North Bend’s Paul Green shares love of music with Valley at new Blues Walk

“This is the project that got a bunch of us started working out here,” explained Boyar, a recreation enthusiast who’s basically adopted the Snoqualmie corridor over the past 20 years. “It got a bunch of us excited, and we went from there.” The project was a one-of-a-kind bridge, guarded day and night by volunteers during construction, and installed with the help of a two-rotor helicopter that lowered it, whole, into place. Interesting origins, yes, but the most important thing about the bridge, Boyar said, was the access it created.

A man with a tenor sax is waiting to jam. A couple just pulled up chairs by the stage, and there’s two guys in the back playing a board game. It’s a real mellow atmosphere, with Paul Green croonPaul Green ing “Lost Mind”, just about to let his harmonica wail through The Black Dog cafe. Green, North Bend’s resident blues legend, takes the stage every week here. Music, the blues in particular, has been his life, ever since he picked up a harmonica at age 20. Blues music is still vibrant, and Green does his part to keep it that way. He’ll be one of a dozen performers to rouse North Bend’s downtown Saturday, April 20, at the inaugural North Bend Blues Walk.

Hiking the airlifted footbridge over the Middle Fork of the Snoqualmie River, Mark Boyar, one of the volunteers who helped build it, says the crossing was a key development in opening this wilderness to hikers, bikers and kayakers. Below, the fork makes for pleasant camping, but with possible designation as a wild and scenic river, it may come under increased protection in the future.

Gateway to the wild ‘It’s going to be busy’: Big changes come to North Bend’s Middle Fork wilderness By Carol Ladwig Staff Reporter

They call it the Gateway Trail. It’s a shortish trek, partly through old-growth forest, partly along the trout-rich Middle Fork of the Snoqualmie River, with a spectacular arching footbridge at its start. Hundreds of thousands of visitors come to the Middle Fork area each year for hiking, camping, kayaking, and cycling, and many will discover this spot. But, at 12 miles up a winding gravel road, is the Middle Fork Trail trailhead really a gateway? In more ways than one, says Mark Boyar, now a Mountains to Sound Greenway board member, and one of the volunteers in the loosely organized Middle Fork Coalition who helped the U.S. Forest Service build that footbridge 12 years ago.

Snoqualmie superintendent looks at new Richland job Snoqualmie Valley Schools superintendent Joel Aune is one of three finalists for the position of Superintendent of the Richland School District. The Richland district announced in a press release Wednesday, April 10, that Aune, Dr. Rick Schulte, superintendent of the Oak Harbor School District, and Dr. John Steach, superintendent of the Canby School District in Oregon, were finalists in the superintendent search, and would be interviewed by school board members and the public April 16 to 18. Aune has been with the Snoqualmie Valley School District since 2005, and recently served as president of the Washington Association of School Administrators (WASA) for the 2011-12 school year. Earlier this year, he was one of six finalists for the superintendent position of the Renton School District, but did not make the final round. Aune declined to comment on his application to the Renton School District, saying that in fairness to both school districts, it was too soon to comment. He could not be reached for comment on the Richland application, as he was out of the district last week. Following the interviews next week, school board members plan to visit each of the finalists’ current school districts. A decision on the new superintendent is expected by the end of April. Richland began its search for a new superintendent in January, when the district fired former Superintendent Jim Busey, according to a report in the Tri-City Herald. Busey is reportedly suing the district and school board members for $1 million in damages for discrimination and improper firing.

“In the 80s and 90s, things had deteriorated so much, there was almost no formal trail system from this part of the Valley down,” he said, approaching the trailhead as he gave a tour of Greenway projects. “So we wanted to get more people up here for recreation purposes and the barrier was not having a bridge.” Back then, Boyar explained, the Middle Fork, with more than 10,000 acres of convenient access and abandoned logging roads, was known to be the haunt of target shooters, garbage-dumpers and drugusers. It was U.S. Forest Service land, with state- and countyowned pieces, too, and most was reserved for outdoor recreation, but people didn’t feel safe here, so they didn’t come out here. Over the last 10 to 20 years, though, everything changed. The U.S. Forest Service closed off many of the old logging roads, and banned shooting in the area. In 1995, the Mountains to Sound Greenway began a planning effort to address some of the major restoration needs, from building trails on decommissioned roads, to repairing river banks damaged by decades of users blazing their own trails down to the water, and then blocking vehicle access to some of the most sensitive areas. The U.S. Forest Service created a campground near Taylor River. Various agencies hired Friends of the Trail to clean up illegal dumpsites, and provide ongoing maintenance. Slowly, and then more quickly, recreational tourists started coming back to the Middle Fork For Boyar, it was a mixed blessing—more tourists meant more interest in the area, more revenue for surrounding communities, but more chances for misuse of the resources such as “bootleg” trails and campsites. It was also a warmup for what he foresees in the next few years for the Middle Fork. Right now, the Western Federal Lands Highway Division is planning a major road reconstruction and paving project for 10 miles of the

Middle Fork Road, and the U.S. Congress is considering a bill that would add 22,000 acres to the Alpine Lakes Wilderness that covers part of the Middle Fork area. The bill, S. 112: Alpine Lakes Wilderness Additions and Pratt and Middle Fork Snoqualmie Rivers Protection Act, would also designate the Middle Fork as a wild and scenic river, qualifying it for additional protection and federal management.

Solving problems

Locally, the North Bend City Council just authorized the public works department to apply for a $6 million federal grant, with a $614,000 match (13.5 percent) from the city’s Transportation Benefit District funds, to prepare the city’s own gateway, 468th Avenue Southeast, for the additional traffic and construction vehicles coming soon to the Middle Fork Road. The project will include widening the roads, adding sidewalks, and constructing an oversized truck turnaround, casually referred to as a roundabout, at the intersection of 468th Southeast and Southeast 140th Street/ Southeast Middle Fork Road. “It solves an awful lot of problems out in that area,” said North Bend Public Works Director Frank Page of the project, which he hopes could start as soon as next spring. Improving the overall access to the area, while simultaneously expanding the lands that will be accessible to hikers, et. al., won’t mean a rush of new users to the area, Boyar says, because they’re already here. “I don’t think it’s going to be a flood, but I’d say the faucet will be three-quarters open,” Boyar said. “It’s going to be busy!” And time is running out for advocates of the Middle Fork to plan and produce the amenities —more signs, day-use areas, campgrounds, outhouses, pullouts and trails, all in the right non-sensitive areas—that will accommodate and maybe even direct all those visitors. “It’s not a choice of (them) coming or not coming, because they’re here and they’re coming

The right way “We can either do this road project right, so that we can get in the way of that process of degradation, so we can prepare the valley in the right way and focus the use,” Boyar said, or let it become like some of the other river basins he’s heard horror stories from. “So this is the opportunity to fix it before the problem happens. It’s the Yosemite taking care of the crowds before the crowds come.” While at the bridge, a man passed Boyar, heading out on the trail with a small chainsaw in hand, and a hatchet strapped to his daypack. He could have been one of the many volunteers with Mountains to Sound, helping to keep a trail clear after getting a report of a problem somewhere—they have a similar program for weeds that Boyar is very excited about. Or, he could have been a bootlegger, about to cut his own trail into the shared treasure of the Middle Fork. With all this access, you just can’t tell.

Blues FROM 1 Paul’s career “I was always attracted, from a young age, to blues and jazz,” says Green. Growing up in New Jersey, Green came from a musical, artistic family—his mother was a dancer in the New York Metropolitan Opera, and his father was a ceramicist. Elizabeth, N.J., was a white, upper-class community, but nearby were towns with large African-American populations. Green remembers hearing R&B and some blues, from an early age. He asked his mom for his first John Lee Hooker album at age 12, started listening religiously to the local college’s late Sunday blues radio show, and keyed in on a broad range of recording artists. Green had a late start to his career. Listening to a Paul Butterfield album, he decided to try harmonica. After a year, he was pretty good. Around 1970, he got the chance to sit in with the band at an Ashbury Park club called the Cat’s Meow. Terrified at first, he played his heart out, and the people liked it. He was invited back the next week, and his career began. Performing as a member of house bands at blues spots, and with his own bands, Green’s career has taken him from New Jersey to Oakland, Calif., and the Bay Area. In 1989, he moved to Chicago, performing in Buddy Guy’s ‘Legends’ club, among others, sharing the stage with a number of greats. He moved to the Seattle area in 1991, and has gotten a lot of notice in the Northwest for his harmonica and vocal work. With his band Straight Shot, a blues, funk and R&B group, Green is a regular at events like the North Bend Block Party. Green is technically retired, but still plays. He does it for the love.

Blues Walk performer Paul Green, with Chris Clark, left, and guest Carolyn Graye, on piano, performs at the Black Dog. approached the owners of The Black Dog in Snoqualmie with an idea. With Boxley’s popularizing jazz and blues up the road, “I thought it would be nice to have something similar in Snoqualmie,” he said. The owners agreed, and so Green joined forces with Snoqualmie’s Chris Clark, an experienced bass player and regular guest player and youth mentor at Boxley’s, for weekly blues sessions.

Blues walk This weekend’s Blues Walk is important, says Green, because of the role it plays in keeping the blues growing and vibrant. “It’s going to be great,” Green says of the upcoming walk. Last fall’s Jazz Walk was a big success. “The purpose is to not only provide music for the community, but also to support the Boxley’s Music Fund, which does education for young musicians, as well as paying the musicians who play at Boxley’s and other functions,” he explains. Boxley’s Music Fund founder Danny Kolke says the commitment of musicians like Green pushes others to share their best. “It’s what excellence always

does,” he told the Record. “It inspires us to be more than we are. And it’s part of the magic of the blues.” Here in the Northwest, the blues music scene is quite good, says Green. But given the state of the economy, it’s not what it used to be. Some places that used to feature live music have closed down. “But there’s still places to play,” he says. “Blues, and any form of music, goes through ups and downs. But there’ll always be blues and jazz in this country.”

Downtown sound The North Bend Blues Walk is 6 p.m. Saturday, April 20. Performers include Paul Green, Little Bill and the Blue Notes, the T-Town Aces, Blues Redemption, the Brian Lee Trio, and others. Thirteen venues in the downtown area take part. Tickets are $18 for adults and $8 for children under age 15, in advance, $20 and $10 on the day of the event. Get tickets and see a schedule at northbendblueswalk. com or visit northbendblueswalk.

Mark Boyar, a Mountains to Sound member and advocate of the Middle Fork planning effort, gave a tour of restoration projects, including repairing damage caused by bootleg campsites like this one.

in droves. It’s whether we want this place to be the same damn mess that we had 20 years ago,” Boyar said. The Greenway, with funding from a Waste Management grant, has begun a planning process with the various landmanagement agencies in the Middle Fork to design what the next phase of the Middle Fork area, the accessible Middle Fork, will look like. “Then, those people, who are coming anyway, will have a great time and they won’t inadvertently cause the disruption that you’re seeing right now,” says Boyar, stopped at a “bootleg” campsite, maybe 30 feet from the road. Campers cut their own trail to a clearing on the riverside, then apparently took a chainsaw and can of spray paint to a live tree, cutting out a four-foot section of bark and wood, probably for their fire.

When it comes to writing, it’s use it—or lose it What’s at stake when schools ditch cursive?


ere’s a simple exercise. Take out a pen, and a sheet of paper, and write out something—your name, your favorite band, the name of the closest restaurant—in cursive. How’d you do? I’ll bet it wasn’t easy. I tried to write the word “abstract” in cursive script the other day. I’d just met Joe Monihan, this week’s letter writer, and I wanted to see whether I still had the muscle memory from ages ago, when I still wrote in cursive. It had been a long time. The “r” was a wave, neither “t” matched, and the less said about “b” the better. Mr. Monihan first stopped by to share his concerns over this two Seth Truscott weeks ago. He’d read about the Valley Record decline of cursive instruction in a Editor national story, and had shared his concerns with the Snoqualmie Valley School Board. In an age when everybody is writing less and typing more, Joe’s argument is that schools should stress the teaching of cursive writing, the flowing script that developed long, long ago for use with the pen. As I listened to Joe make his case, I came to see his point. All around us, technology seems on the march. It’s given us so much, but it’s also taken. I’m not arguing that we should start swapping cars for carriages, or ban the e-book and chop down more trees. What I do sense is that the pace of change seems to be speeding up. And the very physical act of literacy is at stake as we rely more and more, at a younger age, on technological crutches. Joe’s fighting a heavy current here. Schools embrace technology like handheld computers because it works: New tech draws in young minds in ways that old techniques sometimes do not. We had a mixed reaction to cursive in our Question of the Week poll last week. In case you missed it, one teen said we don’t need it anymore. One boy said cursive is good for formal things; another student admitted that it should be used, but isn’t because students aren’t always good at it. And one girl, Danielle Burns (a great Wildcat golfer, by the way), hit the nail on the head when she replied that cursive is more personal, painstaking. She loves getting hand-written letters. I still remember learning cursive in third grade. There was pride in the knowledge that us youngsters were mastering arcane skills of the adult world, a different kind of literacy, more ornate, more artistic. We didn’t spend long on it; I remember struggling to make the curlicues of capital Z. To this day, I can’t do it. And almost all the other letters have faded. Perhaps the skill is still there, but it’s latent, and only practice and real effort will bring it back. With businesses, media and school districts being asked to communicate in new ways with citizens, there’s always that pressure to jump to the next new device or method. Now, I love Facebook, but it’s so easy to be insulated in your own personal bubble of information and opinion. Tech is a tool, but it’s no replacer of the real, whether that be discussion, variety of sources, or the simple act of reading and writing in a real, physical book. And besides, what happens to all that information or technique if the power goes out? There’s only so much that can really be done in education about cursive. But broadly speaking, there are probably many ways educators and families can embrace literacy and writing, ensuring that technology like smart-phones and spell check remain tools, not crutches, and that script doesn’t wind up taught only in art class. Pick up a pen and write, yourself. Teach the kids to write. Joe puts it a lot simpler than I do: Use it or lose it.

“Sure, I don’t see that it causes any problems. I think everybody should smoke pot. It would make the world a happier place.” Rick Goodman North Bend

“I’m very confused about it. When you hear that it’s OK here, but the federal government says no… there’s a lot of things that have to be worked out.” Nola Amsler Snoqualmie

• Mount Si Fish & Game Club will sponsor the 46th annual Kids Fishing Derby. This is a once-a-year opportunity for young anglers, so have your folks get you down to Kimball and Coal creeks at sunrise. • Carnation is the only city in the county, possibly the state, that runs its own landfill. Because of new state laws adopted in 1985, it may be unfeasible for Carnation to keep it open. It’ll need monitoring stations, a treatment system for leaks, and a liner.

“I would not want it here. I don’t think it should be legalized. It’s a drug. I understand they use it for cancer patients, but I feel it’s a bandaid, more than anything.” Jodi Jeffries Snoqualmie

“Marijuana has its place. If it helps people and it’s regulated, I don’t think there’s a problem.” Denitia Gray Snoqualmie

• Two 16-year-old Snoqualmie boys are being held in the King County Youth Center, awaiting trial in juvenile court. The boys admitted they broke a switch lock on the Northern Pacific tracks and pushed a car from a spur track onto the main line.

Ditch the crutches, emphasize cursive skills Every so often, the ranking of a significant number of the world’s industrialized countries’ students achievement test scores is published. I cannot remember any such ranking for our country that was not dismal, and should be embarrassing for all Americans. Education is not a static process and changes are not always an improvement. I recall that in the ‘60s, Latin was removed from our high school curriculum. In the ‘70s, the use of phonics in teaching reading was challenged and in some instances, replaced. Calculators were, after much debate, allowed in sixth grade math. “New math” became a popular title for an unpopular program that mystified, and still mystifies, some parents. For many years, I have given little attention to the Snoqualmie Valley School District’s education program, only to its financial issues. Thus it came as a complete surprise when I read in a national newspaper of the widespread abandonment throughout this country of the use of cursive for communicating our English language in favor of electronic methods. This is certainly not the respect and pride we should give to our primary language, probably the most recognized language in the world. I inquired at the Feb. 28 board meeting about our district’s program concerning cur-

sive. I was informed that cursive is taught in the third grade, but not “emphasized” thereafter, also substituting electronics. The information that I’ve learned since then seems to indicate that this program has resulted in little cursive ability by the sixth grade and even less by graduation. In this application, electronics is an unacceptable crutch. I feel that any graduate’s lack of ability to write our English language in cursive is an unacceptable failure of our district’s education program. How this condition developed is not the question for now. Rather, what should we do about it? I propose that if the current program is board policy, all graduates be competent to perform cursive communication. If board policy is not involved, develop one that establishes the requirement of competency in cursive for graduation, thus giving it the important role it deserves. Joe Monahan Fall City

Lack of attention for criminals in gun debate The editorial page cartoon, (‘Nuclear kitchen’, March 27 Valley Record) with an attitude, seems to be poking a thumb in the eye of whomever manages, or mismanages, the Hanford nuclear waste mess. Nowhere in the piece do I see an image of Nevada Senator Harry Reid, who bears a good deal of the blame for effectively blocking utilization of the Yucca Flat waste repository in his state. We taxpayers shelled out a goodly sum to build that thing and many of Reid’s constituents took home those tax dollars while building it and there it sits, unused. Then, gunowner Mr. Seaton (“What if bad

Snoqualmie Valley Record • April 17, 2013 • 5

guys wear white hats,” Letters, March 27) seems to be distancing himself from any possible association with the NRA’s Wayne LaPierre. I guess that’s understandable. I’ve been a life member for the past 40-plus years and I can see LaPierre’s fervor as little different than, say, the ACLU defending with equal fervor the “right” of the KKK or the American Nazi Party, for a couple of examples, to march in a Fourth of July parade, the thought of which nauseates me. Background checks are carried out hundreds of times daily. What LaPierre (and I join him) is concerned about is the focus on the law-abiding and the apparent lack of attention being paid to the criminal element in our society. There seems to be no follow-up on those who fail a background check. Why not? The Seattle Times reported recently that one of the killers of the Tuba-Man ran afoul of the law recently after being reported prowling cars. The SPD stopped him and found a stolen AR-15 in the trunk of his car. He and two friends were on their way to “a house that sells guns”, reportedly to steal some guns—no background check to steal the “assault rifle”, undoubtedly no licensed dealer at the “house that sells guns”, and, no background checks needed for the planned stolen guns. It was recently reported that three cities

with the most outspoken mayors against guns, L.A., Chicago and New York, were in districts with the least number (of 90 districts) of prosecuted federal gun crimes. What’s wrong with that picture?

More photos, please… And please clean up after your horses Your yearly photo contest is great. I’m curious as to how many entries you receive. Would it be possible to print the nonwinners photos, a few each week, for us all to enjoy? Second, recently a passing horse made a large deposit in front of our house. Ever wonder why dog owners are expected to remove their dog’s deposits but horse owners are not? Anyway, I want to relate what a neighbor of ours did—as he was passing our house, he noticed the mess, went back home, got a box and shovel and returned to clean it up. How great is that? Thanks again, Lyle—you are a treasure! Joy Kerlee Fall City

Student art on display


ount Si High School is hosting a show of student-created art Thursday, April 18, and if the event name—Festival of the Arts—doesn’t tell you it’s more than just an art show, the organizers will. The Festival of the Arts, says Fall City Arts vice-president Inga Rouches, who ran the event in 2010 and 2011 and is helping with it this year, offers students a rare opportunity to “shine.” “It’s not like (an athlete), where you can go out and watch them play every week,” Rouches explained. “An artist doesn’t have that exposure very often.” That exposure, though, is necessary. “In high school, the kids get a little more self-critical… there’s so much comparison with everyone… it’s not as easy for them to show their art,” Rouches explained. “So to create a venue for them to

show their art is incredible, and important.” The venue for the festival is Mount Si High School’s Wildcat Court and the school library, both of which will be transformed on April 17. The walls of the Wildcat Court will be covered with “at least 200 photographs” from Jim Gibowski’s students down one side, and with prints, paintings, ceramics, sculptures and other visual arts down the other side. Nearly 100 bonsai plants from the horticulture class will be set up in the library. Student-made films will play on the big screen in the Wildcat Court during the public reception, 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, and servers will circulate with student-made edible art hors d’oeuvres, followed by a cake-decorating and tasting event.

arts FROM 7 Most of the students in the arts classes, culinary arts, metal and wood shops will have at least one piece on display, so “it should be a substantial show,” Rouches stella Diegel said. All of the exhibits will be student artist installed for display the night before the show, so students going to class the next day will be the first to see them. Rouches said this is her favorite part of the show. “It makes (the Wildcat Court) just come alive with all the art in there, and I love seeing students go in there, and go ‘whoa!’” she said.

“I think that really brings out some cool stuff in kids, to have that stimulation from art, and art that their peers did.” A panel of judges, all local professional artists, will review the works and select the top-three placers in each category. Festival chairperson Carol Reitz recruited all of the judges, and Rouches said “She’s doing a great job. She is super-organized, and it’s very fun to have someone like her be involved.” With grants from Fall City Arts and the Mount Si PTSA, the Festival this year also has enough money to award prizes to the top artists of the show. The winning artists will be recognized during the public showing Thursday night, which is also when participants will have a chance to sample the students cakes.

Breaking the cycle Pinwheels raise awareness of child abuse Pinwheels take on a new meaning this month. April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month, a time to raise awareness of child maltreatment and how to prevent it in our community. The Washington state Department of Early Learning uses pinwheels to represent its campaign urging people to learn more about prevention and supporting children and their families. “The health and well-being of our children is all of our concern,” Dr. Ronald Spiegel, pediatrician at Snoqualmie Ridge Medical Clinic, said. “Medical providers rely on community members to report any treatment of a child they see that is concerning or inappropriate.” Child maltreatment is any type of abuse or neglect of a child, under the age of 18, that

There are four common types of abuse: physical, sexual, emotional and neglect or abandonment. Maltreatment causes stress in children that can affect school, family life, physical and mental health. “The goal is to stop child maltreatment before it starts,” Spiegel said. “The best way to prevent it is to seek help if you’re feeling

overwhelmed by circumstances in your life, including financial worries, marital problems and substance abuse. Counseling and community programs can help prevent things from escalating to the level of maltreatment.” Local programs to prevent child abuse and neglect also improve parent-child relationships and provide parents with

social support. A few local support organizations include LifeWire, Encompass and Friends of Youth. “We live in a great area with lots of family activities, good schools and excellent support systems to help in stressful times,” Spiegel said. “Our Snoqualmie Ridge Medical Clinic providers are available through our call service 24 hours a day to help steer people towards the support they may need.” Each type of child abuse comes with its own unique symptoms. It’s up to adults who are in a position to notice recurring symptoms of abuse, to act before the situation escalates. If you suspect a child may be mistreated, call your medical provider, Child Protective Services or the police. Snoqualmie Ridge Medical Clinic is located at 35020 S.E. Kinsey St., Snoqualmie.

Valley Christian Assembly Church, partnering with Food for the Hungry, has made a commitment to support this village by sponsoring many children and helping with annual community projects for a 10-year period. Last year, a mission group from the Valley planted fruit trees in their village, combating malnutrition, a serious problem, and helping with trade. Vacation Bible School is also provided for the local children. Food for the Hungry focuses on the needs of the community and asked church members this year to help install new cooking stoves. The villagers keep warm and cook in open fires in the middle of their homes. With a fire pit in the middle of the home without proper ventilation, the villagers inhale smoke, causing serious respiratory problems. Therefore, a trip is planned to return in August this year to construct and install these new stoves, which will, in the long run, save lives. The church is located at 32725 SE 42nd Street, Fall City; call the church at (425) 222-5284. Tickets are $8 per person. Children under 3 are free. The church is seeking businesses to sponsor or donate goods for the fiesta. To learn more, e-mail to Samantha at

Simple steps to prevent pain

How to keep your child from suffering a concussion By Nicole Demetrescu Contributing writer

The number itself is a shock to the system: Every year, emergency rooms nationwide treat sports- and recreation-related brain injuries in nearly 175,000 children. The most common activities leading to these visits are cycling, football, playground activities (especially for children under 9), basketball and soccer. But such injuries can occur in any activity. C on c u s s i on s can produce lifelong challenges with memory, emo- Nicole demetrescu tion, movement and behavior. Children and teens take longer than adults to recover from concussions. We must take them seriously. Here’s how to prevent concussions when your child is at play: • Make sure your child wears a helmet when cycling or playing sports such as football or hockey. • Have an appropriate professional check the helmet’s fit. • Talk with your child’s coach about policies on concussions and returning to play. • Know that concussions can occur with direct contact with the ground, another player or an object. Even a forceful sit-down can cause a concussion.

Signs of a concussion Has your child had a bump? Watch for these signs in the hours and days afterward: • Loss of consciousness, even momentary • Dazed or stunned appearance • Confusion • Clumsiness • Mood or behavior changes • Memory loss • Headache • Nausea or vomiting • Blurry vision • Light or noise sensitivity • Feeling “not quite right” If you see even one of these, keep your child out of play and off a bike until a medical evaluation. • Free training and facts on concussions are available from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control at http:// concussion/sports/index.html. • Nicole Demetrescu is a physical therapist at Encompass.

We all spend a fair amount of our life in front of a computer and there are some simple steps to avoid pain and injury. Here are some tips to keep your spine in a neutral position so that your muscles are aligned in their most efficient way. 1. The top of the monitor should be at eye level and at arm’s length away 2. Keep head upright and chin level with shoulders relaxed 3. The chair should have a firm lumbar support that rests in the small of your back 4. Arms should rest comfortably at your side 5. Your elbows should be bent at an approximate 90-degree angle with armrest directly under elbow/forearm 6. The keyboard should be slightly below elbow height 7. Keep wrists straight and mouse next to keyboard at same height level 8. Keep your hips bent at slightly less than a 90-degree angle 9. Adjust the seat height so that knees are slightly below hips 10. Be sure feet are resting on the floor or use an angled foot rest/stool if desk height cannot be adjusted Other things to consider in order to avoid injuries typically related to computer workstations: • Sitting in any one position for too long can lead to neck, back or wrist pain. Take 5-10 minute standing or walking breaks every two hours. • Use arm, hand and finger stretches to relieve tension built up from repetitive motions If you continue to have trouble, then it is time to seek further medical help. Your local physical therapist at Edge PT & Rehab is there to help you and can be reached at (425) 292-0223.

Raise a Cavity-free Child! What’s in your medicine cabinet? Talk with teens, safeguard prescriptions to prevent abuse

What’s in your medicine cabinet at home? Each generation of teens looks for new ways to get high. Recent trends indicate that they are increasingly turning to prescription or overthe-counter (OTC) medicines. Teens report getting many of these medicines from home medicine cabinets and mistakenly believe that abusing them is “safer” than other drugs. According to surveys from the National Institute on Drug Abuse, 20 percent of teens say they have taken a prescription drug without having a prescription for it themselves, and 5 percent report abusing OTC cough medicine to get high. Saturday, April 27, is the day the North Bend Police Department along with Washington State DEA will participate in the National Drug Take Back Day. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. you can bring your expired, unwanted, or unused prescription medications to a temporary drop off point located at the southeast corner of North Bend’s park-and-ride, between East McClellan Street and East Park Street for destruction.

Choose a Pediatric Dentist • Just as you’ve chosen a pediatrician for your child, consider the advantages of choosing a pediatric dentist from the very first visit by AGE ONE. • Don’t put your child to bed with a bottle. • Begin cleaning your child’s mouth after feeding even before teeth appear.

To help prevent medicine abuse:

• Make sure your children brush for 2 minutes, twice a day.

• Talk to your teen about prescription and OTC cough medicine abuse. Teens listen, even if they act like they don’t. In fact, teens who learn about the risks of drugs from their parents are 50 percent less likely to use drugs. • Safeguard your medicine cabinets. Take steps to protect your teens by safeguarding all the medicines you have in your home. Know what you have and how much, so you will know if anything is missing. Discard any medicines you no longer need. • Share what you have learned. For parenting education opportunities, treatment and more information, visit www. or

It is our goal to implement the highest standard of care at every patient encounter whether it is a child’s first visit to the dental office, a teenager who is headed off to college or a special-needs adult patient we’ve been seeing for decades.

The professionals Culinary classes at Mount Si get students on right track for restaurant careers

worked at the restaurant for years, he says, and he finds real value in the training he gets at school, too. “This is a great class,” the freshman said, adding that he knows the experience will help him find work in the industry. On the opposite end of the student-interest spectrum, at least at first, was Danielle Clark, a junior who took first place in the ProStart regional competition for commercial baking and advanced to statelevel competition in April. When she started high school, she said, she was thinking of a career in sports medicine. She only took the cooking class because she remembered how much her step-brother enjoyed it, she said. “And once I got there, it kind of felt right,” Clark said. She doesn’t work at the cafe, but in her second-period culinary arts class, she produces many of the baked goods on sale in the cafe, and she has the same focus, “trying to make everything uniform in how it looks and tastes.” Her training has given her confidence, and a new career goal. “One day, I want to open my own bakery,” she said. Clark was one of four Mount Si culinary students to excel in a ProStart regional event in February, but the only one to compete in commercial baking. Her classmates swept the culinary competition’s top three placings, with Brian Harris in first, Blakley taking second, and Kendall Wright in third.
