City mulls property tax levy to pay for parks, streets BY STEVE HUNTER shunter@kentreporter.com

Kent voters could face a property tax levy measure in November to help pay for city park and street projects. The Kent City Council also is considering a possible business tax as part of a package to help pay to fix up deteriorating streets

and parks. “We know this is a difficult process but we’re only trying to preserve infrastructure we have so it does not deteriorate further,” said Council President Dennis Higgins during a phone interview. “We hope the community recognizes that and gets behind it.” No decisions have been made

yet by the council. But in order to get a property tax levy measure on the Nov. 6 ballot, the council must submit the measure to King County Elections by Aug. 7. “We may need to set a special meeting for Aug. 2 about whether to put it on the ballot in November,” Higgins said. The council did not have the

proposal on its agenda Tuesday and does not meet again until Aug. 7 unless it calls a special meeting. The council formed citizen committees earlier this year to come up with recommendations for parks and street funding and to help prioritize projects. Those recommendations went to an

Details remain sketchy as Kent Police investigate a fight among numerous men Sunday near Meridian Middle School in Kent that left seven injured with nonlife threatening injuries. A Kent man who witnessed the fight contacted the Kent Reporter by email Tuesday and estimated as many as 60 men and a dozen or so cars showed up at the school parking lot. He said two groups showed up to fight and many of them were carrying bats and sticks. Police have not made any arrests, according to an email Monday from Sgt. Jarod Kasner. Officers are trying to figure out what started the fight at about 2:26 p.m. in the school [ more FIGHT page 3 ]

Frustrated striking factory workers rally Robert Bruner, a Davis Wire factory worker, addresses a crowd at a community strike rally Tuesday at the Kent plant. MARK KLAAS, Kent Reporter

BY MARK KLAAS mklaas@kentreporter.com

A lingering strike is taking its toll on 85 Davis Wire mill employees in Kent and their families who joined labor and religious leaders and elected officials to voice their dismay with the impasse at an emotional community rally Tuesday. Union workers went on strike May 21, claiming poor

working conditions and inadequate compensation. Recent negotiations have gone nowhere, union leaders said, and workers are prepared for a long fight. Earlier Tuesday, striking workers converged at the King County Courthouse in Seattle, where 60 employees officially filed individual lawsuits, alleging the company has created “sweatshop-like” conditions by working employees off the

clock and denying them rest and meal breaks in an unsafe environment. They also claim the company is failing to pay them statutorily required overtime wages. “What we are asking for is very modest in our contract,” said Robert Bruner, a 15-year Davis Wire employee who is among the original plaintiffs [ more RALLY page 5 ]

Man faces court date for animal cruelty charge BY STEVE HUNTER

KENT FIRE DEPARTMENT RECEIVES FEDERAL GRANT TO HIRE 4 FIREFIGHTERS The Kent Fire Department Regional Fire Authority will receive a Department of Homeland Security two-year grant of $811,704 to hire four firefighters next year. Fire department officials recently received notice that the two-year grant application had been approved, according to a Kent Fire Department media release. The grant, titled Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER), will allow the department to hire, outfit, train and cover the wages of four new firefighters. Kent currently has nine firefighter positions that are unfilled as the fire department works to keep costs down. The grant will help reduce the shortage by almost half. The grant differs from a previous SAFER grant the department received several years ago in that there is no matching dollars or contribution necessary from the fire department. One hundred percent of this $811,704 grant is covered through Homeland Security.

charged Steven William Cole on May 14 for first-degree animal cruelty after he allegedly shot a neighbor’s dachshund in the leg with a pellet gun for reportedly “crapping� on his property. Cole pleaded not guilty May 24 in King County Superior Court at the Norm Maleng Regional Justice Center in Kent. At his hearing, a trial date could be set or attorneys could ask for more time to prepare the case. Cole had a hearing June 26 continued to July 23.

If convicted, Cole could receive a sentence of up to one year. The incident occurred March 31 in the 29800 block of 159th Lane Southeast in unincorporated Kent, south of Covington. A neighbor of Cole’s reported to the King County Sheriff ’s Office that Cole shot her dog Zeus, a 7-year-old dachshund, as she and her children were planting a tree in their front yard, according to charging papers. A vet removed a pellet from the dog’s leg and put the leg in a cast.

King County donates big to Kent Food Bank REPORTER STAFF

The County’s Facilities Management Division recently delivered cases of canned soup, meat and fruit to the food bank.

Wanted suspect in East Hill shooting turns himself in BY STEVE HUNTER shunter@kentreporter.com

A Kent man wanted by Kent Police in connection with an East Hill shooting turned himself in Monday at the Norm Maleng Regional Justice Center in Kent. King County prosecutors allege the man shot at an unarmed man multiple times in broad daylight at a Kent apartment complex in what appears to be an unprovoked attack.

Wendall Oliver Adams Jr., 26, showed up with family members at the county jail at the Regional Justice Center and told officers he had seen himself on Q13 Fox’s Washington Most Wanted List, according to David Rose of Q13 and King County Sheriff ’s Office spokeswoman Cindi West. Kent Police had been looking for Adams since he reportedly shot and injured a man July 8 during an altercation at the Sum-

merwalk Apartments in the 22400 block of Benson Road. Paramedics transported the man to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Officers booked Adams on Monday into the county jail for investigation of first-degree assault, according to jail records. Bail was set at $500,000 for Adams, who has approximately nine felony convictions, according to charging papers. Adams is scheduled to be arraigned Monday, July 23 at the Regional Justice Center.

Some were residents (of Kent) and some were from nearby locations.� Kasner said the fight wasn’t gang related or a random act of violence. He said shots were reported as being fired, but officers did not have any reports that the shots struck anyone. “I don’t have any definitive answers at this point,� he said. Kasner said he did not know the extent of the injuries to the men other than the injuries were not life threatening. The Kent man who saw the fight said the well-dressed men were Middle Eastern and ages 30 to older than 60. He said it appeared obvious they had agreed to meet at the school parking lot to fight as vehicles arrived at around the same time. “Both groups went at a full charge, colliding into a swarm of swinging bats,� he said. “I could see multiple people on the ground at this point, more than the seven reported. We did hear three sounds that could have been mistaken for gunfire, but it could also be cars hitting each other. People were still in their cars driving around like it was real life bumper cars. I saw with my own eyes people getting hit and falling to the ground. The whole thing took only a couple minutes.� When the men heard sirens, most started to flee. “This part was just as crazy as the fight, as cars were hitting each other and car bumpers were breaking off, and a SUV left with the back hatch open and had so many people in it a head rest flew out of the car,� the witness said. “I saw people picking up fallen members and putting them in the cars before they left as well as others trying to carry wounded men off into the wooded area on the other side of the football field.� The witness said the neighborhood is generally quiet. He said he had never seen any fight similar to this. “I have been describing the fight as old-fashioned Roman warfare,� he said. “This is one of the craziest things I have ever witnessed.�

[ MEASURE from page 1 ] The levy would raise about $29 million over six years, $18.3 million for parks and $10.7 million for streets as 23 cents per $1,000 would go to parks each year and 14 cents per $1,000 to streets. The levy would expire after six years. The ballot measure would describe the park and street projects to be paid for and require a simple majority. But a property tax levy alone would not cover the long-term street maintenance needs, Higgins said. The committee also recommended that a new business tax be implemented to raise as much as $4 million to $6 million per year and that city administrators find $2 million per year in efficiencies in the city budget to go toward street maintenance. The options for a business tax could be a per employee tax similar to what the city of Renton does; a business and occupation tax or a business license fee. “I want to stress that I personally don’t want to do anything to put Kent at a disadvantage with our peers,� Higgins said about a business tax. “But we’re working with the business community to find a way and figure out what the tax would look like.� Discussions have heated up lately because of the approaching ballot measure deadline. If the council doesn’t refer a measure to voters in November, decisions about how to raise more revenue for streets and parks will become part of the 2013-14 budget discussions, Higgins said. Higgins said past budget cuts to street maintenance have left many streets in bad shape. “We had a situation that in order to make ends meet we were skimping on

City officials hope to secure a funding mechanism to help pay for the cost of repairs to its wearing streets. REPORTER PHOTO street maintenance to about $9 million per year,� Higgins said. “We need about $10 million (in maintenance) per year and we’ve done under a $1 million per year. If we don’t do anything, we’ll need complete reconstruction and not just a paving job. “We’re not building Taj Mahal, we’re keeping care of what we’ve got. I would not be doing my duty if I did not help find a way to address this.� City Parks Director Jeff Watling said a system of 55 parks, many built in the 1970s, 80s and 90s, now needs repairs. “What came out very clear from conversations with the citizens group is we have a park system the community is very proud of and has been invested in over the last 30 to 40 years but like a lot park systems it is showing its age,� Wa-

tling said during a City Hall interview. Watling said the key now is to reinvest in current park structures rather than spending money on new projects. He said smaller repairs have been done over the years but now larger repairs are needed. “Think of it like a house,� Watling said. “You go through living in your house and you’ll replace the light bulbs and filter in the furnace and appliances but at some point in time you’ve got to replace the roof. After repainting a couple of times, you might need to replace the siding. “We’re at that point in the age of our park system where these are pretty significant replacements we need to address that just comes with age.� One example is the deteriorated Lake Meridian Park swimming and fishing dock that King County built in the 1980s. The estimated cost of that repair is $1.5 million. A list of proposed parks repairs recommended by the citizens group also includes $1.8 million for Wilson Playfields to replace the synthetic turf, repair damaged fence posts and construct a new picnic shelter; $1.8 million for Lake Fenwick Park to replace the floating walkway and the eastern stairs, repave the middle parking lot and pave the boat launch; $932,000 for Kent Memorial Park to repair or replace the restroom, bleachers and parking lot. The list of park projects also includes a few new items, including $3.1 million for Russell Road Park to convert one field to multi-use synthetic turf and replace the restroom; and $2.8 million for two to four new multi-use fields at the Kent Phoenix Academy, a project to be done in partnership with the Kent School District, which owns the 2.5 acre site.

Kent road closure: South 208th To make way for Schneider Homes’ Copper Ridge housing development, the city of Kent approved the contractor’s request to close South 208th Street from 92nd Avenue South to 96th Avenue South beginning Friday, July 20. The street will be closed for the total reconstruction and widening of the roadway as required by King County’s construction standards. “Besides an entrance to the development, the project also includes removal of most of the existing roadway, the construction of four retaining walls, a new water main, and alignment and widening of the roadway,� said Brennan Taylor, Kent’s Development Engineering Manager. “These improvements will also increase safety and sight distance for drivers.�

Signs will direct drivers to use the following detour routes: t8FTUCPVOEUSBÄ? D will be directed north on 96th Street to South 202nd Street, then west to 92nd Avenue South. t&BTUCPVOEUSBG fic will be directed south on 84th Avenue South to South 212th Street, then east on 212th Street to 96th Avenue South. Taylor says due to the steep slopes along the roadway, it is important to complete the street improvements in the summer. “Working during the dry season provides a safer working environment for contractors and other individuals working on this project.â€? The roadway is expected to reopen Nov. 1. The Copper Ridge project consists of 39 townhomes originally applied for while in King County and approved by the city of Kent after annexation of the Chestnut Ridge area in 1994.

in the suit. “It’s terribly frustrating. They are still refusing to budge on anything. They still don’t think they’ve done anything wrong. ‌ “They don’t seem to care, as much as they should, for the workforce,â€? Bruner added. “The economy, the way that it is right now, they know there’s no jobs out there. Their standard answer is, ‘If you don’t want it, there’s the door.’ â€? Harry Stang, outside labor counsel for Davis Wire, said the company is prepared to take on the workers’ latest actions. “It’s all propaganda. It’s false and I can assure you the charges of the lawsuit will be vigorously defended,â€? he said. Bruner, 48, claims the company has pushed for greater productivity at the expense of working conditions and job safety. He says the Kent facility’s machines are old and worn out, and employees are working long and exhaustive shifts. In his years working as a galvanizer, Bruner has been repeatedly burned on his forearms. Tired of lead dust and smoke exposure, he went into fabrics. While on the job, he has torn a pectoral muscle, thrown out his shoulder, busted two fingers and nearly lost his right eye. Bruner understands it’s a difficult, hazardous job, but the company should be willing to make the factory safer, and put employees ahead of profits. “It shouldn’t have to be this way,â€? he said. “I’m hoping something gets done.â€?

their families are “getting by� with the help of a union emergency fund. State Sen. Karen Keiser, D-Kent, 33rd Legislative District, was among the dignitaries who spoke at the rally. She claims Davis Wire workers are “victimized� by poor working conditions and inadequate health care. Dave Freiboth, executive secretary of the M.L. King County Labor Council and the son of a machinist, says striking workers are tired of the company’s antics. “We have a lot of struggles in labor. They’re out to get us. They want to destroy the middle class, destroy what we got in terms of our economic viability,� he said. “They don’t get away with this. They don’t get to abuse you without answering for it.� The Teamsters’ original complaint, which was filed in King County Superior Court on April 30, describes sweatshop-like conditions, in which employees were pressured to work 12-hour shifts without a break and eat lunch at their work stations while

operating dangerous machinery. Davis Wire is one of four manufacturers in the Heico Wire Group. Over the last few years, four workers have been killed in industrial accidents at Heico facilities across the country, Teamsters said. At the Kent facility, workers have suffered serious injuries, including wire punctures, broken bones and mangled fingers, according to Teamsters. Stang said the union has been obstructive with concerns about safety issues. “There’s been no cooperation in safety improvements,â€? he said. The 85 workers at the Kent facility have been without a contract since Dec. 1. Stang would not elaborate on the strike’s details, nor expand on talks. Both sides held talks July 10 and 13, but no new negotiations have been scheduled, Stang said. “We don’t negotiate through the media,â€? Stang said. “Negotiations will be done at the table. ‌ Nothing has changed. They are more interested in propaganda than serious negotiations. “The company is trying to keep the Kent (plant) competitive, but the union doesn’t want to cooperate.â€? Davis Wire, which also operates plants in Irwindale, Calif., and Pueblo, Colo., is one of the largest wire manufacturers in the Western States. Products are used in a wide variety of fields, including agriculture, construction, transportation, communications and industrial applications.

Public assistance program broken I am sure that we all can agree that the public assistance program in Washington State is broken. There are a number of people are abusing the system (if you have doubts, go to the grocery store and watch the person in line to pay with food stamps talking on their iPhone). Some states have made steps to curb this abuse and been challenged in court. Let’s make drug tests mandatory to receive assistance. If you aren’t doing anything wrong, what is the problem to providing a sample? I believe that the public that is providing the tax revenue from which this assistance comes has a right to an assurance it isn’t being wasted. For Washington, let's take it a step further. If you are receiving assistance and you get convicted for a criminal act, your assistance is cut off retroactive to the date the crime was com-

“Would you support a property tax levy measure to help pay for city park and street projects?”

Dennis Box

?

Question of the week:

This has been grouchy week. I spent far too much time arguing with the city of Maple Valley because the staff refused to let one of my reporters into a hearing examiner proceeding that was supposed to be open to the public. I was not my normal Mr. Happy after I found that out. When city staff offered three different excuses, all wrong, about why the reporter was barred, my Mr. Happy meter crashed. There’s nothing like being open and transparent. Fortunately, I wrote a very grouchy column about it for The Maple Valley Reporter and it is all out of my system. I thought I should write this column about something much more important, something I have been pondering for some time. Has anyone else noticed women sometimes get their hair colored changed … a lot. It’s like magic. Why is it that women do all these things to their hair in these secret places and no one ever tells me what is going on? I remember one time I walked into a women’s haircut place near my office in Maple Valley. It had an indecipherable name on the window. The only reason I went in was to pay for Katy, my daughter’s … something, something, something. She wouldn’t tell me. Nothing like open and transparent. When I walked in a young woman at the counter looked at me like was from another solar system, until I pulled out my debit card. The numbers started spinning and I suddenly became dizzy. I know why the young woman thought I was an alien. Apparently some people assume I am hair challenged. Fine … I admit my hair flip is a little lighter these days, but I still have to mow

or incident response truck will be there to clear the roadway and protect drivers and passengers. If there is a collision on an interstate in Washington, you’ll see a sea of flashing red and blue lights from the State Patrol, aid cars and other emergency vehicles. That’s not the case in other states. For example, if you have a fender bender in neighboring Oregon, lots of luck.

The silence coming from the American media is deafening in regards to the investigation of Barclays Bank and others around the world. Apparently banks have been rigging interest rates for years and much damage has been done to the world’s financial sector and the public, but we are only now hearing about it – at least those of us who read the British press. One can’t help but wonder just how deep mismanagement of the financial sector runs? It is very sad that unless there is an angle involving violence, sex, race or civil rights, the media simply has no interest in informing the public.

– George Whitaker

This actually happened recently. A family member was on her way to work on Interstate 5 in Portland. Just beyond where I-405 merges with I-5, a pickup truck hit her car from behind. Our family member and the pickup driver managed to move both vehicles to the shoulder of the interstate. I got to the accident a half hour later and a Portland police officer pulled up just behind me. Fortunately, neither driver appeared to be seriously injured. The [ more MY TURN page 7 ]

www.kentreporter.com [ MY TURN from page 6 ] police officer examined both cars, asked if our car was drivable (it wasn’t), checked for leaking fluids, asked if I had called a tow truck, lit a flare and left the scene. No police report, no accident report, nothing. After more than two hours, another Portland police officer stopped, asked what had happened and if a tow truck had been called. When I said yes, he asked for an estimated time. I told him the dispatcher told me 45 minutes. He immediately called the towing service the police department uses and within 15 minutes our

[ BOX from page 6 ] my head every week. It’s not like I’m dead, at least I don’t think I am. Most people still talk like I am present in the room … except for Katy. When I drive by those salons and places with darkened windows and fancy names, I can’t help wondering what is really going on inside. The paranoid reporter comes out in me, but I am afraid to go in because I know some girl will give me that alien look from a Ray Bradbury book.

cars were off the interstate shoulder, and we were on the way to the emergency room to get checked out. The point is, citizens need and deserve a wellstaffed professional state patrol and emergency response system. Oregon’s state police force is about half the size of Washington’s, even though Oregon is a larger state. There is a noticeable difference in state trooper presence between the two states. In Washington, the State Patrol actively enforces speed limits, aggressive driving, construction zone safety, seat belt usage, and cellphone and texting violations. In our state, reckless

or intoxicated drivers are caught and punished. That’s because over the years, Washington governors and legislators have made highway safety a priority and kept our State Patrol strong. Since its modest beginnings with six motorcycle officers in 1921, the Washington State Patrol has become one of the premier law enforcement organizations in the nation with 1,600 investigators, support personnel, crime lab technicians and patrol officers. Each day, some 600 officers patrol our highways to help keep our roads and citizens safe. In contrast, budget cuts in Oregon have hurt that state’s police presence.

I now realize open and transparent does not apply to many things. Possibly Maple Valley and all the fancy things my daughter does that I pay for. It’s like some dark secret even God doesn’t know. They show up with fingernails from Picasso, hair that changes color or streaks or tints or something, and I always feel lost. I wonder if there is a public records request for women’s secrets. I bet it is better not to know or ask. I think it may be safer to deal with a city pretending to be open and transpar-

ent than to ask the wrong questions about a woman’s hair color, fingernails and the many things I will never comprehend. The passing years have proven one thing. I learned this in kindergarten while lying on a blanket fearing for my life. Girls are smarter than boys. Accept it and don’t ask dumb questions.

While traffic accidents will happen, it is comforting to know that in Washington, the response is swift and public safety is the highest priority. Having made that point, the best of all worlds is not to have an accident in the first place. Hopefully, people will slow down, drive safely and stow their cellphones until they get to their destinations.

Kent Police arrested a man for investigation of attempting to elude after he reportedly tried to speed away from an officer who spotted him racing another vehicle in the North Kent warehouse district. The incident started at about 3:18 a.m. July 8 when a 911 call reported about 30 vehicles racing in the 19000 block of 62nd Avenue South, an area known for illegal street racing, according to the police report. An officer in a marked Chevy Tahoe saw a Ford Mustang and a Ford F-150 pickup racing each other along 62nd Avenue South. He estimated the vehicles were going about 70 mph in a 35 mph zone. The officer activated his overhead emergency lights when the two vehicles approached the South 194th Street intersection. Drivers of both vehicles hit their brakes and skidded through the intersection. The pickup continued southbound on 62nd Avenue while the Mustang headed eastbound on 194th. The officer activated his siren to pursue the Mustang. The driver sped through the large Nabisco warehouse parking lot, 19062 62nd Ave. S., reaching speeds of about 70 mph before slamming on the brakes and coming to a stop at a 45-degree angle. The officer exited his vehicle with his gun drawn and ordered the driver

He said he became scared when he saw the patrol car and thought he could get away. He said it was a stupid move. Police booked the man into the city jail. The girls were released to the mother of one of the girls.

Possession of stolen property Officers arrested a woman for investigation of possession of stolen property after she allegedly tried to cash a stolen check for $300 at about 3:12 p.m. July 10 at a Bank of America at 12994 S.E. Kent Kangley Road. A bank clerk became suspicious when she noticed two types of ink and handwriting on the check, according to the police report. The clerk also discovered the signature on the check didn’t match the signature the bank had on file for the man’s name on the check. The woman claimed she had received the blank check from her aunt signed by a man she had done yard work for. The man denied giving the check or signing the check. He said he did know the woman as a

Liquor offense Police cited a 20-year-old man for investigation of minor in possession and disabled parking space violation after an officer saw the car illegally parked in a disabled parking space at about 2:29 p.m. July 7 at the Ridgeview Apartments, 1425 W. Smith St. The officer did not see a permit or plates for disabled parking on the Buick Regal, according to the police report. The driver told the officer he had just dropped a friend off at the apartments to go grab some clothes. The officer spotted a vodka bottle on the floor behind the driver’s seat. The man denied the bottle belonged to him. He said his friend left it there.

Assault Officers cited a man at large for fourth-degree assault and harassment after he allegedly punched another man at about 4:48 p.m. July 9 at the Circle K gas station, 20727 108th Ave. S.E. A man told officers he was punched six to eight times in the face, head and

Des Moines Police arrested a 19-year-old woman for investigation of first-degree assault after she reportedly stabbed and injured a 24-year-old woman. The woman stabbed the other woman three times during an altercation at about 1:16 a.m. Monday in the 21600 block of 28th Avenue South, according to a Des Moines Police media release.

shoulder by the man as he attempted to pump gas, according to the police report. The man said a Lexus drove up and a man jumped out of the passenger side. He said he recognized the man as an old friend but he had not seen him in years. The man reportedly punched him numerous times and then got back in the Lexus and left. Officers were unable to locate the man, who reportedly had a previous incident with Kent Police when he fired a gun into the air.

Burglary Police arrested a man for investigation of residential burglary after he reportedly kicked in the door of a house July 10 in the 900 block of West Meeker Street. A couple of city of Kent employees reported the incident after they saw the man kicking a door at a house, according to the police report. An officer went to the home and the resident said he heard a loud noise and when he went to his front door he saw a man standing inside the house. The intruder fled when he saw the man and did not take anything. Police had a description of the man and an officer spotted him a short time later and arrested him after witnesses confirmed he was the same man they had seen at the house. The man declined to talk to police. King County Sheriff ’s Office deputies and the Des Moines Police responded to a report of a fight. When officers arrived, they found the victim. They also found the 19-year-old woman at the scene and took her into custody without incident. Paramedics transported the older woman to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Officers determined that the two women, who were in a former domestic relationship, met, argued and then fought. Detectives are investigating to determine what led to the altercation and stabbing.

and pacing until I felt it really was ready.” Grub Street Reads encourages higher readership of indie authors by providing a quality standard for independently published novels. The Grub Street Reads Endorsement is given to those books that pass an evaluation process based on the fundamental qualities of good storytelling, including well-developed characters, strong pacing, a well-researched world and a powerful overall voice. “Mass Murder” is a paranormal mystery novel set in Bohart’s hometown of Sierra Madre, Calif. Detective Giorgio Salvatori is called in when a woman is found dead, hanging by her bra strap in the supply closet of the Catholic monastery. As a former New York detective, he’s seen the worst humanity has to offer, but he doesn’t have a good feeling about this case.

Soon, his suspicions are borne out when a second body is found buried in the garden, and days later, one of the monks is found floating face down in the duck pond. To complicate matters, the specter of a young boy who committed murder and then suicide back in the 1940s, appears to be sending a message. Bohart holds a master’s degree in theater and currently runs the Renton Community Foundation. She also did a short stint writing for Renton.Patch. com. She will teach a class titled, “Writing the Mystery Short Story” for Kent Parks and Recreation this fall, as well as through Green River Community College’s Continuing Education program. “Mass Murder” is available for sale as an eBook on Amazon.com for only $2.99.

Homeowners, city make environmental improvement REPORTER STAFF

The Kenton Firs Neighborhood Association – in partnership with VetsCorps volunteers – recently logged hundreds of hours grubbing, cleaning, pruning and clearing a community greenbelt. More than 50 people – young and old – were part of the work group. Families, grandparents with grandchildren, relatives and friends also turned out to help. The Kenton Firs turned its annual spring cleanup into a partnership with the city of Kent Neighborhood grant program with the goal

to reclaim a common area from invasive plants and restore a natural habitat at the corner of 113th Avenue Southeast and Southeast 227th Place. Matching funds from Kenton Firs garnered a $5,000 neighborhood grant from CITY the city. Board member Marsha St. Louis conducted the environmental research and drew up the plan. Besides environmental stewardship, the project is designed to improve safety and security in the neighborhood. An additional work day is being scheduled to complete the project.

But denture-wearers report that many undesirable side effects come along with this less-than-ideal solution: Dentures are uncomfortable to wear and often slip or click; they can cause bad breath, and require ongoing and inconvenient maintenance; they often result in a weak bite, a fakeORRNLQJVPLOHDQGDQRYHUO\DFWLYHJDJJLQJUHÀH[ Care and comfort aside, those with dentures also are prevented from eating many of the foods and participating in many of the activities they enjoy. With today’s science, there’s simply no reason for anyone to struggle with dentures. In fact, many of the problems denture wearers struggle with can be solved in just one day* with the help of your ClearChoice team of dental implant professionals.

THE SOLUTION IS DENTAL IMPLANTS. Dental implants provide far better results than do dentures, because implants can prevent potential bone loss. Because they’re anchored into the jawbone, the fusion of the implant and bone provides stability, just as the natural teeth did. Implants perform and are cared for just like natural teeth! If you’re missing some or all of your teeth, dental implants can stimulate the bone, protect against atrophy and help preserve your natural facial features.

SHOWARE SHOOTOUT 3-ON-3 BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT SEEKS PLAYERS Participants are wanted to play in the second annual ShoWare Shootout 3-on-3 basketball tournament July 28-29 at the ShoWare Center in Kent.

Lauren Campbell is making the most of her oh, so short summer vacation. The 2009 Kentwood High graduate is spending her eight weeks off as an intern at The Boeing Co. in Everett. Campbell, who will be a senior at Northern Arizona University in the fall, is a mechanical engineering major who also plays volleyball for the Lumberjacks. And just because she’s got a full-time, paid internship at the aerospace giant doesn’t mean Campbell gets a break from her responsibilities as an athlete. “It seems to be my day is go to work, get home, eat, work out and go to sleep,” Campbell said. “I’ve been keeping up with all the weight lifting and all the volleyball stuff.” She has always known she wanted to pursue a career that involved math and science so becoming a mechanical engineer seemed like a logical path. Despite the demands of being a Division I student athlete with a major that requires rigorous math and science courses, Campbell has maintained a 4.0 grade point average according to her player profile on NAU’s athletics website, and was named to Capital One Academic All-America Division-I volleyball third

team, the first All-American in program history. Managing all of the, she said, requires exceptional time management. “I’ve been pretty good with keeping up with that kind of stuff,” Campbell said. “I have a planner that I use regularly. My whole life is in that thing.” She also credits the academic support the school provides her and other athletes who make sure players are on top of all of their academic requirements. Campbell also credits the NAU volleyball coaching staff for allowing the team to have time with family, especially over summer break, though it’s important to keep up with off season training. Being able to come home has been helpful, too, in allowing her to work last summer and this one in an internship that really helps her learn about her chosen field, network in her industry as well as provide a real-world perspective on all the theoretical classes she has taken. “Being around the area, especially if you want to be in engineering, you always look toward Boeing as the optimal place to work at but actually my dad has worked here for 25 years so that gave me a little bit of an in,” she said. “I’ve always wanted to work here, mainly because my dad has enjoyed it.

is our No. 1 goal,” she said. “We haven’t made it to it yet, we’ve been rebuilding, we’ve been a young team. This year we’re going to have a lot of seniors, this year should be good, we should be past this rebuilding stage and hopefully reach that goal. We’ve been playing for four years together so that chemistry should hopefully show on the court and we can get some wins.”

said. “They’re very into that kind of stuff and wondering what I did. It always makes me feel good that my teammates are supporting me and interested in what I’m doing.” Then it will be down to business on the volleyball court for Campbell, a 5-foot-8 outside hitter, who will be one of five seniors on the team this year. “We hope to get to the Big Sky championship.

I have enjoyed every second I’ve been here and to me this seems like a good company.” Her father started out as an engineer and has since moved into business operations in the 787 program, she said, while Campbell is interning in the 737 Max program. In her first summer at Boeing she spent a fair amount of time learning how the company works, especially the acronyms, “which is like a different language,” she said. “This year I’ve been working on specifications, documents, the overall requirements on a spoiler they’re going to use on a 737 Max,” she said. “I’m excited about that because I get to learn about the inner workings of one of the components of an airplane. What my lead told me when I first joined is I’m not going to treat you like an intern, I’m going to treat you like an employee. I think I’ve learned so much more being treated as an employee than as an intern so it’s been much more gratifying. It’s been a great opportunity.” When she gets back to Flagstaff, Ariz., July 31, Campbell will spend some time telling the team about what she did during her summer vacation during two-a-day practices and pre-season games. “Normally when I come back from my internship my teammates are very excited about it and want to know what I did,” she

For Kelli Sheldon, the coronation was validation. Kent’s newly crowned Miss Cornucopia considers the honor humbling, a reflection of her tireless, fulfilling work in the community. “I know that my work in the community is appreciated, meaningful to people,” said the 19-year-old Sheldon, moments after receiving the tiara and a $3,000 scholarship from the Kent Lions Club in a ceremony at Town Square Plaza on a sun-splashed afternoon last Friday. “I just want to be interacting with the community. Being Miss Cornucopia is a great way for me to meet everybody and celebrate our city.” Sheldon was a member of the royalty a year ago, serving as royal princess to Miss Cornucopia Tina Chen, a 2010 Kent-Meridian High School graduate who attends the University of Washington. This time, Sheldon was chosen from four finalists. She represented Kent in last Sunday’s Cornucopia Days Grand Parade, and plans to make several public appearances throughout the year, including the farmers market and Kent Winterfest. Sheldon also won the program’s Community Involvement Award. Candy Chang was chosen this year’s royal princess, receiving a $750 scholarship from the Kent Lions Foundation. Leah Watson and Ella Anguiano will serve as

princesses, with each receiving $500 scholarships from the foundation. Chang also received the Community Academic Award. Sheldon, daughter of Craig and Margene Sheldon of Kent, continues to stay connected to the community. She volunteers at Purrfect Pals, a no-kill cat shelter based in Arlington, and at FISH (Friends of the Issaquah Salmon Hatchery), where she talks to the public about the salmon’s life cycle and water issues, and helps the hatchery manager feed and maintain the stock. The scholarship prize will come in handy for Sheldon, who is studying environmental science at Western Washington University in Bellingham. She hopes one day to work in research for the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife. Sheldon was an honors student at Kentridge High School. She has been an avid square dancer since age 7. She played in the school band and participated in solo and ensemble competitions.

CITY OF KENT PUBLIC NOTICE SEPA THRESHOLD DETERMINATION Pursuant to KCC 11.03, Environmental Policy, the City of Kent has issued a threshold determination for the following: Mitigated Determination of Nonsignificance (MDNS) for: SANATAN DHARM MANDIR TEMPLE #ENV-2010-27, KIVA #RECC-2102500 The applicant proposes a twophase development to formally change the primary use of the site at 27123 104th Ave SE from a residence to a temple/gathering place. Due to a lack of site improvements, the site in its current use as a temple/gathering place is in violation of Kent’s development regulations. The subject site is zoned SR-4.5, single family residential & is identified by King County parcel number 2922059164. Phase I of the development includes construction of site improvements to bring the site into compliance with relevant codes to support use of the existing 1,107 square foot detached

garage building for temple purposes. An existing single family home will remain in residential use. Improvements include construction of a 29-stall parking lot with access onto 104th Avenue SE; frontage improvements along 104th Avenue SE, installation of appropriate stormwater drainage and detention systems (including an underground drainage vault) to serve both phases of this project; and installation of required site landscaping. Phase II of this project includes demolition of the existing buildings, and construction of a new two-story, approximately 9,140 square foot temple with an expanded parking lot. A site plan and conceptual building elevations for Phase II have been submitted as part of this review. When phase II is complete, primary access will continue to be taken from 104th Avenue Southeast. The completion schedule for Phase II improvements has not been identified, and will depend on the temple’s financial means. Comments are due for the above project by 4:30 p.m., August 3, 2012, to City of Kent Planning Services. For more information, contact Kent Planning Services at 220 Fourth Avenue S., Kent, WA 98032, Telephone: (253) 856-5454.

Water when you have no space: Apartment dwellers or those with a balcony or tiny patio can enjoy the sound of water and visiting hummingbirds by choosing a table-top recirculating fountain. Even a small water feature will add humidity, sound and the soothing look of water. Table top fountains can be found at home and craft

supply stores in kits that include the pump, water receptacle and tubing.

can also buy the container and special water plant fertilizer to get you started. Never use regular plant food near or in a water garden. The nitrogen will cause an excess of algae growth and this robs oxygen from the fish.

Water when you want to enjoy plants – but have little space:

Water when you have safety and maintenance concerns:

If you have room for a half wine barrel or similar sizes porcelain container you can enjoy growing miniature water lilies and floating plants and make a great home for a gold fish or two. Self-contained water gardens in pots work best when you pay attention to the delicate ecosystem that is created when you group plants, fish and water together. The best place to explore your options for a mini-pond like this is to visit a garden center or nursery that sells aquatic plants. This is where you

A recirculating pump and pondless waterfall is the answer if you have safety concerns about adding water to the landscape. A pondless water features includes a water fall that splashes into a bed of rocks and boulders and then the water drains below to a hidden catch basin and is recirculated back to the top of the waterfall. There is no standing water so no risk of drowning and very little maintenance. Simply use the hose to top off the water

collecting basin under the rocks every few weeks during periods of no rainfall. In our garden, the pondless waterfall we had installed 10 years ago needs filling just a couple of times during the summer. It runs all year long with no other maintenance, no algae buildup, no chemicals, no insects but plenty of birds, butterflies and a resident frog. There are many versions of a pondless water feature including large boulders drilled with a center hole that spouts a trickle of water. The water overflows from the top of the rock and is captured below the rock-filled basin. These drilled rock water features take up little room in the landscape but add plenty of drama especially when located near a front door or back patio and lighted at night.

KENT’S RAINIER YOUTH CHOIRS traveled to the Pacific International Children’s Choir Festival (PICCFEST) in Eugene, Ore., June 26-July 2, part of the Oregon Bach Festival.

The third week of July is time to harvest the cool season crops such as peas, lettuce, chard, radish and beets. Young plants of warm season crops such as corn, beans, cucumbers and squash will appreciate a side dressing of slow release or organic plant food this week as they gear up for big time veggie production. Side dressing is not a fashion statement – it refers to the technique of spreading a band of fertilizer along the side of a row of plants where the tips of the roots would be growing. Many veggie plants are in their adolescence and getting ready for peak growth so like teens everywhere they now have a huge appetite. July is a good month to
