University center could fill the gap

City Council votes to meet twice a month

Covington leaders want to bring higher education opportunities to the city and are learning about the best way to do so. A group of city staff and representatives from local technical and community colleges visited the University Center of North Puget Sound Sept. 5. Started more than a decade ago, the University Center partners with eight public and private COVINGTON universities to offer programs in an area which was previously underserved. Gretchen Rowe, associate dean of University Center, provided the visitors from southeast King County with a wealth of information about the institution followed by a question and answer session

The Maple Valley City Council voted Monday night to reduce the number of required monthly meetings from three to two by eliminating the regular study session. The council vote was split four to three with Mayor Bill Allison, Sean Kelly, Noel Gerken and Erin Weaver voting in favor of the change and Deputy Mayor Victoria Jonas, Linda MAPLE Johnson and VALLEY Layne Barnes voting against. The idea of reducing the number of council meetings from three a month to two a month was raised in June at the City Council retreat. A public hearing was held on the matter Aug. 5 when residents spoke against the idea, citing concerns

Vine Maple Place works to help families sooner BY KRIS HILL khill@maplevalleyreporter.com

Vine Maple Place has helped single parents transition from homelessness to stability for more than a decade but staff of the Maple Valley-based nonprofit wants to do more. Kathi Ridge, manager of development for VMP, explained they wanted to do more as a response to the growing need in the com-

munity. “What we really wanted to come up with was a way to make a bigger impact on family homelessness in the community,” Ridge said. It takes a long time to bring a family out of homelessness, it takes a lot of money and it takes a lot of effort.” This came as a result of discussions in meetings to strategize about the organization’s future. There was revenue in reserve and

the idea was to come up with the best way to use the money in the long term. About two years ago, Ridge said, a few of the staff met with the board of directors, then separately with pastors in the community — since its inception Vine Maple Place was supported by an alliance of area churches — and then with the nonprofits employees. Each group independent of one another came up with the same idea: catch a family in a safety net before they become homeless. “Then we’re not limited by brick and mortar (housing availability),” [ more FAMILIES page 7 ]

Citizens’ committee would oversee Tahoma bond If the Tahoma construction bond passes the district would form a citizen’s oversight committee similar to the Tahoma 2000 committee BY KATHERINE SMITH ksmith@maplevalleyreporter.com

The Tahoma School District will facilitate a citizens’ bond oversight committee to oversee the implementation of the construction bond measure projects, including construction of a new Tahoma High School, should the bond measure pass in November. The bond, with a price tag of $195 million, calls for the construction of a new Tahoma High School, and other projects associated with realigning other schools in the district like renovating Lake Wilderness Elementary School and converting classrooms to make them grade level appropriate, as well as projects

to make all the district’s schools warm, safe, and dry for students. District officials predict that the construction and realignment projects would solve the district’s overcrowding problems and would allow the district to eliminate all portable classrooms. The district initiated a similar citizens’ bond oversight committee, which became known as the Tahoma 2000 committee, after passing the 1997 bond measure of $45 million that renovated and expanded the current high school and paid for Tahoma Junior High to be built, among others. In a press release published by the district

dated Sept. 6, 1996 it was charged with conducting estimated that the bond an ongoing review of how projects would funds were spent meet the district’s “The primary and met on a focus of the needs through regular basis until 2005 when stumission was to do the final projects dent enrollment whatever we could were completed was expected to in 2005. as an oversight reach 6,745. “It was kind of committee in Actual enroll- having the bond a macro view,� ment in 2005 was issue come in at Habenicht said in 6,730 and as of a phone interview. budget or under Oct. 1, 2012 dis- budget, to keep “The primary fotrict enrollment the public informed cus of the mission was up to 7,570. was to do whatas to what was The Tahoma ever we could going on, and to 2000 committee as an oversight maintain a cogent was chaired by committee in havset of minutes.� longtime Maple ing the bond issue Gary Habenicht Valley resident come in at budget Gary Habenicht or under budget, and was made to keep the public up of 22 other community informed as to what was members. going on, and to maintain a The committee was cogent set of minutes.�

Habenicht added that the committee was also involved in interviewing and hiring project managers and throughout the process committee members would visit the project sites and meet with the project managers to make sure they understood what was going on and why. Initially, Habenicht said, the committee met every two weeks, then met once a month with additional meetings as needed. “When it was all said and done the total package came in under budget even though it took longer to accomplish,� Habenicht said. Habenicht said that he felt that the committee was very effective and accomplished it’s goals of devel-

For new principal, Kentwood’s reputation stands out BY KATHERINE SMITH

ksmith@covingtonreporter.com

RELAY FOR LIFE COMMITTEE MEETING TO BE HELD Relay for Life of Black Diamond, Covington, and Maple Valley will be having a committee meeting on Monday, Sept. 16, at 6 p.m. Come meet the new planning committee, learn about open positions, and how you can volunteer. The event will include pizza, salad and beverages. Stop by and say hello and see what’s in store for the coming year. The new meeting location is the Maple Valley Fire Station 81 in the training room located at 22225 SE 231st Street in Maple Valley.

Kentwood High School’s reputation for academic and athletic excellence attracted new principal John Kniseley to the school. Kniseley, who grew up in Southern California before moving to Washington state with his family when he was in sixth grade, is a retired Navy officer who has worked in education in both Washington and California, most recently at Hazen High School. “My dad was my high school principal, so I kind of had a background in education,” Kniseley said. A graduate of South Whidbey High School, Kniseley attended the University of Southern California where he studied engineering and history and participated in the Navy’s ROTC program. After graduating he served as a naval officer on a minesweeper based out of Tacoma and served two tours of duty in the Persian Gulf. Upon completing his years of active duty service he served in the reserves for 22 years before retiring in 2009.

turned to Washington state and worked in Vancouver before taking the position of principal at Hazen High School. “Hazen was a great place, people do a lot of great things there, but I just wanted to be able to take my leadership style and take it to a bigger school and a larger administration team,” Kniseley said. He described his leadership style as one focused on empowerment and sharing decision making. “I just believe that, in that book “Good to Great,” they talk about putting the right people on the bus in the right seats, and I think that’s definitely how I do things,” Kniseley said. “I think some things, that’s not my passion or greatest strength, so if I can go find people that have those passions and have those strengths and put them in front of the staff, or get the staff involved in their own professional development — or whatever the topic may be — if I can get staff in front of other staff, colleagues leading colleagues, you just get more buy in by everybody.” This year, Kniseley said,

he plans to focus on the new teacher and principal evaluation program that is changing how educators are evaluated in the classroom and in the school and he will also focus on aligning curriculum. “We’re focusing on… having a common academic language across the whole school so we can all talk the same talk,” Kniseley said. Kniseley said he’s excited to get to know students, staff and the community and is looking forward to the school year. “Our whole administrative staff turned over except for Shaun Martin, so we’re all new here and we all come from different places and have different lenses from where we’ve been, so I think that’s exciting,” Kniseley said.

OQ U O T E O F T H E W E E K : I would not waste the springtime of my youth in idle dalliance; I would plant rich seeds to blossom in my manhood and bear fruit when I am old. Richard Hillhouse

Featuring the voices of teens

Kris Hill Assistant Editor

There are so many amazing young people in our communities and I am so excited I get to introduce a few more soon. It seems like the word is out that we love running contributed work from students. Just in the past week I spoke with two different Tahoma students who want to provide content for the paper on a regular basis. And this week, we have the work of two other teens who were in the integrated academy programs last school year at Tahoma High. Both won awards for writing for Global Academy or Outdoor Academy. Students in both classes formed groups and produced zines. They developed themes. They pitched them to their classmates and sought submissions, primarily written work, then took the submissions, edited them and posted them. There were zines about travel, zombies and sports, to name a few. In February I spent time with both groups of students. English teachers Matt Tucker and Jamie Vollrath — who left Tahoma over the summer unfortunately — asked me to come and speak to the kids about our planning and design process at the newspaper. I put together a presentation on Prezi and went through it on two different days, Feb. 14 and Feb. 15. It was a blast. I was also pretty impressed with what the kids were doing, the questions they asked after I was done with my talk as well as the follow-up emails I got. If you didn’t know this about me, one of my favorite parts of the job is when I get to hang out with high school kids. Nothing about that feels like work. I also love it when youth in the area approach me to submit their writing on their own. For some time Morgan Roberts of Maple Valley wrote about her experience with the Seattle Opera. Many readers love our youngest columnist, Annie Livengood, a Covington resident who is now a seventh grader at Mattson Middle School. Soon we will have work from two other students and I am so excited about both of them. A few weeks ago a young man named Alex emailed me to ask about contributing to the pa-

What is the reality of “save our town” To the editor, The candidate for mayor in Black Diamond, Dave Gordon, said that “now is not the time for the Yarrow Bay developments to occur.” The slogan for his campaign is “Save Our Town.” If Dave Gordon is attempting to save the city from growth, what is the sense and reality of that goal? Earlier this year, as the city council studied the

Maple Valley-Renton area from Tampa, Florida. The community I came from is bigger and a lot less friendly. I was frequently bullied and did not feel proud of my school or community. When I moved here, it was clear that Maple Valley was very different from what I was used to. I quickly grew a strong school spirit and felt welcome in my new town.” Casper added that while she was recently researching camera gear, she was encouraged to contact a local newspaper to submit photographs to, and she contacted our publisher who forwarded the email to me. She said she wants to send photos and short articles regularly about what’s going on at Tahoma Junior High. I love this because I think this is a school where we do have a gap in coverage. We focus quite a bit on the high school. So, her voice and images will be a wonderful contribution to the conversation in this newspaper. I feel like we’re doing something right when young people in our communities feel comfortable asking if their contributions are welcome in the pages of this newspaper. I’m proud of that. And I hope it continues.

per. We set up a meeting and I had no idea what to expect when he walked into the office. Alek Link is a junior at Tahoma High. He will write about science and pretty soon we will run a column in which he introduces himself, however, I want to just tell you a little bit about him now and why I am thrilled about what he has to offer. Link described himself as a math nerd. This year he is taking quite a few Advanced Placement courses, including two math classes, and is a member of BEAR Metal, Tahoma’s robotics team. He has a particular interest in astrophysics and particle accelerators. He also said he has plenty of ideas about what to cover in his columns so he is also clearly a self-starter. In our chat I found him to be highly intelligent, frankly way smarter than I am, but he has a writing style that will not confuse or alienate readers. Yes, he brought me a sample of his writing, which was also impressive. I am excited to have a voice in the paper which will expound the wonders of science. Then Monday morning I received an email from a Tahoma Junior High ninth grader, Caitlyn Casper, who is interested in photography and writing. She wants to learn more about photography and journalism, she wrote. “I am an honor roll student and many describe me as responsible, artistic, and creative,” Casper wrote. “A few months ago I moved to the

need to raise water and sewer rates, the council viewed different growth scenarios that proved to them that if development would occur it would be unnecessary to raise rates significantly. They agreed. The consultant said city officials should be on the street corners begging the developers to come to town and build. Soon after that work session, the council voted to raise rates 15 percent per year for the next three years. This rate increase applies only to residents on city utilities. The rates do not apply to Lake Sawyer residents or to city residents using Covington Water and

Soos Creek Sewer. Why is this not the time for growth? The economy is strengthening. Housing prices in King County are up, interest rates are still low, but there is little new construction in Black Diamond. Black Diamond is losing businesses rather than having sufficient population to attract or retain businesses. Why is this not the time for development to bring in a reliable revenue stream making it unnecessary for large rate increases? [ more LETTERS page 5 ]

Black Diamond

When Black Diamond was designated as an urban growth area, thousands of acres surrounding the city were saved from development. YarrowBay bought property from several land owners becoming the largest private land owner in the city. The city’s agreement with YarrowBay is to develop their land as a master project, a symbiotic relationship with residents and businesses supporting one another in a balanced manner. The city gains revenue from both activities. Growth pays for growth. Amazingly, half of YarrowBay’s property will be left as open space. This is positively unique compared to what is happening in other cities. The Hearing Examiner and the Superior Court have ruled in favor of the city and YarrowBay, supporting the Master Planned Developments and Development Agreements. An appeal against preliminary plat 1A for The Villages was dismissed by the Hearing Examiner. The court of appeals will soon hear arguments on the MPD and DA. Legal experts believe the court will again side with YarrowBay and the city. The Yarrow Bay project is a done deal. Legally bound contracts were signed three years ago. Even current council members — including those who opposed the YarrowBay project when they ran for office — have stated that the projects will be built. What the city should be doing at this point, the council acknowledges, is ensuring compliance to these contracts. It is time for growth. Support the people who understand the negative impacts of further delay and how it harms rather than helps our city’s financial health. Support the vitality of your city by voting for those who will insure Black Diamond grows responsibly. This November the city needs our votes for Bill Roth, Shawn Oglesbee, Patrick Nelson and Mayor Rebecca Olness.

Bill Boston

Mayor appears overly confident To the editor, The hubris and power that Mayor Olness has repeatedly displayed on her public Facebook re-election page should be alarming for everyone in Black Diamond, and in southeast King County. She appears to have excessive confidence in her own judgment and contempt for the advice or criticism of others. Her continued public Facebook references to the Black Diamond Police, as both a source of information and her inference of inside information regarding police complaints of the opponents “Sign Man” as she calls him, should cause concern greater than any MPDs, schools or tax issues. It isn’t the first time Olness has brought up references to the Black Diamond Police to further some unknown agenda or provide a false sense of validity. We first saw this at the MPD hearings, which had a heavy police presence and at times the police escorted the Mayor from public hearings. We saw it again when the Mayor canceled the K-9 fundraisers and refused to accept a community group’s donation to support the K-9 program. The police were drug out again as a political tool after an internal meeting between Mayor Olness, former City Administrator Pete Butkus, and councilmembers Benson and Deady was somehow leaked with false information to the public that Benson and Deady wanted to eliminate the police department. Olness’ Facebook comments also continue to display her contempt for any constituent that doesn’t support her or vote for her as lacking knowledge and reasonableness, which was noted by (Doug) Ostgard (in a letter to the editor published Sept. 5).

September 13, 2013 [5]

Hundreds of members of the public have taken the time to speak publicly regarding their desire for the city to grow in a fiscally and environmentally manageable way, not to just grow. Olness’ administration continues to confuse technical approvals of the MPD as justification of 6,050 homes. They have nothing to do with each other — whether these agreements are upheld in pending court decisions or not the city of Black Diamond and the City Council had sole power to control the size of the MPDs. Nothing in the State’s Growth Management Act dictated approval of 6,050 homes in Black Diamond. Even though the MPDs are approved there is still much interpretation and implementation of the agreements that require administration and oversight and it is important to have someone who represents the public at large lead that effort, not just someone whose posts and actions make it clear they care only for a few of the so called elders and the developer. Finally, in my opinion, Olness crossed the line with her public comments of disdain regarding her opponent (Dave) Gordon showing up to participate in handing out school supplies to needy children. Really? I have committed my life to helping those less fortunate and in need of a hand up, and I find it incredibly sad that a public servant would tear down anyone who volunteers, misses work to help others, donates their time, money or expertise to uplift humanity. In fact, if anything positive has come from the turmoil in Black Diamond it surely is the massive participation of so many for the good of their community, old, young, working, and retired. In that area Black Diamond should be proud! Please remember to vote on Election Day. Support Gordon, Benson, Edelman, Morgan.

[6] September 13, 2013 [ MEET from page 1] about accountability, the number of public comment opportunities, and control of the city’s affairs. At the City Council special meeting on Sept. 3 council members again discussed the possibility. Mayor Bill Allison had previously spoken in favor of reducing the number of meetings and councilwoman Weaver also spoke in favor at the Sept. 3 meeting. Both felt that reducing the number of meetings would allow city staff to focus on other issues instead of preparing for meetings and reducing the number of meetings would increase efficiency. Councilman Barnes said at the Sept. 3 meeting that he favored the idea but felt

[ CENTER from page 1] during which Covington City Manager Derek Matheson filled everyone in on the city’s history as well as sought suggestions and advice, along with others in the visiting group, about what would be the best way to pursue a similar concept in Covington. Then Rowe and other staff for the institution, also known as UC Everett, showed them around the building on the Everett Community College campus. There are computer labs, classrooms, offices, common areas where students can gather to talk or work on projects, and so on. Western Washington University is UC Everett’s largest partner, offering the most courses and degree programs, but Central Washington and Washington State universities also have a strong presence. Students can pursue bachelor’s

He went on to explain that he wasn’t concerned about the number of public comment opportunities because citizens can also contact the council members at public events, email and call. Barnes said that by maintaining the current schedule and canceling meetings the council can assess if the third meeting is necessary. “I think ultimately we are going to adopt this,” Barnes said. At the meeting on Monday night Jonas reiterated her concerns about the coun-

or master’s degrees through University of WashingtonBothell, The Evergreen State College, Saint Martin’s University, Eastern Washington and Hope International University. Programs range from mechanical engineering to teacher certification to nursing to business administration to social work. A total of 25 degrees are offered on campus, online and through hybrid courses. Students can do an associate’s degree at the community college then transfer to one of the UC Everett programs to complete a bachelor’s degree. Technology plays a significant part in course content delivery. Instructors, for example, can be in Pullman or Lacey or Bellingham while the students could be in Everett or another location, but thanks to cameras and high speed Internet connections

they can come together to learn. Rowe noted that courses taught that way are also recorded so students who miss a class can watch later or it can be revisited if a student wants to review what was covered in that session. The visit took about two hours and for Matheson, it was another in a series of baby steps toward bringing a wide range of higher education options to Covington which could help fill a gap in southeast King County and northeast Pierce County. “I was very impressed by the University Center of North Puget Sound,” Matheson wrote in an email interview Sept. 5. “I’m becoming more and more convinced that the university center concept is our best avenue to bring college—and university— level courses to Covington. I was very pleased that our community-technical

cil’s ability to do its work with only two meetings a month, particularly with the upcoming budget process and a comprehensive plan update that is scheduled next year. Jonas also cited past difficulties with scheduling additional council meetings and coordinating all the council members’ schedules. “I’m very concerned that in three years we’ve gone from four meetings to three, and now some want to go to two,” Jonas said at the Sept. 9 meeting. Jonas also raised questions about how council members are compensated and if their compensation should be adjusted, and pointed out that fewer meetings could lead to longer meetings. Councilwoman Johnson voiced her agreement with Jonas college partners think we’re on the right track in terms of possibly asking the Legislature for a ‘needs assessment’ of higher education in Covington and Southeast King County. This is the same approach UC Everett used during its formation about 10 years ago.” UC Everett is one of seven such centers across the country and the only one in Washington state. It started offering classes in 2002 at the Everett Transit Station before moving to the ECC campus in 2009 where it will be until at least 2016. According to information provided by Rowe, the cost savings of a two plus two program — two years of community college then transferring to a program at UC Everett — saves close to $8,500 over a regional university, more than $14,000 over a state research university and nearly $50,000 compared to an in-state private institution.

CHOLESTEROL Cholesterol may sound like another one of those buzz words parried around when discussing health topics with the doctor— too high or too low, it can be confusing. But a little clarification can go a long way in making sure that people understand cholesterol and how to control it. To begin with, cholesterol is a waxy substance, similar to fat, that is produced by the liver and other cells. It is also found in animal foods such as eggs, dairy products, and meat. Cholesterol is necessary for the body to maintain cell walls, hormones, vitamin D, and the bile that digests fat. However, if one’s cholesterol level is too high, then problems, including heart disease, can occur. Have your cholesterol checked regularly, and come up with a plan with your healthcare provider in order to keep high cholesterol in check. Cholesterol is measured by a blood test performed at your doctor’s office or a lab. A cholesterol test will tell you your total cholesterol level as well as the levels of your good (HDL) and bad (LDL) cholesterol and your triglycerides. How often you have this blood test will depend on your personal risk for heart attacks or strokes. Talk to your healthcare provider about how often your cholesterol should be checked. Please call Southlake Clinic at (253) 395-1972 to schedule a consultation, or visit our clinic at 27005 168th Place SE in Covington. We are open on Saturdays.

While there are many elements of the university center concept Covington could emulate, there are other elements that would be different. “We learned that UC Everett was located offcampus in downtown Everett before it moved to the Everett Community College campus,” Matheson wrote. “UC Everett felt there were pros and cons to the off-campus location. Since our proposed university center would be located in Covington Town Center, we would need to design it to maximize the pros and minimize the cons of an off-campus location.” Next up, Matheson wrote, is to develop the education needs assessment funding request, finalize the city’s legislative agenda then build a coalition to support the request when it is before the state Legislature. Bringing colleges to Covington is an idea which first came up in 2010. The city worked with MultiCare to develop a plan to bring higher education here with

health care as the hook. But that concept has broadened considerably since then. Green River worked with the Covington Chamber of Commerce to develop what they called an interest scan, Matheson told the Reporter in August, to determine what kinds of classes residents would be interested. Based on the responses Green River started offering courses at City Hall last fall. In the meantime, Renton Technical partnered with the Kent School District to offer the Medical Career Pathways program at Kentlake High School. Matheson wrote the city will consider all that. “I expect the needs assessment will take into account current higher education opportunities in Covington and Southeast King County, including current partnerships between communitytechnical colleges and school districts, and start to identify gaps in degrees and perhaps the institutions that could offer those degrees,” Matheson said.

and cited the same concerns. “This has been such a contentious subject that it breaks my heart that we are continuing to press on,” Johnson said. “It’s going to be a 4-3 vote and I think something like this needs more consensus. I think our citizens deserve better of us and I’m very disappointed.” At the Sept. 9 meeting, City Manager David Johnston said that he anticipates the beginning of 2014 being the likely time that the council will begin the two meetings per month schedule. Johnston said that the budget process, which will continue through the end of the year, will necessitate additional meetings and when the council returns to its normal workload would be a logical time to facilitate the new schedule.

www.covingtonreporter.com â&#x20AC;˘ www.maplevalleyreporter.com [ FAMILIES from page 1] Ridge said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was exciting. We decided to move in that direction.â&#x20AC;? In January 2012 the staff began developing from the ground up what would be a program now called Stable Families. It was developed based on what they saw as the needs in the community coupled with the skill set VMP developed during the past 13 years. By the end of the summer they were ready to launch a one-year pilot program. It was supposed to be a small pilot with maybe 10 families. It grew to 27 families. The pilot wraps up this month. During the pilot the staff learned a great deal about what fit, about what assumptions were right and what needed adjusting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;First of all, we learned that it works,â&#x20AC;? Ridge said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We learned that families that come through Stable Families are families that we are certain were on the path to becoming homeless.â&#x20AC;? Ridge explained that there is a path to homelessness. It starts with financial instability. Any number of things can lead to this such as divorce, domestic violence, job loss, mental health issues or even transportation problems. It starts them down a bumpy, downhill road and then one financial crisis can lead to a dilemma which frequently results in an eviction notice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in crisis, they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pay the rent,â&#x20AC;? Ridge said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s this situation they just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get out of and what happens is they fall into this homelessness. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll catch them right

here. What weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to do is to get them way up to stability â&#x20AC;&#x201D; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the goal. What weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing is try to get them to a point where they make a livable wage.â&#x20AC;? Families who come into the program are offered much of the same support those who go through the transitional program receive, what VMP staff call wrap-around services, which goes well beyond providing some money to help pay bills or finding or keeping a place to live. More than a dozen volunteers help coach clients in managing their finances and so on. And what VMP does is facilitate additional support through the Community Caring Network, which is a group of churches, the school districts, the cities of Maple Valley, businesses, and other community organizations such as the Maple Valley Food Bank. There is financial support, help with paying bills, coaching, connection with better jobs, to name a few things members of the network do to help resolve the financial crisis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As they go through this and continue to engage with us â&#x20AC;Ś as long as theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re working those steps, then we continue to support them,â&#x20AC;? Ridge said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This program takes on averageâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;to get from this point of where theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re on the verge of homelessness to stabilityâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;about six months and it costs on average about $9,600. You can see the great benefit, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s way less time, they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to go through the trauma of losing everything. And what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve found through this pilot is

September 13, 2013 [7]

it really works.â&#x20AC;? Compare that to the families in transitional housing, Ridge said. It costs about $48,000 to help them and about a year on average to move them to stability. Add to that the fact VMP has 12 housing units available with far more demand than space, it makes sense to help families before they become homeless so they can continue to live in the same place and learn how to get off the edge of financial instability. Colleen Starr, executive director of VMP, said it is important for the community recognize that there are families in the area the Stable Families program serves â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Maple Valley, Hobart, Black Diamond, Ravensdale, Covington, about a nine mile radius â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that need help despite the perception of a largely middle class population. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These are our neighbors, these are people who their kids go to the Tahoma School District, they work in our community, they shop in our community,â&#x20AC;? Starr said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our goal is to end family homelessness in our community, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lofty goal, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re working toward. We have people in our community who are very low income who are close to homelessness. People think, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oh we live in Maple Valley.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; But there are a lot of people who do not fit into that mold and there are families who fit into our community who are needy.â&#x20AC;? Starr said everyone at VMP is excited about the potential impact of Stable Families. She said they would like to help other

communities replicate it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We think if we as a society could do this in other communities, we could make a much greater impact on homelessness than just building more low-cost housing,â&#x20AC;? Starr said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a way for us as a community to come alongside folks.â&#x20AC;? Ridge believes that Stable Families can be done elsewhere. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easily replicable because you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to worry about the brick and mortar, the expense (involved),â&#x20AC;? Ridge said. Starr added that VMP will continue to provide transitional housing and the wraparound services which accompany that element of the nonprofitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work. Stable Families then is another layer on top of that, financially and in terms of time. Michelle Frets, director of the program, said Stable Families provides that support network those in need in the community do not have. She pointed out that it goes beyond financial assistance, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just some cash and wishing clients luck. Frets said there will be a greater need as Stable Families expands for support from the community both in terms of cash as well as volunteer hours, networking, and other needs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I think about where we were a year ago, the learning curve is outrageous,â&#x20AC;? Frets said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not just transitional housing. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re self-sufficiency. Every day we have these little miracles about new perspective and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just awesome.â&#x20AC;?

Divide and multiply perennials for a maximum colorful return

Q. If I plant lettuce seeds in September, can I harvest the leaves for fresh salads all winter? I put in a first garden this past spring and had good luck with beans, tomatoes, cabbage and cucumbers. I

followed your advice and built a raised bed and filled it with a mix of topsoil and compost. Now I want to keep growing! T.R., Puyallup Marianne Binetti

The Compleat Home Gardener

The second week of September is a good time for some garden math. Divide and then multiply your perennials now for maximum return on your energy investment. Iris, daylilies, phlox, hosta, brunnera and other summer bloomers can be dug from the ground and split apart with a shovel or ax. Some perennials like the shade-loving astilbe can be broken apart with your hands, replanting the young side shoots and discarding any inner or middle sections of the roots that look dark and damaged. The secret to a successful transplant operation is to do the dirty deed on a cloudy or wet day or at least wait until the cool evening hours. Many plant roots have a vampire quality and it is painful for them to be exposed to bright sunlight.

A. Yes - just grow for it. You can plant the seeds of lettuce, Swiss Chard, cabbage and onions now and if you protect the seedlings from the coming cold with a cold frame or hoop house you can be eating from your garden and enjoying your salad days almost yearround. A hoop house is a removable structure made from hoops â&#x20AC;&#x201C; usually bent plastic PVC pipes attached to the side of a raised bed using brackets. Then a sheet of plastic is draped over the hoops so it does not touch the plants and still allows air circulation. You can also purchase hoop houses or cold frames at garden and home stores now. Fall is for planting, so dig in. Q. We have a large apple tree and there is no way we can eat all the apples. Many end up falling to the ground

and attracting wasps. I think we need to clean them up or they will spread disease. My husband says the fallen fruit adds nutrients and organic matter to the soil. Who is correct? P., email A. You both have a point, but youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re missing an opportunity. Extra fruit and garden produce can be donated to your local food bank and apples are especially good for families that struggle to find food to fill a lunch box. Make an extra effort to deliver your garden produce to a food bank clean and in good condition so you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t create extra work for the food bank volunteers. You may also want to ask about gleaning opportunities. This is when community groups volunteer to harvest crops that have already been picked over or to collect fruit from homeowners like you that can no longer eat or collect the fruit themselves. Q. I have heard you speak about using sedum Autumn Joy for long-lasting color in gardens like mine with poor soil â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but at the nursery I also see sedum Brilliant with deep rose blooms and

A. Sounds like the Burning Bush or Euonymus alatus. This tough, flat-topped shrub has corky ridges on the branches but otherwise fades into the background until the fiery fall display of brilliant red foliage. Easy to grow in welldrained soil, the biggest planting mistake is not giving this shrub enough room. Even the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;compactaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; or dwarf form will grow up to 10 feet wide and 6 feet tall. For the best fall performances do not give this euonymus too much to drink and make sure it grows in a sunny location. Add some low growing cotoneaster with bright red berries or plant a golden-

leaved ginko or maple near the burning bush for a fire storm of intense autumn color.

A. I think you should load up a cart with any sedum that catches your eye and find out what survives for you. Consider any plant that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t survive a composting opportunity and a learning experience. In the grand scheme of things investing in plants is an inexpensive gamble as you could hit the jackpot and stumble upon the perfect perennial that loves your site conditions and thrives on the care you give it. When that happens, consider it your signature or theme plant and use it again in several more locations. By repeating a specific plant in your landscape you allow the eye to move easily around the view creating a soothing scene. Just remember to loosen the soil all around the area where you add sedums and succulents to encourage good drainage. Do not fill a new plant-

ing hole for sedums with compost in the bottom. It is the winter rains that rot many plants rather than the winter cold that kills them in western Washington.

Helping my daughter get on the train bound for adulthood

coming to an end as soon as college starts. I know there are a lot of teens working — teens younger than my daughter. But how do teens find work and who will hire them? I feel very baffled about it, feeling as if my teen is the only teen in the city who can’t figure out how to get a job. I was much relieved when I ran into a friend at church with the same predicament. I think one of the issues we have as parents is that short of finding a job for our child ourselves, we want them to want to work. I’m not kicking her out of the house, rather I’m trying to get her to earn money for all the hopes and dreams

What’s blooming at Lake Wilderness Arboretum The United Way Day of Caring takes place on Friday, Sept. 20. Organized locally by United Way of King County, the event makes it possible for people to volunteer in special work groups that visit local nonprofits, public schools and city parks for a day of service. Group leaders work with each organization on specific projects that volunteers accomplish by day’s end. “The United Way Day of Caring is the largest volunteer event in Washington State,” said Amy Hardebeck, Executive Director of the Lake Wilderness Arboretum Foundation. “It’s a great way to help out local nonprofits, and have fun, too.”

We made a dollar an hour. When that dried up, I delivered the local newspaper after school on my bike. When I was old enough to drive, I delivered the morning paper before school, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, to all of Cle Elum and South Cle Elum. I always had a car. I always had my own money.

There was no online place to fill out an application. I had to go into the office and apply in person, then I began a phone calling campaign. I got the job. I didn’t get it because I had experience clearing trails, I got the job because I bugged the person who hired. So, I know how to work. I know how to get a job. But I don’t know what the answer is to getting my oldest daughter working. Maybe it’s motivation or desire on her end. There may also be trepidation about entering the work force because it signals the end of her childhood. I guess that���s why I haven’t pushed her, I don’t want her to grow up either. But it’s too late for that. It

It’s not like she’s not working at all, which is why I haven’t bothered her much this summer. She works Mondays and Fridays for about three hours at a family friend’s art studio. It’s not a lot of money, but it has kept her in gas, haircuts, and supplies for her pet rats this summer. But that will be

Kentwood’s Terrance Grady said his teammate Brandon Sytsma would make big plays this season and that’s exactly what the senior running back did Sept. 6 when Auburn visited French Field. Sytsma scored two touchdowns in the space of one minute, 37 seconds in the fourth quarter to swing the momentum from the Trojans to the Conquerors. Sytsma ran for a 21-yard score with 3:27 left in the game to give Kentwood its first lead of the contest. On Kentwood’s next offensive possession following a defensive stand which forced Auburn to punt, Sytsma took it 64 yards on the first play from scrimmage to give Kentwood a comfortable 29-19 lead with 1:50 on the clock. There were moments in the first half, however, when Kentwood’s offense sputtered while the defense contained Auburn. Auburn scored a touchdown on the first drive of the game and Kentwood’s offense followed by going three and out, with a punt putting Auburn on its won 44 yard line. Kentwood’s defense was able to hold Auburn on the next drive, but on the next Kentwood

possession the snap flew over the quarterback’s head and out of the end zone for an Auburn safety, putting Auburn up 9-0. At the beginning of the second quarter penalties cost Auburn, nullifying touchdowns on back-toback plays and Kentwood was able to hold Auburn and get the ball back. Kyle Capperauld picked up an Auburn turnover and returned the ball some 90 yards for a Kentwood touchdown with 17 seconds left in the half. The extra point made the score 9-7 in Auburn’s favor at the half. Later in the third quarter Auburn picked off the ball and returned it for a touchdown, making the score 16-7. An Auburn field goal with 2:25 left in the third quarter gave the Trojans another three points for a 19-7 margin. At the start of the fourth quarter Derrick Bell came up with a big play and carried the ball from the Kentwood 39 to the Auburn 10. Brain Campbell then followed up with a carry up the middle for a touchdown. The extra point cut the Trojans’ lead to five with 9:18 to go. The defense once again held Auburn and Kentwood took the punt at its own 17 yard line. Grady hauled in a pass for a pick up of 30 yards on third and 10. Sytsma picked

up the first down on the next drive, which he then followed with the 21-yard touchdown to put Kentwood ahead, pouring it on to end the night with the 29-19 victory over Auburn.

SOUTH PUGET SOUND LEAGUE 4A NORTH WEEK ONE:

Kentlake opened the season with a stunning 32-7 loss on the road to Thomas Jefferson as the Raiders ran over the Falcons in the first half. Jefferson scored 26 points by halftime while containing Kentlake to seven and the Raiders never let up. Jordan Axelson had the Falcons’ lone touchdown when he scored from one yard out in the first quarter. Kentlake had a 7-6 lead going into the second quarter, but a fumble on the Falcons own 40 was scooped up by a Raider and run back for a touchdown to give Jefferson a 12-7 lead after a failed two-point conversion. The Raiders never looked back. This Friday Kentlake plays Kent-Meridian at 7 p.m. at French Field. The Falcons look to avenge an upset loss in 2012 to the Royals. Tahoma opened its season by crushing visiting Kent-Meridian 51-6 which featured a banner evening for senior quarterback

Nelson finished the evening 22-for-34 passing, piling up 348 yards and four touchdowns while Williams hauled in nine catches for 195 yards and a touchdown to go with a 95-yard score on the opening kick off return. Denham Patricelli, a senior who missed last

season after having elbow surgery, caught nine passes for 76 yards and three touchdowns. Defensively Elijah Suka had 13.5 tackles while Amandre Williams added two tackles for a loss. Tahoma travels to Bethel Thursday night for a nonleague game which will be broadcast on ROOT Sports.

Girls soccer teams have one goal in common: make the playoffs BY KRIS HILL khill@maplevalleyreporter.com

If all goes to plan on the pitch, this should be a bounce back season for the girls soccer teams from Kentwood and Kentlake while Tahoma looks to replicate its success of 2012.

TAHOMA LOOKS TO RELOAD A year ago Tahoma, led by six seniors, went undefeated in South Puget Sound League 4A North play, lost to Skyline in the state semifinals before finishing the season with a third place trophy and a 21-1-0 record. This season the Bears look to reload with a fresh crop of talent along with a handful of returning starters with significant experience to lead the squad. “It’s a lot harder at the start because everyone left, so we have to build from the ground up,” said senior goalkeeper Jenna Sloan. Bailey Martoncik, a senior who plays center mid, explained that as captains they have tried to teach the new players how they play

Tahoma soccer. Cheyenne Haverfield, a senior who plays in the middle of the defense, said it will be important for her to lead well from that position because of the new players but she is confident they will come together because they are solid fundamentally. Sloan noted that many of the players worked harder in the offseason by hitting the weight room and working out more. Some of the girls who did so were surprising. She said the benefits of the extra work the team did will be evident on during matches. “It just made up physically stronger,” Sloan said. “It’s easier to stay on the ball. We’re fitter.” Stepping it up should make it easier for Tahoma to accomplish what the team hopes to do this fall. “We set some individual goals,” Haverfield said. “We also set team goals. We would like to take league again and get to state, then take it from there.” Martoncik said one of the strengths of the Bears is

Kentwood seems to trade off with Tahoma in recent years, is a boost, Charlton said. “It really sets a high standard going into the postseason,” Charlton said. “The SPSL North and South are probably two of the toughest leagues.” In order to get back to state, Oak said, it will take a change of mindset. “We need to have a great attack system,” Oak said. “We honestly just need to score. We just need to attack the goal and score.” This is a shift from a more defensive-minded approach Charlton said Kentwood has taken in recent years. Another shift for Charlton and Oak is a greater focusing on conditioning by head coach Aaron Radford. “At tryouts Radford saw we were low on fitness,” Charlton said. “So, every Thursday he’s had us running, like 12 minute runs and sprints. We work hard at practice.” Better conditioning and a focus on offense will also require a different speed of play, Oak said, because they discovered at a recent jamboree how much quicker other varsity squads move compared to how they have

scrimmaged in practice against the Kentwood junior varsity. Charlton said that stepping up speed of play in matches is something they will continue to work on. And when it comes to rivalries, they look forward to playing Tahoma just as much as the Bears can’t wait to take on the Conks. “Because we’ve been really close competitively,” Charlton said. ‘And because they’re two miles away.” They also look forward to playing Kentridge, which is led by a former Conks assistant Sherri Rolfs. “We have a lot of friends on Kentridge, so, we want to kick their butts,” Oak said. Ultimately, Charlton said, rivalries aside, the players on the Kentwood girls soccer team knows what they want to accomplish this season. “We’re determined this year,” Charlton said. “Everyone has the right mindset — we want to go far, we want to beat the teams we’re supposed to beat.” And start a new string of state tournament appearances.

Knowing the signs and risks of concussions key to athlete safety MultiCare Orthopedics & Sports Medicine

As kids return to school and fall sports seasons get under way, it’s a good time for a reminder about the danger of concussions. Here in Western Washington, parents and coaches are increasingly aware of concussions, thanks in part to education surrounding the state’s Zackery Lystedt Law that requires medical clearance before young athletes can return to play after a concussion. For athletes of all ages, an increased level of awareness can make a huge difference. It’s important to recognize when a concussion occurs so that the athlete can be removed from the game

and avoid potentially more serious consequences. If an athlete keeps playing after a concussion that’s a big problem. One danger is post-concussive syndrome. Essentially, this is like having a concussion longer than six weeks. Another danger is second-impact syndrome. If a player takes a blow the head, then returns to play and takes another blow before fully recovering — even a week later — the person can develop severe swelling in the brain, which can lead to death. If there’s any question, it’s always safer to assume it’s a concussion and pull the child out of competition. Basically, a concussion occurs after a blow to

the head or face, or even elsewhere in the body if the forces are transmitted to the head like whiplash. The person might experience headache, dizziness, nausea, vomiting or just feel not quite right. To determine when an athlete can return to play, only athletic trainers, physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants are licensed in the state of Washington to make that evaluation. Most concussion injuries can be treated by following up with a primary-care provider, or someone who is trained in concussion management. More urgent evaluation would be needed if the athlete is unable to communicate, has a rapidly worsening headache or has

a seizure. In my office, we most commonly see concussions from football, followed by soccer. Other sports, such as lacrosse and hockey, have a high frequency of concussions. As far as prevention, there are a lot of questions about helmets and headgear in football and soccer. In football, there is no perfect helmet that prevents all concussions. It just doesn’t exist. Parents should be wary of such claims. The key is to have a newergeneration helmet that has been properly fitted. In soccer or other sports, there isn’t any convincing medical evidence that protective headgear truly prevents concussions, so it’s not recommended at this

time. In soccer, concussions are usually caused by collisions, either head-to-head or falling to the ground. If a player has good technique while heading the ball, it’s not supposed to cause concussions. A baseline test conducted before the season can be used for comparison if an athlete sustains a concussion during the season. The test can help determine when the person is back to
