County approves plan to remove sandbags BY STEVE HUNTER shunter@kentreporter.com

The giant sandbags along the Green River in Kent, Auburn and Tukwila soon will be going, going, gone. Well, actually, it could be mid-summer before work starts

in Kent to remove the bags from along the Green River Trail. The King County Flood Control District’s Board of Supervisors approved Monday a $5.8 million plan to remove 26 miles of sandbags lining the river in the three cities. The flood control district will

pay approximately $4.4 million and the cities about $1.4 million under the plan, with the county funding 75 percent of the project. But the levees are too wet to handle the heavy equipment needed to get rid of the bags that weigh more than a ton. “The next move for us is to

determine when the ground is dry enough to get the heavy equipment on the levees so the sandbags can be removed safely,” Kent Mayor Suzette Cooke said in a phone interview Tuesday. “We should be able to start in midsummer. There’s a lot of moisture in the levees. They are not stable

enough.” Cooke said city staff found two city-owned properties to dump the sand that cut the costs of the sandbag removal in Kent from about $3 million to $1.6 million. The city will hire a contractor to [ more SANDBAGS page 2 ]

Panel passes ban on medical marijuana dispensaries, gardens BY STEVE HUNTER shunter@kentreporter.com

The majority of the Kent City Council apparently wants to just say no to medical marijuana dispensaries and collective gardens. Despite pleas at a public hearing from more than two dozen people who want the two

collective garden businesses in Kent kept open, the council’s Economic and Community Development Committee voted 2-1 Monday night at a packed City Hall to ban medical marijuana dispensaries and collective gardens from the city. Council members Bill Boyce [ more BAN page 8 ]

REUNION AT LONG LAST Kent worker reunites with long-lost sisters BY SARAH KEHOE skehoe@kentreporter.com

Auburn resident Jerry Wooliver no longer feels alone.

Wooliver, 67, recently met three half-sisters he never knew he had for the first time at the South King County offices of Total Living Concept (TLC), a Kent social service organization where he works in the office. Wooliver thought he was the

only survivor of a family that had been estranged for many years. “I was shocked and happy to see them,” Wooliver said of the April 28 reunion. “They are all such beautiful people with loving hearts.” Wooliver was born with cerebral palsy, a group of disorders that affect the brain’s motor control centers and often impairs [ more REUNITE page 9 ]

Sand also could be dumped at sites at the city’s Riverbend Golf Complex along West Meeker Street. “The public needs to know that the sand has no value to sell,� Cooke said. “It’s not the quality that has a retail value to it. It’s not something you want in a sandbox. And it’s really grimy sand from sitting there so long.� Cooke expects the city in the next couple of weeks to put out a request for bids by contractors to remove the sandbags. She did not know how long it would take a contractor to remove the

www.kentreporter.com sandbags once work begins. Many of the bags cover more than half of the path of the Green River Trail, a popular walking and bicycling destination prior to the placing of the sandbags. Sandbags that are about 3-feet high 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 sandbags were a necessary evil to provide extra protection to the Green River Valley cities during the increased threat of flooding,� said County

Councilwoman Julia Patterson in a county media release. “By removing the barriers, users can once again enjoy full access to the trail.� Flood control district projects planned to improve levees along the river are being delayed to pay for the removal of the sandbags. 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.

Rahr resigned in March to become director of the Washington State Criminal Justice Training Commission in Burien. Strachan, 47, became Chief Deputy of the King County Sheriff ’s Office in January 2011 after serving nearly five years as the Kent Police chief.

King County Sheriff ’s Office detectives arrested a Kent couple last Friday in connection with the murder of a 39-year-old Kent woman whose body was found in the trunk of a burned car May 6 near Black Diamond. The Kent man reportedly had a dating relationship with both women and all three allegedly use methamphetamine, according to probable cause documents filed Saturday in King County Superior Court. An argument among the three at the Kent couple’s East Hill home in the 25000 block of 128th Place Southeast reportedly led to the Grigsby killing of Denise Kay Grigsby. Kennon Gregory Fastrup, 30, and Michelle Lee Backstrom, 34, each were arrested for investigation of first-degree murder and first-degree arson, according to probable cause papers. Both remained in custody Tuesday at the county jail in Seattle. Bail was set at $1 million for each of them. Prosecutors were scheduled to file charges against the pair on Wednesday. Fastrup was in a dating relationship with Grigsby and also has an on and off dating relationship with Backstrom. On the evening of May 4 to sometime on May 5, all three were at Backstrom’s home when an argument broke out in the kitchen between Fastrup and Grigsby. Backstrom then entered the kitchen when the argument turned physical. The court documents did not indicate what the two were fighting about.

work on removing the sandbags. The sandbags are filled with sand, dirt or gravel and each weighs approximately two tons. The sand will need to be removed, and may be reused, according to county officials. Barriers that hold the sand and are in usable condition will be cleaned, properly folded for reuse and returned to the Corps, which loaned the barriers to the cities. The metal of any damaged barriers will be recycled and the linings disposed of.

Repairs, too Crews also are expected to have to make repairs along the Green River Trail because of damage from the sandbags sitting on it for three years. 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. 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 then-damaged 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.

Kent man, woman to receive free wheelchair ramps Volunteers from the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish counties will build 15 free wheelchair ramps for low-income disabled homeowners on Saturday, part of its 19th annual Rampathon event. Crews will assemble a new ramp for Kent’s Steven Wangsness, who has been wheelchair bound for five years. Rob VanHouten, of Powell Custom Homes and Renovations, will serve as ramp captain. Led by ramp captain Kris Quigley, a crew will build a new ramp for Kent’s Alicia Hernandez, a double amputee. Teams from the Master Builders Association have constructed 320 wheelchair

ramps since 1993. “Builder captains will lead their teams in constructing access ramps giving recipients the ability to get in and out of their homes with greater ease and flexibility,� said Art Castilleja, 2012 Rampathon chairman. “For many of them, it will be the first time in years they have not had to rely on family or friends just to get in and out of their homes.� Each ramp represents a unique challenge for the team as they adapt design and construction to the existing landscape and the recipient’s needs, Castilleja said. The Master Builders Care Foundation is the philanthropic nonprofit arm of the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish counties. Founded in 1909, the Master Builders is a trade association comprised of nearly 3,000 companies.

[8] May 18, 2012 [ BAN from page 1 ] and Deborah Ranniger voted for the ban. Jamie Perry opposed it. The proposed ordinance now goes June 5 to the full sevenmember council, where it appears to have the four votes needed to adopt the ban unless a couple of council members change their current stands. “We adopted this and it will go to the full council where we will talk about it,” Boyce said to the crowd at the public hearing. “Between that time and now I promise you I will be open minded and talk to people I need to talk to and visit some of these (collective gardens) places and that’s how I will make my decision. “But right now I strongly believe this is something that we as a council we need to talk about it. We’ve had a moratorium twice and we owe it to ourselves and to you to make a decision for the city of Kent whether it is right or wrong in your view. We no longer need to prolong this.” Boyce joined council members Les Thomas and Dana Ralph in a 3-0 vote April 23 on the Public Safety Committee to recommend that the Economic and Community Development committee pass an ordinance banning medical marijuana dispensaries and collective gardens from the city. That trio plus Ranniger would give the ordinance four votes. Ranniger said she favors a ban because federal law prohibits the use of marijuana, even though state law allows medical marijua-

I encourage people who want medical marijuana to change the federal law. As mayor I need to uphold the laws and the laws do not allow medical marijuana from a point of distribution.” Council members Dennis Higgins and Elizabeth Albertson are expected to oppose the ban on June 5. Both voted against the current six-month moratorium to ban medical marijuana dispensaries. They also have voted in favor of a zoning ordinance for collective gardens that failed to get a majority vote.

www.kentreporter.com [ REUNITE from page 1 ] development, movement and speech. Wooliver was taken from his mother and siblings when he was 5 years old and sent to an institution in Eastern Washington after the state determined his family wasn’t able to provide for him. Karen Newman of Lacey, Julie Martin of Mount Vernon and Janis MacPherson of Burlington were thrilled to meet the brother they found this year. “I was really excited to see him, to touch him and know that he was real,� Julie said. “I always had a feeling deep down that there was another one of us out there. There was a missing piece to our family’s puzzle and I feel like it’s all coming together now.�

Breaking bonds Sometime after the state took Jerry, his father split up with his mother, moved to the Midwest and remarried. His mother also remarried and settled in Kennewick. Unbeknownst to Jerry, his mother started a new family, giving birth to a son, Sam, and three daughters, Karen, Janis and Julie. Jerry’s mother died in 1956, and her children were separated and adopted by different families. “My sister Julie and I were adopted and raised to-

gether by a wonderful family,� Janis said. “I thought we were the only biological family out there, but Julie always felt like there were more of us.� After experiencing a few health issues, Julie and Janis filed a request to view their adoption forms to see if their issues ran in the family. They also felt ready to learn about their past. “At first, hearing more information about our family history was welcome news,� Julie recalled. “Then the more we learned, the harder it was to swallow just because of all the hard times everyone went through.� The forms didn’t reveal any sibling information. It was Karen who found Julie and Janis. She hired a service that helps put adoptive children in touch with relatives. “It took two years to find them,� Karen said. “I was determined not to give up.� Karen called up Janis right after receiving information on her whereabouts. “She asked me if I knew I was adopted and had other siblings,� Janis said. “You could have knocked me over with a feather when I heard that. At first I didn’t want to believe because I think I didn’t want me and Julie’s lives to be ruffled; we were doing fine and I was afraid this would disrupt us negatively.�

Janis said her doubts were in vain. The three sisters became instant friends. “She looks like us and talks like us,� Julie said. “It was surreal.� Ever since, all three sisters have stayed in close touch. They also reunited briefly with their brother, Sam, and their father before he passed away. Since 1992, Jerry has received support from TLC, a 30-year-old nonprofit that helps 29 clients with developmental disabilities live independently. Jerry now lives in his own apartment in Auburn and works as a part-time office assistant for TLC. He said that despite appreciating his “second family� at TLC, he always wondered about his past and wanted to put his biological family story together.

May 18, 2012 [9]

“Jerry was so excited to hear this news and wanted to continue to find everyone,� said Nanette Vanderford, one of Jerry’s support providers. About learning his mother’s last name, Jerry urged Vanderford to go onto his Facebook account to search for people who had the unusual last name, Fortesque. She found a relative of Jerry’s in Oregon, who told her about Jerry’s three half-sisters. “I was just shocked,� Vanderford said.

Jerry found Karen on Facebook and started exchanging messages with her. After awhile, the two arranged to meet. “I told Julie and Janis to come meet him with me, and they were beyond ecstatic,� Karen said. “We weren’t sure what we would find when we got there because I heard things about Jerry that were misconstrued. I had heard he was a vegetable and so we didn’t think we’d be able to communicate with him.� The sisters said they can

understand Jerry perfectly. “Jerry’s a wonderful human being and more than capable of talking to us,� Karen said. “I wanted to run to him when I first saw him. I couldn’t wait to make him a part of my life.� Julie said she can’t wait to get to know him more. “Now that we’ve all found each other, we want to build our relationships by meeting up frequently for dinners and other get-togethers,� she said. “And you better believe he’s coming with us.�

Finding Jerry The steps to restoring the family tree began in 2006 when Jerry’s cousin, Joyce Dalton of Conway, Ark., got in touch with a Tulsa, Okla., woman who does family research at no charge. Dalton knew that many of her cousins had been adopted after their mother’s death and wanted to get in touch. The first one she found was Jerry. Jerry traveled that year to Arkansas to meet her. There was soon talk of more lost relatives.

Always read and follow the application directions on the package as there are different types and grades of lime. I prefer the pelleted lime often sold as “Soil Sweet” because it is heavier particles that won’t be blown about the way lime dust can. Q. Are there any plants that should not be mulched? I use MooDoo that is a dark mix of composted manure. L.P., Sumner A. Don’t mulch plants from hot,

Transportation is one of the top problems facing King County’s elderly population. For seniors who no longer drive and have no families or friends to help out, getting to medical appointments can be very difficult. Senior Services representatives say more and more seniors

Igloi volunteers to drive seniors to medical appointments with Senior Services’ Volunteer Transportation Program. “Volunteer Transportation takes me new places every week,” Igloi said. “I love driving seniors to new clinics and hospitals, exploring the

Saturday marks the 12th year volunteers have participated in building and maintaining Kent’s 26.2 miles of trails. This year, Lake Fenwick Park’s east ridge trail will get some TLC. The event will take place from 9 a.m. to noon, rain or shine. Volunteers are asked to dress for the weather (no sandals or flip-flops) and bring a shovel, pruners or lopping shears. Starbucks on 4th and Meeker provides coffee and hot chocolate. Water also will be available, and volunteers are encouraged to bring their own water containers and refill from an event cooler to reduce waste in landfills. To keep our event manageable and safe, volunteers are asked to register. Registration forms are at www.KentWAParks.com. Click on Volunteer, or call 253856-5110.

chard, lettuce, spinach, kale and some herbs like mint will survive in partial shade, but most vegetables crave full sun, especially in our cool climate. Q. Why do my tomatoes never ripen before fall arrives? Anonymous, email A. In our climate you need to plant tomatoes in the hottest part of the garden and choose varieties that ripen quickly. The small fruited tomatoes like patio tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, Sweet 100, Sweet one million and Husky gold all ripen quickly and are the most dependable in Western Washington.

Thermogenesis is the process of producing cellular energy in the form of heat, which can be triggered by a factor called mitochondrial uncoupling protein-1. Japanese scientist have recently discovered that a plant extract called Fucoxanthin activates uncoupling protein-1 that signals fatty acids to generate energy rather than remain stored as body fat. Derived from a species of Japanese brown seaweed, Fucoxanthin provides a unique solution for safely boosting cellular metabolism. Unlike many “fat burners” that stimulate the central nervous system to promote weight loss, Fucoxanthin works directly in fat cells. By targeting energy distribution at the mitochondrial level, this non-stimulatory action provides aging humans with an important new mechanism of action to achieve successful long-term weight management.

dry countries such as Mediterranean herbs, lavenders, yuccas, sedums, thymes and cacti. Organic mulches such as bark dust, Moo-Doo and compost seal in moisture, help block weeds and help improve soil structure, but in our climate they also keep the soil cool and damp – and heat-loving plants hate this. Rocks and gravel are the preferred mulch for these unthirsty plants. Q. Why won’t my peony bloom? (asked by many people from many cities) A. Most likely it is planted too deep. Scrape away the mulch or soil so the growth eye or union of the root with the stem is just barely beneath the soil. (I do love this question; removing mulch is such an easy answer.) Q. What vegetables will do well in the shade? T.P., Tacoma

THE GARDENER

Q. Does lime spread on

Marianne Binetti

The third week in May has gardeners sending in a lot of great questions on their way to creating beautiful gardens. Here are easy answers to the most-asked questions this spring: Q. Why do some Exbury azaleas go straight to leaf and forget to stop at the flower stage? None of mine are in deep shade but some skip years and don’t bloom. K.K., Enumclaw A. My best guess for a lack of blooms on azaleas is that the plants dried out just a bit in late August or September when they were setting buds. The driest time of year in Western Washington is in early fall and this is a crucial time for spring flowering shrubs. Rhodies, azaleas and camellias have very compact root systems and can be hand watered during the dry season of late August and early September. This summer give them a good drink and see it they don’t grow happy.

Valley Medical honors 3 nurses with DAISY Awards FOR THE REPORTER

Valley Medical Center recently honored three nurses with the DAISY Award for outstanding performance. Colleen LeDrew, RN, BSN, CCRN, Critical Care Unit; Mark Navarro, RN, Infusion Center; and Erica Schindler, RN, Pediatric Mother Baby, are the hospital’s first recipients of the award, which honors nurses

who exemplify clinical skill and leadership, strong patient care and compassion. Peers, physicians, patients and families, staff and administrators nominated the nurses. The DAISY (diseases attacking the immune system) Award is an ongoing recognition program in partnership with health care organizations that celebrate the extraordi-

nary skill and compassion direct care nurses bring to patients and families. Valley Medical became the 1,000th hospital to join The DAISY Foundation program, which was piloted at the University of Washington’s Seattle Cancer Care Alliance back in 1999. “I am a big fan of the DAISY Award because of the stories people tell when they nominate a nurse,� said

Scott Alleman, MSN, RN, senior VP of Patient Care Services at Valley Medical Center. “They are beautiful stories about how nurses have made an impact on people’s lives, typically at a time when those lives are most fragile. “The DAISY Award recognizes an individual as a model caregiver who made a difference, something that all nurses aspire to.�

PERTUSSIS OUTBREAK: King County is experiencing a widespread pertussis outbreak, with 100 confirmed cases reported in the first three months of 2012. A county health representative says that’s the highest number reported for this time of year in the past decade and more than the reports received in all of last year. Pertussis is a bacterial illness that may begin with symptoms similar to the common cold, such as runny nose, scratchy throat or cough. The cough then gets worse over one to two weeks. Fever is usually mild or absent. Most children and adults don’t get seriously ill, but pertussis can be life-threatening for infants. Last year, two infants in Washington state died of pertussis, according to a county health representative. For more information, call Public Health at 206-296-4774.

The AG-Ventureland, brought to the public by Del’s Feed and Farm supply, includes goat and cow milking, corn and bean play boxes, pony saddling and more.

Whether you’re walking through the neighborhood, attending a community festival or visiting your local dog park, here are some tips to make your canineaccompanied outings more enjoyable. Teach your dog to walk beside (not in front) of you in crowded areas. When greeting people (with or without dogs) always have your dog sit beside you.

NUTRISCAÂŽ

Ask permission to pet someone else’s dog, and request that others do the same before approaching your dog. This will make your dog feel more secure and show others that your dog is under control. If you visit the dog park, practice basic obedience (controlled walking, sit stay and come) on leash, before (and after) you let your dog play. This will help your dog be more responsive to you when it’s time to go home, or if you need to intervene when a play session gets a bit too frisky! Remember that dog parks are not appropriate for all canines. Be fair to your own dog, as well as others, if his personality is not appropriate for these types of play sessions. Some dogs may become fearful, while others may become overly assertive, making the dog park visit stressful for all concerned. A good dog park experience is one where all the canines, and owners, have a good time. If your dog needs help with manners and/or appropriate body language around other dogs, enroll him in a basic dog obedience class where he will learn these skills in a controlled environment.

Do the right thing: License your dog or cat Auburn residents love their pets. Our furry friends are our companions, confidants, and members of our family. They go on errands with us and settle down on the couch with us for movie night. It only makes sense that we would want them to be safe and protected. The best way to do that is to make sure that they are licensed. When you license your dog or cat or both, you are not only helping your animal, but also others who may need help or assistance. Specifically, pet licensing: t)FMQTHFUZPVSQFUIPNFJGJUHFUTMPTU t'VOETBOJNBMDSVFMUZJOWFTUJHBUJPOT

Kentwood upended in district title game BY KRIS HILL

Tahoma had the opportunity to get a little revenge against two teams it had lost to this spring, and did just that on both counts in the West Central Southwest Bi-District tournament May 12 at Kent Memorial Park. First Tahoma beat Todd Beamer, 8-7 in 10 innings, after being down 6-2 late in the game. The Bears had lost to the Titans in the South Puget Sound League seeding game on May 4 in what coach Russ Hayden had described as his team’s “worst meltdown of the season.” Once that marathon game was complete, Kentwood took the field at KMP looking for a little revenge of its own against Puyallup. When the Conquerors met up with the Vikings on May 4 in the SPSL seeding game they had an unblemished record. Puyallup won that contest in extra innings. This time, though, Kentwood pitcher Skyler Genger said he was throwing the best stuff he had unlike the last time he faced Puyallup. The Seattle University-

Kentwood’s Tanner Wessling makes contact in a 3-0 win over Puyallup on May 12. Kentwood took on Tahoma in the district title game that evening, which the Bears won 5-3. KRIS HILL, Kent Reporter bound senior pitched a complete game for the Conks in a 3-0 win in which his defense made some spectacular plays behind him. “Everything was on point today,” Genger said. “Today what I thought we did really well, we’re quick to pick each other up. If adversity comes along our seniors

know how to pick everybody up.” There were some pretty nice plays made by a couple of sophomores, too. In the top of the fourth, sophomore Connor Sims drove in two runs on a hard hit single while in the bottom of the third sophomore Kade Kryzsko snagged a line drive behind second

base then flipped it to Cash McGuire to complete a double play. Genger said he felt so good before the game, he figured if his offense only got one run, that would be enough. “It feels a lot better because they didn’t get to see my good stuff,” Genger said. “I was throwing really good today.”

With that, Kentwood got the chance to take on Tahoma. During the regular season, the Conks got the better of the Bears. Tahoma senior shortstop Ryan Malone said after beating Beamer he looked forward to the chance to get Kentwood back. Malone added it was “awesome” to get Beamer back after Tahoma lost to the Titans in the league playoff game. Malone drove in the tying run with a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the 10th. When Kyler Swan stepped up to the plate with the winning run on third, Malone said, he just hoped Swan would put it into the air to drive the run in. Swan ripped a line drive in left field which gave Cooper Larson plenty of time to get to home plate. Then the Bears followed that up with what Malone was hoping for, putting together a 5-3 win in the final game of the day on May 12, earning the No. 1 seed out of the district. Tahoma faces Rogers at 1 p.m. on Saturday at Heidelberg Park in Tacoma. Kentwood takes on EdmondsWoodway at 10 a.m. at Kent Memorial Park on Saturday.

Walk-off homer lifts state-bound Kentridge BY SHAWN SKAGER sskager@auburn-reporter.com

Kentridge’s Joe Wainhouse delivered the knockout punch in a 9-8 slugfest with South Puget Sound League North 4A rival Auburn Riverside last Saturday, powering the Chargers (14-8) into the first round of the state 4A playoffs.

Conks win 3 straight, roll into district khill@covingtonreporter.com

Kentwood’s Kylie Goodwin lays down a bunt that brings home the winning run in the bottom of the eighth against Kentridge in the league tournament May 11. KRIS HILL, Reporter

Tahoma bounces Kentwood in soccer BY KRIS HILL khill@covingtonreporter.com

Tahoma’s boys soccer team found what it had been lacking late in the season when it knocked Kentwood out of the playoffs on May 12 – heart. Mac Henderson, a junior midfielder who scored both goals for the Bears in the 2-1 win over the Conquerors, said what he took away from a May 4 loss to their league

rival and a South Puget Sound League playoff loss to Emerald Ridge was the team needed something more. “I needed to give more heart,” Henderson said. “Because the last two games we kind of went through the motions. I realized we didn’t have enough heart in those games.”

Henderson scored the first goal off a ball from Jordan Downing, who broke away on the wing opposite, then Henderson led an attack with the ball on his foot before he found the net. Beating Kentwood not only kept Tahoma’s postseason alive – while it ended

Build Your Own Adventure!

A trio of Kent high school fastpitch teams along with Tahoma took the fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh seeds into the West Central-Southwest District tournament with Kentwood finishing highest with a 3-1 showing at the South Puget Sound League fastpitch tournament on May 10-11. Kentwood had a rough start, losing in what seemed like a home run derby to Rogers, but the Conks bounced back with three straight wins including victories over SPSL North division foes Kentridge and Tahoma on the second day of the tournament. Kentwood beat Kentridge 7-6 in the bottom of the eighth inning to start the second day of the league tournament. The win came thanks to a bunt by Kylie Goodwin which scored the winning run. And the tournament concluded with a 10-8 – though it wasn’t that close the first five innings as Kentwood had a 10-1 lead going into the bottom of the sixth – victory over Tahoma, which Kentwood split the regular season

the Conks’ aspirations for a state title – it did something more. “It made up for the times we’ve lost to them and to beat them in the spot that we did,” Henderson said. Tahoma played Central Kitsap in the first round of the 4A state playoffs on Wednesday night on the

contests with. The Conquerors earned the fourth seed to the district tournament and will face the Bears in the first round on Friday. Kentlake struggled after winning the North Division crown earlier in the week, losing in the semifinal to Thomas Jefferson, which went on to beat Emerald Ridge for the league title, then lost in the third-fifth game to Rogers. With the bottom of the eighth inning loss to Kentwood, Kentridge is the seventh seed in the tournament, while Tahoma’s 2-2 record gave it the sixth spot. The district tournament, where teams hope to earn spots in the 4A state fastpitch tournament May 25-26 in Spokane, is set for Friday and Saturday at Sprinker Recreation Center in Spanaway. Tahoma plays Kentwood at 10 a.m. on Friday. Kentridge plays Central Kitsap at 10 a.m. Friday. Kentlake takes on South Kitsap at 10 a.m. on Friday.

As economic opportunities continue to drive families further apart, and the over65 population continues to expand, ii is expected that even more people will be faced with the dilemma of having to care for seniors from great distances. While high-tech communication devices offer some solutions, there can be no doubt that professional care in an assisted-living facility or nursing home offers the best answer. These and other options should be explored with an experienced professional. The experienced and caring staff at PARKSIDE RETIREMENT COMMUNITY knows the importance of providing healthy, delicious and nutritious meals and snacks to our senior residents. A menu of tasty choices, with essential vitamins and minerals, is available daily. To discover more about us, reach us today at (253) 939-1332. We will answer your questions, and take you on a tour of our senior community, conveniently located at 2902 I Street, N.E. We have been locally owned and operated since 1972. We look forward to meeting you! P.S. Many long-distance caregivers utilize the services of trusted individuals living near their (grand) parents, upon whom they can rely to make regular (and emergency) visits. 621669

Kent-Meridian track star sets sights on state BY SARAH KEHOE skehoe@kentreporter.com

Kent-Meridian High junior Chloe Watson is working hard on the goals she set for herself at the beginning of track season. “I’ve been working from day one to improve my own personal records and to place at state this year,� Watson said. “Right now

that means focusing on my jumping in practice.� Watson runs the 100-meter hurdles and participates in the triple, long and high jumps. She beat a few personal records already, 16.23 seconds in the high hurdles, and 5 feet in the high jump. “I’m happy to say that already, our whole team

has done better than what people expected us to do,� Watson said. Watson placed in the top nine at the South Puget Sound League meet in the hurdles (8th), high (4th), triple (7th) and long (8th) jumps to advance to the West Central District meet this weekend with state berths on the line. Watson starting compet-

ing in track her freshman year after her dad and basketball coach convinced her it would be a great way to stay in shape. “I thought track would mean I’d just be running and running,� Watson said, laughing. “But I learned there’s a lot more to it than that.� Watson believes participating in track has made her stronger. “Track helps me get more in line and stay focused on my own self,� she said. “Often in team sports, you fall back because you know you can rely on other people to help out, but in track it’s all you. I can take that mental strength now and use it in team sports.� The biggest challenge for Watson was learning how to hone in her competitive spirit. “It’s hard for me to just focus on my own performance, beating myself and getting better,� she said. “I was constantly focused on my competition and was letting how they were performing be my goal. Now, I know that the only way to get better is beating myself.�

Kent-Meridian junior Chloe Watson placed in the hurdles, high jump, triple jump and long jump at the SPSL meet. SARAH KEHOE, Kent Reporter Watson also plays volleyball – she is a dominant outside hitter for the Royals, who made it to state in the fall – at the school and in a club. “It can be challenging to

balance both volleyball and track but it’s not too bad,� she said. “I like that track keeps me busy and keeps me fit. God gives me the motivation I need to keep going.�

The fight between the two women continued in the garage where Backstrom punched Grigsby in the head and then grabbed a hard metal object and repeatedly struck Grigsby in the head. Both Backstrom and Fastrup then used metal rope and a nylon key lanyard to strangle Grigsby, who died as a result of the injuries. The couple then allegedly put Grigsby’s body into the trunk of her own car and

Once at the site, the couple reportedly lit the car on fire with gasoline and fled. Shortly after 4 a.m. May 6, Mountain View Fire and Rescue responded to a report of a car fire in the area of Southeast 328th Street and Southeast AuburnBlack Diamond Road. When the fire department arrived the car was fully engulfed in flames.

Fire investigators discovered the burned remains of Grigsby in the trunk of the car. Deputies arrested the couple Friday in North Bend along Interstate 90 after a pursuit. After her arrest, Backstrom confessed to the killing and arson and implicated Fastrup, according to probable cause documents. Fastrup told detectives he helped dispose of Grigsby’s body via the arson but claimed Backstrom killed Grigsby at the house when he was gone.

... HEALTHY LIVING Kent’s Earthworks Tour Inaugural Ride on June 2

Kent4Health offers free talk on healthy living

REPORTER STAFF

Bicyclists are encouraged to register for the free Earthworks Tour Inaugural Ride on Saturday, June 2. The half-day ride through the Green River Valley starts at 9 a.m. at the Herbert Bayer Earthwork, located at Mill Creek Canyon Earthworks Park in Kent, 742 E. Titus St. In addition to hosting the Inaugural Ride for bicyclists, the Kent Arts Commission invites community members, arts enthusiasts and historic preservationists to the starting line to attend a quick ceremony to celebrate the restoration of the Herbert Bayer Earthwork and the dedication of new artwork. To register, go to www.KentArts. org/earthworks. The Earthworks Tour is a new bicycle route that is being organized by the Kent Arts Commission. The tour connects four iconic landscapes in the Green River Valley that are all internationally recognized, but not well known locally. Three were designed by artists and the fourth is a nature preserve. They

Bike riders of all ages and abilities are invited join the Earthworks Tour Inaugural Ride Saturday, June 2. COURTESY PHOTO are the Herbert Bayer Earthwork, the Robert Morris Earthwork in SeaTac, Lorna Jordan’s Waterworks Gardens in Renton and the Green River Natural Resources Area in Kent. The ride offers three routes for different riding abilities. The Easy Ride, recommended for families, is a flat, 12-mile ride to the Green River Natural Resources Area and back. The Intermediate Loop is a 20-mile ride that takes riders through the Green River Natural

Resources Area and out to Lorna Jordan’s Waterworks Gardens. It is also mostly flat with a single, long incline approaching Waterworks Gardens. The Advanced Ride follows the 20-mile route but includes a steep hill climb up to the Robert Morris Earthwork that adds three miles. All of the roadways and trails along the tour are paved. Visitors can bike to each location but should plan to walk through the earthworks.

Have you ever wondered what the numbers for your blood pressure mean, what exercises are good for a sore shoulder or what foods are best for your heart? Join local health professionals for “Optimal Health4You,” a free presentation on Saturday, June 9, from 9 a.m. to noon at the Kent Senior Activity Center, 600 E. Smith St. Call 253-856-4968 or visit Kent4Health.com to register. According to Kent4Health liaison Pam Clark, the event is an opportunity to ask questions and learn directly from the experts about exercise, balanced diet, disease prevention and healthy living. “We have a great lineup of speakers who will discuss common exercise practices, the importance

of proper footwear, nutrition and more,” Clark said. Guest speaker and licensed practical nurse Besty Kirichenko says people frequently ask her why it’s important to get health screenings, what the numbers mean and what can they do to improve their overall health. “This discussion is a great way to get answers. It’s easier than you think to get on a healthy track,” Kirichenko said. Other speakers include podiatrist Kevin Adolf, physical therapist Zach Steele and Stewart Rose with Vegetarians of Washington. Free blood pressure and glucose screenings will be provided. LifeQuest Chiropractic and Massage also will provide complimentary spinal health checks, five-minute chair massage and paraffin hand dips. Anyone is welcome, but space is limited.

“ It’s like they try to do all they can to

help you out…like you’re extended family.

“My daughter has been through a lot. 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.”
