High football coach Mark Gunderson worked with the team Thursday as the HorGridiron Glory Enumclaw nets prepare for the 2013 season.

Efforts to build an Enumclaw Welcome Center have followed a twisted and sometimes tortuous path, so it was perhaps no surprise that another roadblock popped up last week. After waiting nine weeks for a definitive answer from the United States Forest Service, city officials were told Aug. 26 that the agency had a maximum of $750,000 to contribute to the project. That’s not enough to cover what had been considered the USFS share of the total cost, putting the entire project at risk of landing on the scrap heap.

Suspect in teen stabbing arrested by detectives James “Jimmy” Sweet turns himself in after family saw news report By Dennis Box Editor

The suspect in the Aug. 24 stabbing of a 14-year-old boy near Enumclaw was arrested Aug. 28 by King County Sheriff’s detectives. James Allen Sweet, 21, turned

himself in to detectives after his family saw he was at large following the crime. Family members told Sweet to surrender to detectives, according to Sgt. Cindi West, spokeswomen for the King County Sheriff’s Office. Sweet was arrested under the charge of first-degree assault and bail was set at $250,000 by King County Superior Court. The stabbing incident occurred about 9:30 p.m. Aug. 24 at the victim’s residence. According to the sheriff’s office

charging form, the boy was at his house celebrating the birthday of an 18-year-old cousin. Sweet is a friend of the cousin and arrived at the residence at about 9 p.m. The group was sitting around a campfire. According to the sheriff’s document, about 15 minutes after Sweet arrived the boy “was joking with his other cousin when Sweet became angry over a comment about the fire.” Sweet came after the boy, “flipped off his hat and grabbed his arm.” According to the document the incident calmed down and Sweet told the boy he “should not mess with a Juggalo, suggesting he himself was a Juggalo gang member.”

See CENTER, Page 4

Sweet got up and went to his backpack, then confronted the boy again. The boy, “thought Sweet punched him in the side, but quickly realized that he had been stabbed.” The boy went to his house and his mother called 911. The cousin reported to deputies he saw Sweet stab the boy in the side. The document reported Sweet “attempted to apologize, put the knife back in his backpack and fled the scene on foot.” The victim was transported to Harborview Medical Center where he was treated for a stab wound and lacerated liver. He was reported to be in stable condition following surgery.

NEWS FROM ST. ELIZABETH Hospital honored for advancement in record keeping

St. Elizabeth Hospital in Enumclaw has earned Stage 7 certification for its electronic medical record and use of clinical information technology to support patient-care services. The award represents attainment of the highest level on the Electronic Medical Record Adoption Model, which is used to track EMR progress at hospitals and health systems.

The certification comes from Chicago-based Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society, which evaluates hospitals on their deployment of information technology to improve quality, safety, access and costeffectiveness of care. Stage 7 status means a facility is truly paperless and that clinical information can be readily shared via electronic transactions. Only 1.9 percent of the 5, 441 hospitals nationwide certified by HIMSS receive the Stage 7 designation. St.

Elizabeth is one of only two hospitals in Washington state to achieve this honor, is the only facility in South King County to earn Stage 7 is the only Franciscan Health System hospital to receive this certification. The hospital will be recognized at the 2014 HIMSS Annual Conference and Exhibition in February in Florida. “This achievement reflects our commitment to the meaningful use of stateof-the-art technology that makes our hospital the best place to heal, the best place

Marcia Lou Pittman, of Auburn, passed away peacefully, and unexpectedly, in her sleep on August 22, 2013 in Vancouver, B.C. She was among friends, doing what she loved to do, which was working with draft horse teams. Marcia was born in Medford, Oregon on August 18, 1953 to C.C. “Smokey” and Lou Ellen Pittman. Marcia worked for Northwest/Delta Airlines for nearly 38 years as a flight attendant before retiring in 2012 to pursue her hobbies. Well known and popular in the horse community on the plateau, she is survived by her brothers Ridge (Debora) of Enumclaw, WA and Drew of Boise, ID and nephew Ryder, also of Boise and many aunts, uncles and cousins in Oregon and Washington. A celebration of her life is being organized and donations in lieu of flowers will be announced.

to work and the best community health resource,” St. Elizabeth President Donna Russell-Cook said. “Reaching Stage 7 is an affirmation of all the hard work and the value of our partnership with MEDITECH and Inland Northwest Health Services,” said Shelly Pricco, associate vice president of patient care services. “For us, it’s not just about winning awards; it’s really about doing what’s best for our patients. That’s always been our overall goal.” The validation process to confirm a hospital has reached Stage 7 includes a site visit by an executive from HIMSS Analytics and former or current chief information officers and a current or former chief medical information officer. This year St. Elizabeth Hospital was also ranked among the 25 “Most Wired” small and rural community hospitals in the nation by Hospitals and Health Networks magazine. Aside from St. Elizabath, Franciscan Health System includes St. Joseph Medical Center, Tacoma; St. Francis Hospital, Federal Way; St. Clare Hospital, Lakewood; St. Anthony Hospital, Gig Harbor; Highline

Medical Center, Burien; and Franciscan Hospice House in University Place. Franciscan is part of Catholic Health Initiatives, a national nonprofit health system with headquarters in Englewood, Colo.

Advancement in mammography is on the way

Franciscan Health System has introduced 3D mammography as part of its comprehensive and advanced breast care services for women in South Puget Sound. The new technology, also known as digital breast tomosynthesis (or tomo), improves the early detection of breast cancer by up to 30 percent according to several studies and reduces the need for additional breast screenings. The 3D screening will become available this month at the Franciscan Medical Pavilion in Bonney Lake and is planned for St. Elizabeth Hospital in Enumclaw in 2014. Traditional 2D digital mammography continues to be the standard of care for breast screenings. The new 3D mammography technology combines with conventional 2D mam-

mography to provide an enhanced 3D image of the breast. “3D mammography will soon become the standard of care for women in Pierce and south King counties,” said Dr. Khai Tran, medical director at Carol Milgard Breast Center and Franciscan’s Women’s Health and Breast Center at St. Francis Hospital. “When a diagnosis is found with this advanced technology, Franciscan provides patients with a multi-disciplinary, patient-centered plan of care that’s close to home.” The screening experience for women will be similar to what they’ve experienced in the past. During the 3D part of the exam, an x-ray arm sweeps over the breast, taking multiple images in seconds. There’s no additional compression and the extra imaging takes only a few more seconds. “At Franciscan, we support the American Cancer Society’s recommendation that women 40 years and older should get a yearly screening mammogram and because we know that detecting cancer at an early stage saves lives,” said Kathy Bressler, executive leader for Franciscan Women’s and Children’s services.

The Pierce County Sheriff’s Department is looking for interested citizens to attend its fall Community Academy. The academy begins Sept. 26 and will meet each Thursday evening for 13 weeks. This is the first time a session will be held in a north central Pierce County location. Anyone may apply. However, this location will be most convenient for those living in central or north Pierce County, Edgewood, and Brown’s Point. The academy is an opportunity for participants to learn first-hand about law enforcement in Pierce County and to meet the sheriff and other department members. The

course seeks to familiarize the public with all aspects of the sheriff’s department and provides insight into the practices of law enforcement and the criminal justice system. The class covers topics such as the law, patrol procedures, use of force, detectives, narcotics, K-9, domestic violence, hiring and training, and more. Field trips are scheduled to the 911 communications center, Pierce County jail, sheriff’s headquarters, and the Range. Preregistration is required and applications are accepted on a first come first served basis until the class is filled. At this time there are 30 openings. Applicants must be at least 16 years old. Fingerprinting and a photo I.D. are required after preliminary acceptance to the program so sign up soon. You can register online or print and mail in the application. More information will be sent once your application is received.

CENTER FROM 1 The Welcome Center concept has been a drawnout affair, floating around City Hall in the planning stages for the past 13 years. Proposed has been a twostory structure – located between the Enumclaw Expo Center fieldhouse and the city-owned golf course – that would be home to the Forest Service and National Park Service, with a city presence as well. Initially, the Chamber of Commerce was a partner,

but the chamber dropped out a couple of years ago. The total cost is pegged at $3.5 million. Federal grants have been expected to pay the bulk of the cost, roughly $2.6 million. The city’s share is $319,000 with the Forest Service expected to pick up the rest of the tab. The federal money was allocated during the course of five years, with 20 percent doled out each year between 2005 and 2009. Now, the decision by the Forest Service has threatened to halt plans. The $750,000 maximum won’t pay for the entire

White River Foundation to host Oktoberfest fundraiser The White River Education Foundation will host its annual fundraising event, an Oktoberfest, the evening of Oct. 26. Festivities will take place beginning at 6 p.m. at High Cedars Golf Club in Orting. The cost is $50 per person and includes an authentic German dinner, both live and silent auctions and entertainment. Tickets are available at or by calling 253255-2835. The stated mission of the White River Education Foundation is “to steward resources that provide the youth of our community the opportunity to achieve educational excellence and reach their full potential.”

second floor as was initially planned, so plans are quickly being re-evaluated in efforts to slice the cost. I nt e r i m C it y Administrator Chris Searcy said meetings with architects are hastily being planned, with the goal to arrive at cost reductions that do not involve significant design changes. The biggest problem is that the federal money goes away if everything isn’t squared away and approved by Sept. 13. Members of the City Council will address the issue again during their Sept. 9 meeting.

Crab fishing limited Most areas of Puget Sound closed to recreational crab fishing at sunset on Labor Day (Sept. 2), with summer catch reports due by midnight Oct. 1. The only two areas of the Sound that remain open to crab fishing are marine areas 7-North and 7-South near the San Juan Islands. Sport fishers who crab in those two areas after Sept. 2 must record their catch on winter catch record cards. All sport fishers licensed to fish for Dungeness crab anywhere in Puget Sound have through Oct. 1 to submit summer catch reports to the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW). Crabbers who fail to file their catch reports on time will face a $10 fine

ARREST WARRANTS: An Enumclaw officer traveled to Seattle the afternoon of Aug. 27 to pick up a female who was wanted on Enumclaw arrest warrant. She was returned to the city police station for booking. Later in the day, two subjects with Auburn warrants were transported by Enumclaw police to meet with an Auburn officer. At 10:40 p.m., a subject wanted on an Enumclaw Municipal Court warrant was taken into custody by Sumner police; officers from the two cities met and the individual was turned over to Enumclaw and taken to the police station for booking. 911 CALLS: The King County Sheriff’s Office reported Aug. 27 the department had received numerous calls from a number that traced to a Watson Street address. City police checked around an apartment complex but could not locate the source of the calls. No issues were found. NO CONTACT: King County deputies attempted to transfer a female caller on 911 to city police the morning of Aug. 27. The caller said she had been assaulted. Officers were unable to locate anyone and several attempts to call the victim were unsuccessful. COPPER HEIST: An officer contacted a Garrett Street complainant the morning of Aug. 27 concerning the theft of copper wire. There were no immediate suspects. WARRANT ARREST: Officers responded at 8:47 a.m. Aug. 26 to a Chinook Avenue location after hearing of a man screaming and tearing off his clothing. The subject was gone when police arrived, but was later found on Cole Street. It was determined he had been involved in a verbal domestic dispute. He was wanted on an Enumclaw Municipal Court warrant and was arrested. NOTHING WRONG: An

employee at a Roosevelt Avenue business notified police the afternoon of Aug. 26 after a man said some “odd things” while in the store. The man departed but was contacted by police before getting too far. It was determined the incident could be the result of mental health issues. FLEEING VEHICLE: Enumclaw police were called upon at 7:46 a.m. Aug. 25 to assist Buckley

officers with a fleeing vehicle. The suspect vehicle traveled through Enumclaw but could not be located. City police then helped Buckley authorities gather evidence that had been tossed from the fleeing vehicle along Railroad Street between Stevenson and Initial avenues. Those items were turned over to Buckley police. BURGLAR ARRESTED: The

morning of Aug. 25 police arrested a man wanted for residential burglary and malicious mischief. He was read his Miranda rights, taken to the police station and booked. RESIDENTIAL BURGLARY: Police were informed Aug. 25 of a residential burglary that occurred sometime during the week prior. Taken were several rings and cameras.

Hi, my name is Kris and I’m a Type 2 diabetic. For many years I wasn’t very good about taking care of myself — before and after my diagnosis in March 2002. Then this horrible week happened in June 2012. And to cope with it, I started walking my dog five days a week. This time last year I was able to walk about three miles in about an hour. When I decided to start walking, my friend Ilyse, who is a breast cancer survivor, challenged me to walk the Torchlight Run. I didn’t think I would be ready for it as the event was a month out from that conversation. Instead, I walked the inaugural Kris Hill Bra Dash 5K, and she Maple Valleywalked with me. By Covington that point I decided Reporter I wanted to be a runner and when we walked at Lake Wilderness I told Ilyse I wanted her to run my first 5K with me, likely in December. Then I did something I never thought I would do in my life: I became a runner. Somewhere along the way on this journey I became an inspiration to others, particularly women, to start exercising. I don’t understand it. Honestly, I just started walking out of guilt and grief over the death of my first dog. I felt like I neglected her and our other dog. I started walking

Neighbors Night Out – a successful evening across the Plateau where we said hello to our neighbors. Some folks met for the first time. Children were able to visit with adults, adding to their comfort level living within a network of homes. Stories were traded and information shared. Some worked on emergency preparedness packets distributed last year. More gatherings registered for NNO this year and each of those were visited by first responders: Fire Districts 28 and 44, Enumclaw Police Department and King County Sheriffs. This year was highlighted by the county helicopter circling over a potluck gathering. Some events did not register, as one only needs a desire to enhance neighborhood spirit and create a safer and more compassionate community. LINCCK is grateful for those who hosted such events, to the individuals and families attending, and to the first responders. Thanks! Friendly smiles are on the rise and helpful hands are more readily available. It’s all good.

LAST WEEK: Is the hype for real? Will the Seattle Seahawks advance to the Super Bowl?

Annual Neighbors Night Out was again a success

Always on the first Tuesday of August, so plan ahead. Maybe next year you can host the gathering that’s been in your neighborhood or perhaps start a new NNO event. It can be just two neighbors sharing lemonade on the front porch or a big block party with the street closed – you choose. For next year, think flowers. LINCCK Civility-Compassion-Kindness

School district praised for doing things right I wish to acknowledge the work of the Enumclaw School District. As facilities and capital communications manager for Seattle Schools, I have lived in Enumclaw for 20 years. My two children graduated from Enumclaw High School and both are on the dean’s list at the University of Washington. I say this because Enumclaw has one of the finest allaround academic programs in the state. And key factors in providing quality education are 1) the voters passing Enumclaw school levies and 2) the stability and long-term retention of the district’s leadership and teaching staff. An example of the respect the state superintendents from all other districts have for Enumclaw is their recent election of Mike Nelson to

be their association president. The mark of a great community is, in part, a strong school system supported by its citizenry. Tom Redman Enumclaw

Family overwhelmed by community support Our family was overwhelmed by Enumclaw’s support at our Adoption Benefit Garage and Bake Sale. There were over 50 families who donated items for the garage sale, over 20 people who helped throughout the sale, 4 precious high school girls who volunteered their time to watch our kiddos and hundreds of generous people who came to the sale and bought items, pies, cinnamon rolls and other baked goods or just donated to the adoption. God truly is “able to do immeasurably more than what we could ever ask or imagine.” We are so thankful and can’t wait to tell our little one the amazing story of how much he or she is wanted not just by our family, but by our extended family, church family, friends, coworkers and community. Thanks for being part of our journey and for helping us bring our “Little One”home. Andy and Eva Means Enumclaw

What part did politics play in the creation of Mount Rainier National Park? To answer this question I used information from the book, “Mount Rainier Wonderland: An Administrative History of Mount Rainier National Park.” “Diverse interest groups successfully combined their efforts in the campaign for Mount Rainier National Park. These groups included scientific organizations and mountain clubs, university faculties and chambers of commerce, people of national stature and local newspaper editors.” Key political and economic beliefs and interests also helped bring the park into existence. These aspects will be the focus of this week’s column. It is an axiom that the longer a bill takes to attain passage through Congress, the more political opposition there will be.

law required six difficult years in Congress from 1893 to 1898 and, with each passing year, more qualifications and amendments were added before the final document was placed on the president’s desk. As originally drawn, the concept of the “worthless land” argument played a big part: “The boundaries of the proposed national park have been so drawn as to exclude from its area all lands upon which coal, gold, or other valuable minerals are supposed to occur, and they conform to the purpose that the park shall include all fea-

tures of peculiar scenic beauty without encroaching on the interests of miners or settlers.” Because of this argument, the size of the park was reduced from 24 miles by 26 miles to its eventual size of approximately 18 miles by 18 miles. The Northern Pacific Railroad also played a major, though covert, part in the park’s creation. Land grants given to NP within the park’s boundaries were cancelled. In return for this concession, NP would be able to acquire an equal amount of timberland elsewhere, that area being in Oregon. This was the tribute preservationists had to pay in order for the Northern Pacific to support the bill. This final wording of the law, though hotly denied by NP, demonstrates its influence. The NP would also benefit from the creation of Mount Rainier

To some degree, this is probably why he came back here to film his motion picture. It’s called “The Claw” and Hessler is the writer, director and one of the producers. It’s billed as a tense and exciting movie, built around a love triangle and plenty of action that climaxes with a first-class fight scene. To finance the project, Hessler turned to Kickstarter – an Internet coalition with resources in excess of $700 million, fueled by people who make pledges and grants to various artistic works. Pledge $25 to “The Claw” and, when it’s completed, Hessler will give you a DVD. Pledge $150 and he’ll used you in the movie (as an extra, of course.) Google Hessler and you’ll find a little “travelogue” of businesses and sites where he’s filmed around town. For instance, the Lee Hotel, Pennies From Heaven, Enumclaw Tires and the Green River

Some Congressmen objected to the creation of national parks because, once created, they would become an economic burden to the federal government. A Texas representative thought the state of Washington ought to pay for the expense of the park. Adding pressure to this attitude was the powerful Speaker of the House, “Uncle Joe” Canon, who made a final demand: he said he would kill the bill unless no money was requested after passage, “to improve the place and make it possible to bring visitors to go there.” He exacted this promise from Seattle businessman John P. Hartman, influential in the bill’s support, before he gave his approval: “I promise you, Sir, that if this Bill is passed I will not be here asking for money from the federal

ELFERS FROM 6 National Park because millions of tourists who would visit it would ride on NP’s trains. Additionally, the creation of a national park required an act of Congress, while the creation of a national forest only required, “a stroke of the president’s pen” to turn it into law. Very clearly, economic pragmatism separated national parks from national forests. National forests would be treated as crops while national parks would be viewed as wilderness preserves. Mount Rainier National Park also created and protected a regional watershed, which especially benefitted the two major cities of Seattle and Tacoma. The within-two-hour proximity of Mount Rainier to these two cities would also benefit these cities economically as tourists traveled through them to visit the park.

National Park and firmly imbedded the two approaches to federal lands: preserves or national forests open to harvest and development. It also set the example for later parks like Crater Lake (1902), Wind Cave (1903) and Mesa Verde (1906). Bills take a tortuous and time-consuming route to get through Congress. Compromises have to be made and various interests groups paid off. Perhaps the recent successful push to end pork barrel legislation is not such a good idea after all. Perhaps part of the reason for our gridlocked Congress stems from the end of these entitlements – the grease that lubricates the system?

treasury to operate the place so long as you shall remain in Congress.” With that pledge, Speaker Canon said, “I will take you at your word and let the measure go through, if otherwise it can travel the thorny road.” To mollify angry settlers, Washington Congressman James Hamilton Lewis gave them the same rights as the Northern Pacific – to be able to settle elsewhere on federal lands “in lieu of their lands in the park.” Finally, the name of the park was changed from “the politically sensitive but dull Washington National Park” to Mount Rainier National Park in a late final amendment. President McKinley signed the bill into law on March 2,1899. Mount Rainier National Park had followed the precedent set by Yellowstone

Gorge. In many cases, he’s using local, unknown and untested actors and actresses. As I walked out of the Lee Lounge a few weeks ago I found Hessler and some actors filming a scene in the coffee shop. I didn’t talk to any of them. In fact, I didn’t hang around to find out exactly what they were doing; that is, given the lights and camera, I realized they were filming something, but I never dreamed they were making a movie. Hessler will probably finish “The Claw” sometime next year. And, if you can imagine such a thing, he plans to hold the world premier in the Chalet Theater. Anyway, after he finishes all that, he might find himself floundering about wondering what project to tackle next. If so, I’d encourage him to call me. I’ve written a couple screenplays that will knock his socks off.

My doctor switched up my medications and told me to test my blood sugar regularly then adapt my dosages accordingly. I didn’t do that. I just went off the medication she wanted me to stop taking and just took the new one she gave me in July. Then I went back to the doctor in early October and everything looked good until the labs came back. My A1c, which is a measure of

the average number of my blood sugar levels, was 8.8 percent. That was bad. Very, very bad — and I was upset. Somehow, that didn’t derail me. I was four months into a series of better habits and lifestyle changes. I kept going. This time, though, I started tracking my blood sugar levels. I got my numbers under control within a week and at that point I was a few weeks into the Couch to 5K running plan, which lasts nine weeks. It’s worth noting that I get up and work out first thing in the morn-

weaned myself down to one small can of Coke Zero on weekends after my run on Saturday. A hectic weekend in mid-March led me to drink too much diet soda and it took me an entire week to recover. As I get deeper into this running journey I have also started eating more organic foods. I don’t like every organic food I eat and doing an all-organic diet is challenging but I figure the fewer chemicals I put into my body the better. At my last appointment with my doctor in early June I was down 46 pounds from my highest weight at the end of my pregnancy. I had just run my sixth 5K a few days earlier. I was eating four or five small meals a day. At that point I lost eight inches off my chest, 13 inches off my waist and another eight inches off my hips. My A1c was 5.9 percent. When I met with Pam Kramer, a registered dietician and diabetes educator at MultiCare, a few weeks ago to talk about the Summers End Fun Run I caught her up on all I accomplished since October.

I want to be healthy. But I do want everyone to know, whether they are a type 2 diabetic like I am or not, they can get healthy. In the years since I was diagnosed I always wondered how other type 2 diabetics were able to manage their health through diet and exercise. I thought I was just going to always take medications and always be heavy. Then I started walking which led to running which led to this domino effect of change. Never again will I be the diabetic who doesn’t take care of herself. I may have weak moments or tough days, but, all those collective bad habits are gone.

The extra weight kept coming off, fat was replaced with muscle. I ran my first 5K Dec. 9. I decided to run five more by the end of June. In January, I saw my doctor again. My A1c was a beautiful 6 percent. I lost eight more pounds, inching my total fat loss to 38 pounds, I think. I kept running. I felt better all the time. I discovered that on days I ran I could eat a little bit more carbs and take a little bit less medication. I ran three days a week, so nine to 10 miles total, then in late December added a cross training workout so I was back to four days a week of exercise. During the next few months I started cutting out other things. I quit drinking diet Snapple iced tea. I quit drinking Vitamin Water Zero.

Exit religious, Dan Wilson enter spiritual. Hope Lutheran Church The third event, the Protestant human sexuality conflicts. Regardless of where one stood on the sexuality issue, what people outside the churches saw, sadly, was Christians at maybe their worst; not being very Christian toward each other and those whose sexual orientation was not heterosexual.

Exit, particularly in young people, religious, and enter spiritual. Bass describes more issues like Hurricane Katrina, where conservative Christian leaders called the destruction “God’s punishment” and the outcome was the same. Exit religious, enter spiritual.

As the calendar turns, here we are… What? September already? Wait, wait. My summer want-to-do list is still in the drawer. Not a good sign as the days begin to shorten. I hope you have had a summer filled with the spirit of creation that abounds here in the Pacific Northwest. People in the Northwest have been blessed by good weather this summer, and, not to start an argument, I think we are blessed to live in one of the most beautiful places in creation. Small wonder then that many people in the Pacific Northwest find the expression of their spirituality through God in creation and claim to be “spiritual but not religious.” Diana Butler Bass in her book “Christianity After Religion” points to several happenings in the past decade. She calls it the “Horrible Decade” that brought about a significant shift in religious expression away from religious and toward spiritual. The first event, 9/11. Immediately after the terrorist attack, churches were full. But then well-known Christian fundamentalist leaders came out strongly saying that 9/11 was God’s punishment for America’s lack of moral value. So that was it, huh? God’s punishment was to fly airplanes into buildings killing innocent children and adults. Exit religious, enter spiritual. The second event, the Roman Catholic (and yes, other

Mom driven to get teen behind the wheel I’ve been bugging my almost 16-year-old daughter to get to practicing her driving. I put her in driver’s ed when she turned 15 on purpose. When I had forced my older daughter at 17 to finally take driver’s ed, I was sitting in on one of the classes (as required) and they were talking about how a 15-year-old could get a waiver for their permit if they were signed up for a driver’s ed class. They also said it’s good for younger kids to have that full year of driving. At the time, my youngest was chomping at the bit to drive. She was constantly bugging my husband and me to let her drive at 14. We always told her no, but she kept at us. I thought, “Great! I have one daughter who wants to voluntarily drive.” When she turned 15, I signed her up. Now I’ll digress a bit here. There is a new generation of kids who just don’t want to drive. I don’t know if we’ve spoiled them, but when my oldest was

So I was Seattle with her sister and pretty thrilled my youngest driving partner in October. They would drive on wanted to drive. Saturday and then again on Fast forward a year. My Sunday with no practice in oldest is indeed driving, but between. While this may my youngest, after her year of opportunity to drive has have been fine and dandy maybe logged three hours for an almost 18-year old, in the car outside of her it was traumatic for my driver’s ed instruction. I just 15-year-old who had can count on one hand how only driven a couple times many times she’s been out before the instruction driving and I wouldn’t use started.

hard day’s work and not even think about it. I have a lot of other things going on in my head and I wouldn’t think about until it was too late. I had been banished from driving practice. When I would drive with my youngest, using my stern, no-nonsense, instructional voice, she would cry, “Quit yelling at me!” Then we would start yelling at each other over whether I had been yelling at her. I washed my hands of it and handed the task over to her father who is much calmer with his passive-aggressive ways. But now that we are coming up on her 16th birthday, I informed her that if she doesn’t practice and her permit has to be renewed, I wouldn’t be paying for it. She agreed with my reasoning. It’s one thing if she’s been practicing and doesn’t feel ready. It’s another if she’s not ready because she hasn’t been practicing. OK, what it comes down to is I’m angry. So I took charge. She wanted to go to the movies with a friend last weekend. I told her I’d take them if she drove to her friend’s

house, but she had to understand I’m not going to be warm and fuzzy while my 15-year-old is driving me around town. She’d have to find another way to deal with her perception of my voice. I braced myself as I climbed in the car with her. I directed her to down the road and towards her friend’s house. She exclaims, “I think I like driving with you instead of dad!” “Why?” “Because you tell me where to go and Dad just says, “I guess, if you want, maybe you could turn here.” “Well, we are actually going somewhere, not just randomly driving around for instruction.” “Still, I like to be told where to turn. I can’t make those kinds of decisions when I’m concentrating on driving.” I get that. When questioned, Dad told me they should be able to make those decisions when they are just driving around. I told him, they don’t even know what city they are in when they are so focused on maneuvering the car. Driving may have come naturally to my husband, but it hasn’t to his daughters and come to think of it, it didn’t come naturally to me either.

They do start making decisions after they are comfortable with the car. My oldest, after driving on her own for seven months, is finally going out and finding places on her own; following directions, getting lost, redirecting herself. Now I am the designated driving instructor. We drove to the high school the other day, drove almost home, decided to go to Costco, drove to Costco, drove home. Today we have to go do a scavenger hunt-type project with her friends. She’ll drive to the first friend’s house at least. I’ll take over from there so they can discuss their project. She’s a really good driver for as little time as she’s been in the car. I have to admit, even though I was bummed when she re-delegated the driving instruction back to me, feeling like I’m always the one to take care of things as it is, I’ve been having fun. She’s a talker like me and we’ve begun to solve the world’s problems as we know them while we are driving. I said to her, “I don’t know if you changed or I changed, but this is a lot of fun now.” She said, “Oh, it’s me, I’ve changed a lot.” But really, I think we’ve both grown up in this past year.

File photos Other special features for the “Battle of the Bridge” include: • a 5:30 p.m. parade over Buckley’s Main Street – beginning at River Avenue – by the White River cheer squad, band and fully-uniformed football team, escorted by the Buckley Police Department; • a moment of silence prior to the game honoring the late Joe Kolisch, a White River graduate, former Enumclaw fire chief and longtime trainer for White River athletics; and • presentation of the colors by the Buckley Fire Department color guard. For those wanting to avoid the sometimes-difficult parking situation around Sheets Field, a free shuttle will operate between downtown Buckley and White River High. The shuttle will begin making trips at 5:15 p.m., picking up passengers in front of the school. The return trip is slated for 30 minutes following the game.

Special plans for Sheets game Opening night of the prep football season will indeed by special, with the Hornet-Hornet battle taking place on venerable Sheets Field in downtown Buckley. It will be just the second time White River has hosted a game on the Sheets sod since the opening of the “new” White River High in the fall of 2003. Last season, the Hornets defeated Highline High 41-22 on the natural grass surface that hosted home football games for generations. This year’s clash of Plateau rivals kicks off at 7 p.m. Friday. To allow the anticipated crowd to get settled in plenty of time, three ticket windows will operate and the gates will open at 5.


The sights and sounds of Enumclaw High football are back at the Pete’s Pool field as the Hornets prepare for the beginning of the 2013 season. Enumclaw kicks off the campaign Friday at Sheets Field in Buckley against the White River Hornets in the annual Battle of the Bridge game. At stake is the traveling trophy, which the Enumclaw boys will be trying to keep following last year’s 22-13 victory at Pete’s. EHS coach Mark Gunderson is beginning his second year on the sideline leading the Hornets and expects a successful year. Gunderson said the team is deep in returning veterans and seniors who worked hard during the offseason in the weight room. “We have depth across the board,” Gunderson said. “We have a lot thing going for us this year. We expect to bring back the pride and tradition of Enumclaw football.” Taking snaps will be senior quarterback Peter Nordby, who will also be playing free safety on defense. Nordby will be working from the power-I offense. Running out the backfield will be seniors Mauricio Portillo and Cameron Strecker. Strecker will also be playing safety and Portillo will play middle linebacker on defense. Also at the running back position is Evan McCrillis, a senior who will be playing outside linebacker. Sam Fisher will play both offensive and defense on the line. Chandler Steuli will also be anchoring the line. Gunderson said an added strength for the team this year is offensive coordinator Jason Patterson, a former Enumclaw and Central Washington University player. The coach said the most important aspect of working the sidelines is, “the impact you have on kids. That is why you get into this. The influence you have on someone’s life in a positive way.”

Long list of returning talent at WR By Kevin Hanson Senior Writer

As the days draw near to the season-opening kickoff, White River High coach Joe Sprouse can’t help but be excited.

Nearly all the statistical leaders have returned from a season ago, there’s a wealth of experience on both sides of the ball and, overall, the squad has not been stung too badly by the injury bug. In short,

the fourth-year coach is expecting good things this fall. Sprouse is quick to correct those who note the Hornets are looking to bounce back from a down year. Last fall’s team went

3-4 in league and 4-6 overall, missing the South Puget Sound League 2A playoffs a season after capturing the league title. Sprouse reminds that injuries plagued at least six key contributors last season and, despite that, the team was just a play or two away from a postseason appearance. He likes what he’s seen during early-season practices. A real bonus, Sprouse said, is the fact that everyone is comfortable with the offense, now that it’s been in place three full seasons. When the Hornets line up for Friday’s 7 p.m. season opener against Enumclaw, there will be a new face at quarterback. Senior Sean Hayes has moved from a receiving slot and – standing 6-foot-3 and weighing in at 190 pounds – he gives White River a heady presence at the controls. “He’s got a high football IQ,” Sprouse said. “He’s going to surprise a lot of people.” What won’t surprise anyone is the Hornets’ runfirst mentality. Sprouse figures the ball will be carried on at least 60 percent of White River’s offensive plays. Getting most of the

work will be senior Keenan Fagan, with fellow backfield returnee Tristan Knaus also in the mix. Much of the offensive success will be on Fagan’s shoulders, as Sprouse intends to get him the ball at least 25 times a game. When Hayes puts the ball in the air, a primary target should be junior Dustin France, who led the team in receiving a season ago. Making things work up front is an offensive line that boasts both experience and size. The group will average better than 220 pounds across the front and, of huge importance, all are healthy. Defensively, the strength is straight up the middle, Sprouse said, highlighting a trio of Trevor Shoon at nose guard, Austin Ross at middle linebacker and Fagan at safety. Shoon led the Hornets last year in tackles for loss. With his size and athleticism, Hayes will anchor one defensive end position, where he’ll look to repeat as the squad’s sack leader. The kicking game appears in good hands, as France was an all-league selection a year ago.

Enjoy the magic of fall before the first frost hits

The “ber” months begin as autumn ushers in the cold, but here in western Washington we still have a month of warm weather to enjoy. This is the time to get serious about deadheading, cutting back and watering well if you want to enjoy summer flowers until the first hard frost. Don’t fret if your hanging baskets, container gardens or blooming beds are looking sunburned and summer worn. September begins the show of “Fall Magic” and this is the month when local nurs-

of autumn glory is as easy as pulling a rabbit foot’s fern out of hat. Here are three quick changes you can make now: – Yank out Marianne Binetti the tallest Columnist plant in your potted flowering container and replace eries renew their stock for a it with the colorful stems fresh season of flowers. September is also the and leaves of “Rainbow month to take a critical Delight” Swiss chard.

The Compleat Home Gardener



An old wagon or wheelbarrow is ideal. Hide the plastic pots with pumpkins and gourds or even colorful fallen leaves. Now you have an autumn display that celebrates the change in seasons. Tip: Check daily to make sure the potted mums have moist soil and buy mum plants with plenty of buds for a long bloom season. – Beautify your borders with heucheras. These leafy perennial plants are heaven sent for the gardener that wants both fall and winter color. Grouping peach, orange and burgundy heucheras into color families near walkways and into container gardens is a quick way to cast a warm autumn glow to the landscape. Add some spikes of ornamental grasses, the rich tones of purple and blue asters and fill in with some low-growing winter pansies. The fresh color and new buds is sure to spike a bout of spring fever – even in September.


Drama without the drinking – landscaping for low water bills

Does your landscape drink too much? September is a good month to have an intervention and forcibly remove any landscape plants that need constant water. Adding organic matter to the soil and covering roots with a blanket of mulch will help conserve water around many shrubs but another choice is to plant the drought-resistant

couples below for a beautiful plant marriage – with no drinking problems.

For full sun: Royal purple smoke tree and golden nugget barberry

These two thrive even in rocky or sandy soil. You’ll enjoy great fall and spring color from the contrast in foliage. Surround the taller smoke tree with three to five dwarf barberry plants. You can also find Golden Spirit smoke trees with glistening gold leaves and use dark purple barberry plants for a color contrast in the same bed. Neither of these plants drink too much or demand extra attention. That’s what I call a marriage of convenience.

For dry shade: Goldstrike Aucuba and Japanese Anemones

The tall, delicate blooms of autumn-blooming Japanese anemones come in shades of white, pink and purple and these perennial plants come back year after year even if grown in the dry shade of cedar and fir trees. Just don’t plant this garden tramp in fertile soil or she will spread quickly and invade other beds. Aucuba is a well-behaved evergreen shrub with large shiny leaves that will thrive in even the darkest shade. Gold spots on the variety Mr. Goldstrike light up any dark corner, but Aucuba is especially valuable near a dark entry where a house can provide protection from winter winds.

THANK YOU On Aug. 9, the Enumclaw Men’s Club held its first annual Glow Ball Tournament to raise funds for improvements to the clubhouse. I would like to thank everyone who participated. It was a great success! I would also like to thank all the businesses that contributed to the event. Their donations were greatly appreciated. Thank you: Buds and Blooms (Ace Christenson), Four Seasons, Fugate Ford, Gateway True Value, The Rainier, Howells Chiropractic, Lee Restaurant, Les Schwab, The Mint, Napa Auto Parts,

For part sun/shade: Japanese maples and winter creeper euonymus

Add plenty of organic matter to the soil at planting time and the spectacular Japanese maple will thrive on rainfall alone – but like all newly planted trees and shrubs you will need to keep the soil moist until the roots are established. The low-growing, evergreen euonymus like Emerald Gaiety or the golden Emerald and Gold euonymus adds sweeps of year-long, weed-blocking color. Japanese maples have great figures, come in many shades and leaf sizes and love our winter wet climate. This is the best time of year to add a Japanese maple to the landscape. • • • 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.

School Board News Superintendent Open House Battle of the Bridge PBIS

School Board News School board meetings are open to the public and we encourage anyone to join us. At the August meeting, the board reviewed and approved the 2013-14 White River School District budget. They were also very pleased to award diplomas to three graduates of the White River High School class of 2013 who completed their requirements over the summer. At their next meeting on September 11, the board plans to swear in a new member of the board and will hear the results of MSP and HSPE testing from last spring.


Superintendent of White River School District

As the superintendent of the White River School District, I think of the mission of ensuring high levels of learning for all students as fulfilling a sacred promise. Each morning parents literally hand over their children to us. In my experience, parents expect three things in return: 1) they want their children to be safe and secure while in our care; 2) they want them to feel special; and 3) they want them to learn—not simply to “be taught,” but to learn! We have the highest obligation to fulfill this promise, and everything we do in schools—every decision, every policy, every practice—should reflect this. What we do sends a much more significant message than what we say. As the White River School District sets out on a journey to ensure high levels of learning for all students, we must examine every practice, by asking, “Is this consistent with our core purpose of ensuring high levels of learning?” In this edition we wanted to share a portion of our work surrounding that sacred promise – The work of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS). PBIS is a prevention framework for a school wide behavioral support system that provides students the level of support they need, when they need it. It includes all students at all times in all environments. It is NOT a specific program or curriculum, but a way of doing things that is positive, proactive and responsive. My commitment to doing the PBIS work is heightened by the fact that I have completed my first year as your superintendent. I cannot overstate how much I appreciate and honor the trust the White River community placed in me. I am extremely proud of our administrators and staff. Each and every one of our students is important to me, and I deeply appreciate our parents who entrust us with their children each day. We will work towards fulfilling that sacred promise to you.

Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports (PBIS) What is Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports?

PBIS is an example of a multi-tiered intervention system that uses a broad range of systemic and individualized strategies for achieving important social and learning outcomes while preventing problem behaviors from occuring. At the first tier, students learn three to five positive school-wide expectations that apply to everyone (see the example from Wilkeson). Students are explicitly taught these expectations and how they apply throughout the school (see Elk Ridge Matrix). They are the cornerstone for creating and maintaining a positive school climate and culture. Students are taught what to do, not given a long list of rules telling them what NOT to do. When students are meeting these expectations their effort is recognized and acknowledged to positively reinforce that behavior. When students are not meeting the expectations they are reminded and, if necessary, retaught. For most students, (80-90%) no further intervention is needed.

PBIS is an evidence-based, data-driven framework proven to reduce disciplinary incidents. PBIS increases a school’s sense of safety and supports improved academic outcomes. More than 19,000 U.S. schools are implementing PBIS and saving countless instructional hours otherwise lost to discipline. PBIS is focused on continual teaching and learning. PBIS is positive using acknowledgement and recognition of good behavior to reduce unnecessary discipline and promote a climate of greater productivity, safety and learning. PBIS schools apply a multi-tiered approach to prevention and provides the level of support each student needs. PBIS uses disciplinary data and principles of behavior analysis to develop school-wide, targeted and individualized interventions. PBIS improves school cimate for all students and staff. PBIS SUPPORTS MORE STUDENTS LEARNING MORE!


Check In/Check Out Program

But what about the other 10%-20% for whom the Tier 1 supports was not enough? It is here where the difference between PBIS and traditional forms of maintaining school discipline become apparent. In a traditional model, behavioral errors might lead to punishment. But in PBIS, it is first assumed that the student made an error that can be corrected. Like an error when a student is learning to do math we do not punish…we reteach. There is still a consequence, but it is a positive consequence based on respect for the individual. And, just like with academics, different individuals need different levels of support. For some a single reminder is sufficient. For some a daily check in/check out with an adult is needed to help them learn how to meet the expectations. This practice represents a Tier 2 level of intervention and support. Then, for a very small percentage of students, each task is broken down to its simplest parts, and each part is retaught and practiced. This highly individualized planning and support represents a Tier 3 intervention. The students are still expected to meet the school wide expectations just like any other student, but they are going to be provided the intensity of support they need to get there.

Check in/Check Out is a school based program designed to provide systematic and frequent reinforcement and encouragement for positive behaviors so that the student receives high rates of immediate feedback. With “Check In/Check Out” students are presented with daily/ weekly goals and then receive frequent feedback on meeting the goals throughout the day. The feedback system is connected to the school wide expectations.

• • • • •

Basic Features of the Check In/ Check Out program include:

Students are identified and receiving support quickly (within a week) Check-in and check-out daily with an adult at the school Regular feedback and reinforcement from teachers Family component Daily performance data used to evaluate progress and adjust plan


In Every aspect of education, data driven decision making is critical. When faced with an issue we cannot guess and hope. We need to use data to identify causes and provide interventions and supports to immediately and accurarely address the problem. For PBIS, all schools in the White River School District have implemented the School Wide Information System (SWIS). This data system allows building teams to track office discipline referrals and use that data to gather information aobut who, where, when and why behavioral errors are occuring and then determine the best way to address the issue.

The Hornet Way At White River High School, we believe that students should be recognized for their positive contributions to our school and community. We ask students to reflect The Hornet Way regularly in their daily lives by showing Pride, Appreciation and Acceptance in everything they do. WRHS staff and students can recognize each other for displaying these attributes by filling out a Hornet Gram. Students will be recognized on a monthly basis for showing The Hornet Way. 863651
