Inaugural Milotte Wildlife Film Festival ready for its close-up By Brian Beckley


s a child growing up in Bonney Lake in the middle of the 20th Century, the rest of the world was so far away, but for Councilman Mark Hamilton, one Sunday evening television program sometimes provided a window to the rest of the world. “As a kid I looked forward to every Sunday watch Disney,” he said, recalling the old “Wonderful World of Disney” program. “And every once and a while they’d have these nature films.” Hamilton said at the time - pre-Animal Planet or Discovery Channel - there was nothing else like it on TV and no other place to see an actual

African lion hunting down game. “I’d never seen anything like that,” he said Friday. “It just opened me up to a little bit about wild life.” But little did he know that the filmmakers responsible for many of the nature shows he loved lived right in his hometown. Then, one day his mother came home from an art class and told him about a man in her class named Alfred Milotte who made nature films for Disney. “I put two and two together and realized they were the Milottes talked about by Walt,” Hamilton remembered.

With Mayor Neil Johnson poised to name Dana Powers as the city’s next official chief of police, the city council is taking up the issue of whether the chief should have civil service protection, like the rest of the police force, or be completely at will, like other department heads. Presently the chief’s position is not part of the civil service system, which means the chief serves at the pleasure of the mayor and can be fired when he or she sees fit. While Johnson favors the change to

Cougar attacked horse in Buckley Incident occured before last week’s sighting near school Daniel Nash Staff Writer

Another report has come in on the cougar seen in Bonney Lake Oct. 5. Angie Camp, a resident of unincorporated Pierce County near Maris Farms, reported an attack on her six-year-old thoroughbred Sept. 25, predating the October sighting. It is not known if both sightings were of the same animal. Camp’s daughter called her in the morning to tell her she had seen a large animal escaping into the woods. Camp initially wrote it off as a trick of the eye and imagination; she changed her mind when she came home. “Sure enough, our horse had been hurt,” she said. “He had claw marks on his belly, his flank and (the flesh of) his chest had been opened up.” She called in a vet and the Department of Fish and Wildlife, who told her the injuries were consistent with what could be caused by a 2- to 3-year-old cougar. Cougars are native to Washington and there are an estimated 2,000 to 2,500 in the state, according to the Department of Fish and Wildlife. An adult male will claim a home range of 50-squaremiles to 150-square-miles. Females tend to group closely to their mothers’ territory, while males become independent at a young age.

Chief FROM A1 offer the next chief more job security, the council is almost evenly split on the move. Johnson proposed the change at the request of Powers, who is worried about the possibility of taking the job and then facing a new mayor in a few years who may or may not want to keep her on. Calling the police “the most important department in the city,” Johnson said he did not want to put the city in jeopardy because a new mayor wants to put their stamp on the office. “I just want to make sure that doesn’t happen,” Johnson said. Unlike “at will” employees, an employee covered by civil service has certain job protections, particularly that the employee may only be removed, suspended or fired “for cause” and then only after a written accusation. Civil service employees may then submit a request from the civil service commission for an investigation to determine if the employment action was “for just cause.” Johnson said the change may hamstring a future mayor to a previous admin-

Thank You

istration’s chief, but there is still a process to remove the person and he feels this would be the best way to prevent someone from “playing politics” with the chief of police. “I understand both sides,” he said. Johnson, in fact, was on the council when the change was made less than 10 years ago to remove the chief’s position from civil service and make it at-will. The opposition to the move feels that any incoming mayor must be able to put their stamp on city departments and that a mayor who makes a bad decision will be held accountable by voters, instead of the city’s appointed civil service commission. “I believe the people voted for a mayor to be a single point of accountability,” Deputy Mayor Dan Swatman said. “There can only be one conductor of an orchestra.” Calling it an “age-old debate,” Swatman was quick to say his view on the issue had nothing to do with Powers, whom he

called an “outstanding candidate.” “She’ll make an outstanding police chief,” he said. But the chief ’s position is one that has a high potential for scrutiny and Swatman said the one person accountable for those decisions is the elected mayor. “They elected a mayor for a particular reason,” he said. “You want that one person to be accountable.” Councilmember Mark Hamilton, who also chair’s the council’s Public Safety Committee, said he supports the change because the police chief is unlike another department head in the city. “It’s one of those position in which the department head … needs a little bit of a buffer when it comes to discipline from the mayor,” he said. “the chief is a unique position.” Hamilton said as a law enforcement official, the chief takes an oath promising to uphold the Constitution and all state and local laws, unlike all other department heads.

Hamilton said keeping the the chief under the auspices of civil service means a mayor can only fire a police chief for “the right reasons,” as opposed to political or personal reasons. “Civil service does not lock a person in to not being disciplined or not being fired, it just says you have to go through a process,” he said. Swatman said he would support an employment contract with the incoming chief as a way to offer her job security, much like the mayor and council did with the city administrator, something Johnson said he would consider, though he said Powers specifically requested civil service protection. The council discussed the matter during the Oct. 2 council workshop. At that time, the council seemed to be split 3-3, with one undecided. During the Oct. 9 regular council meeting, the council voted to remove the item from the agenda for further discussion.

Don’t let your in-law suite be ‘extra-legal’ Perhaps thanks to a struggling economy and an unpredictable stock market that has resulted in many retirement nest eggs being decimated, more and more adult children are welcoming their aging parents into their homes. Such living situations have led to a growth in in-law suites. In fact, in 2010 the National Association of Home Builders found that 62 percent of builders surveyed were working on home modifications related to aging. In-law suites are often created by converting a room in the house, such as the basement or even a garage, into a livable suite. Such suites can benefit

elderly relatives who might have been dealt an unforeseen financial blow. But inlaw suites can also benefit younger homeowners who want to see their parents more. In addition, when older men and women move in with their adult children, they can provide some necessary relief from the escalating cost of daycare. But before building an in-law suite in their home, homeowners might want to heed the following tips. * Be certain it is legal. Making changes to your home may require a permit, particularly if your in-law suite will be an entirely new addition to your property and not just a strict room

remodel. Contact your local zoning board to ensure the project is within your rights as a homeowner. * Consider the health of your in-laws when making plans. Many in-law suites are occupied by aging relatives who might not be able to get up and down stairs as easily as they used to. That makes accessibility of the suite a top priority. Typically, it’s best to locate in-law suites on the first floor, so relatives won’t find it difficult to get in and out of the suite. * Don’t overlook privacy. Just because your parents or in-laws will be moving in doesn’t mean they don’t still value their privacy. Chances are your relatives

South Africa still feeling effects of Aparthied Crime and violence are notoriously high in South Africa. If you drive around just about anywhere you will see high walls with barbed or concertina wire encircling nearly every middle- or upper-class home. Often, broken glass or metal spikes stick out of the tops of these walls to discourage thieves from climbing over. As I saw these and other safety precautions during my recent trip to South Africa, it caused me to ponder why the crime rate is so high there. I came to the conclusion that the effects of injustice take a long time to heal. Part of the reason for the high crime is the residual anger at the injustice perpetrated by the whites against the blacks during the time of apartheid. Whites got all the best land and the best jobs while blacks had to carry internal passports called pass cards to be able to move around their own country. Wealth was unequally distributed in favor of the white minority. Blacks were forcibly moved to tribal homelands (think reservations) that were the least-productive land. Eighteen years have passed since the end of apartheid in 1994. Since that time the black majority (making up 79 percent of the South African

Politics in Focus Rich Elfers, Columnist

population) has ruled this nation of 50.6 million people. It seems that the rebellion against apartheid created a deep distrust and disrespect of government and its leaders, no matter what their color. In some ways the new ruling black elite are little better than the whites. They have taken advantage of their power to gain wealth for themselves without really helping the many poor blacks. Additionally, many blacks seem to have a sense of entitlement that they should live at a lifestyle equal to the whites without having to work for that better lifestyle. While I was in South Africa, there was a wildcat (non-union backed) strike at the Marikana platinum mine northwest of Johannesburg. Rioting black miners attacked police, some with guns. Police returned fire. Forty-

six were killed in the violence, including some police, also black. Strikers had lost confidence in their blackrun union and had struck for higher wages of 22 percent. They eventually got their demands in order to end the strike and the rioting. This is an example of the residual effects of apartheid. Mine owners make large salaries at the expense of their workers. Black elites who run the unions ignore the needs of the majority of the workers and worker frustration and impatience at the inability to live a comfortable life style result in riots and violence. Another reason for the high crime rate relates to the difficulty of getting a good education. Many teachers aren’t properly trained in the black areas. Among the black schools I visited there, it seemed like teachers and administrators found the smallest excuses to close schools. These attitudes about learning are mirrored in the students they teach. Unemployment is extremely high, about 25 percent. Poor black youth see the abundance and prosperity of the whites and envy their wealth. Since

education does not provide much of an avenue to achieve that wealth, robbery and violence are the alternatives. Also, due to the separation of husbands and fathers from their families due to apartheid, and the loss of many parents due to the AIDS epidemic, the family structure of many poor blacks is fragmented. A lack of respect for authority of parents, especially fathers, who are often absent, allows bored teens to get involved in crime. There have been improvements, though. I visited the black community of Loskop in KwaZulu-Natal where my daughter, Betsy Elfers Meyer, 33, has worked among the poor Amangwe Zulus for the past eight and a half years. She set up a nonprofit organization called Thembalethu ( to support homebased care workers. The 26 women she supports care for 352 AIDS patients and orphans whose parents have died of AIDS. When I first visited her six years ago, most of the people in this poor community had no electricity. Today most do. I was pleased to see power lines going into the mud and cinderblock homes. Most still do not have running water or plumbing. For good reason this area has been described as one of the poorest areas in South Africa. Ironically, this part of the Drakensberg Mountains is famous as a recreation and vacation area for prosperous whites from neighboring cities. There are beautiful homes and prosperous white farms. The contrast is stark. South Africa has a high crime rate and violence is common. Some of the reasons for it lie with the injustice perpetrated by the white minority during the apartheid era. Some of it is due to lack of opportunity and some to a skewed sense of entitlement. Whatever the reasons, healing the effects of injustice seems to takes a long time.

Self-exams can detect health risk By Dr. Margaret Mercado For The Courier-Herald

Did you know breast lumps are often discovered by women themselves? Here is a simple, seven-step routine for Dr. Margaret Mercado breast self-examination: 1. While standing in front of a mirror, with your hands on your hips, visually examine your breasts. Look for lumps, changes in size, color, shape or contour. 2. Repeat this portion of the examina-

tion with your hands behind your head. 3. Next, press each nipple, checking for discharge. 4. Lie down with a pillow under your left shoulder and place your left hand under your head. With the fingers of your right hand flattened and together, press the top portion of the left breast. Using circular motions, feel for lumps and thickening. In other words, think of your breast as the face of a clock. With the top of the breast as 12 o’clock, move around the outer portion of the breast clockwise. Once you have returned to 12 o’clock, move the fingers closer to the nipple and repeat. 5. Once you have checked the entire surface of the left breast, move the pillow and examine your right breast. 6. Using the same small, circular motions, examine the area adjacent to your breasts in the armpit. Seventy-five percent of breast cancer occurs under the nippleareola region or in the upper, outer portion of the breast near the armpit, so make sure you examine these areas thoroughly. 7. If you detect thickening, swelling or a lump, contact your doctor immediately.

Homemade peanut butter a healthy snack Peanut butter is not only a staple of children’s lunches, but it also is a healthy food. While commercially made peanut butter is popular, foodies can also make their own homemade peanut butter. Rich in fiber and protein, peanut butter makes a healthy addition to any diet. Fiber helps maintain a healthy colon and reduce bad cholesterol in the blood and also may help to regulate blood glucose levels, while possibly reducing an individual’s risk of developing colorectal cancer. Individuals looking to eat high protein foods can choose peanut butter as a good protein source that can help the body feel full longer. Peanut butter sometimes gets a bad rap because of the amount of fat per tablespoon of the food. While a serving of peanut but-

ter is roughly 188 calories and may have 16 grams of fat, the fat is monosaturated, meaning it is heart-healthy. When enjoyed in moderation, peanut butter is healthy. There are several advantages to making your own peanut butter. One of the main reasons is you have complete control over the ingredients. Unlike store-bought varieties, your peanut butter will not contain extra additives, such as preservatives, sugar, salt and oils -- all of which can make commercial peanut butters less healthy. Taste is another factor in homemade peanut butter. Many people find the taste is more authentic in homemade peanut butter. Plus the saltiness, sweetness or roasted flavor can be customized based on preference.

this a “Honey, do you need a back rub conversation?” which attempts to disguise the real question? What we mean, is the real motivation to spend extra time with your wife or do you think she needs a nudge

Bonney Lake football tops Enumclaw 28-10 By Brian Beckley Staff Writer

The Bonney Lake Panthers kept the momentum from their homecoming victory going this weekend with a 28-10 win over the Enumclaw Hornets. Bonney Lake started a bit slow, allowing an Enumclaw field goal in the first quarter to make it 3-0 headed to the second, but the Panther air attack came to life before halftime. Quarterback Chris Brown hooked up with receiver Robert Jones on a pair of pass plays, from 10 and 42 yards out, both capped by kicks from Tyler John, to give the Panthers a 14-3 lead going into halftime. And Bonney Lake never looked back. Enumclaw struck first in the second half on a three-yard run by Cameron Strecker, but that was the last time they would see the endzone as the Panther defense held the line for the rest of the game. In the second half, Bonney Lake’s ground game came alive with E.J. Harris getting a touchdown in both the third and fourth quarters. Harris powered in a one-yard run in the third and then broke off a 36-yard touchdown in the fourth to seal the victory. John kicked the extra point for each. The win lifts Bonney Lake to an overall record of 3-4 with a 2-1 record in the South Puget Sound League 3A. The Panthers play at Lakes on Friday.

Shutout streak ends By Brian Beckley

Spartan spikers get two more

Staff Writer

BLHS Soccer

After a run of five consecutive shutouts, the Bonney Lake girls soccer team has now dropped two in a row with losses last week to Enumclaw and Auburn Mountain View. The streak came to an end Oct. 9 with a 1-0 loss to Enumclaw. Then, on Thursday, the Panthers fell 2-1 to the Lions. Auburn Mountain View got the scoring started early, but the Panthers

battled back on the foot of Andrea Bowman, unassisted. But it wasn’t enough as AMV’s Sophia Wagner scored her second goal of the night to give the Lions the victory. The loss drops Bonney Lake to 6-41, with a 4-2 league record. The Panthers were scheduled to play Decatur Tuesday at home and at Lakes Thursday.

of the city and the region to know more about former residents Alfred and Elma Milotte and their films, which earned the couple a total of six Academy Awards This Saturday marks the first Milotte Wildlife Film Festival, hosted by the Greater Bonney Lake Historical Society. The hope is for the festival to become an annual event where nature filmmakers can show their work. But this first year, all of the films being shown will be by the festival’s namesake couple. “This year is pretty much an introduction of the Milottes back to the community,” Hamilton said. Alfred and Elma Milotte moved to the Bonney Lake area in 1958, buying a large tract of land that had views to Mount Rainier in the East and Puget Sound to the west. The couple used to say their home was their “island in the sky” and the name stuck, though it has been reformed into the Sky Island neighborhood we know today. “The whole Sky Island development is basically the Milotte property,” Hamilton said. But prior to settling permanently on the Plateau, the Milottes had been all over the world, making nature films for Disney’s “True Life Adventures” highlighting animals from all around the world, from the seals in Alaska to lions in Africa

The inaugural Milotte Wildlife Film Festival is scheduled for 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Justice Center, 9002 Main St. E. The event is free and open to the public. For more information visit www. and “Nature’s Strangest Creatures” in Australia. This year, the Historical Society is showing three of the Milotte’s Oscar-winning films. First up will be “Seal Island,” the couple’s first collaboration with Disney. Also shown will be “Bear Country,” filmed in Yellowstone National Park and “Beaver Valley,” filmed in Montana. “They did all the cinematography,” Hamilton said. The festival runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Justice Center, 9002 Main St. E. and all three movies will be shown twice during the day. The event is free and open to the public. There will also be a costume contest for kids and representatives form the Relay for Life will be on hand selling popcorn as a fundraiser. For more information on the festival and the Milottes, visit www. Reach Brian Beckley at bbeckley@ or 360-825-2555 x5058.

The festival will show three Oscar Award winners for both the Milotte’s and the Disney Studios and they are “Seal Island”, “Bear Country” and “Beaver Valley”. The festival is FREE to everyone but donations will be gladly accepted. All children must be accompanied by a responsible adult. There will be a costume contest and prizes will be awarded, although rumor has it the judges have a soft spot for children, so most will be awarded something.

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. 

Washington an alpaca leader By Dennis Box Editor

It has become more and more common to spot some small, fleecy looking animals munching on grass in the fields around the Plateau. They are alpacas, sometimes known as a pasture poodle. Alpaca farms are popping up all over the Plateau. Some have a few and others have more than 50.

The Plateau has a growing number and Washington state may have the most Alpaca farms in the country. Susan Hanson, owner of Rainier Alpacas at 39702 218th Ave. SE outside of Enumclaw, raises alpacas for a living. She raises the animals for their fleece and has one of the top breeding programs in the area. Hanson, along with Donna Paschen, owner of Grapevine Farm Alpacas at 30128 SE 402nd St, Janet O’Meara

at 37213 West Lake Walker Dr. S.E and Rebecca Venn from Alpacas of Wintercreek at 3302 53rd Street SE near Lake Tapps, act as mentors for anyone interested in raising the camel cousins. According to the Alpacas of Wintercreek website alpacas were “domesticated by the Incas over 5000 years ago and are among the most

Fall colors coming to life on the mountain Warm sunny days, mild temperatures and cool nights are ushering in the fall colors at Mount Rainier for visitors to enjoy.

Boogie-woogie pianist to play benefit show Famed boogie-boogie pianist Bob Milne returns to Enumclaw for an Oct. 28 benefit concert. The 2 p.m. show is presented by Chalet Arts Showcase Theater as a fundraiser to help renovate the historic downtown theater. The goal of CAST is to bring a variety of performing arts to the Chalet

Theater throughout the year while movies continue to be shown. Milne’s concert schedule of 250 bookings a year clearly indicates his huge popularity and his performances stretch across the map. He has played before presidents and world leaders, including a performance in Japan and

ALPACAS FROM 14 ancient of the world’s domestic animals.” Found in their natural habitat of the Andes Mountains in southern Peru, Bolivia and Chile, alpacas have adapted to the Plateau remarkably well. Hanson said alpacas have three stomachs, making them very efficient animals. “They are easy on fences and are inexpensive to feed,” Hanson said. “I raise them, breed them, sheer them and teach people about them.” The milling of the fleece from alpacas is a growing industry in the state and on the Plateau according to Hanson. The fabric is used for socks, sweaters, scarves, gloves and hats. Clothing made from alpaca fleece is both warm and lightweight and includes everything from baby blankets to tuxedoes. Paschen said farmers are breeding for “finer and finer fleece.” Each farmer usually breeds for a certain color. Paschen raises gray and fawn colored alpacas, Hanson gray and O’Meara black. Silver, gray and white alpacas are very popular Hanson said. Alpacas mothers carry the babies for 11 months. Paschen said the four women throw pasture parties to introduce people to the alpacas and have some fun. O’Meara said she got into raising alpacas initially for the tax benefits, “and now I love the animals.”

before the Swiss parliament. He has toured the world on behalf of the U.S. Department of State that engages him in the role of “Musical Ambassador.” He was once filmed at the United States Library of Congress where he was given recognition as a “National Treasure.” Milne’s performances can be viewed on You Tube and at www.bobmilne. com. Admission to the Oct. 28 concert is $20. Tickets are available at the Enumclaw Chamber of Commerce, can be purchased online at and will be sold at the door. A discount is available for piano students attending with a teacher. For information call 253332-8924.

Bob Milne is no stranger to playing Enumclaw shows. He will be back in late October, this time putting on a benefit concert for a nonprofit group looking to turn the Chalet Theater into a center for the arts.

Many of the alpaca farmers enter national shows and Paschen said entering shows help validate a farmer’s breeding program. Susan Hanson said raising alpacas can be both profitable and a pleasure. Alpacas have helped Hanson’s 14-year-old son, Jack Hanson. She said her son is autistic and working with the alpacas each day is “very calming to him.” Jack Hanson said a mother alpaca rejected one of her babies and he came out each day and took care of the baby. “He’s like an alpaca whisperer,” Susan Hanson said. “He can always get them to come to him. They are great animals for kids.” Jack Hanson said he has spent six years coming out every day to the pasture to the alpacas and he believes it has helped him. “I’m autistic and I’m proud of it,” Jack Hanson said. “I think (alpacas) may help others.”

Did you know...? From the Alpacas of Wintercreek website: • Alpacas were domesticated by the Incas more than 5,000 years ago and are among the most ancient of the world’s domestic animals. Their natural habitat is the high altitude regions of the Antiplano, or Andes Mountains, in southern Peru, Bolivia and Chile. The alpaca’s ‘cashmere-like’ fleece was reserved only to make clothing for the imperial families of the Incas.

Don’t let Old Man Winter sneak up on you this year Fall is here and frost is slipping in to finish off any summer plants, but there is still time to add some color to container gardens and planting beds. Winter pansies, hardy mums, lateblooming asters and ornamental cabbage and kale are available now at garden centers for instant color. Buy large plants in gallon containers, place them on your porch and surround the plastic nursery pots with pumpkins and gourds. You will have an instant autumn display of color without even picking up a trowel. Your fall field goals for great yardage should include improving your own home playing field. If you haven’t yet added lime and a slow-release lawn food, this is the week to get into the game and score. If your lawn turned dry and brown this summer you can improve its ability

The Compleat Home Gardener Marianne Binetti Horticulturist

to hold moisture by aerating now and then raking a few inches of compostrich topsoil over the top. Topdressing a lawn like this will also help to level out any low spots to give the illusion of a more uniform surface after mowing. Dig in and investigate those brown areas of your lawn before winter sets in. It is often a large boulder or a chunk of cedar buried just below the surface of the soil that is causing a small area of the lawn to dry out quickly in the summer sun. If you hit a patch of clay or sand under the surface of the lawn, dig in compost to

improve any soil. Here are other fall field goals for lawns and gardens this month:

Cut peony foliage to the ground

This will help prevent fungal infections or black spots on the plants next spring.

Rake up fallen blueberries near shrubs

This prevents mummy berry, a fungus disease moving into our area that overwinters on fallen fruit.

Buy and plant spring-blooming bulbs

You’ll be able to look forward to early color all winter long. My favorite bulbs for low-maintenance color with many happy returns are winter-blooming snowdrops and the amazing deer-

, vole- and shade-resistant dwarf daffodils. Look for February Gold and Tête-àTête daffodils. They even bloom in the shade.

Harvest frostsensitive crops

Harvest green tomatoes, summer squash and other frost -sensitive crops from the vegetable garden. Overseed empty soil with a cover crop like legumes or vetch to keep down weeds. Then you can till this winter cover crop into the soil in early spring as a green manure.

Cover tenders with a tarp

Cover tender bulbs of canna and dahlias with a tarp and then a mulch to keep out the winter rain. It is the wet, not the cold, that kills these summer-blooming bulbs during our rainy winters.

Remove any stakes around young trees

New research confirms it is better not to stake young trees because letting them whip around in the wind forces them to grow more stabilizing roots. Sometimes you must put tree stakes around a young tree the first year to make it stand straight but after that, any staking does more harm than good.

Jail FROM 11 overage for the six,” Buckley Police Chief Jim Arsanto said to the council. Fife’s shortcoming—one shared by Puyallup—is its distance from Buckley. Councilman Bryan Howard pointed out that a single prisoner transport to Fife’s jail facility would merit a two-hour round trip. There are periods of the day in Buckley—typically at nighttime—in which only one patrol officer is on-shift, rendering a two-hour trip out of town untenable. That’s where the jails of Enumclaw and Puyallup come in. Both facilities will be used for on-call, first come-first serve inmate housing. Both have capacity to house female inmates.

Enumclaw Jail will be used for processing DUI arrests. The Enumclaw and Puyallup contracts are set to endure and renew annually, and the Fife contract is written to last until 2015 provided it isn’t terminated by Buckley or Fife at an earlier date. It is probable that these contracts are a stopover before Buckley signs a contract with SCORE Multijuridictional Misdemeanant Jail at an indeterminate future date, Arsanto said.

Fitness FROM 8 do that? Or perhaps your wife is worried that you will interfere with her goals or that she will feel too much pressure to perform to a set standard. Bruce: If your motivation is to spend time being active with your wife, consider having a conversation about what types of physical activity you might both find enjoyable. All runners should cross train. Maybe your wife would be open to hiking, biking, rowing or

dancing. Stephanie: If you truly want a running buddy and your wife is not interested, here are some factors to consider for selecting a running buddy: • Pace • Distance • When to work out • Where to work out • How often to work out Bruce: There are several ways your spouse can share your passion for running by:

• Being there at the finish line • Charting your weekly mileage • Traveling to race events together

Self-exams FROM 8 Most lumps are benign, but only your doctor can determine that for sure. By performing a breast self-exam at least one time every month, you will become very familiar with how your breasts normally feel and look. This will help make it easier for you to detect any abnormalities. The sooner breast cancer is detected, the more likely it can be successfully treated. October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month – a great time to schedule a mammogram and begin regular self-exams if you are not already doing them. Talk with your doctor or professional health care provider. Margaret Mercado, M.D., specializes in family medicine with the Franciscan Medical Group. Call Franciscan’s St. Elizabeth Hospital Physician Referral Line at 1-888-825-3227.

peanuts FROM 8 Here’s how to make homemade peanut butter. (Note: This recipe yields roughly 1 quart.) Purchase 1 bag of unshelled peanuts or 1 can (1 pound) of shelled, raw or roasted peanuts. Set aside about a tablespoon of vegetable or peanut oil. Shell the peanuts, if necessary, and put them into a food processor. Pulse the food processor to start chopping the peanuts. Scrape down the bowl to ensure that all of the peanuts get finely chopped. Add the vegetable oil to help make a smooth butter and continue to blend until smooth. Taste the peanut butter and mix in salt or a small amount of sweetener depending on personal preference. Honey makes a good sweet alternative to sugar. Peanut butter can remain fresh in a sealed container for roughly one month. It also can be frozen. Making homemade peanut butter ensures you have control over the ingredients, potentially creating a healthier alternative than store-bought varieties. It is an activity that families can do together and you’re guaranteed a great-tasting peanut butter customized to your palate.

If your in-laws are older, install certain amenities, such as grab bars in the shower and bathroom, during the initial construction so you won’t have to make changes down the road.

Wednesday, October 17, 2012 • The BONNEY LAKE Courier-Herald • Page 27 has ample lighting. * Remember to install safety features. Safety features like fire, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are a necessity. Make sure the alarms on each of these detectors are loud enough so elderly men and women who have hearing loss can hear them without issue. Make sure all walkways leading to the inlaw suite have motion detecting lamps at night to reduce risk of falling. Also, if the suite will be

a separate building from your house, such as a converted pool house or detached garage, install an intercom system that connects with the main house so your relatives can easily reach you in case of emergency. In-law suites are becoming more popular as a greater number of older adults are moving in with their adult children. Such suites can bring families closer together and prove beneficial for all parties involved.

The East Pierce Volunteer Firefighters Association will be holding their annual “Halloween Bash” from 1 to 3 p.m. Oct. 27 at East Pierce Fire and Rescue’s South Prairie Station 19, 350 SR 162 East. This is a free event open to the public with loads of fun for kids of all ages. This year will have many of the same fun and games from “Find the Candy in the Haystack” to “Hula-Hoop Pumpkin Toss.” There will also be pumpkins to paint, crafts to complete, and piñatas to break. The Scavenger Hunt, new at last year’s event, will also take place again, weather

permitting. Kids are encouraged to wear their costumes and there will be plenty of candy and sweet treats for the little goblins to devour as well. This is the fourth year the East Pierce VFA has hosted this event. “We truly enjoy serving our citizens and hosting fun events like this for the kids.” said Vol. Captain and East Pierce VFA Vice-President Mark Nevill. “We hope to continue this tradition for years to come!” The East Pierce VFA is made up of volunteer firefighters and emergency medical technicians who serve with East Pierce Fire and Rescue.
