Embezzlement threatens future of Kirkland charity

Family of Nicaragua prisoner protests his conviction BY PEYTON WHITELY pwhitely@kirklandreporter.com

The family of a former Seattle-area man imprisoned in Nicaragua reacted with anguish and hope Tuesday at a Kirkland presentation intended to gain support for the prisoner. “He’s my firstborn. He’s my son. All of us will not rest until he’s back with us,” said Dr. Daisy Zachariah, the mother of Jason Puracal, who’s been held in the Central American

country for 10 months. The appeal for help was made at the Kirkland law offices of Anna M. Tolin at Carillon Point through an odd combination of circumstances that led her to become involved in the international controversy. Tolin, who is assisting the Puracal family at no cost, took an interest in the case because she’d met Jason Puracal’s sister, Janis Puracal, at a [ more PROTEST page 3 ]

A Kirkland-based charity that’s been swindled out of more than $112,000, according to federal criminal charges, has lost so much money that its future operations are in jeopardy. “This is an awful thing that’s happened to us,” said Steve Lamson, founder of the RMH (Ronald McDonald House) Holiday Cruise. “He took all our money.” The concerns have emerged from a financial saga that dates to 2009 and resulted in a federal grandjury indictment being issued

Aug. 25 against Randall R. Morrison. The indictment accuses him of two counts of wire fraud relating to his work as treasurer of the RMH Holiday Cruise, which was started in 1982 and operates with a volunteer staff from Juanita. Morrison is charged with stealing at least $112,220, although other parts of an investigation estimate the total loss at more than $142,220. “There might be $4,000, maybe $5,000 left,” said Lamson. Lamson founded the nonprofit cruise in 1982 and expanded it in 1996 by drawing [ more CHARITY page 5 ]

     The family of Jason Puracal, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s imprisoned in Nicaragua, meets with the press at their attorneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office in Kirkland on Tuesday. From the left is Janis Puracal, sister, and Anna Tolin, attorney. PEYTON WHITELY, Kirkland Reporter The background of the despair is that Jason Puracal, 34, grew up in Tacoma and graduated from the University of Washington, then joined the Peace Corps and eventually started a real-estate business in Nicaragua. He was arrested in November and charged with 10 other defendants with taking part in an organized-crime conspiracy of drug trafficking and money laundering, said his sister. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He did not know any of the co-defendants,â&#x20AC;? said Janis Puracal. She added that the family believes the charges were politically motivated to remove opponents to the ruling Nicaraguan government. Jason Puracal is scheduled to be sentenced Sept. 6 and faces up to 30 years in prison.

Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s being held in deplorable conditions in a dirtfloored cell infected with insects, where his health has suffered on a constant diet of beans and rice, with no fruits or vegetables, said his sister. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been making him very sick,â&#x20AC;? she added. The family remains hopeful and determined that he still will be freed, said Janis Puracal, and a number of options are being pursued. They include appealing the conviction to a higher court in Nicaragua, seeking assistance through the U.S. State Department, and getting help from congressional leaders and other political figures. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m appealing to the President of the United States to step in,â&#x20AC;? said Dr. Zachariah. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need action, not statements.â&#x20AC;?

legal conference in Ohio last year. When she learned of the familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ordeal, Tolin said she agreed to help. The familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quest to free Jason Puracal suffered a setback Monday when a Nicaraguan judge convicted him of money laundering and drug trafficking. Family members and Tolin emotionally denied those accusations at the Carillon Point gathering before reporters and television cameras. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a drug case where there are no drugs,â&#x20AC;? said Tolin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would never have held up in a million years in a court in this country.â&#x20AC;? Janis Puracal added that the family never expected the Monday conviction. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were absolutely certain Jason would be coming home today,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The judge took 15 minutes to come back with a verdict. In my mind, the entire Nicaraguan judiciary is flawed.â&#x20AC;? Dr. Zachariah said she is particularly disturbed and feels responsible for whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happened to her son because she encouraged him to join the Peace Corps in 2002, eventually leading him to move to Nicaragua. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My heart is like a piece of rock,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel responsible because I encouraged him to go into the Peace Corps.â&#x20AC;?

Forget car-tab fees and bus cuts I must disagree with my paper’s support of Councilmembers Jane Hague and Kathy Lambert’s about-face to vote in favor of the $20 King County cartab tax hike to bail out our socialist bus system in King County. Instead of another tax hike to rescue our government-run monopoly and centrally planned bus system (Metro), we should just legalize private jitneys. And similarly, limits on cab medallions (business licenses to drive a cab) should also end. The county bus monopoly loses money and can’t support itself. Sales taxpayers and car drivers must make up the difference between what the bus

passenger pays and what the ride really costs. As some said on July 13, many buses are empty and most are too big. That’s government monopoly. If we only had one grocery store to use because of a countywide monopoly, we’d riot. But we take a bus monopoly lying down. We should break up King County’s bus monopoly by legalizing jitneys and other private, non-fixed-route carriers like motorcycle cabs, minivans and gypsy cabs. Gypsy cabs are freelance cab drivers, like you or me, who need some extra money. Gypsy cabs could be fully freelance or in a loose organization. Jitneys are like buses but are more flexible in their Jeff E. Jared

“Do you think the Kirkland City Council should pass a $20 car-tab tax per vehicle to fund road maintenance?”

MY TURN

Question of the week:

chool is back in session on Sept. 6. The ringing of school bells tells us kids are back in class. It also should tell drivers to slow down. School zones – with a 20 m.p.h. speed limit – are there for a reason. They save lives. According to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, a pedestrian struck by a vehicle traveling at 20 m.p.h. is nearly two-thirds less likely to be killed compared to a pedestrian struck by a vehicle traveling at 30 m.p.h. AAA has some other good advice. Research shows that taking your eyes off the road for just two seconds doubles your chances of crashing. Don’t rush into and out of driveways. Expect pedestrians on the sidewalk, especially around schools and in neighborhoods. Stop at stop signs. It seems self-evident, but research shows that more than one-third of drivers roll through stop signs in school zones and neighborhoods. Watch for bikes. Children on bicycles are often unpredictable so expect the unexpected. It may be tempting to drive around a stopped school bus, but not only is it dangerous, it’s against the law. In Washington, school districts can now install and operate automated school bus safety cameras to detect traffic violations involving overtaking or meeting a school bus. If you can’t or won’t meet these minimum safety rules, at least do kids one favor: drive a route that doesn’t take you past a school. One more school note – there are many school kids still without backpacks and school supplies, even in the Lake Washington School District. There are several opportunities for you to help. Bill Henkens, owner of the Game Neighborhood Bar & Grill, is accepting backpacks filled with school supplies through Sept. 6. Your donations will go to families served by the Eastside Domestic Violence Program. Please drop off donations to 13510 100th Ave. N.E. in Kirkland, or call 425- 821-8006 for more information. Also, Coldwell Banker Bain in Kirkland is hosting a school supply drive through Sept. 3 that will benefit Sibling House. The Kirklandbased nonprofit organization lends support to foster families who take in sibling groups when they are in foster care. Drop off donations to 8525 120th Ave. N.E., Suite 100, or call 425-602-4150. Please also check out page 12 for the organization’s school supply wish list.

routes and usually the size of minivans. Let others “cherry pick” bus stops. Let a free market operate and transportation routes would flourish as supply meets demand. Government centrally planned monopolies don’t do this and always lose money requiring subsidy. See Amtrak and the US Postal Service. And the federal Urban Mass Transit Act of 1964 should be repealed. There is no place for the feds in local transportation. Fixed-route monopoly bus systems using downtown cities as their hubs is a 1960’s idea that doesn’t reflect modern population and travel patterns.

Sternoff has best interests of Kirkland at heart A few readers believe Councilman Bob Sternoff should not be re-elected because of “ethical lapses.” Oh, the righteous indignation! It’s unlikely these writers would be so incensed were their own candidate guilty of similar behavior. Anyone who paid attention to the Kirkland City Council at the time of the events will recall that the “debates” were polarized to the point of lacking civility, and quite likely immensely boring for those on the opposing side of the argument. Probably most of the

council would have preferred to be elsewhere doing something else. I myself have found Sternoff to be a rational, clear-thinking, responsible, approachable, helpful and principled city councilman, with the best interests of Kirkland at heart. I look forward to his re-election.

Chuck Pilcher, Kirkland

Sternoff did not violate any laws As chair of the Kirkland Ethics Task Force, I can tell you that Councilman Bob Sternoff supported the establishment of an ethics and conduct code throughout the process. While his personal use of his city email account

was inappropriate, the investigation determined that he didn’t violate any city or state laws. He apologized sincerely, immediately, publicly, in writing and during a council meeting. He did not ask the city to withhold the content of any of his emails, although under the “Tiberino” case he could have asked for the content of many of them to be redacted by the city as being private and not pertaining to the conduct of government. The matter was thoroughly investigated, and the city council, without Sternoff present, voted unanimously that there was no reason to pursue the matter further. The proposed Code of Ethics and Code of Conduct does, in fact, address the circumstances of this

matter. It states unequivocally that use of public resources for personal purposes is an ethics violation. It says that the conduct of officials must be above reproach and avoid even the appearance of impropriety, and that they must refrain from abusive conduct, threats, personal accusations and verbal attacks upon the character or motives of other members of council, boards and commissions, the staff or public. It says that council members must listen courteously and attentively to all public discussions and focus on the business at hand. The Ethics Task Force had this matter in mind when drafting these provisions.

www.kirklandreporter.com support from the Kirkland Police Department and other sponsors, now including the Medina Police Department, the Seattle Police Officers Guild, Argosy Cruises and the Overlake Golf & Country Club. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It just kept growing,â&#x20AC;? said Lamson, and now the cruise takes hundreds of ill children and their families on Christmas Eve voyages on Lake Washington annually. The children are victims of such illnesses as leukemia and are residents of Seattleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ronald McDonald House. The financial devastation began after Morrison was recruited to become the RMH Holiday Cruise treasurer, said Lisa Haistings, president. Morrison was brought in because heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been working with financial matters at Microsoft Corp., said Haistings, and he seemed like a good fit to take over the RMH cruise money matters. He joined the charity in 2005. The cruise has raised funds through contributions and an annual auction at the Overlake country club. Morrison sometimes has been identified as a former Kirkland resident, but Haistings said she never knew exactly where he lived, adding that he used a Kirkland postoffice box as an address when he worked with the Holiday Cruise. Haistings said sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hopeful new individual dona-

tions will allow the cruise to continue, but added that Morrison â&#x20AC;&#x153;took the majority of money we had.â&#x20AC;? The financial problems were discovered in January, 2009, when Haistings got a phone call from a healthcare company in Cleveland, Ohio, explained Don Carroll, a Kirkland detective who works with the United States Secret Service in investigating financial fraud. Morrison had moved from the Kirkland area to Ohio in about August, 2006, to go to work as chief financial officer for the Cleveland company, Carroll added. He continued to handle the Kirkland charityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finances by telephone and email. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Morrison had embezzled company funds through the improper use of his...corporate credit card,â&#x20AC;? wrote Carroll in an affidavit of probable cause filed in United States District Court in Seattle in May. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Among other things, Morrison had directed several sizable, unauthorized payments to RMH Holiday Cruises and similarly named entities,â&#x20AC;? Carroll added, but the money instead went for his personal use. The Ohio call led the Holiday Cruise to start checking its own accounts. Haistings â&#x20AC;&#x153;discovered large discrepancies,â&#x20AC;? Carroll continued. In one transaction cited as an example, Carroll noted how a $3,000 check was writ-

ten against the cruise account at the Bank of America to Chase Bank and marked for the â&#x20AC;&#x153;RMHHC Fidelity.â&#x20AC;? But the cruise charity didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a Chase account, he added. Morrison â&#x20AC;&#x153;improperly obtained no less than $142,220 from RMH Holiday Cruise,â&#x20AC;? Carroll continued, adding that he may have paid back about $30,000. That payment was described in an Express Mail package sent to the charity in April, 2009, in which Morrison enclosed a letter estimating heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d stolen about $95,000 from the Holiday Cruise and had made a $30,000 repayment in 2006. Morrison was suspended by the Ohio company in 2008 and formally fired in 2009, Carroll added. Morrison was dismissed from the Holiday Cruise on Jan. 20, 2009, for suspected theft. He now lives in Tallahassee, Fla. When he was asked about the possible thefts in 2008 and early 2009, Morrison replied that he â&#x20AC;&#x153;had a gambling problem,â&#x20AC;? Carroll continued. Morrison is free on a bond that includes such restrictions as confining his travel to Florida and Washington and requires that he attend a gamblers-treatment program. Morrison was scheduled to appear for arraignment on Thursday. Contact the RMH Holiday Cruise at rmhholidaycruise. org or 425-820-6586.

Davis argued that the charges “are largely circumstantial” and there are no eyewitnesses. “The murder investigation took five years to complete and extended into Oregon, California and ultimately to Thailand,” Davis added. It’s expected to take “an extensive amount of time” to contact and interview potential witnesses, he continued, and the defense also expects to raise “specific issues” about the collection of crime-scene evidence. Davis argued that a second attorney would be needed to “keep the case moving forward and allow the defense to be better prepared for trial and for any post-conviction motions, if necessary.” All the legal activity

concerns a tangled series of relationships that ended with the death and a poisoning in the fall of 2006. At the time, according to charging documents, Smith and Lewis had been dating. Smith, who originally was from Thailand, learned that Lewis was planning on meeting another woman, Thanyarat O. Sengpharaghanh, who was known as “Nina.” Lewis then had returned from a trip to the Philippines and told Smith that he would be marrying a woman he met during the trip. “Smith reportedly did not receive this news well,” a court affidavit

continues. Smith then contacted Nina and told her that Lewis liked to have a drink before going out and arranged to have a bottle of Jagermeister liqueur delivered to Nina’s apartment on Sixth Avenue. On the night of Oct. 6, 2006, Lewis drank a full glass of the liqueur and Nina drank about a half of a glass, the charges add. On Oct. 7, emergency crews were called after Nina was found by a friend disoriented and blind at the apartment and Lewis was found lying face down between a couch and coffee table. He

She recovered, and Smith also is charged with first-degree assault for that poisoning. Laboratory tests found a toxic insecticide known as Methomyl inside the liqueur bottle and the two glasses used by Lewis and Nina. Kirkland detectives then interviewed Smith, who told them she and Lewis had been living together for 18 months.

boyfriend,” she recalled. The man kidnapped Kim, chained her up in the basement of an abandoned house in Oklahoma and destroyed all of her documents. He threatened her and said if she left she would lose her rights and be treated like an illegal alien. After escaping, a woman from an escort service offered to help. She told Kim she would get paid to go on dates with men. Once she accepted the job, she was raped and sold to who she refers to as her “master” in Las Vegas. “My traffickers were organized criminals,” she explained. “I lived in a distribution warehouse – it wasn’t like a brothel or a massage parlor.” In the warehouse, woman and young girls slept on old mats. “It was kind of like a human market,” Kim said, noting women were forced to service up to 35 men per day. “The girls were tapped on the shoulder to be marketed out. Sometimes the girls came back – sometimes they didn’t.” During her two-plus years of sexual exploitation, she was transported with about 50 other girls from warehouse to warehouse throughout the country. Time did not exist. “When you are being held, there is no clock, no light,”

she said. “There were times when it would feel like it was forever.” She eventually became a madam and escaped in 1997. “I had to rank up in order to get out,” she said, noting her frustration with people asking her why she didn’t escape sooner. “It’s not like I wanted to be a madam - I did it with the intent to get out.” It took several years for Kim to realize what happened to her. She was interning as a legal advocate for a law firm in 2003 when she heard a Russian woman talk about her human trafficking experience. “I didn’t think of it as human trafficking. In the 90s, we didn’t hear of trafficking,” said Kim. When she heard the woman’s story “I said, ‘oh my gosh – she’s telling my story.’” Kim started to speak out about her experience. That is when Seattle native Rick Philips saw a newspaper article and contacted her in 2005. With Kim’s help via email, Philips wrote and completed the script four years later. Colin Plank, who is coproducing the movie with Jacob Mosler – both Seattle natives – said most of the film crew are local. Director Megan Griffith is also from Seattle. He noted the film is funded in part by a non-profit organization, Washington Filmworks, which supports the state’s film industry. Eden

Mobile dressing rooms and other trailers lined Seventh Street in Kirkland Aug. 25 for the film shooting. CARRIE WOOD, Kirkland Reporter Productions is shooting the film in-state for 25 days. Earlier in the week, the company filmed outside footage in Ellensburg and on Friday they moved to Lynwood to shoot a scene at a warehouse. Plank said Kirkland was a good location for the film because it is quiet and also has ample street parking. Location manager Dave Drummond arranged to have an interior scene filmed inside Will Diefenbach’s Kirkland home. A former Microsoft Corp. employee, Diefenbach’s home was also the site of a Microsoft video earlier this year. “The part of the film we are shooting today is set in the mid-90s, so his home fits in that genre easily,” he said on Thursday. Diefenbach said the crew shot footage in his garage, media room, downstairs guest bathroom, great room

and master bedroom. “There were people and gear everywhere,” Diefenbach later told the Reporter. “I worked from home that day to watch what I could without getting in the way. I was able to see a few of the shots. It was really fun - the amount of effort involved in just this aspect of film making is incredible and the cast and crew all seemed ultimately professional.” Kim said she was amazed that the film is coming to fruition and was overwhelmed with the crew’s support. Now 36, she lives in Texas with her husband and son. She has visited universities around the country to speak about her personal story. She has also worked with law enforcement and political officials with the goal of strengthening the advocacy system that reaches out to victims of trafficking. Officials estimate between 14,500-17,500 people — mostly women and children — are trafficked in the U.S. each year. Washington was the first state to criminalize human trafficking in 2003. King County prosecuted the state’s first human trafficking case in 2009 involving a West Seattle street gang, according to news reports. But Kim still sees cases where human trafficking victims are tried as prostitutes. “Many people don’t know how to save these girls if they don’t know what to look for,” she said. Aside from public speaking, Kim is also a children’s advocate for Hoby. There are times, she says, when she has to “get away from the whole trafficking topic.” But when she’s confronted with a tough situation, she still calls on her past. “I hear kids all the time say, ‘I’ll never amount to anything,’ and I tell them, ‘If I’ve been through this, then you can get through this too.’”

[ REAL ESTATE from page 9] will need to get a mortgage to buy a house, you must make sure your credit history is as clean as possible. A few months before you start house hunting, get copies of your credit report. Make sure the facts are correct, and fix any problems you discover. 3. Aim for a home you can really afford. The rule of thumb is that you can buy housing that runs about two-andone-half times your annual salary. But youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll do better to sit down with a professional mortgage lender to get a better handle on how your income, debts, and expenses affect what you can afford. 4. If you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put down the usual 20%, you may still qualify for a loan. There are a variety of public and private lenders who, if you qualify, offer

low-interest mortgages that require a down payment as small as 3.5 percent of the purchase price. 5. Buy in a district with good schools. In most areas, this advice applies even if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have school-age children. Reason: When it comes time to sell, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll learn that strong school districts are a top priority for many home buyers, thus helping to boost property values. 6. Get professional help. Even though the Internet gives buyers unprecedented access to home listings, most new buyers (and many more experienced ones) are better off using a professional agent. Look for an exclusive buyer agent, if possible, who will have your interests at heart and can help you with strategies during the bidding process. 7. Before house hunting, get pre-approved.

Getting pre-approved will save your the grief of looking at houses you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford and put you in a better position to make a serious offer when you do find the right house. Not to be confused with pre-qualification, which is based on a cursory review of your finances, pre-approval from a lender is based on your actual income, debt and credit history. Just imagine: home ownership means you no longer pay monthly rent for the roof over your head. You can do what you want with your house (within reason) and you get to deduct the interest, property taxes and mortgage insurance against your taxable income in order to minimize taxes owed to Uncle Sam. The best part of buying when affordability is at its all time best? When you leave, you can sell it to recoup the purchase price and - with any luck - earn a profit too.

BY MEGAN MANAGAN

mmanagan@kirklandreporter.com

Teams can easily be defined by the numbers they post on a daily or weekly basis. Wins over losses, shutouts and swept matches. But every good team knows there is something extra that propels the top teams into the higher spots. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about the intangibles â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the things teams canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite put their fingers on, but that are there, every moment of every practice or game. In the Lake Washington High School gym, the Kangs volleyball team is working on their numbers, but understands those unknowns are going to be key. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think our strength is going to be in the intangible. In the ability that despite how young we are ... itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be in the passion and desire to win,â&#x20AC;? said head coach Claire Lazar. Besides the unknowns, Lazar does know that defense

is key in KingCo. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of our biggest things. Defense wins the game,â&#x20AC;? said the coach. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To win a game you really only need to play offense once and play defense 24 times. My philosophy is big on defense, however, this is the first year weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be running some new offensive plays. That will be exciting, to see our hitters, and be able to see them get some plays, and our setters.â&#x20AC;? Lazar said the program as a whole has grown, but she has a smaller varsity roster this fall, so her focus has been from the beginning on community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Really one of my goals is to get that sportsmanship award again this year,â&#x20AC;? said Lazar. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to be more about this team and to make it a place where people want to come, not that we hate going to that school because their crowd is terrible. We want it to be about community and building our own.â&#x20AC;?

Kangs senior volleyball players include: Katy Harding, Eleanor Lyon, Jessica Lund, MacKenzie Morgan, Shyanne Singstad, Maddy Warnick (not pictured) and Taylor Lipking (not pictured). MEGAN MANAGAN, Kirkland Reporter The team has some goals of their own, on the more tangible side of things. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Honestly, their goal is to place at state this year,â&#x20AC;? said the coach. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For me, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one game at a time, one day at a time.â&#x20AC;? The Kangs will get an early taste of how everything comes together during a

non-conference match against a team from Juneau Alaska. Then they will play in a tournament at Juanita High School on Sept. 17. Lake Washington will play its first home game of the regular season against Mount Si on Sept. 14 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the game circled on the Kangsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; calendars.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to unsettle the top seeded team this year,â&#x20AC;? said Lazar. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The top teams in our league are usually Mount Si and Mercer Island and really one game at a time, but Mount Si is the game weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d really like to win.â&#x20AC;? The team will play at Interlake on Sept. 12 in the first conference game of the season.

Rebels revamp for volleyball season BY MEGAN MANAGAN mmanagan@kirklandreporter.com

After losing nine seniors last fall, the Juanita volleyball team has some new faces and definitely looks a little different, but that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean the goals arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the same. The Rebels, just points from making its first ever team state appearance last fall, aim to finish the project this season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to go to state. We have never been,â&#x20AC;? said returning head coach Teena Bambolo. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year was sickening, we were points away from state. We just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want

to be team No. 6. Five teams go from our district and we should be in that top five, if we can stay healthy.â&#x20AC;? Returning to help the Rebels obtain that goal is senior outside hitter Dana Michels, and junior setter Jade Finau, both keys to the team last year, and the Rebels captains. Despite the team losing a lot of players last year, Bambolo said she has talent this year, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just fitting new pieces into the puzzle and finding where things gel together. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We definitely have talent, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just getting it to all work together,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been doing a lot recently

in the pre-season on team building, stuff away from volleyball just to get them to know each other.â&#x20AC;? Michels said one of the captainsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; goals is for the team to trust each other and work together, which will bring the team together and then the wins can follow. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are working on consistency and being there,â&#x20AC;? said Finau. For their coach, working on fundamentals has been a key in the early season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Honestly, I think fundamentals are the most important,â&#x20AC;? said Bambolo. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter who is in your league or who they have, it

Juanita volleyball captains, Jade Finau, a junior setter, and senior outside hitter Dana Michels. MEGAN MANAGAN, Kirkland Reporter matters who is the strongest and soundest fundamentally. It matters who is going to win the serve receive battle.â&#x20AC;? To get plenty of serve receive practice before the sea-

son begins in earnest, Juanita is hosting a tournament on Sept. 17 at the high school.

is “un econo mical ”

Frontier agrees. FiOS TV is the wrong choice. Switch to XFINITY® and get the best entertainment for the best price. Recently, Frontier Communications announced that FiOS TV was “uneconomical.” They have taken a series of steps to discourage new customers from signing up for FiOS TV, and encourage existing customers who have FiOS to switch to other services like satellite TV. Fortunately, there’s a far better option. With XFINITY® from Comcast you get access to over 60,000 On Demand TV shows and movies, on TV and online. You can’t get that with satellite. You’ll also get access to the fastest Internet to more homes than anyone, plus smarter home phone service for less. Get home entertainment that’s here to stay with XFINITY.
