Maple Valley residents want more sports fields and they want them five years ago. The problem, however, is how to pay for it. For the past several City Council meetings, parents, coaches and children involved in local sports organizations have shown up MAPLE in droves, voicVALLEY ing their dismay over the lack of sports fields available in the city. Other than Patrick’s Field at Lake Wilderness Park, which parents and coaches have said is either impractical or unsafe to use, there are no city-owned fields in Maple Valley. It is also prone to flooding during the rainy season, which makes it unusable.

Mom pieces puzzle together with Flipzles BY TJ MARTINELL tmartinell@maplevalleyreporter.com.

In an age when Nintendo 3DS’ and iPads have replaced traditional toys, Vicki Lewis has decided to solve one puzzle with another one. Lewis, a Maple Valley resident, created Flipzles, which became available online in early October. Flipzles are an old fashioned puzzle with a twist. Kids can either solve a puzzle using the thick

wooden pieces on one side, or flip them over and use the people and objects on the back side to play with. Lewis first came up with the idea six years ago when her children were playing with a nativity puzzle her mother had made, with the pieces facing out. Due to the confusing nature of the pieces, she said, she decided to paint the scene on the back, which would allow them to still play with the

characters. Her first design, a house, was so popular with her children, she said she was encouraged to create more. Lewis said she also wanted to give her kids a challenge, something she thinks many puzzles lack. It also provides them with entertainment that doesn’t require a battery or screen. “I feel like so many times there’s plastic toys with batteries, and your kids need to feel like they’re plugged in all the time,” she said. “They’ll use their imagination (with Flipzels) and their brain and they don’t need the bells and whistles.” [ more PUZZLE page 5 ]

Mullet stated he would push for funding to help alleviate traffic congestion on state Route 169. “I think that highway is getting so much use and it can’t handle the amount of use,� Mullet said. “No cities can have the money to improve it.

[4] November 2, 2012 There are no city-owned ballfields in Covington, but there is one under construction across the street from Tahoma High on Southeast 240th Street. The field is being paid for through a variety of sources including grants from the state. The lack of sports fields has been a clear need for Maple Valley residents since 2005, when the city solidified itself as a place for families. The city was named among the top 10 cities for families in the United States by Family Circle magazine in 2011. But according to Bruce Laing in an email he sent to Council member Erin Weaver, the city may become less desirable for young families unless Maple Valley is able to provide fields for the children of the community. Laing, who is involved in Maple Valley Bears Football and Cheer, stated at a City Council meeting that he feels the city has failed to respond to a survey in which residents expressed the need for sports facilities as a priority for the city. He added that the football program has to share a field with soccer teams because there are no football fields. “This issue has to be dealt with now, not years from now,� he wrote to Weaver.

The absence of fields, in conjunction with exploding participation in certain sports programs, may cause some of them to exclude potential athletes, according to Todd Taylor, director for Maple Valley Lacrosse. In a letter to the City Council, he stated that unless something is done soon, the program will be forced to cap registration and turn away players at a time when interest in lacrosse on a national level is increasing rapidly. During public comment period at City Council meetings, residents have criticized the council for what they perceive as a lack of action on the matter. Until the city builds new parks, they said they are forced to drive their children out to other cities where fields are available. Not only is this taking them away from their community, residents say, but when they do play on the fields in the area they risk injury. Several athletes have spoken during the public comment section at City Council meetings explaining how they injured themselves on the fields. Maple Valley approved the Summit Park and Ball field MasterPlan in July 2010 which would be built in three phrases over several years. The plan would include a sports field, a softball-baseball field, in addition to other amenities. Phase one was ex-

pected to start in late 2011 or early this year, but has been postponed. Therein lies the rub, how to pay for new sports fields when, according to the city’s finance director, Maple Valley is already strapped for cash. With the City Council considering a transportation benefit district to pay to maintain road infrastructure, council members have stated during meetings that those who voice their concerns during public comment leave right before the city’s financial situation is discussed, which they feel would help residents gain a better understanding as to why progress has stalled. In response to Laing’s email, Weaver wrote that the Summit Master Plan would have to be financed through a bond measure, but after the April 2011 Tahoma School District’s construction bond measure failed to pass, the council believes it is unlikely the city would be able to pass a similar bond measure to build parks facilities. The school district’s bond measure would have raised $120 million to build a new elementary school, additions at Tahoma High, as well as make repairs across the school district. The Summit Ballfield plan is estimated to cost $18 million. The city’s budget in 2013 is expected to be $19 million.

Picking the perfect partners for your fall plants

[ PUZZLE from page 1] Eventually, her friends asked her to make puzzles for their families, which proved to be too much due to the painstaking process. Lewis hand cuts and paints the individual pieces. Typically, it takes her several weeks to create a new puzzle design. To help with the production, she licensed the puzzles to a toy company, but discontinued it when the company was sold. At that point Lewis and her husband, who has a finance background, decided to convert it from a passion into a business venture.

Community Notes MAPLE VALLEY CREATIVE ARTS CENTER BENEFIT FRIDAY NIGHT The Maple Valley Creative Arts Center will host its annual benefit at 7 p.m. Friday at Lake Wilderness Lodge.

HOT ITALIANS FOR AUTUMN BEAUTY 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 â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Goldflameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; are shrubs just as drought tolerant and easy to grow in full sun, but the spiraeas also offer summer flowers. For a more shaded area consider nandina â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sienna Sunriseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 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

Although they got the business up and running, one thing Lewis said she found disappointing was the lack of interest from American manufacturers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had a few people interested,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was hard to get them to respond and communicate with me and to give me the information. When we went to the person in China they were quick to respond.â&#x20AC;? Additionally, they had to come up with a marketing plan, a business model and build a website, as well as learn how to use the ever increasing number of social media outlets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I could just be an artist, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be happy,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I have to market them in order to afford to make the

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 youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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 youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be able to sit indoors and enjoy the show for years to come.

Take a step forward and legalize marijuana route, and live quiet lives of insignificance. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve taken that route many times myself. This time seemed different, however. I serve on a local planning commission, and when the issue of allowing zoning for medical marijuana dispensaries came up, I voted yes, in the majority. Of course, the vote was largely symbolic since it was only a recommendation to the Decision Makers, who subsequently ignored it. Again, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easier to take the safe route. But now, you and I have a rare opportunity to influence the national conversation on marijuana with Initiative 502. Californians

might normally take the lead on this issue, but they are usually regarded as the crazy aunt who mutters endlessly to herself and only flushes once a week. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have that reputation. I grew up on the east coast, where the Other Washington is never part of the news. No controversy, no identity, and no reputation, except for an oversupply of rain and mediocre sports teams. Would a yes vote on this initiative give us a California-like identity? I tend to think it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, any more than North Dakota would if it passed a similar initiative. Rather, people in other states would likely be curious, and would wait to see how the experiment

worked. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still living in an experiment of self-government in this country, and the prospect of such a direct influence alone would be enough to get me to vote yes. Are we mature enough to handle liberty, or are we unable to control our impulses, requiring more regulation? Back in the early 19th Century, we drank. A lot. Consumption was about four gallons of pure alcohol (200 proof) per person, per year. The temperance movement began due to alcoholismâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s impact on society, and it reduced drinking to less than half of that. Prohibition attempted to take that further, but it failed. Initially, alcohol

consumption declined, but by the end of Prohibition it had actually increased. Once Prohibition was repealed, we went back to our regular drinking levels. The lesson here is, social pressure worked, and moral legislation didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. I think the biggest and most valid concern of legalization is that kids will have easier access to marijuana. Personally, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe that is true. High school kids that I talk to say marijuana is easier to get than alcohol. Most of them donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bother with it because they see the kids who do use it, and they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be like them. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very worried about those kids. Their potential for a good life has likely been destroyed.

Sometimes their parents care, and sometimes they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. These are anecdotal stories of course, but they highlight the fact that we are not winning the drug war with prohibition. We can win it by changing our culture. We can win it with social pressure. But keeping marijuana illegal enables us to be lazy citizens by claiming itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a law enforcement problem. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any incentive to create social boundaries for responsible use. As a result, we are letting the criminal element define those boundaries. That has to change. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for us to take another step towards a mature citizenry, and vote yes on Initiative 502.

COMMENTARY

A little over a year ago in this space, I wrote about Kent city officials who were forced to shut down marijuana dispensaries due to state and federal laws prohibiting them. But then in January, state legislators and the governor delivered a set of messy guidelines to allow them to exist. Those guidelines turned out to be a line-item veto disaster, and the law didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help city or county councils at all. The councils in our area declined to participate, and instead used the excuse that marijuana is still banned under federal law. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t blame them. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s far easier to go the safe

Maple Valley is full of families with kids who play sports. For as long as Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve lived in this city, eight and a half years, as well as for the seven years and change this paper has existed Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve written about the fact the city doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have enough places for all these kids to play soccer, lacrosse, baseball, football, and so on. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve written about the efforts Maple Valley has made to get parks built. The lack of fields has come to a head for a number of residents. Reporter TJ Martinell, who attends Maple Valley City Council meetings on Monday evenings, said those who wants parks and recreation space in this city have attended at least three straight meetings. They have packed the board room at the Tahoma School District headquarters where the City Council meets. During public comment they have asked the council why it hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been more responsive to residents who have filled out surveys telling the city they want fields. They wanted to know what the hold up was in building fields. And they asked why the city has done nothing with the master plan for the Summit Ballfield site, for which a plan was approved in July 2010. Bruce Laing, who spoke to me earlier this year about changes made to the Maple Valley Bears Junior Football and Cheer Association, sent me an email conversation between him and Councilwoman Erin Weaver. Laingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s email sums up the frustration of many in the community who have seen the population grow here and homes fill up with young families with no place for their children to play organized sports. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My children work out on fields that are dangerous, period, while you all tout what a wonderful place Maple Valley is to raise a family and hold up an article from a magazine as proof that you are doing your part. Nonsenseâ&#x20AC;Ś,â&#x20AC;? Laing wrote in response to Weaver. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Running a city is very much like running a business. You have to

Arguably, the most â&#x20AC;&#x153;dangerousâ&#x20AC;? year of a young personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life is the first year in which she or he drives. The statistics are tragically convincing: In 2009 in America, 10 teens died daily in auto accidents. The risks for teen drivers are enormous, and that is why State Farm Insurance Company launched its Celebrate My Drive Campaign to educate young drivers. And there is no question that knowledge of safe driving strategies and then effective practice with those strategies saves lives â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the lives of our children. At Kentlake, we are thankful that State Farm has acted proactively to increase safe driving awareness and education for teens. In the spring of 2012, our school was selected to participate in Celebrate My Drive. We accepted this challenge. We purposely moved our homecoming back a

How do you ever intend to increase the tax revenue base for the city if you are just going to make excuses as to why things cannot be done? What is next? Costco, Winco, Home Depot, another tanning salon, teriyaki shop, etc.? Great.â&#x20AC;? Later in the email Weaver points out that many who are concerned about the lack of progress by the city to get ballfields built donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stick around for the regular budget reports provided by Maple Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finance director. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize the city doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the money to pay for fields. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s property: Summit Ballfields southwest of Four Corners that the city purchased from the Tahoma School District in 2006 and the Legacy Site on Maple Valley Highway across from Rock Creek Elementary. But, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no way to pay for it. Maple Valley has tried to get grant money. There has been talk of putting a construction bond measure to voters to cover the costs. According to numbers provided by Greg Brown, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parks and recreation director, in 2010, the estimate for the first phase of the week so that we could focus our studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; attention meeting the State Farm challenge.

Our leadership teachers and students set up lunch time voting stations that offered those without laptops access to the State Farm web site. Daily we announced Celebrate My Drive and encouraged our students to visit the web site and to vote. At open house, we encouraged our parents to support us in this challenge, and provided sites for voting in our commons. The end result was a successful bid, but the true victory came in form of support and faith in the potential of those who work, learn, and grow at Kentlake High School.

project was about $8.5 million. At that time the plan, if everything fell into place, was to start construction sometime in 2011 or this year. That hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happened. So, the question is what are residents who want fields â&#x20AC;&#x201D; something I consider a legitimate want when living in a 15-year-old city with more than 23,000 residents â&#x20AC;&#x201D; willing to do to make fields happen. In early October I attended the Maple Valley Town Hall meeting. At the end Mayor Bill Allison told the crowd in Lake Wilderness Lodge the city may need to make cuts in the budget. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure that message was picked up on by those in attendance but I know it stuck out to me. And as TJ has reported on, the city has spent down a considerable amount of its reserves, something it can no longer do. In a cash-strapped city with a finite revenue source from home construction and sales as well as a tax base considerably smaller than Covington, which has a thriving downtown business core, one answer is to partner. Looking to its neighbor to the west, Covington has gotten grants from the state, a number [ more HILL page 8 ]

victory illustrates the degree of hope alive and well in our young people. The question now is how to invest the grant money in our students. We plan to form a committee of students, faculty, and parents to determine effective ways to support educational priorities. Some of these priorities include teen safe driving education, scholarships, anti-bullying workshops, and food-for-the weekend programs for needy students. These represent a few, but not all, of the ways in which our students might benefit from the grant to Kentlake. We are deeply thankful and appreciative for State Farmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Celebrate My Drive. Raising awareness and educating our students about driving strategies help teens make it home safely. For parents whose kids drive, that is a big deal. For our teachers and community members, providing opportunities for students to be successful academically so that they can productively contribute to society in a substantial way, that is a big deal for all of us who live, work, and thrive in the Kent School District.

Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be fooled by yes on Prop. 1 Truth is not what the vote yes on Prop. 1 group relies upon. They have sent out a letter citing salaries for four Black Diamond city staff positions saying that a city manager would institute reforms and slash or eliminate these salaries. Well, guess what â&#x20AC;&#x201C; these positions are paid for by a grant from YarrowBay. These salaries do not affect the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget. The funding agreement with YarrowBay allows the

[ HILL from page 6] them to pay for the first phase of construction of its Community Park. The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first ballfields should open next year. Right across the street from Tahoma High. But, Covington officials sought out and got the support from their state legislators as well as other agencies to help pay for that as well as raised the utility tax to cover costs. Laing thinks Maple Valley can be even more creative. He encourages partnerships in his email. He pushes Weaver and the

city to function normally without having to pay for these positions and YarrowBay, by the terms on the agreement, has no control over the activities of these employees. But the vote yes on Prop. 1 (group) believes they can fool enough people with their misinformation that we will vote to change our form of government. These city employees serve you and are able to work with non-YarrowBay clients. The city benefits from not having to pay for them. For example, if a Black Diamond citizen needs a

council to â&#x20AC;&#x153;roll up your sleeves and engage in action instead of making continued excuses.â&#x20AC;? I identify with his frustration. One thing I do not miss about going to Maple Valley City Council meetings is the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inability to make major decisions. I remember writing stories about how the council decided to push a decision off to the next meeting. Again. Even though four and a half years later the makeup of the council has changed significantly, what TJ describes to me after council meetings sounds much like

me to see the stuff coming from independent groups saying that Mark Mullet supports raising taxes. That is simply not true and is far from the truth. During my time on the Issaquah Council I have been impressed that Mark looks for efficiencies in government to balance the budget not extra tax revenue. Mark has voted against increasing the property tax on Issaquah residents every year since he was elected. Mark will bring the same fiscal responsibility he has shown on the Council to Olympia to balance our state budget. I encourage you to vote for Mark Mullet for State Senate.

Fred Butler Issaquah City Council

Over the past few weeks I have read several misleading letters regarding Novemberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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 â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;yesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; vote by us changes our government to a councilmanager 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.

what I used to sit through. Why, he asks, are they afraid to make decisions and I tell TJ itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s complicated. But this is a time, as Laing said, to do something. There is a master plan for this project. There are people in the community, like Laing, who are willing to help that vision become reality. And then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the possibility the school district may do a land swap to get property in the donut hole, a 156-acre chunk of land owned by King County in the heart of the city which is unincorporated, for a

new Tahoma High School. That property, if sited where the district wants it, would bump up against the Summit Ballfield site. Partnering with Tahoma Schools is one way to make it happen, but I think Laing is right. I think the city could take a page from Covingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s play book and go beyond the obvious partnerships as well make the most of its relationships with 5th District legislators, especially since two of three will be new to the Legislature when the next session begins, whomever those two are may be willing and

eager to start off with a bang by getting money for fields. There is so much potential but also so much pentup demand. If someone released the valve to unleash that demand amazing things could happen. I just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what the catalyst may be to prod the city into action. From what I can tell the council and staff have to feel pressured or threatened to get things done. So, I guess itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for those who really want to see more fields in this city to put on the pressure but, I

There is new hope for people with chronic leg wounds that have a hard time healing. It is called spray-on skin, and it is showing a lot of promise. In studies, people with shallow leg wounds called venous ulcers that occur as a result of poor circulation benefited greatly from the treatment. Venous ulcers develop on the inside of the lower leg. Standard treatment includes compression bandages and sometimes skin grafts. If they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t heal, the ulcers can become chronic, and the longer it takes for them to heal, the harder the healing process becomes. Interestingly, the sprayed-on skin cells seemed to help the damaged tissue figure out how to regenerate. In the studies mentioned above, spray-on skin sped up the healing of wounds by an average of 21 days. Leg ulcers are difficult to treat. Compression bandages, the conventional treatment, will heal only about 70 percent of ulcers after six months. Other options include taking skin from somewhere else on the body and grafting it over the wound. Spray-on skin offers new hope to patients with leg ulcers.

Decayed or decaying baby teeth can potentially represent active infection in the mouth. Anytime there is infection in the body or mouth, it requires immediate attention by a physician or dentist, respectively. Long term, if baby teeth are left to rot, fall out, or get extracted, there is greater potential for permanent teeth to grow in and shift requiring future orthodontic care.

I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yesâ&#x20AC;? campaign really cares about the amount of the salaries â&#x20AC;&#x201D; I believe they want to replace the current, experienced â&#x20AC;&#x153;administrationâ&#x20AC;? with their own inexperienced puppets. I asked the mayor if she ever obstructed the city council from putting items on the agenda. She stated that the opposite is true â&#x20AC;&#x201D; she always accommodates their requests â&#x20AC;&#x201D; she has to! Even the issue about changing the form of government (â&#x20AC;&#x153;a backdoor recall on the mayorâ&#x20AC;? is what Councilmember Goodwin called it) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; was put on the agenda. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yesâ&#x20AC;? campaign wants you to believe the councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s powers are stifled by the mayor. This is not true â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the council and mayor have a checks and balance system. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why we need to keep both of them. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yesâ&#x20AC;? campaign is full of misinformation led by non-residents who want to be in control of the future of Black Diamond.

Claiming to have done work that you did not do is also an insult to those who have spent the time and energy becoming accredited in a field or trade. People like my husband, Mark Mullet, who graduated summa cum laude with his undergraduate degree and balanced work/family life while earning his masters.

still 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, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We would lose our checks and balances.â&#x20AC;? But we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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 isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t very balanced. To my fellow Black Diamond neighbors, please learn more before you vote. Ask questions.

I believe once you do, you will come to the same decision I and so many others have: to vote yes on Proposition 1.

ton and the U.S. have adopted the council-manager form of government. There is another reason to prefer the council-manager form. This allows the city to hire an experienced professional to handle the day-to-day business of the city. This manager is not a politician but he or she carries out the policies of the council members who are elected by the voters. This form of government is far more representative and balanced than one that vests all power in a mayor who may or may not be qualified to run the city. Some have suggested that this form is more expensive. However, the mayor has already hired a city administrator to conduct the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business. A city manager would replace the current administrator or it could be the same person. Either way, the point is that he or she would carry out the policies of the elected council, not just the agenda of the mayor only. Some have stated that the mayor-council form has served the city well for many years. This may be true, but the city is changing dramatically. This is our opportunity to adopt a form of government that is equipped to deal with this change. A â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;yesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; vote on Proposition 1 will ensure representative government by preventing all the administrative power being vested in a single politician.

four councilmembers have served less than a year on the council and are just now beginning to go through their first budget cycle. They are just learning where the money comes from or how itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spent. They have already made decisions to spend funds that come out of the general fund â&#x20AC;&#x201D; your taxpayer dollars â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that were not budgeted for last year. Such as spending $5,000 to put this measure on the ballot and spending $8,000 to stop the construction of a new fire station closer to the heart of the city that would be under construction by now. What other decisions will they make that are not good for Black Diamond that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to pay for? We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t risk finding out. Vote no on Prop. 1 to avoid this future mistakes. I urge you to not dabble in the experiment of changing our proven form of government at the whim of a small, vocal group of residents and out-of-towners who want to tell you how to run our city. Our current form of government has been in place for 53 years in Black Diamond and is used in over 80 percent of cities in Washington State. Vote no on Proposition 1.

Hargrove ethics complaint valid Two weeks ago in this paper, reporter TJ Martinell sought to downplay the ethics violations of State Representative Mark Hargrove.

In his defense of Mr. Hargrove, Mr. Martinell ignored crucial parts of the ethics investigation; sought to portray the complainant as politically driven; and concluded that Mr. Hargroveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actions were akin to failing to come to a complete stop at a red light. These conclusions are neither accurate nor supported by fact. In its stipulation and order, the bipartisan Ethics Board found Mr. Hargrove didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t simply misuse his legislative email and phone number as this editorial page suggested. The Board found that, after being advised by staff that nonpublic funds must be used for the purpose of campaigning for election, Mr. Hargrove filmed a commercial in a non-public space in the Capitol building using charts produced with taxpayer dollars and listing contact information, which directed viewers to a state employee, all for the benefit of a political campaign. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a clear violation of the law of which any legislator should be aware. All lawmakers are warned when they first arrive in Olympia about the no tolerance policy concerning the misuse taxpayer funds for campaigning. Concerning the timing of the complaint, citizens are encouraged to read ethics report 2012 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; No. 1 for themselves. The complaint against Mr. Hargrove was filed one month after the ad went up on YouTube, not seven. And in fact, it was filed within mere days of the adâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s discovery on YouTube. To imply that the complaint was intentionally delayed seven months, without attempting to contact anyone to confirm that issue, is at its best bad reporting, and at its worst a blatant attempt to coverup or mischaracterize Mr. Hargroveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s misdeeds.

Community Notes COUNTY OFFERS PROGRAM FOR VETERANS King County is stepping up to help heroes in uniform with a new veterans internship initiative, called the Heroes Employment Reintegration Opportunity (HERO) Program. The program offers six-month paid internships to qualified veterans, along with support services tailored to men and women re-entering the civilian world. The HERO Program is open to any military veteran who meets King County Veteranâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Program (KCVP) qualifications. After a competitive selection process, each participant will receive an hourly wage for 30 hours of work per week for six months. They will also be provided with a comprehensive support plan, including connections to other community resources for veterans. During and after their six-month stint, HERO participants will receive one-on-one assistance in writing their resume and searching for jobs. They will also get help applying for any King County job openings they qualify for. King County has about 137,000 veterans, and that number is increasing due to the presence of military installations like Joint Base Lewis McChord (JBLM) in nearby Pierce County. According to the human resources command at JBLM, about 6,000 servicemembers transition out of the base each year. Many of these new veterans stay in the Puget Sound region, so programs

Of course not, and no one is making that assertion, but neither is it akin to a traffic ticket. The bipartisan Legislative Ethics Board, whose lead counsel is a Republican, found that Mr. Hargrove knowingly violated state law. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a violation of public trust.

MAPLE VALLEY FIREFIGHTERS DON PINK Maple Valley Fire and Life Safety participated in the departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inaugural â&#x20AC;&#x153;Caring Enough to Wear Pinkâ&#x20AC;? Cancer Awareness campaign. Instead of their traditional navy blue uniform shirts during the week of Oct. 22-26 , firefighters wore pink T-shirts. In a three-year study completed in 2005 by the University of Cincinnati, researchers concluded that firefighters face a 102 percent greater chance of contracting cancer than any other type of worker. Cancer is directly linked to the occupational employment of a firefighter due to the exposure of smoke, fumes, carcinogens, poisons, toxins, and chemical substances that occur on the job. Fire departments throughout Washington and the country have worked hard to develop presumptive rules that help provide the necessary medical care and support these men and women need during their battle.

dismissed the complaint as meritless, which they very often do when a personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intent is not clear, the violation is insignificant, or in cases when the complaint is simply politically motivated. Instead, the Board found Mr. Hargrove, as an elected official, violated state law and fined him for his actions. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a serious matter, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the reason we have such laws, and enforcement agencies, in the first place.

November 2012

Firefighters are here to serve Whether you are the person calling 911 in a dire emergency or the person touring the station with your child, your firefighters are here to serve you. I was employed almost 30 years as a Fire Inspector for the Renton Fire Department and now almost three years currently serving you as a Fire Commissioner for Maple Valley Fire & Life Safety. Not only have I worked as a public servant, I have also witnessed the extraordinary care provided to my loved one by our Maple Valley Fire Departmentâ&#x20AC;Ś through which I have gained a great appreciation for the many things they do. My interaction during my loved oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time of need was my initial introduction to our Fire Department. Although I knew how to get to the hospital, it was a very stressful time and thinking clearly wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really possible. The Firefighters were calm and consoling when they handed me a map to the hospital, which they carry on the apparatus for these occasions. This may seem insignificant, but it was one of the most important things they did for me. No matter what situation you may find yourself in they are

there to help, whether it is rendering medical aid, putting out a fire, or just be sympathetic in a time of need. Our Firefighters are dedicated to meeting the needs of the public, but they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop there. They go above and beyond in areas that you may not realize. The Maple Valley Firefighters volunteer their time off duty to ensure successful events such as the Annual Open House, Maple Valley Days, the Jerry Woods Holiday Engine, Lake Wilderness Fishing Derby, Make a Difference Day, MDA Fundraiser, Kids-Fest and others. Furthermore, the volunteerism is not limited to just our staff. Oftentimes their spouses, significant others, sons, and daughters also participate in these events. I believe that this participation is due to the sense of family in a larger sense and their desire to help others. When not responding on an emergency, they are still working for you in some capacity. While on shift they also work on the needs of the District and ensure the publicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s safety, education and health through programs like installing reflective metal address signs to homes that are difficult to find, installing smoke detectors or key boxes, providing

From the Chiefâ&#x20AC;Ś Glucose (blood sugar) and Blood Pressure checks, doing school visits, station tours, teaching first aid and CPR, and hosting Tricks and Trucks at the Community Center. They ensure that the proper equipment is always ready to go and they are geared with anything that they might need from specialized equipment, maps to the hospital, infant hats for the imminent birth situations, or as simply as teddy bears to help a child through a difficult time. Some of these items, such as the Teddy Bears, are donated from the Maple Valley Firefighters Benevolent Fund; which is a non-profit organization, managed by five Maple Valley Fire & Life Safety employees who donate their time to the committee. These funds are used to provide assistance to members of the community and those who serve the community during their time of need. So the next time you look at a Firefighter, know that they do much more thank put out fires and respond to emergencies. They are committed to our community and are there to help out whenever and wherever they can. I hope that you too can have the same appreciation for them as I do, without being at the receiving end of their care. Camille Walls

South King County Regional Training Consortium Training is one of the most important aspects in the fire service because it prepares our Firefighters to skillfully respond to emergencies. In fact, our staff train for hours nearly every day of the year to guarantee that when 911 is called that they are prepared. The reason for such a heavy training regimen is to ensure that staff not only have the knowledge and skills in how to respond to any emergency, but that their performance comes instinctually. For this year we are on a pace of more than 8,200 hours of training! Oftentimes, we do not have the luxury to stop and take the time to research a problem or garner input before making a decision. As discussed in a previous article, we are an all hazards fire department. This means that we respond to all emergencies such as; aid calls, fires, motor vehicle accidents, rescues,

hazardous conditions, and more. Furthermore, there are instances where we do not have actual experience with some of the rarer incidents that we respond upon. During these times extensive training is crucial. By repetitive drilling on different emergencies we can become skilled in responses that do not occur very often, many of which also pose significant risk. We call these events high risk, low frequency emergencies. That way when we have a life threatening emergency, even if we have never encountered it before in real life, we can rely on our training and make good decisions quickly. Until recently we managed all of our training on our own. However, that changed in 2010 when we worked collaboratively with the City of Kent and SeaTac Fire Departments to form the

South King County Regional Training Consortium. This consortium combined the training divisions of all three fire departments into one and located them at Station 74 in Kent. There were many reasons for joining together, but the two biggest motivations were to improve training and save money. Combining the three Departments provides for better training opportunities by grouping talent and pooling resources. This results in experts training others in the consortium regardless of which fire department they are affiliated. Another product of this program is that all personnel are in better sync with each other, which helps us to work together on incidents more efficiently. Joining the consortium has also allowed us to reduce overall personnel costs. Prior to the consortium we employed three staff members in the training division; a Training Chief, a Training Captain, and an Administrative Assistant. Currently we have been

Your fire department, Maple Valley Fire and Life Safety, is working diligently to ensure that we are able to continue providing the quality emergency services our community expects, deserves and funds. As we began to prepare the 2013 budget, it became apparent that the current level of service that we enjoy, and are proud of, will not be sustainable due to the continued decline in property values. While the 2013 budget can be balanced with continued internal measures, some very difficult decisions lay ahead in 2014 and beyond. Fire districts in Washington State are predominantly funded through property taxes. These taxes are based on the assessed property valuation of each property within the fire districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boundaries. Fire districts with a minimum of one fulltime employee are allowed to levy up to $1.50 per $1,000 of assessed value. When the organization is at this cap, such as we are now, as the homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assessed valuation drops so does the corresponding dollar amount collected for the local fire district. For our Fire Department 88% of our revenue comes from property tax with the additional 12% coming from other sources such as the King County EMS levy, transport billing, grants, and other miscellaneous sources. In 2009, before the real estate values began to drop, our Fire Districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assessed valuation was 5.4 billion dollars. We have a projection for 2013 assessed valuation of 3.9 billion dollars, resulting in another substantial loss of funding for the district. We recently received the Districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s property tax revenue amounts from the King County Assessorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office for 2013. Taking into account all new construction, a further drop in revenue of $559,383 for the 2013 tax year is being anticipated. Over

able to reduce those positions to just one, a Training Captain, with additional funds to cover administrative expenses. This has resulted in a savings of over $158,000 annually, which is especially important as we continue to struggle with the impacts of the current economy. We are constantly working on trying to stretch our funding to address shortfalls and this is just one example of greater efficiency. This training model has successfully provided higher levels of training for less cost and has attracted interest from other fire departments. The training division of the Tukwila Fire Department

the last 4 years the District has realized a drop in assessed valuation of 27% and a corresponding drop in revenue now totaling $1,016,492 per year. During this period of time we have reduced staff by seven positions (15%), received concessions from staff, cut programs, and emergency response personnel on-duty. The Board of Commissioners directed us to protect the level of services we provide and do what we could internally, without going to the voters for additional funding while the economy recovered. Unfortunately, with the significant drop in revenue for next year, additional options must be considered as we will no longer be able to provide the current level of service beginning in 2014. The Board of Commissioners has directed the staff to prepare and to put forward to the voters an excess levy measure for the spring of 2013. The excess levy will be used to prevent further personnel cuts and reestablish aid car staffing. They have also asked that the Citizen Advisory Committee be reconvened for input and to be the sounding block for moving forward. While itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unfortunate we have to consider additional funding measures to maintain the current operations, it has always been our priority to provide the citizens the opportunity to dictate service before substantial changes are made. In the spring of 2013, the citizens will be asked to provide the direction for your fire department to follow. I can guarantee you that regardless of the outcome of a spring excess levy, MVFLS will continue to provide the highest quality emergency services consistent with available funding. As always, we appreciate the opportunity to serve you. Brad W. Doerflinger

has become a member of the consortium and there are two others in the area that are now considering joining as well. If you have any questions about our training division or our role in the consortium, please contact me at mattc@maplevalleyfire.org. If you have an organization such as a home ownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s association, etc. and you would like me to attend a meeting or event I would be more than happy to do so. Remember to change the batteries in your smoke detectors when you change your clocks! Thank you and be safe! Matt Cowan 689078

COVINGTON COMMUNITY PARK The 80 day dry stretch should not be the only thing remembered about the summer of 2012. This summer also kicked off the construction of the first phase of the Covington Community Park project. This historical event began the development of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first new large community park which includes both active and passive recreation. Construction on the 30 acres of park property, located at the southwest corner of SE 240th Street and 180th Avenue SE, began on July 20th by Goodfellow Bros Incorporated out of Maple Valley. This first phase of the park development includes a full size soccer field with irrigateion. The field also includes an under drainage system that allows the water to drain well and help to prevent ponding on the surface. The project will construct an asphalt parking lot adjacent to the soccer field that also provides access to nearly a mile of ADA accessible trails within the forested portion of the property to the south. Although the project did not begin until nearly the end of July, the great weather and the efforts of the contractor allowed the site to get graded, the soccer field prepped, the irrigation system installed View of Covington Community Park and the field seeded by the soccer field after grass seeding beginning of October. This allows the grass to germinate and have a good root growth with the possibility of it being ready for limited play in the summer of 2013. In the coming weeks the contractor will be paving portions of the trail as well as the parking lot located on the west side of the soccer field. They will also be pouring concrete for all the walkways that provide View of the ADA accessible trail access from the parking lot to in the forested area. the soccer field. Although in reality most will still remember this beautiful summer in terms of where they went and what they experienced. Next summer, we hope those experiences include enjoying a beautiful day at Covington Community Park.

URBAN FORESTRY Covington to Develop Strategic Plan for Trees The City is preparing a strategic plan for trees. Yes, trees. Trees are very important assets to a community and as Covingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population has grown 40 percent over the past 15 years, so has the number of trees being planted on new arterials, along neighborhood streets and in parks. By obtaining a $10,000 grant from the Washington State Department of Natural Resources, the City is developing whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s known as an Urban Forestry Strategic Plan. Not only do trees provide shade and shelter for animals, they help absorb storm water, cool the ground and streams, and improve property values. However, trees also have maintenance costs, replacement costs and can be a liability as they age or if they are damaged. This plan will help provide clearer direction to city departments and cost effective management of public trees. The public is encouraged to attend an open house on Wednesday, Nov. 7 to preview and comment on the first draft of the new plan. The open house will be held in the community room at Covington City Hall beginning at 5:30 p.m. For more information, please contact Public Works Director Glenn Akramoff at gakramoff@covingtonwa.gov or (253) 480-2400. 695257

think someone would ever voluntarily pick something up; they havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t done it to this point in their lives. I do realize in addition to simple laziness, sometimes those other people who live in the house with me just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what to do with

COMMENTARY

There is always some abandoned object lying around the house: an emptied box, half-full glasses of water or lunch containers, mail brought in and never sorted. I get tired of being the pick-up queen, so often Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll ignore said objects hoping the originating owner will take care of it. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know why I

things and my family has gotten used to that state of being. But I have to admit, I sometimes ignore the objects because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not always sure what to do with them either, nor am I sure who it belongs to so I can tell them to take care of it. There is a rule in this house, if you grab a hold of it, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your responsibil-

ity to put it away or throw it away; if the cat throws up in front of you itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your responsibility to clean it up; if the garbage smell is bothering you, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your responsibility to take it out; if you need a clean shirt, pants, or underwear before laundry day, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your responsibility to wash them. The catch is, the person actually has to claim the object, be caught near it or admit they need it. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably not surprising that my family notices little that happens in the house, admits something is annoying them or that they need something outside of everyday necessities. They never notice the garbage, they swear they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see or hear the cat throw up, they never need clothes outside of laundry day and if random objects appear in their line of vision they never stake a claim. I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a trait they are born with. When my oldest daughter was a toddler and I tried to get her to help me pick up her toys, she said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why? We can just step over it.â&#x20AC;? So either my housekeeping skills rubbed off on her in utero or itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an inherent trait. Once a week or so I snap out of the daydream that someone else will actually take care of the random objects and issues that trouble my housekeeping senses (though I admit they are few) and I start picking up. I grab the first object or issue in my path and deal with it; making my way through the house one item at a time: I rip the address label off the box, shred the label, crush the box and take it to the recycle bin; I

approach the abandoned lunch container, clothed in a hazmat suit, empty said container in the garbage, determine if it can be saved and either toss it or run the dishwasher (whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s full or not) to combat the smell and sanitize; when tackling unidentified smells, I tie up the kitchen garbage bag and grab the compost bucket and take them both outside to their respective waste receptacles, bring the compost bucket in and soak it in soap and bleach to rid it of any lingering smells; I gather up the piles of mail my husband separated into neat, but illogical piles on the kitchen and coffee tables, take them to my office and slog through each one, separating bills from junk mail, tearing and shredding their labels and depositing the leftover debris in the recycle bin; I hang up coats, gather laundry and tackle the kitchen. When I finish the battle, remove my hazmat suit and look around, I realize it probably took more energy to ignore the objects of offense than it did to take care of them. But I can assure you, the next time a random object appears, I will ignore it and fire up the daydream.

For the second time in school history Kentwood finishes regular season undefeated capped off with win over Kentlake BY KRIS HILL khill@covingtonreporter.com

Dane Manio-Hernandez capped off the regular season of his senior year as quarterback for Kentwoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s football team with two touchdown passes and a one-yard scoring run to help secure a 31-21 win over rival Kentlake Oct. 25. Not only did the Conquerors win the game, they finished undefeated in the South Puget Sound League 4A North division. This is just the second time in school history the Conks football team finished the regular season undefeated. The first time was in 2010. Beating Kentlake was the icing on the cake. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since my freshman year, Kentlake has been our biggest rival,â&#x20AC;? Manio-Hernandez said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is our biggest rival so hopefully weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll keep chugging, have a good week at practice and just do what we do.â&#x20AC;?

control of the game until the second half, though. Kentlake scored first when Riley Higgins ran it in from 21 yards out with 3 minutes, 50 seconds left on the clock in the first quarter. Less than a minute of game clock passed before Jackson Huerta hauled in a 58-yard touchdown pass from Manio-Hernandez to tie the game at 7-7. But Kentlake answered when Steffin Church connected with Caleb Mathena on a 9-yard toss for a touchdown to make it 14-7. Huerta, who has scored on big pass plays and punt returns this season, tied the game up when he ran untouched by the Falcons defense into the end zone from 11 yards out to make it 14-14. With 3:24 left in the first half the Conks took their first lead of the game when Manio-Hernandez ran it in from one yard out. That

play was set up by a 20-yard carry by Dominic Lindstrom that put the Conks on the one. It looked like Kentlakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Marshall Jones pulled in a touchdown pass from Church with less than 10 seconds left but the officials ruled that he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come down with the ball in the end zone. A Mitchell Cox field goal from 40 yards made it 2414 Kentwood early in the third quarter but Kentlake answered with a 12-yard touchdown run by Riley Higgins to cut the lead to three. Kentwood started its next drive at its own 31 yard line. A big run for the Conks followed by a penalty on the Falcons for unnecessary roughness put Kentwood on the Kentlake 41. Two plays later Devon Greenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 17-yard reception moved Kentwood to the 30. Then just when it looked [ more UNDEFEATED page 17 ]

If you are a little apprehensive about going to the dentist, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not alone. Fifty percent of Americans say they experience anxiety over visiting the dentist.

With a 1-0 win Thursday afternoon over Kentwood, Tahomaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s girls soccer team completed its first undefeated regular season in at least a decade. Senior winger Kaysha Darcy scored the lone goal for the Bears late in the first half. Darcy ran up the right side of the field then took a



ball from Bailey Martoncik somewhere between the 40 and 45 yard line. She then dribbled the ball through Kentwoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back line across the field. As she got to the left side of the field, Darcy set herself up to take the shot. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I turned my hips and then I shot,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then it floated over (the goal keeperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s) finger tips.

Manio-Hernandez was also able to count on his defense to hold off Kentlakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s high-powered offense which scored 76 points early in the season against Puyallup and 49 points against Tahoma a week earlier. In the second half Kentwood had a pair of defensive stands in the red zone which kept Kentlake out of the end zone. Beating Kentlake was critical, Manio-Hernandez said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very important,â&#x20AC;? Manio-Hernandez said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bragging rights in Kent.â&#x20AC;? Huerta said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also something the team can build on with the top seed out of the SPSL North heading into the district round of the playoffs. Kentwood takes on Arlington at 7 p.m. Friday at French Field. A year ago Kentwood lost to Kentlake by a point as the Falcons went on to take the top spot out of the North after going undefeated.

Huerta said the Conks were motivated to improve after last year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the work we put in this off season,â&#x20AC;? Huerta said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We knew our goals.â&#x20AC;? Winning the division and getting a better seed into the playoffs is a good start. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re small but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to fly around and play fast,â&#x20AC;? Huerta said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The other teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to know they played Kentwood at the end of the night.â&#x20AC;? Manio-Hernandez, who has started for Kentwood since the end of his sophomore year, is ready to prove to the rest of the state what this team can do. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to bring it for the playoffs,â&#x20AC;? Manio-Hernandez said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a small team with a big heart. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t doubt us.â&#x20AC;?

Maple Valley Boy Scout John George from BSA Troop 594 of the Cedar Grange has earned the rank of Eagle Scout. George joined Troop 594 in 2006 where

he held various leadership positions over the years including Assistant Senior Patrol Leader. George worked his way through 21 merit badges while on outings with Troop 594 as well as at summer camps. He recently earned his BSA Life Guard Certification while at Camp Parsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s this past summer. He has also led his patrol in earning the National Honor Patrol award twice, an

award that requires a patrol be active outside of Troop meetings. George was elected by his fellow troop members to Order of The Arrow in 2010, which is scoutingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s national honor society. This is a group of Boy Scouts that give back to the community as well as support their local Boy Scout troops. Over the last several years George also helped support the Maple Valley

Food Bank through food drives in the community. During Georgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time in Troop 594 he enjoyed various activities including summer camps, hikes, caving, eagle watching, and camping. Among his fondest scouting memories have been participating in three 50 miler hikes over the past three years. The final requirement to earn Eagle rank is to perform an Eagle Scout

Using preventive measures to save health care costs More and more companies are enrolling their workforce in health and wellness programs to cut staggering health care costs, reduce absenteeism and foster productivity as well as morale and loyalty, according to several studies on recent changes in employer-based health care policies. There is a fast growing interest in taking preventive measures such as promoting weight control, physical activity and cessation of tobacco use, not only among big corporations but also small and mid-size businesses.

Timi Gustafson

Healthy Living

Lifestyle-related (and therefore preventable) illnesses make up approximately 80 percent of the burden of health care costs for companies and 90 percent of all health care costs, according to one study. Health and wellness incentives have long been considered a luxury only large corporations can afford, not a strategic imperative for all businesses to keep ever-increasing health care costs at bay, say the authors of a study published in the Harvard Business Review. That view

is rapidly changing. There is no shortage of examples where investments in employeesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; social, mental and physical health has paid off. For instance, Johnson & Johnson has estimated that their wellness program, which started out in 1995, saved the company about $250 million in health care costs over a decade, according to the report. Despite of these encouraging case studies, many wellness programs continue to evolve and companies are still trying to figure out exactly how or if their initiatives affect their bottom line, according to analyses by business insurance

companies. To be sure, not all employees welcome these programs in their place of work. Sometimes additional incentives such as reductions in premiums and co-payments and other cash bonuses are needed to get them to join. A few employers have begun requiring health risk assessments and biometric screening for their workers to qualify for health care coverage, a step some may consider an undue intrusion in their private affairs. Experts warn against an antagonistic climate around the issue of health in the workplace. Employers should design their policies

and programs around the needs of their employees, advises Judith A. Monroe, MD, State Health Commissioner of Indiana. If there are a number of smokers in a company, offering cessation counseling may be important. If weight problems are of concern, access to exercise and nutrition programs could be provided. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the components that is key to the overall success of wellness programs is the development of a culture of health within the organization,â&#x20AC;? says Dr. Steven Noelder, a consultant with Total Health Management in Newport Beach, California. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not

only do you need top-down support, you also need support at the grassroots level.â&#x20AC;? In other words, only when everyone feels that the measures taken are in his or her own best interest can health and wellness programs produce the desired outcome and make a difference for the better.
