One week after a small plane dropped from the sky to crash on the face of Mount Si, investigators are still without definite answers for why three people are dead. The plane, a Cessna 172 with one pilot and two passengers, was destroyed when it crashed into the mountain early Wednesday, Feb.

Assembling at the foot of Mount Si, King County search teams and firefighters huddle Wednesday, Feb. 15, before hiking to the site of an early morning plane crash. Investigators are still seeking the cause of the deadly accident. 15, killing all three aboard. Last week, the King County Medical Examiner revealed the identities of the victims, Robert Hill, 30, Seth Dawson, 31, and Elizabeth Redling, 29, all from the Federal Way area.

What they were doing in the plane, where they came from and why they were flying so near Mount Si are all still unclear. See CRASH, 3

Filling

empty bowls As Mount Si Food Bank sees record demand, grassroots benefit can help meet local needs By Carol Ladwig

Editor

The broad second-floor expanse of the big, beige Kendall Lake building on Douglas Avenue is mostly empty now. That’s expected to change in a few months, when its suites become home to an enterprise wholly new to Snoqualmie Ridge—a King County divisional headquarters. In a bid to move closer to the bulk of its permit business, the county’s Department of Development and Environmental Services the Kendall lake wants to relo- building cate its 98-person main office from Renton to Snoqualmie, as early as this summer. The county is two months into negotiations with Kendall Lake owners Meriwether Partners of Seattle for an estimated $300,000 lease, about half of what the county pays for its current facility—a place DDES Director John Starbard likens to a gloomy DMV.

From art to food

BOWLS FROM 1 Isaiha is working at Ruth Huschle’s art classroom at Snoqualmie Middle School, where there is some serious collaboration going on. A class of sixth graders, at least 20 of them, are elbow deep in clay, and intent on making their visions take shape, not just for themselves, but for their community. The North Bend-based food bank serves an average of 390 families each week, and had a record of more than 400 during the holidays, Director Heidi Dukich said. About 300 of the people served are children, just like the artists making these creations for Empty Bowls. “What I love about this project is it incorporates an educational component, for students and for the community to really learn about hunger,” said Dukich. Empty Bowls (www. emptybowls.net) is a decade-old movement that began in Michigan, when Detroit art teacher Ruth Huschle, John Hartom asked his Snoqualmie Middle School Art Teacher students to make clay bowls as a fund-raiser for the hungry. The students created 120 bowls, and guests were asked to choose their favorites, which the students then filled with soup. Ticket proceeds were donated to a local hunger-fighting organization, and, at the end of the meal, the guests were asked to keep the bowls as mementos. Since that October 1990 event, the program has spread across the nation and to several countries. Next month, it comes to North Bend. Students and staff at Snoqualmie Middle School, along with art students at Twin Falls and Chief Kanim Middle Schools and Mount Si High School, are working on bowls for the food bank’s first Empty Bowls dinner, set for 4 p.m. Sunday, March 25, at the Si View Community Center. Admission is $20 per person, and guests will, at least symbolically, share the experience of food bank clients, Dukich said. They will stand in line, like the food bank clients do, and be served “a simple meal of soup and bread.” A silent auction and live music are also planned for the evening, but most importantly, “People are going to bring their bowls home with them as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world.” Dukich, always looking for new ways to support the food bank and involve the community, felt that Empty Bowls really matched the goals of the food bank, feeding the hungry, and educating and involving the community. The event, she thought, would be a fun way to gather the community, and a different approach to meeting needs. “What’s important for us to do as community is look for other ways to find resources,” she said. “If we’re only relying on federal or state or municipal funding, we’re not being prudent.” Last fall, she pitched Empty Bowls to Huschle, who also loved the concept. “It’s important for the kids to learn at a young age that this is a real issue. It isn’t just ‘oh, that’s only happening in the city,’” Huschle said.

Seattle Pottery Supply is discounting its food-safe glazes for the students’ creations. A limited number of tickets will be available. Sales start Wednesday, Feb. 22, at the food bank, 122 E. 3rd St. in North Bend, or on the organization’s website, www.mtsifoodbank.org. Participants can choose their favorite bowls for their meal, but it will be difficult. Bowls come in a wide variety of shapes and finishes, representing the personalities of their crafters. For example, Katryna Shaw shaped her bowl into a tree, because “normally, trees represent peace in the Native American culture,” she said, and whoever picks Addison Carr’s creation will have a sort of trophy. Carr liked the project because “It really helps people out in a bad situation.”

Spirit of the caboose When she introduced the project to her students, she said, “They were excited.” Although they may not have known about the food bank or how many people live with hunger each day, she said they knew what their goal was. “They kind of said ‘OK, we get it, this is going to be a fundraiser, and we’re going to be making these as gifts,’” Huschle said. Since clay is part of her regular curriculum every year, this is still a school project, she added. Students have to meet requirements for texture and workmanship on both of their bowls—one to keep and one to donate. Huschle has also asked them to write about the project, who is affected by hunger, and what they want their bowls to represent. “It’s a curricular project that is so directly tied to the foundational piece of a fundraiser,” Huschle explained. “Because without the kids having that idea, the spirit of why they’re doing it, it’s really just a clay project.” “Everybody in the community benefits,” added Dukich. “It’s our responsibility to take care of each other.”

Annual benefit to be held at Boxley’s Feb. 25 A special visit from the spirit of Great Northern Railway X101, the 120-years-young caboose at the Northwest Railway Museum, is on the program for the museum’s Working on the Railroad gala benefit.

Raging River Forest: The next big destination? Under DNR plan, forest could have major recreation potential By Celeste Gracey Issaquah Reporter Staff Reporter

Surveying a path through the ravine, Sam Jarrett stands on the edge of a clearing. A screen of trees hides the Raging River from view, but not its sound. He glances back at a power substation, before slipping through a nest of blackberry bushes and down to the river’s edge. Rocks turn logs into teeter-totters above swirling water, which washes out the eery buzz from power lines. Imagine a trail along the pristine river. It’s a possibility, says Jarrett, a recreation manager for the Washington Department of Natural Resources. The scene reveals the potential of the Raging River Forest to become the next big recreation site along I-90. About four years after acquiring the land, DNR is now planning for what to do with it. It kicked off the development of its recreation management plan for the Snoqualmie Corridor Feb. 1 with a public meeting at Snoqualmie Middle School. While most of the Raging River’s second-growth forest, which has an impressive network of logging roads and a power line clearing that runs its length, has been impacted by logging, it is otherwise unexplored by hikers, bikers and equestrians alike. The three groups have a history of trail dispute. The Raging River Forest is an opportunity for all three user groups to figure out what types of trails they can share and where they need their own. “This is a blank slate,” said Douglas McClelland, DNR’s assistant region manager. Raging River was privately owned until DNR acquired it about four years ago. The only trails are logging roads. While some hikers have ventured to explore the forest, few know the Raging River forest better than Ralph Owen, who regularly explores it on foot. He remembers when DNR decided to allow biking on East Tiger Mountain, which butts up against Raging River, about 15 years ago. Trails that hikers had created were given over to bikers, he said. “There is always going to be tension,” he said, but having bikers in the plan from the beginning will help. The recreation plan, which includes the Snoqualmie Middle Fork, is one of the largest that the Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance has been invited to participate in, said Doug Walsh, a biker at the kickoff meeting. It’s a big deal for bikers. Bikers only have access to about 12 of the 80 miles of trails on Tiger Mountain. As a result, some have “poached” trails or crossed into hiker-only areas. There isn’t much opportunity to expand on Tiger, but there is a strong possibility of connecting to a new Raging River network. Likewise, horse riders are looking to connect their trails on the nearby Taylor Mountain and hikers are hoping to officially connect Tiger Mountain with Rattlesnake Ridge, east of the Raging. The land doesn’t come without some baggage. DNR exists to manage Washington’s 5.6 million acres of trust lands, much of which can be harvested for timber. The money is used to help build schools and prisons, said

Responding to an early morning plane crash that killed three people, searchers set up a staging area at the foot of Mount Si, just across the Mount Si Road bridge, Wednesday morning.

Above, Natural Resources employee Sam Jarrett stands at the edge of the Raging River. The land, recently acquired by DNR, has big recreational potential for multiple user groups. Below, Doug Walsh, left, and Peter Sherill both participate in the Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance. They attended the Feb. 1 DNR meeting to give input on what they’d like to see happen in the Snoqualmie Corridor forests. Bottom, Ken Schulz, a horseman, would like to see separate trails for horses and bikes in the Raging River Forest.

McClelland, who is leading up the recreation plan. Over 8,000 of Raging’s 10,000 acres will remain “working forests,” meaning DNR will continue to log the land, even after trails are built. This has always been the case on Tiger, which is about two-thirds working land, he said. Mountain bikers came to the kickoff meeting looking for a way to create more places to ride, he said. “What they learned is there is much more to it than that.” DNR first began creating formalized recreation management plans a few years

ago. The Snoqualmie Corridor project is the biggest attempted in the state. It’s an important region for recreation, because demand has been much higher for afternoon hikes that only take two to three hours, McClelland said. At the forest, Jarrett, from DNR, rests his hand on the wheel of his truck. Looking past the buzzing power lines, he glances up into Raging River’s thickest forests along Rattlesnake Ridge. The entire valley has a view of surrounding mountains. “It could be a destination landscape for recreation,” he predicts.

No flight plan was filed, but that’s not unusual in night flights with reasonably clear weather, said National Transportation Safety Board Regional Chief Jeff Rich. “What we know is it collided with mountainous terrain,” he said. The investigation, conducted by NTSB investigator Wayne Pollack, will attempt to answer the other questions. The crash occurred after 1:30 a.m., estimated King County Sheriff spokesperson Sgt. Cindi West, whose department took a couple of reports of a loud noise in the area at 1:55 a.m. One caller’s account suggested the plane’s engine stopped. “There was what he described as a pop, then silence, then the crash,” West said. No one reported any smoke or fire to indicate an explosion. Two patrolmen who heard the impact were already en route to investigate the incident, West said, and when their radios picked up the sound of an emergency beacon, “that’s when search and rescue got called.” Guardian One, the county’s rescue helicopter, was also in the air within the hour. Several specialized teams of search-and-rescue volunteers, including four-by-four and technical climbing teams, were onsite and able to begin their searches by daylight. “We had at one point, about 43 people on the mountain that day,” West said. Rescuers had to hike up about a mile and a half to where the helicopter had spotted some of the wreckage. Sheriff’s Office personnel also closed the hiking trails on Little Si and Mount Si, and controlled traffic on Mount Si Road during the day. Both trails remain closed until further notice, but the road re-opened Wednesday afternoon, once the victims’ bodies were recovered. Deputies will also do traffic control and offer other assistance while NTSB investigators work at the crash site. Pollack, who arrived in Washington from his Los Angeles office Thursday, said he’d need only one to two days at the crash site, starting Friday, Feb. 17. “We’ll spend the day on the mountainside looking at the evidence of the impact signatures,” he said, continuing with a lengthy list of details that would be examined, such as broken tree branches, ground scarring, and the location and position of pieces of the plane. For example, he said lowered wing flaps could indicate the plane was attempting an emergency landing, suggesting that there had been a malfunction, or possibly a tree collision. The clues are put together, and working backward, the investigator tries to determine the plane’s flight path. “That will provide a key piece of information for us, because the aircraft’s flight path is a key indication of what was happening in the cockpit,” he explained. Other clues will be provided by reviewing the plane’s maintenance logs, interviews with the pilot’s flight school, examining the weather conditions at the time of the crash, an autopsy and toxicology report on the pilot, and, Pollack hoped, “the radar track from the FAA, if there is coverage in this area.” The radar track can provide “evidence of when and where the airplane took off, where it was headed… It’s our best witness as to how the airplane got to the airplane crash site,” Pollack said. Should Pollack determine that he needs more time to review the wreckage, NTSB will take possession of the wreck and move it to an indoor facility for further study. That happens rarely, Pollack said. Typically, the aircraft owner is responsible for removing the debris and storing it, sometimes for years, until all insurance company investigations and potential lawsuits are settled. A typical NTSB investigation, which is required by U.S. law for all civil airplane crashes in the U.S. and some internationally, can take six to nine months before it is complete.

O

ne thing I never thought I’d still be doing 13 years into the journalism game is the ‘Person on the Street’ interview. But I still find myself occasionally backing up Staff Reporter Carol Ladwig on what we call ‘Question of the Week,” hanging out on the sidewalk of well-traveled places like grocery stores, gas stations and post offices, recorder or pen in hand. Every year, the Valley Record asks more than 200 locals a weekly question. The actual number is probably between 400 and 800, because there are usually at least two people who don’t want their names and photos published for every four brave enough to share their thoughts. Our weekly questions run the Seth Truscott gamut from political headscratch- Valley Record Editor ers to fun, easy questions generally referred to as “softballs.” In the last six months, our questions have included: “Can you be addicted to Facebook?” “How will a new traffic signal change Carnation?”, “Do you prefer voting by mail,” and “Would you join a service club?”, among others. Even the easy questions share a slice of life, but difficult, more abstract questions, obviously take longer than softballs. I’ve found that matters of city or education policy can often draw blank looks for from folks who, for whatever reason, are unfamiliar with happenings on the local scene. Fair enough. That’s Weekly questions when you’ll find me and Carol doing our In the last six months, Valley best to explain the Record questions have includmatters then and ed, among others: there. Think of it a “Can you be addicted to personalized news Facebook?” report, straight from “How will a new traffic signal the horse’s mouth. change Carnation?” There’s also an element of chance “Do you prefer voting by mail in play. Far from or voting in person?” scientific, question “Would you join a service of the week results club?” are based on who we bump into first who is willing to answer our question. Sometimes, for the sake of balance on a charged issue, or to keep things interesting, I have been known to ask six or eight folks the question and run the best answers. I don’t mean ‘best’ as in answers I personally agree with, but ‘best’ as in the best mix of ideas. We clean up your grammar as needed—real human beings usually don’t speak in complete sentences, let alone Associate Press style—but our goal is to present what we hear, unvarnished. Generally, what you see is what we get. Sometimes, other readers take our Question of the Week respondents to task for their opinions. Everyone has the right to their own views, of course, but I credit all 200 of the people who respond, even if I may not personally agree with what they say. It takes guts to put your views out there in public, your face right there in black and white. Not everyone agrees to do this, though many enjoy reading it, and I dare say, may even learn something from the weekly poll. The opinion pages are your pages. Question of the Week is a Valley Record tradition, and we’re going to keep on doing it. You can help freshen the mix with your suggestions and ideas about prospective questions. Your ideas help us think about the issues in ways we might never find by our lonesome. You can also help by answering the questions when asked, but hey, to each their own. A week’s worth of limelight, via weekly newspaper ink, await those brave enough to be a “Person on the Street.”

When police arrived to Freddie’s Club in Renton, they found three security officers out of breath and holding down the 34-year-old man. The suspect was described as over six feet tall and weighing in excess of 350 pounds. He appeared to be intoxicated and caused a disturbance after challenging other club patrons to fight and not leaving the premises when asked. Before he was taken to jail, he kicked a police officer, used profanity toward police and another patron and refused to sit in the patrol car. The man was arrested for investigation of assault and breach of peace.

Dahlia Barn’s Jerry and Aimee Sherrill grow their base, talk shop at Northwest Garden Show By Seth Truscott Editor

Jerry Sherrill knows all about the beauty of a good bonus. He and wife Aimee, owners of the Dahlia Barn in North Bend, entice passing shoppers at the big Northwest Flower and Garden Show with many colorful varieties, from Cornel to Kasasagi. But the big draw, Jerry is pleased to note, is always the bonus bin. Curious customers can’t help but try out a twofer. Having personally divided each dahlia tuber by hand, Jerry proudly says that each one—freebies included—is a keeper. “Every one of these, I’ve bagged myself,” he said. “I can tell you there is an eye on every one.” The Northwest Flower

A MODERN DAY MERCANTILE!

Years of trade show experience are paying off for North Bend’s Aimee and Jerry Sherrill. Selling hand-bagged tubers from their Dahlia Barn booth, they meet many new customers at the annual Northwest Flower and Garden Show. Left, their award-winning barn-shaped booth. Garden Show, held February 8 to 12 at the Washington Convention Center in downtown Seattle, is the second largest in the country. It’s the only such show that the Dahlia Barn takes part in. The Seattle expo is a great start to the season for retailers like the Sherrills. Besides talking shop with fellows in the business, they meet thousands of new customers, who the Sherrills say often wind up making the drive to North Bend. “There’s a lot of future business that comes out of doing this show,” Jerry says. The Dahlia Barn has been a fixture here for six years. Since that first visit, their humble 10-by-10-foot pegboard stall morphed into a modular 10-by-20-foot booth of red

wood and corrugated metal, that happens to resemble a barn (and won the Sherrills a booth award). Seniority allowed the Sherrills to claim prime real estate by the main entrance to the show’s huge vendor hall. “It’s a great area to be in,” Jerry said. The Sherrills started their mail-order and retail dahlia growing business 10 years ago. Most of their plants are grown in Thorp, in Eastern Washington, on acreage the Sherrills purchased in 2007 to expand their operation. Their barn at Mount Si is in easy driving distance from core business in Seattle and the Eastside. “It’s a labor of love,” Aimee says of their operation. “It’s like our third child.”

“If we look at our bloodline, our ancestors, there was farming involved,” Jerry said. “I find a real peace with that.” With the change of seasons, the round of tasks for the Sherrills is constantly changing, too. “You feel like you always have something to look forward to,” Jerry said. During winter, the Sherrills retreat to the barn for months to prepare their product. “By the time you get to this time of year, you’re dying to talk to people, share your product and sell it,” Jerry said. “Here at the show, you meet 100,000 people who are into what you’re doing. Even if they’re on the fence—that’s why you have a bonus bin.” • The Dahlia Barn is open for dahlia tuber sales at the barn on weekends and April through May. Call or check the website for exact times. U-Cut gardens are open on weekends in September.

Remembering Mount Si’s Valerie Meyers By Carol Ladwig Staff Reporter

“Go Wildcats! Grrrrr!” It was hard for Mount Si High School teacher and tennis coach Jim Gibowski not to laugh as he repeated those words, but it was a sad moment, too, since it was the way his co-worker and friend Valerie Meyers would send off the students each day. “She was always the one reading announcements on the PA,” he said. “At the end of the day, she’d always say ‘Go Wildcats!’ and she’d growl… A lot of the kids knew her from that.” Meyers died Thursday, Feb. 9, of complications from a heart condition. Students and staff gathered Sunday, Feb. 19, for a memorial service and tribute to the woman, who for many was the first person they met at Mount Si High School. As the athletic secretary handling everything from sports and venue schedules to new athlete registrations, Meyers touched many students and their parents in her day-today work. With her desk just inside the main office doors, she reached the rest. “Val was always the first person you’d see,” said Gibowski. “She was a huge presence here,” Principal John Belcher said. “She is basically the reason why I think our front office has a reputation for being supportive and welcoming and helpful.” News of her death spread quickly through the student body, Belcher said, and Friday morning, he gathered staff to share the news and discuss how the school would help grieving students. The school implemented a crisis response plan, bringing in grief counselors to assist the existing counseling staff, and reserving the auditorium as a drop-in site for students to grieve together. Staff and coaches say the students seem to be coping with the loss, some by writing good-byes on the posters around the school, some posting tributes at caringbridge.org, and some by focusing on helping others. Meyers’ husband Gregg is a teacher and coach

at Mount Si, “so I think a lot of students focused their energy on how they’re going to support him,” Belcher said. As for the adults at the school, he said, “We’re handling it the best we can.” Meyers had been sick this year, but missed very few days of work. When she did once, Gibowski made sure to tease her about her replacement’s lackluster growl on the “Go Wildcats” announcement duty. Baseball coach Elliott Cribby relied heavily on Meyers last year, his first coaching the team. “She really helped push me along,” he said. “I’m really a Type-A, aggressive kind of guy, and she was the same way,” he recalled. “She was my lifeline. If I ever needed anything done, she made sure it was done, and quickly.” It could be because Meyers was a huge fan of sports, and not just track, where her daughter competed, or football, which her husband coached. “She was a fan of sports in general,” said Cribby, “and I think that’s what made her so valuable…. she was an athletic director in her own right.” He remembered how upset she got when, on the day of the game, she discovered that there was a miscommunication and the JV baseball game had to be rescheduled.

Free class on baby doc choices at Swedish clinic It’s never too early to start thinking about who will care for your baby. With so many doctors to choose from, finding the right one for your baby can be overwhelming. A free physician-led class, “Baby Needs a Doctor,” is 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 28, at Swedish Snoqualmie Primary Care, 37264 S.E. Fury St., Suite 101, Snoqualmie. Instructors will help put parents at ease and explain what to look for in a doctor, what questions to ask, and what services to consider, such as electronic medical records and after-hours care. Participants will be introduced to Swedish physicians who will share their philosophy of care, and provide tips on taking care of newborns.

“She started to get really emotional. She felt like she’d completely ruined everyone’s day,” he said. Meyers was very supportive of the student athletes, but they were definitely not her only concern. Belcher, halfway through his first year at Mount Si, was impressed with Meyers’ way with all students. “My office is like a fishbowl,” he explained, and some of the windows gave him a clear view of any students waiting in the main office to see an assistant principal, as well as how Meyers talked with them. “I just watched her connection with kids, she would talk to them, never lecture. She’d just say ‘You might want to think about that before you go in there…’ She related to every type of individual that walked through the door,” Belcher said. A memorial service for Meyers was Sunday, Feb. 19, at the Mount Si High School Auditorium. In tribute to Meyers, Cribby said his baseball team will have a memorial patch on their uniforms this spring, and he thought other spring sports would follow suit. “So, that’s how she’ll be remembered physically,” he said, “but mentally and emotionally, she’ll always be around.” Go Wildcats! Grrrrr!

Cedarcrest sends nine wrestlers to state contest The Cedarcrest Red Wolves ended a winning season with nine wrestlers competing at the 2A wrestling championships over the weekend. Two seniors, Cody Paxman, 160 pounds, and Robby MacNair, 285 pounds, claimed silver medals in the double-elimination tournament. Teammates Carlos Toledano, a 145-pound junior, and Martin Vakamoce, a 170-pound senior, took fifth and sixth places, respectively. Paxman defeated East Valley’s Nick Gonzalez in a fall in 2:30 in the first round of the tournament, then Brennon Gulin of White River in a fall in 1:27. For the final, he faced Tumwater’s Riley Prentice, who won on points, 8-5. MacNair defeated Monike Failuga of Fife in an 8-6 OT win to advance to the championship round. He faced Mt. Baker’s Alec Postlewait, who took first place with a fall in 38 seconds. Cedarcrest also took home a team trophy, with 62 points and a fifth overall finish in the 64-school competition. This followed a second-place win with 171.5 points at the regional tournament, Saturday, Feb. 11, at Bellingham. Wrestlers who placed at the region tournament to win a trip to state were: Bailey McBride, 109 pounds; Curtis Chittenden, 120 pounds; Ely Malametz, 126 pounds; Austin Koons, 145 pounds; and Eli Gremmert, 152 pounds. Also placing in the top six at region, were Nik Werner, 113 pounds; Nick Decker, 138 pounds; and DJ Bergquist, 152 pounds.

Seniors Aaron Peterson, Josh Mitchell and AJ Brevick represented Mount Si at the WIAA state 3A wrestling tournament this weekend at Tacoma.

The big show Mount Si trio of seniors cap wrestling season at state By Seth Truscott Editor

Maybe it was coincidence that Mount Si wrestling’s senior class of 2012 happened to compete at state. Maybe, too, it was the effort that the trio of Aaron Peterson, AJ Brevick and Josh Mitchell put in, battling their way through the season. Preparing for the Tacoma trip on their last day of practice, the three wrestled with vigor. “We’re drilling hard,” said senior Aaron Peterson. “This is all new muscle memory. We’re doing a lot of live wrestling, working on stuff that’s going to work for state.” “State is one of my long-term goals,” the senior added. Mount Si’s trio of seniors ended their season under the Dome. Mitchell, defender of the state title from last year, wound up with a thirdplace medal as a senior heavyweight. Mitchell had a bye in the first round, then took down Josh Ingebretson of Hudson’s Bay on round two with a 2:46 minute fall. He then fell to Kyle Cosby of Spokane Valley’s University High School, 8-2. Cosby fell to Courtesy photo

eventual champ Ian Bolstad of Shorecrest in the final. Meantime, Mitchell clenched third with a 33-second win over Cody Fulleton and a 55-second pin of SedroWooley’s Kevin Rabenstein. Brevick capped his high school career Aaron Peterson, with seventh place at 160 pounds. Brevick fell, 16-5, to Connor Rosane of Mount Si High School Senior Southridge in the first round, then beat Andre Faciane of Hazen with a 2:14 fall in the consolation bracket. He beat Yelm’s Anthony Allred by points, then fell to Mount Vernon’s Jordan Watts in the third round. He then beat Sunnyside’s Sam Romero for seventh. At 138 pounds, Peterson fell to University’s Ryan Gabiel in the first round, then beat Bainbridge’s Dylan Read, 4-2, before falling to Mount Spokane’s Sam Wilkes, 8-3. This is Peterson’s first trip to the Dome. He took fourth at regionals for the opportunity, beating out his prior year’s take of sixth. One local alternate, Mount Si’s 106-pounder Eli Clure, had a chance to taste state competition in a first round battle with Yelm’s Darren Harris, the eventual champ. Clure was pinned after 1:53. Looking back on the season, head coach Tony Schlotfeldt was impressed by how his young team took the KingCo tournament. “We had a lot of young kids who worked really hard,” he said. “It was good to see that.”

“State is one of my longterm goals.”

National football honors for Mount Si scholar athletes Connor Deutsch, Brian Copeland

Mount Si Seniors Connor Deutsch and Brian Copeland have been recognized by the National Football Foundation as 2011 Scholar-Athletes for their combined accomplishments both on and off the field. Deutsch was the starting varsity running back for the Wildcats and was named as the First Team All KingCo 3A running back, with a strong 3.97 grade point average. He will continue his football career in college and has been awarded academic scholarships at several NCAA D1 universities. Copeland, a varsity offensive lineman, is also looking to play football at his first choice university, Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Chief Kanim take over in Eagles games

It is our goal to implement the highest standard of care at every patient encounter whether it is a child’s first visit to the dental office, a teenager who is headed off to college or a special-needs adult patient we’ve been seeing for decades.

Chief Kanim Middle School’s varsity boys basketball teams traveled to Snoqualmie on Tuesday,

Feb. 15, where they earned two victories against the Eagles. The eighth grade team dominated from the start, controlling the boards and playing a smothering defense. Matt Myers had 19 points, Danny Tomson and Kai Stewart had nine, Cory Cotto had eight, Gage Gutmann had seven, Sherwin Viala had six, Connor Schattenkerk had five and Cam Page, George Corrvieau and Jeff Hanley each had four points. Chief Kanim’s seventh graders controlled the boards and made their free throws after first-half foul trouble to earn their win. Luke Pfister had 20 points and 13 rebounds, Garrett Stiller had eight points, Andrew Lewis had six points. Jake Brady had five and Cameron Lakes and Matthew Dowleski each had four points. Coaches Blake and Johnston were very pleased with the boys’ effort.

The move, announced February 6 in Executive Dow Constantine’s State of the County address, is part of an effort to improve customer service at DDES. When Starbard started at the department two years ago, such a move was just one of a long list of options looked at to give the division a healthier bottom line. But with King County’s large cities wrapping up their big annexations, Starbard said the decision is timely. “We’re getting out of the urban business,� he said. With the county dealing with chronic budget shortfalls, the cost of department’s Renton headquarters—$1.2 million in 2010, about $800,000 now—appears too much to bear. Starbard said the Kendall Lake space, 21,000 square feet at 35030 S.E. Douglas St., is expected to be around $300,000 annually. It’s also a lot closer to unincorporated King County’s center of gravity, where DDES does most of its business—which, Starbard reckons, is somewhere along State Route 18. The county’s core business, according to Starbard, has moved away from large corporations in Seattle and Bellevue

Snoqualmie Ridge’s Kendall Lake Building could become the future home for the King County Department of Development and Environmental Services. and their mammoth plats. “For years and years, major developers were our bread and butter,� he said. “In the rural area, we won’t be doing those kinds of plats.� Instead, the core customer will be the smaller rural landowner who wants to improve and manage residential, forest or agricultural property. “Already, we do more permits by volume in the rural area than in the urban area—it’s two-to-one,� Starbard said.

New spaces In selecting the Ridge, the county contracted with a commercial real estate consultant, who scoped out 17 prospective spaces on the Interstate 90 corridor from Issaquah going east. Snoqualmie was the finalist, and the county has been negotiating with Meriwether Partners for two months

(Meriwether bought the building from OPUS Northwest last year for $5 million). One of the county’s requests for the site is for their workspace to be as open as possible. One of the disadvantages of DDES’ current site in Renton is that it’s “really chopped upâ€? into what Starbard describes as pods. “The space doesn’t encourage collaboration, it kind of encourages isolation,â€? he said. “The first-time customer experience is not very good. The glass is dark, the lobby is gloomy‌ a little bit like the DMV.â€? The new DDES headquarters will have what Starbard describes as a “generously proportionedâ€? customer assistance center, or hub, and wider, more open spaces for collaboration. Other changes coming to DDES have less do with physical space. The county is bring-

ing out new permitting software, in which permits can be applied for and paid for online. Many will be able to be issued online—customers won’t have to leave home, Starbard said. With details of the Ridge lease still being negotiated, a final decision to move must be approved by the King County Council. However, Starbard said the advantages of the move make approval very likely. Snoqualmie Mayor Matt Larson is happy with the prospect of nearly 100 county employees working and spending in this city. Snoqualmie and the county haven’t always seen eye to eye—witness disagreement in 2011 over bridge infrastructure to be added to the city by a planned Weyerhaeuser mill site annexation. A local DDES presence may not make much difference in that annexation—
