City could close park facilities BY STEVE HUNTER shunter@kentreporter.com

Kent city officials will consider closing the Lake Meridian swim and boat dock and other deteriorating park facilities for safety reasons if no new revenue source is found to fund repairs. Kent Reporter file photo

City playfields, restrooms, playgrounds, swim and fishing docks could close in Kent in the next year or two without a new revenue source to repair the facilities. Voters rejected a property tax levy increase Nov. 6 with nearly 60 percent against the measure. City officials

wanted that money to raise about $29 million over six years, $18.3 million for parks and $10.7 million for streets. Now council members are discussing whether to go back to voters with a smaller levy request to at least address some of the park repairs. A new business and occupation tax adopted by the City Council in October will bring in about $5 million per year for street repairs starting in 2013.

Parks Director Jeff Watling discussed at the council’s Parks and Human Services Committee on Nov. 15 about what could happen if no money becomes available to fix park facilities. “The problem doesn’t go away,” Watling told the committee. “We will see decay and decline in the system. We need to find a way to get capital into the system. Whether we are able [ more PARKS page 4 ]

City looks to end operating losses at Riverbend BY STEVE HUNTER shunter@kentreporter.com

The city-owned Riverbend Golf Complex is under “scrutiny” by the Kent City Council because of operating losses and a $2.25 million debt. Riverbend lost $430,000 in 2011. Parks Director Jeff Watling projects losses in 2012 to be about $97,000. “The $430,000 deficit in 2011 was unacceptable to all of us,” Watling said at the council’s Nov. 15 Parks and Human Services Committee meeting. “We like the projection this year. It’s a good trend as we look at 2013.” But parks staff and the

council are looking for ways to stop the revenue losses and repay debts as the city struggles to rebuild its financial health. Riverbend’s $2.25 million debt is to pay off an interfund loan, money that the city borrowed from its water and fleet funds to help pay off the bond for the golf complex, Watling said. “Our goal is for an enterprise fund not to lose money and more important there is debt to pay,” said council president Dennis Higgins. “The council is looking at these funds with more scrutiny than the past. We need to look at funds so they are not in a deficit or have a plan

I need to get more confident we’re not running deficits.” Watling said in years the golf course made money, payments were made to lower the interfund loan.

The council started to look more closely last spring at Riverbend after the large deficit in 2011. Watling said the course faced many challenges over the last few years, includ-

Judge to rule on UW/Valley Medical alliance BY DEAN A. RADFORD dradford@rentonreporter.com

A King County Superior Court judge could decide next month the future of the strategic alliance between UW Medicine and the owner of Valley Medical Center. A hearing is tentatively set for Dec. 28 before Judge Michael C. Hayden on UW Medicine’s motion

to summarily dismiss a lawsuit filed in early October by the commissioners of Public Hospital District No. 1, which owns the Renton medical center. The hospital district’s lawsuit maintains that the elected district commissioners could not delegate their legislative responsibilities for a public institution to unelected decision makers.

Local businesses raised more than $14,000 in donations and close to 2,000 items of canned food for the Kent Food Bank. Seventy businesses and Neely-O’Brien Elementary School participated this year in the second annual Kent Turkey Challenge. “The second annual Kent Turkey Challenge was a huge success this year,” said Torklift Central General Manager Matt Lynch. “We raised a total of $14,220 and collected hundreds of pounds of food.” Officials said the donations went to about 1,000 families for Thanksgiving and almost all of the food donations were appropriately holiday-themed. “It’s a great support system,” said Jeniece Choate, executive director of the Kent Food Bank. “If we don’t have businesses supporting us, we don’t have donations to give out. So, it means everything to us.” Grainger Industrial Supply collected the most money with an $8,480 donation. George M. Stephens D.D.S. collected the most food [ more FOOD page 7 ]

Extra holiday DUI patrols set through Jan. 1 REPORTER STAFF

To help make Washington roads safe this holiday season, extra officers will patrol roadways in Kent and throughout King County as part of the annual â&#x20AC;&#x153;Drive Sober Get Pulled Overâ&#x20AC;? campaign. Patrols started Nov. 21 and run through Jan. 1,

according to a Washington Traffic Safety Commission media release. The agencies participating in the extra patrols include: The Auburn, Bellevue, Black Diamond, Burien, Clyde Hill, Covington, Des Moines, Duvall, Enumclaw, Federal Way, Issaquah, Kent, Kirkland, Maple Valley, Mercer Island, New-

castle, North Bend, Pacific, Port of Seattle, Redmond, Renton, Sammamish, Seatac, Seattle, Snoqualmie, Tukwila, and Woodinville Police departments and the Washington State Patrol. As an example of what can happen if convicted of DUI, drivers can spend more than $1,200 paying for an ignition interlock device on a vehicle.

The device is about the size of a cellphone with a tube for breath samples. Drivers have to blow into it every time they start the vehicle. The vehicle only starts if there is no alcohol in the driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s system. Ever since January 2012, ignition interlock drivers have to have a record of clean blows for the last four

months of the restriction in order to get the device removed and be eligible for their regular driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s license. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This ensures that drivers demonstrate the ability to separate their drinking from their driving,â&#x20AC;? said Washington Traffic Safety Commission director Darrin Grondel.

Area officials urge the community not to forget about emergency plans for pets as flooding season is here. Representatives from the King County Flood Control District, Regional Animal Services of King County and the city of Seattle, visited the Pet Adoption Center in Kent last week to stress the importance of preparedness during a disaster. Steve Bleifuhs called out three reasons why having a plan for pets during a disaster is key. He is the river and floodplain manager for King County Department of Natural Resources and Parks. The first is that flooding is the most common weatherrelated disaster in the area. Second, a plan allows others to rely on you. Last, not knowing what to do with pets is one of the reasons why people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t follow disaster and storm warnings. Officials remarked that after disasters such as Hurricane Katrina and train derailments in the Midwest, disaster victims did not have a plan for their pets. People often thought they could return for their animals, but the resolution to the

The Wheedle and Gene Mueller, manager for Regional Animal Services of King County, go over disaster preparedness for pets at a recent hands-on demonstration in Kent. TRACEY COMPTON, Kent Reporter emergency didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen as quickly as they expected. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not that people abandon (their pets). Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that people think things are temporary and of course itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always outside of our control what happens,â&#x20AC;? said Gene Mueller, manager for Regional Animal Services of King County. Mueller asked that people make a pack to move themselves and their pets out of harmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s way during emergencies. Part of doing that involves creating a supply kit for pets full of food, water and any medications for at least two weeks. Included in that kit should be collars with identification and sanitation items. The presentation was part of the Take Winter By Storm

campaign to help residents get prepared before bad weather hits. The hands-on demonstration also unveiled a new emergency, mobile animal shelter called the PETS or Pet Emergency Trailer Seattle vehicle, owned by the city of Seattle. It can accommodate up to 40 animals or critters with crates and supplies in the event of an emergency. The trailer was purchased with funds from a Federal Emergency Management Agency grant. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for regional use, but there is a chance that during a major disaster the vehicle will be limited to just Seattle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The other thing that we have come prepared for, and I know that King County is also prepared for, is we do have supplies that are located

The course also increased revenue by about $170,000 this year with increased fees and better merchandise sales at the pro shop. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a difficult time in the golf industry,â&#x20AC;?

Though it looks similar, there are a few differences between the actual Space Shuttles and the Full Fuselage Trainer that opened Nov. 10 to the public at the Museum of Flight in Tukwila. First, unlike the real things, the FFT is made of wood. And, of course, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not quite flight ready. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have wings; we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have wings,â&#x20AC;? Museum of Flight CEO Douglas King said recently, pointing to the back end of the life size, 120-foot model located in the Charles Simonyi Space Gallery. But the other major difference between the FFT and the actual Space Shuttles, now located in New York, Los Angeles, Florida and the Smithsonian Institute in Washington D.C., is even more important. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This one you get to go inside,â&#x20AC;? King said. The public is invited to see what up until now has been the purview of the more than 300 astronauts who trained for the 135 shuttle missions over the 30 years of the program. Astronauts each took about 20 classes in the FFT facility in Houston, known as the Space Vehicle Mockup Building, or about 100 hours per mission. The trainer was built at

Visitors prepare to check out the Space Shuttle Trainer that opened for tours Nov. 10 at the Musuem of Flight in Tukwila. BRIAN BECKLEY, Courier Herald Johnson Space Center in Houston in the 1970s and was used by every Shuttle Astronaut in preparation for their flight. According to King, now that the FFT is at the Museum of Flight, it will continue to educate, even more so than the actual orbiters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For education purposes, this is it,â&#x20AC;? King said. Exhibit curator Dan Hagedorn agreed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If people canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t experience it, they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t learn from it,â&#x20AC;? Hagedorn said. Perhaps most surprising about the FFT and the Shuttle in general, is the

lack of space inside, considering how large the vehicle is overall. The crew compartment, split on to two levels connected with a ladder, totals less than 165-square-feet of space, shared by up to seven astronauts, often for more than a week. The crew compartmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mid-deck and flight deck will not be open to the general public due to the confined space, but the 61-foot long payload bay is open, as is a landing simulator. However, beginning Nov. 17 the museum will offer educational programs that take students

inside the trainer. Surrounding the FFT is an additional exhibit about the future of spaceflight, now that the Shuttle has been officially retired. Included are several displays regarding private industry space craft, including Blue Origin from Kent, and an actual Russian Soyuz capsule, donated by the galleryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s namesake, Charles Simonyi. Simonyi was the architect behind Microsoftâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Word and Excel programs and following his departure form the company, Simonyi paid for two flights aboard Soyuz spacecrafts to the International Space Station.

Secession? Here’s the door, don’t let it hit ya It didn’t take long for displeasure with the re-election of President Barack Obama to surface. Not surprising considering the mudslinging and the generally negative nature of this year’s presidential contest between Republican candidate Mitt Romney and the incumbent. What has been surprising is the nature of the outcry against Obama’s legitimate electoral college victory – 332 votes to Romney’s 206 – and popular vote win – with Obama winning 51 percent with 62,615,406 votes to Romney’s 48 percent with 59,142,004. Given such a close race, you knew the acrimony wouldn’t be far behind. In a move akin to a sore loser threatening to take his ball and go home, the discontent seeped to the surface the day after the election when petitions for the secession of several states found their way onto the Internet. The movement started in Louisiana and other states quickly followed. Today, petitions from disgruntled residents of all 50 states seeking to leave the Union are posted on the Whitehouse’s We The People petition site at www. whitehouse.gov. Among them is Texas, whose petition now has more than 100,000 signatures. (An interesting side note is the petition asking that the City of Austin be allowed to secede from Texas but stay in the U.S.) Meanwhile, about 2,000 miles south of our fair shores, the tiny U.S. territory of Puerto Rico voted this past week to become a state. According to news reports, Puerto Ricans voted in a two-part referendum, which first asked whether they supported the current territorial relationship, then whether they supported full statehood, a Sovereign Free Associated State and outright independence. The vote was 54 percent against the current status, with 61 percent following up the first question with a vote for becoming the 51st state. So how do these two issues relate?

Studded tires damage city streets

Letters policy

In response to the Nov. 16 letter by Sandra Gill, I do not believe that the city and the City Council properly tried to convince and justify to the people that the (property) tax (levy for streets and parks) for all was needed. That is why it failed. First off the tire foot print on the roads is not as heavy by the trucks (16 & 18 wheeler’s) as is assumed by the public. It is affected however by the “overloaded” trucks and that is really a very small percentage of vehicles. So where is all that damage coming from? It is coming from passenger vehicles. All you have to do is pay attention to the width of the damage. It is not wide-spaced, double-tire damage but it is the width of passenger vehicles and it comes

In many of the states that have far worse weather than we do here, they are banned for this

The good and bad of holiday traditions In America, Thanksgiving traditionally has been a time for families to get together, eat way too much homemade food and watch some serious football. Wedged somewhere between the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, copious college and professional football games and the tons of turkey, cranberries and

yams piled high atop the dining room table, a prayer of thanks is supposed to be offered for the bounty of the season. After all, isn’t that the whole reason for the celebration in the first place? Family traditions often are the glue that binds many families

together. Some only get together at Christmas or Thanksgiving because of the long distances between family members and logistical or financial considerations. I grew up in southern California, where long-standing family traditions have an odd way of changing every year. Our typical traditions revolved around how much money was available to be spent on Thanksgiving dinner –

reason. As a side note here even the State Patrol does not use studded tires in the passes; they do use tires that the rubber gets softer as the temperature gets colder. After having used them for several years, they have provided me with as good or better traction than studs. Also if you or anyone you know has studs on their vehicle go and look at their garage or where they park and you will have an OMG (Oh My God) moment as I did. If the chains required signs are up, I do not care what kind of tires you have on you are still required to put them on. So now where does the city get the money for road repairs? It has to be felt across the board. First, a huge increase on the sale of studded tires; second an across the board increase in the B&O (business and occupation) and property taxes. This is where I disagree with [ more LETTERS page 7]

after all the bills had been paid, of course. My father preferred ham, so our “meat of choice” for Thanksgiving dinner was not the succulent roast turkey with cornbread stuffing I had hungered after all year. Sometimes the meat of the day wasn’t even ham. My sister, Marilyn, remembers a Thanksgiving dinner consisting of greasy meat loaf, lumpy mashed potatoes and canned green beans.

www.kentreporter.com [ SKAGER from page 6] Bear with me here. When I first heard about the secession petitions, I thought, no problem: let’s take anyone who wants to secede, ship them off to the Lone Star State and let Texas become the Republic of Texas again. Then, after realizing that Texas actually contributed to the national economy (unlike deadbeat states such as Louisiana – which takes $1.45 of federal money for every $1 it ponies up – and Alabama – $1.71 of fed cash for every $1), I realized my initial plan was a poor idea. Plus, I saw what a map of the U.S. actually looked like without Texas (check it out, it’s not very appealing) I realized there might be an alternative. As of a much-too-late-

[ SHERMAN from page 6] It must have been some great holiday dinner. Fortunately, I have managed to block that one completely out of my memory bank, so I can’t speak from personal experience. Another family tradition that died a very slow and painful (for us) death was my mother’s notion that cooked celery could be considered a real vegetable. Thankfully, she served it only on holidays. And there were enough other heaping plates of food on the table that we could say, “Sorry, Mom, there’s no room on my plate. I’ll get it in the next round.” Years later, my sister and I finally worked up the nerve to ask our mother what in the

to-be-up Sunday night, the signature count on the Whitehouse.gov for those in favor of secession was more than 829,000 Americans who want to leave the Union, rather than compromise and work towards the betterment of the country. Meanwhile, more than 3.7 million Puerto Ricans appear to be eager to join the Union. So, here’s my idea. Let’s gather up anyone not willing to work together as Americans and give them Puerto Rico as a new nation. That way they can be free of the constraints of actually having to concede to the wishes of the majority of Americans. And honestly, who’d be unhappy with the prospect of more than 3,500 square miles of Caribbean island real estate?

In exchange we allow any Puerto Ricans who want to become Americans to come to our shores and settle in the great state of Texas, which with a miniscule population density of 96.3 people per square mile, spread out over 268,581 square miles, has more than enough space for a few more people. It’s a win-win situation for all. The Puerto Ricans become full-fledged Americans, the disgruntled secessionists inherit a Caribbean Island, and the rest of the country gets back to work compromising and getting the United States back on track, minus a few hundred thousand malcontents. Let’s just hope Donald Trump and his hair are among the secessionists.

world inspired her to think that boiled celery was a viable alternative to your standard, everyday, leafy green veggies. She didn’t know, Mom replied in a slightly testy tone, but nobody had ever complained about it before. Of course, we watched the Macy’s parade in the morning and all the football games, including several reruns, that we could stomach in one day. For those who are too young to remember the “dark ages” of television, we only had a few channels to choose from and many games were blacked out for later viewing. Dad didn’t care if he already knew the final score – it was the Rams game, for goodness sakes! After dinner, Dad would always end the day snoring

loudly on the couch (watching the above-mentioned Rams game) while my sister and I attempted to clean up the disaster area that previously had been our kitchen. We’d slide the pocket door closed between the kitchen and dining room and harmonize at the top of our lungs to old songs from the 1930s and 40s. (Don’t even ask . . . they were old back then, too.) I never even held it against Marilyn when she tried to electrocute me by dunking my left hand in soapy dishwater while wrapping my wet right hand around the handle of a deep-fryer basket. And yes, it was plugged in at the time. I guess I’m just lucky that one never developed into a family tradition.

[ LETTERS from page 6] the Gill letter again - the public should take the heat for the damage that is caused by primarily passenger vehicles. Also it is how we drive all the time trying to avoid potholes because this causes our tires to bounce and create the next pothole in line and mess up our front end

alignment, then add to this the empty trucks that drive faster than needed and they bounce even more than the cars. Do I want higher taxes? Absolutely not. I am an average homeowner in the city and am not associated with any business but we the public must be reasonable with businesses because if

we stick it to them then they will move away along with the jobs that they provide and associated taxes that they pay. Then where does the tax base money come from? You got it, we will get a far bigger tax bill. This is a case of damned if you do and damned if you don’t.

Laurence (Larry) Edwin Eritsland born October 11, 1934 in Rocky Mountain House, Alberta, Canada; passed away in his home in Kent, Washington on Thursday, September 13, 2012. He will be greatly missed by his sisters, Dorothy, Marie, Rosalind and Carol, and their husbands who live in Canada. His sister-in-law Amy Eritsland and her children Jay and Carol and their children live close by and were very supportive as Larrysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; health began to fail. His many nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews will also feel his loss. Larry immigrated to the United States from Canada in 1966. He was manager of the Echo Glen Childrens Center, Department of Social and Health Services. Larry loved to be outdoors at his home. He loved to go to the pond, feed the ducks, feed the many humming birds and stray cats that came his way. He also gave to many charities over the years. He was a very gentle man and will be missed tremendously by all who knew him. We love you.

The city of Des Moines has expanded its use of Automated Speed Enforcement (ASE) cameras to catch drivers speeding through school zones. In October 2011, the city installed the cameras in the school zone along the northbound and southbound lanes of 16th Avenue South in front of Woodmont Elementary School. The city chose Woodmont after speed studies showed an average of 100 to 130 speeding violations during peak pick-up and drop-off times during the day, according to a Des Moines Police media release. To create a safer school zone for children, the speed cameras only operate on school days when the flashing beacon warning system is operating, which is also part of the safety program before and after school: 7:408:20 a.m. and 2:40-3:10 p.m. Due to an 82 percent reduction in the number of motorists speeding through the Woodmont Elementary school zone, the Des Moines City Council approved in June to continue the Automated Speed Enforcement Program.

Child Find screenings The Kent School District offers free Child Find screenings for children ages 3-5

The council also approved the expansion of the program along 24th Avenue South in front of Midway Elementary and Pacific Middle School. The city chose this second site after conducting another comprehensive speed study in February, which showed an average of about 100 speed violations per day. This school zone also has a flashing beacon warning system indicating the school zone is active. Cameras were installed in October in the school zone along the northbound and southbound lanes of 24th Avenue South in front of the schools. The speed cameras will only operate on school days when the flashing beacon warning system is operating before and after school: 7:35-8:15 a.m. and 2:35-3:05 p.m. During an initial 30-day introductory and public education period, the city will issue warning notices, but no monetary penalty to the registered owner of any vehicle photographed while speeding. Actual enforcement and the issuance of notice of infractions will start on Jan. 2. The penalty for speeding in a school zone is $210, according to an email

In the process, the rights of the estateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beneficiaries, as well as the decedentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s creditors and taxing authorities are protected. The financial aspects of the decedentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life are â&#x20AC;&#x153;wrapped upâ&#x20AC;? and the assets are distributed in accordance with the decedentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wishes.

OneMain Financial branch collecting food donations REPORTER STAFF

OneMain Financial will provide Kent area residents and customers the opportunity to support their local community during its Customer Appreciation Days through the rest of November. The OneMain Financial branch at 25840 104th Ave. S.E. in Kent will collect

[ MEDICAL from page1] and the University of Washington Board of Trustees. The allianceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 13 trustees, who include the five hospital district commissioners, oversee the medical operations of Valley Medical. The hospital commission is responsible for overseeing the public assets of the hospital and the property taxes that support it. However, the hospital commission majority changed with the election of Joos in the 2011 general election to replace Don Jacobson on the board. Joos, along with commissioners Anthony Hemstad and Dr. Aaron Heide, voted to pursue the lawsuit against UW Medicine. Heide and Hemstad voted against forming the alliance, which had undergone months of legal review and public discussion. The legal team for UW Medicine filed the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s response on Nov. 15, pointing out that two state statutes authorize such strategic alliances and the sharing of responsibilities was â&#x20AC;&#x153;carefully structuredâ&#x20AC;? in the agreement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In this lawsuit, the district now seeks to back out of its contractual obligations simply because a current majority of its commissioners has taken a different view of the agreement,â&#x20AC;? the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lawyers wrote in their response. â&#x20AC;&#x153;However, the district is legally bound to comply with the terms of the agreement it signed,â&#x20AC;? they wrote. The hospital districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

food donations until Nov. 30 to help support the mission of Northwest Harvest Food Bank. OneMain Financialâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s collaboration with NW Harvest Food Bank reflects the philanthropic and communityoriented mindset engrained in the Baltimore-based companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s corporate culture, according to a company media release. Employees leverage their professional skills and experience by volunteering their time directly to nonprofits and other community

organizations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sharing a likeminded vision with NW Harvest Food Bank, OneMain Financial is helping make the neighborhoods where we do business better places to live and work,â&#x20AC;? said Mary McDowell, President and CEO of OneMain Financial and CitiFinancial North America. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a strong tradition of supporting local organizations that help those in need, and as we celebrate our 100th anniversary.â&#x20AC;?

attorney, Bruce Disend, couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be reached for comment. In the hospital district lawsuit, Disend and Philip Talmadge, who also signed the lawsuit, are seeking a declaratory judgment from a judge that entering the strategic alliance was beyond the power of the hospital district commissioners. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The district has standing to bring this action because its rights and legal relations and those of its citizens are adversely affected by the

Strategic Alliance Agreement,â&#x20AC;? they wrote. In a Nov. 16 letter to executives at Valley Medical Center, Dr. Paul G. Ramsey, CEO of UW Medicine, asked that everyone continue â&#x20AC;&#x153;to dedicate their best efforts to the mission of improving health. The lawsuit should not distract us from our important work to achieve the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Triple Aimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; of better care for individuals, better health for populations, and reduction of per-capita costs.â&#x20AC;?

County traffic deaths, homicides decline REPORTER STAFF

King County saw the fewest traffic deaths and homicides in more than 10 years in 2011, according to the King County Medical Examinerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (KCME) Annual Report released Nov. 15. There were 135 traffic deaths in 2011 compared to 150 in 2010. Homicides dropped to 54 in 2011 from 59 in 2010. In contrast, drug-induced

deaths are an increasing concern in King County. The number of deaths in which oxycodone was present increased by 30 percent, from 65 in 2010 to 85 in 2011. The KCME 2011 Annual Report presents a detailed analysis of deaths that fell under KCMEâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s jurisdiction in 2011, including suspicious, sudden, unexpected or violent deaths in King County, as well as trends in homicides, traffic fatalities

and drug overdose deaths. The full King County Medical Examinerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2011 Annual Report is available at www. kingcounty.gov/health/ examiner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Medical Examiner death reviews support Public Healthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prevention efforts,â&#x20AC;? said Dr. David Fleming, Director and Health Officer for Public Health â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Seattle & King County. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can target prevention efforts based on our understanding

of circumstances, risk factors and trends of these deaths. For example, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re able to identify the leading causes of deaths from traffic crashes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including alcohol and drug impairment, speed, and failure to wear seat belts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and work to address them.â&#x20AC;? Findings from the 2011 annual report include: Compared with 2010, KCME saw fewer homicides and traffic deaths, and an increase in suicides.

Bronson finds Eastern better fit than UW BY KRIS HILL khill@covingtonreporter.com

Demitrius Bronson’s football journey has been a long, winding road which has led him to Cheney. Bronson, a 2008 Kentwood High graduate, started out with a plan to play football at the University of Washington but in the fall of 2011 found himself at Eastern Washington University. It probably could not have worked out better, yet when he made the decision to transfer to Eastern from Washington it could not have been harder. In the fall of 2008, Bronson gray-shirted at Washington, so he was not on the roster during the final season for coach Tyrone Willingham. While the tailback went to class, he watched the Huskies football program implode into a winless season. “I had a lot of friends going there … I knew the class that was going there,” Bronson said. “I was just trying to think positive about the situation. I know they’ve got playmakers and it was just a matter of time.” In the fall of 2009 Bronson was ready to step on the field for new coach Steve Sarkisian and make his mark in the new era of Washington football.

Former Kentwood High star Demitrius Bronson found a new home at running back in Cheney with Eastern Washington University after starting his career at the University of Washington. COURTESY PHOTO “I just thought it was a great opportunity to kind of step in,” Bronson said. “I kind of saw it as a chance, an opportunity to get my career going.” Before the season began Bronson wasn’t sure if Sarkisian planned to keep him on the roster. He got a call, though, inviting him to stay. That doesn’t mean it was easy. “Playing that year I felt a bit of pressure because I felt like I wasn’t their guy,” Bronson said. “I felt like I

had to do everything right. I felt like I had to go in and do everything right.” He got some playing time that year, listed as a true freshman, but the game at the end of the season against rival Washington State may have been the beginning of the end of Bronson’s career at Washington. Bronson recalled fumbling twice in one drive against the Cougars in the Apple Cup. “The opportunity was out the door,” he said. “When 2010 came around, I just felt

like for them to trust me as a tailback, that wasn’t there. Then for me, the confidence started going down.” Bronson saw limited playing time in 2010 on special teams. After that, he made the difficult decision to transfer. Bronson said he didn’t leave on a sour note, that there was not bitterness, it just seemed like he might fit in better in another program. Football wasn’t fun anymore. He told the coaching staff at UW he felt like his time there was up.

“It was one of the biggest obstacles I had to go through in my entire life,” Bronson said. “I didn’t really want to leave, but I did want to leave.” Eastern Washington recruited him when he was a senior at Kentwood — he rushed for 1,405 yards his final year playing for the Conquerors — and Bronson said he’d had a good recruiting visit at that time. He knew some players on the Eagles team, including Aaron Boyce, who encouraged Bronson to consider heading to Cheney. Bronson gave the coaching staff at Eastern a call. “They didn’t hesitate at all,” Bronson said. “They said, ‘Yeah, we’ll take you.’” Still, leaving UW was hard. Bronson had to think about more than just what was best for him. “I have family to think about, I have to think about my son,” Bronson said. “A lot of people just throw it out there, ‘I’m going to transfer.’ It’s something that you don’t want to go through. There are a lot of factors that go into it.” Bronson’s son is 18 months old now. His girlfriend is also attending Eastern. He said he’s grown up in a hurry since his son [ more BRONSON page 16 ]


[16] November 23, 2012 was born. And his teammates recognize he has different priorities. Still, Bronson knew coming in this was a good chance to establish his football career again. He knew when he stepped foot on campus he would come in lower on the depth chart. And the Eagles style of play is different from the Huskies. At Washington, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about powering through when running out of the backfield. At Eastern the focus is on speed and quickness. His first season with the Eagles, he was playing fullback, a position he was not comfortable in. That season was about getting back on the field, getting some playing time and some snaps. But, he wanted to get the opportunity to back to tailback, the position he thrived at while playing at Kentwood. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I talked to Coach (Beau) Baldwin afterward and said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;What can I do to solidify a spot at tailback,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Bronson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He gave me some pointers, told me what to do. Basically that offseason, I lost 20 pounds. I went away that summer, I went to Arizona to work on my speed. I still need to get my

mind right, to get my body right.â&#x20AC;? Bronson dropped from 225 to 205 pounds. He started working hard to move up on the depth chart heading into camp. Then early in the season he injured his hamstring. The coaches saw it as a minor setback and told him to keep working hard. His second game back things started working out for him. He got into the rotation in the backfield then ran all over the defense, rushing for more than 100 yards on 13 carries. Proving himself still isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always an easy task, though. Eastern has two excellent quarterbacks and a receiver corps that the offense hinges on. Its running game is secondary. All the backs, Bronson said, have a friendly rivalry with wideouts as they try to prove they can put up numbers, too, and demonstrate the Eagles have a wellrounded offensive attack. Whatever the Eagles are doing is working. Eastern was ranked sixth in the country in the Football Championship Series after a win Nov. 10 over UC Davis. Bronson had two touchdowns and 82 yards on the ground in that game. As the post-season approaches, Bronson is confident the team can make another run at a national

title. Bronson is listed as a junior, so, he has one more year of eligibility left. That means that no matter how the season ends for Eastern he still has more time to prove himself. Eastern, which got the automatic berth into the Football Championship Series playoffs, will play its first post-season game Saturday, Dec. 1, against the winner of this Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first-round matchup between Colgate and Warner. Someday, if he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t land in the NFL or Canadian Football League, Bronson would like to go into law enforcement. His big dream is to either become a SWAT officer or a member of the Secret Service. Wherever he goes after his time at Eastern is over, he is thankful for what he learned at Kentwood and whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s he found in Cheney. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Coming into high school, I only had played football a couple years, so I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really know my place,â&#x20AC;? Bronson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My grades were really bad coming out of junior high. They kind of took me under their wings, the whole (coaching) staff, and helped me with my grades and made me a hard worker. I felt like I had that in me. I look back at high school and I get kind of mad. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know I was that guy. I guess they saw

that in me and they tried to push the envelope.â&#x20AC;? Kentwood coach Rex Norris was a teacher in the classroom, a father figure and supporter. If Bronson needed new shoes, for

example, Norris helped him get a job to pay for them. What Norris and the Kentwood football coaching staff did, Bronson said, was â&#x20AC;&#x153;shaping me into the kind of man I am today.â&#x20AC;?

Still time to dig in garden before winter freeze

Allium or flowering onion This is not the blooming onion you’ll be served at a restaurant - but these onions are a treat for the eyes. Alliums look

THE GARDENER

like something from outer space when in bloom, which explains why a gardener once Marianne Binetti

There is still plenty of time to dig in the garden before winter buttons things up and as long as the ground is not frozen solid you can transplant roses, move deciduous shrubs that have lost their leaves and add spring blooming bulbs that you find for bargain prices at home centers and garden stores. Why not go for a whole new look this spring and plant some unusual bulbs now for novelty blooms in a few months? Here’s my vote for bulbs with personality that do well in Western Washington:

asked where to find “Alien bulbs” with the big round spheres for blooms. Tall and dramatic when they flower in May and June, the starry blooms dry and persist most of the summer on tall stems. It has been become quite fashionable in some English gardens to use spray paint to add some color to the faded blooms of Alliums - bright silver the color of choice in one show garden

we toured. Plant the big alliums 6 to 8 inches deep in a spot where they will get full sun. If you have bulbs that disappear from rodents and deer, give alliums a try - the onion scent is a great pest repellent.

Fritillaries Another deer and rodent resistant bulb with unusual blooms on tall stems, frittalaria comes in many varieties - all a bit weird and wonderful looking. The Crown Imperial Frittalaria has up to 10 clustered flowers hanging from a center whorl like umbrellas turned upside down. A smaller variety, fritillaria melagria is called the checkered lily or guinea hen flower because the bell-shaped

blooms are bi-colored in a pattern that resembles a chess board - or the chest of a guinea hen if you happen to be familiar with chickens. This is a bulb you’ll want to enjoy as a cut flower, up close and personal.

Mount Hood daffodils Who could resist a daffodil named after a mountain? The snow on top of Mount Hood in Oregon inspired the naming of this delightful daffodil that blooms with a pale yellow trumpet that soon turns to glistening, snow white as the flower matures. What I really like about Mount Hood daffodils is that the white blooms last longer than traditional yellow daffodils. Rock Garden tulips These short stemmed

You can find all of these unusual bulbs at local nurseries just sitting in open bins, waiting for you to bag up and take home. There is still time to order bulbs from mail order houses or online bulb growers but don‘t wait much longer. It’s time to plant bulbs can spring be far away?

tulips are more properly called species tulips and they are originally from the Mediterranean so they prefer a spot where the soil will be warm and dry in the summer - in our climate, that means plant them in a raised bed rock garden. Species tulips such as Tulip kaufmanniana ‘Ice Stick” and Tulip clusiana ‘Lady Jane” come with two-toned petals that appear as if bold stripes of pink or red paint had been applied to the creamy white flowers. “Pinocchio” with a long pointed nose - I mean bud, blooms in yellow and red and Tsar Peter has fabulous blooms yellow at the base, then feathered out cream, pink and red - really a royal flower fit for a king - or Russian Tsar.

Fire Department offers holiday safety advice following these simple steps: 1. Have all CO producing devices in the home inspected by a professional. 2. Never bring barbecues or running generators into a home. 3. Purchase and install a carbon monoxide alarm in your home. 4. If you or someone in your home begins complaining of the symptoms listed above or your CO alarm activates, leave your residence immediately and call 911. Smoke Alarms: Have working smoke alarms and know how to escape if they activate. Change the batteries annually and replace your smoke alarms every 10 years. Electric heaters: Ensure that all portable space heaters and baseboard

Promote your EVENT across the entire state!  

heaters have at least 3 feet of clearance around them to prevent fires. Keep all combustibles such as curtains, bedding, and clothing away. Purchase heaters that have an auto-shutoff feature when tipped over and that have an Underwriters Laboratory (UL) rating. Cooking: Whenever you are cooking, â&#x20AC;&#x153;keep an eye on what you fry.â&#x20AC;? Never

leave the kitchen when cooking and always keep pan lids handy. If a pan catches on fire, simply place the matching lid on the pan while wearing an oven mitt. Once the lid is on, turn off the burner and call 911. To reduce injuries, create a â&#x20AC;&#x153;kid freeâ&#x20AC;? zone in front of your stove and oven. Candles: During the holidays and power out-

ages candles are commonly used for decoration and light. Use them wisely. Place candles in a non-tipping base and set them where they cannot be easily knocked over by children, pets, or breezes. Always keep candles away from combustibles such as drapes, bedding, clothing, holiday decorations, and Christmas trees.

LAUGHTER, JOY, AND HAPPINESS You know that you certainly feel better when you are happy, laughing, and full of joy. So, it only makes sense that happiness should exert a positive effect on health and longevity. And science has confirmed what we intuitively know to be true. Older individuals who report that they are happy are one-third more likely to live out the next five years than their less-happy counterparts. This so-called â&#x20AC;&#x153;happiness effectâ&#x20AC;? was even found to be true among older people suffering from chronic diseases. Moreover, research involving centenarians shows that one of the qualities they most had in common was that they laughed easily. A happy disposition seems to be one of the cornerstones upon which a long life is built. At PARKSIDE RETIREMENT COMMUNITY, our caring staff encourages an upbeat attitude among our senior residents. We provide a variety of enjoyable activities and events planned to keep our seniors busy and happy. To learn more about us, reach us today at (253) 9391332. We will arrange a meeting and tour of our conveniently located, unique senior community at 2902 I Street, N.E. We have been serving seniors since 1972. We look forward to meeting you! P.S. Strong social relationships can boost longevity by as much as 50 percent.

The Kent Fire Department Regional Fire Authority asks all residents to consider the following fire and life safety tips to help ensure they have a safe and enjoyable holiday season. Carbon Monoxide: (CO) is a colorless, almost odorless, and tasteless gas which is present during any type of burning. This includes wood stoves, gas furnaces, wood burning fireplaces, generators, and vehicle emissions. When inhaled, it depletes the oxygen supply in the blood stream. Symptoms of CO poisoning include lightheadedness, dizziness, headaches, nausea, vomiting, seizures, decreased levels of consciousness, and in extreme cases, death.

Thank you to our generous Pink the Rink partners for helping us “stick it to breast cancer”!

One hundred high-risk women in need will receive mammograms thanks to a partnership between Valley Medical Center’s GLOW program and The Seattle Thunderbirds hockey team. Now in its second year, “Pink the Rink” raised $15,000 for Valley’s Breast Center to provide life saving mammograms and breast education for disadvantaged women.
