She has met people from all walks of life; from children to city council members and she relishes the diversity. Gamble credits all of her success and motivation to her parents, Steve and Linda Gamble. Princess Taylor Friend attends Bonney Lake High School. When she isn’t busy being a princess, she participates in Panther Club, ASB, Leo’s Club and keeps busy with AP classes.

More than four months after Enumclaw teenager Justin Relathford was killed as he walked along state Route 410 – strolling hand-in-hand with his girlfriend – a suspect is facing charges. Buckley resident Cody R. Money, 20, will be arraigned Thursday in King County Superior Court. He was arrested March 20, charged with vehicular homicide, and bail was set at $50,000. It was 8 o’clock on Oct. 31 – last Halloween night – when Relathford, 16, was walking along SR 410 with his 15-year-old girlfriend. He had just insisted that they trade places, that she stay away from the lanes of travel for her own safety. According to charging papers provided by the King County Prosecutor’s

Though she loves the area, she is most proud of the community’s response during times of need. She said that it’s beautiful to see everyone in Bonney Lake come together. She adores children and looks forward to being an inspiration for younger girls. During her own childhood, Friend often watched the Daffodil princesses and dreamt of joining their ranks one day. “This is a dream come true for me,” she said. “As a little girl, I practiced my princess wave until I perfected it.” Princess Marissa Gregg attends Sumner High School and works at Happy Pho Time in Bonney Lake. Her spare time is often spent doing cheer and leadership. As a Daffodil Princess, Gregg encourages others to take risks and always be themselves. The process of becoming a Daffodil princess has been an awe inspiring experience for her.

Snider piles up the miles as FFA president

Dinner, auction to help fund travel expenses

By Kevin Hanson Senior Writer

The FFA organization – known to earlier generations as Future Farmers of America – offers plenty of exciting opportunities for travel both outside the state of Washington and abroad. Snider has a short list of favored destinations that includes Puerto Rico and Mississippi. To help finance Snider’s travel expenses, a fundraiser is planned for March 23 at the Buckley Eagles. The event runs from 4 to 8 p.m. To purchase $10 tickets for the spaghetti dinner and silent auction, or to donate to Snider’s cause, contact Debbie Snider at Also, tickets will be sold at the door.

Congressman Doc Hastings. “For me, it’s been a dream come true,” said Snider, who recently turned 19. He has particularly enjoyed getting to know the diverse communities that dot the Washington map. Having grown up in Enumclaw, it was eye-opening to visit a school in Kahlotus – a tiny town in Franklin County – that is home to just a handful of high-school students. “Every little town in Washington…it

seems like I’ve been there,” Snider said. When asked how many days he’s been on the road since last May, Snider notes that it’s much easier to count the limited number of days he’s been home. Snider’s extensive Pacific Northwest travel – aside from being highly educational – has changed his college plans. A year ago he was considering Texas A&M or sticking closer to home and attending Walla Walls Community College before heading to Pullman and WSU. A trip to Big Sky Country has Snider thinking he’ll attend Great Falls University in Montana. One dream that remains is to become a teacher and, ideally, an FFA adviser.

His hectic schedule will come to an end with the 2013 state FFA convention, when a new president will take the reins of the organization. As one of his ceremonial duties, Snider will deliver a final speech, one that shapes up to be highly motivational. He will draw from his own experience – a student who was not born and raised on a farm but, nonetheless, set a goal and achieved it. When he first attended the state FFA convention as a freshman, he realized he someday wanted to run for the top office. “It’s all about inner drive,” he said. “‘Impossible’ is a word we use to convince ourselves to stop trying.”

Cole Snider once thought he would make the leap, as many young people do, directly from high school hallways to a college campus. His path diverted, however, when 2,000 other teens tabbed him to be their leader. Last May, nearing the conclusion of his senior year at Enumclaw High, Snider was elected president of the Washington State FFA, chosen from a handful of candidates by the throng of students who had gathered for the annual convention on the campus of Washington State University. In a matter of moments, college plans took a back seat to the dizzying array of demands that come with the post. Since his election, Snider has traveled throughout both the state and nation – along with a team of five other officers – representing FFA, touting the benefits of Career and Technical Education programs, promoting agriculture in general and honing their leadership skills. Early in his tenure came trips to Washington, D.C., and Indianapolis. Using family vehicles, Snider has hit the state’s back roads to meet with students in all corners of the Evergreen State. Between them, Snider and the others in the state leadership team have visited approximately 160 Washington schools, preaching the gospel of vocational education. A couple of weeks ago, Snider found himself in Olympia, meeting with Gov. Jay Inslee; at the nation’s capitol, Snider and the student delegation met with Washington

Public can comment on plans for coke ovens By Kevin Hanson Senior Writer

A civic desire to preserve Wilkeson’s historic coke ovens persists and citizens will soon get a peek at what a renovation project might look like. Spearheaded by Bryan Bowden of the National Park Service, a conceptual plan has been drafted. Included in the process was a barnstorming session in October that brought together community mem-

bers and landscape architects, which was followed by a public open house. Plans have been further refined and will be on display beginning at 6:30 p.m. March 27, during a hearing sponsored by the Wilkeson Town Council. Public comments on the plan will be taken at that time. The city has long talked about rehabilitating at least a few of the coke ovens, both as a source of community pride and potentially to attract visitors. Mayor

Donna Hogerhuis said a developed park could include everything from an amphitheater to a covered picnic area. A plan for Coke Oven Park also could include upgrades to the adjacent area used for the city’s annual Handcar Races celebration. The ovens were used in the early part of the 20th century to burn the impurities from the raw coal extracted from nearby mines, but now serve only as a reminder of Wilkeson’s boom times. During the course of many decades, the

ovens have fallen into disrepair. Weeds dominate the area and vandals have left their mark as well. There are approximately 30 coke ovens remaining, with some in much better condition than others. They stretch for approximately one-third of a mile and are part of a nine-acre parcel owned by the city of Wilkeson. While plans for Coke Oven Park have been drafted, an accompanying price tag has not been calculated.

Determined to turn dreams into reality, Wilkeson residents continue raising money to build a skate park for the small town’s youth. Still about $2,500 short of their goal, boosters will sponsor a rummage sale April 12-13 at Town Hall. While the date might be a few weeks off, organizers are now collecting donations. Anyone wishing to contribute can deliver goods to Town Hall between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Donations also can be picked up; make arrangements by phoning Trisha at 253255-2439. As part of the effort, park boosters continue to collect aluminum cans. They, too, can be delivered to Town Hall or picked up by appointment. The desire to have a skate park built near the center of town was initiated by Wilkeson youngsters and has been spearheaded by Kids for Community Improvement. That group was charged with raising $10,000 in cash, providing a match for a grant. As of last week, through a variety of fundraisers, park supporters had generated $7,463. They have until July to come up with remaining $2,537.

Path to happiness has twists, turns Not to state the obvious, but there is no single educational path that is right for everyone. For some students it will be attending a college or university, earning a bachelor’s degree and perhaps going on to a master’s, even a doctorate. For others it might be community college or an apprenticeship. The options are as numerous and varied as the career paths they lead to. There is a lot of talk in our local school systems about change and helping students to be successful once they graduate from high school. The first question that must be asked is how does one define success? Katherine Smith By educational debt? Maple ValleyBy current income? Covington Reporter By long-term earning potential? By life experiences and personal growth? By one of these things? By all of them? These are all things students should keep in mind when considering their end goal and the best way to get there. The bachelor’s degree has been getting a bad wrap lately in America. The recession and ensuing new reality that many 20-somethings are un- or underemployed has drawn criticism of the wisdom of teaching all students to aspire to college. Now we’re seeing school systems shift to how to get stu-

Not tops, but better than most If you’ve read these columns for any length of time, you may be surprised to learn I don’t care for the vast majority of U.S. cities, including celebrated centers like Baltimore, Houston, Minneapolis and Miami. I absolutely detest Los Angeles and Phoenix. Be that as it may, I’m very fond of New York City, which you probably realize – if you’ve read these columns for any length of time. Specifically, Manhattan. Make no mistake, this wayward columnist simply adores Manhattan. There are a few other cities I’m rather fond of. Places like Richmond, Va., San Francisco and New Orleans. The “Big Easy” is generally just another polluted, congested, urban mess, except for the French Quarter

– a 20-block district in the immediate downtown area – which is one of the most wonderful places I’ve ever lived. Closer to home, I also like Seattle. For the last 40-plus years, I’ve spent a great deal of time there; I can trace the evolution of my mind and personality through various scenes, sites and taverns scattered about the Emerald City, from the hippie trip in the Blue Moon through the disco

days in Pioneer Square to the grunge thing in Belltown. Then, of course, there’s the Pike Place Market, which is quite simply one of the most splendid inner-city districts in America. Other cities boast their farmers’ markets, but most of these are only feeble copies of Seattle’s and have no real history behind them. I used to live in an old wino hotel directly across from the market. (This was a long time ago; pre-gentrification, so to speak.) It was a marvelous place to live. I shared morning coffee with the fishermen and flower people and watched the bustling scene come to life around me. Relative to other urban centers, there’s an enormous amount of

Better attitudes, better schools How does teaching international high school students differ from teaching Americans of the same age? I retired from teaching social studies at Sumner High School after 31 years. For the past three years I have taught American history, government, and culminating project to primarily international students wishing to get their high school diplomas in America at Green River Community College in Auburn. The international students I’ve taught are from China and Vietnam, with some from South Korea, Japan and Indonesia. The vast majority of the American students I taught at Sumner were white and middle

class. There are some important similarities and differences between teaching the two groups that those concerned with improving schools might find informative. Attitude and effort: Most of the A and B American students are similar to Asians in their attitude toward

getting a good education. Among the middle and lower academic third of American students I taught, I found a big difference compared with Asians. Attitudes to school vary, but the main difference I have noticed is that in American schools it’s not cool to be too smart or too academic. Doing what makes you popular is the major driver of attitudes among this group. Research shows very bright students dumbing themselves down to be accepted. For the vast majority of American students “getting by” is the operative attitude. Do just enough to pass with

Not much is known about this early logging machine except for the fact that it was called a “Galloping Goose” and was manufactured by Pacific Car and Foundry in 1923. However, quite a bit is evident. It was an early “skidder” or tractor used to pull logs out of the woods. A large log hangs from the belly of the machine while the huge rear wheels had prominent tracks or spikes to help propel a heavy tractor through the muddy forest floor. The man standing beside the rear wheel gives an indication of its size. This photo comes courtesy of the Renton History Museum.

Puget Sound ESD 121 is the district that services Tahoma and Enumclaw and the regional committee on school district organization will oversee the petition process. Both Tahoma and Enumclaw will complete a transfer of territory checklist, in which they can detail reasons for opposing or supporting the transfer, that will be submitted to the committee along with Enumclaw’s petition. The next steps are mediation between the district facilitated by the ESD, and if they can’t come to an agreement then there will be a public hearing in the committee. The ESD received the petition from Enumclaw on March 4 according to ESD spokesman Peter Daniels. Daniels said that the timetable for transfer petitions varies. “The goal initially is to mediate,” Daniels said. “It seems both, with Enumclaw being for and Tahoma being against, are firmly camped in their positions.” After both districts are notified by the ESD they will have 90 days to meet and try to negotiate the transfer. “The goal is to try to have, at the lowest level, the districts reach an agreement,” Daniels said.

The Enumclaw School Board decided it will continue to pursue a land transfer from the Tahoma School District to Enumclaw and formally submit a petition to the Puget Sound Educational Service District. Tahoma received a letter from Enumclaw March 4 informing the district that Enumclaw would be continuing to pursue the transfer. The land in question is an approximately 54 acre portion that is zoned for commercial use in the master planned developments of YarrowBay, according to the Tahoma School District.

CHARGED FROM 1 Office, Money was driving his 2005 Nissan Titan pickup in the westbound lane, with his 17-year-old girlfriend sitting in the passenger seat. Court documents note that both Money and his girlfriend looked down when his cell phone either rang or vibrated. The pickup drifted over the fog line and, according to police reports, was almost entirely on the paved shoulder of the highway when Relathford was struck. He was thrown into a ditch along the road and died at the scene. Money stopped his vehicle about 200 feet from where the teen was hit. Standing on the roadside, he told officers he had smoked marijuana about eight hours earlier and that

he may have taken the drug Suboxone at 5 that morning. A laboratory analysis of his blood painted a different picture. According to toxicology reports, he had smoked marijuana, at most, a couple of hours before the fatal accident. Carefully crafting their tale of Money’s drug use, prosecutors noted eight bongs were found in his pickup. As for Money’s claim he had used Suboxone, blood tests showed no evidence of that medication. Instead, it was determined he had used Oxycodone, a prescription narcotic used for pain relief. There also was a discrepancy between what Money and his 17-year-old girlfriend told investigators and what was determined by analysis of the scene. Both Money and his female

passenger offered versions indicating Relathford was walking on, or over, the white fog line. Police determined, however, the corner of Money’s truck was between 4 and 5 feet to the right of the fog line, traveling well into the paved shoulder of the highway. In requesting that bail be set at $50,000, the prosecutor’s office noted that Money had no prior criminal history. However, he has been guilty of a handful of moving violations and has been charged with three more violations since October’s tragedy. Aside from vehicular homicide, prosecutors added charges of possession of marijuana (less that 40 grams) and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Is joint replacement surgery right for you? By Dr. David Bishop For The Courier-Herald

Many people older than 40 have been tough on their knees, hips and other joints all their lives through activities like jogging, playing tennis or racquetball. In a quest to stay active and reduce pain, an ever-growing number of people are now turning to joint replacement surgery. Is orthopedic surgery, like knee or hip replacement, right for you? Only your primary-care physician and an orthopedic surgeon can determine the appropriate course of treatment. Even though joint replacements have a high success rate, you should take alternative steps to protect your joints. The Arthritis Foundation and the American

Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons suggest the following: • Maintain a healthy weight: losing extra pounds reduces stress, wear and tear on your knees, hips, back and Dr. David Bishop feet. • Exercise regularly: Physical activity protects your joints by strengthening the muscles that support them. • Swap high-impact sports for lowimpact activities: Instead of tennis or running, trying walking, swimming and/or playing golf. • Avoid repetitive stress: Alternating strenuous activities with rest puts less stress

on sensitive joints. • Use over-the-counter or prescription medications to control pain and inflammation: You should also ask your primary care physician about the benefits of receiving injections of corticosteroids directly into painful knee joints. • Take part in physical or occupational therapy: This can increase joint flexibility, muscle strength and range of motion. • Use mechanical aids: Braces, crutches, walkers and/or canes may offer some help. In the best of circumstances, these lifestyle changes may be enough to improve function and control pain in your hips, knees and other joints. Talk with your doctor about possible joint replacement if joint pain is disturbing your sleep; noninvasive therapy, including

pain medications, is not controlling your pain; joint pain is limiting your ability to keep up with your daily chores and routine; or if joint pain makes it difficult for you to get out of a chair, climb stairs or get out of bed. Through the years, surgical techniques have improved significantly and new materials have been developed for implants. As a result, joint replacement surgery has become one of the most dependable procedures performed today. Also, the Joint Camp program at Franciscan Health System hospitals helps to reduce patients’ anxiety about joint replacement surgery. Joint Camp removes the mystery from surgery by enabling small

are planning to purchase a new bike, buy it from a bike shop rather than a department store or warehouse club. You may pay more initially, but will receive greater value over time with a good fit and quality. Wear a pair of cycling shorts with a cushion in the seat area or cycling underwear with a padded liner to mitigate the initial pain of the saddle. Most riders need a few rides to align their body with the saddle. Always wear a properly fitting helmet and eye protection. Not only is this for safety but it’s the law in many cities. Move indoors for stationary cycling when the weather is bad and you can’t ride during daylight.

Don’t worry about microwave By Grant and Cathy Pritchard For The Courier-Herald

Question: Does cooking food in a microwave cause nutrient loss? Answer: This is a great question because microwaves are pervasive throughout society. In fact,

they’re a staple in almost every kitchen. Despite their popularity, many people are convinced that radiation from microwaves destroys nutrients. Thankfully, research does not back this up. The primary determinants of nutrient loss are cook time, cook temperature and the amount of liq-

uid used. In other words, any form of cooking can lead to nutrient loss, but microwaving is actually a better option. Microwaves do a great job of heating your food very quickly and microwaves heat at temperatures that are lower than most other forms of cooking. The water-soluble vitamins, B-complex and C, are easily the most susceptible to heat, and are commonly found in beans, fruits and

CYCLING FROM 8 Many facilities have indoor cycling or “spin” classes or spin bikes on their fitness floor. Another option is to purchase an indoor trainer that you mount your own bike to. You don’t want inclement weather to interrupt your training schedule. Work on consistency, attempt to maintain a steady pace or rpm (rotations per minute) no matter what terrain you are riding on. This may be easier to understand practicing on a stationary bike. Purchase a good pump, tube and basic tools and learn how to use them. You will be more confident knowing that you can make minor repairs while on the road. Which leads us to the next point... Know how to fix a flat tire.

FITNESS FROM 8 as you need to, but try to avoid using water in the cooking process to avoid leaching of those water-soluble vitamins. Question: I’ve never been the best sleeper. Is this having a negative impact on my overall health? Answer: Unfortunately, yes, it probably is. There is a lot of emerging research revolving around sleep (or the lack thereof) and its associated health implications. There’s some data now indicating that those who get just one night of poor sleep end up with abnormal lab values indicative of pre-diabetes. That’s right, prediabetes. Folks with poor sleep cycles can end up with suppressed insulin secretion after a meal, which leaves them with elevated blood sugar levels for far too long. They also have lowered resting metabolic rates, which could ultimately contribute to weight gain as well. Other researchers have discovered that hundreds of genes get disrupted after just one week of suboptimal sleep, thereby impairing the body’s ability to heal itself. Chronic sleep problems have been associated with heart attacks, stroke, diabetes, and obesity for years, but now we’re starting to see direct observations in the laboratory setting. In the end, optimal sleep is just as important as your fitness level and your nutritional status when it comes to overall health, so try to get at least 8 hours a night, and more when you can.

Question: I lift five days per week consistently, but my strength gains have flatlined. How do I continue to get stronger? Answer: Despite not having much information to go on here, let’s see if I can provide some insight. First of all, there’s the distinct possibility that you’re working out too much. Maybe your volume (the combination of sets and reps) is too high—a common problem for those looking to gain strength as quickly as possible. And how long has it been since you’ve taken some time off to allow your body to fully recuperate from the stress of exercise? Some much-needed rest may do the trick and, amazingly, people often come back even stronger. I also wonder if you’re changing up your workouts enough. Many people get into the habit of using machines or free weights, but then never gravitate toward other forms of exercise. Cables, tubing, bands, kettle bells, medicine balls and even bodyweight exercises can all increase strength, so you should try to vary up your routine regularly. Lastly, you have to remember that strength doesn’t just increase exponentially on a continual basis. There is a threshold that you’ll reach at some point, and you could be there already. If you feel like you need help with your current program, talk to a certified personal trainer.

Vivian Halkjar


Vivian’s greatest joy was her family. Her family would call on a moment’s notice to let her know they’d be by for dinner and put in their request for fried chicken, clam chowder, French toast or little pigs and bacon, all of which were her family’s favorites. She may have grumbled a bit, but by the time dinner came, everyone had been called and everyone would be there for dinner. Whenever her family came by the first stop was to the freezer to grab a cookie, or two. She kept it well stocked with everyone’s favorites. On the way out the door, they would take an entire container full of cookies. Vivian loved spending time with her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She babysat almost every one of them on a consistent basis well into her 80’s. If you stopped by during the day, chances are, at least one of them would be there. She is survived by her children Susan and husband Bud Whitehouse of Algona, Gail and husband Kevin Vollmer of Buckley, Diane and husband John Haines of Renton and Tom and wife Gina Halkjar of Buckley; 7 grandchildren, 11 great-grandchildren, several brothers and sisters and numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband Axel Halkjar. Memorials are suggested to the charity of your choice. Arrangements are by Weeks’ Funeral Home.

White River pounds Patriots in track opener By Kevin Hanson Senior Writer

The track and field season got off to a roaring start for White River High, as both the boys and girls teams easily whipped the Washington Patriots. The programs paired off Thursday afternoon under cloudy skies on the Buckley campus. White River’s boys defeated the

Patriots 90-41 and the Hornet girls were even more decisive, winning 104-39. A highlight of the afternoon was the boys 110-meter high hurdles, which featured two of the state’s best. In the end, White River’s Devin Liebel edged Washington’s Victor Gamboa, clocking a time of 14.47 seconds to Gamboa’s 14.53. Liebel was a two-time winner, also taking the

300-meter hurdle race. Other Hornet boys claiming top honors were Nick Wells, who won both the 100-meter and 200meter dash; Chris Fisher, tops in both the 800 and 1,600 meters; Austin May, 400 meters; Wes Fueston, 3,200 meters; Scott Anderson, shot put; Andrew Northam, long

jump; Spencer Wilson, pole vault; Sean Hayes, javelin; and both the 400- and 1,600-meter relay teams. Leading the way for the Hornet girls was Jade Crawford, who won three events on the day. She

topped the field in both the 100and 300-meter hurdle races, as well as the high jump. Other winners for the White River girls were Kacy Coyle, 3,200 meters; Johnna Coughlin, 100 and 200 meters; Madison Moser, 800 and 1,600 meters; Maddi Stinson, 400 meters; Amanda Lance, long jump; Madison Budinich, triple jump and pole vault; Megan Miller, javelin; and both the 400- and 800-meter relay teams.

The next-generation Ford’s Fusion represents a merging of high-fashion style with game- altering fuel economy, with significant technological treats coming along for the ride. The sedan’s primary eye-catcher is the dramatic roofline, suggesting kinship with the Audi A7, Volkswagen CC and CLS-class Mercedes-Benz. Another design highlight is the open-mouth grille that greatly differs from the previous triple-bar fixture. The Fusion’s fashion statement extends to the cabin, with its fancier trim, comfier seats and a freshly pressed control panel. The tailors at Ford also let out the Fusion’s pants and lengthened the cuffs a bit. The distance between the front and rear wheels increases by five inches and the width and height by about an inch. Trunk room is the only reduction spot (likely due to a shorter deck), but only by about six percent. The Fusion joins the Hyundai Sonata and 2013 Chevrolet Malibu in abandoning a V6 option, but eventually there will be no fewer than five distinctive engine picks, including two Prius-like gasolineelectric hybrid systems. It all begins with a 170-horsepower 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, while1.6- and 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder “EcoBoost” engines, worth 179 and 237-horsepower, respectively, are optional with the latter a requirement for all-wheel-drive Fusions. The 1.6 is billed as the thriftiest of the three, but in terms of fuel savings, the Hybrid and all-new Fusion Energi plug-in hybrid are really where it’s at. They arrive in the first quarter of 2013. Both employ a 141-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder combined with an electric motor to produce 188 net horsepower. The system increases maximum electriconly velocity to 62 mph from the previous 47, and resets the fuel-economy bar to 47 mph city and 44 highway from 41/36. The Hybrid also bests the league-topping Toyota Camry Hybrid’s 43/39 rating. The Fusion Energi plug ‘n’ play model use the same basic tech as the Hybrid, but Ford is projecting a 100-mpg equivalency rating with an as yet-to-be specified all-electric range. Newly available communications and safety content includes keep-you-inline lane-monitoring system, keep-yourdistance adaptive cruise control, confidence-boosting parking-spot assist and shoulder-check-augmenting blind spot and cross-traffic alerts. Buyers can also order the latest version of Ford’s “SYNC” voicecontrolled communications and entertainment wizard.

plan that nails it for style and fuel-pump avoidance.

Ford’s latest Escape represents a clean-sheet design-and-content approach to satisfy the needs of multi-continent buyers. The sleeker look is radically different from the outgoing version’s boxiness, however its slightly larger dimensions have resulted in greater rear-seat room plus slightly more passenger and cargo volume with the rear seat in place or folded flat. The interior is certainly inviting, with an attractively segmented gauge/control panel with asymmetric air vents. The floor shifter’s position at the base of the dashboard partially blocks the heating/ventilation controls, but makes the area designated for cupholders and armrest/storage more accessible. The up-level Titanium model features well-bolstered front seats that are a major advancement over earlier Escapes. The base front-wheel-drive S model runs with a 168-horsepower 2.5-liter four-cylinder, while the front- and all-wheel-drive SE designation uses a 178-horsepower 1.6-liter turbocharged “EcoBoost” four-cylinder. A 237-horsepower turbo four-cylinder (also from Ford’s “EcoBoost” engine lineup) is standard on the SEL and Titanium trims. A hybrid version won’t be available this time since Ford’s C-Max hybrid wagon uses that drive system. Sadly for a few “Escapees”, the six-speed manual gearbox has shifted away from the Escape lineup, leaving only a six-speed automatic (with a detent for manual gear selection) as the sole transmission. A new “Intelligent” all-wheel-drive system can be ordered with the turbocharged models. It continually assesses road conditions and driver inputs “about 20 times faster than the blink of an eye” and can shift up to 100 percent of the available power to either the front or rear wheels for maximum grip. The Escape is the first Ford to offer both Torque Vectoring Control and Curve Control to help distribute the correct amount of power to each wheel when cornering so that the vehicle maintains its intended path. A dashboard display screen lets the driver know where the power is being distributed. The new-tech gear extends to the option sheet, which is understandably lengthy, considering the Escape’s four distinct trims. But the most unique option is the power lifgate that automatically opens and closes when you shake your foot hokey pokey-style beneath the bumper (great when your hands are full of kids and/ or groceries).

The C-Max and its plug-in Energi counterpart represent Ford’s first dedicated hybrid brand. They’re based on Ford’s compact Focus architecture and have the same distance between the front and rear wheels and overall length as the Focus. However the C-Max is more than four-inches wider and half a foot taller, making it ideal for hauling people and their gear. Visually, the C-Max also shares a definite kinship with the Focus, notwithstanding the massive windshield that provides an unencumbered vista for all passengers. Cargo space is about equal to that of the Toyota Prius v wagon, but with the rear seat folded flat the C-Max has nearly one-third more space than its chief rival. Note, however that the C-Max Energi, with its more massive power system reduces overall cargo volume by about 20 percent. The flight-deck-style dashboard and control panel on both would look at home in the Starship Enterprise. The center stack houses an eight-inch touch-screen for climate, audio, hands-free phone and navigation controls and doubles as a backup camera that’s also standard. Meanwhile the gauge pod provides real-time fuel-economy readouts and driving efficiency as indicated by the number of green leaves displayed on an adjacent screen. There’s also a “Brake Coach” to help drivers maximize the regenerative braking system, keep the lithium-ion batteries topped up and maximize driving range. The C-Max and C-Max Energi hybrid’s powertrains consist of a 2.0-liter fourcylinder that produces 141 horsepower that works in tandem with a 106-horsepower (estimated) electric motor. The net system output is rated at 188 horsepower, which is 54 more ponies than the competing Prius v. A continuously variable transmission (CVT) sends the torque to the front wheels. Fuel economy is 47 mpg for both city and highway, compared with 44 city and 40 highway for the Prius v. Ford claims the Energi can run up to 85 mph on battery power alone and more than triple the Prius Plug-in’s maximum electric-only range (20 versus six miles). The base C-Max SE includes dual-zone climate control, 17-inch alloy wheels and seven airbags. The SEL adds leather seats (heated in front), 10-way power driver’s seat, rain-sensing wipers and satellite radio. Optional is a hands-free backup parking assist and a power liftgate that opens and closes by shaking your foot (a kicking motion, actually) beneath the bumper. The Energi plug-in lists for about $30,000 (including a $7,700 federal tax credit).

Base price: $25,200

ter four-cylinder connected to a five-speed manual transmission or optional twin-clutch automated manual; ST adds turbo and extra gear to handle 252 horses; optional all-electric drivetrain with 143-horsepower motor. After finally including North America in the new 2012 Focus party, Ford is aggressively expanding the guest list from both ends of the social spectrum. The new ST performance model takes all the positives of the new Focus and then adds a list of improvements aimed at buyers who would consider a Volkswagen GTI. The 2.0-liter “EcoBoost” turbocharged four-cylinder produces 252 horsepower and even features overboost with a giant slug of mid-range torque added. The ST is still front-wheel drive, but uses a stiffer suspension, bigger and stickier tires and a variety of electronic systems to make it a true back-road hero. The ST gets unique parts inside and out, including more supportive seats and only comes with a six-speed manual transmission. The other newcomer is the Focus Electric that features a 107-kilowatt (143-horsepower) motor and lithium-ion battery pack that can deliver a range of 76 miles. Ford claims that recharging takes just three to four hours from a 240-volt home station available for about $1,500 from electronics retailer Best Buy. Like the ST, the Focus Electric stands out from regular Focii thanks to an Aston Martin-esque grille and headlights, along with special wheels, low-rolling-resistance tires and other wind-cheating aids. Like other modern electrics, the Focus isn’t inexpensive with an MSRP of $39,200 before tax rebates and other incentives, but there aren’t many downsides if you can afford it. Both new Focus models only come in four-door hatchback form, but the “regular” cars can be had as sedans. That’s because it’s the only style available if you order the price-leader “S” that comes with manual climate control, tilt and telescopic steering wheel and basic four-speaker audio system and 15-inch steel wheels. The SE, SEL and Titanium trims get progressively more expensive for both sedan and hatchback. For the fuel conscious who don’t want to stretch up to the Electric, the optional SFE package - with its aero wheel covers, grille shutters, high-efficiency tires, four-wheel disc brakes and a rear spoiler - will achieve a 40-mpg highway rating. The standard 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine is rated at 160 horsepower and 146 pound-feet of torque. A five-speed manual transmission is standard on all models, while optional is a sixspeed dual-clutch automated manual gearbox. All models arrive with torque vectoring, which is a system that applies light braking pressure to slow down the inside wheel when the car is turning. This helps the Focus attack the corners with more precision by reducing the tendency to plow straight ahead (referred to as understeer).

A wide assortment of standard equipment (air conditioning, cruise control, keyless remote entry and power windows/locks/mirrors, etc.) comes in base versions, as does a new seven-inch touchscreen to work the standard audio system; moving up into the top-line models adds climate control, heated leather seats, 18- or 19-inch wheels, extra trim, and premium audio. With its friendly interior and thrifty power options, including a new optional safety package with collision alert, lane-departure warning and rear-park assist for 2013, the Equinox projects a more fashionable presence and one that appears eager to pack up the gang and tackle the tasks at hand.

2013 Chevy Equinox

Base price: $24,700



Rick Kranz 888-889-6199 1047 Hwy. 410 • Enumclaw

The Equinox is Chevrolet’s biggest bright spot through all its restructuring and replanning, and it’s no mystery why. Clever touches abound in the design, like the integrated rocker panels in the doors that reduce entry step-over height. (They also help keep pant legs from brushing up against the vehicle’s lower body area.) The interior is likely the Equinox’s best asset. It’s simply gorgeous and includes dual gloveboxes, easy-to-read twin gauges set in large pods and plenty of handy storage bins. There’s also a versatile split folding rear seat that can be adjusted fore and aft over an eight-inch range to optimize legroom or cargo capacity. A 182-horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder reigns as a base engine, with its 21/32 mpg city/ highway fuel economy that embarrasses some competitors. New for 2013 is an optional 3.6-liter V6 with 301 horsepower that outclasses the old 3.0-liter unit by 45

Custom Wheels, Tires & Leveling Kit included


Chevrolet’s popular compact Cruze continues to stretch its value even further with new standard equipment and some attractive option packages. The biggest changes include a MyLink radio (that streams music via Bluetooth), voice recognition and compatibility with Pandora Internet radio. A new seven-inch color touch stereo with navigation and USB port can be had on virtually every model, while new driver convenience packages include a number of useful options such as power seats, auto-dimming rearview mirrors, rear-vision camera and more. The rest of the interior remains a highly attractive seating area that wouldn’t look out of place in a more expensive sedan. There are plastic pieces to be sure, but they’re more than offset by plenty of soft-touch coverings for the wrap-around dashboard and silvery painted trim for the steering column, door-mounted speaker surrounds, steering wheel and shifter. Given the added size and fancier seating area, it’s surprising that the Cruze’s standard and optional powerplants are so diminutive. The base car is equipped with a 1.8-liter four-cylinder that produces 138 horsepower and 123 pound-feet of torque. Move up to the LT and LTZ you’ll

get and a smaller - less is more here - 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that’s also rated at 138 horsepower but with 25 pound-feet more torque than the base engine. The 1.8 offers a choice of a six-speed manual transmission, or optional six-speed automatic, while the 1.4 turbo is only available with the automatic. Continuing unchanged is the Eco model that uses the turbo engine with low-rolling-resistance tires, tweaks to the aerodynamics and other fuel-saving measures. The result? Fuel-economy ratings of 28/42 with taller ratios in the six-speed manual and a still-impressive 26/39 with the automatic. All Cruze models feature 10 airbags, including driver and passenger-side knee airbags plus rear side-impact airbags. In addition, the standard stability control includes a rollover-sensing program that will deploy the airbags if it detects the car is about to tip over. Notable new safety options include available rear park assist, blind-spot warning and rear cross-traffic alert, which is really useful when backing out in a busy parking lot. And we’re still waiting to see a hatchback version of the Cruze sometime soon.

Farrah Fawcett, Dom DeLuise, and Dean Martin star in this action-packed flick. • Gone in Sixty Seconds (2000): A retired car thief must get back into the business, stealing 50 cars in one night to save the life of his brother. Stars Nicholas Cage and Angelina Jolie. • The Fast and the Furious (2001): An undercover cop infiltrates the underbelly of Los Angeles street racers. This movie spawned a series of sequels with more automotive special effects than substance.

The thought of an eight-seat Buick people-mover being popular would have been laughed at a decade ago. But the stylish, luxurious Enclave is a genuine hit. For 2013, gets a thorough refresh inside and out. Everything forward of the A-pillar is all new, including sharper headlamps, LED running lights and more prominent fenders. The rear is familiar, although now accented by light-emitting-diode (LED) taillights. The vehicle’s impressive utility is unchanged thanks to three rows of seats with room for either seven or eight riders, depending on configuration. The second row slides to provide access to the spacious back row that’s actually habitable by adults. A twist of the key fires a 288-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 that operates through a six-speed automatic transmission. The Enclave begins as a front-wheel-driver, but all-wheel-drive is optional. As befits a Buick, the Enclave is all about luxury as well as practicality. Even base models include enough features to make German-

car owners jealous, and the Enclave’s new instrument panel, ambient lighting and softer materials will make them even more steamed. Safety is covered with seven airbags (including the industry’s first center-mounted airbag that protects from off-side crashes), a rear back-up camera, traction and stability control (to prevent a skid or spin) and a year’s worth of OnStar, GM’s satellite-based live-voice assistance center. New safety tech for 2013 includes available blind-spot warnings and rear cross-traffic alerts. Moving up the trim ladder adds perforated-leather seats (heated in front) with memory, 19or 20-inch wheels and fancier trim. A wide assortment of features can be ladled on such as DVD navigation, skylight-style sunroof, a new 10-speaker touch-screen audio package and a DVD entertainment system. Heated and cooled driver and front passenger seats can be had as a stand-alone option.

POWERTRAIN: A 3.6-liter V6, found on most Chrysler-brand vehicles, makes 290 horsepower, while a 360-horsepower 5.7-liter “Hemi” V8 is the obvious choice when towing and heavy hauling are called for.

DRIVETRAIN: Dodge’s 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 delivers a bit more punch - exactly eight horsepower more - with impressive fuel efficiency, assisted by an optional eight-speed automatic transmission; 5.7-liter “Hemi” V8 is unchanged; AWD available on all but the potent SRT8 brings a 470-horse 6.4-liter V8 to play.

from and an on-the-road starting price of $21,000, Dodge makes a strong case for top minivan honors.


The minivan category’s high-selling glory days are well behind it, but demand for these rigs as a logical choice for families and as grandkid haulers for empty nesters remains strong. That’s especially true for Chrysler-built Town & Country and Grand Caravan units as well as key competitors Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna. However if price is the object, combined with plenty of space and decent performance, the Grand Caravan has to be considered a top pick. Since its 2011 model-year updating, the GC now drives more securely and frugally with a revised suspension topped with low-rolling-resistance tires to help prop up fuel economy. At the same time, the interior was upgraded with new gauges and soft-touch dashboard and doorpanel surfaces replacing hard plastic. The 3.6-liter “Pentastar” V6 that was introduced at the same time produces 283 horsepower and, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, easily runs with the minivan herd for fuel consumption. Inside, you’ll find the usual dozen or so cupholders plus a variety of small-item bins and pockets (including dual glove boxes) that showcase the vehicle’s utility. The standard third-row split-folding bench seat can be power folded (as an option) to create a flat load floor. The Stow ‘n’ Go feature comes with a one-touchdown feature and provides out-of-sight storage bins when the second-row seats are left in their upright positions. The price-leading American Value Package (AVP), heads the list of trim levels that also includes SE, SXT, Crew and the sporty R/T. The AVP rings in at $21,000 and includes most of the basic features and safety systems you’d expect. At the top end, the $31,000 R/T comes with a tighter suspension. To get the extra-cost high-definition Blu-Ray video system you need to opt for the R/T or the Crew trim levels.

extended-length version of the Jeep Grand Cherokee with room for seven passengers across three rows of seats.

The Durango abandoned its old-school body-on-frame construction used on earlier versions, but that hasn’t discouraged buyers from selecting it for various work and recreational tasks. Plus its macho exterior leaves the impression that it dines on Ford Explorers or Chevrolet Traverses anytime it wants. The big “D” has been designed off the Jeep Grand Cherokee’s unitized (frameless) platform. Also highly regarded is its 290-horsepower V6 - standard on the SXT and Crew models - as well as the optional 360-horsepower V8 installed in the R/T and range-topping Citadel models. The “Hemi” features a variable-displacement system that reduces fuel consumption by shutting down half of the engine’s eight cylinders under light-load conditions. The V6 connects to a five-speed automatic transmission, while the V8 uses a six-speed automatic with manual shift controls. V8 Durangos can tow up to 7,400 pounds (6,200 pounds for the V6) and can also carry up to seven passengers when using all three rows of seats, although second-row twin high-back bucket seats can also be specified. And since the same designers who penned the GC’s interior also created the Durango’s interior, comfort and roominess are also first rate. Along with four-wheel-drive, Durango options include a system that signals you when another vehicle is about to overtake or is traveling in your blind spot(s). Another system alerts you when cross traffic is approaching from behind as you’re backing out of a parking stall. Dodge also brags that the Durango’s big fuel tank allows you to travel up to 500 miles without making a pit stop . . . for fuel, that is. For 2013, the SXT can be ordered with a Rallye Appearance Group that comes with 20-inch polished wheels, black-bezel headlamps and body-colored cladding and sill moldings.

The Dodge Avenger might not be near the top of the sedan leader board, but its tall wagon counterpart Journey scores a hole-in-one as a practical, efficient and affordable carrier. The Journey has just-right sizing going for it, which means its more compact than a Chevrolet Traverse or Ford Explorer, but larger than a Mitsubishi Outlander or Toyota RAV4. These rigs offer standard or optional third-row seating, but all are considerably more expensive than the $20,000 (base price) Journey. In base trim, there’s seating for five people, although there’s an available two-place third-row 50/50 split bench. There are also some other clever interior storage options such as a front passenger seat with a flip-forward hinged cushion that’s ideal for concealing cameras, purses and other valuables. And all models feature two in-floor storage compartments with removable plastic liners behind the front seats that are large enough to hold a dozen beverage cans each, plus ice. And don’t forget the chilled storage bin inside the glove compartment that can keep a couple of cool beverages at the ready. Although influenced by the Dodge Avenger sedan, this roomier derivation has about four more inches between the front and rear wheels and an eight-inch height advantage, but with an overall length that’s just a touch greater. Also shared with the Avenger is a 173-horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder with four-speed automatic in base models. Optional is a 283-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 with a six-speed auto. There are five 2013 trim levels (American Value Package, SE, SXT, Crew and R/T), which means there’s likely a Journey for every taste, need and budget. Base equipment includes air conditioning keyless remote entry, power windows, locks and mirrors and a complete range of safety gear. Up-level models offer leather seating surfaces, roof rack, backup camera, navigation system, 19-inch wheels and a flashlight stored in the cargo area. Four-cylinder models are exclusively front-wheel-drive, but all-wheel-drive is optional on V6 models. The system automatically kicks in to direct power to the rear wheels when needed, including slippery mud and snow conditions as well as when the vehicle is accelerating up to 65 mph.

Once the darling of the NASCAR circuit, Chrysler is pulling the plug on that specific racing program for 2013, ensuring there will be no more Charger and Challenger-branded “stock” cars for fans to root for. Still, the Charger remains an important member of Dodge’s lineup. In keeping with its racing heritage, a new cold-air induction system has been added to the base 3.6-liter V6 that ups the output to 300 horsepower from 292. The V6’s five-speed automatic transmission remains in service on base Chargers (it has been replaced with an eight-speed transmission in the similar Chrysler 300), while all others use an eightspeed automatic that helps the big sedan achieve 19 mpg city and 31 highway (up from 18/27). The V6’s new cold-air intake gives the car eight more horsepower (now an even 300), but you’ll likely never notice the extra grunt. A five-speed automatic transmission remains connected to the 370-horsepower 5.7-liter V8 installed as standard equipment in the Charger R/T. Both engines can now be equipped with all-wheel-drive with its fuel-saving active transfer case with front-axle disconnect. To save fuel, the system unlocks the front wheels from the transfer case when they’re not needed and will automatically and seamlessly reconnect the front wheels when rear-tire slip is detected. The 5.7 also tries to temper the engine’s thirst for fuel by cutting off half the cylinders at idle and during low-load cruising. Meanwhile, the performance-obsessed SRT8 gets the same 6.4-liter Hemi (392 cubic inches) V8 and five-speed automatic found in the Challenger, Chrysler and Jeep SRT models. Pushing out 470 horsepower, the engine turns the Charger into a brash American cruiser. Thankfully, the brakes are larger, the ride height has been lowered and suspension firmed up to ensure the SRT8 turns and stops as well as it accelerates. For additional rumbling noises, you can select the Beats by Dr. Dre audio package. This apparently famous Rap artist himself helped tune the optional 10-speaker sound system to complement the Charger’s interior and the musical tastes of its generally more youthful passengers.

Three steps will improve a home’s curb appeal The third week of March is the best time to fertilize established roses, lawns and small fruits like blueberry, raspberry and strawberry plants. The longer days are waking up these plants and the new foliage tells you these plants want food now! Do not fertilize tender plants like newly-planted roses, hardy fuchsias, summer-blooming bulbs and shrubs like lilies, dahlias and hydrangeas or plants that surprised you and survived the winter like phormiums and sedums. March also is the month to evaluate your front landscape and put together a plan for some curb appeal. You don’t need to be selling your home to invest in a better front view. A welcoming front entry, colorful flowers and a cared-for landscape does more than just raise property values. There is intrinsic satisfaction waiting for any homeowner or apartment dweller that is welcomed home with a bit of beauty.

Three Steps to Curb Appeal Step one: Focus on the front door You don’t need to own your own home to liven up your entry. Even the darkest basement apartment can benefit from a portable

it gives the eye a familiar place to rest when your home is viewed from the curb or street. Repetition is like a melody that appears throughout a song or the repeating patterns that Mother Nature designs when rolling hills, fields of wild flowers or ocean waves repeat to calm and delight the human senses. Don’t Forget the Obvious: Maintenance Matters Improving your home’s curb appeal can be as simple as mowing and edging the lawn, clearing away the clutter and weeding and mulching the beds. Repair the gutters, get rid of the moss on the roof and keep your driveway free of fallen leaves and debris. A well-kept home does more than improve the real estate values in your neighborhood – it welcomes the homeowner as well as the guest, calms the mind and raises the spirit. We humans get spring fever for a reason: feather your nest, clean up your cave and create a buzz about your home hive.

With God’s grace, we can get a fresh start in life As we approach the beginning of spring, I always have a growing sense of anticipation. When the bulbs begin to bust out and the trees begin to bud, I know that great things are coming. Soon we will have rhododendrons and azaleas trumpeting their vibrant colors in all their glory. The daffodils are already telling me to perk up! The longer daylight in the

evening calls us to linger awhile and enjoy a shimmering sunset. What a glorious time of the year this is. But, in some ways, I Ron Oldenkamp am sad to leave winter Calvary Presbyterian behind. For one thing, I wish we had received more snowfall — I sure appreciate how a good blanket of snow can cover over a multitude of problems and even some ugliness in the yard. Waking up

Church Corner

to a fresh snowfall always gives me a sense of innocence and newness — a do-over in a way. Oh, if only my life’s warts and snags could be so nicely smoothed over or covered. However, spring too can bring with it this sense of the old being gone and finished, as we turn to think about new beginnings and new life. Spring has a wonderful way of giving us a fresh start. Springtime is such a time of renewal — a time to clear out the old and begin anew. In many ways, this is what God wants

for each and every one of us. God’s great gift of love in Jesus Christ allows us the beauty of new beginnings. We are not stuck in our past, but in God’s grace we can know a fresh start when we need one, and for me that’s every day! In the Bible, Second Corinthians 5:17-21 teaches us that “if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of

ELFERS FROM 6 a C or a D and that is enough. Hard work is for college, if they do go. American high school is supposed to be a time for fun, not work. Perhaps it is also because Asian students’ parents are paying triple tuition, plus books, plus board and room, plus travel that makes Asian students more conscientious. The poorer Asian students just can’t afford to come to America. Respect for Authority: This closely aligns with attitude and effort. Asian students come out of a Confucian culture where teachers are highly respected and highly paid. High-achieving American students practice the remnants of what has been called the Puritan Work Ethic – success through hard work is a sign of God’s blessing. In that sense there is not much difference between the two groups. I found the easiest American students to teach were almost always Mormon and Catholic because they grow up understanding authority. The problem I often encountered with American D students is that they often misunderstood Thomas Jefferson’s immortal phrase in the Declaration of Independence: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” American students clearly understand and emphasize their rights, but forget that author-

ity still exists in the classroom. Teachers and students may be equal under the law, but there is still authority with the teacher and students must obey. Many unruly students in America’s classrooms miss that part. They’re often more concerned with getting attention from their peers and teachers by acting out rather than by learning. Public School Reform: How might these differences play out to improve American public schools? I worked on a committee I created to solve that question my last few years at Sumner. The major difference between the high-achieving Asians and Americans I have taught is that high-achieving students most often come from families where education is important. Parents are involved in their children’s education and it is a high priority. The Sumner School District worked hard to form bonds and to create a sense of community. Its graduation rates are in the 90th percentile versus 75 percent nationwide. A program was set up to give each incoming high school freshman an older, responsible upperclassman to act as a mentor. Freshmen were also required to take a basic study skills class. These laid the foundation for higher achievement later and higher graduation rates. America has become so individualistic that we have forgotten the need to balance what is important to society. The most impressive public education reforms must come through programs that strengthen the family and teach students to respect and trust authority. Until that is done, improved schools are a distant dream.

money in Seattle and this never hurts. Two of the richest people on the planet live there and it’s home to some of the most profitable, cutting-edge corporations in the world; i.e., Boeing, Microsoft and Amazon, to name a few. Consequently, while many cities are on the brink of economic disaster or are literally dying – for instance, Detroit and Newark – Seattle’s financial base is pretty sound. Construction work and the labor force it commands are plowing ahead.

They’ll soon start boring a new freeway under the viaduct which, of course, will be torn down, thereby opening and connecting the city’s retail and financial centers directly to the waterfront – and what a glorious improvement that will be. Under the guidance of Microsoft and Amazon and Paul Allen, the South Lake Union area is going through a major renaissance, tripling the region’s population and throwing up highrise office buildings and condos at an astounding rate. And how about those new, upscale towers that are sprout-

CHURCH FROM 27 reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: be reconciled to God. God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in

ing all over Belltown? The post-punk, grunge mutants are being forced off their “home turf.” The city’s unemployment rate is relatively low. Housing construction is picking up and home prices are rising as are real-estate prices in general. The future of Seattle looks bright. So, if you’re one of those outta step fellows or gals who can’t seem to find yourself on the farms or in the suburbs, give city life a whirl. And try Seattle. It isn’t in the same league as San Francisco and New York, but it’s a good place to start.

him we might become the righteousness of God.” I know that I need do-overs on a regular basis and maybe you find that you do too. How wonderful it is to live with that possibility because of Jesus Christ. No matter what our past has been, no matter how hard or bad or ugly, the lord can bring us a new beginning — a springtime fresh start — whenever we need it. All we have to do is ask. Thank God for new beginnings and new life.

dents into the workforce and living-wage jobs as quickly as possible. Our local systems are no exception. Two area districts, Kent and Tahoma, have visions of partnering with local community colleges and tech schools. Tahoma hopes to build a new high school around the idea of having different vocational tracks. Kentlake High has plans to start a prenursing certification program in the fall. I believe these programs will have good things to offer students and our communities at large. However, I also think that caution is in order lest we end up with the exact same problem, just in reverse. Ultimately it comes down to this: students need to know the reality that awaits them when they choose a path. Want to attend a university? That’s great. A university education often means that a student will acquire educational debt to pay for it. What kind of salary can they expect and how long should they plan to be paying off those loans? Want to be a psychologist or social worker? You’ll need a master’s. What are the long term outlooks for those fields? On the other hand, college isn’t for everyone and not every career requires a four-year degree. Technical schools and community colleges can be great options as well. Yes, they will prepare you for a job in a short amount of time, but students need to know that often those programs prepare them for a single job. To advance often requires additional education or certification. Students need to understand these things when they are making decisions about the future. If they understand those realities and are prepared for them, then the school systems are doing what they are intended to do. After that, it’s up to each student whether they sink or swim.

Superintendent’s Message Dear Families, I was given a wonderful gift for Christmas from a fellow Rotarian and Enumclaw business owner….a book! I love receiving books as gifts. The note that I received with the book encouraged me to read through the lens of a leader. The book is titled “The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business” by Charles Duhigg. One impactful story in the book is about the product Febreze. Frebreze was first marketed as a way to get rid of odors. One might use it in their car after they have given their wet dog a ride home from the lake. The company felt it was an amazing product and people who used it loved it. In surveys, they even found that many homeowners would say, “Yes, I think I have a bottle of that. It is in the back of my cleaning cupboard.” After further review, they found some individuals who had a different habit for using the product. They use it as a bit of celebration, after they clean their car or a room in their home. Instead of using it to cover up smells, they use it as “an exclamation point” at the end of their cleaning in keeping their car or home fresh smelling. As a result of marketing these “change of habits” of the consumer, sales for Frebreze changed significantly for the better. I find myself looking at what I do during my daily routines differently as a result of reading this book. For me, an example of this occurred at the beginning of each day. I would wake up, shower, dress, make a cup of coffee, clean the kitchen counters/ empty the dishwasher, take the dog for a walk and then would rush out of the house with something in my hand to eat in the car for breakfast. I knew exactly what time I needed to get out of bed to make all of this happen. I was forgetting to take a bit of time to make sure I had good breakfast habits. I would then usually end up eating some junk food around 10:00 AM. As a result of reading the book, I found I needed to change my “cue” or trigger. I really didn’t want to eat something “junky” around 10:00. There were a couple of changes I made. At the core of all of this was that I wanted to eat an easy and healthy breakfast, but I didn’t do a very good job of shopping for breakfast supplies at the store each week. I do most of the shopping in our home….so I can’t blame Britt! It has been amazing, but this simple change of planning for daily breakfast when I do the weekly shopping has pushed me into changing my breakfast habit… going on six weeks! I wonder what school to home habits we all might consider changing. Here are a few questions to consider: 1. Is there a regular time to discuss schoolwork with your child/children? 2. Is there a regular time you read, play a math game or board games with your child/children? 3. Is your child having difficulty getting their homework completed? 4. Is there a time you talk about what is happening in our city, state, nation and world as a family? If no is the answer, is there a way to examine why the answer is no? I’m sure there are numerous factors that would make responses vary for all of us. The book would say to look into these factors and work toward making alterations to create the habits you want. It was a fascinating book to read personally as well as for our school system!

EMS Clean Water WE Day We just wanted to let you know that on Tuesday, March 5th, from 12:50-1:40 pm the EMS leadership class ran an assembly to make everyone aware of clean water issues in Africa. The purpose is to kick-off a "change drive" where students will be motivated to raise money towards bringing a well to an African village. We have been working hard in making the assembly educational, engaging and inspiring. We began by explaining that we realize we don't always appreciate how we use water. The kids made a video showing silly ways we waste water - including a "Harlem Shake" version of water-wasting! Students challenge the student body to take a good look at how they use water and to think about how they could cut back. This transitions into an activity - a simulation of going a long ways away to get water and then bringing it back into the village. In teams, students from the audience ran down with a 5-gallon empty Gatorade jug on their heads. When they got down there, two people from their team ran back a 5-gallon container filled all the way with water. Students interviewed those who participated to see what it was like to carry the water so far with it being heavy. We made the point that women have to go a long ways to get water for their families - it is tiring work, and when they are doing that, they do not have free-time or time to get an education (a key to breaking out of poverty). Then, a representative from WE Day gave a talk about clean water issues. She explained how water is dirty and unsafe for drinking, and she explained the efforts of Free the Children all around the world. Students explained what the "change drive" will look like at our school. We raised money towards sending a well to an African village - providing clean water that is right there in the village so the women may now have the time to get an education. To give the student body an additional motivation to participate, we have gathered pictures from the internet that shows kids drinking dirty water and also happy kids drinking clean water in their villages due to hand pumps and wells. The Carrie Underwood song "Change" - a very appropriate song, I think, for the topic - will be playing during the slideshow. Then, we concluded our assembly. Students were nervous with it being their first assembly they have ever run but we were excited to share what we have learned, and we think we will be able to motivate everyone to care a little bit more about their world, which is the purpose of WE Day.
