Levies, bond could help out Renton schools The Renton School District will ask voters this winter to fill the budget gap not covered by state, federal or district funds raised from rental facility fees with two levies and one bond measure on the Feb. 14 ballot.

The measures are needed to fund everything from classroom learning materials, math instruction, software licenses, bus transportation, and safety improvements to a badly needed new middle school. If the measures are approved, collection would begin in 2013. The district estimates that they would cost taxpayers an additional 69 cents per

$1,000 of assessed valuation initially, raising the rate collected to $5.40 per $1,000. Homeowners with a home valued at $252,000 would pay a total of $1,361. Maintenance and operations make up 30 percent of the budget and every four years the district has to ask taxpayers for a renewed commitment to funding, said Randy Matheson, district spokesperson.

Santa Claus made an early visit to a Renton family on an antique fire engine truck and was wwescorted by vehicles and firefighters from Station 17 on Monday. The very special trip and parade of equipment was part of a program developed with Communities in Schools of Renton and the Renton Firefighters Local 864 Firefighters Benevolent Fund. Communities in Schools identifies lowincome families in need and the Firefighters Benevolent Fund gives $250 to each fire station for each family. One family is assigned to each fire station and in addition to those funds, firefighters contribute money as well. “It happened last year with a station looking for a family and then it turned into a family per station and now it’s gone to outside the city of Renton,” said Sue Paro, executive director of Communities in Schools of Renton. “We’ve grown just in between last year and this year.” As the vehicles arrived at the apartment complex where Linda Beckwith and her family lives, the spectacle drew attention from children like the Pied Piper. Santa arrived and passed out candy canes, but his intended audience was with Beckwith’s three boys. The boys - Gabriel White, 3; Antonio

This comes in the form of the Education Maintenance and Operations Replacement Levy, which was on the 2008 ballot and will expire in 2012. A second levy is being put on the ballot that provides for math, reading and writing instruction, student assessment, teacher

Santa, specially sent by Renton Fire and Emergency Services, visits Antonio Beckwith, James Beckwith and Gabriel White. TRACEY COMPTON, Renton Reporter Beckwith, 7 and James Beckwith, 9 - stood in excited amazement and shock as Santa climbed from the truck. Santa, a Renton firefighter, brought in a sack of goodies with the help of other staff from Station 17 to the Beckwith’s home. The boys tore into one present each and saved the rest for Christmas. Linda Beckwith, their mother, called the experience great. “I’ve been feeling great all week; it’s really nice because my kids wouldn’t have had anything,” she said. “I lost a lot of hours on my job, so this was great that

they were able to do that for my kids.” All Renton Fire Stations plus District 20 in Skyway participated in the toy giveaway program. About two weeks ago Linda Beckwith went shopping with Capt. John Hettick and Firefighter John Hollcraft from Station 17. “John and I pushed the cart and it was a wonderful experience,” said Hettick. Beckwith loaded up the cart, but only wanted to get gifts for her children and mother. [ more FIREFIGHTERS page 7 ]

With a bit of serendipitous luck, Richard Tynes went from unemployed to overworked by Thanksgiving, all with the help of his mother’s pie recipe. Tynes is the man behind Ms. Margie’s Sweet Potato Pies. The pies first appeared at the Renton Farmers Market this summer and became so popular that they eventually landed a place on the shelves at all four Uwajimaya grocery stores in the greater Seattle area. But, it all happened by chance. Tynes was holding on to a moneymaker. Its potential he hadn’t fully realized yet when he was baking in the kitchen one day as an out-of-work carpenter. “I can’t really tell you why I started,” he said. “I just started messing around in the kitchen one day and trying to perfect my mom’s recipe and boom, bam!” Tynes remembers the day his version of this mother, Margie Tynes’ sweet potato pie came together. One of his daughters told him he finally got it right and said, “This is Thanksgiving and Christmas all wrapped in one,” he remembered. Tynes’ mother will never get to taste his version of her pies, she died in 1991. The first thing one detects about Tynes’ pies is the cinnamon. Some have even been tricked into thinking that they are pumpkin pies because of their sophisticated mix [ more PIES page 14 ]

Listening to people tell their stories, that’s a big part of what Erin Milliren and her 44 volunteers do in a United Way of King County program called Bridge to Basics. And the story she hears most often among some of the state’s 9 percent who are unemployed is that, “It’s bleak out there,� she said. Bridge to Basics runs in partnership with another outreach organization called Within Reach. Through it, volunteers provide assistance connecting people, including the unemployed, to resources to help them stay afloat. Volunteers help people in need apply for food stamps, utilities assistance, pregnancy nutrition, free or low-cost children’s health insurance, child- care subsidies and job training. On average they help to submit about 60 Basic Food applications a month. In

October, the Within Reach outreach staff, which consists of four AmeriCorps service members, two full-time employees and the Bridge to Basics volunteer team, spoke to a total of 1,022 community members. They submitted 89 Basic Food or food-stamp applications and made referrals to community assistance agencies and resources. Milliren supervises three volunteers in the Renton area who frequent the city’s Work Source center, one of their busiest sites for this work. “There are a lot of Washington community members who are in crisis right now,� she said. A major part of her job is helping people understand that they aren’t alone. Milliren has noticed that there are a lot of people in their 40s, 50s and 60s looking for jobs. A lot of people she’s met with had high-paying jobs at companies like Boeing and Microsoft and are now feeling over[ more BASICS page 16 ]

Well-known portrait photographer Bruce Hudson has a new backdrop – Tukwila. Hudson during the last 30 years or so has photographed thousands of high school seniors and countless families on vacation and in special moments. He started in Fairwood in 1982 and moved to Benson Road in Renton in 1987. In October he moved his Hudson’s Portrait Design to the Tukwila Commerce Center in Southcenter, where he and his son Josh are expanding their business line. The Southwest King County Chamber of Commerce will hold a ribbon cutting at 4 p.m. Jan. 11. Earlier, the Renton Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting at Hudson’s studio, in recognition of his many years in the Renton business community. Much has changed in the photography business in those 30 years. Film has given way to digital photography, which has made it possible for almost anyone to record family events and then share the photos easily. The recession has forced professional photographers out of business as their longtime customers tightened their belts. To survive, those who remain, such as Hudson, are

RADFORD, Renton Reporter changing their relationship with the customers. “We have been diversifying a lot,� he said. And he’s spending more time with each customer. One of those new business lines are classes in digital photography; Hudson has been teaching photography for about 20 years. Hudson now teaches a basic digital class, but he plans to add intermediate and advanced classes. His new studio has enough space for about 40 students at a time. Right now, a whole new generation knows about Photoshop, but

not so much about photography, said Josh, who is handling the business and marketing side of the business. That’s where his father comes in, with his 30 years of experience. Ultimately, the Hudsons see the classes as the first steps toward creating a photographic academy or school. Some, including Hudson, may suggest that training photographers is like training his competition. But, in fact, he says these students are not only learning about photography but also what he can do as a photographer. They are becoming his clients.

Hudson is expanding his commercial photography, which the Hudsons describe as the fastest-growing part of their business. Their services include portraits and assistance with marketing and websites. His photo safaris continue; he’s doing an Alaska cruise photo safari next year and will photograph three families in Hawaii in February. There are the Santa photos, too, in the studio. His son-in-law, Dustin Nicholson, is his Santa. Hudson is perhaps best known for taking photos of graduating seniors, as many as 300 a year. His Renton studio had a large outdoor portrait park, where students and their families could choose multiple settings. Now, he photographs about 100 seniors a year, but spends more time with each and at more locations. About 95 percent of their photographs are taken on location. He’s already searched out locations; nearby are parks, the Green River and even the sides of a warehouse, which can take on a whole new meaning in the hands of the right photographer. “There is a really cool train track and train trestle that the kids are totally digging,� Josh said.

Lindbergh pool stands to benefit from bond measure Trying not to overshadow the educational needs of the Renton School District, community members hope area pools get a boost from a February election bond measure. The “Building for a Lifetime of Learning School Improvement Bond,� offers many district improvements, including a new middle school and upgrades to the Lindbergh High School pool, if it passes in the Feb. 14 special election. Among other things, the passage of the bond would allow for energy-saving improvements to be made to the Lindbergh High School pool, potentially decreasing the expenses it and the Hazen pool cost the district and the community in money they have to raise overall for both pools’ operations. However, even with the passage of the bond, the community is still responsible for raising funds to close the gap between the pools’ revenues and expenses. It costs the district about $900,000 to operate both pools. Renton Pools Commu-

nity, the local community group that has been raising funds to save Renton’s pools, has contributed to nearly $80,000 for that effort this school year. With some funds carried over into the next year, the organization is working on raising the remaining $40,000 to reach the $60,000 to keep the pools open for the 20122013 school year. “We will still continue to count on the public to financially support to keep the pools open, even if the improvement bond passes,� said Randy Matheson, district spokesperson. The pools are not a money-making endeavor and if the district was running them like a business, they would have been shut down a long time ago, he said. However, both pools have recently proven that they are resources that are in demand. “For both Lindbergh and Hazen pools, they had the highest revenue year ever, even with the current economy,� said Bryce Jensen, Lindbergh pool manager, of the pools’ performance last year. Recently the Renton School District learned that it didn’t have complete in-

formation from the county on what it costs to operate the pools. King County had two budgets for utilities and operating costs, Matheson said.

We Are Your Place For Complete Dental Care

The county gave the district the operating costs not the utilities costs; another department had been paying for it and didn’t give the district that information. “It’s more to operate than what we thought,� Matheson said. “With what we’re spending and what the community is raising, it still costs a lot,� he said.

A grandson and grandmother were burglarized in Renton in early December. Thieves made off with the grandmother’s jewelry while she was gone on a trip. Police and the grandson suspect that the thieves are friends of the grandson, who he invited over during his grandmother’s absence. There were no signs of forced entry to the residence in the 19900 block of 106th Avenue Southeast.

Disgruntled ex takes revenge A disgruntled ex-boyfriend took his frustrations out on his ex-girlfriend’s vehicle on Nov. 24. The two dated for four years and have a child in common, but broke up two months ago. The 23-year-old male became upset recently, according to the woman, because she is dating someone else. The man came over to the 23-yearold woman’s residence. He asked her to come outside and when she didn’t he supposedly shattered her vehicle’s windshield.

Police aided in tracking vehicle prowlers Police stopped a vehicle prowling in progress and got some help from a civilian capturing one of the suspects on Dec. 8. An officer responded to a report of a vehicle theft in progress at AAMCO, 500 SW Grady Way, at 6:04 a.m. The officer observed several sus-

pects prowling and removing items from another vehicle the suspects were parked next to in the parking lot. When the officer activated their emergency lights and ordered them to stop, one suspect took off in a truck and the other fled on foot. A civilian just across the street stopped the suspect fleeing on foot and held him on the ground. The other suspect’s truck was found with speakers stolen from the victim’s vehicle. The suspect in custody was arrested for investigation of vehicle prowling and obstructing a law enforcement officer.

Police responded to an alarm at the shop located at 225 Sunset Boulevard North at 5:39 a.m. A police officer found the store’s manager there investigating and the rear business door pried open when they arrived. The two also found numerous firearms in a room leaning against the walls, but none appeared to be missing from the store.

While police took custody of a suspect from a bail bonds agent, the suspect collapsed on Nov. 23. The 47-year-old Renton woman was handed over to police because she failed to notify the bail bonds company of her move. She had been charged with third degree theft and driving with a suspended license. While police were searching her, she complained of chest pains and fell to the floor. Police found nitroglycerin in her pocket. She was transported to Valley Medical Center.

Explicit graffiti About $1,500 worth of damage was done to a Renton residence caused by graffiti on Dec. 9. The residence, in the 2300 block of Southeast Eighth Drive, had graphic descriptions of sexual acts allegedly performed by the residence’s owner’s sister. The graffiti was signed “LiL Pack,� which is a street name used by a suspect known to both the victims. Pictures of the damage were submitted into evidence.

OPINION

● QUOTE OF NOTE:

“We need to create something that eliminates the overcrowding of our middle schools. “ Renton School District spokesman Randy Matheson, on the need to approve a bond issue in February

The price we pay for health-care cuts is more than we save

Question of the week:

?

“Are you without health insurance?”

Vote online: www.rentonreporter.com Last week’s poll results: “Have you ever been a victim of a burglary or a vehicle break-in?” Yes: 82% No: 17%

As a physician in Renton, I’m very concerned about what years of budget cuts are doing to our state’s health-care system. While you may have not yet felt the pain, I promise you, your neighbors have. Soon we’ll all experience the impact of more cuts to health care if the Legislature ignores the governor’s call to include new revenue to solve the state budget deficit. Some say these cuts will save us money. But the price we pay will be greater than the savings. An all-cuts budget would dismantle our primary health-care safety net, by eliminating Disability Lifeline, a vital program for people who are temporarily disabled, and Basic Health, which gives health coverage to struggling working families. Instead of getting preventive care at their local community health center, like HealthPoint here in Renton where I work, people who have lost their health coverage will forego treatment until the emergency room is their only option. What could have been a $150 primary care visit becomes a $16,000 inpatient hospital stay. If you need stitches or a cast for a broken arm, expect to get in line at the ER behind parents seeking help for their one-year-old’s earache, or others seeking treatment for their chronic conditions. You can also look forward to skyrocketing health insurance premiums as hospitals pass these costs on. More cuts to health care will take a dev-

astating toll on real people. We see an average of 76 patients each day at HealthPoint Renton, while the lobby is packed with a growing number of others hoping for a cancellation. Dozens of other clinics across the state face the same wearisome scenario. For people like Karen D. who has always worked but does not receive insurance from her employer, regular access to her doctor and medication not only sustains normality, it sustains her life. She relies on the high- quality, affordable care at HealthPoint to help keep her blood pressure under control. In my years working in community

health, I have never met a patient who does not want to be a productive member of the community. No one wants to be dependent. I took an oath to prevent harm, and I believe our state elected officials should do the same. I ask you to join me in urging our legislators to give voters a chance to save these programs. I believe voters will choose to raise revenue to save lives and maintain our healthy communities.

Dr. Kelly Barbour is the lead provider at Renton Healthpoint Community Health Center.

In addition to these counseling efforts, providing access to capital for small businesses in underserved areas is at the top of SBA’s agenda.

COMMENTARY

RENTON

The U. S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is committed to providing access and opportunity to Americans who are – or who want to become – small business owners. For a variety of reasons, some communities are underserved when it comes to getting the tools they need to grow a business and create jobs. We want to change that. Our resource partners include Small Business Development Centers including one in Renton at Renton Technical College that provides training and business counseling for little or no cost. This includes the basics of starting a business and understanding more about topics like finances, marketing, production and management. We also have Women’s Business Centers, in Seattle, Mukil-

munity-based, mission-focused lenders who have a high-touch approach. This includes Community Development Financial Institutions, SBA’s Certified Development Companies, microlenders, and others who keep at least 60 percent of their portfolios in underserved markets. Community Advantage will let these organizations make loans of $250,000 or less, and they can use streamlined paperwork to get the deal done quickly. Beyond these capital and counseling focused programs, we also help small businesses get linked to the world’s largest customer – the U.S. Government. Working closely with other federal agencies, we set aside nearly one-fourth of all federal purchase contracts for small businesses, totaling nearly

$100 billion annually. This includes specific efforts targeted at service-disabled veteran-owned business, firms in historically underutilized business areas (HUBZones), minority and disadvantaged firms and women-owned businesses. SBA will continue to find new ways to put more tools in the hands of our job creators, including those in underserved communities. If you are a small business in an underserved community, or know of someone who could take advantage of our programs, check out our website at: www.sba.gov.

Calvin W. Goings is regional administrator for the U.S. Small Business Administration.

Overcrowding plagues middle schools [ LEVY from page 1]

Gabriel White, Antonio and James Beckwith tear into their gifts. TRACEY COMPTON, Renton Reporter

Communities In Schools, Fire Dept. partner for gifts [ FIREFIGHTERS from page 1] Hollcraft said it was a nice feeling to help others in this way. “We want to go out of our way to give back to people that appreciate it,� he said. “And Linda certainly did, which made it really close and personal.� Shawn Mendenhall is a captain with the Renton Fire and Emergency Services Department. He was driving the antique fire engine for Santa and acted as a helper. “We’ve done a version of (the program) for as long as I can remember, 25 years,� he said. “But, a real organized version started last year with Brad (Santa) and I and our Benevolent association picking one family from each station through Communities in Schools.� Last year was the first year the firefighters decided to have Santa deliver the gifts on the back of an antique fire engine. Mendenhall said that he and Brad Gould had such a great time they pledge to dress up and participate until they retire. Gould remembers last year encountering a child with tears in their eyes. “They didn’t have anything in the house except a table and chairs and a broken down couch and no presents or gifts or anything,� he said. “So, that makes it pretty fun,� said Gould of delivering a sack full of presents.

computer training, software licenses, computers and hardware. It’s called the Technology Levy and it is part of the district’s longterm technology plan. On top of this, the district is asking for approval of its Building for a Lifetime of Learning School Building Improvement Bond, which would raise $97 million to provide a new middle school at the current Renton Academy site among other projects. The academy would be moved to a different location and a new 800-student middle school would be built in its place. “We need to create something that eliminates the overcrowding at our middle schools,� said Matheson. Currently, McKnight Middle School is the largest in the district with about 1,400 students. A new middle school will alleviate overcrowding at McKnight, said Matheson, and allow the district to move some families around rebalancing the district. It will take an estimated year and half to plan and build a new middle school. The bond would also cover renovation of the pool at Lindbergh High School and improvements, upgrades and modernization of other schools. The district gets 58

CHARLES CORTES, Renton Reporter percent of their funds from state allocation based on the number of students in the district. About 11 percent of the budget is federal funds tied to certain programs; 28 percent of the budget is local money from taxpayers. The remaining 3 percent is generated by rental facility fees in the district. The last time the maintenance and operations levy was on the ballot was 2008 and the current levy expires in 2012. The district doesn’t set aside money in its budget to construct new buildings and so has to ask for voter support to build

and make renovations. The Renton Academy site was chosen because the land is owned by the district and it is big enough to accommodate the rightsized middle school. Right now, the district has begun community presentations, starting with reaching out to groups like Renton Rotary, Kiwanis and the Soroptimists. Visits to neighborhood association meetings, City Council meetings and other community presentations are planned after November. If the maintenance and operations levy does not

If the bond measure is not approved, the district will not be able to build the new middle school or make renovation and construction improvements. School building maintenance is included in the general operating budget, but funding for essential large-scale building improvements is not funded by the state.

Holiday meals can be tricky for diabetics BY TRACEY COMPTON tcompton@rentonreporter.com

Navigating holiday meals is tricky for anyone, but the potential for harm can increase for diabetics if care is not considered when planning a meal experts warn. The biggest concern comes from the restrictions on food intake and too many food choices, Anna Betancourt says. She is a wellness dietitian at McChord Air Force Base Health and Wellness Center. Added to that concern is the idea that people with diabetes will fear they won’t be able to follow their diet and the pressure they might encounter from family and friends to eat everything that is offered, she said. “With Type 1 diabetes the concern would be the need to maintain glucose control and more vigilance with insulin administration,� Betancourt said. “The meals have to be

more closely monitored in order to adjust insulin needs.� Type 1 diabetes is characterized by the body’s inability to produce insulin and was formerly known as juvenile diabetes. With Type 1 diabetes the concern to maintain glucose control is even more challenging for children and young adults. Type 1 is related to insulin needs and food intake, the focus is on glucose levels and supplying adequate insulin for the meals, Betancourt said. “With Type 2, there is more emphasis on weight management,� she said. “The loss of weight, which will improve the glucose levels, is compromised and they fear regaining weight. Also, paying closer attention to glucose levels pre meals, and remembering to keep your medication schedule. Diabetes doesn’t go on holiday.� It didn’t go on holiday for James Nolan one Thanksgiving after he was mistakenly

Enough toys, even with extra need BY TRACEY COMPTON tcompton@rentonreporter.com

The Renton Salvation Army and parents in the community received a “blessing� this week and the charitable organization didn’t even have to ask. That was the case at the annual

toy giveaway at the site of the former LA Fitness facilities in Renton on Monday. This year even with increased need in the community, the Salvation Army had enough donated toys for the children on their lists that they didn’t have to ask for additional support.

“There is greater need,� said Capt. Chris Aird of the Renton Salvation Army. “We’re seeing a lot more families this year than we did last year. We have about 2,100 children (to) about 2,500 children that we’re helping, which is a little bit of an increase from last year.�

diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. Type 2 is characterized by a resistance to insulin. The majority of people diagnosed with diabetes have this form. In Nolan’s case he was actually Type 1 and didn’t know it. He was taking pills for the disease instead of shots of insulin at the time. “And I was pretty sick, but I was kind of in denial,� Nolan said. “Ate what I wanted on Thanksgiving day, took my two pills a day and didn’t think about it.� Nolan ended up in the hospital for eight days, three days of which he spent in a diabetic coma in the intensive care unit. Based on his personal experience, Nolan said that it doesn’t have to be that extreme for something to be wrong. “Some people, they may not feel quite right or they may not feel great,� he said. “But they don’t really see it necessarily as diabetes; they may not even be able to put The Salvation Army, with what was donated, even anticipated being able to accommodate the few families that signed up after the toy giveaway deadline. “It all came through,� said Aird. “We worked out, from the first time with us being here, we started talking with Hasbro and other companies and the need was just met.� Aird and his wife Lisa took over as captains of the Salvation Army this year. Hasbro and Wizards of the Coast were major contributors donating more than 8,700 toys and games. Donations were also increased by private donors and other local businesses. “I think it’s a blessing,� said Nadia Midrgan, a parent

their finger on it.� For him, Nolan feels pretty lousy when his blood sugar gets to a certain point. “So, I always try and keep in mind that I really don’t want to feel like that,� he said. Nolan, now as a diagnosed Type I diabetic, relies on an insulin pump to regulate his blood sugar levels. He also uses Valley Medical Center’s education services for diabetes and an endocrinologist at their Southlake Clinic. Betancourt advises the following for surviving the holidays for people with diabetes: Make smart choices and concentrate on the family, friends, socializing, fun stories and don’t stress too much about the diet restrictions. Make time to walk especially after having a meal. Consider colorful choices of fruits and vegetables. When dining out, research menus before you arrive and know what you will eat. Scan buffet tables first for healthier choices. Choose less creamy sauces and fried products to avoid added calories. Use smaller plates and savor the flavors and textures. Small amounts of sweets are OK as long as you don’t overindulge.

picking up toys for her two boys on Monday. Midrgan has relied on the Salvation Army a couple of years because of what she can’t do with her own finances. “I think it’s a great idea for - especially this helps a lot of people who don’t have a high income for families. It’s a great gift for them.� First time participant in the toy giveaway, Denise Haggett, found out about the services from a friend. “It’s beautiful, honestly my kids were not getting toys this year,� Haggett said. She has a boy and a girl and called the efforts “pretty amazing that people have good hearts.� Denise Daniels has been

a volunteer for the toy giveaway for the past five years. She works as a family liaison for the Renton School District and refers a lot of her families to the program. There were about 70 to 100 volunteers helping parents pick out gifts and selecting food baskets on Monday afternoon and scheduled all day Tuesday. “It’s just really awesome; it feels good to be able to help,� Daniels said. She called the amount of private and corporate giving “amazing.� “I enjoy it,� Daniels said. “I encourage everybody that I know to come down and support and volunteer because it feels good to give back and help.�

A person can also indicate whether they want artificial life support to prolong life after the point of natural death by signing a Health Care Directive.

Israeli cookies for a happy Hanukkah This recipe features the rich, sweet decadence of a Snowy Chocolate Cookies recipe as shared by Liat Shklarski in celebration of Hanukkah. The Jewish holiday began Dec. 20 and continues for seven days. Shklarski is a child and family therapist for Sound Mental Health in Tukwila and came to the United States from her homeland of Israel three years ago. Baking is her passion and

she only uses recipes from Israeli cookbooks. She adapted this cookie recipe from the book called, “Sweet Secrets,� by Karin Goren. Baking these cookies is a tradition Shklarski started with her father, from whom she gets her baking skills, she said. “So, I try even though I’m away from my family, I keep doing the things that I remember from home,� Shklarski said. She has noticed since moving to the U.S. that a lot of Jewish people here buy presents for each other for Hanukkah. “In Israel we are not exchanging presents during Hanukkah,� Shklarski said. “I think that in the U.S., Jewish people want to get some of the Christmas miracle and use Hanukkah for that.� She might start that custom with her infant daughter and husband once the child gets older, she said. At Sound Mental Health, Shklarski has as her boss describes “probably the cutest caseload.� She works with young children and families on how to deal with stress and post-traumatic stress disorder. She facilitates an art-therapy program called “Chill and Spill� for her young clients. “It’s art with heart, so it’s really good for our kids who don’t know how to express their feelings,� said Dennis Marceron, program manager of child and family services for Tukwila

Keum leads Eagles to a hot start BY ADAM MCFADDEN

amcfadden@rentonreporter.com

GIRLS BASKETBALL ROUNDUP Tyee's Arinesha Smith scored 32 points, but it wasn't enough as Lindbergh beat the Totems 53-46 Dec. 16. The Eagles (4-2, 3-1) led by three heading into the fourth quarter, then held on for the win. Emily Graver led Lindbergh with 22 points. Christina Wiley added nine. The Hazen girls basketball team topped Highline 56-43 Dec. 16. The Highlanders (3-2, 2-2) got 21 points from Airashay Rogers. Cecillee Fernandez scored 14 and Tyra Markey added 11.

With one of the Seamount’s best players and plenty of depth, firstyear Lindbergh boys basketball coach Robert Graham is confident and ready to roll. “We’re not going to lose to many basketball games,” Graham said. “The main thing is that these are good kids, that’s why I really think this team is going to go a long ways.” It all starts with senior guard SEASON Jimmy Keum. Keum is second in the Seamount in scoring this year, at 19.0 points per game. He also finished second last year, at 20.6, and proved to be nearly unstoppable at times. He scored 49 points in the Eagles’ final playoff game last year, when Lindbergh lost to Port Angeles in double overtime one game short of state. And it’s not just about scoring with Keum, he leads the league in steals (4.3 per game) and assists (4.4) this year. He’s also leading Lindbergh with 7.7 rebounds per game. Beyond Keum, junior forward Colin Malone figures to play a big role. Malone is second on the team with 10.6 points and 5.7 rebounds

Senior forward Casey Huppe is averaging 8.1 points and 4.7 rebounds per game. Senior forward Herman Clark is chipping in 7.1 points and 5.6 rebounds. Sophomore guard Nate Cunningham and senior center Mario Garcia will also play key roles. Graham, who has coached at Highline and Renton, is confident in his talent, his biggest push will be getting everyone to play aggressive and hard all the time. “We have to be a little hungrier,” he said. “I want my kids to play as hard as they can all the time.” Graham especially wants that

attitude to manifest itself on the defensive end. “I think that bothers teams and puts them in a situation they don’t want to be in,” he said. Lindbergh has already put itself in a favorable position this year with a 6-1 overall (3-1 league) start that has it in second place in the Seamount. The Eagles avoided a slow start like last season, when they went 0-4, and got hot late in the year. Lindbergh takes on Kentridge Dec. 30, Bear Creek Jan. 3, then gets back to league play against Kennedy Catholic Jan. 4.

Boot camp working to make Renton healthier BY ADAM MCFADDEN

Renton Results Boot camp

amcfadden@rentonreporter.com

The one thing that the Renton Results Boot Camp isn’t: boring. Fitness expert Luka Hocevar makes sure of that. Hocevar runs the boot camp at Vigor Ground Fitness and Performance, located at 1222 Bronson Way North in Renton. “It’s a pretty cool environment because you have pro athletes working alongside 55-year-old moms,” Hocevar said. “Nobody cares what anyone else’s ability level is, everyone is just trying to make it through this boot camp.” The gym offers semiprivate training in addition to the popular boot camp. Hocevar said the boot camp attracts people from 18 to 70 years old and from every level of fitness. And that’s the beauty of his system, is its versatility. “The fittest person in the world can do the hardest level and still get a great workout,” he said. “Or if they’re just starting off at Level 1, almost anyone can do it.” The typical boot camp starts slow rolling and self massage with foam rollers to get the muscles ready to even get warmed up. Then the group starts with dynamic warm-up drills, which are a combination of body weight exercises and

That keeps the boot camp sessions fresh and efficient. As part of Hocevar’s goal to change the lives of 10,000 Renton residents by 2015, Vigor Grounds decided to set up a weight loss contest earlier this fall. For every pound lost, the gym donated $2 to the Boys and Girls Club of Renton/ Skyway. That totaled 682.7 pounds and $1,365.40 over the eight-week contest.

From out-of-work carpenter to successful baker [ PIES from page 1] of spices. Without a doubt they are smooth, rich and sweet. A friend, who helped Tynes set up side contracting work in carpentry in the past, encouraged him to go forward with this business venture and helped him get started. “My mom would be surprised out of all her three sons that I’m the one to do something like this,� Tynes said. His mother never taught him how to bake specifically, but she taught him and his two brothers and two sisters how to cook. “But, I’ve been a carpenter for 30 years, I know how to follow the instructions,� he said. It took a little more than that because as Tynes puts it, “Old folks, they don’t measure stuff.� He was able to concoct his pie recipe also adhering to his mother’s recipe, using measurements his mother had given his wife 28 years ago. The recipe has Southern roots, as Tynes’ mother hails from Mississippi, but raised her children in San Jose, Calif. Tynes moved to Washington in the early 1980s and says that Renton is a good place to raise children. As for the pies, Renton seems to love them. “Oh yes, I sold out almost every Tuesday,� said Tynes of his experience at the Farmers Market in downtown Renton. He was also popular at the market at Valley Medical Center on Sundays and again at the annual Harvest Festival in the fall. It was at the Harvest Festival that he met Rex Hashimoto, director of the Renton Uwajimaya store. “He tasted one of my pies and a few days later he sent me an email asking if I could come down and meet some of the managers and also bring some samples,� Tynes said.

Richard Tynes, owner, creator and baker of Ms. Margie’s Sweet Potato Pies, stands in front of a refrigerated case at the Renton Uwajimaya store where his pies are sold. Tracey Compton, Renton Reporter Tynes met with the group and they asked him on the spot if he would like to be in all four of the Uwajimaya stores. “And they had a pretty good laugh at my expense because they could see on my face that I didn’t expect this to happen this soon,� he said. This Thanksgiving with Ms. Margie’s Sweet Potato Pies proved an eye-opener for Tynes as he made so many pies he lost count. He makes them in a local commercial kitchen with friends and family helping him. Customers were still calling him with orders when he was leaving his business for the day. Tynes directed them to Uwajimaya stores and they

sold out at the end of Thanksgiving Day, he said. Tynes was looking forward to retiring in a couple of years, but now says that’s probably not going to happen. “I’m enjoying this and I tell everybody, I wish I had of done it 20 years ago,� he said. Tynes is still working out the kinks of his business, says that he’s at the crawl stage now, but wants to see if they can walk and then run. Tynes just recently got a contract to have his pies sold in the Popeye’s restaurant off of Rainier Avenue in Renton at 105 S.W. Seventh St. “I think you’re going to be hearing a lot from Ms. Margie’s Sweet Potato Pies,� he said.

Businesses support Valley Cities A number of businesses, both local and national, have come together to support the efforts of Valley Cities Counseling and Consultation. Mark Lovell, marketing director for Washington’s Precision Collision Auto Body, has been working during the past year to find a repairable wheelchair accessible van for the counseling agency to use for its homeless veterans supportive housing program at Valley Cities Landing in

Auburn. Lovell was able to finally secure a van thanks to Geico Insurance who donated the vehicle. Allstate Insurance Roadside Services donated the towing services and PPG Industries donated all of the paint materials and replacement parts. Valley Cities will hold a NABC Recycled Rides Ride-Away-Day from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Jan. 19 at 2516 I Street Northeast in Auburn.

whelmed by their mortgage payments, she said. They are also worried about their utilities being shut off and providing nutritious food for their children. Milliren remembers encountering a 60-year-old mother who wasn’t quite retirement age but was laid off. The woman was forced to live with her son, who was also unemployed and near the end of his unemployment assistance. Milliren was able to give the son information about lowcost health insurance and refer him to utilities assistance. “Most people are really glad that there are these support systems that they can lean on,” she said. Among the college grads and about everyone else she meets without a job, Milliren said, there are definitely feelings of shame. United Way noticed there weren’t many volunteers doing public outreach offering benefits, said Courtney Noble, manager of Basic Need Programs at United Way of King County. They knew that there were thousands of people who were eligible for food stamps, for example, but they didn’t know who they were. The Bridge to Basics program is an attempt to send volunteers out cold to find people, she explained. The program has now hit a tipping point in the number of agencies that are aware of their services. This has made

Volunteer registration for the next season of the Bridge to Basics program is now open and applications and information are available at www.unitedwayofkingcounty.org/ bridgetobasics.

it very easy to recruit volunteers, Noble said. There are now more people ready and willing to help the program as volunteers than they have volunteer positions to fill. Recently they had 150 people who applied to volunteer

when they had only 50 spots to fill. Volunteers receive a three- to four-hour training session and do outreach in food banks, libraries, community centers and Work Source sites. Some of them have a social work background or are retired professionals. The program currently needs volunteers who speak Spanish, Chinese or Russian. Milliren is bilingual in Spanish and English and has been working in the Bridge to Basics program since last September. “I love people and I love that in this kind of work we have the opportunity to witness human strength and perseverance in really tough times,” she said. Despite her clients’ unfortunate circumstances and the climate in which she works, Milliren is amazed by the fact that she has witnessed clients still make a point to wish each other happy holidays.

Both pools could potentially benefit from school bond [ POOL from page 4] budget cuts. “If we’re raising money, we’re doing it to backfill some of these programs like kindergarten,” Matheson said. Last year, all-day kindergarten was cut from all but the low-income schools in the district. This year even those schools’ all-day kindergarten programs are on the chopping block and proposed to be cut. “If we’re asking parents to fund all-day kindergarten, then asking them to foot the bill for the pools should be a realistic ask,” Matheson said. The task for community groups like Renton Pools Community is tricky. They must tap new and old sources of funds for the

pools without getting in the way of others efforts to raise money for district educational programs. “Keep in mind we as a community have higher priorities in the schooltype of fund-raising,” said Chris Carlson, organizer for Renton Pools Community. “Friends of Renton Schools is raising money just to cover the main school objectives and we certainly don’t want to compete with those efforts of trying to tap major donors.” To further its efforts, Carlson’s group plans to educate the community about the February bond measure and also sell advertising banners at about $1,500 each. “Well, I think our first focus has to be the bond,” Carlson said. “Because without passing the bond, the physical plant here at Lindbergh, which is quite aging, there’s the potential that something serious could happen and the money would not be there.”
