Tax season is a frenzied time for Patti Hammett and yet she wants to make the most of this busy period to help Tahoma High School seniors. It started simply enough nine years ago when the Maple Valleybased tax accountant whose kids attended Tahoma schools started helping the high MAPLE school’s PTA by VALLEY reading through scholarship applications. “It was just so frustrating to me,” Hammett said. “You had these brilliant kids who work so hard, but, if they missed a period or did one thing wrong (on the application) it was so competitive they missed the scholarship.” A few years ago Hammett decided she would donate money for a scholarship because there isn’t enough cash to go around among the senior class every year. She has worked with Kim Walley, who currently serves as PTA president as well as scholarship administrator, on donations. “I called the school and said, ‘I want to do a scholarship. I want

Covington is trying to make it more attractive to build apartments in the city.

This tax exemption ordinance was developed following what Community Development Director Richard Hart called a “proscriptive process” as outlined by state law. “Cities can only do this if you follow the specifics of the state law,” Hart said. “The city must target specific zones where it’s allowed.” Ann Mueller, senior planner for Covington, said City Council

Students learn about effects of bullying BY TJ MARTINELL tmartinell@maplevalleyreporter.com

Bullies are simply cowards, and cyberbullies are no different, according to Maple Valley Police Chief Michelle Bennett. Bennett spoke at Shadow Lake Elementary on March 2 during a presentation about cyberbullying in an effort to inform and educate students about how they can prevent cyberbullying at school.

Bennett explained that cyberbullying is even worse than traditional bullying. “If you aren’t willing to say something to someone’s face, why are you doing it online?” she asked. During the presentation, a video was shown depicting a girl who gets up in front of an audience and verbally insults another girl. The message was that what you say online has the same affect

as saying it in person. “But online it’s worse,” Bennett said. “Because when it’s in person it’s just you and them. Online it’s everyone.” Bennett also took time to give a very specific definition of bullying to help differentiate it between harmless talk. Bullying, she explained, is when someone acts in a way that is intended to make another person feel bad. Joking in a playful manner is not bullying, she said, because the intent is not to hurt them emotionally or physically. Another reason bullies are cowards, according to Bennett, is [ more BULLYING page 5 ]

t wasn’t too long ago when classroom instruction was almost devoid of any technology. Educators in both the Kent and Tahoma school districts are slowly, but surely, adapting to the use of technology for lesson planning, teaching as well as tools for their students. Kimberly Allison, an instructional technology coach, has worked in the Tahoma School District for 19 years, first teaching at Tahoma High. Although there was a computer lab, she said, none of the teachers had their own personal computers. The Internet had been invented by 1993, but, it was still in its infancy. Even then the use of technology was based on traditional learning. When Allison took her class to the computer lab, it was merely to type up reports, rather than write in pencil or pen. If a student needed to do research on a subject, he had to go to the library, search through the catalog and then locate the actual book. “When I taught in high school, it was about using physical resources in a physical building,� Allison said. “It was an automative process, but it didn’t change

anything. Technology was just the tool.� Allison said she remembers going to an information session for teachers in the mid-1990s, where the use of the Internet was discussed. Ironically, at the time, it didn’t appear to her as though it would be anything more than another tool. Now, it is nearly impossible to find a classroom in the Kent or Tahoma schools without some new technology, whether it is in the form of iPads, netbooks, laptops, interactive whiteboards or data management systems, all of which are connected to the Internet. Kent school district staff are already researching new technology they can implement in schools for the 2014 levy. “We really want our students’ learning to be more interactive, which can be done through many emerging technology,� said Thuan Nguyen, chief information and automated operations officer for the district’s information technology department. “We feel it is our responsibility to match what is going on in our society. Our society is becoming more technological and digital, meaning we need these same tools in our classroom so that our students can graduate and be successful in the real world.�

Technology the school district is considering includes Apple iPads, laptops for every student, incorporating all textbooks to be online in a PDF file and Kinect for Xbox 360, which brings games and entertainment to life without using a controller. “Kids today have access to computers and games, they don’t learn the same way they used to in the past,� Nguyen said. “Having students get up and interactively learn is much more efficient today.� Nguyen believes teachers in the future might use augmented reality to teach their students. Augmented reality is a live, direct or indirect view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented by computergenerated sensory input such as sound, video and graphics. It is related to a more general concept called mediated reality, in which a view of reality is modified (possibly even diminished rather than augmented) by a computer. “This next levy will be from 2014-2018, which means we have to think about what technology might be available at that time when we make our decisions,� Nguyen said. “We must always look ahead.� Right now the district is operating from the 2010 levy, which allowed them

Kent schools use Moodle, which allows teachers and students alike to utilize the Internet for classroom work that would have normally been done with pen and paper. For teachers, they are able to build personal websites, post articles and assignments, as well as homework. They are also able to set weekend tests or quizzes for students to take, which can be graded instantly, as well as provide data to the teacher about how the students did on various questions. This allows teachers to focus on concepts in class which were a struggle for students as well as design tests in a way that works better for

at the same time blocking all other sites from access to ensure they are not surfing the web. She can also cause all the laptop screens to go blank while she has something on the whiteboard to show them. Thomas Riddell is the coordinator for the Kent Technology Academy, which works with Mill Creek Middle School students. He agrees with Nguyen about the kids’ progress since the laptops have been issued. “What is so important about each student having a laptop is what the computer can do for the kids,� Riddell said. “For example, most Mill Creek teachers use an online virtual classroom. Because of this, anything I present in class is posted to the virtual classroom and is available for students to review after class and at home. This is great while completing homework, developing projects, or sharing what they learned at school with their parents.� All Kent School District’s students have access to desktops in computer labs, libraries, and classrooms, wireless laptops, SMART Board interactive whiteboards in every classroom, SMART Response remotes to reply to teacher questions “game show style,� digital probeware and microscopes for science and health, digital cameras to record video and still pictures. Through the computers, students can use a wide variety of software tools to complete class projects and

assignments. Almost every classroom in the district has a SMART Board installed. Many teachers use these interactive whiteboard to give students hands-on, mindson learning experiences. Kent is also subscribed to Discovery Education Streaming, a website which has thousands of videos on many topics that tie directly into their curriculum. “My classroom contains a production studio which allows for live broadcasts to be produced as well as students to “travel back in time� through the use of a green screen and editing software,� Riddell said. “The kids love it.� Jamie Mercer, a seventh grade special education teacher at Tahoma Middle School, for example, uses V-Port, an online data management system which performs several functions suitable for her special education needs. She is able to upload all student results on tests and assignments to it, while students have access to class work material when they go home for the day. She also uses Activboards, interactive white boards with access to various software programs, such as word processors, as well as the Internet. With V-Port, she is able to watch student progress with graphs and charts, which are more visually appealing for parents interested in seeing their child’s progress in the class. The online system also improves teacherparent communication

by allowing teachers like Mercer to instantly send student reports to parents upon request. Technology also helps teachers provide students opportunities to acquire skills that have a transparent applicability to the real world. The video production course at Tahoma High taught by Rick Haag is an Apple Certified Training Center where students are able to become Apple certified for certain industries that use Apple software. This certification can be put on a resumĂŠ and placed on their websites. Rick Haag stated that the school has updates included in the software licenses so that the programs the students use are the newest and latest version. There can be downsides. The rapid pace in technological advances can easily make updated equipment obsolete within a few years — an issue the Tahoma School District has to face with its netbooks. One of the district’s goals is to accurately predict what will have the greatest cost-benefit based on its perceived longevity. “The question is what is the best thing and is it worth it,â€? said Walt Szklarski, Instructional Technology Coordinator who worked as a teacher at Cedar River Middle School six years ago. Rick Haag stated that while it is critical to make their students prepared, predicting future tech-

nological trends can be risky for the school district financially. “If you don’t have your hands on it you don’t know how to use it,� he said. “But you don’t want to spend a lot of money on a product and then say, “Oh, we don’t need it.’ Our district is very money-conscious. They don’t want to waste people’s money.� Another issue they have to contend with is a gap between tech-savvy teachers — for whom the change is a welcome one — and those who struggle to adapt, according to Mercer. “I’m a digital native,� she said. “It’s a lot of having no fear in exploring it myself. It’s far easier for someone like me who’s grown up in technology.� Fortunately for those teachers who have difficulties there is a teacher at every Tahoma school, known as a tech leader, who specifically helps the faculty learn how to use new equipment as it is integrated into the classroom. “Like anything, it takes time to change, because the teachers need to learn it,� Rick Haag said. “As a career, our purpose is to educate kids in how to prepare with the industry, so we have to stay current.� Each Tahoma school has a person from the Department of Technology Operations, who repairs and maintains the equipment and the wireless Internet.

They are to instead report it either to their parents or to a teacher if it happens at school. If the bullying is done in person, they are to tell them directly that their behavior is to stop. During the presentation, Bennett also cited statistics that showed bullies and their victims make up a very small proportion of a student population. Seven out of 100 students are bullies, while eight out of a 100 are victims. The other

many local entrepreneurs simply aren’t aware that the PTA and Maple Valley Rotary offer scholarships to Tahoma students and that any amount they can donate makes a difference. And businesses who do contribute are recognized at the PTA’s awards event for seniors which this year is set for 7 p.m., May 23. But, that’s not why Hammett does it. “People just need to know that this is available,� she said. “The kids, they deserve it, and there just isn’t enough to go around.�

85 percent, Bennett argued, can either prevent or enable bullying by how they respond to it when they see it happen. “You guys are the ones that can make the difference in that,� Bennett said.

� Q U O T E O F N O T E : �Objective journalism and an opinion column are about as similar as the Bible and Playboy magazine.� - Walter Cronkite

The news that’s not fit to print Watching the news coverage of the Ohio high school shooting last week reminded me of what makes me so angry about sensationalist journalism. The first thing I read about the story at all was a headline on a website that read “Bullying may have pushed Chardon shooter.� When this particular article published, the smoke hadn’t even cleared, literally. One student was still dying from the wounds he had suffered. Yet commentators were already publishing speculationdriven stories that serve no useful purpose. If that wasn’t enough, the name of the shooter — which I won’t state here — was printed in big letters, along with a large photo of him for everyone to see. There’s the saying that you can’t buy publicity like this. The truth is, you can. The price is just in human life. This one cost two plus one injured and one paralyzed. Maybe it’s just me, but too often when an incident occurs involving a large degree of suffering, it turns into a circus and does more harm than good. The media’s job is to report the news, not to influence it or exploit it, often with serious repercussions. The best example I can think of occurred in Japan during the 1930s. In 1932, two young Japanese lovers threw themselves into the Saktayama volcano near Oiso because their parents forbade their marriage due to class differences. The Japanese newspapers handled it about as poorly as you can imagine. One of the headlines read “A Love That Reached Heaven.� According to “Curious Events in History� by Michael Powell, the article intentionally exploited their suicide with scarcely concealed eroticism mixed with spirituality. The result: There were over a thousand copycat suicides by the following year. The Japanese press continued to exploit this by publishing photos of young couples walking up the volcanos hand in hand to their deaths. Powell writes that the copycats “were a direct result of the romantic hysteria generated by the media.� TJ Martinell Staff Writer

By golly that’s right, all students can learn; that is, “when they want to learnâ€? and what they want to learn. The fact that all students can learn cannot be denied.

Tate’s Notes

Polly Shepherd publisher:

Every time there is a school shooting, I feel newspapers and news stations inadvertently encourage copycats by portraying the shooters as tragic anti-heroes who act out of frustration due to perceived societal rejection or bullying. In an age where fame-seeking is considered a virtue, it also sends an unintended message that the easiest way to have your name and face in the news is to commit a heinous crime. After the Virginia Tech massacre, NBC received a videotape and pictures from the killer - whom I will also not name - who mailed it before he had gone on his appalling rampage. If NBC had wanted send the right message, they would have taken the tapes and burned them on live television as a warning to any would-be copycats: You won’t get free publicity from us. Instead, however, they aired it, and the killer got his 15 minutes of fame at the cost of 32 innocent lives and another 22 wounded. Among a reporter’s fundamental skills should be the ability to discern what to put into a story and what to leave out. This can be done for several reasons. In a crime story, it’s done to protect the privacy of a victim or the victim’s family. In others, it’s because the information isn’t necessary for the public to know and is otherwise irrelevant.

But many times we keep details out of stories because publishing it has the potential to lead to greater problems than that which we are reporting on. This is what happened with Colton A. HarrisMoore, a.k.a. “The Barefoot Bandit.� Rather than sticking strictly to the pertinent facts, newspapers shamelessly published photos Harris-Moore had taken of himself with stolen cameras, which were left behind in a mocking gesture. The articles also contained worthless anecdotes of how he left stolen money at animal shelters. How thoughtful. The result was an impression of a mischievous, but well-intentioned Robin Hood-like folk hero. This same image was created for notorious bank robber and cop killer, John Dillinger. Because he looked like the debonair lady’s man, the press painted a sympathetic picture of him which remains to this day, while other murderers who operated at around the same time who were not blessed with similar publicity are remembered for what they truly were. Freedom of information is essential to a free society. But this freedom also brings with it a somber sense of responsibility. And sometimes the responsible choice is to refrain from elaboration for the sake of decency.

tell me how many points I need to get a D and I will handle the rest...� Clearly this student has his own agenda. Raise your hand if you want to be evaluated on how well you brought this student up to the expected academic standards. Having other priorities is not only the case at high schools but research consistently shows that some students at all grade levels studied more after school hours than others, and the test scores generally reflected the difference in achievement. How much control does a teacher or principal have over those scenarios? Family and community have more control. Even though better teacher evaluation tools may be necessary, neither the governor nor anyone else has produced an intelligible argument indicating that we can close the achievement gap by hammering out tighter teacher evaluations; that’s because many Asian and white kids are causing the achievement gap by studying four hours a night after school while many black and brown kids are watching TV more than four hours a night. Perhaps we should spend more resources helping families and students assume responsibility for education. Extending the school day and other options might be considered when families can’t assume

responsibility for education. However not many of those options will help the student who thinks carrying books, going to class, and studying are a “white thing.“ Let’s be clear, some families and students aren’t capable, but we have to look at individual cases to determine who is and who isn’t capable, and we assist on an individual basis. We can’t assume that because a student says, carrying a book to class is a “white thing;� that it’s a teacher’s problem. Wrong, OK? Sure, we have to look deeper to see if that attitude is masking other issues, but sometimes we will find the only thing some such students need is firm guidance by those who have the authority to deliver firm guidance. Rather than go into the homes to work with students and families, it’s probably easier to blame the teacher and the system for a few more years, find a few improvements, and wait for the next “crisis� in education; the kind of recurring crises our nation has had in education since the Russians launched Sputnik back in 1957. Meanwhile, just about every educator and parent already know that regardless of what a teacher does in the classroom, individual students have to apply themselves as well. Let’s start. w

Crowded seedlings are prone to disease. Pea Pests Bait for slugs and cover the crop with netting to keep out the crows. These intelligent birds watch you plant the seeds, read the label that says the peas will spout in 10 days, then arrive on that very same day to pluck each seed from the soil. Of course, these feathered thieves wait until they hear the shower running or watch until your car drives away so you never catch them in the act.

Like tomatoes and sweet corn, home-grown 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. There are several types of dwarf or bush peas perfect for small gardens, and there is a shortgrowing sweet pea you can even grow in a window box. Imagine swooning from the sweet fragrance every time

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.

QFC and You Can Make a Difference in Young Lives. At QFC, young people are a vital asset to our business. Our courtesy clerks play a key role in our stores: keeping our checkstands stocked and sparkling, greeting customers, helping them find items and, of course, taking their orders to their cars. A beginning job as a courtesy clerk has served as a springboard to a career as a store manager or company executive for untold numbers of our company leaders, past and present. We value the contributions of our youngest associates and know the potential they possess to lead productive lives as adults, and we are proud to sponsor two charities this month which are each working with care to bring out the potential in the youth they have chosen to serve. Treehouse in King County provides a variety of programs to support foster children and Trillium Family Services in Oregon focuses on helping youth with behavioral and mental health issues. Treehouse began through the efforts

of volunteer caseworkers in the late 1980s and didn’t hire paid staff until 1993. The goal was and is to develop programs to meet the unique needs of children in foster care. As its website notes, “Treehouse makes a difference in their lives by helping with school, fulfilling key material needs and paying for extras that are, for most kids, just a regular part of growing up.� There are six programs for foster kids that help them with things like clothing and school supplies, taking part in activities like driver’s education, going to summer camp, getting tutoring and preparing for college. Trillium Family Services was formed in Oregon in 1998 and has an integrated treatment system with a statewide reach to serve more than 5,000 children and families each year. The children who are treated at Trillium Family Services have mental and behavioral health issues. These can include: severe depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia,

aggressive behaviors, attention deficit disorder and other conditions. Trillium offers specialized therapeutic programs with age-appropriate activities to provide cost-effective care that can help to teach teens and young adults the life skills necessary to cope with their mental health challenges and become successful adults. QFC is proud to partner with Treehouse and Trillium Family Services to raise awareness about the important

work they are involved in and to help raise funds to support the services they offer to their young clients.

Imagine that you and your trusted canine companion are enjoying a relaxing Sunday afternoon on the couch, ready to prop up your feet and snooze for a bit. Sensing there may be a nap involved in this snuggle session, your furry friend makes himself comfortable as well. And yawns. You scrunch your face to brace yourself for what you know is coming next‌ dreaded doggie breath! While there can be many causes for your pet’s breath to be less than pleasing (do you actually know what the last thing he ate was?), one of the most common causes is dental disease. Dental disease is more aptly termed periodontal disease. Periodontal disease affects approximately 80% of the canine pet population 3 years of age and older that are not receiving proper dental care. In addition to bad breath, other signs of periodontal disease include red gums (gingivitis), tartar, loose teeth, missing teeth, broken teeth, drooling, or difficulty eating (to name just a few). As the periodontal disease progresses, the infection in the mouth can spread through the blood stream to other organs, such as the heart, liver, kidneys, lungs, and occasionally the nervous system. There are two things you should know. The first is that many pet owners have difficulty understanding how their dog can have significant periodontal disease and still have a hearty appetite. Consider the fact that most cases of advanced periodontal disease have been reaching their current state over a period of months (or

years), allowing our pets to adapt to chronic mouth pain. Also, consider that not all dogs chew their food before swallowing it; hunger can be a strong motivator to encourage eating in spite of oral discomfort. The second observation is that dogs brought in for dental consultation because of poor appetite often have severe periodontal disease, which may have caused an infection in another organ, such as the liver or kidneys. In those cases, the poor appetite often stems from organ malfunction due to infection, rather than mouth pain. Now for the good news. With proper dental care, periodontal disease is absolutely preventable. There are numerous preventative care products available to help with your pet’s dental needs. The best and most assured way to ensure your pet has a healthy mouth is daily tooth brushing using a pet-appropriate toothpaste. For those not inclined to use this tried and true method, may elect dental chews, dental diets, water additives, and dental cleanings (performed at your veterinarian’s office). When selecting a dental care product, I suggest that you look for products that contain the VOHC (Veterinary Oral Health Council) seal. The majority of pets should have a dental cleaning performed – first to remove the current tartar and treat any current dental disease – and then be placed on a preventative program. So‌the next time your canine companion strikes you with a doggie breath yawn, skip the milk bones and consider scheduling a dental consult with your veterinarian instead.

Kentwood junior Cassidy Meyers wrestles from the top position in the 118 pound title match against Burlington Edison’s Taylor Graham. Meyers won the match 4-1 and left Mat Classic XXIV with a state crown after finishing sixth and fourth the past two years. STEVE BARGELT, For the Reporter

FOLLOWING IN HER SISTER’S FOOTSTEPS Kentwood senior Cassidy Meyers finds inspiration en route to state title BY KRIS HILL khill@covingtonreporter.com

K

entwood junior Cassidy Meyers was inspired at Mat Classic XXIV. Inspired by her older sister, Jolene, who won a state wrestling title four years ago and is currently serving in the United States Marine Corps. “She really looks up to her older sister,� said her

father, Steve Meyers, who is also her coach at Kentwood. And she was inspired by Shelby Lee, her best friend and wrestling sparring partner who attended Kentridge, who was killed in a car wreck on Dec. 28, 2010. “She is one of the reasons I wanted to go out there and kick butt,� Cassidy said. With that inspiration in the back of her mind, Cassidy had a goal: make it

through the semi-finals. “To get past that semifinal was a big relief,� she said. Then Cassidy went one step further Feb. 18 and won the whole thing. Cassidy, who is the fourth of six children with three older sisters and two younger brothers, began wrestling when she was 6 years old. “My brothers were wrestling,� she said. “I thought it was really cool. I told my dad I wanted to join in. We always did things together.� As a freshman she

finished sixth in the girls tournament at the state championships at the Tacoma Dome. A year ago she finished fourth. “This year I didn’t really feel like it was state,� Cassidy said. “I kind of had a short season.� Cassidy finished the season with a 26-3 record. Typically she wrestles closer to 40 matches so her mindset was a bit different coming into the state championship tournament. And she had different results than in years past. This year at the end of

Mat Classic, the official held up her hand when the 118 pound final was over, signifying she was the winner and a state champion just like her sister. “I look up to her in so many ways,� Cassidy said of Jolene, who is four years older. “She doesn’t believe it, but, she’s a big inspiration.� Cassidy may not even have wrestled in high school were it not for Jolene, her father Steve, said. “Coming into high [ more FOOTSTEPS page 13 ]

XXXDPWJOHUPOSFQPSUFSDPNtXXXNBQMFWBMMFZSFQPSUFSDPN [ FOOTSTEPS from page 12] school, she wasn’t sure if she wanted to wrestle,� Steve said. “Then Jolene won.� Going into the final against Taylor Graham of Burlington Edison, Cassidy said, she didn’t know much about her opponent other than she had a few moves coupled with significant upper body strength. “All I knew was that it was a new day, a new match and if I wanted it, I had to go after it,� she said. “She was hard to turn. Most of the match It was me trying to turn her and not succeeding due to her upper body strength.� Cassidy was able to get a 4-1 lead pretty quickly though the escape point she gave up was on a mistake early on when she tried a move she hadn’t executed in a match before. Despite Graham’s strength, Cassidy was able to hold off her opponent as she worked from the bottom position in the third period, so she could hold onto her lead and the state crown. That she won a state title, however, didn’t sink in right away. “It actually didn’t hit me until the next morning,� she said. “Because it didn’t feel like state, it felt like another match. I woke up the next morning and went, ‘I’m a state champion. I did it.’� Not a surprise, though, given that Cassidy probably had other things on her mind. She plays premier level soccer and is also a member of the Kentwood girls soccer team. Soccer is something all of the Meyers kids have done. Cassidy’s mom played in college. “I’ve been playing soccer all my life,� she said. “I’m pretty sure my mom put a soccer ball at my feet as soon as I started walking. I know I’m going to have a soccer ball at my feet because it’s in my blood.� She is a member of the Kent Crusaders Rugby team, a

more recent passion than wrestling or soccer, but one she has taken to quite quickly. “It sucked me in deep,� Cassidy said. “I really fell for it. It was the intensity of soccer but you could hit people and play with your hands. If you’re an athlete you can be turned into a rugby player. And the form is exactly the same as a double leg take down.� In fact, Cassidy has got a date with the United States Women’s U-20 National team tryouts this weekend in Atlanta. Rugby has also given her a sense of having a second family. “I hope I can take rugby as far as I can,� she said. On top of that, she is an excellent student, maintaing a 3.75 grade point average. “She’s a good kid,� Steve said. “She’s very athletic. She’s got good grades. She does what she’s asked. She’s doing good things with her life right now.� During the course of this wrestling season, both Steve and Cassidy agree she matured in all the ways she needed to, which set her up to succeed at Mat Classic. “For the most part, she is pretty focused,� Steve said. “I’d like to see her intensity at workouts be better. It’s been up and down the past four years. She’s grown a lot in the past two years.� As far as her technique on the mat, Steve said, Cassidy is rock solid. A conversation during the first tournament of the season, which is where she got most of her matches, Steve said he had a conversation with his youngest daughter. It was important, he told her, to focus and listen to her coaches so they could help her stay calm during a match as well as to look to them for guidance. It must have worked as Cassidy went on to have a strong season and went into Mat Classic the top ranked girl in her weight class in the state, according to Washington Wrestling Report.

Now that she knows how to win a state title, Cassidy would like to go one step further than her older sister, Jolene, and win a second one. Steve said Cassidy will have a target on her back heading into next season. “Next year what I would like to see from her is come out and finish (high school wrestling) strong,� he said. “It’s easier to reach the top than to stay on top. One of the things we’ve talked about is everything you want, you’ve got to earn it. Win or lose, I’ll be happy if she gives 100 percent.� Cassidy, who her dad described as quiet, is laid back when she’s off the mat but is focused and serious on it during a match. And there’s no doubt she will continue to be inspired by Jolene and Shelby Lee. “It’s my goal to take state (again),� Cassidy said. “I just have to take it to the next level practicing and try to stay healthy.� Jolene, who is stationed in the Phillipines, heard the news about her younger sisters’ triumph through other family members. “I know that she’s proud that I’m following in her footsteps and holding up her honor,� Cassidy said. “She let let me know how proud of me she is no matter what beforehand.� And Cassidy doesn’t see herself as in her sister’s shadow. “I see it as a challenge,� Cassidy said. “I strive to be as strong and as mentally prepared as my sister.� Someday, long after she’s done wrestling, playing soccer and rugby, Cassidy plans to be an entrepreneur. “I want to hopefully go to Arizona State and major in business management,� she said. “Then go to culinary school for pastry then open my own bakery. Baking is my release.� Whatever Cassidy does in the future she has plenty of inspiration to draw on.

qualified him for the Class 4A state meet. For him, fate couldn’t have picked a better date, as it was also his 17th birthday. “I wanted to qualify for state for sure because I had a meet earlier in the year where I didn’t qualify,� he told the Reporter back in 2011. “So I really waned to. It wasn’t my primary thing, but, I had it in the back of my mind that I would possibly break the school record.� In the post season a year ago he took first at the South Puget Sound League meet with a score of 328 points and eventually took seventh a state with 314 points. Still, Dehnert said he was determined to break the school record again, this time for a six-dive event. As the season progressed, however, he said his score continued to hover just below the record of 269 points. “That was kind of frustrating,� he said. At the last six-dive meet of the season, he was able at last to tally a score of 273 points. “It was interesting, because it was the last chance to break it and I wasn’t really worried about it anymore,� he said. In 2011, Dehnert told the Reporter he hoped to accomplish two things

his during his final swim season: Finish in the top five at state and break the 400 point mark, which was nearly 70 points higher than both his personal record and school record at the time. A year before, he wouldn’t have even thought it was possible. But he had the determination and persistence to make it happen. At the state meet in Federal Way Feb. 17-18, Dehnert secured third place with a score of 377.05 points, a 63 point improvement over his performance a year ago. During the preliminaries, however, he put together a 407.35 seed score, setting another school record. “I’m happy with how I did,� he said. “It was a very close meet. It’s just fun.� Although the season is over, he still competes for his club twice a week and hopes to join the team at Principia College, a Division III school in Elsah, Ill. Not too bad for someone who climbed on the diving board four years ago to satisfy his curiosity.

Colon cancer is cancer of the large intestine. Rectal cancer is cancer of the last six inches of the colon. Together, they are referred to as colorectal cancer, a disease which has become the fourth most common form of cancer in the United States. Colorectal cancer typically strikes people older than age 50, with the odds of developing the disease increasing with age. Some symptoms include blood in the stool, continual cramping or bloating, fatigue, and unexplained weight loss. If there is a family history of the disease, an intestinal condition like Crohn’s Disease, or if a patient smokes, uses alcohol excessively, and is mostly sedentary, a doctor may decide to begin screening earlier than the typical age of 50. A low-fat, high-fiber diet may help prevent colorectal cancer. For colon cancers that have not spread to distant sites, surgery is usually the primary or first treatment. Additional chemotherapy also may be used. If you’re 50 or at high risk for colon cancer, now would be a good time to schedule a colonoscopy, which is a test that allows your doctor to look at the inner lining of your large intestine. During a colonoscopy, tissue samples can be collected and abnormal growths can be removed. To schedule a consultation, please call Southlake Clinic at (253) 395-1972. Our primary care providers are part of a multispecialty physician network. You can find us in Covington at 27005 168th Place SE. We are now open on Saturdays. 588117

For Tahoma, the transition started in 1994, when the first technology plan was created by the Tahoma School District Technology Committee (TSDTC). It was revised in 1997 and 2000, and was later updated in 2003. The TSDTC is an internal committee within the school district which sets a vision and goals for the School District in terms of the use of technology in education instruction. The TSDTC receives recommendations from a community tech advisory committee. The Tahoma Board of Directors approves the tech plans each summer,

while the state renews them every three years. Among the goals met since the technology plan was first introduce was teacher-student access to computers, Internet, staff email addresses and a district-wide standard for software/ hardware configurations. Walt Szklarski, Instructional Technology Coordinator, worked as a teacher at Cedar River Middle School six years ago. Then he had to schedule his class four days in advance to be able to use the computer lab. Teachers were also lucky to have a computer in their

classroom. The TSDTC, he said, has helped the school district keep up with technology by anticipating what will be essential for classroom instruction four years down the road, which included the need for student and teacher access to computers. In 2005, every teacher in the Tahoma School District was given a laptop. A year later, wireless Internet was available in all of the schools. But the biggest change came when voters approved the district’s second tech levy in February 2010, which over four years will bring $10.9 million. Through it, the Tahoma School District

was able to purchase a total of 2,500 netbooks for student use — with another 300-400 to be available by the end of this school year — creating portable labs which can be brought to any classroom. The netbooks, Szklarski said, generally retain a three to four year lifespan before they are replaced. Additionally, every administrator within the Tahoma School District has an iPad. It’s a far cry from when the schools were purchasing surplus computers and monitors from the Kent School District for $1, according to Jamie Mercer, a seventh grade special education teacher at Tahoma Middle School.

have Internet access. In Jeana Haag’s P.E. classes, the iPad, with its Internet access, can provide video instructions for various activities out on the track, or record a student’s test to show their form or posture. The teacher can also immediately record their times and statistics on the spot, which aids in accuracy. “From the teacher’s side, management and presentation are easier,� Jeana Haag said. “We don’t have to worry about getting grades in, getting things down from our clipboards. It’s a big time saver for us.� Betlach said that is helps not only the teacher, but the students be more creative. While working on building in-class telegraphs, they use the iPads to record their work, which are then used to build presentations on Keynote. They can also use the iPads to access informa“They had definitely seen better years,� Mercer said. “But that was all we had. They did the job. We didn’t need the high powered software.� Now Mercer has a laptop, an up-todate computer, as well as an interactive whiteboard in her classroom. She said that technology levy helped the school district transition from using technology as a tool to making the classroom instruction revolve around it. “Without the passage of the tech levy by the community, none of this would have been possible,� Mercer said. “It makes it a heck of a lot more fun for the kids. It makes my job a lot easier.�

tion online, such as NASA’s website or use GoogleEarth when studying geography. “It’s not a cookie cutter, here’s a test type thing,� he said. “They have more control on exploring their learning.� Part II will examine how students use technology as tools in the classroom in a wide variety of ways. It will be published in the March 16 issue of the Reporter.

How Tahoma got money for tech tools

At Glacier Park Elementary fifth grade science and social studies teacher Brandon Betlach was able to obtain iPads for the students in his classroom due to a grant proposal he promoted. He began teaching the students how to use them in late September and now uses them as a part of science experiments. Among the most noticeable changes technology has brought to the classroom has been in communication and organization. Rather than have to spend hours transcribing the grades of pencil-written homework assignments or test results onto a computer, netbooks and laptops, in addition to online assignments, enable teachers to spend more time teaching. Mercer said that it also allows teachers to direct their students from home if needed due to an emergency or illness as long as they

schools also has advantages and disadvantages. “I believe that technology is extremely beneficial for students,� said Rebecca Keene, teacher and program specialist for the Kent School District. “I think it is difficult to argue otherwise after reading the research behind increased technology access for students and the trends in other countries to providing Internet access as a basic human right. Many of the disruptive behaviors we see that come from technology are similar behaviors to what we might see in an environment with less technology. Students who are bored, unengaged, unmotivated, or disruptive may act inappropriately in any situation, whether they have increased access to technology tools or not. We do see that students who

XXXDPWJOHUPOSFQPSUFSDPNtXXXNBQMFWBMMFZSFQPSUFSDPN [ TAX from page 1] members asked staff to investigate the possibility of adopting the tax exemption in August. Mueller stated other cities such as Seattle, Tacoma, Federal Way among others have adopted this tax exemption and the exemption is only applied to the structures on property but land owners still pay taxes on the dirt itself. “We identified three zones in Covington where we think that can take place,â€? Hart said. “The town center zone, the mixed housing and office zone then the new high density residential zone we created called R18‌ (were areas) where we thought the tax exemption was reasonable.â€? Some cities have adopted the code, Mueller said, but projects have not been proposed or built yet while Seattle and Tacoma, explained Hart, have developments which have received the tax exemption. Once the eight or 12-year exemption period ends, the city would begin receiving tax on the structures, as well as the tax on the land. Developers who apply for the exemption can be required, according to the state law, by the city to add amenities within those zones. And in the town center zone, Mueller said, the residential units must be combined in a mixed-use project which also has commercial and office space. Typically those are in three or four story buildings with the businesses on the ground floor while apartments or condos would be located above. In the town center zone, Mueller added, there has to be at least four residential units for it to be considered multi-family while there must be a diversity of offerings. In other words, there can’t just be a building with nothing but studio apartments, there must be different floor plans available for the residential units. And it’s important, Mueller said, to clarify what definition the city is using for “affordable housing.â€?

Based on a definition laid out by King County, the ordinance allows property owners to apply for a 12 year exemption for affordable housing if at least 20 percent of the units built are rented to low or moderate income households. A low income household is defined having an income

at or below 100 percent of the median family income adjusted for family size in King County as reported by HUD, Mueller explained in a follow up email. A moderate income household is defined as a household having an income at or below 150 percent of the median family income adjusted for

family size in King County. Affordable rent, then, is defined as households whose monthly housing costs, including utilities do not exceed 30 percent of the household’s monthly income. “A three person household making at or below 150 percent of King Coun-

person family making 100 percent of median Income ($78,200) for $1,955 per month (including utilities).� Hart added that the city is offering the exemption “to add to the economic development toolbox to encourage residential development in one of those three zones.�
