Caucuses draw huge crowds More than 800 residents turn out to have their voices heard By Dennis Box Editor

P

residential candidate Mitt Romney came out on top in the state Republican caucus Saturday according to numbers released by the party The caucus at North Tapps Middle School brought out a larger than expected crowd. Volunteers at the school estimated about 800 people attended. At the 10 a.m. start time for the event there was a long line waiting to register During the activities there were discussions surrounding key Republican issues. The caucus in Auburn for the King County 31st District residents drew about 280 according to volunteers.

According to numbers provided by the Washington State Republican Party, Romney won the Washington State Republican Caucus straw poll Saturday, easily besting second- and third-place finishers Rep. Ron Paul and former Sen. Rick Santorum. Romney finished with 37.65 percent of the delegates to Paul’s 24.81 percent and Santorum’s 23.81 percent. Newt Gingrich finished a distant fourth with 10.28 percent. The caucuses elected delegates for the county conventions, beginning later this month, which will elect delegates for the state convention, May 31 in Tacoma.

Bonney Lake’s City Council unanimously voted Tuesday to extend a moratorium on collective gardens for medicinal marijuana, following a public forum that elicited no comment. It is the council’s latest move in prolonging a wait-and-see strategy adopted in the absence of state leadership on holes in cannabis policy, or federal approval.

City looks to bring ‘thumb’ into fold By Brian Beckley Staff Writer

When viewed on a map, the city of Bonney Lake is shaped something like a “C,” with city limits encompassing nearly the entire region from the southern part of Lake Tapps to South Prairie Road with one exception: an area of land right in the middle. Known colloquially as “the Thumb” because of its shape, the

The city of Bonney Lake appears to be close to allowing neighboring cattle to graze on the pastures that make up the Reed Property, a 20-acre site purchased in 2010 or its potential as a water source. Bought for $1.07 million and located just east of city limits on Barkubein Road East, the land contains a house and several farm buildings. As the city prepares to drill test wells to check the property’s value as a water source, discussions have been underway on how to best utilize the property until the water right is developed. According to the council presentation, the plan is for the land to be surplussed and sold once the water

right is developed. Test drilling at the site is listed as one of the top priorities for the Public Works department in 2012. In the meantime, there has been interest from several parties regarding use of the land and the house, including a neighboring dairy, a horse owner interested in pasture land, the police department and the Greater Bonney Lake

“We’re not really in the business of being a landlord.” Katrina Minton-Davis, Councilmember

Historical Society. The council is also considering renting out the house, which was built in 1948 and expanded in 1966. But according to Executive Assistant Brian Hartsell, the city would need to invest a minimum of $37,000 to bring the house to a rentable condition. The largest chunk of repair cost comes in the form of a $25,000 roof repair. Councilmembers were split on whether the house should be repaired or potentially just knocked down, though a cost of removal was not available at the retreat. The council also balked at renting the

house and taking on the responsibilities that would come with tenants. “We’re really not in the business of being a landlord,” Councilmember Katrina Minton-Davis said. “If the house is a problem, it needs to go away.” After a discussion during their retreat, the council directed the administration to focus on working out a deal with the Anderson Dairy, whose cows presently use the majority of the land surrounding the property. According to Hartsell, Anderson Dairy wants to use 13 acres of pasture land in exchange for the maintenance of pastures and fences, as well as blackberry and noxious weed control. The horse owner was looking to use the house and some barn space and the council decided just renting pasture land would be better for the city at this time. However, the administration was instructed to continue to pursue an option that would allow the Bonney Lake Police Department to construct a training facility, as well as to continue to work with the historical society to find places for the group to store artifacts and other properties.

Save the date: Lions’ annual ‘Death by Chocolate’ event is March 31 The Bonney Lake Lions Club has set the date of their annual Death By Chocolate fundraiser for March 31 at the Bonney Lake High School Commons. Six years ago the Bonney Lake Lions Club was introduced to the idea of a chocolate-themed fundraiser. A few members of the club got together, rounded up dessert donations, some entertainment and put on a spaghetti dinner with dessert auction. The auction helped fund the Lions programs, including vision and hearing care. It also helped provide some funds to help the Lions 4 Kids House, which was just getting started with its services to the community. Since then, the event has grown to become an annual favorite among the lions and the community. Part of the event’s appeal is the connection with the students from Bonney Lake High School. The Lions moved the event to the BLHS commons a few years ago and work with the Culinary Arts team, directed by Kahale Ahina, to provide the dinner. The school’s recently established Leos club and the DECA club also help with logistics during the event.

But though it is situated in unincorporated Pierce County and has never been part of the city’s Urban Growth Area, the city is looking into purchasing two of the three pieces of land that make up the property.

The city is looking to acquire most of the lowlying farm land that surrounds the house, including the back section to the north and the large, field area to the east of the house, where the Washington State Renaissance Faire set up camp last summer. The northern property, known as the ACI piece, is part of a conservation futures grant that would see the county paying for half of the cost. The property owner has told the city they would have to buy the 56-acre Perfield parcel to the east as well. Mayor Neil Johnson

Corliss have been historically difficult both for them and for other entities negotiating for parts of the land. According to Facilities and Special Projects Manager Gary Leaf, the state tried to purchase a swath of land along Fennel Creek for mitigation and efforts but gave up on negotiations and went through the condemnation process to acquire the land. Councilmembers told the administration that despite the difficulties, the two available pieces were important to the city and they should continue pursuing the land, espe-

cially the ACI piece, which would cost the city a “little over half ” of the value of the land due to the conservation futures program that would see the county contribute $480,000 toward the purchase. “It’s still way important to the city,” Councilmember Jim Rackley said. The administration expects to present the council with a final offer for approval in the next few weeks.

ARTFUL VENEERS For patients with tooth imperfections, resin bonding provides an effective and affordable means of remedying tooth discolorations, gaps, and chips. However, porcelain veneers are superior in terms of strength, durability, and aesthetics. These factors may make porcelain veneers preferable to bonding for correcting tooth defects, particularly in the most visible teeth. In addition, porcelain veneers may be used to lengthen a tooth and to give the illusion that malpositioned teeth are straighter. The veneers are rigid shells that are firmly attached to outer tooth surfaces once the surfaces have been prepared to accept them. This preparation consists of removing a thin layer of enamel and etching the surface. Usually two office visits are required for the entire process. With our technology, we are able to deliver veneers on the same day. P.S. Because porcelain veneers are individually sculpted, they are difficult to differentiate from natural teeth. You can rely on us to answer all your questions about dental treatments and procedures. At LAKERIDGE DENTISTRY, PLLC, we appreciate the opportunity to provide you and your family with quality dental care. Our team is made up of well-trained professionals who work together to provide the highest quality treatment in a warm, caring setting. We’re located at 8412 Myers Road E., Ste. 301, Bonney Lake.

Washington is one of 16 states—plus the District of Columbia—to have legalized medical cannabis for a limited range of ailments. However, the state law only provides an affirmative defense for possession of cannabis plants for approved medical use; meaning anyone caught with harvested herb or a plant can still be charged with possession, but a person with a legitimate doctor’s note can present it as a defense in court. More importantly, the federal government does not recognize state laws on medical cannabis, and continues to classify the plant as a Schedule I controlled substance. “Our legal advice has been, so far, that the federal government still classifies marijuana as an illegal drug,” Deputy Mayor Dan Swatman said. That logic has been the driving force behind the Bonney Lake moratorium, and a similar moratorium on cannabis dispensaries in Sumner. Sumner held a public forum on the moratorium at its Monday council meeting. The Bonney Lake moratorium, however, deals specifically with collective gardens. Under the state law, individual medical cannabis patients are allowed 24 ounces of harvested pot and 15 plants. Broadly speaking, a collective garden is a mechanism to group several allowable individual plants into one sum crop for greater efficiency of production. The allowable amounts are individually divided and owned; they just happen to be growing in the same location. “There’s some confusion (in the state law) even as to how a collective garden is defined,” City Administrator Don Morrison said. “How would that be zoned? I don’t know. Would it be commercial? I don’t know.” Dispensaries have been easier for the city to handle on a piecemeal basis. First, because there has only been one application to open such a business. Second, because business applications can be denied if its trade is deemed to be illegal, which it is under federal law. Bonney Lake may have to wait longer for state guidance. Senate Bill 6265, regarding collective gardens and nonprofit patient cooperatives, died in committee Feb. 22. A voter initiative legalizing the possession, sale and taxation of up to an ounce of marijuana for persons 21-yearsand-older, I-502, has been approved for placement on the November ballot.

said at least four different deals seemed to have been in place in the past five months before falling apart at the last minute before they could be brought to the council. “Things change, people change their minds and come back with a different offer,” Johnson said. The mayor said the biggest sticking point is the desire by the current owner to continue using the land for his profit, even after the city purchases it. “Corliss still thinks he owns the property after the city buys it,” Johnson told the council.

Amtrak station an example to us all Adversity often brings out the best in people. We find ways to pitch in and solve problems that government can’t. Since the recession began, nonprofit organizations have seen a big increase in volunteerism, and as state and local governments are forced to slash public services, volunteers are coming forward to pick up the slack. For example, after the city of Las Vegas laid off half of its park maintenance staff, neighbors put together volunteer work crews to pick up trash, wash picnic benches, trim shrubs and paint the curbs.

Brian said, “I’ve heard all the arguments against gay marriage and I find them all to be bigoted piles

In communities from Anchorage to Atlanta, volunteers are picking up the slack, helping to fill gaps in public services. But if history is any guide, some government agencies don’t appreciate such community spirit. Take Amtrak, for example.

I am a conservative, one who believes in a small, nonintrusive government that encourages and allows the people of this nation to better themselves.

Letter FROM 6 down the street, I know this by the color of their skin. If a homosexual walks down the same street, I have NO idea what their sexual preference is, nor do I care. The civil rights movement was about the equal treatment and opportunity for all persons without regard to race, color, religion, or national origin. It makes NO reference to your sexual preference. The government should have no interest in what legal sexual behavior a person does in the privacy of their home or their sexual preference. I am not ashamed to say that I attempt to live my life in a manner that is pleasing to my Savior, Jesus Christ. Can I live by God’s Law? NO. Nor can Brian. I take offense to his claim that I “want to force someone else to live by your God’s (Brian’s God too, as he’ll discover on Judgment day) rules.

In my daily walk, I will treat a homosexual like everyone else: with gentleness, respect and dignity. Anything else would not be Biblical. If you’re a homosexual living in a country that is ruled by sharia law, and your homosexuality is exposed, you will be executed. Do you honestly believe that a Holy God approves of this judgment and condemnation under sharia law? I close with this; the origin of marriage is from God’s word. Marriage is a commitment or a vow taken between you and your spouse before God, that you’ll love, honor and cherish. Marriage does not provide happiness, even if the government says it’s “ok”.

Home alone? Some kids are up to the task K

evin McCallister is the protagonist of the iconic ‘90s movie, “Home Alone.” Kevin -- age 8 -- is mistakenly left at home during the Christmas season after his family flies to France to celebrate the holiday. Kevin must defend his home against bumbling burglars and generally fend for himself. While the premise of “Home Alone” is a humorous one, and Kevin certainly has the smarts to outwit the two foolish thieves and seems relatively self-sufficient, in real life the idea of letting an 8-year-old stay home by himself is one that would no doubt raise an eyebrow. In fact, many states have laws in place that regulate the age at which a child is legally able to stay home alone. ... Stay Home Alone? Age limits vary according to area and can be verified by contacting one’s local child welfare agency. However, the National SAFEKIDS Campaign recommends that no child younger than 12 be left at home alone. It is only by the age of 12 or 13 that kids are able to think logically and self-supervise for an extended period of time. Even at

off

... Shower or Bathe Alone? This is really a case of personal preference. The American Academy of Pediatrics Policy states that children younger than 4 should not be left alone around or in water due to the risk of drowning. Parents can gauge whether a 5- or 6-year-old child is mature enough to shower or bathe on his or her own, since at this time some children experience embarrassment or issues of privacy as they become more aware of their unclothed bodies. Even if the decision is made to allow unsupervised bathing, parents can regularly check in on the child to ensure that he or she is OK.

Amtrak about $150,000 a year, according to Rich DeGarmo, a retired pharmacist who supervises the 60 volunteers who operate Centennial Station. The selflessness and determination demonstrated by these volunteers serves as an example for us all. For example, millions of retiring baby boomers could put their lifetimes of experience and skills to work as volunteers, enriching communities across the nation. Instead of complaining about problems, they — and we — should set about solving them with our time, skills and elbow grease. Isn’t that what America is all about? Don Brunell is the president of the Association of Washington Business.

The story began 25 years ago, when train travelers grew frustrated with the three-sided lean-to that served as the East Olympia Amtrak station. One patron noted, “The potholes in the parking lot would sometimes be a foot deep — no restrooms, no nothing. It would have made maybe a half-way decent farm stand.” The station was next to a gated crossing and several people had been hit and killed by passing trains. Because it was unstaffed, Amtrak wouldn’t allow women traveling alone to get off there after dark. The tipping point came one night in 1986 when a Los Angeles-to-Seattle Amtrak train dropped off a wheelchair-bound man at the East Olympia shack. No one was there, the vandalized phones weren’t working, and he spent the entire night stranded. Thurston County officials, frustrated at Amtrak’s inaction, formed the nonprofit Amtrak Depot Committee to solicit donations for a new station. Thurston County donated a highway maintenance depot and a local farmer contributed five acres of land. Individual donors bought 2,500 commemorative paving bricks for $35 to $50 apiece while large business donations were acknowledged with marble plaques. An architect contributed the design and local contractors, working alongside volunteers, donated time and materials

to build the station. Centennial Station opened in 1993, and both the station and the adjoining park-and-ride cost between $600,000 and $1 million (compared to an $18 million budget for the new Sounder-Amtrak station in Tukwila). The station boosted Amtrak ridership in and out of Olympia, adding an untold amount of money to Amtrak’s coffers. Amtrak did not contribute to the Centennial Station effort and today Amtrak’s literature lists the station as “unstaffed,” giving travelers the impression there’s no help available there. In reality, the station is staffed entirely by volunteers, 12 hours a day, 365 days a year. That saves

Be a pod person: plant peas for springtime

All I am saying, is give peas a chance. This is the week to leap into spring as February stretches into March and it is time to plant the seeds of a healthy harvest. Plant pea seeds now if your soil is well drained or you garden in raised beds. Delay planting if you can grab a handful of soil and a good squeeze causes water to run through your fingers. This means the soil is still too wet and seeds could rot. In most areas, sweet peas, garden peas, bare root strawberries, raspberries, fruit trees, rhubarb and asparagus can be planted now. If you’ve never grown peas from seed you are missing one of the sublime sensations of tasting the sweet color green. Like tomatoes and sweet corn, homegrown peas have a superior flavor. Our kids preferred fresh peas to candy and we still serve them in the pod as portable snacks and after -dinner treats. You don’t need a vegetable garden to harvest a crop of peas. A pot at least 2 feet deep or half-barrel planter can provide enough root room for a small harvest.

Some surprises on SPSL All-League roster By John Leggett Staff Writer

When Puget Sound League 2A and 3A released their all-league teams last week, there were a few surprises – most notably that Bonney Lake’s 6-foot, 7-inch senior center Mike Gould was the only first-team selection from either Sumner or Bonney Lake high schools.

Boys

Gould was named to the Class 3A’s top five along with Tony Chynoweth, a junior guard from Enumclaw; Markus Rawls; a Decatur Gator; and A.J. Holloway and Zach Banner, both of Lakes High School. The 3A second team included Bonney Lake’s Derek Lund, plus Abe Ferrel-Logan of Decatur; Cody Olson, Peninsula; Josh Upchurch, Auburn Mountainview; and Dequan Walls, Lakes. Receiving 3A honorable mention were Bonney Lake’s Mikey Berger; Jordan Johnson, Lakes; JJ Lacey and Keith Green Jr. of Auburn Mountainview; Jeff Bartley, Decatur; and Andre Lewis, Lakes. The SPSL 2A all-league first team had no Sumner representation. Making the list were MVP Ahmaad Rorie, Clover Park; Billy Kiel and Alex Sayler of White River; Erik Swartout, Eatonville; David Crisp, Clover Park; and Bryce Miller, Fife. The 2A second team included Sumner’s Zeb Glissmeyer, Dan DeVries and Joey Kendall. Also named were Jacob Esseln, Steilacoom, and Dalton Hancock, Eatonville.

Getting honorable mention were Sumner’s Dave DeVries; Jason Tyler, White River; Dwayne Crawford, Clover Park; Zach Fairhart, Eatonville; Scott Campbell, Fife; Michael Dupree, Franklin Pierce; Dashun Salgado, Franklin Pierce; Deshawn Habte, Steilacoom; Matt Bender, Steilacoom; Thomas Cusic, Washington; and Teddy Hardy, Fife. White River’s Rick Tripp was named Coach of the Year for guiding his troops to a 20-plus win campaign that eventually led to a state tourney appearance.

Editor

There were temptations aplenty as Scott Rose decided where he would spend the next four years of his life. Large, Division I programs made limited offers and a powerful Big Sky suitor came calling with a last-minute pitch. But, in the end, the White River High football standout knew in his heart what was best. “It just felt right,” Rose said of his eventual commitment to tiny Menlo College in Atherton, Calif. “It was a real good fit right

away.” As Rose played his senior season for the Hornets, interest built in the 6-foot-4, 295-pound tackle. He was noticed by Pacific 12 programs like the University of Washington and Washington State and even had a discussion with Boise State, which has become a national power. Each of those programs offered Rose the same opportunity to become a preferred walk-on. Such players initially pay their own way with hopes of performing well enough to land a scholarship. Rose was clearly on the radar of the coaching staff from

The Band of the Year recognition went to Sumner High under the direction of Joe Carl. The majority of these local players – both boys and girls, 3A and 2A – will play in the March 24 Rotary/Rec Roundball Rendezvous at the Rock. The

coed charity encounter is sponsored by the Enumclaw Rotary Club, the Sumner and Bonney Lake Parks and Recreation Department, Enumclaw’s 4 Suns Sports and the Enumclaw and Bonney Lake Courier-Herald newspapers.

In the 2A realm, the firstteam contingent included White River’s Cassidy France and Kennedy Hobert. The remaining choices were Eatonville’s Jessica Stead, Laccie Hill and Kaelyn (KK) Voss. Fife’s Ciara Pedroni was the league MVP. The SPSL 2A second team included Sumner High’s Jaime Lange and Tayler Holtman. They were joined by White River’s Amanda Lance, Sam Schubach of Washington and Danielle Pritchard, Clover Park. A single local made the 2A honorable mention roster, Sumner’s Nicole Miller. White River’s veteran skipper, Chris Gibson, was voted Coach of the Year. The Class 3A first team group didn’t include any Bonney Lake Panthers, but two girls made the second team – Mekenzie Voellger and Naomi Pounds. The Bonney Lake girls took home the Sportsmanship Award in the SPSL 3A girls category, while the Sumner High girls

Menlo, a program that was on the way to building a 5-5 record while playing an entirely independent schedule. Menlo’s coaches invited Rose to attend their game in Puyallup against Pacific Lutheran University. In short order, Rose was hopping on a plane and jetting to the Bay Area to visit the Menlo campus and watch the Oaks take on Oregon’s Willamette University. With an eye toward earning a degree in sports management, Rose wanted to see what Menlo offered academically. From that standpoint, Menlo – which bills itself as The Silicon Valley’s

Business School – was a slam dunk. “They had exactly what I wanted to study,” Rose said. The decision to attend the institution less than 30 minutes from San Francisco almost was derailed. The University of Montana was a late entry into the game, suddenly offering Rose the same full-ride scholarship Menlo had put on his plate. Menlo’s key selling point was the opportunity to play right away. “I look at it as a great opportunity,” Rose said.

Sandwiching Thursday and Saturday victories around a Friday evening loss allowed the White River High girls to claim a thirdplace finish in the Class 2A state basketball tournament. The Hornet girls joined seven other hoop hopefuls for the threeday extravaganza staged in the Yakima SunDome. All had survived the regular season, plus district and regional battles, to earn a spot in the 2A’s Elite Eight and a trip to Yakima. For White River, the third-place showing ties for the best finish in school history. The 2000 club also placed third while competing at the Class 3A level. “I was very pleased,” veteran coach Chris Gibson said. “If someone had told me at the beginning of the season we’d go 27-3 and take third at state, I would have taken it.” Gibson had high praise for this year’s squad, pointing to a strong work ethic and team camaraderie. “They do things the right way,” he said. White River 42, Blaine 28 Thursday, March 1 Neither team shot well, but that’s not uncommon during the first day of a state tournament. Each connected on just 18 percent of their shots from two-point range. The biggest difference was White River’s ability to get to the free-throw line; the Hornets went 21-of-33 from the stripe while the Borderites were good on 11 of their 19 attempts. The White River bench also made a difference, outscoring Blaine;s nonstarters 14-4. Senior Cassidy France was particularly active, scoring nine of her game-high 15 points at the line. Freshman Kristin Sturdivan also cracked double figures, draining three 3-pointers on her way to 11 points. After trailing 9-8 following the first quarter of play, White River rattled off a 15-4 advantage during the second frame and never looked back. East Valley-Yakima 46, White

Underdog Hornets earn 24-7 record By John Leggett Staff Writer

In the three games underdog White River boys basketball squad competed in at last weekend’s WIAA Class 2A state basketball championships, held in

Yakima’s Sun Dome, the dark horse Hornets won a tandem of cliffhangers in their quarter and semi-final match ups, The Buckley boys were thrown to the ferocious Lynden Lions on Saturday afternoon. No prayer in heaven

could have preserved the Hornets against a red hot and deep Lynden team that outrebounded a vertically challenged WRHS crew nearly 2 to 1 to become the 2011-12 Class 2A state cage champion, as Lynden outscored White River 58-34 in the final three periods to cruise to a convincing 66-45 triump and consequently earn the state basketball hardware. “No excuses, Lynden is a very talented and very deep squad, with a fabulous bench. White River didn’t have the luxury of bringing in the second wave reinforcements off the bench like Lynden did and by virtue of having played a pair of 9 p.m. overtime games on the previous two evenings, by the second quarter of that championship tilt, we were flat out fatigued,” said Hornet skipper Rick Tripp who had just finished guiding the team to the second best overall season mark in

White River boys basketball history at 24-7. Just as it had against Sumner High in the Sweet 16 state round at Mount Tahoma High’s facility two weeks ago, the cavalry came charging over the hill to the rescue though, when Lynden’s gleesome threesome rose up off the rails and reversed the entire trend of the encounter as that trio of players went 11-of-13 from the floor, four of which were tres to outshine the Hornets 21-7 in the second stanza and own a 29-18 advantage at intermission. Try as the enormous throng of faithful fans and followers might to exude strength and courage against an awfully formidable Lynden contingent though, it was apparent that Buckley’s little deuce coupe that could, simply didn’t have much left in the tank after the previous two evening’s heroics. The

fact that the vaunted senior guard tandem of Billy Kiel and Jason Tyler combined for 26 points, just couldn’t make up for the fact that Sayler, the Lilliputian but lively 5-foot, 6-inch junior backcourt threat who at times carried the Hornets, during a postseason run that saw them go 8-for-10, was held scoreless in the lopsided affair. Lynden played some fairly stellar defense of its own holding Sayler to 0-for-9 stats from the floor and the also didn’t foul him in the act of shooting to give him any chances from the charity stripe. In the previous two evenings the hot rod entry from Buckley in the big show had refused to lose as it was given the checkered flag twice; once trimming the feisty Bulldogs of Ellensburg 67-65 in overtime on Thursday night and on the ensuing evening blasting the Lindbergh Eagles’ chances of advance-

Friday, March 2 No one wants to start a tournament game ice cold, but that’s exactly what happened to the Hornets. White River found itself trailing 12-0 and didn’t make a field goal until Kennedy Hobert’s layin at the buzzer. The second quarter was a different story entirely, as White River suddenly got hot, outscored the Red Devils 15-8 and trailed just 20-17 heading into halftime. The third quarter showed the Hornets were for real,

as White River took a lead on the No. 2-ranked team in the state. Perhaps the rally took a toll on the team. White River led by three heading into the final eight minutes of the contest but could muster only six points during the fourth period. “We had some good looks, but just missed shots,” Gibson said. Again, free throws played a crucial role in the outcome. The Hornets outscored the Red Devils from the field, but were sent to

WR Boys B-Ball ment out of the sky, by edging out LHS 41-40 in the bonus frame. Sayler, right along with Kiel, Tyler and the rest, definitely exceeded Tripps expectations in regards to what the 2011-12 campaign might hold for a group that hadn’t gone very deep into the play-off jungle at the conclusion of the previous 2010-11 outing. While the positive-minded Hornets had entertained visions of a state tournament appearance since early December of 2011 according to Tripp, playing the clash for the state crown?…Not so much. “This great group of guys did seem to peak at the right time as the only two games we lost during our 8-2 play-off run, were the WCD III title confrontation against Sumner’s Spartans at Kent’s ShoWare Arena Feb. 20 and the battle for the Class 2A state basketball pennant with Lynden at the Sun Dome,” stressed Tripp summing up. the free-throw line just four times, making two. The Yakima crew connected on 15 of their 20 attempts from the stripe. Hobert, who was named to the all-tournament team, led the Hornets with 17 points and 10 rebounds. White River 56, Lynden 46 Saturday, March 3 Anyone who thought the Hornet girls would drop into a deep funk following Friday’s loss was mistaken. “I was proud of the way we came back and played very well,” Gibson said. “I liked the energy we showed and the passion we played with Saturday.” That doesn’t mean the Hornets made it look easy. A 15-point halftime lead (34-19) was whittled to nine points in the third quarter. The Lions outscored White River 15-9 during those eight minutes to cut the margin to 43-34 heading into the fourth quarter. The Hornets weathered the brief in fine fashion, though, and went on to claim then thirdplace hardware. White River had its best shooting night of the tournament, connecting at a 48 percent clip from the field. And, again, the Hornets held the advantage at the foul line, making 17 free throws to Lynden’s eight. France led the offense with 12 points and Hobert chipped in with 10.

19th Annual Community Summit gets to the ‘Heart of the Matter’ By Brian Beckley Staff Writer

The 19th annual S.T.A.R.R. and Sumner/Bonney Lake Communities for Familes Coalition Community Summit is scheduled for March 15 at Calvary Community Church in Sumner. This year’s event is themed “The Heart of the Matter” and will feature a keynote address from Sumner High School Leadership Teacher John Norlin. The event gets started at 3 p.m. with the pre-summit session “The Heart of the Matter - Health as a Priority” featuring Lauren Wilson and the PEP Grant All-Stars. The session will focus on how movement and fitness can prevent health risks. From 5 to 6 p.m., there will be a switch to smaller, breakout groups with topics like transportation, healthy living, community block watch programs, affordable housing and more. members of the Bonney Lake and Sumner city staff will be on hand for the breakout sessions. At 6 p.m. the dinner begins, complete with the awarding of the Unsung Hero Awards and the keynote from Norlin. Norlin presently serves as Sumner High’s ASB advisor and Leadership teacher. He holds a Master’s Degree in organizational leadership with a servant-leadership focus, from Gonzaga University and a Bachelor’s Degree in secondary education from Eastern Washington University The idea behind the awards is to recognize the many individuals and groups that give of their time and talent to help others and make both small and large contributions to communities within the Sumner School District. Their contributions do not go unnoticed, be it within their organization, school, or community they serve in or by the individuals they impact along the way. For many, it is their life’s work, but because these unsung heroes are often behind the scenes, the extent of how they impact others is not always known. The Community Impact/Unsung Heroes Awards seek to recognize these individuals. Nominations for the awards were accepted through February. For more information about the event, or to register online, visit www.sumnersd.org. Calvary Community Church is located at 15116 Gary St., Sumner.
