numclaw native Keith Ross is the head football coach for the Sumner Spartans, and for the first time ever, he has coached his team to a perfect season. “It is hard to go undefeated during a whole season,” Ross said. “Many things have to fall into place.” Ross graduated from Enumclaw High School in 1985 where he played football, basketball and soccer. After graduating from high school, he went on to be a fouryear starter and All-American linebacker

at Central Washington University. Before returning to the west side of the mountains to teach and coach, Ross was on the Central football staff as a linebacker coach from 1995-98. Coaching the Spartans allowed Ross to be on the opposing side of the field from his coaching hero Mike Ernaga, who coached the Hornets before retiring after the 2007-08 school year. Ross’ influence in the school is unmistakable and apparent, assistant coach and

House of Representatives

2013 Session Report

31ST District

State Representative





Our local economy As we continue to, ever so slowly, recover from the Great Recession, it’s important that we recognize our personal responsibility and opportunities for improving our local economy. We need manufacturing jobs to return home to America from China. We can help that process by buying things made in America whenever possible. The exporting and off-shoring of American jobs in recent decades has led to a catastrophic decline in American manufacturing. Those jobs are starting to come back home because American consumers now realize our economic security depends on it. Equally important is shopping locally whenever possible. Small businesses are the backbone of our local economy. As your two state representatives, we receive many calls from local businesses that need help from Olympia. Several years ago, Alan Gamblin of Gamblin Chevrolet in Enumclaw called us with a problem in a state law that needed to be changed to help out Washington state’s auto industry. We made that change and helped

keep car dealerships in the 31st District from going out of business when our economy was at its worst. Earlier this year, we were contacted by Chris Lyons, one of the owners of the new Carbon Glacier Distillery in Wilkeson. It is great to see entrepreneurs and small businesses starting up again in our local towns. Chris needed some help on a state law that would make his local business more competitive with larger out-of-state and foreign companies that ship products here.

We were able to change the law to keep small businesses like his in our local towns. This will, in turn, bring more money into our local communities and create more jobs. We are

pleased this legislation, House Bill 1149, passed with unanimous support in the House and that there were only five no votes in the Senate. In recent years, we led the effort in the Legislature to reform our unemployment and workers’ compensation programs to keep large rate increases from taking place during tough economic times. Without this legislation we would have lost many jobs at a time we could least afford it. Our most important job in Olympia is listening to and working with citizens and small-business owners. Quite frankly, that is where we get all our good ideas. On November 5, the governor called a special session in the Legislature to respond to a proposal from the Boeing Company to consider a deal that could guarantee the production of the next generation of passenger aircraft, the 777X, is built in Washington state. The 31st District is heavily-dependent

on jobs in the aerospace industry. Engineering and aerospace machinist jobs at Boeing provide the livelihood for many of our friends and neighbors. Additionally, for every job at Boeing, five more jobs are created at companies that contract with the aerospace business. In 2012, aerospace revenues in Washington state totaled $51.2 billion. Securing production of the 777X in Washington state would ensure tens of thousands of additional high paying aerospace jobs for generations to come. Although there are still issues to be worked out between Boeing and its unions, both of those parties made it clear that the Legislature had to act quickly. By Saturday, November 9, we enacted legislation to provide the business environment necessary to keep Boeing manufacturing of commercial aircraft here in Washington state. We also passed a bill that made major investments in our education system that will help train the next generation of workers in the aerospace industry.

In conclusion

The government shutdown in Washington, D.C. shows what happens when the partisan divide becomes so great that elected officials forget who they are representing. Like we said last time, we believe there is a better way. We appreciate all the kind comments we received after our last newsletter. Whether its passing legislation to help a brand new business in Wilkeson or a car dealership in Enumclaw, or negotiating a new deal with the Boeing Company to keep aerospace manufacturing in Washington state; jobs, the economy and the education of our future workforce are our top priorities.

portions of our homeland and diversifying our economy,” said Muckleshoot Tribal Council Chair Virginia Cross in the release. “The tribe looks forward to managing this land for the primary purpose of long-term sustainable timber harvest, while preserving natural values including fish and wildlife habitat, plant resources and areas of cultural importance. This working forest will provide jobs and revenue for important tribal government programs now and for future generations.”

In March, King County purchased a conservation easement on the White River Forest, which is the largest unprotected forestland remaining in the county. The King County Council approved $3 million in fall of 2012 from Conservation Futures and from the King County Parks levy toward the total $11.1 million price. The easement is meant to allow the public continued recreational access to the forest for activities such as hiking, horseback riding and other recreational activities. The city of Enumclaw and the county signed a memorandum of agree-

Dunn said a letter is on the way to the tribe from King County Executive Dow Constantine and the council requesting to begin the negotiating process for the easement. Dunn said the tribe is requesting four to six months to “assess the situation. They will want to talk with the tribal members and (tribal) council.” Dunn said the county

Enumclaw Mayor Liz Reynolds said it is important, “that Enumclaw be given the opportunity to have a seat at the table emphasizing the importance of recreational access to the forested area.” Enu mclaw Cit y Councilman Darrel Dickson wrote in an email, “We are fortunate that this land has transferred to local ownership… All parties have significant recreational assets that by working

In subsequent years tribal members suffering poverty and discrimination and were often forced to selloff their reservation land to non-Indians to survive.” Cross said, “The White River Forest is an important part of the tribe’s homeland. Bringing this property into tribal ownership is the realization of a long-held goal of our people.”

together could be a showcase for tourism.” The tribe release stated, “Increasing its land base and reacquiring portions of its homeland has been a tribal priority for many years. Muckleshoot people ceded title to thousands of acres of land in the treaties of Point Elliott and Medicine Creek. In addition, United States policy in the latter half of the 19th century was to breakup tribal communal land holdings by allotting reservations lands to individual Indian families

GUNSHOTS: A report of gunshots was made Nov. 9 in the field next to the Thomas Dairy on Roosevelt Avenue. The officer found duck hunters in the field.

LIVING IN WOODS: A person was reported to be living in a wooded area near Battersby Avenue. An officer contacted the suspect. The officer checked the trail and surrounding area for others living in the area. HARASSMENT: An officer responded Nov. 12 to an ongoing dispute between neighbors.

were educators and I had some great role models at Enumclaw,” Ross said. “I decided teaching and coaching would be a fantastic career.” Ross said there is a correlation between teaching and coaching. “If you can’t teach well, you surely can’t coach well,” he said. Ross is calm, relaxed and passionate about student learning, assistant coach and Sumner High School counselor David Sandberg

“He loves the Sumner Spartan community and his commitment to Sumner High School is substantially noticeable,” Isaacs said. He wanted to be a college coach, but his wife Tracie and he decided it would be better to raise a family if he coached and taught at a high school instead, Ross said. “Both of my parents

But when he gets on the football field, Sandberg added, “He is the most intense person I have ever coached with.” Ross said he has learned a lot about patience from being a special education teacher. “His enthusiasm as a teacher motivates students to push themselves, reaching success in their classes and prepares them for graduation,” Isaacs said. Sandberg said Ross will not settle for mediocre

MALICIOUS MISCHIEF: A report of damage was made to the police department concerning a vehicle, motorcycle, front door and windows done by ex-boyfriend Nov. 8 on Davis Avenue. SUSPICIOUS ACTIONS: A resident brought from his players or from his coaching staff. Isaacs has worked for Ross’ football program for seven years and he said it is a once in a lifetime experience. “A good coach is a great teacher who takes pride in teaching all the details,” he added. Ross loves teaches but said walking onto the field after school and seeing “my boys” takes him to another place. “There is nothing like coaching,” he said.

SUSPICIOUS PERSON: A report was made Nov. 6 that a suspicious person was aiming a laser light at the reporting party on Myrtine Street. The officer checked the area and was unable to locate anyone suspicious. MAN FOLLOWING: A woman reported Nov. 6 a man was seen following her around an apartment complex on Watson Street. The officer was not able to find the man.

The atmosphere he tries to provide on the football field for his players and assistant coaches is that of a family. He enjoys working with kids that may be struggling in life and just need some guidance, he said. “He cares about his athletes after football season is finished,” Sandberg said. “He builds relationships with (them) that last a lifetime.” Not only does Ross work with the players on the field but he also cares for them off the field. Isaacs said he

focuses on encouraging the players to go from good to great young men. “His passion and love for the game of football is contagious,” Sandberg said. “He inspires players to reach their maximum potential and then pushes them past it.” Along with his passion and love for football, Isaacs added that his charismatic presence is also contagious. The Spartans’ undefeated season continued on Friday, Nov. 15 when they beat W.F. West 28-14.

The Sequel finds a new home for books and coffee Roughly 25 years ago, Ruth Klein, a retired real estate agent from Portland, moved to Enumclaw and opened a used bookstore called Railroad Street Books at Myrtle and Railroad streets. When Ruth passed away, her family ran the operation for a time, then sold it to someone else who, in turn, sold it three years ago to the current owners, Susan and Mike Lissy, who changed its name to The Sequel. Perhaps many of you have never been in the place, even though you’ve walked by it a countless number of times on your way to Rendezvous or the Day Spa. Though Susie had never operated a business, she’d always been fond of literature and trading and selling books was very appealing to her. So, while her husband was away part of each day doing whatever he did, Susie took care of the store. Actually, the business program isn’t especially complex. When a customer comes in with a used book that’s in reasonably good

Wally’s World Wally DuChateau Columnist

condition, Susan buys it for one-fourth the cover price, not in cash, but in store credit; that is, the customer can select another used book for a small fee. Though there are exceptions, Susan very rarely buys used books for cash. A few week s ago, t he whole enter prise packed up and left the Railroad Street location and moved into the space vacated by a Christian bookstore at Cole Street and Initial Avenue. Today, Susie is selling new best-sellers along with her used books and, if you want a current book that she doesn’t have, she’ll be happy to order it for you. Granted, this doesn’t seem like a particularly good time to open a first-

class bookstore. (And make no mistake, this place is first class.) Major branches of international corporations like Borden’s and Barnes and Noble are going broke left and right. Locally, Black Diamond’s Baker Street Books, Linden’s Bookstore, and the Christian bookstore have

all folded up in the last couple years. It seems like modern readers prefer their books online as opposed to hard-cover. However, according to Susan, there’s evidence to suggest that the popularity of on-line novels has peaked. After all, there’s something to be said – though I’m not sure what – for curling up on

your couch with an authentic book. Of course, Susan clearly realizes that her main business rival is Amazon. But, bearing in mind the shipping costs, she can challenge Bezos and at least keep things competitive. Her new location offers a pleasant reading

“We hope to see you at this special holiday event.”

Find silver linings among the stress

I have this friend. She’s a fitness writer; beautiful, talented, strong and a bit cheeky. She happens to be the person that hooked me up with my first writing gig several years ago, so regardless of her many positive attributes, she will always be the person who gave me a chance. Needless to say, when she speaks, I listen. A couple of years ago, about this time, she hopped on Facebook and presented a challenge: take a negative aspect of your body image and turn it into something you are grateful for. For example, “I am grateful for my legs. Even though they jiggle more than I would like, they take me to work and play every day.” It occurred to me that this theory could be Theresa De Lay applied to all aspects of Staff Writer our lives. I am grateful for the hard parts of motherhood. Anyone who knows me, knows that my youngest can be a challenge. He doesn’t eat, he doesn’t listen and he didn’t sleep more than three hours at a time for the first two years of his life. Things are different now. With a lot of patience and help from professionals, we have made breakthroughs that changed his life. He (and his brother, of course!) drive me crazy in ways I didn’t know were possible. However, amid those sleepless nights and therapy sessions, I have discovered a capacity for patience and love that I didn’t realize I had.

Recalling the universal gasp By Carol Weedman Reed Special to The Courier-Herald

Awash in adrenaline, my heart beat like an out of control train, and my stomach seized into itself. I sat stiffly in the molded plastic chair on the stage of my high school in a Maryland suburb of Washington, D.C. Though there were two rows of us about to be inducted into the National Honor Society, I felt totally alone as my thoughts careened recklessly, trying to make sense of things. I looked out across the cafeteria, now a massive rectangle of faces, divided by an aisle in the middle. Tension electrified the air as we all tried to comprehend the incomprehensible: our beloved President

Kennedy had just been shot. In the moments preceding the assembly, the intercom had interrupted our classrooms with the stunning news. We knew the President had been rushed to the hospital. We wondered: would he survive? In the unfolding life and death drama, we were desperate for more news, yet we also feared what it might be. The National Honor Society ceremony began. But how could we focus on it when our sense of reality had been catapulted into a confused state? The bullet in Dallas had shattered our sense of a safe America and left us in a wounded state of disbelief. How was our President? Rumors were that his death had been announced on the radio. Was that

true? Or just a rumor? After the names of the new members were announced, our school principal, Mr. Hernick, approached the microphone. There was a hesitancy in his usually brisk stride, and his head was bent with a downward gaze. He told us that he had decided to skip his speech. Then, seeming to gather up his nerve, he looked straight out into the room and tersely uttered the words we had hoped we would never hear: “Ladies and gentlemen, the President of the United States is dead.” A primal reaction occurred. The oxygen was sucked out of the room as hundreds of people inhaled simul-

Welcome to the Council World Welcome to Council World, newly elected City Council members! Four new people will be taking their places on the council dais in City Hall come January 2014. Since none of the four have been elected to political office before, they’re going to have a great deal to learn very quickly. Having gone through the experience myself, I’m going to paint a picture of how their world will change. They will find that their lives will be changing drastically into sounding boards, dartboards, and fish bowls. • Sounding boards: Prepare to be spending a lot more time in the supermarkets. Your constituents will

be cornering you and telling you what they think should be done on various city issues. You’ll have to become very good listeners if you aren’t already. They’ll also be asking a lot of questions they’ll expect you to know, but you don’t yet and you won’t for probably about a year and

a half. Being in elective office is like drinking water out of a fire hose. I guarantee you’re going to feel overwhelmed. The best answer for these constituents is to get their name and phone number and promise to get back to them with answers. Make a promise to call within a week after your encounter. Then keep your promise if you want to be reelected four years from now. You should start from day one to create a reputation that you care about the city and are reliable. Integrity comes from doing what you say you will do.

A small mine north of Enumclaw was located several hundred feet west of Deep Lake near Cumberland, now the site of Nolte State Park. The mine extended eastward under Deep Lake and operated from 1940-52. In 2006 the air shaft near the old fan house opened up and was quickly reclaimed by the Office of Surface Mining, the federal agency tasked with reclaiming old coal mine features.

White River rushes into 2A football’s Elite Eight By Kevin Hanson Senior Writer

The White River Hornets have blazed into the state’s Elite Eight and will be looking for a berth in the state quarterfinals when they line up Saturday afternoon against powerful Tumwater. The Hornets dispatched fellow South Puget Sound League foe Orting High by a 27-14 score Friday night in a game that marked the initial round of the 16-team Class 2A state playoffs. A week earlier, White River had run past North Mason in a West Central District contest. The Hornets and Tumwater will kick things off at 4 p.m. Saturday on the neutral – and very familiar – turf of Orting High’s stadium. Tumwater has built a storied program under longtime coach Sid Otten and this year’s squad has only built upon his legacy. The Thunderbirds have rolled to an 11-0 record, won the Evergreen League title and, in the latest Associated Press poll, are ranked No. 1 in the state. Tumwater opened state play last week with a 52-22 victory over Sehome. While the Thunderbirds were pounding a Sehome crew that finished with a losing

record, the Hornets scored early and held on late to defeat the Cardinals in Orting. Playing in cold, wet conditions, White River quickly jumped all over the Cards with a pair of first-quarter touchdowns. Workhorse Keenan Fagan put the Hornets on the scoreboard with a short touchdown run and Dustin France added a second TD when he hauled in a pass from Sean Hayes, a play that covered 44 yards. The second quarter belonged to Hornet kicker Alex Morris, who drilled field goals from 37 and 33 yards, allowing White River to enter the locker room at halftime with a 20-0 lead. Orting got untracked in the second half, scoring twice to cut the Hornets’ margin to 20-14. That was all the Cardinals could muster, however, and Fagan’s 27-yard scoring jaunt in the fourth quarter polished off the night’s scoring. Fagan put together a highlight-reel performance, rushing 22 times for 231 yards, a whopping 10.5 yards per carry. He also caught four passes for 95 yards. Hayes wasn’t kept busy throwing the football, but was highly efficient. He completed five of seven passes for 139 yards, including the long scoring strike to France.

EHS 11th in state water polo tourney The Enumclaw High School boys water polo team defeated Tacoma’s Wilson High 11-10 Saturday in the final round of the state tournament, claiming 11th-place honors. The match was contested at Curtis High School. Brandon Butler tallied six goals to lead the EHS scoring, while Bryce VanHoof and Jack Pugh added two each and Brett Butler had one.

Goalkeeper Austin Kaehn came up with 16 saves in the tourney finale. The Enumclaw crew lost to Auburn Riverside 12-9 in the second round of the state tournament, played Thursday at Rogers High School. Butler scored four times, VanHoof added three and Pugh had two goals. The Hornets had opened state play Nov. 13 at Rogers High, hitting a sour note.

The squad lost to defending state champion Bellevue 19-6 and fell to Auburn Mountainview by a 14-8 score. Against Bellevue, VanHoof had four goals and Mitchell Petellin had two. Against Auburn Mountainview, VanHoof and Pugh had three each while Petellin and Butler had one apiece. The team finished the season with an overall record of 16-15.

The White River High Hornets defeated Orting Friday night to advance in the state Class 2A football playoffs. Saturday, the Hornets will return to Orting Stadium, this time to take on Tumwater High in the round-of-eight Above, Hornet running back Cyruss Stensen picks up yardage against Orting; below, Sean Hayes registers a solo tackle.

GASP FROM 6 taneously in a universal gasp. The gasp united us in that uniquely terrible moment in time. We students left the stage and began the traditional closing ceremony. In single file, we walked down the aisle with muff led sobbing surrounding us. We each carried a lit candle. The words from the song “One Little Candle” blanketed the room, as we tried to sing along in broken voices. Yes, it was better to light just one little candle than to stumble in the dark, but our wavering f lames now seemed somehow very vulnerable. Our young and vibrant President had lit more than a little candle—he had lit a torch of enthusiasm among young people for making our country a better country and the world a better place. And now he was dead. We thought only of our President as we glanced through blurry eyes at our candles. We thought only of him as the inspiring lyrics permeated the air and our souls. The procession of

little f lames and the uplifting words were a tribute to President Kennedy, our fallen leader. In our hearts, we were honoring him in our accidental memorial service, perhaps the first in the nation. Unknown to us at the time, our little candles of hope and courage symbolized what the President’s widow, Jacqueline Kennedy, also saw as a fitting tribute to her husband. At his gravesite a few days later, her calm dignity helped steady a nation as she lit an eternal f lame in honor of her husband and his lofty vision of a better America. Now, fifty years later, the f lame is still aglow, shimmering with a steadfast hope and illuminating our longago memories in the darkened shadows of our country’s history. Carol Reed was born and raised in the Washington D. C. area. She ventured across the country, including Alaska. A resident of Enumclaw for 20 years, she is a retired teacher and counselor.

CORNER FROM 6 I am grateful for my insecurities. I don’t always feel gorgeous or fit. I’ve had two kids, both of which are still very young and there just isn’t always time to spend on hair, makeup and working out. I went through a lot of physical changes in the last six years, most of which I couldn’t control and significantly impacted my health and the way I saw myself. Those moments of insecurity, when it’s hard to see myself in the mirror, have provoked me to make changes. I took control of my appearance and well-being because I am not an insecure person and had no desire to become one. I am grateful for my learning curve. I’m a perfectionist and a touch OCD. Is it frustrating to learn the ins and outs of the news industry? Absolutely, but I relish the challenges. Every mistake I make is an opportunity to learn and a reminder that humility can be a desirable trait. I am grateful I wasn’t born in to a wealthy family. I appreciate diamonds and

designer jeans as much as the next girl but I was blessed with a family that taught me the importance of earning your place in life. Through struggle, we learn to rise up and conquer the world. Or at the very least, how to save a buck and buy a nice pair of shoes. I am grateful for suffering. It sounds strange to say but can true righteousness exist without evil? It’s devastating when something tragic happens to a person but I am overjoyed at the opportunity to see others transformed in their journey. Rape, murder, deceit, disaster – just as a Phoenix rises from its own ashes, victims have the capability to come through the end a better person and in the process, do their part to obliterate a small amount of negativity in this world. Life isn’t always easy but it’s always worth the struggle. This year for Thanksgiving, try to take one negative aspect of your life and turn it into something you are grateful for. Make a list of your biggest stressors and find a silver lining for each. It can be a challenge but then isn’t that, in itself, something to look forward to?

Happy Thanksgiving Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on the things for which we’re truly grateful. At Edward Jones, we’re thankful to serve our clients and our community. During this holiday season and every day, we wish you all the very best.

Fitness chat: gift ideas for the active crowd Dear Stephanie and Bruce: I have someone on my gift list who has started a healthy habit of physical activity. I want some ideas to support her progress. Please provide recommendations for something that she may Stephanie Norton-Bredl like and find helpful. Michele, age 42 Dear Michele: You are truly a dear friend for wanting to buy a gift that will bring lasting joy for others. Gifts which promote health and wellness benefit the receiver and all of the family and friends of this special person. It reminds us of the movie “It’s a Wonderful Life” and how George Bailey

learns that he made a significant impact on the lives of others. There are so many fitness gadgets and gear that a person can buy; however, we favor the smart and practical Bruce deJong choices. Here are a few to consider: 1. The Fit Bit. The Fit Bit is an electronic activity counter that measures steps, distance and calories. It is simple to set up and it automatically sends data to your computer, tablet or smart phone. The also have a model that tracks your sleep patterns and provides data on the quality of your sleep. We know several people at the

YMCA who report that the Fit Bit has kept them motivated to seek physical activity on days when they needed a nudge. Expect to spend $60 to $130 depending on the features. 2. A heart rate monitor watch. A heart rate monitor watch measures heart rate information. Actual heart rate information is a more accurate indicator of the intensity of exercise rather than perceived exertion. Many of the heart rate watches require a heart rate strap with a sensor that sends heart rate data to the watch. The strap is worn on your chest, similar to a belt and may necessitate a few days of use to find the right fit. Expect to spend $50 to $150 depending on features. 3. A running watch. A running watch is

a digital watch that has a stop watch and lap counter. There are also models that track distance and pace for walking or running through a GPS link. Expect to spend $40 to $500 depending on features. 4. A yoga mat. A yoga mat is a great gift for those who participate in yoga or Pilates and those who actively stretch at home or at the gym. Having your own mat expresses individuality and mitigates the spread of bacteria. Expect to spend $20 to 40 depending on style and brand. 5. I-Tunes gift card. One of our favorite to be used for buying music to work out to, or an inspirational movie or book. We hope these suggestions help you give the perfect gift. Best wishes for your success.

Heading home for holidays can spark allergy troubles

and Immunology has put together tips to help you understand what can trigger your symptoms when returning home for the holidays. • Even if you’ve never before had a problem with your grandma’s cat, you may find yourself suddenly sneezing and wheezing. These sudden symptoms are known as the Thanksgiving Effect, which earned its name after visiting relatives and college students, head-

ing home for holiday breaks, suddenly noticed an allergic reaction to their pet. Allergies can strike at any age, meaning being a houseguest in a pet’s home can be bothersome. If you notice you are having an allergic reaction, ask the host to keep the pet away from where you will be sleeping. Be sure to take your allergy medications and wash your hands immediately after petting your new furry friend. • Pass the sneezy pudding - Festive feasts

are a staple of this time of year but they can contain several health hazards if you have a food allergy. Be sure to check ingredient labels and don’t be afraid to ask your loved ones how the meal was prepared. • If you find yourself sneezing around the Christmas tree, wreaths and garland, you might be allergic to terpene. • Before you travel home for the holidays, pack wisely. Be sure you take along allergy medications or schedule an appointment

This little boy knew such joy because he had gratitude. The author Max Lucado describes gratitude as being “more aware of what you have than what you don’t. Recognizing the treasure in the simple – a child’s hug, fertile soil, a golden sunset. Relishing in the comfort of the common – a warm bed, a hot meal, a clean shirt.” Every November with its Thanksgiving holiday season reinforces this idea for me – that what is really important are not the material things of life, but rather good health, friends and family, especial-

But these are tears of joy and laughter, not of sorrow or pain.

When it comes to having a fiery personality plus a great figure the Blood Good Japanese (Acer palmatum var. atropurpurea) is the go-to small tree for growing in a lawn or as a background tree in the corner of a small yard. Easy to find at area nurseries, the red summer foliage turns fiery orange every autumn and at 15 to 20 feet tall, this is one tree that won’t outgrow its welcome after planting. All Japanese maples do best when protected from the hot afternoon sun and

Look for grafted Japanese maples with the distinctive waterfall form if you want to enjoy all the glory of these beautiful trees without the height. Grafted Japanese maples do especially well in large containers and are perfectly happy in a half whiskey barrel for a decade or so as long as you remember to keep the soil moist. My favorite bedmate for these weeping maples is to pair them up with the winter blooming Snowdrop

Jean (Bock) Jensen

Jean was born Mary Jean Potvin in Wenatchee, Washington, on 10/27/30, to parents George and Mary Potvin. During her early childhood, Jean’s family lived in Eastern Washington while her father worked on Grand Coulee Dam and held various other jobs. The family moved to Enumclaw in 1939 when her father took a job working on Mud Mountain Dam. Jean spent her remaining school years in Enumclaw and graduated in 1949. On 11/26/49 Jean married Ray Bock, also of Enumclaw and they raised 5 children. In 1960 Jean & Ray bought a “mom & pop” business on Roosevelt where Runland’s Grocery sits today. They ran Bock’s Grocery & Service for 10 years. Jean also drove a school bus for Enumclaw from 1965 – 1979 and enjoyed the kids on her route. She was always known as a good cook and in 1979 decided to give up bus driving to chase her dream of owning and operating a restaurant. She renovated The Sweet Shoppe in Buckley and opened in 1979. It quickly became the lunch hot spot in the area, known for its home style, quality food. Jean & Ray were divorced in 1981. In 1982 Jean sold The Sweet Shoppe to take over a larger restaurant in Kent, WA with Ron Jensen, also from Enumclaw. Despite their best efforts, they could not overcome its past reputation. She returned to school bus driving for Puyallup until 1987 when she had to take back The Sweet Shoppe. Jean and Ron were married in 1990. She quickly restored the restaurant to its former glory before selling the business and building to retire in 2001. Jean had a love of dolls and collected them all her life. Being a good seamstress, she would make her own doll clothes and began to make leather shoes. She turned one bedroom of their Buckley home into a doll shoe factory. Her doll shoes became well known for their quality of workmanship and she sold them via the internet all over the world. Jean made many special friends in her doll clubs and with online customers. Her last year was spent at Cedar Ridge senior community in Bonney Lake. She continued her shoe making there and enjoyed her many friends and pinochle group. Jean, our loving mother and dear friend to many, died on 10/24/13 from liver failure. She was preceded in death by her parents, younger sister Diane Leach and second husband Ron Jensen. She is survived by her sister Marjorie (Midge) Kurfurst, her five children; Dave Bock, Tim Bock, Fred Bock, Nancy Bock, and Suzanne Sidhu, their spouses, 8 grandchildren, 8 great grandchildren plus 7 stepchildren and their families. A memorial and reception will be held Sunday, 11/24/13, 3:30 PM at the Buckley Eagles. Memorial donations could be made to the Buckley Youth Center, PO Box 1960, Buckley, WA 98321.

Picking a holiday tree? There’s a lot to consider The Evergreen Arborist

It seems merchants are trying to move up the Christmas season each year. With Thanksgiving lurking around the corner, plastic trees are already being displayed in stores. However, America’s Christmas tree farmers are planning for the “real” Christmas season. They produce a true green product that will create local jobs, is grown on plantations in the USA and is recyclable. Puget Sound Christmas tree farmers and local retail lots will be offering a wide variety of species. To help select your favorite tree, the characteristics of the more popular species are listed below. Douglas fir: This tree is generally available as a sheared tree and is the most common species found on tree lots. It has a nice fragrance and a medium-togood shelf life. Because of the thick, bushy crowns, they do not lend themselves to large or heavy decorations. Noble fir: This species is considered the “Cadillac” of Christmas trees. It grows in a more open pattern, has stout branches, luxurious green needles, a long shelf life and has a nice fragrance. It is popular with families that have large or heavy ornaments. It is the most expensive tree because it takes eight to 10 years to mature and is the most difficult species to grow. Grand fir: This sheared tree is the most

fragrant of the native species. It has an attractive needle that makes it a popular choice as a flocked tree. Fraser fir: This North Carolina native has strong branches that will hold heavier ornaments. The needles have a pleasant fragrance and a long shelf life comparable to a noble fir. Norman fir: This imported species is gaining popularity with local growers. It very closely resembles noble fir, but is easier to grow. It has all the desirable attributes of nobles and requires eight to ten years to reach the popular 6 to 7 foot height. Where to Find Trees To enjoy a fun experience with the family, visit a local choose and cut farm. Locations and tree information can be found on the Puget Sound Christmas Tree Association website, Many nurseries, stores and charity groups will offer trees at retail lots. Proper Tree Care Once home, cut one-quarter inch off the butt and place the tree in a water stand. The stand should be large enough to hold at least one gallon of water after the tree is placed in it. Check the water level daily. A typical 6-foot tall tree can drink one gallon of water each day and remain fresh for two to three weeks.

As fall gradually gives way to winter, vehicle owners often sigh at the thought of driving in winter weather or spending weekday mornings clearing their vehicles of ice before heading to the office. But manning the wheel through another snowstorm or whittling away another night's worth of ice from a car's windshield are not the only rites of passage motorists must endure as cold weather returns. Winterizing a vehicle can improve vehicle performance during a time of year that, in many locales, can be especially harsh on automobiles. Low temperatures make for less than ideal conditions for engines to run, while potholes left behind by snow plows can damage a vehicle's wheels and may even result in flat tires and a damaged suspension system. In addition, salt used to improve traction on roadways can cause rust. Short of moving to a locale with mild winters, there's little drivers can do to protect their vehicles from harsh winter weather. But winterizing a vehicle can prevent some of the more common issues drivers may encounter when the temperatures dip below freezing. * Take time out for your tires. Winter weather can limit traction, putting the safety of drivers and their passengers in jeopardy. When possible, avoid driving in the snow, and steer clear of roads where ice and black ice are known to form. * Consider a low-viscosity oil in the winter. The owner's manual of your vehicle may recommend you use a lower viscosity motor oil to counter the dip in temperature that's synonymous with winter. When the temperatures outside fall, the oil inside your vehicle thickens, and a thicker oil won't circulate through the engine as well. This can cause engine problems because the engine won't be adequately lubricated. A low-viscosity oil is naturally thinner, so it may improve lubrication throughout the winter. The vehicle owner's manual should recommend oils based on climate. If not, talk to your mechanic about changing from the oil you use throughout the year to a low-viscosity alternative during the winter. * Inspect your vehicle before winter arrives. No one wants to be out on the road during the first snowstorm of the year only to discover certain components are not working properly. Belts and hoses, while durable, can be put through strenuous conditions during the winter months, so a close inspection of belts and hoses should be conducted in late fall. In addition, windshield wipers are especially important in winter, when snowfall can drastically impact visibility. You will want your wipers working at full capacity once the winter begins, so replace older wipers (shelf life for standard wipers is typically one year) and use a de-icing windshield washer fluid to maximize visibility. * Don't be caught off guard. Part of winterizing a vehicle is being prepared if the vehicle breaks down. Make sure you have extra washer fluid in your vehicle's trunk, and don't forget to include an ice scraper, snow brush or even a snow shovel in the trunk as well. A snow shovel may be necessary if you need to dig your car out if it's been buried somewhere other than your driveway. Other items to carry in your trunk include a blanket, a change of clothes, an extra hat, an extra pair of gloves, some nonperishable food, and a few bottles of water.

Throw all the chips and condensed milk in a medium sauce pot on medium low heat. Stir constantly with wooden spoon. Blend mixture together (smooth with NO clumps). Once desired texture is reached add cinnamon, nutmeg and brown sugar. Mix well. With the parchment paper in the cake pan, pour the mixture into the pan.

Superintendent’s Message Dear Families,

I often wonder what parenting would be like without cell phones. I loved knowing when Hans and Anna were out seeing a movie or doing something fun with friends that we could always text or call them. I also loved that they could call us! I don’t know how my parents were able to let us go out, only making sure we had a quarter in our pocket to use the payphone. Do our children even know about payphones? I love this real time communication. As a school system, we are attempting to become better at providing parents with good, real time data about the progress of their child. My parents used to only receive information about my educational progress when report cards were distributed and during conferences. We still have these two structures in place in our system with conferences occurring in the next few days, but we also have a wonderful, electronic system that parents can access 24/7 to review information on their children. On our Family Access system you can see: • Attendance • Lunch account information • Current grades/missing assignment • Discipline If you have not signed up for Family Access, you can fill out the form located on our Enumclaw School District website. In addition to Family Access, each teacher has a Swift website where they post information about their class schedules and homework assignments. Both Hans and Anna really appreciated this feature when they were students. The Swift websites for teachers can be accessed directly from the home page on our website. http://www.enumclaw.wednet Happy Thanksgiving to you and your families! In Partnership with YOU!

Board Chooses To Run Two Levies This year has been an interesting one for education in the state of Washington. We have seen our legislators grapple with a ground breaking court decision that changed the funding of education and resulted in the recovery of some of the cuts our students and staff have experienced since 2008. Our economy seems to be in recovery and state revenues are projected to improve. As you are probably well aware, it is election season once again. In serving the families of Enumclaw and Black Diamond, the Board of Directors has tried to be very responsible and thoughtful about the needs of our students and their families. Those needs are not simply tied to academics; there is a larger scope of values at work within any community and Enumclaw and Black Diamond are no different. We know that our local families understand value, whether we are talking about the price of groceries or a home in which to raise your children. In 2009, voters generously approved the first ever Instructional Technology levy to provide our students and staff with modern technology in Enumclaw School District classrooms. The voter approved levy funds provided badly needed upgrades to building infrastructure to support new technology and hardware. These upgrades have delivered a 21st century classroom experience to your children and grandchildren. We hope to continue to provide this value for your family as we educate them to succeed in an ever changing world. This February, the Board of Directors will be requesting voter approval to maintain the generous support that this community has consistently demonstrated for a good value in education. There will be two levies for your consideration. A “replacement” Maintenance and Operations Levy and a “continuation” Instructional Technology Levy. The Maintenance and Operation levy will be needed for continued funding of approximately twenty percent of the district operating budget. The replacement M&O levy is crucial for continued day to day operational funding and does not represent any increase in taxes above current levels. The Instructional Technology levy will fund the continued use of technology in our schools as well as improvements such as online text books and software that will advance students’ access to the latest information, delivered right to the classroom. The Enumclaw School District Board of Directors, administrators and staff are committed to providing continued value to you and your family. We can and will advance the quality and value of educational opportunities available to students in Enumclaw and Black Diamond. Our partnership with you is crucial to the continued success of our students. Corey Cassell (Board President), Tina McGann, Nancy Merrill, April Schroeder, Chris VanHoof

What Does Patriotism Mean To Me?

Upcoming Events November & December When

A poem montage written by EMS students Leah Blanchard, Victoria Richardson, Logan Breidenbach, Matthew Helmer, and Gabrielle DeMarco Leah: What does patriotism mean to me? In jungles and deserts and mountains, from the deepest oceans to the tallest peaks, different countries flourish all over the earth. But there is one nation in particular that has won my love and devotion, a country which prospers due to patriotism: the United States of America. Victoria: Patriotism is the true love and respect from within the heart that our soldiers have. It is a connection with our land and the beings that live here, a connection with the customs, tradition, pride in its history and devotion to its welfare. Willingness to defend our homeland shows the true patriot spirit. Logan: Patriotism means not only being satisfied, but wanting more for your country. Patriotism is tears when 9/11 happened even though we are far away in Seattle, WA. It’s sadness about the Sandy Hook Elementary tragedy even though you don’t know anyone from that city. But you mourn the loss of your fellow countrymen because we are one nation. Matthew: Being a veteran means you love your country so much, that you’d defend it, even at the cost of your life. But patriotism means you love it and are devoted to your country, even if your life isn’t on the line. Anyone can be a patriot. Gabrielle: Patriotism is found in people of every religion, creed, gender and color. The dates on their graves show patriotism is found in people of every age, willing to stand, fight and defend the country they love. It is a feeling. I feel it as I watch the graves lined up side by side as the red, white and blue flags next to them wave violently in the strong winds. It’s rain dripping off of gravestones like tears rolling down a soldier’s face as he stares into the face of a friend who won’t be coming home. I feel it when I stand at attention in a parade, watching veterans proudly march by. These are the people who have risked their lives for us. I feel it inspire me to voice my beliefs, stand for my country and protect my liberty. Matthew: A country prospers because of its patriotism. Everyone cares for the sake of the country. So, to me, patriotism is what makes a country, a country, and what lets it succeed. Logan: Most of all, it is waving the 50 stars and 13 stripes high above your head and letting everyone know you are a proud American, ready to defend, love and support your country. Victoria: Patriotism inspires hearts for noble and good deeds. Patriots rejoice in the glory of their country. They can truly say, “I love my country, and I’m proud to show it!” I feel the love for our nation fill the air with a sense of connectedness, keeping families motivated and strong. It’s the foundation filling our country with a much deserved sense of pride. Leah: I find that people demonstrate patriotism without even knowing it. It is the small everyday deeds that people do for each other. These actions build trust, and when we trust each other we can accomplish so much more. It creates a commitment and a passion that makes us stronger. This is America. The land of the free, the home of the brave. This is love, devotion and loyalty at its best. All: And that’s what patriotism means to me.

Tips For Planning Beyond EHS For those of you who are thinking about or currently involved with your student in the beyond EHS transition process, here are a few things that you might find helpful in preparing your student to make an informed decision about his/her future: • Start researching now! It’s never too early to look into colleges and technical schools. Use search engines to help pick out institutions that might have your interest in their programs. Visit their websites, and if possible, take a campus tour. These are always free and give you and your student a good “feel” for the kind of school they are looking at. • Find out any prerequisites that your student will need to be accepted into a university, tech school, apprenticeship or the military. What entrance exams do they require? Is there an interview process? Are their course requirements, such as, how many years of foreign language they need? These questions can help you plan their high school path, which often needs to be started much earlier than their senior year. • Find out about financial aid at the institutes you are looking at. Often their websites will show how much financial aid most freshmen will receive on average. Do they have early admission? This can sometimes open up opportunities for your student to apply for more scholarships. Visit the FAFSA website and attend a financial aid planning workshop locally. Seniors file for financial aid after January 1st. • Have you looked into scholarships? Did you know that there are scholarships out there for middle school students? You just need to start the search. Make a profile on a scholarship search engine online and they’ll start sending scholarships that match up to your student. Apply for as many as you can! • Is your student planning on taking the SAT or ACT? These are tests required by most colleges and universities. Most juniors begin taking them in the spring of their junior year. Also, juniors have the opportunity to take the PSAT in October each year as a “pre” SAT score base. Encourage your sophomore or freshman to also take the PSAT. • How do colleges want you to apply? Do they use “The Common App,” the generic application that you can send to more than one college, or do they have their own? • Be sure your student accesses the College and Career Center at EHS. There they’ll find the latest information on scholarships, colleges, careers, as well as helpful resources for whatever path your student may choose. Follow them on twitter @EHS_Career_Ctr . Also, check out their Swift website • Some prestigious universities ask for a high school’s profile. This profile contains specific data points that universities are looking for. Our Enumclaw High School profile can be accessed in the EHS Main Office, through our EHS Counselors or downloaded from our district website. Our desire is that all of our students find incredible success upon leaving our system. We will continue to seek ways to connect students and families with opportunities to learn what is available after Enumclaw High School!

the city and will be quick to tell you. The more aware citizens will be asking you questions that will require you to think critically and creatively, neither of which is easy and both require a lot of effort. You will have

to learn to think on your feet. Be careful what you say in council meetings because it is being televised. It will be remembered and thrown back at you by your future opponent four years from now. The things you say will


Voters are hungry for that kind of politician. Don’t make promises you can’t or won’t keep. You may have

done that to get elected, but now is the time to stop and tell the truth. • Dartboards: Don’t expect to get a lot of praise on how the city is run. Most of your constituents will notice the negative things about likely be taken out of context, but, as I said, that’s Council World. • In a fish bowl: For the next four years your privacy will be diminished. People will watch you and listen to your every word. Your life will become an open book. You have now become an authority figure and, as one, you will be both respected by some and distrusted by others. America was founded by dislike of having government leaders in Britain telling them what to do. You have now inherited that mantel and you will wear it with discomfort. If you drive too fast and get stopped by a police officer, your situation changes. Your new office will cause people to view you from a different perspective. That could either be a benefit or a detriment, but as time passes and you internalize your role ever more deeply, you will

become more aware of your difference in people’s eyes— you are a politician with all that word’s multifaceted meanings. You will become more calculating and you will weigh your words, both spoken and written, very carefully. You will also try to figure out the perspectives of the people you talk with, to avoid saying something that is offensive. You will truly be living in a fish bowl. Get used to it. Newly elected officials, I’ve introduced you to Council World. For the next four or more years you will be living in that fish bowl, becoming both a sounding board and a dartboard. No matter what happens to you, you will be changed by that experience, and you will never see your world in the same way again. Be prepared to be not only challenged, but also exhilarated by your experience.
