which includes a daily body wash, daily moisturizing cream and anti-itch cream specifically designed for people with eczema. Each product has a unique Relipid formula, which contains a lipid, humectant, emollient and botanical blend to help retain the moisture essential for healthy-looking skin. Plus, the daily moisturizing cream contains colloidal oatmeal and was clinically shown to restore visibly healthier skin in three days. Use all products as directed. Eczema can be stressful and make daily living challenging and uncomfortable. With diligent skin care and good habits, you can help maintain healthy skin and effectively manage symptoms when they do flare up. To get more information on living with eczema, daily management tips and money-saving coupons, go to neosporinessentials.com. health & fitness • March 2012

It is important not to confuse these nose sprays with popular over-the-counter nasal sprays, which may worsen your symptoms over time, she said. Sore throats The post-nasal drainage sitting on the throat can cause a painful sore throat. For this, Valdez said a combination of Maalox and Benadryl can help ease the pain. Mix 1 tablespoon of liquid Maalox and 1 tablespoon of liquid Benadryl and swish and gargle. “I always suggest spitting the mixture out during the day and swallow only at bedtime because this will make you sleep,” said Valdez. This will help ease the sore throat and also help dry up the mucus. Additionally, warm tea with

honey and lemon can help clear and soothe the throat. Coughing A cough can be difficult to treat, Valdez said. “Not all of the cough comes from your lungs, but also from the drainage, so not all cough medicines help,” she said. Try over-the-counter suppressants like dextromethorphan and use as directed. If the cough does not improve, see your physician so he or she can address where the cough is coming from and the best way to treat it. “If it’s coming from the drainage, you may need a prescription. If a persistent cough is coming from the lungs, it could mean bronchitis,” Valdez said. Fever and pain reducers

If you have a fever and/or pain, take two acetaminophen tablets. After four hours, if you still have pain or fever, take two ibuprofen tablets. You can rotate these every four hours. Valdez said it is very important to be careful when combining all these medicines to make sure you are not doubling up on a single agent.

“Some of these medications may contain a lower dose of any of the above mentioned agents, so check the labels carefully.” Remember those agents are: acetaminophen or ibuprofen for fever/pain, dextromethorphan for cough and pseudoephedrine or phenylephrine and guaifenesen see “Sinus” back page

obituary ily, to travel and to enjoy managing their home and large beautiful yard. He enjoyed time spent with his many friends at the Grandview Nazarene Church, their LIFE group, meeting for coffee at Starbucks and Friday nights at Pizza Hut with Marita. He was a life-long Nazarene Church statesman at the local and district level. He also enjoyed taking time out of his busy schedule to watch grandkids in various sporting events and activities. He enjoyed good health his entire life until the last two months when he fought complications related to cancer. He is survived by a large family who loved him very much; his wife, Marita of Sunnyside; three sons, Allen (Jan) of Grandview, Brian (Ann) of Gilbert Ariz. and Clayton (Brenda) of Oklahoma City, Okla.; one daughter, Doreen (Steve) Larson North of Beaverton, Ore.; one brother, Ernie (Carolyn) of Grandview; one sister, Norma Long of Fairbanks, Alaska; stepdaughters, Carmen (Jeff) Crosno of Spokane and Chris (Miguel) Bazaldua of Sunnyside; one stepson, Kyle (Lisa) Shinn of Granger; 13 grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents; his first wife; and his older sister, Katherine Larson Ruhl. Those wishing to send their condolences may send them to www. valleyhillsfh.com Valley Hills Funeral Home in Sunnyside is in charge of all arrangements.

o Bedlam motion would be the imposition of a $500 fine on Hancock. “I want to stress I take no pleasure, personal or political, in making these motions,” Vlieger said. He then stated that if Hancock apologized and pledged to work within the law and with the council he would not forward the motions. After this statement, Paulakis asked Vlieger if the issue had been discussed with any city council members outside of the current meeting. Vlieger responded that he had discussed it with council members Jason Raines and Craig Hicks. Hancock interjected that he’d also discussed it with Mayor Mike Farmer. The implication was that four council members constitute a quorum, and that such a discussion would violate the Open Public Meetings Act. Mayor Farmer stated that he had not seen the document Vlieger presented to the council before, but did not answer the question of whether or not the issue had been discussed with him. The audience at this point began to call out, and Farmer attempted to restore order. The remainder of the meeting was punctuated with out of order comments from both the public and from other council members. Paulakis again made a statement, but this time he stunned everyone. “I am hereby handing in my resignation from city council,” said Paulakis, inspiring a massive outburst from the crowd and other council members. “At school I put up with juvenile behavior all day. And when I come and want to be around adults, I actually expect that would happen.” he continued “Obviously I’m wrong.” He condemned the attacks, saying, “I don’t want to be a part of this.” At Paulakis’ statement, members of the audience stood up and shouted, and the mayor again attempted to restore order. Council member Jim Restucci asked Paulakis to not resign, saying that he’d considered resigning as well.

“There are businesses around this town that are looking at us and saying, ‘What is wrong with that dysfunctional council?’” said Restucci, to audience applause. “They don’t want to do business in Sunnyside because of it.” Vlieger took the floor to also ask Paulakis to stay, stating that the last paragraph of the letter Vlieger earlier presented to the council said exactly what Restucci had just said. Vlieger then asked the council if they thought they were owed an apology for being maligned in the Daily Sun News. After a statement by Raines, Hancock was given a chance to defend her actions. She stated that she had checked with four different attorneys regarding her actions, including Toby Nixon from the Coalition for Washington State Open Public Government. All of the attorneys, she said, agreed that she had broken no laws and was right to bring attention to the abuse of executive sessions by the council. She read a statement from Tim Ford of the Washington State Attorney General’s Office that said that council had no authority to punish her and would have to go to court to impose a fine. She stated that members of the council were getting dangerously close to defamation of character and she would stand on her record. At this point in the proceedings, a police officer entered the council chambers and stood at the back of the room. He was later joined by a second officer. Restucci took the floor to note that Mr. Ford is correct, and that the council is not a judicial body. No city council in Washington state has ever fined a member, it is not the council’s job, he said. “I’ll tell you right now, if we allow council to fine, based off majority rule, an individual member, I’m done,” said Restucci. “I will not be here. Because I’m not going to come to a meeting where the majority thinks I’ve done something wrong and decides to fine me $500. With all due respect, I’m not rich and I’m not coming every other meeting getting fined 500 bucks.” Restucci said he would sup-

Occasional showers possible. “I’m not trying to bring council together to sing ‘Kumbaya’,” said Restucci. “Because that’s not going to happen.” Beyer did not recommend that an attorney be present at every executive session, but said the firm could make an attorney available for the council at need, given notice. Farmer noted that the subject had been beaten to death, and Sartin approached the podium and asked permission to address the council. He started with a question about the legality of hiring an interim city manager outside of the city then stated that he was upset the council had not hired Mark Gervasi as interim city manager despite his offer to take the role. Vlieger and Hancock got into another dispute, with Vlieger claiming that Hancock hates his guts. Hancock asked Vlieger to not put words into her mouth. Vlieger cited people who had told him about it. “Hearsay is not appropriate for this dias,” responded Hancock. Sartin then made his comments about leaving the city. Former city councilman and dentist Jim Stevens approached the podium and asked permission to speak. Permission was granted, and he indicated that the council was doing a good job and complimented new interim city manager Frank Sweet. He also called out Hancock for what he referred to as “smirking” and scolded the mayor for not keeping control of the meeting. As the meeting had reached its three-hour limit and no council member wanted to continue the arguments, the council voted to adjourn.

port a change in the council rules that would allow a censure, but would not support a censure at the meeting as it was not part of the rules. Further argument about the legality of Hancock’s action proceeded, with the city attorney being asked his opinion. “You’re putting me in a very uncomfortable position,” said city attorney Scott Beyer. “If I were to advise the council on this issue, I’d strongly recommend that occur within an executive session.” Hancock stood by her actions, stating that she had a first amendment right to release information to the press. “Any time you violate the public’s open public meeting act, I will go to the press again,” said Hancock. “I will not give up my first amendment rights to go to the press,” she said. “If I think you have broken the public’s trust then it is incumbent upon me to let the public know you have broken their trust. And if the public disagrees with me, then the next time I come up for election, vote me out.” Hancock noted in her seven years on council this was the first time she’d spoken out about an executive session. And the reason she said she spoke out was because the council had criticized staff members without giving them a chance to defend themselves. “We are treating staff like they are dogs around here, and I’m tired of it,” she said. Vlieger asked how it was possible to hold an executive session when the information from the session could be shared with anyone at any time and council members were not accountable for keeping council discussions private. Hancock said the council members were accountable for their own actions. “I’ll tell you, I’ve held myself accountable to a standard,” said Hancock. “I wish you could say the same, Mr. Vlieger. I would gladly resign if you would also resign because I think you are a big driver of the problems in this community.” Restucci noted that the council was at an impasse and suggested the council bring in an attorney during executive sessions.

State Wide Classifieds The Daily Sun News participates in a statewide classified ad program sponsored by the Washington Newspaper Publishers Association (WNPA), a statewide association of community newspapers. The program allows classified advertisers to submit ads for publication in participating weeklies throughout the state in compliance with the following rules. You may submit an ad for the statewide program through this newspaper or in person to the WNPA office. The rate is $195 for up to 25 words, plus $8 per word over 25 words. WNPA reserves the right to edit all ad copy submitted and to refuse to accept any ad submitted for the statewide program. Individual newspapers retain discretion to refuse to run any particular ad accepted by WNPA for the statewide program. WNPA, therefore, does not guarantee that every ad will be run in every newspaper. WNPA will, on request, for a fee of $25, provide information on which newspapers run a particular ad within a 30 day period. Substantive typographical errors (wrong address, telephone number, name or price) will result in a “make good”, in which a corrected ad will be run the following week. WNPA incurs no other liability for errors in publication.

Breakfast, a great start to the day (Family Features) Does eating breakfast every day sound like a good idea that is hard to pull off? If so, you’re not alone. More than half of adults (54 percent) say they would like to eat breakfast every day, but only 34 percent actually do. Wanting to better understand Americans’ morning meal habits, Kellogg recently conducted one of the largest surveys ever done on breakfast – Kellogg’s Breakfast in America Survey. Findings revealed that nearly all moms (89 percent) want their kids to eat breakfast every day, but 40 percent of moms report their child doesn’t do so daily. “With the school year, the morning time-crunch is on for families, and getting kids to eat nutritiously can be even more challenging,� said Dr. Laura Jana, pediatrician, award-winning author and member of the Kellogg Breakfast Council, a panel of third-party nutrition experts dedicated to helping people understand nutrition information and incorporate nutritious foods and habits

into the diet.  The survey also found that while nearly all toddlers and preschool-age children are eating breakfast, consumption of breakfast dips as American children grow older. About 77 percent of young children eat breakfast every day. The number falls to 50 percent in the middle-school years. Only 36 percent of high school students eat breakfast every day.  Jana maintains that, “Instilling a breakfast habit while your children are young and maintaining it as kids get older – regardless of whether or not they are in school – will help keep breakfast a staple in their daily routine.� The good news is that the dynamic duo of cereal and milk is a quick and tasty source of 10 nutrients important to growing bodies, including calcium, iron, vitamin A, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, vitamin D, riboflavin, niacin, folate, zinc and thiamin.

Milk and cereal can offer a quick and healthy alternative for breakfast. In fact, regular cereal eaters, including children, are less likely to be overweight and have more positive nutrient intake profiles than those who eat cereal less frequently, according to The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. It’s important to look for cereals that contain not just whole grains but fiber. Fiber

Know your stress sources

(Family Features) If you feel irritable, have a hard time concentrating, have low energy or a hard time sleeping, you could be showing signs of stress. In fact, it seems that most Americans are feeling stress these days. The American Psychological Association’s (APA) 2010 Stress in America survey disclosed that stress is taking a toll on physical health, as well as the emotional well-being of individuals and families. The majority of Americans live with moderate to high levels of stress but have a hard time making changes to cope with it. The survey also found that:

If you’re feeling stressed, take heart. There are some things you can do to manage your stress. The APA recommends that you: - Understand how you stress. How are your behaviors or thoughts different under stress? Do you have a harder time concentrating or making decisions? Do you lash out in anger? Or do you experience headaches, muscle aches or lack of energy? - Identify sources of stress. What triggers stressful feelings? Are these stress triggers related to family, health, financial decisions, work, or something else? - Find healthy ways to manage stress. Participate in stress-reducing activities like exercising, meditating, yoga, or talking things over with friends or family. Reaching out for support from others is another important part of stress management. - It’s also important to take care of yourself with regu-
