LIFE ON THE STREETS

‘It’s not easy,’ says Pops Valley Cities Counseling, other agencies helping the homeless with much-needed services. BY TRACEY COMPTON traceycompton@rentonreporter.com

“I have learned a lot through the strength and power of homeless folks.” Inbal Blitstein, mental health outreach specialist

Loren Sherman has been homeless for the last six years and in January he will be 55 years old. “It’s not easy,” he said of living on the streets of Renton. He actually calls a makeshift space, in an urban wooded area not far from downtown, home. Sherman has become so adept at living in the woods that he’s taught other homeless people how to manage that way. He’s known as “Pops” on the street. “Doesn’t mean I want to do it,” he said of his

living situation. But, Sherman doesn’t want to be restricted by the rules and regulations of living in a shelter or a group home. He is one of the many chronically homeless and mentally ill people living in the city. The last King County One Night Count, done earlier in 2011, found that there were 71 homeless people in selected areas of Renton. The 2010 count found almost 9,000 homeless people living on the streets, in emergency shelters, or transitional housing in the county at the time the count was taken. Officials warn that increased cuts to social services at all levels of government will have a huge impact on the homeless, low-income and mentally ill. In Renton, outreach efforts are trying to keep up with the need to provide services to the recently displaced and chronically homeless. [ more HOMELESS page 3 ]

The new strategic alliance between Valley Medical Center and UW Medicine now has its full slate of trustees, who will oversee the operations of Valley Medical and its clinics. The appointment of the final three trustees was announced Wednesday. They are two former commissioners for Public Hospital District No. 1, Don Jacobson and Gary Kohlwes, both of Renton, and Barbara Fletcher of Newcastle, a retired executive of the Weyerhaeuser Co. Jacobson retired at year’s end after 19 years on the hospital district board. Kohlwes served as a commissioner from 1995 to 2007; he lost his seat to current commissioner, Sue Bowman. The three will join Julia Patterson of Seatac, a member of the King County Council, and Bernadene Dochnahl of Renton as the five trustees who represent the district service area. Gary Kohlwes The five elected hospital district commissioners also sit on the 13-member board. “The three final appointees to the Valley Medical Center Board bring a great depth of knowledge and passion for improving the health of the community,” said Dr. Paul G. Ramsey, chief executive officer, UW Medicine, in a press release. Don Jacobson “All have served the south King County community through their volunteer efforts and we all look forward to having them join the newly configured Valley Medical Center board,” said Ramsey, who made the appointments. The initial appointments to the board were Lisa Jensen, like Dochnahl, a Harborview Medical Center trustee, Peter Evans, a Northwest Hospital trustee, and Johnese Spisso, a UW Medicine executive and Ramsey’s designee. Kohlwes is a longtime community leader in Renton, including serving as the superintendent of the Renton School District. Jacobson’s background is in construction; he has served on numerous Renton boards, including the School Board. Now retired, Fletcher worked in strategic and business planning for the Weyerhaeuser Company. Fletcher has held many volunteer positions, including director of the Seattle Aquarium Society.

What is Joint Tenancy? Joint tenancy is a form of ownership in which two or more persons own an asset jointly. Upon the death of one, the ownership of the asset is presumed to pass to the surviving joint owner(s) without probate. Sometimes joint tenancy is useful. But it may be inconsistent with the provisions of the Will and create uncertainty or conflict after death. In other cases, joint tenancy can disrupt a plan to minimize estate taxes. Protect your right to distribute your estate as you intend in a cost-effective manner. Consult an estate planning attorney.

Homeless services include meals, medical van Sherman finds comfort and support from Inbal Blitstein, a mental health outreach specialist with Valley Cities Counseling and Consultation. “We sit down and I can tell her anything I want,� Sherman said. “I don’t use that as a license to just run off at the mouth, though. I talk to her about the serious stuff that I can’t talk to anybody else about.� That involves discussions about his depression. He talks about his thoughts that he calls “jumbled� and about fears that keep him from being productive. The two met at a Renton Community Supper held at the Salvation Army downtown. The supper is one of the many places Blitstein meets her clients, including parks, libraries, shelters and even the woods. Blitstein can be seen all over Renton earnestly engaged with the city’s homeless and also mentally ill. She and Jesus Nacanaynay cover the King County region as mental health outreach specialists for Valley Cities through its Bridges Program. The program is free and open to all who are homeless and have menInbal Blitstein tal health issues. “I have learned a lot about the strength and power of homeless folks,� Blitstein said. “They’re very resourceful, resilient, creative, intelligent.� She’s been doing social work for 20 years and with the Bridges ProBob Viola gram since its inception two and a half years ago. Blitstein’s value system and spirituality motivates her to help her clients day after day, she said. She is impressed by the level of sharing and generosity she sees among homeless people. Blitstein finds that they support each other through an informal community. She’s also been impressed by the level of support from congregations and from King County voters who approved the Veterans and Human Services Levy, part of which helps individuals and families with housing and supportive services, for example. But, the challenge to reach homeless and mentally ill individuals is still tough. The mandate for Blitstein and Nacanaynay is to engage 200 unique individuals over the course of a year in the county. Both outreach specialists might have 20 to 40 clients that they’re working with at a time. “To measure success for us right now is

ARISE needs help feeding the homeless in January BY TRACEY COMPTON tcompton@rentonreporter.com

The homeless men’s feeding program, ARISE, hit a stumbling block early in its 2012 schedule. The group found itself with 12 days not covered with organizations to help feed the homeless men coming to the Renton Salvation Army Church, where they will spend nights in January. ARISE members try and plan about a month in advance who will provide food for the homeless men, while where they stay the night is already designated. “January is hard because it is the first month after Christmas,� said Sally Cummings, an organizer. ARISE planners actually have dates through April covered, but cite the difficulty of scheduling organizations that are tied up in holiday activities. Despite the shortfall, Cummings was hopeful about the prospect of still meeting the needs of the program. “We’ll always find somebody, we always do,� she said. She described the Renton community as “wonderful about responding when you ask for help.� “There will never be a night when there isn’t food and we can use all the help that we can get,� Cummings said. Organizations and individuals willing to provide meals for the homeless shelter and services to the ARISE program are asked to call or email Cummings at 425-228-1871 or sckat4@comcast.net.

Van donated Local and national business have worked together to donate a van to Valley Cities Counseling and Consultation. Mark Lovell, marketing director for Washington’s Precision Collision Auto Body, found a wheelchair accessible van for the counseling agency to use for its homeless veterans supportive housing program at Valley Cities Landing in Auburn. The van was donated by Geico Insurance . Allstate Insurance Roadside Services paid to tow it from California to Washington and LKQ/Keystone and PPG Industries donated paint materials and replacement parts. Valley Cities Landing in Auburn will hold a Recycled Rides Ride-Away-Day from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Jan. 19 at 2516 I Street N.E. in Auburn for residents and the partners who helped make the van possible.

Making contact, engagement and gaining people’s trust is key and speaks to the whole philosophy of outreach, he said. The most exciting moment of success for Blitstein is when a client calls her for services. “That to me is great success and also when clients refer other clients,� she said. Even though Viola calls the Bridges Program still in its infancy, it has been successful with other organizations and providers becoming aware of the program and making referrals. Valley Cities gets referrals from other healthcare workers, providers, public defenders and King County jail liaisons. Karen Bergsvik cites both Valley Cities and Sound Mental Health’s outreach services in Renton for the work they do for the homeless and mentally ill. She is the human services manager for the City of Renton. Bergsvik identifies different programs at work in the city to combat homelessness. In addition to the outreach services provided by the two organizations, Renton Community Supper feeds the homeless during the week at the Renton Salvation Army. A mobile medical van, which comes to the supper, has served more than 44 people with mental and physical health problems since January, Bergsvik said. The city funds the ARISE men’s shelter program and case management through Catholic Community Services. The city also funds transitional housing through the YWCA and Multi-Service Center as well as homelessness prevention. Bergsvik thinks it’s important to distinguish between the chronic homeless single person with chemical dependency issues and family homelessness. “Often the chronically homeless individuals are the ones that do not necessarily want to be helped and are the ones that cycle in and out of jail,� she said. Both Viola and Bergsvik say that such

cases cost the most in terms of care because they cycle through emergency rooms and jails tapping more public resources. “For family homelessness, there is the new way that services will be delivered beginning in February, which is really exciting,� Bergsvik said. The Community Information Line 211 - will be the only point of entry for families that need shelter, she said. Catholic Community Services would then follow up with an assessment and the family would be placed in housing that best fits their needs. In 2010 nearly 14,000 households lost their homes to foreclosure, a report by the United Way of King County found. Plans are still developing, but Bergsvik said this will replace having to call shelters daily to find out who has a vacancy. Each shelter may or may not have the mix of services that a family needs. The need to supply services to both the chronically homeless and recently displaced remains great because of the state’s economy. “I believe we will see more mentally ill on the streets since treatment has been cut and we are seeing more homeless already,� Bergsvik said. Budget reductions in mental health funding in 2009, 2010 and 2011 continue to hurt the vulnerable in King County, found that same report by the United Way of King County and members of the State of Human Services Steering Committee of King County. It found that the county has already cut mental health services to 325 people who are not covered by Medicaid and reduced a range of other services including crisis appointments, residential treatment and homeless outreach. But, the call to action remains the same for those dedicated to the fight. Valley Cities is looking at expanding its offices in Renton because it is seeing more people from the region in Renton, Viola said. Blitstein, who reports to Viola, sees hope in the community for their Bridges Program. “I think there’s greater awareness thankfully of the homeless plight,� Blitstein said. She pointed out the homeless now include those people making minimum wages and living in their cars. With first and last month and deposit money to be raised, they often times don’t make enough money for rent. “I would say no, I don’t think that there is enough resources, but I think the awareness is helping raise everyone’s consciousness that more needs to be done,� she said.

Residents of King County will see an increase in their garbage bills starting Jan. 1 to help pay for the ongoing modernization of the county’s garbage-hauling system. The county charges waste haulers by the ton to dump garbage at the county’s transfer stations, including the one in Renton. That charge will go from $95 to $109 a ton. To cover that increase, the average residential customer who puts a can of garbage per week at the curb will likely see an increase of about 82 cents per month in the garbage bill from their hauler to cover the new disposal fees. The minimum amount that self-haulers will pay will increase from $17.25 to $20. The rates for recycling services were not increased, according to Doug Williams, a spokesman for the county’s department of Natural Resources and Parks. The county’s modernization includes the eventual closure of its transfer station in the Renton Highlands, which is included in the county Solid Waste Division comprehensive plan adopted in 2006. That plan also calls for the closure of the transfer stations in Algona and at Houghton, near Kirkland. Waste haulers and self-haulers from the Renton area could use either Bow Lake transfer station or the Factoria station. Both are within nine miles of the existing transfer station, which was the goal of the comprehensive plan. A date to close the Renton transfer station hasn’t been firmly set, Williams said, but the closure wouldn’t happen before the opening of the new expanded Bow Lake station planned for the fall of 2013. The

World Group Securities, Inc. Member FINRA/SIPC

Bow Lake station in Tukwila, just off Orillia Road at Interstate 5, remains open for garbage haulers, but there are no recycling services there. The county also leaves open the option of keeping the Renton station, if its closure meant leaving Renton and surrounding rural areas underserved. The Factoria transfer station also will undergo modernization. That work will begin in mid-2013 and take about 18 months, Williams said. The county also plans to build two new transfer stations in about 2018. The new fee applies to residents of King County who pay for curbside collection service or who use a county transfer station and live outside the cities of Seattle and Milton, which are part of separate solid waste handling systems. This is just the second increase in a dozen years, and King County’s disposal fee will remain lower than those in Seattle, Tacoma and Pierce County, according to the county. King County is in the midst of a modernization program that will update its 1960s-era network of transfer stations to meet the needs of residential self-haulers, businesses and garbage collection companies. To date, the Vashon, Enumclaw and Shoreline transfer stations have all been renovated or replaced. Finally, the Algona, Renton and Houghton transfer stations will be closed and two new stations will be built in about 2018. King County operates eight transfer stations, two drop-boxes and the Cedar Hills Regional Landfill. Learn more about the Solid Waste Division at www.kingcounty. gov/solidwaste.

“Doesn’t mean I want to.“ Loren Sherman, who is homeless and living on the streets of Renton

We have reduced crime and improved the sense of safety in a number of areas. We passed new ordinances that allowed our officers to remove troublemakers from our parks and trails for long periods of time, added volunteer park rangers and reduced incidents of graffiti by nearly 60 percent. In addition, we have made significant strides with the Sunset area revitalization plan. Among our greatest achievements have been our efforts to engage and involve our community in city planning. We created the first-ever community budget advisory group to assist us in reshaping city service priorities during these difficult financial times, and engaged our citizens with the Pro-Parks Plan and Community Planning Initiative as we plan for the future. We also made great progress in partnering with our diverse community through our Cultural Liaison Group, comprised of representatives from most of Renton’s ethnic groups. It has been gratifying to receive many comments from our residents praising the quality of service provided by our employees, from maintaining our parks and facilities and addressing public safety concerns, to the continued efforts by our public works staff to improve our roads and sidewalks. We have continued to help attract new businesses to our city, and our special events including Renton River Days, Farmer’s Market and 4th of July Fireworks at Gene Coulon Park experienced record crowds this year. As I enter my second term in the mayor’s of-

fice, I anticipate more challenging times ahead. The recovery from this recession has proven to be very slow and we expect several more years of tight budgets. It’s critically important that we all chip in and help those in need in our neighborhoods and support our local businesses. Despite these difficult times, there are many reasons to be optimistic. The economy is improving and I firmly believe our future is bright. Local retailers and auto dealers are already reporting growth in sales. Renton is positioned well to take advantage of the economic recovery in the next couple years. The news that the 737 MAX will be built in our city has helped to generate excitement and renewed enthusiasm. And all of this equates into more local jobs. New apartment complexes are quickly filling up and The Landing continues to attract new merchants and restaurants. New businesses will be opening in the downtown and a hotel is planned near the Seahawk headquarters. Permits are on the rise for new housing and the city will soon break ground on three major roadway construction projects totaling more than $30 million, funded primarily through federal funds. Better days are ahead! Best wishes for a healthy and prosperous new year. We look forward to serving our residents and businesses in 2012.

COMMENTARY

Question of the week:

As 2011 comes to an end, I can’t help but wonder where this year has gone, or the fact that my first term in office is up in just a few days. As we often hear, time goes by fast when you’re having “fun.” And while I admit that these past years have been interesting, challenging and sometimes exciting, fun is not a word that quickly comes to mind. When I first entered office in 2008, I had the opportunity to welcome the Seattle Seahawks to our city and participate in ribbon cuttings at The Landing and the Federal Reserve Bank. These were fun and exciting times in Renton; but within just a few short months, it became very evident that we would be hit hard by the economic crisis that was spreading throughout the country. Just like the business community, we have been reassessing how we serve the public, learning what services are most important to our citizens, reducing expenses and finding new, more efficient ways of doing business. To deal with lower revenues, we have reduced our workforce by 14 percent while serving a population that grew during this same period from 56,000 to more than 90,000 people. And we cut several million dollars from our annual budget projections in order to operate within our means, while not recklessly spending money that we have in reserve in the event of a major emergency. It has been a very challenging four years for local government, as it has for local businesses and our citizens. We have all struggled through the worst recession to face our nation since the Great Depression, which has resulted in the loss of many jobs, failed businesses, foreclosures of family homes and the loss of retirement security for many seniors. We have made a lot of changes in the way we do business here at city hall, and I feel we have made great progress in improving efficiency while protecting vital services that are important to our residents and businesses. The city is blessed to have a dedicated workforce committed to providing quality service to our citizens.

Renton

Letters to the editor No to more tax dollars for schools There are many homeowners living on a fixed income and whose main source of income is a monthly Social Security check.

For those of us who are on a budget, live in a modest home less than 1,000 square feet and have survived the recession by the skin of our teeth, why should we be the ones to foot the bill for a badly run school system? The amount I am paying through my property taxes is already more

than I can afford. Now we are being asked to pay more. The city is replacing a perfectly good library in Renton, costing us an additional $18 million of our hard earned dollars; now they want us to pay for a new school that many cannot afford.

Let them find the money somewhere else. More money, and more technology won’t fix the problem of poor quality teaching, and an inefficient school system.

What if money was no object? I

f money were no object, what’s one thing you would do to fix Renton?” That’s exactly what I asked a few locals this month after reading a similar question posed in the Seattle Magazine. I knew Rentonites with our passion could at the very least generate some thought-provoking ideas. I invite readers to continue the dialogue by contributing their “two cents” at www.rentonreporter.com. Carolyn Ossorio

Renton:

Gaming

to ensure they developed the co-operation skills necessary to keep moving Renton forward. Lastly, any business or administrative leaders would have to prove their intellectual competence by competing successfully in Magic: The Gathering matches with Wizards employees.

A vibrant downtown that charms

capital of the world

Cheryl Danza, owner, CD Danza Salon & Spa Wizards of the Coast

Greg Leeds, president, Wizards of the Coast With unlimited funds, the one thing I would do is make Renton the global capital of the game industry. This, of course, would require a few steps. First, we would ask every educational institution in the city what they need to become world class and then give it to them. This would allow us to generate the home grown creative and technological talent needed for the game industry to flourish and make Renton attractive for game industry parents. Next, we’d build a public transit system that efficiently linked Renton to every nearby city to take advantage of the resources from around the area. Public trains would offer free board, card and digital games to encourage networking. Through city incentives, we would encourage other game companies from around the world to set up HQ in Renton. All this would be enough to create a self-sustaining virtuous circle in which the city could invest to improve the quality of life for inhabitants which in turn would attract more good game workers and even more successful taxpaying and job creating companies. Serious gamers at heart are social, generous and community oriented. As the game industry grows in Renton, more and more citizen time and talent would be available to help solve the city’s social challenges. Soon all providers of social services would have the capacity to meet the needs of all residents. Politicians would be required to participate in a regular Dungeons & Dragons game group

I would create a vibrant downtown with shops as diverse as its citizens. I see art, clothing, break dancing, live music four or five days/nights a week, a magic store, jewelry, clothes, good food. I see little kids enjoying jaw breakers and smiling faces. Painted murals by a local artist, a community garden that all can walk through and lend a hand. The downtown core is developed and restored. A place where the community goes, because of its charm. The community likes what’s happening and there’s always something going on.

with half-day pre-k programs at 3 years old, increase to full-day programs at kindergarten and continue the focus through either college or trade school, whichever best fits the individual child’s aptitude. I would ensure every child has a balanced and healthy breakfast and lunch so they can be ready to learn. Education would be fully funded for all children through either their college bachelor degree or completion of a trade skill and each child would have an individual learning plan that teaches to the way the child learns best. The school day would become longer by two hours and the school year would be year round, with a two-week break after each quarter. Class sizes would be reduced to a maximum of 16 students per class, with each classroom having a teacher and a teacherin-training. Specialists would augment the classroom teacher. Teacher pay would be a competitive base salary with performance incentives that reward learning results. Would operate a PR campaign to make a career in education attractive to many more people. The curriculum would have a heavy math, science and writing emphasis, but music, arts and sports would not be left out so as to create a well rounded individual. Spanish and Chinese language education would begin in the pre-k classroom. The school curriculum would be designed to encourage critical and creative thinking in order to develop problem- solving skills where mistakes and errors are celebrated as much, if not more, than “getting the right answer.”

Make Cedar a backdrop to stores

A magical solution for downtown

Norma Cugini,

Community leader

Back when I was in high school many years ago we had a real downtown. Talk to all the oldies who gathered at the Robert’s corner. Talk to Jerry at Renton Western Wear. Charles Divelbiss. We’ve been doing this for 30 years. Where’s the progress???? I would think up some magical solution to revitalize old downtown Renton!!!

Charles G. Divelbiss, owner, St. Charles Place Antiques and Restoration I would purchase all the houses along the Cedar River and make a shopping district with the ideas Kent and the Landing have done. All the buildings facing the river would have the large glass windows/doors that open like sliding-glass doors. I would also have a River Tram (sky ride) up and down the river making stops at each shop/restaurant.

If funding was without limits, I would bring a theme park to Renton on the scale of Six Flags. The park would be dedicated to man’s triumph over gravity through aviation. There would be antique planes to see, a huge I-Max theater with spectacular documentary films revolving around aeronautical adventures. This could be associated with an enlarged and revamped Aeronautical Museum. There would be exciting rides to attract old and young with all the family friendly services of a typical amusement park. Perhaps it could be located in the Highlands or incorporated with Gene Coulon Park. Renton could become the “City of Airplanes” with attractions scattered about the area. (There’s nothing plain about the city of airplanes!) Scheduled air shows would be at the Renton Airport, which would [ more NO OBJECT page 8 ]

What if money was no object? [ NO OBJECT from page 6] have a top pilot’s school – THE destination to learn how to fly. With unlimited funding, there would be a huge advertising budget to draw people here from all over the world. Many jobs would open up, and the stores downtown would soon be re-furbished and occupied with boutiques and restaurants and bed and breakfasts to support the influx of tourism. The Landing would have the upscale shops and Landing condos – something like a Hilton or Marriott resort. There would be a unique landmark – perhaps on one of the hills – that could be seen from the sky – something like a huge airplane that gives a brand mark for Renton.

Get people

moving If money were no object the one thing I would do for Renton is bring light rail to all of South King County with a special emphasis on the 405/167 corridor. I would also complete the expansion of 405

between Renton and Bellevue. Both of these projects are vital to Renton’s economic future because of the impact they have on our ability to move around people and goods. While our neighboring city to the north grabs all the headlines for its struggles with transportation, the residents in Renton and South King County struggle everyday with a transportation system that would be perfect if our population growth were at 1990 levels, but with South King County and Renton growing faster than expected, our transportation system doesn’t meet our needs. Throughout my campaign, I spoke with many citizens who work in south/east King

Our downtown has so much po-

What a great opportunity to dream about what you could do if money was no object, especially during the worst financial period we’ve experienced since the Great Depression. If money was no object, I would make sure that every child in our community had access to a quality education and successful future by making sure that their basic needs of housing, food, clothing, healthcare and parental support, (with adult mentors if needed), was being met.

I have had many uplifting experiences where a person comes into my office wanting a single tooth fixed and later they found a completely new lease on life. “I used to look hot said one lady in her 50’s, now I look like my mom�. Her teeth were yellow to brown, uneven, longer than before due to gum recession and the edges were straight and flat due to a lot of wear over the years. We took pictures, evalu-

ated her teeth on the computer and designed a new smile for her. After a few comfortable visits in the dental chair under oral sedation, her smile was transformed into a beautiful masterpiece. She was so excited about her new smile that she decided to get an new hair style and new make up. Instantly she looked ten years younger. We can tell that she feels so much better about her life because

Most Americans are aware on some level of the benefits of physical activity in controlling weight, and reducing the risk of diseases like diabetes and heart disease. But, as one of many baby boomers, I am paying more attention to the other positive health benefits of physical activity. Doing aerobic and strengthening activities slows bone density

sleep contributes to weight gain, because instead of using sleep to refuel our body, we use food. Also, recently scientists are finding more clues that high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes may increase a person’s risk of getting Alzheimer’s disease. As a baby boomer, I want to feel and stay youthful forever, but if that’s impossible, then I’ll do whatever I can to come close.

A year ago, Hazen wrestling coach Rory Magana’s father Rodney sat on the sideline and watched as the Highlanders faced off in a double dual. This year the same event will be held at Hazen, but the seat will be empty. Diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in October 2010, Rodney passed away at 55 years old June 18, 2011. It’s because of that loss that Magana has turned the double dual match into the Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Night at Hazen Jan. 13. “A big part of the problem is that there isn’t much awareness,” Magana said. “With awareness comes funding and with funding comes improvement.” The double dual wrestling tournament features the Highlanders, Oak Harbor, Highline and Chief Sealth. Doors open at 5 p.m. and donations will be accepted at the door for the entry fee. There will be informational booths set up, a bake sale and other small fundraising items. Magana will give a short introduction speech and the wrestling will start at 6 p.m. “It will be on a smaller scale since it’s our first year,” Magana said. “We’re just aiming for raising awareness and a little bit of funding.” Despite being the fourth-leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States, just two percent of the National Cancer Institute’s research budget went to pancreatic cancer research in 2010, according to the Hirshberg Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research. Treatment options are limited unless the cancer is caught very early, which is unusual since there are few specific symptoms for pancreatic cancer. Surgical removal of the tumor is an option less than 20 percent of the time. Because of this, pancreatic cancer has the highest mortality rate of all major cancers at 94 percent within the

first five years of diagnosis, according to the Hirshberg Foundation. It is one of few cancers for which the survival rate has not improved greatly in the past 40 years. Numbers like these left Magana and his family in shock last October when his father was diag-

nosed with Stage 4 pancreatic cancer that had already spread to his liver. “It feels like you’re just dropped out in the middle of the desert,” he said. “Like you’re left for dead with no hope.” Magana hopes that raising awareness, and then funding, will help the cause, so that others don’t have to go through the same frustrations. “I remember when I was younger, breast cancer was almost like a death sentence,” Magana, 27, said. “Now that’s changed and it all started with people being aware of the situation.”

Police investigated an alleged rape involving two special education department students from an area high school on Dec. 12. One 16-year-old female student reported to a counselor that she had been raped by another 16-year-old female student over the weekend while the two babysat other children together. Police found inconsistencies in the victim’s story. It was discovered that a sexual encounter did occur, but it was consensual. It was only reported by the victim as rape because she didn’t want it to look like she cheated on her other girlfriend. No arrests were made in the case.

When confronted again by store employees, the suspect fled again on foot. The driver of the truck claimed not to know what was going on and called the suspect on the phone to come turn himself in to police. Eventually, the suspect came back to the store with his mother. He explained that he took the wire because he is out of work and times are tough. The suspect was issued a citation for theft, fourth-degree assault and trespassed from the store for a year.
