SLIDESHOW Volunteers add flower power to downtown Enumclaw

  • Jun 18, 2009 at 4:19PM

An effort to help beautify downtown Enumclaw was carried out June 14 when dozens of volunteers flocked to Cole Street intersections and plants approximately 500 geraniums. The venture was prompted by a 10-step program to breathe life into downtown adopted by the Community Economic Development Committee of the Enumclaw City Council. The Enumclaw Chamber of Commerce took the lead and, working with the city's Parks and Recreation Department and Granmma's Garden, recruited people and businesses to "adopt" 16 beds and a dozen sidewalk planters. Among those helping with the planting – and pictured in the accompanying slide show – were Dr. Scott Decker, Chuck and Celia Bender, the crew from The Rainier, members of the local post of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, Mary Ellen Rutter, Liz Reynolds, Tim Pierick, Rob and Kim Peterson, A.J. Hamilton and Cheryl Vanderwalker.

Road trip provides just a bit of Paradise

  • Jun 16, 2009 at 1:17AM

Well, friends, what our new president has inherited from the neo-conservative school is nothing less than the worst economy in at least 25 years and quite possibly the worst since the 1930s. I suspect Barack Obama has reviewed certain programs that proved effective during the Great Depression under the presidency of Franklin Roosevelt.

Since the first can charged onto the market in 1997, energy drinks have become a multi-billion dollar industry in the United States. But when you reach for an energy drink to give you a boost before a big game, workout, critical test or work project, what is the real cost of that rush?

There’s still time to get some vegetables in the ground

  • Jun 16, 2009 at 1:16AM

By the third week of June your beans should be up, your peas in flower and your corn plants emerging from the soil. Haven’t yet planted a vegetable garden? There is still time to put seeds of beans, carrots, cabbage and squash into the soil. Take a shortcut and buy plants already started in four inch pots or gallon-sized containers from the nursery and you’ll still have all summer to watch them grow. Almost any vegetable can be grown in a pot, but squash, cucumbers, tomatoes and herbs are the easiest if your “farmland” is nothing more than a deck or patio.

Receiving the promise of the father

  • Jun 16, 2009 at 1:14AM

What if you were a Christian for years but never experienced the life-changing transformation you read about in your Bible? What if you never really knew God’s joy or peace or his love? What if your Christian walk was dry and boring, lifeless, powerless and impossibly difficult? What if God felt so far away that you wondered if He could hear you and you definitely couldn’t hear him? That would really stink! I don’t know how people do it. Better yet, I don’t know why people do it. Jesus came that we might have life and that we might have it more abundantly. Unfortunately this is not the Christian experience for many believers who have not yet become receivers.
