At issue is a 27-acre parcel of land directly opposite the popular park north of Enumclaw, just across Veazie-Cumberland Road.

Old-timers will remember a time when the state wasn’t involved in the forested land surrounding pristine Deep Lake. The Nolte family operated a resort on the property, which has always been a popular spot for swimming, family picnics, walking the trail around the lake and fishing. The resort eventually closed and, decades ago, Minnie Nolte decreed

King County Fire District 28 was thrown another curve July 10. Commissioner Ryan Terhune was seriously injured during an offroad motorcycle accident in Idaho. Terhune is expected to recover and as of Thursday was still in the hospital. The three-commissioner board was already down to two after Chris Ingham resigned his commission seat June10. The board was in the process of selecting commissioner to replace Ingham. The plan was to begin interviews and select a commissioner in August.

It has been a popular destination since.

Street Fair features fun By Kevin Hanson Senior Writer

The Enumclaw Street Fair has expanded to a three-day event this year, turning downtown into a mix of vendor booths and entertainment. Again under the primary sponsorship of the Enumclaw Rotary Club, the Street Fair will operate from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday

and Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m Sunday. Getting around downtown will be a dicey proposition for motorists – but friendly for those on foot – as Cole Street will be closed between Marshall and Stevenson avenues from early Friday morning until Sunday evening. Visitors to the Street Fair can expect to see approximately 120 vendors offering arts and crafts, food and general merchandise. Some are local but most will trekking to Enumclaw from outside the area. Live entertainment is planned for nearly every hour of the Street Fair, either on the main stage or a secondary stage, both in the parking lot at Cole Street and Initial Avenue. Acts range from a magic show to a country band, from a dance troupe to blue-

grass and Latin tunes. Popular children’s entertainer Eric Ode is slated to perform from 10:30 to 11:30 Saturday morning. Missing this time around will be a carnival, replaced by the more affordable Fun Zone and Toddler Zone and presented by the regional Clowns Unlimited. The Fun Zone is made up of five inflatable attractions and two mechanical rides; tickets will be sold individually, as an unlimited day pass or as a three-day pass. The Toddler Zone will be for children 2 to 4 years old; the only option will be a $5 daily pass. New to this year’s Street Fair is Art On Cole, a special area to celebrate the art and artists of the region. Artists will be featured in booths lining Initial Avenue between Cole and Railroad streets.

The 67th annual Pacific Northwest Scottish Highland Games and Clan Gathering will take over the Enumclaw Expo Center Saturday and Sunday. These Highland Games, hosted by the Seattle Scottish Highland Games Association, are the sixtholdest in the United States and are traditionally the largest in Washington state. Recent events have attracted close to 28,000 visitors. Those who attend can watch muscular athletes who deftly toss the caber or put the stone, delight in the soothing sound of a Celtic

harpist, thrill in the bourdon of the bagpipes and the cadence of the drums and behold the grace and elegance of the Scottish, English, Irish and Welsh dancers. Annual highlights include Saturday’s welcoming ceremony, complete with the massing of the pipe and drum bands and the parade of the clans. Another favorite is the traditional ceilidh (pronounce it “kay-lee”), a Scottish party Saturday evening. Visitors can stroll through the Avenue of the Clans, delve into Scottish

budget. As an offshoot, the department has looked to best utilize its holdings, a process that includes divesting itself of unused land. That’s where the 27 acres adjacent to Nolte State Park comes into play. It was part of the land obtained through Minnie Nolte’s generosity but has never been considered part of the park. A few years ago, park planners thought the land might be turned into a septic system to serve the park, but that idea was scrapped due to high costs. Finally, it was recommended the 27 acres be considered surplus and put on the auction block. The state has retained one acre for future use as a trailhead and also has kept a 60-foot easement along the road to provide a forested buffer between the park and future development of the land.

FIRE FROM 1 Because there can be no quorum without Terhune, board meetings and the selection process is on hold. According to state law, the King County Council will fill the board position if the board is unable to select a member in 90 days, which would be Sept. 10. Fire Chief Joe Clow the lack of a quorum has a direct impact on “the 2014 budget process and we were going to address a levy lid lift.” The deadline for a fire district levy lid lift is Aug. 6 and

the next board meeting is Aug. 5, which may have to be cancelled due to a lack of a quorum. “We are trying to figure out all the details and respect that Ryan is injured and needs to get better,” Clow said. The chief said according to a district resolution he, along with the district secretary, can approve vouchers until the board is able to meet. Terhune’s seat, Position No. 2, is up for election in November and he had decided not to run. Angela Stubblefield and Elbert Reed are running for the seat.

Buckley lands grant to finish 165 realignment Buckley’s hope to complete realignment of its tangled “dysfunction junction” is one of just five projects recommended for funding by the Puget Sound Regional Council. The Buckley project is estimated to cost $1.6 million and is, by far, the most expensive item singled out through the PSRC’s Rural Town Centers and Corridors Program. The $1.6 million would cover both design and construction costs. The confusing intersection on the south end of town was helped a year ago when 112th Street East was aligned with Ryan Road, eliminating one entry point onto a busy stretch of state Route 410. Now, the city

wants to realign state Route 165 at SR 410, creating a “T intersection” to improve traffic flow and improve safety for pedestrians, cyclists and trail users. Making the PSRC’s short list, aside from Buckley, were projects in Kingston, Snoqualmie, Snohomish and Monroe. The PSRC is looking for public comment on the projects through Aug. 9. A final decision on funding will be made by PSRC’s executive board in September. Also out for public comment are five contingency projects in line to receive funding should any additional money become available. That list includes a project in Enumclaw as well as a second project in

Buckley. The Enumclaw item seeks $1.3 million for channelization of SR 410 and the other Buckley project asks for $750,000 for construction of a missing link of Foothills Trail between Buckley and South Prairie. Anyone wishing to comment on the spending plan can write to: Puget Sound Regional Council, attn: Jeff Storrar, 1011 Western Ave., Suite 500, Seattle, 981041035.

Buckley voters being asked to decide fate of natural gas utility By Kevin Hanson Senior Writer

Customers in Buckley could begin saving money early next year if the city moves forward with an anticipated sale of its natural gas utility. While there are no guarantees, gas rates could drop 10 percent for residential customers and 6 percent for business clients when the utility becomes property of Puget Sound Energy. That was the early word from Mayor Pat Johnson following last week’s action by members of the Buckley City Council. During their meeting of July 9, council

members agreed to accept PSE’s bid of $5.4 million for the utility and, further, to asked voters in November whether they want the city to shed itself of the increasinglydifficult gas system. The city’s natural gas utility was formed decades ago with taxpayer dollars, so it will take a majority of Buckley’s voters to authorize a sale. Buckley is one of just three cities in Washington that maintains its own gas utility, the others being nearby Enumclaw and the Kittitas County community of Ellensburg.

Socrates would find Letters festivities a lot to whine about Fourth were great, but misses While listening to a professor discuss the ancient Greek philosopher Socrates this weekend a couple of things struck me. It occurred to me it was no wonder the Greeks knocked him off. He dressed funny and almost never took a bath. One of the writers of antiquity said his wife was a shrew. Can we blame her? He made no money, dressed in a muumuu and smelled like rotten Greek yogurt. The official reason the Athenians gave for killing off Socrates was he was a bad influence on the kids and made up goofy gods. Nothing like tyranny in a democracy. My, how things have changed. Dennis Box The other thought Editor that hurt my feeble brain was a dialogue of Plato’s where Socrates discussed writing. Socrates said writing would ruin the youth. He said it would weaken the youth’s verbal ability and memory. That darn writing. As far as we know Socrates never wrote anything. Everything we know of Socrates comes from Plato and Xenophon. If Socrates was walking around today in his muumuu I think he would be making the same argument about texting or Twitter or Facebook or the Web or TV. I suspect old guys like me and Mr. Muumuu like to whine about something and remember the good old days, which weren’t. I have been reading Web reports lately that kids don’t like Facebook anymore because old people have taken it over with pictures of the same kids who don’t like Facebook anymore. I have yet to read anything about where the kids are going now on the Web. Maybe they have read Plato and have stopped writing, or posting. I went to a newspaper conference a few years ago and there were a bunch of hand wringers standing around whining about the demise of newspapers and reporting the sky is falling because, “kids not reading anymore.” I suspect the kids aren’t reading what those guys were writing. I have found kids read when it matters. Critical thinking skills are often lacking. I see examples of that in my job almost daily and always from adults. I think I need a muumuu and some rotten Greek yogurt for my oatmeal.

LAST WEEK: Was justice served in the George Zimmerman trial?

Mexican entry in parade Those who were responsible for this year’s July Fourth celebration are to be commended. The fireworks were a great show and the parade a real crowd pleaser. I especially appreciated the Nordic group in the parade. As a group they were helping us celebrate our freedoms and reminding us that as a society we are made up of many cultures. I was reminded of a parade a few years ago when there was a large contingent from the Mexican community which added a great deal of color and exuberance to our July

4th parade. Afterwards, someone complained that they should not have been allowed to participate in “our Independence” parade. It would appear that individual’s comments were justly received as a slight and effectively stopped any further participation by that group. I am sorry to say that I did not stand up and speak out against that individual. I feel anyone who wants to help me celebrate such an occasion should be allowed to come to the party. I would like to offer my apology to the Mexican community for remaining quiet and allowing the impression that this individual spoke for us all. I would ask you to consider the parade next year. I missed what you have to offer to the celebration. Bill Hougham Enumclaw

Councilman offers explanation for rash of recent absences In the off chance that anyone has noticed, as of July 22 I was absent for five Enumclaw City Council meetings in a row. In my 10 years on council, I don’t think I’ve ever missed two meetings in a row…or even five meetings in an entire year. I never foresaw this happening and wanted to take a moment to publicly explain my absence from Council. Two of my absences were due to out-of-town work commitments, one absence was for my daughter’s graduation from Enumclaw High School and the other two absences were due

Pill brought some big changes The birth control pill, first approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 1960, has changed the world. By 1962, 1.2 million U.S. women were using it. By 1963, the numbers almost doubled ( Between 2006 and 2008, 82.3 percent of American women aged 15 to 44 were using an oral contraceptive pill (Centers for Disease Control). Today, between 80 million and 100 million women worldwide are using The Pill. Its effects are far ranging: sexual attitudes and gender roles have shifted. Couples are delaying marriage. Premarital sex has increased. In addition, The Pill has led to a sharp increase in college attendance and college degrees for women. This technological advance has far-reach-

ing social and moral effects. Before we examine these modern attitudes brought on by the development of The Pill, let’s journey back to a time where there was no birth control pill. Couples tended to marry earlier and, as a result, have more children. If a young woman got pregnant, there was a strong social stigma for her and shame for her family. Her life could be ruined.

It wasn’t uncommon for women to leave town and go to another area where she would wait in privacy to have her child. It could drastically change a woman’s education and career plans, as well as her husband’s if they got married. Most who are in their 60s and older remember the drastic change in thinking that has evolved in their lifetimes because of The Pill. I remember my mother’s aphorism growing up in the 1950s. “The first child can come at any time, the second takes nine months.” How attitudes have changed since my childhood! According to a Harvard study by Harding and Jencks on premarital sex, more than 75 percent of

Course appears in good hands Let’s get one thing straight at the outset: I’m not a golfer. Never have been and never will be. The sport just doesn’t work with me. Nevertheless, I have a lot of friends who are avid golfers and, through the years, I’ve listened to their complaints about, and their interpretation of, the history of the Enumclaw course. Back in the day, the county owned the fairgrounds and fairways and kept both in pretty good condition. Then the nation’s economy snapped and the county couldn’t afford to keep them so, eight or nine years ago, it bailed out and Enumclaw took over. Of course, local government officials didn’t necessarily know much

about running a golf course; consequently, they hired someone to do that. Right from the start, nothing went well. Given the recession, the new manager couldn’t fulfill his contractual obligations with the city. He complained that the city’s cut was too large. He tried to negotiate a new lease and, when this proved unsuccessful, he simply waited for his con-

tract to expire and walked away. The grass wasn’t adequately mowed, fairways weren’t treated properly, the pro shop and cafe went downhill and the green at the second hole turned into a swamp because steps weren’t taken to improve the drainage. Then, five months ago, the city signed a five-year lease with a new manager, Bob Gelinas. Bob had played the professional mini-tours for a few years and, prior to his arrival here, had managed several other golf courses in the Northwest region. Contrary to what I assumed, he doesn’t receive a salary from our city. Instead, his income is derived solely from green fees and cart rent-

Applications sought for new White River director Members of the White River School Board are looking for someone to join their ranks. A board vacancy exists due to the death of Susan McGuire, a longtime district board member, volunteer and school advocate. She had served on the school board since 1996. Directors now will appoint a person to complete two years of her four-year term on the board. She filled the Position No. 2 seat. The application period will begin Aug. 1 and conclude on Aug. 30. A review

of applications and candidate interviews will be conducted by the four remaining board members on Sept. 5. The board hopes to select a candidate and have that person take the oath of office during the Sept. 11 board meeting. Applicants must live within the Position No. 2 boundaries. A district map and application form is available by contacting the school district. All applications should be submitted to Denise Vogel, chairwoman of the board of directors, at the district administration office by 4:30 p.m. Aug. 31.

‘Green School’ honor goes to Westwood Elementary Westwood Elementary was among 39 schools in 13 districts across King County recognized for its successful conservation practices by the county’s Green Schools program. “Staff and students at these 39 schools have embraced recycling, reducing waste and other conservation actions,” program manager Dale Alekel said. The program has served a growing number of schools each year, with 100

schools participating in 2009-10, 120 in 2010-11, 154 in 2011-12 and 174 this year. The program has three levels which involve students and staff in learning about and practicing conservation of natural resources. Westwood Elementary was among those schools completing Level Two by engaging in energy conservation actions like turning off lights in unoccupied rooms.

EHS trio receive Kiwanis awards The Enumclaw Chapter of Kiwanis International has announced three Enumclaw High School scholarship recipients. The attributes Kiwanis members were looking for were school participation, community service, scholarship and life goals. This year’s recipients are Jessica Snoen, Lindsay Ross and Adriana BerreraPachuca. Each will receive a $1,000 award to be used toward college tuition. Snoen will attend Boise State University in the fall, majoring in elementary education.

LETTERS FROM 6 to a much-needed, twoweek family vacation to Maui where we just happened to leave on a council meeting Monday and return at 11 p.m. the next council meeting Monday (poor planning on my part). The good news is that I now know that the city runs as well or better with me gone, but I’m anxious to get back in the saddle in August. I take my responsibility as a councilman very seriously and these recent scheduling conflicts have been a little embarrassing. Jim Hogan Enumclaw City Council

Support goes for Black Diamond challenger My husband and I joined the festivities at Black Diamond Miner’s Day, where we had a chance to see the candidates for mayor of Black Diamond and hear talk about the effects of YarrowBay on our community. It was a surprise to hear the establishment say this is “done deal.” We also read your recent newspaper article on the topic. It is astounding to us that the incumbent mayor and the planning commission chair actually think YarrowBay housing is a cure-all for budget needs of our town. The real estate taxes are years away and will not pay for all the new services that will be needed. But of course, the two candidates from the old regime are going to defend YarrowBay’s monstrosity of a development. It happened on their watch and they are responsible for the looming disaster. Things will not get better when YarrowBay starts building. Their first clearcut will hurt our local property values. Thousands of fill trucks will damage our roads and our peaceful surroundings. As our forest goes down, so goes the

wildlife and the purity of the streams and our lake’s water. The ultimate insult is the idea that the inevitable traffic gridlock will be solved by no less than nine traffic signals on 169. What we need is someone new in the mayor’s office. The development plan is still being challenged in court and if that succeeds we need a mayor ready to protect Black Diamond. Even if the court ruling is mixed, we need a mayor that stands up for us against a powerful land developer. Dave Gordon is running for mayor because he can handle the job. Dave Gordon has got our vote. Richard and Linda LaConte Black Diamond

Mayoral foe will look out for city’s best interests Black Diamond is at a critical point. YarrowBay is set to proceed with their scheme that would multiply the size of our city. Is this a “done deal?” The answer is that it is never done. Depending on rulings for the legal appeal, we could go back to the start of the process. Do we want essentially what we have now to be shoved through again? Or do we want a development size more suited to our region? The person we have as mayor is crucial to this. Or the rulings could let YarrowBay continue on their wildly expansionist ways. It’s not a done deal then, either. Hundreds of permits, with various possible conditions requested, will be required in the normal course of events. And expect YarrowBay to ask for minor amendments, variances, exemptions from requirements, favorable code interpretations and so forth. These are matters for city staff, which is ultimately under control of the mayor. There are reviews down

the road, too. Again, the mayor and staff are major players as to how these reviews are done. The person we elect as mayor is key to all this. Dave Gordon will work to control the massive YarrowBay developments. He has my vote. But would residential growth provide revenue to the city budget? The revenue will not increase enough to cover the cost of providing city services to the new households. True, there is a onetime real estate excise tax for each home sale. But this is required to go to the capital improvement budget, not the general fund. The only way to increase net revenue to the general fund is by business growth. We can’t just close our eyes, cross our fingers and wish really hard that if we build it (residential growth) they will come (business growth). YarrowBay doesn’t care about this. Their job is to build dwelling units. We have to do what other cities are doing to attract businesses that are mutually compatible with our city. Dave Gordon knows this. He has my support. YarrowBay is a large corporation with plenty of resources at their disposal. They don’t need our elected officials to help them. We, the citizens, need our elected officials to protect us from potential excesses. Dave Gordon will look out for us. He has my vote. Carol Lynn Harp Black Diamond

I have been looking in the paper for something from Rich Elfers and Wally (DuChateau), but not a word. What I am talking abut is Common Core education standards. These standards represent an acceleration of the dumbing down and nationalization processes in effect in our public schools, private and home schoolers. Since the main national standardized tests, SAT and ACT, would be based on the new educational standards, private and home schools would also be forced to teach according to Common Core standards for English language and mathematics classes. One of the groups behind common core is Achieve Inc., which wrote its national standards. Achieve received most of its funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Other backers and promoters are

and include unrepentant Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers and former governor of Florida Jeb Bush who led a conference sponsored by General Electric who also owns NBC and MSNBC. Common Core’s subpar standards would replace classical literary masterpieces such as the works of William Shakespeare, Mark Twain, T.S. Eliot and C.S. Lewis with simple brochures, restaurant menus, technical manuals and government pamphlets. The purpose of literature would no longer be to expand children’s creative thinking and vocabulary skills, but rather to make them practical components of a managed world economy and labor market. Current state math standards would likewise be dumbed down by the new Common Core standards. Twenty-six states are already fighting this, so call your state legislators now and go to your school board meetings, as well as telling family and friends. After all, your children and grandchildren’s welfare and education are in your hands, not the government’s. If you don’t believe me look up Common Core for yourself and be informed. Neal Grove Enumclaw Editor’s note: Washington is among the 45 states that have adopted Common Core State Standards.

We would like to voice our support for Dave Gordon, an excellent candidate for the next mayor of Black Diamond. After speaking with Dave a couple things really stood out. First, he is a very genuine person and really wants to help our town control and manage growth. Second, and probably the most important for us, Dave is willing to listen to folks and shares their concerns when it comes to the YarrowBay developments. Someone voiced that there is only one “qualified” candidate in this race. Unfortunately, it is that “qualified” experience that has gotten the city into the terrible position it is now. We’d rather have a fresh perspective in the mayor’s office and Dave is smart and has experience learning and succeeding in different fields. As for time, the city’s annual budget of only $14,076 for mayor means that Dave’s willing dedication of as much time and energy as it takes to get the job done right is a bargain. While I can appreciate that the current mayor is touting her various endorsements, it matters not to us because a good portion of those individuals do not live or vote in Black Diamond. What this town needs is a mayor and council that are willing to

listen to and work for the citizens. Most residents expect some type of development will happen but to stay on the current path will destroy the small town charm of Black Diamond. There is nothing about 6,050 new homes and gridlock that could ever be considered charming or “rural by design.” Brian and Leslie Weber Black Diamond

that calls the world “fallen” but I usually just say the world is “broken.” It isn’t working right. And the biggest reason it isn’t working right is because we all do pretty much whatever we want. And even when we try to get it right, we sometimes don’t succeed; it’s as if we are just smart enough to know there is a right way things should be, but not self-disciplined enough to do things that way every time. And there have been a lot of people trying to figure out how to do things right, so the broken world could work better. It just hasn’t worked. One reason we don’t do better is that we often won’t admit we are broken. We find it easier to justify what we have done than to admit we messed things up because we need to feel good about ourselves and confessing our broken pieces of our lives doesn’t make us feel so good. But there is a healing and a new life waiting for us when we are willing to confess how broken we are. Denial keeps us stuck in the mess but confession opens the door to new life. There is another concept in Christian

faith that we call redemption; it is the idea that God reaches out to us in love trying to persuade us to let him save us. And God redeems us because God thinks you and I are worth that much. God thinks we are valuable for more than what we can do. God values us just because he loves what he has made. God thinks you are worth more than the whole world. God sent his son to prove how much he values us. Christians aren’t inherently “better” than anyone else; we’re flawed, broken people, too. But we are also people who have turned to God and found a power that is able to heal our broken lives and to create a new life that can learn to do better at caring for others and the world around us. God didn’t send his son into the world to condemn the world, but to save it (John 3:17). And it seems to me that the world does need saving; it’s a broken mess. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Watch pet’s weight, avoid other ailments It’s usually a matter of too much food, combined with too little exercise Welcome to Buckley Veterinary Hospital’s monthly pet care column. Since we’re having a pretty amazing summer thus far, we want to highlight health issues that can be exacerbated by warmer weather; particularly, if your pets are carrying some extra layers of insulation. This month, we are discussing ideal pet weights and how to recognize if your pet is underweight or overweight by its body shape and mass. Monitoring your dog or cat’s weight is an important part of keeping your furry family members healthy. If your pet is underweight, this could be an early indication of an underlying medical disorder. If your pet is overweight or obese, this can lead to other health problems including diabetes, arthritis, heart problems and breathing problems. Obesity develops when energy intake exceeds

ment of your pet’s body condition by following these simple steps: – Gently glide your hands down your pet’s rib cage. You should just be able to feel the ribs without applying pressure. If you need to press firmly to feel the ribs, this is overweight. If you cannot feel the ribs at all, this represents an obese animal. If you can see the ribs and there is little to no fat cover, that is referred to as underweight. – Observe and feel your pet’s tail if they will allow you to do this. You should just be able to feel the tail bones as you touch the tail. There should be a little fat cover over the tail bones so you cannot see them. You will need to apply pressure to feel the tail bones if your pet is overweight. You will not be able to feel any bones if your pet is obese. You will be able to easily see the tail bones in a pet that is underweight. – Observe your pet from the top so you can visualize its back. From this view, you should be able to observe a definite


A family’s best friend will live a happier and healthier life if weight issues are controlled. energy requirements. The excess energy is then stored as fat. Once a pet is obese, it may remain obese even after excessive caloric intake stops. The majority of cases of obesity are related to simple overfeeding coupled with lack of exercise. Certain groups of dogs appear more prone to obesity than others. Specific breeds (Labrador retrievers and pugs, for example) and older dogs are particularly prone. Body condition scoring

systems have been developed by veterinarians, serving as a useful, easy-touse management tools to determine the nutritional needs of pets. At Buckley Veterinary Hospital, we use a numeric scoring system from 1 to 5 ranging from emaciated to obese and the spectrum in between. Learning how to body condition score your animal is easy to do and will help keep your pet in optimal condition. At home, you can do a self-assess-





involved with any kind of weight loss plan. A diet that is too calorie restricted or a plan that results in rapid weight loss can be harmful to your dog and especially to your cat. As we mentioned earlier, overweight pets have many added stresses upon their body and are at an increased risk of diabetes, liver problems and joint pain. Your veterinarian can help prevent these added stresses, by addressing weight issues. The true goal is prevention of illness, pain and suffering. Comprehensive annual exams of all body systems can help diagnose, treat or prevent many health problems before they become life-threatening. More importantly, they help you, as a pet owner, provide a longer, healthier and happier life for your best friend. Please consult your veterinarian if you have questions regarding your pet’s feeding and exercising schedules. Education and prevention is key.

waist or contour. If there is no waist at all and your dog or cat looks round in shape, this would be obese. A very thin or underweight animal will have an exaggerated hourglass appearance in their waist. – Observe your pet from the side. An abdominal tuck should be present if your pet has an ideal body condition. The area behind the ribs should be smaller than the chest. If your pet has an exaggerated abdominal tuck, it is likely underweight. An obese animal will have no abdominal tuck at all. Again, more often than not, overweight pets are a result of too much food intake and not enough activity. In a recent study, the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention estimated that 44 percent of U.S. dogs were overweight or obese. We as veterinarians can examine your pet to make sure there is not a medical cause for your pet’s weight problem. If medical reasons have been eliminated, we can recommend a diet that will be best to help to achieve an ideal body condition. Beyond a change in diet, regular exercise and restricting the quantity of food that is given are also usually part of a successful weight loss plan. It is imperative to have a veterinarian

he King County Fair and annual rodeo was a staple in the Enumclaw community for decades. The fair had been a part of the summer activites for more than a century, founded in1863. When the budget ax fell in 2009 after the Great Recession, the fair was nearly shut down for good. The county turned the fairgrounds property, now the Expo Center, over to the city of Enumclaw and the fair is now operated by Tennesseebased Universal Fairs. It is billed as the oldest fair west of the Mississippi. In the 1960s and earlier, the rodeo was at Jaycee arena, located west of the old Wishbone Tavern and near the current Yella Beak; at that time the Beak was known as the U&I Tavern. The rodeo grounds had a track and an arena with calf roping and bull chutes. A rodeo queen and princesses were chosen each year and they were part of both the fair and rodeo events. The fair featured five days of 4-H shows including horses, cows, chickens, rabbits, dogs and many other animals.

Family memories of the White River Mill


y grandpa Chris Nelsen worked worked for Weyerhaeuser for 42 years. I think at the White River Lumber one of his first jobs was working on log pond. Company. I don’t know what his Dad’s job was to use a long pole to shove the logs first job was but when he was older toward the saw mill. One day Dad fell or slipped off a log and went under. Another guy he developed a bad heart. They laid him working there saw Dad fall and pulled off because of his health and he became him out. It might have been the end to very depressed. Our grandma felt so bad that job because he couldn’t swim. seeing him feeling like he was worthless Dad loaded lumber into box cars for 16 she went down to see his doctor and ask years. After they stopped using the train him if he could do light work. The docSallie Box to move the lumber, he put lumber onto tor said he could, so the next stop for her trucks. One trucker told Dad that one was the mill to ask the boss if they would please find something for him to do. They gave town he had to go through had a parade so he him a clean-up job of sweeping the floors. He felt just got in line and drove through because his worthwhile again. I don’t think he ever found out load looked good. Dad was a brakeman on the train so he had to jump off the train while it was what she did for him. My dad, Bill Rogers, quit school in the eighth moving so he could switch the track so it would grade to help his mom and dad support the five go to a different rail. One time he jumped off sons and the eight daughters they had. Times and he fell on the coupler, breaking several ribs. were tough back then and with a large family Sometimes he would take Mom, my brother on a coal miner’s wages several boys had to quit Grant and I up to the mill after dinner so he when they were in the eighth grade. One son, could finish his boxcar. I remember the wonderEnoch, worked in the coal mine and Lew worked ful smell from all the lumber, and how huge the making timbers for the mine. I don’t know what shipping shed was. year Dad started working at the mill, but he It was scary walking on a plank from the walk-

way to the box car. It was a ways down to the ground. The mill was a place where pranks were played. One time my dad was going to eat his lunch and he grabbed his lunch bucket handle and was going to pick it up and someone nailed the bucket part to the table. The mill had strong men with big hearts. I remember in their lunchroom they would share their lunch with some tiny mice that would come and eat by the guys. The management heard about all the mice and said they had to put poison out to get rid of all the mice. The guys felt bad they had to do that to the little mice that were like pets. My brother Grant worked as a filer in the saw mill for 35 years. He sharpened something called knives to make some of the wood chips and other saws, too. Our son Curt worked at Weyerhaeuser for 15 years as a millwright. The mill was a place where not only friends but families worked. It was a big shock when they closed the White River Mill after 150 years in Enumclaw. White River Lumber Company became a branch of Weyerhaeuser Timber Company in 1949.

BUCKLEY FROM 4 Johnson said Buckley is simply too small to compete in the natural gas marketplace, unable to strike the deals that result in lower costs. Also, the state’s tiniest utilities must follow the same regulations as large systems, she said, and the mandates are simply more than Buckley can bear. The bottom line, Johnson said, is that city residents and business operators will continue paying more than their fair share for natural gas. City residents have previously shown a willingness to part with the gas utility. A

Wednesday, July 24, 2013 • The Enumclaw Courier-Herald • Page 17 previous survey of ratepayers showed clear support for sale. Johnson said PSE’s $5.4 million offer was slightly more than the city expected, but noted the regional natural gas giant did a thorough examination of Buckley’s system before submitting a bid. While a couple of other gas providers expressed interest, PSE was the only one to offer a formal bid, the mayor said. Voters will decide the fate of the gas delivery system during November’s general election. If approved, the sale would be completed within a couple of weeks, as soon as the election was certified. Johnson said the mil-

lions generated from the sale could be used on improvement projects throughout the city, though no decisions have been made in that regard. Between now and

Buckley looking for citizens to help with statements for voters pamphlet

Buckley is looking for citizens to help draft the “pro” and “con” statements surrounding the potential sale of the city-owned natural gas utility. The measure will be on November’s general election ballot and statements for and against the sale will appear in the Pierce County-issue voters pamphlet. Anyone interested in helping to create a statement for either side is asked to call City Clerk Joann Starr at 360829-1921, ext. 7801, by 5 p.m. Thursday.

November, Johnson said, Puget Sound Energy has indicated a desire to assist with a public education campaign, perhaps hosting open houses to explain what might result from the sale.

M.G., Olympia Yes, this is indeed a knight in shining white blossoms that has rescued heat-stressed hanging baskets. The name of the new lobularia hybrid is Frosty Knight and it looks just like alyssum – but on steroids. Frosty Knight lobularia does well in the ground as a frilly annual peeking over the edge of sunny pathways or in hanging baskets and container gardens. In my garden this cold- and heat-tolerant annual flowered from April until October. So here’s the good news – a second new variety of lobularia with a lavender tinge to the flowers has also been introduced. It is called lobularia Blushing Princess and it should reign with Frosty Knight as a summer favorite for any garden lacking storybook charm. There may still be time to find these new varieties at local nurseries; plant these annuals now and you’ll still be able to enjoy months of color before a killing frost ends the lobularia display in October.

Q. A.

remove entire branches or just pinch off the new growth candles without harming the plant. Pruning rhododendrons during the summer months will sacrifice some of next year’s blooms, however, so prepare to have a more compact but less floriferous rhododendron. Rhodies and azaleas make next year’s flowers in late summer so to really pamper these plants offer more to drink, not more to eat. Shallow-rooted shrubs like rhododendrons need more frequent water during dry spells than other shrubs if you want maximum blooms. Rhododendrons are not heavy feeders and do not need fertilizing every year – especially if they are growing too large for their space. It is just not kind to fertilize shrubs and trees so they will grow faster, then cut off their limbs because they are growing too large. • • • Marianne Binetti has a degree in horticulture from Washington State University and is the author of “Easy Answers for Great Gardens” and several other books.

Women sought for choir, concert to help seniors

ELFERS FROM 6 American adults surveyed in 1979 said premarital sex was wrong. By the 1980s, only 33 to 37 percent thought it was “always” or “almost always wrong.” With the rising U.S. divorce rate in the 1960s and 1970s and the development of The Pill, attitudes about premarital sex changed. Today, premarital sex has become the norm for the majority of the unmarried in America. Additionally, women now earn 60 percent of the college degrees. One of the factors for this

The Allegro Women’s Ensemble is looking for sopranos and altos to become part of the Plateau Women’s Chorale “project choir.” The sole purpose of the project choir is to perform a benefit holiday concert on Dec. 1. All proceeds from the concert will be donated to the local Neighbors Feeding Neighbors program. The choir will be directed by Kathee Lundberg and rehearsals will take place Monday evenings, beginning Aug. 19. There also will be one Saturday rehearsal “retreat.” All participants will be responsible for the cost of their participation - an equal share for all to include music, concert advertising, etc. The organizers’ goal is to keep personal expenses at a minimum. In December 2012, Allegro Women’s Ensemble performed a benefit concert for the Neighbors Feeding Neighbors program, specifically for providing hot meals for homebound senior citizens. Enumclaw is one of a very few communities still able to provide hot meals to homebound seniors and last year’s concert, the Allegro Women’s Ensemble raised almost $1,500, enough to feed one homebound senior citizen for nearly a year.

shift change is the development and use of the birth control pill. According to Margaret Wendt in her book, “An Accidental Canadian,” “The pill decoupled sex and marriage, and it also decoupled marriage and procreation. The purpose of marriage was mutual satisfaction, not children, and once that happened, gay marriage probably became inevitable.” In other words, with the development of The Pill in 1960, attitudes about homosexuality changed as well. No wonder approval of the birth control pill in 1960 has become known as “the most significant med-

als, so the more golfers he attracts the more money he makes. Enumclaw takes a certain fixed percentage of this. Bob quickly points out that the city has always been very cooperative and easy to work with. Today, he has 14 people on his staff, most of whom, as you’d presume, manicure the golf course. The maintenance crew is often mowing the lawn at 4 a.m., so the fairways are ready for a 6 a.m. tee time. Bob has leased the café to Kimberly Seymour and Brandi Vanderlaan. He recently purchased and received 200 tons of sand, of which 140 tons were used to aerate the fairways. Drainage has always been a serious issue. Solving this problem involves placating state and federal environment agencies that, understandably, want to protect the fish and salmon runs in Boise Creek, which meanders through the course. To further exacerbate the situation, the creek tends to flood a portion of the grounds every other year or so. Bob’s currently trying to redesign the irrigation system and this fall will tackle the drainage problem around the 18th hole. Eliminating the “swamp” surround the 11th hole – traditionally the second hole until the numerical order was changed – will be the most difficult challenge. Be that as it may, a number of my golfing friends ardently agree that Bob, in a mere five months, has the course looking better than at any other time in the last 10 years. Congratulations are in order!

ical advance of the 20th century” (BBC News). Clearly, the development of The Pill, now 53 years old, has changed attitudes and actions of both women and men. It has changed our culture dramatically. The Pill’s development has fostered a phenomenon that few of us have stopped to consider.
