City’s legislative agenda targets money, sewers BY GREG ALLMAIN gallmain@fedwaymirror.com

Maintaining funding levels from the state, and lobbying for aid to help increase the downtown core’s sewage capacity, will be Federal Way’s top two legislative agenda items for 2012.

Due to the special legislative session beginning Nov. 28 in Olympia, the city council voted on the legislative agenda ahead of schedule to make sure Federal Way’s concerns are heard properly in the state’s capital. “Our number one priority may be significantly impacted by that

special session,” Mayor Skip Priest said, referencing the fact that state-shared revenues comprise approximately 5 percent of the city’s operating budget. Bryant Enge, director of administrative services, shared how the legislative agenda was developed. “The key principles of this

agenda are to maintain revenue sources, preserve and enhance city services, promote economic growth, address quality of life issues, and to maintain local decision making,” Enge said during the council’s Nov. 15 meeting. Enge said the agenda was categorized to give the city direc-

The public is invited to attend the community’s holiday tree lighting event Friday, Nov. 25, at The Commons Mall near the northwest entrance by FedEx/Kinko’s store. The event begins at 5 p.m. with a welcome by Mayor Skip Priest and performances by the Jet Cities Chorus and the Federal Way Chorale. The mall’s Santa will drop by to visit with the kids and there will be hot chocolate and cookies. The tree lighting will commence by 6 p.m. on a tree already located on the mall’s property. The mall is located at South 320th Street and Pacific Highway South. The event is sponsored by the City of Federal Way, The Commons and South King Fire and Rescue. Holiday street lights will also begin lighting up the downtown, starting Nov. 23 and continuing through New Year’s Eve. There has been an interest in the community for a number of years to have a tree-lighting event for the holidays. Merchants at Dash Point Village have held a similar event in the past. This year’s suggestion came from the Federal Way Arts Commission, according to the city.

Olympic protest made its mark It was 43 years ago, and yet the iconic image of Tommie Smith and John Carlos standing on the Olympic podium in Mexico City is still seared into our collective consciousness as if it were yesterday. With the national anthem playing in the background, their heads bowed in silent protest, their gold and bronze medals from the 200-meter dash reflecting the flash bulbs capturing for eternity their raised black gloved fists and their powerful message. As we grow to adulthood, we each have a period in time that leaves its vivid imprint on our acknowledgment that the world may be a very different place to some than it is to us. The colorful and frivolous hues of childhood are replaced by darker clouds of maturity in our recognition that the world is changing around us in ways we don’t understand. Such was 1968 for me and many of my generation. I grew up in Tacoma, somewhat sheltered from national events. But 1968 found me in Port Angeles attending Peninsula Community College. It was a year of change, challenge and pain. We would lose both Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy to an assassin’s bullet. The Democratic convention in Chicago would turn ugly and display our political disagreement on the direction of the country at its worst to a watching world. Vietnam frightened us as we all knew someone who had been drafted, but wasn’t coming home. The non-violent student protests in Mexico City over poverty ended with a massacre in Tlatelolco Square, which suggested that to some disagreement wasn’t tolerated, and democracy was just a word. Life seemed suddenly fragile. I had run track and had followed the careers of both Smith and Carlos. They were the Usain Bolt of their era. They were held in awe for the majestic manner in which they easily dispatched men of lesser talent. Like others, I had watched untouched and confused as the the civil rights movement unfolded thousands of miles away. I had no understanding of segregation, or separate schools. Or of lavatories or swimming pools or lunch counters determined by color. Those few minutes that Smith and Carlos quietly held the world stage awoke in me a curiosity to an outside world I didn’t know. I wondered why they felt it necessary to lodge Bob Roegner

You might be tempted to turn off the TV and radio these days. You may find yourself redirecting conversations about sexual abuse that include Jerry Sandusky, Joe Paterno or Penn State. You might find it easier to change the subject when another sexual harassment allegation arises against Herman Cain. But these are exactly the times when we should stop what we’re doing, sit down, look our kids in the eye, and answer every single one of their questions. Not answering these questions is dangerous and reinforces the idea that sexual abuse and harassment are embarrassing secrets that kids shouldn’t talk about. In fact, one way to reduce abuse and harassment is to talk to children and teens openly about ways people use sex to hurt others. Safety is a topic about which every parent should talk with their children. Kim Estes of Savvy Parents Safe Kids specializes in doing this without scare tactics. For her Super 10 Rules for Safety, go to savvyparentssafekids.com. These rules include great messages for parents to reinforce with their children, like “I am special and I have the right to be safe at all times,” “My bathing suit areas are private,” and “I always pay attention to my own inner voice, especially that ‘uh-oh’ feeling.” Whether or not Jerry Sandusky is found guilty, it’s important for children to know that it’s not OK for adults to touch children’s genitalia (see above: my bathing suit areas are private). Exceptions to this are few: a doctor doing an exam, or a caregiver helping a child go to the bathroom or bathe. Help young people identify who they can talk to if they feel that feeling in their stomach; you know, the one we all feel when we know something just isn’t right. If your child asks, let him or her know that grown-ups are working to help those children who were hurt in the Penn State scandal. It doesn’t help anyone to make jokes about it, or pretend it didn’t happen, or canonize people who knew abuse was happening and didn’t do everything they could to stop it. The important message to give children now is that grown-ups are working to help the children who were hurt. Whatever comes of the Herman Cain scandal, it’s a great opportunity for a refresher on what constitutes sexual harassment. When you talk about it with young people, be sure to include what to do if it happens to them. Sexual harassment can include, but is not limited to, making gestures or comments of a sexual

their protest and to choose this manner and this venue. I wondered what the silver medal winner, Peter Norman, who is white and from Australia, thought as he stood between the men. I wondered what would happen next? Both men were exiled from the Olympic village and vilified by many throughout the country. The next few years weren’t easy for either man. They lived with death threats. Jobs were hard to find, and Carlos’s first wife committed suicide because of the stress. Recently, John Carlos was a guest speaker at Highline Community College. Now he is Dr. John Carlos, and is a counselor at a Palm Springs High School. He is older and grayer, but he hasn’t lost his sense of right or wrong. His manner isn’t defiant, but humble, thoughtful and deliberate. He is a proud man whose act brought more focus to our national debate about equality. It represents the underlying principles he believes mark the quality of a human being. Smith and Carlos didn’t raise their fists for black power, as many thought.

Peter Norman joined them that fateful day in wearing a button that said “Olympic Project for Human Rights.” Norman faced many of the same difficulties upon his return to Australia. Carlos’s actions brought a face and a focus to the civil rights debate that might never have been achieved had he simply accepted his medal — along with the fame that awaited when he returned to the world of track. He made a choice, a cause over self. In an instant, his life was changed forever and brought pain instead of riches, to himself and those he loved. Pain, that in lesser beings might have broken them. Would he do it again? Justice and equality aren’t just words to John Carlos. He is still carrying that cause daily as he seeks to broaden our understanding and appreciation of each other. Be it as a high school counselor focused on success for youth, giving a speech or writing a book. Yes, he would do it again. Most of us would be happy with a life that made a small difference in our children’s world. Carlos helped change how an entire generation thinks. “We live to make history,” Carlos writes. A fitting tribute to a man who did, and we are better for it. Happy Thanksgiving.

are too many conflicting and confusing images of all kinds of sexual behavior in “reality” and other TV shows. Parents, educators and adults need to teach and remind teens on a regular basis about what is OK, and not OK, in the real world. Students need to know they can say, “Stop it!” and be heard if they are harassed. They should be able to count on

peers to support them. They also need to know to whom they can go in school to get help if harassment doesn’t stop. All young men and women deserve to be safe from unwanted touch, gestures, comments and rumors. No one deserves to be harassed, coerced or assaulted.

ONLINE COMMENT Posted Nov. 16 by ObsidianOne (“School levies go to Feb. 2012 ballot”): WAIT. Is this for homeowners only to pay? I am a Des Moines homeowner and never had kids. My home has declined in value and I’m barely making ends meet. Who votes for these increases? Do people with 5 kids who live in an apartment get to vote for me to pay more in taxes? This system is unfair to the homeowners and I really think another system needs to be in play.

Standards Based Education: Winds of change in Federal Way BY RON PODMORE Federal Way author and teacher

At a recent local school board meeting, there was a considerable amount of vocal dialogue pertaining to Standards Based Education (SBE). Several students, parents and teachers spoke out in regards to where

they stood on this new and volatile issue. Some of the comments were impressive and passionate of those who took the podium. Stories of frustration and success were evident in how individuals articulated themselves. And I’m talking about the students themselves.

They were very eloquent in how they framed their responses, each and every one read from their hearts and not notecards. If you’re not sure what SBE is all about, in its most basic element, it places the responsibility where it squarely

belongs: firmly on the student demonstrating their learning in a consistent and tangible manner that leaves GUEST little to be interpreted. It’s about what they learn, not entirely what is their grade. All too often, I hear students say “What’s my

grade, Mr. P.?” Many years ago, as a newbie to the field of teaching, I recalled under the directive of the 1990 Legislature, and signed by former Gov. Booth Gardner, that to become licensed as a teacher, one needed to possess a master’s degree from an accredited, traditional university. Like a diligent citizen, I returned to college once again and worked on my master’s degree at Lewis and Clark Law School/College. Only upon completion with that piece of paper was I able to apply and find work. Over 20 years later, there are more industry hurdles for teachers to jump through, more certificates to acquire, more exams to take (i.e., statewide Praxis, National Board) and yes, someone will stand up from the mountaintop and profess yet another mechanism to which we can have highly qualified teachers in every classroom. In my 21-year career as a high school teacher thus far, I’ve been engrained with the mantra of “standards based education” almost from the beginning of my career. This concept is not simply a Federal Way School District mandate that our school board passed. It is a mandate our Legislature passed and made a requirement for all of Washington state’s students. Standards based education is not a concept limited to Federal Way. Soon, the almost 300 school districts in our state

will be required to implement what Federal Way is already doing. I’m sure some private schools may opt to go that route as well. The results will be mixed. We will continue to ask ourselves: will what the students learn reduce the need for remedial education if and when they chose to go on to a college? Will the culture of SBE carry into higher education? Will SBE stop the slow passive slide of American public education in general and result, instead, in a slow climb upward? Regardless of these questions I pose for both the community and parents, to borrow the catchphrase from the old “X-Files” series on television: we are not alone. Other school districts and states are at various stages of implementation of SBE. Some, such as the tiny school district of Round Rock, Texas (suburb of Austin) needed to scrap it entirely and start over. In a recent Seattle PostIntelligencer editorial, from a global perspective, there are countries in Europe and Asia that are further advanced in the concept of SBE. We cannot afford to be left behind anymore. After all, it is today’s students that will ultimately choose our nursing homes. What kind of a person do you want attending to you when you are relegated to Shady Pines Retirement Home? And yes, I still have my humor. Increasingly, I need it in the profession I’ve chosen.

According to the Washington State Employment Report of 2010, Washingtonians with developmental disabilities in individual jobs earned over $24 million in wages in 2009. Cuts have to come from somewhere. However, cutting programs that provide jobs is not the way out of the recession. We urge to contact your legislator before Nov. 28 and advocate for continued funding for the supported employment program.

Approximately 4,100 Washingtonians with disabilities will lose their jobs from these cuts not only affecting participants of the program, but members of the entire community. Employees of supporting agencies will also lose their jobs. Parents of participants will be forced to quit their jobs to take care of their disabled sons and daughters. Additionally, local businesses will lose an integral part of their workforce. Supported employment creates revenue. The program promotes diversity and productivity. Developmentally disabled

by the fact that “A Christmas Carolâ€? will have so many families all acting together, saying it’s really fun to watch that interaction. Nelson said she feels this production, and Rosebud’s future forays into community theater, will help bring Federal Way together. “This community theater builds community because it comes from the community, and it also becomes its own community, where everybody works together,â€? she said. Rose said that while the cast may be determined already, Rosebud is always looking for volunteers to come help with “front of houseâ€? duties, such as ticket and concession sales. A bonus for the volunteers, she said, is that they can see the performances for free. Outside of volunteering, Rose said anybody who’s interested in trying out for future community theater productions is welcome. While it may be daunting for many people to think of getting on a stage and acting, she said there’s no reason for trepidation. “Doing theater is really just‌living. It’s being a person. If you can walk and talk in your life, come and try it on stage,â€? she said. “Theater can be very daunting, when you look at the professionals and the heavy dramas and stuff, but we don’t do those. We tend to stay on the light-hearted side of it, the family-oriented side of it. For the upcoming production, Rose said she hopes the community turns out because she anticipates a good time. “Just come and see it,â€? she said with a smile. “’A Christmas Carol’ is such a good story, and it has a good message, especially today.â€?

... HOLIDAY EVENTS, GIFT & DECOR IDEAS

Trends in Holiday Decor ‌ the classic, the trendy and the unique Sometimes there’s nothing better than a classic look of red and gold standing next to a fireplace lined with red-and-gold decorations. Other times, the need to break out the box and experiment with some of the latest trends in holiday dÊcor is clear. If that is how you’re feeling, here is a brief look at some of the trends you might come across this season as you shop. Set boundaries ‌ Invite no more guests to stay at your home than it can accommodate. The smaller your home, the fewer people there should be on your guest list. Don’t try to squeeze 10 guests into a twobedroom home. They won’t have enough space to mingle, much less get a comfortable rest, and that could lead to tension, or worse, guests leaving. Color rocks! ‌ Bright, bold colors are making their way into holiday dÊcor, not only in ornaments, tree skirts and other decorations, but in the tree itself. Manufacturers are filling store shelves with artificial trees of every color, from the traditional green to snowy white to metallic silver to hot pink and orange! Designers recommend creating a neutral backdrop, upon which any brightly colored accents will pop. Hot pink, orange and lime green ornaments, for example, would look stunning against a white tree. Personality is key ‌ The selection of ornaments is bigger than ever. In addition to all of the classics, like reindeer and snowmen, manufacturers are producing a wide range of ornaments to suit every taste and interest, whether animals or musical instruments. Even the classic ball ornament comes in every color, size and shape imaginable. Retro returns ‌ What is old is new again in dÊcor. Manufacturers have capitalized on that fact and are churning out reproduction after reproduction. For those who prefer the authentic, shopping at antique shops, flea markets and thrift stores is the way to go. Many offer a number of vintage decorations, some in spectacular condition. Green is in! ‌ The need to preserve and protect Mother Earth

has penetrated all aspects of the design world, including holiday dĂŠcor. People are looking for ways to go green this year, and manufacturers are answering with a variety of green products from LED lights to eco-friendly ornaments.

It’s all about you ‌ You can follow the trends or create your own. You can glam it up with glitz & animal prints, or pare it down with candles and pinecones strung up with ribbon. Decorating for the holidays is about what you and your family like, whether the classic, the trendy or the unique.

Stay healthy this winter: Get your flu shot soon BY DR. AMPARO-ARMI FRANCO St. Francis Hospital, Federal Way

The single best way to protect yourself against the flu is to get vaccinated each year. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that people get their seasonal flu vaccine as soon as vaccine becomes available, as it is now in our

community. Vaccination before the end of December is best because this timing ensures that protective antibodies are in place before flu activity is typically at its highest. This year’s vaccine will protect against the three influenza viruses that research indicates will be most common during

the flu season, including an important that specific influenza A (H1N1) virus groups get vaccinated either and an influenza B because they are at virus.

New concept; “DON’T BUY WINDOWS UNTIL YOU TALK TO TOM”, Guarantees you windows by Christmas!

Special purchase items. Excludes Doorbuster.

With a new “bulk rate purchasing” concept, Energy Alternatives has made a positive impact on the local residential window market. “We realized that there was a smarter way for homeowners to place their new window orders, to obtain a more significant savings from the window manufacturer,” Tom Pitzer explains. A father of six, Mr. Pitzer began Energy Alternatives, an energy auditing and consulting company, with two of his sons. “We found that the business relationships we have developed in the window industry, gave us the unique opportunity to bundle our customers’ windows orders, with other orders being placed by other contractors.” This bulk rate pricing, is achieved by receiving a better factor from the window manufacturer. The ‘awn’ factor is based on the size of the order. The larger the order, the lower the price. Currently Energy Alternatives is promoting a window replacement drive in Federal Way. The participating contractors are local to the Federal Way, Auburn area and have committed to reduced labor rates as well. This winter promotion has an ordering deadline set for Dec. 15th. Bob Holmgren, one of the companies’s preferred contractors, and owner of Northwest Construction and Supply of Auburn, submits, “We are excited to be a part of a program which enables us to bring the cost of the window down”. Mr. Holmgren has re- structured his labor pricing to ac-

commodate this winter event. “We may not make as much money on one job”, he continues, “but we’re making up for it by being able to do more jobs in a shorter period of time.” Energy Alternatives has been notifying as many Federal Way homeowners as possible, about this unique opportunity. “We are hand delivering invitations to homes with outdated windows, but it’s impossible to reach everyone,” Mr. Pitzer explains. Several families have benefitted from this program, and more are invited. “We can lower the cost for everybody across the board.” The previous campaign has proven that bulk rate pricing, along with labor discounts, can save a homeowner a minimum of 35% from retail pricing. The ordering deadline is Dec. 15th, so call Energy Alternatives at 253-221-5522, and recieve a free cost estimate.

The Federal Way School Board approved two levy proposals to be placed on a Feb. 14, 2012, ballot. The two proposals are the “replacement” Educational Programs and Operations (EPO) levy, and a capital levy for the renovation/rebuilding of Federal Way High School. The EPO levy will ask voters for a continuation of a current levy approved three years ago and is set to expire in 2012. It will range between $45 million and $53 million, depending on what the state Legislature does regarding Local Effort Assistance (LEA) funds. The capital levy on the ballot will ask voters to approve $60 million over six years for the renovation of Federal Way High School. The district has been able to accumulate $50 million for this project already. Both levies must pass by a simple majority. Stay tuned for more levy information in The Mirror.

www.federalwaymirror.com Other top priorities were public safety, transportation, economic development and Sound Transit. Enge said for public safety, the city will support legislation that enhances local law enforcement agencies’ ability to combat auto theft and other property crimes. Transportation was focused on the Triangle project at Interstate 5 and State Route 18, and the

[ PODMORE from page 6] I work with some incredible students that give me hope, and then there are those that I just cringe with the ubiquitous “Where are the parents?â€? The SBE journey is fraught with tension, angst, overburdened teachers and in some rare cases overburdened parents devoid of involvement. However, never have the student expectations been clearer. With my optimism, I hope that not just a few parents, but rather the moms and/or dads (in some cases, even grandparents) will become completely involved in their children’s education. Success includes the three tiers of communication (parent, student and teacher). Effective dialogue will form like an interlocking puzzle, cohesively with the light always shining on the student. In the reality, I’m just a teacher in the trenches. I have no idea how in the grand scheme of SBE on a statewide basis, whether this will all result in student success. I know that the one factor missing is “real time data.â€? (in old language, this means “grades.â€?) Nothing is more imperative than the students’ sole desire to know exactly where he/she stands in regards to a given class exam. They still want to know how they did. “Did I pass? Did I fail? Did I meet standard? Do I need to reassess‌ again?â€? Are all common conversations that I have daily with my students. I do know from my training at Western Washington University many years ago that the single biggest indicator of student success (or failure) is their ability to know where they are in regards to making progress, almost instantly. Referencing SBE, it is not a “here today, gone tomorrowâ€? acronym. Our legislators wrote this policy into state code. Each district is required design and implement in very short

remaining funding needed to complete the new onand off-ramps between I-5 and SR 18. “We want to make sure we have our hat in the ring for the $118 million needed to complete the project,� Enge said. Economic development is geared toward asking for $1 million to upgrade the downtown core’s sewer capacity. Sound Transit will focus on getting the regional transit authority to act with timelines. Federal Way had teachers involved in the design of goals (called “Power Standards�) and objectives (“Learning Targets�) of what are the crucial and most important pieces of knowledge a student must master. The students have no choice but to rise to the challenge. Many of them (dare I say most?) must disengage themselves from social media websites such as Twitter and Facebook, as well as their cellphones, and simply go through the withdrawals by leaving their phones at home. Ideally, these students need to take the lead by firmly engaging their minds in a way that develops their intellect. They must clearly demonstrate what is inside their heads, free of outside influences. They must deliver or face severe consequences. Suffice to say, SBE is truly a political beast. A new pathway has been created, a new course (pardon the pun) to chart. To borrow a favorite quote from one of my former students, “it is what it is.� We being the student, parent, teacher and administrator are now confronted with these state mandates of learning expectations. We are creating an avenue for K-12 students to acquire and then apply what they must show due diligence. Before long, that storm cloud will follow our students and with them, their attitudes about learning will transcend to technical schools, training institutions and yes, colleges with their less-thanstellar graduation rates. I just wonder, is highered paying attention to these winds of change? I don’t know, but I’m sure I’ll find out, and hopefully not when I’m at Shady Pines.

Federal Way resident Ron Podmore, M.Ed, is a National Board Certified teacher, a K-12 licensed administrator and author of two books. He was a recent guest on the Suze Orman show.

fairness and transparency in its dealings with the city in regards to getting light rail into Federal Way and the South Sound. Sound Transit announced last spring that light rail in Federal Way will be scrapped due to a 31 percent shortfall in tax revenue collections for the South King County area. Deputy Mayor Dini Duclos called for the downtown sewer upgrade to be pushed up the list, asking why it wasn’t one of the

highest priorities. “I don’t think (this) is out of reason, especially with what we’re trying to do with the downtown,� Duclos said. “I’d like to move it into the highest category, you’d only have two, and that’s not that bad.� The council agreed with the deputy mayor. The agenda and Duclos’ modification were approved unanimously, with councilwoman Linda Kochmar recusing herself on the vote.

be overcome last year, forcing the district to eliminate some positions and scale back a number of programs. The district anticipates a similar shortfall this year, and is also having to consider the loss of its Local Effort Assistance funds, a monetary stream that was initially created to help financially poor districts like FWPS have equal footing in the state.

sion of the Legislature begins, OFM director Marty Brown said his office is ready to meet the challenge head-on in a collaborative effort with the legislators. “Today’s forecast underscores the urgency of our budget situation,� Brown said. “We have been working hard for months and are ready to go to work with the Legislature to find a balanced solution to our latest shortfall.�

K.W. Williams, Jefferson The senior had a monster season for the Raiders and was key to leading TJ into the postseason for the first time in the school’s history. Williams led the entire South Puget Sound League in rushing yards with 1,282 yards during the nine league games. Williams was the first-team, All-SPSL North quarterback and the division’s offensive back of the year. He also became the third quarterback in SPSL history to rush for 1,000 yards and throw for 1,000 yards during the season. He finished with 1,111 yards with 11 touchdowns. In total, he accounted for 26 touchdowns in nine games. Williams’ best statistical game came during a win over Kent-Meridian. He finished with 200 yards on the ground and a pair of touchdowns and also passed for 242 yards and three touchdowns.

Signing Day: A pair of Beamer aces ink letters of intent Bower will pitch at UW and Blauser at Western; Gators’ Beyke signs with Seattle U BY CASEY OLSON sports@fedwaymirror.com

Beamer’s Emma Blauser will, most likely, play middle infield next year at Western Washington University. FILE PHOTO

The baseball and fastpitch teams around the South Puget Sound League aren’t going to be big fans of facing the Todd Beamer Titans this spring. Beamer will feature two of the best pitchers in the area in Matt Bower and Emma Blauser. The pair both inked their national letters of intent last week

in a ceremony at Beamer on the first day of the early-signing period for recruits. “They are both not only great players, but also great kids,” said Beamer Athletic Director Jerry Peterson. “We wish them both the best of luck.” Bower, a lanky lefthanded pitcher, signed to pitch at the UniverMatt Bower sity of Washington. Blauser, a right-hander, will play softball at Western Washington. Despite pitching every game for the Titans during her career, Blauser will be a middle infielder in college.

Bower was Beamer’s ace as a junior, ending up with a 4-4 record and a 3.90 earned-run average for the Titans. He struck out 46 hitters in just 37 2/3 innings of work and was a second-team, All-SPSL South selection as a pitcher. “I really liked the coaches and the way they play the game,” said Bower, who has a 3.5 grade-point average. “They really know a lot about the game and are an up-and-coming program.” Washington finished 17-37 last year under head coach Lindsey Meggs and were just 6-21 in the rugged Pac10 Conference. But the Huskies are starting to recruit more talent and are currently building a $4 million UW [ more SIGNINGS page 18 ]

[ ALL-CITY from page 14 ]

WIDE RECEIVER Willie Roach, Beamer The senior has prototypical wide receiver size at 6-foot-2, 185 pounds. He was a first-team, AllSPSL South selection after catching 37 passes for 623 yards and five touchdowns. Roach’s best game came in a loss to Bethel, when he caught four passes for 74 yards and two touchdowns. Mike Tate, Federal Way The junior will be a bigtime recruit next season after another solid year for the Eagles. The 6-foot, 175-pounder didn’t have eye-popping numbers. He finished with nearly 300 yards receiving and three touchdown catches, but constantly required double teams.

FILE PHOTO Michael Klavuhn, Decatur The senior was a big-time playmaker for the Gators and finished with 29 catches for 462 yards. Klavuhn also caught eight touchdown passes and was a secondteam, All-SPSL 3A selection at wide receiver. “All he did was make plays,� said Decatur head coach Leon Hatch. Gunner Sonnenfeld, Jefferson The TJ senior led the Raiders with 27 catches for 441 yards and three touchdowns this season. He was a second-team, AllSPSL North wide receiver after playing tight end last year. Sonnenfeld had a pair of 100-plus yard receiving games.

OFFENSIVE LINE Jefferson Aumua, Jefferson The massive Aumua paved the way for Williams’ big season on the ground and in the air. The 6-foot3, 350-pounder was a first-team, All-SPSL North selection. Uso Olive, Federal Way The 305-pound Olive was a first-team, All-SPSL South selection after opening huge holes for May to run through. Olive has already made a verbal commitment to play next season at Portland State University. Albert Havili, Federal Way Like Olive, the Eagle junior was a first-team, All-SPSL South selection by the league’s coaches. Havili

will be back next season opening holes for freshman phenom running back Chico McClatcher. Faauiga Taala, Federal Way The 5-foot-10, 250-pounder was a secondteam, All-SPSL North pick and helped the Eagles finish second in the SPSL South in rushing offense with 260.2 yards per game. “He is a beast,� Meagher said. “He was our center and was great for us all year.� Kyle Gleed, Decatur The 275-pound junior tackle was a second-team, All-SPSL 3A selection and was the Gators’ top offensive lineman during their season. Gleed is also a talented heavyweight wrestler for the Gators.

DEFENSE LINEBACKERS Jordan Pulu, Federal Way The senior was a firstteam, preseason all-state selection and didn’t disappoint. The 6-foot3, 235-pound middle linebacker was a beast in the middle for the Eagles’ defense and will play next fall at Washington State University. Pulu was named the SPSL South Division’s Linebacker of the Year by the coaches. Pulu led Federal Way in tackles with 61 in nine SPSL games for an average of 6.8 a game. He had 50 solo

Rod Jones, Federal Way The junior was one-third of the Eagles’ amazing linebacking corps. The 6-foot-2, 235-pounder was a second-team, All-SPSL South selection by the league’s coaches. According to Meagher, Jones will, most likely, be a Division-I recruit next season. “Our defense was the strength of our team and the linebackers were the key reason,� he said. Albert Havili, Federal Way The 6-foot-2, 232-pounder also patrolled the middle of the defense for the Eagles and was a first-team, All-SPSL South Division selection. Havili should be a preseason, all-state selection next year and, like Pulu, should sign a Division-I scholarship dur-

ing his senior season. “Albert Havili is a flat-out stud,� Meagher said. “He will be the best linebacker we have ever had by the time he is done next year.� Gunner Sonnenfeld, Jefferson The senior was a secondteam, All-SPSL North selection at linebacker for the Raiders. Sonnenfeld finished the regular season with 53 total tackles for an average of 7.5 a game. Jefferson finished the season allowing opponents 22.3 points a game, which was fourth in the SPSL North. Connor Schilling, Decatur The senior was the Gators’ leading tackler this season and was an honorable mention All-SPSL 3A selection. Schilling finished with 56 tackles and one sack. “He should have been first- or second-team, but Lakes had five (linebackers)

He is physically gifted, but trains himself hard. He watches what he eats and is special in his preparation and that makes a difference in the strength department.� Shawn Prigget, Beamer The Titan senior had an impressive season despite the team not winning many ballgames. Prigget finished fourth in the SPSL South with 774 yards rushing during the regular season. He also had six touchdowns and returned kicks for the Titans. His best game came against Spanaway Lake when he ran for 197 yards on 19 carries. He also finished with 146 yards and a pair of touchdowns in a loss to Rogers. He was a second-team, All-SPSL South selection.

LEGAL NOTICES PUBLIC NOTICE - 2012 SOLID WASTE RATE INCREASES In accordance with RCW 35.21.157, the City of Federal Way provides this notice of upcoming solid waste rate increases for Waste Management of Washington customers located in Federal Way. The City of Federal Way manages a contract with Waste Management of Washington for regulated solid waste and recycling collection services and pricing. This contract includes annual rate adjustments tied to published Consumer Price Index (CPI) data, as well as periodic adjustments based on King County disposal fees. In 2012, both CPI and tipping fees are slated to increase. A third increase also occurs in 2012: the Local Hazardous Waste Management Program (LHWMP) surcharge that applies to residential and commercial accounts. This Public Notice is a summary of all three pending rate increases. Individual refuse collection rates generally consist of two components: ‘Disposal’ + ‘Service’ = Current Rate. ‘Disposal’ is based on average container weights, factoring in tipping fees set by King County. The King County Council authorized an increase in tipping fees effective January 1, 2012. Tipping fees will increase from $95 per ton to $109 per ton. This increase of approximately 14.7% is applied only to the ‘Disposal’ component of rates. This covers transfer and disposal of wastes delivered to King County facilities. For more information, contact King County Solid Waste Division at 206.296.4466, or visit http://your.kingcounty.gov/solidwaste/index.asp. The ‘Service’ rate component adjusts annually by a CPI factor every March 1. A temporary increase in the Business & Occupation Tax is also itemized into the new rates, subject to a future sunset date. The CPI factor and B&O Tax will increase the ‘Service’ components of residential and commercial rates by approximately 3.2% on March 1, 2012. The annual CPI adjustment in the City’s contract with Waste Management provides for relative price stability, with minimal annual rate changes tied to

a set published index. The LHWMP surcharge is a flat fee that applies to all accounts based on generator type. Effective January 1, 2012, the residential customer surcharge increases by 28 cents per month to $1.08 per month. The commercial account surcharge increases from $9.07 per month to $11.24 per month. This fee covers the county-wide program for safe collection of hazardous waste, education on safe alternatives to toxic products, and business outreach to assist with hazardous waste disposal compliance. For more information on this surcharge call the Hazards Line at 206.296.4692. Customers may offset the impact of fee increases through waste reduction and recycling options. For example, Residential customers may: t Increase recycling cart size (at no added cost) and recycle more, and/or t Increase yard debris/food scrap recycling, and/or t Reduce garbage container size. Commercial customers are encouraged to request limited no-cost recycling service (up to two 96-gallon carts per individual business). Multi-family customer rates include complete recycling services at no added cost. Upon request, City Public Works staff will assist customers with options to offset these 2012 rate increases. Over 200 individual rates are recalculated through this process. A complete set of 2012 rates is available for inspection at the City of Federal Way, Dept. of Public Works, 33325 8th Avenue South, Federal Way, WA 98003. For more information, please call the Public Works Department at (253) 835-2770 or (253) 835-2771. The contracted service provider, Waste Management of Washington can be reached at (253) 833-3333, or (800) 592-9995.

Tucker was also Federal Way’s quarterback on offense. J.J. McNeal, Federal Way The junior was a firstteam, All-SPSL South selection and was the Eagles’ surest tackler in the defensive backfield. “His numbers weren’t eye popping, but if you saw him in action at all, you know his speed and tackling abilities,� Meagher said. “We moved him from corner, his natural position, to free safety because he’s such a strong tackler.�

“He is the best corner I’ve coached,� said Hatch. “He is just a natural.

“I went to a camp at Western in August and it was my last shot to impress them,� said Blauser, who has a 3.86 GPA. “And after the camp, the coach offered me a scholarship. I just love the whole town of Bellingham. The campus is terrific.� Western Washington made its third NCAA post-season appearance and first since 2007 last season before losing in the NCAA Division II West Sub-Regionals. The Vikings finished 36-16, which is the most wins in school history.

Baseball Team Building that will house a locker room, training room, study area, coaches’ offices and a 1,400-square-foot meeting room. “Matt is a 6-foot-5, left-handed pitcher who has not yet even begun to develop,� said Meggs. “With a pro body and a fastball presently in the mid-80’s, Matt has the potential to be a power guy down the road. Matt is only going to get better and once he begins to add more size and strength to that 6-5 frame, well the sky is the limit. Matt’s best days are truly ahead of him and if all goes right, he could be a monster before it’s all over.� Blauser has been a star at Beamer since her freshman season. As a junior, she was the second-team, All-SPSL South pitcher and was also one of the Titans’ better hitters. On the mound, Blauser finished with a league-best 16 complete games and ended up with a 9-7 record. Blauser threw 100 innings and struck out 87. At the plate, Blauser hit an impressive .400 with 15 RBIs and 22 runs. She also finished with six doubles, five stolen bases and led the SPSL South with two home runs and 15 walks.

Beyke led the Gators to the SPSL 3A team title for the second year in a row last month and will go down as one of the best individual golfers in school history.
