State budget cuts to city less than expected BY STEVE HUNTER shunter@kentreporter.com

State budget cuts to the city of Kent were “less painful” than what they could have been considering the budget shortfall dealt with by legislators. Kent will need to slash about

$600,000 from its budget because the state decided to keep all of a liquor excise tax for one year rather than sharing the usual portion with cities. That decision will cost the city about $300,000 the second half of this year and another $300,000

the first half of 2013, said Michelle Wilmot, city community and public affairs director, in her report April 17 to the City Council about the 2012 legislative session. “That’s the one cut we saw,” Wilmot said. “But with as much as $10 million at stake, the $600,000

is less painful.” Mayor Suzette Cooke and Chief Administration Officer John Hodgson met with department heads to try to figure out where to make budget cuts worth $600,000. City staff expects to have a proposal soon about where to make

cuts this year and next year. “There isn’t the wiggle room we usually have,” Cooke said. “We don’t have any cushion.” City officials were concerned the state might take away the nearly $4.9 million the city gets [ more BUDGET page 4 ]

Police officer shoots, wounds man reportedly stealing vehicle BY STEVE HUNTER

A 46-year-old Kent Police officer shot and wounded a 35-year-old Federal Way man after responding to a report of a man in a stolen car at about 8:30 a.m. Tuesday at the Arbor Chase Apartments, 1615 W. Smith St. The driver started to leave the

area and was confronted by an officer, according to a Kent Police media release. At that time the officer attempted to stop the man and shots were fired by the officer. “He was shot once in each leg,” said Stan McCall, spokesman for the Federal Way Police, which has taken over the shooting investigation since

the incident involved a Kent officer. Paramedics transported the man to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, where he was treated for a broken leg but is expected to recover, McCall said. After the officer fired shots, the man drove away and crashed into an occupied car near the apartments. The two people in that car were treated and released at a local hospital. The driver then headed about 1 mile north and abandoned the vehicle behind a warehouse in North Kent. Officers found the man and

[ SHOOTING from page 1 ] May 3 at the Norm Maleng Regional Justice Center in Kent, according to the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office. Slade remains in custody at the county jail in Kent with bail set at $250,000. Slade is charged as an adult because anyone ages 16-17 is considered an adult under state law if charged with a serious violent crime, including first-degree assault.

Kent Police arrested Slade the evening of April 19 after a standoff at a house in the 24500 block of 104th Avenue Southeast. The teen eventually exited the house and surrendered to officers, which included a SWAT team. The 19-year-old is expected to fully recover from his injuries despite being shot three times. According to charging papers, a dispute started the afternoon of April 14 among Slade and several others while riding a Metro

bus. Most of them knew each other. The arguing continued as they all departed the bus near the Jack in the Box. Two agreed to settle the argument by going up the street to 110th Avenue Southeast to fight each other. The charging papers did not indicate what the males were arguing about beyond something regarding “a past issue.”

A proposal to the King County Flood Control District Board to pay for removal of sandbags along the Green River might move a bit faster than initially anticipated. Kjristine Lund, executive director of the King County Flood Control District, said in an email Tuesday she is trying to get a special May meeting date of the board rather than waiting until the next scheduled meeting in July to consider a $7.5 million plan to remove sandbags by the fall along 26 miles of the river in Kent, Auburn and Tukwila. "I am trying to get a mid-May board meeting (a special meeting) so that bidding can occur to be ready for implementation before the rainy season," Lund said. "However, there is not a meeting scheduled for May yet." The sandbags have lined the trail for nearly three years for extra flood protection because of damage in 2009 to an abutment next to the Howard Hanson Dam on the upper Green

River. But the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced last fall it can operate Hanson Dam at full capacity, which means the sandbags are no longer needed. Cities now face the problem of how to pay to remove the bags without extra millions sitting around to pay contractors for the expensive job. The King County Flood Control District Advisory Committee, a 15-member body composed of mayors and council members from eight cities, has recommended the flood district board pay for 75 percent ($5.7 million) of the removal cost with the cities of Kent, Auburn and Tukwila paying 25 percent ($1.9 million) over a sixyear period. The flood district board is composed of the nine members of the King County Council. It is a special-purpose government that funds and oversees flood protection projects and programs. The board is funded through a county-wide property levy of 10 cents

Eleven families were displaced by the fire that broke out at about 4 p.m. April 20 according to a Kent Fire Department media release. There were no injuries and the displaced residents were allowed to move into unoccupied units at the complex. Investigators were unable to determine the cause of the fire, but it did not appear to be intentionally set. Three stories of one building were engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived at the complex. They were able to stop the fire from spreading to nine other units in the building. Red Cross assisted families who lost everything in the fire.

took him into custody. A records check showed the man has felony warrants for two counts of possession of a stolen vehicle. McCall said the man is under guard at the hospital by King County Sheriff ’s Office deputies because of the warrants. The Kent officer has 21 years of law enforcement experience. He has been placed on paid administrative leave, a common step after a shooting.

The streamlined sales tax measured passed by the Legislature changed the state in 2008 from an origin-based system for local retail sales tax to a destination-based system. That cost Kent a lot of tax money with so many businesses in the city that ship or deliver goods to other areas of the state.

per $1,000 assessed value or about $40 per year on a $400,000 home. That brings in about $36 million a year for projects. The advisory committee proposal would delay specific projects planned by the flood district board in the Green River basin in order to pay for removal of the sandbags. Each jurisdiction in the county also receives a small portion of the flood district property levy to pay for any flood control projects within each city. Under the proposal, Kent, Auburn and Tukwila would use that money to help pay for sandbag removal rather than other projects for the next six years. Lund addressed the advisory committee’s recommendation at a meeting Monday of the King County Flood Control District Executive Committee, which is composed of four members of the county

up for that lost revenue. The state agreed to the annexation sales tax rebate to encourage cities to annex urban areas. Kent gets a portion of the state sales tax collected in the city to help pay for annexation costs. Kent also received a big boost from the 2012 Legislature when it approved $7 million out of the capital budget to help fund improvements to the Briscoe/ Desimone levee along the Green River. “Getting this money given the economy is huge,” said Wilmot, who added the $7 million levee funding ranked as the largest single expenditure out of the capital budget. State Sen. Joe Fain, RAuburn, helped secure the levee funding. “The levees matter a great deal to homeowners and businesses who worry about flooding throughout

the Kent Valley,” Fain said. “These investments help ensure the integrity of the levees and move us down the path toward certification. Eventually this will help lower flood-insurance premiums in the area and keep the valley’s economic engine strong.” The capital budget allocates funding for building and construction projects statewide. The Briscoe/Desimone levee is part of the city’s ongoing Green River Levee Improvement Program. The levee protects portions of Kent, Renton and Tukwila from flooding and is between South 180th Street and South 200th Street. City officials hope to start work on the Briscoe/Desimone levee in the spring of 2013 or later depending on additional funding for the estimated $15 million project.

council. The committee will decide whether to forward the recommendation to the full board. “I was asked to prepare the resolutions necessary for a decision which will include a budget resolution and another authorizing the executive (Dow Constantine) to enter into agreements with the Green River cities (Auburn, Kent, Tukwila,)” Lund said. “The direction was to have these documents as vehicles for voting by the committee. “I will likely draft them to reflect the advisory committee recommendation as a starting point, though the committee may amend them for different scenarios.” Lund said she is aiming for a special May 7 flood district executive committee meeting to consider the sandbag removal proposal so the committee can forward the measure to the full board possibly later in May. King County paid for the

installation of the sandbags in the fall of 2009 through the flood control district by delaying planned projects. Kent received $2.59 million from the county to place nearly 17,000 sandbags along 12 miles of levees to heighten the levees and help protect the city from flooding in case the thendamaged Hanson Dam could not hold back enough water. No heavy rainstorms struck since the January 2009 storm that damaged an abutment next to the dam, so the bags were never tested. Lund said she expects to know by next week whether any funds remain from the sandbag installation project. “There was some discussion that there is a small amount of funding remaining from the original budget to install the sandbags,” Lund said. “We are researching that amount which might help off-set the costs.”

The dangerous combination of teens, texting and driving has emerged as a bigger problem on local and national roadways. Rising statistics of crashes and injuries, even fatalities, suggest a need for more public awareness, peer-to-peer education among teens and involvement from institutions, notably schools.

Pesticides applied only to parking lot Last week a resident wrote to the Kent Reporter with concerns about the use of pesticides at Clark Lake Park and the potential risks and impacts to the park and park users. I want to clarify that we did make an application the week of April 12, but only within the small parking lot off of 240th. This is done to control weeds and invasive plants within the sidewalk, curbs and parking lot area. We did not and do not, however, apply pesticides anywhere else in the 130-acre park. The city practices integrated pest management principles in all of our parks. Specific to Clark Lake Park, our primary pest management goal is to control the invasive plants and weeds. Throughout the park, our primary control methods remain mowing and many hours of manual removal by

city staff and numerous dedicated volunteers. Great progress has been made in recent years. The parking lot remains vulnerable, though. Invasive plants such as scotch broom, canary reed grass and blackberry often start JOIJHIUSBÄ? DBSFBTBOEXPSL their way into the property from there. The application in the parking lot strategically targets this small yet vulnerable

area and better protects the rest of the natural area from the encroachment of invasive plants. By being strategic in our practices, we have reduced our use of pesticides throughout the park system and continue to seek further reductions as we continually refine our practices. I hope this additional information on our approach to pesticide use helps address some of the concerns voiced by .T-POH

[ LETTERS from page 6 ] mama, “Stay away from storm drains – they are dark dungeons of death for any unsuspecting duckling.” But when you hurry across a five-lane highway with your bothers and sizers, it’s easy to become disoriented by the loud threatening noise of motor monsters coming at you. My 12 brothers and sisters and I were lucky. The compassionate citizen who notified the fire station and the firemen who rescued us are wonderful humans. But my mama returned home last night from a meeting of concerned Ducks Against Drain Disasters. There she learned that this terrible situation has been going on for a long time in Kent. Ever year ducklings fall into the death dungeons (storm drains), and many do not survive.

[ GUEST OP from page 6 ] According to the White House, individual liberty matters less than the law’s big benefits, which are supposedly just around the bend. The view from the states, however, is decidedly less optimistic. The problems with the PPACA are so severe that we feel called upon to join together on behalf of our two organizations and enumerate the specific harmful effects of the law. The PPACA imposes new burdens on states like Washington in three dangerous and damaging

Even though in the past, Samaritan citizens, city utility workers and police officers have come to their aid. It is terrifying for ducklings to be trapped beneath the highway and traumatic for mother ducks to lose their babies in this way. Ducks Against Drain Disasters would like to suggest a solution to this ongoing problem. Why not add screens to the storm drains? The expense should be minimal. Then in the future, community workers wouldn’t have to be dispatched to the drain site when they are needed elsewhere. Traffic showdowns wouldn’t occur, and mother ducks could nestle their babies beneath their wings at night with peaceful sighs of contented relief. – Laurie Saunders, Lucky-to-be-alive duckling No. 13

ways. First, it costs our businesses with new taxes. Second, it costs our residents with higher premiums. Third, it costs our state, threatening to reduce access to care for Medicaid recipients on the losing end of strained budgets. Tallying these cumulative economic burdens explains and justifies today’s stubborn public opposition. Rather than controlling costs, the law controls lives – even to the point of worsening them. Consider the costs to businesses, which are already holding down employment in anticipation of new

One option for removing sandbags

Change in tone with ShoWare?

Regarding the removal of the sandbags written on April 13 by Steve Hunter, there was mention of the relative cost associated with the removal and obvious concerns for the negative impact it would create for the city budget. I’m not sure how this would work with regard to unions and city workers, however, the thought came to me how you might do this relatively free. Is there anything wrong from a legal standpoint to utilize the inmates at the Regional Justice Center to help with the removal? They could certainly benefit in many ways by being outside, getting some exercise and perhaps paid a minimum wage if appropriate. Could be a win for the city and the inmates. – James De Donato

After reading Steve Hunter’s story on the Kent City Council’s recent approval of an economic study of the ShoWare Center (April 20), it occurred to me the council’s current rationale for owning an event center has changed over the past five years. As an example, see Reporter stories from July 7 and 21, 2008 (www.kentreporter.com/ news/22948384.html www.kentreporter.com/news/25600309. html). The theme in 2008 seemed to be “no worries.” The City of Wenatchee can attest that hope is not a plan when applied to an event center. What is Kent’s plan for future years if large subsidies for the ShoWare Center need to continue? – Don Villeneuve

legislation. The Joint Committee on Taxation finds that the law will be responsible for a total of $400 billion in new taxes and fees in the next seven years. Even the Obama Administration’s own Department of Health & Human Services (via the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services) admits the law will push health care expenditures higher. Though the Obama Administration continues to deny it, the calculus is simple: more health care spending equals more expenses on alreadystrapped businesses.

What about the impact on our fellow citizens? The law has raised, not lowered, premiums. Consulting firm Aon Hewitt estimates that premiums in the individual market are some 5 percent higher this year because of the health care law. More is to come. The law wreaks havoc on our state budgets. In the first 10 years, it will increase Medicaid costs as people who currently qualify for Medicaid but opt out of the program are forced to enroll. While the U.S. Supreme Court focused on the key issue of whether PPACA’s individual

Its intended reforms raise taxes, increase premiums and balloon budgets while businesses, individuals and states struggle to gain the upper hand on their finances.

www.kentreporter.com rules, risks for drinking, drug use, texting, talking on the cell phone and risky driving are reduced. “Research shows that good parenting really pays off when it comes to reducing crash risk for teens,” said Jonna VanDyk, occupant protection manager for the Washington Traffic Safety Commission (WTSC). Parents can play an important role, but not every teen connects with mom or dad. That’s where the WTSC – with partners like State Farm Insurance – is stepping in. An ongoing project in that partnership is challenging teen drivers to question themselves. “Could you be persuaded to put your cell phone in your trunk while you’re driving?” the project asked. As expected, the reaction was pronounced. “They really squawked at the idea. No way,” VanDyk said.

[ KLAAS from page 6 ] And the age group with the greatest proportion of distracted drivers was the under-20 group. In our state, from 2006 to 2008, there were 224,503 drivers involved in injury crashes, of which 20,205 of the crashes (9 percent) were caused by driver distraction of all types. Concerned officials in the public and traffic safety business consider a driver talking on a cell phone as impaired as a driver with a .08 blood alcohol level; a driver who is texting is as impaired as a driver with a .16 BAC. If you’re a parent of teenage drivers, as I am, this is alarming stuff. “It’s a significantly growing problem,” said Sgt. Robert Constant, supervisor of the Kent Police’s traffic unit. “It’s a challenge, especially with a generation that’s so techy, with the urge to text.” While difficult to quantify, texting drivers are a prevailing problem. As Constant observed: “It’s generally an upturning trend with everything from the introduction of the iPhone … to a continual barrage of media that’s available, and the attempt to communicate.” State and local leaders are accelerating the need to address the problem. The problem with and answers to distracted teen driving, as state traffic officials see it, begins at home. Data from the Washington Healthy Youth Survey shows when parents are more involved in the lives of their teens, and enforce clear, consistent

Problem persists Officials have found that teens understand the act is wrong, but are not inclined to do anything about it. The problem evolves around the teens’ compulsive use of the cell phone, for many the source of their inner-circle communicative world, much of which is nonverbal. That addiction becomes a significant problem when the phone buzzes or lights up while they are occupied behind the wheel.

“It creates a sense of urgency or compulsiveness” when driving to respond to it, VanDyk said. “There is that urge to respond while driving.” Peer pressure, not wanting to ignore friends, leads to texting and driving. And a new study shows that 75 percent of young adults think there’s nothing wrong with that. “If this is the way you communicate with your peer group, you’ve become kind of desensitized as to how much that is taking away from whatever else might be demanding your attention,” VanDyk said. Peer-to-peer education is one way to attack the problem. The WTSC and State Farm, for instance, have gone back to school. There have been discussions, assemblies and other awareness projects. They have teamed up to provide teens with an opportunity, an incentive to take action while earning a $500 grant for a school group such as cheerleading, a sports team, choir or club. High schools can get involved. Teens need to help each other here. It is a good place to start. It is time to make it a priority. Hands-free devices are not a cureall. And teens don’t always do what their parents demand. “Teens listen to other teens, more so than us,” VanDyk said. “They can persuade fellow teens that texting and driving is dangerous.” To learn more about the programs, visit www.wtsc.wa.gov.

Court hearing for boy accused of rapes rescheduled for third time BY STEVE HUNTER shunter@kentreporter.com

A hearing scheduled in King County Juvenile Court in Seattle to determine whether a 16-year-old Kent boy charged with rape should be tried as an adult has been rescheduled for the third time. “The defense requested more time to prepare for the hearing,” said Dan Donohoe, spokesman for the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, in an email. The boy had been scheduled to be in court Monday, April 23. The defense attorney also received requests to the judge to reschedule hearings in March and February for more time to prepare for the case. The latest hearing date is May 21, Donohoe said. Prosecutors charged the boy Nov. 10 with two counts

Correction Meeker Middle School eighth-grader Dekker “Dutch” O’Farrell received

of first-degree rape and two counts of first-degree kidnapping with sexual motivation in connection with attacks on a 17-year-old girl and a 19-year-old woman on separate nights in late October on the East Hill along Kent-Kangley Road. Prosecutors will request that the boy be tried as an adult. The boy attended Kentwood High School in Covington, where Kent Police arrested him Nov. 7. If convicted in Juvenile Court, the boy would be incarcerated up to his 21st birthday, according to prosecutors. The minimum sentence in adult court is 28 to 36 years in prison with a potential maximum sentence of up to life in prison. Because the boy was 15 when the alleged rapes occurred, the Juvenile Court first handled the charges. A Juvenile Court judge must order adult prosecution for the boy and decline the case, which would send it to King County Superior Court.

KentHOPE had a record number of people attend their latest weekly planning meeting. “We had a large turnout that included individuals from neighborhood associations and several people who were new to the issue of homelessness and eager to participate,” said Pat Gray, KentHOPE member. “Everyone who attended is very committed to the goal of establishing a day center and volunteered specific skills to help during the

process and after the day center is established.” April 19 was the first general meeting of KentHOPE held in the evening. The executive committee, made up of Chris Gough and Mike Johnson from Union Gospel Mission, Daniel McDougall-Treacy of Valley Cities, Rev. Bill Kirlin-Hackett of the InterFaith Task Force on Homelessness and nine others from various faith communities in Kent, meets in weekly planning sessions. At this meeting, KentHOPE members discussed their vision of establishing a day center and eventual overnight shelter to

provide hope and assist those who are homeless in pathways to stable housing and a more secure future. The group has been seeking another location for their day center and a shelter for the homeless ever since the Kent City Council declined the use of the Kent Resource Center to house their needs. “Right now we are looking for another location for our day center and eventual shelter,” Gray said. “We are working with a realtor and viewing those that seem promising.” KentHOPE has 19 congregations represented either on their executive committee, general meeting

Bears girls, boys teams beat K-M to stay undefeated in SPSL North Division

BY TJ MARTINELL

tmartinell@maplevalleyreporter.com

KENTLAKE HIRES NEW BOYS HOOPS COACH Kentlake has hired Godfrey Drake to take over as head boys basketball coach, according to Bruce Rick, the school’s athletic director, who made the announcement Wednesday. Drake has worked as an assistant coach at Green River Community College the past four years. The Mississippi native had previously coached AAU basketball in his home state. He played college hoops at Southern Mississippi University, a Division I program, followed by a short stint in the European League.

Tahoma’s boys and girls track teams continued a double undefeated league meet streak with wins against Kent-Meridian on the Bears’ home track April 19. The Bears boys defeated last year’s 4A state champions 78-67, while the Bears girls won 105-44. Both Tahoma teams are undefeated in league meets. Tahoma coach Gary Conner stated in a telephone interview that he expected it to be a close meet. “They were good wins for both teams,” Conner said. “It turned out to be in our favor. I knew we were going to have to perform really well just to win. For us, we had to do well in all our areas.” Conner said the meet against Kentwood on Wednesday would give more of an indication of where Tahoma stands in the league. “What we’re hoping is to get through Kentwood,” he said. “If we can get through Kentwood (Wednesday)… hopefully (Tahoma has a shot at a) league title. Tomorrow’s meet is going to be tough for both boys

and girls so it’s going to be a lot of fun.” Bears senior Aaron Davis took home two first places in the 100 meters and the shot put, running a time of 11.53 seconds and throwing a distance of 48 feet and a half inch. His 100 meter time tied his personal record. Junior Jacob Larsen won the 800 meters with a time of 2:04.11. Senior Tyler Ward took first in the mile with a time of 4:45.99, a three-second improvement over his previous personal record from the March 21 meet against Mount Rainier. Sophomore Riley Campbell won the two mile with a time of 9:55.50. In field events, junior Dallas Hayes won the discus after throwing it 128 feet, 2 inches. Senior Joshua Benson won the javelin after throwing it 138 feet, 7 inches. Sophomore Deshon Williams won the high jump after jumping a height of 5 feet, 10 inches, while fellow sophomore Tucker Mjelde won the pole vault at 11 feet, 6 inches. Leading the Tahoma girls was Olivia Ranft, who won the 400 meters, the long jump and the triple jump. She ran the 400 meters in 1:00.42, a one second

Tahoma junior Elizabeth Oosterhout runs alongside Kent-Meridian senior, Alexia Martin, in the two mile. Martin took first with a time of 11:19.20. TJ MARTINELL, The Reporter improvement from her previous personal record. She long jumped 15 feet, 7.5 inches and triple jumped 32 feet, 6 inches. Junior Elizabeth Oosterhout won the 800 meters with a time of 2:25.07, a three second improvement over her personal record from the March 29 meet against Kentlake. Junior Paige Hammock took first in the 100 meters with a time of 13.22. Freshman Abby Atchison won the mile with a time of 5:35.30.

Junior Savanna Haverfield won both the 100 hurdles and the javelin, with a time of 16.01 and a throw of 103 feet, 11 inches respectively. Senior Cassidy Richmond won the 300 hurdles with a time of 49.56. The 1,600 relay team, comprised of Cheyenne Haverfield, Madeline Smith, Ranft and Richmond, won with a combined time of 5:30.21. In the field events, junior Kylie Eager won the shot put after throwing it a

distance of 33 feet, 4 inches. Senior Nadine Hyde won the discus after throwing it 113 feet, 1 inch. Senior Chelsea Muskelly won the high jump after a vertical leap of five feet. Royals senior Jarey Suiter took first in the 200 meters, crossing the finish line at 23.23. Sophomore Quincy Carter won the 400 meters after running a time of 52.84, a personal record.

Kentwood, Kentlake suffer tough losses in fastpitch BY KRIS HILL khill@maplevalleyreporter.com

The battle for the top spot in the South Puget Sound League North Division continued among Tahoma, Kentwood and Kentlakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fastpitch teams in the past week. On Monday, Thomas Jefferson knocked off Kentwood in a 10-inning thriller while Tahoma put together a 6-1 victory on April 18 over Kentlake for the Falconsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first league loss of the season. Jefferson scored early and held onto a 1-0 lead until the bottom of the seventh when Rachel Burr hit the ball between first and second base that drove in the tying run for Kentwood. But, the pitching duel between Conqueror freshman Kendall Goodwin and Raiders hurler Rocky Hale continued, as the Jefferson defense was able to hold Kentwood. The Conks struggled to put down bunts in the bottom of the 10th when international tiebreaker rules come into play â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a runner is on second base at the start of the inning â&#x20AC;&#x201C; while an errant throw to

third base at the top of the 10th pushed the Raiders into the lead. Bailey Rundleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bunt moved Michaela Patton over to third base for Jefferson. Katie Jackson, who pitched the final inning in relief for Hale and picked up the win in the circle, bunted and was able to reach when a throw to third base went over Bailey Marshallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head which allowed Patton to score. While everything came together for Jefferson it all fell apart for Kentwood, explained Conks head coach Jason Wisor in an email interview. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think yesterday was the perfect storm of what has been the perfect storm season,â&#x20AC;? Wisor wrote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With all the rainouts and in game cancellations this team has been frustrated that more games have not gotten in. The girls are working hard and getting better, it just so happens that yesterday we could not execute.â&#x20AC;? He credited Hale and Goodwin for pitching well. Wisor said with nine games left on the schedule the team will need to focus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yesterday both pitchers pitched well and both teams

[ TRACK from page 14 ] Junior Abu Kamara took first place in the 110 hurdles and the 300 hurdles, crossing the finish line with a time of 15.38 and 42.20 respectively. The 400 relay team, comprised of B.J. Phillips, Henry Hammond, Kamara and Suiter, took first with a time of 44.20, a mere .55 second ahead of the Bears team. The 1,600 relay team also won, with Suiter, Hammond, Phillips and Carter running a combined time of 3:38.87. In field events, Tyler Hammer won the long jump with

struggled to adjust to the zone established by the umpire,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our goal will be to continue to play the best game we can. We need to eliminate the errors and execute in situations when they happen. Our goals are still in reach and we fully intend to accomplish them.â&#x20AC;? Kentwood hosted Tahoma Tuesday, and weather permitting the Conks were scheduled to get in five games this week. Meanwhile, through Monday, Tahoma had won three straight including a tough game against Auburn and a major morale booster in beating Kentlake on April 18. Kentlakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only lead of the game came in the first inning against Tahoma when Kellie Nielsen scored on an error. In the bottom of the first, Tahoma tied it up when Hayley Beckstrom hit a long single to drive in Halle Elliot, then the Bears locked down defensively while their bats got hot in the third and fourth innings. Jordan Walley and Beckstrom drew back to back walks. Morgan Engelhardtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s single drove Walley in to

make it 2-1 Tahoma in the bottom of the third then Beckstrom scored when Lauren Maulden reached first on an error to make it 3-1. Elliott ripped a single through the middle infield then stole second base. Walley stepped up two batters later and send the ball to the center field fence for a double that drove in Elliott. Beckstrom dropped a single into shallow right field behind first base and Walley scored to make it 5-1. Tahoma tacked on one more run in the bottom of the sixth when Amanda Allisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s single brought in Molly Lathrop, who slapped a single by the short stop then stole second base, to make it 6-1. Lathrop finished the day going 2-for-3 at the plate with a run scored and two stolen bases, Walley was 1-for-3 with a walk, two runs scored and an RBI while Beckstrom was 2-for3 with a single, a double, a run scored and two RBIs. Engelhardt went 1-for3 with an RBI, Lauren Maulden was 2-for-3 with a single and a double. Mariah Hill got the win

a leap of 20 feet, 6 inches. Hammond won the triple jump flying 39 feet, 6 inches. Royals sophomore Kariona Micks won the 200 meter race, crossing the finish lone at 27.18. Senior Alexia Martin won the two mile, crossing the finish line at 11:19.20. The 400 relay team, comprised of Micks, Jenica Rogers, Deedra Patterson and Stephanie Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Hara, took first with a combined time of 51.34. Junior Juliana Adams won the pole vault after vaulting 8 feet, 6 inches.

in the circle, pitching a complete game, giving up five hits â&#x20AC;&#x201C; all singles â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and one walk. A day earlier Tahomaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defense saved a close win against Auburn. Center fielder Jena Waler hurled a perfect throw to home plate to get the runner for Auburn coming in for the tying run in the top of the seventh to seal the 4-3 victory. Kentridge bounced back on April 18 from a 11-3 loss to Kentwood a week earlier with a 6-0 victory over Auburn Riverside. Kayla Andrus led the Chargers offensively as everything came in pairs for her. Andrus finished the day 2-for-3 at the plate with a pair of singles, two runs scored, two stolen

bases and two RBIs. Abagail Bellin went 1-for-3 with a triple, a run scored and an RBI while Ashley Conradi was 1-for-4 with a single, a run scored and a stolen base and Hannah Overall was 1-for-3 with a triple, two runs scored, an RBI and a stolen base. Lizzet Dominguez got the win in the circle for Kentridge, pitching a complete-game one-hitter while striking out six. Kentridge couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t keep up the moment Monday, however, losing 4-2 to Auburn. Andrus was 1-for-4 at the plate, Bellin went 1-for2 with a single, a stolen base and an RBI while Bri Drury led the Chargers, batting 2-for-3 with a pair of singles and a run scored.

According to one recent survey, only slightly more than one-third of Americans have a will and fewer than half have any estate-planning documents in place. While very few people are comfortable with thinking about dying, it certainly helps to have a will. A will helps surviving family members cope with a most difficult period in their lives, and it designates an executor to carry out important decisions. Otherwise, people who die without a will (intestate) must rely on the court to distribute the deceasedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s property according to state law. This is a prospect that may be even more distasteful to most than drawing up a will, in which case, this important matter should be addressed. I understand how unpleasant it can be to spend time contemplating your own death. I will provide you with the understanding you want as well as the thoughtful counsel that you need to be certain your wishes are carried out after you are gone. In addition to wills, I also provide representation for legal issues involving estate planning, probate, elder law, Medicaid planning, and real estate. If you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment, please call (425) 227-8700. I have offices conveniently located in Renton and Kent. Committed to you and the community.

Kentridge tennis girls excel BY SARAH KEHOE skehoe@kentreporter.com

Despite some setbacks, the Kentridge girls are 4-1 in South Puget Sound League play. They lost to Kentwood in their last match despite a good effort. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have some really good tennis players this year and once they really start to believe in themselves, good things will happen,â&#x20AC;? said coach Jennifer McIntosh. The weather has slowed the team down. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has been a tough year with all of the rainouts. We are only at the halfway mark and we start playoffs next Friday afternoon,â&#x20AC;? McIntosh said.

Police capture driver after high-speed chase stopped at the top of South 180th Street, the Kent officer went to the Wendyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and confirmed it was the same car he had pursued. The driver of the Honda told the officer, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even racing,â&#x20AC;? but then declined to say anything else about the incident.

A man driving an aqua green Honda Civic CRX through Kent streets at speeds of more than 80 mph during a police pursuit thought he had lost the patrol car when he pulled into a Wendyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drive-thru restaurant in Renton. Within moments, Renton Police surrounded the car at the drive-thru lane in the 17800 block of 108th Avenue Southeast at about 2:30 a.m. April 14, according to the police report. Kent Police arrested the man for investigation of eluding an officer. The driver escaped the Kent officer after about a 3-mile chase that took only a couple of minutes. But Renton Police had listened to the pursuit on the Kent Police radio station and figured the man might head up the South 180th Street hill after he left northbound Highway 167. A short time later, they saw the aqua green Honda at the Wendyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. The incident started with a 911 call to report about 20 to 30 vehicles getting ready to race in a parking lot in the 19000 block of 62nd

Avenue South in North Kent, a well-known area for weekend street racing. As a patrol officer headed northbound on 62nd Avenue South, he noticed two cars coming toward him. A Honda Civic had its headlights off but then the driver turned on the lights as he passed the patrol car. The officer turned his car around and activated his emergency lights in an effort to pull over the car. The driver of the Honda then sped up and went eastbound on South 196th Street. The driver ran a red light at South 196th Street and West Valley Highway, reaching speeds estimated at more than 80 mph. The officer continued to pursue the Honda, which sped southbound on the East Valley Highway and then eastbound on South 212th Street. The officer saw the car take the northbound onramp to Highway 167, but then lost sight of the vehicle and ended the pursuit. After Renton Police radioed they had the car

Police arrested a man for investigation of third-degree assault after he reportedly punched a Metro bus driver in the nose at about 5 p.m. April 17 downtown near Central Avenue and Meeker Street. Several officers later drew their guns and ordered the man to the ground near a Kent Transit Center bus shelter after reports that he might have a gun, according to the police report. Officers discovered the man had a black plastic gun in a satchel he carried on his shoulder. The incident began when a bus driver called 911 to report he had been punched by a passenger. The driver and another passenger then forced the man off the bus. The man held a plastic gun to the bus door before he fled on foot.

The incident happened at about 10:13 p.m. April 17 outside of a house in the 27800 block of 130th Avenue Southeast, according to the police report. Officers responded to a domestic violence call and saw a man with a rifle who fled on foot and then jumped a fence into the backyard of a home. Police eventually caught the man coming out of a yard in the 13100 block of Southeast 279th Place. The man no longer had a rifle as officers surrounded him and ordered him to the ground. The man refused to go to the ground so an officer used a Taser to shoot the man with darts in the ribs and leg. The man fell forward onto his forearms and officers handcuffed him.

A large work party came to embrace and spruce up Northwest Harvest. About 300 volunteers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and their families â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from Comcast took advantage of a sun-splashed Saturday to help beautify inside and outside of Kentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main food distribution center, 22220 68th Ave. S. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The place looks beautiful,â&#x20AC;? said Deborah Squires, community engagement director for Northwest Harvest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it without them. Not only did they bring the beauty bark and the paint, they brought the muscle.â&#x20AC;? The effort was part of Comcast Cares Day, one of the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest single days of service by a corporation, with more than 2,200 volunteers around the state working on a dozen projects. During their visit last Saturday, volunteers in Comcastâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s service project

Volunteer Merrill Swanson of Comcast shovels bark at Northwest Harvest last Saturday. About 300 volunteers pitched in to help beautify Kentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main food distribution center. MARK KLAAS, Kent Reporter packaged 19,000 meals for distribution throughout Washington, Squires said. In all, volunteers generously gave an estimated $24,000 of free labor. Comcast brought along soldiers from Joint Base Lewis-McChord to chip in. Volunteers cleaned the warehouse, swept and wiped down food storage racks. They painted

the interior of the conference room and warehouse offices. Teams performed landscape duty, pulling weeds, raking flower beds, spreading bark and picking up debris. They finished the morning by conducting a youth art project, making thank you cards and poster boards. Squires appreciates the

assist, especially now, with Northwest Harvest and supporting outlets faced with limited staffing and high demand for food. Northwest Harvest and its food bank networks produce 1.6 million meals a month for the hungry throughout Washington. To learn more about the nonprofit group, visit www. northwestharvest.org.

The fillers: Brightly colored begonias come in sunset colors and you can also find impatiens, geraniums and verbena that bloom in shades that range from fiery orange to lemon yellow.

Spring is the time of year when the earth blooms, and color fills the landscape. We are lucky enough to garden in western Washington with a mild climate that allows bountiful blooms and vivid color almost year round. If you want to color your world with more beauty, for less money, invest in some fast-growing annual plants and dig in. Annuals may only live one year but they party hearty and live life in the fast lane â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and a colorful life is much more exciting. Color Families for Soothing Compositions First, chose a favorite focal point plant or your favorite color family. Now build a color theme using different blooming plants

www.kentreporter.com [ BINETTI from page 18 ] Add fillers: Here is where you need the color contrast. Use vivid gold blooms of Goldilocks Rocks or mini marigold plants against the taller, darker focal point. Lime green could also be a bold contrast to deep purple. There are new mini petunias called Calibrachoa that have bicolored blooms of contrasting colors. Pretty Much Picasso is a new hybrid with vivid purple blooms outlined with lime green. This petunia is pretty much a spectacular plant due to great color contrasts. Many coleus plants also have colorful contrasts spilled all over their leaves like a painter’s palette. The spiller: As a groundcover plant or to spill from the sides of a

pot, the lime green Sweet Caroline sweet potato vine would make a great contrast to the deep purple tones. If you use petunias with bicolored blooms the solid color of a foliage plant provides a stunning backdrop for the big show. Color Punches to Fight off the Darkness We do have a lot of gray days in our gardens and our beautiful evergreens can cast dark shadows onto the landscape. Use white and silver plants to sneak in a knock out punch of color: Use white impatiens, white lobelia and white begonias for a planting bed in deep shade. The color white next to any bright color will amp up the intensity of the hue so be sure to include white bloom-

ers in your mixed displays for more vivid brights. For sunny areas plant droughtresistant white alyssum or any silver-leaved annual such as Dusty Miller. White geraniums planted in black pots make a fine impression that says “simple elegance.” An all-white flower garden can be dramatic and will show up best against a dark evergreen hedge or house color. Covering the Ground with a Grand Display of Color Make this the year you cover a sunny slope with drifts of hot pink petunias or vast stretches of bright red verbenas. New varieties of groundcover petunias and spreading verbenas make sensational swaths of blooming color more af-

fordable than even before. You only live once and having a yard that really does stop traffic should be on everyone’s bucket list. Or you could take that bucket, add some drainage holes and contain yourself, along with your petunias and verbenas. Planting more flowers is a gift to the neighborhood, the bees and butterflies and your beauty-seeking soul.

Stores must have at least 10,000 square feet to sell liquor under the initiative, but the state-run stores are excluded from that rule. Initiative 1183 directed the liquor board to auction the state store properties at their current location. However, the state leases the properties, not owns, creating a unique circumstance for the auction. Successful bidders earned the exclusive right to apply for a liquor license at the current location within its current footprint. All state store properties are below the 10,000 square foot threshold established by the initiative. Successful bidders will need to secure a lease with the property landlord. If they are unable to secure a lease, they may re-sell their right or request an alternative location within a 1-mile radius of the existing location.
