Morning snowstorm hits city with force

A combination project of a live-in treatment center for drug abusers and a furniture store are coming to Kent later this year along Central Avenue North. A new three-story, 17,435-square-foot building under construction at 945 Central Avenue N. will serve as transitional housing and offices in conjunction with a remodeled furniture retail store at 921 Central Avenue N.. PriceCo will be the name of the store. The nonprofit, Canadianbased John Volken Foundation will operate both the store and treatment center. Volken, a millionaire, started up Welcome Home Society treatment centers in 2005 in North Seattle and Surrey, British Columbia, after selling United Furniture

About 5 inches of snow early Wednesday brought many things to a halt in Kent. The Kent School District closed schools for the second consecutive day. City crews at one point closed about six streets that connect the East Hill and West Hill to the Valley. City street crews were kept plenty busy trying to plow roads after the snowstorm. “We’re just going from one hill to the other hill,” said Bill Thomas, city street superintendent. “South 208th got clogged up around 9:30 to 10 in the morning. We closed it so we could get tow trucks in there to move cars.” Crews closed South 208th Street again in the early afternoon after a semi truck spun out. Other street closures included

omelessness – it is a word, a tragedy and an issue that reflects the complex problems facing our region, state and nation. Every school district, city and community has homeless adults and children living in a nearly invisible world of streets, parking lots, doorways, porches and cars. Kent, as the sixth largest city in the state, has had a fast-growing population of home

til about a year ago and asked that his real name not be used (he will be referred to as J.T.). He is 50 and has never been married. Tate has been married three times and has a daughter and stepchildren. He worked as a warehouse and wastewater employee. J.T. has both a bachelors and masters degrees and is an engineer. He spends many hours now, when not working, on the streets helping the homeless. He tells a very stark story of life on the streets for the homeless. “There is nothing for them to do and boredom brings out problems,” J.T. said. “Especially with the amount of drinking and other things they do.” J.T. believes there are more than 500 homeless men, women and youths in Kent, “living in cars, living in tents and living on the streets.” He stated many of the homeless congre-

They are really not gangsters, they’re just kids. Gangsters at least have an objective, they (the kids) don’t even have an objective,” Many of the kids gather at the library and problems arise. “You start seeing kids kicked out of library, the one place they should be… then you know there is a problem,” J.T. said. According to J.T officers come to the library many afternoons just to try to keep the problems to a minimum. J.T. said he observed one evening when an officer broke up two fights in one evening near the library.

City to reduce some operation hours The Records Office and Mayor’s Office will reduce hours. REPORTER STAFF

RELAY FOR LIFE Participants are wanted to attend the 2012 Relay for Life of Kent Kickoff event at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 26 at the Kent Senior Activity Center, 600 E. Smith St. The American Cancer Society Relay For Life helps communities across the globe celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost and fight back against the disease. The Relay for Life of Kent will run June 1-2 at French Field at Kent-Meridian High School. The event helps raise money for cancer research and care. Teams camp out at French Field during the relay and members take turns walking around the track. Each team must have at least one representative on the track throughout the event. Teams use the months leading up to the relay to raise funds. For more information about the kickoff event and relay, contact Relay for Life of Kent chairman Dave Foltz at 253-686-6799 or email dave.foltz@rflkent.org. Information also is available at www.rflkent.org.

Kent city officials decided to reduce office hours at the Kent Police Station and the Mayor’s Office for 2012 because of budget cutbacks. The primary changes are the lunch-hour closure of the Mayor’s Office and reduced hours for the Police Records Office, which was previously open 24 hours per day, said John Hodgson, city chief

administrative officer, in a city media release. “Due to economic conditions forcing employee layoffs, existing staff are needed to cover other departments where there is more demand from the public,” Hodgson said. “These changes will allow us to continue providing those services with minimal impact.” The city laid off 10 employees effective in January, including a police records specialist. The Police Records Office will be open 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to noon Saturday. The new hours start Feb. 15. The hours of operation

[ HOMELESS from page 1] Many services are available to help the homeless adults and youths, but J.T believes some have quit trying because of alcohol, drug abuse and other problems. “You only get what you put the effort out to go get,” J.T. said. Most don’t have a direction… some have lost their drive… you watch some of them drink and they just get nastier and nastier.” J.T. believes some are being enabled “by handouts. They’ve gotten used to it.” Tate agreed. “Things are out there. You just have put in a little effort to do it.” Tate and J.T. said there are places in Kent to take free showers and get clean up. Many churches provide meals and other services.

It’s a combination of furniture refinishing and repair, retail and housing.� The foundation will move its separate North Seattle operations of a store and treatment center to Kent. “For about three to five years we’ve been trying to find the appropriate campus for everything,� said Steve Dalton, chief executive officer for the U.S. side of PriceCo. “We were looking for a furniture store (it also will sell general merchandise) and on the same site have our living facility.� The store and treatment center are expected to be fully operational by November or December, Dalton said. The housing facility will include as many as 19 sleeping units with a television area, laundry, storage and office space, according to city permits. “They have set up in other places as well,� Wolters said of PriceCo and Welcome Home. “They are a well-regarded service agency.� Wolters said no special permits were needed because the treatment center and store are allowed in the city’s general commercial zone along Central Avenue. The PriceCo store has been the site for various furniture stores since the 1970s, including Vans Furniture. Dalton said “students� for the treatment center are thoroughly checked out before they are accepted into the facility where they will receive counseling and job therapy by working at the furniture warehouse, in a garden area or on the retail sales floor. “We screen with a fine-tooth comb,� Dalton said. “There will be no arsonists or sex offenders. We do background checks and find out what they are being treated for or if they are on certain medications.� Students stay in the program for a

minimum of two years and it can take up to 30 to 35 months before they graduate, Dalton said. Staff also will live on site. Employees will be hired to work in the retail store as not all positions will be handled by those in the treatment program. “We tell them they will not be monitored as closely as this since the day the doctor slapped them on the butt,� Dalton said. “We will monitor to make sure they are where they are supposed to be.� Students accepted into the program pay a registration fee of $387. Everything else, food, housing, clothing, is covered by the Volken Foundation. Graduates of the program receive a $3,000 grant to help them get started for life on their own. “There is no federal, state, county or city funds,� Dalton said. “We run it close to the bone. It’s not fat and sassy.� According to his website, Volken started the treatment centers to help those in need. “I believe that once we have provided for our families, we ought then to work for the good of all; whether it be the arts, amateur sports, public office ... whatever you may choose. There are so many opportunities to make this a better world. Personally, I am motivated by Matthew chapter 25, verse 40: Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.� Dalton said they have no trouble finding referrals for the program. He said just recently he had been contacted by a Salt Lake City man looking for help for his 24-year-old son. Those in the program range in age from 19 to 45. Signs for PriceCo will go up with the slogan of “Save money, change lives.� For more information, go to www.johnvolkenfoundation.org or www.welcomehomesociety.org.

Kent receives grant for salmon recovery

[ SNOW from page 1] South 218th Street, the James Street (South 240th) hill, 42nd Avenue and South 248th Street. Crews were able to keep Smith Street (State Route 516) and the South 277th Street corridor open. Street crews, however, kept so active with the hills that by noon Wednesday they had yet to clear flat roads in the valley such as the West Valley Highway. “That’s part of our secondary attack,” Thomas said. “We’re on the hills first to get them open. We focus on the hills then we spread out.” State Department of Transportation crews were able to clear State Route 516 (Kent-Des Moines Road) between Meeker Street and Pacific Highway South. The snowy weather caused the closure Wednesday of Kent Municipal Court and the Kent Senior Activity Center. The Kent Commons recreational facility stayed open until 5 p.m., but cancelled all programs and classes. Allied Waste cancelled

garbage, recycling and yard waste service to Kent. Customers who have a normal collection day of Wednesday may put out double the load for pickup on their regularly scheduled day next week. Metro Transit ran all buses on snow routes and cancelled some routes. About 1,000 Puget Sound Energy customers on the East Hill lost power Wednesday morning from Southeast 270th Street to Southeast 278th Street and from 137th Avenue Southeast to 158th Avenue Southeast. PSE cleared several fallen trees from power lines in order to restore power. Some people were able to take advantage of the snowy weather. With no school and some people staying home from work, people hit the hills for sledding or tubing.

were purchased with Salmon Recovery Funding Board Grant funds in 2003. The current condition of the project area is vacant and undeveloped. Most of the site is overgrown with dense vegetation growth, including blackberries. The western parcel has been cleared and graded

due to recent demolition and removal of buildings and structures used for the former nursery. This work was completed by the city in 2010 through a grant funded by the King Conservation District. The middle two parcels are vacant and undeveloped. The eastern parcel,

a former slaughterhouse, consists of mowed grass and a small vehicle parking area maintained by the city. “Salmon recovery does more than just help salmon, it also helps the many businesses dependent on healthy fish populations,”

The city of Kent received a $253,581 grant Dec. 12 from the Washington Salmon Recovery Funding Board for a Green River project along Frager Road to help increase survival of juvenile Chinook salmon. Known as the Downey Farmstead project, the work will balance flooding, fish and farming objectives in an area that has been identified as critical to increase survival of juvenile Chinook salmon, according to a state Recreation and Conservation Office media release. The board announced Monday nearly $30 million in grants to organizations around the state to help bring salmon back from the brink of extinction. “These grants do two things: They provide needed money for local organizations to help repair damaged rivers and streams and protect the most pristine areas,” said Don “Bud” Hover, chair of the state funding board. “They also create jobs. They will put people to work improving the environment and restoring something that is important to Washington’s

economy: salmon.” A state Department of Fish and Wildlife study in 2006 pegged the economic impacts of commercial and recreational fishing in Washington as supporting an estimated 16,374 jobs and $540 million in personal income. This new round of grants is expected to provide more than 300 jobs during the next four years. The Kent project is scheduled to be constructed in 2013. City staff will use the grant to complete the design and get permits for a project to realign Frager Road to allow creation of a side channel network and expanded floodplain at the Downey farmstead on the south bank of the Green River. The goal of the project is to create habitat for Chinook salmon to rear, rest and hide from predators. A secondary goal is to create additional flood storage to help alleviate flooding in urban and agricultural areas. The road alignment will provide a greater buffer from the river and will continue to be open to vehicular, bicycle and pe-

OUR CORNER

The future of book publishing As a reporter and a fiction writer, the transformation of the traditional publishing industry has been fascinating. A mere 15 years ago, the Internet was considered an afterthought for newspapers, and no one would have guessed it would eventually sound the death knell for brick-andmortar bookstores such as Borders. I remember when Amazon first proposed the idea of electronic books through the use of a Kindle when I was a sophomore in college. I thought it was a curious novelty. It didn’t occur to me at the time what sort of upheaval such a device had the capacity to cause on the industry. I recently was given a Kindle Touch for Christmas and already I can tell why people are so enamored with it. It is compact, light and it carries around dozens of books within the space necessary for a small notepad. More importantly, it has changed the way people look at book publishing. Many authors who once spent years trying to convince a literary agent to represent their book, TJ Martinell

COMMENTARY

Question of the week:

bout six months ago, Netflix announced it would be raising its rates by as much as 60 percent, something that caused a massive public furor among its 23 million subscribers. I recall reading posts on Facebook and Twitter about it. Many railed against the rate hike while others attempted to remind folks that having DVDs delivered to your mail box for eight bucks a month is nothing short of a luxury. Talk about a first world problem, right? When the rate changes were announced in July with plans for the hike in price to go into effect in September, I was among the angry subscribers, but I also saw the point made by those who tried to give the ranting cheapskate movie fans some perspective on the matter. I was shelling out about $11 a month for one DVD a month with unlimited rentals, so to speak, along with unlimited streaming of digital media over my Wii or computer or whatever device I wanted to use. We had just dropped down to that plan a few months earlier because we found with having a toddler and both of us working, it didn’t make sense to pay for something we weren’t using. By the time September rolled around I realized we had a DVD that had been sitting by the BluRay player for more than a month and I couldn’t remember the last time we had streamed a movie or TV show. Because we used the BluRay option, I paid a couple bucks extra each month, so the price hike would have meant $20 a month for unlimited

streaming of content and the one DVD at a time with as many movies as we could watch a month. Seemed silly to pay nearly twice as much for something we didn’t even use and likely wouldn’t use anytime soon given our schedules and the demands of parenting. As a result, I canceled the service, and I was also really annoyed by the price hike. I didn’t want to pay more when I was trying to eliminate unnecessary expenses from my life. I had cut our cable bill, our cell phone bill, axed my satellite radio subscription and tried to cut back on eating out. With a small child, a mortgage, a car payment and other bills that come with home ownership it only made sense to be better with our money. But, when it came to Netflix, I was just mad. I tweeted about it, joining in on the cacophony

of “Dear Netflix…” posts that voiced displeasure over the changes, but rather than just complaining I made a vow. With the $20 a month I would not be spending I pledged to put that toward a charitable cause. My last payment to Netflix for services rendered was in September. And I have yet to donate a penny. Yes, my moral outrage petered out pretty quickly, as did my commitment to my pledge. This occurred to me during the morning of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. I have no idea why. Maybe the posts on Facebook about what Dr. King did to make change got me thinking. Then I remembered about a website I read about a month or so ago called DonorsChoose.org.

and then more time to obtain a deal with a publisher, can now have their book available to just about anyone in the world at little to no cost. There are, however, plenty of downsides to self-publishing and e-books, as I myself have found out. If you can publish, anyone can publish. Whereas in the past literary agents and publishers performed the role of gatekeepers to what books came out, the gates have been thrown back, allowing just anybody to become an “author.” Yes, it has allowed many good authors to get their books published. It has also permitted people who have no sense of literary talent whatsoever to get their book published. And the problem is it is impossible for readers to swim through the ocean of titles and locate quality books, unless the author invests plenty of time and money into marketing their novel, which leads to another problem. Often, a bad writer can gain attention because they have the cash to blow it on, while a broke, but excellent writer remains relatively unknown. And then there are writers like myself, who have neither the money, nor the self-promotion skills necessary to successfully market our work. We also don’t have the money to pay a copy-editor to edit all the minuscule mistakes we missed during our 35 revisions. And frankly, I believe there is a true need for gatekeepers, because there is no way for an author to truly know if their writing is good or poor. Just because your mother loves your novel, which sounds eerily similar to Twilight, doesn’t make it worthy of a reader’s money and time.

Despite all the raving about Kindles, however, I still think there is a demand for hard copies of books. For example, it’s hard to showcase your original edition of a favorite novel when it’s sitting on a hard drive inside of your Kindle. It’s also hard for authors to hold signings for their books if they are sold electronically. My prediction is that within the next 20 years, most books will be sold purely on an electronic format, and the publishing industry will have shifted dramatically over to marketing and promotion. When they sign deals with authors, they will promote their e-books through advertisements and use their professional contacts to get newspaper and literary reviews. They might possibly have the book available for publish-on-demand, because in that situation there will be no financial risks, since the book is only published when it is purchased by a customer. There will still be traditional books, however, except they will be reserved for those which the publisher believes will sell enough copies to bring them a specific revenue percentage after the costs of publishing are taken into consideration. Essentially, the authors who sell millions of copies will still be seen in grocery stores and small bookstores. For the majority of authors, who sell around 3,000 copies, they will be confined to Kindles and Nooks. As for myself, I am not particularly worried or concerned, as I write for my own enjoyment and fulfillment. If a publisher ever happens to find it worthy of a reader’s eye then it’s simply an added pleasure to a personal passion.

Teachers can go to the site and submit requests to fund projects in their classrooms. Kent School District educators ask for helping building their classroom libraries, for money for items such as dry erase boards or items called manipulatives that offer hands on learning of concepts or other tools that enhance their ability to help their students learn. These ideas are simple, inexpensive, creative and innovative. But, there’s not much money in building budgets for them anymore and teachers only have so much spare cash to spend, so they’ve asked for help. Another website has popped up called SA500 Kids, one which works in partnership with DonorsChoose.org, which you can find at http://www. oo.com/sa500kids. There are nearly two dozen requests for funding from Kent educators. There are more Covington schools on Donors Choose if you want to get hyperlocal in your support. In any case, Sarah Kehoe, a reporter based in the Kent Reporter office is going to write about SA500 Kids and projects in Kent schools.

years ago. He helped start a foundation called See Your Impact, where donors give small amounts that go a long way, at a website called seeyourimpact.org. The concept seemed pretty cool to me. So, the plan is to make $80 worth of small donations in the coming week, to put my pledge into action. I am going to donate

$80 because it has been four months since I gave Netflix any money. Had I continued using the service I would have paid about $20 a month. I would be thrilled if anyone was willing to match my donations or would consider finding something in their lives they could cut out for a month of two so they could give a little to some of these projects in

our area. If you think about the huge impact of a number of people giving $10 or $20 could have in a classroom in a local school, it could have a ripple effect into the community and into the future, so check the sites out. I know if I can live without Netflix and make that change be beneficial to kids then surely you can find a way to do some good, too.

Bloomers to add during the winter months Hellebores: The Lenten Rose or Christmas Rose Here’s a perennial that has gone from obscurity to super stardom without even having it’s own reality show. Hellebores are woodland plants that happen to love growing in western Washington and are even slug, deer and freeze resistant. Add the fact that they thrive in the shade of cedar and fir trees and you’ve got the perfect performer for your Northwest winter garden. It is all the new varieties that have made this oldfashioned cottage garden plant suddenly Twitter worthy and Facebook proud. A variety named Jacob has pure white blooms that fade to green and this proud winter bloomer holds it’s blossoms on upright stems Marianne Binetti

The third week of January is the start of the gardening season – yep, the Tacoma Home and Garden Show runs Jan. 25 through Jan. 29, followed by the Northwest Flower and Garden Show in February and then a bumper crop of garden shows, plant sales and blooming celebrations to welcome the 2012 growing season. So what’s going on in the garden on in the midst of winter’s dark days? The joy of the winter garden celebrates hellebores, heathers and snowdrop bulbs with signs of spring popping up all over. If your own landscape looks bleak this time of year, it’s time to consider adding these bloomers to brighten a January day

rather than nodding downward like most hellebores. Another early-blooming hellebore, called Ivory Prince, bloomed for seven months in a container garden on my front porch. You don’t even need a garden to enjoy the blooms of Jacob the hellebore this month. Local growers have discovered this perennial does well indoors as a temporary houseplant. Snatch one up at a local nursery, watch the blooms unfold and enjoy the gentle fragrance. Once the flowers are done you can add this hellebore to a shaded part of the garden or, if you don’t have a garden of your own, offer the plant to someone who does. Heathers You can enjoy drifts of color from winter-blooming heather and these low, shrubby plants will even bloom again in the summer if you remember to shear off their spent blooms right

Think of a certified arborist as a tree doctor of sorts BY DENNIS TOMPKINS

What the heck is a certified arborist? And why is the designation important to homeowner? The simple answer is that in many respects we are like tree doctors. That seems to answer the question in most people’s minds. But it really goes much deeper than that. Anyone can call themselves an “arborist� that can spell the word. But only those that have completed a certification process can earn the professional designation of “certified arborist�. The International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) requires passage of a comprehensive examination on the art and science of tree care, at least three years of practical experi-

ence, membership in a professional organization and participation in continuing education programs. Certification measures the tree Dennis Tompkins knowledge of an individual, but it cannot guarantee quality performance of work. That is something a potential consumer must judge by asking questions, checking references and, for those arborists involved with tree services, being certain they are bonded or otherwise properly insured. Those of us that have earned the designation take pride in it. While we feel we can offer quality and conscientious services, we also be-

after they flower. The secret to growing great heather is to keep the fibrous root system from rotting by not planting them too deep. Don’t use a mulch near the crown of the plants and make sure new heather plants get plenty of water the first summer they are in the ground. When it comes to adding winter-blooming heather to the landscape the best advice is to visit garden centers in winter and pick out plants in full bloom. Heather propagate easily and new varieties are introduced each year. The tiny leaves and microscopic flowers make this evergreen shrub easy to ignore unless you plant it in the landscape in groups of five to seven or add your winter-blooming heather to patio pots near the house. Winter Blooming Bulbs Snowdrop, crocus and dwarf daffodils are all peeking up from the frozen

lieve that we have an important role to help educate the public about proper tree care.

SERVICES ARE VARIED Many certified arborists are selfemployed individuals that perform all their own services. Some are WSU Master Gardeners that are adept at diagnosing pest problems. Others have crews and offer expanded tree care and landscape services. Public agencies also have employees that have attained the designation. Many offer pruning services. Certification not only means that an the arborist will use the proper techniques for tree care, but that he/she also knows what not to do to improve the health, safety and appearance of a homeowner’s landscape. Tree removal is a big business. The primary goal of certified arborists is to use removal as a last resort. They are trained to use their best judgement, experience and tools to evaluate the health and

safety of trees and to make appropriate recommendations. Such tree hazard assessments may recommend removal where construction or other activities have drastically altered a tree’s growing environment, serious defects are visible or root diseases may be present or are suspect. While it is not possible to predict if or when failures may occur, an arborist can point out the possibilities to be aware of. Damage appraisals may be called for under various circumstances. Certified arborists use widely recognized tree formulas to estimate the value of trees. For large trees that are a significant feature in a landscape, values can easily be several thousands of dollars. Many offer legal services that may include expert witness testimonies at depositions and trials.

winter ground this month. If you want a closer look at these delicate beauties dig the bulbs from the ground now, set the plant, roots, bulbs and all into a tea cup with a bit of soil and enjoy a tiny garden on your tabletop. In Europe, the nurseries sell bags of moss to drape on top of indoor winter bulbs while they are in flowers. After you fool Mother Nature and force the bulbs to bloom early indoors you can return the spent bulb, foliage and all to it’s planting hole outside and the spent bulb will live to flower again next winter. All Together Now Add some winter color to your planters, window boxes and front entry garden with a combination of hellebores, heathers and winter-blooming bulbs. Poke in some stems of pussywillow or cut branches of winter greens for a back drop of more color and you’ll have a beautiful cure for cabin fever.

Kimmie Meissner ‘Love on Ice’ show BY STEVE HUNTER shunter@kentreporter.com

Kimmie Meissner works out preparing for her performance in the �Pandora Unforgettable Moments of Love on Ice�. SARAH KEHOE, The Reporter voice and put so much into his song that I wanted to do that with my program. I think it raises the level of your skating sometimes.� Meissner’s competitive ice-skating career came to a sudden halt two years ago when a dislocated right knee cap and tendinitis forced her to withdraw from a chance to make the 2010 U.S. Olympic Team. She placed sixth in the 2006 Olympics. She suffered the knee injury in 2009 while performing a triple axel. In 2005, Meissner became the first American woman to complete the triple axel jump in competition since Tonya Harding in 1991. Since Meissner began skating at age 6, she struggled with giving up competing because of an injury. “I miss it,� she said. “I’m a really competitive person so I definitely miss competing.�

When Meissner returned to skating last summer with ice shows nearly every weekend, she found out how much she had missed her sport. “I’m having a really good time doing these shows and want to be able to love what I’m doing and not make it feel like there’s so much pressure on me,� she said. “I want it to be fun and that’s what this is for me.� As with many ice shows, Meissner, who lives in Bel Air, Md., ends up skating with former rivals. “Me and Emily Hughes competed against each other and were always neck and neck,� Meissner said. “I just did a show with her in New York City and we are friends. We were so competitive and now we go hang out and have dinner.� That kind of life works for Meissner. “I just love being able to go out and perform again,� she said. “Not having it for

With her smooth and gracious moves at Kent’s ShoWare Center, Kimmie Meissner showed how much fun life can be as a professional ice skater. Meissner performed a practice routine last week at an empty arena to help promote the “Pandora Unforgettable Moments of Love on Ice� show at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 26 that features skaters performing to love-inspired music. The 22-year-old will skate to a live performance at the show as Gladys Knight sings “I Hope You Dance.� Meissner, the 2006 World Champion, 2007 U.S. National Champion and 2007 Four Continents Champion, sprinted, spun and danced on the ice to a taped version of the song by Knight so a newspaper photographer and television cameraman could get shots of her. She even agreed to skate within inches of the cameraman as he positioned himself on the ice for a shot. “I prefer skating to live music even though it can be completely different,� said Meissner after her practice. “It’s fun having the artist there because you are both trying to make this one performance really good.� Even a taped version of “I Hope You Dance� definitely inspired Meissner during practice. She had warmed up for a bit without music because of technical difficulties at the ShoWare, but began to speed up her routine and moves with the music. “I knew who Gladys Knight was and knew her songs, but she was not really someone I listened to,� Meissner said. “But after hearing this song that I knew because of the Lee Ann Womack version, I heard this and she has so much soul in there I love listening to it.� Meissner will get a chance to rehearse one day with Knight before the actual performance. She found out during the Pandora holiday ice show in November in Phoenix the thrill of skating to live music when she performed to David Archuleta singing “What Child is This?� “I have this huge crush on him, so it was hard,� she said about working with Archuleta, the 2008 “American Idol� runner-up. “But he has such a beautiful

two years and the way I had to stop (because of injury) this just makes me appreciate it so much more. I love being able to go out there with all my skating friends and traveling.� She enjoys seeing so many U.S. cities. This marked her first trip to Seattle. “We went to the Space Needle and it was a perfect, clear day,� Meissner said. “�I love Seattle so far and it’s not raining. I called my friends yesterday and said it was beautiful and I could see all of the mountains.� Meissner is studying physical therapy at the University of Delaware. She took this past semester off to focus on skating, but might want to become a therapist with a sports team or maybe the U.S. Olympic ice skating team. She also has thought about working with cancer patients, partly because of her work as a spokeswoman for the Cool Kids Campaign, an organization she helped found that helps children with cancer. Besides skating to the Knight song in Kent, Meissner also will perform solo to a Beyonce song and do opening and closing numbers with the other skaters. The lineup of skaters includes Olympic ice-skating champions Ilia Kulik and Ekaterina Gordeeva and current World champion Miki Ando. In addition to Knight, saxophonist Kenny G, who grew up in Seattle, also will perform live. The show is part of the NBC Skating Series and will be presented by The Joint Center at Renton’s Valley Medical Center. NBC will tape the event to be televised on Saturday, Feb. 4. Ticket prices are $125, $100, $69.50, $59.50 and $39.50. The $125 ticket includes an on-ice, post-event reception. The $100 ticket includes a pre-show dinner.

By the end of that decade, populations had dwindled so much that salmon and bull trout were listed as threatened or endangered in three-quarters of the state. Those listings set off a series of activities includ-

ing the formation of the Salmon Recovery Funding Board to oversee the investment of state and federal funds for salmon recovery. Funding for the grants comes from the federal Pacific Coastal Salmon Recovery Fund and from the sale of state bonds. In addition, nearly $11.6 million is dedicated to projects in Puget Sound, as part of Gov.

THE COMMON GOOD While a home in the suburbs may have met the needs of a growing family, empty nesters often opt for a different setting and lifestyle for their retirement years. With years of yard work and home maintenance behind them, seniors find that life in a retirement community frees them to pursue common interests with people their own age in an age-appropriate setting. Retirement communities offer a quiet lifestyle that is also exciting in that it encourages the development of friendship with like-minded couples and individuals who want to concentrate on the people and pursuits they deem most important. It is also reassuring to know that professional support and medical care are readily available, providing everything needed for a secure future. PARKSIDE RETIREMENT COMMUNITY provides a warm, caring, homelike environment without the headaches associated with property maintenance. We strive to provide sense of community, and we treat our seniors like family members. To learn more about our offerings, reach us today at (253) 939-1332. Allow us to schedule a meeting and tour of our unique senior community, conveniently located at 2902 I Street, N.E. We have been locally owned and operated since 1972. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re here for you! P.S. Retirement community living often incorporates universal design in one-story living that best facilitates senior mobility and access.

entwood Highâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball teams sure like to play at ShoWare Center. On Monday both the girls and the boys squads won in the 2nd Annual Valley Medical Center Showcase, which featured seven games, as the Conquerors positioned themselves for the playoffs. In the afternoon, the Kentwood girls put away Federal Way, 57-42. It was a close contest in the first half, with the Conks leading the Eagles by six at halftime, but Kentwood ran away with the game in the second half. A 26-point fourth quarter for the Conks sealed the double digit victory against an Eagles team that came into the game near the top of the South Puget Sound League 4A South Division. Balanced scoring, just what the young Kentwood squad has used to its advantage much of the season, made the victory all the easier. Sophomore Jenny Johnson led the squad with 14, followed by senior point guard Maddison Rankinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 13 points, along with Sarah Toeainaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 11 while Alexis Berrysmith added 8, Kate Kramer chipped in 6 and Alycea DeLong put in 5 points. Kentwood played again Tuesday night then will take on Kent-Meridian on Friday. In the final match up of the evening, the Kentwood boys took on Thomas Jefferson, playing it close early, with the scored tied at 13-13 with 4:41 left in the second quarter after a Daryon James three for the Raiders. Thanks to aggressive defense by the Conquerors, the Raiders turned the ball over a number of times

DENNIX BOX, Kent Reporter on errant passes, double dribble calls and traveling. Kentwood was able to convert a number of those turnovers into points in transition. Jefferson closed a 2113 Kentwood gap in the second quarter to 23-18 at halftime but the Conks scored seven points in the first 85 seconds of the third quarter to take a 30-18 lead. At the point, Kentwood never looked back, extending the lead throughout the second half and winning the game 66-39. Spreading the ball around on offense worked well for the boys, too. Austin Benson, who made multiple trips to the free- throw line, led the Conks with 21 points on 9-for-11 at the charity

stripe. Jackson Huerta and Joe Kramer tallied 19 points apiece while Jeremy Smith and Taylor Jones added 18 each. The win, coupled with Kent-Meridianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loss to Kentridge earlier in the evening, sets up a key contest on Friday between the Royals and the Conquerors. Both teams are at 8-3 in SPSL North play and are at the top of the division with Kent-Meridian having won the first match up between the two teams earlier in the season.

GOT PAIN? EXPERIENCE RELIEF LIKE NEVER BEFORE

Terry Lemerond’s curamin enhances the body’s natural defense mechanisms for the relief of pain due to over use. His new formula represents the latest hot breakthrough. The Science of Natural Pain Relievers In the health care industry, curcumin needs little introduction. Medical health writer Jean Carper extolled curcumin in her book Food–Your Miracle Medicine, she pointed out studies done in India show that it works as well as powerful drugs in staving off pain and inflammation, though it is merely a humble herb. “Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, is better at maintaining healthy inflammation levels than even cortisone, one of the most powerful of the steroids,” Terry says. “The curamin that I recommend in my formula is particularly rich in various types of curcuminoids, which are active molecules responsible for the herb’s beneficial pain response. In fact, curcuminoids in curcumin are approximately 100 times as potent as regular curcumin in helping the body to maintain healthy inflammation when combined with DLPA and boswellia.”

Colton Marlowe and Sean Farr continue to dominate for Kentlake on the wrestling mat. In both duals last week, Marlowe won the 145 pound weight class by pin, while Farr beat Brandyn Bangsund of Kentwood on Jan. 11 in a technical fall thanks to a series of aggressive shots and work on the mat. Farr followed that up by beating Tilden Sansom of Auburn on Jan. 12. Kentlake lost both dual meets, however, falling 4621 to Kentwood and 42-33 to Auburn. Dalton Meyers, a sophomore from Kentwood who went to state a year ago, beat Kentlake’s Josh Beckler 6-1. Beckler bounced back in the 132 pound weight class the next night with a pin of Auburn’s Bailey Minnar with just a few seconds left in the first period. Kevin Rodriguez had a similar experience in the 138 pound class, losing 12-0 to Kentwood’s Logan Bearss, then turning around and pinning Auburn’s Christian Loomis the next evening.
