Don’t forget to “fall back” this weekend as daylight savings time officially ends at 2 a.m. Sunday morning.

Wilkeson Elementary School students got busy Friday afternoon, digging in and planting tulip bulbs in three beds in front of their school. The planting was done as part of the Journey North Test Gardens project, in which kids throughout the northern hemisphere plant bulbs in the fall. When the plants emerge and bloom, students announce that spring has arrived in their part of the world. The project helps students understand the relationship between climate, geography and the changing of the seasons. Photos by Kevin Hanson

Weather The rain should continue today, Wednesday, with high temperatures in the upper 50s. The rain continues overnight with lows in the mid-40s and showers are likely Thursday, but the sun may peak through mostly cloudy skies Friday before showers return for the weekend..

Welcome to

Enumclaw’s library will be closed for more than two weeks, beginning Nov. 11. The closure is planned to extend through Nov. 27, with doors opening again on the 28th. The King County Library System has announced a series of interior upgrades that make closing the library necessary. A system spokeswoman said plans call for new paint, carpet, fixtures and furniture, as well as a new “Cyber Bar.” Things might be configured a bit differently, she said, but nothing will be dramatically different. The library system had earlier announced that patrons will not be able to pick up their holds dur-

Washington State Representative


HURST An Independent Voice for the 31st District

The Seattle Times and Tacoma News Tribune BOTH recommend the re-election of Representative Christopher Hurst once again! TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2012


The TNT endorses Hurst


The Times recommends Christopher Hurst and Cathy Dahlquist in the 31st District


hristopher Hurst, Independent Democrat, and Cathy Dahlquist, Republican, are the best candidates for the two seats for state representative in the 31st Legislative District, representing Auburn, Bonney Lake, Buckley, Enumclaw, Sumner and Edgewood in King and Pierce counties. In Position 2, incumbent Rep. Hurst, a retired police officer, has been one of the handful of House Democratic moderates, dubbed the “Roadkill Caucus,” (named because they are in the middle of the road, and can get run over). In 2011, he and seven others in the House defied party leadership to support urgent reform of workers’ compensation. The reform was needed to avoid sharp increases in payroll taxes that would have raised the cost of employing workers. In 2012, the same Democratic group joined Republicans in reducing the

subsidy for early retirement in pension plans for new state employees. For pushing these budget-related reforms, the roadkill Democrats took some damage from their caucus and from some traditional Democratic groups. Three of the eight are not running for re-election. Hurst is, and he deserves to be re-elected. Rep. Dahlquist, who runs an architectural business with her husband, should remain in Position 1. She was on the Enumclaw School Board before being elected to the House two years ago. In that time, she has supported the same budget-related reforms Hurst championed, while pushing for the cause closest to her heart: education. She supports an “education first” budget and public charter schools, and is a good fit for the district.


✔ A tough former police commander ✔ A leader working to create jobs


Christopher Hurst, the House Position 2 incumbent, calls himself an independent Democrat – which reflects his status vis-à-vis his party’s leadership. A retired police officer from Enumclaw, Hurst is a member of the so-called “Roadkill Caucus,” a group of Democratic centrists in the House who have butted heads with their party and its traditional supporters. The group tries to bypass partisan politics and work across the aisle to make progress on key issues like workers’ compensation. We like that kind of independence and wish more legislators would show it. District voters would be wise to retain Hurst, who serves as chairman of the House Public Safety Committee. His opponent, Auburn School Board member Lisa Connors, doesn’t make a strong case for replacing the veteran legislator. In the 31st District House Position 1 race, incumbent and small business owner Cathy Dahlquist, R-Enumclaw, faces a challenge from Democrat Brian L. Gunn of Auburn, a software testing engineer. In her freshman term, Dahlquist has shown an ability to work with the majority party – and her Democratic district counterpart, Rep. Christopher Hurst – to get legislation passed. A former Enumclaw School Board president, she is passionate about education – which will serve her well during battles over school reform and funding. We think voters should give her another term.

✔ A proud military father ✔ A fiscal conservative An Independent voice for citizens wanting solutions, not partisan politics.

Buckley OKs early retirement for longtime police officer Move is part of city’s budget cutting efforts Daniel Nash Staff Writer

Buckley Police will lose a longtime officer a little early in the city’s efforts to rein in the budget. Buckley City Council voted Tuesday night to authorize a mutual separation agreement with Sgt. Tim Personius, who

Library FROM 1 ing the closure. However, no one will lose holds that are on the shelves during the closure. It is suggested that until the beginning of the closure, any items for which holds are placed (that are not on a long wait list) should be changed to a different pick-up location. To show off the changes, the King County Library System will host a public open house at the library on Dec. 1.

has been with the department more than 25 years. As the city’s elected officials finalize the 2013 budget, they have actively sought options to reduce costs. They have already implemented two: closures of the Buckley Jail and 911 Dispatch services. A third option would see the police force lose one position. Personius, originally set to retire Jan. 8, according to a comment by Chief James Arsanto at the city council meeting, volunteered to accept a buyout package and retire early.

The buyout consists of a lump sum payment of one year’s salary at $73,644, 25 percent sick leave cash out, and cash outs of vacation and other compensatory time in accord with the city’s personnel policy and collective bargaining agreement. Though the buyout represents a sizable upfront expense, it shuts down an outflow of city cash in the long term. A separation date was not explicated on the contract handed out at the council meeting—though that date will precede the 2013 budget year—and Chief Jim Arsanto could not be reached for

comment. If within five years Personius returns to city employment at 60 hours a month or more, he will be required to pay back the pro rata remainder of the buyout package. The payback amount will be reduced by 1.67 percent of the original value each month, or 20 percent per year. If the buyout package totaled $100,000 and Personius returned to work 60 hours per month one year after leaving, he would be required to pay $80,000 back to the city.

Commiuttee to End Homelessness to focus efforts on finding shelter for single adults While reaffirming the commitment to creating the housing and supportive services that will make it possible to end homelessness in King County, the governing bard of the Committee to End Homelessness on Wednesday charged a regional task force to identify emergency housing options that would provide relief to those currently unsheltered. “Our strategy remains to end homelessness through creation of long-term affordable housing while working as a community to meet the needs of those who need shelter right now,” said King County Executive and board co-chair Dow Constantine. “The recession has hurt so many in our community, the need for shelter is great and the winter weather coming gives this issue more urgency,” said Dan Brettler, Chief Executive Officer of Car Toys and board co-chair. “The task force will help us identify the interim steps we can take to get people off the streets as quickly as possible.”

The 10-Year Plan to End Homelessness called for 9,500 new units of housing. By the end of 2011, a total of 5,046 new housing units had been created. In addition, more than 5,000 people were helped in homeless prevention programs during 2011. Across the region are a total of 1,800 shelter beds each night, and additional beds are provided in winter shelters around the county. It is estimated, however, that more than 2,000 people each night have nowhere to sleep. As part of a comprehensive review of the original goals and priorities of the 10-Year Plan approved in 2005, the governing board convened a task force in 2011 specifically to look at the issue of single adult shelter. The task force is chaired by human service planners from Kent, Bellevue and Seattle. Wednesday’s action expands the original charge to identify immediate shelter needs among homeless single adults, strategies to respond to these needs, costs, policy options

and opportunities to get people off the street as quickly as possible. In addition to Wednesday’s action, the CEH earlier this year commissioned a study of alternative models of low-income and homeless housing for developing more cost-effective housing units. Common Ground, a local nonprofit housing developer, is in the final stages of preparing that report, which will help inform decision on housing for homeless single adults. At Wednesday’s meeting, governing board members voiced support for finding solutions to emergency shelter needs as well as ensuring that creating long-term housing and supportive services remain the ultimate goal. “Our efforts to create shelter and housing must ensure services and tools to create a path to dignity and self-sufficiency,” said Renton councilman and governing board member Gregory Taylor. -from a press release

Spanish-speaking series continues

CAR INTO TREE: Police responded at 10:50 a.m. Oct. 25 to the vicinity of Griffin Avenue and Garfield Street, where one vehicle had crashed into a tree and a second involved vehicle was unoccupied. MUTUAL COMBAT: A woman advised police Oct. 25 her son had been assaulted by his younger brother earlier in the day. Police contacted the involved parties and their father; it was eventually determined to be a case of mutual combat and the issue was settled. JUVENILE TROUBLE: A woman called police the afternoon of Oct. 25, asking for help with her 16-year-old son who was refusing to come home and had been gone since the previous Saturday. After both parties were contacted and counseled, it was determined the best temporary solution was for the teen to stay with a friend. THEFT AT SCHOOL: Police took a report Oct. 25 regarding the theft of an iTouch and a cell phone from a locker at Enumclaw High School. NEIGHBOR DISPUTE: A citizen arrived at the police station lobby Oct. 25, complaining that a neighbor’s child continues to kick a ball against her fence. Both parties were contacted. The issue continued when the woman advised that the child’s mother had threatened her due to the police involvement. TRAFFIC CONTROL: City police responded at 8:47 a.m. Oct. 23 to the intersection of state Route 169 and Southeast 416th Street and the scene of a two-vehicle, head-on accident. Police helped with traffic control, along with members of the Washington State Patrol and King County Sheriff’s Office. UNWANTED: Police were contacted the afternoon of Oct. 23 by a Grand Fir Drive resident who told of a man pounding on the door, yelling and refusing to leave. An officer contacted all involved and the issue was settled. STOLEN AND RECOVERED: A Loraine Street resident reported a vehicle had been stolen while it was parked in front of the residence. It was last seen at 6:30 a.m. Oct. 22. It was recovered later in the day in Beaverton, Ore., still in working order and with both license plates intact. INTOXICATED: Police took a call the evening of Oct. 22 regarding a reckless driver in the vicinity of Griffin Avenue and Cole Street. While police were on the phone without he reporting party, a Washington State Patrol trooper pulled over the suspect. An officer stood by while the trooper made an arrest for driving under the influence. SUSPECT ARRESTED: Police arrested a person the afternoon of

Three sessions remain in the King County Library System’s Early Literacy Parties in Spanish series. The “fiestas” – offered each Wednesday from 6 to 7:30 p.m. – are designed for Spanish-speaking families to prepare their children for kindergarten. They offer families the opportunity to understand their role as their child’s most important teacher and encourage them to take a proactive approach in the education of their children. The remaining sessions in Enumclaw take place tonight, Wednesday, and Nov. 7 and Nov. 24. Each session will provide families with information about early literacy, free books in Spanish, craft materials, snacks, beverages and the opportunity to socialize with other Spanish-speaking families. Early literacy is what children need to know about reading and writing before they can actually read and write. The development of early literacy skills through early experiences with books, stories, dramatic play, talking, singing, nursery rhymes and art projects is linked to a child’s academic success. Registration is not required, but space is limited. For more information, contact Teresa Luengo Cid at 425-369-3443 or

Dinner, pie contest set for Greenwater Greenwater’s harvest dinner and pie contest – a fundraiser for the Greenwater Firefighters Association – is planned for Nov. 17. The event will take place in the community center, beginning with a 6 p.m. potluck dinner and followed at 7 by pie contest awards and a pie auction. Anyone entering the contest should take their pie – along with the recipe for crust, fillings and/or toppings – to the community center between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. on the 17th. The fee is $1 for each pie entered. Pies will be judged and winners will be announced following the potluck dinner. Cash prizes will be awarded in both adult and junior categories; the adult division is for those 15 and older. Winning pies will be auctioned off, with the rest sold by the slice. It is suggested that pies be in 9-inch aluminum pans, as winning pies and pans will go to the top bidder. For information about the pie contest, call April Hurst at 360-663-2608.

Garbage, recycling to be picked up Veterans Day The city of Enumclaw’s offices will be closed Nov. 12 in observance of the Veterans Day holiday, but garbage/recycling services will not be affected. Those who have garbage or recycling picked up on Mondays should keep to the regular schedule, with receptacles ready to be picked up by 6 a.m. Anyone with questions can call the city shops office at 360-825-5541.

Zombies FROM 1 removed and mounted with paintball markers. The only thing illuminating the few feet beyond the windows is a series of black lights. “Illuminating” might be generous; the outside world is security camera footage, washed out and monochrome. Everyone pours their keg cup ration of paintballs into their hoppers, pulls back the bolt on the receiver tube. Cocked, locked and ready to rock. Someone—probably a few people—immediately gives the trigger a few test pulls. “Don’t try to shoot yet,” the driver says over the intercom. “I’ll turn on the gas when we’re ready to go.” A few minutes later, the roving fortress turns the corner into zombie country. So far, no walkers. The team fires off a few shots at some scarecrows. Then the announcement comes. “Looks like we have a zombie up ahead,” the driver said. “Everyone ready?” It’s hard to tell the difference, at first, between the undead beast and the scarecrows. It’s partially due to the burlap poncho draped around its rotting neck, but it has more to do with the lack of motion. This was a classic Romero-style shambler, as opposed to the reanimated track stars dominating millennial horror flicks. Two seconds, one step. Two seconds, one step. In answer to the intercom, the bus fills with the thwup-thwup-thwup of a dozen markers going off at once. Neon orange trails glow under the blacklight, erupting pop-pop-pop across his chest. He stumbles backward, regains his footing.Two seconds, one step. Pop-pop-pop, he stumbles again. And, call it sympathy for the undead, but it’s hard not to mouth “I’m sorry.” • • • Rewind back half an hour. A zombie — possibly the first one to be shot tonight — is leaning against a picnic table, putting on the last of his protective gear. A dozen more do the same, in various states of dress: some are putting on hockey pads, some are still down to their painting coveralls; still others are already sliding on their rubber masks. “You actually just go by feel out there,” Pete Powers says. “I’ve been out there enough now that I can kind of tell where I’m going.” “The paint pretty much covers your goggles immediately,” another actor interjects. Pete nods. “You really can’t see anything after that. But I’ve only run into the bus

Wednesday, October 31, 2012 • The Enumclaw Courier-Herald • Page 5 once or twice.” Pete is one of more than a dozen actors to work Maris Farms’ Monster Safari attraction this year, suiting up at 7 p.m. to be shot until 1 a.m. The attraction averages three buses running simultaneously a night, one departing every six minutes. Even if only half of every bus’s occupants are competent marksmen, Pete can expect to be shot a good 20 times every six minutes. Understandably, Monster Safari lost a few zombies before season’s end. “We’ve had a few kids who just couldn’t handle it,” Erica Coleman says. “It’s definitely a hard job.” Erica is one of the make-up artists and the costumer for Monster Safari. She also fills the role of surrogate mother to the stable of actors, chatting them up before shift and, along with the other support staff, occasionally supplying them with food, water and hot cocoa between buses. She pegs the average age of the actors at 18 or 19, though a few are in their 20s. The bulk of them are wrestlers from Orting High School, earning cash before the winter sports season dominates their weekends. Each zombie is well protected. The actors start with a set of painter’s coveralls over their regular clothes. Next comes the armor. Every actor’s set is a unique hodgepodge of sport protectors and plastic sheeting, adjusted and improved week-by-week. Pete points out the nuances of his own gear: Hockey pants, rubber Incredible Hulk hands, a cup, scraps from a weightlifting mat. Cuts of rope act as de facto suspenders for the bottom gear, and black plastic sheeting is riveted over everything. As he gestures, his arm mostly manages wide, rigid motions. The armor is covered by big sheets of burlap before an actor can don his helmet and mask. “At first we tried for more realistic and unique zombies,” Erica says. “Like, a construction worker zombie here, another type of zombie there. But after a few nights, those costumes were falling apart, so we moved to cutting sheets of burlap and making ponchos.” She points at the sheet she’s cutting: “This one will be done at the end of the night.” “The paint soaks right through everything,” Jared Stanley says. “Through the burlap, through the armor, even through the coveralls. After everything, you’re just covered in paint and sweat.” Most of the actors say a long shower and plenty of sleep are necessary to properly

Photo by Daniel Nash recover after a shift. “Normally, my skin is as smooth and clear as an Alpine lake,” Pete jokes. “But I’m completely covered and sticky when we’re done. It gets all in my hair. It takes a long shower to make it better.” The suit bulks everyone up by double, slowing them down and making their zombie walk more authentic. The gear becomes even heavier as it collects paint, Erica says. Still, most of the actors say the costume isn’t as uncomfortable as you would think. And the upside is that they feel next to nothing when they get hit. Mostly. Every suit has the same weak spots on the inner arms and thighs. The actors who don’t wear steel-toed boots cite the feet and ankles as surprisingly sensitive spots to be shot. “If you look here, you can see where I still have bruises from last weekend,” Spencer Durand says as he rolls up his sleeves. “The face, too. I’ve been hit on the side of the head and the paint splatters right through the mask.” And the shooters on the bus—up to 40 at a time on a busy night—get into it. The zombies rattled off a list of battle cries they’ve heard, of which “Hit ‘em in the (groin)”—shouted by a teenaged girl—was among the tamest. Paintballs aren’t the only source of potential hurt, either. There are two classes of zombies in the Monster Safari attraction. The majority are walking targets, but the finale involves two more elaborately costumed zombies sneaking onto the bus

Life-long Enumclaw resident Aaron Douglas Harding died on October 9th 2012. He was born on December 10th 1962 and was 49 years old. He spent his entire life living in the Enumclaw area. He enjoyed being in the outdoors hunting, fishing and camping with friends and family. He was an avid outdoorsman, and enjoyed lending a hand whenever he could. He is survived by sons Aaron C. Harding and Avery Harding, his brother David B. Harding, his granddaughter Hannah his father Paul D. Harding, and extended family Carol Harding, Kara Banville, Cynthia Harding, Elizabeth Spears, Annette Gallegos Kushmaul, Gary M. Radliff, Lynn Radliff, Ron Radliff, Reese Radliff, Russ Radliff and his long-time best friends Allen Billingsley, Eric Norby and the entire Norby family, He was preceded in death by his mother Judy A. Radliff. A Memorial Service is planned for November 17th 2012 at 11:00am at Calvary Presbyterian Church located at 1725 Porter Street in Enumclaw, WA 98022. A potluck will follow the service in the church basement. Service is open to the public. In lieu of sending flowers donations may be dropped off at the church.

and giving the riders a scare. Not every rider responds with amusement. “I’ve been punched, kicked. I’ve been shoved down,” Spencer says. “I had my face ripped off once,” Tyler Blankenship adds. “Somebody just ‘sshhhriip,’ pulled my mask right off my face.” The actors do their part to freak out customers, grabbing limbs, waving prop chainsaws, hiding immediately out of sight and breathing on necks. It’s tame when you see it coming, but it’s easy to see how an unexpected rotting face over your shoulder could lead to blows. The targets who make it close enough to a bus will grab at trigger fingers and guns. “That gives them a pretty good scare,” Spencer says. Feelings at the end of the night are varied. Most seem to share Spencer’s take: “Cold, wet, and soggy.” Zac Pitchford, a bus zombie tonight, says a shift leaves him wide awake at the end of the night. Tyler agrees: “I feel like I could go another two hours.” “This is the funnest job I’ve ever had,” Zac says as he holds a drying cheek-rot prosthetic against his face. Someone else interjects that being shot at all night “sucks. It just sucks.” The job and nightly mess are difficult, but fun, Jared says. “It’s not the easiest job in the world, is it boys?” Erica asks. Tyler only has one answer: “I think you have to be slightly insane to do it.” or

School boasts true Letters Against Prop 1: hasty student-athletes decisions can end badly High school athletes are pulled in many directions, making like difficult at times. Yet most cruise happily through their days, living the life envied by employed adults everywhere. Many go beyond the norm and excel. We’re happy to report this, though not entirely surprised. Statistics released by Enumclaw High School last week showed a great number of prep athletes are able to stand out in the classroom while also practicing or competing five, or perhaps six, days a week. This fall season, the players who make up the EHS girls cross country team combined to post a Kevin Hanson grade-point average Senior Writer of 3.897. That’s staggering, considering these girls are pounding the pavement nearly every day to maintain their competitive edge. By the way, they’re among the league’s best runners. The varsity boys cross country team also excels, having posted a group GPA of 3.572. Here’s a glimpse at some of the other Hornet fall teams and their collective GPAs: volleyball, 3.796; girls golf, 3.764; boys golf, 3.195; soccer, 3.576; swim and dive, 3.529; and tennis, 3.257. The fall cheer crew maintains a 3.409 GPA.

LAST WEEK: Can a candidate’s performance during a debate alter the way you vote?

I wanted to thank Howard Botts for his sincere support of Black Diamond and its current governing body. As Black Diamond’s mayor for over 26 years, Mr. Botts can speak with authority and intimate knowledge of our city’s government and future development with YarrowBay. I have never been one to get involved in politics. However, as a Black Diamond resident for 60 years, I have a vested interest in how this community thrives and survives. I am speaking out now as I feel this proposed change to our city’s form of government will not be in the best

interest of our community and my home. These are troubled times. Many people are unhappy with some of the plans for future development with the planned communities/YarrowBay. However, changing the structure of our city’s government to include a city manager in place of a mayor is not going to resolve any issues, only add confusion. Maintaining the control with elected officials with vested interests in their community, such as the mayor and council members, maintains consistency and keeps Black Diamond in the hands of the community – our community. We, as citizens, do not need the added expense of hiring a city manager and reserve the right to change our mayor or council members during regular elections. Hiring a city manager, from within or outside our community, is an added expense we

do not need to undertake. Let’s keep level heads and not be reactionary. Hasty decisions tend to have poor results. Lynda Maks Black Diamond

Supports Prop 1: BD is in need of a city manager Over the past few weeks I have read several misleading letters regarding November’s Proposition 1 to change our form of government in Black Diamond. Our City Council voted to place this issue on the ballot in response to citizens who are frustrated with the direction the city has taken over the past several years. Black Diamond direly needs a city manager to run the day-to-day operations of our growing city. A “yes”

What happens if no one wins? All the polls say this presidential election will be very close. According to one political writer, it will come down to about a million people who live in the battleground states whose highest education is a high school diploma. What if there is no clear Electoral College winner? What if neither candidate gets the necessary 270 electoral votes to win the presidency? Understanding what happens next according to the Constitution may be important. The last time there was a question of the winner was in the 2000 presidential race between George W. Bush and Al Gore. The issue then was whether the ballots in Florida

In Focus Rich Elfers Columnist

were correctly counted. You may remember the “hanging, dimpled or pregnant chads.” This question eventually ended with a decision of the U.S. Supreme Court awarding Florida’s 25 electoral votes to George W. Bush. Although Gore had won the popular vote,

Bush had won the all-important electoral vote by a margin of 271 to Gore’s 266. What if neither Obama nor Romney gets the required 270 electoral votes to win? That problem is technically possible in this election. According to the Constitution: “If no candidate receives a majority of Electoral votes, the House of Representatives elects the President from the 3 Presidential candidates who received the most Electoral votes. Each state delegation has one vote” (Office of the Federal Register, from the 12th Amendment).

LETTERS FROM 6 vote by us changes our government to a council-manager form, just like our sister cities of Maple Valley and Covington. Our City Council then hires a qualified, experienced city manager, who reports directly to the council. Last November we overwhelmingly elected (about 75 percent vs. about 25 percent) new city council members to help correct our course, which has strayed dangerously from the needs of our citizens to the convenience of the developer. Although YarrowBay and its massive proposed 6,000-home Master Planned Developments won’t go away, we do need to ensure everything is properly mitigated and no costs fall on the existing residents: growth must pay for growth. I don’t want my taxes going up to add to the profits of YarrowBay and I don’t want the frustrating traffic we now face to grind to a complete halt. The “no” side tries to spout scare tactics. One is that “we would lose the right to vote for mayor.” Actually, we will still

ELFERS FROM 6 The last time this occurred was in the presidential election of 1876, 11 years after the Civil War. White southern Democrats had terrorized and intimidated Republican voters through violence to the point where 250,000 citizens had been prevented from voting. Southern Democrats won the election and regained control of all but three of the southern states: Louisiana, Florida and South Carolina. Republicans contested the electoral vote tallies of those three states. This put the winner of the election in dispute. Samuel Tilden, a Democrat, had won the popular vote in this election, but he did not have enough electoral votes. Rutherford Hayes was his Republican opponent. Since no candidate had won enough electoral votes to gain the presidency, the decision was thrown into the House of Representatives. The House formed a committee of

PSE announces rate decrease Almost 2 million natural gas customers in Washington can expect to see lower heating bills this winter due to a decrease in wholesale natural gas costs. The Washington Utilities and Transportation

Commission on Thursday approved requests by the state’s four investor-owned natural gas companies to reduce rates for customers beginning Nov. 1. Natural gas companies in Washington are required to

adjust rates periodically to reflect changes in wholesale prices. More than half to about two-thirds of a customer’s monthly bill is attributable to the cost of

eight Republicans and seven Democrats. The vote went to Hayes, but knowing the Democrats would be furious, a political deal was reached called the Compromise of 1877. In accordance with this compromise, the Republicans removed federal occupying troops from the South, leaving the fate of the former slaves in the hands of white southerners. As a result of this political deal, blacks were legally segregated and most lost their voting rights until the mid-1960s. White southerners as a body abandoned the Democratic Party after segregation ended and black voting rights were restored in the 1960s. Since that time a majority of Southern whites have voted Republican. Could there be a case where neither candidate won the election again? It’s statistically possible, but very remote. It can be seen though, that the era in which we live is not as divided, nor as politically ruthless, as it was 12 years after the Civil War. For that we can be thankful.

have a mayor. The current mayor joins the city council as a sixth member. The council appoints a seventh member and this council selects a mayor from among its ranks for official functions. This mayor does not control city administration and has no powers except those other city council members have. The city administration is run by the city manager, who reports to the entire city council, not just the mayor. Another deceptive “no” argument is that “we would lose our checks and balances.” But we don’t have checks and balances now. Under our present form of government, the mayor has most of the power by completely controlling all city departments. Presently there are few checks on the mayor and this isn’t very balanced.

I believe once you do, you will come to the same decision I and so many others have – to vote “yes” on Proposition 1. Carol Lynn Harp Black Diamond

sion and beyond? CONNORS: My top priority will be to serve on the Education and Education Appropriations committees continuing necessary reforms and increasing education funding. I will focus on funding education first. As a first term legislator I will also focus heavily on communication with constituents and building relationships with legislators and the business community. DAHLQUIST: My plans are to continue what I started to improve public education by focusing on what is best for students and measurable outcomes. I also want to continue reforming state government in the areas of Labor and Industry, workers compensation and the Growth Management Act that will encourage economic growth in our state and not hamstring growth with over reaching regulations and bureaucracy. I am one of only a handful of elected legislators that actually owns a small business. I will continue to work needed government reforms that will offer relief to business so people can get back to work. My work on business friendly legislation has been recognized with awards from the Association of Washington Business and the National Federation of Independent Business. I was named Legislator of the Year by the Fraternal Order of Police for

My support for i mprovCathy Dahlquist ing student outcomes has earned me the endorsement of pro education organizations, Stand for Children, the League of Education Voters and the Washington Education Association. GUNN: The upcoming legislative session in Olympia will be dominated by another debate over how to balance the budget in the face of declining revenues. Legislators will be under tremendous pressure to make further cuts to education as well as cutting programs for the elderly, the disabled and the homeless. But budget cuts don’t fill potholes. Cuts don’t educate our children. And cuts don’t create jobs. The people of Washington are doing a great job for business. Productivity is up 120 percent since 1970. At the same time, tax preferences for corporations have tripled from $15 billion to $45 billion. It’s time to close tax loopholes for big business. Many corporate tax loopholes aren’t doing any good for the people of this state. Corporations used to be subject to much higher tax rates and they were still extremely profitable. It’s time once

again for big business to pay its fair share. I look forward to working on creating health insurance exchanges, but these exchanges must serve the people and not the insurance industry by driving down costs, establishing strict requirements for continued participation and providing consumers with reliable information about insurance plans and their eligibility for tax credits as well as state and federal assistance programs. I also support the American Health Security Act of 2011 which would provide federal guidelines and strong minimum standards for states to administer single-payer health care programs. Washington state could then pass legislation to establish a Medicare-forall style single payer system. I believe access to high quality health care is a civil right, but it just makes good economic sense to get better control over the cost of providing health care: single-payer programs do just that. HURST: To begin with, working on our economic recovery and jobs is my first priority. Without a strong economy, we will never have the money to fund education properly – first things first. We are now recovering from the worst economic disaster since the Great Depression, which was caused by a global banking meltdown that began in 2007. We have passed strong laws to keep such an event from ever

happening again in our financial markets, but we are still recovering from the damage. I also feel that we need strong public safety laws to protect honest, law-abiding citizens, because without public safety, nothing else in society will work. As a 25-year veteran police commander and detective, I have been working to pass laws to protect citizens from violent crime and sex offenders. I also know from my years in police work, that our first line against kids becoming involved in drugs, gangs and crime is a good education system. We need a dedicated education budget and for the legislature to fund education first. Those are my top three priorities in the legislature and, really, they all work together. Describe your plans and goals for longterm economic stability. D A H L Q U I S T : Identifying the priorities of government is the first step in recognizing what services are most important. Education, public safety and serving the most vulnerable (those that are unable to care for themselves) are the core government services that should not be compromised. It is fairly simple, operating state government leaner and not spending more than you have. Plan for the future and long term stability by continuing to reform pensions and fully funding what is owed and

stop kicking the can down the road. I would not support raising taxes to balance the budget. People are struggling to find a job, pay their mortgage or keep their business afloat. I support the continued work on government reforms in all areas including, Labor & Industry and workers compensation that would offer some relief in the cost of doing business in our state and spur our economic recovery. I will continue to work to eliminate the “use it or lose it” budgeting process within our state agencies that encourages spending to retain funding. Agencies operate under budgets that are figured on what they spent the previous year. Incentivizing savings within departments and agencies can create a budgeting system that rewards good accounting practices, fiscal responsibility and real savings. GUNN: Low-income families already pay over 17 percent of their household income in taxes, while the top earners pay less than 3 percent. To make our tax system fairer, we should implement a capital gains tax, so long as we exempt the first $10,000 for individuals ($20,000 for couples) and the sale of a primary residence or farmland. We should use the additional revenue to restore education funding and improve public transportation, since these are key to creating a robust and resilient economy. I believe small business is good business. Instead of discouraging job growth by taxing gross receipts, I’ll

work to reform or eliminate the grossly unfair business and occupation tax that makes starting a small business here so difficult. Instead, I would support a value-added tax that would help Washington small businesses grow and be more competitive. More successful small businesses means more jobs, and higher employment means more consumer spending and more revenue for the state. HURST: I have been working to make our state budget sustainable. I started by cutting my own legislative pay last year to help make ends meet. State government is doing more with less and it starts with me. Although I was one of the first to take this voluntary pay cut, most legislators have also done so. We passed a best-in-thenation four-year balanced budget law. That means that we now have not only a two-year balanced state budget, but the budget is not allowed to create a deficit in the following two years. I was a leader in the push for this legislation that was passed by both Democrats and Republicans. We are also forcing more government efficiencies and passed reforms to the public pensions for new hires that will save billions of dollars in the years to come—money we can now invest in education. We are also eliminating unfunded mandates that were bending our state spending curve higher each year. We created a constitutionally protected Rainy Day Fund that the voters also approved which, during good times, will allow us to save for a rainy day. CONNORS: I believe the

private sector creates jobs, not the government. To get Washington working again we need to reduce regulation and lower taxes for all business while providing workforce training to help get our unemployed the skills necessary for the jobs in our state. I will continue to focus on ways to create a healthy business climate supporting business and development of career and technical programs. How will the state pay for the education mandate handed down by the state Supreme Court? GUNN: I don’t think Wall Street banks should m a k e money off of our tax dollars. Let’s put our money to work for us right here in Brian Gunn Wa shing ton. A state bank would partner with existing local banks to encourage small businesses, make it easier for municipalities to fund infrastructure improvements while driving job growth in the resulting construction projects and give college students relief from the crushing burden of debt. If we close tax loopholes for big business, make our tax system less regressive (see my answers to No. 2, above), get control of health care costs and start a state bank, Washington will be able to fully fund the school system as mandated by the McCleary decision and continue to provide support and services for those who need it most through such programs as the Rainier School.


HURST: I have listed a number of the ways we are increasing efficiencies in state government and the state budget to save billions of dollars in the next decade. We will invest this money in education to help meet the Supreme Court mandate, but it still will not be enough. We will make more cuts and in the case of social services, eliminate fraud, waste and abuse. I have been working with other legislators to shift those in need from cash grants to vouchers for housing and food when they are in need. We were seeing too many stories about people using the cash EBT cards for drugs, gambling, alcohol and tobacco products. Cutting down on waste and fraud is critical, while at the same time maintaining a safety net for those truly in need, but people need a hand to get up and back on their feet, not a handout that ultimately leaves them in distress and dependent on government support. We have also been working hard to save money and find efficiencies in our Workers Compensation system and unemployment insurance. This saves money and keeps rates down for small businesses. When we save money, we invest it in education. CONNORS: The question should be, ‘how will the state pay for all other services after it pays for education?’ The state Constitution and the Supreme Court made it clear that the state must amply provide for the education of all Washington children as the state’s first and highest priority before any other state programs or operation. Fund education first. DAHLQUIST: I was a

prime sponsor of the “Fund Education First” legislation that would amply fund education prior to any other agency or government service as stated in the Washington State Constitution. This legislation would create a separate education budget, similar to the transportation and capital budget. I have also supported LEA (Local Effort Assistance/ Levy Equalization) which balances the propertyrich districts with property poor districts and is a critical funding source for the Enumclaw, White River, Auburn and Sumner school districts. I have been appointed to the Joint Task Force on Education Funding and Education Accountability and will continue to look for balance when restructuring our funding priorities and align them with measurable accountability practices. What is the difference between you and your opponent and what makes you the best candidate? HURST: Although I respect my opponent and appreciate her participation in the race, there are profound differences between us. We are both elected officials, she’s on the Auburn School Board and I’m in the State Legislature, but our approach to this fiscal crisis is very different. I cut office and mailing budgets and my own legislative pay. At the same time, she has been traveling very extensively on taxpayer dol-


lars to San Diego, Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, Orlando and other locations, spending thousands of dollars on each trip— money that should be spent in the classroom teaching our kids. Even in-state, when she goes to Seattle for a meeting, instead of putting in for reimbursement for the 27 miles driven each way, she stays in the Seattle Westin Hotel for the night, on taxpayer dollars. We also differ on efficiencies. She has proposed the significant reduction or elimination of the Department of Natural Resources, even though they produce significant revenue for school construction through selling state timber, and leases to technology companies for cell towers. This plan would also cost thousands of jobs in our area in the logging and forest products business. I’m working to keep those jobs. CONNORS: My opponent is part of a serious problem in Olympia. He is a 10-year incumbent Democrat who has continued to cut education, harm business and continue the agenda of Seattle liberals. It is time for a change. DAHLQUIST: I have worked hard to represent the people of the 31st Legislative District in a fair and equitable fashion. I have worked across party lines to help pass some needed government reforms that

Give in to your dark side – pick a plant partner The end of October is a great time to celebrate all that is dark and orange in the garden. Great foliage color makes these plants perfect partners for the fall garden and for laid back gardeners that just want to enjoy the change of seasons from an armchair.

Best trees for fall color: Japanese maples

No place in the world do Japanese maples grow better than western Washington. Yes, better even than in Japan – because our gardens are bigger so our Japanese maple trees get to spread out. There are Japanese maples for every size garden, including grafted plants that will thrive for

years in a container, perfect for a deck or small patio. You can use Japanese maples as an under story tree in the shade of giant evergreens, as a street tree and as an accent tree to dress up a home’s curbside appeal. The small leaves and graceful form make Acer palmatums easy to live with. Look for the Bloodgood Japanese maple if you want a slender tree for the lawn or entry garden that will turn brilliant scarlet in the fall. Coral bark Japanese maples have vivid orange bark that will showcase a winter theme garden and the dwarf Crimson Queen Japanese maple has a delicate weeping form perfect around water features.

Hot Italians for autumn beauty


You can also be original and pick out a different variety from the hundreds offered at local nurseries. Fall is the best time to pick out a maple for your landscape because you’ll be able to see just how colorful the foliage will become each year. Another less common tree that celebrates autumn glory in our climate is the Sourwood or Oxydendrum arboreum with year-round interest from spring blooms and winter catkins and spectacular fall foliage. This is

The burning bush or Euonymus alatus compacta is the fiery-red shrub heating up hillsides along the interstate and most often planted in drifts in public spaces. But there are so many other fall foliage shrubs to chose from. Spiraeas, especially the variety Goldflame are shrubs just as droughttolerant and easy to grow in full sun, but the spiraeas also offer summer f lowers. For a more shaded area consider nandina “Sienna Sunrise” for brilliant foliage in both spring and fall. This nandina was named after a town in Tuscany with rich, red soil; nobody loves drama like an Italian so plant a Sienna Nandina while you sing some opera and enjoy a colorful performance in both spring and fall.

All about the birds and the berries

Cotoneaster is the go-to groundcover for slopes or large areas that need evergreen cover and winter berries but garden centers and nurseries also have Beautyberry or Calliocarpa for sale this month. Look for the variety Profusion Beautyberry with abundant and intensely purple berries on a hard-to-kill shrub. Once you have this colorful, berry-filled shrub in your landscape you’ll wonder how you ever survived the winter without its profuse beauty. Other plants including natives like Oregon grape and salal will multiply your fall and winter interest because they attract birds to the garden without the need for filling up the feeders with seed.

Going Dark but not Spooky

Black mondo grass, Chocolate Chip ajuga, and Black Lace Elderberry are all plants with rich, dark foliage. Nurseries and gar-

den centers are highlighting dark foliage in their October displays so they make it easy to visit the dark side and add a touch of black as an exclamation point in a garden design. Add easy-care trees, shrubs and groundcovers with fantastic fall foliage to your landscape now and you’ll be able to sit indoors and enjoy the show for years to come. •

Charles Adams Charles Emmett Adams of Enumclaw passed away peacefully on October 19, 2012 at his home with his family at the age of 71. Charles was born at home in Roslyn, WA on March 13, 1941, to Floyd W. and Mathilda B. Adams, he was the second youngest of 6 siblings: Francis Bagnasco of Walnut Creek, CA, Floyd Adams of Yakima, WA, John Adams of Chelan, WA, James Adams of Mabton, WA, and Richard Adams of Wenatchee, WA. He grew up in Roslyn and attended Cle Elum High School before going on to attend the University of Washington where he graduated with a Bachelors in Accounting. He met his wife Jenny Sue Spaulding Adams on a blind date, and they married less than 3 months later on June 29th of 1972. They lived in his condo in Redondo for 6 years before building a house together in Zenith, WA. In August of 1981 they had their first and only daughter, Elisabeth. He was a very proud father and loved to spend time reading to her and sharing new experiences with her. They moved to Enumclaw in 1984 and built another house together in Enumclaw in 1988, where Jenny Sue still lives. Charles was a tax accountant and bookkeeper for over 30 years. But he really enjoyed opportunities to be creative; one of his hobbies was making birdhouses. He also really enjoyed reading, history was his favorite but he read all genres. He had a thirst for knowledge and really seemed to almost devour books and articles. He loved talking to people, it is almost like he tolerated the accounting work, but treasured getting to know and talk to his clients. Later in life when he stopped driving he rode the bus into Seattle and Tacoma to meet with clients and he actually enjoyed striking up conversations with his fellow passengers. He enjoyed being around people and talking and learning from them. Charles developed type 1 diabetes as a young man, his first major complication happened when he was 44 and he lost his first leg to Diabetes. He had his second leg amputated in October of 2000. Being the strong and stubborn man that he could be he was determined not to let it slow him down. He was able to walk and get around pretty well on two prosthetic legs for another 10 years. In December of 2010 he was severely burned and was in the Harborview Burn Unit ICU for several months, where he had multiple skin grafting surgeries. He was then in and out of rehabilitation facilities trying to regain his strength and ability to walk. He was limited in his mobility, but he did manage to walk again. In August of 2012 he had a massive heart attack that caused some permanent damage to his heart and hastened the chronic kidney failure that he was already suffering from. Charles lived an extraordinary life and was stubborn and determined to the end. He really enjoyed talking to and spending time with all of his friends and family as well as perfect strangers he happened to strike up a conversation with. Chuck’s passing leaves a huge hole in the lives and hearts of all who knew and loved him. He is survived by his wife Jenny Sue Adams of Enumclaw, WA and his daughter Elisabeth Adams of Bothell, WA. He is also survived by all of his siblings and 18 nieces and nephews. Please join us, and share your memories as we celebrate his amazing life. A celebration of Charlie’s life will be held on Friday November 9th at 2:30pm at the Enumclaw VFW Hall at 44426 244th Ave. SE, Enumclaw, WA 696024

HOUSE FROM 9 benefit all taxpayers in our district. I would be honored to continue to represent you. I support requiring a two-thirds majority vote in both chambers of the legislature to raise taxes. It should be a bipartisan effort to make a change that affects all citizens in our state. This proposal has been passed by the citizens of Washington five times since 1993. This requirement also encourages greater accountability to taxpayers. The easy choice in a budget crunch is to hit taxpayers with new and higher taxes. The high threshold created by I-1053 forces the Legislature to make the difficult choices to reform, restructure and make government more efficient first when facing a budget shortfall. My opponent opposes the two-thirds majority initiative. I oppose an income tax. My opponent collected signatures for I-1098, an initiative to create an income tax in 2010. I want to continue the needed government reforms in L&I, state pensions and workers compensation. My opponent wants to increase costs to employers and taxpayers at the cost of losing jobs. I support the concept of the free market to drive our economy and policy decisions and not government policy to drive an unsustainable market. I also believe that small business development and expansion will lead us toward economic recovery. Allowing small business to do what they do best and not interfere with them by burdening them with additional rules and regulations and offering relief would benefit all businesses in our state. My opponent wants to create new bureaucracies in Olympia. I oppose the Washington State Bank proposal being brought forward by my opponent. I agree with Assistant State

Treasurer Wolfgang Opitz, speaking on behalf of his boss, Washington State Treasurer James McIntire (Democrat) against a state bank bill in January 2012 during a committee hearing that a state bank Lisa Connors “would place both public funds and the state as a whole at significant risk.” He also stated, “The bill violated the Washington State Constitution’s prohibition against loaning the state’s credit.” The initial cost of creating this new government agency has been estimated at $85 million and then $150 million each biennium to sustain the banking agency. I am in support of shrinking the size and scope of government not expanding. GUNN: Recently, decisions made in Olympia by our legislators, including my opponent, have consistently hurt those who are already suffering while protecting the profits of giant multi-national corporations. Lobbyists promise generous campaign contributions to elected officials who will continue to sponsor and vote for legislation that amounts to nothing more or less than corporate welfare. Olympia is controlled by the special interests; that’s why I am accepting contributions only from individuals, not from corporations, PACs, unions or political parties. Instead of protecting big money interests, I will represent the people, fight for equal rights and create opportunity for all. My candidacy represents a clean break from “pay to play” politics. When legislation comes up for a vote, my first and only consideration will be what is best for the people of 31st Legislative District and the state. That’s what makes me the best candidate for this position.


How will you vote on Referendum 74 (marriage for same-sex couples)? DAHLQUIST: The voters will ultimately decide the outcome of the redefinition of marriage. I believe that the definition of marriage resides in one’s religious beliefs and not in the opinions of our state government. As a Catholic, I am opposed to redefining marriage as it is currently defined. The domestic partner law that was passed by the voters in 2009 allows couples that are the same sex to have the same legal rights of all couples. GUNN: Washington’s Marriage Equality bill should be approved by the voters and become state law. We have a legal and moral obligation under the U.S. and state constitutions to ensure that all persons are treated equally before the law. Furthermore, I believe that two men or two women getting married in no way, shape or form harms me or anyone else or detracts from any of the other married couples who live in our state. The right to marry the person you love is a civil right that must be available to every citizen on an equal basis. HURST: I voted no on the floor of the House when the measure was before me. CONNORS: I will Reject the bill passed by the Legislature. How will you vote on Initiative 502 (legalizing/regulating marijuana)? GUNN: I support legalization of marijuana. We are spending an inordinate amount of money to process people (a disproportionate number of whom are people of color) through our criminal justice system for possession of small amounts of marijuana. There are flaws with this initiative with respect to the DUI provisions being based on levels of THC in the blood that could make it impossible for users of medical marijuana to drive legally, so the legislature should take steps to correct this


by changing the medical marijuana law to require evidence of impairment beyond the blood test for a DUI conviction. HURST: I will vote no on this initiative because marijuana use and sales Christopher Hurst is a violation of federal law. If Washington were to legalize marijuana, no tax revenue would be collected or available as the federal government has already said that they would seize the money from the state as proceeds of illegal criminal activity and prosecute those involved in the process. That makes no sense. Additionally, we have enough problems with young people using illegal and prescription drugs and people on public assistance with substance-abuse problems. Do we really need to make it worse by telling folks that marijuana is legal? Finally, if Washington “legalizes” marijuana and tells its citizens that it is, but a citizen gets caught at a park, on the water or crossing the border and is arrested by a federal agent, they will be charged and convicted of a federal drug crime and keep that conviction for the rest of their lives, seriously hampering any chance of getting a job, renting or buying property, getting a loan, going to school or succeeding in life—that’s not fair. CONNORS: I will note “no.” DAHLQUIST: Until the federal government takes action to change the definition of marijuana as a controlled narcotic, I will not support the legalization at the state level. Currently, the law allows for patients to obtain a recommendation from a doctor that allows them to use small amounts of the drug for medicinal purposes.

Sick & Tired of Being

Fall is here, and as seasons change, so does your body. Old cells are sloughing off and new cells are being created. During this process sometimes our immune system is compromised and we may become sick. If your immune system is high, you have a greater chance of not becoming sick. A “shot” of Health There are a number of supplements and measures you can take to support your immune system and fight off flu. Recent studies are showing the crucial role Vitamin D plays in immunity. If you are not receiving 25-30 minutes of direct sunlight

Sick & Tired?

exposure to your skin, you may be Vitamin D deficient.( A balanced diet will provide much of other necessary vitamins. Vitamin C is just as easy to obtain in red peppers or broccoli as it is in a pill. Zinc, found in every cell of our body, is crucial for immune system function and healing. It can be found in many animal proteins, whole grains and nuts. The hardest thing to do may be avoiding sugar. It increases insulin which reduces some hormone production. This depresses your immune system, leaving you more vulnerable to illness.

Finally, prevent the flu from spreading. The virus enters your body through your mouth and nose. Cover your coughs and wash your hands frequently. Consider salt water rinses to prevent proliferation of the virus in your body. Drinking plenty of fluids will keep you hydrated and can help wash the virus into your stomach, where it can’t survive.

The truth about the Flu Shot



1. What's in the regular flu shot?

6 Days

• Egg protein and avian contaminant viruses • Formaldelhyde: carcinogen

a Week

• Resin: known allergen

rs o t c a r p o r i 3 Ch ge & 5 Massa on s t s i p a r e h T ou!

staff to help y

• Thimerosal (mercury): in multi-dose vials • Triton X100: detergent • Gentamycin: antibiotic • Polysorbate 80: allergen; infertility in mice • Sucrose; table sugar • Gelatin: known allergen

2. Do flu shots work? • Not in healthy babies: A review of 51 studies involving more than 294,000 children it was found there was “no evidence” that injecting children 6-24 months of age with a flu shot was any more effective than placebo. In children over 2 yrs. it was only effective 33% of the time in preventing the flu. Reference: “Vaccines for preventing influenza in healthy children.” The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews. 2 (2008). • Not in children with asthma: A study 800 children with asthma, half were vaccinated and the other half did not receive the influenza vaccine. The two groups were compared with respect to clinic visits, emergency department (ED) visits, and hospitalizations for asthma. CONCLUSION: This study failed to provide evidence that the influenza vaccine prevents pediatric asthma exacerbations. Reference: “Effectiveness of influenza vaccine for the prevention of asthma exacerbations.” Christy, C. et al. Arch. Dis. Child. 2004 Aug;89(8):734-5. • Not in children with asthma (2): "The inactivated flu vaccine does not prevent influenza-related hospitalizations in children, especially the ones with asthma… In fact, children who get the flu vaccine are three times more at risk for hospitalization than children who do not get the vaccine.” Reference: The American Thoracic Society's 105th International conference, May 15-20, 2009, San Diego. • Not in adults: In a review of 48 reports (more than 66,000 adults), “Vaccination of healthy adults only reduced risk of influenza by 6% and reduced the number of missed work days by less than one day (0.16) days. It did not change the number of people needing to go to the hospital or take time off work.” Reference: “Vaccines for preventing influenza in healthy adults.” The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews. 1(2006). • Not in the Elderly: In a review of 64 studies over 98 flu seasons of elderly living in nursing homes, flu shots were non-significant for preventing the flu. For elderly living in the community, vaccines were not (significantly) effective against influenza, ILI or pneumonia. Reference: “Vaccines for preventing influenza in the elderly.” The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews. 3(2006). So if the idea of getting a flu shot is reassuring to you, don’t let me stop you. But there’s a good chance that all the flu protection you need can be achieved by getting your immune system in check. Receive regular Chiropractic adjustments, get the right amount of sleep, eat a balanced diet, and maintain a light to moderate exercise regimen. Supplementing with a few proven helpers will help us fight the flu bug as well. By getting adjusted, your spine is aligned properly so there is no interference. With no interference your immune system is now operating at a higher percentage. In our office we focus on Lifestyle, which we believe to be a Balance. It is not just doing one thing. In order to establish a well balanced lifestyle, you need to have equal levels of Exercise, Diet, Chiropractic, and a Positive Mental Attitude! Martin R. Henschell D.C.

Local golfers earn state trip By Kevin Hanson Senior Writer

Three from White River guaranteed a state berth

At lease three members of the White River High golf program will be playing in the spring Class 2A state championship, based on their strong finishes during the Oct. 22-23 qualifying tournaments. The qualifiers were contested at both the Fort Lewis course and the Gold Mountain golf complex. Boys At Gold Mountain, Zahn Brooks fired a two-day total of 165 and placed fourth, while Ryne Peterson finished at 167 and wound up fifth. They are guaranteed spots in the May state tournament, to be played at the highly-regarded Chamber’s Bay course in University Place. Three other members of the Hornet boys team still have a shot at making the state tourney, thanks to

their performances at Gold Mountain. Tanner Williams, Zach Howard and Tanner Sherstobitoff all earned berths in May’s state qualifying tourney. Williams’ two-day total of 170 was good for eighth place and leaves him as the first alternate to state; Howard finished in a 10th-place tie with a total of 173 and Sherstobitoff ended at 177 to tie for 13th. Girls Following a second-place finish during the South Puget Sound League 2A regular season, the White River High girls also embarked on postseason golf, playing Oct. 22 at Fort Lewis and Oct. 23 at Gold Mountain. The Hornets’ Caitlyn Miller placed sixth during the qualifier, shooting a combined 183 and guaranteeing herself a spot in the spring state tournament. White River’s Syndee Scott finished ninth (206) and Sutton Mills was 12th (211), meaning each will play in May’s state quali-

fier. A good finish there will shoot the duo into state tourney play. Also during Bremerton play, Jordanne Fray finished 18th and Maci Goethals was 22nd. They are the first and fifth alternates, respectively, for the spring qualifying tourney. Also during the regional qualifier at Gold Mountain, White River’s Taylor Wombacher placed 25th.

Pair from EHS girls team earn spot in 3A state tourney

A pair of Enumclaw High golfers must now wait until spring, but have guaranteed themselves a berth in the Class 3A state championships. During qualifying rounds last week, Tiffany Wilkening and Madeline Petellin earned a trip to the 3A state tourney, planned for May 21-22 in Vancouver. Playing the Cascade Course at Gold Mountain Golf Complex, Wilkening finished with a two-day total

of 165, good for a thirdplace tie. Petelllin wound up fourth with a two-round total of 168. While they are the only two to have secured a state berth, five other Enumclaw High golfers remain in the chase for a spot at state. On the girls side, both Tammy Wilkening and Kadyn Eldridge played well enough to land berths in the West Central District spring qualifier – giving them one more opportunity to nail down a berth in the state tourney. During last week’s competition, Tammy Wilkening totaled 178 for two days and Eldridge finished at 182. Teammate Maddie Pillo shot 192 and is an alternate to the spring qualifier. On the Hornet boys side, Josh Erickson totaled 170 for two rounds last week, placing him in the WCD spring qualifier. Bill Miller also shot 170, but is an alternate to the spring qualifying tournament. The boys played Gold Mountain’s Olympic Course.

The White River High girls find themselves one victory away from the Class 2A state soccer tournament, needing just a Saturday morning victory to keep their season alive.

The Hornets are slated to play at 10 a.m. Saturday at Franklin Pierce High School, taking on the No. 2 seed from the Olympic League. The winner advances to state as the West Central District’s No. 6 seed, while the loser is finished for the year.

Tourney time for volleyball By Kevin Hanson Senior Writer

Enumclaw enters after tying for league title

The co-league champion Enumclaw High Hornets took runner-up status during Saturday’s subdistrict volleyball tournament and will kick off West Central District play Friday evening. By virtue of their second-place subdistrict showing, the Hornets enter WCD action as the No. 2 seed and earned a first-round bye. Their first district contest will come at 6 p.m. Friday at Auburn Mountainview. Last weekend’s subdistrict action included a decisive, three-set victory over Auburn Mountainview, which launched the Hornets into the championship round against the Bonney Lake Panthers. After grabbing the opening game 25-20, EHS

fell in the next three.

White River opens against Port Angeles

The White River Hornets open district volleyball action Friday night, fresh off a break-even subdistrict tourney. The West Central District III tournament opens at Franklin Pierce High School, with White River paired against Port Angeles in a 5 p.m. contest. White River enters as the No. 4 seed from last weekend’s South Puget Sound League/Seamount subdistrict, while the Roughriders come in as the No. 5 seed from the Olympic League. If the Hornets defeat Port Angeles, they will play again at 10 a.m. Saturday against the top-seeded squad from the Olympic League; if the Hornets fall Friday to the Roughriders, they will be finished for the season.

Enumclaw Regional Healthcare Foundation presents:

The Hornets’ final game of the regular season comes Thursday against Bellevue, the defending state champion.

CHURCH FROM 19 church money to have the Pope forgive sins and release a loved one from purgatory. Luther, correctly, saw this as an abuse of power by the Pope and the church, and counter to what scripture says about forgiveness by grace through faith. Luther found in his study of Romans 3:21-28, that forgiveness is through God’s free gift of grace and our faith in Jesus Christ. Not by the clanking of coins in the coffer. Once reformed, the question before the reformers was, “Now what?” And that’s where reformata, semper reformanda

comes into play. Can the church, and by that I mean the universal Church of Jesus Christ, survive if it is not constantly reforming? What do you think? The challenge Christians face for reformata, semper reformanda, reformed and always reforming, is to be constantly reforming; we must realize that some things are constant and some things are not. What is constant? Our belief in Jesus Christ, our belief that salvation is through God’s free gift of grace for all people, not just the ones we might want. Our belief that “for God so loved the world that he gave only son that whoever, not just the ones we might want, but whoever, believes

in him shall not perish but have everlasting life.” Our belief that in baptism we are all claimed as children of God, our belief that the Bible is the revelation of Jesus Christ and God’s good news of salvation and hope for all people, not just the ones we might want, but all people. Those are foundations of Christian faith. Those truths are the essence of Christian faith. Those are truths that cannot be reformed because they are the revelation of God’s unconditional love for all people. This question of reformata, semper reformanda, is not a question for 500 years ago. It is a question for today. Think about the church in your lifetime. The constants

Newport High School 4333 Factoria Blvd, Bellevue WA


CORNER FROM 6 The Enumclaw High athletics office researches the grade-point averages of school athletes and teams with an overall GPA of 3.0 or better are reported to the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association. Just like on the field of competition, teams compete for the title of academic state champion. Enumclaw has been well represented, with its girls wrestling and girls

tennis teams recently claiming state titles. How today’s teens manage to find time to sleep, much less succeed, is a mystery. The academics/athletics tussle competes with the endless drama of high school life, the demands that come with staying on top of pop culture, keeping in touch with friends 24 hours a day through social media and sending/receiving hundreds of text messages daily. Yet some juggle it admirably. Well done, Hornets.

GHOSTS, GOBLINS & GOAT MAN!!? Imagine hiking through the mountains, the spectacular scenery, the solitude, the thrill of spotting a herd of goats and then the creepy realization that one of them was not “quite right”. That’s exactly what happened to a hiker this summer as he was backpacking through the mountains above Ogden, Utah. Getting out his binoculars for a closer look, the hiker realized that the one odd goat was actually a man wearing a crude costume with fake horns, a cloth mask with cut-out eye holes, and a painter’s uniform with fleece. This man was crawling around on his hands and knees, clambering over rocks and bushes in steep terrain pursuing the herd of goats. Turns out “goat man” was actually a 57-year-old hunter from southern California (need I say more) testing his suit to prepare for an upcoming goat hunt in Canada. Although he alarmed the hiker and also the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources, “goat man” was very knowledgable and though preparing for a hunt, put himself at great risk of being shot. This is the time of year when we prepare for things: halloween, harvesting the last of the summer crops, getting back into the routine of school and of course, the anticipation of colder weather. Some of the actions you can take to settle in for “old man winter” are to clean or replace your furnace filters and have your furnace inspected and serviced to make sure it’s in top form for the cold season. Like “goat man”, our service technicians have done a lot of preparation to ensure that you’ll receive the best service possible. They’ve been educated, trained, and wear a uniform. Why, they’ll even put on booties before entering your home! What they will not do, is trick you into something that you don’t need. Our hope is that you always find our service a “treat”! Watch for our monthly advice column brought to you by . . .


Bring us your wrapped trick-or-treating candy and in exchange we will pay you $2 per pound (10 pound max)
