Details revealed on airplane door that fell from the sky BY STEVE HUNTER shunter@kentreporter.com

The landing gear door that fell last fall in a Kent neighborhood marked at least the 19th time that

similar part has fallen off one of the many Boeing 767 jets around the world over the last 12 years. The main landing gear shock strut door on the cargo jet dropped from the sky at about

6:45 a.m. Sept. 7. The door landed in the street just outside the home of Maureen Rinabarger in the 12800 block of Southeast 231st Way on the East Hill. The approximately 50-pound part, about

the size of a refrigerator door, did not injure anyone or cause any damage. But it definitely raised a lot of questions about the how and why a door suddenly would just drop

off a plane as it headed to Boeing Field. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Boeing and ABX [ more DOOR page 4 ]

‘Reach it out’ Dragon boat crews part the waters

BY MICHELLE CONERLY mconerly@kentreporter.com

In unison, a group of 12 people dig their paddles into the waters of Lake Meridian, grunting and counting with speed and endurance.

Splashing themselves with the cold water as their paddles quickly rise and fall, these dedicated individuals know the hard work is well worth the effort. By the time they count to 15 three times, the drill is over, their chests padded in colorful lifejackets heaving in and out to catch their breath. Not long after they finish do they slide those same paddles back into the glassy water, slowly propelling the slender boat [ more BOAT page 2 ]

A student in the special needs program at KentMeridian High School died April 16 from unknown causes. According to an email sent out by Principal Wade Barringer, 19-year-old Chris McCracken was taken to the hospital on April 15 complaining of back problems. He died the next morning. “Chris was a big talker with a lot to say,” Barringer wrote to staff and students. “He loved talking to people and having people listen to him. Chris grew a lot this year in his ability to communicate with others and advocate for himself. Chris will be missed.” McCracken lived at Integrated Living Services,

an organization in Kent that provides “residential services to people with profound/ severe developmental disabilities.” Ken Abercrombie, director of the facility, did not comment on the death of McCracken due to the center’s privacy policy. McCracken’s family, who lives in Renton, did not feel comfortable at this time to speak about the passing of their son. The special needs programs at Kent-Meridian serve the intellectually disabled student population. In McCracken’s case, he was accepted into The Outreach Program (TOP) at K-M that teaches social skills and functionality in the workplace. He would have [ more STUDENT page 2 ]

every day when his graduation was coming.” McCracken came to K-M in October. According to Sandra Soto, another paraeducator who worked one-on-one with McCracken, it was not his love for magazines or his growing working and non-working pen collection that people will remember about McCracken, but rather his natural hunger for knowledge and heart of gold. “He liked to ask a lot of questions,” Soto said. “He couldn’t read (so) his way

of getting information was asking questions. (And) when he did ask questions, he retained that knowledge. He was just someone who was a pleasure to be around. It was like one of my children died.” Harrison, who also developed a strong bond with McCracken, will never forget the moments where his care for others made a substantial impact in her life. “I lost my husband to a stroke,” Harrison said through tears. “I would

be back working with (McCracken) and something would come up that would remind me (of my husband). He jumped up and got me Kleenex. He said he would take care of everything for me, that I would have no problems. In a lot of incidences, I was the student with him.” As of now, McCracken’s family has not set a date for his funeral, but Barringer said he would email staff and students when that information becomes available.

backward, in order to do it all once more – only faster this time. These are the members of the Kent Dragon Boat Association as they train for their upcoming season. On April 6, the group had its annual awakening the dragon ceremony where all the paddlers gathered at Lake Meridian to talk, eat and go out on the lake for a couple hours worth of paddling to kick off the spring season. The next two Saturdays were dedicated to early morning practice and clinics for new paddlers to get a taste of what dragon boating is like. “It’s very fulfilling,” said coach Maureen Roberts, who’s been dragon boating for the last 10 years. “It’s great to take them from learning how to dragon boat all the way through competing in a race.” Out on the water, as the dragon boaters float near an open spot, Roberts calls out the next drill. “Paddles up,” she yells. “This one is a 30, 30, 30, 30, 30. Ready. Go.” And with a brief description of the number of strokes per set, the group begins to swiftly dig their paddles back into the water.

MICHELLE CONERLY, Kent Reporter In a matter of seconds, the drill is finished, but with the lasting workout on their bodies, fatigue sets in near the end of practice. “Endurance is a big deal,” Roberts said. “It’s a workout because it involves your entire body, particularly your core.

It’s much less of an arm workout as you think. It really involves your entire body.” But it’s all worth it for them as their first race of the season is Saturday in Olympia, where 30 teams will gather for an all-day sprint race, food and fun.

City’s chief administrative officer to retire

KENT

MAN GETS 66 YEARS IN PRISON FOR ATTEMPTED MURDER OF 3 WOMEN A Kent man received a maximum prison sentence of 66 years for three counts of firstdegree attempted murder for stabbing three women in 2011 in Des Moines. Jojo D. Ejonga, 22, was sentenced April 19 in King County Superior Court at the Norm Maleng Regional Justice Center in Kent, according to the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office. A jury convicted Ejonga in January for the May 2011 knife attack on three unarmed women, one of whom was seven-months pregnant. He faced a sentence range of 51 to 66 years in prison. Ejonga had been friends with one of the women and her brother. Ejonga was kicked out of their Des Moines home for stealing money from the woman’s mother. Ejonga, claiming he would pay back money he owed for the theft and for damaging her car, met with the woman and two of her friends, but then, without warning, attacked them, according to charging papers. The assault was so severe that two of the women were hospitalized in critical condition. When one of the women attempted to flee, Ejonga chased after her.

John Hodgson, the city of Kent’s chief administrative officer (CAO), will retire May 31. The city of Kent announced Hodgson’s retirement in a Monday media release. Hodgson has been a key executive in leading Kent through the worst recession in decades, a demographic shift and large population growth, according to the release. He has worked 33 years in municipal government service, including the last seven as the city’s CAO. Hodgson’s responsibilities cover

virtually all of the city’s day-to-day operations including economic development, finance, human resources, parks, police and six other departments. He is credited with leading through the recession, costcutting efforts, and senior leadership team development. Mayor Suzette Cooke called Hodgson an “outstanding leader,� adding that “no one can question the integrity, dedication and creativity he brought to the job� along with “a strong commitment to provide the best leadership for both our residents and staff.� Cooke said she will name an interim CAO soon, but will delay

seeking a permanent successor until after the elections this fall. Cooke is seeking her third term as mayor. Tim Clark, a former city councilman and current Kent School Board member, is challenging Cooke for the seat. “Advertising for the position, during a political campaign will impede our ability to secure the best candidate,� Cooke said. “It’s a big job, and this community deserves the benefit of an intense search for just the right person.� Hodgson said that after three decades in municipal government, “it’s time for me to take the next step in my career.� He plans to unwind

this summer by playing golf, doing home projects and traveling with his childhood sweetheart and wife of 36 years, Kandace. “This is exactly the right time,� Hodgson said. “I’ve always planned to fully retire at 62, and have said the last five years of my career would be doing something different. I’ll be 57 in a couple of weeks, and I’m excited for a new adventure.� Kent hired Hodgson as parks director in 1994. He was appointed interim CAO by outgoing Mayor Jim White in 2005. Cooke hired him as CAO in May 2006, five months into her first four-year term.

Kent firefighter dies from brain cancer REPORTER STAFF

From out of the shadows Army veteran and motivational speaker JR Martinez was the special guest of the Green River Community College’s Artist and Speaker Series on April 18. Martinez, who suffered third-degree burns after a bomb exploded while on duty as an infantryman in Iraq, travels the country spreading his message of positivity. “When faced with adversity, he took the positive spin,� said Dani Chang, director of student services, leadership and involvement who coordinated the event. In front of a group of 200 people, Martinez relayed his message of hope and positive thinking to students, community members and fellow veterans from all branches of the military.

Kent firefighter Robert W. “Bob� Schmidt died Sunday night after a 10-month battle with brain cancer. Family, friends, and fellow firefighters were at his side when he passed away, according to a Kent Fire Department media release. He is survived by his wife, Kim; and his two sons, Erik and Alex. Because his cancer was determined to have been caused by his work as a firefighter, Schmidt’s death is considered to be a line of duty death, according to fire officials. He will be honored by the state at the 2014 Washington State Fallen Firefighter Memorial Service. The fallen firefighter service is held annually in Olympia to honor those Washington State firefighters who have given their lives for the communities they served. Funeral services are

[4] April 26, 2013 Air, Inc., the Ohio-based operator of the cargo jet, determined a loose bolt caused the door to fall off, according to FAA documents obtained by the Kent Reporter through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request. “You’re kidding, oh my gosh,� Rinabarger said when told by a reporter about the previous 18 incidents of the part falling off the planes. “It’s one of those things where you wonder what if it had hit a home. And my husband had just come in the door from walking the dog.� A neighbor had just

pulled his car out of the driveway a few minutes before the plane’s door slammed to the street. Just moments later that morning school children were walking down the street. “All the ways it could have been horribly devastating,� said Rinabarger, who has lived with her husband in the neighborhood for 34 years. “Thank goodness it didn’t hit my husband or the dog or a kid but landed in the street.� After the FAA declined to release further details about the incident besides that a landing gear door had fallen from a Boeing

767, the Kent Reporter filed a FOIA request in February with the FAA. The agency last week mailed to the paper reports, photos, emails and a compact disc connected with the incident. A few pages were partially redacted by the FAA under FOIA exemptions that protect trade secrets, confidential commercial or financial information as well as inter-agency memos and letters that would be considered privileged because of attorney work product and attorneyclient privilege. The details that were released included investigations of the incident by the FAA, Boeing and ABX Air. “We had just talked a few days ago and wondered what had happened with all of that,� Rinabarger said about the investigation. The FAA, Boeing and ABX Air, agreed that a loose bolt caused the door to fall off about nine miles from its approach to Boeing Field. “The loose bolt caused the bolt to wear over time and eventually led to the failure of the bolt,� according to the analysis by ABX Air. “Once the mid-forward bolt fractured, this forced the door backward causing the remaining attachments to fracture and departure of the door.� The report also included a background statement from Boeing. “Boeing previously received reports of loose and/or fractured MLG shock strut door attach hardware,� according to documents. “Between 2000 and 2009 Boeing noted 18 cases of shock strut doors departing the airplane. Boeing has released Service Bulletins and Service Letters that provide instructions to inspect and install improved attachment hardware on

It fell from the sky: The landing gear door of a Boeing 767 fell from the sky last fall onto the street in the 12800 block of Southeast 231st Way on the East Hill.

A Boeing service bulletin issued in 2003 reported “approximately 50 fitting fractures (on the main gear strut doors) from seven different operators.� The report continued, “some operators are flying airplanes with the strut door removed or do frequent inspections that are necessary because of temporary repairs.� Doug Alder, a Boeing spokesman contacted Tuesday by email for further comment about the past problems with 767 landing gear doors said “at this point we can’t offer any comment or details.� ABX Air, a subsidiary of Air Transport Services Group, has operated the 767-281 aircraft that dropped its door since 2003. All Nippon Airways and Airborne Express previously owned the jet built 28 years ago, according to www.planespotters.net/. ABX Air inspected 33

of its 767 aircraft after the Kent incident, a total of 66 shock strut door installations. Inspectors found 54 parts to be fine, six loose bolts, five loose rods and one bushing worn. “ABX does not consider these findings to be major or a deficiency with the ABX Maintenance Program,� according to documents. But the company recommended improvements to the maintenance program to include more specific checks of the bolts and mountings on the landing gear doors. The two pilots on the jet last fall over Kent didn’t know the door had fallen off. Crews performing a post-flight maintenance walk around at Boeing Field discovered the right main gear strut door was missing. Rinabarger called the Kent Police and the FAA when the part fell outside of her house. FAA inspectors picked up the part and took it the FAA’s Flight Standards Division office in Seattle. “We heard a big crash,�

she said. “My husband and I walked out and I saw a big metal thing. I thought it was a road work sign. But my husband walked over and saw it was a door to an airplane. It was crazy.� An FAA inspector told Rinabarger that planes lose little pieces all of the time. That wasn’t much comfort to Rinabarger. The FAA also told her she could call after the investigation was complete to find out more details. Rinabarger said she never made that call but wondered what had happened. For sometime after the plane part fell, Rinabarger and her neighbors looked at the approaching planes differently. “We always notice the landing gear doors because they are at the same altitude when they are coming in,� she said. “It was after they lowered the door that it fell off.� The crashing plane part onto Rinabarger’s street certainly sticks in her mind. “It was an interesting day for sure,� she said.

Guns are not the answer I have no problem with gun lovers who are quick to pull a trigger to kill each other, but I draw the line when people who are unarmed end up being killed by people carrying guns. Anyone killing an unarmed person should be charged with a capital offense. We have gone too far when we allow gun owners to chase after unarmed people, even shooting them in the back, and allowing them to claim self-defense. I have just returned from a trip to Dubai and Cape Town and didn’t feel threaten or fearful in either place. I was treated with respect by all I encountered, starting with employees of the airline and airport employees. I am waiting for the day Americans will start caring about each other and treat one another with respect.

EDITOR’S NOTE

“Should the state strengthen its DUI laws?”

Mark Klaas

Question of the week:

The youth pastor and veteran NFL fullback raised the fitness magazine for all to see. Such cover images of chisled, ripped bodybuilders, Eddie Williams warned his young audience at Auburn High School, send the wrong message to growing, impressionable teens. And those quick, even drastic methods for reaching physical greatness are chock full of lies. There are safer, more practical approaches to ensuring a healthy lifestyle, he emphasized. Like eating right, making the right choices and being accountable for who you are, he said. “Take responsibility for what you’re doing,” Williams told the students at the Performing Arts Center during the school’s DECA event on good health, Trojans Take Charge, last Friday. “You need effort and control … but you need to believe in yourself. Don’t be a victim of the culture.” Getting lean and mean doesn’t come from a magazine, Williams said. There are no fast, weight-shedding solutions or 30-day, muscle-maxing methods that can do a body good. The media perpetuates myths about fitness and nutrition. Pacing the stage, Williams preached a message different from the sermons he routinely delivers at his Christian fellowship in Covington. Williams, a 245-pound fullback for the Cleveland Browns and a former Seahawk, tours the country, spreading the gospel of good health to schools, organizations and churches. Among his topics — faith, leadership, motivation, health and nutrition, drug/alcohol prevention, bullying, teen violence and the consequences of fatherlessness. “My goal is to help create awareness about the importance of health, be it physically,

and that is what makes Kent the great city it is. Once again we had multiple categories this year where there were ties in both the winner and finalist rankings. I would like to congratulate everyone who received votes and also thank the loyal readers of the Kent Reporter for their support

If you own a vehicle, chances are it needs some work. National Car Care Month in April is the ideal time to spring into action and give your car some extra attention. Results of vehicle inspections held at community car care events across the country reveal that 77 percent of vehicles need service or parts. Neglected vehicle care almost always means much higher costs down the line in the form of more extensive repairs or lost resale value. Whether you visit a professional service technician or do it yourself, a thorough vehicle inspection this spring can keep your car safe and dependable. Following a routine maintenance program on an ongoing basis. – Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council (www.carcare.org)

Williams shared the story of his mother. She struggled with obesity throughout her life, he said, but unable to overcome “the psychological crutch” of

overeating, she developed diabetes and finally cancer before her death in 2001. “The doctors told her that ‘if you could just lose some

weight, we might be able to better operate on you … remove your tumors,’” Williams said. “Doctors said ‘if you lose some weight, we might be able to save you.’ But the psychological toll on her brain did not let her see that. And because she had cancer, she ate more. … Eventually the doctor told her ‘there’s nothing we can do for you.’ “This is all about giving yourself the best chance at life.” Before he left the stage, Williams flung this challenge at his young audience. “You have a decision to make. (You can have) the pain and the discipline to experience getting healthy that provides you with an excellent life, or you can be comfortable,” he said. “One result is your best chance at life, the other one doesn’t. That’s the big idea. You can take charge of your life, or your life will take charge of you.”

For teens, getting healthy and staying that way begin with the power of knowledge, he said. Teens should be more aware of what they eat. Check everything. “(At a store) I walked up the cereal aisle, and I saw something called Fruity Pebbles, which is good, right?

I want you to change your lives, change the way you think, the way you analyze, change the way you discern things, because it’s about doing the right things.” To bring his message home,

Social studies teachers to attend Brown University Leadership Institute BY MARK KLAAS mklaas@kentreporter.com

History doesn’t necessarily repeat itself, but similarities can be identified, examined and debated. So says Travis Foltz, a Kent-Meridian High School social studies educator who welcomes the study of the past and how it connects to the present. More specifically, Foltz has identified the 1960s and how that volatile decade parallels the uncertainties of today. “History never repeats itself identically,” Foltz said, “but one of the great things about history is drawing comparisons.” Intrigued by “The Sixties” – a complex period of cultural, political and societal change – Foltz is going back to the classroom in an effort to further engage his students. Foltz recently was selected to attend the Summer Leadership Institute at Brown University in Providence, R.I., on July 8-12. This year’s institute is focused on helping teachers develop the knowledge and skills to lead their classes in deliberations about the civil rights movement, the Vietnam War and other events of the ’60s. Joining Foltz at the symposium will be Mike Papritz, a social studies and AP human geography teacher at Kentridge. Papritz will attend a threeday Summer Geography Institute at Brown themed “Thinking Geographically About International Issues: The Choices Approach.” Using material from the university’s United States in Afghanistan unit as a springboard, the institute will explore ways to introduce students to international issues through a geographic lens. Like Foltz, Papritz intends to bring back key knowledge, skills and strategies to help other social KENT SCHOOL DISTRICT hosts the highest achieving schools in the state at 9 a.m. Tuesday at Kentwood High School, 25800 164th Ave. SE, Covington. State Superintendent of Public Instruction Randy Dorn and State Board of Education Chair Jeff Vincent will recognize 381 schools receiving Washington Achievement Awards for 2012 during a special ceremony. The Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction and the State Board of Education sponsor the awards program.

Foltz

Papritz

studies teachers with their classes For Papritz, geography presents a different approach to learning. “Geography is a study which is very dynamic all the time,” said Papritz, who is in his ninth year at Kentridge and has 20 years in the Kent School District. “If you know how to reach kids

from a geographic standpoint, it makes learning social science information much more interesting in my viewpoint.” From Foltz’s viewpoint, lessons from the past remain relevant to the those posed today. “The 1960s are still very relevant,” said Foltz, one of 23 selected teachers from the country with an opportunity to learn about the civil rights movement and the Vietnam War from scholars, foreign policy experts and civil rights movement leaders at Brown. “It’s relevant because students can make connections

between what’s going on in terms of current events and past wars. Also, that era – in terms of the civil rights movement, the antiwar movement and the identity politics sprung up – is a great study in terms of social movement. “Right now, whether we’re talking about Occupy Wall Street or talking about the huge social movements that are going on within the Middle East … students can make connections.” Brown University’s Choices Program sponsors the institute. The national education program is designed to introduce

substantive international content into secondary school classrooms. The program offers 40 curriculum units on topics relevant to classes on U.S. history, world history, civics and current issues. All units use a problem-based approach to make complex international issues accessible and meaningful to high school students. “Choices provides valuable tools for teaching the 21st century skills my students need to develop as citizens in our global society,” Foltz said. “I am excited to learn more about this important time in U.S.

history and to become more adept at using Choices’ materials on a range of important topics.” “I am looking forward working with Travis,” Papritz said. “We are just trying to add a greater relevance to social studies and education in Kent. “One of the reasons I applied for the institute is to be able to share my learning with other high school social studies teachers so that all students in our district can benefit from these training modules that incorporate higher-level thinking skills and common core application.”

Jail assault

City Hall harassment

Police arrested a city jail inmate for investigation of fourth-degree assault after he reportedly punched and kicked another inmate during a dispute at about 10:26 p.m. April 16 in the B unit of the jail, 1230 Central Ave. S. A jail guard didn’t see the incident but called police after the inmate who was punched reported the fight and said he wanted to press charges, according to the police report. The man said he told the other inmate he had excessive body odor and told him to shower. The inmate replied he had showered and didn’t have body odor. The argument led to a fight when the one inmate punched the other man, pushed him to the floor and kicked him. The man who was attacked had an elbow scrape but no other injuries. He pressed an intercom to alert guards. The fight had ended when guards arrived. Video surveillance as well as a witness confirmed the fight. The man who threw

The man introduced himself as “Uncle Sam� and yelled that he was, “Going up to the mayor’s office and get money owed to him.� He continued to yell and said, “I have the power. I could terrorize and take everyone out.� The man then fled on foot but officers found him nearby at the corner of Fourth Avenue and West Gowe Street.

The piece she found was â&#x20AC;&#x153;Evitaâ&#x20AC;?, an inspiring true story of the First Lady of Argentina and her struggles to become the most powerful political and spiritual leader of her country.

The play â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a musical thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s operatic in nature, with little or no dialogue â&#x20AC;&#x201C; premiered Wednesday night at the Kentridge Performing Arts Center and continues for eight more performances, closing May 4. The story follows Eva Peron and her people as they travel to Argentina and journey through devotion, despair and South American culture. The Tony Awardwinning show gives insights into the story of Peron, an Argentine political figure who was the inspirational leader of the nation and second wife of Argentine President Juan Peron. The story follows Evitaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s early life, rise to power, charity work and eventual death. The Kentridge production recreates Evitaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s engaging story accompanied by two screens that bring videos and still images of her life as the cast plays out the musical on stage.

Walking around the dojo, also known as the school gym, Nguyen gives tips and demonstrates throws, helping her teammates refine their technique during practice. “I try to get the team pumped (and) try to get them to understand things,”

she said. “You can’t get better when working with someone with less skill than you.” For Nguyen, the aspect of community was a main reason she decided to stick with the sport. So soon after joining her high school team, Nguyen also

joined the Zenyu Judo Dojo in Maple Valley. She competes in that club with peers from all over the area, including other Kent high schools. “Everyone’s really close even though you’re competing [ more JUDO page 11 ]

Moore prepares for job as WNBA point guard BY KRIS HILL khill@covingtonreporter.com

Lindsey Moore, who graduates from the University of Nebraska May 4, will have less than 24 hours before she starts her first job after college. The former Kentwood High basketball star was selected in the first round of the WNBA draft by the Minnesota Lynx April 15. She reports to training camp the day after she will receive a degree in communications. “It’s time to get to work and start your job,” Moore said. “It was pretty funny, I was picking up my cap and gown and there’s people asking me if I have a job after college. I was like, ‘Mmhmm. Yes, I do.’” Despite holding a number of records for the Cornhuskers, the 5-foot-9 point guard said in a phone

Ex-Kentwood star Lindsey Moore will go from point guard at the University of Nebraska to the WNBA this season as a member of the Minnesota Lynx.

looked at the potential draft boards? You’re on there.’ ” Moore was surprised the first time it came up. But when agents started contacting her prior to the draft she knew it could happen. This comes after an incredible career at Kentwood which she capped off with a Class 4A state championship her senior year in 2009. At Nebraska, she started all four years and helped the Cornhuskers make consecutive Sweet 16 appearances in the women’s NCAA Division I tournament. She set two single-season records during her senior campaign and holds four career records. Moore is also the only player in Nebraska basketball history – men’s or women’s – to start on two Sweet 16 squads. Though if you asked

her early in the season if the Huskers were going to make it back to the tournament, much less the Sweet 16, Moore may have been a bit doubtful. “It was weird because we started off the Big 10 season 2-3,” Moore said. “At that point I was like there was no way we’re going to make the tournament if we don’t turn it around, then sure enough we went on a 10-game winning streak. We were playing for seeding when it came to our conference tournament.” Moore said she loved her time at Nebraska. She hopes she’s helped lay the foundation for the women’s team to make deep tournament runs every season. “It’s been so much fun to be a Cornhusker,” she said. “My career here has been [ more MOORE page 11 ]

WEST COAST ALL-STAR CLASSIC BOYS BASKETBALL GAME IN KENT MAY 11

After years of dance and gymnastics classes, Christine Nguyen decided to start a new tradition for herself. She joined Kentridge High School’s Judo team her junior year, and things in her life slowly began to change. “I started spending more time on the mat, but my grades got better,” she said. Deeply rooted in tradition, Judo expects a lot out of the athletes, not just physically but socially as well. As she began to train,

Nguyen recognized the lessons in Judo not only applied to her time on the mat but in other areas of life as well. “It’s a way of life,” Nguyen said. “My parents saw how dedicated I was, (and) me and my family, we got on the same page.” Now a senior, the 17-year-old Nguyen hopes that this lifestyle change coupled with all her hard work will help her reach her goals for the season. Only in her second year, Nguyen is a leader in a group of more than 80 students on Kentridge’s

www.kentreporter.com [ MOORE from page 10 ] unbelievable. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been such a great experience to be here â&#x20AC;Ś and coming away from it not just being a good player but also being a better person.â&#x20AC;? Moore credits her high school coach Keith Hennig for preparing her for the transition to the college game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was able to take that and improve upon those skills that he taught,â&#x20AC;? Moore said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be in this place in my career and the possibility of playing in the WNBA if it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t for him.â&#x20AC;? But thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not much that can prepare someone for the whirlwind of the WNBA draft. Moore was one of 12 college players invited to the draft headquarters in Bristol, Conn., and spent the weekend in meetings that covered everything a pro prospect

would need to know. Then April 15, the invitees attended a luncheon with staff from ESPN. From there, Moore said, they went to get hair and makeup done. Finally, she spent some time with her family for a couple of hours before she was on set with the other 11 players for the draft. Moore said she dreamt of playing in the WNBA even before she put on the Kentwood uniform, but it was not something she counted on. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I never thought it would happen,â&#x20AC;? Moore said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was definitely a surprise. It was kind of a shock when I went up there and they called my name. I never would have thought I would be one of the 12 invited and someone would call my name and I would go up there and they would take my picture with a jersey.â&#x20AC;? Moore was the 12th pick

in the draft. Part of the shock came by the team which drafted her. She was expecting a couple of other teams to select her based on phone calls and talk about interest. Minnesota was not on the radar. Though it seemed like a dream, Moore thought to herself as it happened that she couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to call her parents or her two older sisters. She had to wait, though, until after she got off the set to get her cellphone and make those calls. No one wants a cellphone to go off during the selection process. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I picked up my phone and it literally wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop vibrating,â&#x20AC;? Moore said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At that point, I had 75 messages, a ridiculous amounts of tweets, Facebook notifications, my phone was blowing up. It was a really cool thing to experience, especially

A pink dwarf rhodie in bloom now at local nurseries is called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ginny Geeâ&#x20AC;? and another compact variety with red flowers is called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Scarlet Wonder.â&#x20AC;? Both have neat and tidy growth habits. Q. Why wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t my rhododendrons bloom? R., Olympia A. You may have too much shade. Rhododendrons with dark colored flowers are like dark skinned people â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they can take more sun. If you have deep shade choose rhodies with light green leaves and lighter flowers that bloom in shades of white and pale pink. One rhododendron variety that blooms early even in the shade is called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Christmas Cheerâ&#x20AC;? and you can find this shade-lover at local nurseries. A lack of late summer water can also cause rhododendrons to form foliage over flowers. Rhododendrons are

The last week of April is time to fertilize the lawn with a slow release plant food and then add calcium in the form of Super Sweet lime if your grass is full of moss or buttercups. Our naturally acid soil is great for growing rhododendrons, azaleas, blueberries and blue hydrangeas but not so great for growing lawns. Adding calcium is an inexpensive way to raise the pH and make the soil less acid. The lime in the calcium also helps to break up clay soils and improves drainage. Our state flower is the rhododendron and to celebrate your civic pride, add a rhododendron to the garden this spring. We are lucky to have a world class rhododendron collection in Federal Way as part of the Weyerhaeuser campus. The Rhododendron Species Garden is spectacular this month and a walk through the 15-acre grounds can afflict anyone with rhodie fever. Companion plants for rhododendrons are also on display, including the elusive Himalayan Blue poppy in bloom right now at the Rhododendron Species Garden. Many of the rhododendrons you buy from nurseries have been bred or hybridized. In Federal Way you can view more than 700 varieties of the species

In fact, when the Lynx selected her, Moore said, her family instantly became fans of the Minnesota team which lost in the league finals in 2012. The next step for her family, Moore said, was to find out when Minnesota travels to Seattle to play. While she still has some business to take care of at Nebraska in terms of classes and finals, Moore is ready to start the next phase of her basketball career. She will back up Lindsay Whalen, a 10-year WNBA veteran and Olympic gold medalist. Moore sees considerable opportunity in her role for the Lynx. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a great point guard in Lindsay Whalen, so, it will be about giving her breaks,â&#x20AC;? Moore said.â&#x20AC;?
