City Council to consider sign code adjustment

Looking back at the top stories of the year

The Maple Valley Planning Commission unanimously voted to recommend amending the city’s sign code to the City Council, specifically permitting businesses and civic and community events to have one A-frame or A-board sign. The amendment was put before the commission in early November by city staff and the commission took comment during a public hearing Dec. 4. The amendment will be put before the City Council in 2014 for approval. Currently A-board signs are not permitted in the city. John Strandberg, senior planner for Maple Valley, wrote in an email that the amendment to the code will create equality for businesses and events in regards to use of A-board signs and will create a new sign category, por[ more CODE page 2 ]

As this is the last issue of the Covington-Maple Valley-Black Diamond Reporter for 2013, it seems appropriate to reflect on the biggest stories of the year, the ones which generated the most comments on the website, the most views, the most shares on Facebook, the most letters to the editor and the most conversation in the office. They are presented in no particular order. All these stories have a ripple effect on the community in some way, whether about an issue, an election or an individual. With that, we ring out 2013 and greet the new year of 2014.

Christmas celebration brings joy to foster families BY KRIS HILL khill@maplevalleyreporter.com

It looked like any other Christmas party as families celebrated together at the Greater Maple Valley Community Center. But the gathering meant so much more than activities, Christmas carols and telling Santa Claus what was on the wish list this year. Children wrote letters to Santa, opened gifts, ate, laughed and played Dec. 19 during the second annual Foster Family Fun Night at the Greater Maple Valley Community Center. Ruth Pomerantz, a foster mother who lives in Maple Valley, explained the significance of the event.

“This tells my family that we’re important, that the community cares about foster families, that we’re not alone,” Pomerantz said. That people care enough to sow into the foster care families and the foster kids.” Dozens of families in Maple Valley, Covington and neighboring communities provide foster care to children including short term care that is a day or two or long term care which can last months or even lead to adoption. Kim Emmons coordinated the event for the first time a year ago after she took in a foster child, to ensure that all the foster children in the area received shoes for Christmas. Emmons discovered the Fostering Together group,

who were rescued in another part of the country and would need to go into the foster system. But, Pomerantz said, she wasn’t sure if that would be the best fit for their family at the time. She talked it over with her husband, whom she said has a heart for children, particularly those in the foster care system, and he agreed to sign up. They were licensed five years ago. They knew they wanted to do short term care, Pomerantz said, and they would not want to adopt. “We found out that there was a huge need for what we did,” Pomerantz said. “A lot of the children we take are under age 3, and within a week they go back to their homes or they go to other long term care. And a lot of foster parents don’t answer the calls in the middle of the night.” Over the years, Pomerantz and her family have taken in more than 140 children, which is no [ more FOSTER page 2 ]

Sarah Parker-Johnson, a foster mom who lives in Covington, said she wishes a group like this existed when she first started taking children in 15 years ago. Parker-Johnson is also intimately familiar with the foster care system. She grew up in an orphanage after she was taken out of her home as a small child after suffering severe abuse

— she spent nine months in the hospital. “During the time I was in care I realized I wanted to work with children,” Parker-Johnson said. “I actually got into foster care on accident, I was helping out a family member who told me I needed to get licensed.” Since she first started fostering, Parker-Johnson

along with her husband, fostered more than 50 children and adopted seven. Her husband died a few years ago and since discovering this Fostering Together group, the support the members provide one another has been particularly important to ParkerJohnson. “I love it,” Parker-Johnson said. “I have only been

back for a few months and they welcomed me like I was a family member. They’ve really made Christmas very special for my girls. It’s really a wonderful group. Lisa and Kim, all of them, they’re really just so wonderful.” And those couple of hours at a Christmas party, which was all about family whether the child was a

foster or biological, were also meaningful. “They get to see that they’re not so different, that there are other kids who are going through the same thing,” Parker-Johnson said. “A lot of kids, they’ve moved around a lot, and they’re lost … there’s this whole community who, they find out they’re not the only ones.”

veloped collaboratively in 1997 with local businesses and adopted in 1999. There was one attempt to update the code in the mid

2000s but that effort stalled in 2008. During the summer the city stepped up enforcement of its sign code much to the frustration of business owners.

The city’s attention was drawn to the issue of out of compliance A-boards and other non-compliant signage throughout the city’s commercial areas after several complaints were re-

ceived, City Manager David Johnston said in June. “We’ve never not enforced our sign ordinance,” Johnston told the Maple Valley City Council at the June 10 Council meeting. Business owners reported receiving letters about

out of compliance signs and some said they saw a drop in business when they had to take their signs down. Strandberg wrote that the city decided to take another look at the code, “partially due to recent court cases and citizens’ requests.”

responders at all manner of emergencies for more than seven years. Volunteers from the nonprofit traveled to help Hurricane Katrina victims, to southwestern Washington after flooding, and to Southern California to feed firefighters during wildfires there as well as New York City after Super Storm Sandy pounded the Eastern seaboard. Riffle said he spoke to Passarelli on the phone in recent weeks — her plate was full with a recent response to the death of a law enforcement officer in Oregon as well as an appearance in September on the Queen Latifah Show — to let her know the Soup Ladies were chosen as the beneficiary of the 2014 coupon book sales at the Covington location. He also wanted to make sure she knew he hoped to bring in even more money for the Soup Ladies this year. “What we found last year is that as people would

come in, they would see the charity that we were supporting and they would connect with it instantly,” Riffle said. “I think if more people are aware of it this year … hopefully we would get even more support. I think the community seems to resonate more with the Soup Ladies … ultimately this about a fundraiser and getting to the funds to that charity so it’s a worthy cause.” Riffle added that when he spoke to Passarelli she was excited about the support. For the Soup Ladies, it means there is that much more money in the bank when it is time to roll out. Typically the volunteers from the group drop everything to feed first responders at a scene and last-minute travel can be pricy. Knowing what the Soup Ladies do and the help they provided over the years, Riffle said, makes it easier for staff to sell the coupon books. “Last year it was inter-

KING COUNTY LIBRARY SYSTEM BIDS FAREWELL TO DIRECTOR The Trustees of the King County Library System bid farewell to longtime Director Bill Ptacek, who has led KCLS since 1989. Ptacek has been named CEO of the Calgary Public Library in Alberta, Canada effective Feb. 1. During his 25-year tenure, Ptacek’s vision for technology and collection management kept KCLS in the forefront of public libraries nationally. Continual innovation, including up-

grades to computer-based data and materials handling systems, public computer access, and organizational and library staffing models enabled the King County Library System to stay ahead of the curve and provide seamless service through both economic booms and downturns. Under Ptacek’s leadership, KCLS experienced unprecedented growth as King County’s population and economy expanded and local municipalities voted to join the library system.

PARKINSON’S DISEASE Parkinson’s disease is a progressive disorder that has gained a lot of attention in the past decade or so since several very famous people, including Michael J. Fox and Muhammed Ali, have publicly shared their battles with the condition. Parkinson’s disease is a problem that affects the nervous system. Although it develops rather slowly, in patients diagnosed earlier in life, like Fox, it tends to progress more quickly. Often a scarcely noticeable tremor in the hand is the first sign of Parkinson’s, usually around or after the age of 60. As of yet, there is no cure for Parkinson’s disease. Medication, however, can help with symptoms, and on occasion, brain surgery can improve symptoms. Managing Parkinson’s disease can be a challenge. Good nutrition is one of the most important parts of a successful Parkinson’s disease management strategy. Proper nutrition can reduce the risk of four common reasons for hospitalization among people living with Parkinson’s disease: bone fracture, dehydration, bowel impaction, and weight loss.

OQ U O T E O F N O T E : I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear. - Nelson Mandela

A letter from South Africa Guest Columnist

All of us struggle between the desire for stability and the desire for change. Some favor stability and order above all else. Others are dissatisfied with the status quo and want to improve conditions for themselves and/or others. I write to you from the home of my daughter Betsy and her family in rural Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa, where I see these two forces at work. Recently, Betsy and her family took us on a tour of the Champagne Valley in the Drakensberg Mountains. We were mainly among whites who were on holiday, since it’s early summer here. The area is beautiful and green with luxury resorts, dams and spectacular views of the mountains and fine buildings. These people enjoy their stability because, for them, life is good. Nearby Loskop, a Zulu community of about 50,000, has a 40 percent AIDS infection rate. Poverty is endemic. Until recently, few had electricity and running water usually comes from a faucet outside among the houses. There is little furniture in their homes. They live in small mud huts. There is no way most Zulus will ever be able to afford to take advantage of those resorts except, perhaps, as employees. South Africa has the greatest income disparity in the world. This is the “stability” that these blacks encounter. Betsy, with the help of local Christians, aid from the U.S. donations and nonprofit contributions, now pays salaries to 20 full-time, homebased care workers (who make $150 a month), a few part-timers and a part-time nurse to care for

In 1969, Apollo 11’s voyage to the moon ended the space race and captured the imagination of billions but it is what we confirmed when they returned that truly astonished. A perfectly accurate clock was sent into space with the crew, while another, equally accurate clock remained on Earth. After the eight day voyage, the clocks were found to be 2.779 billionths of a second off. While this would seem irrelevant to most, and certainly never made any headlines in a time when man had just finished landing on another world, but the fact confirmed Einstein’s Theory of Special Relativity, which stated that as one moved faster, time

For these people, change comes in fits and starts. The contrast between the rich, primarily white world and the poor blacks is stark. Since I come from the West, I’m more comfortable with the white stability, but when I see the endemic poverty and suffering, I wish for even half that stability for the blacks. Nelson Mandela was recently buried in the Eastern Cape, about 900 miles to the west of where I am writing this. He was one of those few great leaders the world gets every generation or two. Today we will visit the place where Mandela was captured. We will spend Christmas

near Cape Town. We will also visit where Mandela lived after he became the president of the Republic of South Africa. Mandela was a change agent who also brought greater stability to the lives of blacks, Asians and minorities without taking away the financial stability of the whites, a remarkable accomplishment. One reason I travel is so I can shake myself out of the comparably stable world in which I live and to remind myself that on a personal level others are not as fortunate as I. Being reminded of that challenges my complacency. It reminds me that for the privileged few, change is necessary to bring stability to the many who suffer poverty and want. Why not have “life is good for all,” not just the privileged few?

in their area slowed down. Scientists predicted that the Apollo 11 launch would distort time by 2.78 billionths of a second, which was almost exactly borne out by experiment. When two cars side by side are traveling at 40 miles per hour, neither moves ahead of the other, despite the fact that both are moving. If one of these two cars were to move at 80 MPH, we would expect them to be 40 miles apart after an hour. While logical, this idea proved invalid for light. Albert Einstein realized that no matter how fast one went, light always moved ahead at the same speed, as if one was not moving at all — it would be as if the car moving 80 MPH were always 80 miles ahead of you after an hour, whether you were standing still or moving 79 MPH. Despite skepticism, numerous points of evidence convinced scientists worldwide that Einstein was right. The only possibility, then, was that time itself were changing “speed.” The car moving 40 MPH sees the faster car pulling ahead of it, and at the end of an hour notices that the car has travelled 40 miles ahead of it. A man sitting still when the cars started moving also watched the cars for an hour, but observes that the faster car is also

The only solution, then, is that the hours must be different. The fast car was faster than both, but it would take twice as long for the car to be 40 miles away from the slow car than from the sitting man, thus, one hour inside the slow car is equal to two hours for the still man. This rule is true even at slow speeds, but they are far too slow compared the “fast car” — which is light, traveling at 185,000 miles per second — to matter. Even the Apollo rockets were only able to slow time by billionths of a second. While it is theoretically impossible to travel faster than the speed of light, the fact that time can be changed may make it possible to “work around,” this limitation. That, and other potential ways of exceeding the speed of light barrier, will be the focal point of my next article.

thereof, for mental health. Studies on lab animals have suggested that the damaging effects can work both ways, meaning that sleep deprivation and sleep fragmentation can increase the levels of beta-amyloid, which in turn may be a factor in further sleep disturbance. The result may be a vicious circle with potentially dire outcomes. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, between 50 and 70 million Americans are chronically sleep-deprived. In surveys conducted by the agency from 2005 to 2006 and again from 2007 to 2008, 23 percent of participants reported having difficulties with concentrating and 18 percent with remembering. Eleven percent said they sometimes had problems driving safely due to insufficient rest. The effects of sleep deprivation and sleep disorders may be less apparent in Timi Gustafons

COMMENTARY

Chronic sleep deprivation and poor sleep quality have been linked to a number of health problems, but now a new study has identified one more potential risk, namely cognitive decline at old age, including Alzheimer’s disease. While it has not been determined yet whether people who don’t sleep well are more likely to suffer from dementia as they get older, or whether it is a symptom of mental illness already on its way, scientists have long known that both sleep hygiene and mental well-being are closely connected. For the study, the researchers scanned the brains of 70 participants, ages 53 to 91, looking for clusters of beta-amyloid plaques, proteins that when building up in the brain may cause the kind of damage associated with Alzheimer’s. This is not the first time scientists have investigated the role of sleep, or lack

younger people, but they are nevertheless real. Besides being more prone to engage in hazardous behavior when overtired, even young adults increase their risk of developing chronic diseases like hypertension, heart disease, diabetes as well as emotional and mental illness if they remain in a prolonged state of sleeplessness. A person’s circadian rhythm — the cycling of sleep and wakefulness as well as body temperature and metabolism throughout the day and night — can get progressively unbalanced when sleep needs are neglected. In older adults, difficulties to maintain regular rest periods may increase. Especially the deep sleep stages, when the body does most of its healing and repair work of tissue, bones and muscles from daily wear and tear, lessen with age. While, generally speaking, aging is often associated with shorter and lighter sleep, it doesn’t have to be this way. Older adults can benefit from the same sleep hygiene as

[6] December 27, 2013 [ YEAR from page 1] approval to an interlocal agreement between the county and the city allowing the city to annex the county-owned Donut Hole property on Sept. 9. The Donut Hole is 154 acres of unincorporated land within the urban growth boundary off Kent-Kangley Road Southeast and Southeast 228th Street that is entirely surrounded by the city of Maple Valley and home to nine holes of Elk Run Golf Course, a stand of trees and the county’s 13-acre roads maintenance facility. Earlier this year Gov. Inslee signed Senate Bill 5417 into law which amended the requirements a piece of property must meet before a city can initiate the annexation process, thus allowing Maple Valley to annex the Donut Hole. The city plans to rezone the property, which is currently zoned for residential development, as part of the 2014 comprehensive plan update. Additionally, the Tahoma School District is in the process of purchasing 35 acres of the site which will become the home of the new Tahoma High School. The interlocal agreement will allow for the transition of the Maple Valley proposed annexation area to city control and enable the continued operation of the roads maintenance facility owned by the King County Department of Transportation that is located on the property until the county is able to relocate the facility.

COVINGTON’S SALE TAX MEASURE FAILS Covington officials sought a way to generate cash to infuse its street funds and put a sales tax increase on the Nov. 5 general election ballot. It failed by 39 votes. A transportation benefit district was formed, and the Covington City Council operates as its board. The City Council approved putting the matter to voters because it doesn’t have enough money to fix streets and would like to add another officer to its police force. If the trend continues, the city

www.covingtonreporter.com • www.maplevalleyreporter.com will spend its reserves for road projects in four years. The TBD would have created enough revenue through a sales tax increase of 0.2 percent — from 8.6 percent to 8.8 percent — to fill the coffers of its street fund and could generate as much as $750,000 a year. As of late July, the street fund is expected to be short $56,000 this year. City Manager Derek Matheson explained to the Covington Rotary July 26 that the recession, higher gas prices, inflation and statewide ballot measures reduced the cash flow into the city’s street fund. Given the failure of the proposition, Covington officials will consider their options in January.

TAHOMA SCHOOL BOND PASSES The Tahoma School District $195 million construction bond received overwhelming approval with nearly 70 percent approval in the November general election. The bond includes money for a new comprehensive Tahoma High School to house the district’s students in grades 9 through 12 to be located on 35 acres in the Donut Hole in Maple Valley. The bond also includes what are referred to as warm, safe, and dry projects as well as funding for work related to realigning the district’s existing schools for different grade levels. The plans for district realignment call for Glacier Park and Rock Creek to remain elementary schools. Lake Wilderness, which is currently the largest elementary school in the state, will also remain an elementary school but the older portion of the school will be torn down and the school will become about half its current size. Shadow Lake will also remain an elementary school but will only house half the elementary grades, with the other half housed at Cedar River as a companion school. Tahoma Middle School is slated to become an elementary school and Tahoma Junior High and the current Tahoma High School building will both be turned into

middle schools. The last time that a construction bond was passed in the district was in 1997 for $45 million, which paid for the remodeling of the current Tahoma High School among other projects. Tahoma’s last bond measure in April 2011 garnered just under 53 percent of voter approval.

KENTWOOD PRINCIPAL LEAVES AFTER 14 YEARS Doug Hostetter spent nearly half his career working at Kentwood High before leaving at the end of June to take on a new position as director of high schools for the Tacoma School District. Hostetter earned his doctorate in the spring from Seton Hall University. This after he initially set his sights on medical school before he went to Pacific Lutheran University. A coaching job during summer break helped him make the connection between his ability to work with the kids that his mother always saw in him. “Not to sound old, but I’ve got a lot of good years left in me,” Hostetter told the Reporter in May. “I’m ready for a new challenge.” Hostetter said he will be focused in Tacoma on figuring out how to help students achieve the new standards and on closing the achievement gap, a problem for which he feels his time at Kentwood will be particularly helpful. “How can I replicate what we’ve done here at Kentwood across the Tacoma School District,” Hostetter said.

FROM TOMMYJOHN SURGERY TO STATE CHAMP Denham Patricelli, a senior at Tahoma High, lost a year of sports after shredding his elbow in the spring of his sophomore year throwing the javelin. Patricelli made the choice to undergo Tommy John surgery. A standout football player, Patricelli missed his junior season on the gridiron, but when the spring of 2013 rolled around he began working to get back to throwing and football. When it came time to make his final throw at the 4A state track and field championships in May, Patricelli knew he could hit his goal with the right throw even though he hurled the javelin far enough on

his third try to win the crown. He also had something to prove to himself. “I was feeling it, I wanted to throw 200 (feet), that was my goal and the very next throw I threw 205 and that was my (personal record) and that was the throw I won state on,” Patricelli said. It was also a good 25 feet farther than the boy who took second place. Patricelli is a self-described football fanatic with talent to match. He started on offense and defense as a sophomore, something Tahoma head coach Tony Davis explained in an email interview over the summer is virtually unheard of in the 19 years he’s coached there. “He is an outstanding receiver and linebacker,” Davis wrote. “Very instinctive player. He missed all of last season due to the elbow surgery and his return will have a big impact on our team.” Indeed it did. In an early season game in September against Bethel, Patricelli hauled in three receptions for touchdowns — in the first quarter. He helped the Bears to the playoffs. Even over the summer break, Patricelli knew his best shot at getting a scholarship in college was on the strength of his right arm and how far he could throw a javelin. “For javelin I set my standards pretty high,” Patricelli told the Reporter in July. “Right now going into next year … I want to repeat as state champ and go for the state record and also the national record because they’re pretty close.” Patricelli loves the competition and it would come as no surprise that even if he didn’t need to throw the javelin more than 227 feet, 11 inches — the current state record — to win his second straight 4A title, he probably would if he believed he could do it. He could be an even bigger story in 2014.

ahoma dominated in a double dual league wrestling meet Dec. 18 when it hosted Thomas Jefferson and Kentwood. There were bright spots for Kentwood in the 53-16 loss to Tahoma, though, such as Dalton Meyers 8-0 win over Justin Weiding at 145 while Austin Duncan defeated Aaron Vaughan 5-3 in overtime in the 285

pound match and Tanner Abarnathy pinned Nick Palandri in the first period of the 220 pound contest. For Tahoma, Austin Jones pinned Dylan Hill in one minute, 32 seconds in the 106 pound match, at 113 pounds Dylan Weiding defeated Andy Sandhu, Nick Whitehead recorded a pin in with 20 seconds left in the first period against Kentwood’s Daniel Castro at 120 and Justin Sipila pinned Eathen Olive in 37 seconds. The Bears added

wins by Todd Link at 138, Sean Hanson at 152, OJ Jenkins at 160, Tucker Mjelde at 170, Adam Hokenson at 182 and Cooper Thomas at 195. Against Thomas Jefferson Jones, Dylan Weiding, Whitehead, Sipila, Cruz Velasquez, Todd Link, Justin Weiding, Hanson and Hokenson all recorded pins as Tahoma cruised to a 72-4 victory. On the same night, Kentlake hosted Auburn and Auburn Riverside, losing

both, however Nick Smith, John Yarbrough and Josh Beckler provided highlights for the Falcons wrestlers in the dual against Auburn. Smith, wrestling at 120, was down 5-1 in the second period before scoring a flurry of points to cut it to 5-4 against his opponent from Auburn. Then with 1:23 left in the third period Smith scored a reversal to take the lead which he held onto for the 6-5 decision. Beckler capped off the night with the final match

at 160 by pinning his opponent in 34 seconds. Next up for Tahoma was the Tri-State Tournament Dec. 20-21 at North Idaho College. Kentlake and Kentwood, on the other hand, will wrestle next at the South Puget Sound League All Division tournament set for Dec. 30-31 at Auburn High.

[12] December 27, 2013 [ YEAR from page 6] 180th Avenue Southeast and Southeast 240th Street. Phase one is vital because it fills a critical need which is one of the highest priorities for residents according to research the city has done in preparing its Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces Plan. Scott Thomas, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parks and recreation director, told the Reporter in December 2012 there is a significant need to provide a place for children to play sports. The site is about 30 acres and is a collection of four parcels purchased by the city in 2003 and then brought into King Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s urban growth boundary in 2004. It was annexed into the city in 2008. It is a short walk from Tahoma High School. Construction had a $1.6 million price tag while the total project cost comes in at $2.26 million. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It took us 10 years to build to this point,â&#x20AC;? said Mayor Margaret Harto during the ribbon cutting in June. City officials hope it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take 10 years to get the second phase complete but an allocation of funding from the state Legislature

during this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s session gives Covington a head start on the process.

MAPLE VALLEY WOMAN KILLED IN LAS VEGAS CRASH Sandi Sutton, a resident of Maple Valley, was one of the victims of a car crash in the early morning hours of Feb. 21 on Las Vegas Boulevard, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s center of gaming known as The Strip. Sutton was a passenger in a taxi cab that was struck by a Maserati at the intersection of Flamingo Road and Las Vegas Boulevard. The driver of Maserati lost control of the vehicle after allegedly being shot by the driver of a black Range Rover after an altercation between the two drivers in a nearby parking lot. The driver of the taxi and the driver of the Maserati also died. The driver of the Range Rover was later located and arrested near Los Angeles and was sent to jail in Nevada where he is awaiting trial in 2014 on charges related to the shooting and crash. Sutton grew up in Maple Valley and graduated from Tahoma High School in 1982. Sutton was also a local business owner, and

an active member of the Greater Maple Valley-Black Diamond Chamber of Commerce and the Maple Valley Rotary. Together she and her husband owned All Service Plumbing and she was also co-owner of The Dazzled Dame with Leih Mulvihill. She is survived by her husband, James Wasmund, and their three children, Austin, Sarah, and Hunter.

KENTLAKE LEADS THE WAY IN HIGHER EDUCATION Renton Technical College and Kentlake High forged a partnership in the spring to fulfill an innovative education vision. Through the partnership, Kentlake students could earn a two-year associateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree in pre-nursing alongside a high school diploma. The program, called Kentlake Medical Career Pathways, will align Kentlakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s curriculum with requirements at Renton Tech for students in the program, allowing a direct transfer of credits to Renton Tech or the possibility of transferring to another college or university explained Kentlake Principal Joe Potts in February.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Renton has a distinct focus on healthcare and healthcare related fields,â&#x20AC;? Potts said of the reason Kentlake decided to partner with Renton Tech. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The president of Renton Tech was really interested in promoting this partnership, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been at the table with his sleeves rolled up from the beginning.â&#x20AC;? Both organizations got the stamp of approval from their respective boards of directors in March during a special meeting at Kentlake. Steve Hansen, the president of RTC, sees the program as a chance to seamlessly blend high school and college and give students hands-on experiences that lead to career options. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What we really value in the education we do is itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hands-on learning,â&#x20AC;? Hansen said during the meeting in March. Some of that hands-on learning will also come through a partnership with MultiCare in Covington where some of the classes will be held. The program also fits with the city of Covingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vision for becoming a hub for healthcare in south King County. Covington Mayor Mar-

garet Harto said in March the program is the first step in changing how Covington looks at the potential of youth and giving youth opportunities for jobs at home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unimaginable, even beyond healthcare,â&#x20AC;? Harto said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now we have the first of those things that will bring them back to Covington.â&#x20AC;? Classes began in September and the 1900 building at Kentlake bears a Renton Technical College sign.

MAPLE VALLEY RESIDENT SHOOTS, KILLS MAN A man was killed and a woman was critically injured early on the morning of April 5 by a property owner in Maple Valley.

LANDSLIDE VICTORIES IN BLACK DIAMOND ELECTIONS In the November general election Dave Gordon won the Black Diamond mayoral race with 68.55 percent of the vote defeating incumbent mayor Rebecca Olness. His platform was based on opposition to the YarrowBay development. The two YarrowBay master planned developments call for over an additional 6,000 homes to the community of about 5,000 people and have been contentious issues in the city since 2009, galvanizing a political movement that placed Gordon in the mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seat and a trio of candidates on City Council as a result of the election. Erika Morgan, Carol Benson and Janie Edelman won the three City Council elections, all soundly defeating their opponents.
