YMCA plans to build facility in Kent BY STEVE HUNTER firstname.lastname@example.org
After years of behind-the-scene talks with city officials and residents, the YMCA is coming to Kent. Mayor Suzette Cooke and YMCA leaders plan to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) within the next two weeks to build a $25
million recreational facility and pool. The YMCA will go up on the eastern side of what will be the city’s expanded Morrill Meadows Park along Southeast 248th Street, just east of 104th Avenue Southeast, City Parks Director Jeff Watling said at a City Council workshop on Tuesday.
“I just wanted to say thank you YMCA for joining with us in this project,” Councilwoman Deborah Ranniger said. “The impetus for this project has actually been around since 2002 when King County announced it was going to close and did close for a period [ more YMCA page 14 ]

TAKING A BOLD STEP IN EDUCATION First charter school opens in Kent BY HEIDI SANDERS email@example.com
ent’s first public charter school is up and running. Excel Public Charter School, which is using space in New Beginnings Christian Fellowship Church, 19300 108th Ave. SE, opened its doors to students on Tuesday. Students, parents and school and community representatives gathered at the school last Saturday to celebrate the opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Excel is one of eight charter schools opening throughout the state this
year. The state’s first charter school, First Place Scholars, opened last fall in Seattle. Washington voters approved the creation of charter schools in 2012. Charter schools are independent public schools operated by nonprofit organizations that are allowed more flexibility to be innovative with their educational program and are held accountable for improved student achievement. Excel, which will eventually serve students in sixth through 12th grade, has 156 sixth-and seventh-grade [ more SCHOOL page 2 ]

City might impose fire impact fee on developers to help fund three new stations BY STEVE HUNTER firstname.lastname@example.org
The city of Kent might starting charging a fire impact fee to developers to help pay for three additional fire stations in the next
dozen years to boost firefighter response times. The City Council’s Economic and Community Development Committee meeting is scheduled to vote on the proposal at 4:30 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 24. If the
three-member committee approves the fee, which would be on new developments, it goes to the full seven-member council for a vote at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 1. “The new (station) sites are based on future growth and
development,” said Jim Schneider, chief of the Kent Fire Department Regional Fire Authority (RFA). The RFA is planning to build stations in the Valley, on the East and West hills between 2019 and 2026 or so. The agency also pro-
poses to close Station 75, 15635 S.E. 272nd St., in order to move the station westward closer to Kent and open another station in the southern part of Covington. [ more FIRE page 4 ]

[ SCHOOL from page 1 ] students enrolled in the school, and will add a grade each year. “Opening one of the first charter schools in the state’s history is a heavy lift,” said Adel Sefrioui, Excel’s executive director, during the ribbon-cutting ceremony. “It requires a lot of courage and dedication.” The Rev. Leslie Braxton, pastor of New Beginnings Christian Fellowship, said he was excited to have the opportunity to house the school in the church building. “Exactly 10 years ago, the New Beginnings Christian Fellowship was birthed in the cafeteria of Renton High School,” Braxton said during the ribbon cutting. “We didn’t know where we were going, but we were going somewhere and we were driven by a vision. … Ten years later we’re in the position to allow a public school to be birthed in our facilities. The reason why we leaped at that chance to have Excel birthed here in our facilities is because we saw our own DNA in them.” Braxton said he is optimistic the school will succeed. “We’ll support the school in every way we can from a facilities standpoint and empowering them so that they have the space and the place they need to execute an effective school program,” he said. “There’s no religious content in the curriculum of the school. That’s not their job. That’s mine.
A first for Kent: From left, State Sen. Joe Fain, R-Auburn; Brooke Valentin, Excel Public Charter School board member; Roland Bradley; Benjamin Moses Bradley, seventh grader at Excel; Adel Sefrioui, Excel’s executive director; Theresa LucrisiaBradley; Leslie Braxton, senior pastor at New Beginnings Christian Fellowship; and Brenda Fincher, Kent City Council member, celebrate the ribbon cutting for Excel last Saturday. HEIDI SANDERS, Kent Reporter Our job is to throw everything we have at them so that this school becomes a model for schools locally and around the world.” Kent City Councilmember Brenda Fincher, who represented the city at the ribbon cutting, said the success of the school depends on the community. “It really does take a village to raise a child,” Fincher said. “That village and that child could improve the community and lift us all.”
State Sen. Joe Fain, R-Auburn, recounted to attendees his first meeting with Sefrioui several years ago when Sefrioui told Fain about his vision for a charter school. “He talked about the technology,” Fain said. “He talked about the hurdles and he talked about the people he wanted to get involved. He talked about the steps he was going to take. As much as I am a believer in this model and what we are doing here, I looked
at him and I thought to myself, ‘My goodness, you’re crazy.’ And he very quickly made me, and a lot of people, a believer of what is about to start here today.” Fain also addressed the students who will make up the first class at Excel and the challenges they may encounter. “This is going to be tough because it is new and it is different …,” he said. “You are going to be the ones, you students are going to be the ones to determine whether your friend learns their material and gets their homework done. That is what community is all about. That’s what this school is all about.” Theresa Lucrisia-Bradley, grandmother of Benjamin Moses Bradley, a seventh-grader at Excel, stressed to parents in the audience the importance of being involved in the school and their children’s education. “We may not always be able to be here but there’s something we can do,” Lucrisia-Bradley said. “One of the things we can do is make sure our kids are doing their homework. … Support the school in terms of being sure your students are rising to the level where they will be prepared to succeed in the future.” Lucrisia-Bradley’s husband, Roland Bradley, said as someone who retired from a career in information technology he is excited Excel will be emphasizing science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM).
“Once these kids are prepared with this and have the excitement and latch on to that gift inside that is hidden that I am hoping that they will discover here that will catapult them to new heights, catapult them to a new standard of living, allow them to provide for their family and also set an example of what can be done and what should be done if given the opportunity,” Bradley said. Benjamin Bradley joined his grandparents and the other speakers to cut the ribbon to mark the opening of the school. Following the ceremony, students and their parents toured the classrooms and met their teachers. Jerusalem Gerbrekidan of Covington said she is excited for her son, Noah Kebret, to begin sixth grade at the school. “We always wished to send Noah to private school,” Gerbrekidan said, but added that the cost was a barrier to doing so. She said when she learned that Excel was opening in Kent, she wanted Noah to attend. Noah was on the waiting list for the school in late April but got in a couple of months later. “We are so happy,” Gerbrekidan said. Noah’s younger sister, Naomi Kebret, 7, already is looking forward to attending Excel in a few years. “She wants to join the school,” Gerbrekidan said.

Standard & Poorâ€™s gives Kent â€˜very strongâ€™ bond rating BY STEVE HUNTER
The city of Kentâ€™s financial picture looks â€œvery strong,â€? according to Standard & Poorâ€™s rating services for refunding bonds and general obligation bonds. Kent received the high rating even with the cityâ€™s annual payments of $500,000 to cover operating losses at the city-owned ShoWare Center. The New York-based agency gave
the city an AA bond rating, the second highest rating, meaning the cityâ€™s capacity to meet its financial commitment or obligation is very strong, according to the report released on Aug. 7. Lower ratings include B, C and D. A strong economy helped give Kent a high rating as did the construction of Amazon.comâ€™s new facility scheduled to open next year. â€œThe cityâ€™s economic development policies, geographic position and access to transportation links
have helped it develop into a major regional warehousing and manufacturing center, and Amazon.com is building a fulfillment center in the city valued at $100 million,â€? the report said. â€œThis could generate one-time sales tax revenue for construction as well as ongoing property tax revenue increases and gross receipts tax revenue increases. Management reports that the industrial vacancy rate is at a cyclical low of 4 percent.â€? Standard & Poorâ€™s credited city

A FEDERAL GRAND JURY indicted a 43-yearold registered sex offender from SeaTac for distributing images of child rape via Twitter. Police arrested Danny Zimmerman in June after an investigation traced images of child rape to his Twitter account and his Internet protocol (IP) address, according to a U.S. Attorneyâ€™s Office media release. Zimmerman has been in custody following his arrest on state charges. He was arraigned on the indictment on Aug. 14 in U.S. District Court in Seattle. The Internet Crimes against Children Task Force, the Kent Police Department and the King County Sheriff â€™s Office investigated the case.
According to records filed in King County Superior Court and in U.S. District Court, between September 2014 and February 2015, Twitter made multiple reports to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) about images of child rape uploaded to the Internet. The reports resulted in a law enforcement investigation involving Western Washingtonâ€™s Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force. The investigation revealed that the Internet address reportedly involved in the distribution of the sexually explicit images was used by Zimmerman. Detectives also found out Zimmerman had two 1996 convictions for first-degree child molestation.

STATE ENDS CHILD LABOR LAW INVESTIGATION INTO WHL TEAMS The Washington State Department of Labor & Industries (L&I) found no violations of child labor laws by junior hockey league teams in the state, including the Kentbased Seattle Thunderbirds who play at the ShoWare Center. The agency issued a media release on Aug. 12 that it closed the case. In May, legislators clarified existing law with passage of Engrossed Senate Bill 5893. The law now states players ages 16 to 20 on junior ice hockey teams that play in publicly owned facilities are not employees, according to a L&I media release. L&I reviewed the updated language in the law, which took effect July 24, and determined it covered the central issues. In late 2013, L&I received a child labor complaint against the Western Hockey League (WHL) teams in Washington, including the Spokane Chiefs, Tri-City Americans, Everett Silvertips and Thunderbirds. The investigative file included more than 700 pages.

community development director, said at the Aug. 10 Economic and Community Development Committee meeting that the full council indicated at a recent workshop its interest and willingness to support a fire impact fee in order for the RFA to provide fire services. “Impact fees are based on growth,” Wolters said. “We’ve seen tremendous growth in population and the need for new stations and equipment. We can collect the funds to pay for that under state law.” Kent already charges a school impact fee to developers to help pay for the cost of building new schools to handle increases in population. The city also recently started to charge developers a transportation impact fee to help pay for road improvements. Fire officials want to get response times down to seven minutes, 40 seconds, Rabel said. The response times have shot up to eight minutes, 35 seconds.

“I’m trying to walk away with and understand that this is improving our overall performance - not only in saving lives - but as far as facilities if we have a fire, we are talking about eight minutes, or seven minutes,” Berrios said. “What is the critical difference between seven and eight minutes?” Rabel was ready with his answer. “When we look at patient survival, we’ve never saved a non-breathing patient when we arrive later than seven minutes, 40 seconds,” he said. “There would be a lot of response times less than that but we are trying to make sure we don’t go over 7:40 and are closer to seven minutes which is more likely that the patient survives.” The city of Kent also would need to sign an interlocal agreement with the RFA. The fire department used to be part of the city until voters in Kent, Covington and Fire District 37 approved the formation of the RFA in 2010. The agency is funded through a property tax levy and a fire benefit charge, a variable rate based on the square footage and
“Although the city’s formal budget for 2015 and 2016 suggest modest draws on reserves, the most recent 2015 estimates showing a 5 percent net general fund surplus and conservative assumptions lead us to believe that the city’s reserves could grow through 2016 and that its financial flexibility profile will remain very strong.” The agency expects the city’s financial picture to remain strong, even with a

The two men argued about living arrangements. They had lived in the same house for about two months, according to the police report. Police arrested the man for investigation of fourthdegree assault and obstructing an officer after he had fled from the scene. Officers saw the man jump from a second-floor balcony and run. An officer caught the man in the 23200 block of 63rd Avenue South after chasing him on foot for about 500 yards. The man said he ran from officers because he had warrants for his arrest.

“It feels fantastic to win the Longacres Mile. Any jockey that can win one, it’s fantastic, let alone two. I’ve gotten two in a row. This horse is fantastic.”– Leslie Mawing, after guiding Stryker Phd to the Grade 3 stakes victory
Handicapping the political racing season
“Do you agree with the state Supreme Court’s decision to fine the state each day over school spending?”
Vote online: www.kentreporter.com Last week’s poll results:
“ Have race relations improved in America? ”
Question of the week:
The political racing season opened Aug. 5 with very few fireworks. There are a handful of challenged City Council races in the cities I cover, but most candidates made it to the ballot without a battle. Deciphering the message in the plethora of unchallenged seats is similar to reading tea leaves soaked in succotash and out-ofdate buttermilk. We can call it complacency, or euphoria, or say a TV show about lying teenage girls was on and couldn’t be missed to sign up for an elected office. Platitudes are easy, truth likes to hide. In challenged races I avoid forecasting the winners, losers and whiners. I never predict the future of anything unless it involves a horse race. I could handicap a political race if I could get reliable past performances from the Daily Racing Form like I do with the Longacres Mile or Kentucky Derby. Past performances, or PPs, are charts and notes that describe how a horse ran in earlier races. PPs from the Form are not given the happy guy spin. They are facts and observations – straight, no chaser. Here are some examples of PPs I dreamed up for political races: • Fell down at the half-mile pole because it was too darned hot and the sun was in his eyes; • Finished last because he ate two Big Macs and three orders of fries last night (Mmmm – those were the days); [ BOX page 8 ]

Case of water shortages From the intersection of Southeast 210th Place and 119th Avenue Southeast, all brown lawns. Continue south on 119th and you run into Emerald Park Elementary, 5 acres of lush green heavily watered and fertilized. Water restrictions only for the taxpayer?

Supreme Court orders state to pay $100,000 a day over school spending
Let’s not be choosy over marriage
The state Supreme Court let the hammer fall on Aug. 13 in the McCleary education case, ordering the state to pay $100,000 a day and calling for Gov. Jay Inslee to call the Legislature into special session to resolve the issue. The order stated the “remedial penalty” of $100,000 per day until the Legislature “adopts a complete plan for complying with article IX, section 1 by the 2018 school year.” The Article IX preamble in the Washington Constitution states: “It is the paramount duty of the state to make ample provision for the educa- Inslee tion of all children residing within its borders, without distinction or preference on account of race, color, caste, or sex.” The Court ruling stated the fine is to be placed into a “segregated account for the benefit of basic education.” The Supreme Court found the state in contempt in Sept. 11, 2014, but held back sanctions until the completion of the 2015 Legislative Session. “After the close of that session and following multiple special sessions, the state still has offered no plan for achieving full constitutional compliance by the deadline the legislature itself adopted,” the Aug. 13 Court order stated.
I totally agree with that piece, “Marriage, belief and change” (Ray Still, Our Corner column, Kent Reporter, Aug. 14). No, I am not gay. And yes, I am a Catholic and I believe in the teachings of my faith. And as Still puts it, the “greatest commandment” of the Christian faith is to “love our Lord and to love each other”, and how we can’t love God if we don’t love our neighbor.” Indeed. True, there are passages in the Bible that say that marriage should only be between a man and a woman. But I don’t think the Bible should be read literally. Most passages in the Bible are proverbs. No, I don’t profess to be an

To quote Mr. Still once again: “Any couple that comes before God to be joined together in spirit, whether they be different or same-sex, are equal in every way, including God’s love.” And, that reminds me of a scene in the Bible where when children saw Jesus, they all ran toward him, but Jesus’ disciples stopped them from coming near him. But Jesus said to his disciples, “Let them come to me.” God loves us all. He’s not choosy. – Jesse Jose
Fallacy in the thinking In response to Ray Still’s column: Ray and many others would have us believe that if we
do something with love and sincerity that it is acceptable to God, in particular homosexual marriage. Therefore, we must accept it. There is fallacy in this thinking. First, a couple of statements of understanding. I believe we are all children of God, and as such we are entitled to respect on that basis. Secondly, I do not deny that same-gender attraction exists. If we follow Mr. Still’s logic, then incest, fornication and adultery are acceptable to God because the persons committing the act believe they are doing it with sincerity. (Not in all cases and rarely with incest, but I would guess there are cases where both parties are consenting.) That we all have sexual attractions, whether it be heterosexual or homosexual, we violate God’s laws when we act on those feelings and use the procreative powers given us outside the boundaries God has declared. No number of court decisions overrule God. This leads to two more fallacies. Sometimes we feel enlightened and seek to justify our actions by attributing to God that he has finally seen things correctly because we wish it and that because God loves us, he accepts our actions (not us, as the person, but our actions) even as they violate his commandments. This cannot be. How can God be God if he changes? How can I [ more LETTERS page 8 ]

• Ran off the track at the far turn because he wanted his peanut butter and jelly and cheese sandwich with the crust cut off like his grandma always did; • Got really tired and started whimpering when the gate opened because he stayed up too late watching Book TV (that would be me, in fact they all could be me). Figuring out who wins and who loses in city races is a roll of the
loaded bones. In the years I have covered races, I have only seen one or two candidates with motives that were less than straight and cheery. I believe most local candidates think they can do good, and they want to help their community. The question for a voter is: does a candidates’ vision of good line up with your vision – and more importantly, do you have an idea what is best for your community? Many people, including me, kvetch about the various elected
bodies and officials. Running for office to fix the kvetch is often not the zip-a-dee-doo-dah day most imagine, and once on the inside, elected officials find our government, by design, moves like a crabby iceberg. So, for all our kvetching, it is best to remember, “The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars ….” Local races may seem uninspired compared to the Trumpmobile, but a City Council race affects a community where it lives, drives and plays Yahtzee.

The happy news is the Constitution was crafted by the founders to protect us from the worst – and it has done its job well for a couple of hundred years. Alexis de Tocqueville in his two-volume “Democracy in America” adroitly described the political system he observed in 1840. “Men will not accept truth at the hands of their enemies, and truth is seldom offered to them by their friends. … Each partisan is hurried beyond the limits of his

that the Second Amendment was intended for the people of the United States to stand up to a suppressive government. Would Mr. Sheppard’s answer to gun violence be like putting the fox in charge of the hen house? The fact is are guns are not the problem. The more gun laws we have burdened our law-abiding citizens with have created more violence by restricting the honest person to defend themselves. The entitlement society that is being created in this country is the problem. We have special interest groups, media and our president who push their own agendas in total disregard for our country as a whole. We have citizens being killed by people here illegally, and our government protects the illegal, not the citizen. We have people attacking the police and getting killed when the officer defends him or herself, and the government, media and
president go after the officer before they know the facts. You do not need a weapon to kill someone. Perhaps people like Mr. Sheppard should put their energy toward the real issues, like single-parent homes, drug abuse, lack of jobs, black-on-black crime and stop trying to make excuses for the society he and other like him have created. Maybe we should use all of the existing laws we already have on the books and stop cherry picking the ones that fit our personal agenda. Fire the politicians who don’t abide by the law, like the mayors of cities who harbor illegals. A person here illegally shows their total disregard for our laws and is a criminal. All being said, punish the criminal, not the honest gun owner. If you haven’t heard, criminals don’t adhere to the law. That’s why they are called criminals. – Daniel Van Devender

I was born to my parents, Claude Roy Ralston and Nellie Victoria (Lovin) Ralston on September 15, 1915 in Goldendale, WA. The birth of my sister Alice preceded mine by a couple of years, and my twin sisters Helen and Hazel followed me by a similar interval. I enjoyed almost a full century on this earth, eventually accruing a wonderful and accomplished family that included twin sons, two daughters, three grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren and a great-great grandson. I was married for 60 years to Dale, and that union brought his fine family to me, providing as rich and fulfilling life experience as anyone could hope for. And there were so many cherished friends over those years…I am thankful for far too many aspects of my life to include in my last words here, so I’ll just end the long, long list by praising the care given me in my last years by my family and the angels at Stafford Suites in Kent, WA. I also want to say that I’m grateful that my last wish was granted in that I got to complete this wonderful life while I slept. 1395698

Seattle Mist, Brace seek Legends Cup title
BLUE JAYS PROMOTE KENTWOOD GRAD HAGUE TO THE MAJORS The Toronto Blue Jays promoted former Kentwood High School star Matt Hague on Monday to the major leagues. Toronto, which is contending with the New York Yankees for first place in the American League East Division, called up Hague, 29, from its Triple-A Buffalo Bisons team where the corner infielder tore up opposing pitchers. Hague, a 2004 Kentwood graduate, leads the International League in batting average at .348 (35 points higher than the secondbest average); 83 RBI, 223 total bases and a .427 on-base percentage. He is third in doubles with 30 and fourth in runs scored with 67. Drafted by the Pittsburgh Pirates in the ninth round of the 2008 draft out of Oklahoma State University, Hague has 72 major league at bats from when he played with the Pirates in 2012 and 2014. Toronto plans to use Hague, who is 6 feet 3 inches tall and 225 pounds, as a reserve first baseman and a pinch-hitter. The Blue Jays picked up Hague off of waivers from the Pirates a year ago.

Winning the Legends Cup in front of the home crowd on Sunday would be an ideal way for Danika Brace of the Seattle Mist to wrap up her sixth season in the Legends Football League. The Mist (5-1) take on the Chicago Bliss (6-0) at 3 p.m. Sunday at Kentâ€™s ShoWare Center in the womenâ€™s indoor championship game. Brace, who plays tight end and linebacker, said playing a championship game at home will be a first in the LFL. â€œIt (the championship) has always been down in Las Vegas,â€? Brace said. â€œVegas (the Las Vegas Sin) never played in it, so there has never been a home team in a home arena.â€? Sundayâ€™s game will be the first appearance in the Legends Cup for Brace and the Mist.
Danika Brace, a linebacker and tight end, and the rest of the Seattle Mist will play the Chicago Bliss in the Legends Football League title game on Sunday at the ShoWare Center. COURTESY PHOTO, LFL, Jose Rangel Brace said knowing that the championship game would be played at the ShoWare gave the team extra motivation to win in their Western Conference playoff game against the
Los Angeles Temptation last Saturday. The Mist beat the Temptation 28-24 in Bridgeview, Ill., near Chicago. â€œWe are either going to be in these stands watching or playing,â€? Brace said.
â€œPlaying was obviously the idea and we made it happen.â€? Brace, a Seattle-area native, grew up on Queen Anne Hill and graduated from Inglemoor High
School in Kenmore before receiving a degree from the University of Washington. She lives in Renton. Brace joined the Mist in 2009 when the league formed and played two seasons for Seattle before playing three seasons with Las Vegas. She returned to Seattle this year. She was excited to play again under coach Chris Michaelson. â€œHe truly does believe in us as football players,â€? she said. Brace said it also was nice to come back to the support of the fans. â€œThe football atmosphere in Seattle is like none other,â€? she said. Brace didnâ€™t have much experience playing football before trying out for the LFL, aside from the occasional backyard game with her father, but has always loved the sport.

New junior hockey team coming to town BY HEIDI SANDERS email@example.com
A new hockey team will take the ice in Kent this fall. The Seattle Ravens, an expansion team in the Northern Pacific Hockey League (NPHL), will call the Kent Valley Ice Centre home. The Ravens will be one of seven NPHL teams throughout Washington and Oregon. The junior hockey team is similar to the Seattle Thunderbirds but at a lower level, said Adam Speer, general manager for the
Ravens. The NPHL is a Tier III league in U.S. junior hockey. The Thunderbirds play at the ShoWare Center and in the Western Hockey League, a part of the major junior level of the Canadian Hockey League, or the equivalent of Tier I U.S. junior hockey. Tier III hockey is geared toward younger players hoping to develop their skills to go on to play at the college level or higher tier in the junior hockey system, Speer said. â€œWe intentionally are re-

She said after being tackled for the first time she was shocked but quickly got over it. “My adrenaline just took over,” she said. “That is when I knew I was going to be in the sport for a long time.” Brace, known as one of the hardest hitters in the league, considered not playing this year. “I was thinking it was maybe time to hang up the cleats,” the 27-year-old said.

The two became friends while playing in Australia and agreed to play together for the Mist. Brace credits a lot of the team’s success this season to Matheny’s leadership. “She is just a natural born leader,” Brace said. “She came into this organization, new to the organization, and provided that leadership role.” The Mist also had a handful of all-fantasy team players return this season, the league’s version of an allstar team. “I knew we really had an opportunity to be a contender for the championship this year,” Brace said.

Sunday. “We are not worried about them being undefeated,” she said. “Their conference is a lot easier than the western conference. They played one good team and they barely beat them.” Brace said whether she will come back for another season will depend on the outcome of Sunday’s game. Playing football, on top of having a full-time job, is time consuming, Brace said. “I train two to three hours a day outside of everything else we do,” she said. Winning the Legends Cup would be a great way to leave a long-lasting legacy, Brace said. “I would liked to be remember in this league,” she said. “Having a championship is one of the key elements.

www.kentreporter.com on the association’s teams. Danny Lorenz will coach the Ravens. He is a former goalie for the Thunderbirds who was drafted by the New York Islanders in the 1988 NHL entry draft. Following his 14-year profession hockey career, Lorenz coached Tier III junior hockey in Cincinnati. The Murrayville, British Columbia-native moved to Kent seven years ago to work with the Kent Valley Hockey Association. Lorenz said he is excited to return to coaching Tier III hockey. “To start with something fresh and new with Adam (Speer) who is
a good friend, to help him with his vision, is pretty cool,” Lorenz said. But Lorenz knows that starting an expansion team will have its challenges. Recruiting quality players is just one of the hurdles. “Washington state is not known as a hockey hotbed,” he said. “It is a challenge to recruit to the area, especially out of state but even in state, it is a challenge.” Lorenz hopes to create a competitive and fun team. “I think we want to establish a culture, a positive environment for our players,” he said. “We are looking for like-minded kids who are passionate about developing
hockey careers.” Lorenz said the team also hopes to establish a fan base. “We realize that we are kind of the baby brother to the T-Birds,” Lorenz said. “We are not really competing with them. We want to add another option and alternative for fans and for local kids to play if that is something they are interested in.” For more information, go to seattleravens.com.
Billet families needed Since about one third of the Ravens players will come from out of the area, the team is seeking billet
families to house players. Billet families provide players a home away from home, said rita Schwarting, billet coordinator for the Ravens. Families receive a $350 stipend per month for each player they house, as well as season tickets to the Ravens home games. “The stipend usually doesn’t cover everything but it helps defray the cost of housing the player,” Schwarting said. The ideal billet families are couples without children at home or families with younger children or teenage boys, Schwarting said. Schwarting and her husband

Tend to your potted plants now for a rewarding fall bloom
Fuchsia baskets Keep soil constantly moist and fertilize with a balanced plant food such as Peter’s Professional that has all three numbers on the fertilizer label equal such as a 2020-20 mix. Fuchsia baskets are heavy
leaves from the base of the plants. Geraniums do well with a slow release plant food such as Osmocote, and many gardeners claim that their geraniums produce the most blooms when the plants are slightly stressed – either root bound in a pot that looks too small or allowed to dry out between watering. If your geraniums produce huge leaves but few blooms, it may be due to a plant food that is too high in nitrogen or soil that is too rich in compost. The first number on a fertilizer label denotes nitrogen and this should be smaller than the second and third number for most flowering annuals. A classic plant food for geraniums and other bedding plants would be labeled 5-10-10.
These heat lovers will thrive in sunny locations but they must have well drained soil. When you deadhead geraniums be sure to remove the stems as well as the blossoms and collect any yellow
The biggest complaint about potted petunias is that they imitate Vegas showgirls and become leggy. Once you see blooms on only the tips of the branches, it is time to get snippy and cut back
feeders and create flowers on new growth and so lots of nitrogen helps to encourage more foliage that will deliver more flowers. Fuchsias hate hot weather so if your hanging baskets have suffered in the heat, you can give them a fresh start by cutting back the dangling branches by one-third and watering well. Place your basket in a well shaded location and water twice daily if the temperature goes above 85 degrees. Deadhead fuchsias by removing not just the faded bloom but the swollen berry or seed pod behind the faded flower as well. Marianne Binetti
The third week of August is time to give your potted plants extra attention if you want to enjoy beautiful blooms into the fall season. By the middle of August the roots of geraniums, petunias and verbena have grown enough to fill up containers of potting soil, so your potted plants will need more water and another dose of fertilizer to keep them in blooming good shape. Continue to deadhead or remove the faded blossoms to encourage more blooms. Here are more tips for keeping specific flowers producing until the first fall frost:
your petunia plants by at least one-third. Daring and confident gardeners will cut back petunias this month by one-half. This extreme makeover will leave petunias without any flowers for a few weeks but the new growth will be full of flower buds and you’ll enjoy bushy and beautiful plants until October – but only if you feed and water your petunias immediately after the haircut.
Sad-looking potted annuals There is still time to renew and refresh your disappointing container gardens if you visit a garden center or nursery and look for some late summer or early autumn color. Don’t focus on just plants with flowers. You can fill your pots with leafy cabbage, fleshy succulents or spiky grasses and enjoy the coming fall season without the guilt of looking at miserable plants that you forgot to water. The best weather for outdoor

[ YMCA from page 1 ] of time the Kent Meridian Pool. We formed a small nonprofit that has been running the pool and weâ€™ve been struggling to keep it open ever since knowing that we needed to really partner with someone to achieve the long-term goal of having an aquatics center and youth facility in Kent.â€? Itâ€™s expected to take anywhere from three to five years before the new YMCA would open, said Nathan Phillips, YMCA regional director for South King County, during an interview after the meeting. But the MOU will kick off the
project with commitments from the city and YMCA about what they will do to get the facility built. The YMCA of Greater Seattle operates 12 facilities. City officials still must purchase one more piece of property as they combine Morrill Meadows Park and the smaller East Hill Park just east of Morrill Meadows into one, 23-acre park. The YMCA would be built on about 4 or 5 acres on the eastern side of the property. Meanwhile, the YMCA will begin a fundraising campaign to pay for the project. The main features of the facility will include a gym and a pool. â€œWe will have some corporate
support but the overwhelming support will be from individuals,â€? said Bob Gilbertson, CEO of the YMCA of Greater Seattle, to the council. â€œI wouldnâ€™t expect that companies will give more than about 10 percent of this project and 90 percent will come from individuals.â€? Gilbertson described what he sees as far as the size of the facility. â€œWhat I would expect at this stage of the game - and it might change a little bit as we go into this - that we would build something in the neighborhood that we built at SeaTac with more aquatics,â€? Gilbertson said. â€œThat probably puts you in the range of 50,000 to 55,000 square feet. We hope we can bring
this in at around $25 million.â€? Councilman Jim Berrios said he wanted to make sure the YMCA will offer access to all. â€œPart of the reason we are doing this is because there is a need,â€? Berrios said. â€œWe have at-risk youth in the area that need a place to hang out and be more productive with their lives. â€Ś When we talk about the Y, there is a cost of membership but what are we going to do to address access for the youth?â€? Phillips said the YMCA reaches out to people through a variety of programs. â€œI look, for example, at our YMCA in SeaTac, and we try to make sure we have good access
for the community to all of our facilities,â€? Phillips said. â€œWe do that in a few ways, especially for young people. Almost all of our Yâ€™s have programs for young people that are accessible to the general public.â€? As far as membership prices, the nonprofit agency uses incomes to set those rates. â€œWe anticipate the Kent YMCA would be an income-based pricing YMCA so that we structure our pricing systems to make it available to as broad a spectrum of the public as possible,â€? Phillips said.
