A taste of home, far away Lynnwood paramedic firefighter whose efforts comfort troops overseas wins state award By Mina Williams Herald writer


aramedic Kristy Forbes, 50, is a dual hero with a cup of joe to share. That is just part of the reason the paramedic of 28 years was selected by the Veterans of Foreign Wars as the State EMT of the Year. She will receive her award at the VFW state convention in Spokane in June. “If ever there was an EMT who deserved this honor, Kristy does,” said Gregg Sieloff, Lynnwood’s assistant fire chief. “She does quite a bit of good stuff.”

The winner is selected by a panel of judges from police and fire departments across the state. Candidates are judged on job performance, community involvement and dedication to their profession. About 150 VFWs across the state each submit a nominee. “I’m very honored and humbled being named for this prestigious award,” Forbes said. She has been with Lynnwood since 1998 as a paramedic firefighter.

Annie Herrera, 13, of Bothell, shares a laugh with her mother, Cheryl, as they show Annie’s minor flare-up of psoriasis (visible on inside of right elbow). Annie is leading a team for the Walk to Cure Psoriasis May 6.

How to help

BOTHELL Annie Herrera used to believe she had to hide having psoriasis. Red blotches and flaky skin made for stares from adults and children and escalated to bullying from her peers. The 13-year-old wore long sleeves during the summer and became withdrawn and shy. Now she’s getting comfortable in her own skin. Herrera is a Youth Ambassador for the National Psoriasis Foundation. During the 2012 Walk to Cure Psoriasis in Seattle on May 6, Herrera will participate in the 5k walk and speak to the crowd about psoriasis. “I just want people to learn what psoriasis is,” she said. Psoriasis is the most common autoimmune disease in the United States. Genetics and external triggers, such as stress or certain foods, each play a role. One of Herrera’s triggers is nickel, so she avoids certain jewelry. Herrera uses special moisturizers

a year ago, her skin broke out into red, bleeding patches. She was sent to Oregon Health and Science University in Portland where a panel of doctors diagnosed her with psoriasis and gave her cyclosporine to shut down her immune system to give her skin a chance to heal. The treatment made Herrera highly vulnerable to sickness and infections. The preteen was pulled out of school and couldn’t hang out with friends and family to avoid getting sick. She was on the medicine for nine months. Earlier this year, Herrera’s doctor released her to attend school part time. She attends two classes per day at Skyview Junior High School in the Northshore district and is homeschooled the rest of the week. Before, Herrera hid herself away and didn’t want people looking at her, her mother said. Getting in touch with the foundation has helped her come out of her shell. “Now she’s not hiding,” Cheryl Herrera said.

and topical ointments daily. She also goes to phototherapy treatments two to three times per week. She immediately showers and moisturizes after swimming in pools as the chlorine irritates her skin. She and her mother, Cheryl, are mindful of which soaps, shampoos, detergents and household cleaning products to avoid. Herrera has learned to ignore stares. “You pick your head up and walk away from it.” She credits her friends who keep her from feeling down, and together they make jokes and nicknames like “scaly fish.” “There’s no time for ‘why me?’ I’m really lucky to have good friends who stand by me.” Herrera started having problems when she was 2 years old and was misdiagnosed with eczema.

Q: How, or why, did you decide to open your business? A: When my wife and her sister decided to do business in America, a sandwich restaurant franchise was one of the top choices. Since we were unfamiliar with business practices in America, Charley’s was a good choice because they provide a lot of guidance to new business owners. When the DVD business I had in California slowed down, I decided to join my wife’s business. We moved to Bellevue after we found more franchise opportunities around the area with Charley’s Grilled Subs. Charley’s serves hot and grilled sandwiches, and we thought that Charley’s would do well in a cooler climate like we have here in Washington. As well, at that time, Charley’s had only four stores in the whole state of Washington.

Club creates space for Freedom of Expression By Katie Murdoch Herald writer

LYNNWOOD There was no shortage of talent or energy surging out of Edmonds-Woodway High School. Teenagers filled the majority of theater seats to cheer, sing along with and swivel their shoulders as their peers performed on stage. Edmonds-Woodway students and staff along with Shorewood High School students expressed their creative side at the Freedom of Expression showcase April 27 at Edmonds Community College’s Black Box Theatre. Students these days are visual learners, said Melody Dankwa, 18, before the show. Dankwa is a member of Edmonds-Woodway’s Black Student Union, which spearheaded the show. “We like art, songs and poems,” Dankwa said. “When we get to express ourselves in different ways, it brings out the creativity in people.” Performers had the chance to show off their singing, dancing, rapping and tongue-twisting, spoken-word chops to a crowd of community members. Freedom of Expression was a benefit show for the Black Student Union. The school club focuses on philanthropy and

The club formed in 2000 but after the original members graduated, the club faded away. Everybody is different and that’s acceptable, said BSU member Jerrica Newkirk, 15.

Latest Village musical includes big twist By Dale Burrows For the Weekly Herald

Wednesday, May 2, 2012

The Weekly Herald

Wedding day: The bride is Jewish, the groom is Catholic. Her monster mom is barking orders like a top sergeant. His mom is a lush holding tight to her mama’s boy. Sleights sting. Tantrums trigger. In sashays the bride’s jealous ex-boyfriend. Yikes! Sounds like the stuff of Village Theatre musical comedy, don’t you think? It is, it isn’t, and I am still making up my mind. Village is written all over the first act. It is big, brisk, bright and bold; not entirely unpredictable, dotted with amusing highlights, polished, pleasant and complete. Almost. The kicker comes in the final moment of the last scene of the first act, just before the curtain comes down. It is so out of nowhere, unprepared for and shocking to the nervous system you question yourself: Did I see what I think I saw? From intermission on, believe me, love and marriage don’t go together like a horse and carriage. You are in groundbreaking territory. Brian Hargrove’s “Book and Lyrics” are his own, smart and catchy with a touch yet to be perfected, and how could it be otherwise? We are talking about scooting a sensibility not yet there into mainstream musical comedy. Also, Barbara Anselmi’s “Music” matches an upbeat pop feel 10 to the forward-oriented concept

He’ll discuss what makes a compelling story, where they find the amazing stories for the show, and how he and his staff are trying to push broadcast journalism to do things it doesn’t usually do. Mixing stories from the show live onstage with his narration, pretaped quotes and music, Glass recreates the sound of the show for this live audience. He also will take questions from the audience. Named by Time magazine as the “Best Radio Show Host in America,” Glass is leading a journalistic revolution and bridging the generation gap as host of “This American Life.” The show premiered on Chicago’s public radio station WBEZ in 1995 and is now heard on more than 500 public radio stations each week by more than 1.7 million listeners, including Seattle radio stations KUOW 94.9 and KPLU 88.5. Under Glass’ editorial direction, “This American Life” has won the highest honors for broadcasting and journalistic excellence. Tickets are $47, $38 or $25 and available through the Benaroya Hall Box Office, at 206-215-4747 or

‘The Pirates!’: Hearty laughs on the high seas By Colin Covert Star Tribune (Minneapolis)

Did you know that the sea monsters drawn on old nautical maps were put there for decoration (probably)? That the main challenge of Charles Darwin’s scientific career was how to attract a girl? That Her Serene Highness Queen Victoria was in fact a ninja? For top-notch historical research and lowbrow high jinks on the high seas, there’s no topping “The Pirates!

It’s not Aardman’s best by a long shot, but the tale’s seafaring shenanigans are leagues above most animated hohummery. The film is loosely based on Gideon Defoe’s book series about comically inept scalawags, with Hugh Grant giving voice to the Pirate Captain, a hairy, walking neurosis. The epitome of British underdog humor, he leads his men on raids against gold-stuffed galleons that turn out to be plague ships or school outings. He hopes to win the Pirate of the Year Award, but since the bounty on his head is a measly 12 doubloons, prospects are dim. When they raid Darwin’s

What is your go-to potluck dish? WE ASKED: Where By Mina Williams Herald writer

Potluck has an old fashioned kitsch born out of church basements and park picnics. Take one gathering of people, add a covered dish in the arms of each and you get one groaning board. Even though the classic covered dish supper has roots in time gone by, most find a sense of excitement gazing down the potluck table dotted with an array of casseroles, salads and desserts. In reality, updated potluck parties are finding their way back into proper entertaining for contemporary hostesses and hosts who want to gather a gang but between work and little league a formal dinner party is out of the question.

Potluck hostesses also pull out a supply of serving platters, baskets and serving utensils before everyone arrives. A power portion of chili could arrive in a crock pot without a serving spoon. Better to have a selection of options at your fingertips than to be washing dusty serving dishes and diving into utensil drawers as guests arrive. Beverages are sometimes overlooked for potlucks and they are the perfect assignment for an under confident cook, the couple with a kitchen renovation project that is dragging on or the guest who just returned from a vacation or business trip. For smaller gatherings a host could also provide the main course, asking guests to fill in the appetizers, salads, side dishes and desserts.

How to check Rx off packing list By Katie Murdoch Herald writer

Wednesday, May 2, 2012

The Weekly Herald

A little careful planning — and preparing for the worst — can help travelers toting prescription medications move through airline security and see that vacation go more smoothly. To start, the best place to carry prescriptions while on vacation is with yourself, either in a purse or a carry-on, said Dr. Anny Soon, an internal medicine physician for Swedish/Edmonds. Further, packing a list of medications, the dosage and the doctor’s and pharmacy’s contact information should certainly be checked off the packing list. “First and foremost people should keep medications on their person,” Soon said. If someone loses their medication while on vacation domestically, or realizes they forgot their medicine, it will make it a lot easier to contact the physician to have a prescription called in or faxed to a local pharmacy, Soon advises. Travelers also should pack enough needed medication for the trip plus extra, ranging between three days to one week, in case traveling goes longer than expected, she said. “But keep the backup in a separate location,” she added. Tightened airline scrutiny might call for a doctor’s note vouching for medications that can make security wary, including injectables and prescription painkillers, she said. The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends bringing a doctor’s note on the physician’s letterhead when carrying prescription painkillers and injectables. Keep in mind certain medications aren’t allowed in certain countries. If that situation arises, particularly with controlled substances, the note can be helpful. Travelers can plan ahead for these restrictions by contacting the embassy or consulate of the country to which they’re traveling. Most forms of prescription medications won’t come as a shock to airline security officials. All medications, in any form or type, such as pills or injectables, and associated supplies, such as syringes or infusers, are allowed through security check14 points after being screened, according

names for medications.

A sample of the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s suggestions for a “travel health kit”:

• Pack a note on letterhead stationery from the prescribing physician for controlled substances and injectable medications.

• Prescription medicines you usually take, including epinephrine auto-injector if using • Special prescriptions for the trip, such as those to prevent malaria or treat diarrhea • Over-the-counter medicines, such as cough drops, antihistamine and a mild laxative

• Leave a copy of your prescriptions at home with a friend or relative. • For international travel, check with the American Embassy or Consulate to make sure that your medicines will be allowed. Source: CDC,

Potatoes can be a spectacular staple when given a seasonal twist. Put spuds into highly trained hands, like those of Seattle’s Chef Kaspar Donier, and even classic mashed versions get a lift of spring flavors. Simply a handful of bright vegetables added into the tried-and-true tuber base brightens up the comfort food staple. Kaspar, owner of Kaspar’s Special Events and Catering, is famous at food events for his potato bar where guests select from a variety of toppings for their mashed root vegetable base. His seasonal approach to cuisine is firmly based in his Swiss roots and his international posts with Four Seasons Hotels.

TSA officials don’t require medications to be labeled but recommend it to speed screening. For those who would prefer to nix the X-ray machine, travelers can request to have their medications visually inspected instead. However,

Pleasing potatoes

travelers have to request this option before the screening process begins and officials can screen through X-ray if the visual inspection doesn’t suffice. Prescription medications are just some of the items the CDC recommends travelers put in a “travel health kit.” Also consider antibiotics, over-thecounter meds to treat such ailments as diarrhea, sunscreen, insect repellent and alcohol-based hand gel.

Instructions 1. Place potatoes in medium saucepan, cover with cold water and add salt. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer about 15 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Drain potatoes and set aside. 2. Heat butter in skillet, add mushrooms, leek, carrot, celery and tomatoes. Sauté over medium heat until transparent. 3. Combine sautéed vegetables, cooked potatoes, spinach, sour cream, heavy cream, nutmeg and cilantro in mixing bowl. Mash potatoes and keep warm in double boiler until ready to serve.

Helping Sporty Kids Dodge Injuries

Advertising Section Wednesday, 05.02.12 The Weekly Herald

By Katie Amodei For the Weekly Herald


Sports injuries for kids and teens can come in one of two forms. Acute injuries, such as a broken nose, sprained ankle or fractured hand, happen instantly, while overuse injuries are more insidious and develop as a result of chronic strain on tendons, bones or joints. Both types of injuries need to be evaluated and treated by a medical doctor or physical therapist, and they usually need rest and time to strengthen and heal, said Michael Chamberlin, a physical therapist at Edmonds Physical Therapy. Sona Nath, a Lynnwood mother of three, learned how severe an acute sports injury could be when her daughter, at 14, was injured during a soccer game. “She was the goalie and she dove for the ball, and another player from the other team accidently stepped on her hand with a cleat. It broke one of her fingers, but the coach still kept playing her,” Nath said. The hand was later looked at by the high school’s athletic trainer, but the young athlete was not advised right away to see a doctor. Four days later, Nath’s daughter was referred to a doctor. She had to see a hand specialist, and required surgery to insert two permanent screws into the shattered bone, then underwent months of physical therapy to recuperate. Acute injuries like Nath’s, which have swelling and inflammation, usually require an immediate visit to the doctor or emergency room. The best way to respond quickly before seeing a doctor is to remember the rule of “RICE”, Chamberlin advised. “RICE” stands for: Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation. “These four things will help an injury, but it still needs to be evaluated by a doctor, not just a coach,” he said. The riskiest sports for acute injures are football and soccer for boys and gymnastics and soccer for girls, according to Lyle Micheli, M.D., author of The Sports Medicine Bible for Young Athletes (Source Books, 2001). Overuse injuries are harder to diagnose because they occur slowly, over time. They can happen when a kid first starts a new sport and tries to do too much too soon, said Chamberlin, or when kids participate in year-round training in one sport – putting repetitive pressure on certain areas of their body. The American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine

(AOSSM) advises against kids between the ages of 6 and 18 participating in rigorous year-round training in one sport. Repetitive motion combined with pressure can cause micro-traumas to their tendons, joints or bones and can cause problems like tendonitis, shin splints, tennis elbow, swimmer’s shoulder, runner’s knee or “Little League elbow.” The treatment for kids in year-round sports with overuse injuries is cutting back on the duration, frequency or intensity of the activity, advised AOSSM. Kids first starting out in a new sport can get help from physical therapy to strengthen areas they are using frequently. Some may benefit from lifting weights to strengthen their hips or ankles; some may benefit from yoga-type stretching to improve flexibility; others may need to do jumping exercises to help strengthen weak hamstring muscles, Chamberlin said. As boys and girls grow, their needs begin to differ. “Girls are four times more likely to have an ACL (anterior cruciate ligament in the knee) injury than boys are,” said Chamberlin. In the teen years, girls have hormonal changes that affect the ligaments around their knees, plus their pelvis becomes wider, making the alignment from the hip to the knee not as straight as a boy’s leg, he explained. “Stretching and strengthening routines can help prevent injury. “It’s important to have a proper warm-up before games or practice.”

“Girls are four times more likely to have an ACL (anterior cruciate ligament in the knee) injury than boys are"

An Encouraging Word …




By Wenda Reed For the Weekly Herald

encouraging news on the cancer front.

Better Prevention

The National Cancer Institute’s latest figures indicate that 41 percent of men and women born today will be diagnosed with cancer at some time during their lifetime. Rates seem higher than they used to be in “the old days” because the median age for being diagnosed with cancer is 66 and the median age for dying from it is 72 – and people used to die of many other diseases before they reached that age. The good news is that the rate of new cancers has been inching down at a rate of about half a percent a year since 1999, according to the most recent annual report issued by the American Cancer Society and the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And the overall death rate for those who do get cancer has dropped by 1.5 percent annually in the past decade. I talked with Dr. Peter Jiang, attending oncologist and medical director for cancer research at the Providence Regional Cancer Partnership in Everett, about

One of Edmonds’ Best Kept Secrets!



Better screening Screening saves lives, not by preventing cancer, but by detecting it when tumors are small and can be removed before they spread to other areas. In research released early this year, scientists have documented a definite link between the use of routine colonoscopies at age 50 and a decrease in colon cancer rates. This is because pre-cancerous polyps can take five to 10 years to develop into cancerous tumors, and removing the polyps is often curative, Jiang explained. Virtual colonoscopies are emerging as an alternative to physical ones and are just as effective. The use of mammograms to find breast cancer is another major success story. “Previously, we used to see cancers in Stage 2 or 3, and now they are often Stage 1,” Jiang said. (Stage 1 cancers are smaller and more localized.) Three-dimensional mammography devices with increased accuracy were approved in 2011. The Pap smear screening for cervical cancer has been around for decades, and has resulted in cases being caught much earlier. The HPV vaccine, approved in 2006, should prevent most instances of this cancer. Researchers at the Fred Hutchison Cancer Research Center and other facilities are closing in on finding good screening markers for other kinds of cancer, including ovarian cancer. Research has just been published showing that low-dose CT lung scans for people ages 55-75 with a history of smoking saves lives. Providence will be one of the first programs in the country to offer it in the near future, Jiang said.

Preventative efforts – aiming to decrease the number of people who get cancer – have had two major successes, Jiang said. The first is a decrease in breast cancer rates as fewer women get hormone replacement therapy. The second is a dramatic drop in lung cancer cases and deaths in response to anti-smoking campaigns. Lung cancer rates have been falling for men since the 1990s and have been falling for women since 2002.

Dramatic advances have been made in the last decade to improve outcomes for those who are diagnosed with cancer. Some of these advances do not necessarily increase survival rates, but they are less invasive and often cause less shock to the body and less harm to noncancerous areas. Jiang mentioned laparoscopic surgery, also called minimally invasive surgery, in which a surgeon inserts instruments, including a tiny camera, using multiple small incisions, rather than one large incision. It’s now commonly used for colon, ovarian and some other cancers. Breast cancer surgery used to involve removal of all or many lymph nodes from the armpit, causing the swelling of lymphedema and loss of mobility. Now surgeons remove only the one to three lymph nodes closest to the breast; if they are free of cancer, no more need to be removed. Improved methods of chemotherapy have resulted in high survival rates, especially for breast and colon cancer, Jiang said. The chemicals are now less toxic, cause less nausea and are more effective. Biological therapies, developed in the last five years, help the body’s own immune system fight cancer. “Monoclonal antibodies stop the blood supply to the

types of birth control: How it works, what it costs By Theresa Goffredo Herald writer

Birth control is again gaining attention on the national stage with President Barack Obama’s mandate that employee health plans include free contraceptive coverage. This national debate raises the question: So what does birth control cost these days? Here’s a primer on some of the more popular contraceptives available, how they work and their approximate cost, based on information from Planned Parenthood.

Birth control pill | The hormones in the pill prevent a woman from ovulating or releasing eggs. The woman must take the pill daily. The cost is between $15 and $50 each month.

Birth control patch | The hormones in the patch are the same as in the birth control pill and work by preventing ovulation. The hormones are released from a small patch that sticks to your skin. The cost is between $15 to $80 each month. Birth control shot | Like other methods of birth control, the shot releases a hormone that prevents ovulation. One shot lasts for three months and costs $35 to $75 per injection. Birth control vaginal ring | The hormones in the ring are the same as in the birth control pill and work the same way. The small ring is put in your vagina once a month for three weeks and costs about $15 to $80 a month. The cervical cap | The cervical cap must be used with spermicide cream or jelly. The cap blocks the opening to the uterus and spermicide stops sperm from moving. The cap lasts for up to two years and costs between $60 and $75. 0001775095-01

IUD | The intrauterine device is a small T-shaped piece of flexible plastic inserted into the uterus by a doctor and affects the way sperm move, preventing them from joining with an egg. The IUD costs between $500 and $1,000 up front, but lasts up to 12 years.

The Weekly Herald Wednesday, 05.02.12 Advertising Section

Birth control implant | The hormone released by the implant prevents a woman’s ovaries from releasing eggs and prevents pregnancy by thickening a woman’s cervical mucus. The mucus blocks sperm and keeps it from joining with an egg. The implant is a matchstick-sized rod inserted into the arm by a doctor. The implant costs between $400 and $800 up front, but lasts up to three years.


Ask the Doctor:

How to Alleviate Those Pesky Seasonal Allergies By Taryn Zier

Advertising Section Wednesday, 05.02.12 The Weekly Herald

I spend the better part of some days sneezing, with itchy, watery eyes. I hate to see the layer of pollen collected on my car each day. An afternoon spent doing yard work? Forget about it. I’d be better off encased in a bubble.


I am an allergy sufferer. I was thankful to talk with Dr. Mary Farrington in the Asthma, Allergy and Immunology department at Virginia Mason Lynnwood. Dr. Farrington was voted one of "Seattle’s Top Doctors" by Seattle Metropolitan magazine in 2010. She offers these helpful tips for allergy sufferers. How long does the seasonal allergy period last in the Puget Sound area? Seasonal allergies typically follow a cycle of tree pollen in the spring, beginning usually in mid- to late-February and peaking in March and April. That is followed by grass pollen, which typically begins in midto late-April and peaks in May and June, but can continue through August. Weeds begin to pollinate in June and continue into September or October. Why does this spring seem particularly bad for allergies? Rain and temperature can affect the amount of pollen produced each year. Last year we had an unusually cold and wet spring and summer, which resulted in low pollen counts and a mild allergy season. This year we are having a more typical weather pattern with warmer and sunnier weather, which has resulted in some days with very high pollen counts. How can people reduce the impact of seasonal allergies? Keep the windows in your home and car shut. Shower nightly to rinse off pollen. Take allergy prevention medication regularly. These medications work best if used before exposure to the pollen; after

exposure, when symptoms are already active, they are not as effective. What’s new on the scene in terms of symptom relief? Many allergy prevention medications are now available over the counter, including Claritin, Zyrtec and, most recently, Allegra, which are excellent antihistamines. If you block histamine action, you help prevent allergy symptoms. Zaditor ophthalmic solution is also available over the counter and works very well to help prevent itchy, watery eyes. Various generic products are just now becoming more avail-

able to consumers, which are less expensive. Do you have any naturopathic advice for those who don't want to take drugs? Rinsing the nasal passages out with warm salt water (saline nasal irrigation) rinses the pollen and allergy-causing mediators and mucus from the nose and can be helpful in alleviating symptoms. I also suggest that patients rinse their eyes out with Refresh eye drops. People can rinse their nose and eyes two to three times daily to help decrease symptoms. Allergy shots (immunotherapy) are also a good alternative treatment. When is it time to consider allergy shots? What does it entail? Generally, if a person's allergy symptoms continue despite medications, or if they are intolerant to medi-

cations or have symptoms for many months of the year, an allergist may recommend immunotherapy treatment. This approach involves receiving regular injections, which help the patient's immune system become more and more resistant to the specific allergen and lessens their symptoms and need for medication. When is it better to take prescription instead of over-the-counter medication? The best medications to prevent allergy symptoms are nasal steroid sprays, such as Fluticasone, which are prescription only. These sprays work locally in the upper airway to help prevent allergy symptoms. Nasal steroids decrease the swelling and congestion from allergies, while antihistamines help decrease itching and mucus (runny nose symptoms) and won't help with congestion. Can people see a general practitioner about allergies? When should they see a specialist? Yes, you can get allergy medications from your general practitioner. An allergy specialist can perform skin tests to identify exactly what you are allergic to, and then come up with an appropriate allergy treatment and management plan. Does having your air ducts cleaned, or getting an air purifier help alleviate allergies? I don’t think cleaning air ducts is necessary. You can get a good filter, such as “Allergy Zone,” for your system instead. They cost about $10. It’s best to keep your windows shut and run the air conditioner if you have one in the summer. HEPA air filters can be helpful in allergy treatment in limited cases, but typically in the scope of pet allergies. I would avoid “ionizers” or electrostatic air filters because they form ozone, which can be a noxious trigger to many individuals. Air purifiers are generally not helpful for the prevention of polleninduced allergy symptoms.

tumor; they’re not killing the cancer cells, but starving them,” Jiang explained. They have been used for colon, ovarian, lung and brain cancers. Most encouraging, has been the use of targeted therapies, finding the specific genes that cause a person’s cancer. “A mutated gene produces a protein that becomes active and drives the cancer cell to grow; now we can block this new cell activity,” Jiang said. It has been most successful for leukemia. In a new clinical trial at Providence, Jiang and his colleagues targeted the HER-2 protein in certain kinds of breast cancer. “It worked so well that the principal has been proved: This is the future of cancer therapy,” Jiang said. This form of therapy for HER2-positive breast cancer should be available soon, pending FDA approval. Radiation for many kinds of cancer has become more precise. Three dimensional computer-aided methods result in more radiation directly on a tumor and less in the surrounding area. It is especially effective for prostate cancer treatment. Finally, Jiang is enthusiastic about the use of acupuncture, naturopathy and other complementary forms to supplement medical treatment for cancer. “We are adopting a more holistic approach, treating not just the cancer itself, but the whole person,” he said.

Surveys show much work ahead By Mina Williams Herald writer

EDMONDS Edmonds needs a community vision and a strategic plan, according to public comments given to researchers through surveys fielded over the past few months. Beckwith Consulting Group, of La Conner, presented its findings to the Edmonds City Council and the Planning Board on April 24. A draft strategic plan, based on the surveys and collaborative “charrettes,” will be available for review and critique 5:30-8:30 p.m. May 3 at the Edmonds Library. The evening will be a drop-in, self-guided event and also will include a survey on who should implement the plan and what performance measures

should be used. Surveys were taken of adult and youth residents, business owners, employees and shoppers. The consultants termed the adult survey return of 681 as a healthy response. Those respondents marked city government “low” in creating or communicating a vision for the city. More than 30 percent felt that was “low” or “very low.” Bus service also received poor marks with this group. Close to one-third gave routes, stops and schedules “low” or “very low.” The city’s arts festival and the Edmonds Center for the Arts received favorable percentages of 80 percent and 75 percent respectively. According to surveys of 219 Edmonds employers, close to half gave the city bad marks in

its regulatory environment and procedures. The City Council was particularly called out by business owners when it came to developing plans and a vision for the city and managing finances. However, good marks were garnered for communicating with the public. The surveys pointed to needed upgrades, improved street scapes and modernization of business-occupied buildings around town. The consultants identified a trend of building

owners not living in the community as the potential roadblock to these moves. “You don’t want to be a city where ownership is absent from businesses,” consultant Tom Beckwith said. “The owners are doing fine, they don’t see the need (for upgrades).” Edmonds adults concurred, identifying the design and appearance of business buildings as in need of attention. “Outside of downtown, most of the neighborhood business are in centers built in the ’60s and ’70s,” Beckwith said. “They look dated. Appearances mean a lot when it comes to prospective businesses.” Edmonds employers, while varied in class of trade, have one thing in common — they are local business owners, not franchise operators. Close to

one-quarter are more than 25 years old. Conversely, 22 percent have only been open five years or less. Employees within Edmonds have generally worked for their employer less than five years. Close to one-half of the 86 respondents were employed by government, education and nonprofit groups. That includes hospitals. On average these employees spend $100 to $500 per month within the city, drive to work and 40 percent live in Edmonds. Respondents not residing in Edmonds cited the price of housing as keeping them away. The consultants predict that by June a strategic plan will be fashioned. They plan to present the council with results from the May 3 open house at the May 22 meeting.

Nominate a great looking property for an award By Katie Murdoch

Evergreen Awards

The Weekly Herald

MOUNTLAKE TERRACE City officials want the community’s help in uncovering neighborhood gems. Nominations are open for the city’s fourth annual Evergreen Awards until May 25. People can nominate themselves or their neighbors’ properties, home or business, for the five categories: Best Maintained Residence, Best Maintained Business, Best Maintained Multifamily Property, Most Sustainable Property and Best Transformation. Nominees will be judged against other property owners in their neighborhood. Properties being marketed for sale are not eligible. There’s a sense of pride that comes with taking care of one’s home and property, said 35-year resident Linda McCann. She and her husband, Terry, were nominated for an Evergreen Award last year. “We had no knowledge 28 they were looking at our

For more information or to nominate a property owner, go to www.cityofmlt. com/cityHappenings/EvergreenAwards.htm or contact Community Relations Director Virginia Olsen at 425744-6206 or volsen@ci.mlt. Nomination forms are also available at: • Mountlake Terrace Library, 23300 58th Ave. W • Recreation Pavilion, 5305 228th St. SW • City Hall lobby, 6100 219th St. SW, Suite 200 Weekly Herald/CHRIS GOODENOW

When she and her husband moved into their home in the Cedar Terrace neighborhood, there was no yard. The couple designed their yard, and it’s become her sanctuary. “It takes me completely away from everything,” she

said. “There are no clocks. I don’t know what time it is, and I don’t care to.” Roy Johnson believes the Evergreen Awards are good idea and wishes more people were involved. “More people should feel proud and take care of

their property,” he said. The 86-year-old tends his property in the Gateway neighborhood by himself. He bought his current home in the 1950s for $6,000 and over the years made improvements himself. Last year he was nominated for an Evergreen Award by his neighbor. “Well, I was pretty proud

of that,” Johnson said. Johnson has always enjoyed gardening, farming and making things grow. This time of year is a pretty one as the rhododendrons are blooming in his yard. The program builds community pride, enhances the city’s image and connects people to their community, city officials said. Staff teams up with the city’s Garden Club members to judge properties and organize the awards ceremony held in the fall. “The program builds a positive connection between the city and folks who may not interact with the city regularly,” said Virginia Olsen, community relations director. It creates more contacts with residents and encourages more people to attend community events, said Penny Merkley, community relations specialist. There is a diverse population of older folks and young families with children and immigrant families who probably wouldn’t meet if it weren’t for the awards, Merkley said.


Longtime councilwoman dies By Mina Williams Herald staff

LYNNWOOD Sharon Rutherford, who served as a Lynnwood city councilwoman for more than a quarter of a century, died of a respiratory illness April 30. She was 75.

forced open, allowing access into the store. Nothing was stolen from the shop, which offers home and garden accessories. The break-in was discovered the morning of April 24. Kinderbritches, in the 400 block of Main St., was also burglarized. The crime occurred between closing April 26 and opening April 27. Blackburn reported that the burglar also gained ac-

cess by forcing open an outside door to a common hallway, then forced entry through the back door into the business. In this case cash was taken from the shop, which specializes in children’s clothing. The motive for the breakins was cash, Blackburn said. He also added that doors at both burglaries were pried open using a tool, such as a screwdriver.

“These were incidents of opportunity,” Blackburn said. “I suggest merchants get an alarm system to protect their property.” He suggested residents and merchants attend the free Burglary Prevention Fair, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., May 5 at Meadowdale High School, 6002 168th St. SW, Lynnwood, to learn more about burglary prevention.

When the Washington state native is not serving the residents of Lynnwood, Forbes is a major serving as a U.S. Air Force reservist flight nurse, performing air medical evacuations. Forbes has been deployed four times while part of Lynnwood’s fire service. She served as a flight nurse between Germany and remote and forward-operating bases with more than 1,330 total flight hours, 430 combat hours and 351 flight sorties to her credit. In 2008, she started a program to bring a little taste of home to deployed service members in the form of coffee. What started as simply dropping off a package of goodies to a service member in Afghanistan as a favor for a retired Lynnwood fire lieutenant and VFW member has blossomed into a global effort. “As a flight nurse I could do this small favor,” Forbes said. “When I realized the big impact this small package had, it got me to thinking. If I could get special treats to forward-operating bases, to people who are missing highlights of their lives, it could just

She focused on delivering the morale packages to deployed first responders. She thought of coffee because of its tie to the camaraderie of a fire house. “A lot of times we share coffee,” Forbes said. “I wanted to extend what we share as a group to deployed troops.” She said that the symbol of sharing coffee points to what firefighters do best — taking care of each other. Firebucks supports that firehouse tradition. Her fellow firefighters jumped on the Firebucks program without question, she said. “It’s been

Lynnwood is wonderful.” With the help of Lynnwood’s VFW Post 1040, more than 90 packages of coffee — more than 200 pounds — have been sent to nearly 30 bases in Iraq and Afghanistan. Support from the VFW comes in the form of covering the shipping costs. Now an average of six packages per month are being sent. Hot chocolate and tea are new additions to the shipments. Christine McCrosky, a Lynnwood paramedic firefighter, and Sam Traxler, a Lynnwood EMT firefighter, have both joined Forbes in comanaging Firebucks. “Most of the packages go to austere and forward-operation bases,” Forbes said. “Having been deployed I know how hard it is not being connected with the world. It inspires me to do more.” “I focus on good quality coffee and chocolate,” she said. Starbucks has donated a lot of coffee. The Lynnwood Trader Joe’s also has contributed. But Forbes relies on private donations of coffee and cash to flesh out the number of packages she knows are needed. She also says that Starbucks instant-coffee packets are especially convenient for troops on the go. “I couldn’t do any of this without the support of my husband,” Forbes added.



Mavs express keeps rolling Meadowdale wins nine straight games, captures first league title since 1991

BY THE NUMBERS 34: Runs scored by Meadowdale and Oak Harbor in a Wesco 3A baseball game April 24 at Oak Harbor High School. The Mavericks prevailed 21-13 but not without some uncomfortable moments. Meadowdale took an 11-0 lead into the bottom of the third inning but saw the Wildcats rally for eight runs. The Mavericks then answered with five runs in the top of the fourth inning.

By David Pan Weekly Herald sports editor

LYNNWOOD It’s been quite a ride for Meadowdale as the Mavericks have risen to the top of the Western Conference 3A baseball standings. Meadowdale has won nine straight games and 13 of its last 14. The Mavericks defeated Shorewood 6-5 to clinch their first outright league title since 1991 in an April 30 game. So it might be somewhat surprising that Meadowdale coach Bill Hummel said that the ascent to first place in the league, at times, has been like a rollercoaster. Hummel points to the two-game series sweep over Oak Harbor. The Mavericks edged the Wildcats 1-0 on April 20 and four days later Meadowdale prevailed in a wild 21-13 contest in which the Mavericks jumped out to an 11-0 lead after two and a half innings. Oak Harbor responded with eight runs in the bottom of the third, which prompted Meadowdale to hit back with five runs in the fourth.

Hawks down Scots By Nick Patterson For The Weekly Herald

MOUNTLAKE TERRACE When facing an ace pitcher, sometimes an offense needs to get creative. On April 25 the Mountlake Terrace High School baseball team reached into that bag of tricks and pulled out a victory. Mountlake Terrace’s manufactured four-run rally in

the bottom of the third inning proved the difference, and the Hawks kept themselves in the Wesco 3A race with a 6-3 victory over the Shorecrest Scots. “It was a real big win for us,” Mountlake Terrace coach Andrew Watters said. “I think that was the biggest quality win we’ve had.” Wednesday’s game fea-

Royals leave struggles behind, learn how to win Lynnwood battling for second place in Wesco 3A

Royal Treatment Coach: Ryan Camden (third year) Season overview: The Royals are not going to win the Wesco 3A title, but no one predicted they would even be in the top half of the standings this year. After opening the season 1-2 the Royals went on a fivegame win streak, capped by a 3-0 win over Marysville Getchell, who they are battling for second and third place in the standings along with Shorecrest. Lynnwood has played just one statetournament game in school history, in 1986 — before anyone on the team was born. Although the team may not make it this year, the Royals, who will only lose four seniors after the season, appear headed in that direction.

The old campus for Lynnwood High School contains bad memories for many members of the Royals sports teams, which generally languished at the bottom of Wesco for years. As much as anyone, the Alderwood mall location brings back dark memories for the boys soccer team. The timing of the new beautiful Bothell campus could not have been better for Ryan Camden and his plan to turnaround what was at the time a lowly program. “Getting away from Alderwood mall,” Camden said, “all those memories were the bad memories that we wanted to get out of the boys’ minds.” Camden was the Lynnwood JV coach in 2009 and acted as interim head coach in 2010 when the team went 0-9 in Wesco play and 1-16 overall.

The team has even had a chance to finish second in the Wesco 3A standings out of nine teams, which was unheard of even last year when the team finished sixth out of eight. “The soccer program was always looked down on,” Camden said of the culture before he took over. “The boys were getting in trouble.” Camden was very intentional about the rebuild-

ing of the team and the success of the 2012 Royals is even ahead of his schedule. “It’s definitely been a surprise year by the amount of success,” junior captain Soren Steelquist said. “I knew we were going to be better than we had in the past but everyone’s working hard and hard work pays off.” Camden expected the turnaround would take three to four seasons, but the players have taken to the culture change and knocked off every team in the league this season except undefeated Shorewood and perennial-power Shorecrest. “We wanted to get a new look on things,” Camden

Mountlake Terrace moves up in softball standings

By David Pan Weekly Herald sports editor

MOUNTLAKE TERRACE The Mountlake Terrace softball team wants to be playing at its best as the postseason gets under way. If last week is any indication, the Hawks are headed in the right direction. Mountlake Terrace recorded four victories in four games and moved into second place in the Western Conference 3A with an 8-3 record (11-4 overall). Everett (10-0, 14-0) looks to be on its way to the league title. “It’s been a great week,” Mountlake Terrace coach Kim

Stewart said. The Hawks started off with a 10-0 rout over Mariner and following up with victories over Meadowdale (8-4), Oak Harbor (13-1) and Marysville Getchell (13-5). Sophomore Maddy Kristjanson has spearheaded the offensive attack with six home runs in her last five games, including a pair of key two-strike roundtrippers against the Mavericks. On the road at Oak Harbor, Kristjanson struck early with a first-inning home run that her parents, who were running late, unfortunately missed. “That was kind of a bummer,” Kristjanson joked. What’s been no joke is the sophomore standout’s production at the plate. “She is making contact with the ball,” Stewart said. “It’s not just home runs. The balls she’s

hitting are pretty dog-gone hard.” Kristjanson was 3-for-3 with two doubles and six RBI as the Hawks wrapped up the week with the win over the Chargers April 27 at Mountlake Terrace High School. “We’ve definitely just been connecting with the ball and working well together,” Kristjanson said. “I think we’ve finally clicked as a team and started to work together, especially at a key time of the season.” Kristjanson also picked up the victory against Marysville Getchell and Meadowdale. She and Rene Bos have shared the pitching duties this season. Not only does the arrangement save the wear and tear on both players’ arms, but the pairing helps to keep the opposition off-balance. “I feel like it’s working out. We have completed different pitch-

ing styles,” Bos said. “She’s more speed and I’m more movement and I feel like us two working together covers all our bases. … I think we’re a great pair.” Bos threw against Oak Harbor, while senior Jesse Printz started the Mariner contest. “Our pitchers have done a great job of keeping us in each game and keeping the ball down, so the defense can make some plays,” Stewart said. “I’m very happy with our defense.” The Hawks’ depth has proved to be an asset with reserves stepping in and performing well when starters were sidelined. “We have a couple of players that can play anything and they’ve really helped us when we’ve had missing players,” Bos said. Stewart noted that freshmen Sammy Harter, Cassandra Cariker, Hannah Wilcox and Huntersmith have helped the Hawks in

the field and at the plate. “Whoever we put in is stepping in and getting hits for us,” he said. The newcomers to the team have played a high level, whether it was coming in as a pinchrunner or getting some key hits, Kristjanson added. “The freshmen have definitely stepped up when we needed them,” she said. “They’ve definitely done their jobs.” Mountlake Terrace has clinched a district playoff berth but seeding is far from settled as Glacier Peak, Meadowdale and Lynnwood are within a game or two of the Hawks. Mountlake Terrace still has games against Lynnwood and first-place Everett. “We still have some pretty tough games ahead,” Stewart said. “We’re not putting much thought into the playoffs. We’ve still got a lot of work to do.” 33

Kristjanson hits six home runs in five games

Busy week ahead for Mavs By David Pan Weekly Herald sports editor

It’s the calm before the storm for Meadowdale’s softball team. The Mavericks, right in the middle of the race for the Western Conference 3A’s No. 2 seed to the district playoffs, weren’t exactly busy last week as the team played only one game, a 8-4 loss to Mountlake Terrace on April 24 at Mountlake Terrace High School. The rest of the schedule could be somewhat as a challenge as the Mavericks are scheduled to close out the season with eight games in 10 days. Meadowdale started out the busy slate with a 6-1 victory over Oak Harbor April 30 at Meadowdale High School. Junior Alyssa Reuble pitched a five-hit, complete game to earn the victory. The Mavericks broke

open a 1-1 contest with three runs in the fifth and two in the sixth. Meadowdale (7-4 in the league, 8-4 overall) is a tie for third place with Lynnwood (7-4, 10-5). Both teams trail Mountlake Terrace (8-4, 11-5) and Glacier Peak (8-4, 11-5) and Everett (11-0, 15-0). Meadowdale coach Dennis Hopkins isn’t too concerned with the packed schedule. The Mavericks have three other games this week against Shorecrest, Everett and non-conference opponent Jackson. “We’ve done it before. It’s not something new,” Hopkins said. Reuble and teammate Shannon Haukap will handle the pitching duties. “We’re fine,” Hopkins said, noting that players

Erica Gott

Chris Osborne



The sophomore standout had productive days at the plate to help the Royals to victories over Marysville Getchell and district rival Edmonds-Woodway in two softball games. Gott was 3-for 3 with a double, a home run, three runs and 2 RBI as the Royals dispatched the Chargers 14-4 in a Wesco 3A game April 24 at Lynnwood High School. Gott then went 2-for-4 with a triple and three RBI to help Lynnwood to a 14-0 rout over the Warriors in a non-conference game April 27 at Edmonds-Woodway High School. Through last week, Gott was hitting .500 with a .627 on base percentage, 21 RBI, 7 doubles, 2 triples and 3 home runs.

The senior helped the Mavericks clinch a tie for the Wesco 3A baseball championship with strong offensive performances in games against Oak Harbor and Everett. Osborne was 3-for-6 with a home run, four runs and four RBI in Meadowdale’s 21-13 victory over the Wildcats April 24 at Oak Harbor High School. Osborne was 2-for3 with a triple and 2 RBI in the Mavericks’ 11-0 romp over Everett April 26 at Meadowdale High School. In the team’s third and final game of the week, Osborne was 3-for-4 with a double, three runs and three stolen bases to help Meadowdale to a 10-2 victory over Everett April 27 at Everett Memorial Stadium.

Lynnwood ended the week with a flourish. After losing to undefeated and league leader Everett, the Royals bounced back with a pair of victories over Marysville Getchell and district rival Edmonds-Woodway in Western Conference 3A softball action. Lynnwood (7-4 in the league, 9-4 overall) is tied with Glacier Peak (7-4, 105) for third place in the league and is just a game behind second-place Mountlake Terrace (8-3, 11-4). The Royals spent some time revisiting their goals following a 13-5 loss to the Seagulls on April 23 at Lynnwood High School. The Royals actually seemed to

regroup during the game. Lynnwood trailed 10-0 heading into the bottom of the sixth inning but then rallied for five runs to avoid having the contest called because of the 10-run mercy rule. “We put five on the board against them. It was late in the game,” Lynnwood coach Matt Rockne said. “It was a spark that said we’ve got to keep going.” Then in a game shortened to six innings, Jasmin Edwards and Erica Gott each had a home run and two RBI, while Jessica Gott pitched a completegame to lead the Royals to a 14-4 victory over Marysvill Getchell in a Wesco 3A game April 24 at Lynnwood High School. Lynnwood beat EdmondsWoodway 14-0 in a

non-league contest April 27 at Edmonds-Woodway High School. Jessica Gott allowed only two hits in the completegame five-inning performance. Megan Crabtree and Desiree Graham both went 3-for-4. “It was nice to see,” Rockne said of the two victories. Though Friday’s game didn’t impact the league standings, Rockne noted that “a win is a win. The overall record could come into play in a tiebreaker situation.” Gott dominated the Warriors. “I told her after the game that it was the best of the season,” Rockne said. “She had command of her pitches. She was intense and focused. She

knew her defense was behind her.” Lynnwood came out strong at the start of the season with five straight league victories but since then the Royals have gone 3-4. “At the beginning of the season we had a lot of confidence and a lot of early success,” Rockne said. “I hate to say it but maybe we rested on it. It came back and bit us a little bit in the middle of the season. We’ve refocused after the Everett game.” Lynnwood is scheduled to host Mountlake Terrace at 4 p.m., May 4 in a game that could have significant playoff implications. The Hawks won 5-1 in an earlier contest. “We’re anxious to play them again,” Rockne said.

ing to bring the team down. That was pretty much all the second year was.” The talent was in the program, but the Royals weren’t a team. Senior midfielder Erick Jacobo was a prime example of the talent and Camden leveraged him as a sophomore to impact the rest of the team in a positive way. “He’s been here through the black hole days and he’s seen the 5-0 losses,” Camden said. “He’s seen the 6-0 losses. He’s seen it all. He was at the old school. He’s seen the coaches go through. “He was one of the main players that I wanted to talk to when I came on. I knew that he was going to be the guy that would instill our philosophy into the players. He was the one that a lot of people looked up to.” When Camden brought on a new assistant staff — Martin Rourke and JV coach Christopher Wright — in 2011 during his first official year as head coach, the new approach began to pay off and the Royals won four games last year. The coaches were proud to see players like Jacobo go through that journey. “To see him smiling this year having fun with the team,” Camden said. “He knows this is his last chance to make those memories. It’s good to have him part of the team to keep our vision alive on the field.” The improvement hasn’t just been on the soccer field. “One of the things that the coaches have been pushing is that we are student-athletes and that it’s not just about what we do on the pitch,” Steelquist said. “It’s about what we do in the classroom. By improving how the team is in the class, I think that it has paid off on the pitch.” Suddenly the talent that has always been there has been revealing itself, like senior keeper Jose Del Rio, who has four shutouts this year. Camden expects Del Rio to play at the college level next year in community college and then transferring to a four year school. The Royals feature a one-two scoring punch of juniors Momodou Drammeh and Vinh Nham that has been deadly. Drammeh uses his lightning speed to get behind the defense and dishes to Nham, who is the team’s goal-scoring leader. “I haven’t seen anyone else in the whole Wesco league with a ball, no one could beat (Drammeh),” Camden said. “He’s a very dangerous player. The thing about him is you can’t predict what he’s going to do. If I was an opponent I’d be scared to go against him.” Suddenly the team that hoped to maybe crack the league’s top four at the beginning of the season, could conceivably make the state tournament, though the Royals aren’t ready to talk about that yet. “Our immediate goal is to get past the first couple rounds of districts then we’ll re-evaluate,” Steelquist said. The scary thing for opponents is that these Royals aren’t done getting better. “I would say we are right on schedule,” Camden said. “We are definitely in the right direction.”

tured two of the league’s premier pitchers as Mountlake Terrace left-hander Alex Hatch and Shorecrest righty Ted Hammond brought their live arms to a game with major playoff implications. But it was the Hawks who found a way to generate runs against their hard-throwing opponent. Shorecrest led 1-0 going into the bottom of the third. But on the first pitch of the inning No. 9 batter Jalen Pahinui laid down a bunt up the first-base line that he beat out for a single. Then on the second pitch of the inning Austin Johnson also laid down a bunt, this time a sacrifice. However, when the throw was up the line, Johnson ran into Shorecrest first baseman Jack Aitchison’s glove and

knocked the ball free, the runners advancing to second and third. One out later Hatch hit a sharp grounder to first. Aitchison came home with the throw, but Pahinui got a good jump off third and slid in just ahead of the tag to get the Hawks on the scoreboard. Josh Fitch followed by pulling a two-run double just inside the third-base line to give Mountlake Terrace the lead. A fourth run later scored on a bases-loaded wild pitch as the Hawks took a 4-1 lead, despite getting just one ball out of the infield. Hatch earned the win, going six innings and striking out nine despite not having his best stuff. “I didn’t have everything, command was a big issue today, but I brought it anyway,” Hatch said. “(The jam in the top of the fifth) was tough, but you have to stay strong through it no

WINNING From Page 32 Mavericks later tacked on five runs in the sixth and seventh innings to secure the victory. “It honestly was a little frustrating,” Hummel said of the game. “I was pleased with the way we answered with five runs. We just had some mental lapses on the mound and some defensive lapses.” The game took two hours and 45 minutes to complete, a sharp contrast to the crisp 75 minutes it took to finish the first contest. “We’ve been on a bit of rollercoaster,” Hummel said. “We’d have some good games and then we’d have some loose games, at the plate or on defense. We’re trying very hard to get off the rollercoaster.” Meadowdale appears to have taken a major step toward more consistency with its 11-0 and 10-2 victories over Everett in a two-game series April 26-27. “We’re just playing well as a team,” said senior Chris Osborne. “Sometimes our pitchers are on and sometimes they’re not. But if our pitchers are off, our offense will pick it up.” The Mavericks will have the league’s No. 1 seed to this week’s district tournament. “We had two good games against Everett,” Hummel said. “We had solid

matter what,” Hatch added. “You have to fight, you can’t make any dumb mistakes or anything like that.” After Mountlake Terrace stretched the lead to 6-3, the Scots brought the tying run to the plate in the top of the seventh. But Fitch, who relieved Hatch to begin the inning, got a strikeout for the final out to record the save. Quintin Barnard homered, while Hatch and Johnson both had two hits and reached base four times for Mountlake Terrace. The Hawks finished with eight hits, seven of those coming during Hammond’s five frames. “I’m pretty proud of the way we hit the ball today,” Watters said. “We have a lot of respect for Hammond, and I was just really proud that our kids took a good approach against him. That was really the key for us, those big hits we got today.”

pitching and solid defense.” Meadowdale struggled at the start of the season with its offense but has come on strong, scoring 10 or more runs in four out of the last six games. “The last half dozen games we’ve swung out bats well,” Hummel said. “Early in the season we were striking out way too much. The kids were trying to do too much at the plate. The kids now understand their roles in the lineup. They’re executing. They’re running the bases extremely well. That’s leading to a lot of runs. “We’ve had contributions from a lot of guys.” Matt Hirsch definitely has been leading the way with a slugging percentage of .740. He’s hit five triples this season and actually has more extra base hits than singles. Osborne also has been having a solid season. “He just does all the things from an offensive standpoint,” Hummel said. “He does a great job of moving runners from second to third.” Grantland Over, in some ways, is an unlikely clean-up hitter, Hummel noted. “We really run our offense effectively through him,” Hummel said. “He can hit and run and he understands how to advance runners. He handles the bat very well. Everyone is understanding their roles.” The Mavericks were a little anxious at the plate early in the season, Osborne

out their opponents five times this season with some stellar pitcher and defense. “We allow very few runs,” Hopkins said. “Defensively, we’re pretty solid.” What Hopkins is looking for are some more timely

said. It took a while for everyone to get used to the new bats, which have the characteristics of wood. “With these bats, pitchers really have to throw strikes for you to hit it,” Osborne said. “We just learned how to used the new bats.” Meadowdale will head to the district playoffs with an advantage in terms of pitching. Actually, the Mavericks have three advantages in starting pitchers Torin Dooley, Sam Herzer and Bill Sullivan. The three have been so effective in getting Meadowdale to the late innings of games that Hummel hasn’t really been able to develop a middle relief pitcher. “We almost haven’t needed it,” he said. “We’ve had better than expected performances into the sixth and seventh innings from our starters.” Having three starters could prove to be a significant advantage in districts, especially if Meadowdale falls into the losers’ bracket. “If we have to win some extra games I feel we have the pitching depth to get through,” Hummel said. “I feel like they can match up against anyone who’ll be pitching against us,” Osborne added. Meadowdale just needs to continue to focus on the basics as it heads into the playoffs. “Pitchers throwing strikes is going to be a big thing, as is being patient at the plate and looking for a pitch to drive,” Osborne said.

hits. The lack of games last week, however, didn’t help matters as Hopkins noted that you can do only so much hitting in practice. “We’re hitting. We’re just not getting the runs,” Hopkins said.

The standings seem to change every day. “It all flips daily, who’s on top and who’s on the bottom,” Hopkins said. “Hopefully, we’ll be seeded where we want to be.”

The Weekly Herald Wednesday, May 2, 2012

n the nine months since we featured the Fiat 500c on our cover, the company has introduced a new version, the Fiat 500 Abarth, named for automobile designer Karl Abarth, who was born in Austria in 1908 and later became a naturalized Italian citizen. The term “small but wicked” was coined for Karl Abarth’s cars in the 1960s, and the 2012 Fiat 500 Abarth was created for track-day enthusiasts and driving purists who, in Fiat’s words, want the ultimate high-performance small car with the pedigree of an exclusive Italian exotic. Alas, the Fiat 500 Abarth that was in our regional press fleet was whisked away unexpectedly but temporarily before I could get into it, so we’ll have to wait on that one — but in the meantime we have the 2012 Fiat 500 Sport to revel in today. The 2012 Fiat 500 is offered in Pop, Sport and Lounge versions. The Sport model is distinguished from the other two by its sporttuned suspension, modified springs, shock tuning, steering calibration and exhaust tuning. It

six-speed automatic with Auto Stick is optional. My tester, equipped with the manual gearbox, has an EPA rating of 30 mpg city, 38 mpg highway. For a base price of $17,500 plus a $500 destination charge, the tester came with an ample list of standard features, including power windows and door locks, remote keyless entry, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, cruise control, tilt steering column, hill start assist and electronic stability control, as well as all of the items already mentioned above. A bountiful assortment of airbags is a plus for any vehicle, but is of special importance in a subcompact car. My tester’s supply included front seat-mounted side airbags, front and rear side curtain airbags, and a driver’s-side knee airbag. In the 500c review it was written that “the car’s handling is a hoot and the fun quotient is sky-high.” The Fiat 500 Sport is all that, and then some. ■
