Black Diamond master planned developments affirmed by Superior Court By Dennis Box Editor

Aaron Mahelona receives car keys and a handshake from Fugate Ford salesman Shayne McNeill Friday. Mahelona was awarded the car from Fugate after hitting a hole-in-one at the Enumclaw Chamber of Commerce golf tournament.

King County Superior Court Judge Patrick Oishi ruled Monday in favor of YarrowBay and the city of Black Diamond concerning the Land Use Petition Act appeal filed by Toward Responsible Development. TRD filed the appeal against YarrowBay’s two master planned developments, The Villages and Lawson Hills. The judge wrote in the orders, “TRD’s Land Use Petition fails to meet the standards set forth in RCW 36.70C.130(1) for granting relief.” The judge dismissed the petition “with prejudice” meaning the petition cannot be refiled in that court. The ruling can be appealed to state appeals

Wilkeson sets sights on numerous projects By Kevin Hanson


Wilkeson in the state Legislature. The trio make up the team from the 31st Legislative District. First among Wilkeson’s ambitious projects is a redesign of the downtown core, which takes in a short stretch of highway and a few side streets. In 2010, the city landed a grant that is paying for planning work. Johnson said there were more than 30 options when the process began and the ultimate goal is to “maintain the traditional look of the town.” That’s the intent, despite the potential for giving a new look to the highway, creating additional parking, upgrading sidewalks and lighting and adding bicycle lanes. Plans also show the possibility of providing some downtown creek access. Leaving town hall and hoofing it along Church Street, the crew headed for the ramshackle coke ovens, a historic reminder of Wilkeson’s mining past. The city has long talked about rehabilitating at least a few of the coke ovens, both as a source of community pride and to potentially attract visitors. The ovens were used in the early part of the 20th century to burn the impurities from the raw coal

ilkeson might be small in size, but that doesn’t keep the community from dreaming big. Buoyed by the optimism of Mayor Donna Hogerhuis, the historic mining town has platted a course of action that could – if everything comes to fruition – pay economic dividends for years to come. Items on the current agenda also aim to offer an immediate payoff in terms of community morale. City plans were spelled out in detail the afternoon of Aug. 22, when Hogerhuis hosted a session that included Sen. Pam Roach, Bryan Bowden of the National Park Service and Eric Johnson of the SheaCarr-Jewell engineering firm. Also attending were City Planner Kathy James and City Councilmen Ian Galbraith and Terry Endsley. “We’ve got a lot on our plate and so much of it involves the state,” Hogerhuis said when introducing Roach. The mayor intends to host a similar session for state Reps. Christopher Hurst and Cathy Dahlquist who, like Roach, represent

Black Diamond Mayor Rebecca Olness wrote in a message to the paper, “Once again the court confirms that the city followed the law and did the right thing.” The appeal was argued before the judge Aug. 3. The ordinances approving the two developments were passed unanimously by the Black Diamond City Council in September 2010.

Wilkeson Mayor Donna Hogerhuis, Bryan Bowden from The National Park Service and state Sen. Pam Roach stand in front of a coke oven in Wilkeson Aug. 22. Kevin Hanson, The Courier-Herald extracted from nearby mines. Bowden said a two-day work session in October will fine-tune plans, which could include everything from an interpretive trail to a small amphitheater. Bowden’s time and expertise has been made available to the city due to a grant Wilkeson received from the Park Service. Also on the city’s horizon is the building of a small skate park, a popular idea among many kids in the town of less than 500 residents. Hogerhuis said the city has applied for a state grant to build the concrete attraction not too many steps from

Town Hall. The city will know within a week or two how high it sits on the funding priority list. Also on the agenda is rehabilitation of Town Hall and stabilization of the creek that runs through town. Hogerhuis said the city has already received a $75,000 state grant to renovate Town Hall’s wood-frame windows that feature peeling paint and are far from energy-efficient. A grant has already paid to replace the hall’s old oil furnace with an modern heat-pump system that brought air conditioning to Town Hall.

Duck race, golf tourney to help charitable cause It’s duck season again – at least, that’s the claim made by members of the Enumclaw Regional Healthcare Foundation and Enumclaw Rotary. The two organizations are combining to promote the 23rd annual duck race, which raises money for charitable causes. This year’s duck race will take place Sept. 8. A change is that ducks will float down Boise Creek through the Enumclaw Golf Course, with perhaps as many as 4,000 ducks launched into the water near the 16th green. For many years, ducks plunged into the Green River at Flaming Geyser State Park; the past couple of years brought a duck drop, which the rubber ducks spilled over the side of a hot air balloon. Ducks are on sale for $5, available at the ERHF office, St. Elizabeth Hospital and the Enumclaw Chamber of Commerce. They also are being sold by Rotarians and mem-

bers of the Healthcare Foundation board. The first duck across the finish line will net its owner a $1,000 cash prize. Second place is a pair of round-trip airline tickets on Alaska Airlines and third place is a boat tour for four around Lake Washington. Four other prizes, all valued at $100 or more, will be awarded. On the same day, the Healthcare Foundation and Rotary are sponsoring a family-friendly golf tournament, with kids encouraged to participate. The fee of $35 per person covers nine holes of golf, one seat in a golf cart and refreshments on the course. The fee is $30 without a cart. The tourney will operate under a scramble format with four-person teams, with a shotgun start at 12:30 p.m. For more information about either event or to register for the golf tournament, visit or call 360802-3206.

Local hospital part of healthcare merger Enumclaw’s St. Elizabeth Hospital is one part in a newly-announced plan that would create a major healthcare system throughout the Pacific Northwest. Catholic Health Initiatives and PeaceHealth, two nonprofit health care systems, have signed a nonbinding letter of intent to create a new, regional system that would aim to improve care and access for individuals, employers and communities across the region. St. Elizabeth is owned by the Tacomabased Franciscan Health System, which is part of Catholic Health Initiatives, a faith-based system with headquarters in Englewood, Colo. The proposed – and yet unnamed – partnership would combine seven CHI hospitals in Washington and Oregon with nine PeaceHealth hospitals in Washington, Oregon and Alaska. The new organization would include nearly 26,000 employees and about 950 employed physicians serving in hospitals, physician clinics, outpatient care clinics, long-term care facilities, laboratories and private homes across the region. PeaceHealth is based in Vancouver,

Wash. The new organization, with annual revenues of almost $4 billion, would attempt to build on the strengths of both organizations to better manage care and resources in a rapidly changing health care environment. “As a part of Catholic Health Initiatives, we believe this partnership will expand and sustain our healing ministry that has been essential to the quality of life in our South Puget Sound communities since 1891,” said Joe Wilczek, Franciscan’s chief executive officer. Franciscan services that would become part of the new regional system include St. Elizabeth in Enumclaw, along with St. Joseph Medical Center, Tacoma; St. Francis Hospital, Federal Way; St. Clare Hospital, Lakewood; St. Anthony Hospital, Gig Harbor; the Franciscan Medical Group network of clinics, physicians, and professional providers in Pierce, King and Kitsap counties; Franciscan Hospice and Palliative Care; and all other Franciscan programs.

Look to R&B to find roots of today’s music People sometimes ask what I think of modern rock, rap and the pop scene in general. I usually say I don’t think much about it; that is, I rarely pay any attention to it. Consequently, if I’m asked where modern rock seems to be headed, I haven’t the slightest idea, though some of my favorite New York critics predict it’s headed to oblivion. Given the Justin Bieber phenomenon, I might suggest that within five years the members of America’s most popular bands will all be younger than 13 – unless the Rolling Stones are still on tour. If I’m not qualified to speak on today’s pop music and where it’s going, I can certainly tell you where it came from. Trust me on this one. The notion of rock ‘n’ roll was a creation

of the mass media as much as anything else. Back in the 1950s, the powers that be realized American youth – adolescents, really Wally DuChateau – had an enormous Columnist amount of money. How to tap into this market was the question of the day. So, the record companies and Hollywood teamed up with Madison Avenue and decided the best way to exploit teenage commerce was to promote the idea that kids were different from their parents; in other words, the notion that teenagers had a separate culture with their own music, movies, clothing and radio stations. Thus, James Dean became an overnight superstar, a mop of male hair became a symbol of rebellion, Dick Clark unleashed “American Bandstand”

Wally’s World

and no self-respecting teenager within a 50-mile radius of Seattle would listen to any radio station but KJR. While their parents enjoyed Benny Goodman’s swing and watched the Lawrence Welk TV show, American youth was listening to a new kind of music called rock ‘n’ roll. But in fact, there was really very little new about it. It was simply a new label for a musical style formerly called rhythm and blues. The “blues” came from legendry giants like Leadbelly and the tradition is currently carried on by performers like B.B. King. The “rhythm” came from many musicians in Memphis and New Orleans. One of the earliest, most renowned and most innovative proponent of R&B was the pianist and singer Fats Domino of “Blueberry Hill” fame. (Early rock ‘n’ roll really didn’t create a hell of a lot of anything, other than Presley’s pelvic gyrations, until it turned into hard rock in the late 1960s when, in fact, there actually was a

“generation gap” between kids and their parents.) Of course, today there are many R&B bands within the Greater Seattle region, promoting the fine tradition of Domino and Booker T. and the M.Gs. Locally, Craig Gamon’s group, “The Pleasure Hounds” is an excellent example. They deliver authentic, down-home, gut-level R&B. If you haven’t yet experienced their stylings, check them out some weekend in the ginmills around town. (They’ll be appearing Saturday at Rendezvous on Myrtle Avenue.) Whether the Hounds ever make it in the big leagues outside Enumclaw is anyone’s guess. They’re certainly good enough but R&B bands are a dime a dozen. Even the good ones. As with any art – whether music, writing, painting or whatever – how successful the practitioners become is determined not only by their products, but by who they know.

Time to start thinking about fall garden tasks Is it safe to use “gray water” to water my container gardens? By this I mean the left over water from cooking or washing? I live in a town with high water bills and my summer water bill is a shocker. R.T., email Shades of gray when it comes to reusing water can be a bit dirty – but never recycle water that has soap suds unless you are sure the soap is mild with no phosphates. This means if you hand wash your dishes with Ivory soap and then occasionally use the water in the dish pan to water your pots you’ll be fine. Don’t try to recycle water from washing clothes. A practical way to cut back on wasted water is to recycle the water from cooking vegetables. Just don’t salt the water and let it cool before using it to water houseplants, hanging baskets and container gardens. As a bonus the

The tip for happy bearded iris is to make sure you don’t plant the thick and knobby roots too deep. You can cut back the tall and spiky foliage to just 6 inches tall when you replant and toss out the older, center section of the iris corms.

The last week of August means the start of autumn maintenance and fall propagation in the garden. This is the time to cut back, take cuttings, dig and divide early-blooming perennials and start filling up the compost bin. Continue to harvest herbs, veggies and cut f lowers from the garden and keep all your beds weeded so the summer weeds don’t get a chance to f lower and go to seed. Watering is the most important task this week, especially if you want a landscape that will continue to look great all season. Remember to water slowly and deeply to train the roots of trees, shrubs and perennials to grow deep in search of moisture rather than stay at the surface of the soil. Drip lines, soaker hoses and improving your soil with compost and organic matter are all ways to cut back on the water bill.

ly and veterans, all done with faithful volunteers. So it was a sad day when the shed/storage building was broken into and yard equipment and tools were stolen. The stealing has not stopped and now someone decided they needed the new heat pump which, of course, provides heat in winter and air conditioning in the hot summer months. If the perp wanted the heat pump for scrap metal I wish they would have done the Moose a favor and taken the broken down, old pump instead. Any help through donations or volunteering would be greatly appreciated so this wonderful organization can continue to assist Enumclaw and the surrounding areas.

Existence of U.S. is currently at grave risk I must confess to being somewhat at a loss to understand (“In Focus” columnist) Rich Elfers at The Courier-Herald. Mr. Elfers ostensibly seems to be an advocate of kumbaya and “Can’t we all just get along?” What I get from his musings is conflicting interests and moral confusion in dealing with contemporary political and historical forces. I also find his understanding of historical political history to be somewhat shallow at times. To wit: liberals in the 1950s believed in individual freedom, small government and low taxation, exactly the reverse of today’s “liberals” that have evolved into “progressives” who

Balance of power a tricky test Henry Kissinger’s book, “Diplomacy,” is a fascinating study of two different approaches to foreign policy in the West. These two competing worldviews have deeply affected, and are still shaping the history of, the modern world. Kissinger begins by describing President Teddy Roosevelt’s brilliant balance of power approach to foreign affairs, and then he contrasts it with President Woodrow Wilson’s more idealistic moral diplomacy. Oddly, Wilson’s perspective has come to dominate international affairs more than Teddy Roosevelt’s. Let’s examine these two opposing views to glean a deeper understanding of the world we live in.

In Focus Rich Elfers Columnist

Teddy Roosevelt is probably one of our best-educated presidents in his understanding of how nations interact. Being born into a wealthy New York family in the latter 19th century, he had an early opportunity to travel the world and meet the monarchs and leaders of Europe and Asia and America. He learned

several languages; was a prodigious writer of books on many subjects, like botany, biology, history and politics; and his attitudes and actions are probably most responsible for the United States being the great world power it is today. Roosevelt imbibed the early 20th century diplomatic culture of Europe and made it his own. The attitude at the time was based upon what has come to be known as balance of power. The goal of balance of power is to keep any one European nation from dominating the other major powers. According to this worldview, nations

This building was owned by Pacific Coast Coal Company and the rooms were typically rented to single men who worked in the mines. Boarding houses and hotels would provide sleeping quarters, family style dining and a washroom where the miners could take baths at the end of a working day. Also lunches would be provided and clothes could be washed at the end of the week. King County Assessor photo dated November 28, 1939 of tax parcel #112106-9015-B

reject the provisions of the Constitution. German Nazis were “right wing”? The historical record is blindingly clear; World War II Nazis were proudly “National Socialists.” That the policies of the communist Soviet Union “caused the collapse” of that country leaving out that the “collapse” cost of (conservatively) 260 million murders of men, woman and children in less than 70 years. He chides us to not name evil for what it is in the name of what exactly? His latest overt attempt to calm the political waters seems to attempt use blind moral equivalence between the two current contenders for president. Gov. Romney he lists as a businessman, as if that completes his human outline, and mentions Romney’s family, religious and moral life that no matter what you think of him is boringly clean. His loss of his fortune, his earning it back in the best capitalistic tradition and his giving of millions of personal dollars to charity every year is not covered. As to President Obama he covers his history at light speed and claims his world view is “shaped” by his birth in Hawaii, “being raised in Indonesia” (Obama’s handpicked Illinois publicist listed him as born in Indonesia until 2012 when it became media fodder, but never mind); won his state Senate elections by forcing his opponents out of the elections by forcing release of divorce records by getting court orders; skips over his being raised by a cabal of family Marxists-

communists and Trotskyite “community activists” and a disturbing lack of information how he got into Ivy League schools since his records (including state Senate) are all under lock and key reviewable by no one. Admitted (in his own book) he was an illegal drug abuser. That he began his fundraising political career in Chicago in the living room of an unrepentant, bomb-making terrorist apparently. Nor his threeyear career of destruction of the American economy (“leveling wealth”) and world standing; crony capitalism support of political money bundlers (iceberg tip Solyndra among 14 other “Green” companies bankrupt) taking $800 (+/-) billion of our money with them. The existence of the United States is currently at grave risk and attempting to ignore the stated intent of the forces at play, redefining them and attempting to hide them under the wool blanket of moral equivalence making them more palatable to your world view, is a nonideology that historically brought us WWII, the Cold War (Vietnam) and the sand box. Pick a side Mr, Elfers, the universe does not allow you to be neutral. Although I hear the dark side has cookies…. Craig Sarver Bonney Lake

Thanks to all for making Night Out a terrific event

Out in Enumclaw. I heard about NNO last year when Trip explained the program at a Rotary meeting. It was just the push I needed to host a block party for my neighborhood. The committee makes it really easy by advertising the program, supplying invitations and fliers and sending representatives from the police and fire departments. They also supplied emergency preparedness information packets for all the guests. We had 20 to 30 neighbors who came by to get to know each other, including State Rep. Cathy Dahlquist, who lives on our street. I think everyone who attended gained something. I heard carpools may have been created and new parents met a possible babysitter. Personally, I got to hear about the history of my house from neighbors who have lived here much longer than I have. I was also able to thank the neighbor three doors down who shared his lovely blue iris bulbs with me last spring. And I got an invitation to see what Toastmasters is all about. I’ve also noticed more smiling and waving since our barbecue. These are simple things but they’re important to me. So thank you to my neighbors, to the LINCCK committee and especially to Trip Hart for helping to create a more friendly community. Wendy Walker Enumclaw

ELFERS FROM 6 act according to their own self-interest to gain advantage for themselves at the expense of other nations, forming and breaking alliances as events change. “Its (balance of power) goal was not peace so much as stability and moderation” (P. 21). Foreign policy morality and the standards of private morality are distinct in this view. Where an individual would be expected to be honest a nd concerned about the welfare of others, national morality under balance of power diplomac y is tota l ly selfseek ing: The world is a jungle and only the st rong a nd cu nni ng survive. The key goal of this worldview is gaining and using power to serve nationalistic goals. Roosevelt strong ly believed America should and would become the dominant nation in the world. To do so, we needed to grow militarily and expand our reach through conquest and diplomacy. A second view came out of the brutality and destruction of World War I. Woodrow Wilson was the son of a Presbyterian pastor and a mother who was the daughter of a pastor. Wilson, being born in the South before the Civil War, saw the effects

nations, like individuals, should talk out their differences rather than become violent. That’s why Wilson advocated the creation of the League of Nations after World War I, a precursor to the United Nations. Wilson’s more exalted views have become the standard of American foreign policy for every American president since, both Democrat and Republican. Unfortunately, this desire to balance power and principle has made America ambivalent in its foreign affairs. We tend to vacillate between Teddy Roosevelt’s balance of power approach and Wilson’s moral diplomacy. It explains the protests of the Vietnam War and the criticism of George W. Bush with his policy of a preemptive strike against Saddam Hussein. It also explains why America was horrified at the use of torture and humiliation at Abu Ghraib. Both Teddy Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson were great presidents. Both their views have prevailed in part, but paradoxically, it was the idealistic Wilson whose worldview dominates America and the world.

of modern warfare close up from a very young age. This experience had a deep effect upon the development of his worldview. Wilson was a Princeton University professor with a Ph.D. in history and political science who eventually became president of Princeton University, then governor of New Jersey and, finally, president of the United States in 1913. Wilson’s foreign policy views deeply reflected his Christian faith. He called his foreign policy stance “moral diplomacy.” In contradiction to Teddy Roosevelt’s perspective and strong denunciations, Wilson’s view was that national foreign affairs and personal morality should be one and the same values (P. 46). “Disdaining the balance of power, he insisted that America’s role was ‘not to prove…our selfishness, but our greatness’” (P. 47). According to Wilson’s view, America should be a beacon – a light on the hill. The United States has an obligation to spread its core beliefs: equality, Christianity and democracy to the world. Wilson’s goal was to keep the peace through “collective security rather than alliances” (P. 30). In other words,

Are you ready for some football?

Friday night opener features renewal of Enumclaw-White River rivalry Senior Writer

If the White River High football team continues its upward spiral under coach Joe Sprouse, good things are in store for the coming season. Two years ago, the Hornets went 1-9 under the first-year coach, who was an all-state linebacker during his time in the maroon and gold. Last season brought a massive turnaround, as the Hornets improved to 6-1 in South Puget Sound League 2A play, shared the league title and earned home-field


to make an impact on both sides of the ball. They should get most of the touches in Sprouse’s runfirst offense. When the ball is in the air, it will be veteran quarterback Zach McMillen doing the honors. The third-year starter has a handful of options at receiver, including Devin Liebel, Austin May, Dustin France and Sean Hayes. McMillen should have time to throw, and ball carriers should find decent holes to run through, as the Hornets have three returning starters on the offensive line. But it’s the defense that should really leave its mark on opponents, Sprouse said. “I expect our defense to play at a really high level,” he said, noting that eight starters return from last year’s defensive crew, which ranked second in the SPSL 2A.

See WHITE RIVER, Page 10


The Enumclaw High Hornets will hit the regular season gridiron Friday, hosting White River at 7 p.m. at the Pete’s Pool field. The team and fans have high hopes for the season. Enumclaw features a new coach, Mark Gunderson, who played cornerback for Pacific Lutheran University. Gunderson wrote in an email the team has “a talented group led by senior Bryson Grant, junior Chandler Streuli and junior Mauricio Portillo (captains). Taking snaps at quarterback will be junior Peter Nordby. The wideout corp will be Perry Rockwood, a senior who also plays defensive

advantage in the opening round of postseason play. The playoff excitement might have ended with a Week 1, 20-13 loss to the Interlake Saints, but a positive football vibe had returned to Buckley. “We’re going to take another step toward success,” Sprouse said after leading eight days of practice. “We lost some seniors, but we have some kids ready to step up and make this a trend.” Although the Hornets lost a large handful of seniors to graduation, Sprouse is pleased with the talent he sees up and down his roster. Players to watch, he said, include Keenan Fagan and Garrett Quiles, two-way players who are expected

Junior Hornets pick up three wins rushing TDs while Ben Pozun, Petey Erickson, Cody Williams and Nate Belcourt also added touchdown runs. Zack Jones threw a 15-yard touchdown pass to Drew Krehbiel as the fifth graders evened their season record to 1-1. The sixth-grade Junior Hornets came out hot, jumping on the Tigers with multiple weapons. Five different players scored touchdowns during a onesided, 33-0 victory. QB Joe Flanigan threw a pair of touchdown passes, one a 70-yarder to Henry Henken and the other a 33-yard score to Brandon Howard. Nick Harberts and Jett VanHoof added rushing

touchdowns to round out the day. The seventh grade team faced a Tigers offense that featured two huge running backs. After falling behind 6-0 in the second quarter, the Junior Hornets responded with a solid drive, capped by a Mason Fend touchdown run and a successful extra point kick for the two-point addon, making it 8-6 Hornets at halftime. Coming out focused in the second half, the Junior Hornets shut down the Tigers offense and Michael Pedreira’s interception sparked two back-toback Junior Hornets touchdowns. Josh Heer blasted his way into the end zone for a 1-yard touchdown

and fullback Ben Holland added a 10-yard TD to close out any chances of a Tiger comeback. For the second week in a row, the eighth-grade Junior Hornets faced a tough opponent. This week it was the Raiders

WHITE RIVER FROM 8 Among those holding opponents in check will be Austin Ross, Mike O’Connor and Chris Skinner. The only dent in the Hornet armor comes in the form of an injury to tight end Scott Anderson, a three-year starter who Sprouse identifies as one of the best in the league. Anderson was hurt during camp

and will likely miss the first game or two. The Hornets open the season in exciting fashion, first renewing a rivalry with neighboring Enumclaw High and then returning – for one night only – to their traditional home at Sheets Field in downtown Buckley. The season opener against EHS comes Friday night and the Sheets Field game is Sept. 7, both beginning at 7 p.m. The Hornets haven’t played at Sheets since fall 2002.

What stands out are the people, especially the true characters. And small towns like those in East Pierce County are usually packed with them. Shoot, sometimes they run for office. Sometimes they even win. But my favorites are always the ones hidden in plain sight and, honestly, it’s often the seniors. I love the senior center because some of the stories you hear about the people there are the best around. Last October I had the opportunity to meet one of those characters and tell her story, highlighting a time and place that seems so foreign now that it may have been another country, not just 60 years ago. The woman, of course, is Joan Rupp and for those to whom her name does not ring any bells, she is the Bonney Lake woman who back in the 1950s was a part of an all-women’s barnstorming basketball team called Dempsey’s Texas Cowgirls. Rupp and her fellow cowgirls traveled around the country in a Mercury station wagon, taking on local mens teams and putting on shows à la the Harlem Globetrotters (with whom the Cowgirls also traveled and played, though the trotters still had to sit in the back of the bus and use different water fountains, something that baffles Joan to this day). Not only did Joan get to see the country, she made it to Europe to play as part of a USO tour. After six years, Joan called it a career though she admits they were the best six years of her life and she wishes she had

played longer. She got a real job and eventually moved to the Pacific Northwest, where she worked at Boeing until she retired. After retirement, the road called again and Joan climbed behind the wheel of an RV and went back out to see even more of the country. After the story was published, a copy made its way to the offices of the Seattle Storm, the WNBA team and this year, for their 30th anniversary celebration of Title IX, the team invited Joan to the Key Arena to watch the game and be part of the halftime celebration of female athletes. Now, Joan’s playing days were well before the passage of Title IX, the 1972 law that required schools to offer sports programs for girls as well as boys. But that makes her story even more impressive, really. She saw the Cowgirls play in her town, drove a state over for tryouts, and then didn’t make the team. But instead of letting it get her down, Joan practiced all year and when tryouts were held again, she made the squad. This year, the American women lead the way at the Olympics - including Sue Bird of the Seattle Storm, whom Joan was especially excited to see play - bringing home more medals (and more gold) than their male counterparts. Thanks to laws like Title IX, young girls all around the country can dream athletic dreams just like their male friends and we are a better, stronger nation for it. But before Title IX even, there was Joan Rupp and hundreds like her, blazing trails and storming barns and not taking no for an answer.

Gallery to display work of Enumclaw artist ing and ever-changing wildlife became emphasized in my mind. Artists that I had never really thought too much of before, such as Edward Hopper and Winslow Homer, were appealing to my sensibilities. “That said, this work is an effort to express that excitement. The towering power lines, the mangled fence, the distant houses, and the cut tree all speak to man’s wrestle with nature. Ideas of age, decay, new life, eventual loss, progression, and many others are brought to mind when we take some moments to view our environment in relation to time and the forces of mankind, nature, and God. My art is an attempt to help us reflect on ancient and lasting truths in a world where we are often too busy to think on such things.” Gallery 2012 is in the council chambers at Enumclaw City Hall, 1339 Griffin Ave. in Enumclaw. Exhibition hours are 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. For more information, call the Enumclaw Cultural Programs office at 360-802-0239.

Paintings by Enumclaw artist Adam Kenney – like the one above – will be on display beginning Sept. 6 at Gallery 2012, found in council chambers of Enumclaw City Hall. Submitted photo.

The gallery installation reimagines residential communities for decades to come. FutureShack participants push the boundaries of how humans – forced to accommodate changes in demographics, the environment and economy – could, over time, radically restructure how they live. The exhibition and accompanying text weave together themes of

The city of Enumclaw’s Gallery 2012 presents the work of Enumclaw artist Adam Kenney. His paintings will be on display Sept. 6 through Oct. 2. “I have spent much of my life among the various locales surrounding Enumclaw, Maple Valley, and Ravensdale,” Kenney wrote in an artist’s statement. After leaving for Seattle Pacific University and being impressed by the big city, Kenney discovered his appreciation for the natural beauty of his home turf. “On the rare occasions when I would journey home, I began to appreciate the scenery much more than I had before,” he wrote. “I was finally able to really appreciate the beauty of the Plateau and the foothills.” Having spent time in the city and the university, Kenney also developed an interest in architecture and the relation of geometric shapes to organic shapes. “I began to appreciate man-made structures in ways that had not occurred to me before,” he wrote. “The contrast that an erected monument had against the flow-

Immunize now

F R A N C I S C A N H E A LT H S y S T E M


Health experts say every parent’s back-to-school list should include making sure children are up-todate with their immunizations, including the Tdap booster vaccine to protect against an ongoing whooping cough epidemic. The state’s current whooping cough epidemic is a stark reminder of the importance of immunization. There have been 560 confirmed cases of whooping cough in King County so far this year, compared to 98 cases in all of 2011. Parents who choose not to immunize their children must submit an exemption certificate, signed by a health care provider verifying the provider has shared information on immunization.

HOSPITAL FROM 4 Avenue in Enumclaw is part of the expansive network. The nonbinding letter of intent is the first step in the partnership process. Leaders of Catholic Health Initiatives and PeaceHealth expect to form the new system before June 30, 2013.

The two organizations will be equal partners. Discussions were prompted by a rapidly changing health care environment that demands the ability to accept more financial risk in caring for defined populations, like Medicaid recipients. The partners will reduce costs by making infrastructure investments

Africa: rich in spirit despite life of poverty There are some events in life that are life-changing. My recent mission trip to Africa was one of those events. The scripture that comes to mind as I process all that I have seen and done comes from Luke 6:38: “Give and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap; for the measure you give will be the measure you get back.” Our group travelled to Kabanana, Zambia, where we spent nearly two weeks working with the people there. Our efforts were concentrated on improving conditions at the Healing Place School. The school has two rooms to house all the children from

preschool through seventh grade. There is no electricity in the school and the children sit on the floor, learning lessons that Cindy Ehlke are written on the Calvary Presbyterian Church blackboard. Many of the children, and sometimes even the teachers, come to school without having eaten a meal. However, many good things have happened at Healing Place School. Within the last year, through the efforts of a nonprofit group, Village Steps, this community has a well. During the time we worked there, an improved outdoor toilet for the school was nearly completed. A foundation for a second school room was started. All of us had

Church Corner

hoped to provide the school with benches for the children to sit on while in school. Because of the generosity of a woman who visited the site and saw the work being done, benches were donated and arrived while we were there. As a measure of gratitude for all that had happened, the teachers and the school children spontaneously broke into song and danced with joy, praising God for all of the good gifts they had received. These people are so grateful for everything they receive. They smile and give hugs. They sing and dance every day. I came away feeling like they had given so much of themselves to us despite poverty. I could not help compare what I take for granted with what they consider blessings. These people may live in poverty, but they are not poor. They are rich in spirit. They

have a faith in God that shows up in their everyday activities. I came away with a renewed sense of the need to be of service to those who have so much less than I do. Poverty is all around us in any neighborhood. One does not have too far to look to find people who are hungry, homeless and without basic resources. The needs are so great, it would be easy to get frozen and not know how to make a dent in the problems. At least that has been my attitude before I made this trip. Now I am aware that changes take place on step at a time, one charitable act at a time. I have been blessed by spending time with these people. The challenge for all of us is to trust in God, asking him to make us people of blessing that overflows to others.




Our family would like to sincerely thank all who were so kind during the loss of our wife, mother and grandmother Shirley Amburgey. The flowers, cards, food, phone calls, visits and donations made in her honor meant so much to us all. She was a great lady who will be missed. Rex Amburgey and family
