Promoting the high-tech world

More than 40 exhibitors filled the Enumclaw High commons Thursday for the second STEM Expo, touting the disciplines of science, technology, engineering and math. Attendees enjoyed hands-on exhibits and learned of the growing demand for a STEM-educated workforce. The event was put on by the Enumclaw Schools Foundation and the school district.

Lawmakers discuss priorities By Dennis Box Editor

This is the second installment of a short series where local legislators answer questions concerning both the 31st District and the state. Legislators convened in Olympia Jan. 13 for the 2014 session, which is scheduled to end March 13. Sen. Pam Roach, R-Auburn responded last week. This week Rep. Chris Hurst, D-Greenwater, and Rep. Cathy Dahlquist, R-Enumclaw, discussed issues they are working on during the session. What are the top issues you believe should be addressed during the legislative session?


Wedding Guide

Da h lquist: We created a two-year budget that balances over four years for the first time ever. We wrote and Cathy Dahlquist passed that state operating budget last session. This is a 60-day session, and the intent of a short session is to make minor adjustments to that budget based on increases or decreases in case load forecasts changes, so we are not looking to make major budget expenditures. We started down a path last session with a two-year budget that added an additional $1.6 billion to K-12 education for things like all-day kindergarten, K-1 class-

size reduction, pupil transportation and materials, supplies and operating costs, or MSOCs. This investChris Hurst ment puts the Legislature on track to meet the funding requirements for K-12 education by the statutory deadline of the 2018 school year. One of the other items we funded was creating equity in a high school diploma by aligning all our high schools to a 24 credit requirement for graduation. This continues our work to set the bar high for students


Buying time to consider a sticky issue, members of the Enumclaw City Council have implemented a six-month moratorium on any business that would attempt to sell marijuana for recreational use. As City Attorney Mike Reynolds told the council last week, the city finds itself between the proverbial rock and a hard place. On one hand, state voters approved Initiative 502, which allows for the production and sale of marijuana for recreational use. On the flip side, the federal government continues to view marijuana as a Schedule 1 drug, outlawed by the Controlled Substances Act. While some cities and towns had taken immediate action and issued prohibitions against marijuana sales, the city of Enumclaw had done nothing until the City Council meeting of Jan. 27. At that gathering, by unanimous vote, members of the council authorized the six-month moratorium on marijuana “production, processing and retail sales.” Additionally, the council action called for a public hearing to get community input regarding recreational marijuana and its place inside Enumclaw’s borders.

Quick history

While medicinal marijuana made steady inroads in the Evergreen State, the recreational consumption of cannabis remained illegal, as per federal law. Then came Initiative 502, passed by voters in November 2012, making Washington one of just two states – along with Colorado – where recreational marijuana is allowed.

Love shouldn’t hurt “Give Love. Love Shouldn’t Hurt.” You’ll be seeing these words on posters around town, and LINCCK encourages teens in dating relationships to treat one another with respect. Our mission is to build healthier lives for residents on the Plateau, as there are ways to be more civil in our discourse, compassionate in our thoughts, and kind in our actions. Having teens recognize when their dating relationships begin drifting toward disrespectful actions is a great first step. Sadly, some teens are embroiled in violence, caught in domestic abuse. They need the community’s help. February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month and many youth may participate from Feb. 10-14 in Respect Week. Valentine’s Day is a perfect time to review the healthiness of a dating relationship. To bring focused awareness to all such issues, Feb. 11 is Wear Orange Day. Teens and adults alike should have orange clothing or accessories to show commitment that “Love Shouldn’t Hurt.” Let’s help teach all dating teens the importance of respect and what truly is a healthy relationship. LINCCK Civility • Compassion • Kindness


What is your No. 1 concern facing either our district or state?

Hurst: Making sure we have a world-class education system to have a workforce that can compete in the global marketplace not only in aerospace, but with everything we make or produce. We need to bring manufacturing jobs back home from places like China, but this can only happen with a well educated population and workforce. There is reason for optimism as we recover from the Great Recession, but everyone can be part of the solution when we buy locally and support our local businesses that hire our fellow citizens and family members. Dahlquist: I’m very concerned about the possibility of a large transportation tax package being pushed on the Legislature. With the issues we are having with the Seattle Tunnel and 520 Bridge projects, I cannot fathom asking taxpayer

for an additional 11.5 cents per gallon more for gasoline for a state agency that needs better oversight and accountability. My other concern is the governor holding lawmakers here for yet another 30-day special session, only to find there is not an agreement on tax measures and other controversial topics.

This improving economy has also meant good news to state budget writers. We are seeing tax collections growing roughly $2 billion every two-year budget cycle, or 7 percent. This means more funds to allocate to K-12 education and the safety net programs to assist our most vulnerable. Hurst: Folks are really tired of partisan bickering and posturing by elected officials. People are losing confidence in our system of self-governance because the radical fringe of the political parties driving so much of their agendas. I am committed working with my seatmate in the House, Rep. Cathy Dahlquist, to do our best to work as a team and be an example of how elected officials can collaborate to find solutions together as a team to address the problems and issues our communities and state face.


Discuss any issue you would like to address that those in the district should be aware of concerning the legislative session. Dahlquist: Our economy is slowly improving but we have a lot of work ahead to get Washingtonians back to work. The work we did to ensure Boeing’s 777X carbon fiber wing work and assembly would stay here is a good step. But we can do more to help all business sectors, which I hope we will get moving toward this session.

because we know they will meet the challenge. Since this policy was funded in last year’s budget we need to align the policy to the money that was already allocated. Hurst: Most important is sustaining the economic recovery and jobs. Nothing is more important this session. We have passed the legislation necessary to assure that Boeing will build the next generation of commercial airliners here in Washington state. That means tens of thousands of family wage jobs will be kept here at home. Securing our economic future and the future of our kids is job one. The Boeing legislation goes a very long way in making that happen.

Anyone interested in joining Enumclaw government now has the opportunity, as applications are being sought for a vacancy on the seven-member city council. All seats are “at large,” meaning there are no council districts. Members of the council simply have to reside inside the city limits. The city asks that candidates be able to serve through November 2015. Beyond that, applicants must affirm that they meet all requirements as spelled out by state government; the Revised Code of Washington dictates that candidates must be registered voters and have lived in the city for at least one year. Those wishing to be considered must submit a one-page letter of interest, along with a resumé, to City Clerk Meredith Shirey. Application materials may be submitted via email to mshirey@ci.enumclaw. or by mail to: City of Enumclaw, 1339 Griffin Ave, Enumclaw, Wash. 98022, attn: City Clerk. Applications must be received by the end of the business day on Monday, Feb. 10.

Companies and individuals have filed to produce, process or sell recreational marijuana. Check next week’s edition for a list of local applicants. eventually determine who gets to set up shop and begin retailing.

The city’s response

In the wake of 502’s passage, city staff put together a map, looking at where retail marijuana sales might be allowed – given the “1,000-foot clause” contained in the initiative. It was determined there are several key sites that meet the criteria for legal sales, including properties on

mons. Some changes are in store from a year ago and organizers plan to unveil their theme for 2014. Throughout the year, teams find many ways to have fundraising events like garage sales, bake sales, drawings for quilts or simply by having a car wash. The American Cancer Society is a global grassroots force of more than 3 million volunteers fighting for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community. As the largest volunteer health organization, the society’s efforts have contributed to a 20 percent decline in cancer death rates in the U.S. since 1991 and a 50 percent drop in smoking rates. ACS is the nation’s largest private, not-for-profit investor in cancer research, ensuring people facing cancer have the help they need.

Semanski Street and on state Route 410, primarily on the city’s east side. Spurring city action was a mid-January ruling handed down by the Office of the Attorney General. City Administrator Chris Searcy told the council the AG’s decision allows cities to retain “their normal powers to regulate business through zoning and other means.” Enacting a six-month moratorium, Searcy told

the council, would put the city in a position to examine all its options – from the most lenient stance allowed under 502 to a complete prohibition of marijuana sales. A full review of alternatives, Searcy said, should include “a public discussion of what does Enumclaw, as

I-502 might have made sales legal, but provisions were included to keep weed dispensaries from sprouting up willy-nilly in every community throughout the state. Chief among those is the mandate that any business selling marijuana for recreational use must be at least 1,000 feet from a school, playground, recreation center, childcare center, public park, transit center, library or game arcade. Beyond that, regulations were put in place limiting the number of retail outlets and where they’re placed,

with priority given to the most densely-populated regions. For example, King County can have 61 retail stores, with 21 of those earmarked for Seattle. There are no allocations for Enumclaw or Black Diamond specifically, although plans allow for 11 “at large” locations. Pierce County gets 31 retail outlets, with eight planned for Tacoma. Bonney Lake was accorded one site. There are no allocations for Buckley, but there are 17 “at large” possibilities. I-502 gave governing authority to the Washington State Liquor Control Board, which is taking applications from potential sellers and will

‘Family caregiving’ workshops available to public The vast majority of health care provided in the United States – 89 percent of it – happens at home. Nearly one in three households is involved in family caregiving, either directly or indirectly. But for most caregivers, there is little training to meet the challenges that come along with being a family caregiver. “The Secrets of Family Caregiving” is a 90-minute exploration of successfully meeting the varied needs that come along with that role. Topics will include creating

a safe environment, maintaining medical records and providing medical care, communicating with healthcare professionals, community services and resources, respite opportunities, balancing caregiving with other life needs and self-care for the caregiver. Presenters include case managers from Pierce County Aging and Disability Resources and other community professionals. The workshop is free and will be repeated three times at different locations:

• from 12:10 to 1250 p.m. Feb. 7 in the Pierce County Annex main meeting room, 2401 S. 35th St. in Tacoma. • from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Feb. 8 in the Sound View Building, 3602 Pacific Ave. in Tacoma. • from 12:10 to 12:50 p.m. Feb. 12 in the Rainier Conference Room of the County City Building, 930 Tacoma Ave. S. “Family caregiving is now the new normal for healthcare,” said Aaron Van Valkenburg, Pierce County Aging and Disability Resources manager. “Aging & Disability

Resources is deeply involved in helping family members provide effective care by using the best resources our community can offer. We want to pass along that experience and knowledge and help anyone who is or will soon be in that caregiver role so they can provide the best care and take care of themselves too.” The workshop is free and open to the public. No RSVP is required. For workshop details call the Pierce County Aging and Disability Resource Center at 253-798-4600.

Free class for those needing a will

Advance registration is required; to reserve a seat call 253-798-8787. Participants will have the chance to learn about wills from the ground up and ask questions in the process. Among the issues that will be discussed: who needs a will and why; what’s in a will; using online wills; when an attorney is needed; updating a wills and do-it-yourself wills. “Most of us don’t have a great sense of urgency to create a will,” said Aaron Van Valkenburg, manager of Pierce County

Aging and Disability Resources. “Especially for younger adults, daily life keeps us pretty occupied. But the consequences of not having a will can be tragic for the survivors. The best thing people can do is get good, honest information about wills to dispel some of the misconceptions.” The workshop is free and open to the public. For more information about the workshop itself, call the Pierce County Aging and Disability Resource Center at 253-798-4600.

Easy-to-grow orchids no longer just for the rich Meet Marianne Binetti at the Northwest Flower and Garden Show show that runs Feb. 5-9 at the Washington State Convention Center. She will speak at 11:30 a.m. Thursday, Feb 6, on “Oh the Plants I Have Killed” and will be available for free consultations at the Cascade Water Alliance booth from 2 to 4 p.m. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. You are welcome to bring photos of your yard to the booth for design advice. During this first week of February it may still be gray outdoors but inside, at the Northwest Flower and Garden Show, there is a rainbow of orchids offering tropical delights. This year the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle has acres of blooming display gardens that will jump-start your spring fever with f lowers, fragrance and artistic art forms of all types. But if you want to get up close and personal or take some macro-shots of incredible beauty featuring easy-to-grow houseplants, don’t miss the walk-through display garden “Fifty Shades of Orchid.” The Northwest Orchid Society and garden creators Joe Grienauer and Jeff Morgan have

The Compleat Home Gardener Marianne Binetti Columnist

designed a giant painter’s palette showing off a rainbow of hues that feature the orchids that naturally f lower indoors during the winter months. No wonder the popularity of growing orchids has bloomed during the past decade as new varieties and a much lower prices make this potted houseplant accessible to everyone. “Orchid growing was once the hobby of the very rich, but today anyone can pick out an orchid plant even at the supermarket and have success keeping that plant in flower for nine months or more,” said Grienauer, coowner of Emerald City Orchids and a show seminar speaker. If you can’t make it to the NWFG show this week or catch Greinauer’s orchid growing seminar at 11:15 a.m. Sunday, then why not eavesdrop on the phone conversation I had with Joe about his favorite topic:

MB: I know orchids are super easy for you to grow, but what type of orchid would you recommend for a beginning grower or to someone who has had no luck with houseplants? Joe: The phalaenopsis or butterfly orchid is the easiest to grow in our climate and they are really low maintenance plants. Just buy a phalaenopsis orchid plant with buds or just beginning to bloom and place it in filtered light. Water once a week and enjoy. MB: What if you want to try something more exotic? Are any unusual orchids easy to grow? Joe: I like to suggest the Brassia orchids to those who want really amazing colors like brown, orange or green flowers. This group of orchids are aggressive growers and heavy bloomers and almost as easy to grow as the phalaenopsis. MB: What are the most common mistakes that beginners make when growing orchids? Joe: They water too much and put the plants in a sunny window. Orchids like filtered sunlight and they grow on the trunks of trees in the wild. They need perfect drainage and little water. MB: So do you recommend

the ice cube trick? Placing two ice cubes on top of the orchid’s roots every Sunday? Joe: If portioning out the water supply by using ice cubes instead of a watering can works for you then use it. Orchids do like cooler night temps especially to get them to rebloom, but the tropical orchids we sell and display have never met an ice cube in their natural habitat. I just set my potted orchids in the sink once a week, water, let them drain in the sink then place the plants back near filtered sunlight. I’ll give them more water in the summer or if they are really growing fast. Don’t let your orchid’s roots sit in drainage water. MB: What type of fertilizer do you use? Joe: Mostly anything I can get my hands on but I dilute every fertilizer because you can harm an orchid plant by feeding it too much. I put one-eighth or onefourth of a teaspoon of liquid plant food into a gallon watering can to fertilize. MB. So growing orchids is your full-time job? Joe: Yes, I love it. I also speak to garden clubs and other groups about orchid growing and encourage people to join

the Northwest Orchid Society. The society members are the great group of volunteers who supply the rainbow of orchids for our display at the show. Of course, I have my retail shop in Georgetown and also supply flower shops and other retailers with cut orchids and orchid plants.

Well friends, I’m not much into “health food” and I’m not overly concerned with the fare I consume, though there’s all kinds of scientific evidence to indicate I should be. I’m sure we’re eating a lot of garbage that, if it doesn’t permanently and irreversibly damage our bodies, isn’t doing us any good. I mean, that chicken we ingest on a regular basis has spent its entire life in a foot-square box and is pumped full of more drugs then Dow Chemical can readily name or comprehend and there isn’t a scientist anywhere in the country who has a clear idea what all that junk might do to us in the long run. Therefore, making a half-hearted effort to avoid preservatives like Calcium Propionate and everyone’s favorWally DuChateau ite cold cereal additive Columnist BHT (whatever that is), it gives me a great delight to pick up a jar of Adam’s peanut-butter and discover that the only ingredient in the mix is peanuts. However, those peanuts may not have been grown on “organic” farms, so the product might be drowned in dimethylamine and ethyulhexyl – I defy anyone to pronounce either one – or other pesticides. (If it isn’t one damn thing it’s another.) So, it’s nice to know the food-stuff in Kelly’s Mercantile is free of all such foreign chemicals; i.e., free of pesticides, fertilizers, preservatives and artificial colors and taste enhancers. Yet, I wouldn’t call the place a grocery store because the inventory is very limited. One day last week, I sat down with the owner, Kelly Bauer. She’s an attractive, effervescent, very healthy young lady who said she discontinued most of the grocery products because QFC carries a lot of the same natural and organic stuff and, of course, she can’t compete with a corporate giant like that. Kelly said the Mercantile is a restaurant and coffee shop in which all the salads, sandwiches and soups are made from scratch using natural, organic ingredients; that is, ingredients from organic farms and orchards. The meat comes from cattle raised on chemical-free, natural, open ranges, not feedlots. Judging from the many signs and labels, nearly everything in the place is “gluten free.” Even the beer. (I’m rather ashamed to admit I don’t even know what “gluten” is.) Her chefs, Ky Loop and Mike Harding, used to cook at Café Panini. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner and offer an all-day brunch on Sundays. It’s an unusual menu with many items I’ve never seen before, but I’m anxious to try. There are 21 varieties of wine. On Friday and Saturday evenings, the place has live music featuring large jazz bands (14 pieces), small jazz combos, blues musicians and single performers of one type or another. Yet the atmosphere is nothing like a bar. It’s strictly a family-friendly kind of place. Drop by some day, say hello and get an espresso. Or, if you need to kick-start a synapse or two, get a cup of their black, drip coffee. I’m quite certain that stuff will leave you sufficiently wired for and entire afternoon.

LAST WEEK: Would this year’s Seattle football team beat the 2005 Seahawks?

I am writing on the issue of the White River technology levy. The reason I believe my input has a great impact is because I’m currently enrolled at White River; I have a better perspective on why we should vote “yes.” Over the last four years here there has been a dramatic change. Not only have we gained technology, we’ve also gone away from textbooks. The reason this has had such an impact on my learning is because in my previous years all I’ve done is memorize a million facts. Once the test came around my grade depended on how I could retain information I’ve memorized. We would sit there, stare at a textbook and cram as much in our heads as possible.

Now it is entirely different. I come into class and immediately grab a laptop, sit down and sign in to what we call Edmodo. Edmodo is a website we use as a class and school as a whole. It’s not only helped us receive updates in history but as well as our senior project, upcoming school events and letting us know what we missed the day before so the teacher doesn’t have a bunch of students interrupting them and asking what we did yesterday. Edmodo also helps facilitate communication and collaboration among students and teachers, and is not limited to the 50 classroom minutes. Also the way that exams have changed is we don’t memorize facts just to write them down; we now apply information to specific situations and use information to make critical decisions. To me this is a real test if you understand the material. Not only has technology helped improve my learning but it has educated me on how to vote. I found I

am moderate, leaning toward conservative. The most important part about this is I haven’t learned something I’m going to lose right when school gets out. I’m now set for my future to be more of an educated voter so I can help this country grow for the good. Having transitioned into this style of learning has really sat well with me because I can vote for what I believe in not just what I’ve been persuaded in. I challenge you to next time you hear someone saying technology in school isn’t important, ask them what history and a textbook did for their future as a United States citizen.

Companies carry a lot of clout My eyes have been opened by reading a book about the enormous influence corporations have on our lives. It’s a major and troubling trend. I’m reading (actually, listening to) “The Fine Print: How Big Companies ‘Use Plain English’ to Rob You Blind” (2012), by David Cay Johnston, a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter. During the past 20 or so years big corporations have gained greater and greater control of the political process and the economy. They are often acting in ways that drain money from the pockets of average Americans and put them into the bank accounts of the wealthy and powerful. These corporations go against the principles of capitalism by creating oligopolies (rule by a few) to raise costs for their customers and Main Street Americans. As I was listening to the book on my way to Costco, Johnston’s words caused me to think about corporations I have observed in recent months and years that are operating with impunity in Washington state. Let’s start with Costco. During 2011 initiative vote Costco spent $22 million to help end the 78-year state monopoly over the sale of hard liquor. Most of the liquor profits have gone to Costco and similar large-scale dealers, while naïve small retailers who bought up the former state liquor stores have gone out of business by the scores. Today, a little more than two years later, according to John Gillie, in the Dec. 7, 2013, edition of The Morning News Tribune: “Small-store owners say the distributors, particularly the state’s two largest, Southern and Youngs, which

In Focus Rich Elfers Columnist

control more than 93 percent of the liquor distribution in Washington under the new privatized system, are employing aggressive pricing to win business from the bar and restaurant trade. More than 60 percent have gone under.” So, it seems that in the name of free-market capitalism we have exchanged one liquor monopoly run by the state for an oligopoly run by two distributors, plus the big box stores like Costco, Fred Meyer and Safeway. The result, for several reasons, is higher hard liquor prices. A second example of big corporation control is the recent Boeing holdup of the state over where they would build their next line of 777Xs. The governor and the Legislature rapidly ponied up $9.8 billion-plus in tax incentives to encourage Boeing to build the 777X in Washington rather than all the other states who competed for it. The only one who showed any courage was the IAM, the aerospace union that said “No!” to a first contract offer by 67 percent and then approved it a few weeks later by a slim 51 percent margin. The third example goes back a little farther and may cause some grief because the Seahawks will either have won or lost the Super Bowl by the time you read this. This

time it was homegrown billionaire and owner of the Seahawks Paul Allen who pushed his weight around and caused the state to build a new stadium giving the Seahawks $300 million from state coffers in 1997 by passing a narrowly-won state referendum. Allen’s own contribution in 1997 of about $200 million was worth $823 million in 2006 and is probably worth a billion or more today. When Attorney General Rob McKenna asked to see the Seahawks’ financial records in 2006 as stipulated by the contract, Allen said “no” and it stuck. Seahawk ticket prices have now risen to the point where it is hard for anyone but the wealthy to afford them. As Morning News Tribune columnist Peter Callaghan noted in his June 6, 2006, column: “It’s a classic example of the public-private partnership in which the public takes all the risk and the private takes all the profit. Fans don’t want to hear it. Get to the Super Bowl and you can do darn near anything.” These are just three local examples of where big corporations tell the states and even the federal government to jump, and they ask, “How high?” Johnston’s book is an eye-opener, clearly demonstrating a more modern, sophisticated version of the late 19th century Robber Barons. Unfortunately, now as then, the federal government, as well as most state governments, are under the boots of the super wealthy. We could use a few more crusading journalistic muckrakers and another Teddy Roosevelt to save us from this corporate scourge.

LETTERS FROM 6 how technology grew over the past few years. We are able to learn things from current events going on around the world. I am grateful for the technology we have, we use it a lot and it comes in handy. On the other side of that, I would rather go back to using books. A couple of years ago, we were still using books. We would have to go to the

Wednesday, February 5, 2014 • The Enumclaw Courier-Herald • Page 7 computer lab in order to use the desktops. When we were using books we were learning about things that were 50-60 years ago. I’m not one to enjoy learning but when the teacher says “go grab a book and sit down,” I got excited because we got to work with partners. Whether the teacher picked or not we got to make new friends and talk to new people. Things we learned about then were pretty fascinating to learn about, such as how

George Washington got to be president. Granted, we can learn about that on the computer also but I believe giving us assignments to do only on computers will prepare us for doing nothing but sitting at our computer all day long. I don’t want that lifestyle for me, my little siblings or my future children. Now that we use computers, it is nice for looking up current events but for some people being on the computer all day long may start to strain their

eyes causing them to get headache after headache. I do appreciate having the technology that we have. It’s easy to use and always up-to-date. The computers tend to run slow at times at that point all you hear in class in “computers are down again” and “this computer is a piece of crap.” Why, because it’s not working at the moment? The technology advancements that we keep getting are spoiling these kids. I feel even though kids draw in the

Barbara experienced significant relief from tremors following single-session treatment with Gamma Knife.

Gamma Knife for tremors brings back simple pleasures ®

Barbara's shakiness had made her retreat from her active social life. "It's hard to go out to lunch when you can't pick up a spoon," she says. Relieved when she received a diagnosis of essential tremor, Barbara thought, "I can live with that." But the shaking worsened until she couldn't sign her own name. Barbara chose to have non-invasive treatment at South Sound Gamma Knife in Tacoma. Just five weeks later, she showed remarkable improvement. A member of the Crow Indian Nation and former master gardener, she's enjoying maintaining her Native American heritage and social connections and working in her garden. Barbara says, "It's great to be able to sign my name again!" Gamma Knife "radiosurgery" is a single-session treatment offering significant relief of tremor symptoms. Gamma Knife also treats other disorders of the brain, from tumors to trigeminal neuralgia.

Christopher Hurst, 31st Legislative District

Members of House Give kids the tools urge support for to help create a Enumclaw M&O As your state representa- bright future tives, we are encouraging the voters in the Enumclaw School District to vote “yes” on the M&O levy that is currently on the ballot. In last week’s edition of The Courier-Herald, Sen. Roach, also from the 31st Legislative District, was in error about what is in the ballot measure that is currently before the voters; it has absolutely nothing to do with bonds that would pay for buildings. This measure is about paying for school operations that educate our kids. Although the majority of the district’s budget comes from state funding, 20 percent of their budget is dependent on passage of this levy. Last year, both of us supported the state budget that included a substantial increase in resources after years of dramatic cuts to local school districts. Enumclaw School District has been diligent in spending resources wisely and has a consistent track record of clean financial audits. By voting “yes,” your tax dollars will help pay for the day-to-day operation

I believe that children are our future. Teach them well and let them lead the way… sound familiar? Well it’s so very true. We need to give our children the tools that help them create a future for everyone. This starts with their education. Currently, the children of the White River School District need upgrades to the existing technology infrastructure. These are just the basics to keep our children up to speed with the ever-changing technology all around them. We need to ensure that our children are on a fair playing field with the rest of the county, state and nationally when it comes to their education and specifically technology. The world we live in is technology and it will continue to change and grow. We need to ensure that our children’s education continues to change and grow with that technology. Vote “yes” for our children. Vote “yes” for our future. Rachel Marecle Buckley

Doctors’ Discovery Helps Diabetes

PHILADELPHIA – A team of doctors has found that a formulation of exotic sounding herbs and spices gives diabetics new hope. The formula, called Cinnatrol™ promotes healthy blood sugar levels by effectively metabolizing glucose into energy. In a research study, all patients taking just one capful of the liquid (one ounce) daily, dramatically lowered their blood sugar levels compared to a placebo group. Another scientific study found that an ingredient in Cinnatrol™ made insulin 20 times more capable converting blood sugar to energy. While individual results vary, one patient in the study lowered his blood sugar from 220-245 to the 100-130 range in only

28 days, despite being instructed not to change his dietary habits or physical activity. Some patients, under their doctors care, have been able to reduce or eliminate their need for diabetic drugs. Scientists say that Cinnatrol™ actually helps diabetic drugs to work more efficiently. Additional information is available at Cinnatrol™ is available without a prescription at pharmacies and nutrition stores or call 1-877-581-1502. Now at select

Why does God have to be ‘or’ rather than ‘and’?

IN THE MILITARY Army Pvt. Spencer R. Bowers has graduated from One Station Unit Training at the U.S. Army Infantry School, Fort Benning, Columbus, Ga. The training consisted of basic mili-

tary training and advanced individual training. During basic training, the trainee received instruction in drill and ceremonies, military customs and courtesies, map reading, tactics, basic rifle marksmanship, physical fitness, field training, and first aid skills. During AIT, the soldier received

and asked him what he meant. He began to direct my attention to both Solomon and to John the Baptist. Solomon was the richest and wisest man to ever live while John the Baptist was the greatest of the prophets. Solomon wore splendid clothing, feasted daily and lived in a palace with more women than any man should. John the Baptist wore camel skin, ate locus and honey and lived in the wilderness. Solomon lived to be an old man while John was beheaded in his early 30s. To look at both of these men you can make up two different theories of how God wants us to live. Both men were blessed by God and did what they were asked to by him. Yet one lived in splendor while the other lived in lack and imprisoned. We can make a doc-

trine of prosperity from one and a doctrine of suffering from another. Why does God have to be “or.” Why does it have to be suffering or prosperity? Why can’t God be suffering and prosperity? Why does God have to be free will or predestination? Why does God have to be a God of war or a God of peace? The more I thought about all of this the more I realize that God is big enough and complex enough to be both. I think we limit God when we buy into one aspect of God and say he can only be this way or he that way when he is big enough and amazing enough to be both. My prayer now is, “God be that big in me.” I want God to be that complex in me so that I can represent him the way he deserves to be represented.

Anthony A. Maras “Spike”

October 23, 1921 - January 30, 2014 Spike’s idea of life and death was that it was a win-win situation... The Lord graciously took him home on January 30, 2014. He was a man whose word or handshake was as good as any signed contract. He had an unending work ethic learned from the age of 10, when he was orphaned by both parents. He was firing a steam donkey by age 14 and left school to work with his mentor, Fred Davis and older brother, Percy, to form Davis and Maras Logging Company. In 1942 he married his wife Helen and three weeks later left for service in the Army Air Force. He was attached to Headquarters Company of the 21st Service Group in Australia. They made their way through the islands from Australia to Okinawa where they were staged for the invasion of Japan. When the war ended he arrived home in October 1945 and happily joined his logging company in Packwood where they were credited with cutting down the biggest Douglas Fir ever felled. A cross section is currently on display at the Lakewood Library. With the rapid disappearance of the ‘Big Timber’ he changed his profession to one in the sand and gravel business and became an expert in underwater mining. After learning the trade at Western Sand & Gravel in Maple Valley, he was on a vacation on Orcas Island and five minutes off the ferry he realized that everyone was pouring their own concrete. Six month later, Sea Islands Sand and Gravel was in operation and their first concrete delivery was to Rosario Resort. After that he was onto the next adventure and was employed as a crushing foreman at Pacific Sand & Gravel in Centralia. During that time he was contacted by Pacific International to head a crew on the island of Majuro in the Marshall Islands to increase the size of the island so that an electrical plant could be installed. Although he accomplished many outstanding things during his lifetime, he always said his claim to fame was the love of his family and his Lord. His happiest days were those spent when he was instrumental in the forming and building of Country Bible Church, serving as Director of Christian Education, Sunday school teacher and singing tenor in the choir. He dearly loved music, singing in church quartets and usually music from his early years. His main goal in life was that his family have the best he could provide and he worked hard to accomplish that. In his many foreman and superintendent jobs he was the first to grab a shovel or to climb onto a broken down machine. He was an avid Bible scholar and could completely wear out a Bible in short order, filling it with his many thoughts and reference notes. Those who were waiting for him are his parents, Grace and Anthony Maras; his brother, P.J. Maras; sister, Virginia; and Fred Davis. Spike is survived by his wife, of 71 years, Helen Maras of Enumclaw, daughter Marilyn Cade of Federal Way, sons Michael and wife Lorrie Maras of Enumclaw, Mark and wife Kathy Maras of Portland, Oregon and Matt Maras of Centralia; grandchildren are Jennifer Cade of Federal Way, Joan Maras Lawson and husband Wade of Newcastle, Jon Maras and wife Jodi of Bonney Lake, Ben, Katie and Alex Maras of Portland, Oregon; great-grandchildren, the light of his life, Maras and Max Lawson and Emmarie and Lawson Maras. Suggested contributions, in Spike’s memory, to Hillside Community Church (formerly Country Bible Church) To his caregivers and staff at Living Court that have so lovingly supported and cared for Spike and Helen, we express our heartfelt gratitude. A memorial service will be held at Living Court on Saturday, February 8 at 2pm. Spike will be laid to rest with military honors at Tacoma National Cemetery. 975381

Undefeated gymnasts head to postseason By Kevin Hanson Senior Writer

The powerhouse Enumclaw High gymnastics squad completed an undefeated regular season Jan. 29 and now prepares for postseason competition. That’s where the program has really shined. In its short, three-year history, the team started by taking second place at the state meet and followed that with state championships the past two seasons. In the regular season’s final meet, EHS tallied 175.8

team points to get past Bonney Lake, 150.8, Sumner, 132.95, and Tahoma, 128.6. The Hornets hosted the meet at Peak Gymnastics. Enumclaw’s Olivia Bannerot took all-around honors after winning the vault, bars, beam and floor exercise. Teammate Victoria Hernandez was second in the allaround, having placed second in the vault and bars, third in the floor exercise and fourth on the team. Emily Berte was third all-around after placing second on the beam and in the floor exercise, fourth in the vault and fifth on the bars. With the regular season behind them, Enumclaw High gymnastics can focus on meets leading up the state cham-

pionships. Saturday brings a subdistrict meet at Mount Rainier High School, brining together schools from the Class 2A, 3A and 4A ranks. In the 3A ranks, where Enumclaw High competes, the top two teams, top three all-around performers and top seven in each event will keep their season alive. Next up will be the Feb. 15 West Central District meet, also at Mount Rainier High. From that meet, top three teams and top four all-arounds will advance to state, along with the top 12 in each event. The state meet is set for Feb. 21 and 22 in the Tacoma Dome exhibition hall.

to beat the second-place Seahawks. Enumclaw did a good job of taking advantage of Peninsula’s mismatches. The duo of Bryce Peterson and Zac Webb torched Peninsula with a combined 45 points and neutralizing the Seahawks’ star guard, JaQuori McLaughlin. Peterson dropped in 24 points and four steals. Webb scored 21 and grabbed 12 rebounds. “We always try to find the best matchup for us to attack,” coach Kellen Hall said. “They didn’t have the size to stop everyone, and based on the matchup, we went to Zac (Webb). That was both by design and opportunity.” Enumclaw’s Drake Rademacher played a dominating game in the post with 15 points. 10 rebounds and five assists. “Drake’s game has advanced so much this year,” Hall said. “He’s learned to use his size inside, as well as use his abilities on the perimeter. He’s such a tough matchup for teams because of how well he can play both inside and out.” In the fourth quarter Webb helped the Hornets move ahead of a tenacious Peninsula assault. “Zac was a monster for us,” Hall said. “He’s been a glue guy for us all season and has been a huge part of our success. He’s found his role and how to play to his strengths.” The Hornets end the regular season at 7 p.m. Friday at Bonney Lake and the subdistrict tournament begins Feb. 12.

Superintend. Msg. RTI School Board Turn Up Positive FFA Cleaning Up Calendar Daffodil Princess

MESSAGE FROM JANEL Are The Kids Learning and How Do We Know?

The staff in the district is committed to high levels of learning for all students for success beyond high school. To achieve this difficult, but vitally important purpose we work hard to make sure we are clear about what students must know in every subject, grade, and course.  We also recognize that simply being clear about what students should know is never enough.  Across the district we focus like a laser beam on the question, “Are the kids learning, and how do we know?”  And, we seek to answer this question student by student, skill by skill. Focusing on this question has developed a results-oriented culture across the district, at every level.  It begins in the classroom with individual teachers using quick checks for understanding throughout the lesson in order to see if students are “getting it.” At the team level, our teacher teams develop common formative assessments in order to monitor the learning of each student, skill by skill, on a timely basis.  Learning attainment at the building level is monitored by our periodic district-wide benchmark assessments.  Last week across the district our teachers analyzed and compared reading and math data from the September benchmark assessments to the January scores. Targets for each for each grade level show where kids should be with oral reading fluency, reading comprehension and math. Principals and teacher teams intentionally take time to map the growth between the fall, winter, and spring reading benchmarks. That gives teams a visual model answering the question - Are you/teacher and team adding value to each student? Each team identified students who were not making progress and developed specific plans for them. Progress is monitored monthly. All of this work helps us make decisions about which students need additional time, support and enrichment.  We also use the results of our assessments to reflect on the effectiveness of our instructional practices and adopted resources. In short, everyone in the White River School District—board of directors, staff, and administrators—work extremely hard to help more students learn more.  Ensuring high levels of learning for all students is a difficult, complex, and incremental journey.  But, it’s a critical journey that is certainly worthwhile.  After all, these are our kids!

Graph shows clear growth from fall to winter for all first graders in White River in the area of reading fluency. There is a much larger number of students in the “established” range for this essential skill, and far fewer students in the “deficient” range. 974468

RESPONSE TO INTERVENTION White River’s Director of Assessment and Curriculum, Mr. Mike Jacobsen, has been invited to participate in a Response to Intervention (RTI) Secondary Summit in Washington, D.C. later this month. This is an honor for him and for White River. Other invitees include university researchers, authors, State education department staff and others involved in the national efforts to develop effective ways to help struggling students. The Summit is organized by the National Center on Intensive Intervention.

TURN UP THE POSITIVE During the week of February 18-21, the White River High School  leadership class will be hosting a “Positivity Drive.” The mission of this event is to emphasize an uplifting and positive environment for students and staff members, reflecting the theme for the year – “Turn up the Positive!” The A.S.B executive council annually meets during a summer to select a theme. Senior student Andrea Entz generated the initial idea and the group developed the concept. The “Positivity Drive” will consist of four music-themed spirit days, decorations around school, student-led activities, and several lunch activities that are led by clubs within the school. Their goals include distribution of at least 2,000 Hornet-Grams written by students and teachers, expressing appreciation of one another in a positive way. They are an uplifting way to show students that people care about them. The week ends with a pep assembly for all students. White River High School hopes to “turn our positive up to 11!”

These FFA members competed at the 2013 Washington State FFA Convention in Pullman The White River FFA Chapter will celebrate National FFA Week February 11th- 14th. There are many chapter activities planned including a breakfast, laser tag, bowling with Enumclaw FFA, and a BBQ. As the face of agriculture has changed, so has the White River FFA Chapter. The chapter was once known for its abundance of animal projects and log show teams. Nowadays, they take pride in producing tomorrow’s leaders with skills they need to be successful in the job market. Raising animals and learning about the ever changing field of agriculture and natural resources are vital to the program and provide opportunities for some members. But today’s students in FFA also participate in numerous Career Development Events (CDE) that focus on polishing leadership skills important in today’s society. They also raise market animals for the Northwest Junior Livestock show, give back to the Buckley area through community service, and participate in numerous recreational activities. In recent years, White River has competed successfully in large number of events at the state level, had representation on the Washington State FFA Officer Team, and members compete at the National FFA Convention. Please join us in celebrating today’s youth, tomorrow’s leaders, and our agriculture industry.

Our Transportation Department employees not only diligently drive our students to and from school on a daily basis, they have also adopted a section of Highway 410 between the White River bridge and Mundy Loss Road for litter clean up! Four times per year, they don safety vests and gloves and do their part to keep our town looking its best. You’ll find similar groups showing civic pride in other areas of the school district too. The Foothills Elementary PTA has adopted their section of 234th Avenue. White River High School PTSA is organizing a campus beautification effort on February 22nd. Participants are welcome to bring their own gardening gloves and weeding tools beginning at 9am.

SCHOOL BOARD CORNER STUDY AND SURVEY White River School District has undergone a comprehensive review of our school facilities called a Study and Survey. This is an extensive and thorough analysis of each of our school buildings, athletic facilities, and playgrounds, right down to the the furnaces, roofs, insulation, kitchens and offices and so on. The results of the study will guide our administrators and school board in prioritizing the work to be accomplished in coming years as we improve our facilities. Our goals include seeing that our schools match the needs of student learning and staff training, and support evolving technology. If you have background in construction, engineering or the building trades and would like to be part of a facilities committee, please contact Mr. Keith Banks at 360 829-3822. 974464

The collective experience of Cathy’s two-term service in education on the Enumclaw School Board and Christopher’s 25 years in law enforcement working as a Police Detective and Commander help us craft common-sense solutions in Olympia. Much has been made of the partisan divide, but we are proof that building a coalition from the middle outward serves all of us better. We both supported the 2013-15 state operating budget passed last June, key job-creation reforms, educational outcomes and teacher support measures and a host of other bills. We work together as a team to represent you. Call or e-mail us with your questions, concerns and ideas. We hope this mid 2014 session update keeps us connected. We look forward to hearing from you and are honored to serve the people of the 31st Legislative District. Sincerely,

Aerospace is critical to our state’s economy We faced our greatest challenge in decades last fall when Boeing announced their intent to move their production line of the next generation of commercial aircraft out of Washington state. This would have initiated a competitive bidding process between many states. The Governor called a special session of the Legislature last November and we passed legislation to help keep Boeing here in Washington. Rep. Hurst during House committee meeting.

The state operating budget The good news is that the state’s economy is growing. Our economic recovery is finally underway. State and local unemployment rates are dropping and, as consumers increase spending, tax collections are improving. There is reason for optimism. Consumer spending is proof that folks are feeling more confident about the future.

Engineering and aerospace machinist positions provide the livelihood for many of our friends and neighbors. For every job at Boeing, five more jobs are created at companies that contract with the aerospace business. Aerospace revenues in Washington state totaled $51.2 billion in 2012. Securing production of the

Our local economy As we continue to recover from the Great Recession, it’s important we recognize our personal responsibility to help improve our local economy by buying locally or American-made products. We can return manufacturing jobs home to America that were lost to China by buying products that are made here. Last year, we were contacted by Chris Lyons, an owner of the new Carbon Glacier Distillery in Wilkeson. Chris was seeking solutions that would make his local business more competitive with larger out-of-state and foreign companies that ship products here. We introduced House Bill 1149 to address his concern and help keep small businesses like his in our communities. We have also led efforts in the Legislature to reform our unemployment insurance and workers’ compensation programs to keep large rate increases from taking place during tough economic times. Without these changes we would have lost many jobs at a time we could least afford it.

In a bipartisan effort, we funded an additional $1 billion for K-12 education last year. We bolstered higher education to allow for a tuition freeze at our state’s institutions for the first time in nearly 30 years, and funded support programs and services for our most vulnerable. The current budget projections are positive and we will not need to make major changes in this year’s supplemental budget. We are confident we can conclude our business on time.

777X will ensure tens of thousands of additional aerospace jobs for generations to come. We were also careful to add language in the legislation that will hold Boeing accountable. If they do not live up to their agreements with the state, billions of dollars in tax incentives will go away.

As a team, we will continue to support policies that put people back to work. Rep. Hurst hears testimony in House committee meeting. Paid Advertisement

Spanfellner, Bort married in Kent

New investments in K-12 education The end product of last year’s session was a major win for students, teachers and parents. The $15.1 billion we spent on K-12 education represents an additional $1 billion investment over the previous budget. We gave educators back the 1.9 and 3 percent pay they sacrificed when dealing with the realities of previous budgets. We also provided funding for fullday kindergarten, class-size reductions, pupil transportation and materials, supplies and operating costs. We put additional resources into the Learning Assistance Program, or LAP, which helps our most vulnerable students, among other investments that make a difference in our classrooms. The state Supreme Court, in the McCleary v. State landmark education funding lawsuit, ruled the state must follow the state Rep. Dahlquist reading to school children. constitution that mandates K-12 education to be treated as the state’s “paramount duty” and be funded before other programs. The current budget was a giant step forward in complying with the court’s ruling. An optimistic economic outlook gives us hope for the future, but a sound education system ensures that we will have an educated work force that keeps our economy moving, our crime and drug-abuse rates lower and employers bringing more jobs to Washington. More remains to be done as we work to reach our goal of full basic education funding by 2018.

Public safety, protecting our vulnerable citizens

Whitney Spanfellner and Tyler Bort were united in marriage during a downtown Kent ceremony on Aug. 16, 2013. The bride is the daughter of Vicki Johnson of Enumclaw and Ron and Kim Spanfellner of Molalla, Ore. She graduated from Enumclaw High School in 2005, attended Gene Juarez Academy and works at Main Street Salon in Sumner. The groom is the son of Chris and Rita Bort. He graduated from Enumclaw High School in 2005 and is employed by KC Quality Construction. Jennifer Dewey was the maid of honor and bridesmaids were Hanna Spanfellner, Nancy Gehr and Kelsey Fox. The best man was Michael Beall and groomsmen were Jason Bort, Tyler Maloney and Matt Schneider. A reception to celebrate the couple took place at the Enumclaw VFW Hall on Oct. 12, 2013. The bride surprised the crowd by singing a solo with the band at the end of the evening. The couple enjoyed a honeymoon to Playa del Carmen in January.

Murray and Roberts exchange vows Megan Murray, daughter of George and Peggy Murray, married Lance Roberts, son of Joe and Lynn Roberts on Oct. 12, 2013. They were married at Northwest Family Church in Auburn. The bride is a 2003 graduate of Enumclaw High School and later attended Central Washington University to get a degree in education. The groom is from Culver, Ore., and is a graduate of Central Oregon Community College. He worked with the Jefferson County Fire District before moving to Ukraine. The two met in Ukraine while volunteering as missionaries. The bride’s sisters, Kathryn and Alison Murray, were bridesmaids and longtime friend Alejandra Schock was the matron of honor. The groom’s lifelong friend, Scott Huston, was best man and Levi and Landon Roberts, brothers of the groom, were the groomsmen. The couple plan to return to Ukraine to live.

Garcia, Wilke are wed at Danish Hall

Last year’s focus was on the influence of drugs or alcohol (DUI) and child sex-trade legislation with regard to public safety measures. The state of Washington is now recognized as one of the two top states promoting innovative and effective legislation that cracks down on child prostitution.

Maria Garcia and Joseph Wilke were married during a Nov. 2, 2013, ceremony at Enumclaw’s Danish Hall. The bride is the daughter of Juan and Conception Garcia of Mexico. The groom is the son of Dave Wilke of Council Bluffs, Iowa, and Susan Heiser of Enumclaw. Serving as best man was Gera Garcia and the honor attendant was Susan Heiser. Both the bride and groom are employed at Hill Aero Systems in Enumclaw. They are making their home in Buckley.

We worked together and sponsored legislation that tripled the sentences for vehicular homicides caused by a drunk driver and a bill that places harsher restrictions Rep. Dahlquist receives Legislator of the Year Award from Jack L. Simington of Fraternal Order of Police on repeat offenders with their and Carl Burke. second DUI arrest.

Prices subject to change without notice.


NOTICE Washington State law requires wood sellers to provide an invoice (receipt) that shows the s e l l e r ’s a n d b u y e r ’s name and address and the date delivered. The invoice should also state the price, the quantity delivered and the quantity upon which the price is based. There should be a statement on the type and quality of the wood. When you buy firewood write the seller’s phone number and the license plate number of the delivery vehicle. The legal measure for firewood in Washington is the cord or a fraction of a cord. Estimate a c o r d by v i s u a l i z i n g a four-foot by eight-foot space filled with wood to a height of four feet. Most long bed pickup trucks have beds that are close to the four-foot by 8-foot dimension. To m a k e a f i r e w o o d complaint, call 360-9021857. WeightsMeasures/Fire woodinformation.aspx

Did you know that heart disease is the leading cause of death for women? It’s a major problem in the United States. Every year, 715,000 Americans have a heart attack and 600,000 people die from heart disease – that’s 1 out of every 4 deaths. That’s why February is officially heart health month. We want our customers and associates to be aware of the dangers of this deadly disease so that we can build healthier lives free of cardiovascular disease and stroke. At QFC, the coin boxes located at the checkstands will benefit your local American Heart Association from February 2 – March 1. Last year, your change helped raise more than $14,000 for your local AHA chapter. Visit pugetsound to learn more about ways you can prevent this disease in your life. Paid Adver tisement
