Boeing, Kent schools await sandbag removal

BY SARAH KEHOE skehoe@kentreporter.com

The city of Kent is seeking additional funding opportunities for a $7 million project aimed to widen and improve a major street. The project will upgrade an old, substandard section of Southeast 256th Street from the Y intersection at Kent-Kangley Road to 116th Avenue Southeast. This roadway connects two previously upgraded sections of Southeast 256th Street. Public Works received a letter from the Washington State Transportation Improvement Board (TIB) regarding the Southeast 256th Street Project, stating that the proposed 256th Street Improvements is now considered Stage 2, a delayed project. Of the estimated $7 million project cost, the city has more than $3 million committed; $2 million TIB and $1 million drainage utility funds, leaving about a $4 million funding gap.

Sandbags soon will be coming down at businesses and schools all across Kent that sit near the Green River. Boeing installed 8-foot high, green Hesco barriers around its Kent Space Center on West Valley Highway three years ago as extra protection against flooding because of damage from a 2009 storm to an abutment next to the Howard Hanson Dam.

The Kent School District put down giant sandbags covered in black plastic around two elementary schools and a middle school. But since the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers completed repairs at the dam last fall, Kent schools, Boeing and other businesses that installed sandbags plan to remove the bags by fall. “Based on the recent reports from the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers we [ more SANDBAGS page 4 ]

Show of color: Kent festival shines BY ROCHELLE ADAMS For the Kent Reporter

Taiko drummers, bagpipes, children garbed in lion headdresses and various cultural displays took center stage last Saturday at the fourth annual Kent International Festival. “The theme of the festival is ‘Learn from Each Other,’” said Nancy Skipton, entertainment coordinator for the festival. “So people from

different cultures can learn about other cultures. I think once people know about another culture, they have a better appreciation for the differences between people.” There are more than 140 different languages in Kent, she said. The festival celebrates the cultural diversity within Kent. About 15 different cultural booths were set up as vendors, Skipton said.

There entertainment acts representing about 20 different cultures. “This is the fourth year we’ve done the festival,” she said. “It’s grown every year since. The first year was very, very successful, amazingly enough for a first year. It’s grown since then. The first year we had 12 acts for entertainment, now we’re working about 25 different acts.” The entertainment

ranged from Bollywood dancers to taiko drummers to Scottish bagpipes. Christran Skoorsmith, a member of the Elliott Bay Pipe Band, participated in the festival for the second year in a row, playing the bagpipes. The event is more successful every year, he said. He thinks attendees get a lot out of both the stage performances and the food court, which allows them to taste foods they wouldn’t necessarily be exposed to otherwise.

“I love playing the bagpipe, and I love sharing that part of my culture,” Skoorsmith said. The Kent International Festival is a fantastic opportunity to have everyone to bring out their best and share their differences.” He performed a series of marches and slow airs. He also allowed audience members to try using the bagpipes as well, so they could see how difficult using the instrument is. “The audience responded both to the playing and to opportunity to explore and get to know the bagpipes,” Skoorsmith said. “The bagpipe is very distinct, people recognize it, but hardly anyone gets to encounter it up

close, to learn how it works. So that’s one thing I like to offer people spontaneously.” Aside from the entertainment, attendees also had the opportunity to try a variety of different foods. Last year, they added a food court to the event, Skipton said. This year they featured food from six Kent restaurants including Indian, Mexican, Mediterranean, Kenyan, Irish and Japanese food. Nancy Brown, who served as the food court team leader, said the event is beneficial because it allows attendees to try a variety of foods. more story, photos online… kentreporter.com

Coconut Oil and Alzheimer’s Disease The most effective treatment for Alzheimer’s may be sitting on your cupboard shelf. Recently a medical doctor, Mary T. Newport, M.D., discovered the effectiveness of coconut oil in fighting neurodegeneration while researching a new drug. Dr. Newport’s husband, Steve, began to develop signs of Alzheimer’s disease. Dr. Newport searched endlessly for ways to curb the progression of the disease. She discovered that the active ingredients in Ketasyn were medium chain triglycerides (MCTs)–which are derived from coconut oil. After putting her husband on coconut oil he began to get better. The progression of the Alzheimer’s stopped and his condition improved. How do the medium chain triglycerides in coconut oil fight Alzheimer’s disease? During digestion, MCTs are broken down into medium chain fatty acids, some of which are converted into ketones. Nerve tissue, including the brain, relies on glucose for energy, nerve cells can also convert ketones into energy. When food is restricted and adequate glucose is unavailable, the body converts fat into ketones, which supplies the brain with energy it needs to function properly. Ketones do not require the aid of insulin to pass through cell membranes. Therefore, they can supply brain cells with needed energy regardless of insulin status. Nerve compromised brain cells that are starving for nourishment can get the energy they need from ketones the body manufactures from coconut oil. Newport laments that had she known about MCTs, she could have begun treating her husband who suffers from Alzheimer’s, sooner. “Realistically speaking, I cannot expect him to fully recover.” She believes his mind would not have deteriorated to the state it is in today if she could have started him on the coconut oil when the symptoms first arose. In fact, he may have retained all of his mental capabilities.

CONGRESSIONAL 9TH DISTRICT CANDIDATE PLANS TOWN HALL Democrat Dave Christie, who is running for Congress in the 9th Congressional District, will host a town mall meeting from 1-4 p.m. Saturday, June 30 at the Kent Commons Green River Room, 525 Fourth Ave. N. The redrawn 9th District includes portions of Kent and Auburn as well as northeast Tacoma, Federal Way, southeast Seattle, Mercer Island and Bellevue. Adam Smith, D-Tacoma, currently represents the 9th District and is running for reelection. Other challengers to Smith on the Aug. 7 primary ballot include Democrat Tom Cramer and Republicans Jim Postma and John Orlinski.

The city of Kent plans to send letters to medical marijuana collective gardens operating in town that the businesses are no longer allowed under a new ordinance. The City Council voted 4-3 on June 5 to ban medical marijuana collective gardens because it believes the businesses violate federal law that lists marijuana as an illegal drug under the federal Controlled Substances Act. That ordinance

took effect June 13. “We will be sending out letters to operators and owners informing them that collective gardens are no longer an allowed zoning use in Kent,” said City Attorney Tom Brubaker in an email. “We intend to send letters to each operator and to their landlords, to the extent we can identify them.” Brubaker said Tuesday the letters had yet to be drafted and he was unsure when the letters would be sent. Evergreen Association of Collec-

tive Gardens is the one known business still to be operating. Owner Charles Lambert has promised to fight the city all the way to the Washington Supreme Court. Brubaker said if the letters do not cause the medical marijuana businesses to close, the city will figure out what to do next. “We will continue to assess the situation and consult with the Mayor (Suzette Cooke) and Council before we take additional steps,” he said.

Fire damages Kent home

A Kent man was one of two Veterans Affairs employees arrested Tuesday at work following an investigation of more than $110,000 in fraudulent claims in a program designed to reimburse veterans for their travel to medical appointments. The two employees allegedly recruited veterans to submit phony vouchers for travel expenses they had not incurred, according to a U.S. Attorney’s Office media release. The employees reportedly processed the vouchers and then demanded kick-backs from the veterans of the funds they illegally obtained. “We owe it to our veterans to protect the money set aside for their medical care,” said U.S. Attorney Jenny Durkan. “Every dollar of fraud takes benefits from the

many veterans who are returning home and need the support services the VA provides.” According to the complaint filed in the case, Nick B. Hall, 46, of Seattle, and Keishjuan Daniels, 32, of Kent, each worked as travel clerks for the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) to process veterans’ travel benefit claims. The men were employed at the VA Medical Center on Beacon Hill in Seattle. Between January 2011 and May 2012, Hall and Daniels conspired with five veterans to submit false travel vouchers for trips from addresses in Eastern Washington and Oregon so that the VA would pay out more than $110,000 in travel claims. In some instances the claims for reimbursement were on dates when no appointments ever occurred. The veterans who received the fraudulent payments are charged in the conspiracy and will appear in U.S. District Court later this month. Hall and Daniels were scheduled to appear Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Seattle. more story online…

Kent officials to send letters to medical marijuana businesses that they are illegal

The additional steps could be civil action or criminal charges, said Deputy City Attorney Pat Fitzpatrick. Steve Sarich, executive director of the Cannabis Action Coalition, has sued the city in an effort to prohibit the city from enforcing its ban on collective gardens because he claims the state regulates medical marijuana collectives, and cities cannot enforce federal law over state medical marijuana laws. “We have been sued and will defend that lawsuit,” Brubaker said. State law allows medical marijuana use but the majority of council members decided the state law remains unclear about distribution of the drug and doesn’t want any medical marijuana businesses operating in Kent.


[4] June 22, 2012 [ TRIAL from page 1 ] “It was continued with a specific case schedule for the attorneys on both sides to follow,” said Ian Goodhew, spokesman for the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office. “The continuance was at the request of both parties.” Phillip, 31, of Portland, remains in custody at the county jail at the Norm Maleng Regional Justice Center in Kent with bail set at $1 million.

www.kentreporter.com He pleaded not guilty in March 2011 to a first-degree murder charge after being extradited from Portland. Frankel, 41, a city video-program coordinator, was killed May 21, 2010 in his Auburn home. He was discovered the following day by a neighbor who was checking on his welfare, looked through a window, and saw the body. Prosecutors allege that Phillip, a former boyfriend of the woman Frankel dat-

ed and lived with, drove to Auburn to kill Frankel because he was angry that someone else was dating the woman. Detectives connected Phillip to the murder through a bloodstained towel found at Frankel’s house as well as cellphone records that put Phillip near the home the night of Frankel’s death. Frankel’s girlfriend tipped off detectives that Phillip could be the one who killed Frankel. She said Phillip wanted a romantic relation-

ship with her and spoke badly about Frankel even though he had never met him, according to charging papers. Phillip had seen a photo of Frankel that the girlfriend had. Auburn police – with the help of the U.S. Marshals Service – arrested Phillip in December 2010 in Portland in connection with Frankel’s death. At a court hearing in May, Judge Andrus ordered a specific court schedule for deputy prosecuting attorney Wyman Yip and defense attorney Kristen Murray. According to court documents, the jury trial could last six weeks; Phillip has waived his right to a speedy trial; both sides have until Sept. 28 to complete all fact witness interviews; and the state shall disclose the identity of any witnesses it tends to call by Oct. 5. If needed, either side could also ask the court for more time to prepare the case and request a new trial date.

[ SANDBAGS from page 1 ] feel confident that the threat once posed by the breach in the dam’s abutment has been resolved,” said Boeing spokeswoman Cindy Wall in an email. Wall said the details are still being worked out as far as what Boeing will do with the Hesco barriers. She said the barriers will come down by early fall. She declined to disclose the cost of installing or removing the barriers. The Kent Space Center houses a central regional communication center as well as one of Boeing’s key data centers. It is also home to numerous Boeing supported defense programs critical to national security. Kent School District officials received three bids from contractors to remove sandbags from around Neely-O’Brien Elementary, Kent Elementary and Mill Creek Middle School. School officials are in the process of awarding the bid, which is expected to cost about $100,000. “Not knowing the eventual duration or cost of this project, we set aside adequate funds to cover the removal in 2009 and any unused dollars will go back into the general fund,” said Chris Loftis, Kent School District spokesman, in an

email. While students finished the school year Wednesday, the sandbags are expected to be gone by next school year. “The schools will be glad the barriers are gone,” Loftis said. “While necessary and appreciated, they were a visual distraction and a student management challenge. Our schools are designed with specific lines of site so that campus traffic can be monitored. There are also the aesthetic qualities and a more open look and feel lends itself to a more pleasant school experience.” Loftis said crews will remove sandbags from the schools sometime this summer. He did not have specific dates. “Student safety is our number one responsibility and these barriers were in place to protect students’ lives and community property,” Loftis said. “They were a necessary precaution given the circumstances and we appreciate the work that was done and the sandbags will soon be a thing of the past.” The city of Kent plans to remove giant sandbags by late summer along the Green River Trail. City officials rebid the sandbagremoval project and plan to open bids from contractors on June 25. City officials estimate the removal cost at $1.1 to $1.6 million.

www.kentreporter.com Constantine went on to cite a recent study of 366 metropolitan areas throughout the nation that gave the Seattle metropolitan area a third-place ranking as the strongest local economy based on sustained growth over the past 20 years. The Puget Sound region, Constantine said, has led the revival, especially in the manufacturing sector. Indeed, he said, over the past year this region has led the nation in manufacturing job creation, showing an increase of 7.3 percent, or 12,600 jobs. Accounting for “fully half of that growth,â€? Constantine said, and led by the Boeing company, was the manufacturing sector. Constantine praised the work of the King County Aerospace Alliance, a broad-based partnership of local jurisdictions, chambers of commerce, the Port of Seattle, local economic development groups and educational institutions like school districts and universities for working to expand and prosper the aerospace industry in the Puget Sound Region. “Here in King County ‌ we’ve been able to maintain the kind of access to a middle-class future that has been really the foundation

Constantine said. Constantine said that one of his goals is to make access to higher education a priority, so that when the Boeing Company or Microsoft look for people to fill high-paying jobs, recruiters won’t have to go halfway around the world to find qualified people. The state of Washington, Constantine said, is creating 850 new slots for engineering students at the University of Washington and Washington State University. The King County Workforce Development Council has awarded $900,000 to community and technical colleges to provide certificated training for specific skills needed by the Boeing Company and aerospace suppliers. Constantine noted that he and King County Councilmember Bob Ferguson have recently proposed to put about $2 million from the Veterans and Community Services levy into a new aerospace and veteran employment training initiative. “It’s a two-year program from Workforce Renton that helps veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan transfer the skills they have learned in the military into good paying jobs in the aerospace industry,� Constantine said. A woman from the audi-

ence asked Constantine to assess the impact on the Port of Seattle of bringing an 18,000-seat capacity basketball stadium into Seattle’s Sodo area, where baseball and football stadiums already exist. “The transportation impacts would be mostly after the time the Port of Seattle is closed at 4:30 p.m.,â€? Constantine said. “Most of the games there would in the evening. There are challenges today, and they have not been properly addressed. One is freight getting to and from the Port. The second is the more diffuse problem of warehousing and manufacturing businesses trying to move their goods around, and then commuters coming through. ‌ “The new arena would marginally worsen those problems, but would not be the difference between night and day. What we need to do is to address the challenges we have now, and by so doing we would address issues attached to having a new basketball arena,â€? Constantine said. Constantine noted that with the economic collapse, the recent spate of annexations and the passage of initiatives there is virtually no money to spare for road maintenance or construction.

COMMENTARY

editor@kentreporter.com 253.872.6600 ext. 27-5050

I didn’t like the idea of privatizing liquor sales for all sorts of reasons. After recently visiting eight retail outlets, my opposition may have softened but not much. It’s going to take some time to get used to seeing gin and whiskey and vodka across the aisle from the chips or near the tiki torches. Really, the displays aren’t all that big, maybe an aisle front and back or just something up against a wall. The ones I saw on that first day of private sales in nearly 80 years had some gaping holes in the displays or just minimal inventory. That will change, but still you have to ask, why bother? The answer, of course, is the bottom line and one more lucrative addition to the product line. I took my liquor tour as a reporter, but also as a curiosity seeker, much like others who stopped into the stores just to gaze on the spirits and check out the prices. It seemed particularly busy at a Fred Meyer. I was watching the shoppers as much as seeing what was for sale. A young man and an older one shopping together caught my attention. They also caught the attention of store employees who obviously and not so obviously were keeping an eye on shoppers, too. I liked that enhanced security. Here’s another piece of that. Anyone would quickly figure out that shoplifting a fifth of whiskey was fruitless if you had to break the bottle to remove the cap lock. That’s one reason my opposition softened. Other retailers need to pay attention to Fred Meyer’s efforts to keep control of who buys liquor at its stores. And, no, I don’t own stock in Fred Meyer. I stopped by a nearby Costco over the weekend to do some shopping, but really to see how the mega-wholesale store that paid mega-bucks to pass Initiative 1183 was displaying the liquor. I will say that Costco

Thank you, neighbors, police I want to send out a big thank you to those who contacted the police when they saw some suspicious characters lurking around our homes on a recent Friday. I returned from a short trip to find four police cars surrounding two guys in the green belt area. As I drove by, I was thinking to myself, “I’m glad they got caught having no thought or idea of what they did.” After I passed them, I began to wonder if they did anything to my place? My heart started to race a little as I entered my house, wondering what I might find. As I looked around inside, nothing appeared missing or out of place. I thought there was no need to look any further. I wasn’t home more than about 10 minutes when I heard a knock at the door. It was one

The officer asked me if I noticed anything missing, which I had not since I just returned. He asked if I had any coins or jewelry, and I told him

I did keep loose coins upstairs in my bedroom. He asked me to check to see if anything was missing.

I just want to thank my neighbors for calling the police to report some unfamiliar guys who were knocking on doors asking for some girl. It’s obvious now, they were looking for someone not at home.

Whether you are a Republican, Democrat or independent voter, most everyone agrees it’s better to incentivize politicians to prioritize spending and reform government rather than increase taxes.

Olympia has proven time and again that if it’s easy to raise taxes, they will. And they’ve consistently illustrated that without these tougher-toraise-taxes policies, they’ll impose higher taxes on regular taxpayers who are ill-equipped to fight back. Olympia politicians may talk a lot about “closing corporate

The two-thirds vote requirement for the Legislature to raise taxes has been approved by voters four times (we’re working hard to give voters

a fifth opportunity with this year’s Initiative 1185). During legislative sessions it’s been in effect, it’s done exactly what the voters wanted, making tax increases a last resort and forcing elected officials to work together to prioritize spending and reform government. But during sessions that the Legislature has suspended the [ more GUEST OP page 7 ]

two-thirds requirement, it’s only been a debate about which taxes to increase, how to much to increase them, and which poor and working class taxpayers get targeted. Twenty years of experience has removed all doubt that politicians cannot be trusted to make tax increases a last resort without the two-thirds vote requirement. Democrat politicians and their big-monied special interest groups have consistently tried to convince voters to reject this policy at the ballot box. They’ve failed every time. But rather than accept the clear and consistent decision of the people, they’ve embarked on a repeated effort to sue the voters. On three separate occasions, the state supreme court has exercised judicial restraint and allowed both sides to exercise their powers: the Legislature’s power to ignore the law and the people’s power to pass it. It is a political tug-of-war over an important public policy and the courts have recognized that both sides are fully capable of defending their position without judicial intervention. Ever since the state supreme court ruled that the Legislature does not have to abide by voterapproved initiatives (Farm Bureau, 2006), Olympia has been given free reign. As the attorney general’s brief explains: “The two-thirds supermajority vote provision may make it politically difficult to raise taxes, but freedom from political difficulty is not a right or legally protected interest of Plaintiff legislators.� A Seattle judge recently ruled differently than the

Anyone who has lived where liquor is sold almost everywhere, in such places as California and Alaska, probably doesn’t see what the big deal is. Only about a quarter of the nation’s population lives in states where the sale of alcohol is somehow

state supreme court has previously. Fortunately, the ruling will be “stayedâ€? pending appeal, meaning the two-thirds will remain in effect until the High Court rules. There are plenty of reasons to be optimistic that the Supreme Court will reject the Seattle judge’s reasoning: t*O UIF$PVSU found that individual legislators and special interest groups lack standing to bring lawsuits like this (“When a statute may be amended by the very persons the petitioners claim are being harmed, state legislators, we cannot do otherwise than find that this is only a speculative dispute.â€?). tć  FUBYJODSFBTFUIFZ tried to pass last year was approved this year, arguably making their current lawsuit moot. t-BXTVJUTMJLFUIJTBSFOU valid if the Legislature doesn’t exhaust all their remedies before going to court.

But this is a big deal. Anyone who has been touched by the dangers of alcohol – a drunken driver who killed a loved one or a family member wracked by alcoholism – hates to see it proliferate.

It is simply inconceivable that the founders of our state and authors of our Constitution – people who were deeply committed to limiting the power of government – intended to prohibit the Legislature and the people from making it tougher to raise taxes. It’s silly to argue otherwise as these Democrat politicians and special interest groups are attempting to do. Our Constitution exists to protect the people from the government, not to protect the government from the people. Tim Eyman, co-sponsor of “Son of 1053â€?

Thanks to four votes I am so grateful to the four members of the Kent City Council – Bill Boyce, Dana Ralph, Les Thomas and Deborah Ranniger – who voted to ban “medical� marijuana collective gardens. These gardens are just a smoke screen for potheads. It is nothing but a scam to get around federal law. It is too bad that we have the three (members) on our Council (who opposed

the ban) and support making pot legal. We need to vote these three out. – Mathew Renner

Mary Beth and Kelly Bachand’s hobbies have taken them to big cities and put them on television. Fashion took Mary Beth to New York City where she went to school at Parsons. Her work appeared in a fashion show that caught the attention of Saks Fifth Avenue and her work is now on display in the New York store. “It was a grueling process putting together all the pieces for the show, but it was also such a great time in my life,” Mary Beth said. “I was honored Saks took an interest in me.” Kelly’s passion is long range shooting, which involves engaging small and/or distant targets at the limit of weapon, ammunition and shooter capability under time pressure in field settings. Kelly, 24, is a member of the U.S. Long Range Rifle Team and has competed in events in Canada, Los Angeles and Australia where he won a silver medal. “Long range shooting is really fun and challenging,” Kelly said. “It presents some technical and mental challenges that you have to overcome.” Mary Beth has been into fashion her whole life. She started making her own clothes and altering the ones she would buy at age 10. “I find clothing to be a beautiful form of art,” she said. “Everything designers

philanthropic efforts.” While at Parsons, Mary Beth interned at Donna Karen’s Urban Zen Collection. She also traveled to Italy for a shoe competition where she worked with a technician to design six pairs of shoes. “All my experiences showed me that I fit into this world perfectly,” Mary Beth said. “The work was rigorous, but I managed to stay on top of everything and produce my own, unique designs.” Kelly has been involved in rifle competitions since high school. “Long range shooting is really a gentlemen’s sport,” Kelly said. “In one competition I went you, they had the shooters taking tea breaks in-between their turns.” Kelly was the first American to win a Canadian Rifle Competition in 2009. He was invited to the Canadian Parliament Building where he met generals. “Long range shooting is a big deal over there, and it was awesome to be a part of all the excitement,” he said. “They held a small parade in my honor and I felt cool.” Kelly has travelled and competed on the U.S. Rifle Team for many years and is a coach for the under 25 group. “Long range shooting has really open some doors for me and allowed me to experience a lot of neat things,” he said.

brought a group of long range shooters together for various challenges. “It was kind of like Survivor but with guns,” Kelly said. “We had all these competitions and we got to vote each other off.” Kelly took a semester off of college to participate in the show. He studied electrical engineering at the University of Washington. “I remember I filmed an audition tape in my kitchen with a friend and just talked about my adventures shooting over the years and why I liked it,” he said. “Then I went to Los Angeles to film and they stuck us in blacked out vans and drove us to this rural part of northeast L.A.” Kelly was the youngest person in the group. “I don’t know if it was because of my age but I kept getting voted for and ended up getting fifth place out of 16 people,” he said. “It was a really fun experience.” Kelly hopes to continue long range shooting adventures in the future. “This is definitely something I am going to keep doing throughout my life,” he said. Kelly graduated from UW on June 10 and is set to become an electrical engineer at Aerojet. Mary Beth graduated from Parsons last month and plans to return to New York to become a designer after taking a break at home in Kent for a few months.

It’s not as easy as it looks

Steve Stoffel just completed the biggest physical challenge of his life. The Kent man rode 860 miles with Team RVLution, a rookie bicycling team of three other men on June 13-15, and came in second in their division in the Race Across the West (RAW). RAW is a challenging race from Oceanside, Calif., to Durango, Colo., that takes riders through deserts and mountains. Stoffel can attest to that. He said the hardest part of the race was the heat, the climbs and the sleep deprivation. Stoffel, 53, did part of the Oak Creek Canyon climb toward Flagstaff, Ariz., on June 14 when temperatures at night dropped to

the mid-40s. The climb is described as the toughest section west of the Mississippi River, averaging more than 128 feet of climbing per mile. The day before and after that, Stoffel rode in 100-degree-plus weather in the deserts of California and Utah. “I promised myself that I would finish, and any time uncertainty or doubt crossed my mind, I thought about the people that matter to me and that kept me going,” Stoffel said. Team RVLution raised awareness and money for the MORE project, a charity that seeks to change lives of families living in poverty in Brazil, Cambodian, Thailand and Malaysia. Stoffel dedicated the race to his sponsored child in Brazil, Felipe Souza, a 13-year-old boy who loves to ride his

bicycle. Stoffel has a son of the same age with similar interests. Stoffel’s fellow teammates had the better part of a year to train for RAW but Stoffel had only three months. He had been training for the 2012 Seattle-to-Portland (STP) Bicycle Classic and had to kick up his regimen significantly when Team RVLution recruited him for RAW. It’s a far cry from Stoffel two years ago when he called himself a “professional couch potato.” Stoffel weighed almost 300 pounds and was denied life insurance because he was considered too high of a risk. Stoffel has since lost close to 100 pounds and kept it off. He found bicycling to be a sport he enjoyed and would stick [ more BICYCLIST page 15 ]

BY RUTH STOFFEL Special to the Kent Reporter

Everyone is tempted to try to write their own Will or power of attorney. It looks so simple, and blank forms are so easy to find. But there are significant issues involved on which an experienced attorney can provide valuable counsel that might keep a simple situation from becoming an awkward or expensive or even impossible transaction. We don’t want to find out after someone is disabled or deceased that their “simple” documents do not solve the problem, or actually create a greater difficulty that could have been avoided. Investing in proper estate planning counsel is a wise investment. You wouldn’t think to hire an inexperienced plumber to solve a plumbing problem. Why would you hire an inexperienced attorney (yourself) to solve a legal problem? If you have any questions about wills, trusts, or any aspect of estate planning, you clearly need to speak to someone who focuses his practice on these issues. I have more than 35 years of experience providing thoughtful and comprehensive counsel for clients. Please call 425-227-8700 to make an appointment at one of my two offices, which are conveniently located in Renton and Kent. Committed to you and the community.

The Kent School Board members are selecting candidates for the open board member position on Tuesday. The three final applicants are Agda Burchard, Amber Olson and Donald Priebe. Applications for the school board position have been available since Bill Boyce announced his resignation May 23 at a school board meeting. Boyce served on the board for 16 years.

“It has been my pleasure to serve on the board since August of 1996. However, I feel it is necessary to pass the baton so I can devote my time to my newly elected position of Kent City Councilman,” Boyce wrote in his letter to the school board and Superintendent Edward Lee Vargas. Boyce was elected to the Kent City Council last November. “Bill has been a mentor for all of the board

Dear Customer, Republic Services (Allied Waste) recently negotiated a 5-year agreement with the Teamsters Local 117 that best serves our employees, our company and, most importantly, our customers. We approached these negotiations with the intentions of taking good care of our team and providing reliable service to our communities. On June 2, our union employees overwhelmingly approved our agreement. You may have seen media coverage about a possible disruption in the collection of recyclables and waste. To be clear, this is due to negotiations between one of our competitors and Teamsters Local 117 and there is no reason to believe Republicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s customers will be impacted by this situation. Republic is proud to have reached a mutually beneficial agreement with Teamsters Local 117, one that ensures continued excellent service to all of our customers in Washington. We are pleased with the outcome of our recent negotiations and feel the process was respectful and collaborative, a true testament to the strength of our relationship. We value our community partnerships and look forward to providing your recycle and waste solutions in the years ahead. Regards,

Mike Huycke NW Area President Republic Services

New Edition brings R&B hits to ShoWare BY STEVE HUNTER shunter@kentreporter.com

Johnny Gill admits traveling the concert circuit at age 46 with the older version of New Edition can get a bit tiring as they bounce from city to city. Gill said he might even â&#x20AC;&#x153;take me a restâ&#x20AC;? as he sits on the bus heading to the next stop as part of the 30th anniversary tour. But come concert time, Gill, Bobby Brown, Ronnie DeVoe, Ralph Tresvant, Michael Bivins and Ricky Bell are all about pumping up the crowd with their R&B hits from the past and now. New Edition performs at 9 p.m. Friday at the ShoWare Center in Kent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like pandemonium,â&#x20AC;? said Gill, during a phone interview last week as the group traveled to Fresno from San Diego, about crowd reaction at the concerts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The energy is high from the beginning to the end.â&#x20AC;? New Edition started the tour in December in Los

Huge Selection

Angeles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been wonderful, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re having a great time,â&#x20AC;? Gill said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something the fans wanted to see and something we wanted to do.â&#x20AC;? All six original members are on the tour. The two-hour concert will include group hits â&#x20AC;&#x153;Candy Girl,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cool it Now,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mr. Telephone Manâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;If it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Love.â&#x20AC;? Solo hits will include â&#x20AC;&#x153;My Prerogativeâ&#x20AC;? by Brown; â&#x20AC;&#x153;My My Myâ&#x20AC;? by Gill; and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sensitivityâ&#x20AC;? by Tresvant. Gill joined New Edition in 1987 to replace Brown, who left for a solo career. Gill began his solo career in 1983 and last year released â&#x20AC;&#x153;Still Winning,â&#x20AC;? his first solo album in 15 years. Fans seem to be eating up the chance to hear the six sing as a group as well as their individual songs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a night of great entertainment,â&#x20AC;? said Gill, who lives in Los Angeles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You get all the hits from two entities in one. You get bang

for your buck. You have the individual success and our collective success as New Edition.â&#x20AC;? The concerts attract a lot of women. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s primarily women,â&#x20AC;? Gill said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And some guys who bring ladies. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the smart ones.â&#x20AC;? The group had talked for several years about reuniting for a 30th anniversary tour. They had branched into other groups and worked as solo artists as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was very challenging,â&#x20AC;? said Gill about getting all six together to tour. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone was busy with family and other entities. But we talk every Sunday. It just kind of happened naturally. Our schedules cleared and it came together.â&#x20AC;? According to reviews in other cities, Brown often takes the stage part way into the concert after the other five have sung a few songs. Gill typically hands out roses to female fans as he sings his 1990 charttopper â&#x20AC;&#x153;My My My.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been doing this almost 30 years,â&#x20AC;? said Gill, who has eight solo and duet Top Ten R&B hits. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We entertain.â&#x20AC;?

Kentwood graduate Alyx Toeaina has signed on with the University of Washington to throw for the Huskies track and field team. Toeaina, who lives next to Kentwood and graduated June 9, stated that she signed with the university for a partial scholarship the first week into the track season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wanted to get it out of the way so I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to worry about it during the season,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wanted to stay closer to home.â&#x20AC;? Toeaina finished her final track season as a Conqueror with two silver medals at the state championship in discus and shot put, throwing distances of 130 feet, nine inches and 43 feet, 3.5 inches respectively. As a junior she took first place at state in the discus with a throw of 136-3. Toeaina started out freshman year in 2009 with a 12th place at state in the shot put and ninth at districts. With a natural talent to throw, Toeaina said she improved due to the intense

Sarah Toeaina qualified for state in several running and hurdling events in addition to her roles on Kentwoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s volleyball and girls basketball squads.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just continuing my track career and see where that leads,â&#x20AC;? she said. Toeaina also has a younger sister, Sarah, who will be a junior in the fall.

Seattle T-Birds offer hockey school in Kent Youth and adults can sign up for the 2012 Seattle Thunderbirds Hockey School that runs Aug. 6-11 and Aug. 13-18 at the ShoWare Center in Kent. T-Birds assistant coach Darren Rumble will be the lead instructor at the hockey school. Center Tyler Alos will be one of the instructors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am looking forward to being a part of another fun year at the Hockey School,â&#x20AC;? said Alos in a T-Birds media release. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With Coach Rumble running the school this year it is going to be fun and educational for all the kids involved.â&#x20AC;? Other T-Birds players taking part as instructors will be announced in coming weeks. Participants in the T-Birds fourth annual Hockey School can choose one of two weeks to participate in the school. There are four youth groups: Group A for kids ages 6, 7 and 8; Group B for ages 9-10; Group C for ages 11-12; and Group D for ages 13-14. There will be an adult group for ns Balloo

Her sophomore year Toeaina made large gains, taking fifth at state in the shot put and qualifying for state in the discus, where she ultimately placed fourth. Her junior year, she secured third at state in the shot put and the gold medal in discus. Much like the Conks girls team, which place third this year after taking the state title in 2011, Toeaina said she struggled to repeat the same level of success. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as good as last year,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In discus I was all over the place. I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as consistent (as shot put).â&#x20AC;? In addition to track, she was also able to use her explosive power on the court with the Conks volleyball team, which took second at state in November. With a summer training program already in place, Toeaina hopes to build on

Keeping your plants healthy, thriving this summer

THE GARDENER

drangea? I have figured out that when I prune my big leaf hydrangea back to keep it from blocking the front windows it punishes me and does not flower again for a couple of years. Right now I can tell there are flower buds at the end of some branches but this monster is over 5 feet tall and again blocking the window. R., email A. I vote you move this hydrangea to a new spot where it can spread out its branches and grow into the full-bodied shrub it was meant to be. Replace this giant old-fashioned hydrangea with a dwarf or everblooming hydrangea that can be more easily kept under control. Hydrangeas are happiest when they are left to grow natural and never pruned. The new varieties like Endless Summer and Blushing Bride are an exception as you can cut back the branches on these hydrangeas in spring or summer and still get blooms; they will flower on new growth instead of two-yearold wood like traditional big leaf hydrangeas. Q. I was given a beautiful pink hydrangea for Mother’s Day. It has unusual blooms that are more flat than the round ball hydrangea flowers. Do you know what type of hydrangea Marianne Binetti

When June arrived you may have noticed your vegetable seedlings and annual plants experiencing a growth spurt. Just like a teenager, they now have a huge appetite so this is your reminder to fertilize. Roses and perennials also benefit from a feeding this month and if you still have not fertilized the lawn, make sure you do so early in the month before the hot weather arrives. You should not feed clematis vines in bud or bloom. Clematis is the queen of all vines here in the Northwest and thrives in our cool summer weather but if you give clematis a big dose of plant food just as it starts to bloom it sometimes drops the flower buds before they open in a misguided effort to grow more foliage. Instead, pamper your clematis with an organic mulch placed on top of the roots but not quite touching the thin and delicate stems of this vine. June also is the month to add more hydrangeas to your garden. These summer-blooming shrubs now come in a wider range of colors, sizes and flower types. Here are the most-asked questions about growing hydrangeas. Q. How do I prune my giant hy-

The project will improve traffic flow, access to businesses and homes and safety for vehicles and pedestrians. The project will add a center turn lane and form a threelane road, create bicycle lanes and sidewalks, improve residential driveways and business access, improve traffic efficiency by rebuilding intersections and retiming traffic signals and install street lights, storm drains and other utilities, according to Mark Madfai, project engineer. Officials are working to form a local improvement district (LID) to fund $2 million and continue to apply for grants for the last $2 million. TIB funding has been placed on hold and can only be reinstated based on TIB board approval. This could occur once the city has determined how to finance the project and is ready for construction. They have until July 1, 2013 to begin construction of the project or TIB funds will be taken away permanently. The project’s complete design is slated for completion in December. The city will advertise for bids next February, start construction in March and complete construction next summer. Construction work is dependent on project funding.

with over a long period of time. Team RVLution’s goal was to finish RAW in 55 hours. They did it in 57 hours and 35 minutes, beating Team Wisconsin – a team that had placed in the top three in the past five years – by 23 minutes. RAW officials said Team RVLution was the only rookie team to cross the finish line. Other rookie teams made the attempt but did not finish.

this is, can I plant it outside and will it survive the winter here and bloom again next year? A. It sounds like you’ve received one of the new gift hydrangeas called Strawberries and Cream and the good news is it can go out into the garden in our climate for years of enjoyment. The flowers you describe are called “lace cap” as the center blooms do not open, giving the illusion of a lacy frill around a center cap of buds. Enjoy the blooms indoors but by June remove the plant from it’s pot and replant into a spot where it is protected from the hot afternoon sun. Hydrangeas love moist soil and newly-planted hydrangeas will need extra water the first summer and into the fall until they establish a strong root system. There’s no need to fertilize your newly-transplanted hydrangea as you want this greenhouse-grown plant to harden off or acclimate to the outdoor life. A mulch over the roots during the first winter will help it to survive and grow into a tough shrub that flowers each summer.

“While this was a competition, the camaraderie that was built with other teams was impressive,” Stoffel said. “We all wanted each other to succeed and this motivated us to do our best.” Next up for Stoffel is finishing the 2012 STP next month in one day. And he has his eyes set on RAMROD (Ride Around Mount Rainier in One Day) next year. Stoffel said he would do the RAW again. “This was a great team of very

dedicated athletes, and it was an honor to be part of that unit.” You can meet Stoffel at Road Runner Sports, 417 Ramsay Way, Suite 110, at Kent Station at 7 p.m. July 26. He and his wife will be holding a free nutrition seminar for the public and sharing tips on living a healthier lifestyle. Ruth Stoffel, wife of Steve Stoffel, lives in Kent. She is an Emmy award-winning journalist, a best-selling author and a certified nutrition coach and marketer.
