Last Thursday’s four-hour Black Diamond City Council meeting left tempers hot and questions unanswered as the council approved a myriad of new meeting rules and regulations. The new rules include reducing the number of standing council committees from five to three, removing the number restriction that allowed no more than two council members on a council committee, broadening the powers of the mayor pro tempore and electing a council president. The rules, known as Resolution 16-1069, were approved by coun-

changes are to see what we can do about combating the problems that citizens saw in their communication with the city itself.” Pat Pepper Deady and Edelman were vocally against the rule changes, along with City Attorney Carol Morris, who warned council members that adopting the rules could open the city, and individual council members, to being sued. “Those council members chose to go counter to both the insurance pool’s concerns and the attorney’s issues with what they were trying

cil members Erika Morgan, Brian Weber and Pat Pepper. Council members Janie Edelman and Tamie Deady voted no. The rules were written by Pepper and Morgan and were going to be introduced during a special meeting on Jan. 12, but the meeting was cancelled. According to Morgan, Weber and Pepper, the new rules are intended to encourage and increase public participation in how the city is run. “The public is possibly disdainfully listened to. Their input isn’t incorporated into legislation, mainly because people don’t have enough imagination to see how that can be done,” Morgan said during a Friday phone interview. “A lot of those rule

It’s putting the City Council Brian Weber at risk.” Although the new rules were passed, Morgan stated they were “imperfect” and the council should take the time to go over the rules and make revisions during future workshops. Morgan, Weber and Pepper passed Resolution 16-1072 Thursday, which calls for the council to review

Ballots were mailed to voters in the Sumner, White River and Carbonado school districts last week, each asking for millions of dollars and containing promises of improved educational facilities. Also included in each package was a voters’ pamphlet, explaining what each district plans to do with the money, should the bond measures be approved. Ballots are to be returned by Election Day, Feb. 9. In each case, it will take a 60 percent show of support for the bond request to be approved. Here’s rundown of the three local ballot measures.

Sumner School District: what’s proposed

The biggest request is being made by the largest local district, which counts two high schools and three middle schools among its roster of facilities.

And the results are in!

According to the official voters’ pamphlet the bond money would: “build a new elementary school and early learning center, replace Emerald Hills Elementary School, expand and modernize Sumner High School, expand Bonney Lake High School and Mountain View Middle School, and make middle school field and District-wide safety and security improvements.” Bond supporters note that schools in Sumner and Bonney Lake are already exceeding capacity and another 2,000-plus students are anticipated during the next decade.

Sumner School District: financial impacts

The district is asking for $145.6 million to be collected, in the form of property taxes, during a 20-year span. If passed, property taxes would

East Pierce Fire and Rescue propose April levy lift By Ray Still Assistant Editor

Faced with a tight budget and an ever-increasing number of emergency calls, East Pierce Fire and Rescue commissioners voted unanimously on Jan. 19 to place an emergency medical services levy lid lift measure on the April 26 ballot. Washington voters approved the EMS levy in 2011, allowing fire districts to tax 50 cents for every $1,000 in assessed property value. The district wants the EMS levy lid to be lifted because taxpayers are no longer paying the full levy amount due to climbing property rates. According to Washington Administrative Code 458-19-060, the EMS levy is subject to the same 1

percent growth limit as other property taxes, including the annual property tax that cities renew during the budget season. However, property rates have risen faster than 1 percent every year, meaning the levy rate has been reduced accordingly to balance the equation and max out growth at 1 percent. In 2015, the EMS levy rate was reduced to 46.3 cents per $1,000 of assessed value, and was furthered lowered to 44.7 cents this year. Lifting the levy lid will reset the levy to its full amount of 50 cents per $1,000 of assessed value. Home and land owners with a total of $250,000 in assessed property value will pay $1.25 more per month in property taxes, or $15 a year.

For every additional $100,000 in assessed value, taxpayers can expect to pay 50 cents more per month, or $6 more per year. The 6-cents boost in the levy will provide East Pierce Fire and Rescue with close to $620,000, money “we can sorely use,” East Pierce Fire Chief Bud Backer said during the last commissioners meeting. The department plans to use the boost in tax revenue to train a fifth medic unit in the Milton and Edgewood area, offset rising supply and equipment costs and cover election costs, Backer said. The levy lift will only reset the levy for 2017 – starting in 2018, the EMS levy may be reduced again due to the 1 percent growth limit.

Pierce County residents learn about hoarding

Collecting vs. hoarding

between collecting and hoarding, Baker said, are that the items someone with hoarding tendencies keep may appear to be of useless or limited value and living spaces are so cluttered that they can’t be used for their intended purposes.

Mental disorder

Baker said hoarding used to be classified as a form of obsessive-compulsive disorder but recent research shows that isn’t always the case. However, in 92 percent of diagnosed hoarding cases, there is at least one other co-disorder that may cause or worsen the hoard-

ing tendencies. Bipolar disorder, dementia and brain trauma are among some of the other disorders that are often codiagnosed, but Riler said depression, “is the most characteristic co-disorder.” Additionally, many people with hoarding tendencies don’t often realize

Changing council leadership

The majority of the rule changes shifted many powers from Mayor Carol Benson to the rest of the council, or to Mayor Pro Tempore Morgan and the Council President Pepper, who was elected during the meeting. Under the new rules, the mayor no longer has the power to appoint council members to the remaining three council standing committees. Instead, committee members are elected by a majority vote of the council. The mayor also no longer holds the power to appoint council representatives to intergovernmental councils, boards and committees; that power is again reserved by a majority vote. At first glance, it seems like the mayor is no longer able to cast a tie-breaking vote in some city issues, as section 8.4 has been completely removed from the rules. However, section 7.2.4 remains in the code and still outlines the mayor’s right to cast tie breaking votes. The reason section 8.4 was

At these council committee meetings, when you take final action, there’s nothing left to do. It doesn’t come back to the council because you’ve already acted on it… a ‘do-pass’ on a resolution by three council members means that the resolution passed.” Carol Morris Black Diamond City Attorney

Additionally, any three members of the council can now vote to cancel a meeting, given that proper notice was given to the City Clerk, a power that was held only by the mayor (or pro tempore in the mayor’s absence). Parliamentarian powers have also shifted from the city attorney, currently Morris, to the city clerk, Brenda Martinez. The par-

liamentarian’s role in council meetings is to determine if council rules have been breached or if an issue is not adequately addressed by Robert’s Rules of Order. Council and city staff relations have also changed; the stipulation that council members may not “influence” city staff in the administration of personnel, the awarding of contracts, the selection of consultants, the processing of development applications or purchase of city licenses or permits has been removed from council procedures. A stipulation in the same section prohibiting staff from “coercing” city staff remains. A whole section prohibiting council members from changing or interfering with the operating rules and practices of city departments has also been removed, sparking concerns that the council has expanded itself beyond its legislative duties and granted itself limited executive powers.

Insurance concerns

With the passage of these new rules and regulations, it is possible the city of Black Diamond, and individual council members, are open to litigation without insurance coverage, wrote Roger Neal, program manager of the Risk Management

Services Agency of Association of Washington Cities, which provides Black Diamond with insurance.

BLOTTER FROM 2 RESIDENTIAL BURGLARY: Police took a report the afternoon of Jan. 18 regarding a burglary at a Davis Avenue residence. ARREST WARRANT: A Kibler Avenue resident told police Jan. 18 of concern over a large vehicle parked in the area, occupied by two men and a woman. An officer contacted the woman and found she was wanted on a warrant issued by the Kent Police Department. She was transported to Maple Valley and turned over to Kent authorities. The vehicle was later moved, then spotted by police. A man was contacted and cleared. COUPLE ARRESTED: Officers responded the afternoon of Jan. 17 to the vicinity of Cole Street and Stevenson Avenue after hearing of a man and woman fighting. They

increase. The district states the tax bump would be about 45 cents for every $1,000 of assessed property value. That means an additional $90 annually on property assessed at $200,000. For their investment, district patrons are told, the school system anticipates receiving approximately $6.3 million in impact fees due to development, plus an additional $27.7 million from the state.

White River: what’s proposed

The district is seeking nearly $99 million, with collections replacing a current bond that will be paid off at the end of the year. In both cases, the money is generated through property taxes. According to the Pierce County voters’ pamphlet the bond money would: renovate major portions of Glacier Middle School; renovate and increase capacity at Elk Ridge Elementary; replace the multi-purpose room and kitchen at Wilkeson Elementary; repair and upgrade Foothills Elementary and Mountain Meadow Elementary; constructing a new athletic stadium at White River High School; upgrade community playfields; renovate the library wing at White River Educational Service Center; and upgrading safety, security, technology and equipment in all schools.

White River: financial impacts

value would remain steady. If the bond measure were to fail, taxes would decrease with the close of the current year.

Carbonado: what’s proposed

The small district, south of Wilkeson and the last stop before entering the national park, serves students in kindergarten through eighth grade. From there, families can send kids to any district, though most make the trek downhill to White River High. The district operates on a campus in the middle of town with its historic primary building flanked by portables and a library/ technology building. The voters’ pamphlet explains the request for money this way: “The capital improvements being proposed will provide for student safety, increased classroom capacity and an enhanced learning environment, and include: modernization, upgrading and replacement of portions of the Historical School building, installation of a new heating system with backup generator, upgrading of the building to bring it into ADA compliance, upgrading and modernization of the plumbing and electrical systems, upgrading of four classrooms to be accessible for STEM instruction, energy efficient upgrades to include replacement windows and LED light-

ing, pavement of parking lot to meet ADA standards and light for evening events, water and sewer line upgrades, and modernization and upgrading of security and life safety systems.” An intriguing element of the plan involves removal of a concrete ramp that extends across the front of the school and its awning. That would return the school to its original look. Inside, ambitious plans call for dropping the auditorium floor/basketball court by several feet, making it accessible to all.

Carbonado: financial impacts

The bond request asked district property owners to provide $1.75 million, with collections spread over the next 20 years. The collection rate is estimated to be $1.80 per $1,000 of assessed property value; the district uses property assessed at $125,000 as an example, noting the additional tax burden would be $18.75 per month or $225 annually. This new amount is more than offset, however, by a White River School District bond that Carbonado residents have been contributing to for the past 15 years; that indebtedness will expire at the end of the calendar year. The White River bond has a rate of $2.12, meaning tax payments would decrease. They would drop even more if the Carbonado

LEVY LIFT FROM 3 If that happens, Backer said the department plans to ask the public to reset the levy again for 2019 and continue asking the public to reset the lid every other year. The department could ask the public to vote on a multi-year levy lift measure, which would keep the EMS levy at its full rate of 50 cents, Backer said, but this way, the public has more control over the department’s funds and the department can build up trust with its constituents. Backer said that lack of control and trust were two big reasons why the department’s maintenance and operations levy failed in August and November of 2014. As for the fire levy approved by voters in 2008, East Pierce residents will continrequest is denied.

Carbonado: an added element

Unlike its neighboring districts, Carbonado will have a second item on the ballot – a traditional maintenance and operation levy. Unlike bond issues, which pay for facilities, levies are used to provide educational services above and beyond what state funding pays for. The voters pamphlet notes the levy money would be used for “educational programs and services, including teachers, instructional aides, nurses, librarians and other staff, technology support, athlet-

PROWLING: Officers took a report at 4:27 a.m. of two people prowling vehicles at a Chinook Avenue site. The two were contacted and taken into custody. BAR FIGHT: Police took a report the afternoon of Jan. 17 of a fight in progress at a Griffin Avenue location, with combatants both in the bar and outside in a parking lot. Police contacted all involved and determined none wanted to press charges. All agreed to go on their way.

ue to pay the full rate of $1.50 per $1,000 of assessed value. The fire levy hasn’t depreciated because property rates were higher when the levy passed in 2008 than they are now. The levy will only start to depreciate after that benchmark is passed, like with the EMS levy – property rates are higher now than when the EMS levy was passed in 2011. The department expects this levy to depreciate in the next year or two because property rates will have caught up to, and surpassed, 2008 rates, and the 1 percent growth limitation will kick in. Depending on the department’s and the Pierce County Assessor’s calculations for the 2017 property rates, a final recommendation for lifting the lid on the fire levy to keep it at its full rate will be made during the Feb. 16 commissioner meeting.

ics, arts, music and safety programs, textbooks and other classroom materials, and maintaining playgrounds, playfields and other facilities.” The four-year proposal is billed as a replacement, picking up where an M&O levy passed four years ago leaves off. If approved, collections will range from $583,000 next year to $619,000 in 2019. The levy rate would be fairly steady during the 48 months, ranging between $7.21 and $7.24 per $1,000 of assessed property value. If the M&O levy fails, tax rates would drop accordingly.-

Ways to get your ballot counted • Many like to deliver their ballots to one of the “drop boxes” found around Pierce County. The closest are at the Park and Ride lot in Bonney Lake and at the Sumner library. Drop boxes are now in place and will close at 8 p.m. on Election Day. • If putting a ballot in the mail, the Pierce County Elections Department says to do so by Feb. 8. • The Elections Department will operate four “voting centers” on Election Day. The closest is in Puyallup. For all election information, visit:

I admit I don’t remember who the writer was or where I read it, but I am sure I am not making this up, whatever it is. Let’s delve into it.

White River School District. In April of 1969 we realized that goal. Since then we have been staunch supporters of the White River School District. We are parents to four children who have successfully completed their elementary and secondary education at White River, continued on to higher education and have become successful members of their communities. Currently we have five grandchildren who are students in this district. I know that much of my very strong support for our schools was ingrained in me by the active partici-

pation of my parents in the schools when I was a student at White River. They always voted for schools in the 1940s and ’50s, even when doing so presented a significant financial burden for them. They believed in and supported the White River School District long after I had graduated. For them, voting was a responsibility, an honor and a privilege which they took very seriously. They taught me by example to do the same. I believe there are many positives to be gained if we as a community suc-

In Focus

According to Westen, a Democrat, the Vietnam War with its failures was placed squarely on the shoulders of the left. Many conservatives saw the burning of the flag as unpatriotic and downright treasonous. The sponsoring of Civil Rights by Democrats in the 1960s turned many southern Democrats against their party and into the arms of the Republicans where they have resided ever since.

Additionally our students, both current and future, will benefit from renovated schools which includes: security and safety upgrades at all schools in the district, needed structural repairs, replacement of temporary portable classrooms in many areas, including a major renovation of Glacier Middle School, school playground improvements and sports field upgrades, including a stadium at White River High School. This bond is all about providing better learning spaces for the students and teachers at White River. These students are our future and we owe it to our future and theirs to provide

ELFERS FROM 6 The coming of the birth control pill in 1960 also upended traditional American moral values and pushed many religious Americans to the right. When Reagan ran for reelection in 1984, according to Westen, he created and articulated a set of principles that have resonated for more than 30 years. Reagan’s narrative was that his opponents were “tax-and-spend” Democrats. Taxation was equated with “confiscation” and liberal politicians with raising taxes and taking away American freedom through restrictive government regulations. Democrats were, according to Westen’s view of the Reagan narrative, “pessimistic, irresponsible, selfsatisfied liberals who never saw a tax they didn’t want to levy, a social program

Teachers have a unique perspective when it comes to bonds and asking the community to stretch their budget. Teachers – specifically White River School District teachers – want the community to have the

very best for our students, your children. Bonds help students and teachers progress in a safe environment without worry about the roof over our heads or the crowding in the classroom. WRSD teachers are proud of the progress the district has made to improve learning and the housing of students since the last bond was passed in 2001. With that bond, the community built a wonderful high school and facilities that we get to use on a daily basis to educate our children. Collectively, as a staff, we strive to cultivate a culture of caring amongst our students while providing rigorous and authentic learning experiences for all students in this wonderful building. Fifteen years later, we are paying off the bond and we need to come together and continue the development of not only our schools, but our community. Several of our build-

ings are in need of help, especially Glacier Middle School. The last renovation was in the early 1980s and the passing of this bond will get 40 percent of our students out of portables and into 21st century classrooms. Elk Ridge Elementary, built in 1969, is in need of full renovation and through the renovation we will be able to expand and allow for 200 more students. This is essential to the community because of proposed housing developments; Buckley is growing. Families could move to any of the surrounding neighborhoods, yet they are choosing Buckley because of positive growth in our schools. Bonds are not all about the classroom. In 2003 we did not have the funds to finish the White River High School stadium. The South Puget Sound League is starting to notice the strong talent of our students and the community is attend-

they didn’t want (to) fund, or a flag they didn’t want to burn.” Westen goes on to point out that this narrative should be defined by, “What it neglects to mention as by what it mentions.” He then goes on to list four arguments against Reagan’s narrative: • “The failure to explain the intent of the villain (the Democrats)”: The reasons for these social programs and taxes were to help American citizens. • The failure of unregulated capitalism: The Democrats tinkered with the free market because unregulated capitalism had caused the Great Depression and had sustained slavery for more than two hundred years and left 20 percent of the American population in poverty by 1960, according to Westen. • The Republican view that liberals launched an assault on God: From the

liberal perspective, the goal was the defense of the First Amendment right of freedom of religion. • States rights portrayed as freedom from federal regulation: “In reality, it was an encouragement to continued oppression of the African-Americans that had occurred since the end of the Civil War in 1865.” By failing to note the opposite side of each of these coins, conservatives created an effective narrative that Republicans use to this day to push their agenda. The problem with the Democrats is that they have never created a coherent counter narrative to combat the half-truths. The reason for this silence, according to Westen, is a “failure of nerve, a fear of aggression that remains one of the genuine Achilles’ heals of the left.” Democrats, hating conflict, have hidden “behind the compassion, empathy, and tolerance that

are central features of the morality of the left.” So, we have come full circle. Where once the narrative of Franklin Roosevelt and the New Deal was the narrative that saved America from rampant and greedy capitalists, Ronald Reagan’s 1980s narrative became the theme that has resonated among the conservatives. Now that the economic gap between the super-wealthy 0.1 percent has become so glaring, Reagan’s narrative no longer resonates so well with thinking Americans. With the rise of an apparent new Civil Rights movement —“Black Lives Matter”, a Democratic counter argument is emerging. It’s time we Americans knew the full story of the weaknesses of both sides of the political spectrum. This is an election year and we need to fill in the gaps that neither party is either willing or able to tell us.

And, what if the Father loves me – us – and that’s why he sent his son, Jesus, to live a life and model relationship to this “higher power” we refer to as God, and what if it’s possible to emulate that relationship thing somehow and live in some sort of intimacy with the “Father” – here and now, not just there and then? What if? Big question: “How do I know there’s God and that Jesus is who he said he is, and that life – both here and now as well as there and then – will play itself out the way he said it will?” Big response: “I don’t!” Big assumption: I simply take in the information from these long-dead guys (the apostles), review their lives in light of what history says about them, explore

My mind-meandering today is taking me down the path of thinking and feeling and deciding – i.e., I’m reviewing what I think and how I feel about what I’m thinking and what I’m deciding to do about how I feel about what I think. I spend a lot of time meditating on what the Holy Bible has to say and while I build teachings and sermons out of stuff I find in the Holy Book, I first of all make personal application, and then build the teaching out of what I’m applying. It somehow feels disingenuous to preach something I don’t believe and something I won’t live. So I ask myself intimately personal “what if?” questions as I ponder the implications of Jesus being “the Way, the Truth and the Life” before I suggest to my listeners what it might mean to them – and I do this on all the info I find in the Gospel writings, or in the epistles of Paul and the other New

So, what’s going on is, I’m exploring my way through the life of Jesus, through the perspective of the Apostle John, in his Gospel record. John has an interesting and unique take on who this Jesus was and I like it – well, sometimes I like it, and sometimes it’s rather alarming! It’s confrontational! Like, Jesus gets all weird and talks about how he’s the bread that comes down from heaven and if we don’t eat of that bread – unless we eat of his flesh and drink of his blood … his reference to the symbolism of what we call Communion and to the sacrificial death – that our eternal life isn’t possible (John 6).

Bee aware of this insect’s many benefits The Evergreen Arborist Dennis Tompkins Columnist

There is growing excitement from home gardeners and orchardists around the country about a bug. Yes, a bug. More specifically, it is a bee. A mason bee. It is an important natural pollinator particularly in light of the worldwide problem of declining honeybee populations. Why discuss a bee during the dead of winter? First, it is time to plan for the spring activities of this hardworking insect. Second, we enthusiasts wish to help spread the word about this very beneficial insect. I first became aware of it Reach

nearly nine years ago when I noticed all these giant-looking flies that were swarming around the shake roof that covered some outbuildings. I quickly began to learn about them and that started my fascination with the mason bee.

Bee characteristics

It is a solitary bee that nests in holes in the ground, in trees, under shake roofs and in nesting holes created by humans. It rarely stings, but can if its life is threatened; it is not aggressive and is a better pollinator than the honeybee. Six mason bees can effectively pollinate one apple tree that would require 360 honey bees. Adults begin to hatch from their cocoons in mid-March in the Northwest when temperatures reach the mid-50s. The bees complete their life cycle in

about six weeks. Their activities coincide with the bloom of most of our ornamental and fruit-bearing trees. The bees require sources of pollen and mud. They deposit their eggs on a glob of pollen and seal off each one in a chamber with a mud plug. Lack of clayey-mud is one of the top reasons for poor success.

Bee attributes

I believe the greatest attribute is the good feeling we get from helping Mother Nature pollinate our fruit trees with very little time and effort. They are also terrific for involving children in a gardening project and to learn about beneficial insects. The bees are simple for gardeners to “raise” by providing nesting materials. These include specially-designed nesting blocks with multiple holes, cardboard and paper tubes or homemade paper tubes. I began by drilling holes in 4 by 4-inch fir blocks. While these worked to attract the bees, they are not recommended because over time they house various predators, diseases and fungi that feast on the larvae and slowly become death traps for the bees. I have converted to the materials noted above. They allow home gardeners to harvest the cocoons in the fall and clean out the pests. They can then be safely stored in the refrigerator for the winter for release the following spring.

BINETTI FROM 10 of year simply by digging the bulb from the ground and placing it in a teacup half-filled with pebbles, marbles or glass chips. Bring the uprooted bulb indoors but spray it with water often or cover it with glass for a few hours every day to

increase humidity. The cup should be filled with just an inch of water below the bulb, never allowing the bulb itself to sit in dampness. The roots will seek out the water at the bottom of the cup, the bulb will be fooled into flowering indoors due to the warmer temps and you’ll be one up on Mother Nature. The good news about forcing bulbs

you borrow from the garden is that they can be replanted outdoors after they flower and placed with their foliage still attached back into their original planting hole. ••• Marianne Binetti has a degree in horticulture from Washington State

HOARDING FROM 3 one else and shouldn’t be discarded.

Safety in cleanliness

One of the toughest things to realize when working with people with hoarding challenges, Baker said, is they have the right to live the way they want to live. It’s when their way of life becomes not just cluttered, but actively unsafe, is when steps need to be taken to ensure safety, she

continued. “The No. 1 issue that we need to address with anybody with any type of moderate to severe hoarding challenges is safety. Period,” Baker explained. “Unless we live there and unless they are endangering us, themselves or the community, they get to live how they want to live.” Infestations and garbage can be a health hazard if not taken care of quickly, and fire hazards can quickly multiply as clutter crowds around heaters and electrical outlets, Baker said.

Baker also mentioned having 3-foot wide walking paths through rooms, not just to limit the amount of tripping hazards and escape from their place of residence quickly during an emergency (meaning all doors and windows should be easily accessible), but so emergency services can enter and exit a house more easily during an emergency as well. For more information about hoarding, visit the King and Pierce County’s joint task force website, The Hoarding Project.

Area girls win three of four; boys blanked By Kevin Hanson Senior Writer

The area’s girls fared much better than the boys Friday night as prep basketball players wrapped up Week 5 of their league seasons. While three of the local girls teams registered Jan.

22 victories, all four boys teams went down to defeat – three of them by 20 points or more. With 10 league contests under their belts, area squads have two more weeks of league action before heading into the world of postseason play – for those who qualify, at least.

Highlighting the week was the girls team from White River. With a 62-51 victory at River Ridge, the Hornets improved to a perfect 10-0 in South Puget Sound League 2A play and 13-3 overall. Leading the pack is nothing new for coach Chris Gibson and his crew, who make a habit of league titles and state tournament appearances. Kendall Bird continued a stellar junior campaign by scoring 27 points in Lacey. The Bonney Lake girls took a 47-41 road win at Auburn Mountainview to break a deadlock with the Lions and slip into second place in the SPSL 3A. The victory pushed the Panthers’ record to 8-2 in league play, 10-6 overall. Bonney Lake used some balanced scoring to secure the important victory. Brooklyn Gratzer posted 12 points while Shaya McQueen and Samantha Boudreau added 11 apiece. The Panthers trailed by three heading into the fourth quarter, but used an 18-9 advantage during the final eight minutes to pull away. Also rolling to victory Friday were the Sumner High girls, who held just a six-point lead heading into the final period of play but broke loose for a 59-43 win


on their home court. With the win, the Spartan girls are sitting in fourth place in the SPSL 3A with a 6-4 record, 8-8 overall. Friday brought dismal results in local boys play. Enumclaw was the only squad to come close, falling just two points shy against the undefeated and leagueleading Auburn Riverside Ravens. The Hornets outscored the Ravens 20-15 in the final frame but could not clear the final hurdle. With the loss, Enumclaw is a break-even 5-5 in SPSL 3A play and 8-8 overall. Auburn Riverside improved to 10-0 and 16-0 with the win, which came in Enumclaw High’s Chuck Smith Gymnasium. The area’s other boys teams didn’t come close. Bonney Lake was knocked off 66-39 to Auburn Mountainview on the Panthers’ home court, Sumner High dropped a 79-55 contest at Lakes and the White River Hornets were spanked by the highly-ranked River Ridge crew 71-29. With their losses, Bonney Lake fell to 1-9 in league play, 3-13 overall; Sumner slipped to 5-5 in league but remained an impressive 11-5 overall; and White River dropped to third place in league at 7-3, 10-6.

Questions surround new strain of canine flu

Pet parents everywhere were concerned when the new strain of canine flu in Chicago made national news. Pacific Northwesterners took comfort the flu virus was a few thousand miles away from our pets, but it appears the virus has made it to King County. There is a lot of misinformation circulating in the pet community. The following is the most current information from King County Department of Health. What is the current situation regarding canine influenza in King County? Canine influenza has been confirmed in at least two dogs in King County, although further testing is needed to show which type it is. These two dogs are part of an outbreak that occurred in a kennel and daycare facility during December. We believe that this outbreak was caused by H3N2 canine influenza due to positive testing results in two dogs in Georgia that came into close contact with an ill dog from the outbreak. What is canine influenza? Canine influenza virus, or dog flu, is a highlycontagious respiratory infection of dogs that is caused by an influenza A virus. In the United States, canine influenza has been caused by two influenza strains, called H3N8 and H3N2. The H3N2 strain was first detected in the U.S. in 2015, in an outbreak that started in Chicago and spread to 25 states. The strain causing the 2015 outbreak was almost genetically identical to an H3N2 strain previously reported only in Asia. This strain, H3N2 canine influenza virus, is the dog flu of highest concern now. How does canine influenza affect dogs? Signs of illness include cough (moist or dry and honking), runny nose, fever, decreased appetite and activity,




similar to “kennel cough.” Most dogs will get mild illness, but 10 percent to 20 percent of dogs may progress to more severe infection with high fever or pneumonia. Overall mortality rates for canine influenza are low (up to 5 to 10 percent). Canine influenza can affect all ages and all breeds of dogs. Dogs with existing illnesses may suffer more severely. Most dogs recover in two to three weeks. A honking cough can last 10 to 30 days. There is no way to distinguish canine influenza from other causes of respiratory disease based on clinical signs alone, but rapidly increasing numbers of dogs falling sick in congregate settings like kennels and daycares should trigger suspicion. Will all dogs get sick when they are exposed to canine influenza? In an area like King County where H3N2 has not previously been circulating, no dogs will have immunity so it is likely that large numbers of dogs will be infected if the virus is introduced into the population. In a congregate setting, if only a few dogs are sick and the illness does not spread to most of the dogs, is it probably not canine influenza even if the clinical signs are consistent with canine influenza. Some dogs, estimated up to 20 to 25 percent, become infected but do not get sick. Does canine influenza pose a risk to people or other animals? There is no evidence at this time that dogs infected with either H3N8 or H3N2 pose a risk to humans. In Asia, canine influenza virus H3N2 has been reported to infect cats, although transmission to cats in the U.S. has been extremely rare. There is some evidence that guinea pigs and ferrets can become infected.



Set some goals for healthier pet The early part of the year means wellness ranks as a top goal for both men and women. Try incorporating lifestyle changes that benefit both you and your pet. PetSmart veterinarian and pet care expert Dr. Kemba Marshall provides some helpful tips for achieving a healthier lifestyle for you and your animal companions. 1. Exercise is key. Pets, like humans, need physical activity in order to be healthy. The good news is giving your pet adequate daily exercise is easy! For some dog breeds, 30-minute walks are enough. For others, a game of fetch does the trick. Interested in trying something new? Mix up the activity. Try sprinting alongside your pet in quick intervals. Balls are great for fetch, but have you ever tried a Frisbee? Even a quick trip to the mailbox each day is a great option. No matter what, both you and your pet will have fun spending time together and getting a workout. 2. Stimulate the brain. Maintaining a healthy pet lifestyle goes beyond physical exercise. Activities to stimulate a pet’s mental skills are fun and important too. Try a treat-dispensing or puzzle toy with your dog or cat to keep their mind active. Introduce the new toy before a meal, this way your pet will be hungry to learn. 3. Optimize the diet. Have you been feeding your pet the same food for years? It may be time for you and your


How is the canine influenza virus spread? Canine influenza virus is highly contagious. The virus is primarily found in respiratory discharge and can transmitted by direct contact (nose to nose), contaminated surfaces or objects (like hands, bowls, clothing), droplets from coughing and sneezing and aerosol spread. The virus may be able to travel in the air for long distances, up to 20 feet or more. The virus lives in the environment less than one week, usually 12 to 24 hours. Environments where dogs congregate – dog daycares, boarding kennels, dog parks, etc. – are particularly risky. For how long can a dog spread the canine influenza virus? The virus may be shed by a dog for up to three days before clinical signs develop. The peak of virus shedding is three to four days post-infection. After this time, the presence of infectious virus decreases quickly. However, dogs infected with H3N2 may have a prolonged shedding time, up to 20 to 24 days past the onset of clinical signs. Therefore, longer isolation periods (21 days) are recommended for infected dogs. This is true even for dogs that have recovered from clinical signs. Any dog that has been exposed to canine influenza should be considered potentially infectious. Which disinfectants kill the canine influenza virus? Virus will be inactivated by most commonly used disinfectants, including isopropyl alcohol and bleach (at a dilution for routine disinfection). Is there a canine influenza vaccination available? Two vaccines for H3N2 recently became available under conditional licensing. Canine influenza vaccines are considered “lifestyle” vaccines, meaning the decision to vaccinate is based on a dog’s risk of exposure. Dog owners should consult their veterinarian to determine whether vaccination is needed. The H3N2 vaccine requires an initial
