King County and the City of Seattle have been awarded more than $21.8 million in federal funding for homeless assistance in 2012-13. King County Executive Dow Constantine and Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn announced the funding Dec. 20, after the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development had announced over $1.5 billion being distributed nationwide. In South King County, the Multi-Service Center (MSC) received $26,724 for its Homeless Family Transitional Housing program. That program, according to the MSC, is for people who are “ready and willing to make changes in their lives to become more selfsufficient.” Those who qualify can live in the housing for up to two years, but must continue to work at moving forward while living in the housing. “Ending the cycle of homelessness for our most vulnerable residents requires many partnerships, and the renewal of this [ more HOMELESS, page 12 ]

Peace Corps: Toughest job this Decatur grad ever loved BY ANDY HOBBS editor@federalwaymirror.com

One year into her Peace Corps service, Christine Duffy has grown to appreciate Thailand’s people and culture. The experience has eliminated misconceptions she had about the nation. For one thing, they live simply. They’re not all starving or living on dirt floors. It’s not uncommon to find a resident in a tin house who happens to be browsing the Internet with an iPad — while down the road, the local mayor lives in a lavish mansion. While searching for a service-oriented career path, Duffy found the Peace Corps — and eventually, the Peace Corps found her. It took a lengthy application process, but Duffy soon found herself en route to Thailand. After

Gang survey for S. King County FROM STAFF REPORTS

The Suburban King County Coordinating Council on Gangs is conducting a public survey to identify the nature and scope of gang activity and youth violence in King County’s suburban communities. The council has joined the Center for Children and Youth Justice and high-level decision makers from South and East King County to create a coordinated and collaborative response to gang violence. The goal is to create a comprehensive plan that brings together efforts in prevention, intervention, suppression and re-entry.

An online version of the survey is available at www. surveymonkey.com/s/KCGang.

The City of Federal Way reminded residents there are a number of options available to help dispose of all the extra mess that comes in the wake of the year’s biggest holiday. With big electronics, there always seems to be large, oddly shaped pieces of styrofoam that are impossible to stuff into a garbage or recycling can. The city offers a free drop-off location at City Hall from Dec. 26 to Jan. 13. The city notes that only clean white Styrofoam blocks are accepted for recycling — no cups, foam sheeting or other plastics. Styrofoam is also available for recycling year round at V&G Styro Recycle, located at 800 43rd St. in Renton. For more information, visit www.styrorecycle.com or call (253) 838-9555. Properly disposing of that authentic Christmas tree can be an issue as well. The city offers free pickup of Christmas trees on regular collection days for the weeks of Dec. 26-30 and Jan. 2-6. The city notes that all ornaments and lights need to be removed, and if a tree is over 6 feet tall, it should be cut in half. Decorated or flocked trees cannot be composted and will be charged as garbage, according to the city. That disheveled wrapping paper will be collected on regular recycling collection days by the city at no additional charge. If residents experience overflow because of wrapping paper, they can place the discarded pare in cardboard boxes, paper bags or durable containers labeled “recycling.� Food scraps and foodsoiled paper can be placed in curbside yard waste containers for compost collection.

Cops arrest woman for faked pinching 4VTQFDUQMFBET OPUHVJMUZJOGBUBM 1PMJDF#MPUUFS Redondo shooting CRIME

'30.45"''3&10354

A 29-year-old Des Moines man pleaded not guilty last Thursday in connection with the Nov. 5 shooting death of Jayme Thomas, 19, in the Redondo area of Des Moines. Johnny Rourn pleaded not guilty in King County Superior Court in Kent to a charge of second-degree murder, according to the King County Prosecuting Attorneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office. He also pleaded not guilty to a charge of second-degree assault for reportedly wounding a 24-year-old man during the shooting. Rourn is scheduled to return to court Jan. 31 when a trial date could be set or attorneys could ask for more time to prepare the case. He remains in the county jail at the Norm Maleng Regional Justice Center in Kent with bail set at $1 million. Thomas died after being shot early in the morning

Nov. 5 in the backseat of a vehicle in the 800 block of Redondo Way South. Witnesses reported that an argument and name calling occurred between two separate groups before the shooting. Two unidentified men started passing a gun around, then fired shots into a vehicle where Thomas sat, according to police. Rourn allegedly was upset about being called a name by friends of Thomas. An autopsy report showed Thomas was shot twice in the back and once in the arm, according to charging papers. Des Moines Police, with the assistance of Valley SWAT, arrested Rourn for investigation of homicide and assault Dec. 7 at his residence without incident. Thomas was a 2011 graduate of Mount Rainier High School. She was studying at Highline Community College to become a nurse.

Following is a sample from the Federal Way police log: t-ZJOHNBOJO%7DBMM At 11:31 p.m. Dec. 18 in the 33000 block of 24th Avenue SW, police responded to a domestic disturbance call. According to the police report, the woman said the man had bent her finger back enough to cause her pain. The man said the woman had severely pinched him, and corroborated that claim by showing the skin where the pinch was said to have happened. Police arrested the woman because of the visible sign of injury on the man, but the police report notes that the man later admitted to police he had lied about the woman pinching him. t(JWFNFXIBUZPVIBWF At

2:17 a.m. Dec. 17 in the 31000 block of Pacific Highway South, a man was approached by another man. According to the police report, the second man told the first to â&#x20AC;&#x153;give me what you have,â&#x20AC;? and began pulling a metallic-looking object out of a pocket. The first man quickly fled, and the second man was able to be located and was arrested by police. t"OHSZDPVTJO At 2:03 a.m. Dec. 17 in the 1800 block of South 281st Place, a woman and her fiance were visiting with her cousin. According to the police report, the three got into an argument. At some point, the woman and her fiance ended up outside of the cousinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s residence, and the cousin refused to let them back in. The police gave the woman and her fiance a ride home. t*EFOUJUZUIFGU At 9:24 a.m. Dec. 17 in the 800 block of SW 355th Court, a woman contacted police regarding a number of credit

cards she received in the mail. According to the police report, the credit cards were in the womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name, but she had never signed up for them. She was able to determine that someone had used her name over the Internet to sign up for the cards. The womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son had also had a bank contact him about a line of credit he had applied for, and again, that was something the son had never applied for either. t5PVHIMPWF At 9:29 a.m. Dec. 17 in the 33000 block of 8th Avenue South, a manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brother and mother brought him to Federal Way police headquarters because of his problems with a heroin addiction. According to the police report, the police approached the man and asked if he had any drugs on him, which he did. The man produced a burnt spoon, needles and an unspecified amount of heroin, and turned it over to the police. t/PSFDPSEPGNBOTTUPMFO

Good news about Bally Fitness closure I would like to respond to Ken Harris’ letter “Boo to Bally closure.” I have been a member of the Bally Total Fitness for over 30 years and went to the club on 1st Avenue South.

The 2011 public service awards It’s that time of year again when we bestow on our leaders, somewhat tongue in cheek, awards for their public service. The “understatement” award goes to a local city council member who, during a discussion on downtown economic development, noting that the new manager of The Commons Mall was from Las Vegas, commented “I think their community model is a little different then ours.” The “Key Vote” award goes to new city council members Susan Honda and Bob Celski, who may emerge as important players on the city council if alliances develop as expected. Speaking of the new council, it is going to look a lot different come January than it did this year. Mayor Skip Priest gets the “who are those guys” award and the “and which way did they go?” award, as new council members replace two of his longtime allies — and may have different ideas and want to go different directions than currently planned. Democratic State Rep. Mark Miloscia gets the “lucky break” award, as he finally gets a chance to run for his dream job as State Auditor with Brian Sonntag’s retirement. The “I’m really a moderate” award goes to Linda Kochmar. The Republican candidate for the Legislature, who sometimes sounds pretty conservative, has to convince independents and middle-of-the-road voters from both parties that she is politically moderate if this city councilwoman is going to have a chance of winning Miloscia’s vacated seat. If she can’t, expected candidate Tony Moore will take the conservatives, and the Democratic candidate will keep the party faithful in line.

And both will squeeze Kochmar. Moore, the school board president, could have been be a candidate for “I’m really a moderate” award, but he probably isn’t. And he can’t afford to look like one, anyway, without alienating his conservative base. If he makes it past the primary, then he will need to start looking like a moderate. Maybe we’ll consider him for next year’s award. The same goes for Republican gubernatorial candidate Rob McKenna, who has to look like a moderate in King and Pierce counties and look like a conservative every place else. It has been about 30 years since a Republican was governor, and he has been mistakefree. McKenna gets the “right time, right place” award. The “who’s that?” award goes to Jay Inslee, the likely Democratic candidate for governor. His name identification appears somewhat limited in South King County. The award for “smart move” goes to King County Council member Jane Hague for undercutting her opponent’s position on the tab fee increase, leading to her re-election. But she shares the award with Federal Way Public Schools Superintendent Rob Neu, who appointed school board candidate Liz Drake as principal at Thomas Jefferson High School. Drake gets to fix the problems at TJ, and Danny Peterson gets the school board seat. The “what will I do next” award goes to Federal Way City Council member Jim Ferrell, who was just re-elected to his third term on the council, but chose to pass on running for the Legislature. Since he has been an advocate [ more ROEGNER page 5 ] Bob Roegner

Many people are aware that Dec. 1 is World AIDS Day each year. But how many of you know that Nov. 20 is the annual Transgender Day of Remembrance? Transgender Day of Remembrance began with a candlelight vigil in 1999, after the murder of Rita Hester, who was killed because of her gender identity. The day continues to remember, honor and raise awareness about people we have lost due to anti-transgender bias, prejudice or hatred. Confused? Here’s some basic information. Biological sex refers to the chromosomes, hormones and genitalia with which we are born. For most people, the sex chromosomes are XX or XY. While there are variations, that’s a different article. People with XX chromosomes generally have female genitalia. Those who are XY generally have male genitalia. Gender is about being or feeling male or female. Most people are “cisgender” because they feel and experience that they are the same gender as the genitalia they have. For example: a person with female body parts feels like a girl or woman and experiences herself as a girl or woman. Some people feel and experience strongly that they are a different gender from the body parts they have. We call that being transgender. Dutch research has shown that one difference between transgender and cisgender people is their brains. That is, a person with male chromosomes, and male genitalia, who feels like a woman, actually has female brain characteristics (and vice versa). This is different from a man who chooses to be a nurse, or a woman who chooses to be a firefighter. Gender roles are the roles our society expects us to play and conform to because of the body parts we have. What labels or judgments we have about people who color outside of these lines (tough women or effeminate men, for example) have to do with what roles we have been taught to expect each gender to fulfill. In our culture, we limit people to one of two gender assignments, male or female. However, some cultures have three, four or even five gender assignations (some Indonesian cultures, for example). Sexual orientation has to do with whom we are attracted, and is completely separate from our gender identity. Still confused? You’re not alone. There are many people who do not understand transgender people, or anyone who falls outside of their own definition of male or female. But these people do exist, and they deserve respect and our willingness to try to understand. A friend of mine who navigates this on a daily basis gets questions from people struggling with their gender identity. One question he got earlier this year was “Can trans people pray?” [ more JOHNSON page 5 ]

at the Bally club desk saying there was a transition going on as LA Fitness took over. No mention was ever made that they intended to close the club, and I did not find out about it until I read it in The Mirror. Later I received letters from both Bally and LA Fitness, but neither told us what we wanted to know — namely, whether LA

Fitness was going to honor the terms of our Bally club memberships. Apparently, Ken Harris got the impression that they were not and that is why he wrote his letter. I was fortunate because my membership expired just before the sale and I renewed for three years — but the $64,000 question was, what happens when my membership expires in November 2014?

When I attended the LA Fitness club on Enchanted Parkway South, I spoke to a former Bally club member who told me that a class action lawsuit was filed against both Bally and LA Fitness in Philadelphia to force LA Fitness to honor the contracts that members had with Bally and that LA Fitness finally agreed and the lawsuit was dropped.

I called LA Fitness and spoke to a representative who knew nothing about the lawsuit, but did affirm that LA Fitness would continue to allow members to renew per the terms of their Bally membership agreement. The other good news is that LA Fitness clubs are a major upgrade from the Bally clubs. As everyone probably knows, Bally had major financial problems and their clubs were old, run-down and poorly maintained. They also made bad [ more LETTERS page 5 ]

tion system, we can overcome the mediocrity that presently shackles our students and teachers. The Office of the Superintendent for Public Instruction (OSPI) has already established a fourphase implementation timeline for the Common Core Standards, which begins with creating greater awareness and understanding of the tasks that lie ahead. Under the OSPI timeline, the assessments phase of implementation won’t be piloted until 2013, with the intent

of launching those assessment standards in 2014. FWPS is jumping the gun with ineffective implementation. The introduction of Power Standards into FWPS this year has caused much confusion, consternation and chaos. The transition to standardized education is being poorly implemented within FWPS leading to numerous issues with grading, limited teacher buy-in and a lack [ more YOUR TURN page 6 ]

and cultural barriers have humbled her. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned to listen a lot more,â&#x20AC;? she said, noting that her community also speaks Lao. Duffy, 26, grew up in Federal Way. She graduated from Decatur High School in 2004, and eventually earned a degree in international business and finance from Gonzaga University. She credits her high school cheerleading coach for instilling a good work ethic, and credits a past job at Poverty Bay Coffee for introducing her to concepts like sustainable farming. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wanted to do some kind of global service,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peace Corps was a great fit for me.â&#x20AC;? Duffyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main projects in her Thai community have involved recycling and waste management. The country embraces recycling, and even has a saying that goes with it: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Waste is gold.â&#x20AC;? However, Duffy is promoting more recycling. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also working on a project to clean up a forest that serves as a de facto dumping ground for this community, which burns much of its trash. She is adjusting to life in the Thai village. She recycles and composts, and rides a bike everywhere. She also tries to be a good role model for Americans. Most residents of Thailand have formed impressions of Americans based on Hollywood or an encounter with wanton tourists in Bangkok â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the capital city that seems worlds away from Duffyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rural village.

Most of these Thai villagers are rice farmers (the nation is the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top rice exporter). Fortunately, Duffy said, the catastrophic flooding of 2011 did not directly affect her community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thai people love to laugh and have a good time,â&#x20AC;? she said, noting their positive outlook as the 2011 flooding devastated much of the country. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They had so much to teach me.â&#x20AC;? Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s made a cultural impression on the villagers, showing them U.S. traditions like Halloween and Thanksgiving. Part of her schedule includes teaching English at a Thai high school, while brushing up on Thai skills weekly with a â&#x20AC;&#x153;host mom.â&#x20AC;? Her small office in the village has wireless Internet, allowing Duffy to communicate with friends and family in the U.S. Thanks to Skype, video chats with her parents can help ease homesickness. When she returns to Thailand in January, Duffy will attempt to build a bio-gas tank that uses dung from water buffaloes as fuel to cook her food. The mayor of her Thai community is interested in one of these contraptions for his house. Also, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll return to her pet cat Baksida, a name that translates to â&#x20AC;&#x153;foreigner.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a niche for everyone in the world. I want to have a job that goes into my life,â&#x20AC;? she said, recalling the impact of her experience. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These people are going to be in my life for the rest of my life.â&#x20AC;? The Seattle-Tacoma-Bellevue metropolitan area ranks No. 7 in the country for producing Peace Corps volunteers with 196 residents currently serving.

being implemented within this school district. The Common Core Standards are based upon international benchmarks and high level, data-driven research. Hundreds of millions of dollars have been spent on continued development of these learning and assessment standards. The question we should be collectively asking ourselves is this: â&#x20AC;&#x153;If Common Core will become law in 2014, then why are we not transitioning into those standards? Why are we heading down a path that creates so much suffering, as opposed to taking the path advocated by many of the leading education experts in the nation?â&#x20AC;? Given the challenges we have faced with Power Standards implementation, are we doomed to repeat the turmoil with the mandated state changes? The suffering of students and teachers that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re presently witnessing is the result of the proper standards not being correctly implemented. The frustration expressed by parents,

teachers and students at successive school board meetings shows that we need new modes for engagement. We need a thoughtful transition process with the active participation of all stakeholders. We need to define a clear vision for our education system to ensure that the transition protects students and engages teachers and parents. Parents need to have a coherent voice to bring a co-equal perspective to the future of FWPS. The Federal Way Parents Organization is being formed to provide a powerful voice, an opportunity to share experience and to develop positive, creative input. Together we can bring FWPS to new heights of performance through effective partnership among all stakeholders.

Everybody knows that the â&#x20AC;&#x153;amateurâ&#x20AC;? sport of college football makes a lot of money for a lot of people. To fully understand the corporate greed of college football, just take a look at the names of the 35 bowl games that are currently being contested. Every single one of them has a corporate sponsor in its name. Even the self-described â&#x20AC;&#x153;Granddaddy of Them All,â&#x20AC;? the Rose Bowl, has a sponsor â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Rose Bowl Game presented by Vizio.

38-year-old Wenatchee firefighter played a key role in leading the Gator program to its first-ever state tourney BY CASEY OLSON sports@fedwaymirror.com

During his high school days, Garet Rasmussen was known as a basketball player. The 1992 Decatur High School graduate ranks as the 20th all-time scorer for the basketball-rich Gators after averaging 10 points as a junior and 11.2 during his senior season. Rasmussen played a huge role in earning Decatur the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first-ever berth into the state basketball tournament in 1992. But basketball had little to do with Rasmussenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s post-Decatur days. Like most of us, the high school glory days were just that â&#x20AC;&#x201D; glory days. They are fun to reminisce

about over a beer during the rare occasions when old friends get together. But those glory days really have no bearing on life after high school. A â&#x20AC;&#x153;pretty goodâ&#x20AC;? high school basketball career isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to change your newbornâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s diaper, pay the mortgage or deal with all the other stuff that arises in the real world. Rasmussenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s post-graduation centered around being a firefighter and taking care of his young family. But that all came to an end during the summer. The 38-year-old collapsed inside his Wenatchee home after responding to an emergency call about a car crash. The Chelan County coroner concluded that Rasmussen died from hypertension and arteriosclerotic cardiovascular disease. Rasmussen was the command duty officer for Chelan County Fire District One and Douglas County Fire District Two in Central Washington.

college sports, the football postseason isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t run by the governing body. Instead, the NCAA allows these private corporations to start their own bowl games, invite teams to play and to come up with those hokey names. The biggest driving force to keep the current bowl system intact actually

comes from ESPN. The cable network currently has the rights to 33 of the 35 postseason games and even owns seven of the bowls. ESPN also spends $125 million a year just to televise the five Bowl Championship Series (BCS) games. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our No. 1 goal is to find a multi-year relationship with a sponsor.

off the beginning of the officially named Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl. Finally, they just dropped the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peachâ&#x20AC;? and the rest is history. Obviously, money talks and you-know-what walks. Bowl game sponsorship is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to money funneling into college football. It just isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t funneling to the ones playing the game. While coaches and conferences are making millions, the ones actually bringing fans into the stadium â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the athletes â&#x20AC;&#x201D; are left with their scholarships and nothing else. According to an article at Forbes.com, the revenue of the powerhouse college football teams reaches into the tens of millions of dollars a year. University of Texas generated $93 million in pure revenue in 2010, including $36 million in ticket sales alone. Alabama and Auburn are

tied at second by generating $76 million, followed by Georgia ($75 million), Penn State ($73 million) and Florida ($73 million). Even lower-level schools like the University of Miami-Ohio and Northern Illinois, both generate $23 million a year. The money is mostly due to television contracts inked by certain conferences. In March, FOX and the Big 12 revealed a new 13-year cable deal worth a reported $90 million annually, or $1.17 billion over the length of the agreement. Then in May, the Pac-12, which includes Washington and Washington State, agreed to terms with both ESPN and FOX to establish the richest media rights deal in college sports. The contract goes into effect next season and is worth $225 million per year for 12 years. Remember, college football is big business.

Tracking the Grads: College basketball Freshman Talia Walton saw her first action of the season for the University of Washington womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball team on Dec. 18 during a win over Houston. Walton had knee surgery in October. Walton played five minutes and tallied two points for the 8-2 Huskies. Walton was one of the top recruits for Washingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2011 class. The 6-foot-2 forward was voted the Associated Press Class 4A Washington Prep Girls Basketball Player of the Year after leading the Eagles into the state title game as

a senior. Walton was also named the South Puget Sound Leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s South Division Most Valuable Player, Seattle Timesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Star Times AllArea, The News Tribuneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s All-Area Player of the Year and the Mirrorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s All-City Player of the Year. Walton led the Eagles to a perfect 16-0 record in the South Puget Sound League South Division and to the West Central/Southwest District championship, while averaging 17 points and close to 13 rebounds per game. It was the thirdstraight season that Federal Way has played at the Class 4A State Girls Basketball Tournament.

She also led the SPSL in rebounding during the regular season by grabbing 11.8 per game. Walton also led the league in blocked shots and was 10th in the league in steals (2.13 a game). She was a first-team, All-SPSL North selection for the third time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Talia has some tremendous upside,â&#x20AC;?

That material is hauled to a manhole designated by Lakehaven Utility, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dumped there, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a service we pay for. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been the condition since the school was built.â&#x20AC;? Leland continued. Lakehaven had put together a plan to serve 356th Street with a major force line sewer that would connect on the east side of Highway 99, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That plan has been in place, over the last three years, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve refined it. It came within one lot of Illahee, it was perfect,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To build our part of the system, which would be a four-inch force main to connect to the part that Lakehaven was buildingâ&#x20AC;Ś It would take the sewage down to the east side of Pacific Highway and connect it to their major force line. That was a perfect melding.â&#x20AC;? Leland said Lakehavenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan for this connection ran into a few snags. Lakehaven has been pursuing easements on properties to build the force main. The force main comes across undeveloped land, crosses wetlands, crosses native forests, and then crosses developed properties. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have not been able to put together all the elements they need,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Illahee Middle School is located at 36001 1st Ave. S. COURTESY OF FEDERAL WAY PUBLIC SCHOOLS

If the district were to try and take on the project itself, Leland said FWPS would end up right where Lakehaven is, fighting to get easements through all those properties, and that the $1 million set aside for the project would be quickly used up. Leland said the district is ready and geared to go. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re poised to do our part, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had Pyramid Engineers do our part, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had conversations with Lakehaven,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know what our part looks like, they know what their part looks like. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re financed. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where we are currently.â&#x20AC;?

federal funding for housing and services sustains a critical piece of the safety net for thousands in need across our region,â&#x20AC;? Constantine said. McGinn echoed these words. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These annual grants are essential as we work to help people rebuild their lives and find safe and stable housing,â&#x20AC;? McGinn said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The federal funds are especially important in our efforts to preserve basic human services in Seattle and throughout the region.â&#x20AC;?

the problem fixed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m throwing that at you out of the blue, but I was committed to bringing that up to you, only because of the number of leaks in the roof,â&#x20AC;? Moore said. Leland said he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t 100 percent sure of where Lake Grove was in the queue for projects. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I believe there are 68 projects from the $20 million,â&#x20AC;? Leland answered, referencing money set aside in recent years for construction and upkeep projects. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And where we are with the Lake Grove roofâ&#x20AC;ŚI wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to report to you tonight, because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not certain.â&#x20AC;? The districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s facilities service director told the board he would look into it, and email them in the near future. In a post meeting conversation, Leland said the Lake Grove roof project is in Phase 3, and is expected to be put out to bid in the spring or summer.

Parts of the funding will go toward â&#x20AC;&#x153;supportive housing for homeless adults with severe mental illness,â&#x20AC;? and also the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s data collection system for homeless statistics. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our efforts are making a difference in helping people to find and maintain stable housing,â&#x20AC;? said Bill Block, project director for the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Committee to End Homelessness. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This award shows that our federal partners value our programs and recognize our progress.â&#x20AC;?
