The Washington State Department of Health announced another monitoring program, this one aimed at tracking the sales of prescription pain medication and other potentially addictive medicines. The Washington State Prescription Monitoring Program launched this month in an effort to “reduce abuse and promote safety,” according to the department. The number of people dying from prescription medication overdoses is growing in Washington. From 2000 to 2010, the overdose death rate involving prescription pain medication more than doubled, and since 2006, deaths in (Washington) from unintentional drug overdoses “have surpassed

deaths from automobile crashes,” according to the department. State Secretary of Health Mary Selecky said this tool will help medical professionals have a clearer picture of a patient’s prescription medicine history, and will help promote safety. “Having a patient’s prescription history gives prescribers a more complete view of patient care when they prescribe or dispense controlled substances,” Selecky said in an Oct. 13 news release. “This new service is another tool for patient care and safety.” According to the department, “information from pharmacies and health care providers who dispense medicine from their offices (will be) gathered and stored in a secured, central database.” Starting in January 2012, health [ more DRUGS, page 6 ]

The Federal Way School Board recently adopted Policy 2409, which allows students to challenge them-

a policy not shared by any other districts in the state or nation. Garcia did note that there could be a similar policy out there, but the school district has not been able to find one yet. According to the policy as written on the district website (www.fwps.org), [ more POLICY, page 6 ]

The schools where MYP is being offered, such as Kilo, Totem and TJ, are “candidate” schools that still need approval from the International Baccalaureate organization to be full MYP schools. In essence, the students are taking the more difficult classes, but because those schools are still being considered as candidates, there is no official designation on transcripts that the students took advanced classes. “One of the concerns (is) they wouldn’t be listed as pre-IB, and since were a MYP candidate school, they can’t be listed as MYP, so how do you resolve that designation of honors?,” Garcia asked. “That is an action item you can charge us to do if you choose to do so.” The board members present — Angela Griffin, Suzanne Smith and board vice president Amye Bronson-Doherty — agreed. They asked Garcia and staff to find a way for students to have those classes be weighted appropriately during the transitional period of the schools currently being considered for MYP.

moting the gang culture in movies and entertainment. So where does that leave us right now? The fact is, law enforcement agencies in King County have been doing aggressive and coordinated enforcement related to gangs for some time. The recent events have brought more attention to the issue, and the Sheriff ’s Office is a partner with our municipal police departments to track, identify, arrest and prosecute the worst of the worst offenders. Our challenge is to not allow this enforcement effort, and the recent addition of more resources to the fight against gangs, to become the “flavor of the month” and to forget about it once something else has our collective attention. The heavy lifting of working with kids, preventing gang involvement and violence, and getting members out of the gang life will continue, and we need to remember that it is important, even when the attention fades. Your sheriff ’s office and our area police departments are working together, but we are only part of the solution. Let’s not overreact, or underestimate the problem. A thoughtful and long-term

Her grandchildren loved hearing of her growing up on a homestead near Pumpkin Creek, MT, riding horseback to a one-room school house with her sister Lorna and learning to drive when she and her sister "borrowed" their father's model-T Ford. She graduated from business college in Butte and, during World War II, made the bold decision as a single woman to leave her family in Montana to transfer with the Shell Oil Company to Seattle. Equal parts grace and guts, she was an independent woman ahead of her time and made the long drive from Montana to Seattle for new career opportunities, experiences and friends in the big city. She met her husband, Bob Schick while living at the Alhambra, a boarding house on Capitol Hill. Together they rode tandem around Green Lake, fished on Lake Union but, especially, they bonded over music - she had the record player and he loved the classics. Married in 1943, Corma and Bob lived in Washington, New Mexico and Colorado with their four children before settling in Seattle in the 1950's. They loved the Pacific Northwest and took their family camping, boating on Puget Sound and to visit her family in Spokane. Corma took pride in her work at the Boeing Company eventually retiring in 1977. A mover with endless energy, she did not slow down in retirement but spent her time sharing stories and adventures with her children and grandchildren and volunteering in her daughters' classrooms helping students with their lessons. Corma and Bob walked many miles through the Cascades with the Federal Way Senior Center Walkers, sailed Puget Sound on Bob's boat and traveled to Thailand. Corma was a member of the Twin Lakes Women's Club and looked forward to taking part in Club events; into her nineties she was a volunteer for the Club's annual Holiday charity gift giving. Corma is survived by family who will keep her warm smile, quick laugh, and unending love alive in their hearts; her sister and brother-in-law, Lorna and Bud Elberson (Pullman, WA), three daughters and sons-in-law, Barbara and Alan Bruffey (Seattle), Gwen and Dan Smith (Puyallup), Natalie and Bill Poss (Bremerton), and a son and daughter-in-law, John and Sandy Schick (Wimberley, TX). She is also survived by her eight grandchildren; Beckie and Teresa Bruffey, David and Jason Schick, Bryan and Jeremy Smith, Lindsay Reese and Kyle Poss and four great grandchildren, Wyatt, Fiona, Brenden and Nathan. She departs this world to join her mother and father Anna and Charles, husband Bob and grandson Zachary - we know they are having a huge, happy party to welcome her home.


[6] October 19, 2011 [ DRUGS from page 1] care providers can view the history of patients’ prescriptions dating back to when the data collection began. The hope is that with this data, “prescribers and pharmacists will be able to intervene with their patients earlier,� according to the department. The DOH touts that this new data collection system will help “identify dangerous drug interactions, address issues of misuse, and recognize undermanaged pain or the need for substance abuse treatment.� Outside of health care providers, pharmacists and patients, this new data collection system will be accessible by law enforcement as well. More information on the program and the law is available at www.doh.wa.gov/hsqa/PMP/ public.htm.

National Prescription Drug Take Back Day The Federal Way Police Department will participate in the National Prescription Drug Take Back Day on Oct. 29 at police headquarters at City Hall. The event will run 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and is intended for people to safely dispose of unused and unwanted prescription medications. According to the Drug

Enforcement Agency’s “Office of Diversion Control� website, these “Take Back� days address a vital public safety and public health issue. More than 7 million Americans abuse prescription drugs, according to a 2009 survey conducted by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. More than 2,500 teens use prescription drugs to get high for the first time, according to the Partnership for a Drug Free America. According to the DEA, a majority of abused prescription drugs “are obtained from family and friends, including the home medicine cabinet.� Two take back days took place in September 2010 and April 2011. The DEA indicates that nearly 4,000 state and local law enforcement agencies participated in the two previous take back days, and these efforts collected more than 309 tons of unused/ unwanted pills. The event will happen every six months, the website indicates, until the DEA is able to “develop a process for people to safely dispose of their prescription drugs.� President Barack Obama signed the Safe and Secure Drug Disposal Act in October 2010, giving the DEA the means to develop that process.

This segment of Pacific Highway South between South 312th Street and Dash Point Road averages about 38,000 vehicles per day, according to the city. Similar to the first three phases of construction, improvements will include new pavement overlay and widening of the road from five lanes to seven lanes. There will be two general purpose lanes and one HOV lane in each direction, along with provisions for left turns and Uturns at intersections, according to the city.

[ POLICY from page 1] 2409 is in place if “the student and parent/guardian wish to challenge a recommended course in a content sequence or other recommended course of study.� It notes that “course challenge options are available for credit bearing courses only.� This means that the policy applies only to high school credit courses. A middle school student who’s taking algebra, for example, could choose to challenge up to a high school level math class. “If there’s the kid that says

Garcia said he hopes Policy 2409 allows for students and families to feel like they have more control over the direction of their academic careers in Federal Way schools. “We’re committed to try and find ways that each student is challenged at the highest level. (This) puts the decision back on the families, so they can advocate, and we can support them,� he said.

South King Fire commissioners For South King Fire and Rescue commissioner, The Mirror endorses Mark Thompson for position 4 and James Fossos for position 5. In regards to experience, knowledge of the fire department, and the ability to understand the issues facing the men and women in the trenches, Fossos and Thompson are hands down the better candidates. However, it is worth questioning whether the South King Fire commissioners bring enough objectivity to balance their advocacy for firefighters and the community they serve. Commissioners have a duty to provide the public with the best emergency response services possible. However, with 97 percent of South King Fire’s calls being non-fire emergencies, the public deserves more scrutiny of fire district expenditures in these tight economic times. Fossos’ challenger, Jerry Galland, is among the few community activists willing to challenge this sacred cow. Admittedly, Galland walks the line between instigator and problem solver. At the very least, Galland raises the issue of whether the board needs candidates who bring more objectivity, especially with taxpayer dollars at stake. That is truly in the public’s best interest. If Galland wants to bring more checks and balances, he will be more effective as a private citizen outside the board — rather than joining a clique that treats him like a goldfish in a shark tank. Fossos and Thompson deserve applause for their lifelong dedication to fighting fires and saving lives. Their passion is unmatched, and they are solid choices in this election.

Lakehaven commissioner In the race for Lakehaven Utility District commissioner position 4, The Mirror recommends Tim McClain. [ more ENDORSEMENTS page 9 ]

The race between Liz Drake and Danny Peterson for the Federal Way School Board presented two very capable candidates. Either would be a good school board member. But Drake’s surprising announcement that she had been appointed principal at Thomas Jefferson High School takes her out of the race and makes Peterson the only active candidate. Drake is a lifelong educator who has served in many different capacities. She brings a deep understanding of the challenges and options available to improve our school system. There had been some concern expressed by school district watchers that, given her experience in the district, Drake may be tempted to micromanage the administration. She said no, she understands the difference between policy that the board sets — and staff that carry it out. She also noted her respect for Superintendent Rob Neu. In her new position, she will be working for Neu. Drake had been endorsed by Sen. Tracey Eide, City Councilwoman Linda Kochmar and the Federal Way Education Association. In addition to taking Drake out of the school board race, the decision also likely eliminates her as a possible candidate to succeed departing Democratic State Rep. Mark Miloscia, who is running for State Auditor. Some Democrats had expressed interest in trying to recruit her to run for the legislative position. But now instead of possibly opposing school board president Tony Moore, a likely candidate for the Legislature, she will return to school district administration.

Looks like everyone comes out in new favorable positions. Danny Peterson has worked as a school teacher in the Federal Way district and is a youth pastor. He and his wife have two children that will start school soon. He has traveled to many countries and leaned about different cultures. He will relate to parents and students in a different manner than Drake would have. He has been endorsed by former superintendent of schools Tom Murphy and Mayor Skip Priest. Drake will still be on the ballot, as it is too late to remove her name. That means Peterson still has to win the election. If he doesn’t, and Drake wins, she would have to resign from the board. The position would then be vacant and subject to appointment by the school board. In that circumstance, the board might appoint Peterson, or it might appoint someone else from that district. If Peterson were to lose, it could become awkward to appoint a candidate who lost to an inactive opponent. By winning, he avoids any question, and the public wins by having both Peterson and Drake serving the district. In one of the South King Fire and Rescue positions, incumbent Mark Thompson is opposed by Timolin Abrom. Since Abrom doesn’t appear to be campaigning and did not attend the Oct. 12 candidates forum, it is difficult to draw distinctions. More next week. Bob Roegner

EDITORIAL

The Mirror’s editorial board members: Rudi Alcott, publisher; Andy Hobbs, editor; Joann Piquette, retired and community advocate; Matthew Jarvis, business owner; Nandell Palmer, author; Bob Dockstader, retired attorney; Mel West, business owner. Contact the board: editorialboard@ federalwaymirror.com

For Federal Way School Board position 2, The Mirror recommends Claire Wilson. Wilson and her opponent, Gail Crabtree, are longtime volunteers in their Star Lake area of the school district. Both are passionate about improving education — and communication — across Federal Way schools, with a particular preference for early learning. They are also dedicated volunteers within the school district. Wilson gets the nod because she brings more professional experience as an educator and education administrator. Specifically, Wilson’s leadership in the Puget Sound Educational Service District has exposed her to problems and solutions across a range of school districts. She articulates a keen understanding of the school district’s nuts and bolts. Packaged together, these assets will help Wilson be an effective and influential board member from the start. For position 3, The Mirror recommends Danny Peterson. He is a brilliant candidate who will bring leadership to the board. Peterson is engaged in school district issues, and has logged education experience in both Federal Way and abroad. The latter experience is an asset to this diverse school district. His opponent, Liz Drake, withdrew from the race last week to take the Thomas Jefferson High School principal job. He is now the sole active candidate on the ballot for position 3. Endorsed by former superintendent Tom Murphy, Peterson is a solid choice.

2 guys save a dog I would like to thank two good Samaritans that rescued my Jack Russell terrier, Poco, from getting hit by a car at the intersection of Pacific Highway and Dash Point Road. On Monday, Oct. 10, I was on my way to take my dog to Sacajawea Vet Clinic. When I approached the clinic door, my dog was having nothing to do with it, and she wiggled herself

out of her harness and took off on me. I just knew she was going to get killed. These two men in a white pickup truck stopped and literally chased my dog all over the place, stopping traffic from all directions. My dog was so scared that she wouldn’t come to anyone or even to me, and one of the men actually tackled my Jack Russell, and we were able to get her under a net until she calmed down. My Jack

Russell is doing fine, thanks to all that helped. The people of Federal Way are amazing.

McClain was appointed to the board last fall, when he rose to the top of 15 applicants for a board vacancy. He has an earnest thirst for learning about how the water district works. After a year on the board, McClain is engaged with the role and its related challenges. This dedication, coupled with previous financial management experience in his career, are assets to

Lakehaven ratepayers. McClain has earned a chance to serve a full term and fulfill his potential as a board commissioner. His opponent, Louise Wessel, has good intentions in this race. However, she has not presented a compelling case for replacing McClain.

It was Graves who proved to be the hero in the second half. Graves tied the match at 2-2 with a goal seven minutes into the second half and tallied the game-winner in the 78th minute on a pass from Taylor Meadows. Graves’ two goals gives her eight on the season to lead the Gators. Decatur’s victory over Bonney Lake came just two days after the the Gators handed Auburn Mountainview its first SPSL 3A loss of the season on Oct. 11, 1-0. Graves also tallied the game-winner in that match in overtime. Since starting the season 1-4-0, Decatur has won five of its last six matches. The only loss came 2-1 to Enumclaw on Sept. 29.

Oh, how things have changed in just one year inside the Federal Way High School football program. The eighth-ranked Eagles remained unbeaten and secured at least a share of the South Puget Sound League South Division championship with a 49-17 win over the Rogers Rams Thursday night at Sparks Stadium in Puyallup. Exactly one season ago, a very talented Eagles squad was beaten up 42-28 by the same Rogers team, falling to 2-4 in the SPSL South. Federal Way eventually finished the season with a disappointing 4-6 record, snapping the program’s five-year postseason streak. This season, longtime head coach John Meagher returned basically the same team with a different attitude, which developed after the perennial winning program had a subpar year in 2010. This year’s edition of the Eagles (6-0) can secure the SPSL South title outright with a victory over winless Spanaway Lake Saturday at Federal Way Memorial Stadium. The South Division championship will give the Eagles the SPSL’s top seed into the postseason and a firstround matchup with the fifth[ more FOOTBALL page 14 ]

He was also made the UCF Honor Roll (3.0 GPA or higher) during the spring quarter. “Zeke (Umipig) can really shoot it – he could be a real surprise,” said head coach Bob Burton. “We feel he can be one of the most talented guards in the conference.” The 6-footer averaged 14.1 points a game for Federal Way his senior year. Umipig also led the South Puget Sound League in assists at 7.4 a game and shot an amazing 93.8 from the free-throw line during the regular season.

The Eastern Washington University men’s basketball team is entering a new era under first-year head coach Jim Hayford. And Hayford will be counting on Federal Way High School graduate Jeffrey Forbes to ease the transition. The 2009 Federal Way grad is entering his junior season at Eastern. Last season, the point guard started 23 games and averaged 9.8 points and 2.6 rebounds a game for the Eagles. As a true freshman, Forbes averaged 10.5 points a Jeffrey Forbes game. “The most experienced part of our team is the backcourt,” said Hayford. “We have three guards who have been through Big Sky play and have performed in conference games at a high level. That is the most solid part of the foundation that we are building on.” Hayford inherits a team that finished 1020 last year and 7-9 in the Big Sky Conference. Eastern finished 10-20 on the season and 7-9 in the Big Sky Conference. Eastern opens its season on Nov. 11 against the Gonzaga Bulldogs in Spokane.

During his senior year Dickerson was one of the most consistent players in the state after averaging 22.9 points and nine rebounds a game. “From the first time I saw Cole play, I loved his feel for the game,” said USF head coach Rex Walters. “He has good size, can really shoot the basketball and has an advanced offensive understanding of the game. Cole can score a lot of different ways. He can post up, can shoot the three, can bounce it and get his own shot. He comes from a state championship program and Coach Collins has done a great job with him. His family is a basketball family.” Michael Hale — The Federal Way High School graduate is playing his junior season at the University of Texas-San Antonio.

The good news just keeps coming for Decatur High School graduate Ben Henderson. The professional fighter has started 2-0 in the top mixed-martial arts organization in the world, the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and will fight Clay Guida Nov. 12 at the UFC on Fox card in Anaheim, Calif. But Henderson will get the ultimate compliment early next year when he will become a video game character. The UFC announced last week that the third installment of the “UFC Undisputed” video game franchise is set for a January 2012 debut. The game is produced by THQ development company, who recently released its first “Inside the Octagon” video segment, highlighting key changes to the video game from years past. The video, which can be seen on youtube.com, features THQ officials commentating on a “UFC Undisputed 3” bout between Henderson and Donald Cerrone. The video starts with the game’s new fighter walk-in sequences and then outlines a number of changes to the game, including the updated gameplay options that allow for simpler controls to the sometimes-complex title.

www.federalwaymirror.com [ LETTERS from page 9] sons here. Bob Celski is not a politician. He has never before run for office. He wants to be your city council member because he has a passion to improve our city. Bob will do what is best for you, not for selfserving interests. Bob met his wife, Sue, at Federal Way High School where he was an exceptional student-athlete. He attended West Point and served his country as an Army officer. The Army sent him to the University of Washington to earn a masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree. Bob and Sue raised their three sons in Federal Way: Chris (working for Nordstrom), David (a captain in the U.S. Army), and the youngest, J.R. (USA speed skater who won two medals in the last Winter Olympics). Why vote for Bob Celski? Let me tell you about my â&#x20AC;&#x153;rope test.â&#x20AC;? When I really need to trust someone I go through a mental drill, asking one simple question: If I were hanging over a cliff on a rope, would I trust the individual at the top to save me? In my life, less than 10 people have passed my mental â&#x20AC;&#x153;rope test.â&#x20AC;? Bob is one of them. Bob Celski is one of the finest men I have ever known and he wants to do what is right for you on the Federal Way City Council. When you vote for Bob Celski, you can be assured that he will never let you down.

Dovey and the farmers market We would like the public to be aware of what an asset Federal Way City Councilman Jack Dovey is to the community. When we decided to start the Federal Way Farmers Market, we confided in Jack Dovey and

he spent many hours with us as we moved forward with our plans. Any time we have come up with situations that we have needed help with, he has always been there for us. His leadership skills and guidance were invaluable. You can often see him at the market shopping or supporting the market with a booth. We consider him a friend and value his connection with the city.

Fossos is worth re-electing I have known Jim Fossos for many years and regard his knowledge and skills to be exceptional as a South King Fire and Rescue fire commissioner. He has served our fire district very well. Having worked as a firefighter for 31 years, he understands the fire business. Jim has served our country as a Marine and has dedicated years of time and energy to civic boards and commissions, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been an advocate for the citizens of South King as fire commissioner for over 17 years. Maybe thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why he was asked to serve on the board of the Seattle Metropolitan Credit Union where he has served as chair and secretary. Usually organizations go after capable people who bring qualities that strengthen their organization. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jim. He has a vast array of talent. So, when you need to decide on the right candidate to ensure the well-being of your fire department that it is run with the strongest

leadership and best strategies, you can count on Jim Fossos. Jim is someone who represents the home owners and businesses in Des Moines and Federal Way. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to know who you are voting for. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what I found out about his opponent. Jerry Galland has had no public service. He ran for precinct committee officer in 2008 and was not elected. He ran for the state Legislature in

2010 and lost in the primary. He then applied for an open seat on the Lakehaven Utility District board of commissioners and was not seated. By the way, when he ran for the state Legislature, he received the lowest rating possible by the Municipal League of King County. They said he was not qualified. Their definition of not qualified is â&#x20AC;&#x153;Doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t appear engaged, has a record that casts doubt on ability to be productive, [ more LETTERS page 16 ]

bringing lasting business to Federal Way. This, in turn, has placed an additional burden on homeowners and taxpayers in this city. Because we do not have a good business tax base, all the responsibility for such things as Celebration Park, Dumas Bay, the Community Center and the planned performing arts/civic center comes out of our personal pocket books. An example is the

ever-growing “utility tax.” Additionally, property taxes on your homes have increased and are more than they would be if we shared those expenses mentioned above with Federal Way businesses. Celski and Honda have great experience and great ideas to jump-start business in Federal Way. Their backgrounds are admirable and they are eager to make a difference. Please join me in

voting for Susan Honda and Bob Celski for city council.

Peterson will benefit schools I support Danny Peterson for the Federal Way School Board. He has the educational background, passion and experience to do an excellent job for the district and the students and parents it serves.

He’s a responsive communicator and balanced in his views. Our community can only benefit someone of his caliber in this leadership role. He’s concerned about transparency and providing solutions that help our kids achieve their educational goals and fulfill their dreams for the future. I endorse his candidacy and hope the voters will support him as well.
