Murder trial begins in Alajawan’s killing BY DEAN A. RADFORD dradford@rentonreporter.com

The defense team of the man charged with killing 12-year-old Alajawan Brown will try to prove that another man actually killed the Skyway boy in April 2010. The trial of Curtis John Walker of Kent got under way this week in King County Superior Court in downtown Seattle. He is charged with first-degree murder; since his arrest he has been jailed in Seattle on $5 million bail. A jury of 15 was seated Wednesday, including three alternates. It was the opening arguments on Wednesday that set the stage

for what the jury and the public would hear in the courtroom during the next three weeks or so. Alajawan died after he was shot in the back while walking home from a bus stop on Martin Luther King Jr. Way. He had just bought new football cleats at Walmart for a sport he loved. Gunfire had erupted at an apartment complex on South 129th Street. Walker drove off from that complex toward the 7-11 store on Martin Luther King Way. Senior Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Jessica Berliner in her opening arguments said that Walker got out of his wife’s Cadillac and shot twice at Alajawan,

hitting him once. Alajawan survived long enough to run to the 7-11 parking lot. “He decided to kill him,” said Berliner, in arguing Walker’s action was premeditated. Alajawan was dressed in blue, the gang color of the Crips, and his shooting was in retaliation for a shooting just a few minutes earlier, Berliner argued. The child was not a gang member. “He was in the wrong place at the wrong time,” Berliner said of Alajawan. But one of Walker’s attorney’s, Jerry Stimmel, argued that Alajawan was shot by Rodrigues Rabun, who was also at the apartment complex with Walker.

35 737s a month: It’s party time! If you ever want to cut through a dense crowd I highly recommend following a news camera man—as I did the other day at the Renton Boeing Plant. My media badge was swinging around my neck like a monkey as

the local camera man cut through a sea of Boeing employees like an ice breaker in the Bering Sea. I had intended on writing a column about kids and aviation. Like most people I had heard of the amazing things going on at Boe-

ing: the new accelerated production rate of building 35 737 each month (from 31.5) a feat that helped secure the recent deal to build the new 737 Max in Renton. [ more 737 page 8 ]

Gubernatorial candidate Jay Inslee visited Renton Technical College’s campus last week and heard from students and instructors on the present state of education. Inslee, who represents the state’s 1st District in Congress, got a quick tour of selected campus programs and then sat down for a roundtable discussion with students, RTC Board of Trustees member Susan Palmer and RTC President Steve Hanson. Inslee’s opponent, Rob McKenna, visited the campus recently as well. “I thought they both did a great job – lots of good questions and good interaction with the students, very appreciative of the students and the work that they’re doing,” said Hanson.

Rep. Maxwell to stand by full school year, reforms BY DEAN A. RADFORD dradford@rentonreporter.com

You must do more, the state Supreme Court told the state last week, in ruling the state is not making “ample� provision to provide for the basic education of all children in Washington. The 7-2 decision came just before the state Legislature convened in a 60-day session Monday to hammer out how to save the state roughly $2 billion. The Supreme Court in its ruling left it up to the Legislature to figure out how to meet financially the state’s constitutional obligation to provide ample basic education. But, significantly, the ruling does not protect education from further budget cuts by legislators The court will retain jurisdiction over the legislature’s already-approved reforms to fix the shortfalls in funding for grades kindergarten through 12 the state will implement by 2018. This is a state issue, not a local one for school district’s such as Renton’s, because it’s the state’s constitutional duty to provide for basic education. The court’s ruling and the massive state budget deficit potentially will set up a debate among majority Democrats in the House and Senate and Gov. Chris Gregoire, who has suggested a shorter school year as one way to save money. The idea of a shorter school year was proposed last year and it was opposed by

state Rep. Marcie Maxwell, D-Renton, who is one of the Legislature’s leaders on education issues. Maxwell said she opposed cutting days from the school year which she believes would violate the state’s obligation to basic education. “As we begin the 2012 session with cutting days suggested by the governor and some legislators, this decision provides grounds to stay firm again,� she said. Maxwell was a key architect and sponsor of those reforms in 2009 and 2010, the Basic Education Reform and Funding bills, House Bill 2261 and House Bill 2776. The court’s ruling, she said, shows the justices agree those measures “will fulfill our education obligation.� Maxwell serves on the Quality Education Council that will recommend and track implementation of the reforms. “It is clear from the court decision and their continued monitoring of the budget investments that we cannot delay or dismantle 2261 and 2776,� she said. State Sen. Steve Litzow of Mercer Island, like Maxwell, represents the Legislature’s 41st District. He is the ranking minority member of the Senate Early Learning and K-12 Education Committee. Litzow said in a news release he believes bipartisan support will exist for legislation that will satisfy the Supreme Court’s requirements and “get us closer to the world-class education system we need and our students deserve.

Students at Lindbergh High School kicked-off what officials hope is a new trend in healthy eating in the Renton School District. A new healthy eating campaign debuted last week during the students’ lunches, the result of a partnership between Public Health - Seattle, King County and the school district. During lunch time at Lindbergh, students pledged what they would do to “change for the good� and learned about the district’s new apple icon. The icon, placed next to two to three daily menu options, denotes entrees that meet the district’s new “healthy is happy� nutrition standards. “What we want them to do now is look for those choices on the menu, select them on their own and not be forced to choose items they don’t want,� said Kira Acker, district nutrition services and warehouse manager. Students visited booths in the commons area of Lindbergh and collected free goodie bags containing bottled water, apples, Cliff Bars and nutrition information. They took pictures in a photo booth in front of the new apple icon and with teachers dressed in costumes.

Derogatory language litters vandalized car

tcompton@rentonreporter.com

A Renton woman’s car was vandalized on Dec. 23. Police were sent to a residence in the 12200 block of Southeast Petrovitsky Road to investigate malicious mischief at 9:48 a.m. There, a 31-year-old woman reported that all four of the tires on her 1999 black Acura had been slashed. The woman observed that all of her tires were flat as the vehicle sat in the parking lot across from her residence. She also noticed pieces of 12inch by 9-inch, white, printer paper all over her car with derogatory language and a warning against contact with her written on them. The woman told police she had some idea who was responsible. Police planned to obtain video security camera footage Jan. 3 of the area in which the vehicle sat. The total damages were estimated to be worth $800.

Bomb threat at office for juvenile probation

A bomb threat was called into the Superior Court Juvenile Probation Office in Renton on Dec. 28. At about 4:30 p.m., a juvenile probation counselor called police to report the incident. On Dec. 27 at about 1:45 p.m., the counselor answered the phone to hear a caller state,�Yeah, I’m gonna blow you the (expletive) up.� Then the caller hung up. The counselor was told by his supervisor that there was a bomb threat to the Seattle Juvenile Court the day before.

Drug seizure at Renton High School

Police seized marijuana and reported a Renton student under investigation for dealing drugs on Dec. 15. Renton High School officials discovered the marijuana and empty baggies intended for sale on the 18-year-old student shortly

before 10:30 a.m. They smelled the drug on the student and he confessed to having it in his backpack. The student was cooperative with police and explained that he has about five clients at the school and others away from school. He used to sell these “dime bags� of marijuana for $10 each. Police questioned the young man, but decided not to book him into jail because he was cooperative and because of the time of year. Police did however file his report with the prosecutor for felony charges of possession with intent to deliver marijuana. The seized drugs and empty baggies were placed in evidence.

Intoxicated man lands in jail for assault, mischief An intoxicated Seattle man assaulted his girlfriend and her family on Jan. 1. Police were called to a residence in the 200 block of Williams Avenue North just before 8 a.m. The 22-year-old Seattle man was seen rolling on the floor grabbing and hitting his girlfriend’s mother as she responded back physically. Police could smell the strong odor of intoxicants coming from the man. After he was handcuffed, he had trouble standing and threw up on the floor. He apparently came to the home intoxicated that morning, disturbed his girlfriend by knocking on a bedroom window. He attempted to pull her out of the window and she struggled away. Then the man started banging on the front door and eventually broke a window. He then held his girlfriend by her hair and punched her in the face, according to the woman’s mother. The mother then attempted to stop the 22-year-old and got into a physical fight with him.

A Renton woman was harassed by her ex-boyfriend on Jan. 1. The 24-year-old woman recently ended a year and a half relationship with a 36-year-old, Seattle man she told police just after 8 p.m. She called them because she returned home from a weekend trip to discover a window broken out of her apartment. The woman suspected her exboyfriend because he sent text messages threatening her property, safety and the safety of her son. One of the texts read, “have fun in ocean shores enjoy ur apt when u get back.� Because of this message, police believe the man knew about damage to her apartment or was even the one who did it. The man also mentioned that he would kill the woman in several texts and harm her son. The man was cited via compliant for investigation of harassment domestic violence for knowingly threatening his ex-girlfriend and her son with bodily injury and death.

Commentary

Question of the week:

I no sooner got my new 2012 calendar on the wall, when my brother asked me, “Are you prepared?� i1SFQBSFEGPSXIBU w*BTLFE)FSFQMJFE ić  FFOEPG the world on Dec. 21, 2012.� I checked my pre-printed calendar to see if it was marked as a special event for 2012 - for surely something of that magnitude would be mentioned. But it wasn’t. However, ever since then I began noticing the many articles, websites, documentaries, books, movies and media hype already alarming us of this prediction. "QQBSFOUMZUIFBODJFOU.BZBOiMPOHDPVOUwDBMFOEBS of 5,126 years runs out on that date. So they acted like it would be the end of the world, ignoring the possibility of buying a new one. ć  JTJTUSVMZBGFBTUGPSUIFNFEJBXJUIUXPDBUBT trophes in one year – a presidential election and an apocalypse. Frankly, I’m not sure I can tell the difference – but I digress. Realistically, how do I prepare for such an event? For example, what should I wear on that date – black for mourning or light pastel colors to acknowledge a joyful life? Should I continue paying my life insurance premiums, since there will be no benefactors left? For sure I’ll cut back on purchasing too many “Forever� stamps from the post office. And, the good news is I’ll be able to eat whatever I want this year without worrying if it will shorten my lifespan. Unfortunately, many people and children are beginning to have anxiety attacks over this pending EPPNć  FSFBSFNBOZJOEVTUSJPVTBOEXFBMUIZQFPQMF building underground bunkers and apartments for their friends and relatives. And, of course, there a lot of shysters willing to prey on our fears and separate us from our money to help us prepare. So, if I was convinced this was going to happen, how would I prepare? I once had a manager who, in a fit of anger, swore at me. Humiliated and hurt by his profanity and anger, I got enough nerve to respond in kind – with profanity and anger. &WFSZPOFIFBSEUIFFYDIBOHFBOEDPNQMFUFTJMFODF DBNFPWFSUIFSPPN/PUIJOHNPSFXBTTBJEUIBU afternoon and we all left for our Christmas break. A week later everyone returned, except one - my manager. He died over the holiday. ć  FTIPDLPGIJTEFBUIIJUNFWFSZIBSEBOEBMM kinds of things went through my head. He hadn’t appeared to be ill, so what caused his death? Did my ugly words affect him? Are these the words I would say to someone if I knew it was their last day on earth? His sudden death taught me a lesson. Sometimes the littlest things people do bother us and we make a big deal about it. I still get angry at times, but more often than not, I try to give the situation the litmus test. Is this really that important that I should make an issue of it? What if it was their last day on earth? What if it was mine? If we believe the media, that day is just 11 months away, or not. ć  FSFBMJUZJTUIBUTPPOFSPSMBUFS XIFUIFSXFEJFBT a civilization in a single event with ample warning or we die alone, unexpectedly – that day will come. So I’m not going to let the hype bother me or make any special plans this year. I’ll just pretend it’s everybody’s last year and be kinder, apply the litmus test more liberally, not sweat the small stuff and enjoy one day at a time. I think if I do that, I’ll be prepared.

COMMENTARY

Renton schools raise bar, deserve community support BY JOHN GALLUZZO Chair, Citizens for Renton Schools

As a local business owner and 2011 past chairman of the Renton Chamber of Commerce, I understand the importance that a quality education system has on the vitality of a community, its children and its importance in attracting and keeping businesses and families, as well as its positive impact on property values which benefits all of us. Without a doubt, the Renton School District has and continues to demonstrate a quality track record that makes Renton (and surrounding communities within the district) a place where business owners can look to relocate and tout as a perk to prospective employees. As examples: tć  FEJTUSJDUIBTBHSBEVBUJPOSBUFPG percent for three consecutive years; t-BTUZFBS BMMFMFNFOUBSZTDIPPMT increased test scores: 70 percent improved state test scores in mathematics and science by 20 percentage points or more; tć  FEJTUSJDUIBTSFDFJWFEBVEJUBXBSET for financial management and reporting for eight consecutive years; tQFSDFOUPGUFBDIFSTNFFUUIFGFEFSBM definition of “highly qualified;â€? t/FBSMZQFSDFOUPGUFBDIFSTIPMENBT ter’s degrees; an additional two dozen this year joined the 60 others who have meet UIFSJHPSPVTTUBOEBSETUPCFDPNF/BUJPOBM Board Certified teachers; and t0VSTVQFSJOUFOEFOUXBT8BTIJOHUPO State’s 2011 Superintendent of the Year and the school board was awarded the state’s 2011 Board of Distinction. -FUNFUBLFKVTUBNJOVUFUPXBMLZPV through these three important issues that we are asking for your support on. ć  F&EVDBUJPO.BJOUFOBODFBOE0QFSB tions Replacement levy simply continues on where the current levy leaves off, meeting the daily needs of the district from

[8] January 13, 2012

[ 737 from page 2] I thought it would be fun to bring the kids on a tour and learn about Renton’s rich aviation history. I discovered that tours aren’t allowed at the Renton plant (public tours are available at Boeing’s Everett plant). But Linda Lee, 737 Program Communications Manager was nice enough to invite me to join a party celebrating the accomplishments of Boeing employees this past Tuesday. Security is so tight at the Boeing plant that reporters are shuttled over to the building that overlooks the shores of Lake Washington and houses the 737 manufacturing lines. I wasn’t sure what to expect as we walked inside the darkened hangar where a thin crack of light streaming through the gargantuan hangar door was the only tell that it was just 9:30 am.

Not in my wildest imagination would I have ever expected to experience flashing strobes, hazy smoke, and jet engines hanging from chains artfully like sides of beef at the hippest rave concert. Live music cranked out of speakers at a decibel that would rival any U2 concert. The mood of the employees was as high as the American flag displayed proudly. Our group headed toward the flag and the projected screen of Chase Mckinney rocking on a stage somewhere up front. When we surfaced at the head of the crowd there was a dais and behind that, looming “large and in charge� was the 35th airplane to be produced at the new rate of 35 737 per month. A slogan signed by hundreds of employees was pinned to the planes gleaming silver fuselage like an honorary badge. It said: Team 737 Rocks to 35 a month. Boeing 737 program vice president and general manager Beverly Wyse took the stage wearing a colorful t-shirt that said Boeing 737

M. The mood was exciting and hopeful. Wyse inspired all with praise. Because of the combined efforts of employees who created and implemented new lean efficiencies critical to meet order demands. As well as partnerships between suppliers, fabrication divisions, the union and key federal, state and local divisions were celebrated as the reason that the 737 MAX will be developed and manufactured here in Renton. Wyse said. The market will demand 23,000 single aisle airplanes over the next 20 years and Boeing has plans to capture half of that market. Which means decades of production in Renton. 38 a month in 2013 42 a month 2014 And someday 60 a month ‌ that’s how many our customers will need in the future.â€? “You made this happen!â€? Wyse exclaimed amid employee cheers. “That’s how we’re taking 737 to the MAX!â€? Wyse said as light-weight beach balls began raining from high above via a crane.

Boeing employees kept the momentum alive by volleying the balls through the air like corn kernels in a popcorn popper. Soon after the immense hangar door slowly opened, letting in light as the crowd dispersed to enjoy music and tasty cupcakes before heading back to work. I made a bee-line for those hanging engines I’d glimpsed earlier in the dark. “Could you take my picture in front of one of these?� I asked standing in front of a huge jet engine. “Sure.� The man said. I knew I had just outed myself as the ultimate tourist. But one look at that magnificent specimen of human engineering and I couldn’t help uttering, “This looks like the engine on the Space Shuttle!� The man I’d wrangled into taking my picture turned out to be Kenneth Balls, senior manager, 737 Propulsion Value Stream. “Would you like a tour?� he asked pointing to a row of exposed jet engines. “Would I!� I learned a lot that day.

Boeing party beyond my imagination

www.rentonreporter.com How redesigning a door handle can save millions of dollars and exchanging rolls of carpet on an airplane for carpet squares can streamline the process and are easier to replace when â€œâ€Ś kids throw up.â€? All the practical things the average traveler doesn’t think about. And yet all these “littleâ€? things add up and are examples of efficiencies put in place by employees. Walking back to the press van an employee riding a tricycle-type bike cruised by — one of many I’d seen peddling around the large Boeing plant. I asked the driver about them. “Employees ride them around the plant to transport small parts in an effort to save money, streamline the process and are more environmentally friendly than cars,â€? he said. Sitting in the van I took a moment to reflect on the experience. It was a little like finding out the smartest kid in school was also the coolest. “Hey, did you hear that Kraft, GE and Boeing were Jim Cramer’s top three picks,â€? our driver said to another employee enthusiastically before sliding the van door shut. I felt myself smile as I realized it had been a long time since I had heard anyone excited about stocks again.

As of Tuesday, Jan. 10, Boeing is now building a record 35 737s a month, including this one for norwegian.com. Boeing

Boeing now at 35 737s Boeing reached its firstever production rate of 35 airplanes a month for the Next-Generation 737 at its Renton plant Tuesday, with the delivery of the first airplane produced at the new rate to AWAS Aviation Services, Inc. Norwegian Air Shuttle will lease the airplane from AWAS. The 35th airplane demonstrates that the production system has been operating successfully at a rate of 35 airplanes a month, according to a Boeing press release. Employees will focus on stabilizing the production rate at 35 a month while investments are under way to go up in rate to 38 737s a month in second quarter 2013 and 42 a month in the first half of 2014, according to Boeing.

Renton teen starring in ‘Godspell’ BY GABRIELLE NOMURA gnomura@bellevuereporter.com

Jake Nicholson of Renton has been involved with Village Theatre’s KIDSTAGE program for the past three years. Gabrielle Nomura, Bellevue Reporter

Although the confident highschool senior doesn’t show it – Jake Nicholson is nervous. It’s Jan. 7, opening night of “Godspell� at First Stage Theatre in Issaquah, and he plays a leading role – Judas. He hopes he’ll be able to say his lines with finesse, and whip out that darn double pirouette in one of the dance numbers. But when Nicholson takes the stage at 7:30 p.m., that fear gives way to an adrenaline rush. This is why he loves to perform. The naturally talented singer has been involved with Village Theatre’s KIDSTAGE program for the past three years, in addition to acting in community theater in his hometown, Renton. But recently, he’s been working hard to improve the dance element of musical theater performance. Thanks to Village Theatre’s Institute, a program started a year ago for youth in grades 6 to 20 years, Nicholson is becoming the triple

threat he’ll need to become to make it in show biz. From 3:45-10 p.m. each Monday night, Nicholson and his friends can be found here, at First Stage Theatre for their institute classes. Nicholson is able to connect with these likeminded young people better than many of his classmates at Bellevue Christian School. “I pick them up and we get dinner together,� he said. In addition to performing in many of the KIDSTAGE productions, the institute students work with instructors to improve their acting and vocal techniques, and even their high kicks and pirouettes. The program includes a college prep course for those like Nicholson, who hope to make musical theater a career. Nicholson will audition for top programs at University of Michigan, Ithaca and Carnegie Mellon this winter, and then learn where he was accepted in March. The performer, who has had leading roles in “High School Musical 2� and “Hairspray,� says he’s trying to

DIRECTORY

keep an open mind about where he’ll land for his undergraduate education. Eventually, he’d like to play Lumière in “Beauty and the Beast,â€? on Broadway. The spirited Disney candlestick, as well as Judas in “Godspell,â€? are examples of the parts Nicholson likes. “It’s a balance of that funny guy, plus, really good songs,â€? says the teen, who decided he wanted a career in the performing arts last year. Despite that becoming a starving artist in a down economy is “absolutely terrifying,â€? Nicholson says, the Eastsider can’t wait to try his luck at Broadway someday. “This is going to sound so corny, but this is what makes me feel alive.â€? “Godspellâ€? runs into Jan. 22 at First Stage Theatre, 120 Front St. N, Issaquah.

The Liberty boys swim and dive team is off to a 3-1 start this season with its only loss coming 95-90 to perennial power Mercer Island. The Patriots also have a strong non-league win over rival Hazen. "The team looks exceptionally good this year so far," Liberty coach Kris Daughters said. "The guys are pumped for the postseason." The Patriots have five individuals (with two more close) qualified for state, and all three relays already have state cuts. Logan Briggs has six state times, with his final two exSWIM & pected soon. Luke Duschl has two state times and is a contender in the 100 back. Kevin Hays has a state time in the 100 breast, and will be a key part of Liberty's relays. Raymond Ha and Nick Klatt also have qualified for state. Hays and diver Jesse Herrild are the team's most improved athletes so far this year. Sophomore Connor Biehl has also improved quite a bit and is less than a second off of state times in three events. Herrild, Biehl, Jarrett Brown, Josh Johnson and Kyle Sargent have qualified for districts.

Renton The Indians have suffered through some nagging injuries and are off to a 1-2 start. Leaders Steve Sholdra and Tyler Pascual have been strong as always. As the regular season winds down, coach Diane Pavelin said the team hopes to "keep improving, get healthy and get a few more qualified for districts." Sholdra, the defending 2A state 500 free

champion, has already qualified for state in seven events and he should get his eighth time soon (his second straight year as an Ironman). Pascual has several district times, and all three

The Eagles are off to a 3-1 start this season. All three of the team's relays are close to qualifying for state, and coach Roger Miron hopes to have those state times very soon. "My expectations for the rest of the season are to continue working hard and qualifying as many swimmers as we can for the district meet," Miron said. "Our goal is still the same, in terms of the district meet, finishing in the top two." Lindbergh finished second at districts last year and already has 30 district-qualifying performances, from Adrian Franco-Munoz, AJ Lim, Titus Owen, Sam Seid, Connor Guhlke, Aaron Jacobsen and Jason Kane. Andrew Franco-Munoz has already qualified for state and has the second-best 2A time in the 100 fly.

Hanson said he felt that during Inslee’s visit, the congressman really wanted to understand what they are doing on campus, how the school fits into the education system and he felt Inslee really connected with students. “When you looked at the students, you could feel that they appreciated the questions that he had and the attention,� Hanson said. Inslee came to the campus because he sees Renton Technical College and others like it as the single most important factor to restoring the economy because of the job skills the schools produce. “This is an epicenter of our economic recovery because it’s taking people in a very short period of time and providing the wherewithal to keep Boeing here to build the tanker, to build the 737, to continue our software creative energies going forward,� Inslee said. “And the only way we’re going to work our way out of some of our fiscal issues is by having good jobs and you have to have good people to have good jobs.� Inslee visited a class in the college’s aerospace assembly mechanic program and met with instructor Howard Blinder. Blinder explained how many skills students learned in the program are prerequisites for working at Boeing in certain positions. Inslee asked Hanson about the link among the college’s basic-skills programs, job placement services and employment. Seventy-five to 80 percent of RTC graduates are getting jobs, Hanson said. “So, the institutions are doing a pretty good job of matching the production of skill sets with the jobs that are in fact needed,� Inslee said.

School measures on Feb. 14 ballot [ COMMENTARY from page 6] how effectively tax dollars are spent, it is important to note that with all three of these issues, the two levies and the one bond, that all funds will remain in the Renton School District for the continued improvement of our Renton schools. For our seniors on a fixed income, some our disabled community members and some of our respected veterans you may be eligible for a residential property tax exemption. Please contact the King County Assessor’s Website at (www.kingcounty.gov/Assessor/taxpayerassistance/taxrelief), or call 206-296-3920. Without a doubt, from districtwide improvements in test scores, graduation rates, capital projects which are completed on time and on budget, this district has earned our trust as exceptional stewards of these public funds. I believe it is so important for all of us in the Renton Community that we continue to provide our PROVEN Renton School District the necessary funds to continue on this great path which provides all children of the Renton School District with an education we can all be proud of. I thank you for taking your time to read this and ask you for your support and vote for these three important issues on Feb. 14. Let’s keep the great momentum in our favor. VOTE YES FOR RENTON SCHOOLS on Feb. 14th!

John Galluzzo is chair of the Citizens for Renton Schools.

January 14, 1920 – January 5, 2012

Loving father and grandfather, Jack passed away a week shy of his 92nd birthday in Redmond, WA. Dubbed “a character” by all who knew him because of his sharp wit, quick retorts, & infectious laugh, he will be dearly missed by son & daughter-in-law Steve & Marlene Schneider, grandchildren Kim & Eric Schneider, & daughter Jan Parsons. He was born in Seattle & raised in Issaquah, was a member of Kappa Sigma fraternity at UW, & a championship skier with the U of W Ski Club. He stayed active with the Ancient Skiers for many years. In the Air Force in WW II, he taught flying at Luke Field, AFB, AZ and Instructor Pilots at Randolph AFB, TX. While in AZ he married Florence McCartney, who preceded him in death in 1993 after 50 wonderful years of marriage. Their second son, Scott, died in Viet Nam. Jack & Flo lived in Renton & he worked at Boeing in Industrial Engineering & with the AOG group, where he traveled the world. He stayed active in the Air Force Reserves & received the rank of Colonel before retiring from both in 1990. He was a longtime member of the Renton Lyons & was active with the club in Crawley, England when living there. He married Olive Overbye in 1994 & the two spent many happy years golfing and enjoying friends until her death in 2010. He is also survived by step-sons Gordon and Dennis Overbye, daughter-in-law Nancy Wartik & granddaughter Mira. No services are planned.

Dr. Bobby Virk, 40, of Renton will run for the state Senate seat now held by retiring Sen. Margarita Prentice, who has endorsed Virk’s candidacy.

He is survived by 3 brothers, Raymond, Richard and William; also his 2 daughters Patricia Goodwin Sell (Richard), Joyce Goodwin Peterson (John) and 3 grandchildren, Michael Sell, Eric Peterson and Kimberly Peterson Hackman (Michael), 3 great grandchildren, John D. Peterson, Samantha Eva and Ethan M. Hackman. Plus many, many nieces and nephews. Charles was one of the 1st five original paid firemen hired by the City of Renton in 1945. He was very proud of being a Renton Firefighter and saved many people including many children. He also was proud of being part of the CCC’s (Civilian Conservation Corps) during the Depression; they built roads, bridges, trestles for trains, highways, etc. in the 1930’s. Charles was a member of St. Andrews Masonic Temple in Renton, and also Knights of Pythia’s (he never saw a Fraternal Lodge he didn’t like). Charles married Eva Attleson in 1936 and had 65 years together. They travelled the world several times, spending time with the Aboriginals of Australia, the headhunters (Mud People) of New Guinea, rode camels in the Gobi Desert; saw Carnival in Rio de Janeiro, traveled down the Li River in China on a raft. So many wonderful trips together including 14 cruises. Eva died April 18, 2001 and he missed her every day. Now he is again with his true love for eternity. Celebration of Life service will be at St. Matthews Lutheran Church on Monroe Ave. in Renton on Jan. 14, 2012 at 1 p.m. Donations can be given to the Renton Firefighter’s Widows and Orphans Fund c/o Renton Fire Dept. Renton, WA. or to Renton Historical Museum, Renton, WA. Charles and Eva were Lifetime Members of the Museum.

seat in the 11th Legislative District now held by Zack Hudgins. Hudgins of Tukwila announced in November that he will run for secretary of state, rather than seek a sixth term in the House. The 11th Legislative District includes parts of Renton, Tukwila, Seattle, Kent and unincorporated King County. “Your perspective will be presented to the Washington State Legislature with sincerity and confidence, once I am elected as an 11th Legislative

District representative,” said Flynn in a press release. Jim Flynn “Together, we can correct the existential crisis faced by many departments within the state that provide social order, services and enforcement.” Flynn has lived in South King County since his honorable discharge from the U.S. Coast Guard in 1969. Flynn said

his proudest achievement was securing a family wage job with good benefits and a great retirement. He said everyone in the 11th Legislative District should have this privilege. Flynn and his wife Lynette, a pharmacy technician, live in the Benson Hill area of Renton where he serves as a Democratic Precinct Committee officer. He has been active with the 11th Legislative Democratic Organization since 2004. Flynn’s website is http:// www.electjimflynn.com.
