Bonney Lake candidates debate issues Editor’s Note: Candidates for the mayor and City Council Positions answered the questions this week posed by the editorial staff of the Courier-Herald. The candidates are: • Mayor, Neil Johnson and James Rackley • Position 3, Dan Swatman and James ‘’Kelly’’ McClimans, Sr. McClimans did not send answers; • Position 6, Donn Lewis a n d Shawnta Mulligan. Mulligan did not send answers. Question 1: Do impact fees promote or impede business and residential development? What do you see as the advantages and/or disadvantages of impact fees. Rackley: Impact fees have no correlation to construction volume of new homes in Bonney Lake. This is

evident by reviewing city construction records verses all county wide construction for years. While we have seen increased James Rackley construction after lowering these fees over the last year, so has Tehaleh, which has no fees. These costs were all calculated by professionals hired by the city of Bonney lake and are not created out of thin air. During times of very fast growth they can be seen very clearly, as happened over the last decade. Funds were available to expand the sewer system (approximately $10 million) and to build a 15 million gallon water storage tank (approximately $10 million). The same is true for parks, trails

and sidewalks. Johnson: As we review this question, we should keep in mind there has always been a form of Neil Johnson impact fees it is called SEPA. This process was arbitrary and didn’t always account for the appropriate amount of infrastructure that is needed for water, sewer and traffic. It is important that growth pays for itself, however if there is a certain sector that needs to be the focus of the city then you could look at some of the incentive ordinances that were put in place to attract building and retail activity during the recession. The Good Samaritan Medical Building and Franciscan Medical Building are

Bonney Lake and Sumner score victories Page 5

perfect examples of what can be accomplished. Another item to note for us in Bonney Lake, the cost of infrastructure improvements is much higher due to our topography when expanding the water and sewer lines. The other area we have lacked from the 90’s was funding for additional north/south routes on the Plateau. Impact fees do work both ways, you just need to be aware of what the needs and desires are of the citizens. Question 2: Parks are an ongoing discussion in the city. What do you see as the best course for the city to take in the coming years for parks and ball fields. Are there enough in the city, are more needed and if so how should

After 15 years of envisioning the possibility, the Sumner School District Athletic Department has found a way to recognize athletic achievements. Individuals and teams that reach the highest standards will be inducted into their respective high school’s Wall of Fame. Friday marked Sumner High School’s first Wall of Fame individual induction ceremony, which honored John Anderson. The announcement came as a surprise to Anderson, who was unanimously selected in secret by the Wall of Fame selection committee, which he is a member of himself. A plaque with his name and accomplishments was placed on the wall, and a replica was handed directly to him. Anderson is a former educator, football coach and athletic director for Sumner High School. His many accomplishments include five league championships,

Page 2 • The BONNEY LAKE Courier-Herald • Wednesday, October 23, 2013

DEBATE FROM 1 Johnson: As a city we seem to have enough fields for today’s population, however the biggest issue is looking towards the future. We need to have a financial plan in place to addresses the needs of Bonney Lake and encourage the same of the unincorporated Pierce County areas. A good funding plan could be put together in a bond package for projects and maintenance for the citizens of Bonney Lake to vote on. This package would allow for a detailed list of what will be constructed and maintained over the time frame of the bond. Some of the items we have been told to look at is ball fields, trails, active open space, dog parks and a recreation / community center. In putting together this bond package, the city must reach out to all stakeholders so we can maximize the dollars and efforts by all. I have always been reminded, a healthy community is a strong community. Rackley: The city could use four more baseball and soccer fields right now. Over the last five years the general fund has been very strained and investments in this area have been few, but in the near future more we will begin to do better. It all depends on the economy recovering. It might be possible to increase the parks impact fee to help cover the cost. Question 3: How has the Eastown process been handled by the city and how should it be handled in the future. Rackley: Laurie Carter’s article on Eastown in last week’s Courier-Herald did a good job of explaining the situation in Eastown. I have been trying for years, to persuade, cajole, and even yell a few times to move this forward as fast as possible. If elected I will push even harder. The future of our city is predicated on the income from this infrastructure improvement and subsequent development. We are currently in discussions with the county to annex the county’s urban growth area south of the city. The tax funds from Eastown are needed to help pay for this. Johnson: Here is another area that has been “under” construction for 13 years or so. In 2000, this area annexed into the city, and at that time the folks in Eastown expected to have sewers installed. Since becoming mayor in 2006, I have worked hard with the council to come up with various plans of action that were discussed with many stakeholders. In 2012, a partnership was formed and passed by the council that will have sewers installed in Eastown by 2014. It is important for the city to continue taking an active role in this process so we can make sure the area develops as envisioned in the Eastown plan while providing the necessary services to the citizens of Bonney Lake. • Position 3, Dan Swatman Question 1: Do impact fees promote or impede business and residential development? What do you see as the advantages and/or disadvantages of impact fees. Swatman: Impact fees are a critical part on ensuring that development pays for the impacts, not existing residents. Impact fees have to be at the correct level to be effective. I worked with council approval, to bring a top economist to the city to present information about what level the impact fees should be at in our current economic conditions. Currently these fees have paid for many improvements such as the intersection on 410 by Franciscan, which was a partnership between private and public dollars, the partial improvements to Veterans Memorial and 410, which will be finished through future work at the intersection of 410 funded by payments from the Tehaleh development. By having the correct level of impact fees, private development such as the new Red Robin that is going in by Target, are able to come to Bonney Lake while at the same time providing enough in impact fees for needed improvements. Too low and the taxpayers will get stuck with the bill for improvements and if set too high future councils are likely to overshoot lowering the fees, when the cycle of fee adjustment occurs

DEBATE FROM 1 Question 2: Parks are an ongoing discussion in the city. What do you see as the best course for the city to take in the coming years for parks and ball fields. Are there enough in the city, are more needed and if so how should would the funding work? Swatman Bonney Lake is a fantastic community to live in and raise a family. Parks, play fields, trails and open space are key elements contributing to the quality of life. As a council member I always look toward the future needs of the community, as the community grows more parks, play fields, trails will be needed. As a council member I support purchasing necessary land when the land is available such as the recent purchase of the property by Victor Falls. This property will provide future room for park space and public access to the actual falls, which are second in height to Snoqualmie Falls. The 45 acres of park in the midtown area, many other smaller pieces and many slivers of property that may be connected for future trails continue to be purchased. Having the property is a critical step, while

Wednesday, October 23, 2013 • The BONNEY LAKE Courier-Herald • Page 3 there is no funding for large-scale improvements to many of these areas, having the property will provide options for the future. As opposed to a large openended tax, a specific targeted bond measure with very specific costs and results could be presented to the voters. Question 3: How has the Eastown process been handled by the city and how should it be handled in the future. Swatman: As with any complex issue, a significant amount of time and effort must be done to achieve a solution that works for everyone. Eastown is composed of many property owners and several interest groups who all have specific issues and needs. Finding a solution was often contentious and challenging. Contention is a necessary component during the process of finding a solution. I worked with the administration and several other council members to form a proposal that was approved unanimously by the city council. The current solution is under construction to provide needed infrastructure. The Eastown and Midtown area will conschool or the community. Candidate criteria includes: • The sport or activity being honored must be an activity that was performed at the stadium, which was built in 1959. Some of the eligible sports include track, football and soccer. • Participation at any high school in the Sumner School District. • Team and/or individual league, district or state championship participation. Sumner’s Stadium Wall of Fame is located on the

tinue to be areas that provide the community with commercial opportunities and tax base that will help reduce property taxes and provide general fund revenue. The city plays a key role in providing the necessary infrastructure needed by the private property owners. Planning for these future needs has always been a key issue for me as I look toward the future. The developers will pay their share of the costs of the necessary improvements; failure to plan for these needs leaves the possibility of the taxpayers getting stuck for the bill because of inattention to provide for these future needs.

ly require additional city resources means that this new growth should pay for the required increases and additions needed to supply the water, sewer, and traffic improvements necessary to support that potential new growth. In other words, growth should pay for itself and the city’s impact fees are the way that happens. The new Franciscan Medical Building and the resulting new Downtown Main Street/Highway 410 intersection with new curbs and sidewalks is the most recent result of how the city and a new developer can work together to make these types of improvements happen.

• Position 6, Donn Lewis Question 1: Do impact fees promote or impede business and residential development? What do you see as the advantages and/or disadvantages of impact fees.

Question 2: Parks are an ongoing discussion in the city. What do you see as the best course for the city to take in the coming years for parks and ball fields. Are there enough in the city, are more needed and if so how should would the funding work?

Lewis: The current City Council has always viewed impact fees as a necessity for future growth of the city. As each development takes place, there will be a required impact on the city’s water, sewer, and traffic. The fact that this development will definitenorth wall of the entrance plaza.

The Wall of Fame is sponsored by Sara Johnson, superintendent of Sumner School District; Mark Baumgarten, director of facilities and capital projects; Robert Lindstrom, architect at BLRB Architects; and Brian Bradley, art director at BLRB Architects.

Lewis: Future parks and ballfields are important for all our residents. While today we

have enough for our current population of over 18,000 people, we know that we must plan for both future growth. Part of this is to work with Pierce County and surrounding towns to ensure the entire area can meet this new demand. With the downturn in the economy, Bonney Lake has seen a reduction in Sales Tax revenue which impacts parks. Our city has looked at ways to pay for future parks and thought the Municipal Park District or MPD might be a possible solution. A few people thought this should be immediately “Turned Down” by the council and not placed on the ballot. I, for one, thought the democratic way of letting the voters decide was the correct way to accomplish it. I voted with other council members to place it on the ballot and let the people decide. Question 3: How has the Eastown process been handled by the city and how should it be handled in the future. Lewis: When I ran for

my current council position four years ago, the position was in Ward 4 (prior to all council positions being at large). Eastown is located in Ward 4 and I’m very familiar with its decadeplus history of trying to obtain city sewers to provide commercial development. When the area was annexed into the city in 2000, the residents in Eastown were under the impression sewers would be installed within a few years. When I was elected to the City Council four years ago, they were still trying to get this accomplished. Both the mayor and city council have worked hard to come up with possible plans of action. Finally in 2012, the current ULA partnership plan for Sewer Extension into Eastown was approved by the City Council and should result in having sewers installed by 2014. The City Council is closely monitoring this sewer installation plan to ensure this resulting new eastern area develops according to its Eastown Plan and the City’s Comprehensive Plan.

Bonney Lake Panthers finding its stride By Sarah Wehmann Staff Writer

The Bonney La ke Panthers won their second game of the season beating the Enumclaw Hornets 14-7 Friday at Pete’s Pool. The game got off to a slow start with Enumclaw scoring first with 7:44 to go in the second quarter. This would be the only time the Hornets would score. The Panthers intercepted an Enumclaw pass late in the first half but were not able to convert. The Hornets led 7-0 entering halftime. At halftime, coach Jason

Silbaugh said, they challenged their seniors to step up. “We relied on our senior linemen to push us through the rest of the game,” he said. Bonney Lake tied the game 7-7 midway through the third quarter. The Panthers scored one more time early in the fourth quarter on a pass to senior Robert Combs, taking the lead to 14-7. With 4:16 left to play in the game, Bonney Lake fumbled and Enumclaw recovered the ball. The Panthers stopped the Hornets on fourth and 14.

Enumclaw gave the ball over on downs with 1:19 left in the game. The Panthers held onto to the ball for the remainder of the game. Bonney Lake controlled the ball better in the second half with fewer turnovers and defense stepped up making tackles and eliminating Enumclaw’s running game, Silbaugh said. The Panthers have a two game winning streak and improve to 2-1 in league play and 2-5 overall. Bonney Lake faces Lakes at 7 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 25 at Sunset Chev Stadium.

If only D.C. would take author’s advice Have you ever thought about your life as you live it? I have, and I’ve come to the conclusion that each of us struggles to decide what to do with the hundreds of decisions we make each day. Those decisions send us in one direction or the other and make us who we are. Perhaps we can shape the directions of our lives better if we Rich Elfers become more Columnist aware of these daily decisions. In that regard, I’ve thought about the decisions of the president and leaders of Congress toward the government shutdown. Both the president and the Republican House leaders have perspectives that differ over the best direction to take the country. Fortunately for the nation and the world, the deadlock ended Oct. 17. Neither group really knew how the other side would react. We humans are all in the same boat. Time passes and decisions loom, but with all the potential choices before us, none of us is sure which of the many options we should choose. We all take a leap of faith, hoping our decisions are the correct ones. Those consequences bring new problems and new

In this newspaper, you recently read about the purchase of property on Rhodes Lake Road adjacent to the city well with a view of Victor Falls. In that same edition, Theresa De Lay also wrote a story about the Fennel Creek Safe Routes to School Trail link completion and the ribbon cutting to be held Oct. 26 at 1 p.m. at the Willow Brook Storm Pond at 11110 185th Ave E. I have already seen several posts on Facebook of people using the trail. I saw pictures of kids on bikes, families walking and Councilman Donn Lewis shared that Bonney Lake High School teams are using the trail for practice. Look at the ads. There are businesses that promise healthier living

Clipping nails needs positive reinforcement Welcome to Buckley Veterinary Hospital’s monthly pet care column. You finally mustered the nerve to carry out the task you’ve been dreading all week. Brush in one hand, nail clippers in the other, you hunt for Fido throughout the house. “I got him. He’s over here!” shouts your significant other or perhaps your roommate or a friend over to help with the task. Many pet parents are afraid or unable to trim their dog or cat’s nails and some are even unable to brush their pets. You might think it’s not a big deal; however, these are essential pet care tasks that may need to be performed on a regular basis. Untrimmed or worn nails can snag on objects and tear as well as cause abnormal walking gait. They can even grow so long that they curve around back into the foot causing lameness and pain. Long nails can also cause damage to furniture and can scratch folks who are playing with their long-nailed pets. Luckily it turns out that both dogs and cats can be trained to allow and even

enjoy grooming and toenail trims. The trick is to pair the event with something positive and to train in systematic steps. For instance, to train a pet to tolerate toenail trim we want to associate the procedure with good things like food or treats. Start with whatever the pet can handle easily. For instance for pets who bolt at the sight of toenail trimmers you don’t want to start by pairing a toenail trimming with food. Rather, pair the sight of the trimmers with good things – place them near their food bowl so the pet has to be near it every day when they eat or put a treat like canned food, peanut butter or spray cheese on the nail trimmer handles so the pet can lick the treat off every time they walk by. Alternatively, for pets who eat inanimate objects with food on them, you can hold the trimmers with treats on it and remove the trimmers once the food is all licked off. Once the pet consistently acts as if she’s about to get treats when she see the trimmers you can go on to

the next step of pairing foot handling with treats. The easiest variation uses two people – one to give treats and one to handle the feet. First have the pet sit in a comfortable position. Start by giving treats and once the pet’s in a happy state start rubbing the feet lightly. The goal is for the pet to focus only on the food, so if he acts like he notices his feet are being touched you’ll need to make the handling even easier, by handling higher up the leg instead. After several seconds of handling and feeding, stop and remove you handling hand and then the food-dispensing hand. Wait about five seconds then repeat the procedure. The timing can be crucial because we want to make it clear that handling the foot equals treats, no handling equals no treats, and we always want the pet in a positive emotional state. When the pet’s good at this step go to pairing more vigorous handling with treats. With each step handle the feet more vigorously, but only go to the next step when you’re sure he associates the previous step with

good things. In later steps, practice putting the clippers over the nail so your pet gets used to the feel paired with treats. And the final step is pairing the actual toenail clipping with treats. Beyond this, you can also progress to clipping the nail and giving the treats afterward, too. Just be sure that when you clip, you avoid clipping into the pink part of the nail that contains the blood vessel and nerves or you’ll set the process back. Sometimes the process takes just minutes. Sometimes it takes a week with twice daily, short sessions. You may also need coaching from a veterinary team trained in these techniques and you may want to find a hospital or groomer trained in these low-stress behavior modification techniques. Education is key. We welcome you to set up a technician appointment to have one of our team members trim your furry family member’s nails and show you how to trim nails if you’d like Special thanks to Pet Health Network and to our readers – we welcome you

If only both could have been a little more humble and more open to what Steven Covey warned: “Seek first to understand, and then be understood.” If only our governmental leaders had asked what motivated their opponent(s) and how did they see the world? That would require real listening and the ability to ask probing questions. It would also require humility to believe that perhaps someone else’s point of view had some validity.

By then our children are grown and the damage has been done, or the benefits reaped. As one person noted, once we have been trained to be good parents, we’re out of a job because our children have grown up and left home. Wouldn’t it be easier if we had a crystal ball or the gift of prophecy so we could see the end result of our choices before we made them? What if all of us followed the advice of the late author, Steven Covey, who admonished us to, “Plan with the end in mind.”? Perhaps we

would make fewer mistakes. Possibly we could change the trajectory of our lives if we incorporated that axiom in our decision-making. I know I made better decisions in raising my children because I taught high school students and I saw the effects of parents’ choices on teens. I observed the behavior of my students and then asked myself what attitudes and approaches their parents incorporated to make their children act the way they did. Using that insight, I decided in what direction I should nudge my children to avoid the mistakes and imitate the successes I saw in the students I taught. Steven Covey’s advice really does work, but using it forces us to look to the long term, not the expediency 904239

Sumner tennis league champs Spartan’s winning

By Sarah Wehmann Staff Writer

Undefeated seasons don’t happen often, Sumner’s boy’s tennis coach Chris Heacox said. But that’s exactly what

the Spartans did during the 2013-2014 season, they went undefeated 12-0. Sumner only lost six total matches the entire season, ending with an individual record of 54-6. “We knew going in that

we had a very strong team,” he said. “Maybe the strongest in my nine years as the head coach.” Three players rotated through the two singles spots – freshman Zaylan Jacobsen, junior Za k Landers and senior Cody Jagodinski. Heacox credits them as being the reason why the team went undefeated. Jacobsen, Landers and Jagodinski were undefeated in all the matches they played. The highlight for Heacox has been winning the league championship, he said. This is the first time Sumner has won the championship since winning it in 2007 and 2008.

Jacobsen was named the Singles Player of the Year as well as named to the first team all-league. Also, named to the first team all-league was Landers, Jagodinski and doubles player senior Brandon Walsh. Senior doubles player Nathan Santo Domingo was named to the honorable mention all-league. “It feels great going undefeated,” Walsh said. “Being my senior year, makes it that much better.” League tournament play started Oct. 16. and the district tournament is set for Nov. 1 and 2. After districts, those who qualify will continue onto the state tournament in May 2014.

Sumner is scheduled to play at Franklin Pierce, 7 p.m. on Thursday.

Cade and Lindsey Hanbidge. The away game Oct. 15 had a final score of 2-0. The girls also beat Auburn Mountainview and Black Hills at home games with final scores of 1-0 and 3-1, respectively. Bonney Lake will face off against Lakes, 7 p.m. Thursday at Harry Lang Stadium.

streak continues By Dennis Box Editor

The Spartans gave the homecoming fans something big to celebrate – a 55-8 victory over Washington at Sunset Chev Stadium Friday. The undefeated Spartans have two games remaining in the season. Sumner travels to Fife for a 7 p.m. game Friday. The final game of the season is setting up to be a battle of the undefeated teams. Sumner will host White River, the other undefeated team in the South Puget Sound League, 2A. Friday, Sumner posted 21 points in the first quarter,

despite Washington’s physical defense. “We had a good all around game,” coach Keith Ross said. Defensively the Spartans again were dominate. “Jesse Lindahl had 17 tackles,” Ross said. “Austin Striplin played nose guard and had 15 tackles. Jace Johnson had an interception return for 33 yards. We blocked a punt, scored on a fake punt and scored on a fumble recovery. It was a great night and it is always important to get a win on your homecoming game. We are excited to play Fife this week. They are big and physical and will present a great challenge for us.”

Beautify Bonney Lake successful By Sarah Wehmann Staff Writer

For the tenth year in a row the Beautify Bonney Lake event took place on Sept. 21. About 500 volunteers spent roughly three hours work i ng t h rou g hout Bonney Lake. There were three major projects the event focused on, executive director Lillian McGinnis said. Apart from the major projects of cleaning up around the senior center, working in the midtown park and cleaning up along state Route 410, there were roughly 22 other sites where volunteers worked at.

McGinnis said they have always been pretty lucky with weather, she only remembers it raining once about five years ago. This year, it rained heavily the night before but cleared up in the morning just in time for the event to start. Beautify Bonney Lake always takes place on the third Saturday of September. Fall is the best time of the year to plant, McGinnis said. It also works well with school schedules and those students and scouts that need service hours, she added. “It’s amazing what you can do in three hours when you get 500-600 people together,” McGinnis said.

Police department receives award By Theresa De Lay Staff Writer

For the first time in more than a decade, Lake Tapps wasn’t responsible for any water related deaths in the last year. In recognition of their efforts at the lake, Bonney Lake Police Department received the “Boating Safe Educational Service Award.” The award – presented annually to only one law enforcement agency by the Washington State Parks Department – recognizes Marine Service Units that focus on water

safety education. The summers of 2011 and 2012 saw four combined drownings on Lake Tapps within a 12-month timeframe, said Bonney Lake Sgt. Ryan Boyle. In order to prevent history from repeating itself, Chief Dana Powers and Assistant Chief James Keller asked the Marine Service Unit to push harder on education prior to summer 2013. The unit responded to the request with fervor and they were able to accomplish a lot, thanks to additional funding from the city, Boyle said.

An emphasis on safety patrols was just the tip of the iceberg in BLPD’s education outreach program. The department, assisted by East Pierce Fire and Rescue, conducted water safety assemblies at over 30 schools in the Sumner, Dieringer and Fife school districts this year. They reached over 7,000 students and hope to include more next year, said Bonney Lake Police Officer Daron Wolschleger. “We had a lot of fun at the water safety

Buckley looks to sell natural gas By Kevin Hanson Senior Writer

The city of Buckley hopes to sell its natural gas system and has a willing buyer in Puget Sound Energy – now it’s up to the voting public to decide. Proposition No. 1 appears on the general election ballot that last week landed in the laps of voters throughout Pierce County. The mail-in ballots must be returned by election day, Nov. 5. The idea of selling off the natural gas utility has been years in the making, as the notion of a small town maintaining its own system became increasingly difficult. Everincreasing regulations placed on the natural gas industry have made it difficult for small operators to provide the service at a competitive price. Added to the mix are costs of upkeep on an aging system and the oftenvolatile open market. Finally, earlier this year, members of the Buckley City Council decided to put the natural gas system up for sale, using a competitive bid process. A few suitors expressed interest but, in the end, only Puget Sound Energy jumped in. PSE offered 5.4 million, slightly

more than the city had hoped to get. The city had previously polled its citizens and received resounding support for unloading the gas system. A sale to PSE may benefit both private citizens and Buckley businesses if early numbers are to be believed. Information found in the current voters pamphlet notes that PSE’s residential rates are up to 10 percent less that the city now charges, while PSE’s business rate is, on average, 6 percent less than the city’s. A citizen group favoring the sale adds that Buckley is unable to provide many of the incentives PSE has at its disposal – things like rebates on energeyefficient appliances and weatherization programs. Puget Sound Energy can offer such programs, along with better rates, due to its large customer base. It is the largest natural gas provider in the Puget Sound region with more than 760,000 customers scattered throughout 10 counties. Buckley is one of just three cities in Washington that maintains its own gas utility, the others being nearby Enumclaw and the Kittitas County community of Ellensburg.

The science behind big screen TVs Back in the day when I was full of spark and vinegar, television sets, both portable and console, were huge, clumsy things. To move a large console with a 26-inch screen required nothing less than a team of horses or half the neighbors in your block. I had a high-school physics class t hat explained the theory and practical functions of such antiques. Each TV set contained a cathoderay tube. Remember? This cone-shaped contraption shot a bean of electrons from the rear, narrow end of the structure to the face of the tube – that

Obviously, the cathode tube is terribly Wally DuChateau obsolete so, before I became similarly passé Columnist and ready for the trash pile, I decided to check is, the screen – where out the technology and the electrons arranged theory behind a modern themselves in horizontal TV. At their best, cathlines and “miraculously” ode tubes had roughly 30 formed a picture. pixels (specks) per diagoToday, of course, nal screen inch.

If you haven’t the faces of spectators 20 done so lately, step into rows behind home plate.

Wally’s World

(Math has never been my strong suit but, near as I can calculate, these figures are pretty accurate.) Plasma screens are filled with various inert gases that become very luminesce and brilliant when stimulated by subatomic stuff. LCD screens are something else, again. The acronym stands for “liquid crystal display.” What is that, you might reasonably ask. A “liquid crystal” sounds like an oxymoron and, to say the least, it’s a most unusual and weird state of physical matter, to be sure. Liquid crystals don’t obey the “laws” found in

most high school physics textbooks. They are crystals that have somehow been turned into a thick, slippery syrup, just as their name implies. They refract and ref lect light with all the brightness and sharpness of normal crystals – indeed, they have all the defining characteristics of normal crystals – but they can be poured. Of course, this strange stuff is used in more than LCD televisions. They’re also used in tiny screens like iPhones and iPads and in very large screens, as evidenced by the massive displays in sporting arenas.

Today, TV screens 70 or 80 inches across are still a bit too expensive for the average person, but they’ll become cheaper and rather commonplace in the next few years. Such wall-mounted screens, combined with surround sound, will revolutionize our entertainment world, especially when our computers are also fed into them. I don’t think it bodes well for motion picture theaters, unless they have gigantic screens like Seattle’s Cinerama.

Rules for leading a good life are found in Genesis Most everything I really need to know about how to live on Earth and how to get to heaven can be found in Genesis. Many of you will recognize that I am mimicking the title of a wonderful essay written several years ago by Robert Fulghum which he titled, “Every thing I Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten.” His essay contains some delightful wisdom about life that inspires this one about keeping it simple as we navigate our pilgrimage to eternity. In the Book of Genesis we learn basic instruc-

Church Corner David Rapp Chaplain, St. Elizabeth Hospital

tions that will keep us on course: • God made us – all of us and each of us – to be the same and that is to be his children made in his image and likeness. We might use the metaphor of saying we share soul DNA. • God is love, the creator; he breathed his life and his spirit into us and

we came to be. We are made to be holy (like God). Don’t belittle God’s work by thinking that being a saint is just for other people. The call to holiness is universal. • Because of our “Genesis DNA,” when Christ took on human f lesh we could claim relationship to every one and each one because we all share him as brother. It is incorrect to think that only Christians are our brothers. We have reason to value and revere every one, each one and all creation. • Death happened by our choice, not God’s.

It is the result of sin. It is real. Sin has consequences despite our present world’s tendency to minimize and even deny its reality. • God is just, almighty and faithful, full of mercy and forgiveness. We should live every day in gratitude. • He has claimed us as his people and proves his faithfulness, giving us reason to live every day in hope also. These truths are planted very, very deep within us, whether we are Christian or not. Our hearts hunger and thirst for God and “will not rest until they rest in Thee,

O Lord” as Augustine of Hippo acknowledged after being freed from his life of sin. Because these truths are universal (from the one creator), many who are not Christian, who have never read or perhaps even ever heard of the Book of Genesis, have come to know them intuitively. One of the most beautiful examples of this that I have heard and appreciate is this quote attributed to Chief Seattle: “Man did not create the Web of Life, he is just one strand in it. What we do to the Web, we do to ourselves.” This is a very clear and accu-

rate way of describing the way that the Genesis account of creation tells us that we are linked to God and to one other. Someone once showed me that the word Bible could be turned into an acronym B.I.B.L.E.: Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth. So, if you are one of those people who just don’t like to read instruction manuals, take a crack at Genesis. You’ll find most everything that you need to know about what to do and how to be as you navigate our journey before leaving Earth.

City Police Department Receives Award


he City of Bonney Lake’s Police Department and its Marine Services Unit has received the Washington State “Boating Safe Educational Service Award.” The award is presented by the Washington State Parks Department and recognizes Marine Service Units that concentrate and specialize in water safety efforts. This award is given to only one Law Enforcement agency every year in the State of Washington. This year the Bonney Lake Police

Department’s Marine Service Unit (with assistance from the East Pierce Fire and Rescue) conducted over thirty water safety school assemblies in the Sumner, Dieringer and Fife school districts. These water safety assemblies reached over 7,000 students and was part of Mayor Johnson’s SwimSafe campaign.

he Bonney Lake Adopt-A-Street Program is a fun, worthwhile program that gives you, your company, school or organization recognition while saving taxpayer dollars. You can adopt a City street and beautify a part of Bonney Lake in partnership with the City. A great way to promote community pride and goodwill within your organization, and among family and friends. The City recognizes the organization’s concern for the environment with a sign that identifies the organization responsible for the cleanup of that particular street segment. Adopting a street requires litter pickup on your designated street segment (usually a minimum of a 1 mile stretch) at least quarterly over at two-year period. The City will provide a safety vest, trash bags and trash pickup. For information about the program, visit the City’s website at (Click Government/Public Works/ Adopt A Street).To talk to someone about adopting a street, call (253) 447-3101. 

Local haunted house a community favorite The annual haunted house collects donations for the Bonney Lake Food Bank By Sarah Wehmann Staff Writer


ummer is long gone now, the air is crisper and Halloween is right around the corner. And for Bonney Lake residents, Rick and Paula Leavitt that means getting ready for their annual haunted house. For the past 10 years, Rick Leavitt said, they have been doing the haunted house for the local com-

munity. “The kids and grown-ups just love it and talk about it all year long,” he said. Leavitt added that they skipped it one year and the kids were pretty sad. “We will most likely be doing it for years to come,” he said. Four years ago, they started collecting canned and dry foods as well as cash donations for the Bonney Lake Food Bank. Leavitt said they were putting so much time and effort into creating the haunted house that they thought why not give back to the food bank. “This time of the year the food bank really needs the communities help,” he said. “It’s just our way to give back a little.”

The Leavitt’s use their three-car garage to house the haunted house. He said they build walls, hallways and chambers managing to fit a lot in there. “It’s pretty scary,” he said. “We have an electric chair, monsters, clowns and zombies.” Friends and neighbors of the Leavitt’s help setup and work the haunted house, they also help hand out candy and hot chocolate. About 200 people attended last year’s haunted house and four barrels of food was collected for the food bank, Leavitt said. The haunted house this year is on Thursday, Oct. 31 from 6 to 9 p.m.

age is both cost effective and a reflection of modern communication. “Posting your Pierce County ‘I voted’ avatar to your social media accounts is the modern equivalent of wearing the sticker. Post it as soon as you vote to prompt your friends to vote. It’s also a good reminder that you can vote and return your ballot as soon as you’re ready,” said Auditor Julie Anderson. The Auditor’s Office is providing images formatted for Facebook

profile pictures, cover photos, and for Twitter avatars. These images can be found on the Auditor’s Office Facebook and Twitter accounts. Voter turnout has improved with the shift to Vote-by-Mail, but with expected turnout for the Nov. 5 election at 46 percent, the Auditor’s Office is always looking for new ways to promote voting. Ballots will arrive on Saturday and Monday. You can vote and return your ballot as soon as you’re ready. Ballot Drop Boxes are open now.

Sumner School District students drop, cover and hold Staff Writer

Earthquake preparedness is a genuine concern in the Northwest. The state of Washington experienced at least 20 earthquakes that caused damage in the last 125 years, most of which occurred west of the Cascades, according to the state’s Department of Natural Resources. Home preparation is one thing but children spend a significant amount of time at school. The Sumner School District participated in The Great Washington ShakeOut, a statewide earthquake drill, in order to prepare children and staff for the possibility of a major earthquake. The goal of the program is to provide earthquake survivors with the tools they

need for a quick and efficient recovery. The ShakeOut drill took place at 10:17 a.m., Oct. 17. Participants across the state organized a drill in which schools, families, businesses and organizations practiced the “Drop, Cover, and Hold On” technique. The technique encourages earthquake victims to drop under something sturdy, cover the head and neck with one arm and hold on to the sturdy object with the other arm. ShakeOut recommends program organizers also include other aspects of their emergency plans when participating in the drill. SSD took the opportunity to practice evacuation protocol, as well as “Drop, Cover and Hold On.” The district’s earthquake response plan includes evacuation only when nec-

experience uncompromising service.

essary. The district also urges students and staff to expect aftershocks. “Major earthquakes may happen anywhere you live, work or travel. The ShakeOut is our chance to practice how to protect ourselves, and for everyone to become prepared. The goal is to prevent a major earthquake from becoming a catastrophe for you, your organization and your community,” said a Great Washington Shakeout press release. The ShakeOut is scheduled every year on the third Thursday in October. ShakeOut registration includes access to preparedness tools, activities and information. One highlighted resource is a link to the Washington Military Emergency Management Division, which provides a tool called “Prepare in a Year.” The tool is designed “We’re honored to receive the award and look forward to another year of no drownings at Lake Tapps.” BLPD is eager to provide a fun and safe environment at the lake by continuing their efforts next year but they aren’t doing it alone, Wolschleger said. The SwimSafe coalition is a group of community leaders dedicated to water safety awareness. In addition to BLPD, sponsors include East Pierce Fire and Rescue, Pierce County, the city of Bonney Lake, Cascade Water Alliance, Dieringer School District and Sumner School District.

FILMS FROM 26 for five days in a supposed UFO encounter. Featuring one of the more realistic alien abduction scenes in film history, this film may cause fans to glance nervously at the night skies. • “The Amityville Horror” (1979): Another movie based on alleged real events, “The Amityville Horror” tells the story of the Lutz family of Long Island, N.Y. Newlyweds move into a house where a murder took place and experience strange events that have them running for cover. • “Dawn of the Dead” (2004): Several survivors of a worldwide plague that produced

I-517 allows the public to be heard By Sen. Pam Roach

Special to The Courier-Herald

Last year, Washington’s initiative process celebrated its 100-year anniversary. During that time, people from across the political spectrum have presented their reform ideas to the voters. Each of those qualified initiatives spurred a robust debate and healthy citizen involvement. Voters had the opportunity to learn more about public policy and discuss important issues with friends and family. In the end, the voters had the chance to decide. I support Initiative 517 because I believe in the citizens’ right to have a voice in their government. As chair of the Senate Governmental Operations Committee, I held a hearing on I-517 during the legislative session. During the hearing, we learned that dozens of citizen-spon-

Sen. Pam Roach sored initiatives — liberal and conservative — were blocked from a public vote even though local citizens followed all the rules. People from across Washington testified. Sponsors of local initiatives on red-light ticketing cameras from Bellingham, Wenatchee, Redmond, Longview and Monroe talked about how they were individually sued by the out-of-state red-light camera com-

panies to prevent the vote even though their measures qualified. A library initiative qualified in Renton but was initially blocked from a public vote by the city council. Two initiatives in Spokane qualified for the ballot but special interest groups sued and blocked the vote. The sponsors of an initiative to shrink the size of the King County Council were individually sued by the county, forcing them to incur $250,000 in legal costs. There were many others. All these citizens followed all the rules and qualified their initiatives but were nonetheless individually sued and had their measures blocked from a vote. Over and over again, voters were prevented from having their say. That’s why I-517 is so important. I-517’s primary policy change is guar-

anteeing you the right to vote on qualified initiatives. With I-517, if the initiative qualifies, then the voters decide. That policy is endorsed by the state Supreme Court. In a unanimous ruling, they wrote: “Because ballot measures are often used to express popular will and to send a message to elected representatives, pre-election review unduly infringes on free speech.” That’s what really moves me about I-517 – it guarantees that the people get to vote on qualified initiatives. Whether the initiative is liberal or conservative is not the issue. What matters is this: did the citizens follow the rules and collect the required number of voter signatures in the required time frame? If the answer to that question is yes, then I-517 guarantees a vote. That’s how it works with state initiatives and I-517 sim-

ply applies that same protection to local initiatives. I strongly support that. I-517 also gives everyone greater access to the initiative process. Since 1912, the number of signatures required to qualify for the ballot has skyrocketed almost tenfold, while the time to manually collect signatures has remained the same at six months. Oregon allows two years; Idaho allows a year and a half. I-517 simply matches the national average which is one year to collect signatures. More time means grassroots groups can qualify without big money. I-517 does one other thing that’s really important: it stops initiative opponents from bullying people who want to sign an initiative petition. Bullying – on sidewalks, walkways, and other public places – is becoming far too common and I-517 puts a stop to it. I-517

sets penalties for interfering with or retaliating against petition-signers. I-517 makes it safe for you to exercise your right to participate and vote. I-517 supports democracy, promotes respectful speech and stops bullying. With I-517’s protections, future generations will have the chance to have their voices heard at the state and local level on issues they care about, whether liberal or conservative. Please join me in voting yes on Initiative 517. Sen. Pam Roach, R-Auburn, represents the 31st Legislative District.

White River High graduate honored

A young visitor to Maris Farms enjoyed riding around in style Sunday afternoon, pushed through the patch with a load of pumpkins.

DeAira Handugan, a graduate from White River High School, was recently honored as the “outstanding new professional” by the Washington Association for Career and Technical Education. The award is given annually to a teacher who has shown exceptional dedication to students and the profession. Handugan received her award during the association’s conference in Yakima. Handugan teaches family and consumer sciences at Chief Sealth International High School in Seattle. Within her first three years on campus, she founded a Family, Career and Community Leaders of America Club at Chief Sealth, coached girls varsity softball, advised the Filipino Club, wrote and implemented a program for the student store, partnered with nutrition services to redesign the lunch menu and helped the community urban garden that was featured on NBC. Additionally, she has been a liaison for Ignite – a program to introduce young


women to the information technology field and provide students with job shadows and internships at Microsoft. Within her professional organization, Handugan is a public relations co-chair, organized several conferences and presented at the National Academy Foundation conference. One of her students, Dianlyn Cenidoza, said Handugan “is someone that students can easily get along which makes it easier for us to reach out to her for help; whether it be with class-related issues or personal business. She will always be there whenever someone is in need.” National Academy Foundation Coordinator C. Joanne Patrick said, “DeAira’s insight into the learning styles of her students allow her to adapt lessons to best meet the students’ needs and further engage them in the learning process. She encourages students’ participation in activities outside the classroom and is a role model for them.”
