County moves closer to approving sandbag removal BY STEVE HUNTER shunter@kentreporter.com

A proposal to pay for the removal of giant sandbags along the Green River in Kent, Auburn and Tukwila moved one step closer. The King County Flood Control District Executive Board recommended Monday to the Flood District’s Executive Committee a $5.8 million plan to remove 26 miles of

sandbag barriers lining the river, according to a county media release. The full board is expected to vote Monday, May 14 on the proposal. The county would pay about 75 percent of the removal cost with the cities of Kent, Auburn and Tukwila paying 25 percent. “These sandbags served their purpose, but now that the increased flood risk no

long exists, it is time for them to come down,” said Executive Board Chairwoman Julia Patterson, who also represents the Green River Valley on the King County Council. “By moving this proposal, we hope trail users will soon be able to enjoy walking and biking without the eyesore of sandbags.”

Crews placed giant sandbags in 2009 along the Green River in Kent near the Riverbend Golf Complex. King County, with the help of the city, is looking to remove them soon.

King County prosecutors have charged a 42-year-old Shoreline man with second-degree promoting prostitution in connection with a 21-year-old woman who said she had worked as a prostitute for the man for about four months. Kent Police arrested Joseph Anthony McDaniels on April 30 in his black Ford Expedition outside of the Norm Maleng Regional Justice Center in Kent after the woman notified authorities about violation of a no-contact order she had against McDaniels. McDaniels had driven the woman to the RJC to drop a no-contact order between them. Instead, once inside the woman called police about McDaniels. The woman told detectives she

saw a chance while visiting the RJC to get away from McDaniels. She said she had known him for about one year and had been his girlfriend for six months. McDaniels Prosecutors charged McDaniels on May 3 with second-degree promoting prostitution and violation of a domestic violence court order. He allegedly made as much as $2,000 per month from the woman working as a prostitute for him, according to charging papers. McDaniels is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday at the RJC. He remains in custody at the RJC's county jail. Bail was set at $200,000. According to court documents,

McDaniels was sentenced March 23 for fourth-degree assault against the same woman. After his release April 3, he contacted the same woman and forced her back into prostitution. He threatened to shoot up her house and beat her up if she did not work for him. He also threatened that if he ever went back to jail because of her he would tie her and her brother to a tree in the woods and she would have to watch while he tortured and killed his brother. And then he would torture her and she would have to beg for her life. Kent Police first contacted McDaniels in November 2011 in a dispute over money involving a suspected pimp at a Kent trailer park. He told officers he contracted with an escort company to retrieve money from clients who refused to pay for services.

No arrests were made. The woman who was the escort was the same woman who turned in McDaniels outside the RJC. In December, Auburn Police arrested McDaniels for fourth-degree assault against the same woman. Kent detectives later determined the woman had been living with McDaniels since he got out of jail April 3. He reportedly took her to Portland, Ore., to work as a prostitute the weekend of April 20. She did five tricks in one day with customers and turned over all of the money to McDaniels. Detectives also found out McDaniels placed ads on www. backpage.com that featured photos of the woman. more story online‌ kentreporter.com

Two men were taken into custody Wednesday by Kent Police following an early morning theft and car chase that exceeded speeds of 100 mph and was captured on Washington State Department of Transportation traffic cameras. The incident started shortly before 4 a.m. Wednesday when a Kent Police sergeant on patrol saw

a vehicle parked alongside a bank of mailboxes in an industrial park in north Kent, according to a Kent Police media release. As the officer approached, the car drove toward the officer’s vehicle, and then fled onto the West Valley Highway in an effort to lose the officer. The officer was able to catch up to the fleeing vehicle and followed the driver to southbound Highway 167. Once on Highway 167, the driver accelerated to speeds in excess

of 100 mph in an effort to elude trailing police units. The driver of the car, a 20-year-old Federal Way man, eventually lost control of his car while attempting to navigate an exit ramp at Highway 18 in Auburn. The vehicle spun for a short distance whereupon the driver regained control. Officers used this opportunity to move alongside the vehicle and initiate a PIT maneuver, disabling the Honda sedan against a concrete

barrier. The driver and his passenger, a 42-year-old Seattle man, were taken into custody without further incident. Both men are presently in the city of Kent jail. Both were arrested for investigation of theft, while the driver also faces potential charges related to his effort to elude police and possession of narcotics. A quantity of mail was recovered from the vehicle and will be returned to the victims.

Police arrest 2 after car chase that reaches 100 mph


[4] May 11, 2012 [ SANDBAGS from page 1 ] The removal costs would be shared between the District and the cities, with the District paying approximately $4.4 million and the cities of Kent, Auburn and Tukwila paying approximately $1.4 million. Any Flood Control District project delays caused by shifting funds will be applied to projects within the Green River basin. Reagan Dunn agreed with the proposal. “It is great news that the

www.kentreporter.com sandbags along the Green River are one step closer to being taken down,” said Dunn, chairman of the Flood District Executive Committee. “After years of concern about flooding in this vital economic corridor, the removal of the sandbags from the Green River Valley sends the messages that the valley is open for business while increasing public access to the public parks and trails in this region.” 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. The King County Flood Control District Advisory Committee, a 15-member body composed of mayors and council members from eight cities, recommended the flood district board pay

for 75 percent of the removal cost with the cities of Kent, Auburn and Tukwila paying 25 percent over a six-year period. The flood district board is composed of the nine members of the King County Council. It is a specialpurpose government that funds and oversees flood protection projects and programs. The board is funded through a county-wide property levy of 10 cents 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. 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. In Kent, the delayed repair project would be the Lower Russell Road Levee between South 231st Way and Van Doren’s Park, said Mike Mactutis, city environmental engineering manager, in an email Tuesday. The Lower Russell levee work is scheduled to start this year in Kent with major work in 2014-16, according to a King County spokeswoman. Project design work would be delayed until at least 2017 and construction until 2018, pushing about $5 million of work six years away. Kent estimates its 25 percent cost to remove the sandbags and repair the

Green River Trail at about $1.6 million, Mactutis said. The city’s share would come from either the city’s storm water drainage utility fund or the city’s share of the flood district fund, Mactutis said. Kent has spent that flood district money on Green River levee projects since the fund became available in 2008. 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.

New ways to seek more shelter For victims of domestic abuse, finding a safe haven remains a difficult challenge. Shelly David, a domestic violence legal advocate for the City of Auburn, knows as much. Auburn, Kent and other South King County communities struggle to meet the needs of those caught in the throes of domestic violence. Are there enough shelters and services to help victims? “No, there’s not,” David said. “The thing I come across is I need something right now (to house a DV victim) … and nothing right now is open. It’s just the reality.” A recent National Network to End Domestic Violence survey revealed that on one single day, 1,080 victims of domestic violence were in emergency or transitional housing provided by a domestic violence program in the state. On that same day, the number was 36,332 for victims across the country. The study reported that safe housing was the service most requested by victims calling these programs. To address the situation, community advocates and architects are working together to identify how emergency shelters can be designed to best meet the needs of victims and their children. The Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence (WSCADV) and architects at Mahlum – a Pacific Northwest architecture firm – recently launched Building Dignity: Design Strategies for Domestic Violence Shelter. The idea is to improve shelter spaces, with strategies ranging from how to redecorate an existing space to building a shelter from the ground up. “It is critical for domestic violence shelters to provide residents with physical safety,” said Margaret Hobart, WSCADV staff lead on the project. “But that is only one component of healing from abuse.

the influence is an all-toocommon crime committed by folks who have no criminal intent nor any intent to hurt, much less kill,

another person. But the line between a DUI and vehicular homicide doesn’t exist.

A first-time DUI can become a vehicular homicide in a fraction of a second, simply dependent on chance. As a young lawyer, I started out in the misdemeanor unit of a public defender office, where I represented hundreds of folks over the years charged with DUI. They were most often very nice, middle class working people, moms and dads, businessmen and women, your

As a citizen, I am glad to say that Jay Inslee is concerned about more than just education funding. Mr. Inslee is concerned about the restoration of our economy here in Washington state. “Too many jobs have been lost, too many homes have been foreclosed upon, and too many families are one last paycheck away from financial ruin,” he said. “But if there’s one state I believe can turn its economy around, that can harness an innovative and creative vision for the future, it’s our state.“ Jay proposes to do this by focusing on small businesses, information and communication technology, agriculture, our military, the aerospace industry, life sciences (such as biotechnology) and clean energy. Mr. Inslee is a man of many talents. At a press conference recently, public school children were standing in front of the [ more LETTERS page 7 ]

friends and neighbors. As I gained more legal experience, I moved into the felony unit of our office, representing people charged with more serious crimes, including DUIs that were vehicular homicides because the “buzzed” (intoxicated) driver had caused an accident and someone had been killed as a result. The human tragedy was emotionally overwhelming. My first vehicular homicide case forever changed my perspective on DUIs. The families and friends of the victims were devastated.

During this time of moving forward as a state, we can use a governor with a strong, quick reaction to crisis and the talent to make a difference. – Cindy Prescott

Reichert casts the right vote Reasonable people, including Rep. Dave Reichert, voted against it. But the U.S. House of Representatives still passed an amendment recently that would make it harder for presidents to protect the places we care about as national monuments. Since being signed into law by President Theodore Roosevelt in 1906, the Antiquities Act has been used by eight Republicans and eight Democratic presidents to protect important public lands as national monuments including the Statue of Liberty, the Tetons and the Grand Canyon. Here in Washington, local residents are asking the president to consider protecting 1,000 acres of

land currently owned by the Bureau of Land Management in the San Juan Islands as a national monument. Many of us enjoy this breathtaking place on family vacations. Now is not the time to limit the options to protect these and other precious lands. With Congress focusing on politics instead of protecting our heritage, a presidential monument designation makes a lot of sense. Just like Rep. Reichert’s vote. – Tom Reeve

From the time of my hatching, I was warned by my mama, “Stay away from storm drains – they are dark dungeons of death for any unsuspecting duckling.� But when you hurrying across a five-lane highway with your brothers and sisters, 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 (DADD). 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. 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. DADD 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 slowdowns wouldn’t occur, and mother ducks could nestle their babies beneath their wings at night with peaceful sighs of contented relief. – Respectively submitted by Lucky-to-be-alive (Duckling No. 13) (as dictated to Laurie Saunders)

Disson Skating signed a promotional agreement last fall with the federation. “Steve had such a successful event here (with Pandora) and a very memorable experience in this building so that event paid dividends,� said Tim Higgins, ShoWare Center general manager, after the announcement May 4 that Kent would host Skate America. “Success breeds success is how it all came about.� Disson recommended the ShoWare Center to Bob Dunlop, U.S. Figure Skating senior director for events. A short time later, Higgins received a phone call from Dunlop. “Bob called up to see if we had dates available,� Higgins said. “We said we’d love to have you here, let’s make this work.� Laura Lee, president of Snohomish County-based Production Sports and spokeswoman for Skate America, said Kent had several selling points to become the host city. “The Disson group spoke highly of the building,� Lee said. “It needed to be the right size, a good community and to have close access to a host hotel that is a Hilton property because it is the Hilton Honors Skate America.� SeaTac’s The DoubleTree by Hilton Seattle Airport will serve as the host venue for Skate America.

Brightening up the garden THE GARDENER

Bonfire Begonia Bright Orange, Bodacious and Bountiful I love this new angel wing begonia because it heats up our gray days. Small plants become large specimens in weeks and the dark green leaves make the perfect background for the arcing stems of orange blooms, attractive to hummingbirds and humans alike. Beauty is one thing, but the Bonfire Begonia is also aflame with good manners and a laid back attitude. Full sun? No problem. Mostly shaded? You‘ll still get plenty of blooms. I have grown this adaptable plant in window boxes in the shade and in clay pots in the sun with great results. Here’s the best part about this fiery new plant. If, like me, you are a dirt-cheap gardener, in our climate the Bonfire Begonia can overwinter to return year after year. It grows from a tuberous root that if kept only slightly moist all winter Marianne Binetti

The second week of May is time for patio perfect and deck delight as outdoor living returns to western Washington. Many plants can now be left outdoors overnight especially if under the protection of a covered porch or patio. Don’t be fooled by a few sunny days and think that cold-sensitive basil, coleus, tomatoes or cucumber plants can handle nights outdoors. Even if we don’t have a late frost, it is the cold rains and chilly nights that will cause tomato plants to pout, cucumbers to crumble and basil to bail out on living. If you don’t have a protected warm spot for these heat-lovers wait until mid-June before you allow nighttime sleep outs. This week, color from exciting new plants is as close as your local nursery and here are three growing stars competing for the title of “New plant with the most colorful personality.”

(just drag your pots under cover and close to the house to keep them from freezing) will survive to sprout again year after year. It’s like this Bonfire Begonia has an eternal flame. New Ivy Geraniums These take the heat, with blooms that can’t be beat All members of the geranium family pump out the blooms in our climate and I am fond of those with decorative foliage, but for maximum color in window boxes and hanging baskets that must bear the heat of sunny afternoons, the ivyleaf geraniums are the easy answer. New crosses between the zonal and ivy geraniums have produced better branching and more flowers with names like the Galleria and Caliente series. If you don’t want to worry about combining different colors and types of plants into mixed containers but just want lots of blooming color for your sunny patio

or deck then plant this new type of geranium. Use ivy geraniums either in single pots or in groups of three to five to overflow your deck or patio with bountiful color. Calibrachoa Million bells with a thousand uses These little charmers

look like mini petunias and come from the same family but in our often rainy climate calibrachoa hold up better in the weather and offer much more interesting color combinations. The first of the calibrachoas were known as “Million Bells” and they woke up the plant world along with millions of container gardens with their striking, bicolored blooms of deep purple and carmine red

A MATTER OF TRUST

Featuring 92-year-old comedian and author

Because it is time-consuming and relatively costly, many people adopt various strategies to avoid probate (the legal process by which the estate of a deceased person is settled). One such vehicle, called the “living trust,” is so named because it is created when a person is alive. Holding property in trust poses no legal consequences while the creator of the living trust is alive. The property held in the trust transfers to the family and friends to whom it is left after death. The terms of the trust document, which is similar to a will, authorize the trustee to conduct this transfer, and probate courts have limited legal authority over property held in trust. Disbursing your estate is a complicated matter, whether you do it through a will or a living trust. You need sound legal advice before you make any decisions. I have more than three decades of experience dealing with all aspects of estate planning, including wills, trusts, and probate, as well as elder law and Medicaid planning. If you have any questions, call 425-227-8700 to make an appointment. I have offices conveniently located in Renton and Kent. Committed to you and the community.

[ KLAAS from page 6 ] programs also support survivors in reclaiming their independence, focusing on their relationships with their children, and reconnecting with supports to end isolation imposed by the abuser.” Mahlum – a participant in a program that connects nonprofits with architecture firms willing to do pro bono work – donated its time to join WSCADV’s efforts. They examined informa-

tion from interviews and focus groups with shelter residents of all ages and identified the design implications and strategies. Key details that emerged were around the need for security, privacy and quiet spaces where survivors can heal and parents can connect with their children. The design strategies developed have relevance for domestic violence programs across the country. Without reliable funding sources – whether public or private – such solutions

are based on collaborations. This is one way to move ahead. Many shelters are full today. More options are needed. In King County, there are four shelters in confidential locations to serve battered women. There is only one shelter that primarily serves battered women and their children in a non-confidential but secure location. “It’s a great idea because (DV victims) are just being put in places that are already established, and

sometimes that’s not the safest place to be,” David said. South King Countybased DAWN (Domestic Abuse Women’s Network) also likes the idea. The agency provides shelter, legal services and counseling for DV victims. Cheryl Bozarth, DAWN executive director, appreciates the new approach. The demand for shelter and services, she said, remains great, adding, “We have look at collaboration (for solutions).”

[ GUEST OP from page 6 ] The drivers were the same people who had DUIs, your friends and neighbors, but through a twist of fate, they were criminally responsible for killing another human being, someone’s grandfather or someone’s child and were put in prison for 2½ or 3½ years. And now, they will go to prison for 6½ to 8½ years. This new law should be a much stronger deterrent to reasonable people thinking about getting behind the wheel after drinking. A momentary distraction … a tenth of a second delay in reaction … impairment in judgment and perception … while maneuvering 5,000 pounds of swiftly moving steel and machinery. It’s a tragedy waiting to happen, dependent only on chance and fate. Good,

innocent people get killed. Good people, otherwise normal folks like your friends and neighbors and their sons and daughters, go to prison. Now, in Washington, for up to 8½ years. After leaving the public defender’s office, I began charging for my legal advice and representation. But here’s some free legal advice for you: Do not drive under the influence, not even “buzzed,” as you don’t have to be stumbling and wasted to have an accident. Have a sober friend drive you home. Your car will be there tomorrow. Call your mom or dad or son or daughter. Call a friend. Call a taxi. Walk. Very simply, I advise you: Do not drive if you’re under the influence of any intoxicating liquor or drugs. Mark Prothero is an attorney for Hanis Irvine Prothero, PLLC (hiplawfirm.com).

Olive Leaf Vascular Support

SAUCES: PESTO, BBQ, WHITE, TOMATO

Many of the validated benefits of the Mediterranean diet derive from heart-healthy compounds contained in the olive fruit, including the polyphenols tyrosol and hydroxytyrosol. When it comes to olive’s power to support blood pressures already within a healthy range, research shows the bioactive compound oleuropein is primarily responsible. The problem is that optimal amounts of oleuropein are not found in the fruit. The highest concentrations of oleuropein are contained in the olive leaf – a part of the plant that is neither readily available nor commonly consumed. Oleuropein normally degrades during standard food processing. For this reason, Life ExtensionŽ introduces Olive Leaf Vascular Support. Olive Leaf Vascular Support consist of a patented, standardized oleuropein extract using a unique, gentle-processing technique. The suggested daily serving of two 500 mg vegetarian capsules of Olive Leaf Vascular Support supplies optimal concentrations of the proprietary, highly-stable oleuropein, for maximum benefit. Caution: Consult your healthcare provider before taking this product if you are being prescribed antihypertensive medication.

She’s had the door closed on her so many times, sometimes we weren’t even sure where her next prescription would come from — or whether she’d have enough medicine to get through the month. You know, all that worrying can make your health even worse. That’s why I like to say that the Fidelis healthcare program was created just for us. Now, Deidra knows that her doctors and nurses really care about her, and I know when I have a question, I’ll get an answer right away, not in two or three weeks. I’ll always be there for my Deidra, but now with Fidelis, I know she’s getting the healthcare she needs…and that means everything to me.”

his time around Kentlake didn’t need a coin flip or a tie breaker game to earn the No. 1 seed out of the South Puget Sound League North. On Tuesday night Kentlake came back from a 3-1 deficit against Tahoma, with which it had shared the past two division titles, to win the game and the league crown 5-4, thanks to timely hits including a key double from senior pitcher Hannah Sauget. In the bottom of the sixth with one out and the bases loaded, Sauget ripped a double to the left field fence, driving in Libby Riehl and Larissa Henderson to tie the game. A Madie Brown sacrifice fly drove in Melissa Alberts, who scored the go-ahead run, while a Lexi Engman single to cen-

sophomore, wanted to put the bat on the ball. “All I was thinking was that I needed to get a hit,” she said. “I didn’t focus on the fact that we needed those runs. I just wanted to get a hit. It’s fantastic to help my team out that way … supporting my team as much as I can.” Kentlake got the early lead on a Kellie Nielsen double to right field which drove in Engman in the bottom of the first. Then Tahoma shortstop Hayley Beckstrom hit a solo shot over the left center field fence to tie it up in the top of the second. The Bears tacked on two more runs in the top of the third but it wasn’t enough against the Falcons on

senior night at Kentlake. And for Sauget, the win was especially sweet, given the rivalry between the teams. “It’s the best part of the season so far because we lost to them the first time,” Sauget said. “It’s great to win league not have to play a tiebreaker.” With the win Kentlake finishes the regular season 14-2 in league and earned a spot in one of the semi-final games in the SPSL tournament on Friday at Kent Service Club Park. Tahoma finished second in the division at 13-3 and will play on Thursday in the league tournament. Beckstrom’s walk off home run for Tahoma on May 5 set the stage for the

final two scenes of fastpitch drama. Beckstrom, who is a senior, smashed the ball over the left center field fence with two runners on in the bottom of the seventh to end a 5-5 tie against Kentridge. Tahoma improved to 13-2 in league thanks to the 8-5 win over Kentridge, who finished the season at 8-8, giving epic significance to Kentwood’s final game of the season against Kentlake on Monday as well as possibly making Tuesday night’s game between the Bears and the Falcons are one-contest showdown for first place. In the first showdown of the season, Tahoma beat Kentlake 6-1, which was the first South Puget Sound League North division loss for the Falcons. On Monday, Kentlake beat Kentwood 6-0 thanks to an offensive outburst in the bottom of the fifth inning when the Falcons batted around. Nielsen started the inning off with a long single to left field. Two batters later Riehl was hit by a pitch then Katie Habryle, who was 3-for-4 with an RBI, smacked a double to the center field gap. A run scored when Henderson reached on a fielder’s choice followed by a run scored when Melissa Alberts reached on a fielder’s choice.

BLACK TRIANGLES IN SMILES Dermal fillers aren’t just for the face. While dermal fillers have long been used to reduce or eliminate wrinkles in our faces, they also have a cosmetic dental use: black triangles. As we age, we often get recession of our gums. This can lead to loss of the tissue between our teeth. This can be corrected with or crowns, but sometimes this makes the teeth look too square. The hyaluronic acid used as dermal fillers can help fill in these gaps, leaving the shape of the teeth alone.

Kentridge distance runner sets a new school record BY SARAH KEHOE skehoe@kentreporter.com

Talon Abernathy set a record for the fastest time in distance running at Kentridge High School. The senior runner stopped the clock at 9 minutes, 21 seconds in the 3,200-meter race at the Shoreline Invitational, surpassing a 44-year-old school record. “I didn’t find out about it until the following Monday,� Abernathy said. “I was pretty happy that I was going to be able to leave some sort of enduring mark on Kentridge.� Abernathy has qualified for the state cross country meet the last two years. He

ran the Seattle Marathon for the first time last fall, finished the 26.2-mile test in 2 hours, 43 minutes. “That time was good enough to place Talon first in his age group and sixth place overall,� said Ryan West, Kentridge track coach. “That is definitely not bad for his first marathon.� Talon started running when he was around 9 years old. “My dad really got me started with running,� Abernathy said. “When I was younger, we would go out to the Soos Creek Trail on Saturdays and run for three or four miles.� Abernathy loves to run. “I get this runner’s high that is just godly,� he said.

“I think about literally anything and everything when I run. I like the chance to get out there by myself and analyze my thoughts.� In order to improve his time, Abernathy devoted most of his free time to training. “Running is kind of my life right now,� he said. “I didn’t want to plateau this season, so I raised my weekly mileage to about 70 miles for a couple weeks midseason. That kind of killed my midseason times but it was worth it because I’ve been dropping my mileage and I feel so fast now.� Abernathy said it’s more about hard work than talent when it comes to running

swiftly and effectively. “I can definitively say that I have some natural talent but I’m certainly not the most talented runner out there,� he said. “I didn’t place in any of my middle school track races and I really didn’t become competitive in high school track until my junior year, so there definitely was a buildup.�

West has been the coach who has helped Abernathy the most over the years. “Mr. West has really helped me define my goals as a runner,� Abernathy said. “My workouts have evolved a great deal during the years. I’ve run at Kentridge because coach spends an inordinate amount of time tweaking and refining our workouts,

even establishing an afterschool running club during the winter months. For the summer months, he takes the time to put together training plans for new and returning cross country runners.� Abernathy graduates from Kentridge this spring and plans on attending the University of Washington this fall.

[ BINETTI from page 9 ] accented with bright yellow centers. A new variety called “Dreamsickle� blooms in delicious shades of peach and orange. The garden gossip on the calibrachoa is they can’t handle growing in the damp ground and much prefer the perfect drainage of pots and containers. The smaller leaves and flowers make them rather dainty plants that are easily overpowered by the

more traditional petunias. Grow them in pots with foliage plants like heuchera and sweet potato vine or mix them with coleus for sophisticated combinations that will highlight their intensely colored blooms. There are plenty of more new plants available this week at local nurseries including new dwarf and ever-blooming hydrangeas, a new hardy fuchsia called “Flamingo Fever� and a rainbow of new heuchera varieties including

a trailing Tiarella called “Oregon Trail.� All are plants that love to grow in Western Washington.
