One weed at a time: Milfoil attack goes hands-on in Tapps By Brian Beckley


Staff Writer

fter two successful summers of chemical treatment to remove the eurasian milfoil in Lake Tapps, Cascade Water Alliance is taking a more targeted approach this year: pulling out the invasive weed by hand. “We’re hoping from here on out it will just be maintenance,” said Jon Shimada, capital projects director for Cascade. Beginning this past week, divers from AquaTechnex are patrolling the lake’s shores and yanking out what milfoil remains. According to

Aquatic Biolgist Terry McNabb, two years worth of herbicides have made “huge strides” in battling milfoil, which can be dangerous to swimmers in large quantities, as well as the ecosystem of a body of Eurasian milfoil water. “People tend to forget that two years ago there was a bay this size you couldn’t see the water,” McNabb said Wednesday

Sumner’s City Council voted unanimously Aug. 20 to enact a sixmonth moratorium on businesses related to medicinal marijuana. It is the third time Sumner has enacted such a moratorium since July 2011. The moratorium was passed again due to a continued ambiguity regarding which marijuana distribution methods are allowed under state law, City Attorney Brett Vinson said. “This matter has come before the council on several different occasions,” he said. “So whenever the moratorium was put in place, it’s been allowed to lapse in hopes of clarification from the state. “When the issue has gone to the legislature, occasionally it’s come back a little more muddled.” An initiative allowing the use and possession of medical marijuana by patients of certain conditions was originally passed in 1998. The law did not extend amnesty against possession charges, but rather allowed an affirmative defense to patients who received a note from an approved health care provider and registered with the Department of Health. The law allows for designated providers of medical marijuana, essentially patients who also provide the plant to another patient and are thus allowed to have double the approved amount of plants and/or harvested cannabis. But the law says nothing about the distribution or sale of medical marijuana; effectively, approved patients may have marijuana, but the means of obtaining it remain illegal. The state legislature has revised the law several times, most recently

Eagle scout projects put warning labels on drains By Brian Beckley Staff Writer

The drains of several Bonney Lake neighborhoods got new warnings against dumping this summer, thanks to projects from a pair of local Eagle Scout candidates. Logen Bergerud and Cameron Gehrke spent parts of their summer labeling storm drains to warn residents not to dump into them because they drain into streams and other fish habitats. “There has been a problem in some neighborhoods with people dumping things they shouldn’t be dumping down

the storm drain,” Bergerud, 15, said. Bergerud said he hopes the labels he and his crew placed on 198 drains in the Brookfield and Spiraea Glen developments will cause people to “stop and think” about where the drains ultimately end up before they dump into them. Gehrke, 17, and his crew labeled drains in the Springhaven, Ptarmingan Ridge, and GMG neighborhoods. “We are trying to keep our waters clean not only for the habitat, but also the recreational activity that we all enjoy,” Gehrke said in an email.

Courtesy photos. Both teens are longtime members of the Boy Scouts, now closing in on the organization’s highest honor. “Eagle scout has been a goal of mine,” Bergerud said, adding that he first joined the Cub Scouts at age 8. Bergerud said it “feels awesome” to be this close to meeting his goal, which now requires only a board review. Gehrke also spoke highly of his time in the Boy Scouts. “I have been a Scout since I was 12 years

old. Our troop is very active with great leaders. I have had the opportunity to hike in the Olympic Mountains, kayak in the San Juan Islands, make snow caves on Mt. Rainier, and go to all the forts that make up the Triangle of Death to learn orienteering,” he said in an email. “All of this fun has been an awesome adventure.” To comment on this story view it online at Reach Brian Beckley at or 360-825-2555, ext. 5058

Dental patients have many reasons to prevent periodontal (gum) disease before it exerts far-ranging adverse effects. Aside from the more immediate potential consequences of gum disease, which include inflammation and possible tooth loss, research links gum disease with heart disease, diabetes, lung problems, and premature and low-weight babies. Fortunately, early stages of gum disease can be reversed with professional cleanings and at-home brushing and flossing. In more severe cases that involve buildups of hardened tartar, professional “scaling” and “root planing” may remove unwanted deposits above and below the gumline. Researchers now show that even second hand smoke increases the likelihood of developing severe gum disease by 30% to 60%. P.S. Both smokers and nonsmokers who are exposed to secondhand smoke may come in contact with toxins in the smoke that increase inflammation and oxidative stress. You can rely on us to answer all your questions about dental treatments and procedures.

in 2011, but sections that detailed allowable methods of distribution and sale were line item vetoed by Governor Christine Gregoire. Gregoire cited the legal liability of enacting such laws in light of the federal government’s continued stance of prohibition. Marijuana remains a Schedule 1 banned drug under federal law. Without state guidance, cities like Sumner, Bonney Lake and Buckley have maintained a holding pattern of temporary moratoriums to avoid the legal questions raised by a collective garden or dispensary within city limits.

Vinson did note that, on a long enough timeline, continued moratoriums could present their own legal liability if a court ruled that they constituted a de facto ban in conflict with state law. “Seattle found itself in a similar situation with its continued moratorium on adult businesses such as strip clubs,” he said. “The city had a moratorium in place for 10 years until a court ruled they couldn’t do that because it was more restrictive than what state law allowed. However, Vinson noted that 10 years was significantly longer than the total amount of time Sumner had instituted its nonconsecutive moratoriums. The city was therefore at a lower

Milfoil FROM 1 from the company’s boat, located in a cove near then north end of the lake. This year, the weed is still present in the lake, but at a greatly reduced number. Coves and bays treated with the herbicide over the past two summers are still mostly clear and even the untreated areas have nowhere near the level of infestation as parts of the lake did just last summer. Eurasian milfoil is a non-native species that can reproduce itself from a small cutting, which means that every piece of milfoil is potentially another plant if any is left in the water or even stuck to the bottom of a boat loaded into the lake. “The more times it’s cut, the more plants you can have,” said Lake Manager Joe Mickelson, adding, “It’ll last on a trailer in 90 degrees for four weeks.” This year, because of the success of the previous two chemical treatments, which

level of risk to re-up the moratorium. Councilman Randy Hynek voted to pass the moratorium, but used his council comments to advocate for cancer patients’ use of medical cannabis and hash oil. “Any Sumner citizens with cancer, who have a doctor’s approval, I would advise them to travel to Seattle or Tacoma or another one of the cities that have dispensaries for medical marijuana,” Hynek said.

The cost this year is closer to $30,000. To identify locations that need attention, Cascade is also asking residents to look at their own shores and let the company know of any milfoil beds. There is also some confusion among non-biologists as to which are native plants, and which are the invasive strain of milfoil, which often blends itself in with native plant beds.

A ‘peasant press’ revolution For me, watching the growth and progress of the citizen journalist phenomenon has been a mixture of optimism and healthy reservation. A historian and author whose blog I follow has remarked repeatedly how the Internet has affected access to information and publishing greater than any other invention in history, including the Gutenberg press. Practically anyone with access to the Internet can creT.J. Martinell ate their own Guest Writer blog for free and write about whatever they wish to, with access to an audience unheard of in any other prior time. Among such creations is the emergence of the citizen journalist — people who have no background in journalism or direct ties to a media outlet or organization who report on what is going on around them on Facebook, blogs, websites and YouTube. While many elitists in the media scoff at the uneducated “peasant press” who comprise these type of journalists and reporters, I personally see it as an added protection against encroachments on civil liberties.

Dealing with bullies at a global level Bullying seems to be an all too common human trait. It’s where a stronger person, seeing someone perceived to be in some way weaker, will impose his will upon that person or group in order to humiliate and at the same time, exalt the bully and make him feel superior. Bullying occurs at all levels, even on the international level. Bullying is seen as the cause of World War II. England and France, especially, did not want to risk another world war, so rather than confronting Hitler and Mussolini, they stood passively by and let them take what they wanted. The Allies used threats, rather than actions, in an attempt to stop them. This is always futile. The term for this approach became known as appeasement. Hitler took over the Sudetenland of Czechoslovakia, and then all of Czechoslovakia, then Austria, and finally half of Poland. At this point the Allies said, “Enough!” and declared war on Germany. Bullying and appeasement started World War II, but in typical human fashion, we humans – this time, we Americans – overreacted to appeasement with what has been called the

Politics in Focus Rich Elfers Columnist

Domino Theory during the Cold War (1946 to 1991). During this era the U.S., with its democracy and capitalism, was pitted against the Soviet Union’s socialistic dictatorship. If you have ever set up dominos in a long file and then knocked one over, you will see all the adjacent dominoes fall over in turn. This word picture describes the fear of communism spreading throughout the world after World War II. If one country fell to communism in the world, then neighboring countries in turn would also fall. The Domino Theory is an overreaction to the thinking that brought on World War II – appeasement. Overreaction, however, did not occur at first. President Harry Truman was confronted in 1948 with the Soviet Union cutting off the roads and trains into the free half of Berlin 100 miles

inside communist East Germany. During this incident, known as the Berlin Blockade, Truman did not overreact and start World War III by using the army to force its way into West Berlin, nor did he take advantage of our monopoly on nuclear weapons. He also did not appease and let the city fall to Stalin’s bullying. Instead, Truman decided on a middle course, by supplying the city with food and fuel through the air in what has been dubbed the Berlin Airlift. Truman’s middle-ground approach forced Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin, instead of the Americans, to decide whether to fire the first shot of World War III. He chose not to. After 11 months of Allied planes landing every 60 seconds 24/7 in Berlin, Stalin blinked and ended the blockade. The overreaction to appeasement came after the Soviets had developed both the A-bomb and the H-bomb in 1949 and 1953, respectively, and after North Korea had invaded South Korea in June 1950, initiating a bloody conflict. When President Eisenhower became president in 1953, he took a more reactive stance toward the

Corner FROM 6 Before, a government could control practically all of its citizens’ access to information through the press. Now, it is virtually impossible to do so. This type of journalism also allows subjects or issues to be covered that regular journalists either can’t cover due to limited resources or when they simply don’t hear about it. At the same time, however, since most citizen journalists have no formal education in journalism, they often have trouble differentiating between blogging and reporting. They also don’t have a firm grasp of journalism ethics or their state laws, which gets them into trouble when they interview or quote people. Several weeks ago, I read a story about an activist journalist in New Hampshire who was charged with three felony counts of wiretapping. After videotaping a possible incident of excessive use force by a school liaison officer at a high school, he called up both the police department and the school for comment on it. During the interviews, he videotaped himself, which included

Wednesday, September 5, 2012 • The BONNEY LAKE & sumner Courier-Herald • Page 7 audio recording. The problem is, New Hampshire, like Washington, has a two party consent law, which requires both parties in a telephone conversation to consent to a recording. After the journalist posted the videos on YouTube with the interviews, he was later charged for wiretapping. Had he simply written down their statements and typed them up, he would have been fine. In the interest of helping citizen journalists out there get started, here are a few recommendations before you proceed. 1. Protect yourself legally A mainstream reporter has no more rights than any ordinary person when it comes to what they write or publish. The difference, however, is that a reporter’s education, and editors, tells them what they can or cannot say. The First Amendment gives you freedom of speech and press, but that does not give you the ability to infringe on another person’s rights by writing whatever you want about them. You are entitled to your own opinion, but not to your own facts. For example, a blogger

in Oregon, while writing about a land use issue, accused an attorney of committing tax fraud. The attorney sued and won. The fact that she posted it online didn’t help. You may be posting it online, but legally it’s the same as though you published it in a newspaper. Before you write a single sentence, study journalism ethics thoroughly. Know the difference between libel as well defamation of character (slander, too, if you plan to video tape yourself then post it to YouTube) and how you can avoid it. Study Supreme Court cases like New York Times v. Sullivan that pertain to public officials as opposed to “limited purpose public figures.” For example, you have a wider latitude to criticize public officials or figures than private citizens. When writing stories involving a possible crime, everything is “according to” or “allegedly” unless it has been proven in a court of law. Read up on your state’s laws on telephone recording or, if you’re a video/ photo journalist, know that in three states it is now illegal to record any on-duty police officer. Save all your notes from

interviews. Document everything. If in doubt about an issue, you can also check out the Poynter Institute’s website where the staff occasionally post answers to questions journalists have. Traditional media organizations and groups like the Reporters Committee and Society of Professional Journalists can also be of help. 2. If you plan to report by writing about a topic, practice before you do it for real. Journalism writing is not blogging. It has its own style thanks to the Associated Press and, depending on the story, a different lead. You don’t necessarily have to follow AP style, but if you aren’t a natural writer, practice before you actual begin reporting. Analyze newspaper stories, not so much in terms of the content but in how the story itself is written. Understand how to write a story inverted pyramid or with a nut graf. Much of my own skills as a reporter developed from years of reading the newspaper in the morning as a kid. By the time I got to high school I knew how to mimic the style without

much assistance or explanation. It can take a while to get used to, so practice by writing stories that you don’t intend to publish, or role play interviews with friends and family on the phone or in person in order to enhance your note-taking ability. Also, before you publish anything, have someone else read it. It’s amazing what mistakes or corrections a person can spot with fresh eyes. 3. Check, double check and triple check for accuracy There’s an old saying in journalism: If your mother says she loves you, check it out. Do the same with any facts you put in your stories. Confirm any factual assertions with original sources. Don’t accept something posted in another story unless it can be verified through another source. If in doubt about a quote you want to use, call up the person to verify you quoted them or summarized their remarks accurately. The mark of a good reporter is one who rarely has to correct an error. If you don’t understand an issue, particularly a controversial one, contact experts who aren’t necessarily involved

in the particular case who can offer unbiased explanations. If you’re still in doubt, don’t post. 4. Be as professional as possible Because of the perception people have of bloggers, they aren’t as concerned about their conduct or what they write since it is inferred to be the writer’s opinion. But if you claim to be a reporter, activist or not, you will be expected to adhere to the same ethics as anyone thought of as a traditional reporter. The reason why is because a blogger states an opinion, whereas a reporter claims authority as news or a source of information. There is nothing wrong with expressing your opinion in a story based around facts you have gathered or through interviews conducted. That’s what columnists do. But throwing in inflammatory rhetoric and/or unnecessary attacks is lazy and demonstrates a lack of restraint on the part of the writer.

of Pattison’s Team Extreme out of Federal Way. Her regimen includes indoor inline, outdoor inline and ice skating. Corinne zoomed ahead of hundreds of girls in her age group to qualify for her six events. She earned her gold medals in the 500-meter sprint on a road course, the 300-meter time trial on a track course, and the 2000-meter points race on a track course. Her silvers were in the 500 sprint on a track course, and the 200meter time trial on the road. Her Bronze was in the 2000 Points race on the road. “She’s hopefully going to compete on ice this year,” father Paul Stoddard said. “She’ll have short and long track competitions in January and February.”

spread of communism that he named the Domino Theory. As a result of this overreaction to appeasement, the U.S. government toppled democracies in Iran in 1953, in Guatemala in 1954 and in the Congo in 1960, to name three. In other words, the United States, out of fear, bullied weaker democratic nations to keep the dominoes from falling to the communists. Because of the Domino Theory we became embroiled in the Vietnam War at great cost to our soldiers, to the Vietnamese and to our trust in our government. Two presidents, Lyndon Johnson, who was forced to drop out of the race for another term, and Richard Nixon, who was forced to resign because of anger over the war and the Watergate scandal, were affected by the Domino Theory gone awry. Ironically, it was Nixon who came to understand that the Domino Theory

was too black and white and rigid. Instead of the United States facing communism in Vietnam, we were actually facing a nationalist movement where the North Vietnamese saw the U.S. as just one more bully – an imperialist power like the Chinese, the Japanese and the French before us. Nixon understood that communism was not a united blob, but it was made up of nations who deeply distrusted each other. He used these divisions to force the North Vietnamese to negotiate a treaty, playing the Russians against the Chinese who put pressure on their ally, North Vietnam, in order to gain U.S. support. Bullying is a major human problem. It can take place at all times in our lives at all levels, from personal to international. The lesson we can learn is how to deal with bullying like Truman did – in a balanced, measured and creative way. It means we must act maturely and rationally. We must learn to deal with our emotions and let our intellects rule over them.

East Pierce offers new ‘hands-only’ CPR class East Pierce Fire and Rescue is offering a new, one-hour CPR class for people who don’t require a certification card. This free course will be presented once a month at the fire station headquarters, at 18421 Veterans Memorial Drive East, in Bonney Lake, beginning Sept. 19. “The class focuses on essential lifesaving skills, including ‘hands-only’ CPR for adult victims and recognition of the signs and symptoms of heart attack and strokes,” said East Pierce EMS Chief Russ McCallion. “Hands-only” CPR is recognized by the American Heart Association as a viable way to help someone, when a citizen can’t or

Wednesday, September 5, 2012 • The BONNEY LAKE & sumner Courier-Herald • Page 9 doesn’t want to provide “mouth to mouth” ventilations for a CPR victim. Studies now show that for adult patients who collapse into cardiac arrest from a heart attack, performing continuous chest compressions, with no ventilations, provides a survival benefit equal to that of traditional CPR. “Bystander CPR doubles the chance that a patient will survive cardiac arrest,” McCallion said. “We hope that this class will meet the needs of many people who have busy schedules, don’t need a certification for work, but just want to know how they can help save someone’s life.” East Pierce Fire provides CPR training and certification to more than 2,000 people annually, including 1,500 8th and 10th grade students, throughout the district. “This effort has resulted in a 70%

bystander CPR rate for witnessed collapses—one of the highest rates reported in the U.S.,” McCallion said. “That means that seven out of every ten heart attack victims who collapse in public in the East Pierce jurisdiction receive CPR from a bystander.” He notes that CPR does not “bring someone back,” but rather buys time by circulating oxygenated blood to the brain until the heart can be defibrillated, or “shocked” into to a normal rhythm that can sustain life. The department hopes to generate increased interest in placing automated external defibrillators (AEDs) in businesses, churches and anywhere else people

gather. East Pierce already supports teachers and police officers in the district with training and medical direction for AED programs. The new “hands-only” CPR classes are scheduled from 7 to 8 p.m. on Sept. 19, Oct. 11, Nov. 13 and Dec. 11. Groups of 10 or more, such as homeowners associations, church groups, or business, can schedule to have the firefighters come to them with this valuable training.

Record-setters return to the pool By Daniel Nash Staff Writer

By the time the waters had calmed last November, the Sumner girls swim and dive team’s remained afloat with a third place trophy and two school records. It was the second year in a row the team had taken third place at the King County Aquatic Center, and the third year in a row the team had taken a top 10 spot. Coach Dana Powers has always been a cheerleader of the strong swimmers on her team, and the return of some of her strongest has given her no reason to hesitate. Madison Munger, the wunderkind athlete who achieved “Iron

Man” status her freshman year and had a hand in two school records her sophomore year, will return as junior team captain. She won the 200-yard freestyle race last postseason, and was part of the two-time state champion 200 Freestyle Relay team. “She is healthy and expected to ironman (again) this season,” Powers said. The Iron Man is an honor reserved for varsity swimmers who qualify for state in every individual event in one season. Ashley Huynh, another recodsetter, is returning for her fourth season. She will fulfill the role of team captain. “She looks very strong and will be competing in the 200 (individual medley) and 100 breast-

Sumner Girls Soccer Daniel Nash

After a threepeat of trips to the state tournament in 2009, 2010 and 2011, Sumner’s girls soccer team has acquired a taste for high-level play and is hungry to return to the state pitch and possibly ascend beyond the Elite Eight. Head Coach Robi Turley is joined by former Spartan Kaylee Holloway in leading the 2012 season’s team. Returning varsity athletes are Kaylie Rozell, Jamie Lange, Sarah Carter, Brooke Lancaster, Alyssa Murray and Nichole Delaney. Newcomers are Kinsey Saiz and Dacia Alexander. The Spartans will play a non-league game against the Bonney Lake Panthers Sept. 6 at 7 p.m.

stroke,” Powers said. Kallan Gustafson, another fouryear veteran, was cited as integral to the team’s relay competitions in the upcoming year, as well as efforts to return to a Top Five spot in state. She’s expected to final in the 200 and 500 freestyle races this year, Powers said. Alicia Ditty, the third returning member of last year’s record relay team, is expected to “crush” her 100 backstroke time. “Last year, Alicia turned out her best times to return to finals in the 100 backstroke,” Powers said. “She was also part of our 200 medley relay, as well as the 400 free relay.” Further returning swimmers Powers said to watch were seniors Makenna Roberts and Ashleigh Johnson, and junior Kristen Easterly. Newcomers to watch are Illiana Kaiser, Petria Russell, and Brittany Tuffs. The Spartans will swim against Eatonville on the Cruisers’ home turf Sept. 13.

A coach’s market of athletes Daniel Nash

High school athletics departments commonly run through cycles of popularity from sport to sport, and now the Sumner cross country team’s turn is up. The Spartans have the largest roster the program has seen. “We have a pretty strong boys team this year, with a big group that will be fighting all season for varsity spots,” Coach Kristen Chapman said.

“We only lost one varsity girl, and we have a couple... new runners who look strong enough to fill a varsity spot.” On the boys team, state runner Coltin Tanner is back for his senior year. Junior Arturo Perez returns for his junior year. The girls team, which qualified in full for state last season, will see the return of seniors Natasha Wilson, Robi Long, Allie Sims and Katie Wire; and

SHS Cross Country juniors Amanda Riley, Abi Hensler, and Rachel Nichols. “Our big team goal this season is to get both full teams qualified for state,” Chapman said. “Looking at the new, and returning talent we have, there’s a pretty good chance that will happen.” The team’s first league meet is Sept. 20 in Celebration Park.

SHS Volleyball

Back to playoffs? Daniel Nash Staff Writer

Sumner’s girls volleyball team took on all comers to make it to the 2011 district tournament. They were no strangers to the playoffs, this having been the team’s fifteenth trip to the penultimate postseason tournament. But a match-up against Fife High resulted in a three-set trouncing that stopped them in their tracks. But, as a new season commences, the team philosophy is one step at a time. Coach Mike Fitzpatrick’s stated hope is for a return to the playoffs. The team’s returning starters are outside hitter Karissa Smith, setter Brittany Smith, middle hitter Haylie Steinman, outside hitter outside hitter Kaetlynn Brown and libero Hannah Fitzpatrick. “Players that will play an important role during the season will be (defensive specialist) Kendall Jamison, (middle hitter) Cassidy Sargent, (right side) Taylor Comerford and (defense specialist) Lindsey Colwell,” Fitzpatrick said. The Spartans will take on the Bonney Lake High Panthers Sept. 5.

Seniors deal with changing Medicare plans Finding the Medicare coverage that best fits their needs and their pocketbooks is challenging for many seniors. Health care plans make changes to their coverage. People’s health conditions change. Not keeping on top of these changes can mean problems. Suddenly seniors may find they don’t have needed coverage, their doctor no longer takes their plan, or they face steep medical or prescription drug costs. That’s why it’s essential to review Medicare coverage and individual needs each year, and to use the Medicare annual open enrollment period to make changes to coverage. Medicare annual open enrollment runs from Oct. 15 through Dec. 7, with new benefit choices effective the following Jan. 1. Getting started early is key, says Mary Dale Walters, senior vice president of the Allsup Medicare Advisor, a Medicare plan selection service. Choosing Medicare coverage is complicated, even when you have lots of information on the Web. It can be difficult to get current plan information and to get an apples-toapples comparison of plans. Walters offers these tips for seniors to manage and lower their health care costs. 1. Be an informed consumer. Millions of seniors, their families and caregivers will be pleased to know that for the third straight year the average basic Medicare prescription drug premiums will remain steady. Since enacted, the Affordable Care Act has helped more than 5.4 million people with Medicare save more than $4.1 billion in out-of-pocket prescription drug expenses. These are significant results as the law closes the Medicare Part D doughnut hole coverage gap,

Boomers face healthcare woes By Timi Gustafson

Seniors must keep up with Medicare changes to assure they are getting coverage that best fits their needs and their budget. according to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Seniors can capitalize on those savings by knowing exactly what they are paying for; shop around for better prescription prices and ask about costs. For additional savings, use generic medications. Take advantage of Medicare preventive services, including many types of screenings, tests, shots, counseling, training and supplies now offered without co-pays or other out-of-pocket costs. 2. Ask for help. In addition to guidance on retirement, estate and long-term care planning, seniors can rely on professionals to help them with health care choices. Walters points out this can include Medicare specialists like Allsup or financial planners who often consult Medicare experts. Health care planning is a quality of life and a financial issue, Walters says. If you need assistance sorting through the overwhelming number of options, it’s important to know that help is out there for you; don’t be afraid to ask. 3. Be proactive. Just as seniors review their finances or taxes each year, Medicare annual enrollment is the ideal time to review health care coverage, Walters says. It is OK to admit it’s confusing and that help will be valuable. Look at all your Medicare options and take charge of your health care. In addition to annual Medicare enrollment, special enrollment periods happen throughout the year for specific situations.

Baby Boomers will likely face an array of health conditions as they grow older but will find in many cases only insufficient treatment options. According to a report by the Institute of Medicine, health care providers are currently not prepared for the coming challenges of what has been called a “silver tsunami” because of the sheer size of this aging generation. These challenges include both physical and mental health care needs, the latter of which have so far been mostly ignored or neglected. As many as 8 million Americans age 65 and older suffer from mental Timi Gustafson health problems, including depression, memory loss and diminished cognitive functions. Substance abuse was also mentioned as a growing contributing factor to age-related mental decline. These numbers will only go up as the elderly population will grow from a little more than 40 million in 2010 to more than 70 million by 2030. At a time when there is already great concern over the affordability of health care in general, finding funds for the treatment of mental illness and substance abuse will be even more difficult. Nevertheless, the IOM calls for an overhaul of Medicare and Medicaid payment rules in favor of covering care, counseling and other services for older patients with mental health problems. At this point, both programs rather deter treatment of such conditions, based on

“Spinal stenosis,” narrowing of the spinal canal, is a problem that typically affects people aged 50 years or older and that can develop due to a congenital tendency. In most cases, however, the cause is osteoarthritis. Whether by excessive use, previous injury, or aging, cartilage covering joint surfaces in the back slowly deteriorates. Discs between vertebrae become worn, and spaces between bones narrow. Bony outgrowths called “spurs” may also develop. As these changes occur, bones and soft tissues fold inward into the spinal canal to compress nerves. As the spinal canal narrows, pressure on these nerves causes pain to radiate from the lower back down the buttock to the lower leg. Chiropractic treatment is a firstline defense against this pain. P.S. Pain associated with spinal stenosis typically starts slowly and then increases as the space narrows further. Dr. Aaron Smith would like to welcome you to Paradigm Chiropractic (formerly Sunset Chiropractic), 22015 Hwy 410 E., Bonney Lake.

It’s wise to get on list By Derek Gillette 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 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 to the priority boarders. Most communities 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 for the crisis moments. We see this happen with fall quite frequently. In very basic terms then, a waiting list is a good idea simply to be better prepared. A waiting list forces you to go out, before the crisis moment and educate yourself to what senior living options exist in your area, and trust me, communities are not all created equal. 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. Derek Gillette is the community outreach director for Fountain Court Senior Living in Maple Valley. Contact him at dgillette@

GUSTAFSON FROM 11 their existing coverage and reimbursement policies. A lack of national attention to these issues combined with an ill-equipped health care work force that doesn’t understand the special needs of older adults only worsens the situation, according to Dr. Dan G. Blazer, a professor for psychiatry and behavioral science at Duke University Medical Center in Durham, N.C., who chaired the IOM panel that wrote the report. He calls the findings a “wake-up call that we need to prepare now or our older population and their extended families will suffer the con-

sequences.” Geriatric health care is in many ways different from general health care and requires specialized training. Older people undergo metabolic changes, making it more difficult for them to tolerate certain medications and thereby increasing the risk of overdosing. Also, age-related cognitive impairments can affect the ability to comply with medication instructions. Other existing physical health problems can mask or distract from mental health needs and leave those undiagnosed and untreated. Grief and depression caused by loss of loves ones, social isolation or alcohol and drug abuse can

accelerate the mental decline. All health care workers – including primary care physicians, nurses and social workers – who are in frequent contact with older patients must be able to recognize the symptoms of mental health problems and provide at least some basic form of treatment, says the report. Regrettably, there are relatively few opportunities for medical professionals to get more training in geriatric mental health care. There are also not enough financial incentives that would encourage them to enter this field. The report concludes with a warning to lawmakers about the significant shortcomings of the nation’s health care force

facing a rapidly aging population. The IOM panel urges Congress to provide additional funding of resources to evaluate, coordinate and facilitate the efforts of health care workers taking on these enormous challenges.

tion. The man was transferred into the custody of another police agency on the warrant, and was given a court date for driving on a suspended license, failing to install an ignition interlock device, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
