City considers cameras to catch school-zone speeders BY STEVE HUNTER shunter@kentreporter.com

The city of Kent might install cameras in the fall to catch speeders of more than 20 mph at as many as three school zones. “It came from me,” said City

Councilman Bill Boyce about the idea to add the cameras. “I think it’s a good thing. I served on the (Kent) School Board for 17 years and it’s all about safety. I’ve seen the cameras in other cities and I asked our police chief why we were not doing that in Kent?”

Just about every city surrounding Kent runs the school-zone cameras, including Auburn, Federal Way, Des Moines and Renton. Seattle added the cameras last year. As chairman of the council’s Public Safety Committee, Boyce

directed Kent Police Chief Ken Thomas and his staff to study what it would take to add school zone speeding cameras in Kent. If approved by the threemember committee and the full seven-member council, cameras could be operational in the fall.

Boyce hopes to get the proposal to the council in April or May. “We’ll pilot three schools to start,” Thomas said. “We’ll do studies before we pick the schools, talk to the Kent School District [ more CAMERAS page 4 ]

Officials abandon efforts to create homeless shelter on East Gowe Street BY MARK KLAAS mklaas@kentreporter.com

Facing strong opposition from business and community leaders, the Kent Homelessness Partnership Effort (KentHOPE) and Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission officials have aborted efforts to establish a shelter on East Gowe Street. Concerned about a growing problem in the city, KentHOPE and the Union Gospel

Commissioners from the ports of Tacoma and Seattle, business owners, labor leaders, and the mayors of Auburn and Kent met at Auburn City Hall to talk about the problems posed by aging freight routes within Green River valley cities. From more than an hour’s worth of give and take at the Feb. 14 meeting emerged something politicians and leaders rarely reach these days — consensus. Consensus, that is, that most of the freight routes along which goods flow from valley warehouses to the two ports — especially to Tacoma — are falling apart Lewis or on the cusp of falling apart, while federal and state governments that once helped cities pay for maintenance and construction plead poverty. Agreement also that if money can’t be found for repair [ more ROUTES page 17 ]

Mission took steps to convert a vacant furniture store into a day center/shelter for the homeless. But the pursuit met considerable resistance from business and community leaders, notably the Kent Chamber of Commerce and Kent Downtown Partnership (KDP). “It became really evident that the chamber of commerce wasn’t really supportive of the idea,” said Paul LaRose, emergency services administrator for Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission who oversees satellite shelters. “We want to work with a community supportive of (the idea).

Jury finds ex-SPSL volleyball coach guilty of sex crime BY STEVE HUNTER shunter@kentreporter.com

A jury found a former Mount Rainier High School volleyball coach guilty of third-degree attempted rape of a child and communication with a minor for immoral purposes in connection with a girl the man met at Lake Meridian Park in Kent. The King County Superior Court jury reached its verdict Wednesday against Daniel Gregory Lum-Lung, 35, of Renton, according to the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office. He is scheduled to be sentenced March 1 and faces up to a year in jail. He pleaded not guilty to the charge in November 2011. Lum-Lung is the second former South Puget Sound League coach facing a jail sentence because of a sex crime. Ernie Ammons, a former Kent-Meridian High School teacher and track coach, pleaded guilty

earlier this month to communication with a minor for immoral purposes. He is scheduled to be sentenced Feb. 22. Kent Police arrested Lum-Lung on Nov. 15, 2011 for investigation of communicating with a minor for immoral purposes, according to charging papers. He posted bail and was released two days later from the county jail. Bail was set at $50,000. Until his arrest, LumLung taught physical education at Cascade Middle School and coached girls volleyball at Mount Rainier, both in the Highline School District. Lum-Lung met the 15-year-old girl on a telephone chat line. They agreed to meet at about Oct. 22, 2011 at Lake Meridian Park, according to charging papers. While at the park, LumLung allegedly made several verbal requests of the girl to do certain sexual acts. The

girl told him no. The girl also told police that Lum-Lung asked her to meet him inside the park restroom. She left the park after he entered the restroom. A couple of days later, the girl received an email reportedly from Lum-Lung that referred to “with you in the rain at Lake Meridian.” The email sender also asked if she wanted to see him again. They never met again. The girl and her mother reported the incident to the girl’s Kent school and police were contacted. Detectives obtained a search warrant and served it on Yahoo to access the Internet account connected with the emails sent to the girl. Detectives served the warrant on Oct. 27, 2011 and received Yahoo’s response two weeks later. The account showed a name of Black Stevebn. A search of the contact list showed a list of Mount Rainier volleyball players that eventually led detectives to Lum-Lung. Detectives obtained a state Department of Licensing photograph of Lum-Lung and created a six-photograph lineup including his photo to show to the girl. She positively identified the photo of Lum-Lung as the man who met her at the park.

according to prosecutors. The jury also found by special verdict a basis for a potential exceptional sentence since one victim was pregnant at the time of the attack. Ejonga had been friends with one of the women and her brother. Ejonga was kicked out of their Des Moines home for stealing money from the woman’s mother. Ejonga, claiming he would pay back money he owed for the theft and for damaging her car, met with the woman and two of her friends, but then, without warning, attacked them, according to charging papers. The assault was so severe that two of the women were hospitalized in critical condition. When one of the women attempted to flee, Ejonga chased after her, and despite her pregnant condition, inflicted more stab wounds to her body. She

Man dies in Kent motel fire A Kent man died in a fire Tuesday morning at the Sunset Motel, 25006 Pacific Highway S. Firefighters were called to the motel shortly after 7 a.m. Tuesday for a small fire in a room, according to a Kent Police media release. The cause of the fire remains under investigation. When the first engine company arrived minutes later, they found heavy smoke and flames coming from the room and spread-

ing to the adjoining rooms. Additional resources were called to the scene and the fire was brought under control a short time later. Firefighters entered and conducted a search of the damaged rooms. They located the body of man, believed to be the tenant of the room where the fire started. Kent Police detectives were then summoned to assist with the investigation. The identity of the man had not yet been released Tuesday. – Steve Hunter

A 22-year-old Kent man could be sentenced in March to more than 50 years in prison after a jury convicted him of three counts of first-degree attempted murder for stabbing three women in 2011 in Des Moines. Jojo D. Ejonga is scheduled to be sentenced at 2:30 p.m. March 29 before King County Superior Court Judge Patrick Oishi at the Norm Maleng Regional Justice Center in Kent. A jury convicted Ejonga Jan. 29 for the May 2011 knife attack on three unarmed women, one of whom was 7-months pregnant, according to the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office. He is in custody at the county jail at the RJC. With the deadly weapon enhancements, Ejonga will face a sentence range of 51 to 66 years in prison,

A woman in her 50s, her daughter in her 20s and a family friend also in her 20s were attacked at about 11 p.m. May 8, 2011 in the 23000 block of 30th Avenue South, according to a Des Moines Police media release. Des Moines Police located Ejonga at about 2:30 a.m. May 9, 2011 on South 240th Street near Pacific Highway South. He was taken into custody without incident. Ejonga declined to talk to detectives or officers about the incident. Officers noticed that the man had a cut on his right hand and minor cuts to his face. Officers also observed blood on his shoes and socks, according to court documents. Officers found a cellphone and checkbook that belonged to one of the women in Ejonga’s possession.

Kentridge coach at all – not just because he’s been coaching for 11 years but also because he can’t hear it. Dobner was born deaf to hearing parents. After swimming on a club team in his youth and becoming a swim coach later on in life, the issue of communication has come full circle. “(When I swam) I had a friend who could clarify for me,” Dobner said. “(Now) if (the team) doesn’t under-

fic cameras for running red lights and speeding in school zones after city voters passed an initiative to restrict cameras. Cameras will take a photo of a speeding vehicle (measured by radar sensors) and after review by a police officer, the hired company will send a ticket to the vehicle’s registered owner. Des Moines charges $210 for a speeding ticket in a school zone. Seattle charges $189. “We haven’t determined a dollar amount yet,” Boyce said. Kent Police traffic Sgt. Robert Constant gave an informational report Feb.

12 to the Public Safety Committee. He said the traffic volumes at schools need to be high enough to support the cost of the cameras. He has met with two outside vendors interested in getting the city contract to provide the cameras. “The maintenance cost with an outside vendor and our costs per month does negate certain schools from being able to participate based on the fact of volume,” Constant said. “The areas we utilize will need to have enough contact (vehicles) to support the service.” The city will soon post a request for proposals (RFP) to get bids from companies, Constant said.

Scottsdale, Ariz.-based American Traffic Solutions contracts with Des Moines, Seattle, Federal Way, Issaquah and more than 300 other communities to provide traffic camera services that include the equipment as well as mailing out tickets. Constant said he found out by talking to neighboring cities that violators drop off significantly after the first six months to a year following camera installation. He said Des Moines Police saw a 82 percent reduction and Renton a 62 percent drop after a year. But despite the drops, the cities still had enough violators to pay for the program. Kent city officials still

need to determine where any revenue from the tickets would go after costs are covered. “It’s very important to me that the funding generated from the program goes back into traffic safety and not find its way to other places where it might be needed,” said Councilwoman Dana Ralph, a Public Safety Committee member. Thomas said fellow police chiefs he talked to said their cities designated funds to traffic enforcement or pedestrian and vehicle safety. “It’s about kids getting to school safely,” Thomas said. “It’s not meant to generate more revenue. The purpose is to keep kids safe.”

stand, they’ll ask me to repeat it or the assistant coach will let them know.” The language barrier between Dobner and his swimmers doesn’t take long to bridge. At first, he might have trouble reading lips of new swimmers, but as the year progresses, Dobner and his team practice with few miscommunications. Sometimes, he’ll write it on a piece of paper. Other times, he’ll gesture to what he wants the boys to do. Dobner also has an app

on his smartphone called Dragon Dictate, which uses voice recognition technology to transcribe what others say so he can read it. But even the best technology and alternate forms of communication can’t eliminate miscommunications. At times, some of the misunderstandings make very funny memories for everyone. “One time I was with another coach, and I spoke a word into Dragon Dictate,” Dobner said. “It came out vomit, and that was not what I was trying to say. “(Miscommunications) have made the swimmers laugh several times.” But it’s not about translating word for word. Dobner explained that the meaning of the sentence is what’s most important. As long as

the message gets through, the translation doesn’t necessarily have to be literal. Dobner also teaches American Sign Language (ASL) at the high school and college levels. He believes the programs are thriving and expanding, giving him more motivation to continue teaching ASL. “I’m lucky our (program) is going strong,” Dobner said. At the South Puget Sound League Swimming and Diving Championships in Federal Way last weekend, Kentridge placed eighth out of 16 teams with junior Chase Bublitz winning the 100- and 200-yard freestyle events. The Chargers’ 200-yard freestyle relay team took second.

Dobner believes the positive attitude and work ethic of his team led to their victories over the weekend and a strong finish to a good season.

Committee discusses civility laws for downtown parks BY STEVE HUNTER shunter@kentreporter.com

Kent City Councilman Les Thomas said each time he goes for early-morning coffee in downtown Kent he sees a group of about eight to 10 men standing around the Rotary ball fountain at Town Square Plaza. “It makes single women uncomfortable,” Thomas said at a Feb. 12 council’s Public Safety Committee meeting. “All of the men are waiting for the library to open so they can go keep warm.” The committee continues to study whether new civility laws are needed to help reduce behavior problems at downtown parks by the homeless. Civility laws apply to anyone in a public space engaging in inappropriate behaviors. David A. Galazin, assistant city attorney, told the committee that park staff continues to find activity that prohibits enjoyment by others. “A few bad apples ruin it for everybody,” said Galazin, who is

working with the committee about potential new laws. “People leave for their safety or their children’s safety.” If Kent Police had stricter civility laws to enforce, officers might Thomas be able to reduce the problems. “It’s the same small grope of people and the same behavior over and over,” Galazin said. “We’re working on a conceptual framework for an ordinance that would include exclusion from public facilities.” Public urination and defecation loom as one of the larger problems. Galazin said exclusion laws in order to make an impact need to carry a long enough ban to address repeat violators and apply to other nearby public facilities. “With downtown area parks (now), you can exclude them from one facility and they can step across the street to another facility,” Galazin said. “If you put parks in a grouping and consider

them as one unit you could have as few as two places or as many as 10.” Galazin said the committee might want to consider making public urination a misdemeanor rather than a civil infraction. Misdemeanors include higher fines than civil infractions as well as the potential of jail time. Councilwoman Dana Ralph likes the idea of grouping parks together so a person would be banned from numerous public facilities if they break the law. Ralph serves on the Public Safety Committee with Thomas and Bill Boyce. “This is not a target on one population but the community as a whole,” Ralph said. “This is for behaviors that you would not do if your mother was standing there. I want to move forward with this to give police a tool to help them with their jobs.” Exclusion of violators from public parks would help police, Galazin said.

An ordinance with new civility laws could be considered by the committee in March before going to the full seven-member council for approval. “There is big enough interest in this and it’s important to do it well,” Ralph said. Pat Crockett, who owns the Creamery building downtown on Meeker Street, told the committee she’s seen beer bottles left near her building and saw a man who wanted to pick fights with people who walked past him along the street. “On Sunday, two men urinated at the corner of our building,” Crockett said. Thomas responded that the new ordinance would only deal with parks. “Streets and sidewalks are another issue and not part of this ordinance,” Thomas said. Police cannot remove someone from a street or sidewalk unless criminal activity has occurred, Galazin said. Sarah Davidson, a representative of KentHope, part of a group

Parks Director Jeff Watling replied that public restrooms do exist downtown, including Town Square Plaza, the Kent Library, City Hall and Kent Station. He said the park restroom closes at dusk and park staff has had to make sure people do not try to camp overnight inside the restroom. The committee took up the issue after a council workshop discussion Jan. 15 about whether to adopt civility laws because of so many complaints from residents and business owners. King County Metro uses civility laws to handle behavior problems at transit stations and on buses, including criminal penalties for public urination and disturbances.

“Should Kent allow traffic cameras in school zones?”

Dennis Box

Question of the week:

February prompts thoughts of family summer vacations. I think that is the case, anyway. I never go anywhere or have fun, but I imagine folks who go on vacations start imagining running off to somewhere to do something – I’m not sure what. The one great family vacation I recall is when I forced my kids to go to St. Ignatius, Mont., to drive around the National Bison Range. The memorable moment of this vacation came when I had to drive like mad to make it from Helena to the bison range before it closed at about 6 p.m. My son, Chris, wanted to go through it (he was about 7 at the time) and my daughter Katy, who was 9, did not want to do anything except leave Montana as quickly as possible. One of the true parental joys in life comes when you get to drag your kids to a place they hate and will always remember as a psychologically scaring family outing. This is what makes having children worthwhile. We made the bison range just at closing and didn’t see so much as a sparrow for nearly the entire drive. That is, until we came around a bend in the road and suddenly were surrounded by an entire buffalo herd. The bulls blocked the sunlight from the windows of our car as they rubbed up against it with their big butts. It was a great educational moment. Katy did what all good girls do. She said we were all going to die and it was all her “stupid brother’s fault.” There is nothing like a family outing to bring everyone together with happy postcard memories. What made me think of this Hallmark

occupation (B&O) tax on the very businesses that cause the damage to our streets and roads. The council finally adopted a puny $5 million dollar B&O tax with more loopholes than Swiss cheese. The list of exempted business types reads like the business section of the Kent phone book. Businesses like Boeing and other major companies and warehouse distributors can surely afford to pay more to the city in which they do business. It’s obvious that chamber bigwigs lobbied for exemptions for their businesses. Even with that minimal B&O fund, the chamber now wants to dictate to the city exactly how the city can use the funds and on which projects.

If you have graffiti and are unable to remove it, please let the Kent Downtown Partnership know

and we will help you to determine how to remove it. The KDP works directly with the city of Kent as one of the Adopt-a-Block participants to help remove graffiti, so we have most of the materials to do so. Please help us make our downtown a destination that people feel good about visiting by helping us to keep it clean and free of graffiti and debris. Each one of us can make a big difference.

DANCING, GRABBING THE WORLD’S ATTENTION Talented teen from Allegro Performing Arts Academy takes crown BY MICHELLE CONERLY mconerly@kentreporter.com

An online dance competition was something Marie Spieldenner and her family had never heard of before. Nonetheless, she decided to enter it. “It’s a chance to be judged again and also to continue to create exposure for yourself,” said Spieldenner’s mom, Carolyn. Come to find out for the Allegro Performing Arts Academy dancer, the combination of dance and the Internet unfolded into a new platform where her talents could be displayed for all the world to see. And from the results, the 14-year-old Kent girl made a great impression, winning her division in Dance Upon a Dream (DUAD), a new online competition created by Josh Horner, a judge on “Dancing with the Stars Australia” and choreographic consultant for Disney. “We create a hub, a vibe, an experience,” Horner said of the contest. “It’s exactly what performing is all about – sharing your gifts with the world.” To enter, Horner had families put to use the performance DVDs most buy after competitions.

Kent’s Marie Spieldenner’s exceptional skills were rewarded when she captured the teen jazz solo division in a worldwide online dance competition. COURTESY PHOTO “I thought why not use their videos to compete against each other and have it judged by all the superstars of the dance world,” Horner said. This simple vision exploded into a worldwide competition when Horner received more than 200 submissions from throughout the globe. Unlike most dance competitions where judges make the final calls, Horner implemented an online popular vote portion, encouraging everyone to vote for their favorite performances via the DUAD website.

Knowing this would help push her to center stage, Spieldenner got to work spreading the word. “Of course, I was on Facebook trying to tell everyone, ‘Please vote for me please,’ all around school,” Spieldenner said. “My cousins texted me and they’re like, ‘I sent a message to almost half of my contacts telling them to vote.’” Accounting for only 20 percent of the overall score, it wasn’t just the popular vote that helped Spieldenner win the teen jazz solo division. Her extensive background in dance shone a unique spotlight on her perfor-

mance that caught the judges’ eyes. Spieldenner has 11 years of dance experience under her belt. She won the Allegro Performing Arts Academy choreography competition two years in a row and finished 11th at the 2012 nationals last summer, in addition to a multitude of other dance accomplishments. So when she saw her choreographer Gina Starbuck announce on Facebook that she was judging a new, online competition, Spieldenner saw another opportunity for growth. “It was exciting,” Spieldenner said. “It was great to get that recognition. It’s one more thing to put on my resume.” Horner announced the winners through email notices and on a DUAD webcast. For Horner, the online engagement is something to be embraced and used to a dancer’s advantage. “We are driven by social media and share our experiences and talents online,” Horner said. “As we say in our mission statement, ‘Let the world know you’re here.’” Dance isn’t just an extracurricular activity for Spieldenner. Winning her division title for DUAD brings her one step closer to her overall goals as a dancer and future choreographer. “Dance is basically my whole life, but it’s worth it,” Spieldenner said.

THE MAKINGS OF MILITARY ROAD Lecture brings its history to life BY MARK KLAAS mklaas@kentreporter.com

Military Road weaves through South King County, connecting people to homes, schools and businesses. It remains an important corridor today, just as it has been for many years.

Thank you Kent for nominating us

BEST SALON

It carries its original name, follows its original route. As one of the oldest roads in the state of Washington, Military Road facilitated early settlement, opened important supply lines between strategically established military forts and became a productive thoroughfare long before the advent of Interstate 5 and other major highways. As local author and histo-

rian Karen Meador explains, the road was built behind the efforts of some influential personalities – notably Jefferson Davis – who went on to establish names for themselves during the Civil War era. “The continuity (of the road) is what fascinates me,” Meador said. “It goes from a trail, to a native footpath to a wagon road … to many cases, a super highway.” [ more PROGRAM page 9 ]

LaRose said his organization was in the process of doing a feasibility study and contemplating a leaseto-buy option with the building’s owner. But after meeting with downtown groups, LaRose and the mission decided to forego the project. Sides were willing to openly discuss the site. The location, however, remained a problem for the downtown community. “We want an outcome that will help our homeless without hindering our businesses,â€? said Barbara Smith, KDP executive director, in a statement. It is the latest setback for the Union Gospel Mission, KentHOPE and partners and their bid to open a shelter. The groups proposed to transform a

two-story, 5,700-squarefoot publicly owned building on East Meeker Street into a day center and overnight homeless shelter last year. A majority of downtown business owners voiced strong opposition to the idea, saying a shelter would have a negative impact on the area. Based on feedback from focus groups examining the idea of a proposed shelter, Kent city officials last April decided not to proceed with a request to use the former city Resource Center at 315 E. Meeker St. for any specified use. The Union Gospel Mission and KentHOPE indicated they would finance the shelter through fundraising efforts by tapping into its network of donors, churches and foundations. Undaunted, the proshelter group plans to pursue another location. No specific spots have been identified at this time, LaRose said.

[ PROGRAM from page 8 ]

KentHOPE and the Union Gospel Mission have joined efforts to find solutions to reduce homelessness. They vow to do just that, with cooperation and support from the city. “We intend to work promptly to respond to the need for a 24-hour shelter in our community as recommended by Kent’s Homeless Task Force,� said Pat Gray, chairperson of KentHOPE. “However, we are actively seeking to work with businesses and the city of Kent to collaborate on issues and solutions that work for everyone in the Kent community. We look forward to actions that will make a positive difference in the lives of homeless people in Kent that provide pathways out of homelessness.� Gray said KentHOPE and the mission highly value positive relationships with businesses, city and the community in general. While it is a daunting challenge to open a shel-

local history to life.

Admission is $10 for GKHS members, $12 for nonmembers and $5 for students. Meador once lived in Biloxi, Miss., near Davis’ estate.

ter, negotiating parties are encouraged by the positive channel of communication. Groups hope to build “impactful relationships that will tackle this tough project,â€? LaRose said. “It’s not easy to create a shelter. There’s a lot of (work) that goes into it. I am really encouraged as to what’s going on right now. “It’s a big deal. ‌ We feel like the more partners we have ‌ the more success we are going to have long term.â€? In addition to addressing specific issues raised by the community, Gray said the organizations will coordinate and participate in community meetings, offer seminars on homelessness, welcome additional partners/supporters, and continue to search for alternate locations for a shelter.

that era, a time of westward expansion and the settlement of the far reaches of a growing country. Davis, as Meador points out, played a significant role. A West Point graduate, he fought in the Mexican-American War as a colonel of a volunteer regiment. Before and after his time in President Franklin Pierce’s administration (1853-57), he served as a Democratic U.S. senator who argued against secession, but did agree that each state was sover-

State Senate bill to reduce emergency medical services modeled after Kent program vices needs in a timely and cost-effective manner,� said Keiser in a Senate Democrats media release. “It will keep residents with chronic health needs from going to the emergency room, and that keeps down costs.� The program connects callers in non-emergency situations to primary care providers, health care professionals, low-cost medication programs and other social services. FD Cares programs must measure, at least annually, the reduction of repeated use of 911 emergency systems and reduction of avoidable emergency room trips attributable to the program. Results containing these findings must be reported to the Legislature or local governments upon request.

REPORTER STAFF

The Senate passed a bill Wednesday in Olympia modeled after the successful FD Cares program developed by the Kent Fire Department. The bill now goes to the House for consideration. Senate Bill 5145, sponsored by Sen. Karen Keiser-D, Kent, allows fire departments throughout the state to use the FD Cares model to connect 911 callers with nonemergency needs as a way to get access to community services. The goal is to improve health outcomes while reducing waste and expenses. “The FD Cares program will help people connect with the appropriate level of health care and social ser-

As Secretary of War during Pierce’s administration, Davis played a key role in bolstering forces, creating roadways and railways and improving other settlement conditions in the burgeoning Pacific Northwest. He served with distinction and was recognized as

one of the most capable administrators to hold the office. “Davis did a lot to make all that happen,� Meador said. “He doubled the size of the U.S. Army, got a lot of forts built throughout the West, including here (Steilacoom, Vancouver, Bellingham). “He always had been a champion of building wagon roads as well as the rail lines,� Meador added.

Speaking of that “un buon servizio� (good service): Raftis said that if an item isn’t on the menu, and he has the ingredients for it, all a customer has to do is ask for it. “If it’s not on the menu, we’ll make it,� he said. Raftis, a marathoner, also is living proof you can eat Italian and be healthy. In fact, one of his signature dishes, Fettuccine Paolo, was featured in Runner’s World magazine, for its low-fat, flavorful appeal. “It’s one of the dishes I developed,� he said. “It has no cream in it, no butter.� It’s a delicious pasta dish that utilizes olive oil, garlic, chicken stock, balsamic vinegar, grilled chicken, sun-dried tomatoes and artichokes. In addition to a full lunch, dinner and dessert menu, Paolo’s also features a four-course meal for $20.99, weekly wine specials, and cooking classes every six to eight weeks. “We can get 12-15 people in each class,� he said. Paul thanks each of you for choosing to dine at Paolo’s so often over the years.

Heritage Bank: Your Partner for Success

Lifelike Dentures is a new family practice with deep roots. Denturist, Michael Holden, leads the practice. Michael grew up in the world of dentures. He inherited the profession from his father, Ken Holden L.D., who helped pioneer Denturism in Oregon and Washington. Michael graduated from the University of Oregon and attended George Brown Technical College, where he completed the Denturist Program. Michael became a licensed denturist in 2006. Since becoming licensed Michael worked at Natural Dentures where he ran offices in Salem, Corvallis and West Linn, OR. Michael loves helping patients who have been miserable and uncomfortable with their dentures, discover how comfortable and confident they can feel in their new dentures. Before becoming Lifelike Dentures, the practice was called S&W Denture Center, owned and operated by Sam Weisanant. Beginning May 1, 2012 the Holden’s officially began Lifelike Dentures, a new practice that picks up where Sam left off. Michael and his wife,

What makes a great law firm involving just about every kind of charge imaginable, from invalid drivers licenses to aggravated murders. “We’ve enjoyed being able to bring our trial and criminal defense experience into the private sector,” said Greg. “Our firm has grown to 17 lawyers, so we have lawyers who can answer just about any legal question that comes up. Having bilingual lawyers and assistants has also been very helpful.” “Sometimes people may think I only handle murder cases. That’s not true. While we can handle every type of criminal charge you may face, a high percentage of our cases involve DUI’s. We also handle a lot of cases involving drugs, sex offenses, juvenile offenses, and domestic violence charges.” Mark said. The criminal department added associate attorney Erik Olsen two years ago. Erik handles mostly driving offenses, fishing and wildlife violations, expungement of criminal history, and restoration of gun rights. So, for ANY type of criminal case, no matter how major or how minor, give Hanis Irvine Prothero a call for a free ½ hour consultation.

I never dreamed I would be a chiropractor. It all started following the cesarean birth of my daughter. When I lifted her out of her crib, I would get terrible back spasms that kept me from straightening up. I tried all kinds of stretching exercises on the floor, even squatting at the kitchen sink. I found only temporary relief. However, with chiropractic I found not only relief, but also an understanding that nerve interference was affecting my body’s natural ability to heal. Chiropractic didn’t just change my way of looking at health and healing, but my whole way of living, for myself and my family. The focus became Inside Out versus Outside In. Reducing nerve interference on the inside, freed energy for greater ease of movement, as well as better bodily function. More energy could be used for healing, growing, creating, performing and all other physiological works, as well life experiences that are fun and worthwhile. The results I experienced through chiropractic didn’t stop there. I knew I wanted to share this amazing understanding and potential with others, so I left my work in cardiac rehab at the Heart Care Center. Café of Life Chiropractic & Wellness Studio has been in Kent for 12 years. We’re here to offer you the best in

chiropractic and wellness. Despite our name, we don’t serve food or coffee! We do, however, often chat about eating to nurture your body. We also chat about what nurtures your spirit and brings joy to your life. Our focus is vibrant wellness for you, your family, and future generations. The foundation is freeing up nerve flow through gentle chiropractic adjustments. Your participation includes exercise, nutrition, sleep, positive attitude, and gratitude. Are you looking to not get by or survive, but truly thrive and flourish? Then we can potentially help! My passion is educating, inspiring, and motivating my clients to be proactive about living more fully. It’s more than just an adjustment, it involves a new way of living. If I can help you have greater nerve flow, energy, and express more of your potential, at any age, it is not only a dream I want to dream, it’s one I choose to live. “It’s not just about getting rid of pain. It really is more about feeling healthy, vibrant. I feel much more at ease and energetic.” -L.F. “Cheryl’s intention is pure, her spirit is guided and her hands know what to do.” -Q.C.

The Kent law firm of Hanis Irvine Prothero is approaching its tenth anniversary. The firm opened its doors in July of 2003. Founding partners Cynthia Irvine and Mike Hanis wanted to start a full-service law firm to serve people in south King County, so that instead of going to Seattle, Bellevue, or Tacoma, people could find the highest-quality legal advice and representation right here in Kent. At first, there was no criminal defense department. But after several months in business, Mike and Cynthia recognized the need for an experienced criminal law attorney. As Mark Prothero recalls, “I really enjoyed my work as a public defender, but when Mike asked me to join his firm, I thought it was the right move. I asked Greg [Girard] to leave our public defender office and join me at the Hanis Irvine firm. Fortunately, he agreed.” So, in May of 2004, Greg and Mark joined the firm as partners, bringing more than 60 years of combined experience representing folks accused of criminal offenses. The next year, Greg and Mark were named “Trial Lawyers of the Year” by Presumed Innocent magazine. Greg and Mark have been involved in hundreds of jury trials in cases

... SENIOR LIFESTYLES Take, for example, the movie “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel,� which turned out to be one of the longest-running box office hits this year. In it, a group of retirees from England goes off to India (of all places) to start a new life that appears

to be easier and more enjoyable than everything they’ve left behind. There is affordable health care, cheap housing, and, surprisingly enough, even job opportunities open up for those who have the courage to seek them. Some things may be a little chaotic, but that’s all part of the fun when you no longer need to stress over small stuff. Unlike for its forbearers, retirement for this generation – so we are told – is a new beginning rather than a move closer to the end. The defining word now is “adventure,� which, of course, comes from the Latin term for “arrival.� Instead of fading away, this is the time to (finally) come into one’s own. This unprecedented optimism about the prospects of old age is also big business. Just look at the self-help industry that thrives on people’s willingness to change their lives and start over again and again. Instead of the twilight zone, the later stages in life are now called the “Power Years� (to quote one title among countless best-selling books on the

and as a nation. But is all this actually achievable or just wishful thinking? A much different, one might say, pessimistic, take on aging comes from Susan Jacoby, author of “Never Say Die – The Myth and Marketing of the New Old Age� (Vintage Books, 2011). Jacoby agrees that baby boomers have many advantages that were unheard of in the past. “Many old people today – if they are in sound financial shape, if they are in reasonably good health, and if they possess functioning brains – can explore an array of possibilities that did not exist even a generation ago.� However, she continues, “at some point, nearly every baby boomer will have to cope with the shattering of vanity and self-delusion about the capacity to remain, as the song goes, forever young.� To be sure, there is nothing wrong with trying one’s utmost to stay physically fit, mentally sharp, socially engaged and curious about the world. But we must also remain realistic about our natural limitations. More importantly, we must be aware that our aging process starts at birth. While this may sound a bit dramatic, it is undoubtedly true that taking care of our well-being is equally important at every stage in life. The healthier we eat and the more we exercise, the better in shape we are, the better we can deal with life’s challenges, the more intact we come out at the other end. Life is what you make it, as the saying goes. So, let’s not wait until it’s almost too late, let’s make life as good as it can be right now.

subject), a time to break with traditional roles and an opportunity for reinvention and creativity. “Due to longer life spans, economic uncertainty, and the mass rejection of yesterday’s model of old age, yesterday’s model of retirement is being transformed,� wrote the two lifestyle gurus and bestselling authors of “Power Years� (Wiley, 2005), Ken Dychtwald and Daniel J. Kadlec. “Instead of viewing the years ahead as a time of decline, retreat, and withdrawal, we are coming to see this as a terrific new opportunity to reevaluate our lives, consider new options, and chart new courses.

Chase Bublitz claimed two titles at the Class 4A state high school Boys Swimming and Diving Championships last weekend in Federal Way. Bublitz, a junior at Kentridge, posted automatic AllAmerican times for both the 100-yard and 200 freestyles at the Weyerhaeuser King County Aquatic Center. “I’m really happy with how it went,” Bublitz said. “My two individual (events) were my best times, and my relay splits were insanely fast.” Bublitz began the meet with an easy victory in the 200, stopping the clock in 1 minute, 39.51 seconds, an automatic All-American standard. He came back in the 100, posting a 45.21 – another automatic All-American time – and edging Stadium’s Andrew Lackman for the win. Bublitz switched from the

50 freestyle and 100 butterfly to the 100 and 200 freestyles this year, a decision he and his coach made earlier in the season. The Chargers’ humble leader in the pool won titles in the 50 freestyle and 100 fly last year. “I asked for his opinion on what he wanted in the state meet, and I decided whether or not to allow him to swim those events because it’s all about teamwork,” said Kentridge coach Mike Dobner. “I wanted to have successful teamwork throughout the season.” Bublitz delivered at state. He joined Nick Watson, Brenton Ho and Aaron Connell to finish second in the 200 freestyle relay (1:29.40), just behind Issaquah (1:28.95). Bublitz anchored the relay. These titles are just steps toward Bublitz’s goal this year of making the cut for the Junior Summer Nationals Cup in Irvine, Calif., something he missed out

Local wrestlers place at state REPORTER STAFF

Two Kent-Meridian High School wrestlers finished in the top three Saturday at Mat Classic XXV, the state championship tournament at the Tacoma Dome. Kent-Meridian senior Joshua Smith struggled in the 138-pound 4A state title match after injuring his ankle late in the first period. Down 3-2, Smith couldn’t hold off Yelm’s Dillon Harris, who took Smith down on the edge of the circle halfway into the second period. Harris was able to get Smith on his back and got the pin with 45 seconds left in the period. After the match ended, Smith limped off the mat, then sat down,

clearly still hampered by the injury. Thomas Kemp, also a senior at Kent-Meridian, capped off his career with a third-place finish at 195. Kemp defeated Joseph Meyer of Puyallup 2-1 to earn the bronze. Elsewhere, Kentridge senior Arthur Sargent finished fourth at 145 pounds. Kentwood’s Josh Boekelman took seventh at 170, closing out his tournament with a win. Kentlake’s Nick Smith took home sixth place at 106 while teammates Josh Beckler finished eighth at 145 and Tyler Deskins took fifth at 285 by winning his final match of the tournament 3-1 in overtime.

Ashley Pernell wasn’t sure she wanted to return to gymnastics after tearing her ACL two years ago. But the Kentlake High junior returned and excelled. She placed eighth in the all-around competition, fourth in the floor event and fifth on vault at the state gymnastics meet Feb. 15-16 at the Tacoma Dome Exhibition Hall. The meet marked a long road back from the injury. “I was doing a tumbling pass and I was doing a one and a half and just landed wrong,� Pernell said. “I just heard my knee make this really loud noise.� The injury led to Pernell, a Kentlake High School junior, sitting out her sophomore gymnastics season, and some hesitancy when it came to getting back in the gym. “I didn’t want to get hurt again, didn’t know what I could – what skills I had,� Pernell said. At the time Pernell was

me in when I was little and I really like it a lot.� The road back from her injury was a long one and involved Pernell trying a couple new sports in the process. “I got hurt in January, had surgery in March, barely could start walking a month later, and had physical therapy for six months,� Pernell said. “The end of my sophomore year I did track. That was what got my knee back in shape.� Pernell also joined a club cheerleading team. “That’s a bunch of tumbling and stretching,� Pernell said. Pernell said it was the encouragement of one of her good friends, who was also on the gymnastics team, which helped her decide to try gymnastics again. “My mom was really surprised,� Pernell said. “And my dad was really happy.� Despite her injury and time off it only took about a month for everything to come back to her, Pernell said.

Finding a solution: Kent Mayor Suzette Cooke, along with surrounding city officials, are forming a group to press for transportation funding for Washington state. ROBERT WHALE, Auburn Reporter Dowdy quoted a local road contractor who told him recently that it would take about $170 million over 10 years – 30 percent of it going to labor – to get the last-mile freight routes back into top condition. The same contractor, Dowdy said, estimated that a full 65 percent of every paving dollar spent in the region every year returns to the local economy in the form of jobs, services and more. Most of the cities consider ports and the infrastructure required as “absolutely a necessity� for the region’s survival, said Lewis. Valley mayors have recently been looking at what is happening with the port in Savannah, Ga., where the total investment is up to $600 million, and with the ports of New York and Detroit, which are adding $80-100 million projects to their list. “I think it’s time that we do something like that,� Lewis said.

Lewis said Auburn is at a crossroads, and that its City Council may change ordinances to allow multi-family uses on what at present are warehouse, industrial and distribution areas. The city, he said, would still have manufacturing, but the warehousing and distribution capability will start going away because the city doesn’t have any way to replace the yearly $3 million it lost to the Streamlined Sales Tax and the $30 million it lost to voter initiatives. Previously, Washington retailers collected local sales tax based on the jurisdiction from which a product was shipped or delivered – the “origin� of the sale. Today they must collect based on the destination of the shipment or delivery – the “destination� of the sale. State Transportation Commissioner Chair Dan O’Neal cited past successes with Fast Corridors, a now defunct program that once funded 16 local construc-

shows us. ‌ Everything is a priority. So find ourselves in no position to maintain let alone improve the infrastructure and we are finding our partners at the federal and state levels also without money ‌ We have to shift the paradigm, because we can’t rely on way it’s always been.� Cooke also stressed the need to educate the public about what’s at stake. Last April, voters in Auburn rejected a $59 million road bond to pay for maintenance

and repair on the city’s arterials. And she offered her assistance to whatever the new group becomes. “Let’s look at how we can, perhaps, realign the focus. Because what is of interest to the ports is of interest as a base support for economic development for all of us. I also know that from my perspective as a mayor ‌ at this local level, literally, is where the rubber meets the road, or where (things) happens,â€? Cooke said.

and maintenance, the fallout would cripple the local economy, hand much of the Port of Tacoma’s business to aggressive rival ports on the Gulf and East coasts, and possibly reduce the Port of Tacoma to “a backwater� among ports. “The reality is if our freight doesn’t move, and if we don’t remain in a competitive position, we’re going to lose,� said Port of Tacoma Commissioner Don Meyer. “We’re talking about how to make Puget Sound successful,� added Auburn Mayor Pete Lewis, whose city is part of the fourth largest warehouse and manufacturing base on the West Coast. “Because if we don’t, there are enough cases in history of backwater ports that just kind of dwindled out of existence, and the peoples’ jobs with them.� In the end, officials agreed to form a new coalition to press state and federal governments for funding. Auburn Public Works Director Dennis Dowdy struck a sober note, displaying a survey map listing the current conditions of local freight routes within the various cities, those routes being the so-called “last mile,� of the link between warehouse and port. Most of those “last-mile routes,� are deteriorating, their traditional funding sources wasted by initiatives, the state’s passage of the Streamlined Sales Tax in 2008 and the protracted recession. “The map tells us that we’re losing the battle, and generally how fast we are losing the battle,� Dowdy said, adding that the nine cities that are the heart of the valley’s industrial and warehousing base have a backlog of about $127 million worth of road work that must be done.

tion projects designed to speed up the passage of freight along streets. Among those projects was the Charles Booth Bridge over C Street and the bridge over the railroad tracks on South 277th. Fast Corridors, O’Neal said, was a model of cooperation. “The problem is that a lot of that money was federal money, and the money, called ‘earmarks,’ is no longer there, or least it hasn’t been,â€? O’Neal said. “We finished about 16, 17 of the 30 projects, and then it drifted off because a lot of the federal money was gone. We are going to need another push for federal support, but we also are also going to need to get state attention.â€? Meyer said proponents must tackle the problem from a systems standpoint. Yes, he said, State Route 167 or 509 are important, but to get a tangible return on the investment, everybody needs to make sure that the last mile works as well as the major projects. “Fast Corridors was a good project, but it was also multiple projects implemented in a unifying way that worked for everybody. It worked for the ports, and it worked for the local communities that were impacted. ‌ We need to be unified in the policy advocacy piece at all levels at this stage ‌ The problem in this country is that we treat infrastructure funding as if it’s optional and it’s partisan. It has to be a nonpartisan issue,â€? Meyer said. Kent Mayor Suzette Cooke said her city lost $5 million yearly to Streamlined Sales Tax and that the loss of those funds has crippled the city’s ability to pay for street maintenance and repair. “We are in a dilemma now. We can’t say we have this long list of priority projects, it’s like everything’s a priority, and that’s really what (Dowdy’s) map

A vote is scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 26 by the King County Flood Control District Board of Supervisors about whether to approve a city of Kent plan to repair a Green River levee to improve flood protection and reduce insurance rates. The nine-member board (composed of the members of the Metropolitan King County Council) will meet at 1:30 p.m. in Room 1001 at the King County Courthouse, 516 Third Ave., in downtown Seattle. The flood district’s executive committee voted 3-1 on Feb. 7 to recommend to the full board to choose the estimated

$17 million Kent proposal to build a flood wall along the 2.5-mile BriscoeDesimone levee. The county has proposed setback levee options estimated at costs of more than $63 million and up to $416 million because of the need buy property and move businesses to expand the levee. The committee hired a consultant to recommend a repair plan after it could not decide the best proposal to spend millions of dollars to repair the levee that stretches from South 180th Street to South 200th Street. The consultant favored the Kent proposal. If the levee repair plan is approved, Kent officials plan to begin work this summer.

Time to control early attack of the weeds First line of defense: Check all new plants, especially the drainage holes of pots for this hitchhiking weed that sneaks into gardens by hiding under the foliage of plants you bring home from the nursery. Next check the cracks of the sidewalks, seams of cement walkways and damp, gravel areas for shot weed colonies. This weed loves damp, cool soil and when the seeds shoot about the garden, they can land in the most unlikely places. Shot weed will even multiply and go to seed in roof gutters and garden walls. Smother power: Hand weeding

seedlings or springblooming pansies. You may also need to sprinkle slug bait near flowering bulbs. Shot weed – March right out and take aim now. Shot weed is the white flowering, low growing little weed with green leaves arranged in a circular whirl around the central flower stalk. It got its name for the way it shoots its seed, machine gun style all over the garden. The irritating fact is that this is a recent introduction to Western Washington gardens, brought into our area from nursery flats and potted plants.

The end of February is all about the weeds. The start of longer days and warmer weather means that annual weeds will be sprouting up anyplace they can find open ground and early spring is the time to get control and become a first-responder to this attack. The end of February and the beginning of March is also when you see the first blooms of yellow sunshine in the form of bright gold forsythia and cheery yellow daffodils. Let the color yellow be your warning light - the slugs are now awake and about and you’ll need to be proactive and make the first strike if you want to protect newly emerging lettuce

an infestation of shot weed is a tedious and wet job in early spring but even weed-killing herbicides will not stop shot weed this early in the year. The most practical approach is to smother large colonies of shot weed with sheets of damp newspaper. Local newspapers that run a garden column are the best form of organic weed block. In pathways and other areas where you will not be adding plants you can use cardboard, old carpet scraps or any heavy material that blocks out sunlight to smother the shot weed. In garden beds cover the newsprint with a fresh

Instead of stimulating the root system with a tug, sharpen up and cut back these weeds to ground level. Yes, they will resprout and grow more top growth. Then you’ll have to cut again to ground level and then in a month or two cut back the fresh growth once again. It often takes three cuts over three months to weaken the extensive root system and get control of these weeds.

Tender of payment or performance must be in the full amount by certified funds or cash equivalent to the Trustee whose address is:Denise Lukins Law Office of Denise J. Lukins 10000 NE 7th Avenue, Suite 403 Vancouver, WA 98685 (360) 448-2854 dlukins@lukinslaw.com V. The above-described real property will be sold to satisfy the expense of sale and the obligation secured by the Deed of Trust as provided by statute. The sale will be made without warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances on March 08, 2013. The default(s) referred to in paragraph III must be cured by February 25, 2013 (11 days before the sale date), to cause a discontinuance of the sale. The sale will be discontinued and terminated if at any time on or before February 25, 2013 (11 days before the sale date) the default(s) as set forth in paragraph III are cured and the Trustee’s fees and costs are paid. The sale may be terminated any time after February 25, 2013 (11 days before the sale date) and before the sale by the Borrower, Grantor, any Guarantor, any successor in interest, or the holder of any recorded junior lien or encumbrance paying the entire principal and interest secured by the Deed of Trust, plus costs, fees, and advances, if any, made pursuant to the terms of the obligation and/or Deed of Trust, and curing all other defaults. This is an attempt to collect a debt and any information obtained will be used for that purpose. VI. A written notice of default was transmitted by the Beneficiary or Trustee to the Borrower and Grantor and the Occupants at the following address(es): Jack Clayburn 27421 144th Avenue Southeast Kent, WA 98042

VII. The Trustee whose name and address are set forth below will provide in writing to anyone requesting it, a statement of all costs and fees due at any time prior to the sale. VIII. The effect of the sale will be to deprive the Grantor and all those who hold by, through or under the Grantor of all their interest in the above-described property. IX. Anyone having an objection to the sale on any grounds whatsoever are afforded an opportunity to be heard as to those objections if they bring a lawsuit to restrain the sale pursuant to the Re-

vised Code of Washington, Chapter 61.24.130. Failure to bring such a lawsuit may result in a waiver of any proper grounds for invalidating the Trustee’s Sale. Service of process of any lawsuit or legal action may be made on Denise J. Lukins, whose address is: Law Office of Denise J. Lukins 10000 NE 7th Avenue, Suite 403 Vancouver, WA 98685 X.
