Valley Medical board hires law firm

Opening date set for Fred Meyer store

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 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 3-2 vote with Hemstad, Dr. Aaron Heide and Joos voting yes while Bowman and Carolyn Parnell were in dissent. A second resolution was

A more than decade-long wait for Fred Meyer in Maple Valley will soon come to an end. “It’s going to open on May 24, which is earlier than we originally anticipated,” said Fred Meyer spokeswoman Melinda Merrill in a phone interview. “We’re really excited about that.” Fred Meyer will be the anchor store in the Maple Valley Town Square development under construction in Four Corners. Its footprint will be 187,000 square feet, Merrill said, and cost $30 million to build. Maple Valley Town Square is located on the northeast corner of state Route 169 and Kent Kangley Road. It’s been quite a journey for Fred Meyer, the city of Maple Valley and Powell Development,

Just a few months after arriving in the United States from Peru at the tender age of 18 Gino Rivera’s father told him to get a job. It would change his life and take him to Maple Valley twice. The second time led him to pursue opening a restaurant in Four Corners in the location previously occupied for some three decades by Shakey’s Pizza.

Rivera started his culinary journey making salads at Filibertos Cucina Italia in Burien. He didn’t speak English yet, but, as he learned the restaurant business he learned the language as well. It also led to his career path in life. “I started moving up,” Rivera said. “And I decided this is what I wanted to do.” Later he got a job working at Giancarlo’s in Federal Way. At

the time, he was living in Maple Valley, which was a much smaller town 17 years ago. His experience here, however, left an indelible mark. He helped the owner of Giancarlo’s open a second location called Verrazano’s in Federal Way. That’s where he met his wife, Kelly, who has also worked in restaurants her entire adult life and then some. Rivera ran Verrazano’s for several years in the late 1990s before moving on to an opportunity in Milton with another restaurant owner where “maybe I could take it to another level.”

Property Rights for Trade How TDRs may be used in the Donut Hole BY TJ MARTINELL tmartinell@maplevalleyreporter.com

Transfer of development rights are likely to be a part of future growth in Maple Valley. While TDRs have not been used in the past decade, when Maple Valley’s population increased by 59 percent, a similar King County program called the 4-to-1 program was used during the development of the 150 acre Maple Ridge Highlands in the 1990s. According to Maple Valley Community Development Director Ty Peterson, the development acted as a receiving site by transferring the density from the surroundings rural areas, where either conservation easements were placed on the property or the titles were dedicated to King County. As a result, Peterson stated, roughly 500 acres of land around the Highlands development have been preserved. The Highlands development was ultimately annexed into the city of Maple Valley in 2009. HOW THE CITY AND COUNTY PROGRAMS DIFFER In September of last year, Maple Valley adopted its own TDR program as a part of the Regional Transfer of Development Rights Program, which deals exclusively with sending and receiving sites within their own city limits. According to King County TDR Director Darren Greve, the difference between a county and city program is that, “a county program provides for development right transfers from rural sending sites

into unincorporated urban was allowed to build six area and incorporated city units per acre. receiving sites,� while “a city Greve explained that TDR program is focused on there are two different types in-city sending and receivof zoning densities. One is ing sites to protect in-city the base density which for open space and historic urban county-controlled buildings etc.� areas is four units per acre. “However, there is a Then there is maximum growing number of cities density which in King that have both County is six units in-city TDR proper acre.

The base density was that don’t want rural TDRs four units per one acre, but brought in to increase after transferring several density. So, there’s ongoing dozens of TDRs, YarrowBay tension. Most cities will

come up with their own program and zone property on how they want to develop. There’s a difference between the practice and the concept, so, it’s kind of a confusing process. But there are times when it comes together.� THE DONUT HOLE One example of this is the Donut Hole, a 156-acre property owned by King County that Maple Valley is attempting to annex into the city limits. Because the land is owned by King County it falls within the jurisdiction of the county’s TDR program. The county originally desired the eventual developer of the site to use TDRs as a way to reach the required base density of four units per acre, according to Greve. “The County’s potential sale of the Summit Place property included an open space component based on this general four to one (unit per acre) approach,� he wrote. “And TDR was just a part of the open space component.� The county also wanted the TDRs to be purchased from rural landowners in King County or from its TDR bank. A TDR bank works similar to a regular bank by holding TDR certificates for the county until a developer is willing to buy them. The county uses the bank to buy the TDRs up front from willing private landowners and then attempts to sell them. According to Greve, 95 percent of all TDR sales within the King County program are private. However, according to Peterson, the city initially

opposed the idea due to the lack of mutual gain. “Quite frankly, the city didn’t see any benefit in the use of TDRs on the property that were purchased from King County or the King County Bank,â€? Peterson said. “The county was insisting that it be allowed.â€? Eventually, Peterson stated, the city and county were able to come up with a compromise. The city would allow 200 additional housing units to be built if the necessary TDRs were purchased, but the TDRs would have to come from privately owned rural properties located within five miles of Maple Valley. Currently the zoning would allow for 1,240 units without the use of TDRs. “At least it can be argued that there is some relationship benefit preserving land within five miles of the city,â€? Peterson explained. “It doesn’t really help if we have to take density while areas outside of Woodinville are being preserved.â€? Greve further explained the agreement on TDRs regarding the Donut Hole. “The developer’s purchase of 200 TDRs from rural lands‌would help fulfill the four to one offset of permanently protecting other rural lands once the Summit Place property was changed from urban to rural uses,â€? Greve wrote. “The five mile from city limits boundary was put in place to make sure the TDR related open space benefits remain close to city of Maple Valley.â€? FINDING A FEW GOOD SENDING SITES The main challenge for using TDRs, however, will be finding property owners willing to sell them. For ex-

ample, in 2006, the average King County TDR sold for $30,000. Now, however, the average one sells for around $15,000. “There haven’t been a whole financial market for these rights,� Peterson said. “People can hardly develop property as it is, let alone buy development rights. There are lots of sites that qualify. It’s just that there haven’t been property owners who have had their sites certified.� Additionally, cities like Maple Valley, which grew exponentially for two decades, are already struggling to provide infrastructure for the current population and aren’t keen on adding more density. “Conceptional it’s really good,� Peterson said. “But it struggles because one, cities are having a hard time. It’s been difficult to approach cities that are already struggling with addressing the impact of growth and say, ‘Let’s take some of the county’s growth, too.’� Before, the city considered using city-owned Lake Wilderness Golf Course as a sending site, an option which is still viable. The idea was first conceived in 2006 when YarrowBay expressed interest in purchasing the Lake Wilderness Golf Course and developing the Donut Hole, Ross explained. According to a Reporter article dated July 30, 2010, YarrowBay offered the city the chance to purchase it “with the idea the city would want to preserve it rather than see houses built.� “The city said ‘We recognize there might be benefit to preservation in perpetuity the golf course [ more TDR page 11 ]

[ VALLEY from page 1] 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 manager in 2007 when Hemstad was city manager.

LEGAL COUNSEL Prior to the vote hiring the Kenyon Disend law firm Hemstad stated, “for a long time we’ve needed legal counsel that reports directly to the board of commissioners, not through other staff. That gives us independent counsel.� Hemstad described Kenyon Disend as the “best municipal law firm in Washington state. They provide counsel to many different public institutions.�

[ STORE from page 1] which has worked with the company and city officials to bring Maple Valley Town Square to life. Until 2009, the city limited retail stores to 60,000 square feet, which eliminated most big box type businesses. Early in 2009 the Maple Valley City Council passed an ordinance that would allow for footprints of up to 100,000 square and over that with conditions. Peter Powell, president of Powell Development, has been working with John

Morris and his family. Morris owns the property and runs TRM Wood Products from the site. TRM recently completed work on its new building which has been moved east on the property toward Summit-Landsburg Road. At a groundbreaking for Town Square in April 2011, Powell told spectators that it had been a long process, nearly seven years at that point to put in a Fred Meyer that he referred to as a “lifestyle center.� Merrill said the store

Bowman questioned the reason for hiring an attorney to represent the board stating, “We have legal counsel – Mr. (David) Smith.â€? Hemstad countered stating, “Yes and he reports through the CEO (Rich Roodman). There have been times when we’ve needed counsel looking after the interests of the public more than the administration. (Kenyon Disend) would not be part of the bonus program for instance, which potentially could influence the type of advice we get.â€? Parnell said she agreed with Bowman. “We have legal counsel. He’s cheap, his interests are not only of the hospital but the public and he has served us well. Any questions have been answered. As far as I’m concerned he is just fine. He’s here, he knows all about the hospital and how it runs.â€? Heide stated he was supporting the resolution. “I was threatened with a lawsuit if I were to continue speaking out about my beliefs for how this place should be run‌. I approached David Smith with the issue and he said, ‘Because of my bias I cannot discuss this with you,’ and he handed it off to a different attorney‌. I think we need independent counsel‌ based on this one example. He cannot represent us on an external lawsuit. We really truly need independent counsel.â€? Bowman questioned how the firm would be paid, since it was not added to the 2012 budget.

“Where are you going to get the money to pay for legal counsel?â€? Bowman asked. Hemstad said, “We are an elected body and we have statutory ability. We can easily amend out budget.â€? Bowman stated, “Any extra money has to come from the approval of the alliance board‌. We can’t approve this tonight.â€? Hemstad countered, “Of course we can approve this tonight. We are an elected body and we are not dictated to by any other group that is unelected.â€? Bowman said during a phone interview Tuesday she did not know prior to the meeting about the resolution to hire Kenyon Disend as the legal counsel for the board. She stated she supported the alliance between Valley and University of Washington Medicine. “I am hopeful we can all work together soon,â€? Bowman said. Hemstad said when reached by phone Tuesday, “All the steps we took at the last meeting were to reestablish the authority of the elected board. We have statutory oversight and responsibility and we should not have abdicated that.â€? Hemstad said the payment of the firm, which could be either hourly or by retainer, will be considered at the next meetings. The commissioner also stated changes to the bylaws will likely be presented at the next meetings.

It will be like a walkable village,� Merrill said on Feb. 3. “It won’t just be our store. And it will offer a really high quality line of products. It will have gourmet cheeses and olives, a lot of natural and organic foods. It will look different than a regular Fred Meyer and it will fit into the community

“One additional cool item, it will have a pharmacy walk-up window,� Merrill said. “We have begun installing these at a couple of our stores and they’ve been very popular. You park, walk up to the window for your prescription, don’t have to go into the store if you don’t need to.� Merrill added that the Maple Valley-Black Diamond Chamber of Commerce and the city of Maple Valley “have been great to work with.�

It will be like no other Fred Meyer that you guys have in that area.� Fred Meyer officials are pleased to prepared to open up here. “We’re just thrilled,� Merrill said. “We love opening a new store. We’re thrilled to open in Maple Valley and serve the residents there.� The store will bring 160 net new jobs, Merrill said, and the store will have about 220 total employees. The store director, Eric Georgia, was recently selected.

In addition to Fred Meyer, there will be a number of other businesses in buildings surrounding the anchor including Pinnacle Physical Therapy, Smile Brands, BECU, Chase Bank, Sprint, Burger King, Desert Sun and Super Supplements.

Kent Elementary and Kent Mountain View Academy received the award in 2010. The schools were recognized in the following categories:

Six schools in the Kent School District and one school in the Tahoma School District are 2011 Washington Achievement Award recipients. Kent-Meridian High School, Kent Mountain View Academy, Kent Elementary, Neely-O’Brien Elementary, Sawyer Woods Elementary, and Mattson Elementary received the award from the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction and the Washington State Board of Education. The Washington Achievement Award celebrates schools for overall excellence and special recognition in: language arts, math, science, graduation rate, improvement, and closing achievement gaps. Schools are selected based on their statewide assessment data for the three previous years.

I was fortunate enough that my father in law gave me a loan to start with. We opened up in 2002.� Nearly a decade of success there, which he renamed Gino’s Bistro, led him to open another location in Port Orchard in 2007. Things went well there until the economy tanked and Rivera was forced to walk away. Still, the idea of running a second restaurant remained, and Maple Valley was still in the back of his mind. “When I used to live in Maple Valley I used to think it would be a great place (for a restaurant),� Rivera said. “Everything has been moving east. Now it looks like Maple Valley would be where the growth is.� His landlord at the small neighborhood restaurant off Southwest 320th Street in Federal Way also owns the building in Four Corners where the new Gino’s Bistro, slated to open in March, will be located.

and told her if anything ever opened up in Maple Valley, to let him know, to which she replied, “Funny you should ask about Maple Valley.� Shortly before that conversation, the Shakey’s Pizza spot opened up, she said. It seemed ideal for Rivera. He got financing for the improvements the space needed, then went back and got more, and has been preparing the place for a grand opening in the coming weeks. Rivera has put in a fair amount of work, he noted, because all that was in the restaurant was a pizza oven. He wanted to do the same Italian menu he does in Federal Way, as well as the other items he offers ranging from steaks to Mediterranean flavors to Spanish influenced dishes such as paella, which is his personal favorite. With the help of his father, as well as the work of contractors, the restaurant has been completely renovated. Walls have been moved, plumbing fixed, a bar has been added to complement the dining room and 20-seat banquet space. “It’s been more of an investment over here,� Rivera said. In a city with a dearth of sit-down restaurants with busy families, Rivera said, he hopes to provide something they can’t get right now. “The core of our business is that we’re a neighborhood

QFC Supports Heart Health It is fitting that a month which includes Valentine’s Day should also be American Heart Month. February is a month when we should consider not only the love in our hearts but also the health of our hearts. That’s one reason why QFC is proud to support the American Heart Association and “Go Red For Women.� “Go Red For Women� was created by the American Heart Association in 2004 to call attention to the fact that heart disease is not just a disease for older men. As noted on its website, “More women die of heart disease than all forms of cancer combined.� In fact, in the year in which “Go Red For Women� was created, cardiovascular disease was killing nearly a half-million women in the U.S. annually. Funds raised for the “Go Red For Women� are used to support awareness, scientific research, education and community programs to benefit women. The AHA “Go Red For Women� website reports that “over 2 million women have learned their personal risk of developing heart disease by taking the Go Red Heart CheckUp,� and “over 200,000 healthcare provider offices have received critical patient information on women and heart disease.�

If you would like to support QFC’s charity of the month you can do so by asking your QFC checker to scan a $1, $5, or $10 donation card, designate that your 3-cent reusable bag credit be donated or simply place your extra change in our coin boxes. At QFC we believe that everyone’s health is important and during 2012 we are actively encouraging our associates to make choices to lead healthier lifestyles. One of the ways we are doing that in 2012 is by offering our associates several walking challenges. Walking is a great low-impact form of exercise that can provide a host of great benefits. Studies have shown that walking can strengthen men and women’s hearts to decrease the risk or occurrence of cardiac events. It has also been associated with stronger bones, a slower decline in cognitive ability, reduced risk of developing diabetes, improved fitness and physical function and more! Walking is a form of exercise that most people are able to engage in even if they must start with short sessions. As the body adapts and responds to regular exercise, most people are able

Everything is made to order.� Rivera noted that he makes all his food from scratch, nothing is pre-packaged and re-heated in the microwave, something patrons may see at other restaurants. In addition to service in the restaurant, he said, Gino’s Bistro in Maple Valley will also offer event catering and a family-style take out menu ideal for the go-go lifestyle of the family-oriented community. As a father of four kids — Keanu, who is 17, Max, 16, Kiara, who is 12, and Nyah, 11 — he understands what it’s like to try and help his wife feed the family in between homework and soccer practice. His wife, Kelly, will oversee operations at the Federal Way location as things get going in Maple Valley. Rivera has brought in a chef to help him with Maple Valley. “I have somebody that has worked for me over the years,� he said. “I’ve brought him over to get that place going. Hopefully this will be an opportunity for him.�

Some tips for Valentine’s Day

OK, I am in the newspaper business last time I checked. That means I am supposed to write stories and try to tell something resembling the truth. Here goes. 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. One little, tiny mistake and you will forever be branded with the secret scarlet letter. Only women know what the letter is, but it is there. They can see it, but we can’t. The following are a few of the top mistakes to avoid as Valentine’s Day approaches: “I don’t really care about Valentine’s Day, honey.� If your wife or girlfriend says that your first reaction is to panic and then look for cover. If you believe that statement then I have a three-legged horse that will win the Kentucky Derby this year because he has heart. Oh yeah. You don’t have to buy me anything. Just having you around is enough.� If you hear this statement, God save you, because you are in a lot of trouble. You have done something really dumb, begin thinking and trying to remember. I know it hurts right above the eyes to think, but it is the only way. “I don’t really like roses, dear.� This is known as the classic hearing test. What does she like? That is the question. You had better know, which brings us to our next one. It is known to many as trouble with a capital D. Diamonds — Marilyn Monroe was right. They are a girl’s best friend.

Decisions by Black Diamond City Council disquieting

Letters dbox@maplevalleyreporter.com

Editor’s note: This letter was written by former Councilwoman Kristen Hanson to the Black Diamond City Council.

22035 S.E. Wax Road Maple Valley, WA 98038

I have many concerns with three of you being new and Mr. Goodwin having two years experience and guiding you down a road that is only for his benefit and his vision and not in the best interest of the city or the vision that has been in place for 20 years. This has been very obvious in the last two months. The CFD’s (community facilities district) are in the best interest of the city,

boys and girls were all marched into the gym. You know when the boys where shuffled to the back gym and the girls went somewhere else. This was not the “S� class I thought it was. I was told by a very reliable source who shall remain anonymous, we will call her Kris Hill, the girls are taught about the “Three Cs� Of course I was dippy enough to bite. “Three Cs? I never heard of that. Why doesn’t anyone ever tell me anything?� Finally I broke her down and she gave me the girl code. “It means cut, color and carat. We learn it early.� I think she said carat, or maybe it was clarity — it is hard to remember three things with a male brain talking about these subjects. Now that I have outlined a few of the traps waiting in the days ahead, here is my Valentine’s Day superhero secret code. I can tell you from experience this one works. Believe it or not, I, at one time, got a girl to like me, or I tricked her just long enough. It is important to remember, women do have that moment of weakness. It just takes perfect

timing — their moment of weakness plus our moment of not appearing incredibly dopey and pathetic equals romance. Here is my secret: chocolate-covered cherries. I made them myself. I cooked the chocolate, dipped the cherries and nearly burned myself to death at least three times. I messed up the stove, the floor around the stove, all the counter space and somehow got chocolate on one wall. It didn’t matter, I ended up with a dozen chocolates and the burns got me sympathy points. Let me tell you it worked, just don’t eat them all before you present them. In conclusion, the best line about your valentine may come from a movie about baseball, “A League of Their Own.� Jimmy Dugan, played by Tom Hanks, is a washed up baseball star coaching a women’s baseball team. He tells Dottie Hinson about his love of the game. “I gave away five years at the end my career to drink. Five years. And now there isn’t anything I wouldn’t give to get back any one day of it.� Time is short. My advice is to make some chocolate-covered cherries. It matters.

the fact Mr. Goodwin convinced you there was no way any of you could possibly understand it and move forward obviously shows his opinion on your ability to understand the complexity in front of you. You might want to go straight to the source, YarrowBay and get answers, or have staff get them for you and not filtered by Mr. Goodwin. I want to remind you that the old “lame duck� council as Mr. Goodwin has been quoted in the Seattle Times voted 5-0 for the MPDs (master planned developments). I also would like to remind you that it was Mr. Goodwin’s choice not come back after the doctrine of necessity was triggered in the development agreement hearings. For me his decision was a slap in the face to the city and the constituents who voted him in, yet people praised him for not participating. His stubbornness came before the cities that he is to represent, first and foremost. I hope that you, Tamie (Deady), Joe (May) and Ron (Taylor) really do your homework and fully understand the cause and effect of changing our government from a strong mayor to a city manager. As I am sure you are learning the city does not have the funds to currently hire a city administrator. YarrowBay only has to pay 30 percent of that salary. Where are you going to find the other 70 percent, get rid of police and

fire? I don’t think that would go over well with citizens, not to mention trying to take away our right to vote. Why is it so urgent that this get changed? Why not just wait two years and vote for someone else, just like we have for the last 50 years. A city manager has a much higher salary than a city administrator and are often replaced after four years with a nice severance pay, this is very costly to the city. The other thing to keep in mind is that if the form of government did get changed who do you think would be elected by the council to be mayor? Mr. Goodwin of course. Here is where you might want to call MRSC (Municipal Research and Services Center). If Mr. Goodwin would be elected any decision he made could be put back on the city manager, what that means is Mr. Goodwin could act however he wanted without any legal implications directed at him. He already does what he wants even if legal counsel advises otherwise, therefore jeopardizing the city. Black Diamond needs growth, we need jobs, we need revenue and more conveniences for our citizens. Mr. Goodwin is going to make you all believe that past council “didn’t care� about the citizens. He could not be more wrong. [ more LETTER page 7 ]


XXXDPWJOHUPOSFQPSUFSDPNtXXXNBQMFWBMMFZSFQPSUFSDPN [LETTER from page 6] Every decision we made was always in the best interest of Black Diamond and the future not to mention we followed the law which has been shown by the Court of Appeals. Mr. Goodwin voted with the entire council most of the time. This city was in a moratorium for over 12 years. The GMA (Growth Management Act) was implemented in 1996. I don’t think this is too fast and I don’t think 20 years is too fast. I worked very hard and fought for this city and citizens every step of the way as did the other council member and as I hope you will. I would like to know if

you all have read the development agreements and tell me what you would change, legally what could you change? I hope for the sake of Black Diamond that all of you will think for yourselves, do your research, ask staff questions and listen to all the citizens. You represent the city of Black Diamond, that includes people who didn’t vote for you and those that just didn’t vote not just citizens who back TRD (Toward Responsible Development) and Save Black Diamond. I look forward to your “public meetings� and council meetings.

Creating a symphony of spring garden plants for the theme gardens this year and there will be plenty of tunes along with notes of fragrance and plants that waltz through the spectacular indoor displays.

Creating a garden is a lot like creating a symphony when you think about the repetition of plants and colors the way a melody reoccurs in a musical composition. But I like a lot of drama in a garden design. That means opera in the musical world, so here are some practical ways to add drama to your own back yard – or stage a performance for all the neighbors to see in the front. Marianne Binetti

The Compleat Home Gardener

The second week of February is time to celebrate a symphony of spring at the Northwest Flower and Garden show staged each year in Seattle at the Washington State Convention Center. This year the show runs Wednesday, Feb. 8 through Sunday, Feb. 12. Music is the theme chosen

GARDEN OPERA: THE DRAMATIC DIVAS Add delphiniums to your landscape this summer. Delphiniums sing the blues with elegant long legs and strong voices. Delphiniums may be demanding with drinking problems,

chemical dependencies and requiring lots of support – doesn’t that sound just like a diva? So now I must confess that delphiniums commit suicide in my garden and are always attacked by slugs then rudely ignored by me as they grow ugly. Some operas are tragic, some divas die young. Not much you can do about that.

any garden when you plant garden thugs like bamboo, lamium yellow archangel, wood hyacinth or that horrid villain with the British accent, English ivy. Some of the worst offenders even sneak into your beds as gifts from “friends.� If someone offers you all that you want of a certain plant, find out why they want to get rid of it.

Add a canna, banana or palm tree to the landscape for shock and awe – but remember that these star players demand a lot of attention and need to be constantly in the spotlight for maximum heat and sun exposure.

Beware of not just groundcovers gone wild but also theft of foliage caused by deer and tragic, early deaths of sweet young beauties caused by frost, wind or a real tragedy – death by thirst as you forget to water. This spring, many home owners will be replacing Japanese maples and other star players lost to the ravages of the ice storm.

tive plants – is so hated, banished and tossed into the murky underground by gardeners without a heart. Consider for a moment that moss fills dark corners, shaded tree trunks and damp soil where nothing else wants to grow. Then imagine the beauty that sheets of moss add to pots of spring bulbs set into a basket, to topiary forms waiting to be filled with new plant growth, to low spots too damp for a real lawn. Unmask the bad reputation moss has been given and move the phantom to center stage - moss lawns are much more practical in Western Washington than the closely cropped grasses meant for dry climates.

I nominate boulders that fill in for bushes as rock solid heroes in the garden, as well as garden benches, bird baths and a wide, welldesigned pathway. Garden heroes have a strong voice and give the garden plot more structure. Hearty and healthy evergreen plants are also heroes of the strong and silent type in the garden and might I suggest the evergreen yew plant (the genus Taxus) as the best-behaved evergreen, especially for dark and shaded spots. Every opera needs a supporting cast and sometimes the real stars are all about yew. Yes, every landscape has a story to tell, so add some drama to yours with divas, villains and heroes in the

garden.

property,’� Peterson said. “Instead of having the golf course property turn into residential land, maybe we can sell the development rights and use it another place.� Ross explained his company would have then purchased the TDRs from the city and used them to meet the base density requirements in the Donut Hole site. Another potential sending site is the 50-acre Legacy Site located on Maple Valley Highway, across from Rock Creek Elementary School and the Tahoma School District administrative offices, which has residential capacity. Theoretically, the city could

also in turn place a conservation easement and move the TDRs elsewhere. “Deciding where else to add higher density is where it’s uncertain,� Peterson explained. According to the Maple Valley ordinance which established the TDR program, it is designed to “allow opportunities for increased density in specific designated parts of the city that are best suited to accommodate urban densities with the least impacts to the environment and public services.� Due to the relatively recent creation of the program, however, it has yet to be seen how the policy will ultimately influence any zoning density and in what

part of the city. “This framework is midprocess and it’s kind of in its infancy,� Peterson said. The use of TDRs in the master planned developments in Black Diamond will be explored in Part III.

Playoff picture to be settled Wednesday for all other teams in the SPSL North BY KRIS HILL

khill@covingtonreporter.com

Kentwood’s boys basketball team has something many of its South Puget Sound League North division rivals don’t have: certainty. The Conquerors, who capped off a three game winning streak with a 49-39 victory at home Monday night against the Ravens from Auburn Riverside, assured themselves of the No. 1 seed out of the North into the league playoffs Friday at ShoWare Center. But several boys and girls teams in the North played in tiebreaker games on Wednesday night after the Reporter’s deadline. Kentwood quietly celebrated after beating Riverside by cutting down a net from one of the hoops in the gym but early in that game things looked a bit shaky for the Conks. In the first quarter there seemed to be a lid on both buckets. Neither Kentwood or Riverside seemed to be able to score. It wasn’t until more than three minutes had passed before Prince Ligon, a 5-5 senior guard for the Ravens, hit a jumper to move the score to 2-0.

From there, Riverside went on a 7-0 run and went up 14-7 to finish the first period, but Kentwood answered by scoring 20 points in the second quarter to take a 27-26 lead at the half. Kentwood made some additional adjustments at halftime and came out on a roll, going on an 11-0 run in the first four minutes and change of the third quarter. From there, the Conks never looked back, holding off the Ravens to clinch the North division title. “It feels good,� said Taylor Jones of winning the division. “It was our expectation. To be here is kind of refreshing. In this league there’s a lot of teams that could have won this.� Seniors Jeremy Smith and Jones led Kentwood in scoring, with 17 and 14 points respectively. It was a good way to wrap up the regular season after losing for the second time on Jan. 31 to Mount Rainier. The Rams beat the Conks by 13 points six days before Kentwood went on to win the division, something experts early in the season predicted would be won by Mount Rainier, or maybe even Kent-Meridian. “Last week we had a bad game,� Smith said. “We

JAMES KIELLAND, For the Reporter just shook it off in practice. Saturday was a big game and we took it seriously. In the beginning of the season everyone doubted us. We knew that we could win this. We knew that we could go on to bigger and better things.� Kentwood bounced back from the defeat with a 13 point win over Tahoma on Feb. 3 then a crucial victory over Kent-Meridian at

home on Feb. 4. At halftime, Kentwood had a 10 point lead over K-M, but the Royals were able to cut the Conks lead to single digits twice in the second half including making it close in the waning moments of the game. With 4:26 left in the game a Joe Kramer jumper made it a 59-45 Kentwood lead but then K-M pushed the pace in an effort to get

back in it and the strategy nearly worked. Mike Banks hit a three pointer in rhythm then Gary Bailey followed that up with a three ball from the wing. Denniko Howard drained a jump shot with 2:29 left to cut the lead to six. After a timeout during which the packed gym was [ more CROWN page 15 ]

Tahoma rolls in sub-regional BY KRIS HILL khill@maplevalleyreporter.com

Tahoma had 14 wrestlers in the finals of the sub-regional tournament Feb. 3-4 at Kent-Meridian which it won handily tallying 475.5 points while second-place Kentwood had 231. The Bears, which have not lost a dual meet in the South Puget Sound League North division in four years, rolled against familiar opponents at the sub-regional which featured only their division foes. In four of the first five weight classes, Tahoma wrestlers faced an opponent from their own team in the finals on Feb. 4, while the Bears had a total of eight sub-regional champions. Auburn senior Brian Alonzo got the better of Tahoma sophomore Todd Link in the 106 pound final, winning 3-1 on a take down in the waning seconds of the third period. Tim Whitehead, a junior, beat fellow Tahoma wrestler sophomore Sam Schuessler 8-1 in the 113 pound championship match. Tahoma’s Cruz Velasquez beat teammate Blake Hoyle 7-1 for the 120 pound title. Stephen Hopkins won the 126 pound crown when fellow senior Jesse Vaughan took an injury default. At 126 pounds, Joey Palmer of Tahoma won on an injury default by teammate Gabe Boynay. Colton Marlowe of Kent-

lake, which finished fourth overall as a team, won the 138 pound final when he earned an 8-5 decision over Kent-Meridian’s Joshua Smith. Tanner Mjelde, a senior from Tahoma, beat Kentlake’s Sean Farr with an 11-7 decision in the 145 pound final. At 152 pounds it was an all Auburn High final with junior Josh Tate getting the 7-2 win over senior Tilden Sansom in the final. Tahoma’s Dan Haniger finished third at 152 with a 9-2 victory over Daniel Couch of Kentridge. Auburn claimed another sub-regional individual title at 160 pounds when Seth Mizoguchi put together a 14-5 decision over Jonathan Ohashi, a senior from Kentwood. Garret Autrey, a junior from Tahoma, held off Kent-Meridian’s Thomas Kemp in the 170 pound sub-regional final with a 7-5 decision after pinning his previous two opponents.

Good news for the people in the U.S.A.—heart attack rates are definitely dropping. The rate of heart attacks in this country has dropped by a whopping 6.7% since 2006. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention credits this remarkable improvement to the fact that there have been many improvements in the treatment of heart disease and also to the good news that consumers are getting wise and kicking their bad smoking habits. Women, young people, Asians, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders have shown the most marked signs of improvement. Unfortunately, coronary heart disease is more common for men, people with less than a high school education, and people who live in the South. Talk to your health care provider to find out the best ways to keep your ticker ticking. Eating a healthy diet, maintaining a healthy weight, getting regular exercise, and limiting your alcohol intake are some of the lifestyle habits you’ll need to adopt to help prevent heart disease. Your health care provider also should test your cholesterol levels at least once every five years. To schedule a consultation with Southlake Clinic, please call us at (253) 395-1972. Our primary care providers are part of a multi-specialty physician network and are also available on Saturdays. We are located in Covington at 27005 168th Place SE.

[ CROWN from page 12] going nuts Banks cut the lead to four with a lay-up off a fast break. A series of turnovers — two by K-M and one by Kentwood — was then followed by a Jones jumper which pushed the Conks lead back out to 61-55. Austin Benson wrapped up the scoring at the free throw line with 5.6 ticks left on the clock when he made a pair of free throws for the 64-58 victory. “I think we showed what we’re about,� Jones said. “I think we showed that we can play. We’re kind of focusing a little more. We

know what we’ve got to do to play well. We’re kind of deadly when we focus, when we play good defense because that leads to offense.� Jones finished that game with 18 points followed by Benson’s 15, Smith’s 13 points which including a trio of three pointers, and Kramer’s seven points. Smith explained that Kentwood has suffered lapses during games that were six or seven minutes long so the biggest thing they’ve taken away from the past week has to been to keep any further lapses “nice and short.� “We can always get bet-

ter,� he said. “The way we’ve been playing, we should be able to win it all.� Jones added that he believes the Conks have proved themselves. “We can do some damage if we play well,� Jones said. Kentwood faces Curtis, the No. 1 seed out of the SPSL South division, on Friday at 6:30 p.m. at ShoWare Center. Meanwhile, on Monday night, Kent-Meridian and Mount Rainier finished in a tied for second place. K-M beat Auburn 67-65 and Mount Rainier defeated Kentridge 77-69. The Royals and the Rams split their two meetings

this season. They played in a tiebreaker game for the second and third seeds out of the North on Wednesday night at Auburn High. Also on Monday night, Tahoma beat Kentlake 7562, which resulted in three teams vying for the final two playoff spots: Tahoma, Kentlake and Kentridge. Kentlake coach Ron Charrier explained the tiebreaker in an email. “We finished in a tie with KR and Tahoma for fourth,� Charrier wrote. “Since there are two spots up for grabs, they go by a point system on who beat who.� Since Tahoma beat Kentridge twice, the Bears had

On Wednesday night Kentlake played Tahoma in a mini-game, two eightminute quarters, with the winner getting the fourth seed out of the division. The loser would then play Kentridge with the winner earning the fifth and final spot with the loser out. On the girls side, thanks to Kentwood’s 46-44 victory Monday night over Riverside, the Conquerors played in a second place tiebreaker on Wednesday night at

Auburn High. The Tahoma girls found themselves in a situation nearly identical to the boys in a three-way tie for fourth and fifth places. Auburn played Thomas Jefferson in a mini-game at Auburn Riverside on Wednesday night with the winner earning fourth place and the loser playing Tahoma for the North No. 5 seed.

devastating brain damage that can results from a lack of oxygen over an extended period of time. “They saved her life,� said Jackie Booth, Wendy Booth’s mother. “There’s just no question.� Jackie and her husband, Al, were at their home in Renton at the time and didn’t receive the news until hours later. “Kate called us at around 3 p.m.,� Jackie Booth recalled. “My phone was in the bedroom so I didn’t find out about it until around 5 p.m. By then she was on life support. I was in shock.� When they arrived at the hospital, they found friends, as well as their daughter’s colleagues from the fire department had gathered to show support. “These people had given up their Christmas dinners to be there,� Jackie Booth said. Ironically, although the incident was an emotional scare for her parents and friends, Wendy Booth does not remember anything from Christmas or the following days due to being in a coma for a day and the drugs she received after they discovered she also had staff pneumonia. As a result, said she feels indifferent about it. “It’s still kind of a little surreal because I don’t have the emotional attachment to the situation,� she said. “The whole trauma of hearing that I’m not make it or have brain damage with the lack of oxygen, or I might have some trauma; I came out of it pretty much

unscathed with the exception of skipping a few beats. I have vague memories of people visiting me in the hospital. I don’t even know whether it was the day or the day after. I have a vague memory of the days beforehand.� Wendy Booth was eventually discharged from the hospital later that week on Friday, Dec. 30, and was working again nine days after the incident. While she has yet to teach a CPR class since, she said she plans on mentioning it. At the same time, she credited the fast response from paramedics for saving her life as well. “I think it’s just adds to the benefit of knowing that at least in King County that we’re so lucky to live in this area,� she said. “Matt hadn’t taken CPR since he was in ninth grade and he jumped on it and went from memory. It that just getting the aid car and everyone getting there so quickly is the benefit of King county. It’s only going to add to the story.� Though Matt Bill used primarily chest compressions, Booth said she still teaches breathing as a part of CPR. “It’s ultimate the fastest way to keep people viable,� she said. “But if you come across someone you don’t know you can do chest compression and save a life, in theory.�

Community Note CENTRAL WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY LAUNCHES DUAL ADMISSION Central Washington University announced a new dual admission program that will reduce the time and expense college students commit to completing a bachelor’s degree. The program allows qualified students to be admitted to CWU when they are admitted to a community college anywhere in the state. The new program will streamline the admissions, advising, and transfer processes. “Students who participate in the program are considered fully admitted to the community college and conditionally admitted to CWU,� said Margaret Badgley, CWU assistant vice president for University Centers. CWU has piloted the concept for more than a year and has already

signed up more than 120 students. Through the program, students receive personalized academic plans that outline all the courses they need to complete at the community college. The dual admission program is available now at CWU campuses co-located with Big Bend Community College, Edmonds Community College, Everett Community College, Green River Community College (Kent Campus), Highline Community College, Pierce College at Ft. Steilacoom, Wenatchee Valley College and Yakima Valley Community College. By spring quarter, however, the program will be available to students at all thirty-four community and technical colleges. Badgley says a spin-off benefit for the program is increased collaboration between CWU faculty and their community college peers. For more information, visit www.cwu.edu.

Thank you. We’re celebrating one year of caring for you in our new home. For Plateau residents, the dream of having a new, state-of-the-art hospital close to home became a reality on February 2, 2011, with the opening of St. Elizabeth Hospital. Building on a legacy of more than six decades of dedicated care in the former Enumclaw Regional Hospital, we continue to care for you with skill and compassion. St. Elizabeth features a spacious Family Birth Center, leading-edge surgery suites and an emergency department open 24 hours every day. Our team of physicians, nurses, staff and volunteers are honored to have cared for thousands of our Plateau neighbors this past year. We look forward to providing healing care and comfort for decades to come. As part of Franciscan Health System, St. Elizabeth patients have access to the full family of hospitals and clinics, so no matter what comes your way, we can help you get back to living the life you love.

St. Elizabeth provides: 24-hour Emergency Department Family Birth Center Diagnostic Imaging Inpatient Surgery Outpatient Surgery Endoscopy (GI) Services Inpatient Care Critical Care Cardiopulmonary Services Digital Mammography
