Moody’s downgrades city’s bond rating again BY STEVE HUNTER shunter@kentreporter.com

The city of Kent’s struggle to keep revenues above expenses took another hit as Moody’s Investors Services downgraded the city’s bond rating for the second time this year. New York-based Moody’s down-

graded the city to a Baa2 rating from A1 and gave the city a negative outlook to the rating for $72.9 million worth of limited tax general obligation bonds. Moody’s provides financial research on bonds issued by commercial and government entities and is considered one of the big three of credit-rating

agencies along with the Fitch Group and Standard & Poor’s. “Disappointed,” said Kent Councilman Les Thomas about the latest rating during a phone interview. “I’m very concerned with the direction we’re going.” Obligations rated Baa are judged

City officials plan to help slow down 223rd Drive traffic BY STEVE HUNTER shunter@kentreporter.com

Kent city officials will work with residents along Southeast 223rd Drive to find a way to slow down drivers who speed through the neighborhood. The street drew the city’s focus after a 1996 Nissan Coupe driven by Justin Jerald Cordova, 18, struck and killed motorcyclist David Daniel, 55, on Aug. 22 along the street. Cordova reportedly had a blood-alcohol level of 0.12 percent and traveled at an estimated 65 mph in the 25 mph zone just prior to the

accident. Cordova has been charged with vehicular homicide. That accident increased the efforts by residents who live in the neighborhood to get the city to install a speed bump, traffic circle or other device to slow traffic down. “We have 73 signatures from people who live along Southeast 223rd Drive who want speed bumps or a roundabout or some physical structure to slow people down,” said Matt Richner, a resident of the neighborhood.

Trial date for alleged pimp continued to March BY STEVE HUNTER

shunter@kentreporter.com

A man who allegedly made at least $192,000 as a pimp in Kent and Seattle had been scheduled to go to trial Sept. 18. But defense attorneys for Shacon Fontane Barbee, 33, of Seattle, received a continuance from a King County Superior Court judge to have more time to prepare for trial, according to the King County

Prosecuting Attorney’s Office. Barbee now faces a March 12 trial for charges of promoting prostitution, leading organized crime, promoting sexual abuse of a minor and other offenses. He had an initial trial date of September 2011 after his arrest by Kent Police in December 2010. Barbee remains in the county jail at the Norm Maleng Regional Justice Center in Kent. Bail was set at $500,000. Barbee allegedly made at least

$192,000 as a pimp during one eight-month period, according to charging papers filed against Barbee by King County prosecutors. A then 19-year-old prostitute told detectives that she earned about $2,000 per week mainly from working along Pacific Highway South in Kent and Denny Way in Seattle. She gave all of that money to Barbee. Barbee pleaded not guilty to the charges against him. The charges

Meridian Banks housing development is out of the courts but still up in the air

CAT SPAY STATION COMING HERE TUESDAY

BY STEVE HUNTER shunter@kentreporter.com

A controversial housing development along Lake Meridian in Kent that stalled in the courts for years no longer remains tied up in any disputes between the developer and the city. Developer Bill Floten has yet to file any further plans with the city beyond his revised preliminary plat or subdivision plan filed last fall. Floten initially submitted subdivision plans to the city seven years ago for 27 homes that started all of the controversy as neighbors objected to six homes planned for wetlands along the shore in the northwest corner of the popular lake surrounded by homes and a city park. “All litigation, hearing examiner appeals, etc… at this time are over and done,” said City Attorney Tom Brubaker in

an email. “It is up to Mr. Floten to go ahead and construct his improvements.” So far, Floten has yet to take any further steps toward building the homes. “We have not heard anything from the applicant regarding status or future plans,” said city planner Erin George in an email. “No permits beyond the preliminary plat have been submitted yet.” Floten and his attorney Bill Williamson fought for years in an attempt to get approval for six of the homes to be built close to the shore before city hearing examiners and a King County Superior Court judge backed the city’s conditions to require compliance with wetland regulations. Voicemail messages left for Floten and Williamson by the Kent Reporter were not returned. [ more DEVELOPMENT page 4 ]

Floten also wanted a further extension of his deadline to file a final plat or subdivision application but City Hearing Examiner

Kimberly Allen in February upheld the deadline of Oct. 15, 2015. Floten wanted the seven-year period to build the homes to start in 2011 with his revised

preliminary plat rather than the original preliminary plat approved in 2007. Floten did receive a one-year extension from the City Council and a two-

year extension from the Legislature, which extended the preliminary plat period to seven years from five years. Michelle McDowell, who lives on the lake and fought against the six homes proposed for the wetlands area, said she hasn’t heard of any plans for construction to start. “That’s sad,” said McDowell, who objected to the homes on the wetlands but not the development itself. “The homes could’ve been built in the beginning if they (the developers) had gone along with the rules and watched the wetland. That was at the height of the economy. They could’ve been built and gone. I don’t know why they fought that.” City officials approved the Meridian Banks preliminary plat in October 2007 with a condition that required compliance with wetland regulations. The hearing examiner ruled Floten must prove he will

take steps to mitigate the impact on wetlands as required under the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA). Those steps had not been taken. The state policy requires local agencies to consider the likely environmental consequences of a proposal before approving or denying the proposal. King County Superior Court Judge Kimberley Prochnau ruled in 2008 that “Floten failed to prove that the hearing examiner’s denial of Floten’s SEPA was clearly erroneous.” Floten claimed wetlands do not exist on the property. But Prochnau wrote that documents and testimony showed the proposed development would impact wetlands. During his argument before Prochnau, Williamson, the attorney, said the shoreline property features “wet lawns, not wetlands.” After losing further appeals, Floten finally revised

the layout to accommodate the wetlands. City officials approved that plat in October 2011. “The revised layout is still 27 lots, but everything shifted north a bit to accommodate the wetland and buffer (which is located along the lake shore),” George said. “There are still six waterfront lots, but they got deeper to accommodate the wetland and buffer (which will be protected in a sensitive area easement across the lots).” The next steps for Floten, if he chooses to take them, are to submit civil construction (engineering) plans, a shoreline substantial development permit and the final plat application, George said. Once civil plans and the shoreline permit are issued, and the final plat is found to comply with city standards, the final plat goes to the City Council for approval.

www.kentreporter.com [ RATING from page 1 ] “Standard & Poor’s just came out a couple of days earlier that they had not changed our A status,� Cooke said during a phone interview. “It was quite a surprise to see the difference.� Standard & Poor’s Ratings Services gave Kent an A-plus on its general obligation bonds. The company’s A-plus rating means the city has “strong capacity to meet financial commitments, but is somewhat susceptible to adverse economic conditions and changes in circumstances.� AAA and AA are the highest ratings by Standard & Poor’s and D is the lowest. Moody’s said Kent’s “downgrade reflects the city’s severely deteriorated financial position and stressed medium-term liquidity, as recurring operating deficits depleted cash and reserve levels across all governmental funds. Additionally, the city faces an outsize funding shortfall from recent reductions in sales and real estate transfer taxes dedicated to limited tax debt service.� Moody’s downgraded Kent in February from Aa3 to A1. In Moody’s terms, an Aa3 rat-

ing means that the city has a very strong ability to meet its financial commitments while a rating of A1 represents that the city has a strong capacity to meet its financial obligations, but is somewhat more Cooke susceptible to the adverse effects of changes in circumstances and economic conditions than obligors in higher-rated categories. The Moody’s ratings range from a top mark of Aaa and then drop to Aa, A, Baa, Ba, B, Caa, Ca and C. Numerical modifiers 1, 2, and 3 also are added to letter-ratings with 1 the highest. With the rating drop of Kent to a moderate credit risk, Moody’s also took into account the cityowned ShoWare Center’s total operating losses of more than $1.3 million in the three years since the arena opened in 2009. The city uses capital budget funds to cover the losses. “The rating is further pressured by the long-term need to honor an unrated parity limited tax contingent loan agreement on sales tax and revenue bonds issued by a struggling city arena enterprise,� Moody’s said.

Thomas said he expects job cuts might be needed to get the city’s fiscal health in order. “The options are to increase revenue and decrease expenses and I see revenues decreasing,� Thomas said. “Most of the expenses are personnel. Services are going to have to be cut. We need to face the music and make decisions.� City officials estimate that sales tax revenue will be $880,000 or 5.3 percent below budget for 2012. Despite that drop, the city expects to finish the year with a fund balance of $1.7 million because of slight increases in tax revenue from building permits, plan check fees and recreation fees as well as expenses coming in about $853,000 below budget. The City Council earlier this year referred a property tax levy increase to voters on the November ballot to help pay for street and park repairs. The council also approved hiring a consultant to help find about $2 million in cuts in the city budget. That report is expected to be released in November.

But those steps didn’t seem to impress Moody’s. “The negative outlook incorporates Moody’s expectation that the city’s financial flexibility will continue to be challenged as it diverts a substantial portion of future operational cash flows to resolve deficits and internal debts throughout governmental funds. The outlook also reflects uncertainty regarding the city’s ability to implement its six year recovery plan, which includes additional proposed revenue from an approved utility tax increase, seeking new business taxes, a voted levy lift, as well as increased budgetary discipline.�

Too much debt Cooke said the six-year plan will be part of the 2013-14 budget she presents in October to the council. She said Moody’s is right that the city has too much debt. “We need to take care of our debt burden, which is holding us down,� Cooke said. “We already had a lot of debt when I became mayor. But this recession kicked us in the gut and the teeth in order to pay down the debt load.� Cooke said her budget proposal will include some type of business

Kent is helped by having a large, relatively resilient property tax base as well as a stable local economy benefitting from location in the Seattle metropolitan area, Moody’s noted. Moody’s reported the city could move its rating up with improved internal liquidity and available reserve levels; increased Public Facilities District (which oversees the ShoWare Center) self-sufficiency and decreased subsidy of arena debt and operations; and successful operating adjustments and revenue initiatives to align recurring expenditures with recurring revenues. Thomas, who chairs the council’s Operations Committee that oversees the budget, placed the item on the committee’s agenda Tuesday after talking with Councilwoman Jamie Perry to start discussion about getting the city’s rating back up. “We’ve made big cuts, we need to make more,� Thomas said. “We can’t wait until spring.

It is not anti-gay to continue a definition of marriage that is held in all major religions and cultures; marriage is between one man and one women. Good people have been sold on this issues as a right and not a foundational value of our American culture. Gay couples already have achieved the basic rights and have not been discriminated against.

Question of the week:

I hope Kent voters will join me in voting to pass Proposition 1, the upcoming parks and streets levy. Kent has a great park system but many of our parks are in need. Contrary to the opinion expressed in the Sept. 7 Reporter by my friend, Michelle McDowell, the city has been, and is being proactive, not reactive. The city has constantly been monitoring the conditions of the parks and their assets. But the economic recession of the past few years has resulted in fewer resources to properly meet the needs of local parks and roads. The needs continue to grow. Rather than reacting after something bad happened, the city was proactive and sought citizen input on what to do. Two committees were formed. The committees were comprised of a broad cross section of Kent residents who showed interest and were willing to get involved and devote their time and energy to help solve a Kent community problem. It is no surprise that the roads committee had local business owners on it, many Kent residents themselves. The roads committee was not comprised of people seeking to form a conspiracy between the Chamber of Commerce and the city. I was also on the parks committee. We scrutinized park needs, closely reviewing the inventory done by the Kent park staff. Park assets were rated on a scale of 1 (failing assets/safety risks) to 5 (new/in good working shape). We prioritized these needs, focusing on the “1’s” with public safety issues. Public safety is a local responsibility. Safe streets and public parks are core local responsibilities. When parks are allowed to become rundown or unsafe, they become risks and liabilities. They become havens for criminal activities. On the flip side, property values are enhanced when local parks are properly maintained. So is our quality of life. The parks committee comprised of liberals, conservatives and everything in-between, discussed as many funding alternatives as we could think of, finding agreement

the best education possible. To achieve this, I want to emphasize the critical roles of parents, guardians and family members in student success. The board of directors and I view the education of students as a partnership among school, parents and community. Please accept our invitation to visit your school and get to know the teachers and prin-

Now that we have withdrawn our troops from Iraq and soon from Afghanistan, we can look back and see what we accomplished. So far, 6,382 soldiers killed and 49,214 wounded. We continue to spend billions of dollars rebuilding the infrastructure we helped to demolish. The cost of the two wars is approximately one trillion dollars. Not a very impressive outcome. We are at a turning point where we have to look back to the future. Past warfares are becoming outdated. For example. We don’t need 1.4 million ground troops since the only countries that can invade us by land are Canada and Mexico. We need a smaller and smarter defense system to [ more LETTERS page 7 ]

They agreed to support a levy for the most pressing needs while continuing the discussion with the city about long-term funding options for future road maintenance. Fortunately, four council members voted down a B&O drafted the day of the vote. Some council members were seeing the 50-page proposal for the first time. These four aren’t puppets of the Chamber of Commerce. They simply, and fairly, didn’t want to impose a B&O without first listening to our local businesses.

I agree with many points made by my friend in her opinion piece. I agree both citizens committees recommended the levy. However, I disagree that the Parks committee asked that the levy go forward only if accompanied by imposition of a B&O tax. Yes, we recommended the council consider a B&O to help finance future road maintenance projects but we didn’t recommend that it was necessary to go forward with the levy. Our council has voted to address it by the end of this year, after further discussion with everyone involved – businesses and residents.

It’s a complicated equation as Kent businesses range from giant warehouses and their high volume of heavy trucks to the corner espresso shack – and everything in between. I also agree our roads will need more help. But I disagree the funding burden will be unduly placed on residents. Only a future vote of the people could do that.

Kent Police will sponsor another National Prescription Drug Take Back Day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 29. The collection site will be in front of the Kent Police Station, 220 Fourth Ave. S. The goal of the program is to provide a safe and secure environment for community members to turn in unused, expired or otherwise unneeded medications. The federal Drug Enforcement Administration spearheads the nationwide effort to safely return prescription drugs. While more than 2.1 million teens report abusing prescription drugs, the elderly are also vulnerable to prescription misuse as they are prescribed more medications than their younger counterparts, according to a Kent Police media release. While most people take prescription medications responsibly, 48 million people have reported using prescription drugs for non-medical reasons. This represents nearly 20 percent of the

The first step after a neighborhood meeting is to look at steps to combat speeding. Vehicles travel as much as 5 to 8 mph over the posted 25 mph speed limit along Southeast 223rd Drive, according to city studies. That doesn’t meet the city’s typical threshold of 10 mph over the speed limit in order to get a physical device such as a speed bump or traffic circle. But the 10 mph number isn’t a

Kent annexed the Panther Lake area in 2010. “We’ve needed speed bumps for a very long time,� Bennum said about failures by King County to solve the problem. “We’ll pay for it if we need to. We need something done. And don’t approve it and say it’ll be 10 years before we get it. We need it immediately.� A proposal for speed humps, traffic circle, or some other traffic calming device is taken back to the council for approval, Bieren said in an email. The funds come out of the city’s general fund.

going to address. I look forward to a solution and the next steps.� The issue is expected to be back on the Public Works Committee agenda in the next month or so with possible answers about what measures could be taken to slow vehicles. City transportation officials already have met with another group of Panther Lake residents for plans to install a traffic circle at the intersection of Southeast 224th Street and 129th Place Southeast in an effort to slow traffic. “Traffic circles are islands placed in the middle of an intersection,� Bieren said in an email. “They force traffic to slow down and work their way through the intersection.� Bieren said traffic circles are much smaller than a roundabout, such as the one at Southeast 256th Street and 164th Avenue Southeast in Covington. Traffic circles can cost from $15,000 to $35,000, said Rob Knutsen, a city engineering technician. Permanent radar speed signs, another possible option that shows drivers how fast they are going, cost $10,000 to $15,000.

“I don’t think what the fans want is any different than what we want as a team,” Farwell said. “We want to be legitimate contenders in our own division. We want to legitimately have a chance to win every night and be there to compete in the end.” To do so, the T-Birds added size, skill and grit. Size? Try defensemen Evan Wardley (6-foot-4), Jared Hauf (6-6), rookie Kevin Wolf (6-6) and Taylor Green (6-7). Skill? Quick right-winger Branden Troock – who was selected in the fifth round, 134th overall, by the Dallas Stars in the 2012 NHL Draft – could be a dominating player. Defenseman Shea Theodore, a talented player and the team’s returning assists leader, won a gold medal with Team Canada at the U-18 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament in August. Grit? Wardley, Theodore and Jerret Smith join Jesse Forsberg, who was acquired

from Prince George for center Colin Jacobs in early August, as enforcers on defense. Forsberg, a 19-yearold from Saskatchewan, brings leadership and a certain edge to his game. “He gives us more experienced. He’s been a captain and he plays tough, and that always helps the other guys,” Farwell said of Forsberg, a physical, two-way defenseman. “He will really step in and give us a presence on the back (line).” Forsberg is showing the way. “I play with a lot of passion and love open ice hits,” Forsberg recently told seattlethunderbirds.com. “I am a mobile skater with a good first pass, and I am not afraid to drop the gloves. I hate to lose.” Offensively, the T-Birds will rely on the continued improvement of Troock and Luke Lockhart. Troock had 14 goals and 12 assists last season. Lockhart was second on the team in goals with 16 and second on the

team in points with 37. Connor Honey, who joined the team in midseason, finished strong. Right wing Seth Swenson, acquired at the trade deadline from Portland, had 17 points in 34 games with the T-Birds. Center Justin Hickman looks to improve on his 12 goals and 10 assists for last year. Left wing Riley Sheen, acquired from Medicine Hat for right wing Jacob Doty, is among the newcomers.

Young guns Farwell is excited about the potential of the team’s top imports. Left wing Alexander Delnov, an 18-year-old from Moscow, Russia, was a fourth round pick of the Florida Panthers in the 2012 NHL Draft. Center Roberts Lipsbergs, 18, represented Latvia in the recent world games. More goals are a priority but not at the expense of defense, Farwell said.

“We didn’t score easily but I think we’re going to have more balance,” he said. “The guys we have back are more mature and stronger and create more. And we added more skill up front. We have three lines that can score and four that can play regularly.” A big question for Seattle is between the pipes. Goalie Calvin Pickard, the T-Birds’ career saves record holder, has moved on to the American Hockey League in hopes of working his way up to the NHL’s Colorado Avalanche. Goalie Brandon Glover, acquired from Calgary for a third-round bantam pick, is the next, experienced man up. “We’ve got to improve. We know that,” Farwell said. “Last season was Steve’s first year and I think he was a little disappointed in the results, but he laid some groundwork. Everyone, coaching staff, players, we’re feeling we have to take a step forward.”

An assessment of the personalities of over 200 centenarians shows that extroverts tend to live longer. What makes this study so significant is that it focused on a small subset population that is genetically very similar. Previous studies of these people showed that they have genetic reasons that help explain their longevity, such as genes related to cellular repair mechanisms. In addition, researchers speculated that there may also be some underlying genetic mechanisms that encourage certain personality traits that may give rise to longevity. Such proved to be the case when researchers found that the most easygoing, optimistic, engaged, and extroverted individuals tended to live the longest. This long-lived group laughed easily and expressed their emotions openly. PARKSIDE RETIREMENT COMMUNITY is pleased to present you with interesting and informative topics regarding seniors.

Despite the futility, the T-Birds remain popular on home ice. Attendance remains strong, having increased to an average of 4,206 fans last season, about the total the team attracted when it occupied Seattle’s KeyArena, its home for 32 years. Faced with an uncertain future at the Key, the T-Birds signed a 30-year lease with Kent to become the chief tenant of the 6,500-seat arena in 2009. It’s been a good fit, city and team officials say, despite a wobbly economy. The arena hasn’t been able to generate nearly enough business to keep it from losing money in each of its three years of existence. Nevertheless, the T-Birds look to shed the blues behind a retooled lineup, new attitude and sharper focus behind second-year coach Steve Konowalchuk. “We have a good group that’s focused on the right things and understanding what Steve wants. And I think we really improved our skill level,” Farwell said. “We’re excited about the potential of our team.” Farwell acknowledges the team must improve to soothe impatient fans.

junior ranks. Putting a consistent winner on the ice is another. Lately, the Thunderbirds have struggled in that department. Lacking scoring punch, last season’s T-Birds toiled in the rink, posting a losing record and missing the WHL playoffs for the third consecutive year. All of which is uncommon for an organization accustomed to being a contender. Farwell hopes to change that this season. An infusion of new faces – coupled with a maturing and deeper roster – could bring the T-Birds back to respectability as the puck drops on the 72-game regular season Friday night at Portland. The I-5 rivalry returns to the ShoWare Center on Saturday to open the TBirds’ home slate. Face-off is 7:05 p.m. “I like what I’m seeing in Seattle right now,” said Mike Johnston, who orchestrated a revival as general manager and coach in Portland. “They’re like we were a few years ago. There’s always going to be a transition time where you have a few lean years. I think they are starting to turn the corner there, and I see some positive signs this year.”

sugarcane. Both are present in countless foods and beverages Americans consume every day, and some experts believe there is a strong connection between these sweeteners and the current obesity crisis. In fact, studies have linked the consumption of large amounts of added sweeteners to widespread illnesses, including obesity, diabetes, heart disease and dental problems. The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends an upper limit of 100 calories for women (about 6 teaspoons) and 150 calories for men (about 9 teaspoons) from added sugar per day.

Diabetes and Virgin Coconut Oil Coconut Oil helps stabilize blood glucose levels and aids in shedding excess body weight. Many studies have shown low-fat diets to be effective in controlling diabetes. Monounsaturated fats, such as olive oil, doesn’t seem to adversely affect diabetes and so are allowed in moderation, but because all fats, including olive oil, are high in calories, they are discouraged. There is one fat, that diabetics can eat without fear. That fat is coconut oil. Not only does it not contribute to diabetes, but it helps regulate blood sugar, thus lessening the effects of the disease. Coconut oil puts less of a demand on the enzyme production of the pancreas. This lessens the stress on the pancreas during mealtime, when insulin is produced most heavily, thus allowing the organ to function more efficiently. Coconut oil raises metabolic rate, causing the body to burn up more calories and thus promote weight loss. Yes, you can actually lose excess weight by adding coconut oil to your diet. If you are a diabetic or borderline diabetic, consumption of most fats should be avoided. Coconut oil, on the other hand, is different. Because it helps stabilize blood glucose levels and aids in shedding excess body weight, it is probably the only oil a diabetic should eat.

That high sugar consumption, whatever the source may be, can be detrimental to people’s health is not disputed, not even by the respective industries. In a public statement referring to the lawsuit, the CRA says that “vilifying one kind of added sugar (in this case, HFCS) will not reduce American’s waistlines. Reducing all added sugars and reducing calorie intake in general will.� The real issue is, the statement continues, that “Americans should reduce their consumption of all added sugars and calories in general.� Considering that sweeteners in all forms are added to so many food products, including those that don’t necessarily taste sweet, it is hard to see how consumers could control their intake on their own. The question is not whether sweeteners are “nutritionally equivalent� and “indistinguishable once they are absorbed in the blood stream,� as the CRA statement claims, but how consumers can be protected from potential harm to their health and be helped to make better choices.

Green River to go tobacco free on Jan. 1 Green River Community College will become the ninth Washington college campus to go 100 percent smoke-free when a ban on tobacco use goes into effect on Jan. 1. Green River President Eileen Ely announced the new policy today during Opening Day, a campus event for returning faculty and college staff. The president approved the college’s tobacco use policy at the Sept. 4 staff meeting and will implement the policy beginning Jan. 1. “Having a tobaccofree campus will provide students a healthier place to study and employees a healthier place to work,� Ely said. Non-compliance with the designated smoking areas and the constant littering on campus indicated it was time for a change, Ely said. The college, which allows smoking and other tobacco use in designated areas, has

Whether it’s HFCS or added sugar, the fact that they are almost ubiquitous ingredients in our highly processed food and drink supply leaves consumers without much chance to improve their diet. And besides, are we really to believe that food manufacturers whose profitability depends on ever-increasing sales are serious about encouraging the public to buy fewer of their products? If that was the case, why do they keep spending billions of dollars in advertising, including to children? What’s at stake here is consumer spending – not health concerns. The damages that are being claimed are price erosion and lost profits – not damages done to people’s nutritional and physical well-being from products that may be associated with some of the most widespread health problems we are confronted with today.

Many Washington state campuses have some form of no-smoking rule or are in the process of adopting one. More than 70 percent of students participating in the 2011 campus elections voted in favor of a smoking ban. The total ban policy received 64 percent favorable comments earlier this year.

A group of food companies has filed a lawsuit against the Sugar Association, a trade group representing the sugar industry, for making false claims in advertising that allegedly caused loss of profit and other damages. Their action comes on the heels of an earlier complaint issued by the sugar industry against makers and users of high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) for saying that their product was essentially identical to sugar and should be marketed as such. Last year, the Corn Refiners Association (CRA) had asked the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to change the name HFCS to “corn sugar,� a request that was ultimately rejected. HFCS is derived from corn and is cheaper to produce than natural sugar made from sugar beets and

Texas Hippie Coalition brings southern rock to ShoWare Ask Big Daddy Ritch for a quick explanation of Texas Hippie Coalition’s sound and he delivers straight from the hip. “It’s like ZZ Top and Pantera had a child and gave it to Johnny Cash to raise,” Ritch said. “It’s like a heathen child.” On Sept. 27 Ritch, and Texas Hippie Coalition (THC), roll into Kent’s Showare Center with Lynyrd Skynryd and Shooter Jennings to deliver a night of southern fried rock and roll served up with a helping of pure outlaw country and topped off with THC’s own brand of Red Dirt Metal. “There is Red Dirt Country down in this area,” said Ritch, who hails from North Texas. “Texas radio has their own chart, called Red Dirt Country. I was just hangin with those country guys (guys Billy Joe Shaver, David Allan Coe, Stony

LaRue, Cross Canadian Ragweed) and after hearing our music, that storytelling style similar to Red Dirt Country, they just dubbed us Red Dirt Metal. “We know those guys are proud to be Red Dirt Country and they gave us that badge of Red Dirt Metal and we’re going to where that proudly and let everybody know,” he added. That pride is evident on the band’s third album “Peacemaker,” which features 12 tracks of whiskeysodden, Texas power grooves, garnished with a nod to the storytelling roots of Ritch’s influences. “Growing up in Texas, we just listened to Johnny Cash, Waylon and Willie,” Ritch said. “That was my daddy’s style of music. But my daddy also turned me on to Bob Seger, Steve Miller and stuff like that. And he was always keeping me up on the outlaw’s, stuff like Lynyrd Skynryd,

Molly Hatchet, ZZ Top, .38 Special, those great bands. I just grew up with them. Then you get on your own and discover bands like Van Halen, Mötley Crüe, Cinderella and that’s where the party style atmosphere came from. Then I discovered

The event is 4:30-5 p.m. at Bright Horizons at Centerpoint, 20809 72nd Ave. S, Kent. Bright Horizons will accept new and gently used books to support the Bright Horizons Foundation for children; a non-profit organization created to brighten the lives of children, youth, and families in crisis. Participants will get to read a book, engage in fun activities and share the importance of developing a love of reading.

Of course they were all from good bands so it was kind of hard to get them over here to do something different. But I just threatened to whup ‘em and they went ahead and jumped on board.� Ritch said the lineup solidified a couple of years ago with the addition of drummer Timmy “The Hit-

Time to treat your lawn as you prepare for fall 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

Marianne Binetti

The third week of September is when the shorter days and cooler nights awaken any summer dormant lawn. If you allowed your lawn to â&#x20AC;&#x153;go goldenâ&#x20AC;? or lie dormant without extra water this summer, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to celebrate your lower water bill with a good long drink â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for the grass. After a few days of heavy rain, invest in

tilling up the turf â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but you must remove plugs of old soil so the new soil can get down to those roots. 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 topsoil then use a high quality grass seed blend mixed for the Pacific Northwest. Now just watch the rains return and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have a fresh start with your old lawn.

Q. 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 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 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 A.

webs you observed is one hot tip towards answering your burning question and solving this case but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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 then 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 leaf less 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.

Q. 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 A. Bad news for the heavenly hellebore. These tough perennials arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t so tough once you get down to their roots â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they hate to be di-

vided. If you must downsize this winter blooming plant, remove the entire clump in August or September (this week would be perfect) and hose off the roots. Then use a sharp knife or spade 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 left over 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 canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just slice off a side section and hope the mother plant will go on to do great things. Get down and dirty and lift the entire clump out of the ground so you can be sure that each new division gets a bit of the mother plant along with the young growth around the edge.

has found a home and a successful business in Kent. He opened the Blanc â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;N Schwartz Salon on East Meeker Street in October 2009, following a severalyear hiatus. It has been going strong ever since. Schwartz owned the Men/Women Salon and Damn Dog Espresso in Ballard, a pair of shops located across the street from each other near where the Seattle Monorail was scheduled to terminate. His properties were on the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eminent domain list and after years of fighting and attending meeting after meeting, Schwartz reluctantly sold. Schwartz took a sales position in the interim, but was laid off when the economy started to go south in 2008. After working for a beauty-supply company, he decided it was time to get back in the business. In the interim, Schwartz bought a house in the Panther Lake area and discovered the charm of downtown Kent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love downtown Kent,â&#x20AC;? he said, adding that it reminds him of the artsy atmosphere of the Fremont and Greenwood areas of Seattle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just like the atmosphere of the small businesses.â&#x20AC;? Schwartz continues to attract good business. One satisfied customer said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The store is cute and welcoming. The staff was friendly and attentive. And my haircut was good at a great price. I will be back for my next appointment.â&#x20AC;? Schwartz and his staff provide a â&#x20AC;&#x153;feel-good, midpriced salon spot where people can be pampered.â&#x20AC;? Blanc â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;N Schwartz is at 207 E. Meeker St., between South Railroad Avenue and South 2nd Avenue. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call 253-856-1355.

Kent-based OMAX Corporation, a leader in the design and manufacture of advanced abrasive waterjet machines and accessories, recently was named to Inc. Magazineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 500|5000 list of fastest-growing private companies in America. It marks the second time OMAX has earned a spot on the coveted list, which is developed annually by Inc. to recognize and celebrate the success of growing companies. On this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s list, OMAX Corporation ranks 202nd as the fastest growing company in the manufacturing industry and 4,511th

overall, having experienced 21-percent business growth between 2008 and 2011. During the same time period, the company added 44 jobs and now employs 240 individuals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is an extreme honor for us to once again be recognized as one of the fastest-growing private companies in America,â&#x20AC;? said Dr. John Cheung, CEO of OMAX Corporation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;OMAXâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s growth stems from our teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard work and dedication to continuously develop and support new and improved abrasive waterjet technologies that meet the diverse and ever-changing needs of manufacturers worldwide.â&#x20AC;?

Q. What are the beautiful trees full of red and orange berries that I see in some neighborhoods? The foliage is rather blue-gray in color and ferny. The berries are just beautiful in the fall. P., Email A. Mountain Ash or Sorbus are large streets

Given the stagnant economic environment between 2008 and 2011, it is a notable achievement for all of the companies that made the 2012 Inc. 500|5000 list. In addition to achieving impressive growth rates, companies named to the list have created more than 400,000 jobs in the past three years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now, more than ever, we depend on Inc. 500/5000 companies to spur innovation, provide jobs, and drive the economy forward. Growth companies, not large corporations, are where the action is,â&#x20AC;? said Inc. Editor Eric Schurenberg.

Four Corner Square undergoes redevelopment Kite Realty Groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Four Corner Square, a neighborhood shopping center on the northwest corner of Kent Kangley Road and Maple Valley Black Diamond Road in Maple Valley, is undergoing a phased redevelopment and expansion. The first phase of the project includes an addition to the north side of the existing building that will expand the center from 44,000 square feet to 109,000 square feet. It will include a 35,000-square-foot Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Home and Garden, an 18,200-square-foot Grocery Outlet and an additional 11,000 square feet of retail space. Walgreens also will join the retail mix as will multiple out-parcels along Maple Valley Black Diamond Road. Phase II of the redevelopment includes a renovation of the existing center, including updated facades and lighting, landscape and parking lot repairs that will add new life to this center.

Auburn crushes Kentridge in SPSL North

FORMER KENTRIDGE PLAYER HAHNEMANN RETURNS TO SOUNDERS The Seattle Sounders FC have acquired goalkeeper Marcus Hahnemann with the No. 1 pick in the Major League Soccer allocation draft. Hahnemann, 40, returns to the MLS after 13 years playing in the English Premiere League. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is where I started my career and I wanted to finish here,â&#x20AC;? Hahnemann said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always dreamed would happen in Seattle, and what I always wanted when I was here.â&#x20AC;? Hahnemann, who attended and played soccer at Kentridge High School before transferring to Newport for his senior year, was a three-time All-American at Seattle Pacific University and helped lead the Falcons to the Division II national championship in 1993. Hahnemann began his professional career with the Soundersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; A-League team in 1994.

Auburn took advantage of eight Kentridge turnovers to post a 45-0 South Puget Sound League North 4A football win at Auburn Memorial Stadium. Auburn (2-1 league, 2-1 overall) scored first on Demontra McNeallyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 55-yard touchdown with 4 minutes, 16 seconds left in the first quarter of last Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game. McNeally added a 10-yard touchdown run in the third quarter. On Kentridgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (1-1, 1-2) next possession, Auburn senior Harold Lee caught a pass by quarterback Travis McGuire, returning it 30 yards and setting up junior quarterback Brier Atkinsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1-yard touchdown. Atkinson also scored in the second quarter on a 5-yard run. Lee notched the Trojansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; next touchdown, returning a punt to the end zone from 78 yards out. Fullback Jacob Waldoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s run in the second quarter put the score at 35-0 at the half.

Senior Axel Barajas kicked a 24-yard field goal in the third quarter. The Trojans travel to Tahoma (2-0, 2-1) at 7 p.m. Friday. Kentridge hosts Mount Rainier at 7 p.m. Saturday.

Raiders beat K-M The Thomas Jefferson Raiders picked up their first win of the season beating the Kent-Meridian Royals, 27-24 last Friday at Federal Way Memorial Stadium. The Raiders (1-2) tallied 21 points in the fourth quarter to overcome a 17-6 lead by Kent-Meridian, who beat the defending SPSL North champion Kentlake Falcons the previous week. Jefferson got on the scoreboard first with a 7-yard touchdown run by Shane Seumae. But KentMeridian answered back by scoring the next 17 points. The Raiders then got a pair of 28-yard touchdown passes from Niko Delacruz. The first was to McKay Owsley and the second was to Phillip Cuadros.

Improvements to the road course and drag strip surfaces at Pacific Raceways in Kent are scheduled to begin this winter, according to track officials. The scheduled repaving is part of a continual process to upgrade the facility, said Jason Fiorito, raceways president. Work is scheduled for February to repave sections of the historic 2.25-mile road course. Turns 7 through 9 will receive new asphalt, Fiorito said, who added that the problem with standing water during rain events on Turn 10 – where the road course joins the drag strip – also will be addressed. The quarter-mile drag strip, which hosts the O’Reilly Auto Parts NHRA Northwest Nationals in early August, is a combination of concrete for the first half of the track and asphalt for the final 660 feet and the shutdown area. Fiorito said the asphalt will be repaved through the portion of the shutdown area that encompasses the road course Turn 10. Raceways crews poured new concrete for the first 300 feet of the drag strip last spring. In addition to the repav-

SOVREN is among the many car clubs that visit Pacific Raceways each year. The road course, which is scheduled for repaving and other improvements, operates throughout the year. SHAWN SKAGER, Auburn Reporter ing project, Fiorito said the raceways will make improvements to the road course run-off areas to ensure better safety for participants. The facility currently hosts a number of racing series such as SOVREN, SCCA, IRDC and the Washington Motorcycle Road Racing Association as well as a number of car clubs, motorcycle groups

and the ProFormance Racing School. The road course operates 12 months a year. Improvements also will aid the raceway in attracting new racing series to the mile course that has a history of hosting national events. Fiorito has his sights set on restoring road racing prestige to the Kent track that his family has owned

since it was built in 1960. Discussions have begun with national professional sanctioning bodies about the return of professional road racing to the Northwest. “We have a tremendous asset that will be improved to benefit the racing community, fans and our regional economy,” Fiorito said.
