It may be years before the town center vision in Covington becomes reality but officials hope the work put in now will pay off when development begins. Derek Matheson, Covington’s city manager, said that the city is focused on a handful of elements in the coming year that will lay the foundation for the town center project which is envisioned for the current site of Covington Elementary and ideally the 7 acre property next COVINGTON door owned by Ashton Development. A town center feasibility study is planned, a request for qualifications was put out to find a partner to develop the town center and city staff continue to move forward with the effort to bring higher education to the city. Matheson said the City Council

Managing decreased general fund revenues and a need to diversify Maple Valley’s tax base are the two main themes in the city’s 2014 preliminary budget. The Maple Valley City Council is scheduled to adopt the 2014 budget by Dec. 16. Among the stated goals of the city for 2014 are restarting the Legacy Site planning process, attract commercial growth to diversify the city’s tax base, support improvements MAPLE to Lake WilderVALLEY ness Park and Lodge, assess options for municipal court and jail services for 2015, and pursue grants for transportation improvement projects. City Manager David Johnston wrote in his annual budget message that the city’s focus in recent years has been on the general fund. Johnston noted that home

Quan has been participating in DECA since her freshman year at Kentwood and helped convince Rainey to join as well. “I just kind of jumped on board,” Quan said. “It’s a business club to help you to apply those leadership skills to the rest of life.” The tradition of the hypnotist show is what Quan said is one of her favorite parts of helping to organize it. “It’s really cool that we get to get involved with this event because it’s one of the signature events at Kentwood,” Rainey said.

It replaced a tree which was previously located on the corner of 168th and Southeast 272nd Street which the city had been lighting up since 1997 — when Covington incorporated — during the holidays. That tree came down in part to make way for construction of the road expansion needed to carry traffic to Costco but also because it was diseased and dying.

A new tree was planted less than a week after someone sawed into the community tree, a 35-foot spruce, the early morning hours of Dec. 1, 2012. “Last year’s vandalism of the community tree was an appalling and senseless act, but the community spirit that resulted really made the event more meaningful,” Slate wrote. “This year, our police department is adding additional coverage specifically to monitor the area around the community tree.”

The book, The Kindergarten Adventures of Amazing Grace, was written by a Sammamish High School student, Briana Pacelli, as part of her senior project and illustrated by her brother, Trevor Pacelli, who has autism.

OD I D Y O U K N O W ? : Tribune Company, which owns the Chicago Tribune and LA TImes, among other papers, announced a reorganization of the company’s publishing business, including almost 700 layoffs, at the end of November.

When language is not so clear

I have always been fascinated by words and usage. I can often tell what a speaker or writer doesn’t want me to know by the duck-and-dodge words and usage. Journalism is, in theory, centered on clear writing. There is an old adage that journalists should write for eighth grade readers. The idea is to dumb down the copy because people can’t understand the journalist’s big words. I think that adage is dumb. Most folks I know can read copy very well, they just don’t want to be bored or preached to by opinions masquerading as news. (Of course there are many who love opinion journalism as long as it feeds them their opinion. Suppression of the other guys’ dopey ideas is alive and growing.) What prompted this column was a news article I read about layoffs at a metro newspaper in another state. The writer quoted an executive who said the editorial reductions (that means layoffs) will come from, “non-reader-facing functions.” Non-reader-facing functions – roll that one through your brain a few times. (Careful, it may kill memory cells. The antidote is to down a tall glass of buttermilk.) Apparently that is how we be should be talking to eighth graders. Johnny, please stop acting like a non-readingpinheaded-little-puke and begin your nonmath-very-boring functions. Dennis Box Editor

If there are non-reader-facing functions are there not-non-reader-facing functions? Am I a not-non or a non? Do I want to be a not-non or a non? If you’re getting laid off are you a not-non or a non? Maybe this is all some sort of dirty talk that I am too old to understand. Could it be some sort of non-something-something function that happens when you do-something-something and that function then become a not-non? Or maybe it is secret agent code. It was placed in this news article for another secret agent. If the agent stands on one leg, holds the article upside down and sings the White Album backward the code will be revealed.

There’s nothing like a good mystery. Where is Alfred Hitchcock when we need him? I wonder if God knows what a not-non is. I bet he has to ask Mikey. “Hey, Mikey. What’s a not-non? “A what?” “A not-non?” “I don’t know. Where’s the dictionary?” “I don’t know. Why can we never find a dictionary when we need it?” I wonder if non-reader-facing function will show up in the Oxford English dictionary next year. I suspect the first definition would be clear – to duck-and-dodge and try your best to not say what you mean.

What is worth thousands of dollars, and costs nothing? Volunteers. The Black Diamond Community Center could not do any of the great work we do without the help of volunteers. For many years, every Tuesday and Thursday, Ron Brentson, LeRoy Holcomb, Vern Gibson, Sheri Potts, and Mary Ann Knarreborg show up to help serve lunch, get the seniors coffee and help them with anything they need. This past year new volunteers started helping every week. Council members Tamie Deady, Carol Benson, and Janie Edelman take time out to help Tuesdays and Thursdays. Other new weekly volunteers are Gary Farmer, Julie Jacobs, and Barbara Bretagno. Doug Ernst, our Food Bank manager, has more volunteer hours making food boxes than any of our full-time employees.

Enjoy traditions and have a relaxing holiday season season and basketball season. I’m not a sports fan, but when all three sports are on different channels at the same time, I have to wonder how sports fans get anything else done, much less Christmas shopping. I can’t imagine one would have a chance to camp out in front of a store waiting for what the commercial world is now calling grey Thursday when they are busy watching sports on TV. Of course, in the day of smart phones, ipads and other technology, sports fans can probably watch their games while camping out in front of department stores. More Gretchen Leigh

Only 15 out of 295 Washington State boards received this distinction. “As a district we’re fortunate to be guided by board members with such dedication to student achievement,� said Superintendent Edward Lee Vargas. “To be recognized for three years in a row is a demonstration of their ongoing commitment to all students.�

My kids are past the age of toys, but I try to keep these holidays stress-free to teach my kids the real meaning of Christmas. I haven’t always been stress-free during the Christmas season, because there is a lot to pack in a few weeks with tasks to do, people to visit and parties to attend. But I am surprised at how much my daughters have embraced all the traditions we have this time of year now that they are in their late teens. I always ask if they still want to continue traditions before I spend the time organizing them, they always do. It’s what makes the season magical for them.

The annual Boards of Distinction program honors school boards that demonstrate effective use of the Washington School Board Standards. The standards promote research-based governance practices that lead to high levels of student and district achievement. “Each of these boards has excelled in school governance,� said Debbie Long, president of the association. “The boards had to rigorously document how their work was making a real difference for students. They are exceptional models of effective school boards.� School boards were honored during the 2013 WSSDA Annual Conference in Bellevue.

Highlight garden plants that shine during winter months winter drama to the landscape. Transform the winter of your discontent into a season of creative adventure with fresh look at this festive season. If you are still not sold on the beauty of the winter landscape, consider what the greatest artists have taught us over the past century – from Picasso to Monet the ability to see things in a different light and admire the beauty of an impression rather than a realistic interpretation of a summer garden. Step one: Set the stage for Marianne Binetti

The Compleat Home Gardener

The first week of December is when the winter delights of the garden begins. You don’t even need to have a garden to train your eye to see the beauty of living in a climate where there is a change of seasons. Noticing just a few of the plants that shine in the winter season with bud, bark and berry will help anyone living in the Northwest appreciate the low light and short days. By using a few design tips you can highlight these same plants to add some

The lights usually twinkle on Arboretum grounds every evening through New

the winter drama Choose a site you can see from indoors while sitting cozy and warm by your fireside or an area you will pass by often on your walk to the car or front door. You can add to the stage presence of a winter garden by using the side of a building or the flat surface of a fence or even an evergreen hedge as a back drop for the winter plants. Think of this background as a surface that will offer some contrast to the colors of the plant performers. Step Two: Light the stageStage lighting will extend the show – the dark days of winter can be transformed into a gala evening perfor-

mance or “theatre of the dark” with the simple addition of outdoor lighting. December is the perfect time to add tiny white lights to a weeping cherry tree or to swaddle an evergreen in a blanket of brilliance. But think beyond just bulbs for the holiday season. Amazing new advancements in outdoor lighting mean that even the least confident “doit-your-selfers” can visit a home store and then light up the landscape in less than a day. Learn to use the drama of “uplighting” to cast the shadow of a coral bark maple against the side of the house or “downlighting” from an overhead tree

Thieves recently broke into the Arboretum’s maintenance area and stole about $1,500 worth of power cords, integral for the light display. Wahlberg said repeated break-ins since the spring have resulted in more losses, including hand tools,

While the hysteria of the early days of the disease has passed, the threat of HIV and AIDS is still very real, very serious, and not to be taken lightly. HIV is the precursor to AIDS. It’s a virus that can be contracted when the virus enters the body through the exchange of certain bodily fluids. The symptoms of HIV are similar to the symptoms of flu, and the majority of people who contract the virus do develop a flu-like illness about a month or two after the disease has found its way into the body. The chance of spreading the infection is very high during this period even though the symptoms may be mild enough to ignore. Untreated HIV will often develop into AIDS within a decade. If you’ve just found out that you have HIV, your fear about the future may make it hard for you to take action. Once you know you’re HIV-positive, see a doctor with experience in HIV and AIDS as soon as you can. With a healthy lifestyle and the right medical care, many HIV-positive people are living long, productive lives. To schedule an appointment, please call Southlake Clinic at (253) 395-1972. Our primary care providers are part of a multi-specialty physician network and are also available on Saturdays. Our multi-specialty group has a clinic in Covington at 27005 168th Place SE.

www.covingtonreporter.com • www.maplevalleyreporter.com [ PLANS from page 1] approved Burke Consulting to do the the feasibility study at its meeting Nov. 26 after issuing the RFP in August. Four responses were received. “The study’s purpose is to determine the town center’s concept ability to generate revenue and jobs and to determine the associated infrastructure costs,” Matheson said. “We’ll use that information to apply for federal and state grants that make it possible to be a good public half of a publicprivate partnership.” A partnership of this kind came up at the end of 2012 as city staff were discussing the town center project. Matheson told the Reporter in September that the success the city community development staff had in working on the Hawk subarea plan could be replicated with town center. By doing a considerable amount of the planning work up front, in theory when the Kent School District is ready to sell the Covington Elementary property, all the elements will be in place to begin moving forward to make the town center vision a reality. A request for qualifications for a potential private partner went out in

September, Matheson said, with two proposals submitted. The first round of interviews of the firms were done in October, references are being checked and another round of interviews are planned for this month. “Our hope is that we have a development partner waiting in the wings who would exercise our right of first offer to buy the Covington Elementary School property once a new school is in place then work with the city to construct private development and public infrastructure,” Matheson said. “Once we identify a partner and the council approves that partner, we’ll need to negotiate some kind of memorandum of understanding where the city grants them the ability to exercise the right of first offer and we agree to work together to try to make a development project pencil out.” In the middle of all that, city staff is also working toward bringing higher education options to Covington. In early September a group of city staff and representatives from local technical and community colleges visited the University Center of North Puget Sound located in Everett. Started more than a decade ago, the University Center partners with eight public

and private universities to offer programs in an area which was previously underserved. Bringing colleges to Covington is an idea which first came up in 2010. The city worked with MultiCare to develop a plan to bring higher education here with health care as the hook. But that concept has broadened considerably since then. Since the visit to UC Everett, Matheson said, city staff members have worked on two different tracks. “One is building relationships with the state’s six four-year public universities,” Matheson said. “We’ve met with Western and WSU. Probably next on our list will be Central and Eastern and we want to meet with UW and Evergreen State College as well. After that we want to talk to some of the private universities and some of the for profit universities.” Through those meetings and understanding the university center model, Matheson said, it is clear the next step is to develop a needs assessment. “As the name suggests it evaluates the community and surrounding areas for what higher education programs are lacking and what programs would be a good fit for us,” Matheson said. “That leads into the second

track which we’re meeting with our own legislators (of the 47th District), legislators on the house and senate budget committees and the house and senate higher ed committees to tell them more about Covington and to let them know our legislative agenda calls for a needs assessment in 2014.” Additionally, Matheson said, city officials met with the Washington Student Achievement Council that oversees higher education and would prepare the needs assessment. Matheson said he is not sure if the state Legislature will fund the city’s request to pay for the needs assessment, which is estimated to cost between $80,000 and $125,000. “It’s safe to say that it’s a heavy lift in 2014 because it’s a non-budget year and because we have our $13.2 million transportation request for SR 516,” Matheson said. “It’s hard for one community to receive more than one large request.” But, it is critical enough that the city’s lobbyists will work on it during the 60 day session which starts in mid-January. The assessment would evaluate what the right format would be for Covington whether that’s the university center concept as well as which school would

be the best partner. “In our conversations with legislators, it’s really gotten their attention when we’ve pointed out that in King County close to 50 percent of adults have a bachelor’s degree or higher,” Matheson said. “In Covington, it’s closer to 25 percent which shows that our residents need better access to higher education opportunities. We still have a median income of close to $90,000 a year which means we have a lot of residents who are in professional jobs without bachelor’s degrees.” The response from legislators, Matheson said, indicates it is worth looking into but it might be tricky in the upcoming session. “They’re supportive of decentralizing higher ed, they’re supportive of helping us pursue our higher education vision but acknowledge our request is a heavy lift in a non-budget year,” Matheson said. Still, Covington staff members and elected officials know now the potential impact bringing higher education institutions could have on the city, particularly its town center. “We have a couple of different goals here, the primary goal is higher education opportunities for our residents,” Matheson said. “But our secondary goal is

to build our town center and use higher education to build and transform that area as it has been used to build and transform other areas like Tacoma – UW Tacoma that spurred the revitalization of a very challenged Pacific Avenue.” A vision for the town center may not become reality for years and, as Matheson pointed out, will be a development which will take place over several years. But the work now could ensure that it moves forward when the time comes smoothly. Not only that, but, the work on the various elements of town center is not the only major long-term planning project going on. “It’s pretty impressive, too, because we’re doing it at the same time as the whole Hawk area subarea plan,” Matheson said. “So, we’re developing a pedestrian oriented center at the same time we’re developing an auto friendly mixed use retail district.”

Help Stem Hunger during the Holidays D

ecember marks the second month of QFC’s annual charitable giving program, Bringing Hope to the Table, to raise cash and food donations for hungry people in the Northwest. This program began at QFC in 2002 and benefits two outstanding non-profit organizations that are working to end hunger in the northwest, Food Lifeline in the Seattle area and the Oregon Food Bank in the Portland area. Between them, these organizations distribute food to hundreds of food banks, meal programs and shelters every week. In the course of a year Food Lifeline will distribute over 36 million pounds of food, or more than 30 million meals, to over 744,000 people. “Due to the continued recession and long-term unemployment, the number of hungry people in our communities continues to grow, but QFC customers are making a difference!” notes Amy Shipman, Grocery Rescue Program Manager at Food Lifeline. “During the winter months, many families make the tough decision to pay the heat bill or buy food for the table. Bringing Hope to the Table makes sure that families

have enough to eat beyond the holidays and whenever there is need.” According to Food Lifeline, “the very low income people that food banks and meal programs have traditionally served still have tremendous need and represent 53% of the people who seek food assistance in Western Washington.” Of the clients that Food Lifeline serves, 35% are children and 14% are seniors. Oregon Food Bank reports similar numbers. Children age 17 or younger make up 34% of the recipients in the households served by OFB and adults 55 and above account for 18% of their clientele. The donations that QFC collects during this two month period will help feed hungry people for several months to come. Food donations typically drop in quantity after the holidays, so the surplus donations collected now will help fill the gap until donations pick up in mid to late spring. Your cash donations are also vital to keeping the food collection and distribution operations going. They help pay operating expenses to keep the freezers running and the trucks on the road.

There are many ways in which QFC customers can help support Bringing Hope to the Table. You can buy a pre-made bag of groceries for $10 that contains dry-good grocery items. You can also purchase food bank recommended items and donate those in our donation bins. There will be items throughout the store marked with special tags to make it easy to know what

to purchase and donate. QFC will also have $1 and $5 donation cards available at the checkstand as well as $10 virtual bag donation cards. You can also donate your spare change into coin collection boxes available at your checkstand. Thank you for supporting QFC, Food Lifeline and Oregon Food Bank to help feed the hungry during the holiday season and beyond. Paid Adver tisement

[ BUDGET from page 1] development and sales as well as the development of Fred Meyer and Four Corner Square boosted the general fund, but as the city approaches residential build out those revenue streams will shrink. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If the current trend continues, the city will be faced with making fundamental changes in how it budgets for services it provides beginning in the 2016-2017 time frame,â&#x20AC;? Johnston wrote. Johnston explained in his budget message that it is critical the city diversifies its tax base in order to maintain the general fund. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Powell Development-Fred Meyer project has certainly helped the city begin to achieve the objective of a diverse revenue stream, allowing the city to weather the storm attributable to the loss of state-shared revenue,â&#x20AC;?

The general fund is running a deficit this year, although slightly less so than expected. The budgeted deficit for the general fund in 2013 was $891,550 and it is currently projected that number will come in at $321,082. Johnston attributed the better than expected number to more homes permitted than anticipated and the commercial development at Maple Valley Town Square and Four Corner Square. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The general fund is funded from different sources. We had more money coming than spending and then we were spending more money then we were bringing in annually, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what we called the deficit,â&#x20AC;?

Originally the plan was to host a battle of the bands with adult groups rocking out and judged by a group of youth musicians but a variety of circumstances led Megan Sheridan, a Maple Valley resident who recently founded Pull Together, to cancel that element and focus on the silent auction at DaVine Nov. 23. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had a great night of live music and fundraising,â&#x20AC;? Sheridan wrote in an email interview. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The community stepped up

with amazing auction items that helped raise money for tuition assistance at (Daceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rock â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; More) and support youth programs at the Greater Maple Valley Community Center.â&#x20AC;? She was particularly pleased by the turnout by members of the Maple Valley City Council, Black Diamond officials and members of the Greater Maple Valley-Black Diamond Chamber of Commerce. Sheridan formed Pull Together in an effort to support social, economic and cultural programs in Maple Valley to bring to bear all the resources in the community in order to focus them on making it a better place to live, work, shop and play. It made sense to Sheridan to partner

at home and while traveling. Temperatures are expected to top out in the low 30s and be as cold as 22 degrees at night in the Seattle Metro area. At home: â&#x20AC;˘ Insulate exposed pipes and faucets to avoid costly damage once the pipes thaw. â&#x20AC;˘ Check gas-powered generators and ensure they are in working order with

enough fuel. â&#x20AC;˘ Have salt or other de-icing material ready for drive/ walkways. â&#x20AC;˘ Clean out gutters. Clogged gutters can cause ice dams and costly damage. Use ladders with caution and consider professional help. â&#x20AC;˘ Store gasoline in approved containers only â&#x20AC;˘ Have heating appliances professionally serviced.

with Dace Anderson and Arielle Young, who run Rock â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; More, a nonprofit music school with locations in Maple Valley and Redmond. As Sheridan works to gain nonprofit, tax exempt status for Pull Together, Rock â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; More can support her efforts, while the new organization can raise money to support programs for youth in the community. Sheridan wrote that she is coordinating with Pull Togetherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board of directors to determine the next steps on the heels of the fundraiser. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are working to decide how to make the biggest impact with the money raised combined with community help,â&#x20AC;? she wrote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are working on our next

â&#x20AC;˘ Make sure you have working smoke and carbon monoxide alarm. Change the batteries and vacuum them to remove dust â&#x20AC;˘ Check on infirmed or elderly acquaintances regularly When traveling: â&#x20AC;˘ Have an emergency kit in the trunk that includes: flashlights, flares, battery jumper cables, aid kit, and tire chains â&#x20AC;&#x201C; make sure they

College lacrosse in MacIlvennie’s future

TAHOMA LACROSSE HIRES JONATHAN LEFFORTS TO COACH JV TEAM

The Tahoma Lacrosse program hired Rutgers lacrosse standout and three-sport New Jersey state champion Jonathan Lefferts as its boys JV coach. At Tahoma, Lefferts will lead the JV team while assisting second-year head coach Brian Johnson, whose varsity squad tied for third in the Division I South Sound Conference last spring finishing the 2013 season with an 8-10-0 record. “I’m excited to be a part of the Tahoma program,” said Lefferts, who was an attackman for the Big East Conference Scarlet Knights from 2010-12 after earning prep state titles in football, swimming and lacrosse at New Jersey’s Moorestown High School. “We’re thrilled to have a coach of Lefferts’ level on board,” said Johnson whose lacrosse program is adding a freshman/sophomore team this spring to accommodate the some 70 student-athletes, mostly from Tahoma High School, that play the sport at the prep level in Covington and Maple Valley.

igh school is just the beginning of Colin MacIlvennie’s lacrosse career. MacIlvennie, who lives in Maple Valley, signed a letter of intent to become a Terrapin, and will head to the east coast to join University of Maryland’s Division I men’s lacrosse team. MacIlvennie is a senior at Eastside Catholic High School, where he joined the football team for his final year of high school athletics. It was a “one and done” decision for MacIlvennie, but a timely one. The Crusaders are wrapping up a successful season which will culminate in their second consecutive appearance at the state title game. Whatever the outcome, MacIlvennie will refocus on his true passion and talent, lacrosse, when he travels with the West Coast Starz to a Florida tournament next weekend. The West Coast Starz is a premier club selecting from regional teams like the Seattle Starz, which MacIlvennie also plays for outside of the spring high school season.

Colin MacIlvennie, right, of Maple Valley, plays lacrosse for Eastside Catholic as well as football. MacIlvennie, a senior, signed to play lacrosse at the University of Maryland. He will also play for the Crusaders football team in the state championship game this weekend. Courtesy photo Bored with baseball, MacIlvennie picked up lacrosse in fifth grade. He then made it onto a U15 Team Washington team in eighth grade, which helped him recognize his potential in the sport. Entering high school MacIlvennie gained more confidence, mak-

ing varsity as a freshman. Though lacrosse may not be as popular as other sports in the area, MacIlvennie is proof that the opportunity to develop into a competitive player is still there. “It’s not nearly as big as it is on the East coast, but it’s growing exponentially,”

MacIlvennie said. “It’s really cool to see the growth of the sport throughout the state and see the talent level increase.” MacIlvennie said playing at a high level in college lacrosse does not necessarily require qualities unique to the game.

“You just have to have the dedication to do it, like any other sport,” MacIlvennie said. “You have to be a good teammate, you have to be coachable, and you have to want to get better. Sometimes you don’t really have the determination or [ more LACROSSE page 19 ]

Potential changes to SPSL 4A North division may be coming BY KRIS HILL AND SHAWN SKAGER khill@covingtonreporter.com sskager@auburn-reporter.com

With Auburn School District’s recent declaration that two of its high schools will drop from 4A to 3A in the South Puget Sound League, officials who run the SPSL 4A are considering options. Tahoma, Kentwood and Kentlake — as well as KentMeridian and Kentridge — are all members of the SPSL 4A North, which currently has nine members as does the South division which includes Federal Way and Puyallup. Dave Lutes, the athletic director for the Kent School District, wrote in an email interview that the implications of a potential move of two SPSL 4A North

members to the SPSL 3A, which is much smaller by comparison, are the subject of preliminary discussions among the league’s athletic directors. “First, the final classification numbers won’t be determined until after the second opportunity for schools to declare any opt up intentions with WIAA before Jan. 7,” Lutes wrote. “Any school opting up, drops the lowest 4A into the 3A classification. After Jan. 7 schools will be locked into their enrollment number and corresponding classification.” Lutes explained that what they do know is that Auburn and Auburn Riverside enrollment numbers are in the 3A classification realm and district officials do not plan to request an opt-up

to 4A. Meanwhile, Decatur, Federal Way, Bethel and Kentlake — all members of the SPSL 4A — plan to request to opt up despite numbers that would allow those schools to drop down to 3A which would leave the SPSL 4A with 17 schools, down one from the current total of 18. “Our main discussion is formatting 17 schools into two divisions that maintain multi-high school relationships and maintains a reasonable geographic grouping,” Lutes wrote. “Ten teams to the North — Kent’s, Federal Ways’, Tahoma, Mount Rainier — and seven teams to the South division is being studied respectively for every sport offered to determine the pros and cons of scheduling both division

and non-division opportunities and playoff entry determinations.” Still, Lutes noted, the considerations now are preliminary because it is possible that school officials could change their minds about opting up or dropping down as well as the possibility of other schools currently outside the SPSL 4A requesting membership due to changing circumstances which would affect their specific situations. After the Washington State Interscholastic Activities Association’s reclassification numbers for 2014-2016 two weeks ago, Auburn School District officials told the Auburn Reporter it is likely that Auburn and Auburn Riverside high schools will likely move from the largest school classification for sports to the classification a step below starting in the fall of 2014. The two schools would join Auburn Mountainview which competes in Class 3A.

December 6, 2013 [13]

“We’re preparing to be a 3A district,” Auburn School District Athletic Director Rob Swaim told the Auburn Reporter. “Our goal is to be together, that’s the big piece. We want to have all the schools together and grow those district rivalries.” Preliminary numbers show Auburn and Auburn Riverside’s enrollment at 1,080 and 1,200, respectively. The cutoff enrollment number for each of the state’s six classifications won’t be officially determined until the Jan. 27-28 WIAA executive board meeting. Every two years the WIAA reclassifies the state’s schools, with 66 schools allotted each for the 4A, 3A, 2A and 1A classes, with 63 schools apiece slated the 2B and 1B, this go around. Once classified, schools can choose to opt up to a higher class, which Auburn did in 2010, moving up from the 3A. Each school that opts up bumps the lowest enrollment school in that classification down

to the next classification. Schools have until Jan. 7 to opt up. Once the classifications are finalized, schools have the option to join existing leagues or form new leagues. According to Swaim, that leaves the possibility open for a SPSL 3A league featuring all three Auburn schools, as well as Sumner, Bonney Lake and Enumclaw, among others. “We want to compete with our neighbors Sumner, Enumclaw and Bonney Lake,” Swaim told the Auburn Reporter. “Hopefully, we’ll also be able to play nonleague games still and keep those old rivalries alive also, like the Taylor Trophy (contested annually by Kent-Meridian and Auburn).”

League meets start this week for boys swim BY KATHERINE SMITH ksmith@maplevalleyreporter.com

Boys swim and dive season kicks off with the first dual meets this week for Tahoma, Kentwood and Kentlake in the South Puget Sound League North. Kentwood, which went 6-2 in dual meets last year, will start off the season against Thomas Jefferson at the Conqueror’s home pool at Kent-Meridian High School. “We want to swim smarter, right?” returning coach Sharon Wright asked the swimmers as they worked on starts, turns and finishes during a practice last week. Key returners for the Conquerors this year are Kevin Molloy, Brian Wright, Logan Stoick, Dane Turnbull, Andrew Stone, Cole Hendricks, Nick Creasia, Sean Sturtevant, Blake Rizzo, Billy Thompson, Edward Quintos, and Steven Kroll. Top newcomers for the Conks include Andrew Portin, Connor Chinn, Rylan Hislop, and Liam Hauck. Senior Stoick said that one of his goals for this season is to break the 200 freestyle relay school record.

[ LACROSSE from page 12] motivation to get better, but you just always have to want to get better.” MacIlvennie had a number of college lacrosse programs to decide between includinging Ohio State University, Penn State, and University of North

Brian Wright, also a senior, said that one of the team’s greatest strengths is its depth. “We’re older, more experienced,” said Molloy, who is a senior. “We’re excited for the season to start.” Stone, also a senior, said he is looking forward to the Tahoma and Kentridge meets the most. “Kentridge has always beaten us in the past,” Stone said. “We have the potential to be really good, it would be awesome if we could beat them.” Over at Tahoma returning coach Stephen Magee and the Bears were preparing for their first meet this week against Auburn on Thursday. “We have a number of strong seniors this season,” Magee said. “We have great depth this year.” Last year, Magee’s first as the Tahoma boys coach, the team went 4-4 in the league. Captains for the Bears this season are seniors Tyler Rink, Riley Hayjek, Paul Sweeney and Nick Lawson. The captains agreed that their team goal

letter of intent and will receive a partial scholarship. “The coaches at Maryland are so great. They’re like the best guys I’ve ever met,” MacIlvennie said. “The program is really traditional, and they have always been a top notch team. I’ve always really dreamt of playing with

for the season is to improve their record and have more wins then losses this season. Rink added getting swimmers qualified for the state championship meet to his goals. “We’ve become a closer team than in years past,” Lawson said of the Bear’s strengths this season. Lawson added that his teammates’ enthusiasm and willingness to work hard is another strength of the team. “They’re all willing to give it their all,” Lawson said. Hayjek said he’s looking forward to competing against Kentridge and the rivalry with friends who swim for the Chargers. “It’s always fun swimming against them,” Hayjek said. The Kentlake Falcons have a new head coach, Jim Tanasse, this year. While new to coaching at Kentlake, Tanasse has been involved in the swimming community for 14 years. Last season the team went 3-5 in league dual meets and started off this season with a meet against Kentridge on Thursday.

This year, Tanasse said, is about rebuilding the team and creating a strong base. Top returners this year for Kentlake are Jalen Koon, Evan Eidal and Quentin Knox. Falcon newcomers to watch include Patrick Knox, Colin Bryant, Elias Knobloch, Alex Phillips, Ethan Walker and Justin Woo. The team is growing already, Tanasse said, as nine swimmers showed up for the first team meeting but now he’s up to 24 swimmers in the water and four divers. “For us, it’s definitely a rebuilding year,” Tanasse said. “Definitely very hopeful as we look toward state.” Senior Dustin Castle, who swims and dives, said that the team has, “a lot of untapped talent.” In the same vein, Eidal said he is looking forward to seeing the team grow. “The effort of everyone is really there,” Eidal said. Junior Travis Betts said that the large freshman class, and all the new swimmers, will be a big boost to the team. “It’s the new ones that will get us through,” Betts said.

my life athletically and academically, and I succeeded with Maryland.”

Food banks get bounty from Soos Creek Botanical Garden BY SUE SIMONICH For the Reporter

Staff at community food banks in Maple Valley and Auburn were pleasantly surprised with the increased volume of summer and fall produce donated by the Soos Creek Botanical Garden. In the second year of the project, Trish Bottorff and

her hearty group of volunteers planned and executed the plot, raising organically grown produce throughout the summer months. At the close of the 2013 growing season, the SCBG vegetable garden provided nearly 950 pounds of produce. Judicious use of raised beds, proper cultivation techniques and plenty of pride in their work,

helped volunteers reach their goals. Plans are already in the works for next year, when they will try their hand at growing kiwis. SCBG’s 22-acre display garden is a relatively new attraction in southeast King County, located a short drive from Maple Valley and Covington. Opening in July of 2011, an enthu-

coming soon to maple valley

siastic group of volunteers have mounted many on-site activities geared toward community service and education. SCBG is always looking for new hands and talent to help with various projects throughout the garden. The nonprofit is a great place for volunteers to learn new techniques, make friends and give back to the com-

ing

t Star

munity. The garden closed in late November, but will reopen in March. Volunteers work behind the scenes throughout the year. Watch for the spring plant sale slated for the end of May or early June. Soos Creek Botanical Garden, at 29308 132nd Avenue S.E. on Lea Hill in Auburn, is dedicated

to promoting the enjoyment, understanding and conservation of plants and the natural world along with the community’s local history through education, research and stewardship.
