It was one of those moments everyone has. That moment when an idea clicks, the mental light globe goes on, and you hear yourself saying, “Now why didn’t I think of that before?” For Kent’s Jerry Schmidt, it might not have been precisely that way back in 1983. But it sure was close. The then-46-year-old Schmidt was getting up and going for a run in the early-morning darkness.

Scott Simmons has lost a pair of uncles to cancer. His dad was diagnosed with prostate cancer a little more than a year ago, but is doing better each and every day. To say Simmons has had his eyes opened by the disease is an understatement. Simmons will be leading a team in the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life of Covington, Maple Valley and Black Diamond this Friday and Saturday at Tahoma Junior High.
The Kentlake High baseball team spent pretty much the entire spring on an emotional high, winning game after game en route to a state finals berth at Safeco Field. On that same diamond, however, coach Jason Evans was in the midst of an emotional roller coaster ride, stemming from the loss of his father Dale, who passed away April 14 after a short bout with lung cancer.

Instead, spectators filled the parking lot to see who would be crowned “Washington’s Strongest Apple,” a feats of strength competition that includes weight-lifting events such as keg loading and the tire flip.
