A snow day is one thing but a snow week can wreak havoc on a school district’s schedule. Officials from the Kent School District had to cancel school on Monday due SCHOOL to a litany of DAYS weather-related issues from last week’s storms, but all schools had power and were open on Tuesday morning. Power outages, downed tree limbs and disrupted supply deliveries forced the district to take another day to recover from the snow and ice storms which hit the week of Jan. 16. On Monday, Kentwood High still didn’t have power, along with several elementary schools

The numbers in Kent tell the story about the impact of January’s snow and ice storms.

That’s the record number of calls the Kent Fire Department responded to on Thursday, Jan. 19 when the ice storm hit. Firefighters average about 44 calls per day, said Kent Fire Department spokesman Kyle Ohashi. Most of the 453 calls were for fallen trees and power lines in addition to medical aid. That number shattered the previous 24-hour record of 226 calls during the Dec. 15 2006 windstorm that caused extensive power outages. “I was working at our emergency coordination center most of the day so I knew we had a lot of crews out,” Ohashi said. “But

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

less people since the Great Recession hit in 2008. There are government officials, religious and humanitarian groups trying to bring assistance to those who have fallen on tough times. This story is the third of a three-part series on homelessness and living on the streets in and around Kent. In the previous two installment in this series, 51-year-old Orville Tate and a 50-year-old man who is referred to as J.T.

because he asked that his real name not be used, described the experiences they have encountered on the streets in Kent and around the region. J.T has been working for about a year and is no longer homeless. He spends much of his off time helping the homeless. Tate has been homeless since 2009. He lived for a period of time in shelters, but now survives on the streets day and night. Both told stories of men and women who are surviving tough times, and others who have given up. J.T. stated alcohol and drug abuse are a major factors for many who have lost hope. He added some of the homeless simply drink so they don’t feel anything. “They are always trying to be numb, and it takes more and more to do that,” J.T. said. Each man said there are services available to help the homeless, but the problem

is both deep and wide and not easily addressed by a government or humanitarian groups. “There are a lot of facilities out there you just have to go find it,” J.T. said.

YOUTH ON THE STREET J.T. and Tate both described a growing problem of teenagers living on the streets in the Kent area. Along with teens, there is the serious trouble of drugs. According to J.T., there are kids who have a home who come to live on the streets for a weekend or a week as a party. A check with official sources confirmed the statements J.T. and Tate made about some of the kids living on the streets.

ABOUT WILLOWS PLACE: Back in 2008, Brian Raines, of Raines Recycling had been giving out pizzas behind his Kent warehouse. Each Thursday night, people that were hanging out in the alley with no place to go got something to eat from Raines. This community of homeless and hungry grew as word spread. The community of Raines’ friends and family who showed up to help grew as well. Sally Goodgin, of Catalyst Travel, Kiwanis Club of Kent, and now Raines’ mother-in-law, was one of the helpers. All this activity got her connected with Richard LeMeiux author of Breakfast at Sally’s, the story of his journey from “having it all” to being homeless and back. This led to Goodgin and Raines unofficially launching Willows Place (Willow is the name of LeMeiux’s dog). Since its informal beginnings, in the fall of 2010 Willows Place has found partners to help move indoors, then find a more permanent location, and serve up to 120 individuals on any given Thursday night. The Board of Willows Place has been instrumental in engaging with local Kent restaurants, businesses, and religious, civic and service organizations. Participants in Willows Place set up and clean up, cook, serve, and distribute donations each week. Participants include the AAA Pest Control, Albertson Law Group Mark D. Albertson Esq., Catalyst Travel, Chapter 8 LLC (formerly Urbia Fresh Café), Christian Science Church & Reading Room, Down Home Catering, Golden Steer Steak & Rib House, Herban Feast Catering, Kiwanis Club of Kent, Kiwanis Key Club, Maggie’s on Meeker, Messiah’s Hands and Feet Outreach, New Beginnings Church, Project (U) th, Raines Recycling, and many more volunteers and donors. Willows Place maintains an Executive Board which includes local Kent individuals Sally Goodgin, Director, Sue Froyd, Vice Chair, Lois Deusen, Treasurer, and Eli Palko, Secretary. Mr. Albertson submitted official application for and is awaiting 501(c)(3) non-profit status.

Train-truck collision injures man BY STEVE HUNTER

shunter@kentreporter.com

A 46-year-old Auburn man suffered minor injuries after the tow truck he was driving collided with an Amtrak train in downtown Kent. The collision occurred at 5:57 p.m. Tuesday at the West Smith Street railroad crossing, according to a Kent Police media release. The train was traveling southbound on the Burlington Northern Santa Fe tracks. Witnesses told police that the tow truck traveling eastbound on Smith Street bypassed the lowering traffic control gates at the intersection and moved onto the crossing in an attempt to clear the tracks. The train then entered the crossing and the train and truck collided. The first police and fire responders were at the crossing within 2 minutes of the incident. They found the truck driver standing alongside the tracks with minor injuries. Paramedics transported the man to a local

A Kent firefighter also was sent to the hospital for an undisclosed medical reason. The firefighter was treated and released at the hospital. The fire broke out at 10:38 p.m. and displaced four people.

hospital for further treatment. As with other rail crossings through the downtown, the Smith Street crossing is equipped with large, light-reflective gates, as well as red flashing signals and audible bells, said Kent Police Sgt. Jarod Kasner. Kasner said that once the warning lights start flashing, vehicles and pedestrians are required to stop at the marked stop lines and clear the tracks. Movement across the tracks after the warning signals are activated is prohibited and dangerous. “Tonight (Tuesday), all those who were involved were very fortunate,� Kasner said. The area around the rail crossing was closed while law enforcement and train officials conducted their investigation.

The fire started when heat from a portable generator ignited the cedar siding of the single-story house, according to a fire investigator. The family started up the generator because power was out in the neighborhood because of the icy weather. Firefighters arrived at the house to find flames shooting through the roof. Freezing conditions made fire fighting operations more hazardous than normal as firefighters moved carefully on the snow-covered roof and grounds. Firefighters had the fire under control by 11:25 p.m. No other homes along the dead-end street were affected. The family will stay with relatives or neighbors.

Kent Police arrested a woman for investigation of harassment after she reportedly interrupted an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting Jan. 17 in the 300 block of Third Avenue South. An officer heard a female yelling from just south of the Kent Police Station and went with another officer to investigate, according to the police report. A witness told the officers that the woman became loud at the meeting and began accusing other members of being child molesters. When the woman was asked to leave, she allegedly became angrier, balled her fists, assumed a fighting stance and threatened to hit another woman. When officers arrived they recognized the woman from past incidents and noted she had a history of drug and alcohol abuse as well as mental health issues. They also said she can become confrontational very quickly. The officers arrested the woman without incident and transported her to the city jail. The woman also was arrested last month for fourth-degree assault and harassment, according to jail records.

HARASSMENT

Kent Police arrested a man for investigation of harassment after he reportedly threatened a Metro bus driver at about 12:30 a.m. Jan. 17 near the Kent Transit Center, 301 Railroad Ave. Officers received a report that a driver had been threatened by a passenger along Route 180, according to the police report. Police met the bus at the Transit Center and stopped a man as he left the bus. He was the only male passenger on the bus and officers recognized the man from previous incidents. The driver told police he had picked up the man and a woman in North Kent. The man asked the driver for a transfer pass. When he received the pass, he clenched his fists and leaned toward the driver, their faces just inches apart. The driver back away. The passenger then laughed and walked toward the back of the bus. The driver told officers he thought the man was going to punch him. [ more BLOTTER page 5 ]

When asked why he still did it if he knew it was wrong, Overton replied to detectives, “I’m not gonna turn down money from a girl.� Overton ranks third all-time in UW history with 177 steals and fifth all-time with 390 assists. Overton led Franklin High School of Seattle to a state basketball title in 2006.

The Kent promoting prostitution trial for ex-University of Washington basketball player Venoy Overton has been continued to April 2. Overton’s trial date had been set for Jan. 23. But Overton requested and received a continuance on Jan. 6 in King County Superior Court from Judge Mary Roberts, according to court documents. Overton and defense attorney James Bible listed further investigation and negotiation as the reasons for the request to continue the case. Prosecutors agreed with the motion for continuance. If convicted as charged for seconddegree promoting prostitution, Overton faces up to five years in prison and

a $10,000 fine. Overton, 23, of Seattle, posted bail June 30 after about two weeks in the county jail in Kent. He pleaded not guilty to the charge of second-degree promoting prostitution. Kent Police began their investigation of Overton in May when undercover officers contacted an 18-yearold woman for prostitution activity on Pacific Highway South, a well-known area for prostitution in Kent. That woman told police that Overton had arranged for her to work the streets as a prostitute, according to charging papers. Kent Police arrested Overton June 16 in Seattle for investigation of second-degree promoting prostitution. Overton graduated earlier in June from the UW. The woman told police she met Over-

OUR CORNER

Preparation and some luck Every time a storm rolls through like the one we had last week I park my rear-wheel-drive Mustang in the garage. This year I was fortunate enough to have my mother-in-law’s 2006 all wheel drive Chevy Equinox at my disposal so I was able to get around. Oh, don’t get me wrong, I can drive my Mustang in the snow but I love my car and don’t wish to endanger it among the motorists who don’t know how to drive their AWD or four wheel drive SUVs in the white stuff. Plus, it’s no fun slipping around or getting stuck, nor is chaining up to get out of my neighborhood then removing the chains once out on the main roads. Still, it’s not really the snow that gets us around here. It’s the ice that inevitably comes along with it — on the hills we have all over the region — that can cause problems. Or the crazy thing that happened on Jan. 19 Kris Hill Staff Writer

Question of the week:

ducation, schools and school teachers are hot topics everywhere parents or politicians are locked in the same room these days. The recent State Supreme decision on the Constitutional requirement to fully funding schools created quite a furor among political leaders in office and those hoping to get into office. Education was even a bullet point in President Obama’s State of the Union speech Tuesday evening. It is a compelling subject and of critical importance. I think it may be the single most difficult issue the Legislature will wrestling with this session considering they are starting with a big black hole in the budget. Everybody worries about their kids receiving a good education and getting a decent shot in life. Living life is not all that easy – good education or not. Taking shots at teachers is an age-old sport. I always keep my mouth shut about teachers since herding a group of 10-year-olds is far beyond my skills, much less teaching them anything beyond cute words I learned in the Navy. One of the teachers that I remember was Miss Cass. She was my seventh-grade science teacher who had taught my mom, my brothers and sisters and me. I can’t say she affected me for the good nor can I dream up some fuzzy story about how my life was changed because of her. It wasn’t. Other than her voice, there was a story about her my dad told me that has stuck with me. She had an odd, nasal voice that was incredibly easy to mimic for a brainless seventh-grade

boy, which I was. I can still do a dead-on impression of Miss Cass. The best thing for the boys in her class was she had a bunch of dead pickled things floating in jars on shelves in her classroom. A perfect conversation breaker to help a 12 year old talk to a girl. My dad told me the in the 1950s someone in Enumclaw got the bright idea to call her a communist. Hunting for commies under every bed was a popular sport in those days and teachers were at times an easy mark. Apparently, whoever pointed the finger at her never had to face her in class when you didn’t know the answer to some science question like what is the makeup of the bunch of brown goo that looks like puke. The exchange went something like this as I remember. “I don’t know Miss Cass, how about puke.” “How about I hit you with a pen.” I lived in the days of corporal punishment, which meant Miss Cass could whack me with

a pen, although a big stick would have been more effective. My dad told me they pulled her before some sort of sedition board. I can just see her – short, plump, walking in that room probably looking at a bunch of cowering former students trying to be politically correct for the 1950s. Dad said she never sat down. She stood there and waited for the meeting to be called to order – she was proper that way. Once the meeting was gaveled to order, Miss Cass promptly told the gathered cast, according to my dad, “to go straight to hell.” I bet it was the only time in her life she came close to swearing. She turned around and walked out. She was still in the same classroom 15 years later whacking me with a pen and pounding seventh-grade science into my rock head. She was a good teacher.

when we were all expecting it to warm up and rain. Instead, we got freezing rain then snow on top of it, something none of the weather forecasters predicted. In fact, Cliff Mass, a meteorologist and professor at the University of Washington (whom I consider the go-to weather expert when things get extreme) even essentially said, “Oops, our bad,” on behalf of weather forecasters. OK. Actually, what he said on his blog, cliffmass.blogspot.com, “Well folks, this is not my profession’s finest hour. We had forecast the continuation of the light freezing drizzle of yesterday (an irritant, but not a major threat) and then a warm-up today with rain coming in late. Our models did not indicate that the precipitation would move so far north, so fast.” I would bet, however, based on numerous discussions about weather preparation with Covington’s Public Works Director Glenn Akramoff, that he wasn’t surprised at all by the turn for the unexpected worst. Back in December 2008 Akramoff told me his staff tried to be ready for any other potential circumstances that could follow snow as the weather changed such as flooding as the temperatures rose, freezing rain or wind storms. I am pulling that directly from a sentence I wrote in a story dated Dec. 18, 2008, the last big, nasty snow storm I remember.

Last week was crazy to me because I felt even more of an outsider looking in than normal. I was able to get to work and drive around in the weather thanks to the Equinox (and, I won’t prevaricate, I love driving in the snow with the right vehicle). My house lost power but for little more than 24 hours. At first, the snow was a lovely thing, as it coated lawns and hillsides with the perfect stuff for snowmen as well as sledding while leaving the roads passable. It first arrived when kids weren’t in school. But then it kept kids out of school in Tahoma for four days and Kent for five. Then the power went out. We all saw the trees laden with ice and it wasn’t long before they started breaking under the weight of the frozen rain along with snow, taking out power lines, littering the road with limbs causing greater disruption than the snow. In the midst of all that, the Los Angeles Times had the chutzpah to call Seattlites “snow wimps,” send a surge of outrage regarding the apparent hypocrisy rippling through social media and local news outlets. Yep, other media wrote stories about how the LA Times wrote a headline calling us out up here in rainy Seattle, something which kind of made me chuckle. Still, I agree with the outrage. Ad hominem attacks don’t belong in headlines, especially for stories about weather. Seriously.

Happy news about a new Kent I was thrilled to see the headline in the Jan. 6 Kent Reporter titled, “Downtown Kent Project a year down the road.� It can’t be soon enough for me!

[ HILL from page 6] Shame on the LA Times. As I write this on Monday afternoon, I know folks in East Kent who still do not have power, while most in Covington and Maple Valley have it back. Still, by the time this column hits print, clean up may still be under way around the region as well is in our own communities. In the end, this is why I park my Mustang somewhere, because Mother Nature is unpredictable at best and downright cruel at worst. Somehow, though, we all

manage to get through it and with each big storm we all learn something. And it’s late January, so, it’s entirely possible we could have another storm of some kind so I hope you’re all prepared. It’s one thing to know how to drive in the snow, how to steer out of a skid after hitting a patch of hidden ice, but it’s another thing entirely to get through more than a day or two without a power. Especially, when like me and many of my neighbors, you have pets and young children, so that’s an area where I will try to be better prepared.

ENOUGH CASH TO GO AROUND? One issue that must be addressed by the executor of a will is that there are sufficient liquid assets (cash or assets that can be quickly converted to cash) to pay the bills of the deceased’s estate. If there are not enough funds to cover the debts, assets must be sold, which should be done prior to distributing property to beneficiaries. If there are not enough assets to pay all of the debts, state law will dictate the priority with which outstanding debts must be paid. As a general matter, funeral expenses and fees are to be paid in full before other creditors are paid. If you have any questions about the duties of an executor or about writing or executing a will, then you should call 425-227-8700.

From December 2010 to December 2011, employment in Washington increased by an estimated 29,600 jobs. An estimated 297,430 people (seasonally adjusted) in Washington were unemployed and looking for work in December. As of Jan. 17, 71,141 workers in Washington had run out of all unemployment benefits. Employment Security is a partner in the statewide WorkSource system, which offers a variety of employment and training services for job seekers, including free help with interviewing skills, rĂŠsumĂŠs and job referrals.

more costly initiatives in 2008 and 2011, neither of which identified a source of funding. Both have since been suspended by lawmakers. It’s easy to support well-intentioned programs, especially when you don’t have to decide how to pay for them. We got away with it during good times, because the new programs and services were paid for with surpluses and growing tax receipts. Those days are over. But initiative backers realize that it’s much harder to get voters to approve your measure if the price tag is staring them in the face. For example, last year, the Service Employees International Union wanted to put an initiative on the ballot that would reinstate training and certification requirements for long-term care workers. Those requirements had originally been part of an initiative approved by voters in 2008, but lawmakers suspended them for lack of funds. SEIU had filed several versions of its “reinstatement� initiative with the Secretary of State that did identify funding sources — a $1 per pack cigarette tax increase, a $1 per liter liquor tax increase, or various other tax increases. In the end, they chose the version that did not specify how it would be paid for. It was approved

by voters but never funded by lawmakers. What about the courts? Couldn’t they step in and force lawmakers to fund these programs? Perhaps not. In 2010, the State Supreme Court was asked to compel Gov. Gregoire to include funding in her budget for wage increases that had been awarded by an arbitrator to home health workers. The court declined, citing the governor’s discretionary budgetary power. In reality, all this turmoil is unnecessary. There would be no need to force funding of suspended initiatives if all initiatives placed on the ballot were required to specify what they will cost and how they will be paid for. However, this may not happen anytime soon. After all, it’s far easier to get voters to approve new spending if they don’t have to think about how to pay for it. Perhaps initiative backers are content to know that, even if those costly obligations are delayed or suspended, they stay on the books. When the economy begins to recover, the added costs from all those suspended initiatives will kick in again. But it’s time to stop playing games with our initiative process. Voters have a right — and an obligation — to know how ballot initiatives will be paid for.

W

ould you buy a new car or a new house without knowing how you’ll pay for it? Of course not. But Washington voters do something similar every time they approve a costly initiative without specifying how it will be paid for. That needs to change. In 2000, voters overwhelmingly approved two initiatives to hire more teachers and provide annual cost of living increases for all K-12 school employees and faculty at community and technical colleges. Even though the measures would increase spending by hundreds of millions of dollars, neither initiative identified a source of new funding. Within a couple of years, the cash-strapped Legislature suspended both measures. In 2004 and 2010, voters were asked to approve new taxes to pay for those suspended education initiatives. They overwhelmingly refused. That didn’t stop voters from approving two

Pruning trees in preparation for the spring

The last week of January is a good time to sharpen your shears and get outdoors for some winter pruning. There are plenty of plants to get snippy with now but some you should not be pruning. Do not prune tender trees and shrubs like nandina, magnolia, camellia, hebe and hardy fuchsia this week. Wait until the weather warms in late spring to prune cold-sensitive plants because pruning always stimulates growth and you want these light sleepers to remain in the fog of winter dormancy. Instead, make

The old rule says that the best time to prune is when the shears are sharp and this is meant to stop the procrastinators that never get around to pruning because they blame the time of year. In our climate, you can prune most plants when they are dormant, in the winter months from November to February.

alive – only if you want more fruit or to train the tree to stay low or thin so the fruit is easier to harvest. Thinning can be done on fruit trees now to open up the center of the tree and allow more sunlight to hit the fruit. Just cut off a thin or inward-facing branch at the joint where it sprouts from a larger branch. A thin branch is anything less than a finger width wide. When pruning pear or apple trees you can also make heading cuts. This is when you shorten a long branch so you leave only two or three buds. Some orchardists call this type of cut “tipping back� and it encourages more fruiting spurs to emerge from the

[ HOMELESS from page 1 ] “These kids are doing stuff you wouldn’t believe,” J.T. said. “There is so much meth and stuff out there and it is so easy to get for them. They go out and do that and they’re strung out for at least a week afterwards.” Tate said, “I have people come up to me all the time, ‘you wanna to buy some weed, wanna buy some meth you want to buy this, you wanna buy that.’” J.T. said there are “12 to 14 year olds out on the street thinking it is cool. I know a couple of them (that) their parents want them to come home and they won’t go home.” Both Tate and J.T. said drugs and alcohol are easy for kids to find on the streets. “It’s out there and it is easy to get,” J.T. said. “Right in the parking lot of the library.” J.T. feels many of the people getting picked up by police on the streets are homeless alcoholics who need help, but the drug dealers disappear when an officer is near. The numbers of youths on the street is a moving target as it is with adults. “The younger population is really out of control,” J.T. said. “I am talking about the ‘wanna-be gangster kids.’ Most of them don’t need to be on the streets. About one of three need to be there.” J.T. estimated there are about 500 homeless on the streets in and around Kent, and “at least a third are kids.

J.T. and Tate stated that Kent and surrounding communities try to help homeless in many ways. There are food banks and emergency shelters. Catholic Community Services provides many services along with numerous churches and government agencies. Willows Place is an organization that has for many years been working with the homeless. Members of the Kent United Methodist Church along with other churches and groups hope to found a day center for the homeless in Kent. “There are a lot of good people around trying to help,” J.T. said. Tate said panhandling shows how giving the community is in Kent and Covington. “In a four-hour period I could make a hundred dollars easy,” Tate said. “I had four or five jobs I got (while panhandling). I wasn’t out there to rip anybody off. I just needed enough to get me through.” The two men both hope a day center is part of a solution, but each said the system for the homeless is designed to fail. J.T. described abuse of food stamps where homeless people can take their stamps to certain stores and exchange them for money, which is used to buy alcohol or drugs. He said most of the stores participating in this activity, which is illegal, are in Seattle, but there are some in the Kent area. “If you’re going to help these guys, help them,” J.T. said. “That’s why this day center is such a great idea. The boredom (from being homeless) leads to drinking and doing drugs to pass the time.” J.T. and Tate said about two out of 10 are really trying to get off the streets. Many of the rest have given up and fallen into a cycle of daily alcohol and drug abuse. “It may not have started out with alcohol or drugs, but it ends up there,” J.T. said. Tate said he would like to volunteer to help others when he gets on his feet. “You have to find a need for these guys,” J.T. said. “I don’t think you would have to go crazy, just get them a job where they feel like they have a need in society. I am not saying giving them 20 bucks an hour, that’s not feasible. But give them some use in life, instead of handing them stuff, which is food stamps in general. They need a reason to live, and it is that basic.” To view parts one and two of this story, visit www. KentReporter.com. Reach Dennis Box at dbox@kentreporter.com or 253-8726600 ext. 5050.

www.kentreporter.com The district’s Technology Expo scheduled for Jan. 18 at ShoWare Center in Kent had to be postponed as were several College Goal Sunday events scheduled for last week. The College Goal events were planned to help high school seniors work on federal financial aid application forms for college. On Monday, Tahoma School District officials were on a two-hour delay schedule due to icy roads in the early morning hours. The weather impacted the end of course assessment schedule for algebra and geometry students at Tahoma High and Tahoma Junior High, requiring those tests to be rescheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday of this week. According to Tahoma district spokesman Kevin Patterson, the first snow day will be made up Friday, “which would otherwise be a non-student day for a semester break.� “Other snow days would be made up in June,� Patterson wrote in an email. “We won’t make a final decision on other options, such as moving one of the waiver days to June and using it as a makeup day, until we see how many cancellation days we have. We probably won’t know for certain (on makeup days) until February, except for the Jan. 27 date.� Reach Kris Hill at khill@covingtonreporter.com or 425-432-1209 ext. 5054.

[ SCHOOL from page 1 ] including Covington and Soos Creek. By late Monday Kentwood still did not have power. “We also have power lines and downed trees limiting access at a number of schools,� said district spokesman Chris Loftis in an email. “Our own maintenance and operations teams are working with (Puget Sound Energy) to systematically correct each issue.� By Monday afternoon, Loftis wrote, there were only three schools in the district — which is the fourth largest in the state and covers a significant geographic area — without power. The decision was made to get kids back to school on Tuesday. “Our objective through all of this has been to keep our students, staff, and facilities safe and to get back to regular classroom operations as soon as possible,� said a statement released by the district on behalf of the Kent School Board of Directors and Superintendent Edward Lee Vargas. “Our work is important, our students need us, and our community counts on us. The district is in the process of requesting a waiver of makeup days from OSPI. When we have a response to that request we will be able to finalize the revised calendar.� Additionally, the board and superintendent signed off on moving a previously scheduled optional day at the end of the first semester from Monday, Jan. 30, to Monday, Feb. 6, making next Monday a regular school day for students and staff. The first semester will instead end on Friday, Feb. 3. But, it wasn’t just five missed days of school due to inclement weather for Kent students.

One woman had a tree fall across her driveway and needed to get out to receive dialysis treatment, Ohashi said. Firefighters were able to cut up the tree so the woman could get out of her driveway. The department also had 180 calls on Jan. 20, making it the fourth busiest day ever.

PSE crews restored more than 386,000 customers in Western Washington since the snow and ice storms. The company had 280 crews assigned to 311 power outages.

t was watching Olympic gymnasts on YouTube elegantly moving on the balance beam that made Delanie Cornwell want to be a gymnast. “It looked so cool and I wanted to learn how to do everything they did,” said Cornwell, 18. Cornwell started gymnastics in seventh grade, falling in love with the sport right away. “At first everything was just fun and not taken too seriously,” she said. “Then I went to high school and it’s still fun, but we have to work really hard and prepare ourselves more, which I like better.” The senior at Kentwood High School is excelling this year and is meeting the goals she set for herself in the past few meets. During her last invitational meet against Auburn Mountainview High School, Cornwell took third place in the balance beam and bars. “The pressure from the meets is a good thing for me because it pushes me to be better,” she said. Cornwell credits her coaches, teammates and work ethic for her success. “There are some things that come easily to me, but some things that take awhile,” Cornwell said.

“Luckily I have her talents to col“I have a great great coaches that coaches that lege. encourage me at “I know that encourage me at every moment no matter what every moment and and that helps a happens I will that helps a lot.” lot.

Hot weekend of football lead they never relinquished. Brady will be making his fifth Super Bowl appearance on Feb. 5 and if he is able to win he will cement himself in the conversation as one of the greatest of all time. The Giants and 49ers were in a defensive struggle and as in most close games, turnovers proved to be the difference. Kyle Williams, punt returner for San Francisco, fumbled on a punt return. The Giants recovered just outside the red zone and were able to kick the game winning field goal. Now we await the rematch. Tom Brady versus Eli Manning is expected to be a high scoring shootout with all the fireworks we can imagine. The Giants defense presents all the Chris Box

Voice of Sports

Wow! Could you ask for a better conference championship weekend from the NFL? New England barely held on to beat Baltimore on a shanked 32-yard field goal by Billy Cundiff. Then in overtime the New York Giants won 20-17 over the New England Patriots after recovering a fumbled punt by Kyle Williams. The Ravens were able to hold Tom Brady to a subpar day statistically, but he made the plays he needed to make. The recognition he showed on fourth and goal from the half-yard line was outstanding. The Raven linebackers were playing two yards back in the end zone. Brady took what they were giving him. He swan dived over the center and stretched the ball across the goal line to give the Patriots a 23-20

same problems it presented Tom Brady in 07, an unbelievable pass rush, which will be relentless all game. Brady will need to take advantage of all his weapons if he hopes to avenge his 17-14 loss to Manning in Super Bowl XLII. I believe the Patriots offense is more multidimensional than the last time these teams met in the Super Bowl, which will prove to be the difference in the game. Brady will be able to negate the Giants pass rush with their multiple tight end sets and their up-tempo style will wear the Giants down. Iโ€™ll take the Patriots 38-35.

NOTICE OF APPLICATION A project permit application was filed with City of Kent Planning Services. Following is a description of the application and the process for review. The application and listed studies may be reviewed at the offices of Kent Planning Services, 400 W. Gowe Street, Kent, WA. DATE OF NOTICE OF APPLICATION: January 27, 2012 APPLICATION NAME/ NUMBER: BOEING LEVEE PROJECT ENV-2011-17/KIVA #2113481 SMC-2012-1/KIVA #2120001 SMA-2012-1/KIVA #2120045 PROJECT DESCRIPTION: The applicant proposes to construct an earthen berm and flood-wall levee for flood protection at the Cityโ€™s Three Friends Fishing Hole Park, adjacent to the Green River. The levee top will be about 5.5 feet above the 100 year floodplain elevation of the river. The berm and flood wall will act as a secondary levee to the existing levee on the right (east) bank of the river. The project is part of a larger effort to have the entire levee system within the city limits accredited by FEMA. Accreditation of this levee will remove areas behind the levee from FEMA flood maps which will reduce development restrictions and FEMA flood insurance require-

ments in the Kent Valley. Landscape screening plants, including seven trees along the eastern boundary of the site will be removed, as will portions of the grass area adjacent to the parking lot. However, as this project is approximately 130 feet away from the top of bank, existing vegetation and riparian habitat along the river bank will not be disturbed. The proposed earthen berm and flood wall levee is located within the Cityโ€™s Three Friends Fishing Hole Park. Access to this park is at 19970 Russell Road, just south of S 200th Street. This site is identified as King County parcel numbers 6600210360.The zoning for the site is M-1, Industrial Park. OTHER PERMITS AND PLANS WHICH MAY BE REQUIRED: Flood Zone Permit, NPDES Construction Permit, Hydraulic Project Approval (HPA). PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD: January 27, 2012 to February 27, 2012 All persons may comment on this application. Comments must be in writing and received in Kent Planning Services by 4:30 P.M., Monday, February 27, 2012 at 220 4th Avenue South, Kent WA 98032. For questions regarding this project, please contact Matt Gilbert at (253) 856-5454. TENTATIVE HEARING: A public hearing is tentatively scheduled for 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday March 7, 2012. This public hearing will be held in the City Council Chambers at 220 4th Avenue South, Kent, WA 98032. Please be advised this meeting date is subject to change.

Following is a description of the applications and the process for review. The applications and listed studies may be reviewed at the offices of the Kent Planning Services, 400 W. Gowe Street, Kent, WA. DATE OF NOTICE OF APPLICATION: JANUARY 27, 2012 APPLICATION NAME: SR 516 to S 231st Way Levee Improvements APPLICATION NUMBERS: SMC-2012-2 / KIVA #2120176 SMA-2012-2 / KIVA #2120135 ENV-2012-1/ KIVA #2113588 PROJECT DESCRIPTION: The City of Kent Public Works Department proposes to construct an earthen berm levee for flood protection in several segments along the right (east) bank of the Green River between State Route 516 and South 231st Way. The existing levee will remain. The top of the new, secondary levee will be 20 feet wide and will be between 1.5 and 3.5 feet higher than the existing levee, depending on location. The intersection of James Street and Russell Road will be shifted approximately 18 feet to the east to accommodate the new levee berm. Near SR 516, the existing roadway of 62nd Avenue South will be raised to act as the new levee berm. This project is part of a larger effort to have the entire levee system within the city limits accredited by FEMA. Accreditation of this levee will remove areas behind the levee from FEMA flood maps which will reduce development restrictions and FEMA flood insurance requirements in the Kent Valley. Associated work includes removal and relocation of existing utilities within the new levee footprint, as well as removal of

all trees and vegetation within the same footprint. Disturbed areas will be hydroseeded and offsite tree mitigation will occur upstream on the Green River at South 261st Street and 80th Avenue South. Construction of the first phase, relocation of the Russell Road/James Street intersection is anticipated to occur in the summer of 2012. Subsequent phases will be completed by December 2015.

Another Top Ranking for Joint Replacement With more than 8000 joint replacement surgeries performed, Washington’s first joint center is also the state’s best, according to HealthGrades® for 2010, 2011 and 2012—and has received its Five-Star Rating in Joint Replacement for nine consecutive years.

2010 2011

2012

An acclaimed model for best practices and recently celebrating our 11th anniversary, The Joint Center is led by nationally recognized surgeons in procedures, implant design and research, along with our team of specialized joint replacement nurses and therapists. State-of-the-art surgical techniques and implant selection, brand new facilities on a dedicated floor in our South Tower, attentive care and personalized therapy, private rooms and the success of nearly 1300 surgeries performed just last year, make The Joint Center your top choice for joint replacement. For more information, to obtain a physician referral or to attend a FREE joint replacement seminar, please visit us at valleymed.org/joint or call us at 425.656.4636. valleymed.org/joint
