Collective gardens banned in city limits

City officials marked a significant moment in history Tuesday by breaking ground on Covington Community Park. Earlier in June the city hired Maple Valley-based contractor Goodfellow Brothers to build the first phase of the project, according to CovCOVINGTON ington Parks and Recreation Director Scott Thomas. “Shortly it’s going to be in the hands of the construction contractor, then it will be in the hands of our maintenance staff,” Thomas said. “It’s really been 10 years in the works. That’s not a long time for a project, that’s not unusual, but that speaks to the dedication and tenacity of the city council

Even though the Maple Valley Council banned medical marijuana collective gardens, access points such as Green Society Group can still move just outside the city limits. That’s because King County has taken a different stance on the issue. MAPLE The Maple VALLEY Valley City Council passed a ban with a 6-1 vote — Linda Johnson was the lone dissenter — on collective gardens for medical marijuana at its meeting Monday night. In a separate approach, King County has handled the issue of collective gardens with an “administrative interpretation” within its incorporated area, according to

Cities take a hit after change in state’s liquor sales laws June 1 BY TJ MARTINELL tmartinell@covingtonreporter.com

It’s a tale of very different cities when it comes to the effects of the new liquor laws. Despite a one-year loss of $61,000, Covington will be mostly unaffected by changes to the state’s liquor laws, while Maple Valley suffered a loss of $120,000 at a time when spending is outpacing revenue. Meanwhile, Black Diamond is still waiting to learn how its budget will be impacted. According to Covington City Manager

640471

Derek Matheson, the city will lose $61,000 this year legislative fiscal year. While the city managed to retain the liquor fees and licenses, the state Legislature eliminated its share in excise taxes from June Derek Matheson to July 1, 2013, approximately $93,500. Every year after that, the city’s share will be cut by $23,500. At the same time, however, Matheson

said Initiative 1183 sets aside money from the liquor license distribution fee to go to municipal governments for public safety services in the amount of $23,500, which effectively makes up the loss from excise taxes. The $61,000 is a far cry from projections earlier this year, when Covington officials were anticipating a $250,000 cut. Yet, Matheson said it’s too early to celebrate, as the state Legislature may come back to it during its next session and make additional cuts. Meanwhile, he said the city will have to decide where the cuts need to be made. “We’ll see how that shakes out in the fall,” he said. “We’re seeing increases in sales tax revenue that could offset that, or more. But we’re also seeing that familiar increase in the cost of providing current services, that’s

the biggest challenge.” In Maple Valley, however, the city’s loss is $120,000 this legislative fiscal year, according to City Manager David Johnston. The loss of revenue also occurred from a cut in its share of the excise tax. According to Johnston, the legislative fiscal year is July 1 to June 30, while the city’s fiscal year is Jan. 1 to Dec. 30. Johnston added that the Association of Washington Cities, which lobbies on behalf of municipal governments, would likely David Johnston take up the cause with the state. “The biggest battle that AWC needs to

Community Note SEARCH CONTINUES FOR MAPLE VALLEY MAN A Maple Valley man has been missing for more than a month, according to the King

County Sheriff ’s Office. Todd Partain, 46, was last seen on May 18 at around 9 a.m. after he had called his receptionist to tell her he would be at work at 3 p.m. He was reported missing on May 19 after he failed to show up at work.

According to the missing person report, he had made comments about driving into the woods and disappearing. The report also said that he had trouble sleeping and had “lost his desire to participate in ordinary activities.� Also missing is his 2001 white

the actors know there is one person in charge, but it was a collaborative effort.� While Corrigan said he was pleased with the actors’ performances, particularly the relationship between David and Fred, he was also elated to see Stone act out several tricky scenes, including David’s death. Death scenes, he said, especially on stage, have a high risk for over exaggeration or melodrama. “The death scene was hard to do,� Corrigan said. “I wanted somebody who wouldn’t over emphasize it. By the time we got to Maple Valley (Stone) really had that nailed.� He also said that Ewing delivered strong performances during the showings. “Craig took on all the emotional aspects of it,� he said. “He was really into it. It was really amazing to me that he could take it to that level.� Corrigan said he is now concentrating on finishing his third play, which he started just before production for “David� began. Titled “Guess Who’s Coming to the Wedding?� he said the play is a take-off of the film “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?� and deals with racism and inequality concerning an interracial couple. Attendance was strong enough to cover the costs of the production as well as provide additional revenue to give back to the venues that hosted it, Corrigan said. Despite that, however, he said he has no desire to direct again. “I think directors have to have an innate feel for it,� he said. “Mechanically, I understand it, but I just want to get the play out there.�

Currently, collective garden zoning decisions have been made through the Department of Development and Environmental Services. “I’d guess we’re taking a different approach in King County,� Smith said. “Qualifying patients have access to medical marijuana.

So we think some limitations on gardens are reasonable.� According to Smith, the county’s zoning code allows DDES to determine how and under what classification collective gardens are zoned. John Starbard, the director of DDES, said he decided that he would classify collective gardens under business zoning. They are prohibited, however, in residential zoning. “Generally we feeling qualifying patents should have access to medical marijuana as that’s allowed under state law,� he said.

“The conundrum we faced is much of our zoning code is based upon a standard industrial code.� According to a King County designated zoning map, there are two main business zoning areas near Maple Valley within unincorporated King County. One is directly north of the city where businesses such as Valley Automotive Repair and Electric and Testy Chef are located. The second is situated southeast where the Ravensdale Market is located. The third is located east

near the Hobart Post Office. Collective gardens are only zoned within the urban growth boundary of King County. Starbard said DDES chose not to allow collective gardens in residential zoning because it didn’t seem appropriate. So far, the King County Council has yet to deal with collective gardens. County Council member Reagan Dunn, who lives in unincorporated King County near Maple Valley, stated the issue hasn’t really been on the council’s radar screen, though he said that

he intends to bring it up at some point. Dunn said he believes the council has the authority to ban collective gardens if they choose to, and while he considers medical marijuana to have positive benefits, he added “it needs to be tightly controlled, because what I don’t want to see is these grow operations turning into proxy for recreational use.

� Q U O T E O F T H E W E E K : �I write of the wish that comes true -- for some reason, a terrifying concept. “

- James M. Cain

The business license blowback

“Be careful what you wish for, because you actually might get it.� Parents love to say this kind of stuff to their kids, ad nauseum. Usually, it’s when their child makes some preposterous remark about the way they think things should be and don’t fully grasp the ramifications or consequences their ideas would cause. Right now the Maple Valley City Council is considering a business license. As it is written currently all businesses within the city, aside from a few exceptions, would have to pay a $50 fee. Officials state the $50 would be used solely to cover the costs of the program and not provide revenue for the city. So far, it has received a strong backlash from the business community, and for good reason. A lot of their criticisms are fair. Right now, they already have to get a state license. Why do they need another one? And yes, the $50 fee is small, but how many other fees do businesses already have to pay? This just adds one more unnecessary straw to an already weakened camel’s back. Additionally, the business license may not be revenue-generating. But when the city’s revenue from residential housing starts to taper out, it could become too tempting for future councils to resist. For example, the city of Bothell has a business license fee of $5,098 for a company of 800 employees, $243 for 25 employees and $39 for two employees. At the moment Bothell’s City Council, according to a recent story in our sister paper the Bothell-Kenmore Reporter, is considering a large increase to help cover revenue loss. This is what Maple Valley business owners are afraid will happen eventually. The problem is, the city also has legitimate issues that officials feel need to be addressed. Council member Sean Kelly pointed out that the business license would allow the city to determine areas where public safety might be a concern and know what kind of businesses are in the city. It would also allow the city to contact business owners whose properties have been damaged or robbed. Some people, particularly in the medical marijuana advocacy camp, might see this as a furtive way for the city to prevent businesses like Green Society Group from coming in by denying them a business license. Even though the city may institute a collective garden ban, GSG has stated TJ Martinell Staff Writer

COMMENTARY

TJ Martinell reporter

repeatedly that it is a management company and not a collective garden, so it could still be denied through a business license. That could very well be the case, but it’s not what precipitated it. Exactly a year ago, the City Council was discussing the idea of a business license program at its June 26 meeting. The timing for the proposal may seem very coincidental with the opening of GSG, but a coincidence it is nonetheless. If the city’s main reason for the business license program was just due to public safety, I could see several alternatives. For example, the city could instead pass an ordinance that would require a business to provide them with some basic contact information. This could easily be done for free via the city’s website. They would be required to state what type of business they are. As for the GSG/collective garden issue, that is for another time, another column (tune in to next’s week episode). Nevertheless, in spite of all the reasonable qualms business owners have with the proposed license, no one seems to want to deal with the elephant in the room that is the root cause of it all. As Mayor Bill Allison stated in an interview for an article I wrote last week, the city has to create a business license program because the municipal code, as it is written right now, is unconstitutional. It requires transient salesmen and peddlers to get special licenses, but not other businesses, which City Attorney Christy Todd said is a violation of the Equal Protection Clause in the 14th Amendment. This entire ordeal started last year when attorneys representing transient salesmen contacted the city about its ban on peddlers. Todd told the

council the ban was not enforceable, so it was removed. And just to clarify, this does not mean peddlers have the “right� to trespass on private property. It means the property owner, not the city, decides whether they will conduct a business transaction with someone on their property. To address issues of “public safety,� the council passed a peddlers license program based on feedback from the community, knowing that the city would have to institute an outright business license at some point. Until this issue gets resolved, every other complaint against the business license, however justified, isn’t going to deter the council. Yet no one has addressed this. To my knowledge, no one has told the council to get rid of the peddlers license so they aren’t required to institute a license for all businesses. Which goes back to the “be careful what you wish for� adage. People wanted the city to regulate peddlers, so the City Council did. What no one seemed to realize at the time was how it would affect every business in the city. Now Maple Valley has to regulate them all. The city can’t pick and choose which businesses to regulate and which ones not to, nor should it. That’s not how capitalism or a free market works. If business owners in Maple Valley want to prevent a business license, they need to push for the repeal of the peddlers license. President Reagan once said that the nine scariest words in the English language are “I’m from the government and I’m here to help.� Nine words that should be equally as terrifying are “The government ought to pass a law against that!�

was requested by so many is because it didn’t assume that any group or individual was more culturally competent than the other. Neither was the facilitator more competent by virtue of his ethnicity. We are all on a continuum, perhaps in different places, moving beyond cultural competence to become culturally proficient. It’s a continuous learning process. Beyond cultural competence means at least two things: one, people learn by sharing experiences and perceptions as they discuss the elements of cultural competence without being judged competent or incompetent, or being compelled to have feelings of guilt. Instead, everyone’s perceptions are acknowledged within a safe learning environment

maintained by the facilitator. Another meaning is to focus beyond the use of the word “competent� to the words culturally “proficient,� because many of the people who would be receptive to learning about cultural differences and similarities reject the perception that they need to become competent. Once a group comes to understand the role of culture, they have a better chance of realizing that most cultures that continue to exist are sufficient to some extent. Otherwise, they would not have survived to this day. In order to survive, all cultures must produce and train the young.

Making up for lost time after getting sick work one day to get the kids off to school. It’s at these times I realize all the little tasks I perform just to get my kids out the door. It’s not much of a rest when I’m lying in bed obsessing about whether my husband filled up my older daughter’s water bottle or made my youngest daughter’s lunch. He does try, though. But when I needed him to go to the store and get me some soda crackers, I think I may have pushed him over the edge. Do you know how many varieties of soda crackers there are? There are salted, plain, whole wheat, low fat, original. He called home to find out which crackers he should get.

My youngest answered the phone, but I was unable to talk to him because I was on the phone with the doctor. So my daughter talked him through his soda cracker conundrum. He told her all the varieties. She told him to get the “original� ones — it was the right choice. When in doubt, get the ones your mother gave you as a child. The next day I was feeling better and I was determined to make up my lost time so we could still go on the camping trip we had planned. I was scurrying around trying to get our RV packed and ready to go and my husband decided to grab

hold of the front wheels of the RV and shake really hard. I don’t know why a guy would decide to do this, but I’m no mechanic. Maybe it’s an important part of manhood to test your strength against the stoutness of a vehicle outweighing you by several thousand pounds, or perhaps it was in response to his inability to make a cracker choice without his fourteen year old daughter. But guess what? The wheel wiggled. From my understanding it should wiggle, but not as much as it wiggled and it has something to do with rotors and grease and bearings. It wasn’t broken, but my husband determined it was just wrong. The plan that day was to get the kids’ from the bus stop, as it was their last day

of school, and take off on our trip. So as I’m rushing about trying to make up the two days I lost being sick, my husband took the wheel off and started taking things apart. Needless to say I was relieved when he determined it would be fine for our trip, but it did take him all morning to make the decision (after having to buy a $70 jack big enough lift the motor home). I got my oldest home and I started to pack the camper as my husband put the RV back together. As I jumped in the car to pick up my youngest from the bus stop, I was feeling elated at having regained the time I lost and we were going to be able to go on our trip. My daughter got in the car with a sad face from saying goodbye to her middle school years. I told her

husband, wife, son or daughter – we are all Americans. As Americans, we subscribe to the cultural values of freedom of religion and freedom of speech – values that people from around the world come to the U.S. to share. Sharing such cultural values make us one nation. So, if we have these great values and opportunities, why do we need cultural competence? There are many who believe that even though the U.S. is the destination for many throughout the world, we need to do more to increase opportunities for the new Americans, as well as for groups who have been in the country for generations. Some cultural competence advocates believe

that the five elements of cultural competence help to foster the right attitudes for the dominant culture to become more inclusive. One of many potential examples is that English is the language of the dominant culture in the U.S. Some cultural competence advocates believe that driver’s license test and many other government services and information should be printed in other languages as well as in English. A license to drive, as an example, gives immigrants easier access to jobs and other advantages. However, other people believe that our culture is doing fine as it is. Perhaps it’s not perfect in every respect, but the perception is that mostly anyone can make it in the United

States, regardless of race, creed, color, gender or religion. All one has to do is work hard and be reasonably intelligent, as many immigrants and others have proven throughout history. They believe that people who come to the U.S. should learn to speak and read English. Both sides of the discussion has an enormous number of allies on a variety of cultural competence topics, including hiring practices, education opportunities, gender issues, Christmas celebrations, who is being served by institutions, how to show respect, and many more. However, it is clear that many organizations still don’t require their employees to participate in cultural competence workshops that put some

of these issues on the table as well as help people to better understand their own cultures and the cultures of others. But that’s changing in South King County. Both the Kent School District and the city of Kent are pushing the cultural competence agenda. Cultural competence doesn’t have to be a workshop where the views of one side of the discussion are imposed upon others. This approach seems especially unfair when captive audiences are participating in the workshop as a condition of their employment. Moving beyond cultural competence means respecting the views and perceptions of all participants, as people’s perceptions have roots in their

experiences. Cultural competence workshops should be an experience where people with different views interact to solve problems for the common good of a community. The more diverse the perceptions and experiences in the workshop, the greater the potential for better solutions. In this way, cultural competence moves beyond the judgments of one or another group to become more inclusive of differences, exemplifying in its own workshops the affects cultural competence wants to produce in individuals, in organizations, and in the world. We are now in the realm of becoming culturally proficient. That is, continuously learning and adapting.

I got the stomach flu last week. I got it from my oldest daughter who brought it home from school the weekend before finals. I usually don’t get the illnesses my children bring home, but sometimes, as the caregiver, these things can’t be avoided. I even had a low grade fever — I can’t remember the last time I had a fever. I hate getting sick. I have things to do and not being able to do them puts me behind. It was the last three days of school so we were planning on going camping for five days. I still had to pack the RV, wash clothes and grocery shop. I was totally out of commission for two days. When I’m sick, my husband does his best to step up to the plate and take care of things for me. He even stayed home from

to continue making it a priority for a long period of time and stay focused long enough to make it actually happen.� Work will begin soon on a full size grass soccer field, parking and a mile of trail system, some of which will be paved while the rest will be gravel and all will be ADA accessible. Goodfellow Brothers should be done no later than the middle of October, Thomas said. Covington Community Park is located at 180th Avenue Southeast and Southeast 240th Street. The site is about 30 acres and is a collection of four parcels purchased by the city in 2003 and then brought into King County’s urban growth boundary in 2004. It was annexed into the city in 2008. Construction will have a $1.6 million price tag while the total project cost comes in at $2.26 million. “With a great amount of work and good luck,� Thomas said, the funding came together. Money for the project came from a number of sources, he added. Covington’s utility tax, which the City Council increased shortly before Thomas began working for the city in mid-2008, helped. “We were able to set a side a big chunk of that for construction for several years,� Thomas said. “It also comes from another utility tax increase in November and that tax increase was specifically dedicated to Covington Community Park so forevermore there will be money to maintain the park.� Thomas said the representatives from the 47th Legislative District also played a significant role in acquiring $700,000 for the project and hanging onto it through several legislative

SURVEY SAYS: BY KRIS HILL khill@covingtonreporter.com

Classes, shopping, income, business retention are among the items on a survey Covington officials are asking community members to fill out. While it’s billed as an effort to take a temperature check on the city’s business climate it could part of a more ambitious long-term goal for Covington. The survey, explained Community Relations Manager Karla Slate, is split into different sections to

gather information about demographics, employment background, shopping in Covington as well as education particularly higher and continuing education. “Anybody can do the survey,� Slate said. “It’s really anybody who has come into contact with Covington in some way, whether they live here, shop here, or drive through here and don’t like the traffic.� Covington’s Economic Development Council, of which MultiCare’s Hugh Kodama is a member, is

Covington officials partner with healthcare organizations, businesses and higher education institutions to learn what the community wants and needs in the city looking at what the community wants to see how the city can better partner with businesses, area organizations and possibly higher education institutions such as Green River Community College and Renton Technical College. “We want to find the needs of the community,� Kodama said. “If you don’t find out what the needs are then you’re not going to develop a product that the community wants. It’s important to partner with the city, with the schools,

because no one has all of the resources ‌ but together we can develop what’s good for the community and serve a wide variety of needs.â€? From the perspective of City Manager Derek Matheson, a significant driving force behind this desire to partner more broadly by bringing in a community or technical college, both on a short term and long term basis. In the near term, Matheson said, the goal is to bring in some courses offered by a college maybe in City Hall, in Kent school buildings nearby, possibly even in healthcare facilities. “The city and MultiCare have been working for some time on an effort to recruit higher ed to the community using our substantial healthcare presence as a hook,â€? Matheson said. “The long term goal ‌ is I’d like to see a higher ed branch campus facility here in Covington and maybe even in the Town Center someday. There are many

instances in the region where higher ed has been transformational.� To begin with city officials met with Renton Technical College in 2010 and have met periodically with RTC officials since then. In early 2011 representatives from Covington convened a meeting with Green River, Valley Medical Center and MultiCare about 18 months ago. During the past six months the conversation has reignited with both schools. It seemed like an important step was to gather community input so Slate met with Tamara Rose, who was formerly with the Covington Chamber of Commerce, and out of that came the survey which tackled both long term economic development as well as the potential advantages of bringing a higher education presence into the city. This has the potential, Matheson said, to transform how everyone from the city to healthcare to scholarship program. Volunteers must be over 18 and able to donate four hours per week. An orientation and training program helps volunteers become familiar with new duties. For more information, call the Volunteer Services Department at 425.656.4031, extension 3.

GREEN RIVER AWARDED COLLEGE SPARK GRANT College Spark, a Seattle-based foundation that funds programs helping low-income students prepare for college, has announced that it would fund a Green River Community College startup program that would develop an English placement system for high school students. The College Spark grant, along with

funds from the GRCC Foundation, totals more than $68,000 over a two-year period. “This program will support a state endorsed, multi-faceted approach to placement in English so students do not solely need to rely on the recommendations of a placement assessment,� said Joyce Hammer, the dean overseeing the English department. “This project will also help strengthen partnerships between Green River and the Auburn and Kent school districts who are participating in the initial pilot.� The grant is designed to help Green River English instructors Marcie Sims and Amanda Schaefer design a program that takes high school students’

transcripts into account when placing students into college-level English courses. It will be modeled after a math placement program the college implemented in 2004. Accurately placing students into courses reflective of their abilities helps “move students more quickly toward a ‘tipping point’ of a college degree or credential� based on practices established by the state. Correct placement also translates to cost savings for students who would have otherwise been placed into an English class from which they had already advanced.

King County Community Service Area (CSA) Program Manager, Alan Painter, discussed a new framework for County communication with residents of the unincorporated areas. The purpose of the new CSAs is to improve public engagement in the unincorporated areas by providing residents a single County staff link to specific projects in parks, roads, land use, public health, and public safety. There will be six CSAs that encompass all of unincorporated King County, including areas without previous representation by an Unincorporated Area Council (UAC). A seventh CSA will cover west King County Unincorporated urban areas. CSAs will include existing UACs and interested civic organizations and other local groups. The Area Council will be part of the Greater Maple Valley and Cedar River CSA, an area much larger than it currently covers. Once the King County Council approves final CSA boundaries, CSA maps will be posted. County interdepartmental teams will hold public meetings at least once a year with each CSA, in close collaboration with the King County Coun-

cilmember for that district and with other countywide elected officials. Painter also described how unincorporated area residents will be able to participate in an annual work program for each CSA. Community organizations in each CSA will be able to apply for grants of up to $5,000 to promote the engagement of local residents in community or civic activities. The grant process will start in August. As Manager of the Community Service Area program, Painter and his group will: Develop a schedule for annual public meetings in each CSA, develop CSA work programs that are linked to the annual budget cycle and establish the new community grant program. Painter reports to the King County Executive’s office. Area Council members expressed frustration to Painter with King County service reductions, including road maintenance, police response, and permitting due to budget cuts. Hope was expressed that King County through Painter, in his new capacity as CSA Program Manager, will be an advocate for rural area citizens and their concerns. Specific concerns raised dealt with the myriad impacts from the proposed Black Diamond Master Planned Developments. In addition, concerns were expressed about potential precedents set by the recently King County-passed Pacific Raceways expansion Ordinance to allow Industrial/Commercial large-scale development in the rural area through so-called “Special Demonstration Projects.� Painter ensured area council members that he will be unincorporated area citizen’s one point of contact to bring matters such as these and others to the right people at the county.

New Member Beverly Tonda was sworn in as a new member of the Area Council. Ms. Tonda will serve in the Area Council’s River Heights Community Area. The Area Council has several vacancies to fill.

Area Council Information The Area Council serves as an all-volunteer, locally elected advisory body to the King County Council representing all rural unincorporated area residents living in the Tahoma School District. Meetings are held the first Monday of each month. A public comment period at the beginning of each meeting provides citizens an opportunity to voice issues of concern to Area Council members and County and State government officials in attendance. Visit the council’s website: www. greatermaplevalleyareacouncil.org for more information on your Area Council and rural issues. Those who live in the Tahoma School District outside the city of Maple Valley, are eligible to become a member of the Area Council. Rural area citizens interested in applying can mail a brief letter of interest to GMVUAC, P.O. Box 101, Maple Valley, WA 98038 or e-mail gmvac_chair@ hotmail.com. The next monthly meeting will be 7-9:30 p.m. Monday, July 2, at the Fire Station at 231st Street and Maple Valley Highway.

Kent Crusaders Rugby Club opens doors for players but also brings people together on and off the pitch BY KRIS HILL khill@covingtonreporter.com

Rugby opens doors, it brings people together, and that’s why Kentlake High graduate Devon Vieira loves it. “One the field you’ll be playing against girls you

think are the worst,� Vieira said. “Afterward there’s socials and the home team feeds the team that traveled. You’ll talk and find that you have a lot in common with those girls you just thought you were terrible.� Vieira began playing in eighth grade when went

out to a Kent Crusaders rugby club practice. Up that point she had been a soccer player. “A friend of mine wanted to stay in shape during the offseason, so, she suggested we play rugby,� Vieira said. “I had literally never heard of it before but I heard there was tackling so it was really intriguing for me.� And then her friend who

suggested they check it out wasn’t able to play. So, it was just Vieira and a bunch of rugby girls she didn’t know. Vieira was intimidated because she was the youngest player there. After the first practice, though, she had a feeling rugby could have a place in her life. “I was really pleased with

it because it was such a new sport and I kind of knew at that point I had potential in it,â€? Vieira said. “Also, the girls were all so kind. The girls were coming up to me, introducing themselves and offering me rides. And the coach ‌ he’s just awesome.â€?

Sports Note DOG DAYS CHARITY EVENT SET FOR AUG. 17-19 AT PACIFIC RACEWAYS NEAR COVINGTON Machinists Union District Lodge 751 is once again teaming up with Pacific Raceways for their annual “Dog Days� charity fundraising event. The annual Pacific Raceways Guide Dogs Fundraiser will run Aug. 17-19 at the Pacific Raceways drag strip, 31001 144th Ave. S.E. in unincorporated Kent.

[ RUCK from page 12] the head football coach there for the past eight seasons, is the U19 girls coach for the Crusaders. Rugby opened doors for Norris and Vieira said he helped her find opportunities through the sport. Vieira, who just graduated from Kentlake in June, will attend Quinnipiac University in Connecticut to play rugby. “I would not be going to this school if it wasn’t for Norris, either, because he believed in me all along and he pushed me and saw potential,� Vieira said. “From Rex Norris day one he told me rugby would do great things in my life.� For Norris, who led the U19 team to a 26-3 record this past season with losses only to the national champions and the runner up to go along with the team’s 12th state championship, rugby has been a part of his life for quite some time. A native of west Texas, Norris moved to the area and met a guy who knew Tom Ingles, the former head football coach at Kentwood. When they found out he had played rugby in college and he could coach, Norris got his foot in the door at the school. More importantly, Norris met his wife thanks to a trip with the rugby squad to France. “It helped me get this job, it helped me get married, it’s flown me all over the world,� Norris said. The U19 squad draws girls from close to 10 schools in the area, not just the Kent high schools, and it’s helped open doors for Cassidy Meyers. While Meyers may now be known for winning a state wrestling title this past winter as a junior at Kentwood, rugby may well be where her long term future is in athletics. Meyers took up rugby in seventh grade after learning about it from a classmate. “I thought it was kind of interesting,� Meyers said.

District 751 is selling discount tickets for Pacific Raceways’ NHRA Lucas Oil Divisional top fuel dragster and funny car races, which will take place that weekend. Tickets are $5 and good for one day’s entry to the races. Tickets are on sale at all District 751 union halls in Puget Sound, including the Auburn Hall at 201 A St. S.W. In addition to the professionals, amateur racers from District 751 will take part in the weekend’s activities, said Robley Evans, who heads up the Pacific Raceways event for the union. “There are probably 15 Machinists Union guys who race,� he said. “Everything

from drag racers to motorcycles.� All proceeds will go to Guide Dogs of America, a California-based charity that provides service dogs to people across North America who are blind or have impaired vision. Machinists District 751 is the top fundraiser for Guide Dogs of America. Last year, members of the union collected more than $263,000 for the charity. Originally formed in 1935 to represent hourly workers at the Boeing Co., District Lodge 751 of the International Association of Machinists & Aerospace Workers now represents some 32,000 working men and women at 48 employers across Washington, Oregon and California.

“When I first started playing it was all really confusing. I had no clue what was going on and why there were doing the things that they were doing. After I had played in some games it was a lot of fun. There was adrenaline constantly pumping through your body. And the girls on the team, they kind of change you in a way when you got to know them.â€? Anyone can play rugby, Meyers said, there is no stereotypical type of body or person. Like Vieira, Meyers is a former soccer player, having grown up playing the sport. Meyers didn’t try out for club soccer this year. Vieira stopped playing after her freshman season of high school ball. And like her teammate, Meyers wants to focus on rugby, especially now that she’s a member of the U21 national team. In June she played in Colorado with the national team and will play in New York in July. “When I started looking at the most passionate sport I was in and I had to start focusing since these opportunities were coming in, I had to look at what I wanted to do,â€? Meyers said. “Being on the United States U21 team is just a great feeling.â€? And if Meyers puts in the work, she has a shot at playing in the world cup, possibly even in the 2016 Olympics. Those opportunities were just too hard to pass up. Rugby may also open doors to college. Meyers has been talking to a school back east about playing rugby there. Her senior year at Kentwood she will play soccer in the fall for the Conquerors and she plans to wrestle in the winter. Once wrestling is over in late February she’ll be ready to play again with the Crusaders rugby team which starts practice in January and plays through the end of May. Maybe along the way she’ll find some more rugby players. “If I go up to someone that has played sports before ‌ I tell them that rugby is better than the sport they’re play-

ing,� Meyers said. “I tell them to come out and hit some girls and release some of that anger. As long as you can catch a ball and you can put one foot in front of another you can play.� She guarantees that anyone who tries it will fall in love with rugby. Vieira has done her share of recruiting. She would often walk through the halls of Kentlake and see a girl she thought had potential. “I really just emphasize the fact that they’re playing with the Kent Crusaders, that they’re not just going to be part of a team, that it’s like a family,� Vieira said. “I’ve met some of my best friends on the team. Rugby season is one of the best times of the year because it’s so much fun. You meet new people from all over and you travel a lot. Even though rugby is intimating anybody can do it and excel at if they want to.� And it’s not just girls. Norris’ entire defensive line played rugby. And it doesn’t hurt that rugby opens doors. Norris added that there have been more than 30 Crusaders players, boys and girls, who have been on the national team. “It’s very rare at the end that I don’t have a kid who tells me that they love the sport more than any other that they’ve played,� he said. It seems like Vieira is right — rugby does open doors and brings people together.

Doctors and patients alike are becoming more conservative when prescribing antibiotics since so many strains of bacteria are becoming resistant to treatment. Middle ear infections in children may be the illness most commonly treated with antibiotics. Close behind is the treatment of sinus infections in adults. New research shows that antibiotics are usually unnecessary for this illness. Adults who were administered a placebo responded in the same amount of time as adults who were given a dose of amoxicillin. This is because the cause of most sinus infections is viral, not bacterial, and viruses don’t respond to antibiotics. It may be a case of old habits dying hard since many people with sinusitis are simply used to being treated with antibiotics. The new guideline is to be more conservative with antibiotics, using them only when absolutely necessary. Sinus infections are commonly caused by viral infections, which do not respond to antibiotics. Talking with your healthcare provider will help you determine whether treatment with antibiotics is needed for your acute sinus infection. To schedule a medical appointment, please call Southlake Clinic at (253) 395-1972. Our primary care providers are part of a multi-specialty physician network and are also available on Saturdays.

Do baby teeth really matter?

YES – they matter a lot! Decayed or decaying baby teeth can potentially represent active infection in the mouth. Anytime there is infection in the body or mouth, it requires immediate attention by a physician or dentist, respectively. Long term, if baby teeth are left to rot, fall out, or get extracted, there is greater potential for permanent teeth to grow in and shift requiring future orthodontic care.

to pay ATM surcharges and why banks had to pay interest rates on long-term deposits. Money that I can spend right now is always worth more to me than money I am promised in the future. In the case of a waiting list, seniors are asked to give money now to get something later. This goes against that basic economic principle of “money now� and the most likely reason why we find so few names on waiting lists. Investment in a waiting list grants an intrinsic return, preparation in the event of the crisis moment, and who of us can put a price tag on that. It’s an investment that your family will thank you for.

James D. Winston

James D.Winston, 85, died peacefully at home on June 8, 2012. Jim was born in St. Paul, Minnesota on August 15, 1926 to James A. and Margaret L. Winston. In 1941, Jim moved to Seattle, where he attended Ballard High School. Jim, also known as ‘Red’, was active in high school, taking on leadership roles, such as Vice President of Boy’s Club and Senior Class President. He graduated as Valedictorian of Ballard High School in 1944. Upon graduation, Jim served in the United States Army in the South Pacific Theater. Returning home with a disability, many months of rehab were required prior to Jim continuing his education at the University of Washington in the pre-med program. As fate would have it, while socializing with college friends, he met his lifelong wife and companion, Gladys. Jim and Gladys were married on November 26, 1948. They established their home in the Seattle-Renton area, where they raised their three children. In order to support his new family, Jim began working at Todd Shipyard. Soon after, an opportunity for a civil service career presented itself and Jim began a career of almost 40 years of civil service with the U.S. Navy in the Thirteenth Naval District. Jim excelled at his work and became the Contracting Officer for all shipbuilding and repair on the west coast for the U.S. Navy. He was intimately familiar with naval vessels and enjoyed his profession. Upon retirement, Jim was honored by the United States Navy with a Meritorious Civilian Service award. Retirement years allowed Jim and Gladys to actively pursue their love of touring and viewing the natural wonders of the National Parks and Monuments. Jim had a love and appreciation of reading, music, museums and engineering feats such as railroading and hydroelectric dams. Jim was preceded in death by his wife Gladys, who died on March 15, 2011. Jim is survived by his sons Michael (Jean), Kevin (Rebecca) and daughter Valerie Winston Healy (Stephen); grandchildren Britton, Christian, Ryan, Heather, and Hannah; eight great grand children, and many extended family members. A Memorial Mass was held at St. Barbara Catholic Church, on Saturday, June 23, 2012. Interment was on Monday, June 25. at Tahoma National Cemetery with full military honors.

best chance to move into this preferred community when the time is right. While general education about the senior living communities in your area is good, nothing secures that spot for crisis moments like getting your name on the waiting list. I worked with a family a while back to get their mother on the waiting list, telling me they didn’t think she would need to move for several months. However, just two weeks later I took a call from one of the daughters who said they needed a spot as soon as possible because their mother had taken a mental turn for the worse unexpectedly. Because of their place on the waiting list, we had a spot for them immediately. If waiting lists are such a good idea, then why aren’t there more names on them?

Most communities, ours included, will ask for a 100 percent refundable deposit up front, and once we have that, we are legally obligated to give you preference once the room of your choice opens up. You of course can decline to move in at that time without hurting your place in line. We call this first right of refusal. What is the benefit of getting on a waiting list? Unfortunately life, and the aging process, is unpredictable at best. One of the biggest issues I see families run into is in being generally unprepared

COMMENTARY

Talk to any senior living facility, whether it be independent care, assisted, or skilled nursing, and the Director of Marketing and Sales will tell you that their community has a waiting list. Ask them how many people are on that waiting list, and the answer will be shockingly low. Most communities have waiting lists with zero to five residents. How does a waiting list work? A waiting list is essentially a priority spot in line, much like paying for early boarding on an airplane. The best seats and prime overhead luggage spots go

Teen brings punk and circumstance to pageant that fear. “I wanted to know that I could actually do stuff in front of a crowd,� she said. “If I could get in that would be rather miraculous.� After checking out the website to make sure it was legitimate and not merely spam, Lane Linblom and her parents signed up for the competition, all the while thinking that they wouldn’t be involved for very long due to their lack of knowledge and experience. “We are not (what you would call) a pageant family,� Marie Lindblom said. “We never coached her, trained or practiced. We thought the experience was to be the experience of the pageant. Every week we expected someone to tell us ‘Don’t come back.’� Lane Lindblom said her impression of a pageant concerned lots of hairspray and multiple stages of elimination. During the first interview, she was asked why she wanted to be there. She replied that as a child she had once desired to participate in a pageant, but never got the chance. “I said it was time to live up to my childhood dream,�

she said. After passing the first round of questions, she then came back the next week. Although the pageant proved to involve less hairspray than she had originally thought, she still struggled with various aspects of the competition, including the walk routine as part of their stage performance. “I was really nervous,� Lane Lindblom said. “I don’t think I’d been in front of a crowd that big. I was thinking, ‘If I don’t do this right I’m going to look like a fool.� Additionally, Marie Lindblom said finding suitable attire for Lane proved to be an adventure unto itself. “They said she needed evening wear,� the elder Lindblom said. “Evening wear? She’s 14!� Uncertain of where to go, their personal odyssey took them through Seattle’s various department stores in search for a dress that would both fit and seem appropriate for the teen. Finally, they found a dress at Betsy Johnson’s which they felt fit with Lane’s personality. For the informal wear, she wore an anime outfit along with her father’s tie and a black shirt. Marie Lindblom said she had to fight with Lane to get her to wear any mascara

Tahoma Junior High students decides to give beauty competition a try for fun BY TJ MARTINELL tmartinell@maplevalleyreporter.com

Imagine if Wednesday Addams from The Addams Family television show participated in a pageant. Now imagine if she took third place. Lane Lindblom is a real life Wednesday Addams who did just that. The 14-year-old Tahoma Junior High student and Japanese culture aficionado — she described “Avatar: Last Air Bender� as a “starter kit� for Anime — first got involved when a letter randomly arrived in the mail advertising about the Miss Jr. Teen Seattle pageant competition. “I thought, ‘Well, why not?� Lane Lindblom said. Her mother, Marie Lindblom, said they never quite figured out why she got sent the letter. “To this day we suspect it was a teacher,� she said. Lane Lindblom said what attracted her to it was the idea of doing something new. Even though she says she is comfortable talking to friends in an informal setting, she becomes nervous when presenting a speech in class. The pageant, to her, was an opportunity to confront

Lane Lindblom accepts third place at the Miss Jr. Teen Seattle pageant competition. Lindbom, 14, originally learned of the pageant after receiving a letter in the mail. COURTESY PHOTO “She looked like a Catholic school girl,� Marie Lindblom said. “It’s a little bit punky, but it’s her.� During her interview with the judges, she was told beforehand that she did not have to give “politically correct� answers, which made her feel unprepared when she was asked by one of the judges what she would do to change the world. She responded by discussing the tradition in certain African tribes of forcing girls to marry once they turn 12, well before they are physically or emotionally prepared to become

mothers. Lane Lindblom said she learned about this tradition in the seventh grade. When it came time to announcing the top finishers, Lane Lindblom said when she heard her name called for third place she was in a state of disbelief. Eventually they had to call her name out again. “At first, there was nothing going on in my head,� she said. “I asked others girls ‘Did they call my name.’ It might have been an accident.� Marie Lindblom said she had to scramble to get her

camera out, as she had not expected her daughter to advance so far. While Lane Lindblom said her third place win allows her to advance to other competitions, this is as far as she plans to go. Not only would they have to pay for travel expenses, but she said she has accomplished what she set out to do. “After she took third she said, ‘Okay, we’re done now,’� Marie Lindblom said.
