Tahoma moving to new tests, standards

Grant to benefit Tahoma program

The Tahoma School District is transitioning to the new Common Core standards this year, including introducing the SMARTER Balanced tests. Dawn Wakeley, assistant superintendent for Tahoma, said that the state Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction gave the district the option to begin implementing the new standards and new tests this year as part of the field testing phase of implementation and that after much discussion the district decided to go that route. Wakeley explained that this year the district’s students in grades three through eight will take the SMARTER Balanced tests but that 10th grade students will still take the High School Proficiency Exams to fulfill the graduation requirement of pass-

The Tahoma School District school resource officer program will benefit from $25,000 as part of a grant obtained by the King County Sheriff ’s Office. It was announced at the Jan. 13 Maple Valley City Council meeting by City Manager David Johnston that part of the funding was secured for the Tahoma program. Maple Valley Police Chief Michelle Bennett wrote in an email that she will meet with Rob Morrow, the principal of Tahoma Junior High who has been named the next superintendent of Tahoma schools effective upon Mike Maryanski’s retirement this summer, on Friday to discuss how to best use the funds. Bennett also wrote that the funds will pay for officers to act as school resource officers, who

Enumclaw School District wrestles with student use of social media BY DENNIS BOX dbox@maplevalleyreporter.com

Social media became the talk of the town during the Dec. 16 meeting of the Enumclaw School Board. A group of eight parents and students spoke to board members concerning a complaint filed by the Farr Law Group involving some students’ Twitter accounts and the school district’s reaction to the complaint. Most of the students were high school athletes. Staff from the Reporter’s sister paper, the Enumclaw Courier-Herald were able to confirm that at least one was not. Students and parents asked pointed questions about the right and responsibility of the school district — which serves Black Diamond — to get involved in student’s speech outside of school hours and off school property. Students and parents also

expressed concerns that someone was following the students on social media and questioned the motivation behind such action. The complaint and the school district’s response brought to light a myriad of issues involving social media that school administrators and parents are struggling with across the state and nation.

THE BEGINNING The story began when Enumclaw-based Farr Law Group filed a complaint June 26 concerning language used by about seven Enumclaw High School students on their Twitter accounts. The Courier-Herald received the documents in question following a public records request. The letter filed by the firm, signed by Megan Farr, was accompanied by a “Discrimi-

G The letSLAN ter stated OMG a client brought the issue IMO to the GAY firm and YOL O the inDERP dividual wished to :) LOL remain anonymous “for fear of retribution. The complaint is sent through our office to (hopefully) communicate its seriousness, with the hope that the district will treat this appropriately.

“The complaint regards what appears to us a pattern amongst students in your district to use the words ‘faggot’ (or a variation thereof) — along with other offensive remarks, and general profanity. “Given past district initiatives to counter bullying and encourage kindness — we trust the school district will handle this appropriately.”

SCHOOL DISTRICT ACTION The school district sent a letter to the law firm stating, “As you likely know, the District has limited authority to impose student discipline for student behavior that occurs off campus. Nevertheless, our high school [ more SOCIAL page 2 ]

[ SOCIAL from page 1] administrative team will conduct an investigation the week of July 8-12. Appropriate action will be taken with each individual student based on the evidence gathered during the course of the investigation.” According to district officials, about seven students were called in with their parents for an investigation interview. Superintendent Mike Nelson said a protocol was followed with each interview because a formal complaint was filed by the law firm. “We wanted to know what was behind these tweets,” Nelson said. “Our (high school) staff knows these kids and (the staff) felt there was not an aggressor nor a victim. There was not a victim.” Nelson said he believes the district and schools work hard to prohibit bullying and harassment of students. “That is why we launched Rachel’s Challenge,” Nelson said. Rachel Scott was the first student killed in 1999 during the Columbine High School massacre. Nelson said he began the Rachel’s Challenge program at the school district to help deal with, “harassment and bullying in a proactive manner.”

NOVEMBER COMPLAINT The Farr law firm sent a second letter to the district Nov. 18 stating another complaint was being filed. The firm attached screen shots of about seven more students’ Twitter accounts from July through November 2013. The letter stated the attorneys wished to remain anonymous and added the issue was, “more than a disciplinary problem; it is a cultural problem….” The letter noted the school district’s response in June stated it has, “limited authority to handle ‘off grounds’ behavior, and there would be training for high school students and teachers on social media. Nothing more was said. We now question the effectiveness of these efforts (and submit to you there is legal precedent to discipline off-grounds speech so long as it is not ‘protected’ speech), but aside from that, we believe these incidents indicate a cultural problem in Enumclaw. It must be changed.” No case citation was provided concerning the legal

precedent. The letter continued, “As members of this community and parents we are appalled. These kids are not only creating a hostile learning environment, they are harming themselves. These ‘tweets’ will follow them and cut off academic and career opportunities.” The letter was addressed to Nelson and signed by both Farr and M. Owen Gabrielson, who are married and have a preschool-age child.

NOVEMBER SCHOOL ACTION Following this letter, the school brought in seven more students to interview. The difference was, this time the students were taken from class and parents were notified later. Nelson wrote a letter back to the firm stating the students had all been met with and parents contacted. “I noted in reviewing the student posts that all but one occurred outside the school day. The Enumclaw School District does not have the authority to regulate students’ off campus conduct or to discipline them for such conduct unless the conduct causes a disruption on campus. EHS administrators did not note any disruption of the educational program as a result of these posts. In fact, while plainly inappropriate, the tweets were among friends, and not attempts to harass another student.” Nelson wrote in the letter, “We do not believe that there is a culture at EHS that fosters inappropriate posts. To the contrary, EHS has worked very hard to create a culture of kindness and acceptance.”

TWITTER The screen shots that span February to November include swearing, language like “gay,” “faggot” and the “F word,” as well as the word “retard.” There is also a screen shot of two boys, one wearing a yarmulke or skull cap worn by Jewish men, and the other boy was standing with his fingers pointed at his forehead. A tag on the post is “Germany vs Jews.” Farr and Gabrielson pointed to this as anti-Semitic. A parent of a student involved in the post said the attorneys misunderstood the intent of that post and many of the

students posts. All the posts appear to be between friends and there is no indication anyone being singled out to be harassed or bullied.

BOARD MEETING Parents and students who spoke at the December meeting questioned the law firm’s and their client’s motivation and the school’s actions. The Courier-Herald will not be using the students names who spoke at the meeting and in phone interviews since all are minors. State Rep. Cathy Dahlquist, a former Enumclaw School Board member, spoke at the meeting, asking the board to reconsider the district’s harassment and bullying policy. “…in the state legislature when we pushed this antibullying and harassment through, the intent was for it to protect students,” Dahlquist said. “And what we found is there are people in this community, right now who are using it to their benefit to bully and stalk and harass children, as we speak.” Dahlquist added, “We are all born in the United States of America; we have the First Amendment to free speech. Kids might say things, adults might say things we don’t like. They may call each other names we don’t like. Unless there is a victim, there is no bullying or harassment.” Dahlquist does not believe the district should have called students out of class without contacting parents first and added, “I do not believe it is the right of the school district to monitor social media accounts, personal social media accounts, that has nothing to do with school related issues.” Kari Christensen asked board members, “(What) are going to do to protect my family from this person that for some reason finds it cool to look at a 17-year-old girl’s Twitter account.” A female student said, “I understand that I may have said some offensive things I should not have been saying on the Internet. I didn’t think the school should get involved. Especially when I was out of school…. I felt like I was really targeted by this as well as other kids.” Mauricio Portillio Sr said, “Someone told me this is the [ more SOCIAL page 3 ]


www.covingtonreporter.com • www.maplevalleyreporter.com [ SOCIAL from page 2] land of free and home of the brave. And I don’t think this person (who followed the Twitter accounts) is brave.” Another female student said, “I’m very responsible… taking care of my own business. I think it is really inappropriate for someone to be going through all my stuff.”

STUDENTS A female student who was interviewed by phone said she did not believe the school should have been involved. She said all the kids are “great kids” and the person accessing the accounts was “targeting certain groups of kids.” The student said the females felt they were being cyberstalked. “Going out and finding us on our Twitter accounts, looking over our feeds. It was creepy,” she said. She said she understood adults would consider the posts inappropriate and, “not what adults want to see… don’t go out and search for it.” The student said the group of students determined which Twitter account was following them. The account did not use an individual’s name. She said the person communicated with them. There was no evidence that inappropriate language was used by the person following the students. The Twitter account and the communication was confirmed by parents and students. Nelson and school administrators said they were not aware the person following the students also was communicating with them. Farr said she could not state who followed the students because of attorneyclient privilege.

DISCIPLINARY OR EDUCATION The female student said she felt the inter-

views by the administration were disciplinary. Parents contacted by The CourierHerald said they thought the interviews where disciplinary, despite what the school district said. Nelson noted that no formal disciplinary forms were added to the students’ record, which would be accessible by parents online through the district website. The school administration described the interviews as an investigation that was more formal, with notes of the interviews kept. One parent said the student and parents were told to sign a form stating they were interviewed. The parents of the student following the interview insisted the school administration remove the notes from the student’s file, which they were told was done. According to Nelson, the second set of interviews in November were less formal, which is why the students were called from class and parents were contacted later. The school administration said no notes were kept of the second set of interviews. Nelson said when the school district received the complaints the students and parents needed to be contacted. “I don’t think it should have been put in a drawer or file and not have parents know we have information about their child,” Nelson said. Nelson also said the board was informed as soon as the complaints were made.

FARR LAW GROUP Farr said during an interview at her office that she and Gabrielson were trying to point out a “cultural problem” in Enumclaw and their intent was not to get “anyone in trouble or target any child.” Farr said they were representing a client who brought the issue to them. “We looked into this and we were horri-

fied by what we saw. We know Enumclaw is better than this. We hope the result of this will be a candid community discussion.” Farr also said she wanted the students to understand what they are doing on social media, which is public, and the consequences of the posts. She said the firm’s intent was for the school, parents, and students to take the issue seriously. Farr said inappropriate social media posts can cause problems for students trying to get jobs, scholarships and accepted to colleges. She said it is not a personal issue for the firm but the motivation is to begin a conversation. “Students publishing anti-Semitic sentiments, racist and anti-gay slurs to other students in the public forum of Twitter creates a hostile environment in our schools,” Farr wrote in an email. “In this matter, as an advocate, my job is to speak for those individuals fearful to speak alone. I think we can all agree that an educational environment where everyone – students, teachers and staff – feels safe in the halls and classrooms is worth advocating for.”

ACLU Attorney Linda Mangel, education equity expert with the American Civil Liberty Union, said during a phone interview, “schools cannot discipline students for speech and other activities that takes place outside of school on outside computers unless it disrupts schools.” Mangel said the schools do have a “wide berth to call kids down (out of class) and discuss behavior.” She said schools should be cautious about “meddling in students’ off-campus activities unless they call them down to express concern.” Mangel said the students need to be aware that social media is public and to be

January 24, 2014 [3] cautious and careful. “There is no such thing as a private conversation online,” Mangel said. The ACLU has a guide on its website title, “Student Rights and Responsibilities in the Digital Age.” The guide details how the state and U.S. Constitution “guarantee freedom of expression for everyone, including students. Students do not give up their constitutional rights when they walk onto school grounds.” A pdf file of the guide will be posted to The Courier-Herald website linked to this story.

CONCLUSION The school board will be considering changes to the district bullying policy. Nelson said the district wants to be certain students are safe and, “We don’t want kids bullied.” The question for the board is whether to allow adults in the community to anonymously file a bullying report as was done in this case. The district would continue to allow students to report anonymously concerning harassment and bullying. “We are all trying to get our arms around social media,” Nelson said. The complaints and the reactions by the parents, students and school district have raised awareness about the many troubling aspects of social media with children and adults. The rights and responsibilities of everyone involved must to be carefully considered and balanced with the safety of all students, including those who had their Twitter accounts followed. Mangel said she believes school districts are so concerned right now with bullying and cyberbullying “they are overreaching.” [ more SOCIAL page 5 ]

Staff Writer Katherine Smith

You know what I love about being a grown up? Adventuring. Coming up with crazy ideas and dreams and getting to chase them. At the end of 2012 I decided to take up running. The goal: to run one 5K. Lets just say that has morphed a bit and grown since then. Somewhere along the way I realized runDisney existed. And, of course, being the Disneyland geek that I am, I started researching the races and before long had picked one out. After all — California, running, a chance to see some of my best friends, and Disney — that didn’t take any arm twisting. Last summer I signed up for the Tinker Bell 10K and last weekend was finally the big day. So come last Thursday night it was off to the land of sunshine and Mickey I went. Friday morning I headed over to the expo at the Disneyland Hotel first thing to try to avoid the giant crowds I had heard about — runDisney race weekends include several races and an expo. There was definitely a large crowd there. The lines weren’t bad at all, but I also didn’t even attempt the NewBalance runDisney shoes booth. Cute shoes, but Disneyland was calling. I had a ball meandering through the booths and seeing all the different vendors. I particularly had fun picking out some new headbands and browsing through the race merchandise. Also at the expo was bib and shirt pickup, both which had virtually no line, so I zipped right through that part. Also, did I mention the sunshine and 80 plus degree weather? That’s the magic of being 1,000 miles closer to the equator. Then it was on to a day of Disneylanding and an evening at California Adventure. Radiator Springs Racers is one of my new favorite rides. I might have ridden it twice in a row via the single rider line. Thirty-ish minute wait? That’s just too good to pass up as it’s still ‘new’ and the wait often grows quite long. And I specifically waited until after the sun went down because Carsland at night is amazing with the lighting effects. One of my absolute favorite things about Disneylanding solo is the chance to talk to other guests and meet people from around the country and the world. Once, when I was in college and at Disneyland, I met a woman and her grandson who were on summer vacation from New Zealand.

Confirmation power struggle Another major confrontation between conservatives and the president is currently being argued before the Supreme Court. Since 2009, when Barack Obama took office, there has been a battle over confirmations between Senate Republicans and the president. The most recent conflict results from the president’s unilateral appointment of three National Labor

That was pretty cool. Sometimes I wonder if she went home and told their family about the American she met who was doing homework at Disneyland. This trip I got to talk to a woman who was from the East Coast who was on her first trip to Disneyland. She was running the half marathon on Sunday morning. I also met a woman who teaches eighth-grade English at a school north of downtown LA. She was chaperoning the school band’s field trip to perform in the park. We talked about her favorite books to teach and her thoughts on Common Core. I also met a fellow 10K runner from near Pasadena who was also doing her first runDisney race. The 10K was Saturday morning, 6 a.m. to be exact. People get really into the runDisney races and come in all kinds of costumes and outfits, from color coordinated to princess themed to full on character costumes. I saw someone at the starting line with a paper mache Kevin from “Up”. Other notable costumes I saw included Princess Leia in the white dress from “A New Hope” complete with the hairdo and toy blaster and Ralph from “Wreck it Ralph”. Oh, and lots of people wearing fairy wings, it was Tinker Bell after all. We started on Disneyland Drive and ran through backstage and into Disneyland, then across the esplanade and through California Adventure before doing a quick loop through Anaheim and ending at the Paradise Pier Hotel. There were lots of photo ops throughout the course and groups of cast members along the route cheering on all the runners, plus all the people who came to cheer on their friends.

One of my favorite signs I saw someone holding said, “The cold never bothered Elsa.” “Frozen” reference for the win. One of the touches that I found neat was that my friends and family could sign up to get texts about where I was when I crossed the starting line, halfway point, and the finish line, so they could keep up even if they couldn’t be there in person. As soon as I crossed the finish line the texts from my family started coming in because they already knew I had finished. The race was over faster then I realized — all the sights made the miles fly by. The rest of the weekend was spent hanging out with my friends and soaking up the sunshine. And, as a side note, Downtown Disney was a fascinating place to be Sunday night if you enjoy people watching. My friend and I were browsing through the shops and I was obsessively checking Twitter for updates on the Hawks game. When Malcolm Smith came up with that interception at the end I started jumping up and down and my friend, who is from the Bay and really has no interest in football, thought I’d gone crazy. Almost simultaneously the 49ers fans started streaming out of ESPN Zone. Mixed in the sea of red were some jubilant Hawks fans, and those of us who were sporting blue traded “Go Hawks!” cheers. Overall it was a great weekend and I’m already planning my next Disney race. If you like running and you like Disney, it’s an experience I highly recommend. After all, as they say, with Disney, “every mile is magic.”

Relations Board members during the December 2011/ January 2012 congressional recess. Based upon a Jan. 13, 2014, article in the Christian Science Monitor entitled, “Supreme Court Justices Question Recent Appointments” by Warren Richey, it’s important to understand the issues behind this lawsuit to discern the power struggle in a fuller way. The Republican Senate perspective: According to the Constitution, the Senate has the power to confirm presidential appointments, in this particular instance, the appointment of three National Labor Relations Board members. Senate Republicans have never liked this agency that was created during the Great Depression because it tends to rule against

business. Noel Canning, a Washington state bottling company, is bringing this issue before the Supreme Court. Canning sued, stating the NLRB decision against them was unconstitutional because the three board members were illegally appointed during the winter recess. The Supreme Court is made up of five justices who are conservative and pro-business. Since George W. Bush appointed Justice Samuel Alito and Chief Justice John Roberts in 2005, the direction of the court has moved solidly to the conservative perspective. The January 2010 Citizens United campaign financing case is one of many examples. It seems to me that the Republicans in the Senate are banking that the five conservatives on the court will favor their view [ more ELFERS page 5 ]

Seahawks players understand how to make a difference BY JOHN BOYLE Everett Herald Columnist

When Seattle Seahawks tight end Zach Miller got a phone call from a friend and former college teammate, he didn’t think much about the simple act of signing a football and some Seahawks merchandise and sticking them in the mail. The call came from Cincinnati Bengals guard Mike Pollak, who played with Miller at Arizona State. Pollak had heard from his wife about Dave and Kristina Quick, Seahawks fans in Brier with newborn twins, one of whom was at Seattle Children’s Hospital following multiple surgeries. Kristi Pollak and Kristina Quick had attended physical therapy school together. So, in one of those small-world moments, Mrs. Pollak suggested to her husband that they reach out to Miller, whose wife, Ashley, had recently given birth to twins. Like the Quicks, the Millers’ 10-month old twin girls had spent some time in the hospital after birth and the Seahawks couple knew the angst burdening the Quicks. So, Miller and his wife didn’t hesitate showing their compassion, didn’t think twice about packaging up a card and some items signed by Seahawks players and sending them to a family they had never met. On the other end of that gesture, Dave Quick came home from a two-day stint at the hospital where his son Franklin had recently undergone open-heart surgery, opened a mysterious package on his front porch and shed a few tears. “I wish I would have had a camera on my face,� he said.

decisions will bring about the economic and political changes they prefer. Thwarting confirmations of the president’s board appointments through delay is part of that larger strategy. President Obama realized the Republicans do not want the NLRB to function because the agency’s purpose is to regulate business. Not confirming the presidential appointments

renders the NLRB useless and puts the power of the NLRB under a cloud. In frustration and in an act of defiance, the president decided to use the part of the Constitution that allows him to make appointments during Congressional recesses, an option created by the founders to allow for the immense amount of time it took to travel in the late 1700s.

Republicans in the Senate realized the president was probably going to make recess appointments to the NLRB, so they got the Senate to remain in operation over the 2011-12 winter break, thus thwarting his plans and weakening the president. The Senate did this by voting to have “pro forma� sessions every three days during the winter break to

prevent the president from making those appointments. The Supreme Court decision that comes from the Noel Canning case will decide between the president and the Senate. Will the five conservative justices vote to weaken the Democratic president’s powers or will they decide to strengthen his hand at the expense of Congress?

The decision will be announced in June of this year. This case is one to watch to see which direction the Roberts court is going to take. The decision will either weaken the presidency or the power of the Senate. No matter what the decision is, the power of the Supreme Court will increase.

happening online they (the students) can’t be punished any more than if it was offline.� Mangel said athletes can be held to a higher standard for playing sports under the athletic code, but not for school discipline. Mangel said the students need to be aware that social media is public and to be cautious and careful.

The guide details how the state and U.S. Constitution “guarantee freedom of expression for everyone, including students. Students do not give up their constitutional rights when they walk onto school grounds.� The guide points out students may comment on controversial topics including gay rights, school

rules or national news, “but there are limits. In some situations, speech can be restricted at school‌.â€? The guide notes that in most situations, school administrators and teachers cannot prevent a student from commenting on a controversial subject. “When speech on sensitive topics stirs passionate feelings, the best response is

usually more speech – not less.� The guide stated that if a student is in a meeting with a school official and the student thinks, “something is wrong, ask to call a parent or guardian.� The guide also noted, “Putting your real name,

address, or phone number on a public website is like putting the information up on a billboard – anybody can read and use the information for any purpose, without you ever knowing.�

The Maple Valley store will have a feature not found in other nearby stores, a drive through, something the locations in Issaquah and Southcenter do not have. “When we looked at Maple Valley, it’s this great, growing community,” Bedows said. “As we looked to expand, we’ve got 23 locations in the Seattle area … we wanted to look at the area that fits what we’re looking for.

Maple Valley residents will be able to welcome a new business to Four Corners in about a year as Panera Bread Co. plans to open a new location there. Kevin Bedows, joint venture partner for Panera for this region, said the company is in the process of finalizing the details for the new store in Four Corners Square. “We’ll be the one closest to the fire station,” Bedows said. “We’re going to be in that shopping area.”

Trader Joe’s, a unique neighborhood grocery store with foods and beverages, signed a lease to open a new store in Kent at 12966 S.E. Kent Kangley Road, inside the Lake Meridian Marketplace. The store is scheduled to open in the second half of 2014. The store will be about 12,800 square feet. The Kent location will feature a festive décor that mixes traditional Trader

Currently, local fans of Trader Joe’s have to travel to Issaquah, Burien, Federal Way, or its newest store in the region in Sammamish.

In fact, after the announcement was made Jan. 17 the store was coming to Kent, a post was made to Covington’s official Facebook profile, “We know how much you all would like a Trader Joe’s in Covington … we’ve even worked hard to get them thinking about us … at least they are getting closer.” The location in Kent is little more than two miles from Covington’s downtown core, about a five minute drive, and about 7 miles from Four Corners

Bedows explained that Panera wants to offer quality meals to customers and be part of the community. “We donate all of our bakery products at the end of the night (to nonprofits such as food banks),” Bedows said. “We do fundraising.

Patterson added that the district currently spends $90,000 for the school resource officer program and for traffic control at the high school, which is also provided by the Sheriff ’s Office.

That’s a big shift in our curriculum.” As for the math standards, Wakeley said the focus is on depth of knowledge as opposed to breadth of knowledge. “They’re not quite as broad,” Wakeley said of the new standards. That means a smaller number of topics will be covered each year but students will be expected to have a higher level of understanding and mastery of the topics covered. The district has been focusing on curriculum revisions and professional development to prepare for the new standards. Information about the new standards and assessments went out to parents this fall during conferences. Wakeley said that overall the new standards are more rigorous and that the district’s emphasis on thinking skills should serve students well as they approach the new tests and that the district still has farther to go.

The district re-instituted the SRO program on a parttime basis this year. The Kent School District,

Five ways to hurry up spring and get inspired to garden beginning and still-learning gardeners and answering plant and design questions from 2-4 p.m. every weekday at a booth hosted by the Cascade Water Alliance – so bring me photos of your landscape or design dilemmas. 2.

Five things to do to hurry up spring! 1. Attend the Northwest Flower and Garden show. Spring arrives early this year as the Northwest Flower and Garden Show blooms Feb 5-9 in the Seattle Convention Center.

Now set this sign of spring on the breakfast table and watch the stem lengthen, the bud appear and the petals unfold. 3. Sign up for an earlyspring garden class. You can attend classes at local nurseries and from your water district before the daffodils bloom. (Check my website at www.binettigarden.com for a list of classes and details). When you attend a class at the end of winter, you’ll

What’s blooming at Lake Wilderness Arboretum Take a walk through the display gardens of Lake Wilderness Arboretum right now, and you may catch a glimpse of several plants that are currently blooming. Witch hazel, known as Hamamelis intermedia ‘Arnold Promise,’ blooms near the meadow through March. This shrub shows off delicate, sweetly fragrant yellow flowers, each with four narrow, ribbon-like, crinkled petals and a reddish-green calyx cup, which bloom along the stems. Best in full sun, witch hazel looks nice in a border or a woodland garden, offering attractive summer foliage and fall color.

Community News and Notes AREA COUNCIL HOLDS FIRST MEETING OF THE YEAR The Greater Maple Valley Area Council held its first regular monthly meeting of the new year on Jan. 6 where the main subjects discussed were Metro Transit Service, the Covington master planned development, and a proposed regional stormwater retention facility. King County Metro Transit’s DeAnna Martin discussed bus transportation funding and proposed cuts at the meeting. Revenue from sales taxes, which provide approximately 60 percent of Metro Transit’s fund-

ing, have fallen from pre-recession levels. Although fares have been raised approximately 80 percent over the past several years and costs have been cut, Metro Transit still faces a shortfall. As a result, Metro Transit is planning for service cuts of approximately 17 percent, absent any new funding. With temporary funding authority from the state expiring in June, Metro Transit has planned for specific service reductions: 74 routes would be eliminated and 107 routes changed. In our area Route 143 would have one less morning and afternoon commute peak-hour trips to and

from Maple Valley. Metro Transit plans to send a package of proposed service changes to the King County Council this spring. If approved, the service changes will be phased in beginning this fall. The public will have an opportunity to provide comment to the King County Council before service changes are adopted. For more information visit metro.kingcounty. gov/am/future/. The Area Council also discussed the city of Covington’s final environmental impact statement for the proposed 212-acre master planned development to be located between SR 18, SR 516, and Cedar

be sure to make fewer mistakes when the spring planting season arrives. 4. Visit a public conservatory or a nursery with a greenhouse. Both Tacoma and Seattle host bloom-filled conservatories in public parks and western Washington is full of retail nurseries that have plenty of growing room under glass. Forget the rain, the wind and the chill of winter – get thee to a greenhouse and breathe in the scent of the soil. 5. Dig into a good book – with a garden theme. Local publisher Sasquatch Press is offering

“Perennials for the Pacific Northwest” by Seattle author Marty Wingate. “Fine Foliage” is another photorich guidebook by local authors Karen Chapman and Christina Salwitz. “Succulents Simplified” will inspire less water use in any garden and is written by California author Debra Lee Baldwin.

Winter may linger for a while longer, but hope springs fertile all year long for gardeners who also love

Creek Park. The Area Council’s Growth Management Committee summarized continuing concerns regarding traffic impacts that require additional consideration. These include gross deficiencies in handling traffic congestion along SR 516 and Kent-Kangley. The Area Council will present oral testimony detailing these concerns before the Covington City Council at a public hearing on Jan. 28. On Dec. 16 the King County Council opened a Public Hearing into a draft development agreement with YarrowBay to permit a 77-unit clustered housing development on 394 acres in the rural area immediately west of the city of Black Diamond.

At the public hearing the Area Council provided oral and written testimony specifically focused on a proposed regional stormwater facility to be sited in the rural area to primarily serve the adjacent master planned developments in Black Diamond. The King County Council reopened its public hearing on the draft on Jan. 13. In the intervening weeks King County’s Department of Permitting and Environmental Review has been evaluating State Environmental Policy Act. The Area Council agreed to again testify to the problems of siting a regional stormwater facility in the rural area primarily to serve an urban area. The Area Council agrees with King

County policy which states that urban serving and urban driven facilities should be located inside the Urban Growth Area. At its first monthly meeting of the year the area council conducts internal elections for its officers. For 2014 the area council reelected Steve Hiester as chair, Peter Rimbos as corresponding secretary, and Tara Mahoney as treasurer. Les Dawson was elected as new vicechair. Rob Morris was elected as new recording secretary. All officers immediately assumed their duties for the new year. The Area Council’s next monthly meeting will held Monday, from 7-9 p.m. on Feb. 3 at the Fire Station at SE corner of 231st St & SR 169.

The artistic aerobics of parenthood and nurturing artists school art. I had a feeling of panic several years down the road when I wondered if I successfully took a picture every month of my youngest daughter’s work. To tell you the truth, I can’t remember how I did, but I must’ve done okay, because fixations like that come to me in my nightmares of bad motherhood. Now my kids are 18 and 16 years old. I haven’t done aerobic painting for many, many years. They create their drawings and paintings locked in the sanctuary of their rooms. I don’t have to clean up messes on the floors or walls or dump the buckets of dirty paint water. Their childhood artwork has been reduced to a wall I refer to as my “happy wall� — poster-size Mother’s Day and Christmas poems and prints of feet and hands are framed and hung in my dining room. Mother’s day plates with my “portrait� hang on a specially purchased, black iron, plate rack above the posters (the first one my oldest daughter did where the eyes and hair and mouth are difficult to point out in an eclectic jumble of colors, depicts the rudiments of my psyche in those days — children are brilliant observers). There are two stuffed, paper salmon in the hallway from their fourth grade studies, Gretchen Leigh

Some most amazing feelings are the times when you feel like an especially good parent. For me it was when my kids were little and they wanted to paint. When children want to paint it’s no small feat for a parent. You have to be willing and ready to rip down dripping wet “works of art,� find a place for them to dry, and slap up a fresh sheet of paper before the child starts painting walls and floors. I would do this aerobic painting often when my kids were small. I reveled in the end result of their satisfied little egos. Works of art that weren’t just black blobs, unless the child had named and identified the black blob, got hung up for a time, making sure one child’s blob wasn’t more important than the other child’s blob. I encouraged their artistic talents with genuine admiration for their creations. When my oldest daughter was in preschool, I would hang her original artworks on corkboard I had installed on the computer/craft room door and take a picture of it at the end of every month. But you know how it is with subsequent children, you tend to forget what you did with the first. I tried really hard to remember to hang and take those pictures with my youngest daughter’s pre-

one from each child. Fret not, for I still have new art to hang. My youngest daughter begged me to take down her eighth grade art towards the end of her freshman year, so I replaced it with my oldest daughter’s senior-year art. Now that my oldest daughter is at Green River Community College taking art classes, she herself finds

a new place for her art in the hallway. My youngest daughter’s work from an art class this first semester as a sophomore found its way to the hall, plus she also has quietly taken up acrylic painting on her own and her first creation is the background screen on my computer. My pride is palpable. My daughters’ artistic

talents take my breath away, my admiration is genuine. Someday, when their school art had been reduced to a few favorite pieces and they are off working on their careers, the hallway will be riddled with thumb tack holes. I will look at those holes with pride, and know I have been an especially good parent.

Education is paramount duty and key to our future in education during this supplemental budget year. In his State of the State address last week, Governor Inslee called for $200 million more in school funding. These funds could help pay for areas the state is currently underfunding:: • Full-day kindergarten for every 5-year-old in the state. • Smaller classes — fewer children in each kindergarten through third grade classroom. • Safe transportation to and from school. • Up-to-date books and other learning materials; many kids have school books that are years out-of-date right now, and parents and teachers are supplying more and more of the other materials students need. • More instructional hours, giving students more learning time. • Additional guidance counselors and parent outreach coordinators. Of course, additional funding isn’t the only educationrelated issue the legislature is dealing with. Our drop out rate remains far too high. The opportunity gap threatens Fffirst Lllast

COMMENTARY

Educating Washington’s children is not just our state’s paramount duty, it’s the most important thing we can do for our state’s economy. Equipping students with the skills they’ll need to qualify for the jobs of tomorrow is key to their success and our thriving future. Two years ago this month, the Washington State Supreme Court found the state has not met its constitutional duty to fully fund basic education. Known as the McCleary decision, this ruling has brought to the forefront what most of us already knew — we need to dedicate more state resources to our public schools. In that ruling, the Court also recognized that the legislature had already passed a plan — which I sponsored back in 2009 and 2010 — that would remedy these funding deficiencies. That plan has yet to be fully funded, although the legislature did add nearly $1 billion in new school funding last June. Last week, however, the Supreme Court said that not enough progress has been made to keep us on track toward meeting our 2018 goal of providing “adequate” funding for schools. That means we must make additional investments

a generation. Top-rate teachers are leaving the profession every year, and we know that the best books and the most modern equipment don’t mean much without a welltrained, motivated teacher in every classroom. We’ve passed a long list of changes to our public education system the last few years intended to address these challenges. Key among them is the Teacher and Principal Evaluation Program, which puts in place new evaluation criteria for teachers and principals, and a four-level rating system. When fully implemented, the TPEP will help identify educators that are excelling and provide support and training for those who are not. What do you think are the most important education issues? Where should we invest the new funding required by the state Supreme Court? Should we take a little time to see how the recently approved reforms improve outcomes before instituting more changes? Please join me this Saturday for a community conversation about education. We’ll be at the Kent School District Administration Building in the boardroom from 10:30 am until noon. The address is 12033 S.E. 256th Street in Kent.

Top 10 landscape issues faced in the new year by arborists BY DENNIS TOMPKINS

Buried somewhere in the list of challenges and hopes for the New Year are a few issues that we face in our landscapes. To highlight some of

these, the following Top 10 list has been developed from situations I often encounter. Many are repeated year after year to the dismay of arborists. But first, what will be the impact of the recent pro-

longed cold temperatures on certain plants, trees and shrubs in our landscapes? Cold Weather Damage Most of our native trees and shrubs can withstand freezing conditions. However, the more exotic plants,

like those with palm-like leaves, will either be damaged or killed by extended cold temperatures. Plants or small trees that are planted in pots or containers may have been damaged or killed. While they might normally withstand such conditions, they lacked the insulating soil that normally protects the roots when planted in the ground. As spring approaches, the damaged tissue on the tips of branches and twigs will begin to darken and shrivel up. New growth will not emerge as usual. Then decisions must be made to either bury the victim or attempt to apply gardener first aid. If new growth begins to develop below the damaged portion of a plant, the dead part can be removed for aesthetic appearances. Eventually, the tree or shrub may recover its former shape with some patient TLC. One tip is to make a cut above a bud or emerging growth that is pointed in the direction you wish the new growth to develop. Eventually, additional trimming may be required of new sprouts that have been stimulated as the plant attempts to recover from the damage. Top 10 issues No. 10: Beware of the husband or lawn service that threatens your small trees and shrubs with hedge trimmers. They may be appropriate if a “sculpted” appearance is desirable. But certain popular shrubs as rhododendrons, azaleas

and small trees likeJapanese maples should be hand pruned to maintain a more natural shape. No. 9: The winter storm season is upon us. If a tree has fallen during a severe wind, it is wise to determine whether a root rot was involved. If so, nearby trees may also be infected since these diseases can travel by root to root contact. Fallen trees should be checked by a qualified, experienced professional. No. 8: Be respectful of neighbors that wish to preserve their trees when view issues arise. No. 7: If tree problems arise with a neighbor, try for a peaceful settlement without involving attorneys and lawsuits. Cool heads can lead to win-win solutions. No. 6: If worried about your own or a neighbor’s trees, have a hazard evaluation done by a professional. If a dangerous situation is discovered, the investment will have been worthwhile to remove the risk and contribute to everyone’s safety and peace of mind. No. 5: If a doorbell “arborist” encourages tree removals or windsailing a tree, consider a second opinion from a certified professional. Do not be afraid to question credentials and whether a commission is to be paid on the amount quoted for the job. If so, does he truly have your best interests at heart? No. 4: Do not top trees. Unfortunately, many trees are unnecessarily butchered. The results are ugly, create maintenance night-

mares and can shorten a tree’s life. Overpruning usually stimulates sprouting as trees attempt to replace the removed leaves that served as the food manufacturing plant. No. 3: When considering using pesticides later in the spring, have a problem properly identified, select a legal and effective treatment and apply it at the right time. Overuse can lead to polluting the local environment. Follow the labeled instructions. No. 2: The best tree pruning jobs are those that appear as if very little has been done. Butcher jobs are all too obvious – especially when the tortured skeletons of trees are revealed during the fall and winter. Finally, No. 1: A big thank you to all the readers who hopefully have learned a bit from the columns. I look forward to another year of informing you about tree issues. Feel free to continue to contact me with your questions.

Most people, particularly athletes and those who are in the habit of taking good care of their bodies, have not, and will not, ever use methamphetamines. But, what if those healthy people are inadvertently doing just that? Such may be the case based on a recent report that pointed out that a meth-like chemical substance was discovered to be one of the ingredients in two very popular supplements, one marketed as a pre-workout supplement and the other as a diet aid. Both products claimed to be “all natural.” Longterm side effects of the chemical have not been studied in humans, and it is possible that the risk for heart attack or stroke is increased by the ingredient. Always check with your health care provider before starting a diet or exercise regime, and it’s a good idea to run supplements by the provider as well. For more information about how to manage your symptoms, or to schedule an appointment at Southlake Clinic, please call (253) 395-1972. Our Covington clinic is located at 27005 168th Place SE.
