Valley Medical board hires law firm

Kent School District might close two schools

BY DENNIS BOX

Potential closing brings out strong reaction from parents

dbox@kentreporter.com

The Valley Medical Center Board of Commissioners met for the first time in 2012 on Jan. 16 and there were some clear changes and some things looked very similar. Dr. Paul Joos, elected in November after PUBLIC defeating Mary Alice Heuschel, was chosen as the president of the board. Commissioner Anthony Hemstad will be the vice president and Commissioner Sue Bowman will serve as secretary. Once the officers were selected, the board then approved hiring the Issaquah law firm Kenyon Disend to represent the commission. The resolution passed on a

Three longtime officers to retire BY STEVE HUNTER shunter@kentreporter.com

When Kent Police officers Brian Jones, Mike Painter and Wayne Himple each hang up their blue uniforms for the final time over the next month, they will take away 97 years of experience from the department. Jones spent 35 years in Kent, Painter 32 and Himple 30. They each served in a variety of roles over three decades. Painter’s final duties are as an assistant chief, Jones as a detective sergeant and Himple as a detective. “We have three outstanding employees we hate to see walk out the door because of the great contri-

The Kent School District is considering closing Jenkins Creek and Cedar Valley elementary schools for the 2012-2013 school year. The decision follows a Nov. 9, 2011, school board meeting where the members decided to look at closing schools in lieu of impending budget cuts. The board will receive written closure analysis from staff and then make a final decision on whether to proceed with the closure process or not during a meeting Feb. 22. “Over the last three years, the

butions they made,” said Kent Police Chief Ken Thomas, a 23-year department veteran named chief one year ago. “But they are all well-deserved retirements.” Other officers will receive promotions to replace the three. “The department will recover,” Painter said. “We’ve always recovered when people left that had been here a long time.” But the trio takes a ton of leadership and experience with them. “It’s a lot of years to see go out the door,” Painter said. “We think we’ve done a pretty good job of succession planning trying to bring people along. But I don’t know how you reconcile almost 100 years of experience very easily.”

BRIAN JONES Jones, 62, joined the department in 1977 when it had 25 officers to serve a city of approximately

Kent man among 20 busted by DEA for drug trafficking crimes BY STEVE HUNTER shunter@kentreporter.com

A 36-year-old Kent man was among 20 people arrested and charged for drug trafficking Jan. 25 as part of coordinated raids by the Drug Enforcement Administration and local law enforcement agencies in the Seattle and San Francisco Bay area. The arrests followed a lengthy investigation into a cocaine, meth and heroin trafficking ring that stretched from San Francisco to Vancouver, British Columbia,

A second resolution was presented to hire Michael Mathias as an interim hospital superintendent. Currently the position is filled by Jeannine Grinnell. The board bylaws state it takes two meetings to pass the resolution to hire Mathias. “This is no aspersion whatsoever on Jeannine Grinnell, who is very professional and has done an excellent job on finances,� Hemstad said. “The idea is we may need a wider array of staff support in the interim period on a wide variety of non-financial issues.� Mathias is an economist and served as the Maple Valley assistant city man-

The investigation, which utilized courtauthorized wire taps, revealed how the conspirators allegedly brought multi-kilo loads of cocaine, heroin and methamphet-

25,000 over about 10 square miles. Now the city has 130 officers who serve a population of 118,200 over about 30 square miles. “There has been a lot of growth and change and the majority of it has been positive,” said Jones, who has worked under six chiefs. “Clearly the goal is to serve the community and I think we do a pretty good job of that. It’s been a very rewarding career.” Jones received two lifesaving awards from the department. In 2007, he responded to a 911 call of a 6-month-old baby that had been injured in an alleged abuse case. Jones provided cardiopulmonary resuscitation to save the baby’s life. In 2006, while working at the scene of a traffic accident, Jones spotted an elderly man in a passing car suffering a heart attack and helped save the man’s life. “I’ll miss all of it,” Jones said. “The activity, the camaraderie of the officers and staff here. And the ability to help the public and the citizens. Because when they call us, they need or want something and it’s our duty and obligation to help them. “We respond the best we can, sometimes better than others, but always having the goal that our job is to help citizens the best we can. That is a guiding principle police officers should have and one I’ve had the entire time I’ve been here.” Jones was born in New Zealand and grew up in Scotland. He moved in 1966 to Washington at age 16 with his single mother. He worked five years as a firefighter for Fire District 40 in Renton and four years as an operations coordinator for King County Medic One, which provides emergency medical services. During his time with the county, Jones also worked as a deputy reserve with the King County Sheriff ’s Office and served as a paramedic for the county SWAT team. That introduction to law enforcement led Jones to join the Kent Police. Jones worked much of his career as a traffic sergeant and spent 15 years riding a patrol motorcycle. He also oversaw the Kent SWAT team before the city joined a regional squad. “He ran a very tight ship,” Thomas said of Jones. “He was in charge of the traffic unit for several years. Brian was a really great contributor to our department and for members of the squads he supervised. He developed officers and got the most out of them.” Few officers are as organized as Jones. “He was always known as the guy who was completely squared away.” Thomas said. “His equipment was in order along with his units he was in charge of, everything had its place and was operationally ready.” Jones, who retires in March, decided several years ago to walk away after 35 years with the department. Jones, who is married with

three grown sons, will travel and work on his property in the Enumclaw foothills. “It was time,” he said. “My personal goal was to work 35 years and I met that goal. It’s time to move on.”

MIKE PAINTER Painter, 51, decided to go into law enforcement in part because his father worked as a Port of Seattle Police officer. Since joining Kent in 1980, Painter has worked a variety of jobs. He especially enjoyed his time as a field training officer, a K-9 officer and detective. “The officers that I had a hand in shaping all have been highly successful,” Painter said. Painter also spent two years in 1996-98 as commander at the police training academy in Burien. “I love being a police officer,” Painter said as he reflected on his long career. “I love the work, the people. Everybody misses the people - the people inside and outside the department. The community has been absolutely terrific. This has been a first-class organization to work for.” Painter said Kent Police strive to be a wellrespected department. “The citizens of Kent are very lucky to have this police department,” he said. “The hard work, the creative and contemporary policing strategies that we employ. And we have tried to not only produce high-quality work, but to inspire compassion with our officers and how they treat people. And that does not exist across the country not even across the region.” One of the work highlights for Painter came with the K-9 unit in the late 1980s. He helped track a man who broke into an Auburn apartment while the husband and wife were asleep. The man shot the wife in the head (she survived). “We did a dog track and ended up catching the guy about three-quarters of a mile away in some very dense brush,” Painter said. There also are horrendous cases Painter cannot shake from his mind. “I was not directly involved in the case but it continues to haunt me in ways,” Painter said. “It’s the tragic case up on the East Hill where the two children starved to death. It was a horrible case and I know it had a profound effect on the detectives and officers that handled it.” Kent Police found two babies dead in the apartment in November 2004. The mother, Marie Robinson, received a 34-year prison sentence for two counts of first-degree manslaughter. Painter, of Federal Way, leaves Kent this week to start a new job as director of professional services for the Lacey-based Washington Association of Sheriffs and Police Chiefs. Thomas said Painter supervised him for many years and greatly influenced his career.

“He worked a lot with me to help me develop,” Thomas said. “I have told him I attribute a lot of my personal success and believe a significant reason why I am sitting in the police chief’s chair today is because of the assistance and mentor-ship he has provided to me over the years. I’m very grateful to Mike and the contributions he has made to our organization, the city and to me.” Painter said he will miss Kent. “There have been very few if any days that I woke up and did not want to go to work,” Painter said. “It’s been a tremendous ride.”

WAYNE HIMPLE Himple, 53, has worked 17 of his 30 years as a detective. Raised in Granite Falls, he decided to become a police officer after he served three years in the Army with the Military Police. He joined Kent in 1982 after 18 months with the Port of Seattle Police. Not too far into his career, Himple got a chance to work an unsolved rape, burglary and robbery case. He helped solve it when a fingerprint on an apartment window pane led to the suspect. “That was my first significant case and kind of propelled my career into the detective unit and major crimes,” he said. Changes in technology over the years gave Himple more ways to close cases. “There is so much information just on a cellphone itself that can be evidence to what you’re investigating,” Himple said. “There’s more of a technological-minded emphasis to have technology help us solve the crime.” DNA evidence turned out to be a major help for Himple and all detectives. In fact, Himple worked a murder case in the late 1980s that was solved after he sent evidence to the FBI lab in Washington, D.C., to test for DNA because the State Crime Lab at that time did not have the equipment to test for DNA.

Visit

“Those kind of scientific breakthroughs have been tremendous in helping us to solve crimes,” he said. Himple was part of the investigative team that solved the 2001 shooting death of Des Moines Police officer Steven Underwood. He also led the team that investigated the murder of Federal Way Police officer Patrick Marr in 2003. Other murder cases Himple worked on included the stomping death of a homeless woman in the 1990s in South Kent and a triple murder in 2003 when three men were found dead in a vehicle along the West Valley Highway. “A pretty significant part of my life has been devoted toward solving or participating in some pretty heinous crimes and violent murders,” Himple said. “I’m looking forward to other challenges in life.” Thomas said the department definitely benefitted from Himple’s detective skills. “He is an absolute top-notch investigator with outstanding credibility and very thorough,” Thomas said. “We could not have asked for or gotten any better performance as far as investigations of very difficult and very serious cases as what we got out of Wayne.” Himple, of Lake Tapps, plans to travel with his wife. He wants to start a home business of sharpening knives and beauty shears. The couple might even move to Arizona for the warmer weather. “After doing 30 years of this job you get a little tired day in and day out dealing with the types of criminals we’re dealing with and the crimes,” he said. “One day you wake up and say ‘I’ve had enough.’ It’s time to do something else. “But I’ve had a great 30 years. It’s been a very rewarding job. I’ve worked on some very heinous murder cases but was a big part of solving those crimes and making sure justice was done.”

Man struggles with officers outside bar

BY STEVE HUNTER shunter@kentreporter.com

Kent Police arrested a man for investigation of DUI, resisting arrest, harassment and possession of drug paraphernalia after an incident outside of the Central Avenue Pub. A 911 call came in at about 11:29 p.m. Jan. 24 that a man was threatening a woman near the pub in the 1400 block of South Central Avenue, according to the

police report. When officers arrived, a woman told them that the boyfriend of her girlfriend was reportedly drunk and threatened to go to his car to get a gun and shoot them. As officers talked with the woman, a car came through the parking lot and the woman identified the driver as the boyfriend of her girlfriend. After the car stopped in the lot, officers ordered the man out of the car. The man then allegedly reached his right





hand under the center portion of the front seat. The officer feared that the man might have a gun, so the officer pulled out his handgun and yelled for the driver to show his hands. Eventually, the driver stepped out of the vehicle with his hands up. The driver then reportedly resisted the two officers as they tried to handcuff him. The officers noted the man smelled of intoxicants and had slurred speech. When police searched the man, they allegedly found a metal pipe, a pocket knife and a single bullet. They did not find a gun. The man again started to struggle with the officers so they put him on the ground and called for additional units. One officer kneeled across the man’s legs and another one kneeled on his neck to keep him on the ground. The girlfriend of the man told officers they had dated for about a year and that the man moved into her Renton home. She had asked him to move out but he refused to leave. When officers took fingerprints of the man, they discovered he had an FBI number that included a felony burglary in Nevada, a drug possession in Nevada and seven arrests in Washington. He also has been known to use an alias.

ASSAULT

Officers arrested a man for investigation of fourth-degree assault and obstructing an officer after he allegedly pulled his girlfriend’s hair and later struggled with police as they handcuffed him. Police responded at about 9:50 p.m. Jan. 25 to the Fred Meyer store in the 10200 block of Southeast 240th Street after a 911 hangup call, according to the police report. An officer saw a man and woman arguing in the parking lot. The officer told the two to stop walking. The woman halted, but the man kept walking and took an aggressive stance. When the officer told the man to get to his knees, the man responded, “I’m not going to do that.� The officer then grabbed the man’s arm and took him to the ground as he waited for more officers. As the officer straddled the man, the man bucked up and threatened to hurt the officer. Because the man continued to struggle, the officer punched him once and then twice more until the man stopped fighting. Other officers then arrived to help take the man into custody. The girlfriend told police she and her boyfriend were on the edge of breaking up. She said during their argument she pushed [ more BLOTTER page 5 ]

STOLEN PROPERTY

Police arrested a man for investigation of two counts of third-degree possession of stolen property after he reportedly tried to sell stolen iPhones at about 2:13 p.m. Jan. 24 at a parking lot in the 13100 block of Southeast Kent Kangley Road. A man told officers he had replied to a craigslist ad for the phone the previous day and bought it for $500 from a man only to find out later when he went to a phone store to activate the phone that it had been reported stolen, according to the police report. The man decided to try to buy another phone from the man, who agreed to meet at the same place for a second sale on a second date. When the two met, the man wanting to buy the

The man had multiple warrants for his arrest, although the report did not indicate what the warrants were for. A search of the man turned up 14 pills in a plastic bag that appeared to be Vicodin.

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and I would like to offer some very good advice for men, because I can claim years of experience as the superhero of Valentine’s Day — oh yeah. Of all the excruciating holidays during the next 11 months of this year, Valentine’s Day is by far the most dangerous. Peril and pestilence lurk at every turn.

In support of Annexation Sales Tax Credit for the city of Kent Editor’s note: This letter was written to state senators Ed Murray and Joe Zarelli and state representatives Ross Hunter and Gary Alexander. On behalf of the Kent Chamber of Commerce, I am writing to request your support to retain the Annexation Sales Tax Credit, as it currently exists. Kent has taken advantage of this credit to annex the Panther Lake annexation area, and its 25,000 residents into the city. Our city made the difficult decision during a tough economy to annex based on policies passed in Olympia designed to improve the safety, health, and welfare of residents living in urban unincorporated areas. By becoming city residents, people have seen better police response times as well as other critical services. However, annexation is an expensive undertaking. In

Kent’s case, the annexation area does not pay for itself; the credit only closes the gap, it does not eliminate it. Despite this financial reality, Kent has worked hard to ensure they have the resources necessary to meet safety goals for all their residents. Part of this planning includes factoring in the state’s Annexation Sales Tax Credit. This 10-year credit was integral in their decision to move forward. Without the credit, Kent would not have moved forward with annexation. HB 2146 would cut the Annexation Sales Tax Credit by 10 percent ($342,672) for each year of the 10-year credit. We understand the difficult decision we all must make to address the state’s budget deficit. Like our member businesses, our city has also undertaken many cuts and efficiencies to make ends meet. Annexation is about better safety and service. While both are important, annexation has also shown to improve educational services, create jobs and provide better vital infrastructure; all beneficial outcomes for individuals, families and employers alike. The Kent Chamber of Commerce urges you to keep your promise to the cities of Washington who made annexations, and respectfully request you push for the full credit as budget negotiations move forward.

Creating your very own backyard vineyard he first week of February is when early bloomers start to show off. Forsythia is budding and crocus are popping up. Still have fallen branches and broken limbs from the big ice storm? This is the week to remember when the bough breaks the petals will fall. Even bare, leafless and unattached branches from easy-to-force trees and shrubs like magnolia, peach, plum and cherry can be coaxed into blooming before they become kindling. Just cut thin, whip-like stems from the broken branches of flowering trees and shrubs and bring them indoors, set into a vase of warm water. Wait a few weeks and you’ll force spring to blossom early. Early spring is also the beginning of the season for festivals and home and garden shows. Enumclaw has its own festival as we celebrate the vine and all that is sweet at the Enumclaw Wine and Chocolate Festival Friday and Saturday. So the question that needs to be answered: can you grow your own wine and chocolate in western Washington? The answer is yes, but only if you choose the right plants for the right place. If you can’t make it to the Enumclaw Wine and Chocolate Festival this weekend, here’s how you can become your own vintner even if you live in the cool summer areas of western Washington.

our climate. This jewel of a nursery is located near Morton, Wash., so they understand our cool, rainy summers. A good grape to start with: Regent Grape on it’s own root stalk. This grape comes from Germany where it is used to make a rich, red wine for the organic wine industry. This means Regent grapes are disease resistant as organic growers will not be able to use fungicides.

2. CHOOSE A SITE WITH FULL SUN AND LOTS OF HEAT. A sunny slope with good drainage is ideal. In western Washington this would be a south or west-facing spot close to a brick or stone wall or a building that will reflect heat back onto the grapes.

3. IMPROVE THE SOIL. Grapes love our slightly acid soil but need fertilizing to get them off to a good start each spring. Add manure and compost to the planting site and work this well into the soil before you add your new vines.

4. LEARN HOW TO PRUNE AND TRAIN YOUR GRAPE VINES.

BE SAFE Many broken branches are difficult to reach even with a ladder. Use good judgment before deciding whether to risk your life or to call a tree service that is properly trained and equipped. If properly trimmed, many ornamental trees can be renovated, but it will take a few years – not months. It may be prudent to hire a professional to perform careful pruning. He or she will be diligent in looking for buds and twigs that will begin to fill in voids with future growth. Trees crowns that are out of balance because of the loss of branches can be gently trimmed to Dennis Tompkins begin to reshape the canopies.

The devastation from last week’s storm exceeded that of the 1996 ice and snow event. Deciduous trees were impacted much more although most conifer species fared somewhat better than 18 years ago. During the cleanup, homeowners are faced with a number of questions of how to treat damaged landscape trees. The following tips will help when deciding whether to remove or attempt to salvage valuable trees.

CUT Cut a damaged branch below a break and where a split or crack may be present In some instances, removal of the entire

5. START MAKING WINE. There is an art to when to harvest, how to crush and how to rest or ferment the grapes with many more details about how to age, store and bottle your home brew. You’ll have three to four years to gather information before your first harvest from the vines you plant this spring. Growing grapes for wine is an investment in time and a labor of love. Get inspired and then get growing. So what about chocolate? Truth is you cannot grow real chocolate or cocoa plants here in Washington – but that shouldn’t stop anyone from having a chocolate garden full of dark, rich foliage colors, sweet chocolate scents and velvety textures. The best dark foliage plants for a chocolate garden are huecheras, Black Lace elderberry, claret-colored smoke trees and rich black mondo grass. There are also chocolate-scented cosmos and geraniums. You might also want to enjoy a wine and chocolate garden the easy way: Add some seating in the shade and make this the spot for tasting chocolate, sipping wine and enjoying the garden.

Learn about growing wine grapes and starting a chocolate garden at the Enumclaw Wine and Chocolate Festival this week. Marianne Binetti will speak at 4:30 p.m. Friday and 2 p.m. Saturday. Friday’s topic will be “Grow your own wine� and Saturday’s talk will be on “Chocolate Gardening.�

Good discipline makes for well-behaved vines. The first year you will need to cut back the young vines so only two buds are left. Select just one cane to grow up the stake during year one. After that, choose a staking and support

branch may be wise. Many of the ends of cut off branches will begin to develop water sprouts next spring. Certain species such as flowering plums are prolific sprouters. Many should be removed while others can be selected to help fill in voids. Such sprout management should be exercised for a few years. Realistically, few homeowners will do so and decisions to remove unsightly trees may eventually be necessary.

WATCH OUT A hazard assessment may be prudent where damage has occurred to a large tree. An arborist can determine whether a tree can be safely left or whether the risks are too great to attempt to salvage a prized tree.

Seniors looking for a safe and effective form of exercise might want to check out “tai chi� classes performed under the guidance of a teacher. “Tai chi chuan� is the full name of a form of exercise that began as a martial art in China. It consists of slow, balanced, lowimpact movements that combine the elements of a workout, meditation, and dance. It involves the performance of dozens of postures and gestures that are derived from animal movements, which are somewhat akin to slowmotion karate or swimming in the air. To do the postures correctly, it is necessary to learn controlled breathing, concentration, muscle control, and relaxation, which provide as much benefit to the heart as aerobic exercise. PARKSIDE RETIREMENT COMMUNITY realizes the importance of exercise when it comes to our senior residents. We provide a wide range of activity options aimed at helping our seniors achieve their “personal best�. To learn more about our unique senior community, reach us today at (253) 9391332. We will schedule an initial meeting and tour of our facility at 2902 I Street, N.E. We have been locally owned and operated since 1972. Our seniors are our #1 priority! P.S. Tai chi improves balance and coordination, provides arthritis relief, improves sleep, helps control diabetes, and promotes overall fitness.

They have a Facebook page and a website, which can be found at http://www. savecedarvalley.com/. “Because we are the most diverse and highest poverty school in Covington, our school serves as a site for unique opportunities,� Harjehausen said. “It is possible to cost effectively target our kids with much needed services by the community that have already started,

such as Century 21 grant and the kindergarten readiness camp run with our kindergarten teachers’ volunteer time every summer. I fear that if our kids are scattered, they will lose these invaluable support services�. Karen Evans, the operations manager for Mountainview Vineyard Christian Fellowship, a church that partners with Cedar Valley Elementary also expressed concern over the potential closure of Cedar Valley. “I am really disappointed in the school district,� Evans said. “As an accountant by profession, I understand the need for budgets and cost savings, but we are very concerned that this decision has essentially been made, unfortunately without all of the facts, and it seems like the school district is just going through [ more CLOSE page 13 ]

the motions to demonstrate due diligence.� She added the reasoning behind Mountain Vineyard’s support of Cedar Valley. “I understand that Cedar Valley has been a low performing school for many years, which is why our church made the decision to partner with Cedar Valley to see if we could make a difference in the lives of the children, staff, and families of Cedar Valley and the Timberlane Community,� Evans said. “Partnerships like ours provide support that does not show up in the district’s numbers and I just can’t believe they are going to throw that all away so casually.�

Evans suggests changing school boundaries within the district to address the low enrollment factor of Cedar Valley and relieve overcrowding in other Kent Schools. “By closing Cedar Valley and moving the kids to other schools in the district, the district is making a low performing school simply disappear,� Evans said. “Yet, unfortunately, those same kids are now in various schools without the necessary support structure to succeed.� The board will make the final decision on the schools during a March 28 meeting. If they decide to shut down the two schools, public hearings will be scheduled for public input on the closures.

Kentlake wins again at All-City meet

The Kentlake High School gymnasts took home the AllCity Championship for the sixth year in a row. Behind the usual standout performances by Katie Steckler, Lizzy Reichlinger and Melissa Alberts, the Falcons soared to a season high 161.8 points en route to putting away Kentridge, Kentwood and Kent-Meridian in a fourteam meet at Kentwood High Jan. 28. For the all-around Steckler took first place, Reichlinger got second, Alberts took sixth and Brenna Bickel came in seventh place. “We have a great group of girls this year,� said Coach Marla Boyd, after their last meet. The girls went over their goal of a 160 team score by the end of the regular season to qualify into the district competition as a team. “All these girls work hard and have great attitudes,� Boyd

said.� They are continuously working on improving their level of difficulty on all events.� Kentwood took second place with a score of 144, KentMeridian came in third with a scored of 140 and Kentridge gymnasts received an overall score of 136. “The meet was a great experience for our team, we came together and did a great job,� said Ann Diaz, Kentwood coach. “Placing second was a surprise, but a good one. We had some minor injuries that kept us from doing our best, but they did great. I am very proud of the girls on the Kentwood team; they are a great bunch of girls.� Kent-Meridian High School’s coach Rachel Hopkins said she was proud of how far her girls had come since the first meet. “In our previous meets our girls were scoring in the low 100s and it was really hard for them,� Hopkins said. “This was our first meet with almost our entire team competing so, it was fun to see what we could do. We are looking forward to sub districts and what we can do there.�

This action is regarding the foreclosure of real property local improvement district assessments. David A. Galazin, Assistant City Attorney, City of Kent, Plaintiff’s Attorney. 220 4th Avenue South Kent, King County, Washington. Published in the Kent Reporter on Decmeber 30, 2011, January 6, 13, 20, 27 and February 3, 2012. #566189 Notice to owners of certain properties lying within the Green River Valley in the Cities of Kent, Tukwila and Renton and unincorporated King County: Proposed changes to Flood Insurance Rate Maps. The City of Kent is applying for Conditional Letters of Map Revision (CLOMRs) from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (DHS-FEMA) to revise multiple Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) affecting the Cities of Kent, Tukwila and Renton and unincorporated King County along the Green River. The FIRM panels affected include: 53033C0959K, 53033C0967K, 53033C0969K, 53033C0976K, 53033C0978K, 53033C0979K, 53033C0986K, 53033C0988K, and 53033C1251K. Background: It is expected that FEMA will shortly issue new flood maps for the Green River Valley that will revise substantial areas of land subject to a 1% annual chance of flooding in any given year (the “100-year floodplain�). These areas will be depicted on the FIRMs, which are used to determine flood insu-

rance rates and to help the community with floodplain management. The extents of flooding that will be mapped are largely based on assumptions regarding the existing Green River levee system, which is not currently recognized (accredited) by FEMA as able to withstand a 1% annual chance flood. Project Proposal: The City of Kent is pursuing accreditation of the entire east bank Green River levee system from River Mile (RM) 26.2 in the City of Kent to RM 14.3 (S. 180th Street) in the City of Tukwila. Due to the size and complexity of the project, the accreditation is being pursued in phases on six individual levee segments. The City of Kent is applying for accreditation for each levee segment independently via a CLOMR. As each levee segment becomes accredited the areas of flooding as shown on the FIRMs will be changed. The combined effects of the entire levee system being accredited will result in large reductions in the 1% annual chance flood hazard area. Effects on FIRMs: Accreditation of each individual levee segment will result in changes to the FIRMs in the areas impacted by that segment’s accreditation. Changes are limited to the floodplain on the right bank (when looking downstream along the river) of the Green River between RM 26.2 and 10.8. The shaded area north and east of the Green River on the map depicts this. In general, the following changes will occur due to the proposed projects: 1) The overbank portion of the floodway shall be revised between RM 17.0 and 14.3 of the Green River. As a result of the floodway revision the floodway shall be narrowed by a

maximum of 4000 feet and a total of approximately 400 acres of overbank floodway will be removed. 2) Decreases in the 1% annual chance water surface elevations up to 7 feet will occur. As a result, approximately 5000 acres will change from (1) Zone AE (Areas of flooding with depths greater than 1-foot) or shaded Zone X (Areas of flooding with depths less than 1-foot) to Zone D (areas protected by levee with residual undetermined flood risk), (2) Zone X to Zone D, or (3) remain Zone AE with reduced 1% annual chance water surface elevations. 3) Increases in the 1% annual chance water surface elevations up to 3 feet will occur in several publicly owned detention ponds near S. 259th St. and SR516, and on public and private lands in and around Van Doren’s Landing Park on Russell Road. In the Van Doren’s Landing area, the higher 1% annual chance water surface elevation will result in approximately 12 acres of Zone AE and 4 acres of shaded Zone X floodplain, a change from the current 1 acre of Zone AE and 5 acres of shaded Zone X. These areas of increased flood depths are primarily due to relocation of the levee away from the river bank for stability purposes. Property owners are reminded there will always be flood risk within the Green River Valley whether or not an area is protected by an accredited levee. Residual flood risks include risk of levee failure (no levee is completely fail-safe), local flooding due to tributary creeks, direct rainfall, and limitations of the stormwater collection system. FIRMs do not show all potential

flood risks from these sources. Flood hazard areas in the Green River Valley, which are based on flooding from local drainages, will remain on the FIRMs. Availability of Technical Information: The CLOMR applications, technical information, proposed revisions to the FIRMS and contact information may be reviewed in person at the City of Kent Public Works Department, 400 W. Gowe, Kent, WA, 98032 between the hours of 8:00am and 5:00pm weekdays. You may also call Jim Storment at the City of Kent Engineering Dept. at 253-856-5550.

Kentlake struggled the next night, however, against Mount Rainier. Despite being down by nine points going into the third quarter to the Rams, the Falcons couldn’t overcome turnovers and a more balanced offensive attack and lost at home Jan. 28, 81-62.

In the first meeting of the season, Kentlake upset Mount Rainier, giving the Rams their first league loss of the year in December.

GIRLS HOOPS: Kentlake 51, KentMeridian 29: The Falcons avenged their first loss in school history to the Royals earlier in the season with a decisive victory at the Les Scwhab Shootout at ShoWare. Kentlake held Kent-Meridian to just two points in the first quarter and single digit scoring in the third and fourth quarters. Stephanie Luce and Alyssa Simonson led the Falcons with 16 and 10 points respectively. Kentlake took advantage of Luce’s height advantage, she’s 6-foot-4, as she both crashed the glass as well as took a number of passes in the low post for easy lay-ins. That success didn’t translate against Mount Rainier the next night, though, as the Rams beat up the Falcons 67-37 thanks to 23 points from Brittany McPhee and 20 from Kiana Gandy.

Luce had 20 points against Mount Rainier while Simonson added 11. Kentwood 54, Kentridge 32: Kentwood handled Kentridge easily and improved to 9-3 in league with the win, staying solidly in third place in the division behind Mount Rainier, which is undefeated in SPSL North play and Auburn Riverside, which has one league loss. Balanced scoring and stingy defense were the

keys for the Conks, who got at least two points from everyone who stepped on the floor against the Chargers, with Maddison Rankin leading the squad with 16 points while Sarah Toeaina brought in 11. Kentwood took on Mount Rainier Tuesday night, Thomas Jefferson Wednesday, then finishes the season with KentMeridian on Saturday and Auburn Riverside on Monday, Feb. 6.
