Buckley councilman pleads guilty to child rape

A beautiful day to Beautify

Healthy steps lead to a marathon | Heath and Fitness, 9

By Kevin Hanson Senior Writer

Buckley’s Randy Reed now awaits sentencing, having offered a guilty plea last week to charges of firstdegree rape of a child and indecent liberties. Reed, 55, offered the guilty plea Thursday, one day after resigning from his post on the Buckley City Council. He served on the council for the better part of two decades and had recently returned to council and committee meetings; he had been granted a leave of absence after being charged in Pierce County Superior Court. Reed is to be sentenced Oct. 26 as a first-time offender. Prosecutors are recommending a sentence ranging from 10 years, 11 months to life in prison, with all but 12 months suspended. If a judge goes along with the recommendation, Reed would serve his year behind bars in the Pierce County jail, then be at the mercy of the state’s

Bonney Lake may add fee to pay for Eastown sewers By Brian Beckley Staff Writer

Though they voted down the Utility Latecomers Agreement with the Eastown landowners, the Bonney Lake City Council is still pursuing new avenues to get sewer lines in the ground to try and spur development. The city is researching a new funding method that would involve

adding additional fees to developers in Eastown on top of the sewer system development charges in an attempt to recoup the investment of paying for the pipes. “What we’re looking at … is imposing a surcharge to accomplish the same thing (as the ULA),” City Administrator Don Morrison said. The issue was discussed recently at the council and in the finance

committee and Morrison said the method appears legal, but there is no precedent in Bonney Lake on how to implement such as There are still some questions, however, as to how the additional charges would work because SDCs are based on equivalency dwelling units and not land size, as the agreement with the landowner corporation was. Under the ULA, the city would

have partnered with the landowner corporation to fund the project and was designed so the city and the investors would recoup their money as developers connected to the system. Morrison said the new method would be similar, without the ini-

A Regional Approach Produces Efficiencies, Competitive Edge Message from the Chair | John Marchione, Mayor, City of Redmond I’m pleased to announce that Cascade has progressed from its original status as a watershed management partnership, to a municipal corporation. This important step provides Cascade with flexibility to address future challenges as we continue to strive to provide water resources to the region for the future. the change in status was made possible through the recently adopted joint municipal utilities services authority act (JmUsa) that allows more efficient use of public dollars when municipalities and special districts combine to provide essential public services. Legislators saw the benefit and the act gained broad support. JmUsa was adopted in 2011. in July, Cascade became the first municipal corporation in the state to be formed under JmUsa. Our customers, residents and ratepayers will all benefit as a result. A Competitive Edge for Puget Sound | according to a pronouncement made earlier this summer by Cascade and all the major water providers in King, pierce and snohomish counties, the puget sound

region will have enough water for the next 50 years. Better forecasting, wise infrastructure investment by the utilities, and smart use of water by consumers and the utilities means water will be available. this is not only important for us as we turn on the tap at home but it offers the region a tremendous economic advantage as we look out to the future. Unlike in other parts of the country, we can tell business that the region will have enough water to support population and economic growth. We are well positioned here in this region when it comes to the essential necessity of water.

our members have combined to form Cascade to ensure they have high quality great tasting water today and tomorrow. From local fairs to farmers’ markets and other events, thousands of Cascade area residents stopped by to visit our booths, getting information about Cascade and our water saving ideas. enjoy these last days of summer and the coming of fall—and use our wonderful water wisely!

By law, Cascade needed to address the infestation and has spent the past two summers using chemical treatments in milfoil prone areas. a third treatment was scheduled for this summer but the reduction in numbers of returning plants was so dramatic, contractor aquatechnex suggested hand-pulling the remaining plants this year.

July thunderstorm leads to new gym at North Tapps By Brian Beckley

over the weekend – so work began immediately on drying the building, though the floor would still have to be replaced. “It looked awful that day,” NeumeierMartinson said. Insurance paid for the workers to cut out the warped section of floor and replace it with new wood and then sand down the whole gym and re-finish he floor. All of the work was completed before schools opened and students returned to find a brand new gym. “A bad situation ended up being resolved well,” Neumeier-Martinson said. She said the floor was original installed when the building was built in 1993 and was scheduled to be resurfaced within a few years, though seeing the new finish reminded her how old the original floor was. “We though it looked pretty good until we saw the new one,” she said.

The plan this summer was just to replace the roof and the bleachers at North Tapps Middle School, but Mother Nature had other ideas. “It was a dark and stormy morning,” Dieringer Superintendent Judy NeumeierMartinson said with a laugh. Work was underway to replace the school’s aging roof on July 20 when a thunderstorm suddenly rolled through the Lake Tapps area, drenching the workers and the sending rain into the gym. “The water just came running in the building,” Neumeier-Martinson said. By the time it was over, the gym floor was flooded and beginning to warp. “Hard wood and water do not mix at all,” Neumeier-Martinson said. Along with the floor, the ceilings, wall coverings and five classrooms were damaged to the tune of approximately $600,000. Luckily, the rains came on a Friday when people were in the building – instead of

Bonney Lake extends moratorium on medical marijuana gardens By Brian Beckley Staff Writer

The Bonney Lake City Council on Sept. 11 extended the city’s moratorium on medical marijuana collective gardens for an additional six months. This is the third time the council has approved a six-month moratorium. The council re-affirmed its prior findings of fact on the matter, which include that the governor used a line-item veto on the voter-approved initiative that approved collective

gardens, including on sections pertaining to legal dispensaries, while leaving in tact sections on collective gardens, thereby creating confusion between the state and federal laws. “It appears to the council that establishment of collective gardens would violate federal law,” the original ordinance reads. The council this week again cited the confusing of the conflicting state and federal laws. “Significant uncertainty continues to exist regarding the validity of Washington’s current medical marijuana statutes, including those

pertaining to collective gardens,” reads the ordinance adopted this week. Members of the council asked the city attorney for clarification as to the number or moratoriums they could impose, but according to attorney Kathleen Haggard there is no hard and fast limit on a number of moratoriums, the council simply needs a reason and the apparent conflict between state and federal laws satisfies that. The council held a public hearing on the matter Aug. 28, but no one spoke on the issue.

Councilman Tom Watson, who voted against the original ULA due to the size of the investment and concerns that Eastown would not develop within the 20-year time frame of the agreement that would allow the city to recoup its money, said he is “It’s a different way in favor of the new plan. to accomplish the “I think it’s a lot better that way,” he said of the same thing without a additional charges. partner.” Watson has also said he Don Morrison, would support a smaller sysCity Administrator tem - a $2million backbone instead of the full $4 million design - paid for entirely by the city. Deputy Mayor Dan Swatman, who supported the ULA, said he is concerned about the how the additional charge would work. “It’s very difficult to use,” he said. Swatman said he still supports a ULA because he feels partnership with the landowners is “best chance” to recoup the money and it would be the “fairest way to distribute charges.” “That directly puts the charges on the property owners that benefit in a proportional way,” he said. Swatman said he heard from members of the corporation that they would be interested in supporting the smaller backbone at the 5 percent rate city code allows. “Everybody’s looking for a solution, we just haven’t gotten there yet,” he said.

Annual East Pierce open house set for Sept. 29 East Pierce Fire and Rescue will host its 19th annual open house from 1 to 4 p.m. Sept. 29 at the East Pierce headquarters station at 18421 Veterans Memorial Drive East (formerly Old Buckley Highway) in Bonney Lake. The free health and safe-

ty fair will include more than a dozen booths featuring representatives from East Pierce Fire and Rescue, Department of Natural Resources, the Bonney Lake Police and Pierce County Sheriff’s Department, the City of Bonney Lake and others.

The annual open house is an opportunity to showcase programs and services provided by East Pierce Fire and Rescue, including demonstrations by the fire department’s special operations teams, including the Technical Rescue, Wildland, HazMat and

Water Rescue teams. Parents and children can test their fire safety knowledge, watch demonstrations of various rescue equipment and purchase and be fitted for life jackets and helmets. Live presentations are scheduled throughout the event featuring the Northwest Disaster search dogs and firefighters demonstrating life-saving tools such as the “Jaws of Life”. “The highlight every year for most kids is the chance to play firefighter,” said East Pierce Lieutenant Eric McLeroy. Younger chil-

dren suit up in firefighter gear to put out a “fire” and perform a “rescue.” Older children are offered a more challenging course, shooting water from a hose at a target and performing a “rescue.” This year, State Farm Insurance will bring the Distracted Driving Simulator, an effective tool in demonstrating the consequences of distracted driving. The simulator technology uses software that offers complex and unpredictable challenges to the driver in order to

City asks know what businesses residents want to see in town Staff Writer

The city of Bonney Lake is asking residents to complete a new survey regarding what types of businesses they would like to see move in to town. According to Mayor Neil Johnson, the announcement this past week that the city’s Albertson’s is one of 60 stores nationwide scheduled for closure, along with recent discussions with other national chains that have shown interest in the region, prompted the administration to ask residents for their thoughts on the city’s business community. “Since we have some property that is still available for commercial development, we can use this information to

make contact with the various business interests and see if Bonney Lake is on their radar or (ask) what do we need to do to help bring other business to the area?” he said in an email. “At worst, we may get some additional information from these businesses that may help us modify our incentive packages.” The one-question survey provides a list of potential businesses for residents to choose and also a space for suggestions not included on the list.

Quotes, sources, and off the record The last two weeks provided two glaring examples of bad journalism ethics gone wild. I often write about this topic because it’s important for journalists to point out tactics and practices employed by other news sources that do not reflect theirs values nor the standards of the profession. Just as journalists hold public officials accountable, they need to also hold each other accountable — the watchmen watching other watchmen. TJ Martinell The first examGuest Writer ple was an article published on the cover of the New York Times several weeks ago, which discussed the practice by reporters of having quotes “approved” by politicians, including presidential candidates and their campaign staff. For those who may be confused, the quotes in question were stated on the record in prior interviews. Before the reporters used the quotes in their articles, they sent those quotes to the individual in question in order to obtain their permission to use them. Many times, the person edit or cleaned up the quote. To ensure that I’m not making this up, here is an (unapproved) quote from the article itself.

Villains of meltdown yet to see punishment Did you ever stop to ask yourself, “Who were the winners and losers of the 2008 economic meltdown?” I have. I’m not pleased with the answers I get. Let’s see whom the winners and losers are in the economic crash and perhaps learn some lessons for the future. First, let’s look at the winners: Some investment banks, many of whom made fraudulent and irresponsible decisions ended up not having to pay the consequences of their actions, and instead got billions in government bailouts. None of these top ranking business leaders has been prosecuted for their crimes since the 2008 meltdown. That’s going on four years now and not one major prosecution has been initiated. With the Federal Reserve lowering interest rates, banks benefited from an inflow of cheap money. The government gave them bailout money to keep them afloat, but there was no requirement for them to loan it out. Rather than spreading this money out through cheap loans, they’ve sat on it, making it difficult for businesses and individuals to get loans.

Politics in Focus Rich Elfers Columnist

The low interest rates have encouraged a rising stock market. And the richest 10 percent of the population have benefited because they own 80 percent of the stocks, according to an article in the New York Times. So, who are the losers? Billions of dollars disappeared from the value and equity of our houses, so much so that there are many people who are what is called “underwater” with their mortgages. They’re paying on home loans for a house that is worth less than their debt. All you have to do is to walk through the residential neighborhoods of your town to see houses that have been abandoned and that are not maintained, pulling down the home values of neighboring houses.

The unemployment rate is current at 8.3 percent, improved from its high of 10 percent in October 2009, but still very high. Many businesses have automated their factories, meaning they won’t be hiring semi-skilled and unskilled workers when the economy picks up. Those jobs will be gone. Millions of people saw their life savings disappear and their retirements shrink. Many boomers will not be able to retire as they move into their 60s. What lessons can be learned from this period of inequity? Perhaps the hard lessons my Depression-era parents learned and taught me can help you: Don’t spend more than you make and pay off your debts, especially your home loans, by the time you retire. Live modest lives. Examine what you think you need and decide whether it’s a necessity or a desire. Save, rather than spend. Put your priorities on emotional investments: Invest your time with your family; spend less time in front of the TV, or other electronic devices. That time before your children are

Our Corner FROM 6 “They (approved quotes) are sent by e-mail…to reporters who have interviewed campaign officials under one major condition: the press office has veto power over what statements can be quoted and attributed by name. Most reporters…grudgingly agree. After the interviews, they review their notes, check their tape recorders and send in the juiciest sound bites for review.” Apparently, this practice has been growing as government officials and departments have demanded the right to censor quotes in order to be interviewed. It also caused an uproar within the journalism community. National Journal Editor-in-Chief Ron Fournier wrote a great response, but it’s sad that he even had to clarify it in the first place. “If a public official wants to use NJ as a platform for his/her point of view, the price of admission is a quote that is on-record, unedited and unadulterated,” Fournier wrote. This is stuff you learn

Wednesday, September 19, 2012 • The BONNEY LAKE Courier-Herald • Page 7 the first day of your first journalism class, and it’s reserved for the few dimwits who have no concept of how journalism works and can’t tell the difference between it and public relations. A quote is one of two things, on the record or off the record. Some newspapers allow this, others do not. If it’s off the record, it has to be have been agreed beforehand. Those quotes are not used in a story. Quotes cannot retroactively become off the record, either. If something is stated on the record, a reporter should never have to obtain permission to use it. This newspaper does not and will not ever agree to censorship of quotes as a stipulation for an interview with a public official, or anyone else. If someone is unwilling to be interviewed under such terms, then they are not interviewed or speak off the record. Occasionally we will call people to confirm statistics, facts or statements that were written down by hand and not taped on a voice recorder. This newspaper does not have a “gotcha!” mentality where reporters intentionally try to trap people into

saying things they didn’t mean in order to humiliate them or take their quotes out of context. We do our best to ensure that we quote people and summarize their statements accurately. But what this really is about is politicians trying to control their image as it portrayed to the public through the press. I’m sure reporters from the NYT or Washington Post will assert that it’s the only way they can obtain quotes for their stories, to which I would say that the mere fact that government officials or politicians would demand censorship of their work as a requirement for an interview is a story in and of itself, not to mention the fact that the newspapers would even consider agreeing to such terms. If that’s the requirement in order to effectively cover politics, then what’s the point of having freedom of the press? And, better yet, do they really think the public is going to trust them to cover a story accurately when they can’t even get an unfiltered quote from an official? Also, the phrase “unavailable for comment,” “declined to comment” or “phone calls

and emails were unreturned” is a far better substitute than filtered propaganda worthy of the Pravda because it is just as useful to the public as nothing at all. If newspapers abdicate their responsibility in this matter, their readership might as well go to the politician’s website for information. No respectable editor can or should blame a reporter for not getting a quote from someone because they refused to have it censored. A reporter’s job is not to make a public individual look or sound more eloquent or intelligent than they are. That’s what speech writers, press secretaries and public spokespersons are for. If a government official or politician doesn’t trust a reporter to quote them fairly and accurately, then they have the right to refuse an interview. The second example of bad journalism ethics was the coverage of the Aurora, Colo., theater shooting which resembled more of a paparazzi-like tabloid frenzy than responsible reporting. I previously wrote about these practices in my column discussing the Ohio school shooting and the crass man-

grown goes by oh so quickly. As Barbara Bush said: “At the end of your life, you will never regret not having passed one more test, not winning one more verdict or not closing one more deal. You will regret time not spent with a husband, a friend, a child or a parent.” Don’t be carried away by trying to keep up with those who have lots of material possessions – they probably went into debt to get them. Remember the ancient adage: “A man’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.” Learn a skill that is in big demand and keep learning. Society changes and what was a goodpaying job 20 years ago may no longer exist tomorrow. Adapting to changing times is a must in our global society. Become a lifelong learner. You may not be able to control what happens on the national and international level, but if you’ve done these things, decreasing housing prices won’t affect you much, except on paper, and you won’t have to scramble to pay off your loans after you’ve lost your job. Instead, you’ve developed other marketable skills. If you do these things, you’ll be a winner the next time the economy tanks.

you attend, listen, read the materials provided and interact with the mayor, council, park board and staff: • Different age groups have different preferences. • Do you want trails, a community center or a sports complex or something else? • Where will the proposed projects be built? • What is this going to cost? • How will this be paid for? • What is the difference between a bond, park district, special levy and grants? Please educate yourselves by reading recent articles or visiting the city of Bonney Lake website and reading through the park element of the comprehensive plan to see where future park shortfalls are in Bonney Lake.

ner in which it was handled. I understand that information needs to get out and the public deserves to hear the facts. But it has to be done properly, and the facts need to be substantiated first. For example, before the suspect had even been charged with a crime, his name and a large photo of his face was plastered all over the front pages of a dozen media sites. What if the “suspect” had turned out to just be one of the moviegoers, who had dressed up for the showing, and had managed to wrangle the gun out of the killer’s hand, only to be accidentally arrested in the ensuing confusion? Within days, commentators and pundits had provided just about every kind of motivation and explanation for why the killer had done it, as if the concept of murder was somehow unheard of in the 21st century. But the most inconceivable of all was ABC News reporter Brian Ross who, without any proof or evidence, suggested that a man in Aurora, whose name was the same as the suspect’s and had been found on an Internet site, might be the

suspect. As it turned out, the man Ross had practically fingered for the crime was much older and definitely not the suspect. Ross later apologized on air, but that didn’t stop the man in question from receiving a flood of phone calls. This is a textbook case of “defamation of character,” but that would be too kind. ABC News intentionally put an innocent man’s life in jeopardy in a rush to judgment in the hopes of being the first to report it. When such stories occur, it’s incredibly tempting to put out information that is either uncorroborated or unconfirmed rather than waiting for verifiable facts. When the Titanic sank, newspapers ran stories ranging from how passengers had been shot on the decks to how all aboard had escaped alive before the Carpathia had even reached New York City. After the Alamo fell, a newspaper ran a story about how Davy Crockett was still alive. If the profession wants to avoid a repeat of the yellow journalism era of the early 1900s, these practices need to end.

your preferences and if residents will support the plan proposed by the mayor and his staff. If changes are needed, this is the time to do that. If you don’t support the proposal or the financing mechanism, they need to hear why. Whether you are a teen or a senior citizen now is the time to build consensus and have a dialogue. The goal is to put this on the ballot the early part of 2013.

Please attend Park Summit II to inform yourself on this important park proposal and make your voices heard.

POLICE BLOTTER Bonney Lake All suspects in the police blotter are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. AW, FISHSTICKS!: On Sept. 6 around 7:06 p.m., two officers responded to a domestic dispute at a 183rd Avenue East residence. Two adult women could be heard arguing from outside the house. The officers determined they were sisters living together while one went through a divorce. The guest sister ate a fish stick that apparently belonged to the homeowner sister, kicking off a verbal argument. The homeowner sister requested the guest sister move out. No crime was determined to have occurred, but the officers stood by as the guest sister and her husband gathered her things and left. CHANGE ARTIST DROPS THE ART: At 6:55 p.m. Sept. 3, an officer responded to the South Prairie Pizza Hut to take a theft report. The cashier told the officer that at about 6:44 p.m., a man came in and selected a bottle of water for purchase. He provided a $20 bill and a $1 bill to buy the $1.91 product. She attempted to give the correct change back, but he requested she make change for a $50 bill. He spoke in a speedy manner, confusing the cashier, then requested change for a $100 bill. The ca-

shier told him she would need a manager’s approval for the transaction and left her station. When she returned, $150 had been stolen from her register and the man was leaving the scene in a car resembling a 1990s Oldsmobile. The officer provided the cashier a business card and case number. There was no evidence left at the scene, the restaurant did not have video surveillance, and an immediate area search proved unsuccessful. SACRILEGIOUS VANDALISM: At 5:30 p.m. Sept. 5, an officer was parked near the intersection of state Route 410 and 208th Avenue East when he observed a male in a black shirt and green beanie riding a bike. He caught the officer’s attention because he was initially riding toward the patrol car, then seemed to change direction when he noticed the vehicle. Minutes later, the officer was dispatched to the EastPointe Church in regards to a vandalism that had just occurred. The front of the building had been sprayed with blue paint, with one obscene statement, the anarchy symbol, and the phrase “King 20K JK.” A witness at the scene showed the officers photos she had taken with her iPad, which displayed the green beanie man from earlier spraying the building. The suspect was not able to be located, but the officer took his own evidentiary photos of the vandalism, and obtained a promise from the witness to send copies of her photos with a written statement.

Nothing further at the time of the report. BIKE THEFT: At 12:05 p.m. Sept. 6, an employee of the Rainier Board Shop reported two inventory bicycles stolen to a Bonney Lake officer. The bikes—a chrome Schwinn BMX and a purple and silver Trek mountain bike—were stored in an unsecured trailer behind the shop. The total loss was estimated at $650. The employee said he suspected a person associated with the Mexican restaurant next door, but could not provide any specific suspect information or evidence associating the man with the restaurant. No further action on the case at the time of the report. PAPERWORK PROWL: At 9:12 a.m. Sept. 8, a 194th Avenue East resident reported her vehicle prowled the night before. She had parked the car in her driveway unlocked. In the morning, she discovered evidence of entry. Most of her vehicle’s paperwork—including registration, insurance card, owner’s manual and maintenance receipts—had been stolen from the glove compartment. The owner requested to file the report due to ongoing problems with theft and vandalism in the neighborhood. As the officer left the area, he found several of the owner’s stolen items in the street and returned them to her. The owner’s manual and insurance cards were not found. No suspects known at the time of the report.

Bonney Lake in line for $4.5 million for road improvements Staff Writer

The Puget Sound Regional Council is asking for public comment on a drafty regional Transportation Improvement Plan that includes more than $4.5 million in projects for the Bonney Lake area. “These projects were selected on their merits and support the region’s economic development and growth,” Bellevue Council member and


Transportation Policy Board Chair Claudia Balduccisaid in a press release. “When Congress approved these funds earlier this year, their focus was on growing and sustaining jobs. These projects, large and small, will both put people to work and shore up the foundations of our economy for the future.” There are three Bonney Lake-specific projects on the final list. Coming in at $174,730 is the Angeline Road South overlay project to resurface

Angeline from Panorama Boulevard to Rhodes Lake Road. Also on the list is thr Church Lake Road West overlay project, which will resurface Church Lake from Veterans Memorial Drive to Evergreen Drive at a cost of $161,755. But the big ticket item for Bonney Lake is $4,228,120 for improvements to the intersection at state Route 410 and Veterans Memorial Drive. A complete list of projects and more detailed information is available online

at Many of the projects can also be viewed geographically on PSRC’s Web-based map. For more information, contact Kelly McGourty at 206-971-3601 or The public comment period is scheduled for Sept. 13 to Oct. 25.

Fitness chat: healthy steps lead to a marathon Dear Stephanie and Bruce: I am 46 and one of my Bucket List items is to participate in a marathon. I need your help to make this happen in 2013. What tips can you provide? Ray Stephanie: Thank you for your question. Running or walking a marathon is an excellent goal and something that I believe anyone can achieve, as long as you plan and prepare for the event. There are many things to consider when you are setting a marathon goal, the first being, are you healthy and fit enough to begin this journey? We recommend seeing your doctor if this is not something that you are sure about. Second, do you have the support of your family? A marathon is a big

commitment and is challenging to accomplish if family is not supportive of the time and energy that such an endeavor entails. If the answer to both of these questions is yes, then there are some things to consider when Stephanie Norton-Bredl choosing a marathon. • Does the race have a time limit? • Will you walk or run, or a combination of both? • How many months/weeks will you need to train? Typically, the more deconditioned you are, the more time you will

need to train for the big event. • Do you want to travel to the event or do something local? • What type of support will you need? A cheering squad, a coach, Bruce deJong a running club? Bruce: The planning and preparing part can be an opportunity to involve family members with your goal by soliciting their input with selecting the event location, customizing the training plan and charting weekly progress. We find the probability of goal achievement increases when it brings

rewards for you and those you care about; think of it as multi-tasking while you grind away at the goal. Stephanie: There are several good training plans available for free on the Internet. The better plans encourage a gradual increase in weekly running volume over the course of 20 or more weeks rather than an aggressive, short plan that can lead to injuries. Bruce: Several people have had success with the Jeff Galloway training plan which is available at It is a 32-week plan that incorporates a mix of running and walking. Another good

As believers in the nervous system’s ability to maintain and restore health, chiropractors are concerned about preserving the well-being of the nervous system’s “command center,” the brain. In recent years, there has been a lot of attention paid to concussions and their detrimental effects. When parents think about their children’s risk of sustaining a sports-related concussion, football primarily comes to mind. However, it should be noted that, while nearly half (47%) of all concussions experienced by high school athletes happen in football, other sports also pose considerable risk. In particular, girls’ soccer and basketball and boys’ wrestling, ice hockey, and lacrosse are the sports with the greatest risk of head injury. Injured kids shouldn’t return to sports until fully healed. P.S. Concussion symptoms include headache, dizziness, nausea, ringing in the ears, fatigue, and confusion. Dr. Aaron Smith would like to welcome you to Paradigm Chiropractic (formerly Sunset Chiropractic), 22015 Hwy 410 E., Bonney Lake. At Paradigm Chiropractic we appreciate the opportunity to provide you with specific rehabilitative exercises combined with gentle chiropractic care and massage.

eating and compulsive food restricting (dieting) cause a behavioral vicious circle in which overeating leads to remorse, self-recrimination, heightened obsessions and further overeating.” The result is enormous emotional suffering, “suffering from a constant preoccupation with food and weight.” Dr. Sirota believes that it is actually not desire for food that lies at the root of this kind of addiction but rather an inner emptiness, hurt or loss that needs to be filled.

PSE customers to receive ‘smelly’ pamphlet The Puget Sound Energy bills reaching more than 1.5 million homes and businesses through October include a scratchand-sniff pamphlet to remind customers of the odorant used to help identify natural gas leaks. A scratch on the natural gas safety pamphlet releases a distinctive, sulfur-like aroma, a smell similar to rotten eggs. To help detect natural gas leaks more easily, PSE and other natural gas utilities add an odorant, called mercaptan, to natural gas, which is naturally odorless and colorless.

“Every family needs to know that ‘rotten egg’ odor of natural gas so they can recognize, react and report a gas leak around their home or elsewhere,” said Andy Wappler, vice president of corporate affairs for PSE. “Safety comes first, and having your family know what to do is our top priority.” In addition to bearing the “rotten egg smell,” the pamphlet also guides people to call 811 two days before digging to prevent damage to underground utility lines and on how to recognize and safely report suspected natural gas leaks by going to a

Bathroom job doesn’t have to be expensive According to Remodeling magazine’s 2011-12 “Cost vs. Value Report,” which compares the average cost for 35 popular remodeling projects with the value those projects retain at resale, homeowners could spend more than $50,000 on an upscale bathroom remodel. That makes a bathroom remodel one of the


more expensive home improvement projects a homeowner can undertake. For many homeowners, that costly price tag is simply too much money to commit, especially in an economy where money is still hard to come by. Fortunately, there are several simple ways homeowners can give their bath-

If a natural gas odor is smelled inside a house or building, the occupants should leave the premises immediately. If anyone suspects a natural gas leak, follow these steps: • do not use phones • do not turn any electric switches, appliances or lights on or off. • do not smoke, light a match, use a

rooms a new look and feel without breaking the bank. • Install a new shower. One of the best ways to give a bathroom a new look is to replace the traditional tub and showerhead with a bigger, more airy shower. Such showers are typically found in modern hotels that boast luxury amenities. Instead of the tub and slide glass, choose a hinged door with heavier glass, replacing the bathtub entirely. • Add windows and a skylight. Many bathrooms, particularly those in older homes, sorely lack adequate lighting. Adding some extra windows and a skylight can give a bathroom an entirely new look, even if you don’t replace any of the existing features or fixtures. Sunlight can make a bathroom more inviting, giving

Sprucing up a bathroom doesn’t have to cost a fortune. There are many small projects that modernize the room at moderate expense.

REMODEL FROM 13 the room the feeling of a sanctuary that many of today’s homeowners prefer. • Add some entertainment. Just like they offer larger showers with more room to breathe, many luxury hotels now ensure guests can be entertained even while they’re in the bathroom. Such hotels often feature small flatscreen televisions that sit behind the bathroom’s mirror. Guests don’t even see the television until it’s turned on. Homeowners can bring this lap of luxury into their own homes. h

of burnt, straw-like grass where a lush lawn used to be can be aggravating. The same can be said for finding dog “presents” all over the yard. All it takes is stepping in or sliding in a pile of joy to raise blood pressure. Plus, there’s the extra work of tracking down such presents and having to clean them up. This can be time-consuming with a big yard, not to mention messy and smelly. Containing your dog to a run will keep messes all in once place. When the dog cannot be supervised by you, a dog run will be a way to let the dog spend time outside in a way that he or she won’t get into trouble. The run can be constructed of any material you desire, whether chain-link fencing, wood slats, lattice material, or tightly spaced shrubbery. Pea gravel is a good material to use on the floor of the dog run. Not only This is especially valuable to homeowners whose bathrooms currently feature soaking tubs where they can escape the daily grind with a hot bath and now even watch a little television while they soak. • Replace old tiles. Many homeowners cite their bathroom’s tiles as the feature they would most like to change. Old linoleum tiles give many bathrooms a dated look that few of today’s homeowners find appealing. Glass tiles are growing in popularity, but those old linoleum or glazed tiles can be swapped out with porcelain or stone tiles to give the room an entirely new look without spending exces-

It also can be hosed off and topped off when gravel is depleted. Avoid landscape fabrics or artificial turf that is not designed for pets. It may collect waste and lead to the proliferation of bacteria, which can create odor and unsanitary conditions for the dog. Many people like to camouflage dog runs from the rest of the yard. Trailing vines of ivy or other upward growing plants sively. • Replace the toilet. Another easy way to give a bathroom a new look is to replace the toilet. Older toilets may be eyesores and many are not very eco-friendly, either. A new toilet can give the bathroom a sleek, modern look, and since many of today’s luxury models are low-flow, you’ll also save money on your monthly water bill while doing something good for the environment. Renovating a bathroom is a top priority for many homeowners. But if a full-scale remodel is not within your budget, there are still plenty of inexpensive ways to give your bathroom a new look and feel.

Succulents can keep garden chores simple Now is the time of year to focus on outdoor landscaping projects. One popular project involves redesigning the front yard or backyard to include an array of different flowers and foliage. While many people gravitate to the flashy and colorful annuals on display at nurseries and home centers, you may want to consider adding some succulents to your home landscape.

Succulent plants can be a boon to a homeowner without the time or resources to maintain plants. Succulents get their name from their primary function, which is drawing up and storing water. Succulents are able to thrive in arid conditions, and there are more than 300 different types, including some exotic species.

bushes or big rocks that don’t allow traction. Do make a dog running path by the fence where there is a lot of foot traffic. This way your dog can run back and forth and watch the neighbors go by. Again, pea gravel is a good choice here so that it will mask paw-trodden grass. Dogs will behave like dogs, so pet owners should learn the best way to enjoy the backyard together. Training the pooch to relieve himself in one spot and creating places that are safe for him to urinate may alleviate destructive behavior.

may suffice. Avoid planting any poisonous plants next to the run so they are not accidentally consumed. It is also best to keep sweet nectar plants away to minimize bee and wasps from flying close to the dog. If you do not want to segregate your dog from the rest of the yard, find ways to prevent him or her from getting into places you’d rather keep off limits. Cobble rock is often difficult for dogs to walk on. Use it to form barriers of 3 to 5 inches in width to prevent access to certain parts of the yard. Border planting beds with thorny

Millions of dogs share the homes and hearts of people across the country. Dogs can provide companionship, affection and joy. But when dogs spend time outdoors and cause damage to lawns and gardens, that cute and cuddly appeal might dwindle. Although dogs are beneficial in numerous ways, their tendency to create unsightly messes in the yard have many homeowners wringing their hands in frustration. Erecting a dog run or using other strategies may help to alleviate any damage the dog causes. A dog run is essentially a fenced-in part of the yard where dogs can play or be trained to relieve themselves. As most pet owners know, dogs – particularly females because their urine is concentrated to one spot on the lawn – can create unsightly urine burns. Looking at patches

Finding the balance between beautiful and ‘livable’ rooms Fall is the time of year when thoughts turn back toward the home. With kids back in school and the holidays approaching, many homeowners look for ways to make their rooms more stylish, but struggle to find the balance between beautiful and livable. “Of course your home should be stylish. But if you can’t enjoy living in it, what’s the point?” says Erinn Valencich, a Los Angeles-based interior designer and blogger for HGTV’s Design Happens. “I believe in creating beautiful spaces that are fun, elegant and livable.” Redecorating a space with a few key elements can completely transform the look and feel of the room without breaking the budget. “Keep the livability of the design elements in mind to make sure you have a balance that works within your lifestyle, but still gives the room personality and a special flair for style,” notes Valencich. One of the easiest ways to breathe new life into a room is by refreshing the floors. A dull or scuffed floor can make a room look tired. Selecting the right floor-

ing will create the perfect canvas to help tie all a room’s design elements together. Flooring is one of the key design elements that will bring both personality and livability together. Adding personality “Great rooms have a personality ... a mix of vision, style and inspirations from everyday life, all while being comfortable and easy to live in,” says Valencich, who shares her tips at www.quickstepstyle. com/videos. Blending a variety of influences will add distinction to a room. Start off by having a clearly defined color palette. One option Valencich suggests is selecting a rich-toned floor to serve as a warm background for furniture. To add contrast to a warm floor, add a subtle color to the walls. Then, incorporating a collection and variety of prints and frames will help break up the wall color and add visual interest. Once all these elements are brought toget her, Va lencich recommends adding a few pieces and accessories that will add dimension, such as a

Valencich’s recommendations include: • Keep both comfort and style in mind when selecting furniture pieces. • Develop a list of how the room will be used by your family and guests.

Her topic is “Ideas and Answers for Fall Gardening” and she will give advice on fall decorating, planting and lawn care. Admission is free. Information at The third week of September is when the shorter days and cooler nights awaken dormant lawns. If you allowed your lawn to “go golden” or lie dormant without extra water this summer, it’s time to celebrate your lower water bill with a good long drink – for the grass. After a few days of heavy rain, invest in a greener future and fertilize the lawn with a slow-release fall and winter lawn food. If you aerate the lawn before you fertilize you’ll be encouraging deeper roots and a more droughtresistant lawn next summer. If you really want to save water and save money when it comes to lawn care, make this the fall you add topsoil on top of the old lawn, raking water-holding compost and topsoil mix into the holes left from a core aerator. Improving the soil can be done without tilling up the turf, but you must remove plugs of old soil so the new soil can get down to those roots. There’s no need to rake up the ugly plugs left over from lawn aeration. They will break down over the winter and add to the soil. September and early October is also a good month to overseed right on top of your old lawn. Spreading new grass seed works best if you first aerate, then add new

Columnist I have a burning bush that starting turning yellow then brown this summer. The shrub looks like it is dying. Up close I can see webbing on some of the leaves – very fine webs. Should I dig out my burning bush? I do love the brilliant red color of the leaves every autumn but this year my burning bush just went from yellow to brown. P.C., Enumclaw Sounds like your burning bush (Euonymus alatus) is being consumed by spider mites. The fine webs you observed are one hot tip toward answering your burning question and solving this case but don’t prepare to remove the body just yet. Winter is coming and sometimes a few months in the deep freeze can mean a fresh start for victims of insect invasions. To foil the tiny culprits be sure to collect and remove all the fallen leaves and clean up around the base of the burning bush and layer on a few inches of bark chips, moo doo or compost to cover the soil and seal in any mite eggs. In January you may want to consider spraying your leafless shrub with a dormant oil spray to get rid of mites hiding in the corky bark. Give your infested burning bush another year to shake off the past before passing judgment and throwing in the trowel.

After a long summer of open windows, sticky treats and constant activity in and out the door, you might notice that your carpets are looking a bit drab. Keeping carpets clean might seem like a daunting task, but with some tips from the experts it’s quicker and easier than you think. Carpet provides good traction, absorbs noises and saves homeowners money because it naturally insulates a room. And, contrary to popular misconceptions, carpet that is cleaned regularly is fine for people with allergies, and even asthma. The best practice for keeping carpets consistently clean is having a regular maintenance routine. Refreshing carpets after a special event, season of tough use, or simply any time of year is easy with these tips from the experts at the Carpet and Rug Institute, a national carpet trade association that focuses on science-based research, customer advo-

cacy and environmental initiatives. Create a vacuum schedule Have you ever wondered if vacuuming really makes a difference? Removing soil when it’s on the surface, before it gets tramped down, is the first and most important step in carpet maintenance. Use slow, repetitive motions that overlap (about four swipes), ensuring you get right up to the edges where dust, pollen and pet dander like to accumulate. How often do you need to vacuum? That answer may surprise you. Generally once a week with a CRIcertified vacuum is a good place to start, but depending on how frequently the area is used, you’ll likely want to do it more often. For example, high-traffic or pet areas should be vacuumed daily, medium-traffic areas require about twice a week and light-traffic areas can be done once a week. Just as you wouldn’t wear a shirt over and over again without washing it, you don’t want to go too long

between vacuuming your carpets. Treat stains the correct way Up to 98 percent of carpet is manufactured in the United States and most is made to be stain-resistant. However, junior’s ice cream cone drips and Fido’s dirty paws can leave marks that may seem almost too difficult to remove. No matter how hard you try to prevent them, stains do happen, so it’s important to act quickly. Scoop up solids and blot liquids with a dry, white

The advantages to planting succulents are many. Because they store water in their stems, roots and leaves, this reduces the number of times an owner must water them. Succulents can go several days between waterings. Succulents, like cacti, that have few if any leaves, are perhaps best at managing water because they lose little to evaporation through the foliage. Succulents are particularly good to have in areas prone to arid temperatures or where water restrictions are often in place. They can be environmentally friendly because of their ability to conserve water. Succulents treat water as a precious resource, and their entire makeup is designed to minimize consumption of water. Because they thrive in sunlight, succulents can be the ideal plants to put

in extremely sunny and hot locations. They will not wither and dry out due to extreme heat. For particularly dry areas of landscape or where soil is subpar, consider the placement of different varieties of succulents to create a varied and eye-catching display. There are many other advantages to planting succulents; some of which include: • Succulents offer contrasts in shape, texture and colors. With the many varieties, you’re bound to find something interesting and different to add to the landscape. • Whether you have ample acreage in the yard or simply some containers available for planting, succulents will thrive. They grow just as well in containers as they do in the ground. • Succulents don’t tend to require pruning or cutting back of the plant. With this in mind, you can expect them to grow large. Therefore, space the plants

adequately to allow for growth. • Succulents are perennials. So once you plant them, they should last for years and years without the hassle and expense you can expect from planting annuals every year. • Indoor greenhouses or sunrooms can be another good place for succulents. They prefer not to get chilled, which makes a controlled environment advantageous. When considering a spot for your succulents, choose areas that get plenty of sun. Think about pruning back or removing trees that would create too much shade on the succulents. Space the succulents widely apart -- more so than you would with other plants -- to allow them to spread. Pebbles or gravel make good mulching material around succulents so that drainage will be adequate. It will also set the succulents apart from other plants by contextualizing them in your garden.

Succulents might be the answer for gardeners who are looking for low-maintenance, low-water options.

Take steps to avoid a home’s ‘silent killer’ It’s colorless, odorless and the No. 1 cause of accidental poisoning in the United States. And, it worsens in the winter. Known as the “silent

killer,” carbon monoxide is responsible for an average of 450 deaths and 20,000 emergency room visits each year, according to the Journal of the American

Medical Association. With more than two-fifths of all CO poisonings occurring between December and February, homeowners are at increased risk

once temperatures begin to drop. First Alert, a manufacturer of home-safety products, recommends the following tips and tools for keeping your home and loved ones warm - and safe - this winter and all year long: • Run kitchen vents or exhaust fans any time the stove is in use. The kitchen stove is among the most frequent sources of CO poisoning in the home. To help

eliminate danger of overexposure, never use the oven to heat a home. Always run exhaust fans when cooking, especially during the holidays when stoves are left on for longer periods of time. Also, open a nearby window periodically when cooking to allow fresh air to circulate. • Never use generators indoors. In the case of a power outage, portable electricity generators must be used outside only

with power brought into the structure with a cord. Never use them inside the home, in a garage or in any confined area that can allow CO to collect. And be careful to follow operating instructions closely. Also refrain from using charcoal grills, camp stoves or other similar devices indoors. • Have fuel-burning appliances inspected regularly.

I have a hellebore plant that has grown too large. Can I divide it? What time of year is best for dividing up hellebores? G.M., email Bad news for the heavenly hellebore. These tough perennials aren’t so tough once you get down to their roots – they hate to be divided.

to separate the thick root clusters, leaving at least a few leaves attached to each division. Replant immediately into soft soil that has been amended with compost. Put any leftover divisions into containers to give away. Hellebores do not need a lot of fertilizer but they really appreciate a lot of compost. Remember the middle of the plant is the old, weak section so you can’t just slice off a side section and hope the mother plant will go on to do great things.

Arrange for a professional inspection of all fireplaces and fuel-burning appliances – things like furnaces, stoves, clothes dryers, water heaters and space heaters – annually to detect any CO leaks.

• Be mindful of the garage. Warming the car in the morning before work is common during the winter months, but running vehicles inside an attached garage, even if the door is open, is hazardous, as CO can leak into the home. • Install/test CO alarms. Carbon monoxide alarms are the only way to detect this poisonous gas in a home.

For maximum protection, alarms should be installed on every level of the home and near each sleeping area. Test alarm function monthly and change batteries every six months. In addition, alarms should be replaced every five to seven years to ensure proper function. If the installation date is unknown, replace immediately.

Randy King, superintendent of Mount Rainier National Park presented a plaque to McCarthy commemorating the May 2012 announcement by Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar and National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis that designated the Foothills Trail as a National Recreation Trail. The popular Foothills Trail, which winds through east Pierce County from Puyallup to Buckley, is among 54 trails around the country that are joining the National Recreational Trail system. The Foothills Trail has been constructed in sections as finances, environmental permits and county ownership have allowed. When complete, the trail will be more than 28 miles in length. A key portion of the trail—which awaits funding—would provide a bridge over the White River, linking the Buckley and Enumclaw sections. The national recreation trail program is jointly administered by the National Park Service and the USDA Forest Service in conjunction with federal and nonprofit partners, notably American Trails, which hosts the national recreation trails website at nationalrecreationtrails.

GBLHS to Sponsor Milotte Film Festival


he Greater Bonney Lake Historical Society is sponsoring the Milotte Wildlife Film Festival from 11:am to 4:00 pm on Saturday, October 20, 2012 at the Bonney Lake Justice Center (9002 Main Street East). In 1959, Al and Elma Milotte moved to Bonney Lake. They purchased and built a home on the property currently known as “Sky Island”. In 1948, Walt Disney had viewed a short wildlife film by Alfred and Elma. Inspired by what he saw, Walt hired them to film on location in the Alaska wilderness.

The result was the first of Disney’s celebrated True-Life Adventure films, “Seal Island,” which won an Academy Award®. With the success of “Seal Island,” the Milottes continued to travel the globe for Disney. GBLHS plans to show some of Milotte’s Wildlife films at the upcoming festival. Much of the Milotte’s document collection has been donated to the GBLHS which is currently reviewing and cataloging the material. Visit for more information about the festival. 

Bonney Lake Sales Tax Going Down!!

Public Works Completes Paving at Cedarview and West tapps


here is now another good reason to shop locally. Effective October 1st, the sales tax rate in Bonney Lake will decrease from 9.4% to 8.8%. This is a result of Bonney Lake’s removal from Pierce Transit. This lower tax rate is another great reason to shop Bonney Lake first. Visit the City’s Shop Bonney Lake online business directory. Look for the logo on the left column of the City website at to find out about area businesses, promotions, coupons, and job opportunities. Shop Bonney Lake First. If you’re in an accident, or a victim of a crime, you need help and you need it quickly. Every time you shop in Bonney Lake a penny of every dollar goes to keep our city government running—including our Police Department. When you spend your dollars elsewhere, your money goes to equip somebody else’s Police Department. Be smart. Shop Bonney Lake first. It helps you and it helps your neighbors. In addition, there are a number of other reasons to shop Bonney Lake first: Bonney Lake businesses provide a majority of local jobs; the business community will become more reflective of Bonney Lake’s unique needs and shopping preferences; the sales taxes you pay support this community and county: fixing your roads, maintaining your recreational facilities, shopping local reduces your carbon footprint, local business owners invest in the community and have a vested interest in the future of this community. 


abor Day week saw several streets in Bonney Lake receive a new lease on life. Three inches of new asphalt was placed on 208th Ave and 97th Street in the Cedar View sub-division on Tuesday, 4 September, and on West Tapps Hwy from Church Lake Drive to Church Lake Road on Thursday, 6 September. The Cedar View project culminated several months of work that saw new sidewalks, water lines, dry sewer lines, and stormwater lines installed. New secure mail boxes will also be installed on these two streets. This sidewalk project was given a high priority in order to connect Cedar View Park to the SR410 sidewalk, making access to the park much safer for pedestrians. As a result of the extensive trench work done to install new utility pipes on these two streets, both streets were rebuilt with a 3-inch pavement surface. This contract was awarded to Jennings Northwest LLC in the amount of $767,037. Work was started on May 30th and is going to be completed ahead of schedule by the

end of September. The City Project Manager who inspected the construction work was King Cooper. The West Tapps Hwy overlay project was given priority due to the frequent need for City Public Works staff to make repairs on the road. In many places, there was less then an inch of asphalt on top of the ground causing frequent pot holes and failure at the edge of the pavement. This overlay also extended the overlay applied earlier in the year when the new sidewalk and water line were installed through Allan Yorke Park on West Tapps Hwy. This contract was awarded to Lakeridge Paving Company in the amount of $92,996. King Cooper was also the Project Manager on this contract. Assistant Engineer Andrew Fonda designed the West Tapps Hwy overlay contract in record time. The utility portion of these two projects was funded with Water and Sewer System Development Charge (SDC) revenue and street repairs were funded with gas tax and Real Estate Excise Tax (REET) revenue…Your Dollars At Work. 
